Anyway, an orange push pop was always my Popsicle of choice from the ice cream van. I found some at Walmart this week and brought them home. It brings back such fun memories and Henry loves to take a few licks. I am finally at that place in life where sharing a Popsicle is actually a joy!
It is time for corn on the cob and that makes me so happy. I love finding the happy old man on the side of the highway with the 10 for 1 buck deal, bringing them home, shucking them and putting them in the freezer for later. Grilling them is my favorite. We grilled some this week and it was so yummy! I just hate digging corn out of my teeth afterwards.
Yes, I started couponing this week. I went to this fun and informative coupon class in town last weekend and got all sorts of valuable information. I also met lots of women who coupon and have coupon swaps. Next week I have 2 coupon swaps to attend. I am laughing, but so excited!
I am just starting to build up my coupon collection. This week I saved a lot comping at Walmart and pairing some of the comps with coupons I had. I ended up buy 16 cake mixes, 12 2 liters of my joy juice (Diet Coke), 6 packages of 99% ff ground turkey, and too many other things to mention and spent what I normally spent before coupons and comping. We started quite the little stockpile this week and I love it....and Randall is liking it too!
They say it can take 2 to 3 months to build it up where you can walk in to the store each week and just buy bread, milk and produce....that is my goal! I have a folder of great couponing info I plan to share with my family and close friends who are interested in couponing also. There is truly no need to pay full price for a name brand cake mix....just sayin! And no, I will not be the crazy coupon lady who devotes a bedroom to her stockpile and has to dust it.
Happy Food Friday!
