Couponing for the Rest of us
Well these past two days have been all about me :-) I know it sounds awfully selfish, but by golly it's my husband's fault. Yesterday he said, why don't you go shopping and treat yourself for Mother's Day. I was like, I would love to! So I took my little ol' self and got me some nifty clothes and shoes, really I kind of felt a little guilty because I felt I was spending too much. Well, when I got back home I told my husband the amount and he was like, that's it. I'll admit I started laughing and said, if you want me to I can go again tomorrow and spend a little more. He being the amazing husband said "yes you deserve it". What an incredible husband, and I feel very blessed to have him in my life.
Couponing for the Rest of Us by Kasey Knight Trenum is the how to guide of couponing, saving, and being thrifty. This book gives you the in's and out's of the couponing world, but levels it with scripture to help you not go over board. Kasey also hosts the blog Time 2 $ave/Time 2 Give. If you're interested in more of learning about her please click here.
You know what I loved about this book? The fact that it can fit in my purse and it's not bulky. I know that sounds slightly crazy, but sometimes financial authors can have very big books with a lot of steps that just makes life a little too confusing. Kasey does a great job at getting the essentials of couponing without all the added fat so to speak. This book is easy to read and follow. So dear readers if you are one of those wanna be couponers and you're not too sure where to start, but dream of one day being the ultimate thrifty couponing king/queen, I highly suggest this book to you :-)

Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
My sweet little ones are 4, 3, and 1. What an incredibly blessing they are. Even on days where the laundry is piled high, there's dirt on the floor from one of them playing outside and then walking into the house, or the dishes (I could have sworn that sink was empty) are over flowing on to the counter tops from just one meal :-) This is my life and yet I still get the I love you mommy, your the best mommy, or as my Kylar Marie says you're a beautiful queen mommy. Now those are blessings, and my husband who see's it all still praises me and encourages me. I pray for you sweet mother, who is reading this, that you look and here the small blessing that your children are rising up to say, or the praises that your husband might whisper to you.
