Small Successes


Danielle Bean encourages mothers to encourage each other. I would love to hear about your small successes. Here's a report from our home:

1. The hubster eradicated a tenacious computer virus. Hours and hours and hours of work.

2. Meanwhile John is the latest to battle a virus of the stomach variety. It began with Kolbe and an eventful ride in the van. My small success has been shampooing and febreezing ad nauseum (I couldn't resist!). Hours and hours and hours of work.

3. On the couponing front, I have had one great success getting about $80 worth of products for $30. The glitch, however, is that I feel I can't buy anything that isn't an amazing deal. Reality tells me that if we need bread, I had best not delay.

Ami asked for pointers. I would suggest staring out by learning the rewards program at one pharmacy. For the whole concept, check out Warning: It's a bit overwhelming!

LOL! #3 made me laugh. I haven't gone grocery shopping in almost three weeks because nothing has been on a really good sale. In the meantime the freezer and pantry are lookin' pretty bare (and we've had no bread for 2 weeks).

Great week!
