I have been so busy lately I am getting behind on a lot of things. I am still trying to find the perfect balance in my life….I will let you know when I find it. I was busy before I started this blog. I still have just as much to do, but now I have less time to do it in. One of the things I have gotten behind on is clipping my coupon inserts. Which drives me crazy, because if I am not organized my shopping trips take me twice as long as they should. This weekend we took a road trip up to McCall. I took the 3 hour car ride to catch up on clipping and sorting my coupons. But I still have not clipped yesterdays inserts, ( all four of them)
I ran to Walgreens and of course all the weekly deals were gone, so then I rushed to Albertsons. I did not prepare like normal and plan what I was going to get. So I wandered around the store with an empty cart feeling overwheelemed and frustrated. After 30 mins in the store the only thing I walked out with was 3 boxes of zip lock bags. They were free but I felt like I had just wasted my time.
I did not take the time to get organized so I was not able to use my time effectivly. I should have taken a few minutes at home, to plan my trip like I noramly do. I then could have walked about with a whole cart load of deals. I guess I am telling you this to let you know that even I hit a road block every now and then. Do not feel over wheelmed, getting organized makes a night and day difference. It is one of the key points to saving with coupons.
