My family left town today to go rock climbing in Fort Payne, AL, so I have a quiet afternoon planned. I went to Church this morning, picked up my free Redbox movie. I have built a fire and sat in front of it sorting coupons. I burned all the expired ones. I was disappointed that my newspaper had no coupons today. While sorting, I did match up coupons with the sales at Walgreens at CVS. Nothing to get real excited about.
My goal for the New Year is to track my spending. I have no idea how much money I spend on groceries and essentials. I plan to log my spending along with coupon savings. After I track this for a few months, I will set goals on reducing spending. At the end of each month I will post my results. I look forward to each of you advising me on ways to improve.
I read so many blogs where people feed their families for pennies. I want to try to do that.
