A Healthy Dose of Spice
I was born and raised a farm girl in rural Minnesota where I met and married the adoration of my lifetime! Our family currently lives in a rural community in Iowa where we frequently trade stories with the family \x34back home\x34 of the likeness and differences of the slower life from one state to the next. My husband and I own our own business where we provide for our three growing daughters who are the light of our world. Writing has always been an outlet for me, starting a diary as young as 4th grade and continuing for each of my daughters currently. Writing clears my mind and my heart of things that I would rather say but don't (due to my impeccable manners) or did say and wished I hadn't (sometimes those manners fail). I am clearly outspoken and am working on being filled with grace and compassion. In my spare time my family and I enjoy reading, biking and cooking. We do NOT enjoy cold snowy weather.

I tried to use coupons.  I really did.  I printed them, I checked over my list, I was very proud of myself.  I entered the parking lot of the store and realized, to my dismay, that some of the coupons had to be redeemed at different stores.  I glanced in my rearview mirror at the three faces staring back at me and I sighed a big sigh.  I did NOT want to drag my lovlies to three different stores to save a total of $4.65.  I paid full price for almost all of my buys.  It was a sad, disappointing day.

I did tell a friend about the website I used and she was thrilled!  She has six little people and needs to save money on her buys.  So, my time was not wasted.  I will continue to look on www.coupons.com because the coupons don't expire for a while and I will eventaully get to the stores where I can use the coupons.  And then, dear reader, I will save money!
