We went hiking with the Family after Stake Conference last weekend.

Addicted to Saving Money!

I'm completely addicted to Money Saving Methods
It started with the coupon craze, and now has become so much more.
There are so many things out there that will easily cut your spending more than 1/2.
It's just a matter of doing it, or just even signing up for the right programs.

Check out Money Saving Methods

This could change your entire financial situation.

Most of us are full-time 'Home-Makers'. What better thing to be doing than learning how to make/save so much money! This definitely beats getting a job!

Things I've done:
*Applied for the Chase CC to get 3% Cash back on all my purchases
*Registered for Money Exchange Revolution to get $5 back on $50 purchases
*And registered for the $50 Bonus on Sharebuilder

Coupon Deals:
Thanksgiving weekend Walgreens has Colgate for $3.49 but get $3.49 Q back for your next purchase -FREE! But, if you have any Colgate Coupons, then you will make money!
I have $4.50 in Q's. I will initially spend 12.95, but get back $17.45 in coupons off my next purchase! Collect your Colgate q's!!!

My Grant Grant is getting too big. I thought he would be my baby boy forever. Now he'll be 1 on the 30th. It's exciting to watch them learn and grow, but sad to know that life is short.

A little late for Halloween Pics, but this is all I got, so cute!

Kids at the mall. I came prepared with juice.

Free Santa Letters

Does your kid make you watch all the commercials during cartoons right now?
All morning I hear, "Mom I want this, mom look at this, I want the whole thing, mom we should get this for Dad but he will let me play with it" and on and on.

Have your kid write a letter to Santa and they will get a letter back FREE!
