We live in TEXAS!!

FYI... 2 week break for Texas Summer Giveaway Bash... so I will be posting all about summer these two weeks and what us Texans do during the summer, besides having a blast at the beach! lol

This past week I went to check out Dollar General. Usually I only visit to pick up tape or maybe when they have a sale on soft drinks.

But since they started accepting Manufacture Coupons, I thought I'd check to see what kind of deals I could get, not to mention their Dollar General Rhythm and Race! You get points for purchasing specific products (labeled in store) and then get to redeem them for awesome prizes!




I also wanted to point out that in Texas we are always getting ready for sever weather.... Hurricanes! Dollar General has an awesome "Severe Weather Survival List" and it's an awesome list.... I keep it in my coupon binder and have checked off items that I have stocked up for Hurricane Season! Wal-Mart also had some booklets that had lots of information along with products that can help you prepare.

Here are some of my favorites on the list because we always NEED/forget them.....
  1. Extra baby wipes! (when the water gets shut down)
  2. Corded phone with a long phone wire
  3. Wooden (eco-friendly) cutlery (or plastic)
  4. Finger Splint
  5. Trash bags that smell good!
  6. Deodorant
Luckily this year the only thing we need to stock up on is trash bags and baby wipes. Using coupons year round has helped us save money so that we don't have to spend it later when the prices are higher. Be sure to have these Important Numbers hand as well.
Important numbers:
FEMA: 1-800-621-FEMA
American Red Cross: 1-866-GET-INFO
National Weather Service: 1-850-942-8833
Poison Control: 1-800-222-1222

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
