Friday Confessional w/ Mamarazzi


I confess: Yesterday I carefully coupon matched and saved $85+ (the receipt said I saved 32% off my total purchase) on my grocery bill, which is a big deal for me. - that is not the confession part, I'm just setting the scene here - After all that I get home and am depressed because I've watched that stupid Extreme Couponing show and it kept me from feeling satisfaction in the work that I did and the money that I saved because it wasn't "extreme" enough. :-P

I confess: I get depressed whenever I have to fill out paperwork regarding my children's developmental delays, go to big doctor's appointments, etc. I think a part of me is still in denial - or wants to be in denial that they are and may always be special needs, handicapped, disabled, or whatever you want to call it. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever get over it.

I confess: I am one of those people that sits on my couch with a bowl of ice cream while I watch Biggest Loser. I know, I should be eating carrots or doing crunches through the whole show or something. But no. Not me. My chubby butt is too tired after a long day!

I confess: My husband is very gifted musically. I on the other hand, am terrible. Ok, maybe not terrible... but definitely not good. I wish that we were a little more balanced in this area. He loves me and it doesn't bother him any... but I think it'd be nice if we had a talent that we could share.

I confess: I'm bad at these confession things. I never know if I should be serious, or funny... and I end up creating posts and deleting them because I think their dumb or too personal. But what the hey.

I guess that is all for now. Hope you all have a fantabulous Friday!!

I'm in awe of those extreme couponers, but then I look at what they buy and know I'd have absolutely no need for a three year supply of cereal, paper towels and toilet paper--also no place to store something like that. I also can't remember to use coupons when I have them for something I will use.

I'm with Vandy...I mean why do you need a year supply of soda?! Maybe toilet paper....

I think your confessions are great!

I totally wish I could be an "extreme Couponista" but I have no time.. I get excited when I save a few dollars on diapers! hahaha

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Keep at the couponing, and pay no mind to the show. That's $85 you would have given to the grocery store for no good reason.

Have a fabulous weekend!

I see the ads for the extreme couponing show, but I haven't watched it yet. I used to clip coupons and use them all the time, but in the last few years, I've stopped. I don't know why. Maybe it's not that I stopped but that I FORGET! Oh well. 32% is a huge savings. Maybe I need to make myself remember now!

I thought your confessions were very heartfelt. No need to edit or delete.
