Life comes at you fast, I mean really fast.  There is very little time to stop and smell the roses sometimes. Things that you really want to do get put on the back burner while things that aren’t as important to your soul are suddenly front in center.  It is difficult to find balance and often you feel like you have failed at life.  The one golden rule in…

    Fall is here…

    Fall is here. It is one of my favorite time of year. Things get back to a normal routine and normal patterns return. The leaves start to turn colors and it shows that there can be beauty in death. Anyway…. Fall has come back around and for some reason, this year it feels much more amazing. Why might you ask? Well, let’s write a list. (I just love lists!) First off, it’s not ungodly hot and I do not feel like I am going to melt.

    Week of 8/14 Deals

    Welcome! This is the deals for this week (until next Wednesday!) I am going to break down this list into three different sections. A Target section, a HyVee section, and a Walmart Price Matcher section. These are the three main stores I go to save money. I go to these three stores for different reasons. Target, for example, I can use a store coupon, a manufacturer coupon, and a cartwheel offer on top of sale prices per one item! (Have no clue what I am talking about? Check out here). I’ll explain the others as I go along! Well, let’s start. Target As this progresses, I won’t be as wordy…

    A Little Sampling of Savings

    In my last blog post here, I told you that I was going to add a ‘deal sheet’ every Wednesday. Well, I thought that I would share a deal with you guys.  Again, I will state that this deal is valid in central Nebraska but I do not know where else! (But the coupon is good anywhere internet coupons are accepted.) HyVee is having Yoplait single serve cups on sale for 39¢ each! Check it out for yourself here.  (You can price match it at Walmart)  Then you can print a coupon here for a dollar off five or if you have last week’s (8/7 SmartSource) flyer, you can cut it from there.…

    Five Signs You Are A Creative Person

    You dream in vivid color. You often are caught staring out the window. You struggle with knowing who you are. If you nodded your head to any of these statements above, there is a chance you might be creative. But how do you really know if you are creative? Is there a test? Do you have to take a class?
