Couponing Cont'd

COUPONING...So I have been inspired to coupon. There really is alot of money to save and my motto Why pay more when you can pay less!!! I have been organizing my coupon notebook and have already started using my coupons. Typically at the store the other bill would have been $30.00 and I paid $16.00...that is a savings!!! There is alot I can do with this make more money...enrich our lives...etc...Do you coupon? Any advice is welcome, since I'm a newby. What is everyones opinion on organic versus non organic? I have some pics to post of my coupon notebook! I'm so proud:) Saving one penny at a time:)

Rainy Day

I just love rainy days. They give you that excuse to lounge around in your PJ's...without the guilt. One of my favorite sounds in the world ...melodies of raindrops. In the Hassouneh house we find all sorts of activities to occupy our slow moving rainy clocks:) Varieties of sleep, food, TV, coloring, cleaning, and laundry makes the clock tic. I especially love wet days for reading and trying to craft. I so want to be Betty Crocker...the romance of homemaker is alluring. There really is no other job as fulfilling as family, even on days you may feel loopy. And I admit I have those days, but then I remember the cooperate world. I will gladly take an apron over heels anytime. Well... off to snuggle with the lo vies on this fab drizzly day.

What do you do on rainy days?

I really had know idea how addicting blogging can be...I'm really lovin it...even more than facebook. Truth be told...I'm tired of facebook...don't tell anyone. :)

Today "M" and I went Christmas shopping...we had so much fun. I'm so excited about Christmas morning...growing up mom made sure the toys were displayed perfectly...I still remember the year I got my smurf! I still have it!!! Love the holidays. There is an air of kindness, peace, and family. I have missed that alot the last several years with "J" being sick. Now however GAME ON..."J" is doing wonderful...thank you Lord! So this house is ready for some holiday spirit!!! My parents are coming "down" we have lots of plans...involving cookies, Ginger Bread houses, popcorn, hot chocolate...mmm...give me a little time and I find more to add:)

Speaking of holiday spirit...Ramadan and Christmas there about more than gifts though...I know this and have many items weighing on my heart... you find yourself always asking God for "something?" I do ...let me be honest...and I know this is promise to my Lord stop.
...abundance...I really can see how easy it is to want to give your children everything...however this isn't good for them, the family, and finances. So I "stopped" with Christmas shopping for the girls. They are going to have more than enough. There are more items, but they are I lift all my weaknesses up to God and pray for changing and forgiveness!

I pray that you all have a wonderful Christmas, plenty of gratitude, and just the right amount of abundance.
