I've Jumped on That Coupon Train!!!

Granted while I'm not an extreme couponer yet, the matching up of deals is fun!!!  What a rush it was to go into the store and and see the price of my cart going up, and then handing the coupons and watch it go down!!  The other day I was in Kroger and saved $53!!!!!

Reading some of the other blogs and seeing what they use to organize their coupons I'm starting to put me together a binder.   When I was at Wal-Mart the other day I found the perfect binder on the Clearance shelf!  It has the detachable, expandable part on the front where I can label tabs and put the different coupons in for the store I'm going to.  Today I got my sheets to put my coupons in.  I'm so excited!  Now I can't wait for the Sunday newspaper to get the coupons out of and go to the store the next week!

It's coming....

...the Kindle Campaign from BzzAgent!!!!  I so want into this campaign.  I've drooled over a Kindle since they came out, but alas haven't had the ability to get one.  I'm so hoping I'm able to get into this campaign so I can test out one of these nifty little devices!  What would I use my Kindle for if I got one?

1. READING!  Of course!  :)
2. I'd get the Bible on it to take to church.  I've seen a few people with other Kindles and E-Readers at church and I thought to myself how neat is that.  I can quickly find the scripture I was looking for and have more time to pay attention to what the preacher was saying then to have to flip through the pages looking.
3. With 4 of my 3 kids still at home it would be an easy and convenient way to find books to help with their homework.  That and to let them read their favorite books on.
4. I do have 1 child away at college I was reading up on how you can download text books.  I would so test that out and see how easy that is for him...sounds like a great Christmas gift to me!!!(But he can't have mine!  I'd talk my husband into getting him his own!)

Those are just 4 reasons I though about in the last 5 minutes to want one of the Kindles!  Please BzzAgent Jono let me in!

Review for Cars 2 the Video Game!

What a fun game!

I'm a BzzAgent and was chosen to have a party and bzz about this game. We had a great time! We didn't have many people come over this time and I was so upset that my camera was dead. I had no batteries in the house to replace them much for all the rechargeable ones around the house. I think the kids eat them!

Anyway let me tell you about this game and how much fun we had playing it. We got it for the Xbox 360 and when it first got here Caiden was so excited! I wouldn't let him play it until he did all his chores. Isn't it funny how when the kids want to play or do something it doesn't take long for them to do their chores? Granted he's only 7 and has a few chores he usually drags when he does them, or tries to get out of doing them. After his chores we went in and played this fun game. We spent a good 2 hours on it the first day...well I did anyway, I think the kids were on it longer. I know, I know that was a bit much for them to be on a video game, but hey it's the summer!

For our party we invited a few of Caiden's friends over, I was happy and sad at the same time. I was happy that only 3 of the boys showed up because they were hyper! But sad we didn't have more we could share the fun with. I think we're going to have another party after school starts, but that's neither here nor there. As for this party and this game the guest loved it! We only have 2 controllers so they had to take turns, which they did nicely, and they couldn't wait for it to be their turn. They loved playing with the different characters and would choose a different one just to hear what they would each say. My favorite of course is Mater. I think Caiden's is Lightning. All in all the kids had so much fun with this game. I'm so glad they had something new to play!
