The end is near?

"Yay! Only a few weeks longer till your free of nursing" I've been getting this comment a lot lately. Why? Because my twins will soon be 1. Appearently at 1 I am to cut them off, throw in the towel and tell them "No more num nums!". Why do people feel this way? The WHO recommends breastfeeding until 2 or longer. I am a huge believer and letting the child decide when they are ready. For my oldest that was at 13mos. I was devastated and cried my eyes out, but in the end he decided he was ready to be done. The twins are still nursing 6-7 times a day. I do not see weaning any time soon, and I am okay with that!

This makes it worth it!

COUPONS!!!

I am not ashamed to admit that I am a coupon addict or couponista as I like to refer to myself as. I weighed my coupon binder the other day and it weigh's 8lbs. Im very proud of that. It has become my 4th child. I just finished The Krazy Coupon Lady's Pick Another Checkout Lane. It was great. I highly recommend it for anyone who coupons. I hit up some great sales at the beginning of the month and was able to stock up on ground beef for $1.88/lb, and hamburger helper for $.66.



I also had my first money maker!!! I love that Walmart does that. Guess how much this stuff cost? $4.65! Between rollbacks, coupons and moneymakers I saved over 50%. I'm working towards cutting our grocery budget back since I am no longer working so every little bit helps. What are some of your money saving tips?
