Getting Behind!

Well, my house is a disaster, and my coupons are piling up! It seems like this past weekend almost went by in a whirlwind. I have had something going on every night this week! Just got home from Bible Study about 15 minutes ago!

So, let's find some positives!!

First, I was able to send the ENTIRE payment on the medical bill!

Second, my daughter won a contest at school from the Beef Council, so we got a $10.00 gift certificate for any beef at the grocery store!! YEAH!!

Third, I was able to take my family and my brother and his wife out to eat on Monday night for his birthday. Paid nothing about of pocket between gift cards and coupons!!

My daughter just traded a bunch of paperback books for free. So, she started reading again for her McDonald's happy meals and her Book It pizzas!! Free food! YEAH!!

At my job, there was a bunch of books on a table with a free sign, I found about 3 books my daughter has been wanting to read!

One of the woman I trade coupons with just send me several free yougart coupons!! I am so thrilled!!! YEAH!!!

I got accepted into a new BZZZ Agent Campaign. So that should come in the next week!

So, I am keeping it frugal. I am thinking positive. And I have been thinking about how I can still pay off as much debt off the credit cards as possible. I have a leather dress and some old ren gear I am thinking about selling. I have some jewerly that I can sell for scrap gold.....humm....I wonder what else I can do. I am pet sitting for 2 different people this weekend. Fun and some extra cash there.

Stay frugal!

Hi Angie! What's a BZZZ agent? Glad to hear you are working through your debt and staying positive!

Bzzz Agent is a program where companies send you their product to try and talk about. You get coupons to hand out. Then you write reports to tell about your experiences with the people you talk to about the products.

If you post me an email at I will send you an invite to join.

How do you earn the Happy Meals?

Frugalmommie said...

Most schools participate in the McDonald's Happy Meals Program ( I think up to 3rrd or 4th grade). There is a coupon that the parent or teacher fills out once the child has read 10 books. Once it is filled out, you take it to McDonald's and you get a free chicken nuggets happy meal. Since we don't eat out much. We really enjoy having the kids earn a McDonald's award and a Pizza Hut Book It award once a month. So, the kids know, at least 2 meals will be eaten out.
