Gearing up for No Spend Month, School, and all that!

August 16th, 2011 at 02:38 pm

The boys are back home and once again, the house is filled with laughing and crying babies and thumping feet. I missed those babies, but it's amazing just how good you sleep and how much you get done every day when they aren't around!!

So, we start the flurry or orientations and back to school stuff this Sunday. Little man starts a new preschool. I think it will be good for him, but I know he's going to be sad when he realizes his friends from the last school won't be there.

I talked hubby into a no spend month in September has well. I'm giving us $450 for everything that isn't a regular, recurring bill. I think that will free up some much needed cash for savings.

Today, I also scored a few coupon deals.
4 2-packs of Dial soap for 18 cents each. (regular $2.89)
3 St. Ives body wash for 49 cents each.

God bless coupons. Hubby also discovered the drawer of cheap and free toothbrushes and seemed pretty happy that I had been stockpiling necessities when they cost next to nothing. At first, he rolled his eyes thinking it was just silly. Until he needs a toothbrush!

The day is looking up: our lost bag from the airline was just delivered to the house. Phew!
