I've become a coupon fanatic! :)

The past few months I started to really get into couponing. I love saving that extra bit wherever I go. I actually always carry certain ones with me all the time, which meant I needed a place for them. I found this awesome coupon holder at Bed Bath and Beyond and had to order it. (I went into the store to order it there cause they'll let you use your 20% off coupon).
I checked the site, they actually have a different style now, but they are still really cute, here is the link. Bed Bath and Beyond Coupon/Receipt Organizer

Here is a picture of mine:

I have made up extra dividers so that I can have more categories. It's easier to find when there split up more. I have a section for Groceries (with beverages, condiments, snacks, and freezer section, just to make things easier to find), there is a restuarant section for fast food or dine in, first aid, beauty products, etc. I also have a section for target, cause I have so many coupons just for target. Also, one for Kiley, for diapers, babies r us coupons, and anything else that relates to her. I've had mine for almost a year and it is still holding up really well.

I LOVE this thing. It is so nice to have my coupons all in one spot, and the holder is small enough to carry everywhere with me. :)

Just on a side note, this last week I went to Target and got these items below for... $2.25!!!! :)

Home Management Binder

One thing I love is organization! BUT, I have not been organized AT ALL lately. I read some blogs a few months back about making a Home Management Binder. A Home Management Binder keeps schedules, to do lists, budgets, recipes, menus, contacts, etc all in one easy-to-find spot. I have been busy working on mine this last week, cause I am determined to get things on track. Picture of the one I put together below :)

I found AMAZING printables at these sites: TipsFromAMomOf3 This is where I started, got tons of ideas for my binder, and she has a ton of links for free printables.
TheProjectGirl She has some great printables for Projects and a gift log checklist, plus some DIY crafts

I'm still working on getting mine where I want it, but I have a good start so far. :)
I have to find the other ones that I used, but these were the two I had a blast with.

(I will post more pics later, once I get the binder in better shape)

Ok, Here We Go...

So, I started this blog AWHILE ago, and now, I intend to continue posting. We shall see how that goes. :)

I plan on making posts of just everything that interest's me. Recipes, organizational things, money saving tips, etc, etc, and of course, my sweet baby girl, Kiley!

So, as stated above, here we go!
