Day off!!!!

So for the past few months I have worked 10 hour days basically 7 days a week and that definitely is NOT working smarter instead of harder. So I decided to take a day off my daughter went to school so I had a good 6 hours to myself. I had plans on cleaning up (spring cleaning) shopping and starting a nice dinner for the kids.

The plans well 50% got done the other half I found myself doing nothing absolutely nothing just sitting on my couch with a snack and the T.V. on. A few times I said to myself get up go do something, but my laziness prevailed lol. I watched shows like Maury and Judge Judy shows I’d never normally watch but they had my attention yesterday.

Soon it was 3:30 and my daughter came home, so mommy mode turned back on. I made her a snack and started dinner.

To be honest I don’t know how I feel about taking the day off. I feel like it was something needed and had to be done to save my sanity. I should have gotten a lot of things done but of course my body had other plans. Maybe I needed to just do almost nothing for a whole day.

Next time hopefully I’ll have more than one day off and I can feel like a productive person, what’s better though taking a day off during the week or the weekend? Hmmmm….

Couponing woes

Good ol’ coupons. Where would I be with out them? Well for one I would probably be doing something more constructive with my time (probably not).

I actually love the game of couponing the thing that bothers me is I never save what I think I should be lol.

Every Sunday morning I get up go outside to see my paper was not delivered once again but there is one at the house next door, no one has lived there for almost a year and all the sudden they get papers?

It’s like a part time job really. Thank goodness for the papers coupon line up every Tuesday or Is fail miserably at this job.

I really do refuse to pay for anything full price. It’s hard doing it but it is so worth it. I enjoy getting discounts and saving and then most places I shop I have a rewards card with and I get a reward here and there depending on how much I spend in a month, week or day.

I really don’t like those couponing extremely shows, it’s not realistic and it is annoying to know they got to break the rules for coupons and get a buttload if stuff for free basically and I can’t do the same.

I have actually slacked the last few months and my pantry and linen closet are looking very empty. I have been working 60 hour weeks as of late and I just don’t have the energy to look clip and shop. I do still use the savings app provided from my grocery store so I am still saving just not as much as I’d like.

What can I do? How can I get myself to balance my hobby and work? Time will only tell. If your reading this and you have some ideas throw them at me PLEASE!
