Soo..I know I told y’all about my recipe box and going thru it to replace unwanted recipes. Well..I’ve found our family A-Z recipe book, which is 2 index binders with rings! 😜 And I know it’s going to be a lot of work, which I love trying new crafty things so I always have something going on lol, buut I was thinking about making our boys each their own recipe book from our family that they can always add to. I was also thinking about customizing each of them according to which recipes they like, but also the main ones with some tips and conversions. Our oldest loves to cook meals and our youngest loves to bake. And of course neither one enjoys eating what the other does, but isn’t that typical?
Always remember a family that cooks together, stays together!
And to clear my table some, in my search of lost (misplaced) items, I found their old bakugan binder with attached card sheets. Soo, until I’m bored again the binder will replace my accordion coupon book. Now all I have to do is paint it 🎨
Quick mini story about my first time couponing:
Literally this past week before Christmas I decided to do last min. shopping, which I will NEVER do again! Anyways I was soo proud of myself for finding coupons for the things I wanted to get the boys, which would of saved $15 or so. With my Ibotta rebate savings almost $20. Anyways, lines were extremely long, traffic was horrible to get there, walking thru the people traffic was even worse. I don’t like crowds of ignorant people who bump into you and act like they never did.. Soo finally it’s cash out time, I give her my coupons and she scans one and says it doesn’t have numbers, it doesn’t work. But because I was already extremely irratated, I took back my coupons (which I threw out because she said they didn’t work), paid for everything I had coupons for in full price, and just yesterday asked a Facebook couponing page about my coupons. Which of course I find out they are good, all she had to do is enter the numbers ABOVE the bar code.. Anyways, lesson learned..be persistent in using your coupons, and put the items back for the coupon that “doesn’t” work. Oo and not to forget, never shopping the week before Christmas!
Hope you enjoyed my couponing story, hopefully you’ll learn from my bad expierence. Lol, till next time..have fun!
