It's not that I haven' wanted to blog but I have kind of undertaken a new hobby that has become a new obsession, it's couponing! A friend of mine has been doing it for awhile and I used to think I couldn't be bothered but then I decided to get my feet wet and try out a few deals and as of today. I have a stockpile, FINALLY. I still scrapbook and in fact I have 21 pages I need to get uploaded but I haven't taken the time to do it. I am addicted to several sites. One of my favorites is Hip2save .
Collin from Hip2Save is just incredible about getting the best deals out to us and all the freebies you can think of. I have gotten a free 8x10 from Walgreens, to free rental codes for Redbox movies, to Crest White Strips as well as many others.

Here are some of the deals I have been able to get this week
