So the past week or so I’ve been trying to regroup. It’s like I want to change the name of this blog but then I have to totally move it. I’ve been trying to think of a good “sign-off” name for when I comment on people’s blogs because I’m not just “couponing” i’m doing other things as well..couponing is just one thing I’m working on. I had changed it from Beth Anne Saves to Catholic Couponer and now I’ve changed it to Beth Anne Saves for Vacation haha…so I’m not really sure where I’m going there.
But lately I have become OBSESSED with Universal and WDW. Maybe I should stop reading so many different blogs. But ever since I found the blog www.couponingtodisney.com I have been thinking about my saving techniques. Now I’m currently looking for a job but once I start working I really need to start savings money to different places. One place is def. to a vacation or a disney fund of some sort. We’re planning on purchasing AP in the near future (hopefully by Thanksgiving but if not def. by the Spring) but then I also need to start putting a lot of my savings towards my debt and then also to just an Emergency Fund of some sort. So I’m just really regrouping what I’ll be doing with all this money I’ve been “saving” by couponing. Now since I started couponing in June I’ve saved an average of 52% of all my purchases.
I had a 2nd interview yesterday for a job i’m in the run for. I’m not sure how it went I think it went okay they said they’d call me sometime after Labor Day. They are interviewing 2 more people this week and next so we’ll see. If not I need to get moving on something else. But we’ll see where that goes. I haven’t heard from any of the other jobs I applied for except all these scams from applying to jobs on Craigslist ugh..craigslist used to be such a GREAT place to find things and now it’s all these scammers and spam! It’s really not good!
So for now I’ll continue to post here but we’ll see I might move this site somewhere or hey maybe someday I’ll get my own domain blog (which I don’t even think is that expensive at all) but we’ll see.
So my latest savings:
Yesterday I went to Target they had Mac and Cheese for 89 cents! Although Publix has them BOGO next week 🙁 oh well. But I had $15 in GC I had gotten from buying razors back in July but lately Target hadn’t had any good sales so I had been holding onto them. So I finally chased them in so I saved $15 at target by using Coupons and sales so my total was $20. So after my $15 in GC I only had to spend about $6! This was great for me!
We really haven’t needed a whole lot I’ve just been purchasing things that are $1 or less…I’ve done some publix trips but it wasn’t anything fantastic. But I keep to 1 rule I will save at least 50% off my total which I do everytime!!
Okay that is all for now I’ll update on my job search soon!
