I have a few random thoughts to share as we start off the weekend . . .
Kindergarten seems like a huge milestone. I’m trying to act casual about it so as not to freak out my boys, but on the inside, I’m a wreck. Intellectually, I know that everything will be fine – kids go off to school all the time. But talk about a major transition, not to mention my having to let go of my baby (sob!).
I’ve now cooked two boxes of Ronzoni Healthy Harvest and both times they’ve come out gummy. Maybe I’ve seriously overcooked them, but I don’t think so. The Smart Taste variety comes out just fine, and so do other whole wheat pastas.
Maybe the best thing about couponing is being able to easily share with others. The husband of one of my friends lost his job, and I know my friend really doesn’t want to shop the way I do, even though money is tight. I totally understand that what I do isn’t for everyone, but I’m happy to share the fruits of my labor. A couple of weeks ago, I took over three bags full of toiletries, food, and paper goods that I’d probably paid less than $10 for and yet were worth a couple of hundred retail. I love being able to do that!
