What a Waste & Wordless Wednesday combo.....

So this whole budget thing SUCKS donkey balls...yes I love to say donkey balls. It is crazy trying to keep on track it is not that it's hard but it is a total pain in the ass to do. I can see myself getting addicted to this coupon shit and then before you know it POW I will be sucking my thumb in the corner of the kitchen while clipping coupons and shouting at the top of my longs...Must get to store before Harvest Healthy Soups are all gone. Ahhhhhhhh. I mean how crazy is that? So far I have been doing pretty kick ass saved a bunch on groceries again this week and it is shocking when you really pay attention how many great deals their are out there. It is definitely allot of work to get all the stuff ready, but definitely worth it when you save a bundle.


So this one is going to be the hard one.  Yes this week for the sake of my budget I will be giving up going out for my decaf non fat latte...I know the "'the what's the point or the no fun drip" but I stopped drinking caffeine a few years ago because it "jacked" me up so bad and my stomach was a mess. However I still needed something that tasted like coffee bean so decaf it has been since then. This is my little treat after the gym.

$3.25 a day 7 days a week times monthly bill is 100.00 dollar my hubby also has the same habit so combined we will be saving 200.00 a month which is quite a lot for some beans and moo juice. I have decided to invest on a small espresso/latte machine and do them at home. I am currently shopping around to find one that is the best deal. If anyone out there in super mom blog land has any recommendations on a good one let me know......

Also had to include this pic of LDG and Fur Monkey Numero 1 I caught LDG trying to give pooch a manicure......they trashed the bed as you can see but it was toooo cute. I am also having a hard time keeping clothes on my little drama queen she just wants to be naked I had just finished wrestling her to get her diaper on...is this normal???

 Happy Hump Day Peeps!

I gave up caffeine two years ago. Best thing I ever did! Those lattes look yummy... sorry you have to give them up, but it sounds like it is for a good cause.

Hope you can make it through another successful week of budgeting :)

I'm beginning to think I need to get a job at Whole Foods--at least then I'd get a discount since I spend most of my non-income there anyway.

As for espresso machines, my friend LOVES her Delonghi. I think the Nespresso's are great too (and might be a little less).

Will you hurt me if I laughed like a lot while reading this? Not at you, with you, with you! I like to say donkey balls too!

My son loves to strip often, even on the school bus...yeah, he's a rebel.

Juli said...

Kids think being naked is a game with you constantly try to dress them.... and I guess in a way it kinda is ;)

I feel your pain on the whole budgets "suck donkey balls"... having to cut out your foo foo coffee should be illegal!! Good luck with the in-home capp machine. I tried it, but was afraid the steam pressure would blow-up in my face, so I eventually sold it. I'm following you now... hope you will do the same! http://glimpsesofthegoodlife.blogspot.com/

I hear you about the budgeting. I can't tell if it is the economy or us, but it seems that I am finding myself becoming more and more creative over the years (using coupons when I can) and I do not like it AT all ... I don't want to be super frivolous, but I do want to go back to when I did not have to think about everything so much ... UGG!!! Hey, thank you for taking the time to read my last blog post and follow. I have been a follower of your blog for a little while now. I look forward to reading more. Happy couponing and budgeting :) Let me know if you want to exchange buttons.
