Save Money!!

Hey, I don't know if any of you are coupon clippers or bargain shoppers--- I have tried to be every now and then but after today I am taking this quest more seriously. One of my co-workers showed me this FREE website that she and some friends set up,

The website is set up for the sole purpose of helping people save money on their grocery bill by taking advantage of sales and coupons. Every week, somebody goes over a list of the weekly store ads and lists them on this website, along with whatever coupons have come out recently for the items on sale. That way, you can combine store sales with coupons. My co-worker once got $100 worth of groceries for $22.00 and $105.00 worth of Christmas toys for $7.00! I want to try! Anyway, you just go register on the website. To get the weekly deals and stuff you go to forums, then find the forum called "screaming deals by state" and then click your state. She showed me a ton of stuff the website has--printable coupons if you don't take the newspaper, promotions codes for online shopping, printable grocery lists that match the specials that week, etc. Anyway, who doesn't want to save some money, right?

Our first pet

I'm afraid Peter and I bought out first pet today. Actually, we bought three of them-little $.28 goldfsh at Wal-mart. Peter is keeping them at his house and so who knows exactly how long they will last. But he already seems quite attached to them-one in particular that I have no doubt will be in our home if it is still alive by then. We bought them because we are going to have goldfish bowls at our reception. Peter was so funny in the store, picking them out just like a little kid. I think he inspected every fish before choosing the three he wanted. And he kept worrying about whether the biggest one was going to eat all the food before the other two got some. Personally, I am glad he is keeping them at his house because I think fish are nasty.
Oh, and I made him come see Twilight with me tonight now that it is in the dollar theater. I just can't justify spending 6-7 dollars on a movie. Not worth it. But back to Twilight; it was good but I really think I liked the book better. I guess I just get into books more than movies. But I did think Emmett was pretty cute in the movie. Peter kept asking me if it was almost over(again, like a kid), but afterwards he admitted to enjoying it more than he thought he would. And tomorrow we are going to the Draper Temple open house! I'm excited. :)

My apologies

Sorry I haven't posted for a while. It is because I am either too busy or when I actually have a few minutes (like right now) I have nothing to say. But at least the rest of you are still posting so that is nice for me. My time is mostly spent house-hunting, flower-shopping, and experimenting with different ideas for table centerpieces. My current dilemma is what kind of guest book I want. Something traditional that would require no work on my part other than picking it up at the store? Or something unique and creative that would maybe turn out cute if I put a lot of work into it? I think having a wedding scrapbook would be fun, but I don't know if I could really get it done.
