You can google “gofobo rsvp code” and then the movie name and see if you can find one. They also are on twitter and give you the codes there.

5 Coupon Inserts this week!

December 31, 2009
This weekend there will be 5 coupon inserts in the Sunday paper! Look for 3 Smart Source and 2 Red Plum! If you want to take a look at what coupons will be offered you can take a look HERE.
I have been super slacking this December. I usually get behind during the Holiday’s and don’t get my coupons cut out. Honestly, it is nice to take a little bit of a break every now and then. But, I also need to get it back under control because we are getting low on my “staples” and I refuse to pay full price for anything.
Part of the reason that I love “couponing” is that I have such a stock of things that if I want to take a month off and only buy milk, bread and perishables, I can without it breaking my budget. I have a chance to use up many of the things in my “stockplie”, thin it out a little, take a bit of an inventory and start again fresh.
Most of my coupons are expiring today. I am going to use this weekend to go through my binder and get rid of everything expired, trash all my inserts that are expired and that I haven’t cut out yet, and really start over. This is really a great weekend to do it too because we are getting SO MANY coupons this week!
Where are you at with your organization? Did you take a break in December?

Obedient Children!

December 30, 2009

The other day we left to see a movie and left the kids babysitting during the day. We gave them specific instructions to NOT let ANYONE in the house for any reason, including their aunt Katie (my husband was trying to be funny!) and to not answer the phone unless it was us.

Well, my Mom stopped by to hang out with the grandkids…

This is the note they held up to the window as she was banging on the door for them to let her in!

You can stop by her blog HERE to read her account. She has a very cool picture of police dogs learning obedience and likened it unto her grandchildren.

This is what my Mom had to say, ( still stop over to her blog it is a cool picture!)

“Another example of self discipline and obedience. The other day the parents of all my grandchildren decided to see a matinee. Leaving the oldest three in charge of their younger siblings with strict instructions they headed to the movies. I was invited to go to the movies with them but at the last moment I decided it would be better to stay with the grandchildren. When I arrived, the doors were locked. I knocked. I knocked again. I heard them saying, “It’s Grandma!”

There was a loud rapping on the window and when I turned to look I saw a note they were holding to the glass. It read, “Sorry, Grandma, the Parents told us not to open the door for Anyone. Love, the kids”

A call to the Parents and I was granted entrance. Sure, I was annoyed standing outside in the cold, but having obedient grandchildren is a wonderful thing. They were trusted with an important job and they showed they had the self discipline to do the job right. The little ones were all for opening the door, the older ones who had been entrusted and given instructions did not give in to the “temptation” even though they knew me best.”
