My Addiction

I have an addiction. Isn't that the first step, admitting that you have a problem? Although I don't think it's a "real" problem. How is saving money a problem if you're only buying items that you use?

The picture attached is a glimpse of what's in my linen closet. Everything was bought with a coupon and while on sale! Even the Bath &Body works soaps. I was so excited when I went to Target today and discovered that the Dove for Men products that were already on sale and on my list were actually marked with clearance tags! They even had bonus travel sizes attached to them. Oh how I giggled. That's when I really knew, I'm a money saving addict! 

Now don't get me confused with those extreme couponers! I'm not dumpster diving, buying extra papers, having people save coupons for me or any of those other crazy things that people do. I do have fun with it though! A group of us meet once a week to look over the sale papers and swap the coupons for items we know we won't use. Our host picks a theme and we bring the food & drink that matches. This week the theme is Asian. Yum! Next week we're going to start doing cooking lesson together. It's a really nice reprieve each week from the hustle and bustle of our daily life. 

So yes, I'm addicted! But you know what, my hubby has plenty of his favorite bath items and so do I. Our clothes will be fresh, fresh, fresh. My son can have yogurt as often as he likes. Yep, I think I'll hold on to this addiction.
