#Couponing #CouponCommunity #WhoLeftTheGateOpen #WhyGod! #HelpMe


Ok… I just need to get this off my chest.. #RealQuick… this is gonna probably be my easiest post.. because I have started so many others.. but didn’t post then yet because.. I just wanna think it out..


Ok.. let me focus… because I didn’t know how amazing it would make me feel.. to just #save some money.. I feel like I have missed out on so many years of #Couponing!!!!  I try not to think of money that I have blown…lol.. paying retail for things… huh.. it makes my heart hurt.

Oh… but what a blessing was bestowed upon me… as i was paying close attention to one of my #Amazing classmates from HIGH SCHOOL… CeCe….she never has to pay full price for anything.. she is a #GURU AT #COUPONING!!! #BLESSHERLORD!!!  SHE HELPED ME!!! I’m so grateful!  Our family of 5… is always in need.. and i …….#StronglyDislike..  for a better choice of words…PAYING FULL PRICE!!! I’ve always been good at finding a good sale.. but what i thought was good is NOTHING!!!  DO YOU HEAR ME… NOTHING COMPARED TO THE SAVINGS THAT #Hardcore #Couponers save. NOTHING!!!!!!!

Now…it becomes and obsession.. you want to learn the lingo… then you wanna learn how to find the sales… then you wanna know when the freakin manufacturers coupons come out… then you order your first batch of coupons, you’re watching the mailbox, then they arrive… and whoooooaaaaaaa ……then you really wanna buy EVERYTHING!!! LOL… AND YES.. IT’S THAT INTENSE!!!!!! (I literally just had to laugh)

The Lord #Himself…told me… that #GLUTTONY is not just for food Quiana…. (I’m not cray cray.. but I have my own personal relationship with God…) (judge me if you want. #iDon’tCare lol) And it was to say…don’t just buy everything… only buy the items that you need in your household, because… I’m sucked in… #JustKeepinItReal  So…I have to know what I would like to have “on hand” ….I write it down.. and I can only buy whats on that list.  (this is how I control myself..) (so I think)

The things i love: (aka… acceptable items for my initial hauls )                                                                                                 (**hauls are your bulk purchase…HA!,  told ya’ll i’m vested, learning the lingo and everything)

Gain Flings (so the kids don’t waste detergent)/Bounce dryer sheets/ Glad trash bags/Olay body wash/Gillette deodorant/ secret deodorant/ crest and Colgate toothpaste/ Dove Soap/ Lysol Kitchen, and Reg Spray/ Pinesol (not the gold one)/ Bounty Paper Towel/ Charmin Toilet Paper/Windex

To me these are the basics that i need everyday… so my focus is on these items.. BUT I WANNA GET OTHER STUFF!!!



But I’m going to stick to my guns… and get what I need, and not become and impulsive buyer… Its hard though… the Rush that you get when you have like.. $100 worth of stuff on the counter.. and they say like..$15 IS SOOO AMAZING!!!! I just needed to get that out..

Its great to be saving money…but it must be controlled. #JustSayin   My fiancé ALREADY asked me if I was about to open a Dollar Store with all this stuff…..  (cracking up!!!)

Anyway……For anyone who wants to start Couponing….there are apps for any and everything…my current favorites are Favado, i can just type in what i need and it will tell me everyplace near me that has it, and how to get the max discount, Cartwheel- an app for Target, and of course my spots…… Kmart, Meijer, Kroger, Walmart, Dollar General, Walgreens, and CVS…whew!!!!   Now.. my girl CeCe is about to start doing classes!!! She is AMAZING!!!! AND WORTH EVER DOLLAR I WILL PAY FOR A CLASS!!!…… SHE IS AWESOME!!! AND SHE TAUGHT ME SOO MUCH 🙂  #THANKS CECE!!!!

Well.. i think I got it all out!!! This is #Que #SigningOff

Who knows what I will be on a #QuestFor Next….LOL!!!!!!

Love ya!!!!

The statement….”If I could clone myself” is ever so real in my life!!!! *sigh*

Sometimes I wish that God gave us daily organizers, to just tell me what to do to fit it ALL IN!!!!!!! Since we as humans don’t have this built in gift, it is up to us. It is up to us to maximize the time in our days. We all have the same 24 hours. No one person has more or less. Isn’t that crazy! We can’t all have the same time…..sometimes I think….I needed to do this, and that. Or how does such and such get all this done in a day. This can’t be right.

It is.

1 day = 24 hours
24 hours = 1440 minutes
1440 minutes = 86,400

The more mature I get (ha ha a nice way to say older lol ) the more I am very particular about how I spend my time.  I don’t like to waste time.  I don’t like people who waste time.  When I go for a service, I would prefer it be prompt and timely, I don’t want to spend an extended amount of time anywhere unless i scheduled for it.  I love to spend the majority of my time with my Family, God, and being productive!  If it’s not going to make me productive, or do something to “benefit” me and my future, it is an ABSOLUTE…..WASTE…. OF….TIME..!!!!

I want to be the “living” example for my children.  I don’t want to talk about something that I wouldn’t do for myself.  If i expect them to be healthy….I should be the example of what healthy is.  I want them to exercise  and be physically active so I exercise. I want them to be organized so I’m organized. I want to be successful at my job, so i organize my day.  Same for them, their current job is SCHOOL, so i try to make them as organized as possible!!! Ohhhh but how many years did it take for me to get it……ughhhhhhh……but hey… I’ve got it now!

THE 7 P’s are:








It’s important to plan.  Make a plan and EXECUTE it! Don’t talk about it…Be About It!

if I can do it… EVERYONE can.  I have 3 munchkins, that ages are 14 (high school), 12 (7th grade), an 6 (1st grade), being a Mom is NOT EASY! But it is one of the greatest gifts from God, and as Moms it is our job to help mold our munchkins and help them be SUCCESSFUL at anything they put their mind to do!!!!!

Sooooo the moral of this story… is to GET WHAT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH OUT OF YOUR DAYS….The only one that can push and Motivate you ……IS YOU!!  Maximize how you use your time, because once you waste it…..YOU CAN NOT GET IT BACK!!!!
