Simplify & Organize


I have my 2 theme words for the year! 

I know, most have one, but I couldn't decide.   I will use these 2 themes in my couponing.  My binder will be full and happy before I go out to the store.  I will have my coupons cut out and in the binder by Wednesday of that week.  I am changing my schedule around so it gets done.  It will take a few weeks to get this down but I am determined to do it.  My goal for January is to spend less on food.  So far so good.  I am doing  a pantry challenge and it is helping keep the food cost down.  Plus it will help make space for all the new items coming in that I get deals on.  I have a family of 8.  5 of those 8 are growing little boys who love to eat all day if I let them.  I need healthy options for them.  So, more cooking from scratch and whole wheat flour.  More veggies and more fruit.  Organizing my coupons will help me shop better which will help us eat better!

As I organize my coupons binder my shopping trips will be easier and more organized.  I am super excited about this!   I will plan out my trips better and get a map of the stores so I know what aisle each item is on.  Organize is a great word.  Don't be afraid of it as I once was.  Challenge it and conquer it!   

Do you have a theme for yourself or your family for 2012?
