As we are trying to save money more and more I am keeping my eye out for good deals. As I was on one of my coupon blogs I saw a great deal on toilet paper from amazon( sorry I cant link up but look up couponing to Disney). As I started to go to Amazon to snag the deal I stopped and thought about it. I have SO much toilet paper, never thought I would say that on a blog, I stocked up during the last sale. I literally had to have help leaving Walgreens with my CASES of tp! So, technically do I need the toilet paper? No. Is it smart to stock up at a good price though? I guess? I actually think this would be spending money I didn't need to spend and decided to skip the deal. If you coupon how much do you stock up? On things that expire I don't stock up too much, we don't tend to go through it in time, but on things that don't expire I am torn on how much to have.
I had to laugh at myself on Wednesday when I was trying to save money. Mark texted me when he got to work and he was bummed, he forgot his lunch and his headphones. I felt bad, that is a long day without lunch and I didn't want to break our streak by having him go out to eat. So, I packed up Eliza and drive him his lunch and headphones. As I got in the car I saw I needed gas so I went and filled up, $55.00, and was on my way. As I was driving I just had to laugh, Mark works 48 miles away, ONE WAY!! How could this possibly be saving us money?? I went through about a quarter tank of gas on the way there and back which means about $15 in gas to take him his lunch, he could have gone out to eat 3 times for that amount! I definitely learned a lesson but it was nice for Eliza to see him and to get a quick hug during the day!
