Nissan Z

Got my old car out and took it for a spin with the kids. They loved it. Thanks Carey for giving it to me years ago. Corbyn got a truck today for his prize for potty training. It's good thing they are different frequencies so that we can drive them together.

Couponing 12/20/2011

I just used my Albertsons doublers on 4 boxes of Ritz and 13 packs of butter. I paid $15.53 after coupons. Matching up the sale with the coupons and using the doublers saved $44.20 off the total. Thanks Carey for finding great deals.

Ultimate Date Night Giveaway- part 2

I want to win this.

Folding printed coupons

Here is a video on folding printed coupons from internet coupon sites.


And here is a picture guide on folding printed coupons from internet coupon sites.

After printing coupons to the limit. 

Cut the coupons out. I use this 12 inch paper cutter. It is so much faster and easier than scissors. Especially when cutting multiple sheets. 

 Stack all of the same coupons and place face down, with the top away from you. 

Fold the left side 1/3ish of the way in, at a slight angle so that the expiration date is above the top of the coupon. 

Fold the right side straight over making sure not to cover the expiration date. 
On the front you can see the expiration date and the product image. 

Turn the page over and you can see the value of the coupon. 

Bowling

Today Carey and I took the family bowling. At the Nampa Bowl. They do Thursday Dollar Days. Bowling $1, Shoe rental $1, Fries $1, Hot dog $1, and Soda $1. We bowled a game and had lunch. This was our kids' first time bowling. They loved it and it was so much fun. 

Our main motivating factor for going was to sign off Carsyn's bowling requirements for Cub Scouts. We were able to sign off the arrow point and the belt loop. After we were finished one of the guys that works there talked with Carsyn about bowling and helped him sign off some of his requirements for his Bowling pin. Carsyn even got to go into the back and see how the lanes work.  

Here is an action shot of Cole, our 2 year old. (He picked the pink 8lb ball.)
His score 80. He got second place. 

I would include that I got first place, but I've been told that I am not a gracious winner so I'll just leave that out. 

Life Transition

In the summer of 2016 I interviewed for a store manager position in north Idaho. The feedback I was given was that "my answers were...
