Coupons and Diamonds?
"Grandma, did you know that my mom is an EXTREME couponer? She has a BINDER full of coupons and had a cabinet full of stuff she calls her hoard." Airborne was the first one to out me but the Tech Monkey jumped right in with "We have 25 deodorants, 15 tubes of toothpaste and like 20 boxes of cereal in the hoard." My mother just looked at me and shook her head like I had really lost it this time. I am not sure how she can't understand how happy it makes me to cut my grocery bill in HALF or more. What she didn't know is that I couponed my way through Christmas too. $60 in Itunes cards-$36, new monitors for the boys- Black Monday Tiger Direct deal 40% off.
I decided that I wanted to be TOTALLY debt free by the time Agent Daddy hit 50. I am ahead of schedule. I am rocking this saving thing. So I was thinking I might need to reward myself for all my hard work. I mean really who deserves a bigger diamond than me? So I went over to look at engagement rings on Pricegrabber.com. WOW! they have rings from all over the net. As low as 99 cents all the way to like $30,000. I saw a Pink Sapphire and Diamond ring that was STUNNING. The prices are all pretty reasonable for what you are buying. The only problem is choosing just one.
