Books & Coupons

Soo it's been a few days since my last post and I apologize. My husband is leaving to deploy again soon and we have been soaking up our time together..

Anyways, I went to the library today & our base has a very small library but I did manage to find 10 books I liked so I have a lot of reading up ahead of me. This reminded me of a 'challenge' more or less that I wanted to do.. I want to read 100 books in a year. I will compile my list tonight and post it as soon as I am done.. Anyone want to join me?

Also is anyone in a book club? I was thinking of joining one here. Thoughts and opinions?!

How many of you use coupons.. I do! I never did before we moved here, but since we live overseas we can use coupons up to 6 months after they expire. I picked up some more coupons today so now I have to go through them all and organize what I can use now, what I can use later and what to put back in the "coupon Joe" bucket where I get the coupons.

I know this post is random but I am all over the place today & Im just random! I hope you all have a great week :)


  1. Sounds like you and your hubby are having some good bonding time. :)

    I love coupons! The only problem is that they sway me to buy products I might not otherwise buy.

  2. I would love to read 100 books in a year, but I don't think I'll have time!! But I'll definitely be interested in seeing what you pick out! I'm currently reading Breaking Dawn from the Twilight series again. Stupid Eclipse movie just re-ignited that obsession. I also finished Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin recently. I'd love to read Eat Pray Love & a few others. Buzz Sugar had a great list of books that are coming out as movies this year & I was interested in a lot of them.

  3. I'm trying to read 100 this year. Who knows if I'll make it or not though. lol.

    My book club starts reading the next book this week. Hope you join in!

  4. I used to use coupons but realized I was actually spending more cause I was getting all that stuff that was one sale but I didn't really need! Enjoy the time with the hubs.
    I'm a new follower btw.

  5. I love to read! I have a goal of 52 books a year, it's all I can really manage w/2 kids and sometimes not even that many. But I try! I keep a list on my blog of the books I read, which is fun.

    I belong to 2 book clubs, and love it. One of the things I like about it is that it gets me to read books I would never pick up on my own. And sometimes, they're great!

    I don't use many coupons, but I know lots of people save SO much on groceries doing it. It seems like a lot of work and I don't have much extra time.
