I have a confession to make. I am currently in a strong love affair with watching people who dare to "Love out loud". I am deeply and devotedly saturated in my love-fest. And I do not have any plans to leave this affair - ever. Yesterday, I spotted an adoring... Continue reading

Since January, my family has been on a mission to change our lifestyles...its been on the downlow because I haven't been entirely sure how it would go. What I have discovered has literally changed our lives from the inside. We have been eating "clean"...which means nothing more than we are... Continue reading

So I think I want another tattoo! Shhh...don't tell my hubby! If he knew, he would have me at the nearest ink shop as fast as we could get there. He loves tattoos and wishes I would get a sleeve...not happening {at least not yet!} I only have 2 so... Continue reading

We were deep in the middle of a financially difficult season, for our family. The whole year had been particularly taxing on our lives. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. Spiritually. It was tough to lift up my head and face the day, every day. Further complicating it, was harshness of our NY... Continue reading

Ninja's came to my house last night!! Pacifier ninja's that is. Our son has been a pacifier addict since he was born. He's almost four. Like any addiction it starts out innocent enough, something to help you get through the night, get through a rough day. Over time you start... Continue reading

(written while living in New York) It's mid-summer here in New York. Lately the days have been full of sunshine, deep blue skies, cool breezes and everything is bursting with emrald shades of color. Realizing how fleeting this weather is in our state, we often sit outside on our porch... Continue reading

Dear Dustin, There is this certain gleam that starts in your eyes and slowly spreads across your face. It captivates me when I get to watch this overtake you. It's like I get to witness something magical taking place. It's this private conversation that I get the smallest glimpse of... Continue reading

Dear Stephen, Our little trolley swayed, bobbed and lurched as it slid along the tracks and up the steep hill. It was nearly the end of our first date. Tired, you leaned against the outside railing and I leaned against the wall in front of you. And I watched you.... Continue reading

I stood in the NYC airport terminal, waiting impatiently to board an airplane that was headed toward a weekend away with two of my girlfriends in a town near Chicago. My bag felt very heavy slung over my shoulder and I shifted my weight from side to side to relieve... Continue reading

I'm getting older. Yes. Totally true. So are you. (no denial, we keep it real here) Many of my friends, hate the years that keep winding around them. They stare horrified into mirrors that reflect sagging bit of skin. There is a hyperfocus on what seems to be the inevitable... Continue reading

I've been taking my sweet time on this girl. Life gets in the way..as we all know! I wonder how long this is actually going to take me? If I can get some solid time, where I can work, and if during that time I'm feeling creative, I could probably... Continue reading

lIt's cold, dreary, and oh so very soggy outside today. Our state has nearly declared the drought of 10 centuries...so you won't find me complaining when our house nearly floats away in all this rainfall. In the heart of the afternoon, I toss on my big clunky raincoat, with its... Continue reading

I'm a huge fan of saving money where ever I can. One way that I have learned how to do that is through coupons as many of our readers already know. And there are loads of FREE Coupons...in fact, I compiled a large list a while back of places where... Continue reading

Meet Jess...she's... Quiet. {which makes every talkative person like me... squirm!} Insanely creative. Has been known to turn a waste paper basket into a stunning chandelier...(I swear, you'd never know what it was originally, unless she told you. She's so cool!) Loves to plan a party...down to the tiniest details!... Continue reading

Ms. Stacie, great question. Whats probably happening for those folks is that they get coupons in their area for the gatorade and vitamin water. Not every area has the same coupons. Even when there are coupon previews up on the websites, there isnt really a guarantee that all the coupons will be in your coupon inserts. However, there are ways to get the coupons that others are getting..by using places like Coupons by Dede The only time that it may really pay off to use a site like that...is when you know that there are coupons in an insert that will get you freebies and deeeeeeeep discounts or you need just a set of coupons in particular...theyll have them in bulk. Otherwise, its better to just grab up a stack of newspapers on a Sunday for yourself. Also, keep your eyes peeled for store hang-tags and peelies. They are often found when you least expect them to be there. Im gonna assume that youre in a ShopRite area..based on the price you quoted for the $.88 - which is their most common discount price for a product..lol Some ShopRites are a boon for coupons in the aisles...so keep looking. Ive seen Gatorade coupons from time to time. Oh and I did a quick search on the coupon databases and right now it doesnt look like there are any coupons out there. But dont let that keep you from anything. Try writing the companies and telling them how much you love their product and ask them for coupons if they offer any. It can bring you great success at times! Hope that helps! And happy Couponing Ms. Stacie, Jennifer
