There is a huge coupon craze going on lately...I've gotten sucked up into it and so has my sister. Most of our conversations lately have been about the great deals we have gotten or just about what coupons and deals are out there.

I think with this economy we have to start spending and saving our money wisely. Now sister and I are not trying to be like those women on the TV show extreme coupons cause lets face it we do not have time for all that. My objective is to save a few bucks here and there and maybe get some free things as well.

My best deal yet was on Bic disposable razors!!! I was able to get 4 four packs of razors for FREE plus $1 overage...oooohhh yeah!! I have also gotten my hubs deodorant for about $1 a piece instead of $3.89. Just the little things in life can make me happy and getting a good deal is one of those little things :)

There are coupon classes offered around my area and I'm thinking about taking a class to learn more about couponing but I haven't decided yet.

Have any of you taking couponing class? If so how was it?

Tell me about one of your best deals with coupons I love hearing about it!

smelly gym clothes...yuck!

Lately my husband has been working out A LOT!! I mean average of 5 hours a day A LOT. His routine is usually combatives for 3 hrs either in the am or pm and then 2 other trips to the gym once for cardio and once for weight lifting. Since he goes at 3 separate times during the day that means he has 3 separate yucky smelly gym outfits per day. Hubs sweats like a pig and it stinks awfully me its awful! Well he use to put his smelly gym clothes in the regular basket not thinking anything of it and it would make my nice clothes stink badly. Well now I make him put them in a separate basket in the other room so I dont have to smell them. I wish we had a washer and dryer in our apartment cause I would make him wash them each day but nope that is not the case. So since I am sooooo busy I wash clothes once a week which wow his gym clothes are sour and disgusting after that week. Well last week hubs was complaining how his gym clothes always smelled once they were washed...NO BIG SURPRISE THERE!! Anywho I did a whole lot of research to figure out how to get the smell out of the clothes and I pretty sure I found it...its simple baking soda. Who would have thought something so simple and easy, I thought I was going to have to buy some super expensive magical stuff to get the smell out. I put a half of a box of the baking soda in the washer along with the oxyclean I love so dearly and wooohooo they dont smell as of now. They were just out of the dryer so tomorrow could be another story.

Do any of you have any household tricks you would like to share with me???

On a Firefighting job hunt

Its been awhile since my last post so I figured its time to update.

Currently McHunny and I are on a major job hunt for him. McHunny recently passed his state board to be an EMT so now he can get a job as a Firefighter/EMT! This has been his dream for a very long time now and he has had to jump through many hoops to finally get here. Last week we turned in 3 applications and this week we hope to get 3 more out. Since we are aggressively putting in applications so we hope to have a job by October. Please Pray for us that we get a firefighting job VERY soon.

I have never met someone that wants a career as a firefighter more than my husband and I am so excited that his dream is close to becoming alive of course god willing.

I'll try not to be a stranger ;)
