Do It Already...

As many of you already know I have a gigantic small tendency to dream BIG, and watch those dreams go nowhere.  That may be a tad bit on the dramatic side.  I blame hormones for my exaggeration.  In fact I blame everything on hormones. Hey don't judge, I'm a woman, it works for me.  If you are reading this and you happen to be a woman, you should totally try it sometime if you haven't already. Where was I?  Oh yes, I have added to my list of goals to accomplish in the near future...  Are you ready for this?    To be......  An   Extreme Couponer....  Thats right, has anyone watched that show?  Keep watching for one day you will see me on there, having $1,000.00 worth of groceries in my cart and only having to spend $1.00 on them.  In case you don't see the pattern here, I tend to set too high of goals for myself.  Let's take the me becoming a millionaire making bows for example.  I have come to the bitter conclusion that it's definitely more than likely not going to happen.  I have however sold 4 bows.  What has happened in the bow business is that people come into the shop, examine my bows to try to figure out how to make the bows themselves. This results in me jumping over the counter, bodyslamming them, and holding them there until the authorities arrive.  This makes for a very awkward situation for everyone, but drastic times call for drastic measures, and I am sorry , but I can't have copycats.  Did I copy other peoples bows?  Maybe so...But the buck stops with me!  So along with the bow business, me learning how to use Photoshop, learning how to use my photo scanner my dad gave me, learning how to use my vinyl making machine, I am going to learn couponing.  And just like my Photoshop book, my scanner and vinyl making machine are all stacked neatly in my "hobby" armoire, I clip coupons and keep them in my purse.  I have just been waiting for the "perfect" time to learn how to coupon.
But the waiting is over, it's now or never, do or die!  And today I shall make my shopping trip and plan around the grocery store sale adds, just like they do on Extreme Couponing.  Now just so I don't set myself up for disappointment , I don't expect people to be gathered around me at the checkout today clapping for me because of how much I just saved with coupons.  Also in case you were wondering , there will be no camera crews there, unless I have my husband videotaping of course, which I might.   But I will be using coupons and hopefully saving money, and this will be the start of my Extreme Couponing  journey. I will keep  you posted, I know you are dying to know how it turns out.

                                                   This will could be me someday
