I'm new at couponing so this is my journal about how I'm trying to save money in this economy.

Ok, watching "The Happening" and this was the best scene in the movie imo (like.. the only good scene) and it totally reminded me of couponing... and what it would be like if Mark Walhberg and Zooey D. were couponers like us.
Mark Wahlberg: "Look if we're gonna die I want you to know something. I went to the pharmacy awhile ago and there was a really good looking pharmacist behind the counter. Really good Looking. And I went up and asked where the cough syrup was. I didn't even have a cough. And I almost bought it. And I'm talking about a completely superfluous bottle of cough syrup. Psch, that's like 6 bucks." Zooey D: "Are you joking?" Mark: *nod* Zooey: "Thank you."
Well, it's that time. It's the start of a new year and that slogan "New Year, New You!" keeps getting repeated everywhere a person can turn. On the tv, on the internet, in your mailbox (thanks fitness magazine!) and pretty much everywhere a person can go.
My resolution? To put aside half of my paychecks a month towards savings. We have NO emergency fund since it got wiped out last year thanks to our mortgage company. It's a very scary feeling. So that's mine. That and lose 20-30 pounds. (Sorry! Couldn't resist!)
So with that in mind, off I go searching for some subbing jobs. I am also applying to a few jobs that popped up. Please pray for me! It would be amazing to get a band job!
