It's been a week since I last posted.  So busy, yet nothing really to report.  Getting ready for a trip to Hawaii for 10 days.  Just me, dd and my mom.  Should be a terrific fun girls time!  Plus Mom is treating on this trip, so not much cost to me, other than a few new summer clothes.  I'm outgrowing (in the waist area) my old clothes.  I haven't had a new swim suit in years (and the last one I bought is now too tight). I bought a cute one at Kohl's.  The top is kind of long to the waist and then I bought a black skirt type bottom.  Kinda hides the love handles :-)
I also bought some khaki shorts at Kohl's at $20 but then decided I could probably find 2 pair of shorts at Walmart for that price.  I took the Kohl's shorts back and got 2 pair for $20 bucks, plus a pair of capri type shorts for $14.  We're staying in a condo with a full kitchen, so will save money by eating in a lot.  I plan to use some of my spending money I take to either treat mom to a nice breakfast or dinner out.

I purchased some coupons on Ebay last week.  Got 20 $1 off coupons for some Crystal Light tea.  The boxes I buy are currently $2 each at Walmart, so will be quite a savings and good stock up. Dh goes thru several boxes a week.  I paid less than $3 total for the coupons and will save $17 overall then. Not bad.
I'm still not couponing as much as usual, but hopefully after a nice relaxing vacation I can get myself on track again.
