it’s was basically finding out that i threw away $15! i’ve been trying so hard to be conscientious this year, and the last two months have set me back completely. this really drove home the point that i need to be more careful!

Oh ya, I feel so bad for you! In the beginning of November, I lost my whole CVS coupon holder – it had about $40…. that was tragic and made me almost quit altogether… but I’m back in now after Black Friday.

Just try to use as many $5/$30’s as possible and then you may start feeling a little better!
