Right now, we are living in the house that I have lived in for the past year with 4 of my college friends. It has been so much fun living with these girls and the house is awesome for a very old, college house. Fact is, though, I am ready to get out. I have one of the biggest rooms, but I feel like Jake and I do not have enough space. I also do not have much to work with right now when it comes to my need for decorating and organizing. We are moving to a small, one bedroom apartment this month and I could not be more excited. We are so ready to have a place all of our own. Until then, though, I will have to stick to vacuuming and scrubbing the kitchen twice a day to help with my housewife syndrome.
I have also been couponing. You are probably imaging those ladies on extreme couponing with huge binders and stockpiles of laundry detergent and macaroni and cheese. I cannot promise that won't be me eventually, but right now I only have one small expanding file of them. The other day I decided to put my coupons to good use. I went to Walgreens and bought $70 worth of toilet paper and cleaning supplies. This may seem like a lot of money, but I now have 3 months worth of toilet paper and a large stockpile of cleaning supplies, soaps, and trashbags. Also, I saved almost $30! I was proud of myself.
What does $70 of toilet paper and cleaning supplies look like you ask?
Exciting right?? Well you may not thinks so, but I sure do!
There will be plenty more posts reflecting my current condition. I will be posting about DIY projects, decorating our new apartment, cooking adventures, and much more! I am currently working on painting all of our furniture. As many blogs as I have read on this, you think I would be a pro, but I am so nervous. All of my supplies are purchased and I am ready to go so I will be sure to post the before and after pictures. Wish me luck!
Until next time,
M (since J obviously does not have much say in this post)
