So - first of all, the moved went well. Got everything over with the exception of a few odds and ends that, honestly, I don't need. I'm starting to feel a little ... scattered. I need routine, especially in the mornings. So far I'm feeling out of sorts. I know it'll get better, but... it's how I feel right now.
Everything else is coming along nicely though, so we've just gotta keep truckin'. Last night we didn't get shit done because we went to the Wild game - I bought Steve tickets for Christmas to last nights game... little did I know we'd be freshly moved.
Anyhow - the point of this post?
In March of 2009 I posted a TFT (Thoughts for Thursday) about buying generic - read it here - but actually read it because there are things listed there that will aide in your reading of this blog.
Basically I was posting trying to make a list of things that are okay and still decent quality/taste to buy generic - to save some money. Now more than ever do I need to apply this to my life. I have some new readers since then and I'm curious what YOU buy generic. What is okay to go cheap on and what is not okay to go cheap on...
Also, any tips for a beginner on coupons? I don't need to go bat shit crazy on clipping them but I'd like to think about starting to use them more and try and save a few bucks.
So - 2 things
1. Advise for a beginner in the art of coupon clipping and using them to my advantage.
2. List the things that you DO buy generic and DO NOT buy generic
