Happy New Year!!!!

Happy New Year! I am so thankful that 2011 is done and over with. I am praying that 2012 the year of the Dragon is going to be much better. It's so far starting to be a great year. Business is good, spending time with my family, and of course getting my life back in order so that when things get crazy again next week I am prepared to take on the world.

Today I decided to get groceries this morning, cleaned up in my room (business area) and just organized all my coupons with a new quick system. Yeah I do not have as many as I use to but there are enough that I need to have them organized so that I can start using them again. The system is a simple one and didn't cost a lot just about a dollar. I purchased 100 envelopes  3 5/8" x 6.5" at the dollar store and printed off labels in word with the following categories


Air Fresheners/Candles                                             
Baking Needs
Beverages                                                                               
Breads
Breakfast                                                                 
Cereal
Candy/Chocolate                                                      
Canned Goods
Cleaners/Bathroom                                                          
Coffee/Tea
Condiments                                                                                 
Dairy
Dish Washing                                                                              
Fish
Feminine Needs                                                               
Food Misc.
Free
Freezer Items                                                                 
Grains/Sides
Hair Care                                                                 
Household Misc.
Laundry                                                                                        
Meat
Medicine/First Aid                                                        
Oral Hygiene
Pasta                                                                                      
Produce
Refrigerated                                                      
Shaving/Deodorants
Skin Care/Make Up
Snacks/Cookies
Soap
Soups

It's was easy and took only about 5 minutes to get all the labels on the fronts of the envelopes and stuff them with the correct coupons. I am ready for my next shopping trip.

Even had the chance to speak with my Bermudian cousins and auntie. I could not believe I almost spoke to everyone except my cousin Mikey and my 2 uncles. Everyone looked great and I was so delighted I was able to speak with them over Skype. If you don't have skype you need to download it quickly.

Better get going as I am on the end of my second glass of champagne and still need to finish cleaning this area before going to bed.
