Last contest for a little bit.

We’re sick again in my house so I haven’t had time to post anything. It started with my husband even though I think my daughter and I were the ones that picked up the germs. My son got sick after my husband. I was up all night one night with him, then the next night my daughter and my son were up. So that was two nights with limited sleep then yes, I got sick and boy am I sick.

I have it the worst out of all of us. Woes of a mommy.

Anyways for the giveaway.

I have been reading a lot of blogs and I’m on a lot of frugal lists. My heart breaks for all of the families out there that are barely getting by. I also feel so much for those of you that are having a hard time with Christmas.

I have coupons to give, I know I have been giving a ton of coupons away lately, but one person will get my stuffed envelope of coupons.

I have been going through all of them. I have a couple for pantyhose, and some for board games.
I just have tons to give away. You have one week to enter. The contest ends on November 14th. The envelope is already full it’s just waiting for a winner.

So leave a comment with your e-mail address. If there is no e-mail address I won’t be able to contact you.
