The End of the Month

Dustin and I have been together for almost 4 years and as i think back on all the important milestones in our relationship-they all seem to revolve around the end of the month.
Our first date (and current anniversary)- July 30th
My move out to Oklahoma- June 30th
When Dustin asked me to marry him- December 31st
Our wedding- June 30th

I don't know if this is just something random or perhaps something that has higher meaning. Who knows i bet I'll find out I'm pregnant (NOT FOR A LOOOOOOOONG TIME) and have our children around the end of the month as well.
Its kind of a neat pattern and helps remembering important dates easier!

But with that said-
T-Minus 1 year and counting until Dustin and I get married!

Extreme Couponing

I have found a new hobby that is consuming me at the present moment. COUPONS! I know some of you have seen "Extreme Couponing" on TLC and while i think its impossible to recreate those deals in Stillwater, I'm going to try my best to get some deals here! Being out on your own and paying your bills you learn money is a little tight, so i hope this will help Dustin and I saved money both for the daily life and for our wedding :)
So after much planning Dustin and I went down to the city to Target and heres what we found

For everything pictured here I spent $30.73 and saved $37.04 with coupons and in store promotions which is a 54% Savings! Yay for us.

Now we've got to tackle grocery shopping with our coupons so we'll see how it goes.
