Sharing small financial tips, some coin auctions, and whatever randomness escapes me.

  • Tourette’s: Scarlet’s Vocal Tics
    I previously wrote about my 13 year old daughter, in My Scarlet Always Sharing. Several years ago, she had been diagnosed with Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, Autism, Tourette’s, Depression, and ADHD. Scarlet is all about awareness, sharing her experiences and feelings, and helping others. We chatted about this multiple times, so I will start a new section for her shortly. Today, I wanted to share …
  • Coupon Mission: Update 4
    As I am moving along this journey, I am thinking I should add this info to my Financial Tips page. Or even a new page? So far I’ve had a few updates, some bloopers, and saved a bit more than usual. Nowhere near where I want to be…yet. I would recommend learning the coupon rules for each store, as well as the different kinds of …
  • Happy For Online School
    I am really glad that my girls convinced me to let them do online school so many years ago. Especially with how everything is right now. Honestly, I was already partially on board from the start. I just needed to make sure it was right for them. They are both extremely intelligent (like all moms say), but they really are brilliant. I let my oldest …
  • Scarlet’s Dark Art
    So my friend invited us to her “Dark Art” event, benefiting Glaucoma research. The idea was to paint as though you are blind, using unknown colors and items to paint with. It was this past Sunday, but we weren’t able to attend. I thought it would be nice for my daughter Scarlet to still participate from home. When I told her, she was really excited …
  • My Scarlet. Always Sharing, Helping
    Very few know this, but my youngest daughter suffers from a few disabilities. I belong to several Facebook groups relating to Autism, Tourette’s, Children with Disabilities, and so on. I like to read through the posts and think about how it relates or not. On a very slim occasion, I will comment with some of our own experiences. I say slim because I rarely post …
  • Coupon Mission: Update 3
    I feel like this should be a Bloopers edition…. It’s been over a week since my last update. I saved some money, but nothing went nearly as planned. Anxiety, stress, and memory lapses really did not help my mission. Before I left the house, I prepared myself. I already had all my notes on each ad. I also wrote a list of the items I …
  • Invisible? Anxiety Driven Rant
    Sometimes I feel completely invisible. Not heard or seen. I’m not referring to anyone or thing in particular causing it. It’s just a sad feeling in general that comes over me at times. Then I battle through all the emotions that come with it. Most times, my anxiety takes control and forces me to want to hide. While other times, I feel like I’m jumping …
  • Alexa Is Growing On Me
    A while back, I posted “Alexa. Was I Just Paranoid?”. I had explained that originally, I wasn’t on board with the Alexas, Siri, and all that. I love technology, but I just didn’t feel comfortable with it. I finally came to the realization that if I’m going to be paranoid, then I might as well get rid of all of our technology. I won’t do …
  • Today Is My Birthday!
    Happy 45th birthday to me! 45?! And still sparkly!! It really was an awesome day! It started with a birthday text from my Haley, chocolate chip cookies with Scarlet, flowers from my mom, randomly found notes and home made cards from my Scarlet and my fiance Sully. I appreciate all the experiences throughout my life so far, good and bad. I’ve made a lot of …
  • Financial Babble
    Since my last coupon post, I have contacted about 30 more companies. I didn’t receive any more coupons through the mail since Monday. I broke out of my shell for a moment. I made a post in a neighborhood app and a Facebook neighborhood group requesting any unwanted coupons. I actually received a few responses. Oh and I contacted a nearby friend of mine who …
