I am updating the blog again for the day and went through the coupon box to get more coupons that have expired. I love a good sale and deal but coupons is where I’ve struggled. I like the idea of spending less that coupons provide, but I hate the idea of buying stuff just because I have a coupon.

This season of clean out has really helped me to hone a strategy where there is nothing wrong with coupons if they’re something you’re going to use. THey’re also great if you’re looking to donate. The discipline comes in when being intentional to not buy more than is needed just because it’s a great price. So I have no shame in saying I didn’t use these.

End of coupon rant.

I got to see Hamilton!!

And I got this super cool t-shirt to celebrate. And then Ellie ripped a hole in it. I tried to order another online, but they were out. Soooo…. I was wearing a shirt with a hole.

Last week the shirt came back online, so I bought a new one to celebrate that I GOT TO SEE HAMILTON.

I’m trashing the old shirt.

So Welcome Week happened, and I’m behind. It’s time to catch up. This will probably take a few days, but I’ll get there.

First up is this red bull. I don’t like Red Bull. It came with a textbook, which is super strange. Anyways, I’m donating it tot the Arkansas Tech Green and Gold cupboard. Hopefully, someone else will enjoy the caffeine surge!

This is a pile of scout treasures that came home after a recent scout trip. I’m not sure what they are, so I can’t speak to that but am excited to get rid of them.

The clutter is real right now!

Mom and I went to the Orioles this past weekend. #birdland was so much fun!

As the game giveaway, we received these cards. I don’t have a need for them, so I donated them. However, I hope someone else enjoys them!

Eleanor Belle is my sweet princess. This unique stuffed toy came home from a boy scout trip. I’m not sure what it is, but I do know it doesn’t go with Ellie.

She could easily choke or hurt herself on this.

I picked it up off the floor the instant she wasn’t looking and made sure to out it in the donate pile.

I bought this beautiful blue/green North Face jacket a couple of years ago at the outlet mall in San Marcos Texas. It’s gorgeous and I wore it until I gained some weight.

I am selling it, as it’s been replaced by a Patagonia. Hopefully next winter I’ll have the opportunity to buy another jacket because the current one is too small.

Gotta keep working!

Baby steps.

All I ever wanted was a fluffy dog. A prissy, fluffy dog. Ellie is fluffy, but prissy she is not.

I bought this carrier with the idea I could take her anywhere. If you know Ellie, you know this is a pipe dream.

In trying to get stuff out of the house, I’m selling this carrier on Poshmark– my username is carriehphillips, if you’re interested.
