Hello! Happy Memorial Day to all of you in the US, I hope it was a good one for you!! :)
I love this time of year when the flowers are blooming and making everything all pretty and happy again. A picture from my garden.
We also enjoyed some delicious grilling this past week. These Asian-Style Baby Back Ribs were delicious!! Yum, yum!
Has anyone been watching the show Extreme Couponing? I only got to watch it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it just happened to be marathon day for it. I must have watched 6 or 7 episodes before I couldn’t take it anymore. Listen they may be getting some good deals but they are not making up menu plans with what they buy on the show that is for sure (unless of course you count croutons and a sports drink dinner worthy?). Seriously, one lady bought 100 bags of croutons and others had thousands of tubes of toothpaste in their stockpile. Um why? Just because somethings free doesn’t mean you have to buy it. So many processed foods too. I just didn’t really get it (hey I’m all for saving a buck, just not to those extremes I guess) and don’t even get me started on taking up bedroom space for overstock. Yikes! I did like though that there were a couple of shows where some of the participants did extreme couponing simply for the sake of giving it all away to those in need. That was awesome to see!
For those wanting more information on couponing (including Canadian coupon sites!) please check the resources I’ve pulled together for you here.
