Using Upromise

We have really been trying to find new ways to save money this year, and earn money. As most of you know, I am an avid coupon user. I get coupons from the paper, print them from online, and even tie coupons to my Kroger card. I have also had a Upromise account from before either of the kids were born, and it is attached to my Kroger and CVS card. I had it tied to a friends account, and when I purchased certain items, it would make a contribution to her kids college funds. I have since added my kids and I am still using it. Little by little, it helps to save for their college. I want to be able to pay for at least half of the kids college without having to take out any loans or use credit cards.

If you do not already have a Upromise account, or do not want to set one up for your family, please sign up to help us save. There is no committment, you do not have to buy anything special, but little by little when you do purchase items that qualify, a small deposit will be made.

I have a link you can click on to sign up and tie your shoppers card to(Kroger, CVS . . . ).

Double Bedtime Trouble

My kids go to bed at 8:00. Just about every night. It's now 10:32 and this what I am dealing with. Somehow I went from two kids sleeping in their own beds, to two kids not sleeping in my bed.
