You may have noticed I haven't been posting much lately (and I apologize for that). The last few months I've not really been myself, and just haven't felt well. That has really affected everything around me, including my couponing. While I continued to do it and continued to make trips to the grocery store, I wasn't feeling very passionate about it (like I had been). I went to the store more when I had to than to make sure I got any great deals. The fact that this fell on top of the week long power outage, and subsequent spoiling of our frozen stockpile, really didn't help. Despite, it all I've still managed to almost get that freezer filled again.
We all have times where life just gets crazy and we can't do what we'd like to do when it comes to getting to the grocery store or spending any real time stocking up on great deals. That's where having a stockpile is such a huge blessing. Instead of wondering what you are going to have for dinner and feeling like there is nothing in the house to eat, there is always something available. It may not be your first choice, but it's there to be used.
