Couponing

My subscription should have started Sunday, but for whatever reason it didn't, but the lady who I ordered them through is going to help me out by following up with them. She said they would probably deliver them later this week. Yeah!! (Glad you told me to call, Trish. I thought my order was still 'processing' or something.)
I just clicked on "coupon list" for the first time on the Pinching Your Pennies (PYP) website. (or if I clicked on it before, I didn't understand the beauty of what they had going on there.) It lists all the coupons and you can sort them all different ways and the ones that are expiring are blinking!!!
I think with all the coupons clipped out and sitting in makeshift envelopes I was wondering how you can keep track of it all.
Also, now that I actually have coupons, the whole PYP site looks different to me now. HOW COOL!! I am so glad that there is such a website and that there is all kinds of people on it at all different levels. It's Networking with a capital N and you can be as anonymous or as visible as you want.
I've been very intimidated by this whole couponing and PYP in the past, but recently I've given myself permission to just learn and get better over time.
Just reminded myself of my daughter Kaylee who at 3 years old was VERY frustrated with coloring. She noticed that people tried to stay "in the lines" and was doing her best, but if she messed up, she would cry and throw a mini tantrum and stop coloring. I had to make her repeat after me: "I am three years old,... and it is OK,... to color outside of the lines." We had to do this many times. Eventually she began to laugh about it and not take herself so seriously when it came to coloring. We both like to be very good at the things we choose to do, right away.
Sometimes I need to remember. "I am thirty seven years old (soon) and it is okay to color outside of the lines."
