We got Beef!!! (and tons of housework!)

We just bought half a beef (about 600 pounds) and our freezer once again is full and we have a nice reserve to draw from. This meat is very good quality and spoils me against the stuff in the grocery store. Dennis hasn't seen the size of the ribeye's yet! Dang, they are huge! I am hoping Mike can tell me what percentage of fat the hamburger is. I'm guessing 93 or 95 %. It is pretty lean.
Amy and Mike brought the meat yesterday, and so after we got it into the freezer and I fed the family, (more on this later), we made a Costco run, since we both had our rebate checks to use up. I stocked up mainly on more fresh veggies and fruits. They have nice produce there.
I'm getting more and more picky about coupons I clip, but I'm still clipping. I wish I kept better records of how they are helping out. I'm betting that I'm about even on what I paid for my binder, if not very close.
I cleaned like a madwoman yesterday. I mopped all my floors,and vacuumed the furniture, did about 3 loads of laundry, cleaned on the kitchen, and today I STILL have dishes and laundry to do. It's like catch up every weekend. When I am debt free I will have a maid come help me with this stuff. Seriously, two hours a week, it's all decided. Don't tell Dennis, though. I haven't broke the news about the maid yet. I still have a couple of years before this conversation needs to take place.
Dennis now has uniforms for work so I'm thinking the amount of laundry we have on a weekly basis is going to be WAY less, but until I get this all put away... I'm not going to notice at all, lol. It's so cool to have someone helping with laundry!
I've got much to do to be ready for the upcoming week so I'll say so long for now.
