About Me

I'm a Utah mom, just trying to make ends meet. Several years ago, I was introduced to a new way of couponing. I've been addicted ever since. I have a hard time paying full price for anything anymore.

I love couponing so much, I decided to become a teacher for Grocery Smarts.

I teach free classes and show you how to get everything you need at the grocery store and still leave $$$ in your pocket. I'll also teach you the best ways to get and organize your coupons. The best part of the class is when I show you how to match your current coupons up with the current local sales - getting the most bang for your buck!

Procrastination is finally driving me crazy!!!

I can't stand it anymore! This is the story of my life. I love to find the bargains, yet I hate to put it away. I can't tell you how many times that I've "re-stocked" the entry way (front door) to my house. The stairs to our basement are right behind the entry way, so it's easier to drop the groceries there than take them all the way down the stairs. The groceries pile up and pile up before my husband and I get so tired of tripping over things we take them downstairs.

So consider this PART 1 in my effort to get organized. For those of you that know me well (you know who you are), you will know that organization is one of my biggest short comings. Please don't cringe as you look at the following pictures. Take it for what it's worth and we can all learn from this.

These are the wonderful shelves in my cold storage room that my husband built for us last year. Notice these are almost empty. I was standing in the middle of the long narrow room, looking towards the end of the room.Turning the opposite direction (looking towards the door), you will see the shelves have some food and non food items (no organization at all).

This is me standing at the door (it looks okay, but not great).

Another shot (to the right) at the doorway. Can you see where this is going?

Okay - those of you that are neat freaks can start screaming in horror now - it only gets worse from here.

Yes, we are no longer in the cold storage, we have moved into the un-finished basement. Oh, but wait, there is one more.....AAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!! I don't even know what I have in food storage since it's all sitting in bags on the floor. Don't let this happen to you.

I have one child in school and the second will be going to pre-school next week. I have a challenge ahead of me. I'm hoping to use some of that time to organize this mess. Anyone want to help????? Wait for Part 2 - hopefully we will both be impressed! Keep watching....

Wow! I'm impressed at how much food you have! My food storage consists of what's in our kitchen pantry. Time for a bigger house if I continue like I am! I'm happy to help to see what you have - I love organizing!

I love to organize! Give me time without the kids and let me have at it. You're only fee will be to help me get started with my food storage, and may be a personal shopping experience to help me understand more about this whole thing.
