Good Bye June, Hello July!

Hello July,

IMG_0882

Lets Set Goals for the month and come up with ways to accomplish them. June was good to me now I’m expecting July to be even better for me.

I set goals each month and track them. Last month I set goals but did not accomplish all of them or come no way near close to meeting the goals that I set. Which is okay I have to reevaluate them for July and ensure that I start from the first day of the month until to the last with working on my goals.

I have a good decided to focus more on the blog this month I have gotten off track, but I decided to get back on track. So with that in mind, a new month brings new begins and a fresh start.

July Blog Goal: 28 days of Blogging I have to post a blog post for the next 28 days. I want my followers to stay tuned to my blog. I want them to be able to say that they are learning from my blog. I feel for you to learn you have to be informed. So to be reported I have to create a post that is helpful to all my followers.

To successfully met my goal of 28 days of Blogging I need to do the following:

1. Time Management: Time Management is everything I have followers that enjoy reading my post, and I want to keep it that way. To manage my time, I need to stop procrastinating and get my blog post posted immediately from the time I finish the job. I definitely have to stop waiting around to see if I can post a better post and use the one that I originally came up with.

2. More Consistent: I’m not consistent at all when it comes to my blog. I should not expect for it to grow if I post here and there. I can’t wait to get more than what I put out so if I’m inconsistent I cant expect my followers to be consistent. I have to consider this a lesson and work even harder at being consistent with posting to my followers.

3. Get rid of anything thing that’s a hindrance: TV has become a hindrance for me. I find myself watching TV and trying to post on my blog at the same time. I have to get back to doing them separately so I can focus. Looking at the TV while trying to post is not a good idea for because it will take forever to write a sentence in between the commercials.

I will be reflecting back on this post throughout the month to hold myself accountable for meeting my goal. I have motivated myself to write this post, and I will be following it to ensure a successful month of blogging.

Vacation is over and I’m Back

IMG_0714

I know it’s been a while since I posted a blog post, I have been swamped. Between working my full-time job, just finishing a problematic semester in school and running around with my daughter I hadn’t been doing much couponing. Let alone looking at any sales papers or even picking up coupons. I’m delighted to report that my job is going well. I finished my semester out on top with A’s. My daughter has officially gone on vacation for the summer with her Grandparents. So it’s just me for now. I was also able to get away and relax and rejuvenate for seven days in Jamaica. When I tell you that vacation was everything that the doctored ordered it was much needed and well deserved.IMG_0712.PNG

But I’m happy to say that I’m back and in full effect ready to help you save money. Trust me I can tell the difference between just spending money and saving with coupons. I have been shopping on numerous occasions and haven’t used a coupon but trust me it won’t happen again. I have made a comparison, and it wasn’t pretty at all. I don’t beat myself up for it; I just have taken it as a lesson learned and will move forward and strive to do better with my spending habits.

As for my blog, I will start back posting the weekly deal matchup at CVS and Walgreens. I will also soon begin to start to add in other stores that you can efficiently coupon at. Just remember as I will add in different stores you will need to become familiar with the coupon policies at the different stores. Not all stores have the same couponing policy. Always know the couponing policy before going into a store because you don’t want to waste your time and you also want to save yourself some frustrations in the end.

Also, I will be updating the Online Deals daily or should I say as I find deals. I have seen several good buys this week, and I will post them today. If there is a deal that just stands out to me, then I will post it as the Deal of the Day.N If you purchased the last deal of the day the Air Fryer, it was a steal in my eyes. The Air Fryer has definitely come in handy at my house since I opened the box I haven’t cut the stove on since then. So if you haven’t invested in one yet I highly suggest you get an Air Fryer.

Deal of the Day

Here is a Deal that you can’t refuse.

BLACK+DECKER Purify 2-Liter Air Fryer, Black/Stainless Steel, HF110SBD

Is it really worth the hype? Yes, it is worth all the hype and more.

1. It’s a healthier alternative to traditional fried foods. If you are looking to give up fried foods then the air fryer is the best choice for you. The air fryer will give you that fried taste minus all the grease.

2. The air fryer is easy to clean up after being used. You can remove the parts of the air fryer and even place them in the dishwasher if you prefer to wash them that way.

3. Multiple usages: fry, grill, roast or bake
Air Fry frozen foods such as French fries, onion rings or chicken nuggets
Air Grill vegetables or seafood
Air Roast any meats or vegetables
Air Bake muffins, cupcakes, brownies or bread

You have heard about all the hype, now what’s the downside? I’m glad you asked I’ll be happy to fill you in.

1. It takes longer to cook with an air fryer you can normally cook French fries in 10 minutes in a deep fryer. But not with the air fryer it would take 20 minutes for them to cook.

2. If you have a large family then you will have to cook the food in different batches cause it is so small you would not be able to cook for a large family all at once.

The air fryer is definitely worth the hype to buy. It is a kitchen appliance that I highly suggest everyone invest in. I love fried foods but I also had to give them up so when I purchased the air fryer I have been able to indulge in a healthier version of fried foods. Of course, it has been trial and error with the air fryer but over time I have become very satisfied with the end results of using the air fryer.
