The Weekend Begins!

[4]Sun-baked kiddos after a day at the park are cooling as they watch a short video. The bread machine is working on tonight’s pizza dough. FishPapa is on his way home from work and the weekend begins.

Tonight’s agenda? Pizza and a movie. Not sure on the film, but the food is almost the same each week [5]. Some homemade lemonade [6] is also in the works with lemons from my parents’ tree. Throw in some coupon clipping [7] and some shop-listing [8] and we’ve got the makings of a great Friday night.

FishMama say what?

Yes, I know how to live a wild and dangerous life, don’t I? I usually clip coupons during movie night. It’s a way to multi-task and still be a part of the family action. I take a few minutes to browse the on-line printables at Red Plum [9] and Coupons.com [10] as well as check out the Sunday Coupon Preview [11] to see if it’s worth buying a few papers on Sunday. And since I know that early Saturday morning may be my chance to grocery shop ALONE, I also try to load my grocery store cards with electronic coupons from Cellfire [12].

It may not be the most exciting way to spend a Friday night, but it keeps me out of trouble — and in the black.
