Doing The Math on Coupons

I came across this and it is one of the best articles, in regards to couponing, that I have read in quite some time. It puts all the numbers into perspective. A must read, to say the least...

Bipolar Disorder Awareness Month

This has nothing to do with being frugal, or couponing or sweepstakes...but I must make my public service February, though I am lagging a bit since the month is almost over, is Bipolar Disorder Awareness Month. February has been designated as Bipolar Disorder Awareness Month since 2009. I, myself, am a "carrier" of Bipolar Disorder and understand all too well the stigma that surrounds the disorder. If everyone would educate themselves this could be a more socially understood illness. There are too many people that have Bipolar Disorder, who are ashamed of it, or afraid to be open about it. "What about you, you ask?". I am not ashamed of it, it is a pain, but we ALL have SOMETHING to deal with that we really don't want to. I have never been ashamed of anything about myself. The way I look at it, God made me the way He did for a reason. He is an all knowing God and He will not give us any more than we can handle. It is very frustrating at times, but everything happens for a reason and I have come to accept this. I hope this may help someone who has Bipolar Disorder to see that they are beautiful, no matter what. God is perfect and He created each and every one of us and He does not make mistakes. I will insert a couple links below for educational purposes, for anyone that doesn't really understand Bipolar Disorder and wants to. God Bless!

My boys are getting big enough to help out their old decrepit parents (lol), but its not fun for them either. This Log Carrier is just a pretty neat idea! And pretty cheap, too!
