Hmm, Thinking About Reorganizing... Again.

Currently the only coupons I am actively clipping are the ones I print out. Since those, generally, expire a month after you print them, I'm thinking: Why not just organize the entire binder by expiration date on top of the sections?

I'm in need of a new binder anyway. The two inch isn't enough any longer. I could also use some new coupon holders, maybe even different sizes! (I only use three right now: Business card, baseball card, and full page size.)

I no longer clip the Sunday paper inserts since I hand-write every coupon in a notebook--I remember them so much better that way!--and just put the inserts up as a whole and clip them as I need them. Typing them out just doesn't do it for me but if I write down what the coupon is for, how much, then the expiration date, I can manage to remember them even if there are several hundred!

Plus, I can just take the notebook in and do a scouting mission to figure out what all to get beforehand. It really helps when going through sales ads too, since I don't have to flip through a heavy binder to make sure I have a specific coupon. (They are marked by color and stars for expiration date and category, respectively.) That helps my husband out too, because it's just better if he doesn't touch my binder. ;)

Maybe when I actually get a new binder I'll do it. Until then, I so don't want to go through everything after just doing so earlier this month!

Virgin Mobile: Get Extra Minutes For Free!

We use Virgin Mobile. After a lot of hassle with Straight Talk and Virgin actually being cheaper with better phones, we moved over as soon as the phones we wanted went on sale. (My husband got his for $100 and I got mine for $65 around Christmastime.)

Since my husband's phone was registered first, I added the Kickback plan to his so when I got my phone (a few weeks later when it was over 50% off) I could just use his referral code and get us both bonus minutes!

We only pay $35 per month per phone for better service than Straight Talk ever had for $45 per phone per month. The only problem I keep having is that the top-off feature doesn't work that well with our GreenDot card and usually has to be manually added every month. It's about five extra minutes on the computer every month to fix if it's really being bad, but at least the people you talk to speak English!

If you want some extra minutes, use the code provided when you sign up for a new account. You can read everything about the Kickback program below, then sign up for it for yourself once you decide to stop paying outrageous prices for your cell phone bill!

Just use the code: 7tnGvHd7
Kickbacks -- The Easy Way to Earn Free Airtime!

You know how great Virgin Mobile's service is. Why not share it with your friends and family? After all, it's nice to help others, but it's even nicer to get paid for it.

Then tell your friends about Virgin Mobile and watch the bonuses roll in!

Once your friend adds money to their Virgin Mobile account to pay for their plan within 45 days, both of you will receive 60 minutes.

Your account must be current when Virgin Mobile attempts to deposit the referral bonus into your account. If it's not, no bonus (sorry). Virgin Mobile may terminate the promotion at any time without prior notice.

What are Kickbacks? Kickbacks are bonus airtime minutes you'll earn for referring friends or family members to Virgin Mobile. You get 60 minutes of bonus airtime for each person you refer and each person you refer will also get 60 minutes of bonus airtime.

How many can I receive? You can refer up to 100 friends per year, which means you could earn as many as 6000 bonus minutes each year.

How can I view Kickback activity? Log into My Virgin Mobile and click on the Kickbacks icon. That will take you to your very own MY Kickbacks page. You can see the Kickbacks you've earned and which of your friends still need to Top-Up before you receive your airtime bonus.

I have some Kickbacks bonus airtime left in my account, but I can't make calls. What gives? To keep your service working, you need to add at least $20 to your account every 90 days, even if you have money in your account. So even if you've gotten some Kickbacks (or other bonuses), you still need to add at least $20 to your account every 90 days.

PitaPata Cat tickers
Please stop the ticker at 1 year, 7 months, 4 weeks, and 1 day.

He was fine when we left to go to the store yesterday evening. When my husband found him later that night, he was lying on his side with his eyes open and he was already gone. There was nothing wrong with him that anyone knew about, he was still a kitten, but it appears he had some sort of hidden condition that no one ever caught until it was too late.

We have the worst luck with cats that adore our children and vise-versa. The last one was another indoor cat that bolted out the door and was struck by a car. Before that, we had a special needs kitty that died during a seizure. My grandmother's sixteen-year-old cat passed away this summer due to infection and he was like a brother to me since I grew up with him.

Though we still have one cat, she is a stray snowshoe that we found while looking for our boy when he disappeared earlier this year. She has a neurological condition and I'm concerned that she may not make it out of kittenhood. If she does, I still don't expect her to live a long life, but hopefully not a painful one.

Manual Additions

Since I was using my phone throughout the holidays, I was updating my Tumblr account instead of my Blogger account. So, I just manually added all those where they belong. I'm sure there is an easier way, but I didn't bother looking for it!

Been Busy!

Sorry for the lack of posts. The holidays came up fast and we all ended up getting pretty sick. Our oldest daughter was running a fever on Christmas Eve of 102.6 and I never thought it would go down. Would have been horrible to have to rush her to the ER when she should have been waiting in bed for Santa. :(

Our little boy was running a high fever the same night and then our other daughter was the very next night. Of course, hubby had it beforehand without much of a fever and I still feel horrible. I never ran a fever myself, but as soon as it was over I caught a head cold. Sigh. The wonders of being out and about around the holidays--everyone has something and I manage to catch it!

Been busy working on rearranging my coupons so it's a lot easier for everyone besides me to figure out. Sure, I had a system but it certainly didn't make any sense to my husband! So, now we've got a color-coded system with two colors per coupon and every single coupon we have handwritten in a notebook. I'll post some photos of the binder and everything in a little bit. (Here, here, & here.)

Took me the past several days to get everything going well, but I managed to run out of printer ink today! We just got a new cartridge on the 28th of December and it's all gone already. If it weren't for the fact that we simply cannot afford to go out and buy a new printer, I wouldn't be using this inkjet. The black ink only cost $30 and didn't even last two weeks.

Free Third Trimester Gift from Enfamil

Print out your certificate and grab one of these the next visit to your OBGYN. (If you're in the third trimester, you'll be there a lot!) I wouldn't be surprised if your doctor just gave you one without the certificate, because mine tends to do awesome things like that.

Wish they had these cute things the past three pregnancies!

Schick Hydro Silk Sample

I'm only supposed to get five coupons for this, so grab them while you can.

Please let me know if I need to update the link! I would assume after one is taken that another link would need to be posted for the next.
