Updates and Extreme Couponing

Hello all!
It has been a very busy month of May. Once the weather gets warm, I am nowhere to be found. Me and my family are big outdoorsy people, so we are always fishing, camping or boating. I dont do much crafting or computer time in the summer months... so bear with me until the winter :)
Another thing hubby and I have been doing is couponing. We started about 3 wks ago and have saved over a 1000.00 already! We spent maybe 200-300 at the most. And for beginners, I dont think thats bad! We started with zero coupons, so I am proud of what we have accomplished so far.
I have been posting videos to my you-tube channel and have lots more to add as well on my savings and how I do it. You can find my channel by clicking the "Twlight" blinkie in the top right of my blog.
As some of you may know, my hubby has been out of work since Jan. 2010. He has had 6 surgeries and been on workers comp. Well, today, he is released to go back to work, however, there is no work, so he will be laid off... bad thing is, since he hasnt work 20 wks prior to being laid off, he is not eligible to collect unemployment.... ut oh... I dont know what we are going to do... we will have to live on my small disability check for now... not that comp paid him much... it was less than a 1/4 of his salary... but now, without that coming in, we are in a mess! So say prayers we can do something with unemployment, or he finds work!!! I love having him home with me, but we need money to survive... I have found that you cant live on love alone... LOL.

I hope everyone is safe and enjoying the beautiful weather!

Hugs and blessings!

Here is my first video I did on couponing:
