While Visions of Dingos Danced in Their Heads

If you have a dog I'm sure you're well aware of dingos. Little gray dog has already put in his order with santa (his grammy in maine, shh don't tell he still believes) for a bag or two.

Here's a shot of the tree this year. The theme is blue and silver. Little gray dog decided he (as always) needed to be the center of attention (even if he was asleep). Patrick the cat also decided to take part in the photo shoot. Don't mind the lack of tree skirt, the dog drinks the tree water and I decided putting presents under the tree wasn't a great idea, unless we wanted dog drool all over them.

Long Time No Post

Where have I been...Well I've recently discovered coupon shopping and I have to admit that I'm hooked. Hooked is probably an understatement. A good friend of mine sent me a video clip about a woman in Massachusetts who buys thousands of dollars of groceries for only pennies. After watching I did a little research and discovered that there are tons of bloggers out there explaining step by step how to save money. I got so engrossed in my coupon shopping that I literally haven't done anything else for about a month. It's like crack, in credit card form (but luckily you're never spending much). For the month of November I spent about $93.53 (minus rebates and rewards that I have left to spend next month) and bought everything in the photos below (over $900.00 worth of product). Now I have a ton of stuff to give away for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers (let's just say that everyone and their brother is getting a razor set this Christmas).

On a crafty note I did finish my bella mittens and my knitty cabled hat and will post those photos later today or tomorrow. Sorry for the long absence. I frequently get obsessed with things (be it crafts, or coupon shopping) and lose track of time.
