Ashely's Birthday Wish List

Two weeks to my birthday and I want just one thing please. A new camera. The blog is suffering because my last one died and I have no show to the show and tells that I could be providing to you.

I even have a special envelope full (well, maybe not full) of savings to help contribute to the cause.

I'm thinking about this one.

I went a couponing...

I went a couponing this evening. It was the first time that I've tried it and I don't think I did to bad for a newbie. I had heard about couponing from some ladies at church and stumbled across the blogs of some SERIOUS couponers. My number one question for these bloggers is WHERE DO YOU KEEP THE STUFF? Are you next in line to be on an episode of hoarders? But, while where they keep the stuff is their business, I did appreciate the tips.

Harris Teeter is running triple coupons through tomorrow. I followed the rules and browsed my circular and went in ready to shop. It took quite a bit longer than a regular trip, but I think it was worth it.

My lessons learned:
-you can only triple coupons up to 99 cents
-you can only triple the coupons outta the newspaper (so my smart attempt at googling for coupons based on the circulart backfired)

So, here's the breakdown on my first trip: I spent $22.51 and saved $21.30 in coupons and $11.25 in VIC savings. Pretty good I think...especially considering two items in my cart were Ben & Jerry pints! Oooo...I hear the freezer calling me....

100 Years of Carolina Basketball

On September 4, Lindsay and I were able to go to the UNC alumni game (thanks to Sara!) celebrating 100 years of Carolina basketball.

Here is the video that they played at the start of the game:

Here are the highlights:

I do love being a Tar Heel!
