Well, today’s “Follow Me Monday” video is once again me sitting on the couch, answering questions, being lazy… BUT this time I have a special guest! πŸ˜‰

As you may remember, I had you all email in questions that you were hoping I could answer. I received a total of 25 pages worth of questions, so just like the previous “Follow Me Monday” video I’m at it again trying to answer as many questions as I can– which is not very many due to my rambling.

Enjoy!

    You have the CUTEST *Ma* EVER!!!
    I love your site. A friend referred me to it a couple months back. I’m addicted and check your site several times a day!
    My best score so far has been on Huggies diapers at Target. I don’t normally buy disposable diapers, I love my CLOTH DIAPERS (economical and environmentally friendly). But while in the middle of a move, I decided to buy a few packs of diapers to save on time.
    Thank you so much for ALL your time and hard work.

    I love your blog and videos. You have the latest info out the fastest. My boss told me you know it’s not normal how you spend so much time on coupons and try to find the latest deals. Normal people don’t do that but I don’t care if I’m not normal. I had another person tell me that too. I’m so glad there are others like me out there.

    cute!! I have been having a few problems at target with the coupons that print out at other stores that are manfac. coupons, they think that they are store coupons for other stores (such a meijer), bc they say redemable at meijer. Any tips?

    Collin, it seems as though you have a wonderful relationship with your “Ma”, same as my Grandma and I! Most people turn to friends with personal problems, questions, etc…I turned to Grandma! Long story short, 2 1/2 years ago I had my triplets. During my pregnacy Gram was diagnosed with colon cancer. At 83, she was a fighter! No issues with the surgery, but the day I was having the babies, she got pneumonia and she was dying. She was not responding to anyone when they talked to her, and they kept saying she would die in the next day or two. THe triplets had to go to the Childrens NICU (as they were 2 mo early). Some minor issues at first, but were told to expect it. 2 weeks of the NICU and they were ready to be xfrd to a phase 2 nursery. My sister and Gramps were at my Grams bedside, and he asked my sister if I had the triplets yet, (which he knew, but he was also 83 and just forgot) Before my sister could say anything, Grams picked her head up looked at Gramps and said “Dad! She had the triplets 2 weeks ago!) She put her head back down, closed her eyes for a second, than looked at my sister and asked if the babies and I were ok, and my sister said yes, and that the babies were getting out of the NICU. She said “Give them all kisses for me and tell her I will continue to watch over those babies” Those were her last words, and 5 minutes later she past away. The family and even the Docs said they were totally shocked, and have not seen that before, but obviously didn’t want to go until she knew we all were in the clear! I know, not a short story after all, but my point is, cherish every minute you can with her, and be thankful for that special bond!!

    That was too cool. Your house is beautiful. Do we ever find great deals on furniture on the cheap?
