Skype + Family + Friends = Awesome

I receive a web cam for my birthday (over 6 months ago) but just used our computer to fully skype the other day.  
It was so fun.  Ashby just loved it.  I kind of want everyone to use it.  It's just excited to be able to see who you're talking to.

Although, I can imagine a few times when seeing who you a talking to might be rather...inconvient.  haha (thinking of a time when skyping with my mother-in-law, "oh Cheryl, I didn't know you were there...." )

I guess that is probably a technology that will one day be available in every phone.  Just like one day (soon) everyone really will have their own lap top (or mac book or Ipad or netbook). 


But I like Skype.  We were able to skype with some of our favorite people.  They are family and our friends.  We used to do everything together.  Then.  They moved.  But we all have survived.  We miss them.  And may be planning a trip to California later this year just because they will be there.  Until then we will probably learn to like Skype a lot.  

But probably NOT as much as this:

Pinching My Pennies

So this past November...or maybe October.  I went to a Newspaper sponsered Couponing class.  I know several people that "coupon" and decided to try it.  So we have been receiving the Sunday paper since then.  Yeah.  So it does work.  I save money.  I find deals.  I feel good about my small way of being a "couponer" (sorry to any of you who find "couponers" annoying)  But I recently have been introduced to several more website that TELL you what the deals are and where to find the coupons.
But...I still havn't figured out how to make the time to read through all the crazy, and I mean CRAZY, cheap deals these websites have.
One of them is
Do any of you Coupon?  How do you make the time?  I'm sure once I figure out a routine it will be no prob...but in the mean time I feel like each week I'm literally missing out on great deals.
