The IRS is STILL holding our tax refund hostage. They *might* look at it within the next oh...30-60 days. Hah!
I do hope they decide to pay us interest on it since they've had it since February!
We had been really counting on that money to help us pay back stuff from our adoption of Mariah and help with her medical bills but hey, the IRS had other plans. Or maybe they didn't have a plan at all. I think THAT was the problem.
I was TICKED off about it... but trying to keep living within our budget when our budget is umm... being held up has proven a little tricky.
So in an effort to make our money go farther, I've started couponing. I follow all of the coupon sites I can find on facebook. I bought the Sunday paper for the first time today and I print off coupons from the internet.
Today I saved over $80 at Walgreens and got $7 in register rewards. Whoo hoo!
I saved $22 at Food Lion and spent $20. Got $1 back to use next time.
I saved $28 at CVS and spent $38.
By far I got the most stuff at Walgreens :)
Thanks Uncle Sam for an important life lesson, but ya know... I'd like my money now please!
