I must have eaten rather late yesterday because I tossed and turned and didn't sleep very well.  I had eaten  4 eggs with chorizo for "breakfast".  I had ground beef defrosted so I made 2 hamburger patties with my flaxseed as the binder.  I also added a slice of cheese to each patty.  I ate the first patty with mayo and mustard.  I was able to eat the second one but I only put mustard.  I wasn't hungry after that.  I had been moving and grouping items around the house so I had my workout from moving all my cases of water, BBQ sauces, refried beans, Rotel and chick peas cans.  I need to make room in my kitchen for all this so I may end up donating some or giving some to my mother.  I went to bed somewhat early since I had to get up early for work.  I knew I would see a large number but I wasn't expecting that.  But that's what happens when you have to weigh in at 4am.  I took a can of tuna for lunch however I never got around to eating it.  While at work, I was busy looking for coupons on the Internet.  I found the Brawny paper towels coupons and these were for $1 off any 2 roll or larger pack so I printed 2.  I already had 2 printed up in my envelope.  After work I headed to Kmart to get my bargains.  I got 4 packs of the Brawny, I found some facial masks that were on sale 2/$3.  I also needed a new eyeshadow brush.  I found another coupon for the M&M's that were on sale yesterday but I know this store and they always forget to take down the sale sign.  So sure enough they had taken most of the signs off but they left one behind just for me!!  I just wanted to make sure I got over the $25 limit so I could qualify for the double coupons. So as I checked out, I kept an eye on the register, sure enough the candy rang up $3.29.  I kinda acted dumb and said "I thought those were 4 for $10?" She decided to check for herself and I told her that it was way on the other end of the store and she found an end cap near her register and luckily for me, it also still had the sign 2/$5.  I didn't get to look at it but I'm sure the expiration date was on there which was yesterday.  I watched her scan my coupons and I watched the screen to make sure they doubled and they did. So I got the paper towels for $3.97 a pack and the candy for 50 cents.  I'm unable to get zero balance at checkout because stores around here don't double coupons or they put restrictions like $25.00 limit.  So I take what I can get.  One time I purchased ball point pens that were on sale for 2/$1.  I had a $1 off 2 packages.  So they were free. I have shampoo that I also got for free since it was on sale for $1 and the coupon was for $1 off.  I've gotten popcorn for free and of course my recent purchase of razors.  So I can't complain too much because I have gotten some free items just not everything like they do on the show.

Okay I'm getting off my soapbox now and off to cook some pork chops!  (I'm starving now!)
