Welcome Jodi! I used to feel that if I had a coupon I HAD to use it...it was that bargain shopper in me. But honestly - I can't remember that last time I walked in M's was....I did walk in Hobby Lobby last week but it was just to buy a gift card for a friend and then I walked right back out - didn't go any further than the cash register! WOW!
You'll find some great ideas reading back through the posts - and be inspired! Use what you have instead of buying something new - that's my moto for 2012!
