I have decided I am on a Stress Elimination Diet. I am eliminating things that cause me stress. Tonight I threw away an entire pile of coupons. While I would like to use them right now they are causing me stress by sitting on my desk not being used. In the very short amount of time I have couponed I learned one thing, there will be another coupon for that in a few weeks. So they are gone until I am ready to coupon again.
There are too many things in life that I "should" be doing. I should coupon, exercise, scrapbook, craft, read, garden, memorize scripture, eat healthy. I am sure you have a list of your own of things you know you should be doing but don't.
Not that I am giving up on my garden already. And I love my exercise routine even if it is hard to prioritize. And if I am going to work full time eating healthy so I feel strong is more important than ever. And certainly my working isn't leading to our not needing to save money anymore so I definitely will still be using coupons. But sometimes the stress of all you should do drives you crazy. And tonight as I was going through my desk those coupons just started making me CRAZY. So I tossed them. And it felt great.
