An Inaugural Run

I broke in my new running shoes today. The shoe store girl said the lifespan of a pair of good running shoes is six months. It seems that my old ones were about six years overdue for retirement, and I didn't even know it!

We waited all day for the temperature to climb above ten so we could go running and I can't verify that it ever did especially after windchill. Yikes. Why am I doing this again??
Oh yes, it was resolution number 1... And while we're discussing resolutions, I saved $20 by using coupons at the grocery store today!! Not too bad for my first try. It can only get better from here!


  1. Yay for coupons and new shoes!

  2. Not sure if some of your stores "double," but all it is, if you have a coupon with low enough value (like at Kroger, $.55 or less), they will "double" the value of the coupon. For example, a 50 cent coupon will actually take a $1 off the total (.50x2=$1). Some stores only do this on certain days, but Kroger does this all day, everyday.

  3. Great job on the shoes and savings! I would love to use coupons more, but I still haven't figured out how to use them efficiently. If you have tips, please share!

  4. Those are the same shoes that I have and I LOVE them! I bought my first pair last year and replaced them with the updated model this year.
