"We're Going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo...

...How about you, you, you? You can come too, too, too. We're going to the zoo."

That song is permanently etched in my brain now after Ella's school performance this morning. Here is the video of her section of the play. She was a chicken :)

MOZY...Might be the best $4.95 you'll ever spend!

If you don't have a backup service I highly suggest Mozy.

It is an online backup service that saved all our precious memories a few weeks ago when a virus took over my computer profile. It deleted all my files under my user profile...which included every picture I have taken over the last 7 years.

We don't backup our pics on CD's, so if my hubby wouldn't have signed up for Mozy over a year ago I would have lost every precious picture of my babies! So this is my PSA for the day...if you haven't backed up your files do it now!

Even if you do backup to CD I would still suggest it. It is smart to have your files backed up and housed somewhere other than your own home. It is $4.95 a month, but oh so worth it.

My New Project

I'm once again attempting to coupon and focus more on saving money and getting our budget under control. We do a decent job now, but there is always improvements that could be made.

Seeing alot of friends save big money couponing has motivated me to think about ways I could be saving as well. Thus, my new project began...

I have started a blog called My goal was to start a blog about my savings journey that would motivate me to stay on the right track financially. For some reason, I find accountability in my new blog...even if I don't have any readers. I love to journal about new things I am learning on the road to money-saving success :)

I have started the site as a way to highlight my journey of couponing, but I hope to expand it in the future to feature alot of other great life tips on budgeting and household management.

I also got on last week and finally set up a working budget for our family. I played around with mint about 6 mos. ago, but I never made a serious budget on there. I have used Microsoft Money in the past, but has alot of new features that make it much easier to use. And, best of all its FREE! Plus, if you have an iPhone you can download the free app so that your budget is always with you! It really is a great service, and I highly suggest you play around with the features of the site to see if it would work for you too.

The Devastation is Heartbreaking...

This video has been circulating facebook via YouTube. The Cumberland River, which runs through downtown Nashville, crest at 51.86 feet, its highest level since 1937. Flood stage is 40 ft. The all-time record is 56.2 feet in 1927.

The following organization is one my family became familiar with in the months following Katrina.

I wanted to share the link with everyone in case you are looking for a way to help physically or financially. Being a Nashville-based disaster relief effort, I feel confident that funds donated through this source will go to helping those whose lives have been altered by the floods in and around middle Tennessee & southern Kentucky.
