CLUSTERMUCK

I don't like unorganized coupons.  It's annoying, and it's not my style.  Yet, I've let them go in trade for food writing and house stuff.  But that's no way to save money.

Today's goal: Get this clustermuck of a mess, back in order.

But first, dig my Easy Bake Oven experiment from last night.  Chocolate cookies with brown flour and lots and lots of yum. 

Best new fan oven, ever.

    1. This is my Easy Bake Oven. Not a real one, but with it being a fan oven, it's perfect for baking so we call it and Easy Bake Oven.

  5. I've just watched an episode of HONEY BOO BOO in which one of the daughters says to their mom that thanks to couponing they have enough toilet paper to supply the survivors in the case of apocalypse :)

    1. Crapper paper is a wonderful thing to get for free. Though I don't care and cannot stomach watching Boo Boo or her mother.

  6. You are an evil, evil person, posting that delicious looking cinnamon roll up there so that's it the first thing I see and then CRAVE!!! Evil, I tell you! :)

    Your cookies look crispy. They remind me of the molasses cookies my mom used to buy at Safeway (heck, for all I know they still sell them). They were chewy and yum, yum, yummy! Okay, now I'm going to be craving cinnamon rolls AND cookies!!! Argh!

    1. These are sorta like molasses cookies, in a way. I did even make a molasses one, but it turned out to be more like a gingerbread cookie.

      How'd your exercise go today? I still have to get my short walk in.

  8. I'm so glad you're enjoying your new counter top oven. I've been looking at indoor grills. Umm, yeah, totally expensive!

    1. Love my Easy Bake Oven. Love it, love it, love it.

      Indoor grill, is that a grill top, or like something at Jersey Diner? One of those big-ass grills, perfect for breakfast goodies and burgers.

    1. If you click Easy Bake Oven, you'll see my new toy.

      It's not really one, but it's what we call it because it's so small and with it being a fan oven, makes great bakes.

  11. You did those with an Easy Bake oven? I couldn't even cook with that! Mine ended up on fire!

    1. Here's the post I did with my Easy Bake Oven.

      It's not really one, but it's what we call it because it's small enough and it's a fan oven, which is perfect for bakes.

  12. Those sure do look like they have lots and lots of yum. Mmmmmmm...

    I know all about awesome stuff getting in the way of other awesome stuff. It's hard to balance all the awesome stuff we do!! Hope your coupon pile becomes more organized. We have two coupon booklets coming out this week in the free paper. Hoping for some good stuff to clip! :)

    1. I like that, awesome stuff getting in the way of awesome stuff. Next week I go on a food-writing schedule so I'll see how that works out.

      Free papers? That is fantastic.

  13. Nothing is too pressing that can't wait for the eating of chocolate cookies.

  14. I have a mini oven like that although I now end up using it for making foodie pendants out of clay, LOL.

    Being disorganized like that can be tough but I know you will power through and save money, you are a super thrifter which I find so inspiring.

    Those cookies look awesome!

    1. I have read about people using their counter ovens, even fan ovens for clay. Pretty neat.

      Usually, I am super organized with my coupons. It's one of the major keys in saving money. But I've been baking and writing so much that the coupons are piling.

      Thanks about the cookies and nice words.

      Read your post today. Hope your Wally World continues to offer fresh and fairly priced foods. That would be wonderful.

      Do you have an Aldi?

  15. Mmm mmm. I've never cooked with brown flour. That's a great idea and recipe. Thank you Happy Whisk.
