As I drove home from getting my coupon deals this week, I found myself focused on the deals I didn’t get. I was disappointed that certain things weren’t in stock at my stores. Then I realized that sometimes I focus on the products that have been cleared off a shelf or a coupon that isn’t in an insert instead of the amazing deals that I do get. As this New Year begins, I plan to let those disappointments go and be grateful for all the deals that work. How did your week go?
