Okay, here is the run down on Josh's eagle project for those that would like to contribute. The project will be held on Saturday, Aug. 8 in Orem on 1200 N stake pavilion just west of Bonneville Elementary School. He is hosting a bake sale there to raise money for shipping costs. Meanwhile, the scouts will be picking up donations of various items from around the stake. any leftover money will be used to purchase items to fill the boxes. The boxes will be going to 1. My Nephew Chance who is currently serving in Iraq (to be distributed to various soldiers in his unit). 2. to a wonderful foster parent who is serving there as well. I am attaching his flyer:

If you are able to help, please place the items in a plastic bag and put it on your front porch. By 8 a.m. AUGUST 8TH
There will be a bake sale August 8th at the stake pavilion (1200 North) to raise money to ship the packages overseas.
Josh will be the very first Eagle Scout in both John's and my family and we are just so excited for him. FYI I have not had to do one thing for this project. Josh has completely organized, posted flyers, made posters and all of the other things by himself. (I did make 2 announcements at church for him). Josh also very nicely asked me to help organize and run the bake sale while he goes with the scouts to pick up the items.
If you can contribute in any way it woud be greatly appreciated.

Hope the Eagle Project is comming along well! Wish I was there to help out.
Couponing is great, you can put a little, or a lot of time into it depending on your interest. The easiest way to do it is (if you have a newspaper) clip the coupons for the Smartsource, or red plum or procter and gable inserts that come with the Sunday paper. Or if you go to, you can just print off the coupons you want. Then just look at your clipped coupons now and then while you are reading the grocery add and figure out what is on sale that you have a coupon for. It's amaizing how quickly the savings add up with just .25 and .50 cent coupons. Try it, you will become addicted.
