To all wishcasters: Like a few weeks ago, I'm going to attempt to check in with each of you tomorrow, but please know that I'm sending all my hope/good vibes/wishing mojo to you guys - as you wish for yourselves, so I truly wish for you also.

For about the last four months, my sister and I have become hardcore couponers. Not to the insane level of people on Extreme Couponing (I see no need to buy things that I will never use simply because I can), but it's addictive and great to see the costs of your groceries going down. Also, I've reached out to various organic companies and they've sent me coupons, which makes my life a bit easier and food not quite so expensive.
Now I need to branch out. The past few years I've been really good about spending on most frivolous things and I'm slowly curbing my grocery bills. That leaves ordering out. My problem is that I hate cooking. It's only made worse after a long day at work and with the weather being so hot lately...it's a waste of money, usually not a healthy food choice, and the time it takes order/wait could make food. For me, I need to make that leap and understand that part. That while it might seem easier to order something, in that time, I could've cooked something small - cheap and healthier.
I wish to remember these things whenever I'm about to just shrug dinner off. I also wish to see an increase in my salary in the near future. Money is really tight and a little wiggle room would be wonderful.
