sunday shopping 10-9-11

Happy Monday! We picked up our 15 empty Operation Christmas Child boxes at church over the weekend & the whole family is excited about starting to fill them.  I thought for sure I'd be able to pick up some stuff this weekend, but neither Walgreens or CVS had very exciting sales this week. Remember to [...]

Wow!  You guys REALLY had an an opinion yesterday about my dress options!  It was so great to see what everyone thought, and I really, really appreciate all the feedback!  I still haven't made a final decision--I may bring them all--but I am leaning towards 1 or 2.  Or 6.  Or maybe 5.  But I [...]

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend.  Here in Florida the weather finally cooled off just a little & now it actually feels like fall.  Well, at least to us. (Yes, 75 degrees is a "cool" day here!) We celebrated by turning off the A/C for the first time in about 8 [...]

This week has been a little crazy!   Several of you have asked to see the news clips (which is so very sweet of you.)  The Wednesday appearance is available to watch here or you can check out the Thursday spot here. I usually get up verrrrry early (as in, the middle of the night for [...]

a BIG announcement: thursday shopping 9-22-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

I had a fun little shopping trip today.  There wasn't too much I needed to get but I was psyched to see those Orville Redenbacher pop-up bowls on sale.  I love those things!   I  also made a little video today, but it wasn't to show here.  It is for my NEW...(wait for it).... ONLINE [...]

sunday shopping 9-18-11

Do you ever feel like you are drowning in stuff? I spent most of the day yesterday cleaning out my bedroom closet, dressers, & desk.  I filled several bags with items for Goodwill and another bag with trash, and I came to the stark realization that I have far too many things. Life has been [...]

Is it just me or has this week flown by?  I can hardly believe the weekend is almost here! I had a fun little shopping trip this morning.  After Sunday's fiasco with the girls, it sure was nice to shop all by myself while they were at school.  I was so relaxed that I even [...]

First things first:  The winner of last week's E-Mealz giveaway is....  "I usually start by seeing what I already have on hand. I have a mass of recipes from various websites plus websites like allrecipes.com will allow you search by ingredient so I use that to see what meals I could make from stuff I [...]

Wow, you guys had a LOT to say last week about the new season of Extreme Couponing and last week's video!  I loved reading all your comments and it makes me beyond happy to know that you all are committed to using coupons in a way that is ethical, respectful of others, and nice. And, [...]

extreme couponing for normal {and nice} people: thursday shopping 9-1-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

It was just announced that TLC's Extreme Couponing Season 2 will begin September 28th.  I know a many of you probably found this site after watching the first season, and sometimes I feel a little torn about the show. On the one hand, TLC's Extreme Couponing has introduced a lot of people who were struggling [...]

It's hard to believe it is Monday already--our weekend really flew by.  We hosted a very fancy Princess Tea Party on Saturday, which I promise to share with you very soon, and then on Sunday we headed to the Pirate Fest at Fisherman's Village, a local tourist spot.  Our girls weren't really into the pirates [...]

thursday shopping 8-25-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

One of the most common questions I hear from new couponers is "why aren't I saving more on food?"  The thrill of free toothpaste and deodorant--while still fun--loses a bit of luster the moment we realize we still have to eat. It is super important, especially at the beginning, not to fall into the trap [...]

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  On Saturday we attended a very cool "Spy 006" themed birthday party for the son of some friends (who turned 6--get it?)  Everyone had a blast.  You know the sign of a good party is when none of the guests will leave! Coming from [...]

thursday shopping 8-18-11 {& weekly shopping linky}

I had no idea last week's shopping trip would be so controversial!  Okay, so maybe 2 slightly snarky comments does not a controversy make, but you guys are usually so overwhelmingly positive that it did throw me for a loop.  Mostly because last week's shopping trip was actually fairly "normal"--bread, eggs, yogurt, frozen pizza--at least [...]
