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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

the big qubie giveaway! {& sunday shopping 9-4-11}

Happy Labor Day!  I hope you all are having a very fun & relaxing holiday weekend. I thought it would be fun to kick off the fall with a FUN giveaway to get you guys motivated to start using those coupons again.  Summer can be kinda crazy with vacations and activities and kids at home, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Wow, you all had SO much to say last week about shopping at Walgreens.  I really appreciate all the feedback--it is great to hear about your experiences both good and bad.  For me it is the best way to learn! I was a little paranoid about losing my leftover Register Rewards or letting them expire, [...]

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Is it just me or do the weekends seem to fly by? I had a lot of fun shopping at Walgreens yesterday.  I get a lot of reader comments about Walgreens.  It seems like many of you have nothing but trouble with that store [...]

Thank you all for your sweet comments on my last post.  I could definitely feel the love!  I promise to try not to get all whiney on you again anytime soon. I had a lot of fun shopping yesterday.  Back-to-school deals rock!  I just love all the fun freebies & rock bottom prices that pop [...]

sunday shopping 7-17-11

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I don't know about you, but ours seemed to go way too fast!  Although I did skip the drugstores this weekend, I did make a quick trip to Publix and Staples yesterday to pick up a few items that I would consider "needs" and not just "wants." [...]

I decided to skip the drugstores again this week in favor of something a little more fun: back-to-school shopping!  I know for many of you, the new school year still seems far away, but here in our district, (year-round) school actually starts this week, and Princess will be heading off to Kindergarten on Thursday. Her [...]

I had a hard time drumming up any enthusiasm for drugstore shopping this week.  There were a few things I would've liked to get at CVS, but since I completely neglected to buy any newspapers while on vacation last month, I am missing quite a few coupons, including the Proctor & Gamble ones required for [...]

Happy Memorial Day! I couldn't resist popping in to Walgreens yesterday to take advantage of their fabulous 2 day sale (mostly because I was almost out of Reynolds Wrap!)  There were a ton of freebies in this week's ad, and while I ended up skipping many of them, I was happy to see everything in [...]

sunday shopping: 5-22-11

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Mine was mostly spent preparing for Trouble's Sweet Shop party, which is happening next weekend.  As usual, I've gone a little crazy with DiY projects, but  I can't wait to show you all the fun things I have planned! I was so wrapped up in party plans [...]
