75% off perennials



Coming down with something?

August 22, 2013

I’m not feeling well today but I feel a lot better than I did earlier.

I was up at 3am with headache and nausea.   Yesterday it was 4am ‘ish and the day before the same. I was like this a few months ago too but it went away after a week.  I’ve been feeling pretty rough for several days now I just tried to ignore it.  Hopefully this is the worst of it and tomorrow I’ll be 100% better!

Aspirin, naps and Gatorade seem to be helping. Trip 8/19/2013 Glade Products

Restarting the blog

August 22, 2013

Due to family issues I stopped posting on my blog not soon after it started, but things have changed and I need an outlet.

Be looking for links to deals and shopping experiences and ways we are living more frugally through gardening, garage sales, thrift stores and bartering.

Walgreen’s trip 12/29/2011

December 30, 2011

Covergirl WetSlick gloss – clearance $1.59 x 4 = used 4 -$1 coupons and also got $1.60 unadvertised savings!  19cents each!  Woo hoo!!!!  I could have gotten more but they were out, I got the last ones.  I love lip gloss and use it all day, one of my favorite pleasures in life 🙂

Also found the Toll House chocolate chip christmas cookie mix on 1/2 price for $2.49 makes 30 cookies.  I can probably stretch it a little further and get another few out it.  Will be something fun to do with the kids this weekend.

In the pantry aisle found the Maruchin cup of noodles for .29cents.  I stocked up on those as well.  Easy snack for the kids and fast lunch at work for me.

So much is on clearance right now in the cosmetics aisle.  I have to go back tomorrow!

Do you think you’ll ever try living in another country?

November 7, 2011

Maybe, but where else is there to live?  After all, the USA has everything one could want…tropical, desert, mountains, forests, beaches, prairies.  I would only move if there was no more USA.
