PS to my grocery deal

Just an extra note. I just realized. Tops spit out a 2.00 off my next order because I had purchased so many glade products!!!! This just keeps on getting more and more exciting! Am I pathetic or what? I just think I have come on some really good deals!!!! :)

CVS & Coupon Addict!

Okay, this is not good . . . or maybe it is?!?!? Anyway, I have become a coupon addict and a CVS'er! But, I have found you can get some really good deals if you do this! Below is my order from CVS that I bought today. With coupons and everything, my total came to 11.04. Now, that may not seem like a BIG deal to you but, I also received 6.00 in extra care buck to use on my next purchase which I will be doing! That brings the order down to 5.04. That's barely 1.00 per item!!!! I think I got some fabulous deals. I have been needing a new toothbrush because my children got into mine and I hate using it after them even though I have. Shampoo is always a good thing. I use the clean & clear on my face and so that was not wasted and toothpaste is also a necessity! I also think that I did pretty good at Tops as well. Everything below came to 23.46 after coupons and everything. Before savings, my total was 58.90!!!!! Again, these are items I will use. I buy most of this stuff for the Christmas/New Year holidays anyway so I saved myself some money in the long run! The only things that maybe I did not need was the Glade plug ins )but they were only about 2-3.00 for the two and the mandarin oranges were .45 but I will use them! Other than that, all stuff I plan on using anyway! So, I'm grinning like an idiot and at least I think that I got some good buys. If I didn't please don't pop my bubble and let me know!!!!!

Our Christmas Program

We had our Christmas program last Sunday evening. The children acted out the Christmas story while our Sunday School Superintendent read verses about each part. I think it went okay since we only had 2 practices!
The picture below is quite dark. My husband said he could not get a good shot with it being so dark in the church. It is a picture of all of the children singing. Below is our Mary and Joseph. Joseph was actually a girl because none of the little boys wanted to do it! She didn't seem to mind too much!

I know I've said this before but . . .

If you are looking to earn a little extra cash, this is the place to go! You go to websites and then evaluate them and get paid for it. It has seemed to work for me so far. Why not give it a try?

Extra Money!

Need an extra 500.00 this Christmas season? Try out for a chance here. You can have a chance to win a 500.oo Wal-mart gift card but hurry, it all ends on Monday - December 15th! Also, another way to make the money go further this Christmas is to use coupons. Sometimes you can get things for really cheap or even free!

My first free sample!

Okay, so i received my first free sample in the mail the other day. I was excited! It came in a pretty decent sized box and was from easy closets. Now, I was under the impression that I was getting some sort of thing to organize my closets with! I looked at the box and assumed it had to be assembled! It was rather heavy so had to be something good!
When I opened the box, much to my surprise, there were six wooden blocks inside. That's it - 6 wooden blocks. Oh yeah, I think that there was some sort of flyer promoting these "closets" too! My husband and I had a good laugh.Has anyone else out there received something that they were not expecting it to be along the free sample line? If so, leave a comment and tell me about it. Please don't tell me I am the only one!

If anyone wants their own free sample of blocks, you can go here to order them! :)

Homeschool Report Forms!

I have found a really good site for homeschoolers. If you need any type of form from report cards to attendance charts, this is the place to go!

Oh Christmas Tree

Well, it's Christmas time again. I don't know if I am ready for it or not but I guess it's time so we need to get ready. Below is a picture of our Christmas tree. I like our tree. It's not "fancy" but it's ours and unique! We have everything on there just about! We actually collect rare and unusual ornaments. Every time we go on vacation, we attempt to get an ornament from that place. Makes for a good time to reminisce!

Above is my Christmas village. I believe I have 27 houses including my skating pond. I takes up way too much room but I can't not put it up. I covers our entire air hockey table plus another table. I hope to get something different built for it for next year. We will see!
