Mailbox Monday

Its that time again...mailbox Monday! This was a slow week, but still a good one. We received a free back of chex mix along with some EOS ladies shaving creme. Looks like we are still stacking up a good stash of "travel size" items. These will also come in handy for the time that I spend in the hospital having the baby. 

Stay tuned to the blog, I have lots of ideas coming up! Many blessings!

I love to sew!

Here are a couple of my latest projects, burp cloths and Pacifier keepers! I have fallen in love with sewing, and I wish I could do it all day everyday, but that is just not possible. However I am able to fit in a couple of projects here and there. I will be making batches of these if you are interested in purchasing a set for an upcoming angel! Enjoy!

Wal-mart & CVS deals of the day!

So today I tried a couple of Wal-Mart and CVS deals, and I was happy with the results!

The first picture is the wal-mart deals, everything pictured cost me less than $3.00! Here is a list of the prices and coupons used:
  • Gillette Body Wash $2.97 each, used 2-$2.00 off coupons and 2-B1G1 Coupons from recent Proctor and Gamble inserts. ($1.94 for all 4, or 49¢ each)
  • Oil of Olay Body Wash $3.97 and Ivory 3pk $1.07, used $4.00 off Olay Total effects(UPC was same coupon group) and used free Ivory with the purchase of Oil of Olay. (Both free plus 3¢ overage)

  • 2-Tide Travel 1 load detergent 97¢ each, used 2-$1.00 off any size Tide. (Both free plus 6¢ overage)
Total Spent $2.48 excluding tax, cheaper than one bottle of body wash!!

The second picture is the CVS deals, granted...not everyone is pitching a fit for the Huggies Jean diapers like my husband is for our daughter....BUT it still worked out to be a great deal for less than $2.00 out of pocket.
