A Good Walgreen's Trip

$1.08 (13 CENTS before tax!!).  Yep, that's the grand total for 8 items including full price toilet paper and hubby's favorite deodorant!  Of which we sadly needed both.  Do ignore the Gillette body washes on the receipt, they weren't ringing up correctly and I didn't feel like bringing it to the attention of this particular cashier so I had them removed.

We did one transaction previous to this one for the Walgreen's Excedrin promo (buy $20 get $10 register receipt).  We had 2 free product coupons, 2 $2.50 coupons and 1 $1.00 coupon and paid $8.97 pre-tax for 5 bottles of Excedrin (price before coupons and tax $23.95).

Total pre-tax for both transactions was $9.10 for 13 items = .70 each.  Not bad!

I'm always getting in on the end of the sales weeks though.  I would have liked to have gotten more of the Renuzit Crystals for .99 but, alas, they only had one package left.

We would also like to invite you to join the *brand new* Lower Your Alexa Blog Hop and make some new friends!

Awesome!
I was proud of myself for a killer Rite Aid haul this week, but mad at the same time. I never make it to the store til the weekend and then they run out of stuff, or they are starting to post Sunday's prices and I end up confused, lol

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event. 
There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding.
To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store.

Boring Cash No More!!

Ahhhh! I just learned how to turn money into a really cool work of art!! Seriously, this is really cute and fun too. Foldin' Money can help you turn plain old cash into a really fun crafty gift! It's kind of like paper crafts with a real monetary value. Ha!

Foldin' Money has design kits to help you make the perfect gift for anyone on your list this year. Both US and Canadian currency directions are included in these design kits. For review, we received the "red" kit which has templates and step-by-step directions for a cake, tree, heart, and tie. We found the instructions to be very, very easy to follow. Ladies, I think even your husbands could fold money into the perfect gift! Did that sound rude? Sorry Fellas!

What we found really fun was the endless ways that you could possibly use the Foldin' Money designs. I thought it would be really fun to put one of those little strands of battery operated lights onto the folded money tree! What a fun gift idea and you …

#Halloween Spaghetti & Eyeballs for Sadie Hawkins {The Daily Chaos 10/14/2011}

This post must be written lightening fast because I must leave soon to pick up my daughter from the high school's Sadie Hawkins dance and ferry her and her date to their next destination. How's that for a long, stressful run-on sentence full of far too many prepositional phrases.


We had the distinct pain honor of hosting the dance dinner for 19 teenagers tonight. I don't know about you but I remember Sadie Hawkins as the dance where the guys always said no. Seriously, teenage boys can cut a teenage girl's confidence to shreds. Oh who am I kidding, grown men still do that. So we had dinner in the backyard complete with Halloween lights and a cauldron full of bubbling homemade root beer. My husband loves the homemade root beer and is always the dry ice master chef of the brew. At one point, he came in from outside all dejected because apparently the ladle had fallen into the cauldron and the kids had been trying to fish it out with their hands.... he didn't feel like …
