Saturday Shopping Trip... Not Quite Extreme Couponing

I'm a couponer, yes.  I just can't quite get "Extreme" with it.... yet.  Of course, I am referring to TLC's Extreme Couponing where the people buy 400 million dollars of groceries for 2.5 cents.  Maybe I just don't need 2500 sticks of deodorant?  All joking aside, couponing is a way of life and today was no exception.


My most recent shopping trip resulted in getting just over $100 of groceries for $30-something.  Not spectacular, but not bad.  Everyone likes to see my receipt when I arrive home from the grocery store but today I heard "not your best trip, Mom".. ha!!  I got 47 items for $32.81 which calculates out to .70 per item and this included a family pack of chicken breasts, family pack of ground beef, and a bottle of laundry detergent.  I'll give myself a pat on the back and keep counting my pennies!

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. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Fantastic Modern Rugs from AllModern.com and a $25 Giveaway

NOW CLOSED, thanks for entering!! Winter has arrived with a vengeance here! Along with the snow and cold outside are the wonderful things that get tracked indoors. Can you hear the sarcasm? I can nearly hear my poor floors screaming every time my husband drags in ice melt pellets, wet snow and mud. We have tile floors, wood laminate floors and also carpeting. Each one of my flooring types have rugs to help protect them... and as a bonus, rugs are just plain fun! We jokingly call the big 8x5 rug in the living room the "messy mat" because it catches all my husband's crumbs. Now is a great time to invest in new and modern rugs from AllM odern.com (part of the CSN Stores network) as it's an inexpensive way to change the entire feel of your home. What better time to change the look in your home than the dreary wintertime! It's like a mood pick-up for your home and family. I could really use some new runners and this one is beautiful: However, I like
