My Awesome $0.67 CVS Trip Today!

Today while DH and Oldest were away I ran with the other 2 kiddos to Walgreens and CVS, more on Walgreens later. These 2 trips were very fast ones, I had only a few coupons to go along with the sales that started today and I needed to buy some Sunday papers. I bought 4 papers and I'm glad I did, some awesome coupons here.

Here is a breakdown of what I grabbed:

2 Stayfree Pads Buy 1 Get 1 free $3.99
used 2 $1/1 coupons

Betty Crocker Warm Delights $0.88 sale
used 2 $1/2 coupons plus
1 $.75/2 coupon

2 Skittles Buy1 Get 1 $0.89

I also used a $5.00 ECB from last week along with my coupons

Total came to $0.67!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going back for more after I clip my coupons, great week at CVS.

Now on to Walgreens, not a good trip. Kids were acting up and the young cashier didn't understand my coupons and how to ring them up and all I wanted was that awesome Dentyne gum deal this week so for now I'm slowing down on Walgreens . My receipt is so messed up I can't understand it and I'm very dissapointed I was not able to get some gum..

Which one do you shop at Walgreens or CVS, ever have a bad shopping trip at either one?

~The Lovely Little Table Lamp- A CSN Store Review~

Remember when I said I was going to do a CSN store review? Well I chose a cute little table lamp to replace my old lamp in the living room. I love the simple black base to this lamp and the shade is a cream/white sturdy and very well made shade, not floppy on the base at all, I love that! I will be browsing more of this store soon, very well packed box and it was shipped so fast.

I have paired the new lamp with a handknitted doily that my Mom knitted when she was younger. The sign says "Motherhood*Wisdom*Patience and chocolate chip cookies" I love this cute lil sign!

You can visit the CSN Stores here....Have fun browsing and let me know whatcha find!

The Dad's Bible- A Book Review

Dad's Bible: The Father's Plan is the perfect gift for fathers, fathers-to-be, and father figures of any age. The Dad's Bible is filled with challenging and helpful information designed to encourage and uplift fathers whose lives will be a priceless legacy for generations to come. Whether as a personal purchase, a Father's Day gift, or "just because," Dad's Bible is sure to draw the reader into quality personal time with our Heavenly Father.

 I gave this Bible to Richard for Father's Day yesterday. It is a hardback Bible and the pages are easy to turn, they aren't so thin that they stick together, I like that. The Bible is full of life lessons from other dads to aide in the Father role and to help equip Dads to build children's faith and leave them a spiritual legacy. This is a great addition to our collection of Bibles.

Thomas Nelson has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy.

Happy Father's Day!!

Happy Father's Day!

We are sitting here cooling off watching "Factory Made" with Daddy, he loves this show! He just finished mowing the grass and the kids helped me weed our flower garden.
Tomorrow we will give Daddy our gifties and have some ice cream cake from DQ, my new all time fav. dessert!! Ya'll should have told me along time ago how terribly yummy this was, so not good for my diet!!

Enjoy your Daddy this Holiday, sadly mine(and Richards)  are no longer with us but we will be thinking about our Daddies this weekend.

Last day of School and a 4H Meeting Pup Training

So the last day of school has come and gone, Crystal had her 4th grade clap out, the 4th graders walked the school and the parents clapped when they exited the school for the last time. Next year it's middle school for her! Both Abigail and Crystal received good grades are moving up, we are so proud of them!

So now that Summer is here we have a full schedule, Braces for Crystal and a week at Grandma's for Horse camp and tons of 4H meetings, Abigail gets to go to Superkids camp again this year. I have to get the lil guy ready for kindergarten next year too!

Here is Crystal and Coffee at the fairgrounds doing some groundwork on cones, alot of laughs involved here..lol..Coffee is about 2 but still pretty much a puppy and with the horses and birds she was very interested in looking around and not learning! Crystal hopes to show her in fair this year.

I have a feeling that this Summer will fly by, I hope to enjoy some sun and good reading and laughing with the Loves in my life!
So that's what I'm doing here, What are you doing this Summer?

Shopping at Target with Pennies Tonight

There was a $4/1  Olay body wash coupon in this past Sunday paper along with a Buy 1 Olay get Ivory soap free.

Target has price cut the Olay Body wash to $3.54 (my stores price), use the $4.00 coupon makes it FREE!

Ivory is 10 pack for $3.59 (again price in my store) so I paid just .59 cents each.

Glade was Clearence for $1.48, I had a $1.00 coupon.

We ran in for Childrens Zyrtec and had to buy something else for the girls so the overage from these coupons helped pay for the allergy meds!

Great haul for a quick stop!

List Price:
Trim Size:
5 1/2 x 8 1/4 
June 2010 

Happily Ever Laughter captures real-life stories from couples—stories chosen for their humor, variety of settings, and diversity of years married. As readers laugh along with each couple described, they will begin to understand that being able to see the humor in life helps greatly in keeping one’s marriage happy and healthy through the years. Includes stories from Chonda Pierce, Bob Stromberg, Daren Streblow, Kendra Smiley, Jeff Allen, John Branyan, Rhonda Rhea, David Dean, Dave Veerman, and Neil Wilson.
This was a short fun read that made me laugh so hard at times, I saw myself and my Husband  in many of  these stories. Many times you have to laugh at your spouse to lighten the mood! It's fun to read about other couples and how they deal with their situations, I was able to grab an idea or 2 here and there. I highly recommend reading this book this summer.
