I Love Coupons

Today was a great day for my coupons! I went to Safeway where they have he Nabisco crackers on sale for $2.00 a box with the club card. If you buy 5 boxes of the crackers you get a bonus of $5.00 off! I also had coupons for $1.00 off 2 bringing the cost down to .50 cents a box. I had one coupon for $1.00 one box. In the end I bought 25 boxes of Nabisco crackers in different flavors and I paid *drum roll please* $12.00! Now how is that for a bargain?
I also had coupons for the refridgerated Del Monte fruits in the glass jars. It is normally $4.79 but was on sale today for $3.99. I had a coupon for $1.00 off that I paired up with a buy one get one free coupon. The cashier even took off the full regular price of the Del Monte and not the sale price. So in the end with this deal I got 2 jars of great tasting fruit for $2.19!!!
I paid $14.19 and bought 25 boxes of Nabisco crackers and 2 jars of the refridgerated Del Monte fruit! How is that for a bargain?

Oh My Gosh!!

I had to go to town today to drop off some paperwork and to exchange gifts with a friend. I stopped off at JCPennys being as I had a coupon for $10.00 a $10.00 purchase. I bought Megan some leopard print leggings and an adorable Christmas dress. It is green crushed velvet on top with long sleaves and the bottom is an adorable plaid print. There is also the material that is like in tu tus that puffs the bottom out a bit. When I say totally adorable I mean it! I was originally $59.99 on for 50% off making it $29.99. I then had the coupon for $10.00 off and thenhad a friends bonus coupon for an extra 15% off! I will take pictures of Megan when she puts it on for Chruch tonight and at my brothers tomorrow.
I have to go make some fudge and hope to get in a quick nap being as sleep was impossible for me last night. Feet were cramping up and then my legs. It was 4AM when hubby feltbad for me andwas rubbing my legs and feet and back for me. Awwww what a sweet heart he was!

Goodwill Bargains

I am so thankful yesterday is over. It was non stop running for me it seemed. I did love Goodwill and I got a few great items at least.
The SSI appointment took over 90 minutes and Megan does not do well in small confined places for much time at all. She was squirming and getting very agitated after a short while. We have to wait and see if her payment goes up or down. I have some paperwork have to drop off this week and then we should be done with them for now.

This box of ornaments is going to be a craft project for the kids next week. I have been looking at the stores and these are so expensive to buy brand new. We are going to put paint inside of them and swirl them around to make cool colors! I will take pictures of the kids with them when we are done. Oh and I paid .99 cents for the box of these!
This was also 99 cents and is a cool looking box of older lights like icecicles. There are in pretty pastle type of colors. I am going to put them on my miniture tree or around the fire place mantle. I will post pictures of them when I decide where.

I love these table cloths now. It wasyes you guessed it 99 cents at Goodwill. I am in love with snowmen and have pretty much deleted all my Santa stuff. I love having the table covered so that when the kids make a mess it is easy to clean off and does not stain the table.
Yes I paid 99 cents once again for this new set of snowmen candles in the tins. I am going to use these as part of a Christmas gift. It is simple and very cute. I am not sure who is getting it but there will be more to go along with it. I just love new things to give at great prices.

Megan will just drink out of shot glasses for some odd reason. Part of her disability I guess. I found this shot glass from Rainforest Cafe, where I used to work at, and it was just .49 cents!  I am going to wash it up and put it in her stocking from Santa!

I think this was the best deal of my day. I love light houses and if you remember I have the set of Thomas Kincade light houses on my fireplace mantle along with a copper musical light house. I was able to get this yesterday at the same Goodwill for just .99 cents! I was so excited when I plugged it in and it worked. I would of bought it even if it did not work being as that is an easy fix.

My Life is Spinning Out of Control

I knew today was going to be a busy day for me. I was laying in bed last night with my mind going in a zillion different directions. Maybe make that a bazillion different ways.
School today was a two hour late start due to the weather. OK that part was cool I got to sleep in a bit longer qan Megan needed her beauty sleep as well. Megan had a night where she did not want to go to sleep. I think it was after midnight when she finally  settled down. SHe also had to sleep with Jason and me to keep her in bed and not up and wandering.
I got Megan to school being as she did not want to move even with the last start. I got her to school and rushed home to make phone calls. It is now almost four PM and I have more calls to make. I have been on the phone making calls and eing transfered from person to person for the last five hours now!
I have got most of my calls for today made at least so that is a blessing. Last night was another blessing with the Sunday night service at church. It was all singing and bell choir and beautiful. I will post a video of it later on. I was brought to tears with the final song and I just let the tears wash my face. I was not ashamed of them it was just so beautiful.

Sensodyne Iso Active Toothpaste review

I was asked by Shespeaks to try this tooth paste and review it. I am a suffered of super sensitive teeth and have ried all the tooth paste out there for this. Most of them did nothing to help my teeth and some had such a horrible tate I could not use them
I love this tooth paste to be honest. The first time I used it my thought was *Wow I feel like I just walked out of the dentist office for my cleaning!* I am not sure how to describe the taste. It is a bit like an Altoid flavor that burst into your mouth.
There is a lovely gentle foaming action that reaches all those hard to reach areas of your mouth and is a pleasant surprise to the normal paste I have been using. I also love the stand up container and pump action.
The Snesodyne Iso Active Tooth paste  came at a perfect time. I was suffering with two teeth that were getting crowns and one of those teeth was getting a root canal. My mouth was on high alert to anything cold or hot or sweet. After using this tooth paste for two weeks I was happy with how much better my teeth were doing. I was albe to brush them after my root canal and after both crowns. WIth my root canal my mouth was super infected and my jaw was all swollen as well as my face. The Sensodyne Iso Active tooth paste was easy to use and the foaming action cleaned the back pat of my mouth where it was even more tender.
If there was one draw back it is thatthe tooth paste glumps up at the opening a bit. It is easy to flcik off and not a bother to me nor a deturant to buying and using this paste again. I love it and give it five stars!

Happy Sales

I stopped off at Victorias Secret today to pick up Megan some leggings. They were on sale 2/22 and I had a coupon for $10 off! I was able to get a black pair and a gray pair.
I also picked up a Sugar High lip gloss and a coconut body spray in a gift set for $10 but with my $10 coupon it was FREE!
Bath $ Body Works was next. I picked out two of the three wick candles in Twisted Peppermint on sale 2/20. These are normally $19.50 each. I then found Twisted Peppermint 3 in 1 shampoo, body wash and bubble bath on clearance for 50% off making then $5 each. I bought two of those to bring my purchase up to $30. I then took off a coupon I had for $10 off a purchase of $30 or more. I ended up with two of the candles and two of the 3 in 1 products for just $20!
Then I bought two more of the 3 in 1s in Peppermint Twist on clearance for $5 each normally $10 each. So with this purchase of $10 I was able to get any item up to $13.50 for free. I could not find a thing that interested me so I got another 3 in 1!
I ended up spending $30 and got two candles and five 3 in 1s. It would of been $89.00 but I paid as I said in the end not counting tax $30!
