Deals of the Week

I'm a dork, I know. But I'm pretty proud of some of the deals I can come across. Especially for Christmas presents! It's September and I already have gifts! Don't worry, I'll only be posting the ones for the kids, other gifts will have to remain secret until you open them :o)

This week, I have received the following for FREE:

1/2 pound of Roast Beef - and it's yummy!
Container of Huggies wipes
McCormick Black Peppercorn Grinder - my favorite pepper!
Disney Princess scooter for Eve for Christmas - BEST find :o)
Fisher Price block car for Victor for Christmas
Purple striped notepad for Eve for Christmas

I received the following for a great deal in my eyes:

8 Sara Lee loaves of bread (no HFCS!) - $2. Total. That's right, 25c each!
3 Fuze drinks for 25c each. They were ok. Flavored water is all I thought they were.
Huggies Pure and Natural diapers for Sylvia - $1.99 Too bad she outgrew these already, so her future husband (long story) will be getting them. He lives a block away.
Operation (the game) for Dirk for Christmas - $5

I'm also doing some paid surveys and other odds and ends to get extra $ put into an account for our new house, a boat and second vehicle next year. I'll keep that total updated for you so you can all see our progress! Right now, it's at $200. Not much, but it's a start! And with all these deals, I'll be able to put more away bcuz I'll be saving in the grocery area! Yay for a new house!

Sylvia - 3 Weeks!

I bought a new camera! I haven't seen my other one in about 10 days. Half of her life! So I used up pretty much all my fun $ and bought a new camera. Enjoy. I'll be on a picture-taking marathon tonight :o)

Welcome Baby Sylvia!

Sylvia Ann arrived yesterday, Sept 1 at 7:53am! She was 8# 10.9oz and 22 inches long. She's adorable!

Dirk's First Day of First Grade!

I have a First Grader! I asked him how his first day went (August 30) and he said, "It's way funner than Kindergarten!" :o)
