First Day of School!

My baby went to back to school yesterday. It is his first day back, and I can’t believe how fast he is growing. I admit I do miss him not being here with me all day. He was very excited to go back to school and see all his friends. He’s excited now but we’ll see how he feels in May. Here is a picture of my little man back for his first day of school.

Buying for Charity

I know I’ve posted before about how I give away some of the great deals I find to charity. But I came across a great blog called Coupon Cravings. She had this great giveaway about how much could you buy at CVS for just $5 for charity. I wanted to post about it earlier, but I was kinda busy so it ended before I could.

I think this is an awesome idea so it inspired me today. I already had plans to get the Pert Plus shampoo and Sure deodorant that is B1G1F this week. I bought 18 bottles of Pert Plus and 6 Sure and my grand total was a -.63! I had to buy a candy to get my total over 0, and it was a whopping 20 cents! I have NEVER done that well before. I normally have a $1 or right around a dollar total or higher. I was psyched! I promise I didn’t clear the shelves and left plenty for other shoppers so please no nasty comments. This was $85 worth of items before sale prices for FREE! I didn’t post this to brag, but to show that a lot of good can be done getting these great deals. If I gave the shelter $20 then that money wouldn’t go very far. Instead I can take that same $20 and buy $100 or more of items to give to them.

TMR Frugal Living Tip #16

Today’s thrifty tip is if you get sugar ants then spray a mixture of vinegar and water. You mix half vinegar and half water in a spray bottle and shake. Then just clean the surface as you normally would and just spray the infested area. Don’t wipe it but let it dry on it’s own. It takes a day or two but it works for me.

$50 Gas Card Drawing Starts Tomorrow!

I’m a little later than promised but the drawing will run the whole month of August and last day will be Labor Day. Then the drawing will be held the next day on Tuesday September 2nd.

I changed the top prize to a $50 Gas Card! The 2nd prize will be a $25 Tupperware GC to my store, and 3rd prize will be a bowl set retailing for $10-15. So 3 people will win, and all the details will be given tomorrow on how to earn entries into the drawing. I hope everyone is as excited as I am! I changed the top prize since the gas prices are so expensive. The winner will be able to choose from a Chevron, Exxon, Texaco, or Shell card.
