Save 50% with the Dollar General Home Sale Event 2/12-/2/19!

This post brought to you by Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

Everyone loves to save money. I am always looking for good deals on home decor. We just recently had a Dollar General store open in my small town. I have found some really great deals for my house. I was excited when I heard about the Dollar General Home Sale Event from 2/12/ thru 2/19!

The best part is you can print a 50% off coupon which is good in-store only. You could save money on all house decor items, housewares, kitchen tools, bedding, rugs, and so much more. This is a great deal.

I have had my eye on a certain wall clock which would look great in the spare bedroom we are redecorating. The clock has a great old-fashioned look which I really like. The price is normally $10 but with the 50% off item, then I would only spend $5! I am also looking at buying new bedding, decor for the bedroom like wall prints, and window treatments. This is a great savings for me which allows to stretch my dollars even further. With cost of living rising, I really need all the savings I can find.

Hurry as the event and coupon end tomorrow on 2/19! What will you buy with your coupon?

TMR Frugal Living Tip #91

oxycleanToday’s thrifty living tip is to use OxiClean to get out old stubborn stains. I used to sell clothes that I would buy and resell on Ebay. I came across clothes that would have set-in stains which is hard to get out. I would make a paste of OxiClean with a little water in a plastic bowl and just spread a little onto the stain. I used this on colored clothes, and it never left bleach stains. I used the regular OxiClean since the color safe version didn’t exist. I would let it sit for 30 minutes and just throw it in the washer. It always got out the stains.

I also used another trick for whites and light pastel colors. I would boil water and pour into one of those plastic tubs (the free ones from the hospital), and dissolve 1 tbs of OxiClean before adding the stained parts of the garments. I didn’t leave too long in this mixture, and usually let the garments soak for about 10-20 minutes. I made this batch when I had several garments, and the water stayed hot for a while. It was extremely rare for neither process to remove a stain.

I still like the other stain removers for new stains, but this Oxiclean method was the best I found for removing old or set-in stains. What is your method of removing old stains from clothing?

NMEDA: Learn More About Mobility Equipment

This post brought to you by NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love to drive as I have so much freedom to go anywhere I want. I cannot imagine not being able to drive. Unfortunately, there are many people who cannot drive due to a disability or age. No one wants to be dependent on anyone. I want to share with you a great non-profit organization called NMEDA which helps educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer.

This great organization does not sell anything, but just wants to educate people. NMEDA is the only organization to promote safe driving and equipment for disabled people. Mobility equipment can be very expensive, and you want to make sure you are dealing with a reputable company. Everyone’s situation is different so it is very important to visit a dealer to help with the process of finding a customized vehicle suited just for you. The best way to make sure you are not being scammed is to shop with a NMEDA approved dealer in your area.

The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality.

If you are interested in learning even more about mobility equipment, then please visit to use the dealer locator. Just type in your zip code to find the nearest qualified dealer near you. I was surprised to see about 4 dealers within 50 miles of my zip code. Leave me a comment with your closest qualified dealer.

My Thrifty Momma Ramblings Blog is Home!

I finally finished moving to WordPress late last night. I still had lots of tweaks to do to the theme before I posted this update. I apologize for not being around much this past week, but between moving the blog and school, I was overwhelmed. I still have a few minor tweaks I want to make to the blog, but this is pretty much it for now. The tweaks now might be some color changes to a few fonts. Later I do plan to add a header and background, but I am burnt for the moment.

What does everyone think of the new blog?

I really loved the fun and bright colors. The header and background are transparent so I need to tweak it later in photoshop. I am just not in the mood to mess with it anymore this weekend. I have a small holiday coming up so I will work on it then. I get three days off from school and looking forward to that small break.

I have a fun giveaway starting soon so keep checking back! The giveaway will give me a chance to show off the new blog.

Keep checking back for more exciting giveaways and other news. I am so excited about being on WordPress, and I have plans to make Thrifty Momma Ramblings more exciting for all my readers. I really missed posting this past week.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Triad Retail Media. All opinions are 100% mine.

I know I love coming home to a fresh smelling house. I also want my guests to feel welcome when they are in my home. I was excited to try the new Glade® Expressions™ Fragrance Mist & Oil Diffuser products.

I have tried the new Glade® Expressions™ fragrance mist and I find it so easy to use. The best part is you peel off the label which then becomes an attractive bottle that fits in with my decor. It does not scream to guests I am a fragrance can. The cans are refillable so you can change the scents out if you wish. - Glade Expressions Air Fresheners

I prefer to use oil diffusers in my bedroom so I just place it and I’m done. I have placed the new Glade® Expressions™ oil diffuser in Pineapple & Mangosteen which comes with a bamboo colored diffuser. It matches my decor perfectly. The diffuser has a no-spill design and does not need to be plugged in. It saves my outlets for items that I might need to have plugged in plus saves money on my electric bill. It easy to change by just changing out the oil bottle. The oil diffuser will last 30 days.

The available fragrances are Pineapple & Mangosteen, Cotton & Italian Mandarin (only available in Fragrance Mist form), Fuji Apple & Cardamom, and Spice Lavender & Juniper Berry.

So if you are ready to try the new Glade® Expressions™ products, then print out a $1.50 coupon which can be used at Walmart on the new Glade® Expressions™ fragrance mist to save even more money.

The best part is Glade’s® satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. Mail the original UPC and purchase receipt within 30 days (Click here to complete the form if unsatisfied). This is a great offer so you have nothing to lose by trying.

What fragrance or item will you try? I currently use the Cotton & Italian Mandarin fragrance mist in my bathroom and the Pineapple & Mangosteen oil diffuser in my bedroom.
