Are you planning to use glass mosaics, stone mosaics or glass and marble tile on your next remodel? Many people are using them for bathrooms, floors, kitchen backsplashes, and even swimming pools. You need to check out the Glass Tile Store for the best selection and prices available. They offer these tiles below wholesale, and they can ship to all states. You can also buy a sample to see how it will look in your home. They ship the sample for free. If you are looking for a bigger discount, then check out their closeout area. You can’t go wrong when shopping here.
I must say that I love doing the Rite-Aid rebates. My only real disappointment is that my store rarely has the advertised items in stock so I can’t always get the free items. I did get my check for July today and I requested it the last week of July. It was shipped on the 4th of this month so that is very fast processing. I wished Walgreens would implement an online rebate redemption system like RA. My check was for $29.32! I spent $32.xx this past week on the great FAR items. I have $27.95 pending already for the month. I saved an extra $12 in coupons. I got a free can of Old Spice shaving cream since the razors had a peelie. That was a nice freebie I wasn’t expecting.
Thanks to 1stopmom for letting me know that I can now enter my receipts online to Walgreens. I knew there were testing this, in select areas, but no clue it was open for everyone. I was able to put in one yesterday and saved it. I will report back when I’m ready to fully submit it. Thanks again my readers. You guys rock!
My son went back to school last week. I had to buy the usual school supplies and school uniforms. That also meant I had to had to label them. I really wished I had a DYMO Labelmaker. I had so much trouble writing his name in small letters using a marker. The scissors were the hardest one to label. The writing could smear if not careful. Having a label maker could have saved me so much time and frustration. These labels look so much nicer plus no smearing.
I could even use this handy little label maker around my house. I hate having items in plastic containers, and I don’t always remember what I have stored inside. I don’t want to write on them so this label maker would be the perfect solution. I would also love to use this for organizing my pictures. The boxes are fabric so I can’t write on the outside. I can also use this to keep my files more organized. I would really love to color code it all with medical documents, tax information, and old bills. I can really see this great machine being used for all sorts of organization around the house. This will allow me to have more time to spend with my family.
I know you are wondering what I’m talking about. Ok so some of you probably already know, but I didn’t until today. I saw a lot of those on people’s blogs so I was always very curious.

I wanted to post that I am now a U Comment I Follow blog, and I also changed my 3 other blogs so comment away readers!

Today’s thrifty tip is sprinkle baking soda on your carpets, let sit for 15-20 minutes and then vacuum. It’s cheaper than the stuff in the store and not toxic. It deordorizes the carpet.
I just can’t say enough great things about the ZenniOptical.com website. I’m not the only that has taken notice of this site. Clark Howard has also given this site wonderful praises. I first posted about them when I bought my husband two pairs of Memory Titanium frames, with the Anti-Reflective Coating, for $68.xx with shipping. It took about two weeks to receive them. The eyeglasses come with a great microfiber cleaning cloth. I have been hooked since then.
They have so many styles of frames available, and you can even buy sunglasses. You can’t beat the low prices starting at $8 a pair. You can select from many lens. They have single vision lens, bifocals, progressive lens and much more. The Memory frames we bought are great quality. These were a fraction of the retail price.
The reason Zenni can offer such low prices is that they sell their own manufactured lens which cuts out the middleman. This passes the savings onto their customers. I really appreciate the savings with the high cost of gas and food. I didn’t have to sacrifice on quality. I know many people who could benefit from this great website just as we did. I would definitely check out this website before ordering your next pair of eyeglasses or even sunglasses.
Today’s thrifty tip is to clean a microwave using vinegar. I pour half water and vinegar in a bowl which I then put inside the microwave. Turn it on long enough to bring to a boil. I usually do 2-3 minutes. It depends on how high and your microwave. The steam loosens food particles and deordorizes. This will be hot so be careful and just wipe clean. I do use the same mixture in the bowl. Then I pour the rest down the drain with the baking soda method I posted before.
