Pillsbury simply cookies

I am a member of Pssst. They sent me a coupon to try these new cookies for free. This is what the site says about them: Enjoy delicious ready-to-bake cookies made with simple, wholesome ingredients like flour, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla
0g trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial colors or flavors and no preservatives
Find chocolate chip and peanut butter simply…™ cookies in the refrigerated section of your grocery store

My opinion******** These cookies were great. The flavor, texture, everything. I would buy them again. One of the perks of being a member of Pssst is that I get coupons to email friends/family. I think the coupon is $1.25/1. If you are interested in getting this coupon, then leave me a comment with your email address.

I saw these on sale at Publix today for $2.50. So these would be $1.25 a pack. Send me your email so I can send you your coupon.

Show us your life- Wedding party/flowers/ceremony

I am participating in Kelly's Korners "show us your life". This week is Wedding party, flowers, and ceremony. I had four great friends in my wedding (6/20/09), but I would have had at least 3 more if my husband could have found more men. I am blessed with very close and cherished friends and I would have loved to have them all up there with me. I had the colors pool and latte. After I picked the colors one of my bridesmaids said she was in her sisters wedding with the same colors, we devised this crazy scheme not to buy any dresses and borrow the dresses from that wedding. We pulled it off. The 3 pool dresses were all borrowed. We had so much fun laughing as we tried to squeeze one of them in a know who you My daughter was the flower girl and her twin brother was the ring bearer.
My cake had the pool and latte accents also. I loved it.

Another great friend who used to work for a florist arranged my flowers for me. I am so blessed to have talented friends.
I bought my shoes when I bought my dress. All of the girls fell in love with them so they wanted them. When we went to get them they were on clearance for 1/2 off. That is the good news...the bad news was that they only had 2 of the girls we called every David's bridal in the US and finally found 2 pair. One pair from TX and one from Orlando, FL. We all laughed that it was a redneck wedding with borrowed dresses and cheap shoes, but I think it was perfect. And the most important thing is that I had my great friends by my side.

Kid's Home Depot workshop

This Saturday, Home Depot will be having a free kid's workshop from 9:00am - 12:00 noon for ages 5-12. They will be making a message center this week.

Target Toy update

If you need to buy toys for any children, grandchildren, friends children, etc.... you should get to Target. They are having their annual 75% off sale. One of the workers told me they are clearing the shelves for Christmas merchandise. Just walk up and down the aisle and look for the red stickers. We stocked up for birthdays and Christmas for our big family. They had games, dolls, legos, leapster and diji games,etc...hurry, I'm sure it won't last long.

After swimming lessons today we stopped by Target and I got my .22 cents/box poptarts.See this post to see how to get yours for .22 cents. They even had some with the free movie pass vouchers on them (good for any movie). You collect 5 vouchers and you get a free movie pass. That offer is good thru June 2010.
After I had already left Target, my friend Selina called and said she had found awesome toy clearance (75% off) at several of her Targets in MD. She said she's never seen so many toys marked down to 75% off. I may have to go back to Target later today. BTW, we miss you Selina!!!!!!!

We also were close to an AJ Wright store. I have never been into one of these stores. I liked it. The merchandise and prices reminded me of Ross. Abby got a queen size bed from Craigslist several weeks ago, but I had just put my king size sheets on her bed. Today we found Hannah Montanna sheets in Queen size at AJ Wright. They were $21. She was sooooo excited. I didn't know they made kid themed bedding in Queen size.
I also found this neat vase for $7.99. I loved the colors and the style. I bought it because I am gong to re-do my kitchen and I thought it would look nice in there.

Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

This weeks thrifty finds

I am participating in a blog hop about thrifty finds this week by the blog Southern Hospitality.
This is a Lampe Berger type burner that I got at Goodwill for $3.99 this week. I have a Lamp Berger burner that I got at the mall several years ago for $40, so I know this was a good deal. These make your house smell so good.
This is a monogrammed purse with my daughters name on it. I ordered similar ones for my bridesmaids last month and spent over $20 each so this was a good deal at $2.99 (Goodwill)
My last deal was these shelves/baskets. I got them for $1.99 each at Goodwill. I re-organized my office this week and these are just what I needed to stay organized. The bottom will be for mail. My kids check the mail and then lay it everywhere. Now they have a location to bring it to. The other two will be for all those school papers that get lost so quickly.

Finally another room finished

************* BEFORE******************
I know I accumulate way to much junk, papers, etc....

I got rid of a ton of garbage. My trash men will be talking about me...LOL

I added (or had my husband hang) these 3 baskets for mail and kids school paper. I also hung a dry erase board and a cork board. I'm getting so organized I won't know how to handle it.
