I'm still alive!

 So I have been MIA for a long time! Sorry kids! Life has been fraught with medical drama lately! I just had surgery this last Friday on my left knee and will be having another procedure done on my right wrist next Friday! Things are crazy hectic here and I haven't done any shopping in quite some time! 
 I did today get to go to Walmart. My sister was kind enough to cart the kids and I over there. Which inspires me to share a money saving idea!
 So my daughter dropped my cell phone on the cement and it killed the screen. Rather than buying an expensive fancy phone from my T-Mobile dealer, I opted instead for a pre-paid T-Mobile phone at Walmart. They work the same as contract phones are of equal quality. You just need to slide your current sim card in and you're good to go! It is SOOO much cheaper! Especially is you're in the middle of your contract and nowhere near qualifying for a new free phone from your provider. 
 I don't know how well this works with other providers, but for T-Mobile customers, it's a golden opportunity! Yay to be back to a Nokia! My personal favorite brand of cell phone!
 Plus, it came with a prepaid minutes card which I will now auction off on ebay! Bonus!!!

Saving time and money

Today I cooked up a huge pack of hamburger, portioned and froze it. I find this to be an amazingly convenient time and money saver.
Usually it's cheaper to buy ground beef in bulk, but if you can't use it before it expires, that makes it a bad deal. So cook and freeze it and you have the added bonus of having meat ready for your dinners that next few weeks. Just get it out to thaw in the morning.
I love things that make life easier!

Kmart Clearance!

I was at Kmart the other day to pick up Rx's. On the way to change my son's diaper, I passed several racks of strategically placed clearance clothing. Yes, I ended up with 3 new shirts for myself. :)
There were amazing deals on t-shirts, tank tops and other summer apparel. Lots of swimsuits and trunks. 
If you can reasonably guess next year's sizes, it's worth a visit.
Plus, a lot of the summer tops can totally be used in the fall and even winter by adding a simple cardigan or wearing a long sleeve tee underneath. :)
