Recent Purchases

Here's what I've been up to with shopping lately. I will hopefully be going again today to catch a few deals, but only if the weather calms down!

Last week I hit the Dollar Store. Don't underestimate your local dollar store. They have all kinds of goodies just waiting to be found!
Batteries, peanuts, granola bars, pistachios, and more! All $1 each!

We also hit the Wonder bread store as I have not been up to baking my own bread lately.
Each loaf was .99.

Finally, I hit Macey's on Saturday, feeling yucky sick. Macey's has been doing lots of one day only sales lately and last week I missed out on the .99 orange juice because I couldn't force myself to get over there. Now, with all my family suffering nasty colds, I am wishing I had made that sale!
There was no way I was missing the deal on tortillas and bacon this time!
Don Julio Flour Tortillas .88
Big Buy Bacon  $1.78

I'll be back later with hopefully a great haul this afternoon!

The fall of the crock pot

Despite all of my efforts to save us money, every now and then, someone else's good intention throws a wrench into the works. My loving husband has been letting me sleep in all week and while I rest, he has been Mr. Clean. I can't even list all the work he has done that would usually fall on my shoulders. (I'm on restrictions till the end of this pregnancy)
So please don't think me ungrateful!!! But sadly, this morning he killed one of my best friends in an effort to help.
I'm not going to totally embarrass him by explaining how it happened... okay, yes I am! It's a funny story! :)
There was burnt on food and he decided to clean it the way he would a pot. He filled the porcelain liner with water and set it to boil on the stove... Several minutes later..... KABOOM!!! Poor guy had quite a mess to clean up. I slept through it all. Now, I will be arranging a small memorial service for my friend the crock pot, remembering all the meals we shared, the many times it saved the day for me. The crock pot and my rice cooker.. at least I still have the rice cooker. :)
RIP Crock Pot

Thrift Store Finds and such

 We went to Deseret Industries the other day and found two nice helmets and a small boys scooter in really great shape, all $4 each.

I just love saving money!
I love FREE even more! The other week I hit the recycling bins at the city building and found this lovely purple wicker basket.
It works perfectly in my lilac bathroom as a magazine holder! The things people throw out! Seriously!! ;)
