Ever have to put your child on "phone restriction"?

Ever have to to it this young?


So yesterday was the grand opening of the local hhgregg store.  Ribbon cutting was at 2:45, opening was 3PM.

This was just after 2:30.

Since Lydia broke my digital camera,  I was there to snag this:
It was $29.99!!!  What a deal! They also had a drawing for some Frigidaire appliances (grand prize) and a Magellan GPS (first prize) will be drawn next week, but also had an instant prize.  Several people in front of me got $25 hhgregg gift cards, stainless steel water bottles - I got a set of pink ear buds (hey, they were free) and they gave Lydia a stuffed Serta sheep. 

I bought it and went to CVS to get Cokes for 5 12 packs for $15 with $5 ECB in return which I put toward a 10 pack of Duracell AAA batteries for $5.99.  (for my new digital camera)

Came home and popped some batteries into my new too good to be true digital camera - who reads instructions? - and went to town testing it out. No flash.  ugh!  How do you capture the moments in the life of a 2 year old with no flash?  So I'm going to bring the camera back today.

Matt and Jeani came over for Pizza and fellowship last night.

I also plan to go to Publix with my coupon for up to $3.99 off NY Style snack food (bagel chips perhaps?)  mmm.  Maybe I'll stop at Starbucks too since I got my giftcard from mypoints the other day. 

Surprise party to attend tonight, does anyone have a great Chuck Norris joke?  We're supposed to bring one with the youth pastor substituted for Chuck. 

Have a great day everyone!  Looking forward to more goodies today!  lol

I had a coworker who used to call me popcorn because I would make some in the microwave at breakfast time.  haha\

I had seen yesterday in the Save A Lot ad that Act II Microwave popcorn was on sale for $.79 cents a box.  That didn't set off anything particular.  This afternoon as I was preparing Lydia's lunch, I came across a coupon for $1.00 off 2 boxes of Act II.  So, I got 2 boxes at $.29 cents each.

On the way out we stopped to check the mail and I had 4 coupons for a Free SoBe.  CVS has the SoBe Life Water on sale for $1 each (also good towards the Pepsi deal - buy $20 worth of Pepsi products get $10 ECB)  And I had 4 more Orbit coupons, so I got 8 packs of gum, and 4 SoBe's for $.69 and I got $1 ECB since I used my Green Bag Tag.  Whee!

It still isn't too late to get in on the Living Social Deal $10 for a $20 Amazon GC, and if you have one of the Amazon Diaper coupons from American Baby Magazine, and Join Amazon Mom as well as Subscribe and Save you can get a BIG case of diapers (156 size 5) for the investment of $10.

We also fit 2 meals - 4 readings of "I Love You Stinky Face", 2 loads of laundry, some dishes, a shower, a nap  (For Lydia), Vaccuuming, Made the Bed, Got a $5 Starbucks Gift Card for my secret prayer pal and Skyped with Gramps!

Church tonight!


To Living Social Todays SIZZLING HOT DEAL is a $20 Gift Card for $10!  Think of the possibilities!

Todays Goodies

I got 40 Swag Bucks today without trying.  I got my daily toolbar buck, Daily NOSO buck, Daily Polls buck and Trusted Surveys buck.  I got the code that was released worth 8 Swag Bucks and just by using Swag Bucks instead of Google I earned Swag Bucks 3 times while searching.  I got 2 10's and an 8.  If I wanted to, I could have earned 75 Swag Bucks by watching videos on SBTV, but I didn't have the time today.  A $5 Amazon Gift Card "costs" 450 Swag Bucks so at that rate I could get one every 12 days - but I generally earn them a bit quicker, even with only one referral.  Would you like to sign up to earn free stuff?  I'll answer any questions I can.  PLEASE, SIGN UP HERE!

Playing Wendy's Fry For All I won a $5 Wendy's Gift Card.

In the Mail I received the $5 Starbucks gift card that I bought for $1 through Family Finds go ahead and sign up there.  It is a lot like Groupon and Deal Pulp. 

I also received 3 Box Tops For Education that I won on Listia.

Last week someone on FB posted a link for B1G1 Orbit Gum coupons.  CVS has them B1G1.  It was a Bricks coupon, so you could print it twice.  I also had 2 coupons for 50 cents off a single Dove Chocolate and a $1 ECB.  I was also desperately in NEED of a Diet Sunkist.  haha.  So, I got 4 packs of Gum, 2 Dove Bars and a 20 oz Soda for $1.57.  Not too bad. 

What was your day like today?

Late Celebration

Hubby's paycheck didn't come through until Saturday AM, and we went Street Preaching on Sat.  Then Church all day Sunday, so TONIGHT we are taking our 2 year old to pick out a baby doll.  We will also pick up a cake and go out to dinner.

Got my $10 from CVS for completing the survey.  I already have $10 ECB, and I have a $4 off $20 coupon.  I ALSO have a coupon for a free razor which is a $10.xx value, so I may use that and save one of the $10 ECB's.

Lydia's 2 year check up went great.  I was a little leery of the new pedi at first (hers got married and moved to Mississippi).  But he was very thorough and asked questions and listened.  I think it'll be fine.

I got a heads up that Publix had Special K B1G1 and I had B1G1 coupons.  In a PERFECT world, they would have given me 8 boxes for free with my 4 coupons.  However it didn't work that way.  Sigh.  But I DID get 8 boxes of Special K and 2 boxes of Swiss Miss Cocoa (which was $1.99 each and I had 2 $2 coupons) and a small pack of Ritz Bits from the Checkout for Lydia for a grand total of $8.66.

Then we went to CVS with my 5 Free SoBe coupons and I heard that the Scanner was shooting out coupons for $.50 off of a Dove Bar which was on Sale for $.89 and $.89 cents ECB back. 

I got 5 SoBe Lifewaters, 2 Milk Chocolate Dove Bars and a small bag of Gummy Lifesavers.  I had a $1 ECB from using my reusable bag with green bag tag.  After the coupons I paid $1.18, and got $.89 back.  I also used my reusable bag and green bag tag (every 4 scans, you get $1 back - only can use once a day).

Then when I came home I had an email from CVS Advisor for a survey that they are going to reward me with $10 ECB!  THEN when Fred got home with the mail I had another Gerber Formula Check for $5.25 and a Free issue of Woman's Day Magazine!

Pretty Awesome Mail Day Yesterday

  • the $25 AmEx Gift Card I won from Twitter (sending it to my Mom as a late Christmas gift)
