I purchased these from Walgreens on sale with a coupon and find that they are easier to install than Sally Hansen. Quick and easy makes it #1 in my book.
My sons are too old for us to dye eggs for Easter, but I’m not too old to tie dye t-shirts. Thinking ahead and looking forward to the heat of the summer I decided to tie dye 2 cotton t-shirts that I will wear with my shorts.
Package of Tulip Fabric Dye, $2.37 at Walmart; 1/4 cup of salt; wooden stick, aluminum pan and a gallon of boiled water.
I followed the directions on the package, however, I did not stir it for an hour, I just made sure the shirt was total submerged and then let it sit for an hour.
I wrapped rubber bands around for the other shirt and placed it in the pan for only 30 mins.
I rinsed both shirts in cool to warm water, dunking them both until the water was mostly clear
Using a free sample of Shout Color Catcher I washed them on a quick cycle in cold water
Free sample of Shout Color Catcher included a coupon for .55 off
Ready to Wear
Today I was going through my closet finding items to donate and I came across these 3 Gucci purses which were thrifted from Goodwill in 1991. My sister, Gloria worked at Goodwill in Dover for a year before her death in 1992. She and I loved shopping there even before it became popular. Leather coats, hats, boots and these purses are among some of the items that I still have to this day.
Spring Break is right around the corner and my family and I are anxious to get outdoors to start our annual Spring Projects. I had a 10% off total purchase coupon, so hubby, my #2 son and I headed to The Home Depot for their “Black Friday” sale.
These indoor plants are so colorful!
Deck chairs, fire pits and heaters
Bounty Paper Towels, 6 Rolls – $4.88
For each bag of Scott’s Turf Builder you get a free gallon of Ortho Weed-B-Gon
Limit 2 and our savings was $25.48
My project will be to stain the deck, and we found this new product called Restore on sale for $39, marked down from $49. Based on the measurements of our deck it was cheaper to get the 5 gallon bucket for $78.00.
#2 son was our designated driver both to Home Depot as well as loading and navigating the cart inside.
Before we checked out, my radar picked up on a small clearance section where I got 48 oz bottle of Pine Sol for $2.00
Can you smell the Bar-B-Que?
Need to stay cool during the heat of the summer?
