Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

You know that during the week I don’t get home until after 6:00 p.m. so I’m always on the look out for ingredients to make dinner an easy-breezy meal.  I shop on Sunday’s for fresh meats and veggies and using coupons I’ll purchase pantry items such as Kraft Fresh Take Cheese & Breadcrumb Mix.  We don’t eat a lot of red meat and chicken and turkey can easily become boring so it helps to have something like this at the ready that is quick, easy and good.

The Sugar n Spice Voxbox that I received from Influenster contained a box of Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes. These towelettes are suppose to lift dirt and remove impurities from the skin without irritation.  They contain 3 simple ingredients, Witch Hazel, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice and Sodium Benzoate which makes them oil free, non-drying and can be used on all skin types.

I’ve never had problem skin and only use makeup removal cloths so I asked my oldest son to test them as he suffers from occasional breakouts and teenage acne.  Unlike my youngest, he is not particular with his grooming products so he agreed to help with the review.  He used one towelette each morning for a week and this was his report:

Likes:

  • didn’t irritate or sting his face
  • didn’t make his face dry
  • noticed his face was clearing
  • great size to use on face and neck
  • packaged great for travel

Dislikes:

  • the smell, it didn’t stink but didn’t smell that great either -(Witch Hazel has always had a distinct odor)

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday!

Recently, I read an article that had suggestions on the products that you should and should not buy at your local Dollar Stores.  I agreed that buying party supplies and paper products was a good idea and with not buying toys which may contain high levels of lead.  Purchasing cleaning supplies saves money, but I only buy name brands because some of the others are watered down which makes them a waste of money.

The only statement in the article that I did not agree with was that food items should never be purchased.  Granted there are some items in a Dollar/99 Cents store that shouldn’t be purchased because of it’s obvious non-compliance with FDA’s regulations, however, there are a lot of products that I would and have bought at Dollar Tree stores.

The state of the economy has forced us all to be more frugal but my sons are trying to eat me out of house and home!  They are always snacking and can easily polish off a large bag of chips in one sitting…wonder where they got that from (lol).  Therefore, I am always on the hunt, usually with coupons in hand, in search of snacks that they will eat and be satisfied without breaking the bank.

That’s where Dollar Tree comes in, and it has always been my “go to” store for snacks, even when the boys were small, it was the place to stop before going to the movies.   Not all products are sold in all stores and I was surprised with what I found in their freezer section, taking note that packaging was clearly marked Made in the USA, (The Bronx, NY, Altoona, PA, Pennsauken, NJ and Rancho Cucamonga, CA).   There are many name brand products made specifically for non-grocery type stores as evidenced by their sizes, however, the quality remains the same and manufacturer’s coupons are accepted.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

There are only a few traces of yesterday’s snow and according to the meteorologist, Mother Nature will be having a hot flash so all that remains will be melted by Friday.  It’s tough for people not to accept the existence of Global Warming especially with all of these varying weather conditions around the world.  Al Gore has been speaking out for years, now just maybe people will take him more seriously.  Okay, stepping down off the soap box.

Most of you know that I love…love…love…shoes and will be the first to admit that I have too many, but it’s not something new, I have been a shoe lover since High School.  I’ve always had to have the latest styles in different colors…pastel pinks…mellow yellow…aqua marine blue….heels…flats…sandals…boots – I loved them all.  These days I don’t buy as many as I used to but when I find a bargain, I am on it like a heat seeking missile (remember the Target haul?)  Because I have so many I can’t remember ever wearing the same pair two days in a row that was until today, this is the first time.  There are two reasons for this, first I am still trying to get my closet in order and secondly, these Granny boots are comfortable and look cute with this outfit!

Good Sunday Morning my Friends – I hope this the first day of the week is going well for you.

Sundays are normally the days that I do my grocery shopping, and I don’t head out without first checking the paper for coupons and sales.  I was totally surprised when I saw this newly designed “Dollar Tree” insert, I had to do a double take and then asked hubby to look at it as well.

Is it true…is Dollar Tree no longer the place where “Everything Is A Dollar”? Is this why they started accepting manufacturer’s coupons? Is it in only certain areas?  Say it isn’t so…I will definitely be checking it out before I go grocery shopping.

Tuesday evening I went to Walgreens because of their advertised sale on Butterball Turkey Bacon, 6 oz for $1.29, which is much cheaper than the grocery stores.  My son usually eats 4 slices a day so this was definitely a money saver.

I first purchased a bottle of Revlon Nail Polish for $4.99 and received a $1.00 off with an in store coupon as well as a $3.00 off coupon for my next purchase .  Armed with that coupon and my coupon caddy I checked the end caps for clearance items.  There was Poise Cooling Gel and Poise Freshener, both marked down and with my coupons I paid .12 cents for each.   My purchased also included Holiday Liquid Hand Soaps, marked $1.99 each or 2/$3.00, but with Rewards paid $1.09 each; Sally Hansen Nail Polish, $1.49 and a pack of Liners for a total cost of $13.44.

 I am loving the Walgreens Rewards Program
