Our Christmas Tree & Food Storage


We got our tree delivered last night from Prepaid Christmas Trees!  It smells amazing!!  We're in the process of finding where I stashed the ornaments last year......so aggravating..


I have had a good day though,  I went to Emergency Essentials and bought 3 cans of food storage!  With my $20 in gift cards I spent $6!  See how you can get $20 too.


I also bought the Daily Deal!  72-Hour Food Storage from Wise Foods for $29!  It includes 2 Lasagna, 4 Chicken Ala King, 2 Creamy Chicken Pasta, and 4 Stroganoff (which I have never successfully made.  Mine always tastes like feet)
This all has a 25 year shelf life!!  We're really trying to build up our food storage on the cheap.  Can you tell? :)

That is a gorgeous tree. How do you keep it fresh and from dropping needles when it's this early? We always wait to cut ours until 2 weeks before Christmas because they always die if we don't. Where is the prepaid tree program through?

My husband assures me that a freshly cut tree will stay nice if you keep the water in the reservoir filled. We will see :) I got this for $35 through Groupon. One of the deciding factors was the free delivery :) Here's there website: http://efament.com/2101.html

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
