sheeeeeeeesh....


So I told my husband to get some toilet paper because we were OUT and he brings home Quilted Northern, 4 rolls and spent $4.26!  WHAT!  In my pre-coupon days...nothing, today...it hurts a little. :)


Mainly because it wasn't that long ago I got all of the above for $2.64!  They won't all be glorious receipts. :)  Especially with my lack of planning lately.  P.S. we are currently using that Old Spice Body Wash as hand soap!  I smell goooooood....
well....my hands do.  HA!

That Charmin is on sale at Smiths for $2.99 with the e coupon. If it were me I would take it back (unless you needed to use it right away :)
Ack!!! yep...it hurts my soul. :)
And it's already halfway gone..lol
Hah! I know what you mean...this happens here too, but I guess we should be thankful that they are helping us out and doing what we asked! :)

This gave me a little chuckle this morning!

Back last week when CVS had the Charmin Basic 12 double for 3.99 with 1.00 bucks back (you could only use "one" special on your CVS card), I got my one deal,plus used 1.00 mfc = 1.99! Then figuring it out, I had LOTS more coupons..so I got two more packages @ 3.99 used 1.00 off each and so I got 24 double rolls for about $5.98!!
$5.98! That's Awesome!! I wish we had a CVS.
Glad to hear I'm not the only couponing queen who runs out of basic necessities like toilet paper!
Ya I wish it didn't happen as often as it does. lol

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…
