|Cute Kate Spade purse.|
Late again in posting this. We had a busy but fun weekend and since I usually try to get this posted Saturday mornings...it just did not happen. Onto the savings...
|Three of the movies that we found at the new to us thrift store. Not showing the brand new in wrapper ones that will be gifts just in case the recipient sees this. ;)|
~On Saturday Jeff and I discovered a new thrift store and found some great deals there. We picked up 2 English mugs, a Kenneth Cole Reaction shirt, a toy for Steven, and 6 dvds (3 of them were brand new in wrapper and will be Christmas gifts for family).
~We also went to Goodwill and found a really neat building set for the little boys, and a brand new North Face jacket for Jeff that was only $14.99. I looked it up and it retailed for $190. We also found a pair of pants for me, a brand new blanket, a new in package queen sized sheet set for $5.99, some Christmas ornaments, a 3 hole punch and a bowling ball.

~Jeff and I watched the movie "Going in Style" that we borrowed from the library. It was really good!
~Jeff reorganized the 2 big freezers so that it would easier for me to find what I needed.
~Monday we had to make another run into town to pick up a few things that we had forgotten the day before. Jeff had mentioned that we needed mats or rugs by the front and back doors now that the weather is changing and we would be tracking in mud, water and snow. I was able to find 2 mats at the Dollar Tree. I figured at $1 each, I could afford to replace them as they got really dirty or destroyed by the cats.

~We also stopped by my favorite thrift store so that I could look for boots for Bradley. I found some there for him and also found some other amazing deals. There was a pine garland that lit up, needed that to replace the one that Doofy ate ($2.99), a cute Kate Spade purse ($2.99), a Vera Bradley wristlet that was brand new (.49), some cds that Jeff wanted ($1.50 each), a squeegee, a toy for Steven (.99), a purse organizer (.99) and a few other things.
~We did go out to lunch at a place that makes huge calzones. I brought home half of mine for another meal.
~We found a cute little Vtech brand plane for Steven for Christmas at Walmart.
|With all the rich foods I have been eating lately, I needed a salad one night.|
~Tuesday I made 2 more loaves of bread for sandwiches for the week for my hubby to take to work with him and for his toast.
~I hot tubbed on Tuesday night to help ease my sore muscles.
~I continue to do more research on CFS and Fibromyalgia and how to manage these diseases.
~Our son Jaysn turned us onto the fact that the Red Green show is on YouTube. I am so excited because Jeff and I love this show and do not get it on our PBS channels anymore.
~Our library has some new books and dvds that looked interesting, so I put in requests for them.
|CD my hubby found for me. I love my Hawaiian music.|
~Wednesday I found 2 rotisserie chickens marked down at half price in the deli section at Walmart. I bought one for us and one for Jaysn and Rachel. Rachel has been sick with a cold and this will make dinner easy for her and she can use the rest of the chicken to make some nice homemade chicken noodle soup.
~Wednesday I took care of Steven in the afternoon and evening while Jaysn, Rachel and my Jeff went out car shopping. Jaysn's car died and he wanted his dad's help in finding a good used car that would work well for their family. Jeff was able to steer them away from bad cars and they found one that needed a few repairs (which the dealership is doing for free when Rachel told them that they would be sticking to their budget, paying in cash and would just walk away from getting the car if the repairs were not taken care of at the dealership's cost.)
~Thursday was a bad crash day for me so I did nothing.
~Friday I struggled but finally got the Garlic Sesame breadsticks done for the family Ladies Brunch on Saturday.
It seems like I have been hit by the SPAM monster again in some of the replies to my posts. I do want to apologize for that and I am deleting them as I find them. Be blessed all!
