My New Shoes

I wanted to share my great deal! Look at my cute shoes! I got them for $9.90!! (no tax, no shipping) A friend at work twittered last week about some new shoes she got. I thought they were so cute I immediately ordered my self a pair. I got them today and LOVE them!! I immediately opened them and put them on like I did when I was little in the shoe store. They are so cute and way comfortable! The best part is they are make out of natural materials and recycled items. Mine or made out of hemp and the soles are made from recycled tires. I can't tell you how much I love them. I am thinking about ordering some more in the other colors and they also have flip-flops that I am going to order.

They are from Simple Shoes. This company makes all their shoes from sustainable and recycled products. They have the cutest stuff for every member of the family.

Go check them out! They will make great Christmas presents!
(They did not ask me to review them. This is my own love I am sharin'!!)

We Remember

Take some time today and remember those who died and pray for the families who were affected by the tragic loss. I remember that day so well. I just could not believe what I was seeing on the news. The days and months that passed changed our lives forever. Our country has overcome so much in the 8 years that have gone by.

Please pray for all the soldiers overseas fighting for our freedom and keeping this from happeing again.

Coupon Inserts

Sharpen those scissors! There will be 5, (yes I said 5), inserts this weekend! I love it when they make up for no inserts the week before. There will be 3 Smart Source, and 2 Red Plum inserts. Now remember, not all regions will get the same inserts and may not have the same coupons but we should get lots to add to our binders!!

I can't wait to get my paper this weekend. This would also be a great weekend to buy an extra paper.

I only paid $.40 for this.

I wanted to tell you guys about my amazing deal at Homeland. I am so excited.
We are having lots of family over this weekend for Labor Day. Travis decided to smoke a pork shoulder and make pulled pork sandwiches. I made my list, gathered all my coupons and off I went. Because of the coupons I had, I knew if all went well, I should get a really good deal.
Here is how it all went down.

4 lb pork shoulder(I wanted a bigger one but this was the last one) $8.40
used $6 off The Other White Meat when you buy 13.5 lb Kingford charcoal and one of the following products. (Don't remember what they all were) KC masterpiece barbeque sauce was one of them. = $2.40 (Wait, there's more, keep reading)

Kingford matchligh charcoal $9.99
used $2 off Kingsford charcoal = $7.99

used Get a Free KC Masterpiece when you buy 13.5 lb Kingsford charcoal

2 packages Kraft sliced cheese $1.59 each= $3.18
$1.00/2 Kraft sliced cheese (coupon doubles)= $1.18 or $.59/each

A-1 Steak sauce 2/$5.00
used $2 off A-1 steak sauce= $.50

used $2 off Fresh Meat when you buy any 3 Kraft items (Kraft sliced cheese and A-1 steak sauce where on the coupon.)

Remember the pork shoulder I got for $2.40? They took the $2 off Fresh Meat coupon off my pork shoulder so now, the pork only cost me $.40!!!! Wow!! I can't believe I just got a 4 lb pork shoulder for $.40!

I also got FREE chinet plates after coupons

I bought 2 cans of baked beans the other day for $.99 each =$1.98

Today is my Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to me!!! Today I turn 39!! I have felt so loved today. I have gotten so many birthday wishes from people here at work and all my facebook friends! Thanks for making my day so special!! My team took me to lunch and I received the roses from my dear friend (we are like sisters) Cindy. She arranged them herself. Isn't she talented? My twin sister, (some of you guys did not know that, did you?) also sent me flowers. I am blessed to have a womb mate to share this day with. Love you Donna! (sorry, I did not send you flowers)

I feel so blessed to have great friends and family who care about me. I feel very loved!! Tonight Travis and the girls are making me dinner and I may go to Hobby Lobby to spend some of the gift card they gave me this morning. He knows how much I love that place.

Thanks to all of you who have wished me a Happy Birthday. It is truly happy because of all of you!!

What I did this weekend!!

I have been wanting to glaze my cabinets for a while and finally did it.

They started out as oak cabinets and looked like this.

A friend from work did her cabinets and they look amazing so I asked her to come show me how to do them. She met me at Home Depot Friday night and showed me what to get and then came over Saturday and showed me how to do it. Thanks Erica!! It was so easy!! I love the way they turned out. Even my 7 year old told me they looked like we bought them! I took that as a great compliment. She is in the picture helping to put the knobs back on.

It was not that hard, and only cost $39! It took just a little time and I have a brand new kitchen.

Tell me what you think!
