With a family of five, laundry piles up quickly around here. If I had time to do it all in one day, it would be 6 – 7 large loads of laundry. I try to break it up a little and wash clothes on one day and sheets and towels the next. My washing machine can wash a load of laundry in about 40 mins, but it takes forever to dry in my slow dryer. I need a new dryer, but until then […]

Tips 4 Tuesday – Why I Never Shopped at Walgreens. Until TODAY!

One thing you have to realize when you are first starting to coupon is you can’t always get all the deals all the time. There are just too many stores and the amount of gas you would use would offset the saving you were getting anyway. That is mainly why I never shopped at Walgreens. It was too far away for me to justify making a trip out that way to get just a few items each week. Even if it was FREE. Since most of the time the FREE item was gone off the shelf by the time I got there. So all I […]

Tips for Tuesday – Quick and Easy Breakfast

  Most of us are looking for a quick and easy way to start the day. Let’s face it if the morning starts off bad, the rest of the day goes with it. Breakfast can be one of those moments where you can save a little bit of time and money. Cereal coupons are not always easy to find or always a good buy. Most of the time cereal is packed full of sugar and carbohydrates and not the most nutritious way to send the kids off to school. They will be on a sugar high and it will be difficult for them to focus […]

Also, I am not filling up some land fill with emptied spray oil bottles. I use mine more than I used the spray can oil and I am using far less oil on my food. I […]

Tips for Tuesday – Black Friday

It is almost here, Black Friday. I really like finding out the history of things. Most people don’t know why it’s called Black Friday. This is the day of the year most retailers go from operating “in the red” (a deficit) to operating “in the black” (making a profit). Thus Black Friday. This is a big day for retailers, and I think it should remain to just Friday. Let the employees enjoy their thanksgiving with their families and not be so greedy to make them work on thanksgiving. Ok that is my two cents. If you agree please do not shop on Thursday. Here are […]
