Walmart Shopping 1/27

I made a quick stop by Walmart today because I forgot the "Brown" (chocolate) ice cream and little dude sure let me know about it! There were also a few other items I wanted.

Velveeta Cheesy Casseroles $1.98...Used $1 peelie off package
Liquid Gold Wood Cleaner $4.97 (my table, chairs, and cabinets are need help from the kiddos)
Ice Cream Cups $3.88
Breadsticks $2.98
Campbells Kettle Style Soup $2.98 (my dinner everyone else is having chili tonight)
Spent $15.79

On a side note why is it Walmart insists upon putting every item in a seperate bag? I could see putting these 5 items in 2 bags maybe 3 but I seriously had 5 bags for 5 items! What a waste!

Real Life Huge Announcement

So since not all of my readers are on my personal facebook (although you are more than welcome to friend me!) my husband and I have a huge announcement..................


Ok so while we are not expecting a biological baby we are becoming foster parents and believe me other than labor becoming a foster mom is just as exciting and requires more preparation. We have long lists of everything we have to do: classes, agency inspections, state inspections, medical exams, fingerprinting, etc, etc etc. That doesn't include cleaning, organizing, and babyproofing before the inspections.

It may seem like a lot of work but to us it is so worth it! After 7 years of infertility and a failed private adoption in 2012 this will be a piece of cake! If anyone has questions or wants to know more just ask. I plan to be very open about the victories and the struggles this brings to us because when I was looking I couldn't find anyone giving thier true honest opinions.

Like Free Gift Cards?

Do you like free gift cards? Well I do and that's why I use Swagbucks. While there are many things on the Swagbucks site that I don't use there are 5 main things I do and they result in at least $10 worth of Amazon Gift Cards for me every month.

#1.) Toolbar....I installed the Swagbucks toolbar and use it for all my searches. I also get 1 SB (Swagbuck) everyday just for having it on there when I get online. I should also say that it is completely safe to download the toolbar. Being married to a computer guy I have the mega security and it passes it easily!

#2.) Daily Poll...They have a poll on the site everyday. 3 quick seconds to answer 1 random question and I have another 1SB

#3.) NOSO (no obligation special offers)...you just keep clicking "skip" until you reach the final screen (usually 4 or 5 screens). Takes about 15 seconds and gets you 2SB.

#4 Searches...The toolbar I mentioned above has a search section and I use it to get to everything even things I know the address to. Going to Facebook? I search facebook every time. While not every search will result in SB they will randomly pop up and you can easily get 200+ SB in a month.

#5 Coupons...This is my favorite! On the Swagbucks main page under earn there is a coupon page with the same coupons as Coupons.com and you get 10SB for every one you print & redeem. If you use a lot of printable coupons this can really add up!

Misc...There are also miscellaneous things you can do for SB like watching short youtube like videos (3SB for every 10 watched), Swag codes (random codes that SB puts out that you put in the code box on thier homepage), surveys, shopping through thier links, etc.

So what kind of gift cards can you get? Check out this page but by far the most popular is the $5 Amazon for 450SB.

Interested? Well click on this  link sign up and give it a try!

Shopping photos to come

I did make a couple stops today but, I decided to wait and post one big shopping summary when I get it all done this weekend. If all goes well my "I'm not doing much shopping in January" plan will out the window. I figure 54 cent Finish Powerball, Money maker hair elastics and free snack foods are good enough reasons to shop :)

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

I was recently given a chance to try Neutogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream for free from Bzzagent.  I have lots of issues with my elbows being so dry they are not only rough they constantly look dirty so I agreed to give this a try. I was pleasantly surprised with this lotion. It is super thick (almost Vaseline consistency) so you really only need a dab. Don't worry though it rubs in much quicker and smoother than Vaseline. My large size was Fragrance Free but I also tried one of the Original Scent samples and they scent is very subtle. Working in the medical field I have to wash my hands and/or use alcohol based sanitizers multiple, multiple times a day which would dry out anyone's hands. This hand cream worked excellent for that without leaving a smell that could upset some patients sensory issues. Overall another great product for the Neutrogena brand.

I was given a free sample to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.

Goodwill 1/5/13

So I made a stop by our local Goodwill today for the monthly Half Off Saturday. Our Goodwill offers 50% off everything in the store the first Saturday of every month. The key is you have to get there pretty much just as they open. Today I bought the following:

*Unicorn Stompeez: $1 (YES! I was so excited for these after watching crazy people pay $20+ at Christmas)
*Navy Blue & Khaki Men's Dockers Pants: $2.15 each (Brian needed these since they changed the uniform policy where he works boo!)
*Red Scrub Top: $2
*Black & Fushia Scrub Jacket: $2 each
*Women's Nike Shoes: $2.25 (Those dudes look like they have only been worn once or twice!)
*Girls Carter's Brown Mary Janes: $1.50

These were well worth the $15.05 spent seeing as 1 pair of Men's Dockers are $30-$45 brand new. those exact Nikes are selling for $50-$75 on Ebay, Stompeez are $20, and Carters Shoes sell for approx $30 on thier website (I just looked them all up!)

I am also going to be working on organizing the house this month which REALLY needs done :/ I am planning to get the stockpile organized too and then maybe just maybe I will take a little video and post for you guys :)

I am very excited for 2013 and what it holds both in my personal life and for this blog!
