fridays.

i now know where i will be EVERY friday...BURKES.  They offer an extra 15% off every friday on top of their regular discounted items.  i've been going in lately to search for the 95% off items...yes, im that cheap.  they have new deals every week & new items marked down as well. check out this past fridays deal.

]
clearly not the best picture but it'll do.  my total for everything..including tax:  $3.04!!
3 junior shirts
2 pairs of boys sandals (i really dont like the 'looks' but for being so cheap the boys can wear them to the beach or pool).
3 pairs of sunglasses (i know, like i need more!)
1 garden statue

i mean seriously...you can't beat these prices!

sunglasses!


okay, first let me say....i am TERRIBLE with sunglasses.  I'm either losing, misplacing, or breaking them.  I seriously broke 2 pair last week.  I normally try and pay no MORE than $6 bucks on them because of my bad habits.  Well, last week I scored 6 pairs for a $1.73!!!  That includes TAX!  I'm so excited! I dont think I've ever bought that many sunglasses for that cheap!  SCORE!

95% OFF!

SCORE!!!
One of our local stores had 95% off their summer stuff! I got ALL this for under $12 bucks!! We have a little beach here (more like bay) and these floats are PERFECT!  I got a few slip-n-slides too....my kids love them.   As you can see I picked up doubles or even triples of some items but my older sister had a nice pool so i'm planning to send some of this home with her.  I wish they had more boogie boards...they were .75!  The original price was $14.99!  My boys will be all set for next summer :)

Puppies VS Babies!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puppies vs. Babies for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Calling all contest lovers!  Puppies vs. Babies online contest is now waiting for you to vote!  Yes, you read the title correctly!  Which are cuter....puppies or babies?  While I do ADORE cute little puppies....I'm a HUGE baby lover!  I seriously can take one look at a precious baby & get 'baby fever'.  I know for me, I loved when my boys were babies with those CUTE & FAT cheeks! I had some chunky little ones, which are the best ;)  I loved the little fat rolls in their arms & legs. It doesn't get much cuter than that!  Puppies vs. Babies has some cute photos & videos to look at!  I mean there are some PRECIOUS pictures!!!  

Now to all my lovely readers....which do you think is cuter and why?  I'm curious to see how the votes play out.  I would think babies would win!  I need to stop looking at some of the baby pictures because I can sense myself getting baby fever all over again.  Trust me,  my husband is not wanting to hear the word BABY in any shape, form or fashion.  He is happy with the two we got and NO more!  Oh, and we do have 4 cute dogs.  Yes, FOUR!  One dog per each member of the household, haha. Not sure how I managed to let that happen!

TracFone

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Calling all cell phone users! Are you looking for a low price phone for your self or maybe even your kids?  TracFone may be just what you need. With monthly plans as low as $9.99 and name brand cell phones (LG, Nokia, Samsung) starting at $10, this seems like a GREAT deal!  Tracfone has no credit checks, activations fees, or contracts. Check out this short clip real TracFone customers. You simply pay as you go!  You can also get these phones with cameras, internet access, and mp3 player for just $29.99!

Are you skeptical? Not sure if this deal is as good as it sounds.  Check out this video of real TracFone customers.  Now, my children are definitely not old enough for phones, but I think this would be a great deal for teenagers.  The amount of minutes you put on the phone is all they can use.  So there is no worrying  if the kids went over their minutes and just how much that will make your bill go up.

Do you have relatives that live out of the country? If so, TracFone is the only cellular service that provides international calling for the SAME price as regular calls! Get into Everywhereness!  That is a GREAT benefit!  So what are you waiting for? Go check out TracFone! They also have a Senior Value.

They have so many features! Check out the videos below for more information!

earthquake & hurricane!

so it seems like most of the east coast felt the 5.9 earthquake today.  im not sure how I didnt, but i am thankful for that.  i worry way to much as it is....and probably would've freaked out! not a good thing since my husband was at work while this happened. 

it seems this weekend we may be getting a hurricane :( boo hiss!  im not for this 'type' of weather.  corey was supposed to have his first football game but because of the upcoming weather, they canceled :/   
i hope we dont get any part of this hurricane!

counting down.

almost time for school!  we have 6 days!  im excited & nervous. the kids are going to a new school this year (the BEST one here) so im hoping they LOVE it.  i've heard nothing but good things about this school both from parents that have kids there & also read great reviews online too.  im nto worried about corey as he makes friends quick & is just mr. popular.  little eric is more like me (when i was younger)  quiet & shy. he normally doesnt open up at first & than tends to take to 1 or 2 kids. i guess we'll just wait & see how things go.  we have open house monday, that should be fun.

everything is labled, packed, & ready to go! new clothes, shoes, and everything else. here's hoping for a great school year!

Bealls Back To School Shopping.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bealls for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's that time of year again....BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING!  My boys go back in  less than two weeks!  I'm excited & nervous all in one.  The summer just flew by for us!  When are you're kids going back or have they started?  We are just about done with school shopping.  I need to get maybe 1 or 2 more outfits per kid and then school shoes.  Finding shoes is the worst part for me.  My oldest son is picky and nothing ever seems to fit him just 'quite' right.  My youngest on the other hand, is the complete opposite.  He will wear whatever I buy with NO complaints.

I've been checking several websites to find some good deals on boys shoes. Bealls has some AWESOME deals!  I found several cute shoes. (see picture below).

How cute are these Oshkosh Alpha Loafers!?  I love them!  I love the price even more $15.00!  They were originally $30.00 so 50% off.  Now that is my kind of deal.  Bealls offers FREE SHIPPING for orders over $50, no coupon code needed!  I am all about finding deals or using coupon codes.  One of my main things is not to pay for shipping when ordering online.  I feel it's such a waste of money!    I found several items from Bealls that I can definitely check off my school list!  Be sure to check out their deals!

Farm Fresh.

For the first time ever (well since I been shopping farm fresh) they were doubling coupons up to $2.00.  So if you had a $2 coupon, it took $4 bucks off...which makes for the little bags of dog food free. They did this sale sun-tues.  Everything in this pic was free.

everything was free except 2 out of the 4 bags of dog treats.  I paid .39 each for 2 of them.

FREE PRODUCE!  That is very rare! Farm Fresh was offering a free cantalope coupon via their facebook page! pretty sweet deal!

candles were .39 each.
everything else was free.

Farm Fresh.

Farm Fresh.

paid $1.43 but when you purchased certain items, you would get a $1 catalina coupon that was good off anything. I got back $7 in catalinas!

97% savings.


$7 in catalina's.



went back for a late night trip.
total:  .78!



Target.


last week's target trip.
everything was free but the pillow.
pillow was $2.50 - $2.00 (target coupon) = .50 plus tax.


went to target this week and guess what? the pillows were on sale for $1.97!!!  Pair that with the $2 coupon = FREE PILLOWS!  my first thought was 'yay, free'!  and my second thought was ' dang, i paid .50 last week'!  sad, huh?!
the tape was on sale for .50 paired with $1 manf coupon = FREE plus overage.  I purchased 9 tapes so $4.50 in overage I used towards other groceries.




HOT!

This weather is the EXACT reason I'm a fall/spring kinda chick.  It's supposed to be in the TRIPLE digits tomorrow.  There is nothing remotely enjoying about that. :::::::counting down till summer is OVER:::::::
