Coupons Found in Todays Paper!

I thought we would not have any coupons in todays paper, but I was wrong! Here is what I found.

Fazzolis Coupons

Hallmark Coupons (found in Parade)

A P&G insert (that is proctor and gamble)
Coupons like $4 off Fusion Razors
$1 off Tide

Here is a few ideas on how to use those coupons.

CVS, has Tide on sale for $5.99, use $1 off
Target has a GC deal wyb certain items, best deal is buy 2 Fusion Razors for $7.99 use a 2 $4 off coupons, out of pocket (oop) would be $8 plus tax, get $5 GC back. Repeat and only be out of pocket $3 plus tax when you use the $5 GC from Previous order, get another $5 GC!

Black Friday Shopping

Well I would like to say I stayed in bed all day, and got some much needed sleep, but at 5 AM I woke up, and started dreaming of going shopping, so I popped out of bed and headed off to Toys R' Us. I live about 20 minutes away, and as I was driving in the dark to go shopping, with sleepy eyes, wearing my sweatsuit, I thought to myself, I will park go into the store, grab my train set and table, and be out of the store in no time... well think again as I am scouring the parking lot for a place to park. The place is packed, I walked into the store and I guess I was lucky because I got a shopping cart! Did not realize how lucky I was until I got into line with my train set and table, and looked around to see lots of people without carts, and they had to carry their items through the line. It took only 1 1/2 hours to get through!

I have come to the conclusion, it is have great deals, make the lines long, so people in line will buy more items because of the boredom in line! Because really, do you want to stand in line for only one thing? NO! Like a $4 Candy Land game, I will pay $15 for one to avoid standing in line! LOL..

So I was finally at the finish line and spent only $60 more than what I was originally going to spend, that is the plan Toys R Us had from the beginning. The marketing ploy definately worked on this chick!

Oh, then after Toys R' Us, I went to Old Navy snagged some jeans, and got out of their in under 15 minutes, it was great. Finally I was home back in bed at 8:30, kids and hubby still asleep, and I was back awake at 9:30 eating my 2nd breakfast of the day and making more coffee!

Egg Beaters! GREAT product! Product Review

You know... I would never think to buy egg beaters. I mean why would you do that when you can buy the eggs individual right. So I was out shopping and they had a big container of Egg Beaters for .99, needed to be used right away.

So this is what I made.

I took a round skillet, sprayed with PAM. Then I shook up the egg mixture, and poured about 1 cup in the skillet, added a little salt and pepper and cooked until the sides lifted.

I then put shredded cheese in the middle, folded over and cooked a few seconds longer. This made a wonderful omelet for my boys breakfast before school!

Best of all, click on my coupon link and print a $1 off Egg Beaters!

Okay, am going to have a better day!

This is my plan today.
Spend time with kids, not the computer.
I am going to buy a vacuum, and sweep the wood floors.

Those are my to do's.

I will also do a load of laundry.

Potty Training 101

Okay, here is my potty training boys advice that worked for me. When my son turned 2, he went pee on the big potty all by himself, that was the first time. I did not force him to potty train, we just talked about it, and I mean alot. So off and on it was hit and miss on the potty, that could be literal talk too, as if we did not point the peepee down, then it would spray out of the toliet.

So, I did not use a special seat, my son just sat on the toliet, and went. The hardest part of training, was training myself. So he wore diapers/ pullups for the next 5 months with waking up dry 60% of the time, and going in the toliet about 80% of the time. So we were doing awesome!

Peeing was the easy part, (except when he would pee on the carpet, which we got new carpet right in the beginning of the training!) now for the poop.

Braddock, my 2 year old, would go get a diaper and then he would poop in his diaper, no problem, then I would change him! I did not make a big deal, just act sad, and we would change and go on. Much better then going poop in the undies! LOL.

So, the status now is that as of 2 weeks ago, we are pooping on the potty, peeing in the potty, wearing underwear all night and day! (with a few accidents once in awhile) Bye Bye diapers!
