I recently took advantage of some Great coupons. I went to WalMart remember WalMart allows for overages on coupons:) and purchased all these goodies for .27 cents. I got 4 packs disposable razors, and used the 6.00 off 2 packs so the razors were 1.97 a pack, and I used my coupons from coupons.com that were floating all around late last week, and printed 2 coupons out as thats all your allowed. and had a $4.04 overage from the 4 packs razors. Then I had coupons for 75 cents off 2 powerades, I had 4 coupons for those, and they are 78 cents at Wal Mart, but our local grocery store had them on sale for 5/3.00 which makes them 60 cents each, and I used my coupons off 2 and I only paid 45 cents for each set of 2 WOW!!!! 2 powerades for 45 cents. I really didn't even pay for them at all if you figure I still had a $4.04 overage from the razors. I used my coupon for my free hershey candy bar that came in the mail. I also had 2 coupons for 5.00 off the hydro razor. I could print 2 coupons from coupon.com, and the razors were 5.47 a piece, so I only paid .47 cents for each hydro razor. After all my overages and coupons I spent .27 CENTS!!! YES!!! Now thats is why I so love coupons!!!!!

Well it sure was a great weekend and a great time at the Backwoods Festival located in Thornville, Ohio. My mom,hubby's aunt, his cousin, and I all went to the Backwoods Festival. It was soooo much fun!!! All the good food, crafts, music, was all WONDERFUL!! Great demonstrations too-making of wooden spoons, brooms, with your option to buy one too. I saw so many handmade items- ornaments, candles, wood crafts, pictures,so on.......... I bought a few things including the scarecrow you will see in my pictures below. I have to admit I stopped at the candy booth, cookie booth, and sure had some wonderful sweet treats. Not good on the weight area but really good in my belly:) We listen to some great music, including a couple young kids playing their banjos, and a very talented man playing flute type music from handmade instruments he makes. Their was great food too, handmade vegetable soup in fresh made bread bowls( the soup was made over open fire), fried green tomatoes, handmade root beer floats, calzones, fried bologna and eggs and potatoes, cream puffs, fish, you name it I bet the had it:)Ready for next year!!! Well I just wanted to share some pictures with you from the festival.....and thanks for stopping by......

Last year for Halloween I allowed my daughter to have a HALLOWEEN party, and with the economy and all last year, I told her we would have one but we would have to have a reasonable limit and stick to it. She really wants to have another one this year, so we will see. I am happy to show you some of the party highlights from last year, alot of the props were purchased at Dollar Zone a Dollar store we had in our area. Also from Dollar General, all paper plate, napkins were from Dollar Tree and we had a cake made with a hand coming out of the ground you gotta see that!!! We made a great lil party, had hot dogs we roasted, and chips, and orange sherbert punch, which was AWESOME!!! All the girls got a pumpkin to decorate which was bought at pumpkin patch for 2 dollars each, can't complain:) Candy and the cutest handmade treat bags made from paper brown bags with some material glued onto the small bags were made and each gal got to fill her bag with candy from our lil candy buffet we had, so each girl took home their pumpkin they painted and their candy bags.We came up with some fun games too. I had a special prize for the best dressed costume too:) We will see about having another party this year, but I have to admit last years sure was FUN!!!!

I was getting so upset with the ever mounting lot of shoes our family has. MOST are my teenage daughters shoes! I got tired of tripping on shoes, the way they just laid around on the floor all scattered. So I began looking for a shoe rack. Something nice and not to Cheap looking, and BUDGET friendly. I looked and looked and they had the wire white ones, the tacky over the door ones, that never seem to hold up I have tried them before, shoe boxes, and white particle looking wood storage racks. Well I came across this one and from the options I had to choose from, I actually liked this one. It is a brown frame with a light brown material, that is easy to assemble and really fits into modern day decor. I like the material and the colors, and it is different than the old same ole same ole type shoe rack. But I needed SOMETHING and on the CHEAP. This was 23.99 I believe and I got it from Wal Mart. Trust me I had seen others I liked in magazines and online but way out of my PRICE range. So I settled for this, and I put my Thirtyone items on top the rack for storage, and its colors match into the colors of the shoe rack. So I am a HAPPY MOM right now, NO more shoes everywhere just in the rack. Thanks for reading my rambling, and as always I love all my followers, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along here at my blog:) Happy Day All!!!!!!
