weekend Shopping Deals

My favorite part of the weekend is looking through ads in the weekend newspapers.  For a time we had three different newspapers delivered to our driveway (it was great for extra coupons, but trees and cost got the best of me).  One newspaper covered the area South of us, one newspaper covered the area North of us, and the other paper is The New York Times.  Presently, The North has won, local, and The New York Times.   I do use the coupons in the paper for grocery, and retail stores.   I keep retail store coupons in a small tote bag that I can grab heading out the door, and grocery coupons are kept in a small clear plastic file box to easily look through in a hurry.
Back to the weekend, this weekend actually, JCPennyhas an ad with a coupon for an extra 15% of when using their store card, and door busters Friday and Saturday.  When I was younger we always called that store Penny's, my children always say "it is JCPenny mom"  true it is and I read this week that James "Cash" Penny is the J. C. part.  News to me, and glad to know that!  I like knowing what letters stand for, weird I know.  
Macy's (also bambergers before, remember that one-loved it) has a SHOP FOR A CAUSE day Saturday, purchase a WOW pass for $5 and get savings, the purchase of the pass benefits three charities.  Sears will be having a toy shop grand opening, there is a coupon in their ad for $5.00 of purchase of $30.00 or more. Special events on Saturday 11:00 to 1:00 of drawings, cupcakes, and Free gift card to first 50 families. For the do it yourself weekend task Lowe's is offering a FREE Framing hammer with the purchase of listed tools in the ad.  Click on the store names for more information.  If you don't happen to have these ads or forget your coupon when you get to the store-a learned hint from my mom-go right to the customer service counter and ask for the coupon or ad, even the sales cashier usually has extra coupons they can scan for you.  Go out and get some bargains!

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
