My after Christmas sales haul from Penguins to Pot Holders.

I went shopping the day after Christmas bright and early for half off sales. Here are a few of my favorite finds! I am saving some of these for gifts for next year. 

You can still find Christmas bargains out there! Whatever store you are in look for a clearance section of holiday loot.  Don't overlook your local drug store or card/gift shop too!


These acrylic canisters with lid and gift tag are perfect for next year's homemade goodies.
cost $1.48 each.  Patterns: penguins, snowflakes, owls, trees, and chevron.

I already filled some of the canisters with treats from relatives and neighbors that shared their homemade cookies with us.

Dish towel and pot holder sets 
cost 99 cents

Pot Holder sets with oven mitt and pot holder. 
Cost 99 cents.

These paper products are useful anytime of year at half off, use a coupon if you can. Look for holiday food storage bags and containers.

Puffs and Kleenex brand tissues. I was glad to find the canisters at half off because I wanted to buy them but not for full price. 
Puffs two pack, cost $1.49.
Kleenex 3 pack, cost $3.14.

Kleenex hand towels for the bathroom. These fit on the back of the toilet tank or flip them over and put on the towel bar. Great for guests or everyday use. half off cost was $1.49


Fun holiday cups at half of were $3.49 and I had $5 coupon on my CVS rewards card. The tissue paper and ribbon were $1.00 each.

The cup has a removable snow globe! 

I hope you find some good markdowns on holiday decorations, gifts, and supplies for wrapping next year.

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. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

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,
