Coupon Deals at Target!

A few days ago I posted a little teaser over on facebook about the savings I had just scored using coupons -
almost $60, and 2 $5 gift cards at Target! 

I like to make a fun game out of couponing, to save us money, but I don't really try to "stock-up" on items we don't need or will never use.
(Ok, unless it's free. And there is a possibility of us using it)
TLC had that extreme couponers show - I am no where near that!
No coupon binder over here, just a little organized "file envelope" I carry. 

Anyway, my husband was quite impressed by my big savings, and additional gift card snags. 
We needed printer ink, diapers and groceries; so a big variety and some big price items. 

Tie dye day, again!

Today we have a fun craft planned at my house, tie-dye! 
So, while I am busy with that today, I wanted to give you a look back at our tie dye day from 2 years ago (almost to the day...weird). Look for a follow-up post from today soon.

Bookshelf to Play Kitchen




Many, many months ago I decided to turn an old bookshelf we weren't using into a play kitchen for my little guy. Since he's only 1, I wanted something that was his size to play at, and something I could easily re-purpose in the future as well.
