I Love VistaPrint!!

Today features a can't-miss deal for any camper - a FREE Tote Bag! It's the perfect accessory for carrying everything your camper needs, like swimming gear, clothing and other personal belongings to and from activities. 

If you’ve never purchased anything from VistaPrint let me tell you they are a fantastic company and produce great quality items and offer so many great freebies.  When I first started this blog I printed business cards at home and after about 2 months I found VistaPrint and worked out the math that it was cheaper to get my cards through them then it was for me to even buy the business card paper never mind the ink!  Since then I’ve ordered 100’s of cards, postcards, business banners, stamps, and labels.  And I’ve always been soo happy with the results, so if you need anything printed including this adorable bag click the link and check them out you won’t be disappointed.

Planning for a cheap weekend

We are planning on attending the Nationwide race in Daytona this Friday night and it is my goal to spend as little money as possible.  I suspect we will probably buy a toy car or two for Shawn and we will have to put gas in the car but it is my hope that we spend no more money than that.  So far this is what we plain to do.

  1. I will be packing lunch and lots of snacks so that we don’t have to purchase food while we are there.  Since we are planning on going early we’ll need lunch and dinner so I’ll pack sandwiches, fruits and snacks
  2. Drinks is another big deal.  It will be July and hot so we will need lots of drinks so I will be packing water, beers for later when it cools off, soda, juice etc.

I have a couple of thermal totes that should carry everything pretty well.  I will also be bringing sunscreen and a tote bag to carry all of our goodies.  I already checked and know what size bags/totes we are allowed to bring in with us so we should be good to go.

So are you making plans for this weekend?  Make sure you plan accordingly and have lots of drinks along with you!!

Are you prepared??

I know most of you don’t live in the land of hurricanes but given the severity of recent storms all over this country are you prepared for the next big storm?  Hurricane season started here last month but we are still making sure we are prepared.  There are a few things on my list to finish preparing I’d love for you to add in what you do to be sure you are ready for bad storms.

  • Get a full tank for the grill.  I saw yesterday that Walgreen’s had refills on sale for $17.99 and have a $3 mail in rebate so I’ll be taking our tank in this week and switching it out.  We also were lucky enough to have a neighbor move and throw away their grill and they gave us their tank so I need to get that tank swapped out for a full one as well.  If we have a hurricane and lose power we will need the use of the grill to cook the food in the freezer.
  • Make a freezer inventory.  This will be good for eliminating waste as well.  If we should lose power I want to know what is in my freezer before I open it up.
  • Pick up a few more shelf stable meals and some shelf stable milk.

We also need to make sure we have water on hand but other than those things we are prepared.

So are you prepared?  I think we need to be prepared year round but for us this is an especially important time of year to have everything on hand.  What time of year do you prepare for and what do you do to make sure you are safe in case of an emergency.

A trip to Publix

I made a quick trip to Publix today and will probably make another one tomorrow since I have to return a Blockbuster free rental.  My store accepts Target and Winn-Dixie as competitors so I used those today along with manufacturer’s coupons.  Here’s what I got:

  • 4 Kellogg’s Cereals BOGO $4.49  -$1/2 mq’s  and $1/3 TQ =$1.50 each
    • these were the big boxes and we are running low on kid cereals especially with the boy going through a growth spurt so there weren’t a bad price
  • 4 NutriGrain Bars BOGO $3.49 -$1/2 TQ  =$1.25 each
    • these are great for Dave to take to work and for me to throw in my purse when we go out cheap snacks help save us money at gas stations
  • 2 Dannon Activia $2 each -$1/2 MQ  =$1.50 each
    • Dave has been eating these and likes this one flavor so I bought a couple more
  • Cars Bandaids $2.59 –.50 MQ and .75 PQ =$1.34 (kids)
    • not a great price and I have cheaper plain ones but the boy realllllly wanted them LOL
  • 4 Crystal Light on the go BOGO $2.99  -$1 mq and $1/4 TQ =.25 each
    • This is a great price and are great to take to Disney (get a cup of free ice water and add one of these)
  • 2 Smuckers Shell Syrup $1.89 -$1 PQ and .55 MQ =.34 each
    • at this price they’ll be nice to have around
  • 2 Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream BOGO $4.49  -$1/2 MQ = $1.75
    • for this it’s a good price and since we don’t eat much ice cream it’ll be nice to have these every once in a while in our favorite flavors
  • 2 Oscar Meyer Deli Creations BOGO $2.50  -$1 MQ  =.25 each
    • For this price I’m going to try and get a few more.  Dave has been working really odd hours and this will give him some more meal options

I spent $16.69 on everything above since I used a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon and I will be entering my codes off all the kellogg’s products and sending in for 2 $5 gas gift cards.  I’m going to try and plan another trip for tomorrow since I have one more WD coupon and wouldn’t mind stocking up on more cereal/snack bars.

A fresh start

It’s June 1st which means we all get a clean slate and get to reset our goals and go go go!!!!

This year has been a hard one for my little family and a very spendy one.  I haven’t been doing the deals like I used to, we’ve been overwhelmed by too much going on and of course those semi unexpected costs have been hitting us like a one two punch.  Let me tell you the first half of this year has managed to knock me and our spending out of whack but it’s a fresh start and I’m getting back on track for this half!

In order to recoup some of our costs and rebuild our savings I’m getting tighter than tight.  No eating out, no single drink purchases, no spending on much.  Too often in the past few months I’ve been too tired or overwhelmed and have just said lets get something out not this month, Shawn is getting out of school so some of my life will be slowing down and I’ll be doing more to have a few quick meals in the house.  We spend too much money at the gas station and we aren’t spending it all on gas we get drinks/sodas in an effort to stop this spending I’ll be purchasing soda when on sale.  I hate buying soda but it’s certainly cheaper to buy a 2 liter at Walmart/Publix than it is to buy a 20oz at the gas station. 

We have 2 more weekends of Star Wars weekends and I will be making sandwiches and refilling some water bottles so that we won’t have to buy any food/drinks while we are there.  I’m going to be striving to live off of $50 a week (not including gas) so let’s see how I do.  I’m not even sure if it will be possible but we’ll see, the one exception to this will be if I receive any orders for my crafts but even with those I’m going to strive to use what I have instead of buying more.

Is anyone else looking at their savings account and wishing it would grow??  Join me on a quest for a frugal summer where we can grow our bottom line.
