Wastin' Away Again....

Well, it's about time! Finally, the margarita man himself, Jimmy Buffett has finally announced when his circus will hit Toyota Park this summer!!! August 23rd! Mark your calendars! Now we can finally plan the rest of our summer! Tickets go on sale Monday morning at 10AM. Yay!!!! I'm looking forward to planning. It's always a GREAT time. This will be my 21st JB show.

Shopping Without Coupons....Ugh.

While I'm not a person who won't buy something unless there is a coupon attached to it somehow, I rarely have a shopping experience where there are no coupons involved at all. I had one of those today. Yuck! $56 at Target!!! I didn't even buy all that much. Such is life.

A couple of years ago, I donated the lovely pink plaid couch from the Dolton house to the BHS Library. It was in my back room and it needed a new home....and the library was looking for some donated furniture for a reading area. A win for everyone!

As I was walking through the library this morning, I noticed someone had made their mark on it. And yes, I'm 13...and while it was wrong, I'd be lying if I said I didn't get a small chuckle out of it.

Before School CVS

This is for you, Cousin Lisa! :)

I hit up the CVS this morning on my way in to score some free deodorant and free pop. CVS is selling Dove Men's deodorant (only the ones with the gray caps) $2 each. Print off the Dove Men's deodorant coupon from (go to the personal care section) and you've got it for free!

2 Dove Deodorants - $4.00 (used 2 $2/1 printables)
1 Diet Dr. Pepper - $1.69 (took off $2 for liking them on Facebook)
1 Bag of Jelly Beans - .99 (I had no coupon for this. I heart jelly beans...'tis the season)

Out of pocket price....$1.12 (.44 of which was tax!) Not bad!

Do You Tanga?

I heart Tanga! It's a site that has some cool daily deals. They update their deals every night around 8PM. There is always a cool t-shirt, as well as a magazine deal. I've gotten some decent magazine deals on this site, as well as my favorite "Bazinga" (shout out to Sheldon from Big Bang Theory) t-shirt.

They are doing a sweepstakes right now for St. Patrick's Day that will give you a year supply of Lucky Charms and $100 in scratch off tickets. Fun! Why not enter? Click the link below!

Good Luck!

Happy Pulaski Day!

Well, I still am unsure as to the significance of Casimir Pulaski (other than a N/S main drag being named after him), but I am thankful for his contributions to the City of Chicago. And I am also thankful of the day off! Yay!

Last week was crazy. Nicky Finn was sick, I had a dental issue, and I had my T-Ball manager/coach meeting. Busy, busy, busy!

Today, I'm vowing to invite people to follow me on my blog. I don't want to become some big name in blogging, but I can post deals, stories, general announcements....right?
