free ear plugs

what a crazy weekend! On Saturday day I threw a bridal shower from my cousin. Once the party was over we headed to MA. On Sunday we went to a friends wedding. I made my first bouquet of flowers for the bride. It was exciting, as soon as my hubby loads the pics, I will show you. Then drove back home last night. Today my family left our apartment and in a few tons of friends are coming over dinner. :-) I love keeping busy.

Anyways, back to the frugal stuff. Get a free pack of ear plugs. If you hate noise while you are trying to sleep, like me, then this is for you.

Dollar Tree

I have talked to alot of people last Sunday who all think that dollar tree isn't a great place to shop. They assume that everything is cheap quality and will break when you touch it. I am a big fan of the dollar tree. I have found so many items over the past year that are the same as the "as seen on tv" brand items for a dollar. I never have to pay full price for items because I know I will eventually find it at the dollar store.

I am throwing a bridal shower for my cousin on Saturday. As I was planning the party I decided I would check the dollar store for items. I got some boxes similar to these but actually look a lot better.

Click here!
These are $0.58 each I bought a pack of 10 for $1.00

Also, I bought plates, napkins, cups silver and white with petal design for $1.00 each. There are tons of decorations as well. I will try to add pictures as I am putting up the decorations tomorrow.

I will be going back tomorrow to get some balloons for the party. But whenever you think about throwing a party, check out the dollar store first. It is amazing how much money you can save if you go there first!

a frugal tip

I was watching hgtv the other, dreaming of what it would be like to own a house, and going crazy decorating, oh well. So they were showing a neat trick to get rid of crayon marks on the wall, a cheaper alternative to repainting. All you will need is toothpaste and a normal sponge. They put the toothpaste on the sponge and the crayon marks came off after a tad bit of scrubbing. Just don't tell you children how easy it is to remove their art off the wall.

cvs deals

CVS deals

Right now if you buy old spice body wash and/or gillette body wash you pay $4.00 with a $4.00 extra bucks making it free. I had gone for an item that is usually $8.99 on sale for $4.88. I got 2 free mens body wash.

Total savings $12.11 and got what I wanted.

Also while you are there, you can get a few different types of shampoo that say try me free. If you are willing to experiment, grab a few and send in the rebate! I got a conditioner.

After a few pep talks and people telling me I should keep blogging I have decided to come back to the blog world. I was reminded why I was doing the blog and for that reason I should continue. I was happy to see a comment after my previous post. I will in a few weeks start post more regularly.
