Purple Organza/Silk Flower Clip

It's funny how when you craft, the first try is always well.....not so great.  These purple organza & silk flower clips came out WAY better than the black one's in this post.  I know, I know.  You live and learn and there's always a learning curve with crafting (always!).  Anyways, wanted to share the cuteness with you.  Aren't they adorable?!  I'm wearing one right now.

Another Great 'Steal'!!

I'm still on that saving high after another great deal today at The Gap!  I just bought (Merry Christmas to ME!) a Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag for $35.!!!  Original cost: $90.  You can't beat that!

Another Great Deal!!

I don't know what it is:  Maybe it's that the holiday season is upon us and I'm spending more than ever (and trying to save more than ever!) or maybe it's just because I like a good deal. Who knows?!  The fact is that I saved a lot of $$ at the grocery store today - all thanks to coupons & specials (and even freebies)!  Check it out.  This is what I bought all for $50!!!

Yep, that's right.  $50 bucks!  $100 worth of groceries for half the price! Even all of the fruit in the basket!  Some of these things I don't normally buy at the grocery store like bakery cookies, hamburger helper, bleach, saran wrap, hand soap and store-brand pretzels but they were either FREE or I paid practically nothing for them.  I am a big fan of Sprouts & Trader Joes for certain items (produce, meats).  Shout out to Dean because he's a big fan of White Castle burgers and if I happen to go to the grocery and NOT pick up a box, then it's all over for me. ;)

Preferred Savings: $33.85
MFG Coupon Savings: $6.40

Total Savings: $44.74
Total bill: $50.25

Happy Savings Holidays!

It's That Time of Year...

for Christmas accessories!  Get one for someone you love - they just look so darn cute! 

Flower Hair Clips

These gorgeous flower pieces are not for kids only (actually, they are mainly for adults).  These one's are made from organza, satin & tulle (black shown).  I also have purple fabrics as well if you'd prefer. 

(with crystal center beads) $8.

(with silver center beads) $8.

All This for $.89!!!!

Yes, you heard me right!  I just got back from Kohl's and spent a whopping 89 cents on all of this!  It doesn't seem like much, but it's a much needed fruit bowl (Food Network brand) and some Santa wrap for Christmas (100 yds ea.).  I am a bargain shopper.  PERIOD.  I love a good bargain and I LOVE COUPONS!!!  So, I used my Kohl's cash and a 15% off coupon and the grand total was $.89!
