Y’all thought I got a great deal for twenty cents? Check this out! I went to Target again today and got Finish powerball dishwashing tablets, dental floss, all-purpose cleaner with bleach, and ibuprofen for……..
Target has the cleaner on sale for 1.37 and I had a 1.00 coupon.
The Finish tablets were 2.50, but I had a 1.50 target coupon and a 1.00 manufacturer coupon, so that was FREE.
The dental floss was .99 and I had a 1.00 Target coupon, making it FREE as well.
The ibuprofen is 1.09 and I had a 1.00 Target coupon for that, making it only .09cents.
I took my own bag in, and got a .05cents rebate, bringing my grand total to .50cents.

.20 cents doesn’t normally get you a whole lot these days. It did get me a lot though a few days ago!
Target had Finish Gelpacs (yes, I spelled that correctly) on sale for $2.50 and I had a $2.25 coupon. Take off the .05c that Target gives you back when you use your own bag (don’t worry, mine was a Tractor Supply Bag cause I have to support Ag too) and I paid all of TWENTY CENTS for this:
I’ve used them already and I LOVE THEM!

I've been consumed lately with WORRY and STRESS. There are a few circumstances in our lives right now that are less than perfect and the trials we're going through right now are STRESSFUL.
A verse that keeps making itself known to my head and heart is,
".......Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" Matthew 6:25-27
I know that my help comes from the ONE who has ALL the answers to my worry and stress!
"I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1-2
I covet your prayers and thoughts in this most stressful time!

Before we left for our BIG trip, Cecil opened his presents.

Our robot was made out of tomato paste cans, a Magic Eraser box, a Wheat Thins box, toilet paper rolls, and tomato sauce cans. Nolan did really well with helping. He spray painted most of it, did the eyes, nose, mouth, heart, etc. and held items on while Cecil glued it (it was Super Glue, so I was not about to let him do that part on his own).
As you can tell, he is "so over" the picture taking stage.

Since apparently "no one gives only cards" anymore (or so I'm told by my boys), they begged me for something like a lollipop or piece of candy to go with their Valentine's cards. I hate buying stuff like that because it's so expensive, but I did happen to see that Target had SweeTarts lollipops on sale for $2 and I had a $1 coupon so that made these sweet bags of lollipops only $1.00. Now THAT I was willing to pay for!
I treasure both my boys' teachers! They are gems! I wanted to do a little something special for them, so I decided to make brownies for them in the shape of hearts. I thought I had a heart shaped pan, but I didn't, so out came the heart-shaped cookie cutter!
I had some adorable "old-fashioned" looking Valentine's Day bags, so I put several of the brownies in a bag and tied it up for each teacher, along with a heart-note!
Hope you had a great Valentine's Day!

Yuck. I shudder every year when December 31 rolls around because I know for us it means TAX time. Because we don’t pay quarterly taxes on the farm, it means anything we owe good ‘ol Uncle Sam is due by March 1. THIS means on January 1, we have to start gathering up receipts, organizing, sorting, and adding up numbers.
Suffice to say, I’ll be glad when we finish this up (hopefully tonight) and deliver it to our accountant.

Have you heard of the Luv BBW club? It’s a new thing from Bath & Body Works. You simply register and you get a card good for a free item every month. The item is a surprise and you have to redeem the card on a Thursday, but HEY—it’s FREE! NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
Look what I got FREE this month!
Gotta love FREE!
