My Free Day

Yesterday, I had what I think I will call "A Free Day". My husband had the day off, and we had some errands to run, so off we went!
Our first stop was to Jamba Juice; where my husband had found a gift card for, and I had a feel good buck Feel Good Buck so I got a Jamba Juice for my husband and I to share, and one for my kids, for less than 1 cost!

Then we went and turned in recycling, because hubby found a bunch of recycling at an apt he turned, and we had some of our own. We got almost $10 there!

Then it was about lunchtime, so we went to Del Taco, where I had a coupon for a free milkshake, due to my birthday and a free 1/2 lb bean and cheese burrito for doing a survey on a receipt. Those do pay off!

Then....we went to Coldstone and got a free Love it Creation...Ice cream and 1 mix in....mmmmm...yummy.

Then....I went to Walmart and got groceries.I returned something so I had a 30.00 credit, plus I used a bunch of coupons. (Thank you Couponizer!) So I got over $90.00 of groceries for 45.00!  YAY!

To me, a very successful day!

The Couponizer

So for those of you who wonder: "How can I use coupons effectively?" "Isn't is too much work" "There are too many to keep track" I have your solution. The Couponizer.
I am not being paid or compensated in any way for this review, I just have to share my joy with you. I have wanted this product for quite a while, and finally got it. Prior to purchasing this, I carried around a binder in a cloth bag with all my coupons in it. If I found a great deal, I often couldn't find the coupon that would make it a fabulous deal. And because I can't drive, I would just lose out. The Couponizer comes in a clear bag, with scissors and everything you need to organize your coupons. It is worth the investment, (which isn't much) to be able to use all my coupons when I choose.

Product Benefits:

  • Enables spending less money at grocery store and other places
  • Reduce paper clutter associated with coupons
  • Save time clipping and sorting coupons by category
  • A fun activity for the whole family
  • Teaches kids the value of money

Then after clipping, the coupons are easily transferred to the pockets in the Couponizer booklet. The categories on the CoupStacker correspond in exact order and color with the Couponizer category pockets.

Leslie Blodgett Bare Skin Eau De Parfum

Leslie Blodgett Perfume Diaries is a limited edition fragrance collection, created exclusively for Sephora, that revisit and evoke pivotal moments in Leslie’s life.
The scent delivers top notes of black pepper, freesia and anise, heart notes of iris, vanilla orchid, plumeria and patchouli, and the dry down sizzles with sandalwood, labdanum and musk.
It is a light, sweet scent that is not overpowering, but simply stated and subtle. It is a scent that speaks of quiet tranquility. It is something I would wear on a daily basis, or for a special occasion.
I can imagine it paired with a simple black dress on an evening out, or my favorite jeans, out shopping with the girls.
This fragrance is flirty and tempting, and I am pleased that I am able to experience it and share my opinion with you.
Bare Skin will go to market with an Eau de Parfum ($55), a Solid Perfume Compact ($35), and a Perfumed Body Cream ($30). The line will be available for purchase exclusively on Sephora.com on 10/08, and hitting store shelves shortly after.
