Products I Love!!!!

I used this Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, 2 ct to clean my daughter's cheering shoes before her competition this past weekend. They looked like new!! It is also great for tubs, fingerprints on walls and more!!
BenGay Ultra Strength Pain Relieving Patch, Regular Size, 5-Count Boxes (Pack of 3) - this is something that people need to know about! I recently had a pain in my shoulder that brought tears to my eyes. After a week of suffering, I finally tried this and was 100% better the next morning!
Zip-Loc Heavy Duty Dry Bag - X-Large - these are great to store out of season clothing! They fit nicely under the bed and they are cheaper then rubbermaid containers!!!

2 months and counting!!

Today is October 25! That means 2 months until Christmas! How much shopping do you have done?
One way I always generated a little extra income was to recycle my aluminum cans. Now, I never claimed to make a million dollars doing this but any extra cash is always nice and you also help the environment. At one time I used to go for walks and pick up cans along the way. When I worked full time in an office, I used to bring all the cans home from the girls who sat near me. That added up quickly. But, now we only have the cans that we use and it takes quite a while for us to get enough together to take to the recycle place. Since I have been doing this for many years I found it hysterical when I came upon the story of these 2 guys!! Enjoy! How Much is Inside a Shopping Cart?

CVS has extra care bucks with their store card and I am always hearing about the awesome deals that Walgreens has but I do not have one near me. Don't forget to check the sale ads in your sunday paper for the drugstore.

The Tightwad Gazette

I have this book posted on the right hand side of this page. I first heard about this book from my friends on the AOL penny pinching board. When I first read it, I could not put this book down. This woman is incredible. She lives a pretty nice life on a small amount of money. She tells you how to save money on just about everything you do in life! Some of her ideas are a little extreme and may not be for everyone but I guarentee everyone will get something from this book. She will at least make you rethink how you currently do things in your house. This is the best money saving book I have every read and I highly recommend it to anyone who has not already.

Eversave Nestle Promotion - a printable coupon. Some have reported getting a $2.00 coupon while others have gotten less. A $2.00 coupon would be great going into the baking season. I am out of ink and will not be rpinting one today. Tell us what your coupon was worth!
