I have been slacking on pictures lately! Here are several to try to make it up to you! This is the counted cross stitch picture I just finished. I started it over a year ago to hang in my kitchen. Finally! I will be taken it to be framed soon... I promised myself that!!
Here are all the sample I recieved in the last month. Some are from stores, some from the pediatrician's office and the others are from the mail.

This is my latest Bzz campaign from ... not a bad package to recieve!!! All I have to do is share some of the samples and spread the word to some of my friends! I am very happy to try the pledge wipes.. I am anxious to see how they work on stainless steel appliances. My DD is anxious to try the duster!

Fresh home made salse. We like it chunky so I guess it would be more like a pica de gallo. What ever you want to call it, it is yummy!! Everything is from the garden!

A nice big cantelope from the garden too. Our garden sure does help the summer food budget!!

We cleaned the shower head and kitchen sprayer with vinegar today. For the shower, I put vinegar in a plastic bag and taped it over the shower head. The kitchen sink sprayer just got soaked in a glass of vinegar. Vinegar is not only frugal but earth friendly too. I have also used it as a fabric softener and a drain cleaner (along with baking soda). Here are some more uses for vinegar......

I colored my hair last night. After coupon the color kit cost $4.99. If I would have gone to my regular salon, it would have cost $75 for color. Now that is a savings! I will be going to the salon for a cut though this week. SO... for $30 I will have had a cut and color instead of the $100 it costs if I have it all done at the salon.

Netwinner Update..... Earlier this week, I qualified for another $25 gift card from netwinner. This time it took me 5,665 clicks. I also had 8 new referrals worth 100 points each and 2 that played past 100 spind for another 400 points each. I have a few tips to share too. First, it is very important to verify your email address with netwinner. Go to my account and click on verify email and then follow the directions. Second, I have learned that points are hard to earn during the day. I do play during the day because I sit at a computer for several hours and it is easy for me to play while I work. BUT.. I find points are much easier to get in the evening. I try to click on netwinner when ever I can at night Third, it seems I have a very hard time earning points when I am between 10,000 and 15,000 points. Before and after those values, points come much easier for me. I try not to get discouraged and keep clicking. If you have not checked out netwinner, give it a try. Since late April, I have earned $50 in gift cards. Good luck and happy clicking!


I had a great mail day yesterday. I got my free sleeping bag from the Marlboro give-a-way, $10 check from and $2.00 cash from there too for agreeing to send them some of my junk mail. That makes up for samples being a little slower this past month! - printable refund form
