Walgreens Shopping on 8/30/2011

Figured I'd start posting what I am bringing home and how I did it.


So, I went to one store and they didn't have some items so I had to go to another store. This picture shows the items that I got from both stores. I started my shopping off with $13 Register Rewards in hand as well as Coupons.

Receipt 1:
4 Bags of M&Ms 4/$10
2 Playtex Sport Tampons $3.99 each
I had 2 $1 off two coupons for the M&Ms
I had 2 $1 off coupons for the tampons
Used $10 Register Rewards
Paid Out of Pocket $4.88
Got back $6 Register Rewards

Receipt 2:
Carmex Lime Twist Lip Balm $1.50
2 Planters Peanut Butter $1.50 each
I had .50 cent coupon for the lip balm
I had .75 cent coupon for the peanut butter
Used $3 Register Rewards
Paid out of pocket .34
Got back $1.50 Register Rewards

Pretty sweet deal. Now I have 7.50 RR to go into next shopping trip.

Have a happy day,

Going Back To School?

So, I have really been thinking lately about going back to school. Mainly because I am tired of hunting for jobs and not being skilled in them. I am going to check out what grants I can possibly get. I'd love to be able to afford going back to school with merely no costs other than books/supplies. To be perfectly honest, I haven't a clue as to what to take up. I am thinking that since I went to The Phlebotomy Training Center in Pittsburgh back in 2000 that I should just take the 9 week course at TMIKY for Phlebotomy. I can get my certification and just get a job in that. I have already found so many jobs for that online in this area. I don't know for sure. I've got a couple things that are holdin me back from that. I have been really wondering what would make me happy. What career would honestly make me happy? Maybe you have a suggestion? Leave me a comment in the comment area below... Please.

This is me:
1. As much as I like to talk to people, I really am a loner. haha I'd love to do something where I don't have to interact with people that much. Maybe one on one every now and then, but not all of the time. I didn't like working at Convergys talking to people back to back all day long. I didn't like having to talk to people at Walmart all day long either. Now, at the IRS I just sat there with my headphones on and jammed to my music. Talked to my neighbor every now and then but mainly kept to myself and made sure I made quota. I love jobs like that.
2. Is there something that I could do at home?
3. FACT IS: I haven't a clue what I am passionate about other than working for Jesus and being with my hubby!

I wish there was something I could do that I could get rich quick. HAHA Don't we all. I promise that I would love to chill at home doing odd and end jobs, have a baby, and let hubby bring all the monies home. Still dreaming.

Maybe Medical Coding? Can't you do that from home. What are some jobs that you can do at home but require you to go to college? Go ahead name them! (Down in the comments. Type fast)

Well, it is late here but I am thinking up a storm so I figured I'd update the blog. Sorry, I have been missing in action. Finally got my desktop back up and running! Thanks to my best friend lover guy! Oh and I also bought me a brand new desk chair today. Super excited about that. I still have to assemble it. It will be assembled tomorrow and I may take a picture for my viewers. You just don't know how much this chair I am sitting in now annoys me. The back won't stay adjusted. It is going in the dumpster!!!

Onto see what I can find to do... I should be going to bed shortly!

Have a happy night,

Just cashed in points and will recieve $20 check :)

Hey everyone. :)

Just wanted to post something on my blog about free rewards. If you are wanting to get money for doing just a few surveys here and there, then check out Opinion Outpost. The link is over there ----> Just click it and it will take you to the page you need to get started. I just cashed in 200 points and will be receiving a check for $20 within the next few weeks! Easy money.

I can sure use it being laid off right now! I want to let you all know that what I post and what I have on my blog does work. I wouldn't advertise for something if I wasn't doing the surveys/checking email and getting rewarded for doing it! It really works. :)

So, I guess that is all for right now. I am waiting on Travis to get home! I am also in the mess of pricing stuff for a yard sale this Saturday at my Mother-in-laws! I hope I make some money there. I absolutely don't want to bring anything back home with me.

Have a happy evening,

Tuesday

When It Doesn't Work

What do you do when your Advil Liquid Gels don't work? You take a nap. Which I am gonna have to do, I think. I have the worst headache. I've had it since around 11 today. I wish it would go away. I might just make dinner, eat and then call it a night.

Maybe it is a migraine. Or maybe just sinuses?

I can't tell.

However, complaining helps a little. ;-) Say a prayer for me!


Have a happy night,

Worst Dinner Ever

So tonight I decided to do something a little different. I decided to place ground beef in the oven as shown here. However, I did not make them like white castles using the onion because my husband doesn't like onion that much. I just seasoned my meat and put it down and followed the baking instructions.

Big no no no no no!

Seriously, the meat was dry and I had some slim buns (Aunt Millie's brand) that tasted horrible too. To top it all off, I burnt some sweet potato fries too. Tonight was just not the night. At least I had some Cookies N Cream Ice Cream to make up for it, right?



PS Please if you read this and have yet to follow me, follow my blog! Have a happy night :)

Monday

Ring the Bell, It's Dinner Time!

Since I have two weeks of meals to choose from, I am just to put the whole list of dinner meals. I was going to say this is what we are having Monday, Tuesday etc. But it is better to give the option to chose what to make. So, tonight we are having the Cheeseburgers and Sweet Potato Fries. This is what my husband decided.

Breakfast around here is chose what you want. I recently got a great deal at Walgreens. I bought 4 boxes of Nutrigrain bars... they end up being free after rebate! :) So, there is those bars, cereal, oatmeal, or toast.

Lunch - Hubby gets whatever at work. He usually just goes to Wendy's and gets 3 dollar meal. I've been on a Chicken Noodle Soup kick. Today I had the soup plus some black grapes.

Here are a list of dinners for this week and next.

Slow Cooker Mexicali Chicken over Rice
Montreal Chicken in Packet and Peirogies
Saucy Balls and Shells
Grilled Chicken n Veggies over Pasta.
Footlongs from Subway ;)
Cheeseburgers (cheddar) and sweet potato fries
Homemade pizzas
Grilled Turkey Burgers and broccoli/cauliflower
Slow cooker chicken and gravy
French Toast and Eggs

And I am sure on Sunday/Wednesday, we will be eating elsewhere. We always seem to catch up with someone from church and fellowship :)

Have a happy day,

God's Chosen Vessels

We had a wonderful service last night. I also heard the morning service was the same but I was teaching SS. Praise and Worship was wonderful. I took off from the balcony and danced like I've not danced in the Spirit in a long while. Having gone to church last night with a "woe is me attitude" (but left feeling alot better), that service is definitely what I needed. Husband preached last night as well and preached a message titled "God's Chosen Vessels." A great Word!
