This FREE offer is back too! It is a GREAT way to make family picut res for a child's room - no glass to get broken! They LOVE seeing pictures of those they love adorn the walls of their own spaces too...we have made several. and just ordered one of Miss Sarah with Merida and Tiana/Naveen from our last trip to complete here room. We could have bought plain posters at Target but it's soooo much cooler to see HER in the Princess Pictures WITH them. It makes it all more "Magical". Last year, we did a series of three for the Princess Bedroom...all photos of her at Disney! Two were with different princesses and this one, was her getting a princess makeover at the Bibbiti Bobbiti Salon, and I will mix in that canvas art that was a DIY project ( you can see HERE ) I LOVE the quality from these people and the FREE price tag makes it even sweeter! The shipping is WAAAYYYY less than it would be to get this print locally done (just under $15 vs $80-100 for a local

A Sarah-ism.......

Me: What did you learn new today?      Sarah: Not to sing Twinkle Twinkle during quiet time or I will get yelled at by my teacher. Me: Did she REALLY yell at you?      Sarah: No... but maybe she would have liked it better if I had sung a song from church. Those always go over big.   {{{sigh}}}

Resale Clothing Events

Image
I have a little girl and yes, t hat means she is a fashion junkie! Little people grow so fast that what fit them LAST summer or winter no longer fits THIS summer or winter...everything from sweaters to sneakers needs to be replaced. Granted, stores have sales, but resale events and garage sales are SOOOOO much cheaper! When your kid is only 5 or 6, they grow so fast that things don't really have time to wear out...so used clothing is usually in pretty decent shape. You can SELL your outgrown items and then take that cash to invest in new things to wear. Soon is the Just Between Friends Dane County WEST and EAST Resale events. It is like a children's consignment store that is only around 2x a year - and just for the weekend. I hang and tag a bunch of Sarah's outgrown toys and clothes to sell (this year, four bins full!) and refresh her wardrobe with larger sizes. I am also getting rid of a bunch of toys that we have outgrown like the play kitchen, workbench, Duplo blo

A few things you need to know about these stores: You can double up to five manufacturer coupons (with a value of $1.00 or less) on Wednesdays and Saturdays, thru the end of December. Your total order needs to be at least $25 before tax and after store coupons, and you need to use your Roundy's rewards card in order for your coupons to double.  Individual store coupon policies may vary, so be sure to check in with customer service.... but the standard company policy is listed HERE   Don't forget about the Fuel Perks Program ( here )   They have a big 10 for $10 sale - just remember, you can get ONE for $1.00 if you would rather. It's also Bonus Box Tops Time! What a great way to help your school :) Produce Deals --Look for $1/# or less for fresh, seasonal items --Weigh bags to get the heavier ones (ex: 10# bag of potatoes for $2.99, you might get an 11# bag) --Aldi has GREAT deals on fresh fruit this week -- blowing all the Roundy's price
