Ever since we've had a dishwasher (since our last apartment sooo about 2 years..) I've been saying that I want one of those "clean/dirty" magnets to know if the dishwasher is clean or dirty. I'm too lazy to open and look every time, yet I am too lazy to go out to the store and buy the magnet so a catch 22! On my last weekday off before starting work next week (scary!) I decided to do a little crafting and what better to make than a clean/dirty magnet! With a few inspirations from online, I was on my way:

I love it! What do you think??

Coupon Deals: July 5, 2012

Happy Fourth of July (belated)! This has been a crazy week.. With Dan having the day off in the middle of the week and me going to Six Flags twice made it very hectic. Yes, twice to 6 flags! Since we live a whole 15 minutes away, and with all the perks, it made sense to get a season pass. It pays for itself after visiting the park 2 times! Fun times (minus my lovely X marks the spot tan lines on my back to go with my pink shoulders) :o) Anywho, onto the deals!


Deals were lacking at CVS this week so I figured I'd save my ECB for a better time L


Also nothing too impressive with Walgreens this week. Last week, Dan informed me that one of our loofahs decided to commit suicide while he was taking a shower (supposedly it just randomly fell apart..) so that was on the list of things we need.. no coupons specicially for that sadly. Although, It’s that time of year to stock up on shaving supplies and all those wonderful feminine products (which means a bunch of coupons for those)! So for the next month or so my posts will likely consist of at least one of those things

 I spent $2.28 for $7.48 worth of merchandise for a savings of 70% and earned $1 toward a future purchase, making this deal more like a savings of 83%!

I love money makers! Rite Aid is probably my favorite drug store to coupon at, mainly because I always feel like I save so much money there!
