Made it home, safe and sound to NC, in a record breaking 19.5 hours. We came through the door at 6:30 am and I crashed on the bed. Slept for 3 hours and woke up feeling semi-human. Now it's time to start the back-to-school craziness. My kids start the 17th. The teacher's arrive next week. This is tax-free weekend down here in NC...on all school related purchases. So tomorrow I'm printing the kids lists and heading out. I had quite a few coupons from Staples, Office Max and Office Depot, so plan to go there first. I really don't need much. I pick up notebooks and other school supplies at yardsales all year long. Office Depot is offering their "free" backpack with a $10.00 purchase, and since I missed out on the Office Max offer last week, I'll head over there.
And just FYI, Sams Club is offering a 3 free days of shopping August 6, 7 and 8. The best part, NO 5% surcharge! This is a great deal. I let my membership lapse because I've found most things are cheaper on sale with a coupon. But cheese prices can't be beat! Click here and the details will pop up:
I had lots of free samples waiting for me: All Bran, Bulls Eye BBQ sauce, platex tampons, Dr. Weil's skin relief serum and bodycology lotion. Love the mailbox freebies! I will give you a new list soon.
Scads of tomatoes and cukes and my second planting of wax beans all ready for me. Homemade salsa tomorrow!
But tonight, a much needed date with my husband at Macaroni Grill...with a gift card, of course! The last 2 months have been so emotional. Thanks for all the prayers and well-wishes.
Will be drawing for the cookware set if we get 13 more subscribers by midnight, Aug 6th!
