Simple Ways to Save : Take the Survey on Your Receipt!

Share via email

How many of us blatantly ignore the survey printed at the bottom of our receipts? I know I was one of those silly people (& yes, I am calling you silly).

It is easy cash!  Stores like Old Navy will offer you 10% off your purchase.  Friendly’s offers you $5.00 a $25.00 purchase (major score!) & Rite Aid offers you $3.00 off. 

Don’t be lazy – take the survey.

Mission Impossible : Matching Our Socks

I tried, I failed…. We have like 400 socks with no matches… How does this happen (again) ???

I blame Grandma – she went on strike & stopped matching my socks. But I still love her!

Our Boston Market Thanksgiving : Still too much food!

Share via email

As I said before, we had a Boston Market Thanksgiving & it was delicious! 

The only mark in the minus column was the Boston Market Store wouldn’t take my $4.00 off coupon or the $15.00 off catering coupon since I bought the heat & serve meal….

Without further adieu… here is the pre-cooked food.  (We even used the containers to send home leftovers!!!)

We got:

  • 1 Sweet Potatoes (with strudel & marshmallows….)
  • 2 Mashed Potatoes (should have only gotten 1, Dad made his tri-state-area famous twice-baked potatoes)
  • 2 Stuffings (love the stuffing!)
  • 3 lbs Turkey (totally enough for the 7 of us eating it)
  • 1 Sweet Corn
  • 2 Gravy’s
  • 18 Corn Breads (& we made Crescent Rolls)

The really nice part about Boston Market was the food was sent home in 2 of these bags

Can’t wait until next year!
