If you haven’t noticed, I have not had a chance to post anything for the last few days.  We are in a period of readjustment right now.  With my husband starting a new job and two boys in baseball/Tball, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment.  My computer time is non-existent right now!  Hopefully I can get into a good routine soon and get back to posting.  Stick with me – I’ll pull it together! 😉 

If you subscribe, you will be able to know when I post without having to keep checking back. 

FYI – I came across this deal today: go to and use zip code 62946 – there is a $1 off McCormick coupon!  Those are hard to come by!!!  You can go in and print any coupon on there twice!  I’ve also read that Target is going to have Kellogg’s cereal on sale next week – there are some great coupons for Kellogg’s cereal on there – print now before it is gone if you like Kellogg’s cereal.

Target Deals of the Week

Click here to see the deals you can get this week at Target.  I’ve already gone and gotten the Huggies diapers and Dial soap.  I went last week and got the boys the toothbrushes and was able to get Johnson & Johnson shampoo for FREE after 2 coupons.  I also had all the toy coupons I have posted lately and found the Operation game on rollback for $10.05.  After my $5 coupon, I got it to stick back as a gift for only $5.05!  I also found some good toys to stick back for gifts that were on clearance for 75% off.  It sure is nice when one of the boys gets invited to a birthday party to just go check the closet for a gift 😉

If you haven’t tried the Pledge Fabric Sweeper for pet hair yet, it works great!  Just make sure you follow the directions.  There was a coupon for it in the paper today.  Just wanted to let you know that it is a good product.  My mother-in-law gave me one and I have loved it.  It is about time for me to get a new one.
