Savings All Over the Place

Today was a nice break. My boys were able to spend the day in healthy, engaging childcare and I was able to do some shopping without children!

We found good deals everywhere we went:

Target – has some great markdowns on baby items and clothes. The baby items will salvage before long and not be able to be sold so jump on them now. There is a little bit of toy clearance left as well.

Kohl’s – incredible 80% off deals. We picked up a good deal of $2, $3, $4, and $5 shirts and pants from infant to adult. We also had a lot of luck in the shoe department where they had children’s shoes as low as $6.99. I got two pairs of shoes – Converse and New Balance – for $12 each.

Kid to Kid – I have shared several good clearance deals with you from Kid to Kid lately. Today we went by there and I did manage to find an awesome black leather jacket for my boys for just $15.

Once Upon a Child – Not too long ago, Juice in the City offered a voucher where you paid $10 and got $20 worth of items from Once Upon a Child in McKinney. Today I went to use my vouchers and was astounded at the amount of stuff on sale and on clearance. Whereas other stores and consignment sales have a few shoes in each size, Once Upon a Child had a bin of shoes for each size! They were also taking 70% off their redlined clearance merchandise. We were able to get pants, shirts, shorts, and more for as low as $.75!

I specifically went looking for baseball pants and cleats for my boys who will soon be starting their first year of baseball together. I found a pair of like new cleats for $3.50! CRAZY!!

Looking forward to another break from 24 hour/7 days a week mommyhood tomorrow – working in the morning a little bit more on consignment items and then lunch with the girls and a massage – from yet another daily deal. I don’t know what I would do without these daily deals. They make life so much more enjoyable. Smile

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
