Well Christmas is passed.  Bittersweet this year because it was sooo hectic trying to get everything done, decorating, gift making, shopping, wrapping.   I was finishing a gift for my sister Christmas morning and wrapping Chris' gifts while he was sleeping Christmas morning.  Next year will be different (I vaguely remember saying something like that last year - but I could be wrong).  I bought some pretty decorations this year thrifting that was fun - packing them away - not so much.  Chris and I picked out a beautiful tree this year and it was the first one we stamped open!  Have to invest in a new stand next year this one had a leak so we couldn't water the tree so it didn't last as long as I would have liked.  But it was still beautiful!  Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and remembered the reason for the season.

The coolest thing happened to me Wednesday when I was getting my gas.  I was waiting behind a woman who was paying cash, the lane next to me opened up but I just stayed where I was since I was reading on my phone.  When she was finished she came to my window and said that someone bought her groceries for her that morning so since I was so patient she was paying if forward and gave me $20.  So I'll be paying it forward too.  Wouldn't it be nice if we all made an effort to do something nice for a total stranger.  That's the real spirit of Christmas.  So Merry CHRISTmas everyone and Pay It Forward!

Coupon Ladies' Yard Sale

Fall coupon ladies' toiletries and household cleaners yard sale was this weekend and maybe next weekend also.  These ladies stock their garage with products bought with coupons and I mean stock it - from deodorants to laundry detergent.  Everything in the picture cost $35 that's it.  They sell enough to pay the taxes and whatever is left they donate.  It's a win - win.  The shampoos (Head & Shoulders and Tresemme) alone would be $20 and 9 boxes of Kleenex at $1 each would be $29 total. Then there's the Glade Plug-in and refill, Colgate toothpaste, Febreeze air freshener and fabric freshener, Finish Dishwasher Pods, deodorant, Windex, gum. Quite a score I'd say.
