Take a look at your local TARGET

Posted by Picasa

some Target findings...

Did you get your free bag today? It's only for today 4/19 Check it out here

I got mine...

while at the check out today, I noticed GUM on clearance. STRIDE and Trident, yummy flavors, for .74cents a pack. Use your $2/3 Coupon and get three packs for .24 cents each. I, unfortunatly, already used all of mine...the Mandarin Stride is REALLY good. just a heads up.

also, Lays Stax were 1$, which is a normal price point, just hadn't seen them that low in a while, so I picked up a few.

on another Target note, I bought the Target brand pop tarts today, and the kids like them just the same as the Kellogs brand. so I saved .78 cents just by buying a store brand today. since there weren't any pop tart coupons to use...

A New EASTER sweet

While I made dinner, my 2 oldest
made a GREAT attempt at tomorrows Sweet Treat.

daughter did white chocolate, son did the M&Ms
we melted white choc chips and spooned them onto
the pretzels, cuz by the time we made it to the
cake supply store, they were closed. so, we
IMPROVISED, and I think it's totally gonna work.

The finished product.
Thanks to Polk-a-dot Apron's blog.
Love this blog. They share so many cute
ideas to do with your family. This definetly
killed some time while I made dinner,
then after dinner we had the rest the night
to color eggs.

Who ate all the Entenmann's?

My friend, Jennifer, called me last night asking if I'd like to go with her and do a run to the bread outlet. It's far for us, like 35 min on the Freeway, and we really need to go to the Girl Scout store in the same city anyway, so it'd be worth the trip. My hubba hubba LOVES Orowheat bread and since I can get it so cheap there, I thought "I'M IN!"

Though my outlet doesn't show up here, you should check this website out and see if you have an outlet close to you...find out if they have double stamp days, and what those days are...Doesn't all the food look yummy?
