These Colgate twin packs were $7.79. I needed to purchase $14 or more to use the CVS app coupon for $4/14 and this seemed like the best deal to me. I also used $2 off each pack and earned $2 ECB on each.
I also used a $10 gift card that I earn every 3 months for doing a weather survey for a university.
That brought my cash spent total down to $5.08 and I got back $14 ECBs.
CVS has an app that they are using to link up customers with coupons, prescriptions, rewards, etc. I have it on my iPad and it is very useful. So if you are wanting to maximize CVS savings, I suggest you try it.
Sewing- bandana style baby bibs - I found a number of free printable patterns and tutorials to make them.
Below are the other 6 bandana style bibs.
I also altered a purchased costume to fit that sturdy 5 month old grandson.
It's a crocodile. The tail was attached to the back but he couldn't be safely buckled into his car seat with that in the way. So I removed the tail and handstitched the opening closed. The legs were too long so I shortened them. Then I used that cut off pants bottoms to make a waist band to snap the tail onto the little crocodile. The hood was a bit loose so I added more Velcro under the chin so it can be fastened a bit tighter.
So, if you have a costume that needed some resizing, I say just do it. This job was not hard and it's just a costume!
I wrapped a few more clothes hanger for me. I wear skirts a lot. I like to hang them up with clothes pins on hangers, and when the hangers are cloth-wrapped, the clothes pins stay put nicely.
I use sturdy wire hangers, fabric glue and fabric strips. I just used scraps in the past but I found this roll of pink polka dot bias binding in my Mom's cast off pile so I used it.
What do think of my nails? I put on a set of press on nails from Dollar Tree. My husband really likes them and the $1 price tag is great.
