edited - so many typos!
I didn’t mean to take a month off from blogging. We are all fine and I’ll show you some of the things we’ve been up
Our new puppy Ducky is growing and we enjoy him so much. He had a few health problems when we got him but those have cleared up.
We think he is cute as can be ❤️
I have slowed down on couponing, partly because of winter weather and mostly because we are just stocked up from previous couponing deals. And that is a good situation to have.
I only went to CVS once, and that was because some of my Extracarebucks were going to expire.
Below - I got 4 boxes of Lipton black tea- my favorite
Physicians formula foundation
2 bags of popcorn for grands to snack on
2 bags of cashews
After coupons and Extracarebucks, I spent $3.84 cash and saved 91% 😍
I left with a $7 extracarebuck for future deals.
I went to 1 thrift store this month.
I bought this brand new Brighton bag for $3. It almost matches our breakfast nook curtains.
The black and white checks are 3 yards of 60 inch wide woven fabric, I don’t think it’s wool but if feels almost like wool. $5
The green netting was .25 and I 'll use it to make bathroom scrubbers for cleaning.
One freebie I did and I’m pretty it is still available is for a free glass spray bottle, handy if you make any homemade cleaners.
I’m pretty sure it is USA only. Just use the link to sign up, no payment information is asked for
I never switched our little white tree from winter decorations to Valentines
But I did just change it to St. Patrick’s Day.
I had a few decorations and I printed off a few more free printables found on Pinterest.
It was fun to work with glitter and glue
Our granddaughter’s school was closed for a couple of days because of a gas leak. She went to work with her dad one day and one day she stayed with us.
She helped grandpa start some seeds for his spring garden.
The biggest thing during the past month was my husband and I flew to California.
We went to see a friend graduate from Marine Corps boot camp. It was huge ceremony and so special to see all the traditions at MCRD in San Diego. My husband graduated there in 1975 and went to Recruiters school there in 1986.
We stayed in a beach cottage aboard Camp Pendleton and we spent much of time seeing places where we lived, worked and shopped way back when we were stationed there.
This is a base home we lived in for 3 years.
And another home we were in for 1 year.
There are not many Quonset huts left aboard Camp Pendleton
This was cove, protected by jetties on both sides just outside our beach cottage
Inside our cottage......
And our view every evening
It’s been a mostly good month ❤️
