Friday's Fave Five

A few blessings in my life this week:

  1. Seeing yellow daffodils blooming. So bright and sunny! They always open up right around my birthday, so I have always though they're my b'day gift from God.

  2. My nephew, his fiance, and her father stayed with us this week. They spent a lot of time meeting with advisors at MSU and searching for an apt in Springfield. But we enjoyed the little bit of time we got with them. Sweet kids.

  3. Met a few other homeschool moms from this area. We've only been here a few short months and he winter had left us feeling pretty lonely. Such a blessing to meet new friends :)

  4. My mom finished writing her first book! She dedicated it to my Dad. I know he would be so proud of her.

  5. My husband knew I was having a crummy day and suprised me with my birthday present early...a new netbook!! So nice to be mobil again.

Spring Cleaning - Finding Coupons

A great place to go to find coupons for particular items that you might actually USE, is straight to your computer. Most brands have a website and/or a facebook page.

Take advantage of that! Usually, you'll be able to find exclusive coupons, special offers, sample offers, even tips and recipes.

Become their "fan" on facebook. Sign up to receive special offers.

What I have done, to keep from clogging up my email inbox, is set up a separate email address that I can use just for those types of things.

Today, I've compiled a list of several name-brand help you SAVE on all your spring cleaning products.


Scrubbing Bubbles

Seventh Generation


Here are some great printable coupons: (Quickly find them by clicking on “household” on the left hand side!)
