power is gained by sharing knowledge

Happy Monday!  It’s a dreary one over here in New England— what a shocking turn of events!  Not. 😂 We don’t close on our house until mid-March.  There is still time to go back to Wisconsin, right? 😄 Earlier today I decided that since Mondays already suck for all of us, why not go to […]

finally a sale I can get behind

I have never been a couponer, nor a bargain hunter, nor big on any kind of savings that I had to go out of my way to get.  As in, Kohl’s cash, and their 15%, 20%, & 30% off coupons they basically shoved down my throat in the mail each week were about as far […]
