Fun Times

One of my favorite things to do is crochet. I learned right after my grandmother died, my senior year of high school because I wanted to learn in her honor. She had tried to teach me when I was in middle school the same time my other grandmother tried to teach me to knit. Man it got confusing! :-) I started out small and did scarfs and hot pads, but I have slowly started to finish some blankets.

Check out this new baby blanket!

And the mother to be with the beautiful blanket!

Ground Steak for $0.36 a pound -- Delivered to your door

FYI -- Apparently too many of us frugal people got in on the deal and now the minimum is being reported as spending $100. So I'm sorry for those of you who didn't jump at the chance for cheap meat. Mine says it was shipped -- I'll let you know if/when I get it.

This is one of the best deals I've gotten in a while. I first read about it at imommies.com and then at http://www.moneysavingmom.com/then I tweaked it a little. I was able to get 14 Omaha burger patties, a cutlery set, and a cutting board shipped for only $1.98. You can too.

Here's how:
1. First go here and register for Geico Privileges. You don't have to be a Geico customer. Within an hour or so they will send you an email with a gift card code for $25 off any Omaha purchase.
2. Then click thru this link and click on the coupon code that says "Free hamburgers, cutlery, and cutting board". It should be the second link.
3. At Omaha steaks put anything into your cart that equals at least $12.99. I ordered the 8 5 oz. Omaha Steaks Burgers.
4. Go to checkout. It will add in $13.99 for shipping but your $25 code from Omaha will take it off.
5. You can even pay with paypal funds if you want!
6. My total was $1.98.

This is amazing because if you calculate it out I'm getting ground steak for $0.36 a pound delivered straight to my door.

I should be receiving this on the 24th or earlier. I'll definatly be writing a review when I get this!

E.L.F. Makeup

Wanted to let you all know that I received my E.L.F. make-up in the mail and am very excited to start using it, but I actually received a review on one of my posts of this makeup and wanted to share it with you!

Coupon Queen,I tried this makeup and I love it! I usually use Clinique, Ester Lauder or Clarins which are very pricey. The mineral blush and eye makeup (which was a little more --$5 and $3) are incredible! I am a redhead with very fair skin. I ordered the elegance and sweet eyeshadow colors which are very light. The blush is "Joy" which is very light pink (The colors they show for both are not accurate. Anyway, they look wonderful, natural, and the liquid makeup is very light feeling. The brushes are worth a great deal more than $1--they are soft and professional. I recommend everyone jumping on board and getting some while it is sooo cheap!

Hope this will help some of you decide whether or not to check it out. I'll let you know as soon as I try mine out, but I agree with the brushes comment, I haven't used them yet, but they look AMAZING!

Cheap Makeup

I got this from a friend, and they told me that Nordstrom was making all of their makeup $1 because they were changing the logo. Do I know if that is correct --- NO. But what I do know is that you can get many items for a dollar or even 15 items for $15 at http://www.eyeslipsface.com/ You have to check it out, it has some amazing products! If you spend $15 make sure and type the coupon code CAROLINA in, because you can save $7.50.

So here's what I did: I found 15 items that I liked. I put them in the cart, I then used the code CAROLINA, and after shipping I still got my 15 items for $14.45. Not a bad deal if you ask me. Anyway -- I'll let you know about the makeup when I get it, but if nothing else it could make great stocking stuffers. Check it out and give me your feedback!

4 Things

My cousin Jamey tagged me on his blog to write 4 things that I hate to admit. Well I can't not do this so here goes nothing.

1. I hate to admit that if I could I would never wear make-up, throw my hair up in a ponytail, and wear sweats or athletic shorts and a T-Shirt everyday for the rest of my life.

2. I hate to admit that I'm addicated to finding the best price at all costs. This means I spend a WHOLE lot of time with my coupons and my sales ads.

3. I hate to admit it, but I love getting mail. Any kind at that!

4. I hate to admit it, but I love to act like I'm a racecar driver when driving ANYWHERE! Watch out Southeast MO!

So I have to tag some people: Beth, Sam, and Bret -- its your turn since you guys haven't posted in forever!!
