Still need a lunch bag for your kiddo's?

I had these insulated lunch sacks from the Gerber house party I did. I didn't want to just toss them so I decided to make my 2nd grader a custom lunch sack. I let her pick it all out so it's not what I would have picked but she's in love with it.

Super easy to do!

1. Bag, heat and bond and fabric


Iron on one side of head and bond to back of fabric
Draw the shape you want on back of head and bond(remember to do it backwards if it is a letter)

Cut and peel off other side of heat and bond and iron to bag.
My daughter wanted layers and an S over the wave design. We added a really easy flower decoration to the top as well. You will want to hand stitch or sew around the applique to make sure it will stay in place. I was able to hand stitch this bag which even is insulated.
Have fun!!

Monday, August 15, 2011

My walgreens and target day!!

Some of you asked that I lay this out step by step to make it easier.
Here's what I did today...

Trip 1 Walgreen....(previous RR-registe rewards that I had 11.00)
Transaction 1~ Huggies diapers 9.49-3.00 Coupon found on Krazycouponlady.com - 6.00 in Register rewards. Now, you have to have as many items as coupons, so I found these random pencils in the clearance isle for .20 each. total cost was 1.23 Rcieved 2.00 in Register Rewards

Transaction 2-2 packs of special K shakes 10.00 -5.00 in manufa coupons(cut of boxes from a few months ago.) Used one 5.00 RR so I paid just the tax. .36 Recieved 5.00 in Register rewards

Transaction 3~I now have 7.00 in RR.
revlon fingernail polish 2.00 walgreen coupon(found in store coupon book, or my cosmetic counter has it sitting there to scan. so ends up 1.99 BUT you get a 3.00 register reward so it's a money maker.
huggies diapers again 9.49-3.00 coupon as mentioned above.
pencil .20 to make it 3 items. .89 Recieved 5.00 in RR

*note, you have to pay tax before coupons with walgreens so their totals come out really weird

Than I hit target. There was a mailer that came out with all diff coupons for back to school.
We got TONS free since there wasn't a size limit on most of them. Since they were out of the 12 pack of glustick she let me use my coupon  on getting smaller packages which were on sale for much cheaper.

They also had coupons for toothbrushes, toothpaste, bandaids...and so on.

Walgreens 2nd trip I have 5.00 in RR and found another one for 2.00 in my coupon folder(its's like gold)
Transaction 1 deoderant-lady speed stick. onsale 2/5.00. but you get a 3.00 RR. so came out paying .32 tax and a 3.00 RR.

Transaction 2
sund detergent 3.00
All detergent on sale 3.00 (instead of 7.99)
toilet paper on sale 4.00 with walgreens q and then add manufactures q 3.25
total cost 4.89

grand total for the day is 7.69. The picute is before the more diapers, deoderant, and such. You get the idea.
If you have questions, feel free to comment and I will try and answer them.

Entering away!!

I have spent a few hours getting all my codes entered that I needed to catch up on.

Kelloggs Cars 2 promo-there are codes inside the cereal boxes and other marked snacks. I just cashed in for 3 5.00 visa gift cards that should be here soon.

Mycokerewards.com-Remember last year they did the half off price so 50.00 gift cards were only 1000 points. Start saving now. I added a ton today. ;)

Huggies enjoy the ride- I don't stock pile these. I just play the instant games as I enter codes. I did win movie tickets and a kohls gift card once. So worth a couple minutes to try.

Box tops cutting-KEEP saving those box tops. Remember they sell for good money on ebay. you should be able to get about 12.00 per 100 box tops. (they add up pretty fast if you stay ontop of it.)

Disney movie rewards- go through all your disney movie and enter the rewards on disneymovierewards.com for free movies, and other fun stuff.

I also was able to cash in for 3 gift cards on swagbucks today.

Phewww, it was a good day!!!

Let's talk frugal...

I have fallen a bit behind in talking about deals and frugality lately. Let me catch  you up on a few things I have been doing. I have been scanning for resale like CRAZY!!! We are coming up on the end of the semester for both of us(financial aid is running out), and we have all the kids bdays, our bdays, valentines, easter, anniversary...and so on.
So one thing I did was after Christmas I got tons of the clearance stuff. Lots of little goodies for the kids for less than .25. I have a stock pile and on valentines day I will do a basket for each with the goodies. Cost me about 2.00 a kid and it's a good amount of stuff. So after monday do the same with valentines clearance for Easter. Just take of packaging or repackage. THEY DON'T CARE. ;)
I also do the same for goodie bags for bdays.
Have I told you about houseparty yet? http://www.houseparty.com/
I LOVE IT. So far I have done Mcdonalds, Febreeze and Gerber. My kids are still eating gerber snacks and food from months ago. I just got picked to do a pull-ups one. I AM SO EXCITED. You should look into to it for free stuff and having parties.
My other big money maker is resell. I have been scanning consignment stores and retails stores. They can be a gold mine. I bought a couple gap outfits yesterday. It cost me 22.00. I sold it over night for 86.00. Also a Janie and Jack outfit I found for 10.00 sold for 25.00.
I was at Gap kids a couple weekends ago and they were price killing their socks. They had 6 packs for 1.97 with another 40% off. I bought 18 packs of socks. I  made $100.00 profit on selling them. I am able to buy my 18 month old her big girl bed from socks and consignment finds.
So many people ask how we are doing it with 2 full time students, 3 kids, a non profit, ebay business, training for triathlons and so on....
This is how. YOU CAN DO IT TOO. Please feel free to ask me any questions. And as I find things that are working I will share them.
Happy Hunting.

Answers to your groupit questions...

Keep them coming and enter away. You have 2 more days.
Here are some of the comments left:

GroupIt Question: What types of payment do they accept: which credit cards, paypal?
GroupIt Feedback: They should have a Link to How it Works on their main page not just when you start to use it.
GroupIt Feedback: Sounds like a great idea. Maybe I'll try it for a baby shower I'll be hosting soon.
GroupIt Question: Are there a specific list of retailers you can choose from only? A list of those would be nice.
GroupIt Feedback: a video tutorial of how it works would probably help more people want to try it out.
Another comment - "all the same questions I had . Great feedback."
GroupIt Question: Do you see how much each person contributed or just the total? I don't think people would like having others know how much they contributed.
I would like to know how they collect the money? Is it all through Paypal?
We accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover credit cards for payment. We’ll soon have PayPal as a payment option as well.
Here is a link to a recent baby shower that raised $295 within a few hours. Saved the organizer a huge pain of collecting from everyone. https://www.groupit.com/gift/show?gift_hash=c9e1074f5b3f9fc8ea15d152add07294
You can select any item from any retailer to list on your Groupit. When the Groupit closes, you collect the money via PayPal or a check.
We agree! A video tutorial of the product would be great. We’ll get working on that!
The individual contributions made are kept confidential.

Collecting money for a Group Gift just got a lot easier with Groupit.com!
Perfect for:
•Baby Showers
•Wedding Showers
•Class gifts
•and more!
With Groupit, you don’t have to front the cash for a big gift and then chase everyone down for collection. You can organize and collect on an awesome gift quickly and easily.
Here is an example of the product in action:
A woman in California threw a baby shower and invited 45 women to attend. Instead of enduring the nightmare of tracking everyone down and collecting checks and cash for a group gift, she decided to use Groupit. Only hours after sharing the link, she had raised $295 ($110 more than the Car Seat they had selected). No running around collecting, no awkward face to face interactions asking for money. Pretty awesome. She were thrilled with the result. Take a look: Baby Shower Groupit
If you ever find yourself organizing groups of people and money, Groupit is going to be a huge time saver. (and a lot more fun!)

rag headbands...

I'm officially addicted to making these headbands. I love them. These are ones I made out scrap fabric.
They are SOOOOO easy. Cause we all know, I only do easy!
Material needed~
glue gun
fabric scraps

Take a small piece of felt and cut it the shape you want your flower to be. Start on the edge anywhere. Glue the end of the fabric scrap. Twist and glue as you go. DONE! Add any center or fancy accessories you want.
I'm going to try it with old t-shirt material next!
Have FUN!!!

Random.org picked a winner and it is....

Mandy!!! Congrats Mandy. Email me your address @ eastmanfamily44@yahoo.com
and I will get it all shipped out!!!

Need extra cash? Start selling spring and summer!!

I've been so busy trying to get these all up and going in the same time. Time to start thinking about cleaning out those closets.
Take to consignment shop, eBay, or even some kids resell sales are great. Pull out last spring and summer! yes, they are in full swing to get selling.
Check it out...
Someone asked me how I decide to sell and so forth. I divide into piles. eBay, consignment shop, and then giveaway. If something doesn't sell on eBay it goes in the consignment bag, then if the consignment shop doesn't buy it, I give it away.
I have learned that I really only like to take stuff to consignment shops that give me the cash right there. Then you don't have to go back and check if your stuff sold or not. Kid to Kid has been great for me here in Utah. Check your area for one. Don't forget to look for coupons that will give you extra 20% cash or trade-in.
The best was I bought a ton of stuff on clearance at Old Navy and took it took the consignment shop. I paid .97 -30% coupon so .67 for shoes, tops, and so on. They had a huge shopping cart full.  I averaged 2.35 per piece from the shop. I made 30.00 on the way home from Old Navy. Find your nitch and see if you can make it work for you!!
Have fun and good luck!
