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!!

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!!!
