Target Trip

Ran to Target with Mom today and picked up a few great deals! There is a $4.00 coupon available online for any Hungry Hungry Hippos game (also lists a few other games), you can use it on the travel size version which only costs $4.99 at Target! Also, Glade Scented Oil candles in the pretty tins are on sale for $1.66, and many of them have $1.50 off coupons right inside! Can’t beat $0.16 for a great smelling candle! My total for this purchase was only $2.24, and $0.77 of that was tax!! Nice 🙂 The HHH game will be put aside for a Christmas present for one of the kiddos, and the candles are burning as we speak….ahh, I love the smell of clean linen candles!

Knitting news

I recently finished knitting a scarf for a swap I was in on Craftster. I used the Karaoke Cable Scarf pattern, and Patons Classic Merino wool in a beautiful green (it was a Twilight swap, and I chose the green to represent the lush greenery that is Forks!). I’ve worked with cables once or twice, but this is hands down the most cabling I’ve ever done. It was so simple, and the effect was awesome! I forgot to snap a picture before sending it out, so I had to wait for my swap partner to post one before I could share. I will definitely be making more for Christmas presents!

Fun mail day!

I love getting mail, and sign up for all the free samples I can find. After all, most of them come with coupons! Todays haul was quite impressive! I’m a member of Psst! , a General Mills community that occasionally sends out samples and coupons. Today I received a box containing a full size package of Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters (they are delicious!!) along with 10 coupons for $1.60 off! That is definitely one of the best samples I’ve received! I also received two cereal samples, Kashi Honey Sunshine (with a $2.00 off coupon), and Total Blueberry Pomegranate (with a $.75 coupon), both of which are quite tasty. Rounding out the day was a set of samples from Always/Tampax (including a coupon for a totally free box of Always Infinity!) and a Parents magazine. The magazine stumps me, as I’ve never requested a subscription, and yet have received one in the mail, addressed to me, for the past 2 or 3 months. Hmm?
