The total out of pocket was only $21.87! I saved 64% after sales and coupons! I have never spent so little for what we needed on a shopping trip, so I'm on a cloud right now. =)
I normally wouldn't have gotten the deoderant, since we're pretty stocked in that area, but I just couldn't beat free! I'm sure we'll be able to find someone in need!

I love that I’m raising girls. My girls are outside farmin’, softball scoopin’, football catchin’, climbin’ and jumpin’ girls…
but they are also pretend playin’, ballet dancin’, fairy-tale readin’, princess dressin’ girlies.
You know what else I love? Etsy shops run by sweet mamas. Buying quality, handmade items from real women. Supporting “from the ground up” businesses.
Kelly Joy Boutique is one such place. Beautiful, unique, “handmade flair for girls of all ages” direct from her shop to your door. Kelly recently sent us this cute little clip.
I’m crazy about the vintage-looking button pulling it all together. My girlies are crazy about the pink. And the flair. And the cute.
This week, Kelly is giving you a chance to win some cute! Take a glance around her shop and let me know what you’d buy with your $15 shop credit.
If you want to up your chances of winning… (leave a separate comment for each)
Random.org will draw a winner Sunday evening, August 15. Good luck!
Print a coupon for two “Like It” Creations from Coldstone Creamery for only $5.

Here are the before pictures.
After getting it all sanded down I realized that it was just a piece of plywood! I was really disappionted that it wasn't a solid piece of wood, but I thought I'd put some stain on it just to see how it would look.
When my sister-in-law was visiting us a couple weeks ago, we and my MIL decided to visit the Kitchen Aid store in Greenville (Greenville Ohio, there is a manufacturing plant there) Little did we know that Greenville was having their annual Annie Oakley days and the store was having some AWESOME sales! Deborah and I were so thrilled with what we saw that we had to come back the next day after she had talked to her husband and I had brought along my hubby! We both bought the Professional 600 series mixers (An employee told me that this is the largest home size that they make!) When you bought a mixer you got a cookbook, ice cream scoop, timer (these aren't some cheap items either!) and a choice btw the food grinder attachment, or the ice cream bowl/maker attachment FREE! We picked the ice cream bowl, since it was the highest value, and bought the grider attachment. (everything we bought that day came to less than half the price of the mixer itself, new!)
The mixer is refurbished (before you all get panicky let me explain =p) We were told that the refurbished items are actually better than the others! The new ones are fresh off the assembly line, whereas the refurbished ones have been tested, sent back and gone over personally and adjusted with a fine tooth comb.
As you can see from the picture, I broke it in with a good batch of chocolate chip cookies! =)

..........are some huge drawers from a bathroom reno back some 5 yrs ago. Hubby wanted to throw them in the trash but I said NOOOOO! Then I blurted out the old junkers' addage..." I'll do something with 'em, just don't touch 'em!!". You know the saying, you all said it! So I finally came up with a project I could use one drawer for. A giant ottoman/coffee table!!! Always wanted one,but could never afford one. So cut out a piece of plywood for the top, found some leftover foam from a previous project, bought some fabric and a few decorations and went to town!
