    Today, I was able to buy five gift sets of perfume from Hedi Klum and Beyonce for 20.00. Walgreens had a 50% off sale. I brought two sets at 10.00 down from 19.99 and three sets at 7.49 down from 14.99. The origninal price came to 45.00. I had 5, five dollar coupons off for each of the sets. My total was 20.00. I found two more coupons an I plan to go to another Walgreens for other sets. Not bad, not bad at all. I will report back with my other findings. Stay tune.

    I had my youngest daughter help me wrap the presents for the school and also give me advice for the 15 and 17 year old clothes choices. We stuck with the $30 dollar sweaters as they are almost like outerwear and looked better than some of the cheaper ones. My husband helped me deliver to the school. The younger kids ended up getting 2 full outfits each. He was happy that I was able to get them so much for the amount I spent. I also found quality merchandise from Carter and Osh Kosh. My big project ...
