Stocking Stuffers

Thanks to this link from imommies, I hunted all around Sears for some stocking stuffers for Matt. The coupon gets you $5 off a purchase of $5. You wouldn't believe how many little odds and ends in the lawn/garden and tool sections fall in that range! I had a BLAST!! The coupon is only limited to one per purchase, so I just asked for each transaction to be totaled separately (and had a stack of printed coupons on hand). The other great news is that the coupon works on sale prices AND it's good until Jan. 22! Take advantage of after-Christmas tool sales, too!!

Here's a picture of what I got for Matt. A few things were under $5, so I had a stack of $1 items as well to bring to the total to the right amount. :) Altogether, I paid $7.84. Without the coupons, the total would have been around $35 (with the sale prices, more if the items had not been on sale)! Praise the Lord for a SUPER FUN and FRUGAL way to fill my hubby's stocking!

November Came and Went!

Sorry for the utter lack of posting in November...

My mom came to visit, which was WONDERFUL!

Then it was my birthday. :)

Then Matt's dad came down to help us remodel our den.

We have just now put the computer back in its place and still have some things to put back.

Now I am working on a Christmas project I would LOVE to post (it's killing me, really), but the person for whom I am making the gift might click through to here. So, I will post it after Christmas, I promise.

In the meantime, here are some remodel pictures, and soon I'll post some of our Christmas decor!

Have a blessed Advent season, and thanks for hanging in there with me while I was "missing."
