Welcome to my blog about yard sales, crochet, my family and my life. A yard sale map in one hand and a crochet hook in the other.

Hot weather is here!

It has finally hit 90 degrees here in SC! I heard the weatherman say this morning that it has been 8 months since we hit 90 degrees! Although it is hot, the sunshine is beautiful and the boys finally got to go swimming yesterday and are going to go after ball practice this afternoon,

My son gave me this hibiscus for Mother's Day..

Micki and the boys went with me yard saling yesterday. Plenty of yard sales, but I am not looking for baby stuff! Seems that's all anyone is selling this year! I have been looking for a nice bed, but haven't found one yet. This year is all about reading and books for me. I found a "few" books by my favorite author, Debbie Macomber....

Just a few  :-)  I found a radio for $2 and another trinket box..

Have you been watching Extreme Couponer's on TLC? While I think it is crazy to buy 100 deoderants or 50 toothpaste, they do give some good tips. Bilo and Harris-Teeter were having good sales this week. Along with the buy-one-get-one items, Harris Teeter had 'buy 2, get 3 free' on Pepsi products and potato chips. So, Janet, Micki, and I went to stock up for the 4th cookout, baseball party, and the rest of the summer.

This was the first time that I actually saved some money using coupons! I  saved $64.67 at Bilo and $83.46 at Harris Teeter!

We are going to start scouring the sales papers more closely and save together. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I seem to have developed "bloggers-block" . For some reason I am not interested about checking the blogs. Have any of you had this problem? I'll be glad when I get my 'mojo' back! Until then, please don't forget me, because I will not forget you. Have a great week!

Charlotte! This is wonderful!!!! Hey! Saving $1.00 is better than nothing girl!!! I must say you have the coolest yard! I bet everyone loves staying at your house! I've had no energy to go to yard sales this year and with gas with as much as it cost I just have no desire at all!

Take care girl!!
