Sunday Ramblings 6/19/2011

Here we are again another Sunday and time for some rambling! As most of you know I am a crafter. So my question for this week is if you craft then what is your favorite crafting tool?

I must say that mine has to be my cricut(s). Yes I own more than one in fact I own three cricuts. I love them. They are all different from each other one prints and cuts, one is the first one I bought and just cuts and the newest one is the anniversary edition with tons of new features.

I use my cricuts a lot. I go through blades pretty quickly since I usually cut on average 30 of each image I cut. That is a lot of cutting.

Stockpile Saturday

This is yet a new feature for my blog, Stockpile Saturday! This feature will consist of articles about and related to stockpiles. It will show what we were able to stockpile for the week and some good resources on stockpiling. Some may equate stockpiling to hording but if done right then it is not hording but a step towards sustainable living. In its essence a stockpile is ensuring that your family has the means to survive emergencies, tragedies and other disasters.
This week we were able to get two fabulous deals at Publix. The first was Duncan Hines cake mixes. They are BOGO this week and we had B2G1 coupons meaning for $1.99 we could get 6 cake mixes. Since we buy multiple papers we were able to buy 24 boxes of cake mixes! AWESOME!
Deal number two came from me having a strangle hold on some blinkies I got a few months ago. They were a $1/2 cans of tomatoes. This week they are on BOGO at Publix so I was able to get two 28oz cans for 87 cents! So I got 8! We use tomatoes a lot so this was a superb deal for us.
Here is a look at what we got for $23.00 that would have cost $68 not pictured is the sweet potato fries that Publix has a hard time keeping on the shelf they are by Ore Ida and are yummy and there is a $1/1 coupon out there for them so we get them whenever we can find them.
Here is a look at the small stockpile in my room.
Yep that is a lot of cake mixes!

Mega Deal Monday Premier

Well this is the second new feature for the blog this week! YAY, summer allows me more time to devote to my blog since I am unemployed during the summer. So here goes the second new feature, called Mega Deal Monday or simply MDM. What I will do is feature something that I feel is a Mega Deal. You will want to check in every Monday to see what it is.
This weeks Mega Deal is Coke Rewards. Do you save the lids off coke bottles? Ever wonder what those numbers and letters are for? Well they are redeemable at and they are a great way to get FREE stuff.
Now we all like FREE stuff right? Who doesn't! But you may be asking yourself what kind of FREE stuff can I get? Well for 30 points (lids are worth 3 pts each and box flaps are 10 pts each) you can get a coupon for a FREE 16 oz coke or power aid no shipping cost at all totally FREE!! You could spend a bit more points and get a coupon for a 12 pack of coke for 240 points. And that is not all they offer there are magazine subscriptions, towels, promo items, tickets to movies, tons of FREE stuff!
I personally do not drink soft drinks but there are two cokeaholics in my household who keep us in points. You are allowed to register 120 points per week every Monday starts a new week. There are no limits on how many you can redeem each week.
So don't throw those lids or box flaps away till you turn in those codes. You can get FREE stuff and everyone loves FREE stuff!

Sunday Ramblings

Hey everyone its me again! I am going to start a new series of blog postings, called Sunday Ramblings. Mostly it is an attempt to get my followers (you wonderful folks) to interact with my posts. I will pose a question each Sunday that I will invite all my followers to answer.

So lets jump right in. This weeks question is (drum roll please) What do you put on you corn on the cob? It is summer and corn on the cob never tastes better than in the summer. I love butter and pepper on my ears of corn. But lately I have discovered something even better, I have been using butter still but I have switched to using Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Seasonings Original Mixed-Up Salt. This stuff is fantastic! It is a mix of salt, herbs and spices, dried onion and dried garlic. You can use it on anything but it is out of this world on corn on the cob!

So here is your question lets here what you like on your ear of corn! Are you a straight butter and salt person or do you like to shake it up with herbs and spices or even cheese?
