Rise and Shine August 28 – Rubbermaid sale, NFL rugs, Frozen backpack, Sonic corn dogs 50 cents Today only

Rise-Shine-Queen-Bee Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. Hello-Kitty-face-painting Good morning! How is it going today? Yesterday we kept busy with doctors and dentists appointments for both the kids in the morning, running errands, living room carpet cleaned and then a preschool open house for my littlest. They had the best face painter I’ve seen in all the times we’ve been to fairs, zoos, parties and festivals – check out that Hello Kitty! That masterpiece lasted about 7 minutes before she took a bite of a huge piece of watermelon slice and wiped that grin right off Hello Kitty’s face. :) But it didn’t matter because we were having all kinds of fun in the sun and it was a great end to a busy day. Starting later this afternoon we should start seeing some exciting online sales. Labor Day weekend seems to be the turning point toward better discounts online – with steep discounts and crazy deals through Christmas.

Good morning! How’s it going this morning? Only five more days until September. It still feels like mid-summer here with the weather being so warm.

Last night I made a new slow cooker meal for dinner and it ended up being a big hit. I started with this recipe for Angel Chicken. And because we had a lot of baby bella mushrooms in the fridge, I sliced them and sautéed those up in a little olive oil and garlic before adding them to the slow cooker – I think it makes a huge difference in the flavor. I also used regular cream cheese (8 oz), 1/3 cup of wine, cream of chicken soup and I didn’t brown the chicken ahead of time because it was frozen. I don’t think you can mess this one up. I shredded the chicken and served over rice. I wish it didn’t have so much sodium/packaged items in it – and I bet I can modify the recipe more when I have more time, but it worked for last night!

A lot of times I’ll do a Google search with some of the key ingredients I want to use and try something new. Then I modify based on what I have or don’t have in the house. Do you ever do this? What did people do before they were able to Google cooking advice? ;)

After dinner, the kids and I watched Heidi with Shirley Temple. I watched so many Shirley Temple movies when I was little and it was fun to watch this with my kids. My son said, “I loved it, even if it was all black and white!” And I love the lesson that Heidi shares, if you want something enough – you can do it! It’s free right now on Amazon Prime. What are some of your favorite Amazon Prime movies?

smoothies-kiddos

The weather has continued to be gorgeous this week! This summer our weather here in the Northwest has been unreal! Hoping this doesn’t mean we are in for a rough winter.  After hours of playing in the dirt and water yesterday the kids came in for smoothies and dinner last night. That would be smoothie and dirt all over her face. :) The smoothie had orange juice, frozen blueberries and frozen strawberries, Tillamook greek vanilla yogurt (markdown!), one banana and a little bit of water.

Freeze-juice-muffin-tins-smoothies.jpg

When I find orange juice on markdown (or quick sale), I like to freeze it into small chunks for smoothies! I generally freeze it in muffin pans, so it’s about 1/4 – 1/2 cup measurements. We don’t usually have juice in the fridge – so this is an easy way to have it on hand for smoothies. The same goes for fruit when we find it on sale – you can freeze most fruit and just toss it into the smoothie when you’re ready!

Good morning! Monday. Monday. Monday. I know a lot of you might have kids starting school this week – is it the first day of school for you today? Our schools don’t start until next week. These last few days of summer will be busy with dentist and doctor appointments for the kids, carpet cleaning, school open house, and more.

Seattle-Seahawks-vs-Bears

We had a fun weekend. Last Friday I went to my first ever Seahawks game (first professional football game). I had to be in Seattle for an ABC television news segment on back-to-school deals and we found an amazing deal on the Seahawks tickets through Ticketmaster, so we made a night of it!  This picture is the first (and not the last) touchdown of the night. So exciting. :) I’ve wanted to go for a very long time. We got the tickets through ticket exchange on Ticketmaster – which I think is where season ticket holders can sell their tickets – so from what I can tell we paid only a fraction of the face value.

Best-School-Supply-Deals-side-bar

And speaking of back-to-school deals, yesterday we published the latest list of school supply deals at our local stores. There are still some fantastic deals to be had in terms of school supplies.

Goodwill-jeans-bogo-sale-august-24

And speaking of fantastic deals. . .Sunday morning I couldn’t help but head to Goodwill for the newest sale. This week my local stores has denim buy one, get one FREE. I found a pair of jeans for EACH person in the family for $13.49 out of pocket – that’s just $3.37 a pair. They all look and feel brand new and I scored high quality brands – GAP, Lands’ End, Abercrombie and Lee Dungaree. :) If you’re local, the BOGO sale runs all week and is all Goodwill stores in the Olympic and Rainier region (see their Facebook page here). Did you find any secondhand deals this weekend? I’d love to hear about it!

Israeli-couscous-tabboulah-rise-shine

We had our neighbors over for dinner last night. We grilled salmon that my mom caught this summer up in Alaska and I made this Israeli couscous tabbouleh salad. It went great with the fish – and I added chopped salad greens, plus a diced red and orange pepper. It was the first time I’d cooked Israeli couscous – it was something I had picked up at Trader Joe’s – the salad was so easy and so delicious I might just have to eat it for breakfast today. :) If you make it – don’t leave the mint out, I think that made the whole salad come together.

Whew! That was a sneak of our weekend. How was your weekend? What did you do?

Good morning! Happy FRIDAY! Do you have any plans this weekend? The kids stayed at Grammie’s house last night, one last hurrah before school starts and they can’t stay over as much. So Mr. Queen Bee and I picked up Indian food for dinner last night, watched the first show/episode of Sherlock Holmes (I think it’s going to be a great series, do you watch it?!) and then woke up and went for a 3-mile walk this morning together. Grateful for helpful Grammies, early morning walks and simple date nights with my husband. :)

Seahawks-gift-cards-Mcdonalds

While I was over at Grammie’s yesterday she showed me these new McDonald’s gift cards she picked up! These Seahawks McDonald’s gift cards are probably only sold in Western Washington locations, but would make great door prizes for Seahawks game parties! You can load any value on them. If you haven’t gotten the memo yet, we are completely crazy and we have family Seahawks parties, nearly every game, with my husband’s extended family. We have drawings at every quarter for door prizes. The parties are usually potluck style and everyone contributes to prizes. :) So although I’m not a fan of McDonald’s per se, they could make an awesome gift for someone who is. I hope that Starbucks brings back their Starbucks Seahawks gift cards – those are something I could really rally behind again!

Amazon-Subscribe-Save-Buy-3-get-1-august-9-2014

Good morning! We are rounding the corner to the weekend. How are you doing? Do you have kids back in school yet? Are you getting ready for back-to-school? I’d love to hear what you’re up to this week!

I think I’m seeing an uptick in the quality of online deals this week. Generally this picks up in the fall and will last through the holidays. I try to find deals that are competitive and that offer FREE shipping, whenever possible. Amazon should really start to pick up this next month, with lots of rock-bottom prices.

Seahawk-Crockpots-on-sale

I’m such a crazy fan of the Seahawks that I finally bit the bullet and ordered myself a Seahawks Crock-Pot. I wanted one all last season – my husband’s aunt ordered one last year and it’s awesome. Right now Crock-Pot is offering 25% off all NFL Crock-pots with code TRAINDAY25 at checkout, making the NFL Crock-pots  as low as $22.46. They have all the NFL teams to choose from. Shipping is not free, but it seemed reasonable, especially if you go in with a friend on the order (it’s about $8 to have two Crock-pots shipped). See my post from yesterday with details about the NFL Crock-pot sale. I look forward to sharing more Crock-pot recipes this winter using this!

Broccoli-Sausage-Stir-Fry-(2)

Remember those marked down mushrooms I picked up late last week? Those went into this Broccoli and Sausage stir fry for dinner last night. This recipe is really easy to whip up and with broccoli on sale it’s a great time to make it. I usually buy the sausage at Costco, but I also look for brands like Aidell’s at the grocery store when it’s on markdown, too.

Puzzles-with-my-girl

Good morning! I feel like we are rounding the corner toward the busy time of fall and I’m trying to soak in as much “summer” as we can before it’s a distant memory. We’re also trying to get things done that will hopefully make the fall go as smooth as possible. In just a couple weeks my husband (a high school teacher) and my kids go back to  school/preschool. My handsome husband also coaches high school football (starting this week!) – which means really, really long days for him - and a little bit of craziness around here through at least October.

Yesterday my helpful hubby went through kids shoes and got rid of all the ones they grew out of this summer (Seriously, how do they grow so fast??). He also cleaned out the fridge – washing all the drawers, wiping down the shelves, and throwing away anything questionable. I cleaned out the freezer (read my tips for organizing your freezer), went to the Franz Outlet store to stock up on bread for school sandwiches (it looked a little something like this and into the clean freezer it went) and stopped into Grocery Outlet for school lunch supplies. The kids got covered from head to toe playing in mud in the backyard, completed a puzzle that we got at Goodwill this weekend ($1.49 for a Ravensburger!!) and we all ended the day with a game of Monopoly (a game my son wants to play EVERY single hour of the day now that he learned).

Pumpkin-Spice-Latte

And apparently it’s officially fall next week because that’s when Starbucks brings back the Pumpkin Spice Latte. I just want to know when I can start wearing boots and scarves again – because that’s all I really want in life. Especially the scarves part.

Butterfly-girl

Good morning! How was your weekend??? Ours was good. We spent most of the weekend running errands and hanging out around the house. We had a family barbecue yesterday and the kids found this butterfly that just loved them! It was content just sitting on their arm or shoulder and it did this for a long time before we put him back on a flower. It was awesome and I loved watching my kids revel in the beauty of this butterfly up close and personal. :)

Monopoly-night

We taught our 7-year-old how to play Monopoly and he won both times we played this weekend. And now we get asked if want to play Monopoly about 12 times a day. I love it – I played so many games with my sister growing up! I share a lot of our personal stories and photos over on Instagram, if you’re over there.

Chairs-Goodwill-August-17

And of course I just had to hit up Goodwill this weekend and was tickled to find these chairs on sale buy one, get one FREE. Ended getting all four chairs for $12 – or $3 each! I can’t wait to give them a makeover. I love the paint color but it’s chipping, so I have to figure that out. And I can’t wait to reupholster the chairs with a funky print.

Manager-Markdowns-QFC-August-14

Good morning! Yesterday I went grocery shopping at QFC and I was so thrilled to find a bunch of manager markdowns! Nearly everything in my cart was 50 – 70% off thanks to being on quick sale. Salad mixes, yogurts, produce, organic milk and even local NW italian sausage all great deals, without the use of any coupons! My local QFC is pretty generous about their markdowns, with at least a few days before the sell by or expiration date – and with the meat it can be frozen right away and thawed when ready to use.

Sausage-One-pot-pasta-dish

Last night for dinner I took the marked down sausages, mushrooms and canned tomatoes from my QFC trip and made this one-pot pasta dish from Budget Bytes. I changed the recipe around – putting in four sausages, 14 ounces of mushrooms, two cans of diced tomatoes with onions/garlic, three cloves of garlic and I used penne pasta. I also added a tbsp of dried parsley and a tbsp of dried oregano. Topped with fresh parmesan. It was delicious and I love how inexpensively it came together thanks to the manager markdowns! We have lots of leftovers for today.

Goodwill-50-off-books-August-14

Yesterday afternoon I stopped by Goodwill and found 48 books for around $12. A quarter each! Crazy. This is part of a 50% off books and media sale that my local Goodwill branch is having for back-to-school. My purchase even included Brain Quest cards (my kids love these) and unused school workbooks for Geography and Letters/Sounds – perfect for both my kiddos. My son was thrilled to see I found Pokemon novels, which are nearly impossible to find in our local library system. We spent most of yesterday reading and I always love finding good deals on books like this. This 50% off books/media sale goes until Saturday August 16 and is just the Tacoma stores. More details here.

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.

Good morning! How is your week going so far? Do you have kids heading back to school this fall? Have they started yet? What type of deals are you searching for – leave me a comment and I’ll do some sleuthing to find them for you! School for us doesn’t start until after Labor Day, but I’m already picking up school supplies (see the Best School Supply deals here) and clothing as I find it. I still need to give lunches a bit of thought and stock-up on easy lunch items - What are your favorite things to pack in your kids lunches? I’m always looking for new and creative ideas. My son loves fresh fruit/veggies, apple sauce, salami slices, crackers/cheese, granola bars, yogurt. . .pretty standard stuff, but I’d love to hear what your kids like!
