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 was your weekend? I had the kid’s birthday party and THANK GOODNESS it didn’t rain! It was a bit windy, but it was gorgeous and sunny. The kids ran around in the backyard, played on the waterslide and the birthday boy and girl had so much fun! I bought an expensive set of face paints and painted the kids faces, we ordered pizza from Dominos (50% off all orders!) and I made a big batch of this Southwest Quinoa Salad for the parents (always a hit!). Unfortunately I didn’t take as many photos as I usually do! Too busy having fun, I suppose.
Yesterday morning I headed out early in the morning – by myself – picked up a latte (a rare treat for me!) and went to Goodwill for a little treasure-searching. I’m so hooked on thrift shopping lately and it is a fun, frugal activity for me. I found this Little Tikes EasyStore Large slide for $14.99 – it retails for $99 on the Little Tikes website! Oh, and that cute pink/striped dress my daughter is wearing – also a Goodwill find – she picked it out herself, after finding it was the tag color on sale for $1.29! Follow me over on Instagram – I usually post my secondhand deals there!
And I’m not the only one finding great secondhand deals lately. Last night I shared this deal April sent in – she scored Hunter rain boots for $24.99 – these retail for close to $150 regular price! I also had a bunch of people share deals over on Facebook – so many of you are saving by shopping secondhand – I love it!!
The Great Wolf Lodge giveaway ended last night and I picked the winner! Karen already claimed her prize and she’s so excited to take her little girls! Thank you to everyone who entered!
