Rise and Shine September 30 – REI (super) sale, Great Wolf Lodge, Hobby Farms, cookware and cutlery, furniture pet protector, diamond rings, more


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! TGIF. . .lots going on today. Any plans today or this weekend? I’m home with a sick kiddo – sore throat, red eyes – hoping it’s just a virus but we’ll be spending the day snuggling on the couch watching cooking shows and movies (and posting deals, of course).

rei_garage-sept-30-550

My FAVORITE deal of the day today is this REI sale. The prices are really incredible because they are taking an EXTRA 25% off the clearance price. I picked up that KAVU hat (bottom left corner of photo) for my hubby for around $8 and I got some strappy Chaco leather sandals for about $33 (reg. $100!). You’ll also find kid’s rain boots for under $9.  See a round-up of deals and shop the REI sale here.

Living Social - Great Wolf Lodge

Yesterday Living Social rolled out Great Wolf Lodge discounts up to 50% off – as low as $119, depending on your location.  If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, the Grand Mound Great Wolf Lodge location in Washington has a ton of choices, starting as low as $159. There are locations nationwide!

This comes out to $1 a month (or 33 cents an issue!) – amazing price, this would retail for $48.99!  Valid through October 3. This deal is HOT!

Rise and Shine September 29 – National Coffee Day, HOT Honest Co sale, TOMS free shipping, big Kohl’s sale, mattress toppers, NFL and NCAA hats, more


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning!  How is it going today? Seems like there is a lot going on for deals right now! It feels so good to be back in the saddle again. Being back in a house has helped so much with my ability to get some steady time to blog and it feels really great to be connecting again with y’all after being a bit absent the last 15 months. I appreciate the break, I needed the break, but I’m happy to have my head in the game again. You are amazing for sticking with me. 🙂

rachael-ray-better-homes-martha-stewart

My favorite deal of the day (so far) is this magazine bundle! I have never seen an offer like this before from Discount Mags – right now they are offering Rachael Ray Everyday, Better Homes & Gardens & Martha Stewart all for only $12 with coupon code QUEENBEE at checkout. This comes out to $4 per subscription – amazing price, this would retail for $48.99! This comes out to $1/month (or $0.33/issue) for all three magazines – crazy!  I love Discount Mags, I use them exclusively for all my magazine subscriptions. This would be a wonderful gift idea.

amazon-coffee-day-promo

I just posted an Amazon coffee promotion after my own heart. To celebrate National Coffee Day (that’s today!), when you buy a select coffee maker, get a FREE bag of organic, fair trade Happy Belly coffee at checkout($9.99 value). They have coffee pots as low as $15.99 and I noticed it included other things like coffee urns, french presses, etc. This would be a cute gift combo perhaps?    To get the promotion – add a qualifying coffee maker to your cart AND add your choice of Happy Belly organic fairtrade coffee to your cart and enter code COFFEEDAY16 in the promo code box. The value of the coffee will be deducted!

There is a *HOT* offer right now from The Honest Co. – get 40% off your First Bundle when you use code EXTRA40 at checkout.  This is on top of the 35% savings that comes with the bundles to begin with.  I’ve been looking for a deal on Honest bubble bath since we are now living in a house with a bathtub again (yay!) and this turned out to be a HUGE deal for me. I ordered the Essentials bundle and changed my products to bubble bath and shampoo/conditioner products. My total after code EXTRA40 was just $ 22.52 shipped!

subscribe-save-sept-2017-550

I recently updated the list of BEST Amazon Subscribe & Save Deals – items as low as $1.03!  If you find yourself with only 4 orders in your S&S monthly order – sometimes adding an inexpensive order pays for itself because you go from 5% to 15% off – and it applies to ALL of your orders!

Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Hey friend! How’s it going today? I was online A LOT yesterday posting MANY great deals. Lots of offers, discounts and coupons right now. I hope you were able to take advantage of some of them.

wit-wisdom-ab-solution-skinny-jeans

My favorite deal already this morning are these Wit & Wisdom ‘Ab-solution’ Stretch Skinny Jeans on sale for $33.98 (reg. $68!). Aren’t they adorable? And the reviews are AMAZING. I’m seeing sizes 0 thru 16 available right now, but I’m guessing they will sell out fast. I really LOVE finding solid discounts on NICE brands – that really make it a good deal both in terms of financially but also the QUALITY you are getting. Also Nordstrom has amazing customer service – so even better when we get that along with our deal, right!?

subscribe-save-sept-2017-550

GoDirect Foods

And if you missed it yesterday, I wrote a long overdue post about GoDirect Foods. This is the company that I shared with you last year and who offered a super great deal on chicken – for delivery in January 2016. The owner of the company did a lot of promising – but turns out he’s not been giving people refunds like he promised. No chicken, no refunds. That’s unacceptable. I’m sorry for ever suggesting this company. I share a little more about this AND what I think you should do about it in this post here. Please keep me posted on what comes of it.

Rise and Shine September 27 – Roasting chickens, PhotoBarn promo, TOMS shoes, Eating Well magazine, Samsonite luggage, Oreck vacuum, more


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! How’s it going!?! I’m hoping your day is off to a good start. I don’t have anything interesting to talk about this morning. It was picture day at school, so of course I was trying to do my daughter’s hair about 5 minutes before the bus came. 🙂 Today I am hoping to update the Subscribe and Save list with new deals and I have some other posts in the works – so stay tuned!

Did you watch the debate last night? What did you think? I’m not sure what I think about this political season – but I am sure that there is not enough coffee in the world to be discussing politics in Rise and Shine. 🙂 Am I right!?! And while we’re on this touchy topic – let me remind you that if you start seeing political ads on my site – please know that they in no way reflect my opinions/political beliefs. This time of the year candidates start putting lots of money into ads and what you see displayed is entirely dependent on your past web activity. We are probably all seeing different ads when accessing our favorite blogs this fall – just know a lot of it is out of our hands as bloggers.

Roasting-Two-Chickens

What is for dinner at your place tonight? Fred Meyer has whole chickens on sale this week (maybe your Kroger store does, too?). My store had them for $0.77/lb but I see a lot of Western Washington stores have them for $0.87/lb. Either way – it’s a SUPER deal! I like to buy two (the limit is two on this sale) and then I roast them both at the same time. The effort to roast two chickens is nearly the same as roasting one (prep, dishes, oven time) – so do yourself a favor and roast two chickens at once. Then perhaps you’ll have leftovers (if you don’t have a big family) and you can make slow cooker chicken broth from the chicken carcasses. So I think that’s what I’m making for dinner tonight. . .and tomorrow I’ll use the broth and chicken to make Slow Cooker Chicken Dumping Soup. See how that works!?!

fly-fishing-cabelas

Good morning! Well hello there. . .how was your weekend? We had a pretty laid back couple of days. Saturday morning I went to Cabela’s for a Ladies Day Out event!  It was a FREE event and they offered classes all weekend. I went to the Fly Fishing class! I really want to learn how to fly fish because Idaho is FULL of fishable rivers and my son loves to fish. Can’t wait to go fishing!

chalk-paint-class

I also went to a free chalk paint course at a local art store! I have been furnishing our house with secondhand items and many of them would look awesome with chalk paint. Both classes were great and I was thankful for the opportunity to attend free classes in our new community!

Alaskan-Mittens-logo-550

When I was visiting her in Alaska this summer I created an Etsy shop for her! She has never sold her mittens online – but I wanted to help her reach people all over the country – so we got them online. She recently added a TON of inventory to her shop – 84 pairs! I’m so proud of her. She’s not techy at all, but she took all the photos herself and uploaded them to her shop. She’s one of the hardest working people I know and really does an amazing job.

Rise and Shine September 21- NEW Kroger e-coupons, TOMS, TJ Maxx, Running magazine, Little Tikes play table, Gorilla garden carts, more


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! How are you today?  I’m already finding lots of deals online this morning, so I’m thinking today will be a good day to save. I posted a great deal on kid’s Converse over on Facebook (I got my daughter a pair for $10.97!). Sometimes deals are so hot and selection so limited I just post on Facebook or in my Facebook Deal Group – so if you’re on FB, make sure and follow in those two places.

fred-meyer-spend-10-save-2

I logged into my Fred Meyer account this morning and found these awesome e-coupons, pictured above . I’m hoping these coupons are in your account too (should be available for ANY Kroger store?) – login and select New Coupons to see them. If you spend $10 or more on your total order you can get a dozen Kroger eggs for $0.49, Kroger bread for $0.49 and a gallon of Kroger milk for $0.99 – how awesome is that!!? I also had a coupon for 4x gas rewards – those are always helpful. I like to pick up Amazon gift cards (since I shop there the most) and then I earn gas rewards on TOP of the savings I get through Amazon. Let me know if you have these same coupons in your Fred Meyer (or Kroger) account, k?

I went thrift shopping yesterday and didn’t find much (this happens often but you can’t give up on the hunt!). I found a lime green desk lamp for $2.99 for my son who wants to decorate his room with a Seahawks theme and a small bookshelf (30 inch tall) for $7.99. Oh. . .and I found some cute metal ghost yard decorations for $0.99 that hold tea lights. Spent under $12! Have you found any secondhand treasures lately?

I hope you have a wonderful day today!

Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Howdy. It’s Tuesday, huh!? How is your day going? Not much going on around here! Yesterday I ran a few errands – Dollar Store, Grocery Outlet, furniture store, etc. I love picking up random things at Grocery Outlet – yesterday I got Immaculate Baking refrigerated rolls for $0.99 each (they are close to $4 at other stores!) and I also picked up Tillamook Greek yogurt for $0.50 each and 3 lbs of bananas for $1.99. What are some of your favorite Grocery Outlet deals? 

potatoes-roast-crockpot-dinner

Last night for dinner I pulled out BOTH crockpots – one for the Mississippi Pot Roast and one for the crockpot mashed potatoes. Eight hours later, I took out some of the drippings from the roast and whipped up a gravy, cooked up some vegetables and viola – we had wonderful dinner with minimal work.

weekend-fun-sept-16

Good morning! Welcome to Monday. . .hope you had a good weekend. Did you do anything fun or interesting? I’d love to hear about it. On Friday night we met up with a family we met during our travels – they also live and travel fulltime in an Airstream trailer. We joined them for some paddle boating on Lake Coeur d’Alene – it was awesome!  Saturday was rainy and cold so we went swimming and rock climbing at the local community center. It was the first time my kids rock climbed and they LOVED it! We came home and had Crockpot Quinoa Chicken Chili – it hit the spot!

Yesterday I spent a couple hours scouring Amazon and updated my list of BEST Amazon Subscribe & Save Deals – items as low as $1.03! There are a ton of awesome deals. If you find yourself with only 4 orders in your S&S monthly order – sometimes adding an inexpensive order pays for itself because you go from 5% to 15% off – and it applies to ALL of your orders!

backyard-bliss

Good morning! It’s Friday – hooray! I’m excited for the weekend – how about you!? Do you have any plans? Yesterday I worked in the yard. Bought a lawn mower and mowed the lawn. . .and I’m loving how big the sunflowers are at my house! They tower over me and I’m just in awe of how strong the stalks are. We still haven’t got chickens. We are trying to decide between ordering pullets (like teenage chickens, more expensive than chicks) or wait until spring and get baby chicks to raise. I go back and forth – I’m anxious to get chickens again but I love raising them from chicks – they get to know you from the beginning. The chicken coop here is awesome – way cooler than our last one. I can’t wait to share all of it with you!

Crockpot-Quinoa-Chili

I think this weekend I’m going to make up a batch of my favorite Crockpot Quinoa Chicken Chili recipe. We are having company over on Saturday and I think it will be perfect for the chilly weather that is predicted.

Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! How’s it going today? Yesterday I went grocery shopping at Fred Meyer – their Anniversary sale is HOT!  I was able to stock up on cereal for $0.50 a box – it’s been AGES since I’ve found a deal that good on cereal (see deal details here). For dinner we had baked potatoes. I was really tempted to pick up pizza or go out to eat – but we were strong and baked potatoes are insanely easy and inexpensive. Top them chili, cheese, sour cream, chives, avocado, olives, bacon bits . . . so many ways to doctor them up. What are your favorite baked potato toppings?

Crockpot-potatoes-baked-whole

Did you know you can make baked potatoes in the Crockpot? That’s right! So easy. I also like making mashed potatoes in the crockpot because I hate boiling the water to make them on the stovetop.
