rise-and-shine-jan-2017

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! Howdy. . . hope your coffee is hot this morning and your day is off to a good start! Today my husband (a teacher) has a SNOW DAY because his school district is closed and my kids HAVE SCHOOL because their district is not closed. This is a first for us. PARTY TIME! 🙂 Well not really. . . we have a bunch of stuff to get done but it’s going to be so strange having the kids in school and we’re home. We plan to do a LIVE LuLaRoe sale at 12:30 in our Facebook Group and catch up on work/errands around the house.

I have to tell you guys about something that rocked my world yesterday. . . I ordered my groceries using the Fred Meyer ClickList option. I ordered my groceries online at 6:30 a.m. and took about 20 minutes to do so. I picked a time slot to pick up my order (noon to 1 p.m.) and I pulled into the Fred Meyer parking lot at my allotted time. My groceries were in my trunk within 5 minutes of parking in front of Fred Meyer. FIVE MINUTES! I seriously saved myself an hour in the store yesterday. I still got the SALE prices AND my e-coupons came off. Ummm, amazing! I’m working on a blog post all about this awesomeness and I’ll be sharing that tomorrow. This service is going to be especially awesome for those of you with young kids and babies – imagine NOT having to haul them into the store? Oh my goodness, where was this service when my kids were babies?! Expect more on this delightfulness tomorrow.

Roasting-Two-Chickens

Part of my grocery order was whole roasting chickens for $0.88/lb – so I picked up two of those yesterday. I’ll think I’ll be roasting both of them for dinner. Yes, BOTH of them. 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.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. This Haribo Gummi Bear Valentine is cute idea. And I hope to share some more ideas in the next week or so – what kind of Valentines will you be making this year?

Rise and Shine January 17 – Long Beach (Washington), LuLaRoe sales today, State Necklaces 2 for $15 shipped, Sam’s Club membership deal, Cuisinart Copper Cookware set, home gym supplies, more

rise-and-shine-jan-2017

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 doing today? We got back late last night from a short trip to the Washington coast – Long Beach, specifically. We love that community and we hadn’t been in a couple of years. It’s a great kid-friendly beach town and we couldn’t have asked for better weather. 45 degrees and sunshine – we’ll take it! I’m thankful for good roads on the 8.5 hour drive (each way) and grateful for the quality family time exploring.

What’s this week shaping up like at your place? Any interesting things happening or any deals you’re looking for specifically? Let me know and I’ll do my best to find them!

I don’t know about you – but I feel like I’m a little behind on my “New Years Resolutions” and I hope to spend some time this week figuring out what my goals will be for this. If you’re looking for a way to control the paper that comes into your house – let me recommend this method for organization paperwork and bills. It is one of the few “systems” that I’ve stuck with for so long and it continues to keep me from losing my mind – or losing a bill. What are your New Years resolutions (if you have any)? I’d love to hear about it!

Good morning! TGIF! I am sorry I didn’t chat much yesterday. I was not very good with my time management yesterday and ended up running out of time for Rise and Shine before I had to get to an appointment. Usually I’m a little bit better about that sort of thing. This week has been busy with things like oil changes, grocery shopping and getting back into the routine after all the holidays and SNOW DAYS we had. Honestly I can’t believe we’re already two weeks into 2017 – can you?

Do you have any fun plans for this weekend? Do you have a 3-day weekend from school and work?  I’d love to know what you’re up to!
