Rise and Shine March 6 – DIY Raised Garden Beds, Country Living, lots of Amazon deals and more

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. 


Good morning! How’s everyone doing today? It’s raining like mad around here this morning. Yesterday I went to Costco and priced out the new Costco March coupon book, which starts today. I also picked up some potting soil to get my seeds planted, under lights in my garage. All I have is soil so far – but I’m making progress! I’ll let you know as soon as I get a seed into dirt. I can do this.


And speaking of seeds in dirt – yesterday I shared my post on how to Build Raised Garden Beds for about $35 each. It’s a super easy tutorial for a basic raised bed.
