Rise and Shine August 10 – A Keurig for $7.99!?!? LuLaRoe black solid leggings, Build-a-Bear Flash Sale, Groupon coupon, back-to-school backpacks, baseball glove float/raft, more

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 this morning (afternoon)? Yesterday was a good day – we started our morning by going to a new breakfast place. It’s right across the street from our neighborhood, it’s called Chompers and I definitely think we’ll be going on a regular basis now! We could easily walk there when it’s not 95 degrees outside. The kids LOVED it and we love that we’re all home together and get to do things like breakfast on a weekday!

I took both kids to the doctors in Spokane Valley for their annual sports physicals and check-ups. Glad to get them in and checked out before things get busy for school. Spokane Valley (WA) has some of my favorite thrift shops, so we stopped into one and found some treasures! We upgraded our $7 Walmart 2-slice toaster (that was terrible!) to this beautiful stainless steel 4-piece toaster for $5.99. Mr. Queen Bee is thrilled because we’ve been lamenting that cheap Walmart toaster for so long – but I didn’t want to spend $40 on a new toaster. I also picked up a Keurig for $7.99! You guys, it looks brand new. It’s spotless. I’m running some vinegar and water through it today. I couldn’t justify a $50-$100 Keurig that we wouldn’t use all the time (we usually make a couple pots of regular coffee) but I can do $7.99! It will be great for LuLaRoe open houses or when we want just one cup of coffee in the afternoon. Now to find a great deal on K-Cups. . . anyone see one recently?

Yesterday we also got 12 new boxes of LuLaRoe inventory in and had a really fun live sale last night in our LuLaRoe Facebook group. We got TONS of solid black leggings in – which if you know anything about LuLaRoe are hard to come by. We are thrilled.

    What thrift stores did you hit up in Spokane Valley? South Hill Goodwill is one of my faves but I’m always looking for more!:)

  3. Karen Kasonic says:

    I recently saw some good K-cup deals at Home Goods. Usually at the end of summer Bed Bath & Beyond has them on sale as well, especially the iced tea and coffee ones. I love having a selection for guests and parties, but for myself I have one of the reusable K-cups that I can just fill with ground coffee.
