Rise and Shine August 25 – FREE Redbox today, Converse sale, FREE $20 Amazon gift card with cookware

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. I share with you what’s happening with me – and I LOVE to hear about what’s happening with you. 


Good morning! Are you having a good weekend? Yesterday was pretty simple and relaxled around here. We picked nearly 2.5 pounds of cherry tomatoes from the garden, grilled veggies for dinner and did a thorough cleaning of the kids rooms. I still have a lot that I want to get done in the kids rooms to get them organized for school, but it’s a good start!


Today is the LAST day to get your FREE Redbox movie with code JR8WQLM at checkout.


If you plan to go to Costco this weekend, good luck. Ha! I bet it will be busy since it’s the weekend before Labor Day and school. But if you go, make sure you have your August Costco Coupon Deals! The coupon book lasts until September 1.  You can also go here to see our other random Costco posts.

Last night for dinner we grilled up a bunch of vegetables – red peppers, onions (from the garden!), zucchini (from our neighbor) and mushrooms. Thanks to your suggestions on Facebook I decided to marinate them in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lots of crushed garlic, salt/pepper, and a pinch of smoked paprika (thanks, Katie!). They were a big hit and I love grilling up enough so that we can dice them and add to eggs in the morning. What’s on your menu this week?
