Rise and Shine August 9 – Cents of Style tees, Disney Store $1 personalization, Zaycon chicken $1.69/lb, Bosch combo kit, 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! Hello, hello! How are you today? I spent all day yesterday doing taxes. Ugh. This was the first year we had filed for an extension and frankly it just allowed us to procrastinate longer! With 2 businesses, a move and other stuff, it takes me awhile to get my “head in the game” to tackle the numbers. But I did it and it’s been sent off to the accountant and I am so relieved!

In order for that to happen, Mr. Queen Bee took the kids for the day and left me in a quiet house (thank goodness!). They went to the gym, the movies, out to lunch and to the library.

We LOVE the Cents of Style tee shirts.  They are soft and comfortable, sized well and even come in plus sizes!  For a short time, Cents of Style is offering these “Choose” Raglan Tees with wonderful inspirational messages on them for just $16.95 (reg. $29.95) with code BOLD19 at checkout.  Cents of Style always offers FREE Shipping.  Valid through August 12.  Shop Cents of Style Bold and Full Wednesday here.
