Rise and Shine February 17 – TONS of sales this weekend! Picking up Zaycon this weekend (are you?), TOMS free shipping, DEWALT tools, Lenova ThinkPad, 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! TGIF! So glad it’s Friday this week. I’m really looking forward to the weekend. Not because we have anything exciting planned, just looking forward to family time and a little slower pace. We plan to get chicks this weekend . . I’m so, so excited. Might be motivation enough for me to do some cleaning in the garage today, since that’s where they’ll be kept (under a heat lamp) until it’s warm enough and they are big enough to move outside into our chicken coop.

Speaking of chicken, I’m picking up my Zaycon Fresh order tomorrow, LOL. I’m really excited for that because we’ve been out of chicken for the last month and I’ve had to buy it at the grocery store (gasp!). It’s so hard to pay full price when we get such a good deal through Zaycon. I got two boxes and I’m praying I can get it all to fit into our tiny freezer. Are you picking up a Zaycon order this week?

I volunteered in my daughter’s class yesterday (we all love their school here so much) and I had a big live sale for LuLaRoe last night. I’ve been having a lot of fun with LuLaRoe the last couple months and it’s really blessed our family in the short time we’re doing it. I’m giving away a $25 LuLaRoe credit in our Facebook group here.

This list is created by going through the store – by hand! – and compiling the current prices and quantities. Then we figure out the per unit prices so you can compare apples to apples! Costco is often the best deal, but not always, and this list helps you figure that out!
