Rise and Shine July 13 – We aren’t as young as we used to be, LuLaRoe Back-to-School sales, Subscribe and Save deals, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, bicycles and trailers/scooters sale, 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 things this morning? I’m a little on the slow side today. . . we went to the Counting Crows/Matchbox 20 concert at the Spokane arena last night. Whew! It was a date for our anniversary (which was on the 10th) and we had so much fun. A BIG thank you to my aunt who kept the kids overnight for us – we stayed out waaaaay too late. We aren’t as young as we used to be – this morning is kicking my butt. . . . but I’m so glad we went!

I’ll tell you – going to a concert in Spokane is a million times easier than a Seattle concert. Zero traffic for us and parking our big ole truck in the lot was a cinch. We arrived 10 minutes before concert started and it couldn’t have been more simple. Plus event parking at the arena was $10 versus Seattle which would easily have been $30-40!  What band would you like to see in concert? What’s your favorite concert of all time (for me it would be Bruce Springsteen!)

If you’re thinking about back-to-school clothing, we’re doing a series of album sales in our LuLaRoe group over the next few weeks featuring kids clothing! I just posted a whole album of Scarlett dresses. I love these swing-style kid’s dresses. They easily go from a dress to a flowy top as your kiddo grows! Check our LuLaRoe group here.

Yesterday we spent time updating our big list of the BEST Subscribe and Save deals available on AmazonAmazon Subscribe and Save deals are a fantastic way to buy groceries, health items, diapers, cleaning products, household items and other consumable products – at great discounts, often beating my local stores, even with clipping coupons!
