Rise and Shine March 11 – Our weekend thrift shopping finds, 2019 Entertainment books, TOMS free shipping, Crocs spring event, REI men’s swim trunks, 3-tiered earrings, 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 was your weekend!?! How did you adjust to the Daylight Savings time? We got a little later start yesterday but I don’t feel like we had too much of an impact. My daughter and I went thrift shopping (our weekly date) and after our awesome finds last week I wasn’t too optimistic this week. . . but we found some gems yesterday. Probably my favorite find was this Excalibur 5-tray electric food dehydrator with adjustable temperature control for $39.99 – I used a 20% off coupon (from a previous donation) to get it for $32.99. These retail for $200-$300 on Amazon!! And I was so excited because it looks brand new! It’s hard to find clean dehydrators second-hand because they require a pretty extensive cleaning between use – but the grates on the one I found at Goodwill look brand-new. It’s very possible it was never even used!

I had one back in Olympia (bigger size) and I loved making dried apples, mangoes and other goodies for the kids. We sold it when we moved into the Airstream and I’ve been wanting to buy one again but was waiting for a good deal. I saw it was the deal of the day not too long ago on Amazon. . . and almost bit the bullet. . .but I’m glad I didn’t! We found a brand-new beside table for my son for $7.99 (it was a donation from Target, never used!) and a few other treasures. It was a fun day. Did you find any secondhand treasures this weekend?

Awhile ago we posted about trying out DreamCloud Mattress, which claims to be the best sleep money can buy with their 15″ blend of latex, tufting and coil technology, memory foam and hand-craft Cashmere. I’m completely sold. I just love it. And even though I can’t ever imagine returning this mattress, DreamCloud does have a 365-night Trial and Everlong Warranty – how wonderful is that? DreamCloud is so sure of their product, they will give you a full year, 365 nights, to try it and decide if this is the right mattress for you! If you don’t love it, they will remove the mattress and refund your money. And less than 3% of DreamCloud customers return their mattress. While most mattress companies only offer a 10-15 year warranty, the DreamCloud Mattress has the Everlong Warranty. DreamCloud Mattress construction and materials is guaranteed for the full life of use by the original owner! If you’re in the market for a new mattress, I recommend checking them out. Right now you can save $200 on any size DreamCloud Mattress, no code needed (it should apply automatically), prices as listed. And all orders ship FREE.
