Rise and Shine March 17- Crockpot Corned Beef, LuLaRoe EPIC SALE, Lane Bryant 17 cent shipping, Disney Princess favorites on sale, lots of Amazon deals, 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! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! TGIF. So happy it’s Friday. I swear I thought “tomorrow” was Friday all week for some reason. So I’m just glad it’s finally here. Are you wearing green today? I am. Just a little. Hopefully we can help you save some green today!

I just got back from a nice RUN to the bus stop with the kids. That was fun. I totally missed my phone alarm reminding us to walk to the bus. Of course today my vehicle is in the shop, so if we would have missed the bus I’d have no way to get the kids to school today. Of all the days. Mom win. We thankfully didn’t miss the bus. And I’m trying to get the image of me running down the street with my boots half on and my daughters lunch (unpacked) in one hand and a paper bag in the right hand (to pack it!). We almost ran into our neighbors (literally), so it’s good everyone got to see the special moment. 🙂

Whew. I’ll drink more coffee and hopefully that will fix everything.

    Thank you for the American Girl sticker book for $5.49. This is a perfect $5ish present for birthday party gifts. You might want to get some for birthday parties your daughter attends. There is a limit of 4 per person. My corned beef is in the electric pressure cooker as we speak. I like to buy extra corned beefs for the freezer, since the price doubles and triples for the year by next week.
