Rise and Shine May 18 – Fred Meyer Founder’s Day sale, Living Social deals, Star magazine, Dyson Ball Allergy vacuum, 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! I spent all day yesterday thinking it was Thursday. . . ha! So today sort of feels like ground hogs day. Yesterday I went grocery shopping at Fred Meyer. It’s their Founder’s Sale this week – so amazing prices! My store here in Idaho runs the ad Wednesday thru Tuesday, so my sale just started yesterday. We stocked up on eggs, Tillamook cheese, apples and lots of other super deals. Find Fred Meyer coupon deals  Have you shopped the Founder’s Sale yet? 

Today I’m starting ALLERGY SHOTS. . . I’ve been deathly allergic to cats and dogs for the last 24 years and I’m finally making the move to get some relief. My kiddos want a puppy so badly and even hypoallergenic dogs give me fits. . .so we’ll see how this works!  Have you had allergy shots before? I’m nervous since my allergies are so severe and I’m hoping it doesn’t make me feel terrible all day. We will see!

    How can you forget the Darigold butter for $1.99 and the bags of Juanita’s tortilla chips 3/$5. I also got a giant flat of red petunias for $10.99.
