Rise and Shine May 19 – LuLaRoe Disney clothing, my favorite thrift store finds, Sam’s Club gift card offer, Zaycon fresh chicken $1.49/lb, Under Armour, espresso machine, diapers, 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! Yay for Fridays! There is so much going on around here, I have lots to tell you! Yesterday I stopped into a local thrift shop on a whim and I scored big time! You just never know when you’ll find items that align with your likes or needs – but yesterday was a good day! I found a Step2 play kitchen for $19 (it’s $79 new and this one looks brand new), LEGO sets $5.99 and Nerf guns $3.99, American Girl books $0.49, Pampered Chef can opener $1.99 and egg slicer $0.99, Gymboree skirt $3.99 and a LL Bean swim shirt $3.99. Score!

Some of you may know that my husband and I are LuLaRoe retailers – we love it and it’s been a wonderful endeavor for our family. We are so excited that LuLaRoe recently announced they are partnering with DISNEY to make LuLaRoe Disney clothing! Think leggings with Mickey and lots of adorable, whimsical patterns on dresses, skirts, tops and more. It’s going to be a 2-year partnership with lots of fun things planned. If you love LuLaRoe we recommend joining our group here. We’ll be carrying the line and we currently have more than 2,000 piece of LuLaRoe inventory in stock – including kid’s clothing – so if LuLaRoe is your thing, please join us!

Do you have fun plans this weekend? It’s Mr. Queen Bee’s birthday!! This guy is the ROCK in our family and I’m so very grateful for him. I’ve known Mr. QB for at least 16 years (we’re going on 13 years of marriage!) and he just gets better with age. Happy Birthday sweetie!
