Rise and Shine May 26 – Memorial Day Sales, Crazy 8 sale, Clinique gift with purchase, Husqvarna lawn mower, whiteboards, curtains, 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! TGIF!! Whew. . . what a hectic week it’s been. I’m looking forward to a 3-day weekend. Yesterday I got my second round of rush allergy shots. These shots are more intense doses and you spend 2-3 hours at the office. It’s supposed to speed along the allergy shot process by a few months! We’ll see how it goes!  Do you have any plans this weekend? Are you doing anything fun? I’d love to hear about it!
