Its fall here in Michigan which means that the house has to be closed up to keep us nice and warm. Sometimes though, it can get a little stuffy and musty. My favorite fix is to light a candle. The scent makes everything so much more homey. I've found that Yankee candles smell so good and last much longer than the cheaper brands. Fortunately, there is a new coupon for $10 off a $25 dollar Yankee purchase available here
If you do not live near a Yankee candle store don't worry! Bed, Bath, and Beyond will accept this one. I stopped today to see what clearance candles were available. I was able to find two large size candles for close to the $25 dollar total. I added a .99 tart to bring the total up to use my coupon. All total I got two big candles and a tart for $15.98 plus tax. That is well over half price! They even have little lighthouse pictures on the "Sea Harbor" scent that match my home decor.
This summer I haphazardly worked on a small backyard garden. There were some successes like purple beans that grew everywhere and yielded far more than we could eat. I was a little bummed that my cucumbers didn't do a thing. My husband surprised me today by discovering this little guy in what I thought was a dead plant. He is so excited to eat the giant cucumber! Just goes to show that we shouldn't give up on the garden because it is the end of the season. Who knows what else might pop out?
I shared recently that I moved into a new home this summer. We have a wonderful back porch to enjoy the summer sun. However, there are no shade trees near the deck. Needless to say, most of the day it is too uncomfortable to use. This is a major bummer. I was pondering how to correct this situation without major renovations. Fast forward to my favorite store Goodwill (or GW for those of us who are super chic!). I found a brand new outdoor pop up gazebo that fits my porch perfectly for only $40! (See picture from the current Walmart website for the same one currently priced $75) Half price and exactly what I needed. I can't wait to test it out.
The last six months of my life have been hard and crazy. I lost my Mom to cancer, quit my job, my husband was transferred across the state, and we are now proud owners of a new puppy. It's time for a new start. It's also time for new deals and to get this site up and running again. In the weeks to come there will be pictures, deals, etc. as soon as I unpack my digital camera anyway. Oh and I have been yard saling...including a Coach purse and matching wallet!
If you have a subscription to Martha Stewart Living, there is a great sample offer available this month. There is an ad for All Bran products with an attached card to send in for a free seven day supply. This is part of the All Bran 7 Day challenge. See the picture above for the cover of the issue and a visual of the postcard to send in. This sounds like a really good freebie!
There is a great coupon for Limited stores right now. It can be used for $15 off any purchase of $15 or more. (click here for a printable coupon. I visited a store that had many sales items for 60% off the lowest marked price. Altogether, I purchased three shirts and a purse. After coupon my total was $1.08 and this was mostly tax. Crazy good!
Some stores aren't accepting this coupon for sales, however, there were quite a few nice shirts for $19.50, which would only be $4.50 after coupon. I hadn't been into this store in years, but it has some nice basics and cute accessories. I would have included a picture, unfortunately, I am out of town and forgot my camera. Rats!
My nickname is Deal Squirrel, due to the large number of deals I have "squirreled" around the house. My husband and I both work for Christian ministries. Every little bit helps to give more and build our future together. Find a great deal? Let me know by email at dealsquirrelblogger at gmail dot com.
