Hit a deer (again) and hubby grabs some after Christmas deals

January 10th, 2019 at 11:21 am

Coming home from one of our family Christmas celebrations we hit (well actually we were hit by) a deer. It was just a grazing blow from the deer hitting the front driver side corner and also along the door. No major damage and there wasn't even any blood, so I think the deer actually survived as it just kept running after the impact. Of course it was on our new truck, which we only bought so we would have enough room for the twins and the dogs, or we wouldn't even have such a nice vehicle.....we had taken it down to town since we were going to Christmas and were bringing down presents and the dogs...etc. So anyways the truck is in the shop to get fixed...even that little bit of damage is almost $5000 in repairs. Our deductible for hitting a deer is only $250 thank goodness, but still stinks as we had just hit a deer in a different vehicle, on a different road back in Aug-Sept, and at that time it had totaled out our Jeep. We really watch for those buggers but they seem to be everywhere....neither MO or I had ever hit a deer till we started dating. Then I hit 1 in 2015ish and MO hit 2 in 2018. Hopefully we are done with that now!

When MO took the truck back to town to get it into the shop his Dad had to bring him back, so they had lunch together and then stopped into Walmart and grabbed some after Christmas deals for me! Since they picked them up together I will split with FIL. Some items to keep till next Christmas and some to resell now.

JCP $10 off $10 purchase coupon

December 6th, 2018 at 10:59 am



I got a $10 off of $10 coupon in the mail from JCP, I love those! I looked around for some time and found these two items in the clearance section, total OOP for me was only $1.26!!

My JCP has moved all of the clearance for the entire store into just one section that is just a giant clearance area....I am not sure how I feel about that. On the one hand it is convenient of course to have all the clearance in one place. On the other hand for a reseller like me who is willing to snoop around to find the deals, it gives me a lot more competition because it's easy to find the deals when they are all in one place. So still undecided on if I like that set up or not.

Flu Shots, Thrift Store Shopping and Gender Reveals??

October 18th, 2018 at 09:33 am

Yesterday was a long day of medical apts. From 7:45am till 3:00pm we were in and out of Drs. apts allllll day!

We had extensive ultrasounds for both babies and everything looked great! They are both measuring about the same size (roughly the size of a can of pop each) so that is also wonderful news. Both babies were dancing around a lot. Smile We got the envelopes with the babies genders, they are sealed and we will be doing a small gender reveal next week with immediate family. We are so excited!!

I had diabetic training (major family history of diabetes, so no surprise I am a prime candidate for gestational diabetes). My Dr. let me know there wasn't anything I could have done differently to prevent this so that made me feel better. I am 20 weeks now and have only gained 9lbs (with twins!) so I am happy with my weight gain so far, and they were not concerned with my weight at all, but only with my blood sugar levels. All we can do is do our best with diet and exercise to treat it to keep me and babies healthy. So I got my meter and also went to the pharmacy for test strips and lancets. We met our OOP Max for the year way back in May, so won't have to pay anything for the visits or Rx.

I also got my flu shot for the year too, again free. We took MO to CVS to get his flu shot, but they were out, so he will need to wait till next week. We had some time to kill between apts so we went to Goodwill and MO was able to find 2 pairs of shorts for next year for $3.50 each and one pair of workpants for $5.00. I have been looking for maternity coat options, but did not want to spend a ton of money on a coat I would only be wearing for a few months. I was super excited to find a really cute coat that I can wear this winter to cover up the babes. My current coat is getting a bit hard to zip! The coat probably won't last me for the whole pregnancy as it is still a regular coat, just a much bigger size, not maternity, but it was only $6.99 so I was very excited!

I also found a Peanuts PJ set that was new with tags for $14.99, and it was only marked for $1.99 ($2.12 after tax) so I got that for resell. I plan to mark that for $6.00.
