CLOSED: Review and Giveaway

As you can tell by the name of this company these are not your "typical" shirts.  The people at have a great sense of humor and I'm sure you'll find a shirt appropriate for every sense of humor!!

They have great designs such as these:

I thought that these shirts were hilarious when I was viewing through them! 

I received a Girls You Rock You Rule Shirt.  
I thought this shirt was great, but what was even better about it was how comfortable it was!

Another thing that I really loved about this shirt was that it was plenty long.  I often have trouble with getting shirts that are long enough for me to wear without wearing an undershirt and I had no problem at all with this one!  Plenty long so you don't have to worry about exposing anything.  These shirts are a great fit for girls.  They are fitted T-shirts so make sure you order size appropriate.
You'll love these shirts!  

And...If you are really feeling brave you can purchase a "Mystery T-Shirt" for $6!!

So...For the Fun Part!!
The great people at is going to give one of my readers a shirt of their choice!!!

    Parade Magazine- Free McDonald's Frappe or Fruit Smoothie!

    Hey guys! Often times I buy the paper and look for the inserts I know are supposed to be there and recycle the rest of the paper.  Well, this week there is a coupon that I'm sure most everyone can take advantage of in the Parade Magazine!!  

    It's for a FREE McDonald's Frappe or Fruit Smoothie! 
    The coupon does not expire until 8/15 so whenever you are needing an extra pick me up on your way to work you can grab a Frappe or when you are on your way home and need an extra boost to get through the day, you can grab a Smoothie!  Either way, it's going to be a great coupon!

    So, when going through those papers, make sure to take that one out!  I haven't tried the new Fruit Smoothies yet, but I have tried the Frappes and they are delicious!!

        CVS Purchase 7/11


        CVS Purchase:
        • (2) John Frieda Root Awakening 2/$10
          • Used (2) $3/1 John Frieda Root Awakening (6/6 SmartSource)
          • Received: $5 ECB
        • (1) Pantene Shampoo on Sale at my CVS for $2.49
          • Used (1) $2/1 Pantene Product CRT
          • Used (1) $1.50/1 Pantene Coupon from Vocalpoint with free sample
        • (1) Papermate Pens $0.99
          • Received $0.99
        • (1) Caliber Scissors $0.99
          • Received $0.99
        • (1) Complete Multipurpose $7.99
          • Used (1) $2/1 (5/16 RedPlum)
          • Received $7.99
        • Green Bag Tag

        Total: $10.96
        Used: $11 ECB (Lost $0.04 in ECB)
        Paid OOP: $0  
        Received: $14.97 ECB

        Overall I made $3.97 in Extra Bucks and paid nothing out of pocket!!  I absolutely love getting good deals at CVS!  This was a perfect week for me because I had $11 in ECBs expiring this week.  Sorry, I just can't get over this deal!  I am so happy with it!  I know that so many of y'all are professionals at this and probably laugh at my excitement while others are beginners and are impressed with this purchase!  I didn't get many products...but they were free!!
        We are donating the contact solution, using the Pantene and John Frieda, and my boyfriend is a teacher so we can ALWAYS school supplies!!  

        Walgreens $5 Challenge 7/11


        2 8.5 x 11 Legal Pads ($0.29 each after in store coupon)
        2 5 x 7 Legal Pads ($0.29 each after in store coupon)
        4 Packs of Index Cards ($0.39 each after in store coupon)
        1 10 pack of Mechanical Pencils ($0.39 each after in store coupon)
        Total: $3.11
        Used: $3 RR
        Paid OOP: $0.11

        This time of year is when stores start putting their school supplies for next to nothing.  If you try to go to at least 2 stores weekly to stock up on those items that they have on sale that week.  My stores are always CVS and Walgreens...during the great deals I usually add in Staples and Office Depot.
        These Legal pads are so versatile too!  I am going to use the larger ones for my padfolio and the smaller ones are going to be perfect for my boyfriend to use for the plays in football.  So, even if you don't have kids or aren't related to a teacher, I'm sure you can find purposes for these could even use them to write down your grocery list!  (Although, I try to use backs of envelopes or old receipts so that I am helping the environment!)

        Nature Valley Review and Giveaway!



        I recently had the opportunity to try out Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Granola Bars.  They were fantastic!  They had  real almonds, raisins, peanuts, and cranberries.  Better yet...they are now made with 25% MORE Fruit and Nuts!  No matter who you are...I know that is exactly what we want!  More for our money!  We get the real stuff! Nature Valley bars are 100% Natural.  Along with this 100% Natural title, it comes with 7% of your daily dietary fiber in 1 bar!!    Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Granola Bars also contain 8g of whole grain per serving with only 140 Calories!

        Another feature I liked about these bars is that they are chewy.  Chewy means less crumble!  This is another feature that everyone wants!  Whether you are eating this on the run or serving it to your kids...less mess is better!  

        Even ANOTHER great feature is that you can purchase these at your local warehouse club such as Sam's Club Warehouse.  Shopping for items at places such as Sam's Club can save you time and money!  Other great items to stock up on while you are there is gum, chicken strips, and chips.  This means you can stock up on items for your family which then saves you time so that you can spend more time doing more of what you love!!!
