It’s almost summer time, and that means cold ice cream on those hot summer days! There is a new printable coupon for $1/1 Dove ice cream bars. I’ve seen these on sale for $2.99, and this coupon would bring the price down even further to $1.99. I’ll be watching for this sale!
I’ve never heard of these before but for free, I’m excited to try them! Fill out a short form to request a free sample of Sandy’s antibacterial wipes. Your sample will include 1 trial pack of Extra Strength Sandy Wipes, with 6 wipes in Citrus Burst scent or Fresh Spring scent.
Thanks, Totally Target!
Since I was driving home last Monday, I didn’t share my typical counting of my blessings. There is always plenty for which I am thankful, but I appreciate this opportunity to be deliberate in giving thanks. I am thankful for…
…the opportunity for my Pastor / Dad to preach an excellent sermon at Concordia’s Baccalaureate.
…the blessing that myself and all three of my siblings graduated from college debt free. It meant hard work by us and our parents, pinching pennies and scholarships, but what a blessing!
…two months until Mikaela marries JohnDavid!
…nine days left in preschool this year. Really? Yes, really. How quickly this year has gone!
…four music classes left to teach. We’re ending the year with musicals – one of my favorite things. I hope to inspire a love of musicals in my students!
…a wonderful preschool zoo field trip on this past Friday. Excited preschoolers and supportive parents plus free zoo tickets made this an excellent field trip day!
…sleeping in on Saturday and a nap on Sunday. I caught a summer cold (or perhaps Indiana allergies?) so my body needed that extra rest.
…a Schiffli family gathering on Friday evening.
…visits from Aunts and Uncles in Texas and Virginia, that completed the Schiffli family reunion.
…singing “O Day Full of Grace” on Pentecost. It’s one of my favorite Pentecost hymns!
This list numbers blessings 1321 to 1330 on my journey to Two Thousand Gifts.

I made a grocery shopping trip to Meijer this week – without a grocery list or any coupons. Really, I did! I got back from my St. Louis trip and debated going shopping at all. However, I needed to pick up snacks for our preschool field trip to the zoo. Since I was picking up items for preschool, I picked up several items along the way for us. Since I knew we had money in the budget, I didn’t worry about not having coupons along, but bought a couple items that were on sale at Meijer.
The Coke, lemonade, shampoo, bags, cucumber, and croutons were on sale for $1. I happened to have a Mperks coupon clipped for “B1g1″ on the kids shampoo. Normally, it’s $1.49 a bottle. I paid $1 for 2 bottles, which was a 67% savings.
I picked up some more Boston contact solution. I still have some on the shelf, but since it’s something I go through every month, I like to always have some on hand. The string cheese and applesauce were for quick and healthy snacks.
While I was wandering the aisles, I noticed that the Meijer organics / naturals catalina had returned. I stocked up on oatmeal and tomatoes last September when this catalina previously ran. Purchase any 5 products, and get a catalina for $2 off your next organics purchase. I paid $2.17 for the tomato sauce and paste – and have $2 to spend next time. I plan to roll this catalina, since it is ongoing through May 30th.
Speaking of catalinas, I picked up two bags of paper cups for preschool snack because they were producing a $1 catalina. At least, that’s what the shelf tag AND the print out at the register said. However, my catalina didn’t print. When I went to customer service to get it, two of the high school workers there insisted that I was wrong and had to buy another 2 products NEXT time, to get the $1 off another future purchase. Really? I don’t think so. I carefully read my flier, and showed them the print out. I was polite about it but firm. Finally, the one guy said to take $1 in cash because he would feel better about it. I took it – but I would have felt better if they knew their policies and followed them the way catalinas were intended to work. Sigh. It is a pet peeve of mine when grocery store workers do not know their own policies. Double sigh.
Anyway, at Meijer, I spent $24.40. Not bad for shopping the sales without a list or coupons. So far in May, I’ve spent only $45.02 out of my $180 monthly budget.
