Here's the scenario:
1.Cost of gifts: $460.00
2.Purchasing online through www.ebates.com cash back promotion of .03% Minus $9.66
3. 30% coupon, minus $138.00
4. Kohl's cash, 60.00
5. 2 you rewards, $15.00
- 138.00 = 322.00 (coupon)
-9.66 = 312.34 (ebates reward, rounded down)
- 60.00 = 252.00 (Kohl's cash)
- 15.00 = 237.00 ( 2 you rewards)
This comes out to be a savings of 223.00
I like this! First thing in the morning I will take advantage of the free shipping online and order the items.
Monday I woke up with so much energy that I did a marathon session in the kitchen. The beef stew and home made bread made a great meal that I shared with friends and family. I enjoyed the visit and had fun setting the table with a fall theme. The meal was topped off with a garden salad and jello. The kids ate mac and cheese with some salad and the jello. The adults topped off the dinner with a store bought coffee crumb cake while the kids chomped down a few candy corns.
|Because I don't use recipes, I just fling |
meals together, I was hoping the stew
was good. I got a few thumbs up!
|I meant to take a picture of the table|
setting, but got side tracked. These tulips
were in the center. You know I love
|I used the bread machine to make|
this loaf. It was stored in a 'green' bag
which lived up to the claims of the creator.
After dinner I sat in the back yard while the kids drew race tracks on the patio and the four year old ate every blackberry she could find on the bushes. I had a nice time with everyone. I even had help with the dishes. Many hands make the work light.
I also made a quiche to use up small amounts of mushrooms and spinach. The quiche will be cut into single servings and placed in the freezer for future meals.
|Nothing was lost when I made this quiche.|
The eggs were fresh from a friend's
chickens (I'm sooo thankful) and the
veggies were fresh.
|I love the blue color of the eggs.|
|This picture is for a friend who thinks|
when I cook I'm a neat freak. I just
create and worry about the mess
later. I do separate clean from dirty
though. Just ingrained in me from
medical and surgical training.
|All clean now. I thought my hands were|
going to fall off after cleaning dishes
four times during the marathon!
