From *Fall Produce*In Season*

I have gone to many websites to find foods that are in season, hence, pay less! I was going through my bookmarks and saw "Kraft Foods" on there. I clicked it and was groing through some articles and recipes... then I saw "Budget Wise." I clicked it and it has a tab for "What's In Season"! It has some great resources and tons of information, including recipes, for what's in season! Check it out.

A Time to EAT!

This week on A Time to Give I didn't know what I would write about. I was watching the news and there was a picture of a pumpkin pie. Personally, I don't like pumpkin pie... gross, too mushy (that's why I don't like applesauce either). Then there were highlights of the high school football game. Then I had a flashback of when I was in highschool and every year around Thanksgiving I would do lots of volunteering. This week I will post one of those volunteering experiences, since it's getting close to that time of the year again.

So, all four years of high schol I was in Student Council and I loved it. Especially when we would have conferences and we all put our head together. I had lots of school spirit. Really, I just wanted to better our school. I loved to learn and didn't see why some guys and girls would get all boy/girl crazy. I had one boyfriend and stuck to him and that was that! lol Anywho.... getting off track.

So, when Turkey time got close we would put …

Lowe's in Weslaco ~GRAND OPENING~

Lowe's in Weslaco has it's grand opening today, Thursday, September 24th @ 10am.

They are starting the celebration with a "Board-cutting" verses a ribbon-cutting. I thought that was clever. Last week, I got a coupon in the mail for 10% off, but it expired yesterday! Well, the store has been open for a week already, but I didn't know. Plus, we really don't need anything from the store anyways. Yesterday I picked up the newspaper before I dropped of the little one at school because it was spreakling and one of my pet peeves is a wet newspaper! Inside the newspaper was a Lowe's insert. It coupons and some great deals in there that I thought I would share with you.

They are picking 5 WINNERS EVERY DAY for 4 days! You can win a gift card from $100 to $500. I could use that. To enter you have to complete the "official Entry Form" and put it in the ballot box inside the store. Oh and the $500 gift card is the Grand prize which will be draw on Sunday, Sep…

I have to say thought that I do cloth diaper my baby during the day, but when hubby feeds her at night he uses pampers diapers & sensitive wipes. I'm just glad he does change her! lol

Wednesday Wisdom ~ Wipes~

Why in the world do they make packages so hard to open? Especially baby and kid items. I mean, we have a hard life already, don't we?

When we can or have to, we buy bulk from our local Sam's Club....

****thought bubble; But wait a minute, don't we pay over $30 to have that darn membership? and we've only gone like three times this year to buy toilet paper, soap, shampoo, wipes and a box of diapers? We probably paid like $200 for all that, plus the $35 membership fee that we pay every year... we might as well have just bought it at Wal-Mart, right? And at Wal-mart we could have used coupons, so we probably would have save $35!****Okay, so yesterday we bought a box of wipes and this morning I had to open it. I see that they double taped the box and then when we opened the box the wipes didn't have that little sticker flap on it. I had to find a way to open the darn box, hubby was asleep, and then I had to find a way to open the wipes package. Probably took me over 20 m…

Menu Plan Monday ~ Mexican Inspired

Here's this weeks Menu Plan ((DRAFT))

The only thing I had to buy this week was Chicken! I just wish hubby would not want to go out to eat so much, we would be saving soooo much money. So this weeks menu came by easy for me because I had left over sauce from the pizza... which I will be giving a review of the crust later this week as well as the Organic spaghetti I bought! yum! And I also have the new Kashi bakes that I want to try, the rest just fits into place because hubby has been feeling like eating more Mexican dishes and those are easy for me, well, because I'm Mexican-American.

Oh, and last week the only thing I didn't make was the Tuna Mels because we went out to eat instead. Hubby took me on a DATE! We went to Buffalo Wild Wings. He went to take me out, but also because he wanted to try their new burger the Big Jack or something like that. I had the Parmesean Garlic Chicken Flatbread, wow... I don't think he wanted to kiss me after that! Lol. His burger had pul…

Monday Must-Sees

I'm a day late.... laundry took over last night. I'm trying to include ones that end in a week or longer. My favorite this week is the squeak me shoes! So adorable, I saw these at the mall the other day, so adorable! Of course my little one is 6 months, not walking yet. But I can still buy for next year, right? DH wouldn't let me anyways, so I hope I win them! He can't argue that. So here is this weeks list of Must-Sees Giveaways!

From DirtyDiaperLaundry she has reviewed the Kiwi Pie OS diaper. There is a video so you can see a demo and her review of how it works. To mee it looks like it might leak, but give it a try. They have cute designs available. They seem kinda modern to me and one that you wouldn't want to cover up. They do not have a seal on them, so if you are going out, they'd need a cover. Here's the link: Kiwi Pie Giveaway. This giveaway ends on October 5th.

Next is Three Green Peas Review of Smart Mom Jewelry. You know, when you think about it, …
