It's the Simple Pleasures in Life...

Quote for the Day:
Just living is not enough.  One must have sunshine, freedom, 
and a little flower.  
~Hans Christian Anderson

Sometimes it's life's little pleasures that can make my day.  Like some fresh-cut flowers from my flowerbeds...

Or a porch swing...

And, of course...warmer weather...

Andy & I came down with colds on Sunday night so we haven't felt exactly up-to-par.  But we've both been working, none the less.  It takes more than a nasty cold to keep us down.  LOL  

However, last night at work I suddenly lost my voice.  Just like that.   *snaps fingers*.  My voice was there with me...right where it belonged...till about 8:30 PM. was gone.  :(    I turned to talk to my co-workers and to both of our voice was not where I had left it.  Weird.  This is only the second time I've ever had laryngitis in my life and it's very inconvenient!  :P 

I did my Rite Aid and Walgreens couponing today and had good purchases/results at both places...

At Walgreens, I purchased these items....

My out-of-pocket was $13.11 but I received $11 back in Register Rewards to be used as cash towards my next purchase.  (If you are wondering why I didn't pull the $1 coupons off of the Your Life vitamins and use them, I already had 2-$2.00 coupons and used those instead.)

At Rite Aid, they once again gave me free items and PAID me to remove them from their store!    This is what I bought...

My out-of-pocket was $13.61, but I received $8 in +UP to be used as cash on my future purchases.  I will also receive a $7.99 rebate from Rite Aid.   In addition, once again, at the bottom of my Rite Aid receipt there was an offer to earn a $3 off of a $15.00 purchase by going online and filling out a questionnaire regarding my shopping experience.  This is the THIRD time in a row that I have received this offer/coupon!  :)))   Love it love it love it!  Keep 'em coming, Rite Aid!  :)   All in all, this shopping trip to Rite Aid became a $5.28 money maker for addition to getting some very useful items!  :)

Thank you for stopping by my blog and thanks for listening to me ramble!  :)  Hope your days are filled with simple pleasures and great bargains!

  1. I wanted to get the Hot Shot too and I had printed out 2 of the $3 MIR but my Rite Aid didn't have the individual cans. They had one 2 pack that was the same price of the two individual cans together but I wouldn't have gotten the +UP rewards nor would I have been able to use the MIR. :-( But I did the Got2Be stylers at Walgreens too!!

    Hope you and dad get better soon!
    Love You
