Sunday Couponing...

Quote for the Day:

I can't believe how quickly this weekend has flown by!  :(  I had so many things that I wanted to get done, but sadly, I only got a few of them done.

I have been busily listing things on Ebay in an effort to get my sewing room back into a useable state.  I am still listing items that I got from the quilter's estate auction a few weeks ago.  There is so much that I want to list on Ebay, but it is time consuming and wears me down after photographing and writing up a few things, so I'm listing them a few things at a time when I have the time.

I also listed a piece of vintage Pyrex that Andy found this weekend for a STEAL!  

Isn't she gorgeous?  My research on the internet says this pattern was a promotional item from 1961!  She's 50 years old!!!  And not too bad for the wear, either!  :)  I've seen a lot of Pyrex in my day, but never this pattern of pine cones and pine needles.  You can find a lot of casserole dishes, but it's pretty rare to find the lid intact, too! 

There haven't been many sold on Ebay recently, but the last one did sell for $22.50.  So keep your fingers crossed for us!  :)

On a quilting note, I'm on the last "row" of quilting on the whole-cloth quilt and am hoping to finish it up in the next day or so.  I'll post pictures when it is completely done!  :)

On Friday, Erin and Dale closed escrow on their first house and have spent this weekend moving in!  I'm very excited for them and can't wait to see it when we visit in September!  :)  

Today I did my couponing at Walgreen's and Rite Aid.

From Walgreen's:

I got $51.52 worth of product, paid $3.76 out-of-pocket, got $14.00 back in Register Rewards, making this trip a $10.24 moneymaker for me!  :)

From Rite Aid:

I got $24.82 worth of product, paid $3.51 out-of-pocket, got $7.00 back in +Up Rewards, making this trip a $3.49 moneymaker for me.
