    Hey DrD I got the Pillsbury one in today's mail.....hang on just a few more days!!

  • Dr D Jan 9, 2017

    For those who signed up for the free Pillsbury and/or Betty Crocker 2017 calendars, have you received yours yet? I have not, and am starting to wonder if they were mis-delivered vs. late in arriving. Trying to decide if I should take a deep breath and buy (gasp!) a couple more calendars.

    Thanks twinredheads... I may actually try the system you use!!

    LINDABATES- I have been using the envelope system for several years and never found a single wallet that works for it. I have a MK small wristlet that I use for my grocery cash and there is a zippered pocket in my main purse that I use for household cash. For each receipt that I get I put it into the corresponding area of my purse and then reconcile in my Quicken account every weekend. I have found that it works pretty well.

    This is totally random but I am hopeful somebody here on the blog can help me! I am wanting to start the cash envelope wallet system and am looking a wallet to use, can anyone recommend one to me?

    I got freebies at Harris Teeter on Sunday. 6 free packages of 'lady supplies' and 3 free packages of Bic ink pens. The Bic coupon does not double but the Bic Stick pens are Bogo at 1.99.

    I know....I'm originally from NY so I think back of my days going to school in 8 inches easily! Different pace here- but it is welcomed and I love the fact that we get snows days!!!! Now I love them as an adult too ha. It is such a pleasure to be able to focus on my little ones without any other true distractions :-)

    ASCHERER - According to the ads on line :
    CVS has Coke & Pepsi products 12 packs 3 /$10 ( NOT my buy price ) .
    You get $10 ECB when you $30 of mixed items including the sodas ( page 3 of ad)
    Kroger's price is the same 3/$10 Coke and Pepsi products
    Walmart's prices vary - my store had all major soda brands $2.50 last week -
    I hope this helps

    We got 6 to 8 inches of snow with some ice.
    No way to go anywhere today . Probably not much at the few stores that are open .
