You´ve seen the Biggest Loser on TV, watched contestant´s struggles and achievements, and may have even thought, "Hey, I can do that!" Instead of waiting for the BBQs to be over and your schedule to open up, put all excuses aside and make a pledge to live healthier with the Pound For Pound Challenge.

If you´re a fan of the Biggest Loser, you may have seen several great General Mills products featured on the show.

Longaberger Basket

I purchased these Longaberger pieces at a
garage sale. I am a big fan and have collected
a few. The factory is here in Ohio and there
are many collectors locally.

Here is what I got :

Ok this was not cheap ! I spent $63.00 (gasp).
I normally don't spend this kind of money at a
garage sale but I thought the Strawberry basket
was unusual . The thing that I like is that it is a complete
set (lid,liner,etc.). The lid is signed by the artist and
the bottom is signed by 4 of the Longaberger family.
I thought this makes it worth something.
I can't seem to find out exactly how much it's worth.
Does anyone have any idea ?

I feel guilty about buying this . It wasn't a need but a BIG want .


New Bzzagent Campaign

My new Bzzagent campaign....Covergirl Simply Ageless!
As a Bzzagent you try new products
and create a "Buzz".

I'm excited to try the makeup!
What girl doesn't love new (free) makeup to try ?
I have lots of great coupons to give out too :)


Target Quick Shopping Trip

This literally was a 15 min. shopping trip at Target !
Its nice to have a game plan and be able to get in and out.

1 dish soap
            1 disinfectant wipes
              1 all purpose cleaner
      2 Fiddle Faddle
 2 Aquafresh
                 2 Pantene conditioners
   1 Ragu sauce
                         1 Lysol handsoap dispenser
              1 child"s head (haha)
             $9.xx after coupons

          The big expense here was the lysol dispenser. I have been wanting
           this. It was $3 after a Target Q and man Q , saving me about $7 !
    I was also over charged .40 for the sauce.  I won't be going  
  back for that . You have to watch your receipt this happens
often at my Target .

1 mac-n-cheese

Received a $3 off your next meat purchase catalina

I was hoping to get my hands on the razors and shave gel.
That would of helped me roll my RR. They were out of both :(
I did get a rain check though. I'm starting to ask for these now.
Why not...its for FREE items.

I'm thinking about getting more peanut butter...my son eats it
straight out of the jar with a spoon!

Goodies at CVS

2 Nivea body washes
2 Nivea chapsticks
5 Cereal cups
$1.84 got a $5 Ecb and $1 Ecb

The $5 was for the Nivea and the $1 was from having my
green tag scanned a couple times.

I had a B1g1 for the Nivea bodywash and chapstick + $1 off.
I got a CVS coupon for $2 off any bodywash out of the
"magic" coupon machine that I used...I was hoping for this since I didn't
get the $4 off Nivea coupon in my paper. I also used a $4/20
from my recycle bank points and a $5 Ecb that was expiring:)
Thats about $20 in coupons!

*** look for the Nivea with the bonus lotion***
