~ Review ~

Ebeanstalk is a website dedicated to selecting great baby toys and toddler toys.  They rely on the opinions and feedback of bloggers and moms around the country to continue selecting great toys to sell.  Their team of child experts also helps them pick out learning toys to make sure your child get the most out of his or her play time!

I took some time to explore and I gotta say I really enjoyed navigating the site.  It was super easy to find age appropriate toys for my daughter. The site is very well organized , with a sidebar categorized by age and gender.Also each toy has the recommended age right there on the description!

The toys look to be of very high quality, and good value.  I can't wait for Lily to enjoy one. Take a look for yourself,  I personally would love to buy the Learn 'n Fun sorter.  What catches your eye?

~Final Kmart Trip ~

I made my last Kmart trip last night and I gotta say I am glad I wont be going back there for a LONG time.  I was very surprised I didnt have any trouble until the last day.   I went to get in line and of course they had a very long line , they announced "Kmart shoppers if you have 10 items or less you can check out at the Jewerly counter."So I head on over to there,  I had forgotten my rewards card so I asked her to use my phone number, she scans my items and then my coupons and here's the rest of the story
Young Cashier : "Your total is $9.08"
Me: "Oh, Thats not right. Did my coupons double?"
Older Cashier "Double? "
Me: "Yes, its double coupon week"
Older Cashier " I thought it was just a day"
Me: Laugh "No I have been coming all week"
Young Cashier: "Yea they doubled"
Me "Did they all double because it should only be a $1 something"
Older Cashier "Are they on sale?  It wont double if its on sale"
Me: Laugh again..."The  Deodorant is on sale but the others is not , but either way I have been doing this all week" 
Old Cashier" Oh it wont double if its on sale"
Young Cashier "I dont know why it didn't let me see "
Me:  "Can you jsut void it out and I will go to the customer service"
Old Cashier :"Its not going to double if its on sale"
Me: "Ma am Even so if that was true the rest is not on sale, they should have doubled. I have been doing this all week. Can you just void it out and I will go to customer service"
Young Cashier : "Sure"
Older Cashier : "Its not going to double"
This went on for another 10 mins, while the younger cashier was trying to void it out. 
So I walk over to the service desk and of course they double......

~Another Kmart Round~

You are probably wondering how and why I go shopping so often , well this is part of my job. I save us as much money as possible, I do this by stockpiling items when they are cheap or free. Kmart just happens to be within 3 minutes of the house, and Walgreens and CVS are even closer then that.  If I didn't live so close I would never be able to do what I do. We are half way through Double Coupon Week and I am already tired of going. I still have some really good coupons to use, and $8 left on my gift card  so I will keep on going , you don't  come across deals like this everyday.

~Spring Cleaning Stock up Day~

We went ahead and did our Kmart trip early today (we may go back later too )  My out of pocket was a lot more then I was hoping for but I HAD to get cat food today. I have heard numerous reports that Kmart is actually doubling 6 coupons instead of 5, well Apparently that is NOT true. At least at my store they didnt, and all she did was scan it. I knew that was a possibility so I deliberately put the cat food coupon last so I only lost out on a dollar.   We stopped by CVS on the way home, I didnt plan to go so I didnt have my green bag tag or my extra care bucks with me.
