No bills, no junk mail!
I had admired a friend's toiletries bag after going away for a night together. She explained her mom had the website and would get me the information. Low and behold in my mail ended up this beautiful bag with my name embroidered on it. What a wonderful surprise. My friend's mom is so sweet and truly delightful. She lives in Virginia and whenever she comes up she is just so sweet.
My best friend also sent me coupons. You know you have the best friend in the world when she sends you coupons.

As I was checking out I had a great conversation with the woman volunteering about how frugality is in right now. I explained to her that I was thrifting before it was cool.
I hope everyone is staying warm im sitting in front of my pellet stove with the hubby Im blogging while he watches The Patriots. I've perfected ducking from his impromptu arm flails and jumping around. Good thing Miss Baby is a heavy sleeper :)
