Rosehill Auction

If you haven't had a chance to make it down to Rosehill Auction, tomorrow is the last day to take advantage of their awesome  sale.  Saturday October 30th 2010 is the final day of their supplier incentive sale, which is 40% off their sticker price.  If you have never been there before, they sell pretty much everything for your home.  Fridges, stoves, washers, dryers, dishwashers, couches, beds, mattresses, cribs, strollers, snow blowers, the list goes on and on.  They always have different things coming in, never have a flyer because they never know what exactly they will have to advertise.  They hardly ever have a sale like this, so if you have time today or tomorrow check it out.

Some of the sales at the moment


To all of my friends who love Old Navy, they are having a huge sale on all their outerwear.  You can save up to 50% off for the whole family starting today {Oct 29 2010} until November 10 2010.  Just in time for the really cold weather.  As an added bonus right now for a limited time you can get free shipping when you buy $50 or more.  To see if you can save even more, become a fan of Old navy on Facebook and click the tab for Barker's Bones, once a week you can dig up a coupon.  http://www.facebook.com/oldnavy?v=app_10442206389


Toy Story 3 is almost out!  This was the 1st movie we have ever brought our daughter to see in theater, so I'm super excited to bring it home for her. The cheapest place to get it (Nov 2-4 2010) is Walmart $29.93 for the blu-ray combo pack and Zellers $29.99.  As an added bonus from Zellers you will get a free lunch box, how cute is that.  Worth the $.06 difference from Walmart in my opinion :-P AND get a $10 savings card when you spend $50 between Nov 5 - 18{Zellers}.  If you click on the link I provided up above,  you will also get a coupon to save $8.00 on top of that!  That's why I had only listed the blu-ray combo pack prices, because with the coupon they will be cheaper than the dvd on it's own.  Disney has said on their sites that all blu-rays are sold as combo packs, meaning you get BOTH the blu-ray & dvd.  
{You will have to join Disney Movie Rewards to be able to print out your coupon, which is no biggie because as you buy Disney movies you will get codes in the box to get points, and redeem when you have enough}

Until Oct 31st 2010 The Cloth Diaper Shop in St Catharines Ontario is having a sale on their Perfect Size FuzziBunz pocket diapers. Act fast to take advantage of the sale.   Reg. they are $23.95 and the new colours are on sale for $18.95, discontinued colours for $17.00.  These are fantastic cloth diapers.  They also have an online sore for those of you not in St Catharines.  Be sure to browse through their other sales that might be of interest to you.    

Peekaboo Bottoms in Welland Ontario is also having a sale on their Perfect Size Fuzzibunz pocket diapers. They were reg. $24.00, now on for $19.00.  Their sale is running from now until Oct 31 2010, so act quick.  They also have an online sore.  Be sure to browse through any of their other sales that might interest you.

Some freebies of the moment

You will come to find that nothing makes my day like a freebie.  I know I'm not alone...so I will post them as I find them.  I love getting mail-that's not bills. :-P  Be sure to right click and open in new tab or new window.


This site is pretty new, and has already been loaded with members.  It is in invite only page {if you would like an invite, just send me a msg with your email and you'll get an invite in your mail}
It is ONLY for Ontario residents, and those that live close enough to Toronto as most of the redeemable prizes will be there.  In 1 day I already had enough to redeem, but am holding back hoping to cash in on something awesome.  You can connect it to your social media such as www.facebook.com or www.twitter.com to get bonus points, and to let your friends in on this find.


P & G BrandSampler.  If you haven't heard of these, I'm glad you now have.  These come out every so often and are filled with samples designed for you.  You will have to join, fill out a questioner and based on your answers you will get a cute little package filled with goodies.  {Just a heads up the amount of samples you will end up with depend on the time of day as they seem to restock every so often during these times, and if you already use most of their products you won't end up with as many samples}


Marble Slab Creamery.  This is a yummy ice cream shop.  You have to sign up for their mailing list, but I'm sure it'll be worth it.  Here is what it states exactly-just for joining.  It says that if you join their mailing list, you will get a sweet surprise for your birthday.  Feel free to add family members as well.  Who doesn't love free delicious treats!?


I'm not sure how long this will be on for, but give it a try when you find this blog.  Cottonelle is offering you and a friend free Cottenelle Fresh Flushable wipes.  You fill in your info, then add  your friend's email  you would like to share this with.

That ends this session of freebies for tonight.  Follow this blog to find freebies as I find them.

A little about this blogger, and my plans for this site

My name is Avery, yes like the paper company.  I'm a stay at home mom to a beautiful and awesome 2 1/2 year  old girl., and proud of it! I'm married to my best friend, and share our house with cute little animals.
I had decided, and started a blog a while back.  I guess I wasn't really focused and never made much of it.  I am going to make an effort to succeed this time around.  This will be my time, where I can go to express my thoughts of the day and anything I think might be of interest to someone else.

I am into 'crunchy' parenting stuff, such as breastfeeding {yes my daughter Jayla is still breastfeeding, and I am proud to say so}, cloth diapering, making my own cleaners,  bed sharing, using the no cry it out method, among other things but this is what 1st popped into my head.

I have reasons for why I like the things that I like if anyone feels the need to judge or challenge me.  Each family, parent, PERSON has things that works for them.  No one can tell you what will work for you, it's up to you to  figure that out on your own, and trust me you will.  I think it's time we all try to be a little more understanding of one another.  I'm sure we're all more alike than we thought, since everything has a stigma attached to it.

I love coupons, sales and deals, and freebies.  I am looking forward to be able to pass those things to you, since they make my day.  Since we are a 1 income family, and not the richest out of those, we try to make our pennies cover a lot.

Me and the hubby have been together for some time, we have had our ups and our downs just like any other couple out there.  We have worked hard at things, and other times barely tried and got along great.  I would of course like to bring to the blog.

I will be posting product reviews of things I have tried.  Honest reviews.

I know it will take time to get everything up and running the way I am hoping for.

Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to read my blog.
