A few weeks ago, I was asked to review Picture Collage Maker for Mac. I was really excited to do this review because I have never really made my own picture collage… I have had Walgreen’s make a few boring ones for me (because I got them for free…), but I’ve never really played around with making one. At least, I don’t think so… It is possible I just forgot, but whatever.
Last month, I wrote a post on sale cycles and what it’s okay to buy in March. If you didn’t read it, you should. I know it’s not March anymore, but it gives you a basic overview of why you should follow sale cycles. Read it here.
But now, it’s April. And I’m really late on getting this post out. Hopefully, some of you still have time this week to take advantage of these sales.
What It’s Okay to Buy in April
On Saturdays, I try to get any last minute deals before the sales change. Today, I grabbed this one. It’s not really a last minute deal because it’s been available all week. I just haven’t had time to get it.
What I bought:
2 Kellogg’s Raisin Bran 2/$4 ($1 ECB wyb 2) = $4
2 U by Kotex Liners, 18 ct. $1.57 = $3.14
Total before coupons: $7.14
$1/2 Kellogg’s All Bran, Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes and/or Raisin Bran printable
(2) $2/1 U by Kotex product printable
Total: $3 (if your CVS adjusts the Kotex coupon down to $1.57). You will get $1 ECB back, so $2 for those four items? Eh, not too bad. The cash register will read those Kotex coupons at $2 without beeping or anything (it does beep at some coupons with overages, but it didn’t with this one), so if your cashier doesn’t adjust them down, you will get everything for $1.14 after ECBs.

I know I promised a CVS post last week, but between kiddos, work, school, and allergies, I didn’t get much of anything done. By the time I got around to posting the great deals I got, the week was almost over and most of the shelves were picked clean. I have at least one more trip planned for this week, but I thought I’d get this up, in case anyone wanted to grab some of it today.
I’ve mentioned quite a few times that we spend a lot of time in our van. A lot. Being 800 miles from home will do that to ya. For the most part, I don’t mind the traveling. I love road trips. The longer the better. Except one thing. I absolutely cannot stand public restrooms. I’m not saying they are all nasty. I’m sure there are some good ones out there. If you operate a business on the way from Austin to south central Nebraska with a super clean public restroom, let me know. We’ll hit you up next time. But until then…
A few of you may remember this post in which I talked about all the goodies we keep in the back of our van. One of the things we always have is toilet seat covers. Always.
I am always, always, always seeing super cute outfits on Pinterest. Usually the link is for a collection that someone has put together on Polyvore. These collections are mostly awesome. They have all the pieces pictured separately and usually include designer information, price, and a shopping link. You just buzz on over to Polyvore, buy all the pieces of a cute outfit, and all is right in the world. That is, if you have $1000 to spend on a scarf… To be fair, some of the pieces are affordable. It just depends. But I have yet to find an outfit that doesn’t have at least one piece that is super duper expensive…at least for people on a budget.
So today, I thought I’d help you copy one of those super cute outfits without going broke.
Sure, it’s cute… But let’s look at the price. This outfit is waaay out of my price range.
But let’s see what we can do to bring it down.
