Thats all from yesterday!!  It was a great day.  There is a local church sale which is huge, it's the entire school including hall ways and gym packed with stuff!!  It is very well organized.  The workers are calm and smile!!  It's great!!  Last year it rained and the stress was still low.  The prices are very close to being right on.  Some prices might be a tad high, but still within rummage sale prices.  The sale is 4 days long, the first 2 days are normal and then the third day it's a $4 bag sale and furniture is half price and then the last day is free.  I would say half of the things that I bought yesterday came from the church sale.  There were plenty of sales on the streets surrounding the church.

Monte Minding the Store Puzzle by Charles Wysocki

How many times have you seen a Charles Wysocki puzzle in my rummage sale finds..  Well I started working them...  I have my first one done.  I love working puzzles. My favorites are 1000 piece.  Once I start a puzzle I don't want to quit and nothing else gets done around the house.  However I'm going to be better now... only work on them when I have spare time...  it's a promise to my self.  Lets see if I keep it!!

Multiple Blessings by Jon & Kate Gosselin

I just finished reading Multiple Bles8ings by Jon and Kate Gosselin it was published in 2008 so it's not new and really there was nothing in there that was news to me.  Except for did you know that NBC had a makeover home show of it's own called Home Delivery??   Jon and Kate were the first home they made over.  Here is a link to some before and after photos Jon & Kates first home  I didn't know any of this.  The rest wasn't news to me.  However Kate has a new book released a few months ago.  I have it on my request list at the library.  So I wanted to read the first book before I read the second.  The new book is called I Just Want You To Know Letters To My Kids on Love Faith & Family.  It ranked high the Best Sellers list when it was released but dropped fast...  hope it's good.  I will let you know..

Back to Multiple Bles8ings.  It was a fast read and not a long book.  I really told details about Kates pregnancy and life before the twins and before the sextuplets.  She seemed very open and honest about herself.  This book ends where the TV show picked up.  I have only watched the show up until I believe the end of season 3, the library doesn't have the rest of the seasons.. boo hoo!

Flea Market

Man I forgot to take pictures!!  

The flea market yesterday was good.  There weren't as many vendors as I would have liked, there was about 20.  There were many shoppers though.  My aunt and uncle did way better then mom and I money wise, but we were happy with our first time.  I think we will do it again.  But when I'm not sure.  I sold lots of my extra health and beauty aids and things that have been in my store a long time.  We decided on a time for our rummage sale, which will be the middle of September.  I will have a lot of stuff again, I can't wait!!  

I learned a few things, first and most important there are more men at Flea Markets then rummage sales, so I have to bring more things that men would be interested in.  And another important thing I would do next time is have a table that corrals all the dollar items and make a large sign that says $1 dollar table.  My aunt and uncle did that and that just drew people to that table and they stayed around to browse.  However our $1 stuff they just passed over because they were mixed in with other goodies... 

I'm sure there are other things to learn but that will be for next time!!

Flea Market in Crivitz Wi

Tomorrow I'm suppose to go to a Flea Market in Crivitz WI, I have never been there before.  We are just going to go as shoppers.  Crivitz is a hour and half away.  The weatherman say we might have another big storm.  Storms lately have been a normal.  We usually have 3 inches of rain all of July well we have had 16 inches so far.  We have broken the record days ago.  Anyway since we are suppose to have a storm tomorrow we are postponing the trip until next week Thursday.  So I planned to go rummage saling as I normally do on Thursday.  So I sat down to make my plan and there a barely any sales.  My guess the daily storms and the heat are stopping people from having sales.  Oh yeah we have had lots of humidity along with high 80 degree days.  I love the heat but the humidity is trying.  The ground is so wet the cucumbers are rotting on the vine.  When I pull the beets the hole where the beets came out of fills with water.  I don't know if we will have any carrots if this keeps up because they will rot in the ground before they get eating size.  I'm wondering if this keeps up we will have pumpkins in fall....   This Sunday is the Flea Market in Appleton which Mom, my aunt, uncle and I will be vendors.  I have just about every thing packed.  Mom is still working on hers.  I'm getting more exciting by the day.  I sure hope that we don't get any storms that day.

My Samsung Washer and Dryer review after 3 years


I have a pair of Samsung Silver Care front loaders.  They are 3 years old and I haven't had a problem with either of them (knocking on wood)  I bought the 3 year extending warranty and didn't use it.  I don't have the pedestals, however I get them if I could go back in time.  I have thought about having hubby putting cabinets or building something for underneath.  The reason.. they are deep, I bought the biggest they had and I have to really swat to reach in and make sure that nothing is stuck to the top of the washer drum.  Not getting any younger here!!  I haven't had any trouble with odor, however I leave the door ajar on the washer after every load.  My clothes are clean and not wrinkled.  I use strictly HD soap.  I live in the country so saving money on water isn't an issue dollar wise.  I didn't see a difference with my electric bill after I bought this pair.  However it takes longer to wash a load, 15 minutes longer.  But drying time is shorter because the clothes come out of the washer with less water.  I would pair this pair again.

Whats New?

 Whats new?? I'm now a power seller on Ebay.  Late last night I checked my ebay and I found the power seller logo next to my feedback score!!  I had no idea that was coming.  Nice surprise.

The new Copps store is beautiful.  Great big wide aisles!!  No kidding 3 carts can pass by each other!!  Loving it!!  The parking lot aisles are also wide.  No problems backing out.  Prices are the same as the old store and Pick N Save.  They have the first grocery store self checkouts around..  A side from Walmart of course.  I also noticed many Mexican type foods and many items labeled with only Spanish writing.  One only draw back of visiting this store was they had their Grand Opening ad going on.  Which I did NOT get in the mail or with the newspaper.  I didn't know the deals until I walked in the store.  First thing I noticed was their bulk peanuts were on sale for $.99 a pound!!  Man!!   Away these are the deals I got.  Ruffles chips $2 no coupon.  Cottonelle 12 pk $4.99 used $1/1 coupon doubled, I don't know where I got this coupon.  Scott Napkins on sale for $1.99 used $1/1 coupon that was doubled..

Thats all the deals for this week.

Longest Semi at Iola

Yup you are seeing that right there is a huge TV screen on the side of this semi.  It showed movies on it at night during it's stay at Iola.  It felt like the drive in movies!!    We watched National Treasure with Nicholas Cage!
Notice how many parking stalls it takes up!!! 

It's main use is for hauling around race cars and the screen is used for advertising which helps pay for the semi cost and up keep. 

1953 GM Futurliner Parade of Progress #10

This is a really cool bus.  I have seen it before at Iola, however none of the pictures had turned out.  So this time I made sure they turned out.  This was restored a few years ago.  There was only 12 ever made.  Back 2 or 3 years ago one of these sold at Scottsdale AZ auction for 4 million dollars.  I had toured it before, but this time I took Cassie ( a friend of Nicci's who came along with us)  and Nicci.  Cassie sat in the seat and then I told her she was sitting in a 4 million dollar seat, she freaked out a bit!!!  We talked to the caretaker of this a few times.  I just think it's so cool.  The bus is normally kept in Indiana in a museum, however Iola paid for the bus to trucked from Indiana to the Badger port on the Michigan side and then paid for it's trip over on the Badger and then trucked from there to Iola and then back home.

Iola 2010

We arrived on Wednesday morning about 10:30.  The morning started out very muggy and only got worse through the day.  The ground here was so soft from several days of rain, so the area that usually holds the trucks, trailers and campers that are waiting to get into the vendor areas was to soft.  So they started to hold everyone in the camping area until the threat of bad weather came about at noon.  So they started to let everyone in at noon.   This is a strict rule no one allowed on the grounds until 3:00.  Everyone was over joyed to be able to get in early and get an early start.  We were all set up when the rain started.  The rain was welcomed because of the humidity.  We did get some relief then.  Another shower came later but nothing to get excited about, however the grounds were hard on a lot of campers, trailers and motorhomes getting stuck in the mud.  We didn't have any troubles.  Thursday was hot and humid again.  Friday was just hot.  This morning we got up to hot and humid again.  2:00 a storm came through and chased many of the buyers back to their cars.  The storm had high winds but we came through it well.  Now I'm sitting in our trailer with the air on, however it did cool off and the humidity is lower.    We will be leaving tomorrow morning.  It's always so sad for Iola to end.  I've got pictures of the worlds longest semi (Red Giant) and the the 1950's GM Parade of Progress.  I will blog about the details and post the pictures when I get home.  We haven't bought anything to really get into details about... at least not yet!!  Well I better get back to enjoying the show.  I will be catching you up on everything..... take care.

Goodwill and other Deals

Yesterday my daughter and I went to Goodwill to pick up a few shorts for her and jeans for hubby.  OMG did we find the deals.  We bought 24 clothing items for just less then $100.  My daughter got 3 jeans and 3 jean shorts all name brand.  Hubby got 2 jeans, one was Lee brand the other was Carhartt jeans. Both were like new.  Seriously felt like new.  I got a brand new nighty with Kohls tags still on it.  Also got a brand new Victoria Secrets sleepwear top with tags on it.  I got 2 denim Levi shorts.  Numerous summer tops some with new tags on them.  We came home with 3 plastic shopping bags stuffed full.  I wish I would have thought of taking a photo.  No such luck.  I had seen a few things my son would have liked  but I wasn't sure.  So I didn't buy anything for him.  After he saw all the great things we picked up he went over there with his grandma.  He brought home one bag full of clothes.  Only one pair of jeans.  But he got 2 plaid shorts and many t-shirts!!  Name brand.  he spent $30!!!   I'm so proud of him and his choices!!  Not bad for a 19 year old. 

I shopped yesterday because I will be in Iola for the carshow on Wednesday.   Here are the deals I picked up.

Walgreens: Colgate Max paste $.99 after register rewards and I used a $1.00 coupon.  I don't know where the coupon was from.  Colgate Max toothbrush $.99 after register rewards, I used $.75 coupon from All You Magazine. Also picked up many of the mechanical pencils for $.19 for a package of 5.  Some of Walgreens summer items are 50% off this is what I bought for $7.50

I just think it's so cool!

Target had 30% dollar spot.  I bought my daughter a pair of flip flops, Rayovac batteries, a dog collar and bungee cords for $.70 each.  Mainly stopped to get my prescriptions filled.

Walmart: I have been pricing Piggly Wiggly's ad for $.99 for a whole watermelon!!!  Walmart also have 3# boxes of Johnsonville brats for $4.88 and I used $1.50/1 sunday insert coupons!!  Those are cheap brats!!!  I think those are 1980's prices!!  Lovin it!

Nothing special at Pick N Save: spent $11.44 and saved $6.95.  Thats not 50%!!  Man!  See what happens when I can't double coupon.

Festival Foods: Store brand mac and cheese $.39 each.  Cans of oranges $.44/1.  Bags of store brand frozen vegies $.69 with in ad coupon.  Eggs and Coke 2 liter bottle free with flyer coupon.  Store brand 12 package batteries $2.50.  Spent $9.05 saved $11.92.

Presto Digital Pro Fry Deep Fryer Review

Oh I like it!!  I bought it a Kohls.  Regular price $90, on sale for $35 and I used a 15% off coupon.  I have been looking at these for a while.  But my cool touch fryer was still working, however it was very caked with oil.  I sssoooo wanted to throw it away, but it wouldn't die!!  The basket is huge and it can fry a lot of food at one time.  It was easy to clean, however I think over time it will become more difficult to clean the element, everything else will be easy.   I just think it so weird to dump the oil on top of the exposed heating element.  If I do a lot of frying of breaded items the breading that falls off will land on and around the element.  Is that good??  I will be emptying it after every use, but it just seems wrong and maybe a little dangerous.

Being digital it gives you a warning beep with the oil is hot enough etc..  I like that, so it can't be forgotten.  There is also a timer for cooking length.  I don't think it's quicker in heating the oil nor the frying time.  The fryer is long and tall.  It just barely fits in my cabinets, so keep that in mind.

Sorry about the blurriness with the last photo.  But you get the idea.

Target also had this model regular price $59.  Over all I'm very happy with it, however I do believe as time goes on it will be very difficult to keep clean. 

3 days until Iola Carshow!!!! 

Wednesday Deals

Target: 17 pound bag of Alpo dog food on clearance $2.74.  Didn't have a coupon for that.  Then they had Kibbles and Bits 7.5 pound bags for $2.12 and I had $1/1 coupons from the Sunday inserts a few weeks ago. My total for almost 40 pounds of dog food $6.10, I can live with that!!

Pick n Save: Nexcare bandaids $1.88 used $1/1 coupons from the Sunday inserts and they were doubled, so free with overage.  Lots of misc store brand stuff really cheap and didn't use coupons.  Spent $37 saved $49.

Festival Food: Miracle Whip $.99 Limit 1 so I couldn't use the coupon from the Sunday inserts.  Grr..  Hunts ketchup $.49 used $.20/1 Sunday coupon.  Store brand bread free.  Oscar Mayer dogs $.99 used $1/2 Sunday coupon.  Cher Make hot dogs $3.98, no coupon.  Klemens Brat patties $2.99 used $1/2.  Free bananas with store coupon.  Good n Garlic pizza's $2.22 used my rain check.  Cool Whip $.61 with store coupon and used $.20/2 Sunday coupon.  Kraft Singles $.99 no coupon.  Kraft shredded cheese $.99 no coupon.  Spent $29 and saved $29.
