Check this out the next time the power goes out!

DIY, Dollar Tree, Harbor Freight, Uncategorized
Thanks to my wonderful husband, we are fortunate enough to have a generator.   Woohoo!  So when the power goes out we can push a button that will turn on the diesel beast and it will give us power to run the well pump, some lights, TV/DVR, refrigerator, freezer and pellet stove.  The generator has been worth every penny because it has given us piece of mind and comfort. Last night right before going to bed the power went out.  My hubby and I talked and agreed that it didn't make sense to run the generator and use the fuel, if we didn't need to right away.  Our refrigerator and freezer were very cold and we hoped the power would be back on soon. So as we collected our LED flashlights…

Dollar Tree: $1 Finds for Housekeeping and All Made in the USA!

Dollar Tree, Uncategorized
This week I ventured out with all 3 kids to the Dollar Tree, PetSmart and then Aldi for some grocery shopping.  The kids were wonderful!  I was hoping to do everything before lunch time but it was cutting it close.  I had to take a break for snacks and then again on our way home before we did lunch.    Next time, I promise myself we will leave earlier.  I'm a little fearful when the twins start walking because I'm sure they won't want to stay in the stroller. I went to Dollar Tree to check out some cleaning, organizational products, and pick up some yard sale supplies.  I was excited to find that they had their version of Oxyclean, a liquid Dishwasher soap and a black cleaning bucket.  The best…
