Masterpiece Theatre

Many years ago, when our boys were small, we were hosting my in-laws for dinner. My MIL and I were talking about how years ago many women would watch their "stories" (soap operas) every day. My youngest son blurted out, "Mommy; you watch your soap opera." I was confused and asked him to explain. He … Continue reading Masterpiece Theatre

Clean Ones Disposable Vinyl Gloves

This product review probably will tell a lot about me, some of which probably should embarrass me. I say "probably should" because as you get older, more things that should embarrass a person simply do not! I use these disposable vinyl gloves, that I purchase from Walmart, for EVERYTHING. Not kidding, I use them in food … Continue reading Clean Ones Disposable Vinyl Gloves

All-Clad Cookware

I spent the first 15 years of my married life constantly buying a new set of pots and pans every few years. One of the reasons for that was that many cookware sets only come in a nonstick version. I don't care if manufacturers of nonstick cookware advertise that their product will stand the test … Continue reading All-Clad Cookware

Walmart Grocery ~ Shop Online, Pick Up at Your Local Walmart

Our mid-size community has two Walmarts. One is close to our home so I decided to try their new online grocery service with pick up at my local store. First I have to confess, I am not a Walmart fan. I won't go into why but let's just say it is not my favorite place … Continue reading Walmart Grocery ~ Shop Online, Pick Up at Your Local Walmart

My product recommendation this week is Ebates. I have used shopping rebate sites for over 15 years and have saved several thousand dollars over that time period. I usually receive a check every 3 months with an amount between 50 to 100 dollars. That money is just for shopping that I would have done anyway. … Continue reading Ebates

Book Review

I purchased a little book from Amazon called "It's Never Too Late . . . 171 Acts to Change Your Life" by Patrick Lindsay. Each page begins with "It's never too late . . . The page I read today ~ "It's never too late to learn from mistakes. Take a wider view. Look at … Continue reading Book Review

I discovered Vitacost several years ago. I shop there to purchase my vitamin D supplements, Dr. Bronner's products, some health food items, and even flea treatment for Jinx and Juju! I use them because, for the things I order, they have the best prices. (Vitacost prices are very comparable to Thrive Market and Vitacost does … Continue reading

Corelle Dinnerware

When I was college-aged, girls that were engaged to be married registered two kinds of dishes; fine china for special occasions, and then stoneware for everyday. For my everyday dishes, I had an off-white stoneware set by Johnson Brothers from Marshall Fields. It served us well for many years and went with everything. Years passed, … Continue reading Corelle Dinnerware
