Ideas on what to buy at Kohls for $10

May 20th, 2014 at 08:38 am

Does anyone have any ideas on things that I could buy at Kohls for $10? They sent me a free $10 to spend on anything email. I am going to swing by this evening to use it before it expires.

Some things I can think of
-Hand towels

Yesterday was a NSD. For lunch, I used my Chick Fil A card for the free salad. Went to the library to return books and big up an audio book.

DD2's Dad came over and took her to dinner and Target. DD2's backpack strap broke recently and the other was hanging on my a thread. He bought her a new one and a new toy. Gave her a dollar and she was a happy camper.

When I was driving into the neighborhood I saw him walking next to her as she was skating. That made me happy.

At work today we are having Lasagna House for lunch.

Weekend Update

After work on Friday I went to the grocery store to get groceries for the week. My mom came to pick up DD1 they were going to Dallas for the day Saturday.
We went to Panda Express and had dinner. After going to the grocery store I really didn't want to buy food but my mom likes going out.

Saturday DD2 fed a rolly polly to the turtle. It was a sight to see! Then we ventured outside so she could roller skate and locked ourselves out. Locksmith came and tried to really over charge me then finally settled on $125.That is an emergency and comes out of the emergency fund! Smile During that time when we were locked out I cleaned up the garage a bit and swept.

Yesterday we went to the pool, cleaned house and read. I finished one book over the weekend and I'm half way thru another.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

I got a check for $13.15 from Ebates yesterday.
I'm going to put that towards my mortgage. Every little bit helps!

In other news, a wonderful co worker that works in our accounting department decided to quit today. No notice given and she didn't inform HR. She just left her badge and sent an email to a select few and was gone. She had been having problems with her boss. I'm going to miss her.

Lovely Weekend

I had a three day weekend.

Friday, I was off for DD2's 8th birthday. I took the girls to have donuts then off to school they went. I spent the majority of the day walking around stores like a zombie not buying anything except for earrings. It's funny. When I'm off of work and the kids are gone I don't know what to do with myself.

When they got home from school we went and had dinner then home to watch a movie.

Saturday was the birthday party at the roller rink. The children had a blast. After we (mom, sister and her kids, me and the girls) all to dinner for Mother's Day. I really enjoyed dinner. We had such a nice time. The kids behaved very well.

Sunday we went to Target for DD2 to spend her bday money. She picked out a book and a What Ever After High doll.

I got my mom a magic bullet dessert machine. She didn't want to venture out so I didn't see her but my stepdad who came over to hang up curtain rods for me was able to take it back for her. She spent her day reading a book and finished it might I add. LOL!

The girls were so sweet to me bringing me breakfast in bed. They gave me a massage and handmade cards. It was a very nice weekend.

I spent $60 at the grocery store yesterday buying salads and snack packs at Kroger for lunches this week. We have enough food to eat from the pantry for the week and I've already made a menu. We really need to eat the veggies in the crisper drawer!

I was selected to be apart of the $5 Dinner menu plan beta program. Basically I get a weekly menu with grocery list for 6 months. Pretty sweet deal! I love Erin Chase. I've got 2 of her cook books and they are my fav! Since I have my menu planned for this week I am going to lag a week behind and use this list for next week's meals. I'm so excited and looking forward to someone else doing the work and trying to meals. I tend to stick to what I'm used to.
