Top 2 Tuesday....

Hello Friends!! I know....I am a slacker. But you knew that already. I missed posting yesterday. I am sorry. These swimming lessons will be over next week and I will have more time. Oh, wait, I am taking a 'bloggy' vacation next week. I guess I won't have my act together for a few more weeks! We had another fun filled weekend. We went down to the beach Saturday night and bar-b-qued with my family and some friends. It was really nice. My sis has a nice big boat (you can fit our boat inside of theirs) and so the hubby and Christopher had a sleepover with my brother-in-law and my nephews. It was a 'boys' night. They slept on the boat. I wasn't sure how Christopher was going to be as he only slept away from me once. But his dad was there and he was just fine. I still had Anthony, so I didn't get off that easy!

This week Top 2 Tuesday is 'tips'. Meaning any kind of 'tip' you can provide whether it be a cooking tip, cleaning tip, etc. to make your life easier. Here are my tips....

ONE. Do not leave a basket of folded laundry on the floor with 2 kids in the house or it will look something like this....


TWO. If you are planning on doing any kind of house renovations or even just planning on making a big purchase, buy Lowe's or Home Depot coupons on Ebay!! We did alot of interior work these past few months (painting, new mouldings, doors, light fixtures, new front door, etc.) and we saved a ton of money with coupons I purchased on Ebay. I got (10) 10% off coupons for just $3. That $3 saved me about $500!!

I never would have thought of the eBay coupon idea! That's actually really clever and now I'm going to have to try it!

Enjoy the time off! We're finally coming to the end of our summer here (school starts in less than two weeks), but I still love spending my weekends doing the fun summery stuff like BBQ's.

I am all for a good deal, way to go on the coupons. That's pretty awesome.

The laundry picture is quite funny! (Although I'm sure you weren't exactly laughing when you took it.) The same thing happens in my house, so I need to listen to that tip, for sure.

Great tip about the coupons too! I would have never thought of that.

I've had a nice folded laundry basket end up that way a few times. Ugh.

Thanks for the tip. I never thought to buy coupons on ebay!

Great tips! The hubs buys coupons on ebay sometimes...it can save you a lot of money if you have big purchases to make.

And, my laundry ends up like that a lot...in fact sometimes I fold it while I'm puttig it in the drawer just to avoid that debacle!

Great tip on the coupons! The picture of the boys and the laundry is too funny, that is totally what happens at my house.
My tip would be wash all you fruit and veggies when you get home from the grocery store so when you need them you save yourself some time.

I hop your next few weeks are great!
