Asics Purple

One of my favorite places to find a deal on tennis shoes is 6pm. They always have sales and I love their FREE shipping!

Today they have up to 60% off their Asics shoes. These are my favorite running shoes because of their comfort and because they hold up really well. I put my tennis shoes through a lot so I need something that will actually live through it. Asics do.

The shoes above are the Asics Gel-Contend in electric purple/lightening/capri blue. They are only $34.99 shipped! It looks like most all sizes are available.


Or these Asics Gel-Contend in white/black/blue are just $32.99 with FREE shipping.

This is just a couple of the many that they have on sale. Check out all of them at 6pm!

Harvest Snaps or Snapea Crisps $.99 at Kroger!

$0.50 off Harvest Snaps or Snapea Crisp snacks

It may just be me, but I am obsessed with these things y’all! Pretty sure there are only about 3 servings in each bag and I usually consume all 3! They are actually very healthy and aren’t fried like potato chips.

If you share my same enthusiasm for these healthy snacks then this coupon might just be for you viagra et. Kroger carries them for around $1.79-$1.99 so with this coupon doubled, that makes them around $.99!

I’d grab this $.50 off Harvest Snaps or Snapea Crisp Snacks coupon and hold onto it for the next time you need a snack after shopping.

New Series: 21 Days of Affirmation

days of affirmation


I’m starting a new series today on something that I have always found difficult. If you’ve ever felt down on yourself or sought to really dig in and change negative thinking, you may have been told to say affirmations.

Affirmation, (noun)- emotional support or encouragement.

This is one of those things mentioned in Gary Chapman’s book The Heart of the 5 Love Languages. Words of affirmation is a biggie in that book. And he explains that some folks receive love better with sweet words. So your partner would benefit from knowing that so they can speak your looooooooove language.

But what about ourselves? How can we truly show that we love ourselves if we speak negativity about ourselves? I will be the first to say that I struggle with putting myself down on a regular basis. I have trouble actually believing positive words about myself, but  straight from the Bible, these are the ultimate truths. This is precisely the reason that I wanted to do this series with you. It’s probably more for me than you! I would love for you to join me in challenging ourselves to speak these truths over us each day.


The challenge: each day that I post a new affirmation, say them to yourself OUT LOUD at least 5 times that day. This can be when you first wake up, when you’re driving down the road, when you’re laying down to sleep, when you’re feeling low, when you’re feeling great about yourself, or at anytime you please. Even if all 5 have to be said in the same minute! There is power in words.

Each time a new affirmation is posted, add that one to the list! And at the end of this little challenge, I pray that you begin to believe these truths about who are you are not only to yourself, but to Christ. I’ll be sharing some of my thoughts about each of the affirmations and I’d love for you to give me yours as well. Let’s get started!

I am accepted

To the praise of the glory of his grace, in which he has made us accepted in the beloved. -Ephesians 1:6

How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! -Psalm 139:17

Even though we fall short of perfection (which is ok you know!), by His grace, we are completely accepted. It’s extremely hard for me to accept that I am accepted. If that makes any such sense at all. But the fact of the matter is that no matter what we have done and no matter what we will do, God will always have us.

His thoughts are always on us. They can’t even be numbered! It’s kinda like being in that beginning stage of love. You know, when you’re on the phone saying “no, YOU hang up”. God feels that way about us all the time.

When someone else says something bad about us behind our back.
When we wake up with nappy hair and stinky breath.
When our jeans fit too tightly.
When we were speeding the other day on I24. (this may or may not be a true story)
And even when we are hard on ourselves (which I am all the time), God still accepts us then.

How can we ever be worried about rejection with a love as amazing as that? I am going to ponder this very affirmation each day through this series.

Do you have trouble with feeling accepted by others? Do you find comfort in the fact that the only person’s acceptance that we need to worry about is God’s? Leave me a comment!

Beginner Publix Deals 4/21-4/29



When I hear from friends who haven’t started to coupon yet, one of the first things they ask is where to start. And the first thing I always recommend is to start by collecting coupons. This means getting a Sunday paper or two so your stash can start to grow. But often times they want to start before their coupons start to build. They get bit by the coupon bug and are anxious to begin! I don’t blame them, it’s exciting.

I thought I would try this out this week and see how it goes for you newbies. I’d like to hear from you if this helps or if any of you would prefer it a different way. I will also be sharing my favorite deals involving all coupons.

The deals below are the best deals for those just starting out with no coupons collected. This means that you’ll most likely need a printer at least to get them. If you don’t, you may want to ask a friend to use their printer. It’s worth it!

Friday Restaurant Round Up 4/18

Restaurant Round Up

It’s Friday, YAY! The day we have been waiting for all week. You might end up taking a break from cooking for lunch or dinner over the weekend. If you do end up going out to eat, then check out the coupons below before you go to save a little money!

Tips for using restaurant coupons:

  • Read all of the fine print. Know before you go what the stipulations and restrictions are on the coupon so there are no surprises at the restaurant, ie- buy one get one free entrees often make the lesser valued entree free not the more expensive, one coupon per table, etc.
  • Tell your server that you have a coupon before you place your order. This is a huge help for your server when preparing your bill. It also helps to make sure you get what you are entitled to according to your coupon.
  • Tip based on total before coupon. This is good etiquette, the same as if you weren’t using a coupon. Base your tip on your service as your normally would.
  • Coupons are good through the very day they expire.

Saving Money on Eye Glasses with Zenni Optical

Zenni Glasses


It seems like we are always having to buy things besides the essentials isn’t it? Like meds for that ridiculous cough (thanks to the weather that has no idea what season it wants to be) or for a last minute trip to the auto shop because of an oil leak. It’s never ending. And then you go to the eye doctor and your prescription has gotten worse!

Yes, you are going completely blind. Well, I am anyways. Or maybe you were blessed with wonderful sight like my husband! That’s awesome. But for those of us who are blind, we have to buy glasses. Even if only to wear at night before bed.

I have been using Zenni Optical for years. Ever since I found out about them, I have been getting my glasses there because I tend to go through glasses like I do my sunglasses. That usually means they get lost or I sit on them or a child has used them as a play toy. Whatever the case, I don’t like to spend a lot of money on them. And Zenni has been my go-to place.

The price of the glasses that you purchase at Zenni Optical can range from $6.95 all the way to $49+ but they all include your frames and lenses. Some add-ons are extra but here’s what they all come with for FREE:

  • FREE Anti-Scratch Coating
  • FREE Thin and Light Single Vision Lenses
  • FREE Full UV Protection
  • FREE Protective Case
  • FREE Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

And the last couple times they have sent me a pupilary distance measurer thingy. It comes in handy since you have to know that to order. You will also need to know your eye prescription (from your eye doctor). You can simply request it from them at your appt or give them a call.

The glasses above are just $6.95! They even offer bifocal and progressive lenses. Shipping is around $4.95. They will save your prescription so you can reorder if…you know, disaster strikes!

If you need glasses or are just thinking about it, save your money and check out Zenni Optical!
