Hot Deals!!! I am not a shopper of EarthFare, primarily because it is about 25 miles away, but.... I am making a trip to Knoxville this weekend to do a Sam's Club shop and I stumbled over some info for EarthFare. First, if you go to their site EarthFare you can score a 5lb bag-o-taters!!! (with any purchase) There is also a Q for $1 off per pound of Brisket!! Can you say YUMMY?? but wait, there is more, you can sign up for a pantry makeover and then can print off a Q for trading in your less than healthy food for EarthFare Organic versions!!! I will report back!!

Great Idea from Jennifer!!

In case you don't know this....I adore my daughter Jennifer!! She is a wonderful daughter and she is a very tallented and smart teacher. I bring this up because of a conversation we had this past week. Jennifer was telling me about the items she has placed in her "treasure box" at school. Items that include: Johnson's Buddy Bar soaps and travel sized toothpaste (both we got for FREE using coupons) My thought here: if you have homeless items, why not find a teacher and donate them?! Teachers spend more money out of pocket than most realize. I also think that it is great that hygeine items are a big hit with the kids!! Way to go Jennifer!!!
