A taste of summer

If a strawberry twizzler in a can of soda doesn't taste like summer, I don't know what does.
As I was strolling around CVS getting my bargains ( 6 pack of Bounty Basic Papertowels on sale for $4.99 with a $1 off coupon for 3 :-))  I stumbled upon the strawberry chewy goodness that is the twizzler.  My impulse buy of the day, in hopes to settle my 5:00 sugar craving.  I didn't waste time to crack those babies open in the car.  Ahhh summer.
Josh stopped home on his 'lunch' tonight, and he declined a twizzler.  Stating it wasn't what summer tasted like, it's what going to the movies tasted like.  Oh well more for me then!
Yes, I just posted about twizzlers....it's the little things that excite me okay?!
What does summer taste like to you?

Hot Diggity Dog!

Now that Volleyball is slowly winding down...(2 practices and 1 4-day tournament to go but who's counting?)  I will pay you more attention.  First up this weeks DOTW.  Since Josh had a few days off he got to watch me in action at Walgreens.  Usually he'll wake up on a Sunday morning with me sitting on the the living room floor cutting my coupons and matching them up with the sale ads.  This Sunday as I caught up on my Housewives of New York I did some clipping, while Josh did some cleaning.

This weeks DOTW at Walgreens:
BOGO Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs:$2.99
                                    1 MFC $1 off 2
                                             $1.99 for 2 packs
Oscar Mayer lunch meat        : 2 for $5
2 Online coupons $2 off 1             - $4
                            Total for 2: $1!

So $3.99 for 2 packs of hot dogs and 2 packs of lunch meat a savings of $7.99, not to shabby if I say so myself.  The hubby was quite impressed with my savings.
