Food World has not had the best sales since they sold out, but I like shopping there because they have a lot of reduced items. For example, yesterday I went.

I bought:

A pack of Dole Shredded Lettuce (I LOVE shredded lettuce) for $0.99

A pack of those yummy soft sugar cookies with the icing and sprinkles for $2.00 (These were not out of date, they were in Mardi Gras colors, so they were reduced.)

Two Pork Tenderloins for around $4.00 each

A bag of bananas for $0.94

A tray of red potatoes for $1.04

A large package of Luncheon Meat for $1.00

All of the above was reduced. I promise you, in this house, it will all get used before it goes bad! Publix doesn't reduce food. I know they give their bakery items to the church, but what about the other items? I questioned them one time about their meat. I asked when their mark down days were. They said they never marked their meat down. OK, so what do they do with it then? Throw it away? That is absurd! I have ALWAYS purchased meat on mark down and have never had any problems. If it doesn't look good, I don't buy it. What I do buy, I either use within one day or freeze it the day I buy it.

Taste Buds

Did you know that your taste buds "dance around"? OK, I DID know that, BUT I just had to smile when my just turned seven year old, Isabella, told me that yesterday. It sounded so grown up to hear out of her mouth! She wanted me to try some Golden Puffs cereal which I really do not like. She said, "Mom, you need to try it again, you know your taste buds dance around and you never know, you might like it now!" Little does she know, that I will now use that statement on her now! LOL

Computer Virus

We got a computer virus late Monday night. UGH! I can't live without my computer! LOL

Good News though, my husband researched the virus from his computer at work and found exactly what virus was affecting us. It also gave about 20 pages of instructions on how to repair it. He spent HOURS on the computer last night, but it looks like his determination worked! I am back up again!!!

It was a strange virus that I have not even heard of happening. An anti virus company hijacks your computer in a way and will not let you do ANYTHING on your computer until you buy their program which was $50 for only three months! I do not know how the virus gets onto the computer but it gets on there and hangs out until you restart your computer, then it goes crazy. We accidentally restared the computer Monday night when Don tripped over the cord. He ended up getting it off the computer without us having to give this horrible company any money. Yay, Don!!!

Subway $5 Foot Longs, Instant Win Game and Reusable Kid's Meal Bags

Subway is doing their $5 foot longs again. They say on all subs, but in small print this excludes their Premium Subs. Right after they stopped doing it on ALL subs close to the beginning of this promotion. I went in and order my husband a steak and cheese. They told me it would be $11. What, $11 for ONE sandwich???

You can also go here: and play the new Instant Win twice FREE before you have to start entering codes. You can also get additional FREE entries by sending an e-mail to friends or adding them on Tweeter. It's funny, on the Token Tumble Game, you have what looks like 7 chances to win a prize and one cup to win a FREE game again. You could win FREE Foot longs for a Year, Dinner for the Family, Cater Lunch for the Bunch, a FREE Foot long, or a Fan Shirt. You have only one cup where you can loose, well... it is really funny how the coin ALWAYS seems to find the one cup to make you loose! LOL

Also, don't forget the cute reusable lunch bags you get with the kid's meals now. We have the pretty purple one. Isabella has been using it to take her lunch to school. It doesn't keep anything cold, but is definitely cute!

Dockers FREE Pants Instant Win Game through 2/15/10

Want to try to win those Dockers pants that they were giving away on Super Bowl Sunday? Play their Instant Win Game here: Dockers gave away 2,010 FREE Dockers Pants on Super Bowl Sunday.

Checkbook Venting

Just finished balancing my checkbook after a week or so of not... Why is it that the withdrawals are so many and the deposits are few and far between? Why is it that the checkbook is always off a strange amount like $8.67??? Why is it that you give your teenager a check to take to school for something and she looses it for like a month and then without even telling you finally turns it in? Awe, the mysteries of the checkbook! LOL

Out of It

OK, I have been out of it since before Christmas. Just a lot going on, not getting everything that I need to get done done, problems with my new website, a cold, helping to take care of an older lady, etc. OK, enough excuses! I am back! I have spent my computer time entering contests rather than blogging. I am hooked to contests! I guess it is because I seem to keep winning! Nothing major yet, but just yesterday I won two tickets to see the Princess and the Frog movie! I am now coming back to blogging! My sister kicked my butt yesterday because I have not updated my blog in FOREVER! It is about time I get back to it! I enjoy it so much. Believe it or not, since I stopped blogging, I stopped bargain shopping! That is SO not me! Really though, I haven't done hardly ANY shopping since right after Christmas! I am NOT going to give up on my contests though either! I can fit it all in! OH and by the way, the HGTV Dream House IS MINE! That is what my big win is going to be!!! That and then a trip to Disney World or maybe a Disney Cruise...
