Why I Hate Buying Sweaters

I would like to know who the average woman is.

I know that I am shorter than the average woman.

Sweater-Hands #1

Who thinks this looks good? Do most women have unusually long arms that the sleeve would actually stop at the wrist? Or am I that weirdly proportioned?

How We Do School

Eventually every parent must make a choice, either conscious or not, about how their children receive an education. We chose public school. Today I'm guest posting over at Life As Mom discussing why.

After a friend alerted me that Blueberries were on sale at Aldi for $1.29/pint ... I just had to go out and buy some.

I bought 24 pints! Blueberries are my very favorite fruit - can you tell?

When they are in season I like to pick many pounds of them, unfortunately my schedule and blueberry season had conflicts this year. I only managed to pick about 10 pounds - not enough.  Most of them I will freeze so that in the Fall I can make Blueberry Applesauce for my daughter. I'll also use some in Purple Lava.

But I've also got plans for blueberry jam, blueberry muffins, blueberry scones, blueberry cobbler, blueberry buckle, Blueberry Boy Bait... Hmmm ?? I'm sure more ideas will come to me.

Do you have a good recipe for blueberries you'd like to share? I'd love to add it to my collection.

Staples School Supply Deal $15.15 After Rebates

There are a good number of free or almost free school and office supplies at Staples this week.So, after consulting a few blogs for coupon match ups,  I went to Staples today to take advantage of this week's back to school sales.

Total before sales, coupons and rebates:  $54.83 (including 6% sales tax)
After sale prices and in ad coupons:  $45.83 OOP (I think I forgot a coupon and this should have been about $1.00 less)

After Easy Rebates & Staples Rewards come in: $15.15

I am a happy camper!

Have you found any great sales on school supplies?
