My SWEET WalMart find!

I am not a big fan of WalMart- at all. Since I began using coupons, I barely step foot in the place. I know, I feel like a heathen not going there on a regular basis like the rest of America, but I find much better deals at the more "expensive" stores (more on that later). 

However, I did make a quick run to buy some last minute items for a Scentsy party I had on Friday. I also needed to buy a gift for my nephew's 8th birthday the next day, so I perused the toy isle for the right gift. 

Little did I know that I would find an AWESOME toy deal!

I got Toy Story 3 figurines for $1 a piece! Yes, a buck! Uno! I couldn't believe it! These buggers sell for $7 normally, so I hit the jackpot when I found these!

That particular WalMart also had a Clearance tent outside since they are renovating the inside. There were a ton of other great deals for people to gobble up.

If you live in the Tulsa area, head over to the WalMart at Admiral and Memorial. You won't regret it!

[Free!] Homemade Bubbles

This evening my husband took my daughter outside to play with bubbles. Just a few moments after they shut the door, they came back inside and said that the bubbles were no good and we would have to buy more. Being the frugally-minded person of the bunch, I looked up a recipe for bubbles, grabbed the few items I needed (I already had them in my stockpile thanks to coupons!), and away I went! I just reused the container that the other bubbles came in and Wah-lah! Free bubbles! Now my daughter and my wallet are very happy! :)

Want to know how I made these frugally-fabulous bubbles? Well here's the recipe:

1 cup water
2 tablespoons light Karo Syrup or 2 tablespoons glycerin
4 tablespoons dish washing liquid

Mix together and enjoy. :)

Happy Bubble Blowing!
