The first thing I'd like to share with you is a triple play.
The Sak Store is offering this fabulous Bag. Black background and beautiful clear colors to go with almost any outfit. The triple play?
#1 It's big, roomy can be used to carry all your essentials, wither off shopping or off for the weekend, measures a generous 23" in length by 16" high.
#2 The outer shell is made from 50% recycled wipe clean nylon and the interior is 100% recycled cotton.

Hope those will give you some fun time surfing the web through those sweeps. I would like to leave you with a tip for the week. When grocery shopping and you see a special on meat, or vegetables, get as much as you can afford. Key in the items on a google search along with anything else you may have on hand and check out the recipes using those ingredients. Then make double or triple or even quadruple recipes of this, doing all the cooking and baking at the same time will save you in days and weeks to come. Eat a portion for dinner and wrap up the rest for dinner later on in the week and freeze the rest in portions that will feed your family for one meal. Then all you have to do is heat and eat!
I do this a lot since I have to do most all cooking and baking for what we eat due to my special diet needs. It sure saves on time and also on energy later on since we can't eat out or buy take out or many ready to eat or precooked meals.
When we were still picking the fall raspberries I didn't let us eat them all up , instead I baked them in muffins and coffeecakes and just this past weekend we had wonderful tasting Fresh organic Raspberry GF muffins that tasted like I'd just baked them. A great treat when there's snow on the ground and the raspberries available are like $6 a pint with no flavor and aren't organic!
Hope this helps you save a bit this week, and that some of you will happily be winners in some of those sweeps!
