$25 Winn Dixie Gift Card Giveaway Box Tops For Education

The crazy, lazy days of summer are here, but that’s no reason to take a break on saving!
That's why you can find me shopping at Winn-Dixie at least once a week.  We receive the W-D sale ad in our mail every Tuesday.  I always grab my grocery note pad and make of list of the items I can save the most with that week.  I wanted to give you an idea of what I could do with $25.00 - hence the photo above.  This is without using any coupons and shopping only with my Winn Dixie savings card and their ad. Here's the breakdown:

Sanderson Farm Fresh Whole Chicken @ 89 cents lb = $7.70
Ritz Crackers - B1G1 Free @ 3.79
S. F. Jumbo Leg Quarters marked down to $1.49  lb. = $2.75
S. F. Fryer Thighs marked down to 67 cents lb = $3.27
Iceberg Lettuce @ 99 cents
Old Cape Cod Salad Dressing (I love this) BIGI Free =$2.99
2 Gatorade @ 88 cents ea = $1.76
2 cans CV Pork N Beans @ 58 cents each = $1.16
Grand Total $24.66 plus I earned 10 cents in bonus fuel bucks!!!

That's a terrific saving without clipping the first coupon.  Just think what it would be if you added coupon savings as well. 

Whether you’re hitting the road for a summer trip or hitting the books in the classroom this fall, Box Tops and Winn Dixie fuelperks! can help support your family’s adventures! Gear up on Bonus Box Tops for the upcoming school year and fuel up on great savings when you purchase participating Box Tops for Education products at Winn Dixie.

I also love the employees at my local Winn-Dixie.  Adrianna is the head cashier and has worked with Winn Dixie for years.  She never fails to have a beautiful smile on her face and makes each person feel like a V.I.P.  She feels like an old friend after all this time.  Love her.  She always asks about my family.

Announcing 2 Winners - Dry Idea and Pillsbury Baguette Chips

I hope ya'll all had a wonderful Independence Day despite the sweltery heat. 

It's been a non stop week here.  My sister, her husband and my nephew got here on July 4th!  Having family in the house for 3 nights with us was so wonderful.  All I have to do now is go bout a mile down the road to see them.  So much better than having them in Atlanta or Ft. Worth.  They're now moved in (sorta) and are new residents of the sunshine state. 

We haven't seen them in 3 or maybe 4 years.  Wow!  But we did talk nearly every day.  It's hard to believe that we can see them every day of the week now.  I'm so excited that we'll be able to spend the holiday together this year.  I hope to host Thanksgiving and even better a Christmas Eve party!  I'm happy just thinking about so many of us getting together.  My cousin's Greg, Bobbie and Amanda and her family live in the area and it would be such a treat to have them all join us.  And the biggest dream of all would be to have my son's family from N.Y. and my nieces and nephew from Atlanta all come home to gather together with us to celebrate the blessings of Christmas!

OOP's I got off track...  I wanted to announce the winners of 2 giveaways but first I want to thank all my long time readers and the new ones for stopping by to enter.  You really have been great about supporting the giveaways which makes it possible for me to bring more giveaways to you.  ♥

My new Great Clips Hair Cut and Lots of Painting

Remember my Great Clips Giveaway a few weeks ago?  Well included in that giveaway was a gift certificate for a free haircut and I finally got to go get mine cute.  And it feels so much better now.

The stylist that cut my hair was wonderful and she didn't even know that I was there because of Great Clips.  It was kind of like a secret shopping mission for me.  I just wish I could remember her name.  She really took her time with me.  No kidding, she spent over and hour on my hair.  She was very precise and had the sweetest personality.  On top of that there was no wait at all! 

I've spent big money on my hair before and can promise you I didn't get this kind of attention to detail.   I love that she listened to me and left the from long enough to pull back in a clip when I need to (sometimes it just drives me crazy.  Other days I can leave it down for a little more pulled together look.  The backs off my neck so I stay nice and cool in this tropical climate all summer.  Plus it's so easy to style.  In my book - that's a must.  

This is my cousin Greg with me.  We grew up playing together and have been close ever since.  Greg was sweet enough to go with me and Neil to Callahan to get some work done.  We stopped by the cemetary where our Grandma and Granddaddy are buried.  It was the first time I've been there since I was 15 in 1975.  Our grandparents died only 2 months apart.
West View Cemetery Entrance
How do you like the paint we chose for the office?  Just kidding!  Oh' my this was some paint job.  We have an office building in Callahan about 40 mins from where we live.  The last renter was a young lady who made and sold jewelry.  This is a LITTLE bold for my taste.  Hot pink with Zebra duct tape as border around the baseboards, ceiling doors and window.
What about the black wall as an accent?  Eeekkk.....We had our work cut out for us.  It ended up being a long day.  We painted to coats of Kilz on and then one coat of paint and it covered like a charm.

My biggest mistake of the day was NOT getting an after picture.  By the time the painting, vacuuming, mopping and cleaning the bath was done, oh yeah and loading the car, we were all whipped.  We are so grateful that Greg spent his day helping us.  We would have been there way longer if we had done it by ourselves.

We weren't too tired to all go home and then go back out for dinner at the Golden Coral that night.  We had went to Callahan on Wednesday, and Thursday was Greg's birthday.  I had over done on Wednesday and couldn't even get out of bed Thursday so we had to have a late celebration.

Saturday I was back over at the other house painting, while Neil worked on replaces the bath subflooring.  We've still got more painting, plumbing, flooring, and yard work to do.  My sister and her family are moving into it.  They're coming from TX and should be here Wednesday.  We can't wait.  I think it's going to fly by because we have so much work to do.  It's only a little over a mile away from us. Stayed tuned for more on that.

Have a blessed Sunday Ya'll....Tracy
