Market is crappy here right now so we will see what happens. Our HHT is booked and we are heading to ottawa from the 9-18 November. Hopefully we will find something good. And hopefully our house here will sell soon.

Finn started crawling this week!!! It is a leopard crawl and is soooo adorable. Logan, Finn and myself are all sick. It sucks but hopefully it will pass soon.

some awesome deals from this week:

At London drugs I had 3 stacks of finish coupons for $8 each. So I got 3 20 packs of Finish Quantum powerball all for free. I also picked up a windex on sale for $3.99. I used a buy one get one free coupon and a save $2 when you buy 2 which meant I got 2 windex for $1.99 total.

Superstore has dove hair products on for $2.99 which is an awesome deal. I bought 3 shampoo and 3 conditioners. The coupon zone has $1.50 off any dove product but says one per family. They let me use 2 of those coupons and then I used 2 save $2 when you buy 2 dove product tear pads giving me $7 off of my total and a few superbucks that I had. Total cost for 3 shampoo and 3 conditioners came to $10.36 out of pocket.

Logan is now addicted to my Nintendo DSI on top of Little big planet on the PS3 and mario brothers on the WII. He is sick so I let him play it a bit more than normal this weekend.

Hoping that we feel better super soon.

Last weekend Marjorie and Jerry came up to watch the kids saturday night so Paul and I could have some alone time. We had side by side massages at oh spa and then we went to dinner and then to the party at the legion. Then we had a free hotel room at old house because of my vip spa membership. It was wonderful!!!Thank you so much to Marjorie and Jerry. We love you sooooo much,.

Love always Rae-Lynn, Paul, Logan and Finn

My first stacking trip to London Drugs

Today was a busy day. Paul and I had a meeting about the posting at the base for almost 2 hours. The kids were at daycare with the lovely Janice!!! I forgot to drop off a bottle when I dropped off the kids so I went over and nursed Finn on my way home. I spent some time organizing my coupon binder and putting coupons away and getting rid of some old ones.

I took a look at the London Drugs flyer and thought I was going to get some crazy awesome deals and then I realized that my charmin coupons weren't stackable. I still went because I thought I could get some good deals and wanted to try out stacking.

Similac formula is on for $24.99. I had 2 cheques from the company worth $10, and $5 as well as another $5 off coupon so I paid $4.99 for a container of formula.

They have all dove products on for $2.99. I got a nourishing oil shampoo for $2.99 minus my $2.00 off coupon so $.99 and then a visibly something body wash on for $2.99 with a $2.00 off coupon and then I used my save $2 when you buy 2 dove tear pad coupon so those were free.

They have pampers Size 4 52 diaper packs on for 2 for $26.99 or $16.99 each. I picked up 2 and unfortunately the P&G coupons aren't stackable but I was able to use a $5 off coupon on each one. 104 diapers for $16.99 sweet!!!

They had the scrubbing bubbles extend a clean on for $6.99 and I used my $3.00 off coupon. The scrubbing bubbles toilet gel was also on for $3.99 and I want to try it out so I used my buy one get one free coupon and got 2 for $3.99.

My bill was $32.00. I used $43 in coupons I believe. Was sooooo awesome!!!

Logan turned 4 on October 5th and it was a great day. Marjorie and Jerry came up for supper and we went to Boston Pizza to celebrate. Was a wonderful birthday!!

Love Rae-Lynn, Paul, Logan and Finn

deals and update

Took Logan to the dentist today and the dentist said everything is great!!! Both boys are doing well.

Tomorrow is Logan's 4th birthday. Unfortunately they will be at daycare since I have a medical at 0730 tomorrow. Logan has school as well. Oh well, we will celebrate tomorrow night. He can't wait. I have a bunch of running around to do for his birthday anyway and some more cleaning.

Safeway has speedstick on for $2.49. If you use the coupon that came out in redplum or smart source a couple of weeks ago then it is $1.49. If you buy 3 you earn 25 airmiles. Today is also customer appreciation day so double the airmiles or 10% off I believe!!! Also if you spend $75 you get a $10 giftcard.

That's all for now.

Love Rae-Lynn, Paul, Logan and Finn
