We've Moved and gotten a makeover.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010


Thank you so much ladies, to all who took the time to enter and vote!  It was fun to see how we all keep our purses- and it really hit home that Debbie's advice was needed!  I'm surprised we didn't end up getting more clean purse entries, but I guess I shouldn't be really - we couponers probably aren't the most organized group ever!
Well, the votes have been tallied - and winners of the messiest/cleanest purses are....

Kellie Duggins: Messiest Purse #6

Well, I can say, I am super embarrassed to send in this picture, but here goes! The good news is, your Sunday article did inspire me to clean all my other purses that are not currently in use! I pulled up the trash can and started pitching the trash, made piles of things to keep and things to send to school (I teach Kindergarten). I even found a few things I had forgotten about. Now, I need to spend some quality time with this one and see if it helps. I did feel quite a bit better to get the others cleaned out. Now, when I get ready to pop out a Spring bag, it will be ready to wear!
Thanks, Time2Save, for inspiring me to de-clutter!

Jodi Pierce: Cleanest Purse #2

It's a large bag, but I do at least keep it organized and free of clutter...that's the one thing I seem to be able to I have a 20 month this is an accomplishment. :)

I'll be emailing you ladies shortly to get your addresses for the workshop gift certificates!


Just in case you didn't know, Kelly and I (Kasey) both homeschool our 5 and 6 year old girls.  As I was looking for a World Map puzzle today there are several I found that are awesome.  Especially compared to the $29.99 I paid at Staples for just a laminated world map, these deals are much better.  The map from Staples is going back, thank goodness I hadn't opened it yet.
