Great Deal at Pet Smart

Yesterday, I went to Pet Smart to pick up some rabbit food. While there, I also picked up some cat food that I had a coupon for a free four pound bag of. The four pound bag was $10.49, this is more than I pay for a normal 20 lb bag, so it was neat to get it for free. Then when I picked up the bag, there was a coupon on the front of the bag for three free pouches of the wet cat food. They were normally .61 each. So I got up to the register, not sure the pouches would be free, since I had a free coupon for the cat food, but both coupons worked! My cats are feeling very special! But to make it even better, when we flipped the rabbit food over to find the UPC code, there was a tear in the bag. She gave me 15% off and taped it up good as new! It was a good day at Pet Smart!

Back in December I won this shirt for being a participant in Tiany’s Holiday Open House. This shirt was provided as a prie by the Homeschool Boutique. It arrived just last week and I love it!
If you are looking for neat Homeschool items, there are plenty of things at the Homeschool Boutique that can tickle your fancy!
For instance, every homeschooled child should have one of these shirts to head off those common questions!

Or maybe a Principal Dad shirt would be to your liking! Go over to Homeschool Boutiqueand take a look when you get a chance. There is a little something for everyone in your homeschool family!

Inspirational Gift Gallery

During Bloggy Giveaways I won this beautiful Bible tote bag from Elaine at Inspirational Christian Stories, Poems, Gifts
This beautiful and durable bag arrvied yesterday and I am so excited. I am currently filling in at my church’s Awanas group for a gal who is out having a baby and this tote will be perfect for carrying my Awanas items in.
Elaine is a work at home mom who is in the business of helping others to spread inspiration. Think about it, when you give a friend a gift with a bible verse on it or you carry a purse with scripture on it or drink from an inspirational coffee cup at work, you are opening up the way to witness to others. I would encourage you to support a WAHM and to increase your role in spreading the Good News by shopping at Elaine’s Inspirational Gift Gallery.
Remember, while we all may wear our crosses to church on Sunday and carry our inspirational bible covers to church, it is important to show those signs of our belief in our everyday life. So if someone has a question, we are a beacon to invite them to learn more about our Savior. If we don’t have any outward appearance of our belief, then we lose that opportunity to reach out to others who might otherwise approach us.
God bless!

Custom Design Your Christian T-shirt Online

This coming summer, Jack is looking forward to going to bible camp. I just found out a great site that I will be sharing with his camp leaders. It is a site they can go to in order to create custom christian t-shirts. There are several basic styles of shirts: hoodies, v-neck style, round neck style, different colors, and different sleeve lengths.
You can start with one of their design ideas and customize it to suit your needs or you can completely make up your own design. It is soooo easy and fun! I thought I would try one out and see. I started with the Mountain Camp shirt because we live in the piedmont of Virginia and can see the mountains! I could choose the color, upload my own graphics, and type in my own text. I can add clipart, shapes and personalize the shirts and add numbers. And the company offers free standard shipping in the U.S. The site is easy to use and help is always just a click away!
Go ahead and design shirts for your youth group, church sport team or bible camp. You are sure to have fun and to be pleased with the results

Homeschoolers, Educators and Students, Listen Up! Microsoft Discounts Are Available for You!

The vast majority of computer users have Microsoft products on their computer. And every couple of years, Microsoft comes out with a new and improved product, but this also means there is a new and improved price tag. Because Daniel is a computer consultant, we always have the latest Microsoft products. It is necessary for his job and a business expense for us. But there are many others who would like to update, but find the cost prohibitive.
Well, I have found a solution for you! Check out www.CostCaptain.com! This website has a section that is dedicated to educators. If you are a qualified educator, you are eligible for tremendous discounts on several Microsoft 2007 products.
You may be eligible if you fall in one of these categories:
– Accredited Educational Institutions
– Administrative Offices & Boards of Education
– Faculty and Staff of eligible educational institutions
– Enrolled Students of eligible educational institutions
– Public Libraries
– Public Museums
– Home-School Programs
I have found Microsoft Office 2007 to be a vast improvement over previous Microsoft Office products. The layout is more user friendly and I am able to navigate through the Office Programs with ease. There are many features that I have found useful in my day to day activities. If you are in the field of education, you know how useful programs like Excel, Word, and Publisher are. I also really like the new Microsoft Photo Editor. So, if you have been wanting to upgrade, but funds have been low, then check out www.CostCaptain.com. Your budget will thank you!
