Need new silverware???

Are you looking for new silverware? Need that special something for an upcoming wedding or anniversary to give as a gift? Well check out this website that I have found for you: It is Arthur Cutlery:
fine cutlery

They area family run business with more then 100 years experience. They have many different styles to choose from, I'm sure you will be able to find exactly what you are looking for. They also have an array of other items; picture frames, candle sticks, napkins rings, children's sets and many more.

I've looked through this incredible website and was pleasantly surprised with the items that they have to offer, very nice selection. I'm sure whoever you buy for will be thrilled with your purchase.

If you undecided on what on design to go with you can try their sample service. You can try up to 5 designs with this service. You get a couple pieces from the ones that you are thinking about and then when they come and you see how wonderful they are, you can then choose which one you would like to buy. This is an excellent service and saves you and the company from going through the return process if you are not happy with your purchase.

So if you need that special gift for a special someone, check out this excellent website, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks to my sponsor: Arthur Cutlery

1 Pert $2.50

I also had a $1.50 coupon for the Pert which gave the cashier problems and she had to manually enter it, I thought she did but when I got to work and looked over my receipt, she never did. So my grand total should have been lower then what I paid.

My total for my first order was $3.68, but should have only been a little over a dollar if she would have used my other coupon and the carefree would have wrung up right. Got back $3.99 in extra bucks for the Excedrin and $2.00 extra bucks for the Carefree.

My 2nd transaction:
2 Oust 2/$5.00
1 Pert $2.50
2 Glade .99 each

I answered an email from my local Freecycle about some free toys and these are the ones that I will keep and put away for when our little one gets here.


Went to CVS yesterday to pick up some sale items. They were completely out of the Colgate and the Dawn that I wanted, so I just got the other items and a few extras. Total for all the above was $2.64 out of pocket, I saved $27.27 according to my receipt.
