Heinz Ketchup Deal!

As most of you are probably already aware, Heinz Ketchup is changing their recipe to contain less salt. If you hadn't heard yet, you can find one of the many MANY stories on it here. It's all a ploy for more government control over our lives but we won't get into that.

The whole point of this post is to make you aware so that you can keep an eye out for the really great deals out there as they are going to have to remove the old to make room for the new.

Case in point: On Thursday, hubby and I went to do some grocery shopping at Walmart. As I'm walking down the aisle I notice that the BIG 40oz squeeze bottles of Heinz Ketchup are on sale for $1 each. This, in my family, is more than a big deal. It's HUGE! We are always running out of Ketchup and I can't even stand the stuff. The boys and Andrea, however, will put it on anything and everything. Andrea, at 21 months, is a big fan of dipping this into that, including fingers when her edibles have vanished. We picked up 4 bottles of Heinz Ketchup then and will be going to pick up more this next week. What was on the shelf has a sell by date of July 2011 so that is more than enough time for my family to go thru about a dozen bottles and to get it for 75% off is the icing on the cake(or the ketchup on your french fry if you want to look at it that way). 
So, with this news in hand, if there are any coupons out there, now would be the ideal time to pull them out! Even without them though, this is not a deal to pass up! Be on the look out and don't forget that there are always shelters, food banks, schools and daycares out there that certainly wouldn't pass up a donation.
That is all I really have going on to post about at this very moment but that might change any second now so I will go ahead and cut it off here. Y'all have a happy Sunday and remember:

Honey-Do or Honey-Don't?

Well, TwitterMoms just posted a topic that I can't help but blog about: The Honey-Do list. You can find out all the information about how you can post and receive $100 in ServiceLive Bucks at TwitterMoms with a chance to win $250! My entire Honey-Do list is a big giant FAIL! Not only does it never get done, but it keeps growing!

The top 5 things that need to be done the soonest but will never get done:

1) FIX THE OUTSIDE PIPE! This past winter we had a pipe explode outside. Called out the plumber and he came and capped it off, taking the easy way out. Problem! That pipe where he cut it off not only fed that one faucet, but also the front faucet AND MY WASHER!! He refused to come out and fix the issue so it's been on my honey-do list for 4 months now. We've been running the laundry to the laundromat to wash and back home to dry! With all these kids, this is no easy feat and let me just say that we have a growing mound of clothes because it is such a pain to get away to do even one load much less the 2-3 we have daily.

2) Dig up my garden. Well, here it is MAY and nothing has been dug up except the hole in my front yard when the kids got a hold of the shovel. JOY!

3) FLEA BOMB! With Spring around here comes fleas. And we have seen more than our share of them and they really seem to like the 3 year old. She brought me like 6 of them yesterday...ON HER LEG! I sprinkled the Seven granules around the yard. Now we need to bomb the inside. I can't remember and his job is to remind me when we go somewhere to do those things that we are supposed to do. We've had the bombs for 2 weeks and there they sit on the kitchen counter.

4) Find the license plate bracket for my truck. So, evidently cops have issues with a license plate being stuck in the front window. It matches the one on the back bumper so I don't see what the problem is. Hubby got a warning a few months back about it and he made one futile attempt at finding one once but every time we get around to going up near where the junkyards are, HE FORGETS HIS TOOLS!

5) Project work! So, it’s been 3 weeks since I gave him a project that pays REALLY well. Ummm, it still isn't done. Sure it's busy work and a bit time consuming, but really, if he wants to be able to do this and that, I NEED SOME HELP!

Well, that turned into more a rant than a blog post but those are the top 5 things on my Honey-Do list. If just those 5 things up there would get done, I would be one very VERY HAPPY CAMPER!
