My #1 Fan

RIP

On January 2, my grandmother passed away suddenly. She was the "#1 fan" of this blog and I suspect probably my "only" reader (lol). She got such a "kick" out of all the stuff I would get for so little and free! When I didn't "post" anything she would email me to find out why. Every week she would tell me how much she enjoyed reading this blog. I just have not had it in me to post since her passing.

I wrote a post in December regarding our celebrating her 90th birthday (it was 12/10). We had a wonderful Christmas with her too!

She was an inspiration to the females in our family. She lived alone in her own home, cooked for herself, did housework, and even yard work. She played cards with her "lady friends" weekly and volunteered at the local museum and library in her town.She loved to embroider, crochet, and knit. Every year she made mittens and donated them to the schools for the children who had none.

She is very much missed!

Everyone got dental floss,and lotion for the girls and Axe body wash for the guys, in their stockings at Christmas. ( I did forget to hand out the Red Cross Travel kits though LOL. Oh well there's always Easter LOL)!

The Tide and Reach are 97¢ each and my coupons were for $1.00 off each so not only did I get these free I had an additional 18¢ extra off my total. The Whiska's were on sale for 50¢ each and I had BOGO free coupons which when they scanned they took off $1.00 each, so I actually got 6 cans for free (3 not shown cause I just realized this happened -woot-woot!!)
