White Stuff Coming and A Great Deal

If we get the weather that is predicted this next week, I sure won't be looking for things to do outside !  Snow predicted on Sunday. Last I heard it will start late afternoon with 3 to 6 ins. predicted. I know to many of you, that is no big deal. Around here it could be a disaster. First of all, many people in this area don't know how to drive on dry streets much less the white stuff. I feel sure the grocery stores are packed today with all the people getting that "loaf of bread and milk".
Looks like we are going to have a heat wave on Friday - 44 predicted !
Maybe I will get a few things done inside for a change. I said maybe
No - I have not decorated for Christmas again! Remember the bulbs in the candy container? I had originally planned on putting them in a different container, but did not have enough bulbs.

Well..... Saturday I had to make a trip to HL for some jewelry glue (had my 40% off coupon), so wandered over to see what was on clearance. Quiet a bit in the 60% off area, but I was good and kept on walking. Not much Christmas left, and what was left was 90% off. Guess what I found ?!? 4 more pkgs. of the bulbs 42 cts. + tax !! Just love deals like that ! :-D
I will be linking up with Linda @ Coastal Charm for "Nifty Thrifty Tuesday"
Leigh @ Tales of Bloggeritaville for "Thrifty Thursday
Linda @ A LA CARTE for "Junkin Finds Friday"

Friday evening I was playing catch up visiting some blogs and was admiring Cindy's Winter mantel decor and pictures of the snow where she lives, over at Applestone Cottage. I said admiring the pictures, did not say I wanted snow !! :D Anyway.......I was reading along and saw my name ! I started doing the "happy dance" - I won her "Blog-a-versary" giveaway $75 CSN gift certificate !!! I plan to do some shopping in the very near future ! :D Thanks again Cindy!

Have a great week !

ETA: l/13 - Most of the white stuff is gone, some patches still hanging around, but still very cold.
Stay warm out there!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I just got back from the grocery store and it was busy but not crazy. I will enjoy the snow as long as I can stay home and warm!

I love that you found some more bulbs and at 90% off....score. Thanks for joining JFF! And big congrats on winning the CSN gift card. Shopping is so much fun! hugs, Linda

Kathleen said...

Congrats to you! Have fun shopping!
90 off! You must buy at that price.
This white slippery stuff is cramping my style!
I know what you mean about some places not being able to handle the snow. Scary!

Pat Harris said...

Cold cold cold and we have to have snow on top of that. Be safe, stay inside.

Oh, Glenda, I sure hope we don't get that snow they are predicting. I have to be at work Monday morning at 5 AM and it takes me about 40 minutes to get there on a good day. Congrats on winning your giftcard. I also won something this weekend...a necklace. We did pretty good, didn't we. Sheila

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Enjoy the shopping Glenda!
It is true that it takes awhile to get used to driving in the snow.
But what scares me more than the snow is the ice! I really hate driving when it's icy.
Have a great week too!

Debbiedoos said...

Amazing I am seeing the weather across the board, COLD and SNOW...Stay warm. And I love your reds!

The Tattered Cottage said...

Hi Glenda -

So happy to see that you were able to get some more of the red bulbs and at a great price! Not looking forward to the snow that we are supposed to be getting this week either. I don't mind driving in the snow, I hate driving when it's icy. Have a great day.

Brenda Pruitt said...

Good for you! A little shopping on these cold gray days!

You lucky ducky you!! Congratulations on your win!
I know what you mean G. Around here there's always some yahoo who 's going 80 mph in the snow and ice. Great score on those bulbs. I keep hoping we'll get a HL in my neck of the woods...But alas not yet. We finally got a Neiman Marcus so at least we're sorta on the map *winks*
Well outside of that necessary grocery shopping, stay home and stay warm my friend. Vanna

Hi Glenda, I am with ya on the spring time stuff but not a thing I can do about the weather. Actually, we are seeing very little snow, and the sleet has been coming on down. That is usually what happens here, we just get ice. We expect the power to be out by morning. If so, I will see you good bloggers whenever. Stay warm.

I grabbed up some things at Hobby Lobby this weekend for 90% off too. Love that kind of a bargin:o)

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Ya gotta love a bargain! It snowed a lot south of us -- and it snowed a lot north of us -- but here in the mid-Atlantic, we got very little and it's all gone now.

Great find! Don't you just love HL sales?
Hope you didn't get snowed in. It shut us down for 3 days in SC.
