Do you love shopping at Target?

It’s a great place to shop for so many things! And even if you don’t want to deal with couponing and stock piling.. you can still get some great deals!


The easiest way to get a deal EVERY time you shop is with the Target RED Card.  (either Debit or Credit) The Redcard gives you 5% off everything you buy in store or online. AND if you are shopping online at you will get free shipping every time you pay with your card! Plus you get an extra 30 days for returns on your purchases!


And did you know you don’t have to go into the store to open up a gift registry? You can create and add items to a gift registry on your computer or tablet or phone.. whatever you want!?! Pretty exciting!

Kitchen appliances



Wow! If you haven’t shopped for appliances lately, you’ll be surprised by all there is out there!! I know I was like a kid in a candy store….

Can I just say that as a whole this project has been a bit overwhelming? I feel like I shouldn’t even say that, since I am so abundantly blessed to get to build a new kitchen.. but there are a ton of things to decide and learn. Do you know how many cook tops there are? Or how much power a range hood needs to have?? yeah me neither! hahaha But I’m trying!

I am having a lot of fun learning about the different things we can incorporate into the kitchen and how it’s done! Thanks Youtube and pinterest!

But, boy oh boy! once you’ve made one choice you have 5 other decisions to sift through based on it.. What color cabinets? Will that match with the floor?  What is the difference between a plinth and a toe kick anyway?? How many outlets do we need/want, what should they look like?  Thankfully we have great friends who are doing so much for us!


Anyways, it is super fun and I totally want to buy power tools now! My new past time is walking through Lowes and Home Depot and I don’t even mind it! 🙂

Anyways, back to appliances! We discovered Sears Outlet!! And found a fantastic deal on our wall oven and dishwasher. Sears Outlet sells items that are labeled “scratch and dent” so these are open box, floor display models, and such. But  both of our appliances came with no visible scratches or dents in them. the Sales man couldn’t even find one to record on our sales slip!! And yet we got them both for 45-55% off!

We also plan on going here for our fridge when the time comes (the fridge is one of the things we have decided to wait and save up for later)


check it out:


We have also found a few things on Amazon of course!

We sure do love Amazon!


  This cooktop is one of the most exciting things for the new kitchen! I finally get to have a gas cooktop! So it took me a little while to choose this one. It’s a GE Cafe

And look at this salt box I ordered:



We also just picked up a built-in Microwave at Ikea! * Ikea appliances are from whirlpool!   Ryan found it in the as is department for 45% off!! It had been used as a display model. Plus, because we were there purchasing our cupboards on one of the last day of their kitchen sale, we received a gift card with 15% of our purchase price back!! So, totally paid for the microwave and some of my list of fun accessories 🙂

Shopping for a new phone?


**This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small percentage if you make a purchase using these links. Thanks for shopping!



If you are in the market for an upgrade check out Gazelle. We have purchased our last few phones from here and have been very happy! These are all certified, pre-owned devices. They have way more than phones if you are looking into getting any new electronics!
iPhone 6
* be sure to check to see the phones status, whether locked with a carrier or unlocked before you purchase, to be sure it meets your needs!  *

On this note we have also been very happy with their customer service! We recently helped my Mom order a phone and made a mistake when we picked it. But, returning it and getting a refund was no problem at all. And she has already repurchased the one she needs, it should be here next week!

Gazelle also does trade ins for all kinds of electronics not just phones. If you don’t want to be bothered with selling these items on Ebay, Gazelle may be the place for you!!
