Frugal Friday: Fresh juice, winners, politics, and a short break


It’s Frugal Friday right over here. You won’t want to miss

my post on making fresh juice on a budget and the over a hundred other great contributions by penny-pinching zealots around the blogosphere!

Oh and I said I was going to announce some winners last night, didn’t I? Well, I’ve sort of been wrapped up in politics the last 24 hours (My hubby and I are self-described "political junkies" and this election go-around has certainly kept us on the edge of our seats!) so it slipped my mind to do the drawing. Sorry about that!

Without further ado, the five winners of Celebrate Simply are: Blaire (blaireruch@); Bethany (bethany.schenk@); Alison (alisongentry@); Holly (hrosener@); and czukowski (czukowski@). I’ve sent an email to each of you with further information. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Since this is Labor Day weekend and my husband is off from work for the long weekend, I’ll post the usual Super Savings Saturday and Saturday evening deal posts but will likely not be around much besides that so we can enjoy lots of quality family time. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

(Just had to share this picture of the girls taken last Saturday while we were out having a family day! Kaitlynn–in the stroller–just wasn’t quite so sure about the whole hat-wearing thing. It was hot and we were outside most of the day at an airshow and we had quite the time trying to keep it on her!)

    Thanks for the post on the homemade juice! I’ve been trying my hand at doing more things homemade this summer. Picking blueberries (what a fun time!) and freezing corn from the cob are two of my latest adventures. I’ll have to try out this juice idea next!

    Kaitlynn is so adorable in that picture and she looks just like you! :) Her whole face just looks like her mommy, which is precious.

    I hope that you decide to post some about the politics on your other blog. (’cause that’s the blog you’d probably post about it on :) I know that politics is important, but I’m not always up to date on everything. Then today someone told me about McCain chosing his vice president, and now I’m all worked up about the very thing, and my head is full of so many thoughts. I really appreciated Doug Phillip’s article on the subject. It seems to me that the idea of people is “well she’s PRO-LIFE so isn’t that great?” I’m sorry, but it just doesn’t set well with me. Well, sorry about posting this long comment on politics on your moneysaving blog, but I do look forward to your posts on such “controversial” issues, because I have always been encouraged and say “amen and amen” as I read. :)

    Take care and have a great weekend with your family!

    Your daughters are SO beautiful and I think Kaitlyn is looking like a mini you! Her eyes are so like yours. Very beautiful.

    You finally inspired me to do a Walgreen’s trip. My husband and I went on Saturday and I saved 25 dollars. He was really impressed. Then I got home and realized that we could have split our things in half and used two of the $10 off $40 coupons!!! Then I felt like a dummy : ) Oh well, I’m new to this.
