Went to Wal-Mart.......................

I picked up this magazine and it is the premier issue.  I figured it was 5 or 6 dollars as it was just like the other magazines but "lo and behold" when I got home I discovered it was $9.95!  What is this world coming to?  Magazines cost more than books nowadays!  I haven't looked at it yet but all I can say is it better be good! LOL!
I also bought the second cookbook from Ree Drummond.  Her first one was fantastic!  In fact, I'm sure she's to blame for these extra pounds I'm carrying!  But I'm a glutton for punishment....the delicious kind!  I'll be posting on what I make from it.  

For those of you, Kerin, who asked where I found those Praeventia cookies last week, they were in the snacks and crackers aisle at Wal-Mart.  This week I went and there was only one box of the chocolate and that was it!  I am hoping that they are so popular that they were all sold out and not that they aren't carrying them anymore.  Many times the little companies get bought out by the big ones just to put them out of business so they won't compete with the big ones.  Below is an example but Nabisco kept making them.  They are called breakfast biscuits but I use them as a snack as they also are individually packaged with 4 to a package.  It helps me to be conscious of what and how much I am eating.  I've had these before and they are yummy!  They also come in several different flavors and one plain.

Look at these pretty notebooks I picked up!  They are bigger than the black ones I got for my crochet and knitting etc instructions PLUS.....these have a place on the spine I can actually slide my labels that I made in!  Taa Daa!!!!  I can use the smaller black ones for something else.  I have always have a use for notebooks.
So............that wraps up another shopping adventure with Sam!  Stay tuned to see what other treasures she unearths at sales, stores and on the World Wide Web! Oh my!  Have a great day everyone and PTL we got a "gully washer" of a rain here yesterday!  I hope you all get what you want/need in your area of the world!  Thank you so much for your comments as they are like presents in and of themselves.   


  1. Some of those magazines cost as much as a paperback book now. Crazy! Sometimes worth it, sometimes not. Hope that's a good one. I plan to get organized around here once my summer holiday begins. Work at school has been crazy busy. Two more days and I'm done. Woohoo! Hot as heck here which will be the weather forecast for the next 4 of 5 months. Have a great day. Tammy

  2. The magazines are very expensive these days. You have to read it careful.


  3. Holy moly!
    That's a lot of coinage for a magazine! Are the pages gold leaf~~LOL!!

    I hope it's a great one, and that you are able to save a lot of ideas out of it!!

    Thanks for letting me know where you found the snacks..I'll look to see if our Walmart has them the next time I go.

    We are warming up... finally, and I hope it sticks!!

    I was able to water the plants this morning without waiting for the hose to thaw.

    Have a great day!!

    Your friend..

  4. Love your pretty notebooks - I have many things in binders like that, my philosophy is that if it can't be organized in a notebook it's probably not worth keeping!

  5. Glad to see you found some binders you can slide your labels into!!! Magazine prices are definitely out of control!! I am a sucker for a beautiful magazine cover though!!! It really stinks when the inside isn't as pretty as the outside though.
    I am sure there are some great recipes in your future!!!

  6. I have the same binders. I love using them to store patterns and such in. I place printed ones in plastic page protectors too. And you are right about magazines. They are really going up in price. I think I paid $9.95 for one that was related to Pioneer living.

  7. Those magazines look very interesting....I so enjoy reading mags, can't have too many! I often see ones from other countires which I wish I could buy here. Have a great week, hope the rain stays away :)
