Making the Most of the Last Day of March

EDIT - as of today, only the new cans of Edge and Skintimate are producing RR's. So don't buy the orange can ones like I have in the pic. Go for the black one - Edge Energy or whatever its called.
Acme - I was down to my last box of pasta. These are so cute!

Okay, I'm dying to know where you're storing all this stuff. I'm up to my elbows in stockpile stuff and have started investigating the nooks and cranney's of my house for possible storage!

I'd also love to know where all your energy for multiple shopping trips a day comes from... do you think you can bottle some it and send it my way?

Love the Piccolini! Hoping for a great deal here soon!

shoe-weee girly! That made me tired just reading all that you did today.

I did make it to target and got 15 cases of pepsi for FREE! Here's how I did it: 15 cases $45 minus $20 worth of superbowl promotion coupons= $25 minus the $15 back in gift cards leaving $10 balance. I will send in my receipts for two $5 Budweiser rebates! Yeahhhh, love FREE pop! Thanks for the heads up on the Target sale.

Jamie,
Trust me, sometimes its a struggle. I donate a lot of stuff and lately I've been selling stuff online too. And some goes to my boyfriend, family and friends. The rest either goes into my garage or stuffed into cabinets and closets.

Didn't I tell you? I'm a maniac (Flashdance music blasting in the background)! :)

Precious,
Its so adorable! I'm just not sure how its going to be in a ziti. I might need to use a spoon rather than a fork to eat it.

Lisa,
Yay! Great job!

frugalsuz,

It's great for cold pasta salad and I use them in homemade soup too!
