Greatest Gifts For My Grad @Best Buy | #spon

Do you have one of these?

Appoquinimink HS Graduation

Then you need one of these!

May 22nd was a day that we will always remember,  but it is now just a memory and it’s time to move on and get him ready to move out!

Malik and his acceptance letter to Bowie

After 18 years the time has come to get him ready to be out and on his own, leaving the comfort of this town, his house, and yes, his bedroom.  We recently applied for a dorm room at Bowie State University and soon we’ll have a list of what he can and CANNOT bring with him on campus.

Our sons have never shared a room so this is going to be a big adjustment for him, but if we plan it right things will go smoothly. Thanks to Best Buy’s Greatest Grad Gift List not only can we find small appliances for his dorm room for under $100, but we can also find gifts that will help him in the classroom.

My son is a gamer yet he knows his education is priority #1, and studying comes first so after checking out the Best Buy Gift list he chose The Asus Transformer T100 Laptop.   This laptop would be the perfect grad gift for him because not only does it come with Windows 8.1 and Microsoft Home Office 2013, it’s 32GB internal storage will accommodate movies, music and lots of photos of his family!

Best Buy Greatest Grad

So if you are looking for the Greatest Gift for your Greatest Grad who will be leaving home, check the Best Buy’s Gift Center for items such as blenders, coffeemakers, iPhone and Tablet Cases starting as low at $50, so they can start feathering their new nest.

Merry Christmas Monday

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I trust you all had a wonderful weekend and I know most of you are still on holiday which probably made it even better.  Did you hit the stores and do a little more shopping or did you just stay home and relax?  

I went back to work on Thursday but took off on Friday and it was mah-va-lous, I put on a pair of leggings, a tunic and no makeup, it was great.

Christmas 2013 was very nice, a little quieter than in previous years but never the less it was nice being together as a family.  None of us got up before 10, and after opening our gifts we spent a lazy day watching “A Christmas Story“, eating and napping.

Christmas 1

This was my husband’s first try at stocking stuffing and I had to laugh because mine looked as though it threw up a scarf!  The Moscato was a gift from Pockets Discount Liquors and I will popping it open on New Year’s Eve.

Christmas 2

A stadium chair for those hard bleachers at Malik’s wrestling matches; Philadelphia Eagles car mats for Tayair and another jewelry box to help me organize the top of my dresser.

Christmas 3

Tayair received a US Polo Assn jacket and the Polaroid A8 Tablet that I purchased from Walgreens.

Christmas 4 Baltimore Raven’s pajama bottoms, a US Polo Assn jacket and heavy duty car mats for al-Malik.

Christmas 5

Socks (thrown a-la A Christmas Story), Old Spice and a Fireproof Safe

Christmas 6

A bathrobe and a Gillette Set

Christmas 7

 Earrings, animal printer slippers and a watch from my mini-men

Christmas 8

Warm tops and Hot Sauces

Christmas 9

Gift Cards and Stockings full of sweets and a toothbrush!

Christmas 10

Hubby would love for me to wear the scarf this way…but I say, “no way”!

Christmas 11

Some things never change!

  How was your Christmas?

Last Minute Shopping at The “W”

‘Twas 4 days before Christmas and all through the house not a gift was purchased…no not one…nothing even wrapped.  Was I in a panic…no, not me…no mall trip to navigate no whoa is me!  I jumped in the Sonata and drove down the street, parked and got out and entered the big “V”…oh I mean the “W” Walgreens.  

Long gone are the days of Santa and toys, I now have mini-men, they are no longer little boys.  Safety and Life Skills are things that they need, a job application and gas money will be under the tree!  ‘Tis the season for a few little gifts so they’ll have something to unwrap when they finally roll out of bed….after 12 noon if that!

Gifts from Walgreens

Pockets and Walgreens before Christmas 053

 A Polaroid Tablet for Son #1, he can take notes in class, read a book or just have fun.

Old Spice

Wrestling, lifting, or just watching TV…they definitely both needed one of these!

Pockets and Walgreens before Christmas 058

Son #2 is up texting all night so he needs help in getting up and a Bluetooth for no talking while driving (I know it didn’t rhyme this time).

Docking Station and Alarm Clock What to get hubby…oh boy…what does he need…nothing really, except maybe me!  Can’t go wrong with a gift card…one or maybe two and with Walgreen’s big selection that wasn’t too hard to do.

Pockets and Walgreens before Christmas 060

 

Food and drinks and a trip to Lowe’s will fit the bill, added a little Dove Body Wash and all is chill.

Last minute gifts are sure to be found and if you need any assistance just look around, or maybe someone will greet you as soon as you walk in the door.

 I am so glad to finally be done, no stress…no hassle…actually it was kinda fun!

Now it’s time to head home and wrap up these gifts and place them neatly under our beautifully decorated tree!

If you have any last minute gift buying to do head over to your local Walgreens as most stores are open until midnight.

Happy Holidays!

Daily Deal Superstore

Hello Friends, I hope your day is going well!

You know me, DeDivahDeals, always looking for a bargain, well I came across what I think is the best way to find and buy daily deals.  In the past, I have bought deals from Groupon and Living Social but the constant emails for deals that I wasn’t interested in was annoying.  Thankfully, this is not the case with www.dailydealsuperstore.com.

www.dailydealsuperstore.com has all the deals in one place – from the recognizable, big names to the really local deal companies, and everything in between.  I have created my own profile so I only get the deals from Wilmington, and the surrounding areas and Philadelphia, PA and I don’t have to read through a bunch of others.   I can change my profile any time, so when I plan a trip I can add my destination and pick out a few cool deals before I leave.

www.dailydealsuperstore.com gives me a lot of categories to choose from so it’s really easy to either see the deals I want and hide the ones that I’m not interested in. Beauty deals not your thing? No problem, deselect the box and those deals won’t show up in your personalized list.

www.dailydealsuperstore.com has a great Facebook app too, so I can share deals with my Facebook friends – and earn rewards!   We all could earn points from every deal and redeem them for gift cards.  Saving money on deals AND earning rewards – winning!

Anywho, click on the banner below to register and start getting some great deals today – try it, I think you’ll like it!

Hubby's Birthday

Today 5  7 is my husband’s 57th birthday!

Birthday_banner

What did I get him?

NOTHING

Why?

Because for the past 25 years nothing that I’ve ever given him was good enough!

I am a CHEAP frugal shopper so he’s never used a single item that I’ve given him including gift certificates/cards.

Actually seven years ago I started giving him single dollar bills, and no not for what you’re thinking!  I would give him a dollar for each year starting with a pack of 50.  Most times he’d spend it on the boys, but this year he’s not even getting that because we just spent a bunch of money to replace the engine in Tayair’s old car to give to Malik.  Of course we had to assign the car to him and because he had an accident last month it’s costing us an additional $350 month, therefore, no one gets any birthday money this or next year!

Happy Birthday Hubby!

bday cake

alright…heading out to get ingredients for his birthday dinner….and maybe a Walgreen’s Gift Card…this year he just might use it!)

Have a fantabulous evening – Smooches!
