Are you a Winer – do you like trying new Wines – if so, I want your Wine Winning recipes!
I am not a wine connoisseur nor do I don’t spend a lot for a bottle of wine. I am a sucker for a deal and love fun colorful bottles, and this is where I shop on FriYays after work.
You meet the nicest people at Pockets Discount Liquors
(BTW I don’t know this man but asked if he wanted to be in the pic – lol)
Smirnoff Ice has a new flavor Peach Bellini, although not a wine, it is one my summer favorite drinks
Last weekend I added Peach Bellini Ice to Talenti Alphonso Mango Sorbetto and topped it with Whipped Cream
It looked better than it tasted, which is why I need your help!
Go to my Facebook Page to post a pic of your Winning Wine recipe and it will be featured in the
4th of July Food & Fun Holiday Post.
Have a fantastical day – Smooches!
Hello Friends, I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday!
Recently, I read an article that had suggestions on the products that you should and should not buy at your local Dollar Stores. I agreed that buying party supplies and paper products was a good idea and with not buying toys which may contain high levels of lead. Purchasing cleaning supplies saves money, but I only buy name brands because some of the others are watered down which makes them a waste of money.
The only statement in the article that I did not agree with was that food items should never be purchased. Granted there are some items in a Dollar/99 Cents store that shouldn’t be purchased because of it’s obvious non-compliance with FDA’s regulations, however, there are a lot of products that I would and have bought at Dollar Tree stores.
The state of the economy has forced us all to be more frugal but my sons are trying to eat me out of house and home! They are always snacking and can easily polish off a large bag of chips in one sitting…wonder where they got that from (lol). Therefore, I am always on the hunt, usually with coupons in hand, in search of snacks that they will eat and be satisfied without breaking the bank.
That’s where Dollar Tree comes in, and it has always been my “go to” store for snacks, even when the boys were small, it was the place to stop before going to the movies. Not all products are sold in all stores and I was surprised with what I found in their freezer section, taking note that packaging was clearly marked Made in the USA, (The Bronx, NY, Altoona, PA, Pennsauken, NJ and Rancho Cucamonga, CA). There are many name brand products made specifically for non-grocery type stores as evidenced by their sizes, however, the quality remains the same and manufacturer’s coupons are accepted.

Do you shop at dollar stores, and if so, what do you buy?
Thank you Jennifer and Christine at store # 3730, Beaver Brook Plaza, New Castle, DE, for a pleasant shopping experience. The shelves were fully stocked and the store was very well maintained!
BTW – don’t forget to complete the customer survey on the back of the receipt to enter their sweepstakes!
~~ ALL OPINIONS ARE SOLELY MY OWN – I WAS NOT CONTACTED BY DOLLAR TREE NOR ANY PRODUCT MANUFACTURER FOR AN ENDORSEMENT ~~
If you’ve read the July issue of People Style Watch or any other fashion magazine you’ll see articles about ways to dress up T shirts and tanks with statement pieces. I discovered an Indian Boutique in New Castle that carries some really nice items with reasonable prices. I purchased two pairs of earrings and toe rings which were placed in a box as opposed to a plastic shopping bag which was a nice touch. The boutique also carries Indian designed dresses, scarves and shoes but the jewelry is the true deal, currently 40% off select items. The next time yor’re in need of a nice statement piece for a casual t shirt/tank or special event, check out the Indian Fashion Boutique.
The boutique is located at 335 S. DuPont Highway, Buena Vista Shoppes in New Castle, 302-276-1569 Indian_Fashion_Boutique@yahoo.com
