Target Finds: BoomCo Whiplast Blaster $3.59 (Reg $14.99), Capri Suns $1.25


I went to Target last night to pick up a $5 gift for our Youth Group gift exchange – and wow did I score a great deal on this BoomCo Blaster – only $3.59 after cartwheel! (Reg $14.95)

Boomco Whiplast Blaster $14.95
Price match with Target online for $7.19
Use 50% OFF Cartwheel (- $3.59)
(makes it $3.59!)

Remember that you can use a Cartwheel discount up to 4 times – so if you need a few cheap gifts this is a great idea :)

NOTE: Normally, if price matching a competitor – Target will deduct the Cartwheel FIRST and if the competitor is still cheaper, they will then bring the price down enough to match them.  In this case however, Target is matching their own online price so it’s a different story.

I also picked up 4 boxes of Capri Suns for some Christmas travelling we’ll be doing – use the 30% OFF Target Cartwheel to bring the price down to just $1.25 per box.

Or get the 100% Juice Capri Suns for a great deal as well:

Capri Sun 100% Juice $2.99  - Buy 3 Get 1 Free
- 30% OFF Cartwheel
= $1.56 each

25 Days of Christmas Fun: Christmas Morning Breakfast Casserole (Make-Ahead!)

We thought it would be fun to countdown to Christmas each night with a fun Christmas craft, recipe, family tradition and all things holly jolly.

Kasey’s Moms Breakfast Casserole

“Christmas” Sausage Strata  - My mom made this every year on Christmas morning for as long as I can remember.  Now, I do the same for my family.  Even though I don’t particularly like sausage, I love my mom’s Christmas Sausage Strata.  This week the kids and I are going to go ahead and prepare our Christmas Sausage Casserole for Christmas morning to put in the freezer.!  On Christmas Eve, I’ll take it out of the freezer and place in the fridge overnight to thaw out.  Then, on Christmas morning while we are opening gifts I’ll pop it in the oven.
