Today we drove past a garage sale, must I even say we stopped?? Of course we did! I found this wonderful solid wood cupboard for $5!!!! Since moving to this house I have not found my cupboards to be ideal for my baking center.(Everything I need to bake is all together.)

I got the idea for a baking center when I read Confessions of an Organized Homemaker. In the drawers are measuring cups, salt, baking soda, baking powder, paper muffin cups, and measuring spoons.

Order is so motivating! With everything in it's place and handy I might just make the kids some cookies!

Today at the grocery store a lady told me she heard on the radio that sugar prices will rise drastically. Right now at Superstore the little 2Kg bag is $1.49(limit 1)My kids and I each bought one!

Life Insurance Update

An update on the post I did about life insurance....
We received our approval today(we had to have a health exam before we were approved).
Hubby got preferred status and I got preferred plus!! Maybe because of my family background, I'm a woman and I recently released 19lbs???
Instead of the $593 he quoted us, the life insurance company lowered our rate to $508!!! We are now paying less than we paid for half the insurance!!!Now that's happy! Need a life insurance quote??Email me and I'll put you in touch with the guy we used.

Free Replacement Parts!

Last year we bought a kitchen faucet from Costco. It's one of those with the long head that you can pull out to spray around the sink. Well, last week it started doing some sporadic spraying! Hubby took it apart and found out it was a check valve! I found the original manual(I know this seems like a miracle in itself, but years ago I was told to file them alphabetically and I actually did!)
I called the 1-866 number today and they said they would send out the part right away!! No payment was ever discussed! The company is WR and the phone number is 1-866-789-2273(care).They are in Montreal. I didn't need my receipt or anything! Just what part was broken for what model #!!!!That's happy!
