One of the best Dollar Tree Finds….And It’s a MUST HAVE. 

Hey there friends!

This has been such a crazy month for me–and I am loving it! We have been keeping ourselves busy spending time with family and friends, spent the last weekend at a 3 day bible convention (so refreshing) alll the summer fun outside, party planning, our bible ministry, etc. All exciting stuff .  😬

One of the main events taking up my time this past month? Jack and Jules . Not familiar? It is our local children’s consignment that comes around twice a year…..and I LOVE it. It’s time consuming but SO WORTH IT. It’s a great way to sell your children’s gently used clothes/and to grab some great deals for your littles. (Let me know if you want a blog post on my hanging/pricing process!)

At any rate, I wanted to share one of my tried and true time savers–and this will work for anyone–especially those of us who hate to iron.

I am not going to lie, when my kids outgrow their clothes, I throw them in the bottom of the closet (sometimes they make it in the  ” I’ve outgrown It box”, sometimes they don’t.) Nonetheless, they are wrinkled. To the max. Every one of them.

That being said, I think I have found the holy grail of wrinkle reducers, and it’s cheap as dirt. Literally, maybe cheaper than dirt. ( NO joke–try potting all the plants around your house. Its pricey.)

Once again, Dollar Tree has come to the rescue. This wrinkle reducer y’all–all the praise hand emojis..Here. Let me throw one in here just for fun. 🙌🏻.. It’s bomb. Do the kids say that anymore? Someone fill me in.

Notice what it looks like here…..

Now promptly leave your house, and go grab a bottle.

It smells so fresh and clean–and it’s so simple to use! Evidently it is the off brand of Downy, which I didn’t realize existed. But I’m telling you, it can’t be much better than this.

Just spray it on your wrinkled item, and give it a pull. Pull the clothing on each side, and then top and bottom. It’s awesome! Notice the difference in this shirt.



Ok please don’t fault me as I forgot to spray the bottom of the shirt, ( I was so excited to share with ya people, per the usual) but isn’t the difference AMAZING????? SO MUCH EASIER than ironing.

I also am a huge fan of the “throw it back in the dryer with a wet towel” trick, but sometimes there just isn’t time, ya know? Add in the nice scent boost with it, and you have a solid champ in this wrinkle releaser.

The price point can’t be beat for the time it saves you!

Do you use a spray on wrinkle releaser like this? What is your take on it?? Let me know in the comments!!!!!


The greatest store for Deal shoppers….

I love me a deal. And I am a HUGE bargain shopper! Fun fact, when my husband and I were dating ,we were talking on the phone one night and he mentioned buying his dirt bike at a yard sale. I said, “You go to yard sales too?” This was the day I realized he was meant for me. No joke. I mean, on top of all the amazing things about him, now we could be thrifty together! 

Today, I wanted to share one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE stores with you….Drum roll please……its Gabe’s! 

Do you have a Gabe’s close to you? If not, you may want to google the closest one! I am not kidding ya’ll, it’s amazing. A friend introduced it to me and I have been hooked ever since! I stopped in today and wanted to share some of the deals I saw with my awesome blog followers-were in a club now! So you get in on all my good secrets from here on out! 

I tried to snap a few pictures as we were walking through the store, but two hungry munchkins were begging me to leave and I missed so much! But fear not, I will still fill you in on some of the goodies. 

If you aren’t familiar, Gabe’s  is something like a big TJ Maxx/Marhsalls-but with better prices! They carry AWESOME brands at a fraction of the price and it’s totally worth making a trip to the closest one. They carry clothes,jewelry,  handbags, shoes, sleepwear, pet needs, toiletries, rugs, and countless other items! 

Most of the clothes I see are usually marked under $12.99, and purses are priced amazing! Prime Example: Vera Bradley. Check out these purses. 

DO you see that? Every purse is Under $40.00-but the original price ranges for $98.00-$148.00! This wristlet was marked down to $9.00!!!! Awesome deal!  They carry Betsey Johnson and Anne Klein to name a couple others. 
Another great item for the men in our lives-Golf Shirts! They carry some awesome Callaway golf shirts for under $20.00. That’s a huge price break from the $50.00-$70.00 shirts I usually see!  

They also had some really  cute Adidas, Nike, and Under Armour shirts for guys, Great for gifts!

They also carry Sperry’s for about $29.00 and sometimes clearance is cheaper than that! If you haven’t ever bought a pair of Sperry’s (boat shoes are my fav) then go out and buy them now!  I have a few pairs and they last FOREVER. They are so comfy and Sperry’s stand behind their products! Go get some ASAP! I rate the company A++. 

Gabe’s also carries those uber cute Nike outfits for little boys for a fraction of what you would pay at a normal department store…Not to mention all the adorable Disney items! GO, go, go! Grab some now! 

Now let’s talk clearance. Gabe’s, you and your beautiful clearance sales, make my life. I’m talking $1.00 clearance on some great items. I bought my Peachy girl a $1.00 dog bone today! (That’s the pup BTW) 

Also, Check out this hair color touch up I saw-

Amazing, right?

Next, $1.00 shoes! Come on, now. Shoes for $1.00?? Unreal! Now these were slightly beat up, but usually, the clearance isn’t damaged in the least bit! And clearance items are for the most part, $1.00, $3.00, $5.00 and $7.00. 

I can’t tell you the amount of items I have bought for $1.00-candles, makeup, soaps, toys, everything! 

So now you know some of my favorite buys at Gabe’s! They do markdowns every Monday, so its best to visit Monday afternoon if possible.
