Dollar Tree Deals...Day 30

If winter days in Arkansas were all like today, I could learn to like winter!

We had our normal MDO/school day today. This afternoon when we pulled into the driveway, we were greeted by a dhs worker...here for our yearly visit...not fiscal year...calendar year...because we just had this same visit last September. I tell you, I am r.e.a.d.y to be done with "home visits" and "home inspections" and all of that good stuff for awhile! The visit went well...except when the lady turned on the faucet in the kids' bathroom, it broke!!! Yes, broke! Like I couldn't turn it off! It was kinda crazy. Luckily I was able to take the handle apart and twist the piece underneath and it went off. Great timing :o) Ha! I was thinking about it today and we had had people in our house regularly for the last seven years! Yep, two international adoptions and foster care...that equals lots of visits.

Oh and we finally got to the bottom of why our adoption hearing has been delayed...lost fingerprints. Hubby will have to have his redone asap...oh joy!

After the visit, Little Pumpkin and I got a few things together for her Tet party we are doing in her preschool class later this week! She is so excited and so am I!

I mentioned last week that I have a new found love of The Dollar Tree :o) I never thought those words would come out of my mouth :o) I am sure my mom is proud of me :o)

Here are a few of my AWESOME $1 finds...

Did you know that The Dollar Tree sells bread? I had no idea! AND it's the good stuff! I love Nature's Own brand. They have several different options, I went with sandwich rounds. I got the hotdog buns for Little Pumpkin and Baby Boy...they {heart} hotdogs!

If you make you child's lunch or if your kid likes snacks, there are great choices at the DT!!

I forgot to take a picture of the peanuts I get there too. You can get a package of 6 individually packages of peanuts for only $1! Lance brand. I get the regular peanuts for me and the kids and hot & spicy for hubby! Such an easy, quick snack!

More deals! I got the fortune cookies for Little Pumpkin's Tet party!

So sorry for the delay on your adoption...I know you are ready! It does get tiring always having someone come into our home. Right now I would like to rearrange our kids bedrooms...but it would be out of code for them, and I don't want to mess anything up.

I just got back from dollar tree, and I stocked up bread products as well ;) I LOVE their tortillas from their...about $2 cheaper than anywhere else, and a lot less sodium. I also buy lasagna noodles from there...cheaper than the grocery store. I used to buy a lot of the snack things when my kids were in school.
