'U' is for Unbelievable Prices and What's Up Wednesday!

Hi everyone! I'm happy to be joining Mizz Jenny and the letter is 'U' today. Last weekend I stopped at Walmart and found some fun baking items in the reduced isle. I was understandably happy!
Everything pictured was marked 50¢
Ultimately I guess I should put my apron on and get ubber busy!
Think I'll do a little unbiased comparison and see how these icing pens work
compared to the Williams-Sonoma ones, should be fun:@)

I see some folks adding a random post every once in a while, I like it!

A few thoughts from my corner of the world:
-I'm fighting an invasion of raspberry bushes that grew from seeds the birds "dropped"... I'm afraid the battle is not going well for me. They are in a hedgerow and I don't have room for them, or their thorns, in my urban backyard. If they have to drop seeds why couldn't they be thornless??? Any words of wisdom?

-Trust me on this-Always, always, when home canning mark your canned goods with what's in them and the year. Don't think you will remember, all relish starts to look alike after a while, which was the jalapeƱo?

-Maybe Punky Phil was right and spring will be sooner this year. Temps have been in the 40-50's and that has really been nice, I hope things are greening up where you are too:@)

Until next time-Have a happy day!

  5. Spring is in the air. Nothing is green here yet. Everything is muddy from all the rain we got Sunday and Monday, but the snow is gone!

    Great bargains, Lynn. Way to go!

    It does feel a little like spring around here too. I just hope we're not surprised by another crazy snow storm.

  12. I just love clearance aisles. Or "Clarence" aisles as one of my children used to say. What a great deal. I will be watching for the finished project. You are always cooking up something good. Congrats on the win. Couldn't happen to a nicer Lynn. Hugs, Ginger

  15. Well gotta love those prices!
    I'm sorry bout the birdies being so annoying and dropping raspberry bush seeds about but that's a problem I wish I had! What's with my birds? They drop feathers and poop but never anything as delightful as raspberry bush seeds *winks* Oh and the canned goods thang cracked me up. It sounds just like something I'd do...Oh yeah I'll remember what they are...sure I will.....Ten minutes later...what was that again? *sighs* Vanna

  16. Woohooo! I like a great bargain. I have no words of wisdom about the raspberries, but I did giggle at your comment about thorns.

    And I giggled about the canned goods too. I do know that one from experience as well.

  17. My mother did a lot pf canning. She always dated and marked what it was. You bought a lot of things that probably should be used. So start the stove.

  28. I used to love my uncle's raspberry bushes. Funny that I don't remember the thorns. I guess my childhood memories are selective on the plus side!

    =)

  30. I love when you find unbelievable deals like that! It looks like you are going to have some mighty pretty baked goods!

    And the raspberry bushes made me laugh. I was never around the thornless ones. Working on a farm for many, many summers picking berries, I think they only grew the ones with the GIANT thorns!

    Thanks for a fun stop this week for our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "U".

    You are always uber-cool!

    A+
