How to shop Walgreens...

I've been wanting to make a post on how to shop at Walgreens for a while now. So I thought I would do that tonight. I went to money saving mom to read over her Walgreens 101 post and I know I could not do it any better.

So instead of wasting my time writing everything out, I will just direct you here. If you are just beginning and want to know how to shop at Walgreens check it out!

Let me know if you have any questions...I will be glad to take a stab at them!

Frugal Dessert Recipe

I know I posted this a while ago, but I just made it again and it's soooo delicious! I thought I would share it on this recipe swap!

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake (Betty Crocker Recipe)

Need a quick dessert for tonight? This recipe is AWESOME and all the ingredients are just simple staple items you probably have on hand. Did I mention that this dessert is delicious??
It's one of my husbands family favorites!
Okay heres how to do it...
1 cup flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 T. cocoa
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 T. veg oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 3/4 cup very hot water
Heat oven to 350
Mix flour, white sugar, 2 T. cocoa, baking powder, and salt in bowl.
Mix in milk, oil, and vanilla with fork until smooth.
Spread evenly in 8x11 or 9x9x2 pan. (I use a glass 9x13 and just bake a little less time)
Sprinkle with brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa.
Pour very hot water over batter. This seems a little weird but works wonderfully!
bake aprox. 40 min
Dish out and top with cool whip or icecream! YUM
For more recipes go here!

Luke chapter 15
verses 4-5
"Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home.
verse 7
I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
