wfmw – automatic shower cleaner & coupon



[It’s driving me crazy that I didn’t spell Automatic correctly in my link, and Mr. Linky won’t let me change it for some reason. There!! I feel much better now :)]

The Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner really works for me! I received a link for a $7 coupon this morning for their new & improved model, so I thought I would pass it along. Just push the button every time you get out of the shower & after a 15 second delay it will spray the whole thing down.

It comes with a money-back guarantee if it doesn’t work for you.  Less time scrubbing the shower = more time to waste enjoy reading WFMW tips.

Sign up for Right @ Home emails & you will get lots of great coupons & offers.

p.s. I’m not affiliated in any way with this product, just passing along a handy helper idea….. although I’d be glad to pass along any new stuff the SC Johnson people would like to send my way!!!

wfmw – buying stuff on craigslist


For those of you who aren’t familiar with craigslist, it is an online classifieds site. You can buy stuff, sell stuff, look for a job, etc. I love, love, love it! The key to finding great items for a great price is to check it often. You can even add a particular category or search to your feed reader by clicking on the RSS button in the bottom right corner of the page.

Here are a few of the goodies we’ve bought:

  • LoveSac SuperSac for our gameroom for $65 (retail $719)
  • twin captain’s bed w/ bookcase headboard for $40
  • a stove for $20!! We just moved and our new house didn’t have a stove. The appliances are white, which I’m not fond of, and my refrigerator is black. I decided to get a white stove with a black oven door to tie everything together until we can replace them. I was thrilled to find an older stove in great shape – it just needed a $15 plug!
  • Broyhill Chair & 1/2 with storage ottoman in like-new condition for $300 (retail $1200)


Sometimes you will come across a real treasure without even looking for it. I recently bought a little animated singing Christmas tree for only $4. We had just thrown ours away because it was falling apart. Normally that would not be a big deal, but it belonged to our son Elijah who we lost several years ago to Leukemia. Everyone loved that little tree! I knew I had to find another and pictured spending big bucks on Ebay. It was a little gift from God the day I saw the ad on craigslist. So keep your eyes peeled – you never know what you might find!
