Over the weekend I was discouraged by my gas & electricity bill that’s up by 136% since last month! Even postal rates increased on the 27th. Rising prices derail my budget. That’s why I love the 99 Cents Only Store where I can count on stable prices on staples. Look at what a buck can buy:
1. Horizon Organic Heavy Cream, 1pt
2. Nature Made Flaxseed Oil, 125ct (Sep ’14*)
3. Nature Made Fish Oil, 200ct !! (Oct ’13*)
4. Jell-O No Bake Lemon Meringue Pie, 14oz
5. Temptations, 4pk chilled
6. Pralinutta Duo Strawberry Spread, 13oz
7. Wilton Candy Molds, 2ct
8. “March of the Penguins” hardcover (retail $30)
9. “Legacies” hardcover (retail $39.95)

Recently, Julia’s daughter Haley shared an easy recipe for Homemade Butter! Use the organic heavy cream & you’ll have organic butter, or whipped cream, or ice cream. The Wilton Candy Molds 2ct came in your choice of Flowers or Sports designs. With Valentine’s Day and Easter coming up, DIY candies and candy pops are an idea using these molds. Finally, check the Book Aisle for hardcovers to stock your Gift Closet (for unexpected guests at Christmas, perhaps). All ages would enjoy “March of the Penguins” from National Geographic. “Legacies” is about the collections at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. I had the opportunity to visit that museum, and my favorite was Dorothy’s ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz!
