My hands the scent of oranges for about a week but man was it worth it. Throughout the summer we have snacked on them, added them to smoothies and snacked some more. They are perfect because they are bite size and instantly cooling and refreshing. They were cheap to begin with (I think it was about $1.00 for a bag of like 20) and they are like free (healthy) mini popsicles now.
I love being thrifty but sometimes I don't really seeing it paying off - this is definitely not one of those times! Besides my regular couponing, I haven't found any super thrifty finds lately... what are you doing to be thrifty right now?

The coupon expires Wednesday (and the coupon is only available today) so you have to move fast.
I bought this pretty vase - originally $50, on clearance for $12.78. Minus my $10 coupon, I paid $2.78ish and already have it up in my house. Shopping that doesn't cost any money is my FAVORITE!
What will you get?

God Grew Tired of Us is an amazing story and provided me with a much needed reminder on the need for sharing compassion, love, and understanding with fellow human beings. Please watch this film if you have not already. The documentary follows 4 of Sudan's Lost Boys as they come to America, experience electricity, grocery stores, flushing toilets and more for the first time - all while remaining dedicated to their families that were left in their homeland.
Here's the trailer:
And the synopsis taken from the documentary's website:
GOD GREW TIRED OF US explores the indomitable spirit of three “Lost Boys” from the Sudan who leave their homeland, triumph over seemingly insurmountable adversities and move to America, where they build active and fulfilling new lives but remain deeply committed to helping the friends and family they have left behind.
Orphaned by a tumultuous civil war and traveling barefoot across the sub-Saharan desert, John Bul Dau, Daniel Abol Pach and Panther Blor were among the 25,000 “Lost Boys” (ages 3 to 13) who fled villages, formed surrogate families and sought refuge from famine, disease, wild animals and attacks from rebel soldiers. Named by a journalist after Peter Pan’s posse of orphans who protected and provided for each other, the “Lost Boys” traveled together for five years and against all odds crossed into the UN’s refugee camp in Kakuma, Kenya. A journey’s end for some, it was only the beginning for John, Daniel and Panther, who along with 3800 other young survivors, were selected to re-settle in the United States.
