My Garden, Scotts Fertilizer Coupon, Home Depot Trip, One Great Reader and One Great Husband

I thought I would cover all these items in 1 post since they are all related.

My Great Husband & Coupons
My husband made a trip to Home Depot today to pick up Scotts Fertilizer for the lawn and 10 bags of mulch. I am so impressed with him because I sent him off with a $3.00 coupon for the Scotts (you need to register on the site to get the coupon) and a $10 off $50 Lowes coupon. We don’t have a Lowes close to us but Home Depot does take competitor coupons. His total was going to be just over $50 after the $3.00 coupon. The cashier told him he could not use both but he knew better. I guess listening to me talk about using coupons for so long paid off because he calmly asked her to check with a manager and sure enough…he was able to use both. That is quite a change for him because, number 1…he would not have even attempted the coupons in the first place and number 2…he would have just went along with what the cashier said. I was so impressed!!

A Great Reader & A Great Garden Center
I received an email today from a great reader, Michele. Knowing how much I like to garden, she sent me information on a garden center called Gasko’s Family Farm in Monroe Twp, NJ. When I went on their website I could not believe how reasonable their prices are. If I only lived closer. If you are lucky enough to live close to Monroe or maybe you just want to take a drive there you can check them out. It’s certainly worth it. Note: They only accept checks or cash (that’s my kind of store). Thanks Michele for the great information!!

My Garden
Lastly, my front garden is finally done. With all the chilly weather we had I was a bit backed up on it but as of this afternoon (and before the thunderstorm) it is complete. I hope you enjoy my pictures.

    Nice job Cindy…If you only knew how much I spent on mulch for my gardens you would cut off my access to your blog…!
