Some of you have been asking to see some more of the shoes I have scored at Goodwill. Here are a few. I think the most I paid was $4.00 for the first pair. They are Steve Madden, so are the last pair. Those were $3.00. I have my closet FULL of shoes. I will have to take a whole day to sit and take pictures. It took me forever to get these done. Man, it's hard to take pics of your own feet. lol. I love Goodwill. ;)

First, let me tell you a little about these bags. I have been looking for the perfect reusable grocery bags. I wanted a bag that-- 1) Holds lots of stuff... 2) Is super cute...3) Can fit into my purse and be easy to carry around...4) That my husband would not mind carrying around. lol. Now, number 4 was the hard part!
Then I got the opportunity to review this bag.
This is the Retro Graphic Bag 2. Snazzy, huh? lol. I can't tell you how many people have asked me where I got this bag or told me how cute it is! I always get compliments!
I have been carrying this bag around (and so has my husband....lol) for a few months now and I LOVE IT! It holds a ton of stuff. Seriously, I can't believe how much you can cram in there!
I think one of the best things is that it is so compact and easy to carry around! I don't have to worry about forgetting it. It fits perfectly into my purse (Or husband's pocket...lol)
Now I am going to order two more....
How are those bags!!!!!?
Now..here are some facts about Envirosax---

THIS MAKES A GREAT GIFT!!! (or just a yummy treat for yourself...lol!) I am making lots of caramel to give away for Christmas gifts! It's perfect for teachers, neighbors and family! Teachers and neighbors will get a can of caramel, and an apple wrapped up in a cute package. I am slowly gathering baskets so that I can make gift baskets up for family. They will get several cans of caramel with apples, popcorn and more stuff (I can't decide what else to put in the baskets. Feel free to give some advice. lol) I may make some brownies and rice crispy treats to add to the basket. Caramel will be wonderful on those!
Wanna Know how to make them? It's easy!
Get a can of sweet condensed milk. Take the label off, put into a pot and cover with water. Boil for 3 hours. Yes, 3 hours. I have done just one can as well as up to 5 cans and it works just fine. You can boil for 2 hours if you want the caramel to pour out. 3 hours will get you caramel good for dipping, and 4 hours will get you caramel that's darker and more like a spread. Make sure to keep the cans covered with water the WHOLE time. Otherwise the cans can explode. That would be messy! I set a timer for every 15 minutes..that way I don't forget to check the water level. lol.
After you've boiled the cans, you can just set them on a cooling rack and let them cool down. Careful, they are hot. DO NOT try to open them now. The caramel will run out and you will probably get burned.
If left unopened the cans can be stored in the pantry for months. Once you open the cans you must store in an airtight container in the fridge. The caramel will last up to 4 weeks in the fridge. When you open your can of caramel you can add a tsp of vanilla for taste. I like it better with vanilla.
On to the FREEBIES!!!!!!!!
Here are some labels to make those cans of caramel look pretty!
