Sponsored Post: Winco and General Mills team up for exciting new CONTEST! #wincocerealdeals

Posted by:

Who doesn’t love WinCo? From early on I thought that WinCo stood for “Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado and Oregon,” the states where you could find this awesome store. But today I learn WinCo actually stands for Winning Company. Makes sense! In case you haven’t been to WinCo – I suggest you start. Shopping at WinCo reminds me how much every other store is taking advantage of me. WinCo’s prices are shockingly lower than all of their competitors. They truly offer the best prices a grocery store can offer, and you know when you’re shopping there you’re getting the best deal, the best value available. I’ve NEVER spent more money at WinCo than I have at another store.

Above is a picture of my local WinCo, in Beaverton, Oregon. I am here…. A LOT. I have two sons, ages 11 and 13 who eat NON-STOP! Cereal is a constant in my house. From babies, when we started with General Mills Honey Nut Cheerios™, to their now-favorite, Cinnamon Toast Crunch™. Awwww, it makes me miss having a baby. Remember when they were young, sitting in their highchairs, and giving them Honey Nut Cheerios™ to move around with their fingers? Watching their chubby little fingers try so hard to pick up the Cheerio™ and bring it to their mouth? Is there anything better? Now’adays it seems like the shovel *aka spoon* can’t be big enough when they eat cereal! They grow up so fast.

The picture below is my 13-year-old from this morning. After an hour of weight training he came home and ate a gigantic bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch™. I can’t imagine how much CT we’ve consumed in this household over the past decade. It’s a family favorite!

As if you weren’t saving enough money as it is – shopping at WinCo – Ibotta makes saving money even EASIER! Ibotta is a free mobile application that you can download on your smartphone or tablet. Once you have the App installed, follow the simple steps below to start earning.

Joan Rivers Mocks Lindsay Lohan’s Miscarriage

Joan Rivers Mocks Lindsay Lohan's Miscarriage

Joan Rivers hasn’t become famous for holding her tongue for her opinions on various things and apparently Lindsay Lohan’s reported miscarriage is no different!

When asked what she thought by the news, Joan said, “I hope she kept it.”

Melissa recoiled, but Joan continued, “Excuse me, what do you think I am? I was born with a coat hanger in my ear.”

She then proceeded to have a good chuckle when asked whether or not she felt Lindsay would’ve made a good mother. She said in response, “She would have been diapering the wrong end.”

What do you think of her comments? So, so wrong? Or spot on?

Kris Jenner’s Sister Puts Her On Blast!

Kris Jenner's Sister Puts Her On Blast!

It appears that there aren’t too many people fond with how Kris Jenner handles herself — family included. Her sister Karen Houghton has put her on blast, saying that Kris has changed since getting caught up in the world of show business.

In a new interview, Karen revealed, “I can’t get to her anymore. But I guess it’s the money. She’s a huge celebrity and now she has changed. I’m not saying good or bad, but I’ve seen what it can do to Kris….ever since she moved to L.A.”

She continued, “I think my sister needs inner peace. She’s not warm and fuzzy. She works so hard and is making money, but is it making her happy? I don’t know. I think she needs to laugh more. She’s very serious.”

Karen also believes that Kris has isolated herself from the rest of their family and she doesn’t like it when relatives tell her what they really think. She said, “She’s isolating herself from the family. I tried to reach out to her, but she’s very aloof. I tell her like it is and she doesn’t like it. If something makes me upset, I tell her. She doesn’t like it because of who she is. I love her, but I tell her how I feel.”

She added, “I get pissed off at her because she doesn’t respond to me. If you think your sister would call you back, she doesn’t. And it hurts me. I don’t care how much money you have or who you are, you’re my sister. I’m not afraid of her.”

Billy Bob Thornton Is Still In Touch With Angelina Jolie

Despite going their separate ways in 2003, Billy Bob Thornton has revealed that he and ex-wife Angelina Jolie are still in touch!

He said of Angelina, “She’s amazing, amazing. She’s got so much energy and so much goodness in her, and we check in on each other all the time. She makes sure I’m doing okay… I make sure she’s doing okay.”

They separated in 2002 and made it official in 2003. Prior to that, they were going to adopt Maddox together, but prior to their split, she adopted him as a single mother. He has previously voiced his dismay over parting ways with Angelina. He said, “I blew it because I didn’t think I was good enough for her. She has one way she wanted to live her life and I had another way to live mine and I was just too insecure.”
