Well, kinda!  It’s not a secret that we are finally getting our keys.  It is a secret that I’ll be getting my hubby {or – well…us} a new little something for the backyard. One of the memories I have as a child  are the family barbecues with the family.  The smell would carry for miles and miles.  You knew when folks drove by your house they wanted to knock on the door and pull up a seat because the whole neighborhood smelled of delicious BBQ almost on a weekly basis in the summer months.  AND, my grandfather had his own secret southern {deep south} recipe that he would always conjur up to make your mouth water.  He has since passed and the only other person that knows how to do it is my mom { I will be taking note this summer}.

Right now, we have a gas grill and it has seen better days.  It’s not in the worst of shape but growing up with a charcole grill instead of propane,   it’s just been something that I’ve wanted to have.  So what do you think?  Charcole or Propane/Gas?  I was seriously torn.  Here’s my plan of attack for this little surprise and welcome to your new home gift to the hubby:

Since I’m on online junky and missed the Sears Sunday local ad, I’m starting my research at Sears.com Online Catalog

<my fave this time of year> and since it’s summer, have you ever heard of #GrillingIsHappiness that they put out?

I’m going to clue you in on another little secret.  Have you signed up and used your Shop Your Way Rewards they offer?  If not, you are missing out!  I’ve gotten a nice little amount taken off my bill when I’m checking out in-store when shopping at Kmart or Sears.  The only flaw I find is that you have to ask them to check your balance when checking out because it won’t automatically discount your purchase.

Before I go into my finds, here’s a little leg work that you can use and will save you BIG before you head out the door…don’t say I didn’t tell you:

  • Shop Your Way Rewards members save more each and every season and for every $1 you spend you get 10 points (All Summer)
  • Lock in today’s low prices for all of your upcoming events with Sears Layaway! (All Summer)Garden Oasis Grandview 7-piece Dining Set only $399.99 (used to be $599.99)
  • Grilling Is Happiness Free In-store Assembly on ALL Gas Grills (All of May)
  • All Patio Furniture, Decor and Grills on Sale
  • Save $80 on Kenmore 4-burner gas grill with stainless lid (5/13)
  • Free Delivery ($69.99 value) on any patio set or grill over $499.99 (5/13)
  • 20% Off all cushions and folding lawn furniture (5/13)

Shweet right!  I plan on capitalizing on 4 of those sweet little deals.


The Plan – To locate and purchase a Grill for the new backyard online at Sears.com because I have no time these days to go looking.

The Budget – $250, that’s it..out the door no additional.

The plan to move in has changed so many times so I just want to get in and get out at this point because our close date has changed yet again.  Did you know in the state of Nevada even when you sign and close on your home you won’t get keys until you record.  This little piece of information would have been valuable to know.  Anyway, I ran to the store so I could pick up my goodies before we signed.

Here’s what I purchased online. However, after checking it out in the store..I wasn’t so sure we would use it all that much. So I checked out a few others and fell in love with what I originally wanted online.

The double daddy! The Charcoal and Propane/Gas combo. This I know we would use a ton. I can already see ribs on the Charcoal smoke side while the corn and veggies are on the Gas side. It was a bit more but to get something that we wouldn’t use, I couldn’t see it. This was a better investment.  After I finally settle on the right grill, change out the cover for the correct size grill…I just head to the customer pick up area. Seriously..I felt like the Jetsons when I checked out. All you have to do is scan your receipt and wait for a robot I mean person to bring out your goodies.

I didn’t get to take part in the free assembly like I mentioned up above because I wanted to get to the signing and I knew the kids would enjoy helping daddy put it together.  Headed to the signing…wish us luck!
