Coupon Inserts in the Newspaper

This sounds totally crazy, but this is how I feel every Sunday morning when the newspaper comes:Like a child on Christmas morning! I can hardly wait to see my coupons each Sunday! My husband always teases me that it is the one morning he sees me actually JUMP out of bed. I am totally not a morning person, but Sunday morning's I love ripping open that paper, finding the coupons and putting Sunday's date on them. I flip through them, look at the coupons, file them away and wait for them to go on sale. It is the best.

All you neeed to do is send us an e-mail with the area you live in and we can tell you the least expensive paper in your area.

MEGA Swag Bucks

A few weeks ago I shared with you about a new way to search the internet called Swagbucks. You get paid in "swag bucks" to search the internet the same way you already search for things. After you earn your swagbucks you can redeem them for gift cards and other prizes from the swag store. You can read my post about swagbucks here for all the details.

As if it was already sweet enough to get rewarded for doing something you are already doing, how about having a MEGA swag buck day!

"Every Friday, Swagbucks gives you a chance to win huge, gargantuan, oodles, tons of....Mega Swag Bucks with your searches. From 3 to 100 Swag Bucks, we give away up to 10,000 Swag Bucks in Mega Bills every Friday!"
Taken from Swag Bucks official blog

So, make sure on Friday's you do some MEGA searching to win MEGA swag bucks! This morning my first search earned me 5 swag bucks! Good Luck!

If you don't already have Swag Bucks go here to sign up. After you sign up check your e-mail and they will let you start searching!

Tombstone Pizza helps pay your bills! Click here to go to the site. You can get up to $15 credit on your utility bill. I love pizza, and getting money back for buying it sounds awesome! The part I really love about this deal is that it will be sticking around until 1/15/10! This means you can wait till it is on sale for a red hot price! If you still have some in the freezer from the last sale then make sure you save the info you need to send in! Now, are you wondering how you re going to keep track of the UPC you will need to send in? Tori posted about a great way to keep track of the UPCs that you would need for deals such as this in a post here.

Old Navy Weekly

Last night Old Navy Weekly reset and I managed to find a 25% off my entire purchase coupon.
Wondering what Old Navy Weekly is?
It is a part of Old Navy's website were you can "hunt" for weekly coupons.

  • To get to Old Navy weekly go to Old Navy's website and there is a link near the top in yellow and blue that says Old Navy's Weekly Deals. If you click on that it will take to you a page where it says start hunting click on it, or you can get there by going to
  • You need to click around and figure out where the coupons are hidden.
    At the top there is a coupon counter that tells you what coupons are still available.
  • Unfortunately, it is like a game, so you never know when the coupons will be reset, but when they are the coupons go like hot cakes. I mean literally no more than 10 min. Sometimes the coupons can be hard to find too! It really is a task to get them, but when you score a $75 off $100 coupon it is worth it!
  • They use to reset themselves on Thursdays and then they moved it to Sunday's, but as of right now I believe they are resetting Thursday evening again and occasional times through out the week.
  • You can read about some of my crazy all night experiences trying to find the coupons here.

I know we use to update this weekly and then we stopped. I think I had scored some of the "big" coupons so many times I felt like my families wardrobe was complete! The other day as it dropped to 60 degrees and I went to pull out the warmer clothes I realized it was time to start hunting for those coupons again! My kids need some new warm clothes and I need to start putting away some X-Mas gifts =)
It was the best feeling at summer time when I went in and bought a $100 worth of clothes, handed the checker my $75-$60 off $100 purchases and my bill came between $25 and $40. It is the easiest way to save money on clothes.

This week when you check out their website you can see where I found the coupons, but like I said the big ones where already gone by time I logged on:

  • $75 off $100 - There are 3 mugs pictured at the bottom - click on the blue mug and then the pink mug for the $75
  • $50 off $100- Move the "birthday issue" ad (bottom right) to the pink birthday bag (bottom middle)
  • $10 off $50 - Click the large cupcake (under "15 and fantastic) 15 times for the coupon to pop up
  • 25% off entire purchase - Click on the shirt of the boy wearing the red pullover (top middle) and the picture of the boy wearing the orange shirt (middle picture w/2 kids) - they will swap colors and the coupon will pop up.
  • 15% off when you buy the item of the week - Click the "15" on the birthday cake (middle picture with the girl in red vest)
  • 10% off entire purchase- Move the birthday hat (on girl far left in purple) to the guy in yellow and white striped shirt's head (top middle)
  • Thanks to Thriftynorthwestmom for the hiding spots!
Good Luck and my only advice it so check often. If you find the coupons reset make a comment! I will be sure to update if the coupons reset sometime later this week.

Coupons for DVDS

At Sony's Staycation website you can choose a retail store ( Best Buy or Target were in our area) and a $2 off a Staycation DVD or $3 off a staycation BluRay disc coupon will come up. Below the 2 coupons are a list of about a dozen different titles that the coupon is good on at each retail store. The coupon expires 10/31/09.

I looked online at a few of the prices on the DVDS at Target and here they are. I am not sure if the prices vary from online, but I imagine they are close. Especially when they say stores only.

  • Little Women : $7.50 (stores only)
  • Madeline: $5.00 (stores only)
  • Pink Panther: $7.50 wide screen (in stores only)
  • Annie: $9.00 (in stores only) special anniversary edition full screen and restored
  • My Best Friends Wedding: $7.50 (stores only)
  • Hitch $7.50 (stores only)
  • Matilda: $4.75 on sale in store this week only (WOW only $2.75 to buy after coupon)

If you used a $2 off coupon that would make a GREAT deal on a new DVD. While I was at Target I also noticed a lot of other titles were on sale for $4.75. They were up at the front near the registers. I haven't checked the above prices myself, but I figured that they are worth checking out if you go. When you get back let us know what you were able to find!
Be sure to check out the Best Buy titles as well.

Whats for Dinner and How to Organize your Recipes

What is for dinner tonight?

Apple Chicken
Recipe from Vocal Point
1 chicken (3 1/2 lb), quartered and skinned (reserve wings and giblets for another use)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2 med tart apples, cored and chopped
1/2 cup roughly chopped dried apple rings
1/4 cup apple juice
2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp honey
Preheat oven to 350ºF.Place chicken pieces in a 13" × 9" baking dish or casserole, and season with cinnamon, nutmeg, and pepper. Sprinkle fresh and dried apple pieces on top. In a cup, stir together apple juice, soy sauce, and honey, and pour evenly over chicken.Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Uncover, spoon sauce over chicken, and bake 15 minutes longer, or until a thermometer inserted in thickest part registers 170°F and juices run clear. Serve chicken with apples and pan juice.
Makes 4 servings
I am going to tweak the recipe a little and using chicken breast and throw it into my crock pot. Yummy!

Do you ever wonder how to keep all the recipes that you find organized? At least once a week I run into a new recipe that I print off and file away. I use the term file loosely =). Most times I end up printing it off and shoving it on top of the recipe shelf in my closet. You should see how unorganized I am. It seems like finding a recipe when I want to make it is impossible. Not to mention they fact that if I try to grab one, the whole stack falls down on me.

Here are a few solutions I have found in helping me keep my recipes organized:

  • Shutterfly's Photo books. Each year at Christmas time we give one to our parents with all the years events documented and photographed. Let me tell you, it is no easy task. The book usually ends up being 100 pages. One of these years I am going to get around to making one for myself. This year when I started working on them I noticed they have a recipe photo book. The idea is excellent. The only problem I saw with it is what would I do with all the NEW recipes I want to add to it. My hubby suggested making a new "volume" every year. Good idea! I also thought this would make a GREAT gift for families who enjoy sharing recipes. Have everyone submit a couple favorites in each category and you have a nice family gift.

  • Another great program I found was EZ recipes. It is an application that lets you search for, and save recipes. It Comes pre-loaded with dozens of recipes. You can also import your own favorite recipes. You can download the software for FREE right now. As you find new recipes you can type them into your account. You can add pictures to your recipes, nutritional info, where you found the recipe and notes to each one. After you put them into your account you can eventually search by ingredient, meal type, serving size, and recipe name. It is super easy to use and it will eliminate all the crazy piles I have of loose recipes. Now when I find one I will add it to my account and rate it. No more printing of recipes and wondering where I found it or where I left it =). * Note- When you download the FREE application, here, be sure to skip all "extra" offers they list. The first time hit agree, then hit decline at the bottom until you reach the last page.
I am excited to get organized. It must be an organizing kind of day. Do you have another way to organize your recipes. Share them! We would love to hear all the ways you keep organized!

Organize Random Coupons, Rebates, Rain Checks and More

Many of you have e-mailed me over the last couple weeks and have asked me what I think about using the binder method. I PROMISE I am getting close to sharing with you my opinions. I wanted to have used my binder enough times to tell you how I feel about it. In the meantime I still LOVE the file folder method, but lots of you wonder how on earth to keep track of rain checks, rebate form and receipts, box tops and more. Karrie at a FistfulofCoupons shows a BRILLIANT idea on how she keeps her stuff together =).

"Who knew a shoe organizer could be so much fun. I even have my incoming Bills put in the top pocket! I feel so organized now. Here are the item pockets I have currently in there.

1 Incoming Bills
2Mail In Rebate Forms found various places
3 Rainchecks I am not quite ready to use
4 Coke Points caps and codes
5 Hair Cut Cards & Coupons
6 Craft store & Joanns coupons plus Formula Checks
7 All the Pizza and restaurant coupons sent to me
8 Box Tops for Education
8 Cereal tokens and forms
9 Various UPCs I want to keep for who knows when? lol.
10 Albertsons free bread receipt surveys."

Thanks Karrie for sharing your idea!

This would make keeping all your "EXTRAS" organized. Adjust the pockets to meet your needs and organize away! Do you have a method that works great for you? Share it with us! We love to see how you keep all your stuff together!

Today is the release date for Snow White! The best places I have seen to buy the DVD is at Walmart for $19.96 or Toys R Us for $19.99.

This will bring the cost of the DVD down to......FREE by time all is said and done! How exciting is that. Who would have thought by using coupons you could get Snow White for FREE!

That is a steal of a deal! Don't wait for this one, because the promo won't last forever.

I also checked out some of the other coupons for other areas and was BLOWN away. We are planning an upcoming vacation to Hawaii (of course with all the money I saved on groceries wink) and bought a book of coupons for that area. I couldn't believe the high value coupons they were offering for the places we were already planning on visiting! We also spend a lot of time visiting my parents out of state and we bought a book for near them too!

This would make a GREAT gift for family members too. We are giving all our brothers and sisters one for Christmas! If you do buy multiple books be sure to buy them each separately so you can get your gift cards. As I was checking out they also asked me if I would like to auto renew my book for next year and I choose not to. Make sure to not accidentally check the box unless you plan on it.
I am getting giddy already and can't wait to get my book!
