Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Saturday, October 31, 2009 | | 1 comments
I made these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies yesterday and they tasted so good I had to share them with you!

2 packages Spice Cake Mix
1 Large Can Packed Pumpkin
1 bag chocolate chips
Mix all together and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

It makes a TON of cookies and my family ate almost all of them in just a couple hours! I bought both my chocolate chips and cake mixes on sale at Smith's this week!

Mega Swag Bucks

Search & Win

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!
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!
Check out the SwagBuck store and share with us what you are saving up for!

Thanks SheShopsSmart reader Stephanie for the SMART find =)
With this deal being as sweet as it is there is a TON of people taking advantage! The lines are VERY VERY long. Just thought we would give you a little heads up so if youre planning on going you can plan accordingly.

Old Navy Weekly

Just a friendly reminder that Old Navy Weekly is expected to reset sometime between tonight and tomorrow. Be on the lookout! I just received a text reminding me that they are resetting and when I went to check out the web page the current coupons are no longer available! Check back often and comment if you find they go live!
Have no idea what Old Navy Weekly is, be sure to read about it here.

Thinking Outside the "JUG"

Last week as I shopped at Utah's newest grocery store, Winco, I found that they had many great deals in their big bulk bins. You just scoop your items out, put them in the plastic bag and weigh them. I ended up with long white rice for only .50 cents a pound. I couldn't help but wonder if I bought items in bulk how I would be able to store the beans, rice, spices and sugar. I have been saving my empty milk jugs cleaning them out and using them to hold my purchases. I love that it didn't even cost me a cent! Last night when I made rice it poured out so easily too! Just make sure you clean out your jug super good and that it dries before you put in anything. Here is an article I found that shares 35 ways to use empty milk jugs! Food Storage Made Easy shares an incredible way to stuff a 72-hour kit into a milk jug! Seriously, check it out! I can't wait to try this! What are some of the ways you have used your empty cartons and jars that you have laying around? One thing I like to do is save all the empty boxes and I let my kids play grocery store with them. I put the prices on them with a sticky label , so I can incorporate some mathematics into their play time. Maybe you use your cereal boxes as magazine holders. Maybe you store water in your milk jugs. Think outside the box or "jug" and share your ideas with us!

Mega Event at Smith's

Last night I ran into Smith's to check out the new sale. I had way too much fun! I ended up with:
4 packets Bumble Bee Tuna
2 Duncan Hines Frosting's
9 boxes of Kleenex
8 cans Carnation evaporated milk
2 cans of Del Monte Tomatoes
3 bags Nestle Baking Chips

I have to say I even surprised myself this week. Before my I scanned in my Fresh Value card my total was at $315.67!!!!!! I actually slightly panicked. By time all was said and done my total came to $108.19. I saved $126.76 in coupons alone! I went home to tell my husband jumping up and down. His first comment was that our 4 newspaper for $14 a month had paid for themselves for the almost the entire year in that trip alone.
After I admired my purchases my wheels started turning. I had bought enough deodorant for my husband for the entire year. I had many items to add to my 72 hours kits (hot coco, tuna, and medicine), and I feel totally prepared for the "sick season" with medicine, Kleenex, juice and comfort food.
After I put everything I away I stood back and admired my incredible pantry. It looks immaculate. I feel prepared for just about anything and I cut my budget in half while doing it. It has totally been worth it!
Also, while I was shopping I did manage to find some deals that weren't on the list. In my next post I will list what I found....lots of FREE stuff!

Children's Place 15% off Coupon

This last weekend I headed over to Children's Place to use my 15% off coupon. While I was there they had tons of racks with clothes for $4.99, $2.99 and .99. I was able to pick up some shorts and shirts for next years summer clothes for less than $1.00 an item. They also had some fall church clothes on sale for right now for less than $5.00 a piece. I also spotted some clearance back packs and lunch boxes for $4.99. I bought a couple to use as my little ones 72 hour kit packs. I liked that they were small enough for them to be able to carry, but not to small I couldn't put what I wanted in them. I used my 15% off coupon and my purchase came to a little under $35. I love shopping trips like that! What have you been able to score using your coupon. Be sure that if you haven't printed yours off to do so quickly before it is gone!

Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure

Yesterday I shared with you a $10 off coupon for Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure combo pack here. The best place I have seen to buy it was at Toy's R Us for $21.99 minus your $10 coupon. If you spend $40 or more on Disney's Fairies you will get a FREE Fairies Lantern valued at $12.99. If you don't have a Toy's R Us nearby take the ad from Sunday's paper to Walmart or Target and price match it. If you do have a Toy's R Us nearby it might be worth going because their Halloween candy was marked down to 40% off.
Another thing....
It has been reported by PYP that the Snow White $10 off combo pack coupon reset. I know my sister in law totally spaced using the coupon so here is a second chance Kristen and any others who forgot! To see how I scored Snow White for FREE check out this post!
