Freebie Friday!


Please forgive me if there are double postings or other such mishaps! This girl is INTO EVERYTHING and I had to keep stopping and coming back!!!!!!

*****Today is Mega Swagbucks Day! Go here to sign up!******

~Go here and sign up and Ruby Tuesday's will send a BOGO coupon to your email address.

~There’s a $1/1 Lance crackers printable coupon here. Family Dollar sells the 8-packs for $1 making them free after this coupon. I’d guess that you’d also be able to get a pretty good deal on them elsewhere with this coupon, too
~ChristianBook.com is currently running a Spring Fever Sale with prices up to 99% off the retail price! They have a lot of items for under $1–some even as low as $0.25! Just click on the “Under $1″ button to see all the items which are priced at a steal.
There are also some free shipping codes listed here. I can’t guarantee you that they’ll work, but it’s worth a try.

~If you have a MySpace account (does anyone still even check that site anymore??), you can request a free sample of Crest toothpaste and Scope Outlast mouthwash here.


~I’m not sure what to think of Gourmet Wraps for dogs treats, but if you’re interested, you can go sign up for a free sample pack. The sample pack includes five different flavors!


~Sign up for another free Home Made Simple coupon booklet with over $30 in savings for household cleaning products. My favorite coupon in these are the dish soap coupons. I save them to pair with Double Dollar coupons at one of our local stores and get free or almost-free dish soap!


~If you are a teacher or homeschooler, you can sign up for a free LEGO kit here. Create something with the kit and then submit it for the contest and you might win!






~Sign up at the Skintimate site to possibly receive free samples and more. I have no idea if they’ll actually send something, but I have received some pretty nice razor freebies from other companies before so it’s worth a shot.


~Sign up for a free Gardener’s Idea book here. I have no idea how big this book is or what it contains, but if you like gardening, it’s worth signing up for to check out.


~Fill out the form here to choose the names of Stevi B’s new friendly bee characters and you’ll receive a coupon in your inbox for a free pizza buffet. Plus, you can vote on the names chosen next week and get another free buffet coupon.

~Right now, you can get subscriptions to Family Fun, Taste of Home, or Weight Watchers for less than $4! Here’s how:


~Go here and look for the $4.69 magazine subscription offers box. It rotates through different magazines, including those mentioned above.
::Click on the $4.69 magazine subscription of your choice and add it to your cart.

~General Mills just launched a brand-new project called, My Get-Togethers. If you’re a member of their Psssst! program (you can join here for free, if you’re not), you can apply to host free General Mills get-togethers.
While the website doesn’t state that many details, I’m guessing the get-togethers would be similar to what House Party offers.


~If your children are fascinated with how things work and how things are made like mine are, you’ll definitely want to order this free “How It’s Made” DVD from Bruder Trucks. The DVD shows the German engineering in progress, Bruder Trucks in action and more.

~This offer has been around for a long time, but it’s still available so I wanted to mention it again. Sign up for a new account with the CVS Photo Center and you’ll get a coupon code emailed to you for 50 free prints. If you have a CVS store nearby, you can have the prints shipped to your store and you won’t pay anything!


~I’m hearing reports that the $3/1 Huggies coupons have reset on both Coupons.com and Facebook. I’m not sure if this is the case for everyone, but if you or someone you know could use these coupons, it’s definitely worth checking out. Let us know if they are reset for you.


~There’s a brand-new coupon available on Coupons.com for $2/1 Kiss Nail Products. KMart as well as other places sell the Nail Art for $2.29 making it close-to-free after the coupon.

~If you sign up for the Home Depot newsletter you can score some great coupons for their garden center.
They recently put out coupons such as BOGO Free bulbs and $5.00 off lawn fertilizer. These coupons are email specific so you will need your own. I just registered and I am really hoping to see some $10/50 coupons this year as well since we have quite a few projects scheduled this summer!
Head on over HERE and on the left, the Garden Club. Make sure to check that off and subscribe.

~Next week CVS will have Listerine 500ml mouthwash on sale for $1.99. You might want to grab the coupon from coupons.com for $1 off Listerine 500ml. I can never get mouthwash for free so $1 or less is a great price in my book!

~Have you joined the Buddig Lunch Club? I did and was just rewarded with a free lunch bag and great printable coupons ($1 off 1 package of lunch meat). If you are a fan of Buddig lunch meat, then I recommend joining. They may not be offering the free lunch bag to new members - but I think they'll continue to offer more freebies and coupons in the future. But you've got to be a member to get the special emails offering "member-only freebies".

You can upload your photo and then add your name, and optionally your address, email address, and phone number to the back.

Way Way Back When-esday!



This one goes waaaaayyyy back. This is probably circa 1973!! Left to Right: Jackie, Jeff, Jimmy, Janell (me). I still remember that outfit I was wearing...I loved it. Lovely, isn't it???

Monday, March 22, 2010

So close......

...yet so far away. Spring is what I am talking about. It seems like winter has lasted FOR-EVER this year. How I long for warm, sunshiny days (I promise not to complain about how hot I am). We did get a taste of spring this weekend...it was 75 degrees and beautiful (or as my friend Katy says...glorious). We took the kids to the park to enjoy the warm weather. They loved it. Oh, and today it was 39 degrees and snowing! Welcome to the south!

Freebie Friday!


*******I JUST TRIED TO USE THE K-MART COUPON AND THEY TOLD ME IT IS NOT LEGIT AND K-MART WILL NOT ACCEPT IT. DANG! I HAD VISIONS OF STACKS AND STACKS OF CHEAP DIAPERS. OH WELL!***************

~There’s an unheard-of $10/$20 KMart coupon available on the KMart website. It’s a PDF and it appears it can be legtimately printed as many times as you’d like.
What is really crazy is that it is good through May 15, 2010! You should be able to combine this with manufacturer’s coupons at the KMart Double Coupon Event coming up in April.
In addition, if you have a local store which accepts competitor’s coupons, you could score some great deals with this coupon.
Hurry! This is a hot freebie and I’m guessing it won’t last long!



~To celebrate the first day of Spring, on March 20, 2010, all Rita’s Ice locations are giving away a free regular-size Italian Ice to each and every guest who stops by. Read more details here.
As always, I recommend calling your store ahead of time to verify that they are participating!


~There’s a new $3/2 Suave Deodorant coupon available here (scroll down to find the Suave deodorant in order to print). Suave deodorant often goes on sale for around $1 at our Kroger store making it free after this coupon. I’m guessing a number of other stores also have it on sale for less than $1.50 on occasion.

~If you are looking for targeted traffic for your blog or business, sign up for $75 worth of free Google Adwords Credit here. Just make sure to cancel your account when your $75 is used up and you won’t be charged a dime.


~Go pick out your free Kotex Sample Pack here.

Enter the codes from the 4 lids here and you’ll get the Leap Frog Tag Junior Book, ABC Animal Orchestra, for free.

~Get a free customized sample of Pantene hair products when you become a fan of Pantene on Facebook.

~Through March 21, 2010, you can get a free Panini at any Corner Bakery location. Just become a fan on Facebook here and then you’ll be able to print your coupon.

~Print a coupon for $0.50/1 Lifesavers Strings and Rings here. If your store doubles coupons, these should be free. These are reportedly $0.64 at Walmart and I’m guessing they are a similar price elsewhere. So even if your store doesn’t double coupons, you should be able to get these for less than $0.20 each.


~I’ve never heard of instant spray shampoo in my life but you can get a free sample of Psst! Instant Spray Shampoo from Redbook right now. (Maybe I’ve been hiding out in a cave, though, and everyone else uses it?!)

~For those of you who are Redbook readers, you can also get a free deluxe sample of Hush Time-Out Treatment for frizzy hair.


~There’s a brand-new $0.50/1 Land O’ Lakes Butter coupon here and here. Print and use it at Meijer and Publix to get free butter. If you don’t have a Meijer or Publix, you’ll likely still be able to score a great deal when pairing this with a sale–especially if your store doubles coupons!

~Print a coupon for a free coffee or cappuccino at any Holiday StationStore location. No purchase is necessary. This coupon is good through March 28, 2010.


~Print a coupon for free Irish Cheese with any purchase at Earth Fare. This coupon is good through March 23, 2010.

Scotties are often on sale for $1 or thereabouts making them free or almost-free after this coupon!


~Want to re-create some of your favorite restaurant meals at home? Download the free ebook, Restaurant Copycat Recipes, Volume III, and you’ll be able to do just that! This 52-page ebook contains 33 top secret restaurant recipes.
If you missed the other two Restaurant Copycat ebooks I posted about previously, you can download Volume 1 here and Volume II here.

~Take the BetterOats Oatmeal Taste Test and you’ll receive a coupon good for a free box of BetterOats Oatmeal.


~I was excited to discover this high-value printable coupon last night for Roman Meal Bread. Print a coupon for $1/1 Roman Meal Bread here.
Paired with a sale, you should be able to score bread very inexpensively–possibly even as low as $0.50 or less!



~Here’s a wonderful opportunity for those of you who have a Kroger store and like to put your budgeted grocery money on a gift card.

Way Back When-esday!

This is Drew in 2005. I have always done a leprechaun hunt for him on St. Patrick's Day! This year, I figured I would get out of doing it because he IS 9 now. No such luck. He informed me this morning on his way out that he couldn't wait to find the leprechaun clues. Ahhhh...a mother's work is never done! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

I Found My Pot of Gold!

Jackie and I were driving yesterday to pick up our checks from the consignment sale and it had just finished raining and the sun popped right out. I told the kids to be on the lookout because this was perfect conditions for a rainbow. Within seconds, we turned the corner and saw a HUGE double rainbow. By the time I pulled over and found my camera....the double part was gone but I still managed to capture this. It was beautiful! Oh, and the pot of gold part, you ask??? I made $575 at the consignment sale!!!!! YIPPEE!!
