Kraft Shredded Cheese for $0.88 a Bag
I've told you before and I'll tell you again- I LOVE cheese! I don't think I go a day without eating some type of cheese. And usually I have 6-8 different types in my fridge at a time. Cheese is pretty pricey so anytime I can get a good deal on it, I stock up. This week there's a great deal going on at Lowe's Food stores. So here's the steal: All bags of shredded Kraft Cheese are on sal...

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle
So my little "Harriet Potter" has been having a BLAST with the PS3 Lego Harry Potter game and as if that wasn't enough, my In-Laws got her the coolest Lego set around. It's the Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle! This isn't the ordinary "Lego" set that I grew up with. This Lego set has hinges and doors, flames on torches, stairs that swivel, and much, much more. It's AMAZING! My In-Laws had as...
Happy 5th Birthday, Emma!!!
My baby is turning 5 today. She is SOOO excited about this age, and the fact that the dentist told her 2 days ago that her two bottom teeth were loose. I keep telling her she's going to look like a jack-o-lantern but she doesn't seem to mind:) I received the Picaboo book in the mail yesterday and it's all wrapped up and ready for Emma to open up. It came out REALLY nice. Can't believe I...
Free Picaboo Photobook!
I just found out from My Baton Rouge Mommy that Picaboo is offering new customers a FREE large Classic book from October 15 to 25th by using code FALLBK. I'm a little behind on my photobooks these days, so I spent the day today working on Emma's birthday party from last year. I've always loved scrapbooking but can't seem to find the time lately. Making a photobook is similar to scrapbook...

Vita Mix Blender – The Kitchen Appliance No Home Should Be Without
I've got to be honest with you. I hate infomercials. I also don't care much for sales Kiosks where fast-talking snake oil salesmen wearing headset microphones attempt to mesmerize you with their clever words and trivial knowledge. In fact, the Vita Mix blender Kiosk at our local Costco had been up and running for several months before we finally approached it during one of our latest visits. Prior...

Eating Organic Foods

Posted By: Elena on January 31, 2010 in Organic - Comments: 1 Comment »

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has put together a wonderful guide to help consumers make informed choices to lower their dietary pesticide load.

“EWG research has found that people who eat the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables consume an average of 10 pesticides a day. Those who eat the 15 least contaminated conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables ingest fewer than 2 pesticides daily.”

I know that buying organic foods is expensive, but we also need to think about our health and that of our family. Try starting with the “Dirty Dozen” list from above, this way you decrease your exposure to pesticides.

Our First Snow of the Year

Posted By: Elena on January 30, 2010 in Emma - Comments: No Comments »

It finally snowed, and my daughter couldn’t be happier!

Last night she woke up at midnight, pulled back her curtains, opened her blinds and stared at the snow that was accumulating on the ground. She asked me to take her outside to play and I told her we would go out in the morning. She then began to cry. I threatened her convinced her to go back to bed:)

This morning after breakfast we went outside to play in the snow and had a wonderful time. Here are some pictures.

Simplifying Your Life

Posted By: Elena on in Simplify - Comments: No Comments »

I am always trying to simplify my life….but I’m not too good at it just yet. I follow many blogs and one that gives great advice in this area is Zen Family Habits.

Today, Sherri wrote an article titled “43 Simple Ways to Simplify Your Life” which I thought was wonderful. I think it’s a great starting point for me or for anyone trying to live a more “simple life”.

Check it out and let me know what you think. Any tips on simplifying your life? I’d love to hear from you.

Lowes Food’s InstaSave E-Offers Program

Posted By: Elena on in InstaSave, Lowes Foods - Comments: No Comments »

I do most of my grocery shopping at Lowes Foods and Harris Teeter. When Lowes Foods switched over to the Fresh Rewards Program, they also added an electronic coupons program called InstaSave.

I LOVE this new program because you choose the coupons you want from a list provided on their site and download them to your Fresh Rewards card, making it easy to save money without clipping any coupons.

Here is a list of the current e-coupons on my card:

Item Limit Save
2 7 Up or Diet 7 Up 2-liters Limit 1 0.50
Litehouse Bleu Cheese Crumbles – 4oz Limit 99 1.00
Litehouse Caramel Dip -Original, Low Fat Limit 99 1.00
Litehouse Strawberry Glaze Limit 99 1.00
No Yolks Pasta Extra Broad /Dumplings-12oz Limit 5 0.75
Full Circle Organic Pizza Limit 1 1.00
Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk Limit 4 1.00

If I purchase any of the above items while at Lowes, the amount of money listed in the “Save” column, will be deducted from my grocery bill just like a coupon would be. The only difference is the savings line on my receipt will read “InstaSave” and then the amount.

Once you have added all the e-coupons that you want, you can either print out the list to bring with you to the store, or you can have them email it to you. I usually have it emailed to me because this way, I always have the list with me on my mobile phone.

The e-coupons selected usually last about 1 month. At the beginning of each month, a new list of coupons is added to the InstaSave database and the old ones are deleted.

If you are not signed up for this program, you are missing out on extra savings. To sign up today click here.

If you have any questions about this program, or need help signing up for it, let me know.

4 Bottles of Soft Scrub for $5: Walgreens Super Deal

Posted By: Elena on in Soft Scrub, Walgreens - Comments: No Comments »

Today I stopped by Walgreens to buy some Soft Scrub as they had it on sale 2 for $5 for the 24 oz. bottles.

I subscribed to Soft Scrub’s newsletter this week and they allowed me to print a “Buy One Get One” Free (B1G1) coupon. I use Soft Scrub a lot so I tried to see if I could print a second one and it let me….sweet! So I knew going into Walgreens that I would be able to get 4 bottles for $5.

The deal got even sweeter when I saw they had some bottles that said “50% more for 24 oz price” making these bottles 36 oz. I wasn’t sure if these were part of the sale as the flyer specifically said “24 oz. or 25.4 oz. bottles”. I picked them up and brought them to the cashier for a price check. They rang up $2.50!

Original price of Soft Scrub 24 oz bottle: $4.19
“50 % more Free” Soft Scrub 36 oz bottle: $4.19
Sale price 2 for $5
Both bottles listed above qualify for the 2 for $5 sale

Your Action Plan:
Purchase 4 bottles of the 36 oz size soft scrub for $10
Use 2 B1G1 Free coupons -$5
Get all 4 bottles for $5

B1G1 Free coupons are GREAT and looking at the unit size is also very important in scoring big deals. If you had purchased these 4 bottles at their regular price of $4.19, you would’ve spent $16.76. With the above deal, you are saving $11.76!

There’s still time to do this deal, so sign up for the Soft Scrub Newsletter, print out your coupons and go get some cheap Soft Scrub at Walgreens today!

Note: This deal expires on January 23, 2010
