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.

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...

5 Ways to Stretch Your Food Dollar

Posted By: Elena on April 7, 2010 in Coupons, Savings Opportunity, Savings Tips - Comments: No Comments »

Here are 5 great ways to stretch your food dollar by Rayven Perkins.  She has spent 9 years finding and implementing unique cost-cutting tips that allow her family to live comfortably as a one-income family.

The cost of food is going up, but you don’t have to spend more of your hard earned money on less food to feed your family. There are many grocery saving tips that all moms can utilize to stretch that grocery dollar as far as it can go.

Get a Game Plan
The most important grocery saving tip is all about planning. Before you go to the store, have a list written out with exactly what you need on it. Organize your list by store category, and do not shop when you are hungry!

If you can manage it, leave the kids with the husband or a friend and shop alone. Try to stick to the perimeter of the store for the best foods and prices, and when you do find a good deal, stock up!

Owning a freezer can be a good investment for times when you find deals too good to pass up. Buy as much as you can afford and store.

Use Coupons; Get Refunds
Don’t assume that there is so little money to be saved by using coupons that it is not worth your time. These days you aren’t saving a quarter on a tube of toothpaste by using a coupon, you’re getting 10 tubes of toothpaste for free.

There is a hidden art to successfully using coupons and refunds to your advantage. The main points to think about: use a coupon in conjunction with a sale. Often, this makes the item free, or pennies on the dollar. Buy as many items as you have coupons for.

Discount Food Providers
There are plenty of places to get food for frugal meals, you just sometimes have to think outside the box. In many communities across the country, a program called Angel Food Ministries is providing low cost boxes of food, designed to feed a family of four for a week, for around $30, no income qualifications needed.

And you can even get food – organic food- for free or at a heavy discount in many areas. Try volunteering at your local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) or organic food co-op. Often, an organizer or someone willing to help harvest vegetables will get a discounted or totally free box of food.

Recipe Stretching Techniques
Want some frugal meals? Here are some great cheap meal ideas. Stretch your grocery dollar by stretching your food purchases. Instead of buying chicken breasts, go for the whole bird. It’s usually less expensive than the breasts alone, and can provide you with 2-3 meals.

Try using half the amount of ground beef called for in a recipe, and fill in the space with other quality foods. For instance, if you are making tacos, use half the meat and add in a cup of cooked rice and a can of diced tomatoes. Now you have Taco Rice, a filling and delicious meal!

Add a couple extra cans of beans to chili and half the meat. Or try slicing up onions, green peppers, zucchini, and even carrots to add into spaghetti.

Making sandwiches? Try adding more lettuce and tomato and less turkey. It tastes better, costs less, and you are getting even more nutrients.

Grow Your Own Food
Probably the best cheap meal ideas come from one’s willingness to grow their own food. Stop playing farming games on the computer and put that time into actually growing something at your own home!

It doesn’t matter if you live in the suburbs, the country, or even an apartment, it is possible to grow some, if not a good chunk, of your own food if you are willing to invest the time into it. It also makes a great family project.

Utilizing bio intensive farming methods, or square foot gardening, most people are able to grow at least their salad needs from a 4×4 foot square garden bed. The more room you have, the more vegetables you can grow.

And for the truly adventurous, why not try raising backyard chickens, or meat rabbits? A half dozen hens will bring you a good supply of fresh eggs (no rooster needed) and one female rabbit can produce 600% of her body weight in edible meat per year.

Plus, they take up very little space. Rabbits can be raised on a balcony, and their droppings make excellent fertilizer for your garden.

Though not all these methods will work for every family, there are certainly more frugal meal ideas that you can be implementing to save money on groceries. Examine your spending habits, and see what grocery saving tips you can try.

Free Coupons & Samples!!

Posted By: Elena on March 20, 2010 in All Natural, Coupons, Organic, Samples - Comments: 1 Comment »

Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about a bunch of organic and natural companies that would send you FREE coupons if you requested them? Well I’ve continued to email them and I have being receiving some wonderful coupons!

Today, I received 4 coupons from Apple & Eve for their organic juices. Two were valued at $0.50 each and the other two were for $1.00 each. My daughter loves their juice boxes, so I’m thrilled to have some new coupons for those.

I also received a bunch of coupons from Amy’s. Amy’s has an entire line of natural and organic foods ranging from burritos to enchilada’s to lasagna and cakes. I actually haven’t had any of their foods before, so I look forward to trying them. They sent a coupon book which contained five $0.75 coupons and one $0.50 coupon. They also sent me one $0.55, one $0.75 and one $1.00 coupon. That’s a total of 9 coupons just for asking! They were extremely generous with their coupons.

Last week I also received a couple $0.55 coupons from Arrowhead Mills. I have not tried them before either but look forward to their breads.

Clif sent me a sample of their “Clif Kid Organic Twisted Fruit”- strawberry flavor which Emma ate up within seconds of receiving:)

Mrs. Meyers was generous with 5 samples. 4 dish washing liquid soaps and 1 baby shampoo.

And last but not least, I received two $0.75 coupons from Rudi’s Organic Bakery.

Special thanks to Amy’s, Apple & Eve, Arrowhead Mills, Clif, Mrs. Meyers and Rudi’s Organic Bakery for these wonderful coupons!

Earth Grains Bread

Posted By: Elena on March 12, 2010 in All Natural, Coupons - Comments: No Comments »

I recently purchased Earth Grains Whole Wheat Bread. We enjoyed it very much and LOVE that it’s 100% natural.

You can print out a coupon for $0.75 off a loaf from their site. If your store doubles coupons, as does mine, you will be able to save $1.50. This past week Harris Teeter had the loaf on sale for $2.50, so with this coupon, you’d only pay $1 for 100% natural bread!
