I've been Tagged

I have been tagged twice! These tags have come from Tips of a Mom of 3 and Thrifty in the Cincy. These happen to be 2 of my favorite blogging resources! Thanks ladies for including me!
Here's what I am supposed to do:
Post the rules of the game:

The Rules:
1. To link the tagger and provide the rules on your blog
2. Share 7 facts about yourself
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving names as well as links to their blogs
4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Seven things about me:
  1. I love reading cookbooks. I do not really read novels, I read cookbooks instead, from cover to cover!
  2. My favorite thing to do is also cooking! (See a pattern here?)
  3. I married a man I was friends with for about 5 years first! This really lets you get to know someone! He had nothing to prove!
  4. I have a degree in surgical asst. but as soon as I graduated, I never wanted to do that, so I didn't! Surgeons can be "demanding" sometimes. I know they have a difficult job! They do a great job! It just wasn't for me, but I finished!
  5. My favorite color is green!
  6. My ideal Christmas would be nestled in a cottage in a ski town with snow everywhere and my whole family there. In-laws, sisters, grandmas, grandpas, etc. I love fireplaces and being warm and this just sounds so cozy and warm!
  7. I am addicted to Hollywood gossip sites. Everyone has to have their "thing" right?

Now the seven I m tagging (This is tough, most of my favorite blogs have been tagged!) This is fun!
  1. Mom on a Mission
  2. Addicted to Coupons
  3. Bargain Briana
  4. A Recipe a Day
  5. My Italian Grandmother
  6. Stretching a Buck
  7. Mom's Toolbox
These are some of my favorite blogs, so be sure to check them out!


BeCentsAble has an awesome post about doing "charity on the cheap"! I never would have thought to plan this through out the year, but if you do, you could donate nice boxes for under 3.00. Check it out here and get into the season of "giving".
Again, please read this. It would enable anyone to give and so many children will receive nothing this holiday season! It could make a lot of kid's and parent's days!

Free Tacos!

Don't forget to go to your local Taco Bell and get your free taco today! From 2-6, everyone receives one free taco, no purchase necessary!

Yankee Candle Sale

All tarts and votives are $1!!!! Yes, $1!!!! This is 50% off normal price. I love these. I can have a different smell in my house depending on my mood. When you purchase the large ones, you are stuck with that one smell, but these are so versatile! They really do last for awhile too! So, get out there and get those votives and tarts...just think...stocking stuffers! I always see tart burners and such at dollar stores, so these really could be cute gifts, not just stocking stuffers!
I believe you need a coupon, you can print it from this site here.
I am not sure if there is a limit? I didn't see one, but I also did not look very well. You can order online too and there is a code on the same above link.

If you have the pleasure of having an Ulta Beauty store near you, consider yourself lucky! They often run great promotions, if you like to splurge once in awhile on salon products. I get a mailer about once a month, sometimes every 2 weeks, but there are always great deals! They also give so many "gifts" away for free!

Includes 29 eyeshadows, 12 lip colors, 6 cheek colors, 4 full size lipsticks, 2 mini lip-glosses, gosh, the list goes on and on! AND, it comes in a 3 tier leatherette case!

Chex Mix

I received my "Simple and Delicious" magazine today, (which I love, by the way!), and I was thumbing through it and they had recipes for Chex mix in there. Now, I have never been a fan of Chex mix, always thought it was sort of bland, but, this is not the Chex mix from the past. So, click here to see "modern day" Chex mixes. As I am sure most of you know, there have been numerous chances to get Chex for very little! These are going to be great and inexpensive at holiday parties! Have someone on your list you need to get a small gift for? This would be delicious in a mason jar, add ribbon, cute little card with the recipe and you are set! Have these at the home to hand out to holiday visitors! This would be convenient, easy and inexpensive!

This sort of brings me to my next subject. Holiday baking...... I have been getting many coupons for brown sugar, sugar, corn syrup, etc. I also have been getting some great deals on chocolate chips, etc. (Right now at Meijer, Nestle chips are on sale 2/$5. There is also a $1 off coupon...reat deal!) So, I have been purchasing a little here and there to help with the expense of my holiday cooking and baking! Start stocking up now!

Fire Safety

This is just a friendly reminder about a great safety tip that should be discussed in your family! While I took my child to the doctor for a routine check-up, she asked if we had a "fire-safety plan". I admitted that I did not, had never really thought about it. It is so easy and could save your life and your children's. All you need to do is sit with your spouse/significant other, and decide who would get which child and a place to meet up. Think about it, the house is on fire, time is of the essence and you have a child with you, but are at the front of the house and your sig. other is with your other child/children behind the house, you do not know they are there. You could make an irrational decision and decide to go in the home to look, etc. This alleviates confusion. Get a plan and review it, so if (and I hope it won't!) it happens, you know exactly what to do!
Now, hopefully, this will be what works for me (hopefully we will not be using our "plan" though!)

Double Savings..update

So, I went to Kroger and purchased the Febreeze Noticeables kit. I also purchased the candle. They scanned my Kroger card, which gave me $5 off the Noticeable and $2 off the candle. I handed him the paper coupons for $5 off the noticeable and $1 off the candle. It was beeping and he went to customer service and asked and they told him it was fine. He manually entered both. So, I know it is "legal". But, the only reason it beeped, I think, is because the $10 off the Febreeze Noticeable was giving an overage. I do not think it beeps if there is no overage....just a little tidbit! It did not beep when I made my purchase last night, and it was a simple overage!

Double Savings Yeah!

I did the double e-coupon and paper coupon at Kroger last night and it absolutely does work! SO, there are Febreeze noticeables on sale for 6.89. There is a $5 e-coupon and a $5 coupon from the paper, so it would be an overage! I am gonna post the deals from this and shortcuts also! I know off the top of my head there is a $1 off the e-coupon on P and G and $1 off from the paper on Crest. It is 2/$4 this week, so they would be free
Only bad thing (if there is one) is you only have 1 e-coupon! So, you can only work a deal once. But, it might be good because you wont arrive to empty shelves from people who had 10 coupons! =)

Giant Eagle Deals

Here are the Giant Eagle deals for the week of 10/9-10/15. Check it out here. Thanks to Marcy at Stretching a Buck! Check out her blog!!!

Double Savings

This is more of a question. The febreeze noticeables are on sale at Kroger for 8 something? There is a 5.00 off coupon on the P and G coupons you load onto your Kroger shopper card. There is also a 5.00 off coupon from the BrandSaver. My question is, will this really take both off? I so, this would definitely leave them free with some overage. There are a lot of other doubles worth mentioning:
  • Swiffer Endust...2.50 off total
  • Febreeze Candles... 3.00 off total
  • Pampers Wipes...1.50 off total
  • Pampers diapers...3.00 off total
  • Natural Instincts hair color...3.00 off total
  • Herbal Essences...4.00 off 2 total
  • Crest toothpaste....2.00 off total (it is on sale 2 for 4.00 (FREE!)
I was wondering if anyone has done this and if it works. I am going to use it later today, I will report if it works or not. I know they take both, but it kind of seems too good to be true.
Please let me know if you know this works and have done it!

Works for Me Wednesday

Here I go again! My "Works for me Wednesday" this week, again, has to do with unpleasant smells. I cannot stand unpleasant smells and work hard to eliminate them in my home. I posted a couple weeks ago about kitchen sponges and how to eliminate odors there!
Well, this one has to do with chicken. I cook chicken almost daily! When I prepare chicken to cook, I am very thorough on cleaning the chicken, cutting off any excess fat, etc. Well, I would throw the unused portion of chicken in my trash can. Leaving uncooked chicken in a trash can for even a short time could end up very unpleasant. Then, the trash would sit in the outdoor can for a time, depending on our trash pick up day, and that would be unpleasant outside! I also tried the disposal, but for some reason, it seemed as though I could never get it completely gone in the drain and smells would start to come from the sink. I quit doing that due to problems from it. So, I needed another solution.
Well, here it is...I have a plastic container with a lid in my freezer that I pull out when I am cleaning chicken. I put any excess that I remove from the chicken, place it in the container, put the lid back on and pop it back in the freezer! This eliminates all of these offensive odors. The chicken stays frozen until trash pick-up! When we put trash out, I simply empty the container in the trash, and it goes out and is gone in a very short time!
Check out all of the helpful hints over at Rocks in My Dryer!

Soups On!

Here is our project for the week. We are picking 3 soups with common ingredients and having a "soup making night" one night this week. We are going to make huge double batches and split them up and freeze them. This will save time and money because these three soups have similiar or the same ingredients, but are very different in taste. Soup is so easy to reheat and delicious too! We are going to make it a "girl's night" of sorts and possibly sip on a glass of wine while we cook!
Here's what we are thinking:
  1. Smoky-Spicy Sweet Potato Soup by Rachael Ray. We had this on Sunday night and could not get enough! Yummy!
  2. French Onion
  3. Some sort of a rotini, tomato, vegetarian soup
We will post pics and recipes when all is said and done!

Huge IKEA Sale! Free Breakfast!

IKEA is at it again! Another Huge sale and more free breakfast! This one is titled "Seize the Days" and there are some great deals here. AND......FREE Breakfast!
Here's the details:
  • Free Breakfast until 10:30 am Sat. Oct. 11- Mon. Oct 13.
  • Offer valid for one small breakfast AND one small coffee.
  • NOT available in Hicksville, Houston and Seattle or IKEA Direct.
What are the best deals?
  • 17 Piece container storage set 1.99..THATS RIGHT! 1.99! They are square too, which fit way better in refrigerators and pantry's. I am going just for this!
  • IKEA cookware set. 19.99! Normally 59.99! Includes 3 and 5 quart pots with lids, saucepan with lid and frying pan! This is a great deal!
  • Dining set for 199.00. Normally 399.00!
  • Flooring .49 square foot. Normally 1.19!
There are also kitchens and appliances on sale also. Click here to check it out!

Free Stuff

So, I went to a few stores and got a few things for free. Dixie napkins are on the 10/10 sale at Meijer. There was a .50 off coupon recently. This made them free! They are cute too! They come in a little box, almost a dispenser, you can set on your table! Thrifty in the Cincy talks about it here.

Johnson and Johnson band aids are on sale for .99 too. There was also a coupon recently for .50 off. When it doubles, they are free. Be careful though, some of the band aids are not marked on sale, but when I scanned them, they were on sale. All of the ones that were marked were sold out, so I tried one of the other ones and, to my surprise, it was on sale!


Purex has a new fabric softener, there has been a lot of coupons lately for it. I found it at Walmart for 2.99. There have been some $1 off coupons, so 1.99 for 52 loads! Worth a shot, I'll let you know how it is! Smells so good though!

There is a great deal at CVS. Buy $20 worth of Tylenol/Motrin products, get $10 in ECB's. I am definitely doing this. Seeing as cold season is upon us, there can never be too much Motrin and Tylenol in the house when you have young kids! There are so many coupons out there for these products also, so that would make the deal even sweeter!

Premieres are continuing!

On Thurs. Oct 9 at 8:30 there is a show airing on NBC called Kath and Kim. This is one of the ones I have been waiting for. It stars Molly Shannon and Selma Blair. These are two wonderful actresses, I love them! SO, I am so excited for this premiere. I really like 30 minute shows, they are easy to fit in!
There is also a premiere at 9:30 on NBC called SNL on Thursday Night. This sounds great. I love SNL, but, like I said before, I can't stay up to watch it! So, I think I will be tuning in to watch this also!

Experience Columbus..Oct 10th-13th

Experience Columbus is Oct.10-13, If you live in or near the Columbus area, this is a great time to get out and do some fun family things! There are tons of dining deals and attraction deals...50% off admission to the zoo, aquarium, Cosi (for adults), and the list goes on and on! Click here to check it out and print out the flyer for all the huge savings!
This is definitely a great time to take the kids to some attractions or get a sitter and have a "date" night with your hubby! I think there is something for everyone there!


Yummy! Culvers is having their famous "butter burgers" for $1 today! It is celebration of their 24 years in business. These burgers are worth full price, so I will be taking the kiddos there today for some awesome burgers! There is a limit of 5 though, but hey, 5 is alot! Enjoy!

The Mercy of God

Hello, All- Yesterday's service was very near and dear to my heart. The pastor talked about God's mercy and how He always shows up for us even though we are so undeserving. I have personally seen God show up in my life when I needed him most. Four years ago (almost to the date) my father passed away and talk about needing God...did I ever. God gave me strength to get through it and the peace and healing to finally come to a point where I was able to make it through an entire day without breaking down in tears. Don't get me wrong...I still have my days and moments when it overcomes me..and I loose control of those emotions!!

However, were it not for God showing up and embracing me...I would have never been able to put that first smile on my face after his passing.

It is the Holy Spirit that reminds me of the great times that we had together and how blessed I was to spend 21 years with him. That is more than some people get...and I will cherish every memory. God also reminds me that I have to get past the grief in order to enjoy the people that are still here in my life. He also blessed me with a husband who's comforting arms were right there around me every time it overcame me. Again, it is not my strength that got me through it is God's strength and His mercy!! The scripture listed below was discussed in the service..and talks about not only mercy, but also judgement. Please read..and let it sink into your heart.

Titus 3:4-7

4 But the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared. 5 He saved us. It wasn't because of the good things we had done. It was because of his mercy. He saved us by washing away our sins. We were born again. The Holy Spirit gave us new life.
6 God poured out the Spirit on us freely because of what Jesus Christ our Savior has done. 7 His grace made us right with God. So now we have received the hope of eternal life as God's children.

I Timothy 1:15-16

15 Here is a saying that you can trust. It should be accepted completely. Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.
And I am the worst sinner of all. 16 But for that very reason, God showed me mercy. And I am the worst of sinners. He showed me mercy so that Christ Jesus could show that he is very patient. I was an example for those who would come to believe in him. Then they would receive eternal life.

James 2:13

13 Those who have not shown mercy will not receive mercy when they are judged. To show mercy is better than to judge.

One of my favorite dinners!

This is one of my favorite dinners, to prepare and to eat! I think it may be the easiest one to make, it holds well, I can cook some before hand, etc. I love it!
These are your ingredients (above).
  • 1 package chicken
  • Iron Chef ginger orange sauce (found in the specialty section of the grocery store). This is so delicious and a "must" for this recipe. I can "jazz" it up or just use it out of the bottle!
  • Dried cranberries
  • Cashews
  • Mandarin oranges
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, diced (not pictured)
  • Here's some other things I put it occasionally: Fresh diced peppers, crushed red pepper flakes, pineapple, fresh ginger, hot sauce, soy sauce, orange marmelade.
You can mix and match as you like. I kind of change it up whenever I make it, depending on what is in the pantry. I love putting fresh peppers in, great way to get some veggies in there!

The steps are simple:
  • Saute garlic (ginger too, if you are using it) in olive oil for a few minutes
  • Add chicken (peppers would go in when chicken is almost done), saute until cooked through
  • Add sauce
  • If I am making this earlier in the day for that evening, I would only add those ingredients, then add the rest when I was reheating or about 10 minutes before serving. BUT, this is so easy, you can add whatever whenever. I do not think it can be "messed up"!
The result is a delicious, re-heatable, versatile dish! My young children eat this like crazy! They are getting chicken, veggies, nuts, fruit (cranberries), all in one meal! I serve it with rice, they eat it without, but it is so popular, I have begun making it with 2 packs of chicken so we can have leftovers too!

Giant Eagle

Here are the Giant Eagle deals for the week of 10/02-10/09. They are courtesy of Stretching a Buck. Be sure to stop by her awesome blog here! She puts the coupon links and everything on there for optimal savings! Be sure to click on the bar on the side of our blog to print some valuable coupons too!

Old Navy Sale

Old navy is having another big sale this weekend. It is coined the "1492" sale. They are having over 1,492 items on sale for 14.92 or less. It also said "get one two or three items for 14.92 also". I think this may be worth checking out!
I am not seeing it on the website, I saw it while I was watching my show last night! See, it pays to watch television! Oh and Lipstick Jungle is so good! I love it!

Caramel Apples!

So, I guess we are on the subject of last post, so I thought it would be good to put a post about our class "treat". We were able to bring a treat in, on behalf of my son. It was his turn. I am sure many schools do this, taking turns, letting children "share" something with the class. Well, I toiled over this decision. I don't know why, but I could not think of what to bring? No nuts, candy, cupcakes, etc.; there goes all my ideas! Then I figured it out! Caramel apples! Healthy, not too boring, cute, seasonal, and frugal!
Well, we made them (he got to help), and they were so easy! We bought caramels with sticks in the bag. All you do is melt caramel and a few tbsp. water on the stove, dip and put on buttered wax paper. Refrigerate and that's it! I wrapped them in more wax paper with bows (to make them pretty). All in all, I think this is gonna be a great, if you are out of ideas on something similiar...maybe this is an idea you might be able to use!


Ok, maybe I am getting a little "soft", my oldest child is sleeping in his own bed is causing me to reflect about him. He is kind of growing up. Now I know a lot of children never slept with mom and dad, so they have always had their own beds, but my son has always slept with us...this sleeping alone thing is a big step forward for him! Me also, I kind of miss the little guys knees in my back, in some crazy twisted way!
So, we were in our local grocery store the other day and we saw his preschool teacher, (wow, I love preschool...some quiet time!). Anyways, she said "hi" to him and he acted shy. She said "I know you are not shy!". This hit me so big.. she is the only person who has a special relationship with him that I do not have! She knows a side of him I will never see! Sure, they let you come to the class if you would like, but they also guarantee they will act differently! She sees a side of him I have never and will never see! It is so strange. I have been with him, I am thinking literally every waking and sleeping, for that matter, moment of his life! I understand everything he's done, why he's done it and can predict what he is going to do next in almost any situation. Sure, he's stayed at grandma and papa's, but I usually get a pretty detailed and honest report of all the funny things that took place, if he listened, etc. This doesn't happen to the same extent in preschool.
My reflection, I guess, is my baby boy is growing up! He is out there acting independently, doing who knows what, saying who knows what, (hopefully, not some things he's said at home!), acting, playing, etc. and he doesn't have me there correcting him! It is weird, but great at the same thought that keeps going through my mind is "I hope I did a good job!".
We prepare our children for this and the decisions he's making now are so small compared to the big picture, teen yrs., etc. but, he is making independent decisions! It is so bitter baby is growing up =( / my baby is growing up =) .....but I do know in my heart, he is making me proud!

Glorious Day!

I hope I am not jinxing anything here, but my 4 year old son has decided he is to big to sleep in mommy and daddy's bed! I know, why was he 4 sleeping there anyways...I've heard it a million times! We just could not put him in his room screaming until he fell asleep! We tried things over the years, but nothing stuck. The fact of the matter was, we were all sleeping and that was important overall to us! BUT........for some crazy reason that I love, he is on his third night of completely sleeping there, in his own bed, from falling asleep to waking, and I love him for it! Yahoo!
Feels good to stretch out at night!

New Coupons

Being the beginning of the month, the coupons at have reset. I looked there a few days ago and found nothing. I just looked today and whoa! Great coupons! Some of my favorite coupons?
  • Pillsbury ready made dough. You can usually get these for under $1 and they have a long shelf life! I love doing this with the kids as a project. They roll the dough balls, we put sprinkles, chocolate chips, shapes....I mean the world is the limit here! There are no rules when it comes to homemade cookies!
  • Pillsbury pizza crusts. At least one store always has these on sale every week. They cost next to nothing. Also, a long shelf life! These are awesome! I always have cheese and some sort of canned tomatoes or sauce, so again...kid project. the sky is the limit here too!
  • Bars of soap. I admit, I am not very "brand loyal". I tend to be sick of things pretty quickly, so I like to switch it up! With these coupons, I rarely pay more than $1 for bars of soap!
  • There is a coupon for Bonne Bell Lipsmackers. I have tons of nieces who love these things...Great Birthday or Christmas gifts! Plan ahead!
  • Frosting and cake mix coupons. Again, these end up costing me under $1. For this much, I can bake a delicious cake and again, give the kids something to do. I also love the oven in these chilly months!
  • Soup. Does it get any easier than soup for lunch? These canned soups have come a long way too! They have a delicious french onion in the new Campbell's line! It is enough for me to heat a can of soup, eat half, then eat the other half the next day! These also end up costing around $1 or less, depending!
So, those are some of the ones I love and why. Just click on the "see all coupons" on the coupon box in the side bar and check the ones you want. Hit print and you are ready to go!

KMart is Doubling Coupons $2 and Less!

There is a little rumor going around that Kmart is doubling coupons up to $2! This means if you have a coupon for $2 off of something, it would double to $4 off that product! I am sure there are many things to be gotten for free here! I have two separate posts on this with more info.
  • Click here to see what Coupon Cravings is saying!
  • Click here to see what Cincinnati Cents is saying!
I have not gone, there really isn't a Kmart in my area. I know alot of friends and family that does have Kmart. My advice is to call your local store first to see if this is, indeed, true? There seems to be a lot of speculation. Wow....worth a phone call though if it is indeed true!

Works for Me Wednesday

This is a post for Works For Me Wednesday over at Rocks in My Dryer. Today's theme is kitchen organization. I have to say, I probably lack in this department, so I will be reading everyone else's tips!
The best tip I use that I have to offer is this. I have quite a large pantry with a lot of shelves. My organization tip I use in my pantry is to put the stuff I want the kids, (I have a 2 and 4 year old), to eat low, so they can grab things themselves. I place granola bars, cereal, raisins, cereal bars, fruit snacks, etc. down low. They tell me they are hungry and they can go in and grab a snack. The things I moderate, I put up high; i.e. chips, snack cakes, and messy things I do not want them to get into. This frees up a lot of the "Mom, can you help me's?" throughout the day. I also like knowing they are making food choices themselves at such a young age!
