Review/Giveaway: ChicoBag Limited Edition Halloween bag


The temperature is dropping fast, leaves are turning and falling, you know what that means - Halloween is coming!  I've been pretty organized this year and the kids costumes are already hanging in their closets.  Last year the kids plastic halloween buckets (used since their very first Trick or Treat event) were so laden with candy that we had to transfer them to another bag so they could continue on their way.  While we certainly do not need so much candy in our household it is cute to see their little faces when they dump the whole bucket out for all to see.

So this year I searched around for a Halloween tote that fit our needs.  I came across the perfect eco friendly reusable bag with a fabulous halloween design from ChicoBag.

The Halloween ChicoBag not only can hold a lot of candy but is totally resuable for my freebie grocery shopping throughout the year.  I hate taking those plastic grocery bags home, even though I reuse them for my trash I still feel pained knowing they'll sit on the landfill for a long time.  I try my best to bring my recycled bags to the grocery store but somehow they still sit on the passenger car seat while I shop.  The beauty of the Chicobag is the bag folds down into a convenient minute sized pouch with a handy dandy caribiner clip which I can clip straight onto my car keys - hence no forgetting!  Win win for the whole family and the environment : )

BUY
Buy the Halloween ChicoBag's online here or find a local store - starting price is $5. 
While the cute Pumpkin design Chicobag is sold out on the ChicoBag website I found one on Amazon.com for $5.49 + shipping here

GIVE BACK
10% of the sale of each bag will be contributed to Green Halloween®, a non-profit, grassroots community initiative to create healthier and more Earth-friendly holidays, starting with Halloween.

CHICOBAG CONTEST

Christmas Toy Review: Furry Frenzies

Photobucket

Look whats hot for the biggest holiday season of the year!  Hasbro the makers of the popular FURREAL FRIENDS brand introduces scampering and scurrying little friends to the playground.  From these pictures they look pretty similar to the infamous Zhu Zhu pets so we just had to try these out for ourselves.


My daughter squealed with delight when she received Flurry in a Hurry - the swift bunny for review.  The bunny came in a cute pet carrier box complete with little air holes.  They are slightly bigger in size and while they scurry, scatter, bump and change direction just like a Zhu Zhu pet they actually look and sound more like a pet. 

There are six different Furry Frenzies to choose from:
Flurry in a Hurry - swift bunny
Senorita Scamps - pretty kitty
Buster Bow Wow - goofy puppy
Dash McFlash - speedy hedgehog
Captain Crash - sneaky raccoon
Zippy McNutty - hyperactive chipmunk
While I did ask my daugher which pet she prefered she said she likes them all. She loved her bunny so much that she took JuJu (Flurry in a Hurry's new given name) to bed with her the first night. This soon stopped as my daughter woke me up mid way through the night by coming to our bedroom and handing me JuJu and saying "you keep JuJu now" needless to say JuJu stays in the playroom now....

BUY
You can buy the Furry Frenzies and all the accessories at Amazon.com starting at $8.88 (free ship with $25 or more spent)
FurReal Friends Furry Frenzies City Center Play Set

Go use your free Swagbucks amazon.com gift cards and pick these up for your little one. 
One less gift to pick up!

Review: Ideal® No-Calorie Sweetener

Photobucket
I'm on a Smile.ly mission. 


I received my Ideal® No Calorie Sweetener mission from Smile.ly last month and I'm here to report my findings tasting.   I typically use sweeteners in my iced tea beverage so I was excited to try the Smile.ly Ideal® No Calorie Sweetener in place of my usual sweetner. 

I enjoyed the natural taste of Ideal® in my iced tea and found it dissolved well.  I didn't feel like it was too sweet or artificial.  While I was writing this article I found out that my husband stole borrowed the box and took it to work to use for his morning coffee.  So I think thats a hit in our household.  I'm going to see if I can find a grocery store deal with this $1/1 printable coupon.  I'd like to try the Ideal baking sweetner in my baking recipes.

INFORMATION
In independent university taste tests, Ideal was preferred over sugar for sweetness, flavor, and overall liking! Ideal No Calorie Sweetner is more than 99% natural, and is:

  • made with xylitol, which is known for its health benefits
  • Measures cup-for-cup like sugar when baking
  • FDA approved!
Some of those health benefits include:
  • preventing tooth decay,
  • reducing ear infections,
  • reducing the buildup of plaque on teeth (all of which are important to moms!).
Ideal is also suitable for diabetics, pregnant women, and kids and a delicious way for anyone to cut sugar and calories from their diet.  Please note, Xylitol is not for pets!!!!

BUY
You can purchase from Amazon.com
Ideal No Calorie Sweetener 10.6 Ounce Baking Bag $5.89
Ideal No Calorie Sweetener 350 Count$12.89

Or find it in your local grocery store shelves.

My ACME Freebies - Still time to do the deal today



I haven't been couponing too much at the grocery stores lately because of work, vacations, blogging and just life in general.  Today, I fell back on the wagon and oh my its soooo good.

Acme has a Conagra catalina deal whereby if you buy $25 worth of select items you get back a $10 catalina coupon.  The beauty of Acme is the $25 worth of product is based on the shelf price not actual sale price you use.  So I went in my lunch break with my friend and here's what I got.  Note conagra catalina deal ends today so hurry go shop.

Transaction 1
2 pillsbury cake mix 88 cents (Shelf price $2.19)
2 Pillsbury brownie mix 88 cents (Shelf Price $1.99)
4 Chef Boyardee mini microwave cups 88 cents (Shelf price $1.39)
3 Wesson Veg Oil $2.49 (Shelf Price $4.49)
Total paid $14.51 (Shelf Price = 27.39)
Got back $10 Catalina coupon

Transaction 2
4 Chef Boyardee cans 88 cents (Shelf price $1.69)
2 pillsbury cake mix 88 cents (Shelf price $2.19)
1 Pillsbury brownie mix 88 cents (Shelf Price $1.99)
3 Hunts Pudding 88 cents (Shelf Price $1.69)
1 Wesson Veg Oil $2.49 (Shelf Price $4.49)
1 Angel Soft Bath Toilet Tissue 12 pack $5.99 (Shelf Price $9.99)
Used $10 Catalina Coupon
Total paid = $7.28 (Shelf Price $32.68)
Got back $10 Catalina coupon for my next purchase

If you want to do the deal double check your shelf price as each store is different.

So from the 2 transactions I paid $21.79 and have a $10 catalina coupon to spend or roll over.

I might go back and do this deal after work
2 Angel Soft Bath Toilet Tissue 12 pack $5.99 (Shelf Price $9.99)
3 pillsbury cake mix 88 cents (Shelf price $2.19)
Use $10 catalina coupon
Total to pay = $4.62 (Shelf Price $26.55)
Really cheap toilet paper & chef boyardee!

I'm keeping the Chefboyardee for a rainy day - I don't usually let the kids eat this but this will be my go to when I'm desperate ; ).  I bake a lot of cakes and brownies for all the school functions and money raising activities and who doesn't need toilet paper and vegetable oil.

For a moneymaker freebie try this deal
10 Healthy Choice Soup for $8.88 (mine didn't have any soup left) - get back a $10 catalina coupon

Or this deal if you need to make a lot of brownies or cakes
or 2 pillsbury cake and brownie mix and with $10 catalina you only pay 56 cents
