Coupon Preview 3/13

We get our paper delivered and for some reason we get the inserts on Saturday which is awesome!

Today I received the RedPlum and Smartsource insert - I don't normally get a chance to flick through until after the kids are in bed.  Today I had my Houseparty and Nutella Party so have not even looked at them tonight so head to and Sunday Coupon Preview to find out exactly what coupons will be in this weekend's insert, plus they have sneak previews of whats in the future weekend's insert and the past, plus of course deal matchups.

Don’t forget to check out the incredible service that provides. You can purchase whole coupon inserts for $.50 or less each plus shipping - No need to trek to the store every Sunday!! (p.s. Split the shipping with friends to save even more!)
My friend Amanda wanted to let you know about where you can sign up to get your Sunday paper delivered for as low as $1 each week!  This is an awesome saving considering the newspaper retails for $1.75+ and plus you don't need to drag yourself out to go get it.

How does 4 boxes of GM cereal for 84 cents each plus get a free gallon of milk sound?

Family Dollar's Family Gourmet: Try It, Like It, Guaranteed

This post brought to you by Family Dollar. All opinions are 100% mine.
When I grocery shop, I comparison shop among the national brands and store brand.  The obvious difference between the brand and store brand is the higher price of the national brand products which is driven higher by the marketing efforts such as nicer packaging and numerous commercials in magazines and on TV.  Now, being frugal I often go with the lowest price but I do compare ingredients too, it is important to know what is in your food.  If the ingredients are the same or similar then I do not hesitate to go with a store brand.  A penny saved is a penny earned.
Family Dollar store brand Family Gourmet is an excellent way to save families money, by lowering their price and not their standards.  They offer quick and easy compare and save between Family Gourmet to the national brands.  On average you can save 30% by buying Family Gourmet versus national brand.
For example, the same size (34.5 oz) Family Gourmet Ground Roast Coffee is a $2.50 saving over Maxwell House original.  The Family Gourmet Non Dairy Creamer is a $1.25 saving over Coffee Mate Creamer.  That's a $3.75 saving just on your morning coffee.  Just think what else you can save on the 3 important meals of the day.
It's reassuring to know that every Family Gourmet product is quality tested to match the brand.  Family Dollar are so confident that their customers will like Family Gourmet that if you are not satisfied you will get 100% money back guarantee within 30 days for a refund or an exchange with a receipt.  Stop by Family Dollar you have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

Free Info and Resources About RVs and Camping

If someone told me during my twenties I'd step foot in an RV, I'd say they were crazy.  I did indeed a few years ago while working and partying at a Nascar event.  There are some amazing decked out RV's out there and not cheap too.  Guess what I'm part owner of one LOL

My husband's family are big Philadelphia Eagles fans and every home game they religiously camp out in the parking lot with friends to tailgate.  It is a lot of fun but the harsh North East weather has taken its toll and several families broke down and brought an RV together to give us shelter during the long day and night of tailgating and somewhere to store all our gear.  Also its so nice to not have to line up for the porta-potties.

Well this year we decided we'd use the RV during the spring and summer (NFL off season) and go exploring with our neighbors who are avid RV camp ground fans (although current gas prices have me scared).  We have a few places picked and the kids are excited.  If you have any interest in camping in an RV (whether you rent or buy), be sure to check out, its fun site packed with tips and you can opt-in to receive some informational material for your trip.

Are you feeling Lucky? Its Your Lucky Day - Free Redbox Codes

Are you feeling Lucky?

I feel lucky as I'm blessed with a wonderful healthy family. 

What more can you ask than that?

 In this day and age families are torn apart through economics, war, disaster and illness and here I am blessed with two healthy children and a lovely husband who through their unique energetic being makes each day special and memorable even through the good and the bad.  I'm lucky as my husband provides generously with his love and in my childrens eyes he's the coolest Daddy in the whole universe.  My children are lucky to spend quality time with both Grandparents and all the Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and extended family play an important part in our lives too.   

I feel lucky to live in countries that allows freedom.  In our comfy western lives we are too caught up in the now that we forget there are others around the world who are fighting for their lives and have nothing to eat or a roof over their head or are persecuted for the color of their skin or religious beliefs.  I feel lucky that I not only have food on the table and a roof over my head but I am equipped with knowledge and experience through hard work and persistance to provide for my family and that I have a voice and can be heard.  I feel lucky that I can make choices about the way my family lives, that we can have a say in our future through recycling efforts and support others through charitable donations.

So whenever that freebie deal doesn't pan out or the basement floods or the electricity bill comes in I just think about my family and all that we have and my silly notions just fly away.

It's your lucky day because the only thing better than $1 a night movies is FREE movies!

Who doesn't like Redbox? Redbox is at my local grocery store and its so convenient to pick up groceries and a movie. You can take it back to any store that has a Redbox rental.  Plus pay only $1 per movie.  We spend quality time on Monday night watching movies and Redbox is our source of movies because who can't beat $1 movies.  So now with the free movie opportunity there is no excuse.

Lucky you though as Redbox is giving everyone the chance to score free movie credits now through St. Patrick’s Day during the Redbox Lucky to Have Friends Like You promotion.  Rental credits are valid for ten (10) days after they’ve been deposited into your account. Tell your friends, to tell their friends, and start rolling in free movies this March.

Sign up here for your free rental code.

Disclosure: I wrote this blog post while participating in the SocialMoms and redbox blogging program, for a $25 Walmart gift card from redbox. For more information on how you can participate, click here.”
