Vocalpoint And Kraft first taste

If you are not a member of Vocalpoint, you should sign up here. Another great program is Kraft Foods First Taste which you can sign up here for. They both send FREE product coupons as well as $$ off coupons! I scored 2 Oreo Cakesters 2/.99 and 5 boxes of Kashi crackers and cookies 5/$4.60 with coupons from those two programs! These make great snacks for packed lunches and that amount will last a while at our house.

Frugal Friday

Over the years I have learned what I can cut in my budget to save money. One way I save alot of money is to not buy many gifts. I do give gifts but, they consist of freebies, .24 games, homemade cards, free entertainment, services someone needs, and lots of love! We do buy birthday and holiday gifts for our son but, no DS's or Wii's here. More like art supplies, games, books, and legos(all free or really cheap)! We also take my niece and nephews out for their b-days as well.
Here are some possible items I might include in a gift(you can find these deals at Target)

Easter- Free candy, Free or cheap Annie's Bunnies crackers, Free or cheap bath products, snacks,and etc. like:

Gillette 8oz Body Wash $1.99
use $4/2 from 2/21 P&G
total= 2 for FREE

Fruit Chillers from Del Monte -$1.83
use $1/1 HERE

Reach Toothbrush or Floss-.97
use $1/1 HERE

Mr Bubble- .$1.77
use $1/1 HERE.

Rimmel Mascara-$2.24
used $3 coupon from March All You

Post-it-notes page tabs $1.24
I used 4-$1.00/1 coupon from 1/10 SS
total: $0.96 for 4

You can also save up your Swagbucks to buy Amazon gift cards and then purchase larger items for bigger holidays!

When enough bad service is enough!

Where did "customers are always right" and "customers are your boss" thinking ever go? I know there is some great customer service out there. In fact I actually go to a supervisor after each great checkout experience and brag about the cashier to them. I advise anyone who experiences great customer service to do this as well. After all we want those great ones to stick around!
Today on the other hand had to be the worst customer service I have ever gotten! In fact I would call this experience a customer non-service! A few days ago we took our car into Wal-mart to get the oil changed and service done. Upon driving home my husband noticed a weird noise. We knew that we had a recall service that needed to be done on our car and had made an appt. to do so. Today we went in for our recall service and they told us at the dealership that whoever checked our air filter last busted our air filter case and it was $106. That was the weird noise and that Wal-mart was responsible to pay for it. We then went to Wal-mart to show them the papers from the dealership and they called us liars. To make this story short we are not foreseeing any payment from them!
I have slowly been shopping less and less at Wal-mart and more and more at Target over the last few months because Target has great deals! They are always clean and to tell you the truth I haven't had any customer service problems with them except once (about a coupon). O.K. I just needed to vent a little and I realized today enough bad service is enough for me and I can get great deals somewhere else! However I will still post a great Wal-mart deal if I can't find it at another place. I know alot of you still shop at Wal-mart. $30 oil changes/filter checks at a store who calls their customers liars are not in the cards for us anymore. Please feel free to share your good and bad experiences in the comment section.

Ultimate Recipe Swap

Like many others I also have tricks when it comes to making lunches. I make homemade lunchables and homemade uncrustables once in a while. Here is how:

Homemade lunchables

You will need a Bento box or 3 small containers
crackers (any kind) I go for the ones I get for free or cheap with coupons
lunchmeat or leftover ham/turkey slices
block or slice cheese

place crackers in 1 cont.
cut lunchmeat/meat in squares or circles and place in 2nd cont.
cut cheese in squares or circles and place in 3rd cont.
There you go you have a homemade lunchable. You can add a pc. of leftover V-day candy. I usually add fruit and a reusable jug of juice.

Homemade uncrustables

You will either need a Pampered chef Cut-N-Seal — $9.00 (this is what I use) ,a knife. or biscuit cutter
a reusable sandwich wrap (this is what I use) or some kind of bag
fillings (pb&j, lunchmeat, honey)

Make your sandwich like normal but, don't place fillings on edges
cut into circle with your choice of cutter
place in bag or wrap
Don't forget to feed the birds the crust or save for homemade stuffing:)

Thanks for holding this swap!

Another Target Deal

Target has bulk size products up to 50% off. If you are heading to Target this might be worth looking into. Remember when Target goes 50%off they usually go 75% off soon.

Menu Plan Monday

I don't like to waste food because to me food thrown away is like throwing away money. When I menu plan I think of ways to use leftovers and sometimes freeze them to use later. We might have BLTs one day, tacos the next, chef salad the third day, bacon,eggs,toast the fourth and so on just to use up things that spoil quickly. It is rather simple but, saves tons of money!

Monday- Grilled ham and cheese, salad (leftover ham from Sun. and leftover salad from tacos last week)

Tuesday-Chicken Cordon Bleu, garlic bread, veggies ( leftover ham from Sun.)

Wednesday-Beef goulash, garlic bread, corn* (leftover garlic bread from Tues.)

Thursday-Country Ribs, oven fries, veggies*

Friday-Chicken-zuccini pizza, veggies* ( leftover zuccini from zuccini/pineapple bread and leftover chicken from crockpot chicken )

Saturday-BQ pulled pork on Onion bun, soup (leftover pork from pork roast)

Sunday-Roast, potatoes, carrots (maybe I will make hot roast beef sand. later with these leftovers)

5 Little things in my kitchen that help me save $$$

1) My plastic bag dryer from reusablebags. I use this everyday to dry ziploc bags after washing so, I can reuse them and for drying reusable water bottles that I pack in my sons lunch.

2) A clean/dirty homemade magnet for my dishwasher. I made this by using one of those free picture frame magnets and a piece of paper that says clean on one side and dirty on the other. I love this because my son (he puts up the dishes) knows when they are ready to be put up. This saves me from rewashing them.

3) My foaming soap dispenser. I put whatever soap I have on hand (usually that I got free) in there and add water. This cuts back on spending $$ on expensive hand soap.

4) My crockpot. I can cook a whole chicken or roast in there, then use it for 2-3 meals. I can also save on dishes by not using 3-4 pans.

5) My menu plan. I have a calendar that I use to plan my meals for the month which saves me a ton of $$.Check out for some of her ideas to save $$$.
