Here’s a great lil’ freebie to start off the week….just click HERE, and you’ll get a FREE $2 credit to use on Amazon’s instant video….that means a free television show or movie! :)
Happy Monday! :)
Hurry HERE to get a free sample! YUM! :)
I’m a total homebody by nature. My idea of a good time is snuggling on the couch with a glass of wine, a puppy & a Real Housewives reunion. :)
However, every now and again I do like doing something fun….and wouldn’t this be awesome? An at home wine tasting party. Yum!
And the labels you see in the pic above are free printables! Even better! Just go to Trader Joes & grab a few bottles of cheap(ish) wine, print THESE LABLES and you’re set. :)
If you’re looking for not-so-scary images for Halloween….here’s some cute lil’ figures right up your alley! Go HERE to download the font. :)
Holy moly!! It’s been forever and a freakin’ day since I’ve posted on this here blog. Lots of reasons why…but mostly because I got bored writing about the same coupon deals that a gabillion other sites were too. I also got sucked into the whole money side of the blogging world. I would post things just because they might have made me a few cents (no kidding)….not because I wanted to write about it and not because I thought it would benefit you guys. And that’s just dumb.
Since I took a break from blogging, there’s been a whole bunch of newsworthy things going on in my world. Most notably, I added a new furry friend to my life. That’s her in the pic above….her name is Zoey and I adopted her from the Wire Fox Terrier Rescue group. I couldn’t have asked for a better pup….she’s so funny and loving and really well behaved. She’s happy sleeping at my feet while I work or bouncing around playing fetch. I love her to bits & bits! :)
I also, just a week ago, found out my long running syndicated coupon column got the axe. This was sad…just because it was something I did for so long….but it was also okay. Only writing about coupon match-ups was getting boring for me…I missed “real” writing. So I would submit stories about fun, more interesting subjects that would run on the sites but for which I wouldn’t get paid. I felt a little poopy about that.
After bumming for a few days (no one likes getting sacked), I decided to take this as a message from above that I should start doing things I love again. I’m quite the crafty fellah and I love creating things. I used to do that all the time…a friend and I even traveled to Florida, Chicago & New York to sell our wares. Chicos was even interested in maybe wholesaling our items. That was a really fun time…so why not take this opportunity to go back to that? Exactly!
So that’s what I’m going to do! I’m so excited! My plan is to start out with a dog collar & accessory shop on Etsy called Zoey Leigh after my new best friend and my grandma. Once I save up enough dough for supplies & can get started, I want to donate at least 5% of my sales to the Wire Fox rescue where Zoey came from…I want to do everything I can to help that amazing organization. :)
But I’m also going to start blogging again daily here. Not how it was though….no more bending over backwards for a buck. Nope. Now I’m going to blog about what interests me. It might be a recipe, a DIY or crafty project, a freebie….or a great deal at Walgreens. There will still be coupons in every corner…but I don’t want my blog to be just another cookie cutter coupon blog. I want it to be all about who I am…and that’s a little bit couponing, a little bit craftin’, a whole lot of cute Zoey pics, and whatever else tickles my fancy.
I hope you’ll join me back on my blogging journey. I missed you all! :)
Today’s freebies are just a’flying atchya! Here’s another GREAT one! Just click the pic or HERE to get THIRTY THREE free songs that are great for summer!

Free is always good….and whoever said nothing in life is free never visited this lil’ site! :)
Click the pic or HERE to snag a freebie Schick Hydro Silk (ohhhlalah!)…but hurry…I’m sure this freebie will be gonezo lickity split!
I LOVE this offer! I’ve gotten it twice now…& I still use my first bag in my purse everyday. Inside the quality bag you’ll get all sorts of samples and Target coupons (that you can stack with manufacturer ‘pons!)! YAAHOOOOOT!
Just click HERE and you’ll shoot to Target’s facebook page. It seems to be swamped as huck right now…but they’re usually very generous with these guys so we should all be able to snag one! :)
If you have a Culvers in your area (not sure if they’re exclusively a Wisconsin thing…) you’ll LOVE this coupon!
Just go HERE, fill out the survey (it only takes a second) & you’ll get a BOGO coupon for their bacon burger…keep playing & you’ll get even more coupons!
I got a BOGO burger ‘pon, BOGO shake ‘pon & a $1 off a chocolate shake ‘pon!
Now I gotta go work out so I can indulge in some chocolatey burger ‘n bacon goodness! ;)
Holy moly guys!!
Right now at Target you can snag a FREE handheld FoodSaver vacuum system! I have a larger one of these and I LOVE IT!! Actually, looking at this photo mine basically is this one…but mine has a clunky monkey base. I think I may just switch to this lil’ guy! :)
Anyhoo…back on track, Sara…..right now you can get that guy above for absolutely free by combining two coupons….first, go HERE and print this one…
Then head on over HERE and print this one…
I found both coupons under the “household” tabs.
The handheld FoodSaver is only $19.97 at Target which, after stacking the above ‘pons, means FREEEEEEEEE! :)
Also, look at Target’s coupons for a BOGO ‘pon on the FoodSaver bags. The handheld system doesn’t include the bags so you’ll want to pick those up.
I have saved so much moola using my FoodSaver to vacuum seal meat that I’ve found on awesome sales, or on clearance at Target. Since I’m a single gal I’ll get a big ol’ pack of meat & then seal them into individual servings & freeze. That way I’m not wasting any and I can defrost just what I need….all while saving tons of money by taking advantage of great prices. :)
These make awesome gifts too…so be sure to stock up on a few to give away! :)
Lawwwwwwwrd knows I have a TON of these Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet kits…but here’s yet another way to get these for free & make a sweet lil’ profit on ‘em!
Go HERE & print the above coupon…I used zip code 32256…
Then go to Target…where this week if you buy one of these kits for $9.49 you’ll get a $5 Target gift card! Use your $5 off coupon & that’ll bring the total out of pocket to $4.49…receive $5 back in the gift card & you just made 51¢!
But it gets sweeter!
Go back to THIS SITE & look for the rebate under zip code 77477.
You’ll get $5 back in the mail making this a $5.51 money maker! WHOOP!
And this is why I love couponing! :)
DIY projects like these make my singleton butt burn! Someday I’ll be the craftiest wife/mom/neighbor evah! But….until then….my single gal self will share it with y’all so you can be the craftiest wife/mom/neighbor on the block!
I saw TONS of eggs at the dollar store last week & this project would be awesome to use those for! I’d think you could make this guy for under $5! Be sure to check out the dollar store ribbon too….I get all my ribbon there—it’s awesome, posh satin & cheap-cheap-cheap! :)
Click HERE for all the instructions!
HOPPY EASTER! :)
I’m in the mood to do some spring cleaning tomorrow….which may include some spring decorating, too! I think this ol’ place could use some spiffying up….as I’m getting borrrred of staring at the same ol’ same ol’.
Thus…my Pinteresting eye landed on this pic…and it took me HERE…to 10 AWESOME and cheap (!!!) ideas on how to make your walls sing again! :)
I just discovered THIS on Pinterest & had to share! I save all my plastic bags for my best friend to use when our dog does her biznaz. ;) Usually I give him a ginormo puffy bag filled with balled up bags. Not anymore!
Now he’ll get a bag filled with these!
I just made those! WHOOP! Click HERE for all the deets….& to see how the gal who came up with this brilliance stores ‘em.
Am I the only one who loves weird lil’ finds like this? Makes my day! :)
