If you haven't found it yet, I have pretty much completely moved over to the Facebook page.  "Like" the page so you don't miss any deals!

Just posted a very HOT deal.

I hope this new arrangement is working out well for all of you.  It does seem to be an easier/quicker way to share things.  Feel free to make use of the Discussion tab, to post questions, finds, etc.

Making Sourdough Bread

I just typed a big post on my adventures in making Sourdough.  It is on the Facebook page, so check it out!

So far, I think the FB page is working out.  Hyperlinks are non-existent.  I am concerned that people get overloaded with posts.  Hopefully I can utilize the Discussion page for certain things.  Feel free to start Discussions about what you are interested in, if you have questions about couponing, or if you have a local deal you would like to share.

But, there have been some fun deals, and I miss sharing them with you.  Don't forget to let me know when you like a deal.  It is the feedback that drives me, so the more I know it helps others, the more motivated I get.

SwagBucks Special Offers

I had many more videos on the gWallet page in Special Offers today.  I have been checking for them everyday, as an easy way to get more SwagBucks.

Ideas for Packing Lunches

Lots of people are gearing up to go back to work or school.  I thought I would share a couple links I have found interesting.  My daughter will be starting school for the first time this fall, and I am completely committed to packing her lunch. 

Kitchen Stewardship has a great post on packing lunches.  I think one idea I have appreciated is that not every meal has to be a full-course affair.  Kids can get just as much nutrition from a variety of "snacky" foods.  By rotating between left-overs and a mix of snack foods (fruits, veggies, nuts/seeds, whole grains), I think the prep time can be minimized, especially on those busier mornings.

I really need to get in the habit of baking more nutrient-rich muffins and other baked goods.  Those would be fantastic additions.

I have previously shared the Weston Price article Packing the Perfect Lunch Box.  More great suggestions there. 

One of my other favorite links is Lunch in a Box.  I love the idea of the Japanese Bento--those cute little compartmentalized lunch boxes.  This blog is from a mom who packs a Bento for her husband and kids.  She shares how she preps the boxes in the morning.  While she appears to have quit posting, I still find it inspirational to read through the posts for new ideas.

I would love to avoid plastic altogether in our lunches, but don't feel that glass would be the wisest choice to send with my daughter.  I decided instead to get some great BPA-free plastic containers that are made to fit her lunchbox.  If I need to wrap anything, I will just use wax paper.  I got some extra stainless steel water bottles and two stainless steel insulated containers.  I am still hoping to make her some cute napkins, but if not, I will just throw in one of our cloth napkins. I also plan to just pack our regular silverware.  This will be an exercise in responsibility for her, also--to make sure everything comes back home.

I have no idea what to expect on this journey, but I think the challenge will be fun.  Hopefully she will be looking forward to her great lunches that are packed with love.

SwagBuck Special Offers

Wanna win more SwagBucks?

Every day you can earn 1 SB by voting on the Daily Poll (click on Ways to Earn, and then Daily Polls).  You can earn 1 SB every day for clicking through the No Obligation Special Offers.  And if you have the toolbar downloaded, you earn 1 SB every day.

A few Special Offers I found today that are worth noting:

Under gWallet,  you can earn 10 SB for printing a coupon to Quiznos.  (I am still waiting for these SBs, just an fyi.)  You can earn 3 SB for watching the Kia Soul music video (the hamsters--my kids love it).  BTW, this video disappears after you watch it.  So, if it shows up again the next day, you should be able to watch it again and earn the SB.  I think I have watched it 3 times now.

You can scroll through Special Offers from the Home Page, also.  There is a scroll bar that highlights some of the offers available.  I found an offer to watch a Dentyne video and earn 1 SB.  I will warn you-- it is 4 1/2 min. long!!  It is funny, though.

I also did the Coca-Cola Facebook App. offer for 9 SB.  Got them instantly.

If you haven't signed up for SwagBucks yet, I highly recommend it!!  You earn SB just for searching the internet, although you can earn more by doing Special Offers or referring friends.  You can cash in your SB for a variety of rewards, but my favorite is the $5 Amazon gift card. I have earned $95 in Amazon gift cards since starting with SwagBucks--and I am just doing something I would anyway-search the internet!

Today's deal on EcoBabyBuys is from Inspired by Finn.

Choose from three different colors of amber necklaces: dark amber, light amber, or multi-color.  Choose from 12-12.5 in or 13-13.5 in.  These have a great reputation for relieving/preventing pain.  Great for use on little ones who are teething.  You can read more information about amber necklaces HERE.  Each necklace is $13.25, which is 45% off the retail price.  First-class shipping is $2.92 for one.  However, if you buy more than one, first-class is no longer available.  So, it seems if you wanted more than one, the cheapest way to order would be to buy them one at a time using first-class shipping.

CVS Week of 7/18 Ideas

I got a $5 off $30 CVS coupon by email today (from the ExtraCare email), so I started thinking about how to use it.  Let me know if this is helpful, as I probably won't do this every week unless it is beneficial.

Here are some things on sale next week.  I am trying to find the free after ECB deals, etc.:

Biotrue Multi-Purpose Solution $2.99 = $2.99 ECB (limit 2)  Use $2/1q.  Makes it a $2 MM!  (Usually, you can't do the same deal multiple times in a transaction--so just do two transactions) This is a monthly deal.

Renpure Shampoo & Conditioner is B1G1 Free.  I just got some of the shampoo at Walgreens and really like it, so I may do this to up my purchase amt.  Some of the bottles have a try me free hangtag, (I have one), so you could get two free after mail-in rebate!

Pretzel M&Ms are 2/$1 with a $1ECB. (limit 1)  There was a $.75/2 in 7/11SS or a BOGO in a June insert--both make it a MM

Bayer Contour Blood Monitor  $14.99 with $5ECB  $10/1 4/25 RP.  Makes it Free.  Great to boost total, and I sell them or donate them.

Schick Intuition or Quattro  $8.97 with $4 ECB.  Use $4/1 June All You.  Only $.97

Gillette Pro Glide  similar deal as above with coupon from insert.  I have already used mine up.

Celsius Green Tea 4-pk  $7.99 = $7.99ECB (limit 1)  Use $2/1 coupon  makes it a MM

Pantene is 2/$6.97  with $2ECB when you buy 2 (limit 2)  There are lots of coupons, mostly $1/2 or $1/1.  I have a VocalPoint q for $1.50/1.  I also have a CVS CRT (from the coupon machine in the store) for $2/1 Pantene product (can stack with a manufacturer's coupon).  I have to check the expiration date though.  My CVS will take all CVS coupons (even ECBs!!) as long as they scan--which is usually about 5-7 days past the exp. date. I LOVE my CVS!!

CVS Hand Sanitizing Pen.  Price is probably around $1.99   Use coupon for freebie that I got by email

So, now you know what I look for.  Hopefully I can round up my coupons and pull together $30 worth of items for cheap or free, making some $$ in the process.

Free CVS Hand Sanitizing Pen

Go HERE to enter your CVS ExtraCare Card number and your email.  You will be sent a coupon for a free hand sanitizing pen from CVS.

Now, regardless of whether you can personally use something like this, you can get the coupon and use it to up your purchase total when using a $4 off $20 coupon or similar.  Freebies like this are fantastic for that purpose!

More Tips on Winning SwagBucks

I've been having a lot of conversations about SwagBucks lately.  I am probably wearing out all my friends on Facebook, with all the SwagBucks I earn, codes I find, and gift cards I cash out for.  =)   That brings me to my first tip--set up your account so that it posts on your FB page every time you win.  People start to get the idea that it's not that difficult to come by those coveted SwagBucks.

I have mentioned before that Amazon gift codes are issued on the 1st and 17th of each month.  I try to make it a goal to earn at least 450 SBs (the price of a $5 Amazon gift code) before each of those dates (cashing out asap).  Let's say I have 445 SBs on the 16th of the month.  Well, I use that as an encouragement to try to find a few more SBs.  That might mean some extra searching, or doing a Special Offer.  The easiest, guaranteed SB to win is by viewing the No Obligation Offers (found on top right of Special Offers page).  Just go down each page, click "Skip", until you reach the last page.  You will have then earned 1 (sometimes 2 or even 3) SwagBucks!  You can do this once every day.  If you have downloaded the Toolbar, (which makes it more convenient to search) you earn a SB or two every day when you log on.

Other Special Offers I have completed include getting an auto insurance quote, a home owner's insurance quote (we were actually looking for a new company and I went with one I found using SwagBucks!), signing up for an online gaming community, requesting info on a medical condition, etc.  Now, I will warn you that sometimes these offers can be VERY finicky.  I have signed up for a couple and never received the SBs.  Plus, don't give your primary email account!  Give one set up just for spam (because you will get some!)  This may or may not appeal to you, but I don't mind a little bit of hassle to earn 300 SBs in just a couple minutes.  They just recently added the ability to complete surveys to earn SBs, but I haven't gotten around to taking any yet.

Typically, a person might win SBs about 3 or 4 times a day.  You can search for SBs on any computer. You just have to log-in.  It usually seems that after I have won SBs several times on my Desktop, once I start searching on my laptop I start winning again.  You can even have others search for you.  You might have your hubbie/mom/etc. log-in and search, earning you SBs.

Don't forget that Fridays are MegaSwag days.  The amount of SBs you can win increases.  It's might be worth it to make a point of using SwagBucks on these days.

Of course letting other people know about SwagBucks is a great way to earn.  You earn matching SwagBucks with each referral, up to 1,000 SBs per referral (but only those earned by searching--not sign-up bonus, using codes, special offers, etc.).

If you are new to SwagBucks, feel free to check out these posts I have written previously:  Let's Talk Surveys (I mention ways to spend your SwagBucks)  and How to Win More SwagBucks

If you haven't signed up yet for SwagBucks, you can go HERE to get started.  You will earn 30 SwagBucks just for doing so!

Do you have any great tips for winning SwagBucks?

Entertainment Book & Using Competitor Coupons

It is always worthwhile to find out if any of the stores you frequent accept competitor coupons or price-match.

Home Depot and Lowes both accept competitor coupons.  Because of this, I scrounge up any and every coupon I can find that I think might possibly be accepted at HD.  They are really generous with this policy, and I have yet to be told I can't use my coupon.  I basically hunt for any coupon that I could use at another store and buy something similar to what is sold at HD.

If you happen to have an Entertainment Book for this year (mine is the St. Louis area edition), you should find a few coupons that can be used at Home Depot: 
$5 off $25 at Ace Hardware
15% off any item at Menard's (I'm gonna hold this one for a big-ticket item!)
There are also coupons for Sherwin Williams and Harbor Freight.  Now if I need to buy paint or tools, you can be sure I'll whip these suckers out!

So keep your eyes open, and take advantage of any potential savings that come your way!

Jasmere: Wry Baby's Funny Gifts & Gear

Today on Jasmere, get a $45 voucher to Wry Baby--current price is $19, but the more people who buy, the lower it goes (and it just started).

Wry Baby has snapsuits, toys and more, all to ensure baby grows up with a good sense of humor.  My favorites are the organic baby clothes.  Three to choose from: "Thanks...for all the global warming", "Ask me about my compost pile" and " 'Crunchy Organic Baby' Just picked and unspoiled"

I also like the Super Baby snapsuit with attached cape, and the matching snapsuits for twins that say "Stop copying me!"

Be sure to read the "Shipping & Details" section on Jasmere.  It's a single-use voucher.  Can't be used on books.  Can't be combined with other offers or vouchers (so I guess you can only use one per order).  Can't be used on shipping, tax or gift certificates.

Even if you buy a voucher now, you will only pay whatever the lowest price gets down to.

Jasmere has a new deal everyday.  You can also earn Jasmere dollars by sharing deals with your friends.
