For those of you who don't have a membership to BJ's but who might be interested in checking out the store and their prices, you can print a free one-day pass here. (Thanks, Julie!)
If you like the SoyJoy bars or think you might like them (I personally think they are, ahem, less than appetizing. But you might completely disagree!), you can go here to request a free sample.
Free sample of Always Infinity (Thanks, Kathy!)
Go here to print another $0.50/1 Cottonelle coupon (can be printed twice). As I mentioned last week, use these on the $0.99 4-packs at Kroger stores (and maybe elsewhere?) and if your store doubles, these are free! Who can't use some free toilet paper?!
Also, while you're at that link, be sure to print the $0.50/1 No Yolks pasta coupon and the $3/2 Johnson's coupon. Use the No Yolks coupon (if your store doubles) to get some free or almost-free pasta and use the Johnson's coupon on the small first aid packs to get them free (a number of different stores carry these including CVS and Wal-mart).
If you're a Texas resident, you can go here and request $5.50 in coupons from Schepps Dairy. (Thanks, Kim!)
FOR MORE COUPONS, search our comprehensive Coupon Database for manufacturer coupons, printable coupons, eCoupons, and more!
Print your coupon here to receive a free beverage or pastry when you purchase a medium or large beverage at Seattle's Best Coffee (located in Border's stores) around the country. You can check for the nearest locations here.
I love these coupons as they make for very inexpensive dates! Best of all, the coupon wording does not say that this coupon can only be redeemed once per person, only that you can only use "one per person, per visit". And it's good through March 4, 2009!
Well, so much for my grand idea that things would be back in full force last week–including all of our regular features like the Walgreens and CVS deals and Super Savings Saturday.
For those who didn't know, we took a long-anticipated and much-saved-for trip to San Antonio Thursday through Sunday to attend the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival.
I had every intention of blogging while I was gone since there was supposed to be free wi-fi at both our hotel and the convention center. But not only would the wi-fi not work for me, I had little time for blogging anyway. Meeting many of you, taking care of the girls, and listening to wonderful lectures and films filled up just about every waking moment of the first two days.
And then Kaitlynn came down with an awful stomach bug the last day and a half. I'll spare you the details, but I'm sure many of you other moms of young ones can imagine!
It didn't take long for me to just hope and pray we could make it home in one piece–and soon! I packed as many changes of clothes, wet wipes, and so forth as I could scrounge up and we left for the airport for our scheduled return flights home.
We made it through our first flight only to discover upon landing that our next flight was cancelled and we were stuck in the Dallas airport for five more hours–with two little children (one who was very sick) and a tired pregnant mama.
Needless to say, I was never so grateful to make it home. Kaitlynn is much improved today and other than mountains of thrown-up-on laundry that I have waiting for me, things are mostly back to normal.
So I also hope that I'll really and truly be back to regular blogging here starting today. Thanks for your patience with me this past week–and these last few weeks. I'm blessed to have readers who are willing to let me put the needs of my family before blogging. Thank you all.
If you have a young girl in your life who loves crafts, you will definitely want to sign up up for this giveaway. My Handwork Studio–a needle art website and community for children–has just begun a fun new "Kit Of The Month Club".
Children who are members of this club will receive at their doorstep all of the tools and
materials required to make a high-quality, unique craft each month. The USB bracelet included in each kit contains video “how-to’s” and
downloadable instructions. All tutorials are led
by “kid educators” and have been approved, tested and filmed by fellow
By the end of the 12-month program, those enrolled in this club will amass a “crafters’
closet” full of high-quality supplies, including a variety of knitting
and embroidery needles, and felting tools.
My Handwork Studio sent my daughter their first kit–a kit teaching you how to make finger-knitted scarves. Kathrynne is only 3 1/2 so I wasn't sure how much she'd be able to do, but she loved the kit and the video tutorial. And I was especially impressed with how well-put-together everything was and how easy it was for me to do it with her. Kathrynne and I made a special memory together as we knitted our scarves.
Would you enjoy trying out a kit like this with your daughter, granddaughter, neice, or another special young girl in your life? Well, My Handwork Studio is giving away five kits to readers today on my blog.
To enter to win one of these kits, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post in the next 24 hours. Five winners will be randomly selected from all entrants and posted shortly after the contest closes.
