Mission Tortillas Coupon printing as of 6:30PM AK

I never get this when it is posted on other sites.  I try it when I see it but there are never any coupons.  But today when I clicked on The Coupon Project's old post from yesterday, which was dead last night, it was alive today!  So go here to print your $.75 coupons towards any one package of Mission Tortillas. 

Starbucks Coffee Treat Receipt

Don't throw away your morning receipt from you Starbucks Coffee (or "any purchase" before 2pm).  If you take it back after 2PM you can get any Grande (16 oz) cold drink for just $2.00.  I don't know yet if this applies to Alaska yet.  It runs from June 29th through October 4th.  Check out the details here

Hillshire Farm's Fresh Taste Challenge $5.00

Take the Hillshire Farm's Fresh Taste Challenge Here  Try a tub of their lunch meat and let them know what you think.  If you like the lunch meat they will give you $5.00 in coupons instantly.  I wonder if they let you print them twice?  Or if you don't think it tastes fresh they will send you a $5.00 gift card in the mail (can take 8 weeks).  You will find a unique code in the package to enter on their site.  One gift card per address.

Fred Meyer's Monthly Deals (June 23rd-July 20th)

I highlighted the deals I thought were notable.  I double checked almost everything but I have a crazy, potty training, two-year-old kiddo who insists on including me in playtime.

Free DiGiorno Pizza

On Facebook DiGiorno is giving away a free deep dish pizza if you post a silly picture of yourself.  It is really easy.  You just paste your face on a photo-opt cutout.  It seriously is really easy.  I thought it was going to take a lot longer.  They send it to you through the mail.  Here

Coca Cola Coupon

I can never find these so I'm really happy to tell you that there is a coke coupon on Facebook.  Here  The coupon states "Save $.99 toward a 14 oz, 16 oz, or 20 oz bottle of Coca Cola."  You send the coupon to a friend on facebook and then they need to send a message back to you with a coupon.  You can only print them once per computer.

Where Did I Go?

   I just noticed my last post was on Wednesday.  My gosh!  Things have been a little crazy.  I have to say that my husband has been saving us money left and right these past couple of weeks.  Summer hits and he becomes Mister Fix-It. 
  We had a post office box but it just got too expensive.  So for $45.00 worth of supplies we now have a mail box.  I realized that in the past 4 years we have spent over $500.00 just to have a little box that we only drive to every two weeks.  He did a really nice job setting up the new one. 
  On Friday night we realized the crawl space under the house had flooded.  I had planned a major shopping trip for that night but instead we gathered every towel in the house for a very dirt filled evening.  Water was everywhere.  Under us and dripping down over us.  Yuck!  A water pipe under the sink was leaking and again for $45.00 my husband had everything fixed.  Well after a mild geyser in the kitchen. 
  And now tonight he is outside fixing the reverse on his boat.  He just took apart an ironing board to use it as handle.  And two weeks ago he put lawnmower wheels on a heavy duty Little Tikes wagon I got at a yard sale for $5.00.  The wagons Little Tikes make are really nice except for the hallow plastic wheels.  But now it is suped-up with solid rubber wheels, but are still sporting the white rims.
  I have realized how lucky I am to have a husband that values saving money and giving new life to things we already have.  I couldn't imagine putting all the work I do into cutting costs if he spent frivolously.  It really is a team effort.  So tonight I salute my amazing husband...  the Jack of all Trades... the Master of None.  Ha ha, just kidding.  You amaze me with your ingenuity.

I keep seeing a book all over the place, "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest."  I guess that makes me "the girl who raked the hornet's nest."  I worked for 4 hours this past weekend to take out a huge wild rose bush... HUGE.  I'm 20 minutes from having the whole thing done and I get stung by a hornet through my gardening gloves.  It would have been funny if it hadn't of hurt so much because it got stuck through my gloves.  While I was dancing around, it was going on a wild ride.  I'm mildly allergic so I ran in and took some Benadryl.  After a couple minutes, I went back outside to finish the job.  I knew how bad my hand was going to look in a couple hours and I was taking advantage of the time until the distorted, swollen claw showed up. 

I went to work raking up the brush again.  The wet ground was causing the gnats to go crazy.  There were so many gnats but there was also an increasing number of hornets.  Maybe I made them mad when I put my hand in their nest.  Yep, apparently their nest was in the root system and I was wrist/rake deep in their home... in a bathing suit.  I'm so lucky!  I can't believe I only got stung once.  Needless to say, I stopped.

 I'll get some spray and then get back to work this weekend.  The best money saving tip I can tell anyone is to plant a garden.  But sadly it is the middle of June and it is only half planted.  I thought if I put a play area right next to it, my son could play and I could work.  He should enjoy it while he can because next year he will be planting too... AKA organized digging in the mud. 

Snapple B1G1

I guess within minutes of my posting the Facebook Snapple coupon it disappeared.  I was able to find it again through the Snapple Promotion Website  Here

Happy National Iced Tea Day!

Dog Food Challenge

I'm so sorry for being so behind on this challenge.  Don't worry though, the dogs are being fed even though I'm not posting about their food.  Here is a recap...

The first huge batch of food made enough for a week.  I was still supplementing their regular dog food so it went a little farther.  I was worried about the salmon going bad in the fridge for that long so I froze about 4 days worth in the freezer.  That didn't go over so well.  It froze like a rock.  After two days of thawing in the fridge it was still just as hard.  I resorted to thawing it is the microwave but for some reason all the bags would leak fish water.  On top of all this I was super sick.

Last Monday I went to grab more salmon from the freezer and found some steak.  The steaks were a thorn in my side from this past winter.  They were a gift from my father in law that accidentally got forgotten about in the fridge.  The nicest thing to ever sit in my refrigerator and I was serving "lowest price of the season" chicken.  I found it a day past expiration, washed it off because I guess I thought that would help, and decided that it was getting made for breakfast.  The steak we didn't finish that day (it was really good) I immediately froze.  And here I find it in the back of the freezer.  So into the huge pot it went.  It was my steak therapy. 

I didn't have to buy anything at the grocery store for that batch but I did use some frozen vegetables that I'm going to need to re-buy when they are on sale again.  I got them for $.75 during the March Frozen Food Sale at Safeway.  I also used the rest of my rice ($1.40).

I made another batch this past weekend of salmon, rice, and vegetables.  I grabbed a bag of rice at Freds for $4.49 and used more frozen vegetables ($.75).  I'm so glad we are using up the salmon.  Last year I went on a smoked salmon jerky making spree with the leftover catch. 

Money Invested After 3 Weeks...
20 quart stock pot $20.70 (org. $45.99)

Safeway's Buy 8, Save $4.00 Deals STILL VALID PLUS MORE!

Tonight I did a last minute trip to Safeway.  I put all that work into my list and it almost went to waste because I was sick.  I did the savy thing and checked next weeks sales (it posts at 8pm on Tuesday) and noticed more Buy 8, Save $4.00 items.  I saw some were the same and some were new.  I decided to update my list (on paper, it isn't in the computer yet). 

While I was actually in Safeway I noticed every single item with the Buy 8, Save $4.00 tag runs until the 15th.  The flyer in last weeks ad said those deals ran until the 8th.  Wrong!  Keep that flyer! 

I almost feel like we have a double flyer week.  I know it is only $.50 discounts but most of items are marked with a Reg Price... Club Price... and then the $.50 discount.

Free Nabisco Cookies (Includes Alaska!)

Sorry there were no blogs this weekend. I don't know what happened but Saturday I was as sick as death warmed up.

I wasn't going to post this because the newspaper ad said that it was for the 48 contiguous US on the newspaper flyer. Even though I have family that follow this blog from outside AK, I still get annoyed when coupons are ran that exclude AK. I'm fine if stores don't carry the product but if we are patrons of the product we deserve a shot at a coupon too.

BUT IT INCLUDES ALASKA! I printed the coupon and it states it is open to all residents of the 50 US states (except MD and VT, sorry guys). Ok, now I guess I should give you a little more detail on the coupon because it is more a Buy A List Get 1 Free...

Buy 1 package of Nabisco Cookies, 1 Gallon of Milk, 1 any other size Milk, and then get 1 package of Nabisco Cookies Free.

Log Onto Your Facebook Account, Find Nabisco Cookies Page, Click on Cookies and Milk Tag, Print!

Valid TODAY, June 7th! And the first Monday of each month for the rest of 2010!

Cellfire Cinderella Deal & New Coupons!

Cellfire is starting a new promotion by introducing a "Cinderella" deal. It is for Fred Meyers and their affiliated stores. For a short period, at a specific time, they will have coupons for a $money$ amount. I guess they gave $1.00 coupons today. I missed the time period it was open, but it looks like next week will be even better. Now that I know about the deal I will try to keep on top of it. From what I've read, Cellfire had a lot of problems with their computer system. Hopefully everything will run smoothly next time. This is the information they posted on Facebook...

"Thank you all for your patience! Please keep in mind that we will be having more of these promotions over the course of this month and they will be for HIGHER $$ amounts! Now that the glitch has been resolved, the next round should go much more smoothly."

The Cinderella Coupon Giveaway is now over. We ended up giving out 5x the amount we originally planned. Thank you all for participating and for dealing with our "glitch".
We'll be doing another Cinderella Cellfire Coupon Giveaway in the near future. And the next one will be even better. Thanks again."

Safeway's Buy 8, Save $4.00 Deals

The most important thing to state about this sale would be that it is a mix and match deal. You don't have to buy 8 2Liter bottles of Pepsi to get them for $1.00. You can pick 8 items on the list. I like picking my items before I go. If I don't choose my items, I buy more than what I need, because I'm trying to meet the 8 item minimum. I get to the check out and I have 15 items. Maybe I could do without the 3rd bottle of ketchup.

Pamper's Reward Codes

I've kept a list in the back of my coupon book of all the pamper's codes I have been able to find the last two months. Now that my son is almost out of diapers, I thought it was the perfect time to start playing the game (ha ha). I started receiving 10 point codes each time I checked out at Safeway and I have found a few in Fred Meyers. I love the little things in life! They are 10 points each unless otherwise noted.

Here is my list:

GTGPLAY3USA2010 (30 points)

And thanks to Alaskanbargainhunter I have these...

Debt is Not the End of the Story

I'm heading into North Pole soon to pick up the Safeway flyer and run a few errands. I know I can see the deals on the internet but I like the paper flyer. I'm going to catch a quick episode on Oprah. I'm not a big Oprah fan but it is an episode all about debt.

I'm big on being a debt fixer. I was pretty irresponsible with money when I was in my early 20s. I kept the lifestyle my parents gave me when I lived in their home, but only had a 20 something's salary. Luckily I grew up and became aware of what I was doing. I started putting a lot of money towards paying off bills and we created an emergency fund. And then life happened again. Long story short we have another large debt hole to focus on again. But we are going to conquer that too!

I think it is important to look at the big picture when you are saving money or feeling overwhelmed by lack there of. I think keeping up with the Jones is so self defeating. You may see their belongings but you don't see their credit card statements. They have a lot of money and they spend a lot of money. We don't have a lot of money so we don't spend a lot of money. BUT one day we will have money and we know how to live on less! Did that all make sense? Ha ha

All of the work you are doing to save your dollars (and cents) is going to be knowledge that you will use for the rest of your money spending life. I'm learning the real value of money. I'm learning the importance of deserving the best price. I'm learning how to find the better deals. I'm learning the price of everything in the store, ha ha.

Be proud of yourself for the work you are doing. I'm typing that for myself. When I save 50% it just doesn't seem like enough anymore. Be happy for 50%. Be happy for 15%. It is all money saved!
