My name is Karissa. I started couponing this last year, and I am hooked. It is such a rush putting together great deals to save my family money that we can spend on having fun. I work part time as a nurse and my husband is a teacher. I decided to create this site (www.ConfessionsofaCouponaholic.com) to share my deals with others. I plan on posting deals, links, pictures, and more on everyday essentials, baby necessities, and occasional freebies! Please pass on the word. Watch out, because before you know it, you might be hooked too!
So, we had some friends and family over and wanted something other than the typical chips, dip, and candy we had been eating. Instead, we made up artichokes and brussel sprouts. That sounds kind of weird, but it was really good! Recipes will be posted later. I got FREE parmesan cheese (no catch) to go on the sprouts, so I posted a little video.
Now is the time to stock up on Carter's sleepers and clothes! Kohl's is having a massive clearance sale along with some great promo codes to stack to make an even better deal. This would be a great shower gift to stock up on too.

I am telling you...it really pays to send emails to most companies. They appreciate hearing from customers and love to market their product. A couple of weeks ago I sent my standard email to Red Vines, which I will post in the new year. I told them I used their product, Red Vines Licorice Ropes, at my daughters birthday party to make candy necklaces and how much the girls enjoyed it. I got a Christmas present of three 1 pound bags of Red Vines. Woo Hoo! I plan on making a New Years resolution of emailing one company a day a compliment or critique in 2010. Look forward to my posts with both contact information and follow-up. Check out the video above.
3.5 oz box of butterscotch pudding cook & serve (don't use the instant kind)
1 cube butter or margarine
1 Tbs. Cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
18-20 Rhodes frozen dinner rolls
Place frozen rolls in bundt pan. Mix cinnamon, pudding, and sugar in small bowl. Sprinkle dry mixture over frozen rolls. Drizzle melted butter over top of the mixture. Put cloth over rolls, let rise overnight in room temperature. Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
This recipe has been a Christmas tradition in my husband's family and I have vowed to continue it because it so good and so EASY! I promise you will not be disappointed. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and can spend time and enjoy your family. Thank you for supporting my blog.
