I was really bummed when I first got to Toys R' Us this morning. I set my alarm and woke up early because I was so excited about the My Little Ponies being BOGO and using my BOGO Coupon to get some for FREE. When I got to the store they were OUT! I asked an employee and he said they were sold out yesterday...they didn't have any for BIG 1 day sale today. Seriously what kind of 1 day sale is it when the store doesn't have any before the sale even starts? Oh well, I moved on to the Hasbro games. Of course they were out of Battleship and Gator Golf, but wait...I looked up (best tip when the store is "SOLD OUT"). On top of the shelves where they keep backstock inventory they had Gator Golf and Battleship. Pretty excited about the deals I did get, but I wish that when Toys R' Us has it's next 1 day sale they will actually have the product on the day of the sale.

I am trying to drink more water, and I don't really like the taste of water...problem.  So, I add flavor to my water.  Please comment if you have any great ideas.

Swag Hunt out until 7:30 cst!



There is a Swag Hunt out until 7:30 pm cst! Go here for more details. It’s worth 20 points!

Unsure of what SWAGBUCKS is? Here is a quick tutorial:


(1) Join Swagbucks.  Click here or on the picture to join Swagbucks. (It will ask you to enter some information here.  You DO NOT need a Swagcode here.  It is optional, and you don't have one...no worries)

(2) Earn Swagbucks.  There are many ways to do this. 
  • Use www.Swagbucks.com as your search engine (no worries, it is powered by Google)




  • Sign up for promotional offers (ie, sign up for Netflix FREE 2 week trial = 75 instant Swagbucks!) There are two "walls" full of promotional offers.  A few that I have done include: Netflix, Blockbuster online, and CreditReport (each got me at least 75 Swagbucks!).




  • Enter Swagcodes as announced frequently on www.Swagbucks.com 
  • Install the Swagbuck toolbar on your browser 




  • Refer friends! (You get 3 Swagbucks for every friend you refer)
(3) Redeem Swagbucks earned
  • My favorite thing to buy is $5 Amazon Gift Cards for 45 Swagbucks (really the best deal!).  It is easy!  You just go to the Swagstore once you have enough Swagbucks.  Buy $5 Giftcards and they send you an e gift certificate.
I hope you are excited to get going!  Keep in mind that the more you do with Swagbucks, the more you earn.  A common misconception is that one can search on www.Swagbucks.com over and over again to get Swagbucks.  They have this one figured out.  You just search as you normally would, and they reward you as you go...the big bucks are in promotional offers and referrals.

Have fun earning FREE stuff!

I don't always make great choices with my "sweet tooth," so I appreciate the options.  My husband loves your tapioca!  Thanks again, Karissa"

Outgoing: Kraft "Minute Tapioca"

FREE Scrubbing Bubbles!

Ok, I know that it seems like I am always buying cleaning products...I actually really am. I LOVE cleaning products. I am a very "Type A" person and love to clean. I actually feel bad for my 20 mo. old daughter sometimes because one of her favorite things to say is "Pick up, Pick up". Some things I have to do on a daily basis: make my bed, wipe my counters with disinfectant cleaner, wash the dishes (I could never leave a dish in the sink!), laundry...the list goes on. I have the hardest time letting it go. Maybe one day I will not be so OCD. I really can't wait until we finish the basement so our daughter can have a play room so that she can play with her toys and leave them out :) Thoughts???

Scenario at Safeway:
Scrubbing Bubbles $1.99 when you buy 4
-$2.00/2 Peelie Coupons x2 (found on some of the products) or
-$0.75/1 Coupon 3/21 SS (thanks Joelle!) x4
=$3.96, get back $4.00 Catalina
