Coffee Mate Coupons

For all the coffee lovers out there, here is a bit of good news. Coffee Mate is on sale and they reset their coupons!!! Print yours here.

Publix has 16 oz on sale for $1.67/ea
-$1 coupon
Final price $.67 cents!!

Kroger has 32 oz on sale for $2.50/ea
-$1 coupon
Final price $1.50

It all depends on what store your shopping at. Ounce for ounce they are the same price. And don’t forget to clip the 1/4 S coupon for another $1 off more Coffee Mate.

My personal favorite is the fat free French Vanilla. Yummy!


Cleaning with Vinegar

Did you know how versatile vinegar is?? White distilled vinegar is a popular household cleanser, effective for killing most mold, bacteria, and germs, due to its level of acidity. Cleaning with white distilled vinegar is a smart way to avoid using harsh chemicals and it’s CHEAP. Pick up a couple spray bottles and read this website here. I use it in the laundry, to clean the dishwasher and the coffee machine regularly. I was surprised to find out that it also works to clean up and deodorize spilled gasoline in the trunk of the car after carrying home gas for the lawnmower. You will be amazed!


CellFire Coupons

Freebies4Mom has a great post on CellFire coupons. Do you shop at Kroger or a store in the Kroger family?? CellFire coupons are loaded onto your Kroger Plus card. No clipping to use these. The best part is you can stack them with a manufacturer coupon!! Excellent!!


50% Michael’s Coupon

40% coupons are easily found in the paper, in fact there is one in this Sunday’s paper. But 50% is rare!! These were mailed to those who subscribe to the Michael’s newsletter. Receiving this coupon alone is worth signing up for this newsletter. Sign up here. I was not signed up so maybe we will both get one next time.

Did you know they have a FREE activity on Saturdays from 10am-12noon for children as well? The Knack is the kids club, ages 5-12. You do not need to register for the Saturday craft events. Check out the schedule here.

Don’t forget to check out my blog entries on other great freebie events in your area. That post is here.

Rain Day Activities

Spring showers seem to never end in our area lately so I thought a collection of ideas for things to do would be a great resource today. Especially where it concerns keeping kids entertained and your sanity intact. It’s true, you know it! Tell me which one is your favorite!!

This is a great article from Mom Advice on how she made a rainy day suitcase (from Goodwill – how frugal is she!!) for keeping the kids entertained. They only got to play with this special suitcase when it rained. The exitement from the kids was awesome and it seems so simple!!

Family Fun magazine (the online version) is loaded with simple inexpensive crafts. Check them out here.

Check out for your local area’s list of things to do for kids. The offer a comprehensive list of library storytimes as well what your local Mall might be doing and much more. Our family relies on this information a lot!

Family Education has a great list of printables, games and other creative ideas too.

And don’t forget to rent some movies and get the popcorn!!
