LOVE coupons like this! There is a $5 off any $5 purchase or more from the Gap coupon with no limit on how to use it! (It is through Gap Kids, but can be used at any Gap Store). I am thinking clearance! Here is how to score it:
HERE is what I got with my $5 coupon - It was marked down to $7.96, but it rung up at $5.63! After the coupon, it was only $0.63, I love clearance!!! My niece Aurora will just absolutely DIE when she see's this.
For $0.63 it will make a three year old very happy and a cheap Christmas gift. :)
95% off at PaperCulture.com through EcoMom.com, today only! $1 will buy you $20 worth of products. Limit one per person. The cards are a tad spendy, but after discount it's like paying only $.13 a card!
I absolutely love my Sundays. Around here we don't work, we don't go out to eat and .... *gasp* we don't even coupon shop on Sundays! You might think we are crazy, but we like to think we're smart. We think everyone deserves a day off to enjoy family to the fullest and have some time for personal reflection. It makes the week go by so much better. So with that in mind, every Sunday we want to highlight a moment that made us smile:
This will video will make you laugh!! How many times have you jumped to conclusions maybe a little too quickly? I do way too much. :)
If you have a thought that made you smile this week, send it to us!
As most of you know, we are Grocery Outlet lovers. I was at Grocery Outlet the other day, and I scored some things at amazing prices.
This was a perfect storm for some cream cheese won tons and mini eggs rolls. It was a busy Friday, the kids were turning my hair gray and I was thinking: "No complications, no looking up recipes. Just cook up some comfort food you little devil."
Won ton wraps are easy to use because all you do is get your finger wet and run it along the sides, then you press the sides together and they stick:
I gave my babes a little stack of wontons wraps, shredded cheese, and a bowl of water to make their own won ton thingamajigers while I cooked.
Egg Rolls: Put several tablespoons of oil in a pan, then throw in chopped up onions and the shredded cabbage. I didn't measure, just remember the cabbage shrinks down a lot Once my veges were soft and translucent, I threw on some soy sauce and took them off the heat. I wrapped that up in some won ton wraps and fried them in more oil (also baked some @ 350 for storage in the freezer afterwards). Easy mini egg rolls! (Normally pork or tofu, along with sesame seed oil, would be great additions. But, that would jack up the complications and price, now wouldn't it? ;) )
Won Tons: Chop up green onions and plopped those in the won tons with some Philly cooking creme. Seal 'em up, fry or bake. Cream Cheese won tons Audrie-on-a-Friday style. (Another great recipe that tastes super delicious is to replace the Philly with ground beef. That's my sister, Sarrah's, recipe. She satisfies five hungry kiddos, ages 9 and under, with that one.)
So, the kiddy-mini-me's were munching on the egg rolls and won tons (don't judge, I fed them at least - I'll serve the veges in the morning :) ), I stuck half the egg rolls in the freezer, and I gathered what was left: everything in smaller quantities. So here's the rest:
I think people just notice it like a sore thumb because it's an outlet store - people can't shake the poor stereotyping. (The G/O does not intentionally sell expired things, by the way, it's against their policy. When I worked in the deli, we kept up on that pretty close.)
Even if it is close - like I'll buy the yogurts 3/$1. They normally range 5 days to a couple weeks out before "expiration". First, I go shopping once a week - we'll eat them up before my next trip. Second, frozen yogurt is delicious and great in smoothies. Third, yogurt can go a week past expiration. So even though G/O won't sell it after expiration, you can still eat it. This is just for one type of item, but you smell what I'm cookin', right? :)
Panda Express announced on Facebook that you can get a free 2-Entree plate when you purchase a $25 gift card! That's a great deal if you LOVE Panda. We eat there at least once a month.
If you haven't already guessed. I LOVE Target!! Yesterday I had lots of time on my hands so I just browsed and browsed through the store... AND I found some awesome deals to go with all those new Target web coupons that came out on Sunday.
Here is what I got and how I did it:
Here is one of my Target Halloween clearance finds I got today. You'd never guess it, but my dog just LOVED her new Halloween cow costume! ;) I also grabbed some candy on clearance for 30% off at $1.88. After the $1.50/1 Mars coupon (no longer available), they were only $0.38.
'Tis the season for promotions and crashing servers. Anyone who has participated in a large online event has experienced this frustration.
Imagine the situation like this: A Starbucks server is giving out 20 free samples and 50 people all at once discover this. Only and ONLY he can hand them out - no one can just take one off the serving tray. They all come bolting towards the server at once, but some move faster than others. Some can dash their arms right through the crowd and allow the server to place a sample in their hand. Others arms are moving in slow motion and, even though they're right up front with everyone else, the samples are getting handed out quicker to those who have the dashing fast arms. Then the unthinkable happens: The server passes out from exhaustion - you see - only he can hand out the samples and it became too much.
Now all the slow people much sit and wait, amongst the dashers who didn't make it either and other new dashers who start to accumulate. When the server wakes up for a new round of hand outs, you can only guess whose going to get some free hot chocolate.
Are you a slow-mo or a dasher? Here are some tips to make YOUR computer a dasher:
I got a Bed, Bath, and Beyond booklet in the mail last Wednesday, the one with a coupon on the back. It was a $5/$15 or more. I opened the ad: Low and behold a V-Roaster I've always wanted... for $19.99... $9.99 after MIR (Mail in Rebate). You know what that means, right?! Since you pay over $15 OOP (Out of Pocket), you can use the $5/$15 coupon to get this V roaster for just $4.99 after MIR! Here it is:
