Free boys jeans with Meijer gift card purchase!

I took my weekly shopping trip to Meijer yesterday and thought I would share a couple good deals!

Meijer is running a promo this week--when you buy $25 in gift cards, get $10 off denim instantly. The Falls Creek brand of boys' jeans are on sale this week for $10 so free if you buy a gift card! I used my $5 off mPerks coupon (from Facebook last weekend) and ended up with a $25 Meijer gift card (which I used for my groceries) and a pair of jeans for only $20! Great deal in my book.

Also, if you scored the $1.25 off Jell-O Mix-In Pudding coupon from Vocal Point last week, you can pick them up for only .25 after coupon! Meijer has them on sale 2/$3.00 this week and they have a .50 off coupon inside the package! I picked up the dirt pudding (with oreos) and my son COULD NOT WAIT to try these.

Unreal Candy Review

Thanks to the folks over at BzzAgent I was able to try out the new Unreal candy bars. I picked up the Chocolate Candy Shell Peanuts and the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. I will tell you, I didn't have high hopes. Usually you don't put "unjunked" and "candy" in the same sentence.

I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised. These are comparable to their name brand counterparts. Now, don't get me wrong. They are not interchangeable. When you take out things like high fructose corn syrup I don't think the taste can be exactly the same. However, to be able to get something that is comparable with no artifical flavors, no high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils, I'll take it. There is also a notable amount of difference in sugar amounts.

I have already used a coupon to purchase a couple to keep at the house. I can use them as lunch box treats for Mason. They are a bit more expensive than other candies, but worth it if you appreciate having a less processed treat. All in all, I'm happy with product and feel confident giving them to my kiddo! To check out more about the Unreal Candy line, just head over to the Candy Unjunked website.

I have some buy one get one free coupons to share...let me know if you'd like one!

Please note that I was supplied with a free sample of these items. However, the thoughts expressed here are my own.

1.00 off 2 Ore-Ida products!

Head over here to print a coupon for $1.00 off any 2 Ore-Ida products! These don't come around to often, so I would print it to save for a sale!

Kraft products as low as .41 at Meijer, starting 8/26!!

Hold on to those Kraft coupons you printed this morning!! Starting Sunday, 8/26, Meijer has many of these items on sale:

These are pretty good prices on their own, but when you figure in the catalina it gets even better! Purchase 3-5 products get $2 off, 6-9 products $5.00 off, 10+ get $10 off your next order.
If you purchase 2 of each product the deal would work out like this:

(2) Kraft Shredded Cheese- $2.56 after coupons
(2)Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Meat-3.00 after coupons
(2) Kraft Cheese Singles-3.00 after coupons

New Kraft coupons to print!

I think my printer may blow up this morning :) Head over to to print lots of new Kraft coupons (and a few others worth mentioning)!

Pinterest DIY project: ticket stub holder

Pinterest has inspired me to do all kinds of things. This little DIY project is one of them. It was pretty simple, too!

I went to Michael's and picked up a 3 pack of 8x10 shadow boxes for $10 (they were 50% off). Using stock paper I lined the back of the box but was clueless what to do to add my "personal touch". So, I Googled ticket stub pictures and chose a raffle ticket template from the Microsoft Office website. 

Since it's a template you can edit, I inserted some of our info to the raffle ticket: 1st prize fun, 2nd prize memories, 3rd prize laughter, etc. Then I finished on the bottom with "Our life in tickets beginning June 20, 2004" which is the oldest ticket in the box, from our first concert together. There is a little of everything in there--our room key from our honeymoon at Sandals, sky lift passes from Tennessee, Disney World tickets, Dave Matthews tickets.

If you have some scrapbook supplies and a few bucks I highly suggest giving this project a try. I did a lot of smiling and reminiscing today. I even had a few flashbacks to our life before's hard to believe that there was life before him, but these memories are living proof :-)

$1.50 off International Delight Coffee Creamer!

I love these high value coupons lately!! With fall right around the corner (sigh), Joe will be back to pouring 8 cups of coffee in his Thermos before work in the morning...which means A LOT of creamer!! I printed 2 of these after taking a little survey and plan to hold on to them and wait for a great deal.

To take the survey and print your coupon, just head over here.

Children's Disney Vitamins--$1.49 at Meijer through Saturday!

It's been (roughly) 76 days since my last post...

Alright. So it's been 76 days and I am just showing my face around Blogger again.  We didn't do a lot of traveling aside from our annual trip to Big Star Lake in Michigan and our weekend camping trip at Klipsch (aka Verizon, aka Dearcreek) Music Center to see Dave Matthews Band in Noblesville. It's ok to be jealous of my worldly travels :) The big guy has worked A LOT of overtime this summer so I have just tried to stay tuned in to Mason...which is fun but exhausting.

We are planning a move in the spring, which means trying to get the current home ready to go--ugh. My kitchen has spent several weeks torn apart and we--I mean, Joe--are slowly piecing it back together. I encouraged Joe to buy a fancy new miter saw in hopes that it would encourage him to put the trim up. As I type up this post, he's reading the directions. Mission accomplished (I think)!

I will be slowly getting back to posting deals over the next week or so. Stay tuned :)

Garnier Fructis Review & Coupon For $1.25 Off!!

Alright, folks. It's time for my latest completely unbiased review of a product I received for free to sample from BzzAgent :) Today, it's Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. I'm not gonna lie, I was really excited to get this one. My hair is naturally curly and without hair product intervention is a toss up between a mad scientist and a person who just stuck their finger in an electrical socket. Enough said.

Right off the bat, these bottles were pretty. Whoever designed them deserves a trophy. When I opened the bottle the smell was simply delicious. I had several comments on my yummy smelling hair the first time I tried it. The shampoo was light and didn't get super soapy (which I appreciate). The conditioner was thick and made my hair feel softer almost instantly. It was easier to brush when I hopped out of the shower, too. My hair was most certainly silky and laid better than with other products I've tried. Less in the fly-away department is always a plus in my book.

The only downfall to this shampoo and conditioner was that it did make my hair get greasy and heavy quicker than other products I've used. I doubt that this will be a widespread problem, though, because my hair is super thick and heavy to begin with :-/

Overall, it gets an A in my book. I would definitely use this when humidity comes in to play. And it's not overly expensive, either. Coming in between $3-$4 a bottle is in line with other products of this caliber, and I would be happy to spend it. As a special treat you can print this coupon for $1.25 off any shampoo, conditioner or styler.

Check out more info about Garnier here!!

Sleep Number Info and Review

Guess what I got in the mail yesterday??? That's right, my $129.99 Sleep Number Coolfit Foam Pillow that I got for FREE courtesy of Smiley360 and Sleep Number!!

I have been a member of Smiley360  for about a year and have gotten several great opportunities to spread the word about different items like Pam Cooking Spray, Children's Advil and Redbox. This "mission" was to visit a Sleep Number Retail Store, try out the beds and receive my "sleep number" and voila! An AWESOME pillow was delivered to my doorstep.

I must admit, this pillow is dreamy (no pun intended--ok, maybe it was)! It is just as amazing as they say it is. Their beds are pretty amazing, too. We honestly tossed around the idea of purchasing one but decided against it since we are trying to save every free penny for a new house. Sorry Sleep Number, those silly dreams of having a new house overpowered our desire to have an amazing nights sleep. And lets face it: I am a Mom. Even with an awesome bed the chances of a good nights sleep is a dream all its own.

If you are in the market for a new mattress check out some more info here.
