Midday Coffee: Nielsen Homescan Panel

The Nielsen Homescan Panel is a consumer panel that measures consumer attitudes and behavior. The information gathered is used to help manufacturers and retailers make decisions on what products to develop or improve. As I understand it, when you join, you agree to scan everything you buy so that your purchases can be tracked - if you have the time and inclination to do that, it seems like an easy way to bring in extras to your home. You'll earn points that are redeemable for name-brand merchandise, including electronics equipment, jewelry, household items, and toys, and sweepstakes entries. You can read one testimonial from a Freebies 4 Mom reader here. Links via Escalate Media Affiliate Network

Common Sense with Money reports that there's a mid-week circular this week at Walgreens, with even more free items. Unfortunately, I didn't see any sign of the ad at the store this morning, the shelves weren't tagged with the new deals, and the ad's not online either. So the ad may be regional, or maybe I just need to find a new favorite store.

Just Bento has a fascinating recipe for a frittata made in a rice cooker (!).

If you're planning ahead, Sunday Coupon Preview indicates that there won't be any coupon inserts this weekend because of the holiday, but the P&G site states there will be a P&G insert on Sunday. I'm going with the P&G site, and will expect to find a solitary insert in Sunday's paper.

Ralphs 6/30 - 7/6/10

Note: This summary of deals is based on the ad I get in Los Angeles, where Ralphs stores double coupons up to $1 (one like coupon per transaction). I don't list all of the deals, only the good ones. If I missed any, please let us all know in the comments. You'll need a Ralphs Rewards card to get most of these deals, so I use the Rewards card price in this post and assume you have your card scanned with each transaction. In addition to the coupons listed, you can also add electronic coupons to your Ralphs Rewards card at these sites: Shortcuts.com, Cellfire.com, Softcoin and Upromise. If you give Ralphs your email address, they may also send you emails with e-coupons that are exclusive to your card. And if you bring reuseable bags, Ralphs will give you 5 Rewards points for each bag used (though you may need to remind the cashier).

There's a coupon for a $25 credit when you transfer a prescription on the second-to-last page. It doesn't expire until 7/31, so don't forget to clip it if there's a chance you'll need it.

Two Tips to Save You Lots of Time in LA

Here are a couple of tips that you won’t use frequently, but could save you hours when you need them. The links are specific to Los Angeles and California, but you should look for similar opportunities in your area if you’re not local.

Tip #1: Make an appointment when you have to go to the DMV. I have done this twice now, and it just amazes me to see the people standing in a line that goes out the door and around the building when I can just walk in and be done with my business in fifteen minutes because I had an appointment. It’s easy to make an appointment online here.

Tip #2: Do your juror orientation online. This is a relatively new development, but if you are called into jury duty in Los Angeles County, you should be given the option of completing the orientation by watching online videos. It can delay the time you need to report to the courthouse by two hours or so (e.g., from 7:15 to 9:30). The training video did crash once and had to be restarted from the beginning. You’ll have to answer some questions during the training, but it’ll tell you the correct answer if you get one wrong. The certificate that you have to print is multiple pages, but you should only need the first page for proof of completion. You can learn more about online orientation here (click on the orientation link on the left).

I thought about adding a Tip #3: Check traffic maps before you leave for your destination. But in all honesty, the maps have never been particularly useful. I have found Sigalert.com to be far more accurate than Google Maps, but still takes some time to update. Unfortunately, the best advice when it comes to dealing with LA traffic is still: "Leave early."

Morning Coffee: A heartwarming story to start the day

This is my favorite kind of story, proof that hard work and faith lead to success. 107 boys from Chicago’s poorest, toughest neighborhoods beat the odds, graduated from high school, and are headed off to college.

Facebook "likers" of Trident can print three coupons: 50 cents/1 Trident White, $1/2 Trident Single Packs, and $1/2 Trident Layers. (Via Moms Need to Know.)

Through tomorrow, you can get 20% cash back on purchases from GAP when you shop through Ebates. Their summer sale is going on right now, and they offer $7 flat rate shipping every day. One thing I've noticed is that the size selection is greater online, so for example if you're short like me, you'll find petite sizes that you probably won't see in store. To learn more about Ebates, read my original review. If you sign up through my referral link, we'll both get a bonus when you make a $20 purchase within 90 days!

Get a printable coupon for $1/1 Expo Washable Markers. I'm wondering if these will be included in the back to school sales that should be starting in the next few weeks.

Wild for Wags explains how you can get Pilot G2 Pens for 99 cents at Walgreens using the coupon you get for signing up with Pilot Pens here.

My girlfriends and I were just talking about having a moms night out at PF Chang's this week, so I was happy to see this offer: submit your email address, and PF Chang's will send you a coupon for a free lettuce wraps when you buy an entree. The coupon expires 7/31, so you have plenty of time to plan your own moms night out :)

Recipe: Gluten-Free Tempura Batter & Tempura Sauce

A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of watching my friend R. stare down our friend Z. until Z. ate her sweet potato tempura. R. has celiac disease, meaning gluten does nasty things to her digestive tract, so she hadn't had tempura in over three years. And that day, Z. kept talking instead of eating until R. finally demanded, "Can you please eat that sweet potato?!"

So, knowing that rice flour is often used in tempura batter, I offered to make R. lots of gluten-free sweet-potato tempura. The batter is fairly thin, but I prefer it that way. It was marvelously crunchy, and R. was thrilled.

Gluten-Free Tempura Batter (adapted from Cooking Light)

2 cups rice flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups cold carbonated water

Combine the dry ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl. Add the carbonated water and whisk until smooth.

The batter was the right amount to make tempura for six people. Use whatever vegetable or protein you like. I've had steak tempura before (the meat was about a 1-inch cube), as well as banana tempura with chocolate sauce for dessert. For this meal, I cooked sweet potato, red pepper, zucchini, broccoli and eggplant.

I made the following sauce following a recipe in a Japanese cookbook my mom got me:

Tempura Sauce

1 cup dashi (bonito flake stock)
3 tablespoons mirin (sweet rice wine)
4 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat through.

If you use gluten-free dashi and gluten-free soy sauce, your entire meal will be gluten-free.

A word about cooking temperature: my Japanese cookbook recommended a lower temp for the vegetables, about 320 degrees. Cooking Light recommends 380. I found 360-ish to work well for this batter, and after draining the tempura on paper towels, it wasn't greasy at all.

Morning Coffee: New coupons at RedPlum

RedplumThere are some new coupons at RedPlum.com, including $1/1 Q-Tips cotton swabs (170-ct or larger) - I've never seen such a high value coupon for Q-Tips! I printed mine yesterday and they expire 7/27. Common Sense with Money reports that you can get them cheap at Target and Walmart with this coupon. There's also a coupon for $1/1 Kellogg's Cinnabon cereal, which looks like a new product to complement their Cinnabon bars. Links via Logical Media

Wild for Wags has a list of the July Register Rewards deals at Walgreens.

My Good Cents explains how you can get 250 address labels for $1 shipped. The code worked great for me.

Today's Ebates Daily Double store is GAP, which is giving a whopping 20% cash back (instead of the usual 2%). Their summer sale is going on right now - you can get up to 40% off in all departments, including men's, women's, children's, and maternity. They offer flat rate $7 shipping. To learn more about Ebates, read my original review. If you sign up through my referral link, we'll both get a bonus when you make your first purchase within 30 days!

One of this week's Walgreens deals is Reach dental floss, which is 99 cents with the in-ad coupon. I'd forgotten that I'd received several Catalina coupons at Walgreens for $1/1 any Reach floss that can be used to get free floss, so I wanted to remind you to check your coupon stash because this is the perfect time to use these. Hand over the Catalina coupon first, then the in-ad coupon to avoid any beeps.

Morning Coffee: Lots of recalls

The CPSC issued a bunch more recalls for drop side cribs on Thursday. I'll have a full post about those later this weekend, but in the meantime, if you're in the market for a crib, avoid the drop-sides since there's too good a chance it'll end up being recalled later. And I say that reluctantly, because I'm short and I loved our drop-side crib - it was on the expensive side, but well-made and very quiet except for the click to let you know the side had locked in place. (On the other hand, the drop-side on our cheap Jardine crib, which was eventually recalled, was noisy whenever it was moved.) There were also a couple of other recalls on Thursday, and I'll have those for you later too.

Yesterday, Kellogg's recalled selected packages of Corn Pops, Honey Smacks, Froot Loops and Apple Jacks cereals because the packaging is producing an odor and taste that's making people sick. Click through to Kellogg's Consumer Alert site for info on which packages are included in the recall.

Also yesterday, P&G recalled some bottles of Scope because the cap is not child-proof. There's nothing wrong with the product inside, but they failed to note on the bottle that it is not for households with young children. Consumers can discard the affected bottle and contact P&G at 1-877-340-8825 for a coupon or refund. Consumers who wish to continue to use the product should do so as directed, taking extra care to keep it out of the reach of children.

Get a printable coupon for 50 cents/1 Skinny Cow Cup.

Get two $2.50 off Luvs coupons when you register or update your account at LuvsDiapers.com.

Mommy Snacks has a list of the coupons in the July coupon book at Walgreens.

Review: Sea World San Diego

We went to Sea World in San Diego for the first time a couple of weeks ago. The boys had a great time, and the animal performances are truly amazing. Everyone’s favorite part was the Sea Lions Live show, in which two sea lions and an otter do scenes from popular TV shows. I left wanting a small otter to take home as a pet. The host of that show was the most entertaining part of the day, and before the show began, it was fun trying to identify the TV theme song before he acted it out.

We saw three other shows, Shamu Live, Blue Horizons, and Pets Rule. Predictably, Shamu Live has killer whales – and it just blows my mind that these enormous creatures can lift their bodies out of the water the way they do. Unfortunately, the "story" element of the show – involving some unclear theme of "believe" – detracts, rather than adds, to the enjoyment. And since the story involved a carved wooden whale tail, as we left the stadium, there was someone hawking whale tail necklaces to hit us over the head with the commercialism.

Blue Horizons primarily features dolphins but also has pilot whales and beautiful birds. However, here too, there’s a ridiculous story that just gets in the way of the entertainment. In fact, they needed an emcee to describe the premise before the show started: a "young girl" dreams of interacting with dolphins and birds, and her dreams come true when she meets the dolphin god Delphis and the bird goddess Aurora. The "young" girl looked to be at least 30, so that was disconcerting. Delphis turned out to be a trainer whose gray wetsuit had the outline of a dolphin tail. Aurora and her bird trainers were not-quite-spectacular Cirque de Soleis style performers. There were also high divers looked like they’d reached their pinnacle in college - they were good, but not great, and one of them hit the water face first, causing me to cringe.

You are allowed to enter the stadiums 30 minutes before showtimes, but for the most part, you’re then stuck sitting there with the kids with nothing to do. It’s not that big a deal for adults or older kids, but I recommend being prepared with a distraction with younger kids. We had snacks while waiting, which worked out because of the time between shows.

Speaking of food, we ate lunch at the Calypso Bay Smokehouse, which was about what you’d expect from an amusement park restaurant: marginally edible and overpriced. Exercise caution if you order a large soda, because they don’t provide lids unless you spring for a souvenir cup – I ended up with soda on my plate, though it fortunately landed in an unoccupied compartment.

Although the signs outside the park say no outside food or water, we clearly had bottled water and snacks in our backpacks when they were inspected at the gate and were allowed to bring them in. That helped keep costs down, since of course, everything is outrageously expensive inside the park. I was particularly shocked by the cold soda in reusable plastic bottles that were being sold before the shows for $8.75.

There are a few rides at Sea World, but my boys didn’t meet the height requirement for most of them. For younger kids, the Sesame Street-themed rides in the Sesame Street Bay of Play area are great. Active kids of all ages will enjoy the climbing structure that’s in the same area.

Right now, Sea World has a deal where you get a child’s ticket for just $5 when you buy an adult’s ticket. Regular admission is $69 for ages 10 and up and $59 for ages 3 through 9 (ages 2 and under get in free), so the $5 deal is awesome.

Parking note: We arrived shortly after the park opened and declined the upgrade to VIP parking for an additional $5. After we parked, we were surprised by how close we were to the park (a world of difference from Disneyland), so I think you would want to pay for preferred parking only in very exceptional circumstances.

Morning Coffee: I was wrong!

Boy, was I wrong yesterday when I predicted the Isner-Mahut tennis match would end quickly after resumption. Instead, it went another hour and was incredibly exciting. I was able to watch the match on ESPN3.com, which streamed pretty smoothly.

My CVS plan this week: Multiple vs. Single Transactions

I really miss the days when there was always a $/$$ coupon for CVS. I used to go a couple of times per week, and now I go a couple of times per month. I’m planning to stop by this week because I want to pick up the store brand ibuprofen that’s 99 cents after ECBs. I have $5 in ECBs, and a gift card that I got for transferring a prescription. Because of the gift card, I’m not that concerned about minimizing my out of pocket expenses – I’d rather do one transaction with a larger out of pocket cost than bother with multiple transactions. I’ll just leave with more ECBs instead of rolling them to keep costs down. Here’s my plan:

1 Colgate Total Toothpaste $2.77 (apparently a regional price since I see $2.99 on most blogs)
2 Power Bar Pure & Simple 99 cents each
1 CVS Ibuprofen $3.99

- $1/1 Colgate Total from 6/6 SS
- $5 ECB

Pay: $2.74 + tax
Receive: $2 ECB for Colgate + $1.98 ECB for Power Bar + $3 ECB for ibuprofen


If I wanted to break these items up into multiple transactions to minimize my out of pocket expenses, I would do this:

Transaction #1:
2 Power Bar Pure & Simple 99 cents each
1 CVS Ibuprofen $3.99

- $5 ECB

Pay: 97 cents + tax
Receive: $1.98 ECB for Power Bar + $3 ECB for ibuprofen


Transaction #2:
1 Colgate Total Toothpaste $2.77 (regional price apparently)
1 filler (because my total would be less than the value of the ECB)- usually there’s small candy at the register for 33 cents

- $1/1 Colgate Total from 6/6 SS
- $1.98 ECB from previous transaction

Pay: 12 cents + tax
Receive: $2 ECB from previous transaction


Doing multiple transactions saves me $1.65 in out of pocket expenses, though I walk away with $1.98 less in ECBs. I could also ask the cashier to adjust the ECB down to $1.77 in the second transaction, rather than buy a filler if I don’t want it. I’d "lose" 21 cents but sometimes that’s better than paying 12 cents for something you don’t want.

Morning Coffee: Great sports day

Yesterday was amazing - I caught a replay of the US-Algeria soccer match on ESPN, and got to see Landon Donovan's goal in the 91st minute. Even though I knew what was going to happen, it was still so exciting. And then there's the marathon Wimbledon match that resumes in about an hour. The odds seem awfully good that it will be over less than five minutes after resuming. I love great sports - almost as much as I love great deals :)
