Morning Coffee: New month = new coupons

Coupons.comI've noticed that Coupons.com doesn't wait for a new month to start before releasing new coupons, so there's about a one week period before and after the first of the month when there are new coupons practically every day. Today, you can find coupons for $1/1 Velveeta Spicy Buffalo Loaf, $1/1 Boulder Canyon potato chips, and $0.75/1 Jimmy D's breakfast product. Some areas are also reportedly Libby's coupons.

Amazon's Gold Box deal of the day is a set of cultured freshwater pearls, including necklace, bracelet and earrings for just $37.99. I'm sure it's a Mother's Day sale, but this would actually be a fabulous graduation gift - especially for a college student about to enter the workforce. Disclosure: I'm an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

Speaking of gifts, Amazon is having a one-day sale on Seventeen magazine - you can get a one-year subscription for just $5, which makes it a great gift for teens. It does come with auto-renewal, but that's easy to cancel by going to the "Your Account" page (the link's at the top right of every page on Amazon) and then "Manage Magazine Subscriptions."

Amazon's free MP3 of the day is The Road by Emmylou Harris.

The free PC game download of the day is Granny in Paradise.

Facebook likers of daily deal site 1 Sale A Day can get a free SpeakEasy Mobile Headset. (Via Common Sense with Money.)

Get a coupon for free Cottonelle Moist Wipes when you send the offer to a friend.

Facebook likers of Nescafe can get a free sample of Nescafe Taster's Choice.

Facebook likers of Playtex can request a free sample of Playtex Sport Tampons.

Facebook likers of Pro Plan can get a coupon for free Pro Plan dog treats. (Via The Freebie Blogger.)

Baking Day Update

I ended the day with quite a haul for the freezer:

Blueberry Muffins, using a yogurt adaptation of this Joy of Cooking recipe

Hanalei Plantation Banana Bread, baked in a 13x9 pan instead of loaf pans because I love, love, love the crusty top and more surface area = more top

Chocolate Snack Cake, which I made once years ago and liked, but am not so crazy about this time

Cereal Bars, using Passion Fruit Jelly

Sandwich Bread (2 loaves), but the dough didn't rise as high as it should have so I'm dissatisfied

Brownies, already given away

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Dough, chilling in the fridge overnight to be frozen in balls tomorrow; I can bake these six to eight at a time in the toaster oven so I try to keep some on hand in the freezer at all times, since I don't have to worry about the oven heating up the whole house to bake these

I ran out of blueberries, so I didn't get a chance to make Blueberry Lemon Coffee Cake - I'm putting it on my list for my next baking day, since I'm sure the kids will love it. Also on my list for next time are cinnamon rolls and pop tarts. Brandy suggested a sweet cornbread, known to her son as "corncake," and I think my kids will go along with that too :)

Baking Day

When the weather heats up, my oven use is often determined by the temperature, and today happens to be the best day for at least a week for baking. So my kitchen is getting a workout!

I just pulled a batch of brownies out of the oven, and I've got some cereal bars in there right now. And I've got two loaves of sandwich bread going through their final rise.

I'm also planning on baking some blueberry muffins, banana bread, blueberry coffee cake, and chocolate snack cake, and freezing some cookie dough. Cereal deals have been a little scarce lately, so I'm trying to stock the freezer with breakfast alternatives so I don't have to pay $1+ per box of cereal. I'm also trying to stock some after-school snacks so the kids will stop pouting about their choices!

What's your favorite thing to bake and freeze?

Morning Coffee: It's Mega Swag Bucks Friday

Search & WinSwagbucks is by far my favorite way to earn free money, so I love Fridays, when there's an increased chance of winning big Swag Bucks. Plus, get one daily Swag Buck by taking the Daily Poll, and another daily Swag Buck for using their toolbar. Learn more about Swagbucks here. Thank you if you join(ed) Swagbucks using my referral link!

Coupons.comIt's the end of the month, so now's the time to print your coupons before they reset (and possibly disappear). Coupons.com also has some new Purina coupons.

Amazon's free MP3 of the day is Love Hurts by Roy Orbison.

Amazon is also offering free PC game downloads for the next week - today's free downloadable game is Burger Shop, which gets 4 1/2 out of 5 stars in 14 reviews and has a retail value of $6.99.

Moneywise Moms reports that you can get free Hallmark cards at Vons, other Safeway stores, and Giant.

Common Sense with Money reports that you might be able to get 15 bags of chips for free after ECB at CVS.

Get a printable coupon for $1/1 Frosted Mini Wheats Touch of Fruit. (Via Fabulessly Frugal.)

CVS is offering a free $5 e-gift card when you buy a $25 e-gift card. This is a great way to stretch your CVS dollars, but I should caution that when I tried to use an e-gift card at the end of last year, the store had no clue how to let me use it and I ended up having to pay with a credit card and email CVS for a refund on the gift card since I couldn't use it in-store. Hopefully stores have gotten used to them by now and you won't have any trouble using these!

Facebook likers of Better Oats can get a printable coupon for $1/1 Better Oats Oatmeal (excluding Mom's Best).

Get a preview of next week's Walgreens deals.

Facebook likers of Aerie can get a printable coupon for $10 off a $10 purchase (expires 5/1).

This is just a reminder that there are only 24 hours left to enter the $50 American Express gift card giveaway - don't forget that there will be FIVE winners!

Morning Coffee: Three coupon inserts this weekend

This week's Sunday newspaper should have at least three coupon inserts: a P&G, Smart Source, and Red Plum. It looks like there might be a second Smart Source insert also. I'll be happy to have the Nestle PureLife water coupon, since I'm trying to stash more water for our earthquake/emergency kit - the coupon should help me get to my target price of $2.50 or less before CRV.

Today at 8 a.m. PDT, daily deal site Rue La La will have deals on American Girl items, including mini dolls, doll and girl outfits, and accessories.

Christian Clippers has this week's Stater Bros. match ups.

Ralphs: 4/27 - 5/3/11

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. I find the electronic coupons to be unreliable when it comes to stacking them with paper coupons, so I assume they do not stack in the scenarios below. I don't print every coupon listed, so please verify amounts and quantities listed. 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).

At least some stores in LA County are still doubling multiple like coupons, including my own store. But until this seems to be a permanent state of affairs, I'm going to assume that only one like coupon will double per transaction.

Morning Coffee: Hot deal on Graco Nautilus

Amazon has the Graco Nautilus in the Matrix pattern for just $137.98 right now. I need a new Nautilus before our Britax Marathon expires in August, so I've been tracking these prices and I'm happy to see a price lower than the $143.99 sale price at Babies R Us. I just need to run out to the market to get an Amazon gift card for the 5% rebate I get through my credit card on grocery purchases, so I'm crossing my fingers that the price doesn't do one of Amazon's notorious fluctuations before I get home! (I reviewed the Nautilus here, and am working on a second review comparing it to the Britax Frontier 85 - but obviously, I'm opting for another Nautilus over a second Frontier!)

Coupons.comCoupons.com has some new coupons, including $0.75/3 Birds Eye Steamfresh, $3/1 Huggies diapers 60-ct+, $2/1 any Huggies diapers, and $1/1 Milk-Bone Healthy Favorites dog snacks. I'm also seeing reports that some areas are seeing coupons for Off products, Oscar Mayer, and Enfamil, but they're not showing for me.

Get 50 points at Recyclebank when you take the "Green Your Home Challenge" and visit the bathroom (click on the Earn tab and then scroll down to find the challenge).

RedplumOver at RedPlum, the $1/1 Voskos yogurt coupon is back for me. I'm excited because they often go sale for $1, so they're free after coupon.

Amazon has over 25,000 MP3 songs for $0.69 or less, and the selection includes popular (older) songs like The Climb by Miley Cyrus, Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts, Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye, That's the Way Love Goes by Janet Jackson, and more. There are also two songs by the cast of Glee - Big Ass Heart and Trouty Mouth.

Our Bathroom Remodel & Having An Emergency Fund

We've lived in our home for nearly ten years now, and we're about to embark on our first major remodel. We've had some work done, of course - you can't live in a thirty-year-old house and not have to make some repairs and changes. But overall, what we've done so far has been pretty minor: re-tiled the bathrooms, installed new toilets, removed the cottage cheese ceiling, etc.

This time, the work we're doing is apparently major enough to require inspection to make sure it meets construction codes. Although I hope I'm wrong about that since it'll cost more money.

And speaking of money, a project of this size obviously requires a good amount of it. I have to admit, I cringe every time I think about paying for the material we're buying and the work that's going to be done. I'm just not used to paying that kind of money for anything, and especially when it's not budgeted and planned for. It's one thing to pay the property tax bill twice a year, for example - it's big, but the money comes out of our Infrequent Bills Account, so mentally, it doesn't have the same impact that depleting our savings for this remodel will have.

But the remodel is necessary because there's some water damage in the bathroom and changes need to be made to prevent the same type of damage from happening again. We don't have the skills to do the remodel ourselves, nor do we have any confidence that we could acquire such skills. So we took some time finding a contractor through word of mouth, and we picked out new tile yesterday - and the prospect of having a bathroom that looks pretty is actually kind of exciting. :)

Every day, though, I'm thankful that we have enough savings to be able to pay for this remodel without destabilizing our financial position. We've worked really hard for financial peace of mind, and even though it pains me to pay for the remodel, the truth is that we can afford it. And that's because we live well below our means, and don't spend money unnecessarily.

I won't say it's easy, since there are definitely things I would like to have but don't think are the best use for our money. For example, rather than spend $300 on a new vacuum, I make do with what I have and keep trying to win one through blog giveaways. If only I could win a bathroom remodel instead!

Looking for a Microscope

We've gotten big into science around here, and I want to make the most of the boys' curiosity while we can since who knows how long this stage will last.

We've grown some alum crystals, colored celery to demonstrate capillary action, and are growing a container garden (we recently added some tomatoes, lettuce, strawberries and parsley to keep our lemon tree company).

Next on our list of projects are sugar crystals and salt crystals.

I thought it would be a good experience to compare the crystals' structures under a microscope, but I haven't touched a microscope since college. I know nothing about brand names, what to look for, or what's a good price to pay.

So before I buy this well-reviewed My First Lab Duo-Scope Microscope from Amazon, I wanted to ask for input. What should I be looking for in a kid's microscope, and what's a good price to pay? Thanks so much!

P.S. And thanks to this review at Baby Toolkit, I've added the book Science Fair Season: Twelve Kids, a Robot Named Scorch . . . and What It Takes to Win to my reading list.

Morning Coffee: Back to school

Spring Break is over, and it's back to our normal routine here. Since I didn't get to any drugstores yesterday, I'm hoping to get to at least one or two today. Plus I have to get to Vons to buy milk - they have the lowest price in town on organic gallons, and we are down to our last cupful.

RedplumRedPlum has a few new coupons, including $1/2 Heinz Homestyle Gravy and $1/1 Rhodes Warm N Serve Rolls.

Today's Groupon in Jacksonville, Florida is a $45 Body Shop voucher for just $20 (valid in-store only; value goes down to $40 after May 30). Learn more about Groupon (and thank you if you join(ed) Groupon using my referral link!)

There are Baby Lightning Deals today at Amazon - right now, there's an Infantino sorter for less than $14. Sorters are great toddler toys, and it's making me a little nostalgic :)

I've seen multiple reports that you can get free-after-rewards AA or AAA Duracell batteries this week at Staples, but I can't find anything about it online. You might be able to find more information in-store.

Common Sense with Money reports that you can get free-after-rewards Energizer batteries at Office Depot.

Vote in the Clorox "Cook Up a Mess" contest and get a printable coupon for $1/1 Clorox Clean-Up Cleaner. Print two and use them at Walgreens to get two for $0.50 each this week (you'll also need to use the $2/2 coupon in the April coupon booklet).

You can still get free Honest Tea + free reusable bags at Ralphs with the $1/1 printable coupon available at Recyclebank for 30 points.

Target has a printable coupon this week for $2/20 digital prints, which means you can get 20 4x6 prints for free (they're 10 cents each, so 20 would be $2). (Via Mojo Savings.)

Menu Plan Monday: Warming Up


Last week was nice and cool, but unfortunately with spring break, I never had a chance to bake. And this week, the weather is warming up - though it looks like today and Friday will be in the 70's, so I'll try to get some baking done today and at the end of the week. I really want to get some quick breads, muffins and pastries in the freezer for easy breakfasts and snacks. In the meantime, here's what's on tap for dinner:

Monday - Pasta bolognese, brioche artisan bread, salad

Tuesday - Ham & bean soup, biscuits

Wednesday - Steak, mashed potatoes, sauteed green beans

Thursday - Roasted Cauliflower and Sardine Pasta

Friday - Breakfast (pancakes or waffles, bacon, eggs, fruit)

Saturday - Leftovers

Sunday - Dinner out

If you're new to The Drugstore Game, these new starter transactions will help you get your feet wet and show you how The Drugstore Game can save you money on things you already buy. If you don't understand the transactions, read my Drugstore Game Primer, Common Sense with Money's FAQ (which has a handy explanation of acronyms), and my explanation of How to Play The Drugstore Game at Walgreens.

Transaction #1:
Buy 1 Luster White 7 Toothpaste @ $4.99

Use $1.50/1 Luster White 7 Product 4/3/2011 SS

And use 2 x $3/1 Splenda Sweetener Product 4/17/2011 SS (or $2/1 Splenda Sweetener Granulated with Fiber printable; if you use 2 x $3/1, the second coupon will beep and need to be adjusted down per store policy)

And use $4 RR from previous transaction

Pay: $0.68 + tax
Receive: $3 RR for Stayfree + $2.99 mail-in rebate form for Nexcare + $3 RR for Splenda

Keep the $3 RRs to roll next week, or use them to buy things you need that are on sale this week, like the cleaning products.

CVS Starter Scenarios: 4/24 - 4/30/11

You'll find a list of this week's CVS deals here.

If you're new to The Drugstore Game, these new starter transactions will help you get your feet wet and show you how The Drugstore Game can save you money on things you already buy. If you don't understand the transactions, read my Drugstore Game Primer, Common Sense with Money's FAQ (which has a handy explanation of acronyms), and my explanation of How to Play The Drugstore Game at CVS.

Be sure to sign up for a free CVS Extra Care card - you'll need it for the following deals (get it in store instead of online so they give you the card right away).

It's another slow week at CVS, but you can still get a couple of good deals on things you might need:

Transaction #1:
Buy 1 Blink Tears 0.5 oz or Gel Tears 0.34 oz - $7.99
Use $1/1 Blink Tears or Blink GelTears Lubricating Eye Drops 04/03/11 SS

And use $1/3 Kellogg's PopTart Pastries or Mini Crisps 03/06/11 RP
And use $7.99 ECB from previous transaction

Pay: $0.86 + tax

In sum, pay $7.85 + tax, and get eye drops, potato chips, deodorant, two razors, and three boxes of Pop Tarts. You'd pay that for just one full-price razor at Target! Plus, the second transaction is easily adjusted so you can eliminate whatever you don't want and buy something you do want. Check the weekly circular to see what's on sale.

Transaction #2:
Buy 2 Thermacare Patches (2-3 ct.) @ $6.99 each

Use 2 x $3/1 ThermaCare HeatWrap printable
And use $1/1 Thermacare RA printable

Pay: $3.98 + tax
Receive: $4 +UP for Thermacare

You can use the $4 +UP reward to roll next week, or use it right away to buy things you need like milk. Or, if all you want is the EOS shave cream, buy one and keep rolling the $2 +UP reward until you hit the limit of 4 - you'll end up paying a total of $5.96 + tax out of pocket, with a $2 +UP reward to spend after you buy the fourth one.

Happy Easter!

I'm skipping Morning Coffee today since I didn't find any deals worth sharing yesterday - if there are limited time deals today, I'll post them on Facebook. And starter transactions for the drugstores will post later today too.

In the meantime, I'm going to dye some eggs with the boys (we didn't have time the last few days), then they'll hunt for some plastic eggs, and we'll have a nice dinner with the extended family.

Have a wonderful day!

(And remember that some stores like Target and the mall are closed for the holiday - but I think the drugstores are open!)

Morning Coffee: No Coupon Inserts This Weekend

Because of Easter, there will be no coupon inserts in this weekend's newspaper. I try to use the time to organize my coupons :)

Amazon Mom members can get a pack of 504 Pampers ThickCare Wipes for just $9.79 with Subscribe & Save - that works out to $0.02 per wipe, which is a stock up price. I like these wipes a lot - they're great for wiping hands and faces. If you buy two of these packs at once, you'll extend your Amazon Mom Prime shipping benefits for another month if you haven't hit the 12-month max yet.

Bummer! In the forty minutes that I was serving the kids breakfast, the price has gone up!
