Review & Giveaway: $50 Red Envelope Gift Code

Father's Day is coming up, and Red Envelope wants you to know that they have creative gifts for Dad. They have quite a few gifts under $50, and my favorite is the beer holster, which is exactly what it sounds like - a belt with a holster for beer, so that you can keep your hands free and still have your beer close at hand. It made me laugh out loud when I saw it, but then I realized that I actually do know some dads who would probably love this!

I was given the opportunity to review the car trunk organizer, which is now in the trunk of my car. It seems sturdy and well-made, and I love how well it folds up when not in use. It will be fabulous for corralling smaller items, like books, jackets, and reusable bags. Plus, the cooler is handy for those times when I want to make a quick stop after I've gone to the market. I do wish the compartments were a little bigger, but overall, I'm happy to have it.

WIN IT!

Red Envelope wants to give one lucky CFO reader a $50 Red Envelope gift code. To enter, check out their Father's Day gifts and more, then fill out the form below and tell me what you would order if you win (don't worry, you can always change your mind). Email and RSS subscribers may need to click through to the blog in order to see the form. If you're having trouble with your entry, you can go directly to the published form. This entry must be completed in order for your subsequent entries to be counted.

For a second entry, "like" Red Envelope on Facebook. Then fill out the form to let me know you've done so.

For a third entry, "like" Chief Family Officer on Facebook. Then fill out the form with your Facebook identity.

For a fourth entry, subscribe to CFO via RSS or email and fill out the form again to let me know you've done so. You'll get the latest on CFO delivered right to your favorite feed aggregator or inbox (your subscription must be confirmed). If you're already a subscriber, just fill out the form to let me know (and thanks!).

For a fifth entry, follow me on Twitter and tweet about the giveaway. Then fill out the form to let me know you've done so (include the link to your update).

For a sixth entry, blog about the giveaway on your own blog. Then let me know about it by filling out the form again with the link to your post.

You can enter up to six times (one for each type), and you must complete the form once per entry. (To see the form again once you've completed it, just refresh the page.) Only one entry of each type per email address will be counted. I'll select the winner using Random.org and announce them here on CFO as well as contact them by email. Winner must respond within 24 hours, otherwise their prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected. Additionally, these guidelines apply to all giveaways here at CFO.

The giveaway ends at 9 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, June 7, 2011. Good luck!

Menu Plan Monday: Lots of baking ahead


I'm so excited because this week is supposed to bring us cooler weather, and I actually don't have a jam-packed schedule for once, so I can get some baking done. I'm thinking banana muffins, blueberry-lemon coffee cake (I still haven't gotten around to making it), cereal bars, and sandwich bread. I'd love to make more but if I do more than this, I'll have to do it over two days - which I might. ;) We'll be eating out several times this week - not expensive meals, though, and it can't be helped!

Monday - Chicken enchiladas, salad

Tuesday - Meatloaf burgers, sweet potato fries

Wednesday - Dinner out

Thursday - Pizza using artisan bread dough (which, after some experimentation, has come to be my favorite pizza dough), salad

Friday - Spaghetti with cabbage and breadcrumbs (Martha Stewart Living recipe that I can't find online), fruit salad

Saturday - Dinner out (actually, it's a pot luck - I'm bringing a pasta salad and dessert)

Sunday - Dinner out

Morning Coffee: Thank you for our freedom!

I always tell my boys that we're lucky to live in America, where we have so much freedom - and it's thanks to those whom we remember on Memorial Day. Their sacrifices - and the sacrifices of all veterans, and all military families - allow us to speak our mind, worship in the way that is most meaningful to us, and succeed and fail of our own accord. THANK YOU!

Totally Target reports that you can get cheap Banana Boat and Hawaiian Tropic products at Target this week.

Speaking of Target, there are a few new printable Target coupons that can be stacked with manufacturer's coupons, including $1/2 Seattle's Best coffee (and there's a printable manufacturer's coupon for $1/1 Seattle's Best coffee at Coupons.com).

Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 5/29 - 6/4/11

You'll find a list of this week's Walgreens 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 Walgreens. In these transactions, I assume that you do not have any Register Rewards to start with.

Transaction #1:
BUY:
2 Colgate MaxClean toothpaste @ $2.50 each

USE:
$0.75/1 Colgate Toothpaste 6/5/2011 Smart Source
$1/1 Colgate MaxClean Toothpaste May 2011 All You

Pay: $3.25 + tax
Receive: $2 RR

Transaction #2:
BUY:
1 Icy Hot Naturals Pain Relief Cream @ $1
1 Illy Coffee, Caffe 6.8 oz, Latte Macchiato or Cappuccino @ $2

USE:
$1/1 Icy Hot & Other Products 5/1/2011 Smart Source

Transaction #3:

1 BC or Goody’s Headache Relief Powders @ $1.50
1 Listerine Pocketpaks, 72 ct @ $2.99
1 Royal Gelatin @ $0.20 with in-ad coupon

in-ad coupon for Royal Gelatin
$1 RR from previous transaction
$2 RR from previous transaction

Pay: $0.99 + tax
Receive: $1.50 RR for BC/Goody's + $2 RR for Listerine

At this point, you've paid $4.24 + tax for 2 tubes of toothpaste, pain relief cream, a coffee, pain reliever, and breath strips - you'd pay that just for the toothpaste at Target. Plus, you have $3.50 in Register Rewards to roll next week or use on sale items this week, like Puffs tissue ($0.99 with in-ad coupon) or Kellogg's cereal ($1.99).

Rite Aid Starter Transactions: 5/29 - 6/4/11

You'll find a list of this week's Rite Aid 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 Rite Aid.

Be sure to sign up for a Wellness+ card - you'll need it for the following deals (get it in store instead of online so they give you the card right away). You may also need to register for Rite Aid Video Values to get some of the coupons listed below.

Transaction #1:
BUY:
1 Renpure Organics Shampoo or Conditioner (8-13.5 oz.), $4.99

Pay: $4.99 + tax
Receive: $4.99 +UP reward

$1/1 Coppertone Product May or June Video Values printable
$4.99 +UP reward from previous transaction

Pay: $2 + tax
Receive: $2 +UP reward

At this point, you've spent $6.99 + tax for 2 bottles of organic shampoo and/or conditioner and a bottle of sunscreen. That's about what you'd spend just for the sunscreen at Target. Plus, you have $2 to roll next week or to spend on sale items this week, like Kellogg's cereal ($1.88) or Crisco oil ($2.99).

Vons/Pavilions matchups (5/29/11 weekend insert)

I don't normally do Vons/Pavilions match ups because there are so many blogs that do match ups for them or Safeway (which usually has the same sales, if not the same coupon doubling policies). But today's newspaper (5/29/11) has an insert full of Super Coupons that make for great deals and I didn't want you to miss out on them.

Vons/Pavilions will double one like coupon per transaction, up to $1. Super Coupons (which are found in-ad) are store coupons that can be stacked with manufacturer's coupons for extra savings. Usually Super Coupons require a minimum $10 purchase, but I don't see that language on most of the coupons in today's insert - just the one for $2 off Rancher's Reserve Beef, which requires a minimum $15 purchase. The minimum purchase should be before manufacturer's coupons are deducted according to paragraph 12 of the official coupon policy.

I was running low on milk so I just got back from a quick run and was surprised to see a stack of the Sunday inserts next to the stack of weekly ads at the customer service counter. They usually don't have the weekend inserts at my store, so that was a pleasant surprise.

Some of the Super Coupons are valid through tomorrow only. Others are valid through next Saturday (6/11). I've listed some coupons in the match ups that are no longer available; I only know about them because they're still in my coupon wallet and figured some of you might have them too. I've listed what I think are the best deals; for full Vons match ups, check out Save At Home Mommy.

Sunday & Monday (5/29-5/30 only) Deals

Safeway Select Artisan Garlic Breads $0.99 with in-ad coupon

CVS Starter Scenarios: 5/29 - 6/4/11

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). You may also want to pick up a CVS green bag tag to earn ECBs for using reusable bags.

Transaction #1:
BUY:
1 Preparation H Wipes, 10 ct - $3.99
2 Mars Chocolate Singles, 1.08 - 2.15 oz - $0.50 each

USE:
$2/1 Preparation H printable

Pay: $2.99 + tax
Receive: $2 ECB for Preparation H + $1 ECB for Mars

Transaction #2:
BUY:
1 Neutrogena sunscreen - $7.88

USE:
$2/1 Neutrogena Suncare Product printable
$2 + $1 ECB from previous transaction

Pay: $2.88 + tax

In sum, you've spent $5.87 for Neutrogena sunscreen, 2 candy bars, and Preparation H. You'd pay more than that just for the sunscreen at Target. This is a good example of how buying something you don't need like the Preparation H can help you save money on other things you do - you "make" $2 on Preparation H, which you then use to buy the sunscreen for less.

Midmorning Coffee: Print those coupons before they're gone

Coupons.comMay is coming to a close, which means some of the coupons available at Coupons.com won't be available in a couple of days. Some will hopefully return, but some probably won't so it's best to print them while they're still available.

Amazon is currently offering the white 4GB Flip UltraHD Video Camera for just $78.99. It's reduced from a list price of $99 and gets 4 out of 5 stars in 71 reviews.

Keep an eye on your email - I had an offer from Shutterfly for a free set of address labels with a $1+ purchase (offer expires tomorrow).

As I mentioned a while back, we got a dwarf Meyer lemon tree, and I'm so excited because there are now tiny little lemons growing.

Morning Coffee: What are you doing this weekend?

It's a holiday weekend here in the U.S., but we don't have any exciting plans - unless you think looking at shower doors for our upcoming bathroom remodel is exciting, LOL!

There's still time to get a $30 Totsy voucher for just $15 from daily deal site Plum District. Totsy is a flash sales site that's having a Memorial Day blowout right now, with deals on adorable sandals, swimsuits, toys (including Melissa & Doug!) and more. You get free shipping on your first order (if placed within 30 days), and if you don't see anything you'd like right now, you have two months to spend your voucher. I have to admit, this was the deal that finally got me to join Totsy - I couldn't resist the discount on top of the discount! Thank you if you join(ed) Plum District or Totsy using my referral links!

RedplumEven though there are no coupon inserts this weekend, there are a few new/returning coupons at RedPlum, including $1.50/1 Cutter product, $2/1 Sevin product, and $2/1 Allegra. There may also be regional coupons for $1 off Clif bars and $0.50 off Ruffies, although those aren't showing for me.

Here's a hot deal I posted on Facebook last night that's hopefully still valid: Get 5 free Father's Day cards at Tiny Prints with code OKL5CARDSFREE. I had 5 cards sent to myself and my order was totally free (if you have them sent to the recipient, you'll pay just $0.44 for the stamp).

Through May 30, you can get Scene It? Movies 2 for iPhone and iPad for free at iTunes. (Via Common Sense with Money.)

Banana Boat is giving away 101 daily prizes (Banana Boat products and Visa gift cards) via Facebook and Twitter.

A couple of days ago, Rite Aid offered an exclusive printable coupon via Facebook that hit its print limit very quickly, and I've been informed that they are planning similar future offers so you may want to follow them on Facebook.

Get a free download of Martha Stewart's Summer Grilling Cookbook.

Giveaway: Kung Fu Panda 2 General Mills Prize Pack

Everybody's favorite fighting panda is back this spring in Kung Fu Panda 2, so spin fighter toys featuring Kung Fu Panda 2 characters including Po, Tigress, Shifu, Monkey, Lord Shen, Mantis, Crane and Viper can be found inside specially marked boxes of participating General Mills cereals.

To celebrate the new movie and toys, General Mills and Dreamworks want to give one lucky CFO reader a Kung Fu Panda 2 prize pack which includes one box of a participating Big G cereal, a Kung Fu Panda 2 spin fighter toy, and the original Kung Fu Panda movie on DVD.

To enter this giveaway, tell me your favorite (or your child's favorite) Kung Fu Panda character in the form below. Email and RSS subscribers may need to click through to the blog in order to see the form. If you're having trouble with your entry, you can go directly to the published form. This entry must be completed in order for your subsequent entries to be counted.

If you're already a subscriber, just fill out the form to let me know (and thanks!).

For a fourth entry, follow me on Twitter and tweet about the giveaway. Then fill out the form to let me know you've done so (include the link to your update).

For a fifth entry, blog about the giveaway on your own blog. Then let me know about it by filling out the form again with the link to your post.

You can enter up to five times (one for each type), and you must complete the form once per entry. (To see the form again once you've completed it, just refresh the page.) Only one entry of each type per email address will be counted. I'll select the winner using Random.org and announce them here on CFO as well as contact them by email. Winner must respond within 24 hours, otherwise their prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected. Additionally, these guidelines apply to all giveaways here at CFO.

The giveaway ends at 9 p.m. PDT on Friday, June 3, 2011, and is open to U.S. residents. Good luck!

Midmorning Coffee: It's Mega Swag Bucks Friday!

Search & WinI hope you were able to get a bunch of Swag codes during the extravaganza yesterday. As I mentioned over at Facebook, it was a great Swagbucks day since there were over 40 Swag Bucks available via code. That's one reason why Swagbucks is my favorite way to earn free money. Since today is Friday, you have an increased chance of winning big Swag Bucks. Plus, if you collect all four Memorial Day-themed Swag Bucks bills, you'll get a 20 Swag Bucks bonus. If you haven't started using Swagbucks yet, today is the last day to get a 50 Swag Buck bonus when you register, for a total of 80 to start (and you only need 450 to get a $5 Amazon certificate) - just use code MEMORIALDAY at registration. Thank you if you join(ed) Swagbucks using my referral link!

Coupons.comCoupons.com has a new coupon for $1/1 Kraft Deli Deluxe cheese, and they've also brought back the coupons for $1/1 Boulder Canyon potato chips, $1/1-lb+ Sara Lee deli meat, and $1/1 Bayer Extra Strength or Back & Body aspirin (which you might be able to use to get more free aspirin at Walgreens through tomorrow).

Daily deal site Plum District is offering a $30 Totsy voucher for just $15 today. Totsy is a "flash deals" site, meaning they offer steep discounts for a limited period of time, usually 2 to 3 days, and it looks like they are usually on higher-end brands. So with the Plum District voucher, it's like you're getting 50% off on top of the Totsy discount of up to 90% off. I couldn't resist and bought a voucher for myself! Limit one per household.

There's a new daily deal site called 8moms, which is currently offering an $8 credit when you use code PARENTING8 at registration. You can buy current deal ($10 for cute hair accessories) or hold onto it for a future deal. Thank you if you join using my referral link!

Amazon is offering Instant Video rentals for $1.99 through Memorial Day weekend - selection includes Tangled, Tron: Legacy (and the original Tron), The Proposal, and more. 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!

Amazon's Friday Sale is all about coffee today, and especially about K-cups.

Amazon's free Android app of the day is Abduction 2, a game that gets 3 out 5 stars in 19 reviews.

Amazon now offers Mac game downloads, and to celebrate, you can now get Airport Mania: First Flight for free ($6.99 value). I've played a version of this game on my Droid and I absolutely love it - it's so much fun.

Get a printable coupon for $0.75/1 Solo cups, plates, or bowls. (Via Printable Coupons and Deals.)

Reminder: Saturday is the last day to watch Rite Aid's May Video Values. The coupons you've earned by watching will be available to print for another month, but you need watch the videos by Saturday.

Morning Coffee: Lots of Ralphs updates

Thank you to everyone who's left comments with updates about the current Ralphs deals - you can get the additional info here. I've also updated this week's match ups with a new printable Voskos coupon so you can get more free yogurt, and posted a quick update on Facebook yesterday to say that the Ocean Spray blueberry is on sale while the King's Hawaiian mini sub rolls are not. I totally forgot to check the Huggies prices, but will try to get back to the store this weekend.

Coupons.comCoupons.com has a new high-value coupon for $3/2 Playtex Gentle Glide tampons - you can use two at Walgreens this week to get 4 36-count boxes for $2.99 each after Register Reward. I'm also seeing reports that the $1/1 Lunchables with Fruit coupon may have reset, but it hasn't for me - I don't even see it anymore.

For the Mommas has some clarifications - including helpful examples - about the changes to Rite Aid's coupon policy and how they affect Buy One, Get One Free sales.

ZyrtecThe printable coupon for $2 off Zyrtec is still available, but might not be next month. Plus, I'm seeing reports that you may be offered a free sample instead of the coupon.

Get a printable coupon for $2/1 Cutter product. (Via Printable Coupons and Deals.)

My Good Cents reports that Lane Bryant has sent out $15 off $15 purchase coupons via snail mail.

Facebook likers of Corner Bakery Cafe who submit a "fan entry" stating why you are a fan can get a printable coupon for a free cookie, brownie, bar, whoopie pie or baby bundt cake when you buy an entree. (Via Common Sense with Money.)

Get a free donut at Krispy Kreme on June 3, which is National Donut Day.

Get a printable coupon for $1/1 Wholly product.

Get 5 free 5x7 photo cards from Shutterfly when you use code DADCARD. You'll have to pay shipping, which should be $5.99 (when sent to you and not separate recipients).

Money Saving Mom has a recipe for homemade frappucinos.

Life as Mom discusses celebrating the end of the school year, and I really love the idea of having the kids write about "Who I Am" at the beginning and end of the year.
