CFO Logo

Saturday, August 20, 2011

Reminder: Chief Family Officer is moving to Wordpress!

Here's a small preview of the new Chief Family Officer logo :) And this is just a reminder that you should be able to see the new logo in its entirety sometime later today after this site has been moved to its new home.

In the meantime, keep up with the latest deals and news and me on Facebook.

And remember, if you stop getting updates in your RSS feed or via email, you should visit Chief Family Officer to resubscribe - you'll see the options up at the top right of the page.

Thank you for reading CFO!

Big Changes Coming To Chief Family Officer!

I have been thinking for literally years now that I should move this site over to Wordpress. Blogger has been good and easy to use, but they've shut down some of my favorite sites without warning and they've shut down themselves unexpectedly a couple of times earlier this year.

So when Blogging with Amy ran a series on moving from Blogger to Wordpress, I read every word. And I was really struck by this paragraph in Part 2 on why one should make the move to Wordpress:
If [you] have seriously considered making a move to WordPress in the past. (If you have thought about it previously, chances are you’ll think about it again. It is definitely better to do it sooner rather than later.)
I knew Amy was right - I kept thinking about it, and I was going to keep thinking about it, so I might as well do it already.

And then Amy and Joy of Five J's Design offered a migration deal. It seemed like a sign. So I signed up.

And it's happening.

Tomorrow. (Yikes!)

What does that mean for you?

Hopefully (if all goes smoothly), bigger and better things at CFO. There will be a new design, a new logo, better navigation, and more resources. I'm optimistic that things will go smoothly and email and RSS subscribers won't notice anything amiss.

The site will be down for a few hours on Saturday afternoon/evening, and I won't be posting from noon Saturday until Sunday morning. You will be able to find me over on Facebook - I'll post deals and updates there, since CFO will be inaccessible.

When the new site is live, I'll hope you'll take it for a test drive and let me know what you think - what you like, what you don't like, and especially, if anything is broken.

As always, thank you for reading Chief Family Officer!

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. Electronic coupons are not supposed to stack at Ralphs. I don't print every coupon, 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. If you give them your snail mail address, they may send coupon mailers to you. 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). Some stores in LA County are still doubling multiple like coupons but this will reportedly end soon as all computers are updated.

Evening Roundup: New Land O Lakes Butter Coupon

I'm running low on spreadable butter (I usually stock up when it's on sale and then throw it in the freezer), so I'm happy to see the new Land O Lakes butter coupons at Coupons.com - there are coupons for $0.50/2 butter (sticks), $0.50/1 any spreadable butter, $0.50/1 Fresh Buttery Taste Spread, $0.40/1 packaged margarine, and $0.75/1 Cinnamon Sugar butter spread. The spreadable butter with olive oil doesn't have much of an olive oil taste and is super soft even when cold. If you shop at Vons/Pavilions (and possibly other Safeway stores), there's an in-coupon in the 8/17 ad that makes various products $1.99 - Land O Lakes spreadable butter is included, so the butter will be less than $1 if your store doubles.

Weight Watchers Smart OnesWeight Watchers is offering a printable coupon for $3/10 Smart Ones, which are on sale for $1.79 each at Target this week. That means you can get 10 for $1.49 each, which is a pretty good deal - anything under $1.50 for a frozen meal is a stock up price in my book, as under $1 is quite rare.

The printable coupon for $1/2 Mead Five Star products is back at RedPlum - it doesn't look like a reset, but if you missed it earlier this week, you can get it now.

Flash sale site Totsy is offering steep discounts on Laura Ashley shoes, and super adorable Miss Daisy Fairy costumes (Halloween is not that far off!). Thank you if you join(ed) Totsy using my referral link!

The CVS scanner machine is giving out free product coupons this week - I got one for free CVS fabric bandages 20-count and a free Hershey's Caramello. There's also supposed to be a coupon for free pantyliners, but I don't think I got that one. Apparently these coupons are printing for everyone, so be sure to scan your card if you go.

Get a printable coupon for $0.50/1 Breyer’s Blasts Ice Cream via Free Coupon Alerts.

Get a printable Facebook coupon for $0.50/1 Carmex Lime Twist and Vanilla lip balm and hold onto it for a couple of weeks - these will be free after Register Rewards the week of August 28, and this coupon makes the deal a moneymaker. (Via Couponing to Disney.)

Vocalpoint members may be able to request a full size sample of Swiffer Duster.

Get a printable coupon for a free soft drink when you buy a 2 or 3 entree plate at Panda Express (expires 9/10). (Via Savings Lifestyle.)

Back to School Lunch Tip: Freeze PB&J Sandwiches

Back in the day before food allergies banished all peanut products from our house, I discovered a great tip from Clever Dude: Freeze pre-made peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.

It's a simple concept - take a loaf of bread, make a bunch of sandwiches assembly-line style, bag or wrap them individually, and freeze. The photo you see is from Clever Dude's how-to post, which is excellent.

For the brief period of time that I was able to do this, it worked fabulously. I can't imagine anything easier for a school lunch - add some grapes or applesauce, a drink, a napkin and maybe a cookie, and you're good to go. That should take less than 5 minutes in the morning to get your kid's lunch ready.

What are your easiest back to school lunches?
