Going Green September 17, 2009

It is so annoying having to spend money on paper products.  Paper towels, paper napkins, toilet paper, paper, paper, paper, paper…..   ANYWAY, I stopped using paper towels to clean with.  I don’t even use paper towels to clean the glass and mirrors in my house.  A soft towel works even better.

Also, I bought several cloth napkins so I don’t need to buy/use paper napkins.  I bought them on sale at JCPenny.  They were 75% off (about $0.75/napkin).  It is actually very nice using cloth napkins.  It feels as if your eating at a restaurant.

I think I will keep buying toilet paper…  My husband might move away if I stop buying it.  LOL


Free or Almost Free March 28, 2009

I have been couponing for several months now.  There are good weeks and bad weeks.  One Frugal Chick got me started.  I read Money Saving Mom everyday and several other blogs that help me find good deals for things that I use.  This week was a good week.  Here is what I got for free or almost free:


The three baguettes were free.  The Hunts tomato sauce was 15 cents/can, the ribeye steak was free and the two T-Bone steaks were $1 each.

I am off to make French Toast Bake with one of my baguettes.


Coupon Find! November 18, 2008

It is a rarity that I find a good coupon or deal on my own, but it happened last week!  I got a Target magazine in the mail.  As I was looking through it, I felt something on the back.  Much to my delight, it was a coupon!!  It was for $10 off $100 purchase.  Because my purchases are usually less that $100, I used a whole bunch of coupons that I had been saving up and bought lots of household items.  All together I used $20 worth of coupons.

If you get a Target Christmas magazine in the mail don’t throw it away!  Get the coupon….and then recycle the magazine!


Blueberry Pound Cake November 17, 2008

Go to and print out the recipe for Blueberry Pound Cake.  It was the most moist pound cake I have ever had!  It had a dipping sauce to go with it.  Normally, I would never make the sauce to go with a recipe but I was feeling happy and went ahead and made the sauce.  Yum…Yum…  It was worth it, and my guests loved the sauce!  The secret ingredient:  2 6oz cartons of yogurt

Before you make this recipe, go here and sign up to recieve a coupon for buy one, get one free of Rachel’s Yogurt.  I am not sure why, but I received two of these coupons in the mail.
