Free Betty Crocker Potatoes

Fill out a few blanks, and Betty Crocker will send you a free potato sample. Pretty easy, peasy! And then you get a little treat in the mail, that probably costs more to send it than it would have to just buy it at the store. This is the way I support USPS.

Target School Supplies Clearance

Has anyone been to Target lately and seen whether or not school supplies are on clearance? Just wanted to get some stuff for next year (backpacks and lunch boxes). If you know of any places that have this stuff on sale, let me know!

Update: I drove to Target tonight (8-31) and still no clearance on school supplies. Then I found this from a self-proclaimed Target expert internet man.
"Target clearance follows a strict schedule depending on when school starts in different states. Usually the pattern goes as following: 1st week school starts 15-30% off depending on the amount left and location, 2nd week 30-50%, 3rd week 50-75% and they usually have to be gone within a month. Most stores sell out in the 50% week and some make it to 75%. Our stores in Central Florida make it to the 75% week and we stock up!! Continually check up every 3-5 days or so and you can save a lot of money on school supplies!"
Wrong, wrong, internet man. I thought I could put my trust in you, but alas. So we are in week 2 of school and nada. So much for the "strict schedule." But I won't be sad when I am forced to return to Target to recheck the school stuff and stop by every end cap in the store. They are like magnets.

Free Almond Tin

So you may be thinking what I'm thinking, "Is it worth my time for a tiny almond tin?" And yes, that's all you get. No almonds. Boo! You have to fill out a survey to get your free tin. In the end, I figured we could use the tiny tin for packing lunches, so I filled out the survey and should be getting my nutless tin in 6-8 weeks.

Chik-fil-A Free Sandwich

Chik-fil-A is giving away a free sandwich coupon to the first 250,000 people to register on this site. Plus if you wear your favorite sport team's shirt into any location on Labor Day (from 10:30 a.m. to close), you get ANOTHER free sandwich. Plus, plus, last time I went there and used a free sandwich coupon I got in the mail, I got a coupon for another free sandwich if I take a survey. Sorry to all the Westies and Yankees who don't have access to the best chicken sandwiches at a location with a playground ever.

Free Shutterfly 8x8 Photo Book

Expires August 26th. Make a free 8.8 hard cover photo book (regularly $29.99). Coupon code at check out is SUMMERBOOK. I make one of these every birthday for my kids, and they LOVE them. It takes me forever to make them (even though it's supposed to be fast). So I'll be ordering mine around 11:59 p.m. on the 26th. You still have to pay shipping, which is around 8 bucks. Still a good price for an awesome custom book.

Tip I heard on Oprah: scan in your child's artwork and include it in the book. Cuts down on old scrappy papers around the house. Since we've started scanning in artwork, my daughter doesn't get those moments of depressing shock when she finds her masterpieces in the recycle bin. It took me a couple times of explaining and showing her the artwork on the laptop, but now, she'll even take her own artwork to the trash can.

$10 off $10 or more at Things Remembered

I redeemed this coupon a few weeks ago at the Oaks Mall. You can purchase any item in the store, and they have a clearance rack (yay!). I bought a heart shaped box (left over from Valentine's Day, but luckily hearts work for little girls all year) for Bella for her birthday. You don't have to have the items you purchase engraved. You have to purchase over $10, so we added two items together to reach our ten bucks. We ended up spending about two dollars.

25 Free Prints from Walgreens

Sign up for a new account at Walgreens and get 25 free prints. I love using these free prints to do stuff like print pictures for the church bulletin boards, and right now, I'm working on filling in some pre-made scrap books for the twins. Phew, it's hard to insert pictures into books that already did all of the creative work for you. But somehow we manage.
This expires August 24th, 2009.

Pardon the interruption

I have not been posting for quite some time because of the latest double addition to our family. I couldn't even look at coupons (gasp) for a long time because the pictures of food or reminders of food made me want to vomit. And at times did make me vomit.
So we are back to finding great deals. My goal is to post great deals in my community and online. These will be things that I actually use for my family, so I think it might be interesting to you as well. Let me know if I miss something big, and I will add it! The more cheap/free stuff the better...and merrier.
