As I talked about before and most of you know, Walgreens is no longer doing their Easy Saver Rebate program. Instead they are increasing their Register Rewards program. I have had so many problems with the register rewards program in the past with things not printing, having to make sure you follow all of the fine print (i.e. # of coupons have to be equal to # of items) and rolling Register Rewards not working right. With all of the problems and conflicting info I have received from store managers I will be taking the week to talk to corporate and get an official letter explaining rolling RR and proper uses which I hope to share with you next week. I'll also test out a few deals and hope to be back in full force next week!!!

"What's For Dinner" Gift Basket Giveaway-Closed

I really do enjoy cooking, especially gourmet made-from-scratch cooking...when I have time, the recipe all picked out, the right ingredients on hand and no kids running around and screaming. Since it isn't very often that all the stars align to have all of the above, I am always on the lookout for quick, simply dinner ideas. Recently I had the opportunity to try this Macaroni Grill Creamy Basil Dinner Kit. It was absolutely delicious and easy to make.

Here's some information about Macaroni Grill Dinner Kits:
With the new line of dinner kits inspired by the chefs at Romano's Macaroni Grill, you can now easily make four classic Italian meals at home. With quick and easy preparation, a Romano's Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites meal is ready to eat in about 20 minutes.
The dinner kits include everything needed to create a high-quality meal in one box including premium ingredients such as such as vine-ripened tomatoes, select cooking wines, specialty herbs and 100% semolina pasta. All you have to do is add one pound of chicken or your choice of proteins such as shrimp or Italian sausage. Varieties of Romano's Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites dinner kits include Garlic & Herb Chicken Penne, Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken & Pasta, Chicken Alfredo with Linguine and Chicken Marsala with Linguine."

I'm excited to tell you that 3 lucky readers will win a "What's For Dinner" Gift Basket which includes a sample of the Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken Pasta variety, three coupons to try the other varieties the next time you visit your local grocer, a colander, serving spoon and cheese grater.

Yeah for fellow couponers

Today I was shopping the Doubles at Kmart (Woo Hoo, My total was $54 before coupons, $2 after!!). I ran into a couple of other people who had coupons out and were obviously doing the same thing. But I ran into one person who looked like she really knew what she was doing. I had to stop her and compare deals with her. We talked for over 20 minutes and in the end she gave me some coupons and told me about some deals I never knew were out there. It made my day and was great to meet another person and hear what sites she used and how she finds herdeals. She gave me the name of a few sites I am going to check out and if they work out I will share them with you later this week!

Flower Craft Idea

I am in charge of crafts for a bunch of 4 & 5 year olds every Wednesday night so I am always looking for new and fresh ideas for things to do with them. Right now we are working on Mother's Day crafts and we are making flowers this week. I found this awesome flower on the Parents website and thought I would share it with you. It is pretty easy to make and lots of fun. I would say that if you have a 4 year old they will need help with this...but 5 and up can make it with little instruction. My daughter and I made some as a test run for tomorrow night and they came out so cute. For instructions, visit here.

If you make it, let me know how you do!!!

See Kai Run Giveaway!-closed

I just love shoes!!! And I'm afraid I might have passed my shoe addiction on to my two children who can't stand to go by a shoe section in a store without stopping to try some on. That's why I'm so excited to tell you about See Kai Run. See Kai Run has the cutest line of children's shoes for sizes 0 months-8 years old! (although this giveaway is only for sizes 0 months-3 years). What's best is that they aren't only fun to look at, they are designed to provide the support a growing child's foot needs.

Here a little about See Kai Run from the creator herself:

"In 2002 I gave birth to a little boy named Kai. Two years later, I gave birth to a company called See Kai Run. See Kai Run was inspired by the need for comfortable shoes with flexible soles for my little Kai to wear outdoors. I wanted to create a line of shoes that was as happening as Kai - bold, hip, fun, with an urban sensibility. Something entirely different than what was offered.

Twice a year, I design a new collection of 15-20 designs. Our designs are sophisticated and classic with modern twists sprinkled throughout. And most importantly, our shoes are healthy for developing feet. The soles are made of extremely flexible rubber which is great for outdoor use while allowing the foot to flex in all the right places. They're also made of butter soft leather with a breathable leather lining and padded collars for comfort. Finally, See Kai Run shoes are easy to get on and off with Velcro closures that ensure a great fit."

I had the opportunity to try out the boy's Ocean style. I was very impressed with the quality of the shoes. It was so soft on the upper part of the shoe. And the bottom was very flexible yet it had a sturdy sole to protect my son's feet. I really loved the look of the shoe. It was very different than the standard shoe you see everywhere. In fact the first day I had him in the shoes I had two comments from fellow moms asking me where I got them from because they were so different from what they had seen before! But don't take my word for it, go check them out yourself!

One lucky winner will get to pick any pair of shoes from the See Kai Run or Smaller line.

To enter: Click here to go to See Kai Run and take a look around. Come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favorite shoe is.

What I learned this week

I started this blog a little over a month ago, and mentally I've changed direction a few times over the course of the month. I definitely want to share deals that I know about (thus all of the deals listed)...and I know I love to find fun, unique products that other moms want to hear about (thus the giveaways)...but I never thought about sharing anything too personal. After all, who wants to read about how my day went??

Then I came across a few personal blogs that I have found that I can't stop reading. They are inspiring, sometimes silly, educational, and always helpful. I have to share the name of my favorite one with you, it is the Musings of a Houswife. I just love reading her site, and when she started a "what I learned this week" carnival, I have decided to join in on the fun. To be part of this carnival, I will be posting a "what I learned this week" post every week to give you some piece of information that I have learned this week...if you enjoy it, please let me know!

What I've learned this week
  • I've learned that if you take kids to a strawberry u-pic field and don't supervise them well, you will end up with a basketfull of half squashed, half-worm invested bucket of strawberries that cost you more than they do in the store.

  • I've learned that when one kid gets a runny nose, break out the tissues because the rest of the family will be getting it soon

  • I've learned that sometimes it is more fun to make up your own recipe than to follow one

  • I've learned that having family nearby is the best blessing of all!
  • Free Rachel Ray grocery tote

    For the month of May, buy any participating Kraft Food Product, send in a 3x5 card with your name & address and the original cash receipt with purchase price cirlcled, and get a Every Day with Rachel Ray reusable grocery tote.

    $50 Nikki Knits Clothing Gift Cert. giveaway (2 winners!!)-CLOSED

    I can still picture the dresses. Every Mother’s Day, my mom and I would dress up in matching dresses that she handmade. Since my daughter was born, I’ve had visions of the two of us dressed up in our matching dresses too. My daughter is now 4 years old and I have NEVER been able to sew any clothes, let alone matching outfits for us both! Which is why I was so excited when I found Nikki Knits Clothing Co.

    Nikki Knits has the most adorable line of matching mother/daughter clothing. They have pajamas, t-shirts, dresses and skirts. They have everyday clothing and clothing for holidays and special events.

    Nikki Knits' site is really easy to navigate and to search through. They offer a variety of unique items, even some clothing to match the whole family. Their prices and sizes are easy to distinguish. Overall, I found their site to be very easy on the eyes and enjoyable to browse through.

    I received the Palm Paradise matching outfits. When the outfits arrived I was so excited to get them out and see them. They came wrapped in cute matching palm tree tissue paper. The dresses were made out of a very soft fabric that does not wrinkle very easily. When we tried them on the material hung nicely on both my daughter and me. And the material is machine washable! My daughter was so excited that we looked the same. She thought it was so much fun!
    The ordering process was very simple. The site was easy to navigate through. The shipping time was quick. The product was unique and of quality! If you are looking for matching clothing, especially with Mother’s Day coming up, I highly recommend you check out Nikki Knits.

    Here’s a few words about their company from their site:
    Nikki Knits Clothing Co. LLC. was created by Rachel Bilodeau owner and CEO. She started the company to make mother daughter matching clothing available and affordable after the birth of her daughter. She started with mother daughter matching tee shirts and now we have family matching pajamas, mother daughter dresses and mother daughter outfits, and many other family matching products.

    Nikki Knits is now the largest supplier of family matching and mother daughter matching clothing on the web. We have options for baby shower gifts such as comfortable mother baby matching lounge wear, that mommy can wear when she comes home from the hospital. There are also maternity shirts available for expectant mommies. We know how little girls want to be just like mommy when they grow up so we have a wonderful line of mother daughter matching dresses and mother daughter matching skirt and capri sets.

    Nikki Knits is a $50 Nikki Knits Clothing gift card to two lucky winners!

    Happy April Fool's Day!

    It's April Fool's Day. I remember growing up this day was so much fun...I pulled lots of pranks on my teachers, family and friends. Why stop now? Here's a few ideas I've found for April Fool's Day that are cute and easy to do!

    Fried-egg Sundae
    by Cindy A. Littlefield

    If you really want to dupe your kids on April Fools' Day, you need a prank that won't leave egg on your face. Here's a sweet trick that fits the bowl!
    INGREDIENTS:Ice creamMarshmallow fluffLemon pudding/pie filling (an instant mix works fine)
    Scoop ice cream into a dish, then spoon on a generous blob of marshmallow fluff (it will smooth out and resemble an egg white as the air escapes).
    For a yolk, add a rounded blob of lemon pudding. Makes one sundae.

    Meat Loaf
    1 pound lean ground beef
    1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
    1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
    3 tablespoons ketchup
    1 egg
    1/2 teaspoon celery salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    Potato Frosting
    3 cups mashed potatoes
    Food coloring
    1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 12 muffin tin cups with foil bake cups.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the meat loaf ingredients until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly among the lined cups (the liners should be about three quarters full)
    3. Place the filled muffin tins on cookie sheets and bake the cupcakes for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.
    4. Divide the mashed potatoes among three small bowls and stir a few drops of food coloring into each batch to create blue, yellow, and pink pastel frostings. Spread a generous dollop on each cupcake. Makes 12 cupcakes.
