Moving????? AGAIN!!!!!!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that the closing on our house has now been rescheduled for a 3rd time (I think...I am losing count)! I am also moved into my in-laws house which does not have internet or cable! (Can you say GOING INSANE!) So, my blogging has become almost non-existent, but hopefully we will get moved into our home in the next weekend or two! Then once I get everthing settled, life will be back to normal again and my days can be filled with blogging, facebook and bejeweled blitz again!!!!!!!!!!!!! Deal Pro!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I was chosen to be a Deal Pro!! I will be flying out to San Francisco in a few days and attending their Save Up 2009 event! I will hopefully come back with lots of resources and money saving ideas. This is just another step to reaching my goals that I have for myself and my family. More information and photos to come.

Thanks Everyone for the well wishes and congratulations!

Idea for Leftover Piecrust

Okay, I know this isn't my usual post, but I saw this idea and thought, WOW, why didn't I think of that! AND it will save you money by getting more out of the piecrust you bought or made if you are extra talented!!
Thanks to Martha Stewart for this idea:
When baking for the holidays, don't toss out dough scraps. They can make delectable little snacks! Shape scraps into a disk, and refrigerate until form, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with a cookie-cutter. Place cut-outs on parchment-lined baking sheets. Chill until firm, about 30 minutes. Top with grated Cheddar cheese, or brush with cream and sprinkle with poppy seeds or paprika. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Transfer on parchment to a wire rack. Let cool slightly before serving. For a sweet version, dust with cinnamon-sugar before baking!

Coupon Abbreviations Explained...

I just received an email asking me about what the abbreviations mean when we are talking couponing! So, here is something I have found to hopefully help everyone out!

Sunday inserts:
P&G = Procter & Gamble Sunday insert
RP = Red Plum
SS = SmartSource
V = Valassis

When I list the store deals and refer to a coupon from a Sunday insert, the information on where to find the coupon is in parentheses. For example,
(SS 12/14/08) would indicate that a coupon came from a SmartSource insert that was distributed in the 12/14/08 Sunday newspaper.

Coupon lingo:
$1/1, $1/2, etc. = One dollar off one item, one dollar off two items, etc.
2/$1, 3/$2, etc. = Two items for one dollar, three items for two dollars, etc.
BOGO = Buy one item get one item free
B2GO = Buy two items get one item free
Blinkies = Grocery/drugstore coupon dispensers with blinking lights
Cat = Catalina coupon, prints from a separate machine when your receipt prints
CRT = Cash register tape, usually used when referring to CVS coupons that print with receipt
ECBs = ExtraCare Bucks, CVS loyalty rewards system
ESRs = EasySaver Rebates, Walgreens monthly rebates program
FAR = Free after rebate
IPQ = Internet printable coupon
IVC = Instant Value Coupon, Walgreens’ store coupons found in ads and ESR booklet
MFR = Manufacturer
MIR = Mail-in rebate
OYNO = On your next order
OOP = Out of pocket
Peelie = Peel-off coupon found on product packaging
PSA = Prices starting at
RRs = Register Rewards, Walgreens’ Catalina coupons
SCR = Single Check Rebate, Rite Aid monthly rebates program
UPC = Universal Product Code, bar code on a product
WT = Wine tag, no alcohol purchase necessary to use these coupons
WYB = When you buy
YMMV = Your manager may vary, some stores may allow you to do a deal, some may not.

Nautica Cologne Sample for Men

This quick registration form will get you a free sample of the new Nautica cologne for men. They claim that it is water based and eco-friendly.
I'm kinda hoping the model comes with the sample;)
