Free PC game

How would you like a free PC game from Amazon?  You can go here to download Cake Mania.  It's a cute game to waste some time between loads of laundry.  Amazon will verify a payment option, but does not charge you.  Go grab a free game :)

Frugal Ice Cream!

Don't you just love a deal?  Especially when it's a treat?  Tonight Baskin Robbins is having their annual 31¢ scoop night.  Go to the Baskin Robbins website for more details.

Free Samples

Did you know that you can request free samples from companies?  Sometimes you can actually receive a coupon for a full size product.  I love trying new products and I love free stuff.

Garnier has a free sample to request.  Fill out the form and enjoy the free shampoo/conditioner.

Weekly Shopping Trip

Surgery went well, and we are getting back to normal. 

I went Monday to grab a couple deals at my local Safeway.  I normally don't frequent Safeway (unless there is a deal!!)  Safeway sent out a postcard of coupons and I used all the free ones I could.

Safeway salad dressing: FREE
Safeway marinade: FREE
Mission tortillas: FREE
Safeway frozen veg: FREE
Safeway salsa verde: FREE
Safeway brown rice: FREE
9 cereals
3 pints of strawberries
2 lbs of grapes
french bread

The total was $25.60!

Surgery Week

I have to take the week off as two out of three of my kids need surgery!  Between running around serving jello, I'm trying to keep the house under control and not go insane! 

As soon as I gain some control, I will be out looking for some deals and frugal ideas to post.

I love Swagbucks!  It's a search engine, but you randomly are awarded points for searching.  You can vote in a daily poll, play games or watch videos all for swagbucks.  You can also just use it as a regular search engine.

I cash in 450 Swagbucks for a $5.00 Amazon Gift Card.  I'm saving up my gift cards to help my Christmas budget go further.  I have cashed out for 9 Amazon Gift Cards this year for a total of $45!!  That's free money just for searching.

Hello & Welcome

I've been asked to do a blog for quite some time.  I enjoy reading blogs and using them, but never gave a thought to having one of my own.

With the help of my lovely daughter, here I am!
