CT Bloggers lose BIG.

This blog post explains it way better than I can. LOL

Any Blogger in CT right now as of this morning, has lost all thier affiliate contracts.  That means any monies they WERE making from affilates is no longer. Just like that.  Thank our Governor! I got my letter as of this morning, my Amazon Assocaites contract has been terminated thanks to this 'new' Ct state law. 

Its frustrating, infuriating, and disgusting.  Some CT bloggers used thier affilate contrats as a way to keep thier blogs self sustating and now they have nothing.  You should be outraged. I know I am.

Shoprite Deals 6/12-6/18

If you don't get the flyer in the mail, you will want to pick up the Sunday Paper this week to make sure you get the Shoprite flyer.  There are 2 Super Coupons that you will only get at home, they will not be there if you pick the flyer up instore.

The first Supercoupon is  Friendly's Ice Cream for .99.  Must spend $15  and Limit one. Since this is a store coupon, you can stack it with another coupon and possibly get your ice cream FREE. 

The other coupon is the Sweet Cantaloupe for .49! Limit one, and must spend $15 also.

There is a 3rd coupon that might work with a deal, but I think you can stack coupons with this one too.  Charmin Big Rolls 24pk OR Bounty 15pk for 8.99.  Limit one offer, and must spend $15.

With these couopns, after you spend $15, you can use all 3, you don't have to spend $15 for each one.    Still working on finding more deals, they are in there but I gotta find them. 

Bounty Paper towels: $5 Fan Fridays

Join Bounty's facebook page and every Friday  in June, they will release a $5 coupon  good on any Bounty purchase.  Hurry though, they only go to the first 5000 people and you don't know WHEN they will release the coupon.  It is not a printable, so you can't use it today, sorry.

Good Luck!!

Product Review: Crayola Color Coolerz

I found these at Walmart, and decided to try them out.

They cost 1.50 for a pack of 8  at Walmart.   Of course the kids were excited to see them, something different, something fun.  I sent them in lunch boxes, and to sports with them.  They are the perfect amount, not to much, not too little. 

They are essentially flavored waters, with colors added.  They come in 4 colors, Blue, Green, Red, and Purple.  (They have corresponding flavors of course)   I liked them.  I liked that they are sweetened with sucrolose instead of sugar,  there are no calories, AND, they are vitamin enhanced.

This is a nice, fun and frugal alternative to plain water!

I just (DUH!) caught on to this one!! LOL

In the May 1 inserts, there was a Pepsi insert, that has a Propel Coupon.   Save $1 when you buy either 1Propel, OR Propel Zero 6pk.

Propel singles are .50 at Walmart.  According to Walmart's NEW  coupon policy, they now  pay overages.   So here is your deal:

2 single bottles of Propel at .50 each = $1.00

Use your $1 off any propel coupon and pay nothing. Final cost, FREE! I have 3 coupons, thats 6 FREE bottles!! WOOHOO!!

Good Morning and Happy Mother's day!

Hoping all my favorite mommies are having a fantastic morning!!   Hope you are all getting breakfast in bed and lots of beautiful handmade cards.  Because YOU deserve it!!    Being a mom is hard business,  coming from a mom who's 11 year old has started puberty and I've been considering moving out to avoid her. LMAO!!!

SO far I got coffee made for me, a dozen donuts,  a chocolate bar, and a bag full of stuff my 9 year old made me in school.  She gave me a tea bag in a paper teacup, a card, and a potpourri  jar. And 3 coupons, I love coupns! LOL  I'll be getting a free bathroom cleaning, laundry folding, and HER room cleaned. ;) Love my girly!

  (I havn;t gotten anything else yet, but Bud Bud is still sleeping and moody 11 year old raided my donuts. LOL)
