TOLL HOUSE RECALL!!!

Nestle Recall of Toll House Cookie Dough

LEARN MORE
Nestle Toll House- Web site
FDA -Press release of Toll House warning

Consumers are being warned by the federal Food and Drug Administration not to consume the popular Nestle Toll House prepackaged, refrigerated cookie dough.

The company is recalling all varieties of the dough products due to the risk of contamination with E. coli 0157:H7, a bacterium that causes food borne illness.

Consumers, restaurants and retailers are advised to throw out the product. Even cooking the dough is not recommended because of the possibility the bacteria can transfer to hands and cooking surfaces.

66 reports have come in from 28 states since March of illnesses, usually vomiting, abdominal cramping, bloody diarrhea. Healthy individuals can usually recover within a week, but the bacteria can lead to serious kidney damage and death among the most susceptible, the very young and elderly.

Individuals experiencing any of these symptoms are advised to contact a doctor, who is required to report the illness to state or local health authorities.

E. coli contamination is frequently associated with contaminated animal products, such as meat.

Nestle is providing a complete listing of the recalled products.

Consumers who have additional questions about these products should contact Nestle consumer services at 1-800-559-5025 and/or visit their Web site at www.verybestbaking.com .

Toll House products include refrigerated cookie dough in a bar, in a tub, in a tube as well as the limited edition cookie dough items or seasonal cookie dough (for Christmas) and Ultimates cookie bar dough. Other Toll House products are not affected.

No deaths have been associated with this recalls. #

I have had 2 readers email me with issues viewing my site. I myself do not have an issue viewing it and I have asked a few other people if they are experiencing issues and they have not.

I did use my backup computer today which has Internet Explorer 7 on it and I was not able to see my 1st post after I scrolled down a touch but then once I scrolled back up I was able to see it. My daily computer has Internet Explorer 8 on it so maybe that could be the issue?

Amazon Alarm system

Buffalo Tools DWASET 2 Piece Door & Window Entry Alarm Set 92% off!!! Now $4.95! FSSS ($25)

I doubt this is the most effective alarm system you could own but if you rent or just want a little extra protection without spending 100’s this could be a great option!

  • Mounts Easily With Adhesive Tape To Window Or Door – No Tools Required
  • EZ Push – On/Off Switch To Stop & Restart Alarm
  • Operated By Button Cell
  • Approximately 90Db at 3 FT Distance

Product Description
The Door Window alarm uses a magnetic sensor to detect the opening of a protected door or window. A 100 dB alarm will then alert you to an attempted entry and scare off potential intruders. The owner may open the window or other protected object, without setting off the alarm by switching the on/off switch to the off position. This alarm may also be used within the home to alert parents to children opening a gun or medicine cabinet or used to protect exterior doors(from the inside), particularly those hard to protect sliding glass doors. Commercial uses include showcases and cash registers. Comes with batteries installed and 2 sided sticky tape for mounting anywhere you need it. Batteries included.

Have a Barrel of Maker’s Mark named after you

ANOTHER HUGE!!! shout out to freesamplefreak.com for this fun find!

This information below is from the site. It’s completely free! Interested? Fill out the form.

You’ve no doubt already discovered that introducing Maker’s Mark to your friends is one of life’s easier endeavors. Especially when they taste such a smooth, handcrafted bourbon for themselves. (Not exactly like selling air conditioning at the North Pole, is it?)

Still we feel that it’s proper to make it clear exactly what’s expected of a Maker’s Mark Ambassador. After all, we shouldn’t just go running around making stuff up about Maker’s Mark when the truth is so much more tasteful.

So here you go. Call it the official Ambassador mandate, mission or duty. Just don’t call it a job-because this is too easy to be considered work:

I, as a Maker’s Mark Ambassador, do pledge to introduce those who have not yet had the pleasure (poor souls) to the smooth taste of Maker’s Mark bourbon. To help friends understand, appreciate and savor what handmade bourbon is all about. To encourage establishments I encounter within my travels to stock Maker’s Mark for their thirsty patrons. And to lead by my own example, that every occasion for enjoying bourbon is the perfect occasion for enjoying Maker’s Mark.

If you’re sharing the Maker’s Mark experience with others, we feel you should be rewarded. So we’re personally offering you the opportunity to become a genuine Maker’s Mark Ambassador. In return, you’ll enjoy all the privileges that go along with carrying out such a noble and dignified deed. You’ll get your name in Maker’s Mark history, plus:

+ Your name on a Maker’s Mark barrel.
+ An opportunity to purchase a bottle of Maker’s Mark from your batch.
+ Updates on the aging of your bourbon.
+ Advanced notice of rare, special-release bottles.
+ Opportunity to purchase Ambassadors-only Maker’s Mark merchandise.
+ Many other items that confirm your honorable status.

Old Navy Weekly reset?

I have a hunch that ONW might reset sometimes from now till tomorrow. There are about 190 left of the $20/$100 left and from past experiences ONW has reset once these have gone so keep and eye out if your needing one!

Plus! The ONW coupons do not expire till 6/21 so there should be at least 1 more reset planned before then.

Let me know your thoughts!

This group looks like fun!

A new Old Navy Weekly winner!

Congrats! Sarah!
My 1st winner did not leave her email & did not contact me within the 24 hrs I asked so I picked a second winner!

~Sarah, I emailed you the coupon. Please let me know that you received it.

What do you do with your samples?

Slam! vroom vroom..

Ooo! The sound of the mail person closing the truck and driving away.. It’s time to go check and see what fun items they have brought you today. Ahh! it looks to be a bunch of free samples, but now what do you do with them? Do you store them in a basket? Do you use it right away?

What do you think about most samples? Sometimes the samples are just enough to put on your finger but then other times you can use it for a week! All in all a sample is a sample that will be put to good use!

To the top right of this post you will see a questionnaire. Please feel free to pick as many answers that suit you. Please also feel free to leave a comment about your sample fetish and what is the next step after receiving them in the mail.

~Vicky just emailed me this infomation that I think is just great!

I have put my samples in baskets without touching them for 2 yrs. Today I came across a site
www.anysoldier.com that lists soldiers deployed and wishlists for care packages. I came across a female soldier in Iraq wanting travel size shampoo’s, soaps, toothpastes and other toiletries. They go from village to village and need these items because its easier to pack when they are on the go. Well I filled a large box with every sample I had and added full size items that I hoarded from sales. I am mailing it out tomorrow morning.

UPDATE: FREE phone charger from Graveyardmall.com

Did anyone else order the Shopping Frugal: FREE after rebate survey (the phone charger from Graveyardmall.com) ?

Well, if you did you might have noticed the $10 survey that came with the phone charger was no longer available.. meaning you didn’t get the phone charger for free as stated on their site. I wrote Graveyardmall.com on Saturday to inform them of this and they wrote me back today and also refunded my full payment of $9.99 for the issues they were not aware of. I just noted that I would not have bought this item if it wasn’t going to be “free”. This shows me that they are a company I can trust and shop at without any worries. If this happened to you I suggest emailing them.

Does your store take printable coupons?

Does your store not take coupons.com coupons? Look at this information I just found on Veri-fi.com

Please let us know, and we’ll send them information to help better inform them about printable coupons. They want you to have a positive experience; they just may not know the facts.
We also encourage you to refer them to the Retailer Resources on this site (the URL is printed on most coupons) and/or contact their corporate headquarters. Sometimes local stores are not aware of their corporate policy to accept printable coupons.
Finally, call their customer service line and let them know you want to use your coupons at their store.


Also, not sure if you have a legitimate Coupons? Use Veri-fi.com to enter in your unique code.

What is the difference?!

Wow! So I was over at www.hiptosave.com and there was a little rumble about stacking and printing and using retailer coupons at other stores (the new Publix Kraft coupon post). I thought I might go over what I personally thought about this, and would love to hear your opinions.
-I have contacted Veri-Fi (coupons.com coupons) and asked for a coupon policy about these different coupon titles.

First off, I would like to inform you about the new Publix Kraft printable coupons that I posted last week. To see these coupons click
Kraft coupons!

From what I have read, some are printing out Retailer’s coupon, and other’s are printing out Manufacturer Coupon with Redeem at Publix.

A Retailer’s coupon- can only be used at the store that intended it to be used by. Even though this is a barcode coupon, if you use this at a store that is not listed on the coupon the store WILL NOT get reimbursed, even though it might not beep when using it.

*I personally would not use a Retailer’s Coupon at a different store. I believe this is why couponers get a bad rap…we should not be greedy as we are fortunate to save at other times.

A Manufacturer Coupon with Redeem at Publix- this is intended to be used at Publix only but can be used at any other store. This is what I like to call a “gray area” coupon.

*This is my personal opinion, but I would not use this coupon at another store either. The store has clearly made a deal with the brand and I would feel bad giving the business to another company. Same with the All You magazine coupons that say (not all say) only at Walmart.

“Stacking“- I would not “stack” these Retailer and Manufacturer coupons together. The Publix retailer coupons are barcoded and listed in the rules of the coupon say 1 coupon per item indicated. This is not the case for Publix ad coupons that do not have a barcode! Those store coupons can be stacked with manufacturer coupons.

I then decided to call my local Publix to get a definitive yes or no to clarify this for you. I spoke to the Manager and asked if we would be allowed to “stack” the Retailer’s Coupons and the Manufacturer Coupons (we printed a few weeks ago). He informed me that the coupons do state 1 coupon per item indicated; but if I were to come in (in order to keep my business) and speak to him before checkout he would try to work with me regarding the stacking of coupons. If you are dying to stack the coupons, I suggest you call your local store and see if they will work out the same sort of deal with you.

~Would I take him up on his offer? No.

If for any reason you disagree with this, I suggest you call the store you would be shopping at to see if they will be willing to take these coupons prior to shopping. I guess it doesn’t hurt to ask!

*this is from what I have been taught and what I know, again, I am waiting for a coupon policy from Veri-Fi.com to make sure that this information is correct.

CVS 101

CVSing! Tips and rules of shopping and savings at CVS using Extra Care Bucks (ECB)

First things first:

  • Before shopping at CVS you need to fill out a Extra Care Card (ECC) membership form. You can do this in-store (you’ll get your card immediately) or online (2 weeks). The CVS ECC is a must have item to receive your ECB! After you have received your ECC, I suggest you register it online to receive their emails for free 4 x 6 photos (50 FREE)! They will also send you a $4 off $20 in store or online coupon. Are you already on CVS’s mailing list? You can update your account with a new email for another coupon. When checking out hand over your $4 off $20 coupon before any of your other manufacturer or CVS store coupons.

How does the Extra Care program work?

  • ECB is the CVS reward program. The ECB print out at the end of your receipt and are used just like money towards your next purchase, once you present your ECC at checkout. The ways you can earn ECB are by looking at the CVS circular on Sundays where they will list the products producing ECB. Earn two ECB for every prescription purchased in the store or online. You will also earn 2% cash back on every purchase in store and online. These will print out at the end of your receipt every 3 months.

Things to know about ECB:

  • You can purchase an item and use those same ECB it produced to buy the same item over again as long as that item has a limit of more than 1! This is a great way to “roll” ECB.
  • ECB do not pay tax and do not give cash back, so when you use them make sure your purchase is more than what your ECB is valued at.
  • You will not receive cash back from using an ECB, so make sure your order comes to a little more than the value of the ECB you plan on using.
  • ECB are only valid for the card they were printed for.
  • You can use as many ECB as you want in one transaction, as long as they don’t go over your purchase total. You can also use as many ECB on 1 item (this is unlike the RR system at Walgreens, where you need one item for every coupon you use).
  • If you purchase multiple items for a particular deal in one transaction, only one ECB will print for that deal. That being the case, if you are suppose to get a $2 ECB for a shampoo and a $5 ECB for a Revlon product, it will print out a $7 ECB coupon instead of 2 separate ones. This is OK because it’s only 1 coupon you need to keep track of. However, you may not want your single ECB coupons to add up too high as it can be harder to spend and “roll”.
  • Here is a link to CVS and manufacturer printable Coupons. Remember, just like other stores you can “stack” CVS and manufacturer coupons together for a sweet deal!
