How to stay organized before your shopping trips

If you’re like me, you follow several blogs for different deals. This can become overwhelming at the end of the week when you make your shopping list and have to track back through all the deals. My suggestion to keep you organized on your weekly shopping trips is to get a notebook. Label 1 page/section of the notebook by store and date the page for the week. (This can also work with a spreadsheet on the computer)

When you come across a deal you like and will use; jot it down in the matching store section so it will be easy to reference when making your shopping list. Make sure to list all of its details so there will be no need to go back to search for the post. Does it have a printable coupon? Print it then to avoid the coupon becoming maxed out when you need it.

Along with the store deals in the notebook, I have a section for freebies/samples. I jot down the name of the freebie/sample along with the date I requested it, and if it is shown, the estimate shipping date. Freebies and samples are requests only and sometimes you will not get them all, but it’s nice to look back to see your ratio of ones you did and didn’t receive for future reference of legit companies.

I personally hope this will be a great way to have my shopping list on its way instead of scrambling for the info right before the shopping trip.

Wellness pet food coupons!

I love Wellness natural pet food for my cat. All of their recipes are free from meat by products, corn, soy and wheat as well as artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. She gobbles it up too!

I like to use these at Pet Supermarket as they carry the 3 oz cat food cans for .99 cents (usually 5 for $4) and I combine them with their $5 off $25 coupon.

Here are some printable coupons:
  • Wellness coupon $1.00 off can food (any size) 7/15
  • Wellness coupon $3.00 off dry food (excludes trial sizes) 7/15
  • Wellness coupon $2.00 off treats 7/15

Rubbermaid has new products out! GIVEAWAY

I will never look at food storage the same after seeing the new line of products Rubbermaid have come out with!

  • Produce Saver ~ Keeps products fresh & crisp.
  • Lock-its ~ Locking tabs for extra security.
  • EasyFind ~ Everyday storage.
  • Premier ~ Stain resistant for lifetime clarity.

After opening up my box of goodies, I went straight for the Produce Saver. I have tried everything to help keep fruits and veggies fresher longer; from a variety of storage containers to colored plastic bags. The way the Produce Saver works is with the Fresh Vent™, which allows produce to breathe while the Crisp Tray™ separates the produce from moisture.

Have you ever been embarrassed to bring food to a party because of your stained containers? No more embarrassment here. Rubbermaid Premier has a high end style that can be used in the freezer, microwave and is dishwasher safe. What really stood out to me was the clear plastic! It really makes a difference. It looks clean, and no more guessing what’s inside with the clear window in the lid.

All 4 product lines have the EasyFind Lids™ system that keeps lids and bases organized. Lids and bases snap together and to the base for neat storage. They also nest inside each other for stacking. This is a great invention for people with limited space. Going to a party? You can stack (lock) the containers on top of each other for easy traveling. All lids can be placed on any of the other bases. For example, your Produce Saver 3 oz lid can fit on your Lock-its 3 oz base.

Interested in learning more? Check out easyfindlids for more information and a $1 off coupon.

The nice part is Rubbermaid wants to give a 20 piece set to one of my readers! This set will include 2 Produce Savers/2 lids, 2 Premier/2 lids, 3 EasyFind/2 lids, 3 Lock~its/2 lids.

Diaper’s as low as $1.87 at Rite Aid!?

Ok, I found this on I do not have children or Rite Aid so I am copying this word for word and I know this is missing where to find the coupons. I know had $3 off Huggies Naturals and I know (if your Rite Aid takes competitor coupons) Publix and Toys R Us had recent Huggies coupons (on my site). Plus is this a good price for diapers? I apologize not having the full info but if anyone knows more please chime in!

Check this out for more details!! Money Saving Mom: Rite Aid: Corrected Huggies Scenarios

Rite Aid’s July Rebate Deals include the following offers, which can both be used:

#61 offers a $25 Rite Aid gift card when you buy $50 worth of select products, including Huggies Supreme or Snug & Dry diapers.
#800 gives you a coupon for a free pack of Huggies diapers when you buy 5 packs

Here’s how to work the deal:

1)Print two $5 off $25 coupons for Rite Aid purchases from
Since you have two coupons, you’ll need to do two separate transactions. You might need to add a small “filler” item to get your total to $25 for one of those transactions.

2)Buy 5 Huggies jumbo packs.
(From what I gather, these are generally priced around $11.49, but you do need to spend at least $50 to qualify for the rebate.)

3)Use 5 Huggies manufacturer’s coupons (if you have that many.).

4)Get your $25 gift card back after you submit your rebate.

5)Get your coupon for a free pack of Huggies diapers after you submit your rebate online.

6)Submit your receipt to Caregivers Marketplace to get $.75 back for each pack of Huggies purchased.

~After all is said and done, you’ll get your diapers for as low as $1.87 per pack.

Mystery Shopping~ A Closer Look

Are you interested in Mystery Shopping? I will be putting together a list of companies I have worked for before and have had a pleasant experience with.

Today’s Mystery shopping company I am suggesting is

  • The mystery shop I did for them was Seasons 52 restaurant shop. I was given a $40 gift card to Seasons 52 and paid $10 for my time. I was allowed to go alone or with family.
  • If you are interested in signing up for please visit their website or email me for a email referral. (going through me you will be entered in a $100 monthly giveaway)

With mystery shopping, you need to follow theirs rules 100% or you will NOT get paid. It’s not hard too follow, they make it easy! I really enjoy it, plus you can make some extra cash or dine for free.


~When signing up for Mystery Shopping, most companies will ask you for an example of a mystery shop. If you have not done one before just write about a recent dining experience.. They LOVE detail! (lighting, music, smells, taste.. etc.. ) Make sure to save a copy of your “pretend shop” as it will be easy to copy/paste if you sign up for more then one Mystery Shopping company.

Please feel free to ask any questions you have.

Summer Diets

I have not done Jenny Craig before but I did Smart For Life last year as we were going to a beach wedding (swimsuit!!) and lost 25 LB’s in 1 1/2 months. It really does work, but your not eating much! You eat 6 “cookies” a day and then a protein/veggie meal. I suggest only eating the chocolate chip cookies and microwaving them for 10-20 seconds to make them edible 😛 I did cheat a little and would eat Edamane’s and Sugar Free Jello as snacks but still saw weight loss. If your looking to lose weight quick this is your plan! (average of 15 lb your 1st month)

RECALL! JBS-Swift meat

CHICAGO, June 28 (Reuters) – A Colorado meat company is expanding a recall of beef due to possible contamination by E.coli O157:H7 bacteria after an investigation found 18 illnesses may be linked to the meat, the company and the U.S. Agriculture Department said on Sunday.

Greeley, Colorado-based JBS-Swift Beef Co is voluntarily expanding its June 24 recall to include about 380,000 lbs of assorted beef products, for a total recall of about 421,000 lbs, USDA and the company said.

The affected beef was produced on April 21 and was distributed nationally and internationally.

“The contamination may have come from further processing by other companies,” Chandler Keys, JBS spokesman, said on Sunday.

USDA said the recalled products are typically used for steaks and roasts rather than ground beef. However, it said some of the beef may have been processed into ground products by other companies.

It is unlikely the recall will be expanded further, and JBS will be contacting customers that received the beef to learn how the product was distributed, said Keys.

The contamination was investigated by USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service in cooperation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

E.coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacteria that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and, in severe cases, kidney failure. The very young, seniors, and persons with weak immune systems are at the most risk.

Consumers with questions can call 1-800-685-6328.

JBS Swift is a unit of Brazilian meat company JBS S.A. (JBSS3.SA). (Reporting by Bob Burgdorfer; editing by Mohammad Zargham)
