Healthy you 4/28/11

Taken from Reshaping it all by Candace Cameron Bure

How many times have you reached for junk food that wasn't part of your plan because you justified that it would be a one-time thing? "Just this time" is a mind trap, and although we've fallen into that trap several times, we keep telling ourselves the same lie. Recognize the thought, and fight it.

 Submit yourselves, then to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

When we resist temptation, it eventually leaves. I promise you that. I mean seriously, you aren't still craving that chocolate bar you rejected last month are you? The temptation eventually left.

Now she isn't saying that these foods are evil. Its just the pull the food has on us. When we are desiring these foods more than we desire God, It becomes a sin.

I'm struggling this week. Feeling kind of in the dumps and this is what makes me want to eat. I'm a chocolate kind of person. Here's a recipe I make that makes me feel less guilty about eating the chocolate. Its about 100 calories a cupcake with a little whip cream on top.

1 box sugar free cake mix ( you can use any flavor but I choose chocolate)
1 can pumpkin
1/2 cup water

mix and put into cupcake pans. bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. (If you have good cupcake pans you don't even have to spray them)
makes 24 cupcakes ( you can also make the smaller cupcakes and have 2 for 100 calories. This is what I like so I feel like I can eat more)

No More Rack

Awesome! I received my Puma watch I posted a few weeks ago here from No More Rack last week. It came quickly and with all my credits it was only $15. I got the credits automatically when No More Rack would just add them to my account from different Holiday promotions they were having. I really didn't even know I had that many credits.

Well, today I got another Puma watch in the mail. I checked my credit card and they only charged me for one watch. So I called them to see what they wanted me to do with this second watch, since it was obviously a mistake. At first they said they would credit me $10 on my No More Rack account for me to ship it back. I didn't want to do that since their items are random and I wasn't sure I would see something again I wanted. So they called me back later and said they have been having a problem with this happening and go ahead and keep the watch! So I have 2 Puma watches I got for $15. I will most likely sell the other one or maybe re-gift it. I'm not sure. But I thought I would share with you guys. How great is that (:

Check out No More Rack for your self here. Its free to sign up. Just check every day for the items they have and maybe you'll find something you want one day.

Follow me Tuesday 4/26/11

I think this is going to be one of the last videos til after Summer. We may do a few as things come up. Also if you havent noticed, we probably won't be posting as much on the blog. As we see great deals most likely they will just get put on the Facebook page.

Follow me Tuesday 4/19/11 'coupons, coupons, coupons!'

In honor of Good Friday and Easter (just as important as Christmas in our house!) we want to leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling. We are at Target now, by the time this posts anyway, leaving coupons around the store for you. Our binders are busting at he rims and I hate seeing good coupons go to waste! You don't have to use these coupons at Target. Target is just my favorite shopping place so that's why I decided to leave them there.

Easter Egg Hunt for Couponers!

If you want to leave a fuzzy warm feeling for someone this wonderful Holiday you can leave a few coupons you aren't going to use too! I'm telling you, you guys don't want to miss this. Have fun! (:

Have a great Good Friday and Easter

I'm leaving these coupons at Target in Davenport on Elmore street. I encourage you to leave some of your own coupons in your own towns if you're not from the QC area. (:

Just back from Target. Just wanted to let you guys know the areas I left coupons. I made it to the Make-up, Toothpaste and that whole section of personal care items, Baby, freezer, cleaning, beginning of food section. At the food section my kids were ready to be done. They did great helping me post the coupons at the beginning.  Have fun and Happy Easter!

Healthy you 4/14/11

 I signed up for these emails from Made to Crave. This one really hits the spot at my house. Go here to view and sign up for yourself.

I will give you a glimpse into my life. This weekend I was trying to get the house ready for our open on Sunday. We had a lot going on so I didn't get started til after dinner. I was really bitter because I felt like I was the only one trying to get the house sold. I had asked my husband to hang some pictures and fix a leaky faucet. He hadn't done it. Now I was trying to get the house together as everyone else was sitting down watching TV. I decided I wasn't going to do anymore. If no one else cared neither would I. I still hadn't shampooed and there were some spots that really needed it. I went to my room to just read by myself. I had just gotten 'Reshaping It All' by Candace Cameron Bure. So as I'm reading I'm thinking how I just want to go down stairs and eat something. But I keep reading. She talks about just that. How we start to feel emotional about something and then we turn to food instead of God.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11
So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. Galations 5:16

I did apologize the next day to my husband and thankfully no one came to the open. (The floors were really that bad!) Next time I will not dwell in my bitterness!

Hope everyone else is having a good week (:

Homeschool Wednesday 4/13/11

I love the freedom you have homeschooling. Not only can you teach your children above and beyond what the normal schools do, you can have fun doing it too! Today we finally finished our compost! We did a vermicompost back in October(we did Botany for science) and you are supposed to harvest it after 2 months. OOPS. It took us 3 days but we finally did it and started our next one.
This is the done product.

Toby searching for worms! Such a good compost harvester

Malaki and Toby tearing paper strips to make the new compost. Malaki has a fever and he's still helping out. Such a good sport!

Follow me Tuesday 4/12/11

We filmed outside of Walgreens last week. They won't allow us to film inside the store. Make sure you look for the clearance bins when your in the stores. You may have a good coupon to stack with it. When theres Register Rewards try and use the least amount of money you can. So what you want to do, if you're buying more than one thing that has a Register Reward, is buy the one item and then use that Register Reward for the next. So I bought the soda last week. I used the $3 Register Reward to buy my toothpaste. I also had $.75 off coupon so I was only paying $2.24. So in this case I need to make sure I'm buying something else to cover that 'overage'. I could have bought the Purex at $1.99. I decided to get the candy for free. You can save these 'filler items' for Easter baskets.

**note correction on the Purex. You don't need a filler item when you are using a Manufacture coupon and Walgreens coupon. Steph had $1 off manufacture coupon and a Walgreens in ad coupon to make the Purex $.99. She didn't have to purchase anything else at that point.

You can use an In Ad Walgreen's coupon, Walgreen's booklet coupon, and Manufacture coupon all for one item! For example, Walgreen's had Progresso soup on sale one week with an in ad coupon. I used the in ad coupon, a Manufacture coupon and there was a coupon in the Walgreen's booklet and I got the soup for $.50/can.

I hope this video helps a little. It was hard to do outside with the cars and people in the parking lot. I apologize!

No more rack

Are you part of the No More Rack community yet? They send out daily deals for discounted items. I had never actually bought anything until today. I had a few credits built up. When you join you get $10 and on some Holidays they send you credits to buy things. I love Puma products. Today they have a cute Puma watch for only $30 and $2 shipping. Some times they include free shipping too. With my credits and shipping I got the watch for $15. How awesome! My watch cracked a few weeks ago..and it was a crystal, very nice watch. So I haven't been wearing it and I am a big watch person. I love to know what time it is.
Here is a picture of the cute watch! If you just keep an eye after you sign up on the things the have you're bound to find something one day you like! Go here and you should get a $10 credit.

Giveaway/Review Friday

I think I'm going to do away with Giveaway Review Friday. I can't keep asking companies to partner with me for giveaways if I'm only going to have 12 or less people enter the Giveaways. Companies do the giveaways to get their product name out there and when theres only a few people entering the giveaways it doesn't look worth their while. I'm going to do away with it at least through the summer probably. Maybe we will do a few here and there (:

What kinds of things would you want to see in the future for giveaways?

Tape, Tape, Tape

I'm thinking about the little things to put in the kids Easter baskets. We treat Easter just the same as Christmas. Its equally important right! Christmas is the birth of Christ and Easter is the Resurrection of Christ. I already have all the big presents for the kids. I really wish I had gotten the electrical tape at Menards when they had it for free. My kids love tape. My youngest has been putting it all over his arms and face so he 'looks cool'. Now I need to find some tape deals. Why can't I think ahead? That's a key for save the most when you think ahead!

Whats everyone else doing for Easter Baskets? Any good ideas?

                  So as I was watching the show this wednesday - and if you were like me and thinking, "This is crazy, I though I was doing really good - how do you get all that free stuff?!"
                 Well Jill Cataldo, a woman I had a chance to see twice at the Moline Library, has the answers.
She did an evaluation of the shopping trips and explains how the most likely sanario for the deals is FRAUD.

There are several types of coupon fraud and I wanted to list them out so that everyone is infomed we want to coupon the right way - not 'steal' the items which is what you essentially do when using coupons in not thier intended manner:
- DO NOT COPY coupons (from the paper or from the internet)
- Look at quantity and size (4oz MEANS not 1oz travel size) look for "travel size excluded"
- Use the right coupon for the right product

The registers typically have an override button and will accept any coupon even if the item is NOT THERE - it's your responsability as a consumer who enjoys good deals to pay attention to using coupons correctly.  If not.... it could be the end of manufacturers putting out thier coupons at all :( Or stores who ammend thier policies to not accept coupons that are put out.

Review/Giveaway Friday 4/8/11

 In honor of the drive in opening this weekend we are doing a Review/Giveaway for the 61 Drive in. My family looks forward to the new season every year for the drive in. We have been going for almost 10 years now!

The Drive in is located Located 5 miles South of Maquoketa on Highway 61. Exit 153
     The gates open at 6:30 and the movie starts around 8 pm. Most people go early and enjoy some family time before the movie starts. They have a train ride for the kids, swing sets, people bring foot balls, playing cards, etc.
This is the caboose of the train. Theres a swing set and sand box up by the movie screen also. And I believe a volleyball net towards the back of the field.

So this is the way it works, if you haven't been. You find a spot when you get there to park. You can play around or just visit til the movie starts. Once the movie starts you tune your radio to the station they direct you to when you pay and the movie runs through your radio. You can either sit in your car or bring chairs and sit in front of your vehicle.

The Drive in has a concession stand and restrooms. The concession prices are very reasonable and you can go here to print coupons. Also if you buy a gift card for $50 you get $10 more!!
Entrance for the movie is:

Adults 13 & OVER: $7.00
Children 5-12: $3.00
Children 4 & UNDER: FREE

This is my favorite part! You get 2 new movies for this price. You can not go to the theatre and pay this. The movies usually get over around midnightish. It depends on how long the 2 movies are. This is the only way we watch movies before they come out on DVD.

Thanks to the Owner-Dennis Voy for allowing me to giveaway 2 entry tickets for the Drive in. He also has included Free Popcorn vouchers for basically the entire summer! How awesome is this!! Here is the link to the Drive in's website if you want more info. Maybe we can even pair up for some more giveaways to my favorite family pass time (:

Make sure to look for him if you win, let him know you won tickets from QC Coupon deals and thank him for pairing up with us. (:
To enter this giveaway just comment what your favorite family pass time is. Make sure you enter on the blog, not facebook. If you aren't already following us make sure you do please. This is a local giveaway so please make sure you are in this area if you're entering. Leave your email address for me to contact you if you are a winner. Contest will end at Midnight on Sunday 4/10/11. But if you want to check out the drive in this weekend heres whats playing.
This opening weekend its
 LIMITLESS - PG13 [8:00 PM]

Follow me Tuesday 4/5/11

We took Lisa coupon shopping for this Follow me Tuesday video. Now it is very hard to do this. We talked about a lot more than whats on this video. I also would like to say, our original winner couldn't make it after all. It is very hard to get 3 busy people to the store at the same time with out kids. Then I ended up with one of mine I got ahold of Lisa and she was able to line up a sitter for her daycare kids and her own (Thanks Donna!). She had a days notice!

So we talked about getting a binder, organizing coupons, where to get coupons, price points, pairing up store coupons with manufacture coupons, and having a plan. These are all things we have talked about on the blog. We will have to also do another shopping trip with Lisa later on. It is a lot to take in and go over in a just a few hours. This shopping trip is not an extreme couponing type experience. We are not extreme couponers. We coupon to save what we can for our family. We get what we need and try to get what we think is enough til the next sale.

The main things we talked about with Lisa that were not in the video is to try and never pay for toothpaste(which ,by the way is free at Walgreens this week! If you got a paper this week its actually a money maker.), body wash, deodorant, etc. Walgreens and CVS do Register rewards and Extra Care bucks that you never have to pay for these items. If you need them try and not pay over $1 for these items and when you can get them for free stock up for what you think you will need to last a few months.

Know your price points. We saw silly bands on sale for $1.48. This is an ok price for Disney silly bands but if your kids don't care about the trade mark items, you can find these for around $1 at Walmart. We actually noticed a lot of 'clearanced' items that were only a few cents cheaper than regular price.

Check end caps. Usually this is where the clearance items are located

Don't match the picture to the item on the coupon. As long as you are matching what the words say, it doesn't matter if you get the item pictured on the coupon.

Make sure to pull the blinky and tear pad coupons. Most of the time its best to save these for later. Usually they will be cheaper when the tear pads and blinkys are gone.

Also most stores will price match. So if you have a favorite store or dont have, lets say, Target near you. Walmart will price match Targets prices. Most of the time you don't even need an ad. Just tell them its 'this price' at Target and they will ring it up. You can also use coupons on top of the price match!

Review/Giveaway Friday 4/1/11

     Happy Friday! April Fools day on top of it. So this weeks Follow me Tuesday video I showed you how to make laundry soap. I would like to follow up with a review. I've washed all my laundry this week with my new laundry soap. As far as performance I feel like it works just the same on my clothes as the store bought soap. The only thing I really don't like is that its kind of chunky once it sits for a day. It's very different from your normal laundry soap.

     The process of making the soap was very easy and quick. Overall it only took a few minutes. So it just depends on how far you are willing to go to save a buck. It is by far cheaper than buying the laundry soap. You can also ad different fragrances to it if you miss the smells of your other laundry soaps.
     For me I think I will still buy my other laundry soaps when theres a great sale and I will use this soap when I can't find a good sale.
     Now to the fun part. I will be giving away 2 sample bottles of the soap I made. These will be about 2 load uses. You can see for yourself how it looks and if it cleans to your liking.
