And on Sunday between 1 and 4 p.m. children can decorate cookies. I think we’ll shoot for the cookie decoration activity seeing as how Bubba would probably eat the beads. Click here for more info =)

And while we’re talking about FREE events, don’t forget about the Do-It-Herself workshop at Home Depot that I posted about here!

Kohl’s Email Alerts – Receive $5 Coupon!


Our internet connection was out all day today. It's amazing how much a person can get done around the house when there is no internet! But when I was finally able to log into my gmail, I was greeted with this =)

I signed up to receive sale alerts from Kohl’s and today I got an email containing a coupon for $5! And the best part is there is no minimum purchase amount, so you can get some clearance items for $5, present your coupon, and walk out of there having paid nothing. Click here to sign up =)


Use Your KFC Coupons at El Pollo Loco!


This is the last KFC post for the night, I swear! El Pollo Loco will be honoring KFC's FREE meal coupons on Mother's Day. Just bring in your coupon and you will receive a 2 piece meal with your choice of 2 small sides, 2 tortillas, and fresh salsa. Click over to Dealicious Mom's post to see the video issued by El Pollo Loco ~ it's pretty funny!

KFC FREE Meal Update


We tried to go get 3 FREE meals from KFC tonight but were told it would be a 30 minute wait. The place was packed with people waiting! I figured the response would be huge but it was crazy! KFC realized it was more than they could handle as well, and will no longer be accepting the coupons. They will, however, issue a raincheck. This is what their website said:

"We are so sorry, but due to the overwhelming response to our FREE Kentucky Grilled Chicken™ meal coupon, we can no longer redeem the free coupon at this time. But we will honor our commitment to giving you a free Kentucky Grilled Chicken meal.

Please visit a participating KFC restaurant for a rain check form. Complete the form, attach your original coupon , and give it to the KFC restaurant manager or postmark per the form’s instructions, by May 19, 2009, and we’ll send you a rain check for your free Kentucky Grilled Chicken meal at a later date, plus a free Pepsi with our compliments. Your participating KFC restaurant will provide you with the form you need.

Please note that the redemption periods of the rain checks will vary. All other terms and conditions of the original free Kentucky Grilled Chicken coupon will apply."

FREE Chocolate Every Friday Through September!


We generally don't have chocolate in our house because I can't be trusted around it. Now that I'm thinking about it, I may have to break into one of those Hershey's Bliss bars I got for FREE at Target. This promotion won't be good for me. Or my hips.

Every Friday from now until September, if you are one of the first 250,000 people to register here, you will get a coupon in the mail for a FREE chocolate bar! You have to register between 9:00 a.m. and 11:59 a.m., and each household can get up to four coupons.

Reminder: Stamp Increase on May 11th


Just a friendly reminder that postage goes up on May 11th, so you may want to stock up on some Forever stamps now while the prices is still $.42. Click here to read my original post =)

More Cheap/FREE Eats!

I love how my blog seems to be revolving so much about food lately. You definitely won’t starve if you hang out here ;-)


Einstein Bagels: Every Friday in May, you can get a FREE bagel if you ask for one before 11 a.m. And if you take in this coupon, you can get 3 FREE bagels when you buy 3. Click here to find a location close to you =)
(Thanks Thrifty Mom!)


Arby’s: Text the word ROASTBURGER to 27297 and you will get a text back that is good for a FREE Roastburger with any drink purchase. I did this last time they had this promotion, and it worked (and the burger was delicious)!


Starbucks: I never get anything from Starbucks because it’s too dang expensive and because their coffee is s-t-r-o-n-g. But it is my iced coffee season, so I may not be able to pass this deal up. Until June 29, you can get a Grande Iced Coffee with Milk for $1.95.


Eat’n Park: Use this coupon to get a FREE slice of strawberry pie with any dinner purchase. Click here to find a location close to you =)

More FREE Eats for Mother’s Day!

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be eating good on Mother’s Day. I posted about the FREE breakfast at Ikea and frozen yogurt at T.C.B.Y., and here are two more!

Bob Evans: Print out this coupon to get a FREE slice of pie after 4 p.m.
(Thanks Freebie Blogger!)


McDonalds: Purchase one breakfast value meal, and get one for FREE. This offer is only good while breakfast is being served, around 10:30 or 11:00. As always, you may want to call before you go to see if your closest McDonalds is participating =)

And don't forget about the other Mother's Day deals I posted about here!

My Acme and Target Trips – 4/5 and 4/6


Total Out-of-Pocket: $10.49
Total Saved: $12.74

4 boxes of General Mills cereal - $10

= 4/$9

2 Quaker Snacks - $2
- $.50 MC à doubled to $1
= 2/$1

Kellogg’s Corn Pops - $1.49 w/in-ad coupon
- $1/1 MC
= 1/$.49

For the above, the total was $10.49, and then for buying 4 boxes of General Mills cereal, I received a voucher for a FREE milk! It wasn’t my intention to do the General Mills deal because the Kellogg’s deal is much thriftier. But I only had one Kellogg’s MC that wasn’t for Frosted Mini Wheats, and sadly, they were not included in the $1.49 deal. And with Bubba going through a box of cereal every two days, I needed to stock up!

The trial size Axe shower gel and Nature’s Source cleaner snuck into the picture somehow but they were Target purchases. So I’ll cover them next =)


Total Out-of-Pocket: $17.76
Minus a $5 Target giftcard: $12.76
Total saved: $24.30

2 Axe shower gel, trial size - $.99
- (2) $1/1 MC

Nature’s Source Cleaner - $2.99
- $1/1 MC
- $1/1 Target coupon (attached to the cleaner)
= $.99

Pampers, Jumbo Pack - $9.74
- $1/1 MC
- $2/1 Target coupon (in a mailer)
= $6.74

2 Bliss Chocolate Bars - $.99 each
- (2) $1/1 Target coupon

2 Mac & Cheese crackers - $1.79
- (2) $1/1 Target coupon
= 2/$1.58

Market Pantry Apple Juice - $1.84

Banana Boat sunscreen, trial size - $.99
- $1/1 MC

2 Purell Hand Sanitizer - $.99 each

4 Fiber One Toaster Pastries - $1.79 each
- $.50/1 MC
= 4/$6.66
- $5 Target giftcard for buying 4 Fiber One products
= 4/$1.66

I found all of the Target printables here =)

So for both trips, my combined total was $28.25 out-of-pocket, $23.25 when you subtract the Target giftcard. And my total amount saved was $37.04!

FREE Cinnabon Roll for Nurses – 5/6 to 5/12

FREE Samples from Walmart!

I hope everyone is enjoying all of the awesome samples that Walmart is consistently offering! I know I am =) Here are two more that are up for grabs!

FREE sample of Pull-Ups: These will come in handy if/when we decide to start potty training Bubba. We should probably get on that some time soon.

FREE Cottonelle Toilet Paper and Wipes

FREE Scrubbing Bubbles Gift Pack!


I generally love to clean. The only chores I don’t enjoy are laundry (but only because our washer and dyer are in the basement where giant, hopping spiders live), and cleaning the toilet (well, just for obvious reasons). Hubby to sweet enough to pick up the slack in those two areas, so this FREEBIE will be just for him ;-)

The first 3,000 people who request a gift pack here, will receive one full-size sample of Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel. It will be mailed out by July 15 =)



Yet another reason to love Oprah – she gives us FREE food! Oprah teamed up with KFC and from now until 9:59 CT tomorrow, May 6th, you can download a coupon to get a FREE Kentucky Grilled Chicken meal. It includes two pieces of grilled chicken, 2 sides, and a biscuit. Sweet!

Click here to download the coupon =)

FREE Chick-n-Strips Tomorrow at Chick-fil-A!


In honor of National Teacher’s Day, teachers and educators can go to participating Chick-fil-A restaurants, and receive FREE 3 count Chick-n-Strips. You will have to show your identification, so Hubby, if you are reading, you can't pretend to be a teacher to get some free grub ;-) It's probably a good idea to call your closest store to see if they will be participating. Click here for more info =)

Allure FREEBIES until 5/7


Every day Allure will be giving away FREE products to the first 500 people who register at noon. This is like the Gillette razor deal though where you will have to be fast to get these! Click here to see the line-up of products =)
(Thanks Coupon Cravings!)

Kmart Promotion: Receive $10 Gift Card!


This will works nicely with the double coupons promotion at Kmart this week! From today until May 16th, if you spend $35 on Procter & Gamble products in one transaction, you will receive a $10 Kmart gift card by mail. You can find the offer form at your store, and you can see the full list of qualifying products here.

If you received a Sunday paper yesterday, there was a P&G insert in there, so any of those coupons would work great with this promotion! I plan on stocking up on Pampers diapers! I’ll post my stash tomorrow =)
