***UPDATE***  This giveway has ended.

At NOON est today, Gain is giving away 5,000 FREE 11oz. bottles of their Gain Original Dishwashing Liquid on Facebook.  Just go here  at noon for a chance to get your free bottle.  Gain has been giving away freebies for couple of weeks and I was able to snag one so far.  I haven’t received it yet, but I am definitley looking forward to getting it. Freebies are great, but full-sized freebies are awesome!!! 

There is also a $1.00 off coupon for Gain dishwashing liquid in the 8/29/10 P&G Saver.  I hear that Walmart has the small bottles for $1.00  making them free with a coupon.  Please note that not all areas may not get the same coupons, but even if you got a lower value coupon, it would still mean you can get the small bottles for really cheap.




Kraft’s is donating up to 20 million meals with their  Huddle to Fight Hunger  campaign. They will donate one meal for every e-mail address entered.   You can also donate  when you “Like” them on Facebook, Tweet about them on Twitter, or watch one of their videos on YouTube.

There are also some pretty good coupons  for $1/2 Kraft cheese, $1/2 Kraft mayo, $1/2 Maxwell House coffee and $1/2 Oscar Meyer lunchmeat.



Please check out my videos on You Tube.   There are a lot of great hauls, coupon tips, and freebies showcased in my videos.  While you are visiting my channel please subscribe, rate and comment.

Proctor and Gamble has a new coupon savings booklet. Purchase $50 worth of P&G  products  between 8/20/10 and 12/31/10 and receive a coupon book with over a $100 in coupons.

The last P&G savings book contained some coupons that enabled me to get free Bounty paper towels and some $5.00 Olay Regenerist coupons. I scored some facial cleanser for $.99  at Target. Check out the video here. If you the find right sales and use the right coupons, you don’t have to spend $50.00 OOP (Out of Pocket) to qualify for your book. I spent $28.00 OOP to get my last book. 

Just go here to print your rebate form. You can also see which coupons will be included in the booklet and view all of P&G products here. 

First “Like” Walgreens  on their facebook page here and then you will get the promo code to get your free book.

I have wanted to start a blog for several months, but I didn’t have the first clue as to how or where to begin.  I set up my WordPress account and then….NOTHING.  I didn’t know where to go from there.  It seemed as if there was a never ending stream of information on blogging. I found myself overwhelmed with information and writing a post seemed like such a daunting task.  

I had so many grandiose ideas about how I wanted my blog to look and about what I wanted to write about.  I studied other blogs, took a novels worth of notes and even watched tutorials on You Tube.  Initially, all of this  pushed me to do….. NOTHING.  I still could not get moving until … I realized that I  just needed to write about something, anything.  I needed to write without regard to what people would think. I needed to stop being concerned with critisim.  I just needed to write.

There were several bloggers and videographers that offered invaluable insight  which eventually led to my  “blogging ephiphany”. I have to say thank you to SPARKWISDOM on You Tube.  She is one the most positve and inspiring people I have had the pleasure of encountering.  I have learned so much and scored many a deal thanks to Hip2Save, Totally Target, Money Saving Mom and Couponing to Disney.  All of these ladies have been so inspirational and I want to send them all a giant THANK YOU. 

For now, I intend to write about whatever I feel like writing about. I intend to have fun. I will share things about me, my hobbies, my passions, my frustrations, my loves, my likes and most assuredly my dislikes. For anyone visiting my blog I ask that you please be patient. I will get better. Cut me so slack if my posts are not always eloquent or witty or even reasonable.  At times it may seem that I am all over the place and I probably will be as I try to find my footing with this blogging experience.

I hope you will enjoy this ride with me!
