Nick Jr. Pumpkin Stencils!! Yo Gabba Gabba etc

Go here to find lots of cool stencils for pumpkin carving!!
Inclueds Blue, Dora, Diego and more!


Mommy Monday it's the Season for chocolate

I don't know about you, but we are eating quite a bit of chocolate at our house, due to the holiday Halloween season approaching!

But, if you happen to NOT have enough chocolate in your stash, you can get a box of FREE truffles from Haydee Chocolatier here.

Or if Pizza is more your style, you can get Red Baron Pizzas at walgreens for $2.50 and use a $1 coupon found here.

Myself, we just went to Target this morning and bought 3 Digiorno Brand pizzas and got a $5 target gift card! We bought six, and got two $5 gift cards. I think I am going to use those as part of a Christmas gift for relatives that live out of state. Gift cards are great for mailing, as they don't weigh alot!! :)

I also went to Fred Meyer (kroger) and bought some more Frosted mini wheats (buy 3 get $3 catalina back). On the back of the maple and brown sugar ones, there are movie token thingies. You can collect 5 and get your choice of free DVD's. There are some great kids movies, including classics like Chitty Chitty Bang bang. So now, I have 5 tokens and can get a free kids movie to use for Christmas present!!

The hershey's candy that used to be 2 for $5 at Fred Meyer (kroger), is now 2 for $4. So you can get 8 bags of candy for halloween and get a $5 catalina back, so the bags of candy are around $1.25 each. That beats giving out those tootsie rolls that everyone else hands out that just end up collecting in the bottom of the trick or treat bag!

->Sneak Peek DEAL for KROGER stores:
the Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks and Pop Secret popcorn catalina deals are returning in November. I bought 4 of each last time and received $2.50 OYNO for the fruit snacks and $3 OYNO for the popcorn, so it may be the same deal this time around. Someone on SD got this info from customer service.

Some more freebies for moms:

Order the Free Kitchen Idea Book and Planning Guide is a full color book of ideas for making your dream home a reality. This book is jam packed with ideas for kitchens, baths, home office, entertainment centers, bedrooms, laundry rooms and more. Plus, we provide information on KraftMaid's product selection, cabinet construction and kitchen planning tips – all for FREE. This book is a must when planning your new kitchen!

--> remember to get your free Taco Bell taco tomorrow (Tuesday, October 28) between 2:00 and 6:00pm.

STOP and get your free redbox movie with this code today only: 93NCA5
You can get one for the kids and one for you if you have two different debit/credit cards to use.
One free rental per card number. Then it is free if you return it by tomorrow evening or keep it for two nights and only pay $1, its up to you!

Paper Plate Masks Make a silly, scary mask using paper plates and cardboard egg cartons. Cut eye holes in a large paper plate. Cut apart the cups of an egg carton and arrange them on the plate to make a nose, beard, bumps. When you have an arrangement you like, use glue or masking tape to attach the cups in place. Paint the mask with finger paints and add facial features. Let the paint dry. Punch a hole in each side of the paper plate and string a piece of elastic or string through each hole to go around the head.

Paper Plate Spiders Paint paper plates black using finger paints. Let the paint dry. Using white paint, add eyes. You can also use the round paper reinforces used to reinforce the holes on 3 ring binder paper. Using black pipe cleaners, have the children bend legs and glue to the bottom of the plate.

Gumdrop Spiders Cut two black pipe cleaners into eight pieces. Buy black licorice gumdrops. Insert four pipe cleaner spider legs on each side of a gumdrop.

Ever tried to get to Big lots before their new items are sold out on the very first day??
I have and it can be frustrating!

Now, you can go online and grab those high demand items from Big lots!! As of 8AM today, you can shop online!

"What happens when Big Lots merchandise Buyers find an unbelievably, ridiculously great deal – but there's not enough for all our stores? Simple. They become the Big Lots online deal of the day.One amazing limited quantity deal at 8 AM ET every day.Of course, we may throw a curve ball from time to time by posting earlier, later or by posting more then one deal. While they're available, it's shopping nirvana"

(perfect for using on rebate items for walgreens oct easy saver)

If your family goes through alot of cereal, like ours does, check out the new coupons on my sidebar coupon widget. there is $1 off any kelloggs, coupons for trix, apple cinnamon cheerios, Kellogg's frosted mini-wheats- including the new flavors of strawberry delight and blueberry muffin.

Sick Friday, hoping for a better monday, Bad Mommy Pizza blunder and Walgreens Shopping success story

Sorry i didnt post fun friday for the kids but my 6 year old was sick with a cough all night on thursday night and so she stayed home from school friday. I have been giving her the new triaminic thin strips that we got last week for free at walgreens. It takes me all day to get her to take any liquid medicine, so these are perfect for her! She just puts the very small thin strip in her mouth and then i let her drink some juice afterwards as a reward. Takes less than 30 seconds now to medicate her :)
(You can still go to the triaminic website to print $2 off any triaminic product)

So.. since we basically had a "case of the Monday's" today on a friday, that means Monday will be great, right??

Tomorrow, I am going to make my first Kroger's shopping trip. (stores include Fred meyer, ralph's, fry's, etc). Feeling "iffy" on this, but we will see how it goes...
Supposedly, if I use my coupon to buy one get one free on a glade gel warmer for under $2, I will get two $4 catalinas to use on my next purchase...buy a scented oil warmer for $4.99 minus a $2 coupon and a bogo, and get two $4 cats

Well, tonight was school fundraiser night at Papa John's. I decided to order online, not realizing until I placed the order, that there was no comment box or any way for them to know I was participating in the fundraiser.. UMMMM. Did I mention I had a sick child and a baby to take care of all day? That's my excuse! well, you know what they say about good intentions..oh well.
I must admit it was the BOGO pizza code that enticed me to order online, whoops :)

By the way, the code is "chase" to get a free large 3 topping pizza when you order a large 3 topping pizza. Or "amex" to Buy x-tra large specialty pizza & get free large original crust 1-topping pizza.

My shopping at Walgreens tonight went slightly better than the pizza fundraiser fiasco!

Since employees got 25% off friday only, I saved all the more expensive rebate items for today's shopping trip and even got the Revitalift item continued from last month's rebate book.
Of course, I used a bunch of the awesome new HIGH DOLLAR coupons from the right@ home website. There are coupons for all but one of the rebate items needed for #27 in the October walgreens easy saver booklet. They range from $10 off the automatic shower cleaner, to $2 off Pledge, Scrubbing bubbles stuff, and more!! There is $30 0f coupons on there and you should be able to print them twice...

So anyways, I paid around $25 OOP, got over $27 back in RR's and will get over $25 in rebates(havent figured the exact amount yet.) I even got $1.18 back in change on one transaction!!

I made $2.50 on each oral b cross action toothbrush I bought, for just one example of the great deals i got today. The total amount saved in mfg coupons alone was around $105, not counting any of the IVC/walgreens store coupons!

One of my transactions should have been .84 cents, but ended up being $2.04 instead because they forgot to give me the discount. whoops...

Hope you all have good plans for the weekend. We have errands to run, must replace dead vacuum, get some sewing notions, a few groceries.. and I promised my hubby I would make onion rings. He reminded me at 8:30pm- yeah, I'll get right on it.

Mommy Monday

Buy two French's French Fried Onions products and receive a FREE copy of Mom's Best Meals cookbook. Mail your receipt by October 31, 2008 to

Dream of quitting your job to stay home with the kids? The first step is understanding your expenses. The second? Seeing if your family can cover them comfortably on just one salary.
Use the Parents.com Stay at Home Calculator. It helps you see if this would be an option for you and your family. Great tool!

Arm & Hammer has lots of printable coupons, including ones for laundry detergent that's on sale next week at walgreens (oct12).

-->Here is a great beauty tip for moms using Baking Soda:
Add a tablespoon of baking soda to a creamy face wash a few times a week. "Baking soda is a gentle exfoliant that removes oil from your pores," says NYC derm Sapna Westley.

Other beauty tips-

Mist your face with a refreshing tonic for a pick-me-up anytime. Fill a 3 oz spray bottle with water and squeeze a fresh orange, and add the zest from the peel. "The citrus replenishes your skin and the aroma perks you up," says Spa expert Ole Henrikson.

Ease neck and shoulder tension:
Roll a few bags of chamomile tea in a setamed hand towel(dipped in hot water and wrung out). Wrap it around your neck and rub it from side to side. "The tea scent relaxes your muscles, and the heat may help to loosen up any stiffness", says Susan Knoplfer, Miami chiropractor. "Tilt your right ear toward your shoulder and hold it there for five seconds. Repeat on the left side, this undoes tension in the lower neck so you may actually feel looser all over."

Here are some photos of my 6 year old having a whole lotta fun a few weekends ago, and it was all FREE! (minus a couple quarters for the "rides")

Here she is, just leaving Lowe's after building her very own Pirate ship. She just loves her goggles and had lots of fun as you can see by her face:

Next stop, was the mall, where she rode on some little Rides:

"Maybe if I stick my tongue out, it will go faster!"

(There was a little girl, with no parents in sight that I could see, sitting on the rides, so we shared a quarter with her too.)

Next stop, Free Basketball, carnival style

"way to go!"

Of course, she had to try on at least 3 different halloween accessories on her head at one time!

Fun Friday for Kids M&M's anyone?

My kids are having a four day weekend, so Friday crept up on me today. I thought it was still Thursday since they didnt have school yesterday or today! whoops :)

well with the winter season coming up, we have been stocking up on cold medicine and tylenol for the kids. I got three of them now, so we will be using a lot of it I expect!

Until Saturday, you can get 3 bottles of Tylenol cold medicine for kids or Motrin for a great deal at Walgreens. On sale for $4.99 each, there is also a $1.50 off coupon in the October Easy saver booklet and you can get a couple more $1 tylenol coupons on the tylenol.com website. Once you print your coupon, click the back button 3 times to print your second $1 coupon. That is $8.47 for 3 bottles, plus you will get a $5 Register Reward back, good on your next purchase. So it is less than $4 for 3 bottles of tylenol. YOu can take $2 off the price of each bottle of Motrin as well, if you use the coupon in the walgreens coloring book- found near the pharmacy, and use the $1 coupon on the motrin.com website. If you are new to walgreens and need more info, leave a comment and i will respond.

This coming week from Oct 5 through the 11th, M&Ms are on sale for 2/$4. There is a $1 off 2 in the October walgreens easysaver book, and there were also $1 off 2 coupons in the newspaper last weekend. So you can get two bags of M&Ms for your kids(or yourself) for only $2! IF you have a walgreens rebate card, you can also earn $4 for 4 bags. So that is 4 bags for free after rebate!

YOu could even use Rice Krispies you bought with the coupon I posted last friday, to make cool halloween treats with m&ms for decoration. OR make cupcakes, line them up like a centipede. Use rope licorice for legs on both sides of the cupcakes, and decorate the tops with M&M patterns on the "back" of the centipede. Spoooky

Make Gingerbread houses out of graham crackers and frosting (there are coupons for frosting on our coupon sidebar widget). Use the M&M's in halloween colors to create a spook house!

My kids make these every year for halloween and Christmas!

GO HERE to see literally TONS of cool Treats that you can make for Halloween with the kids and M&Ms and other goodies!!

Alien Invasion Cookies, Dancing Bones brownies, Frankenstein goodie bags, and so much more, perfect for at home treats or for sharing at any party.

Here is the link for ALL TREATS USING M&M's

You know how my girls love pirate stuff, so I am sure we will be trying this Pirate Cake.

So far though, we havent managed to keep the m&m's around long enough to use them for decoration! Four bags have already been all used up. We are going tomorrow to get 4 more for FREE :)

Hey, we might have enough to make these cute crawlin' critters, because they dont require that many m&m's :) Picture shown at the top of this post.

What you'll need:
1 bag MILKY WAY® Brand FUN SIZE® Bars
1 bag M&M'S® Brand MINIS® Milk Chocolate Candies Halloween Mini Packs
1 bag SNICKERS® Brand FUN SIZE® Bars
