FREE Entertainment

It is pouring down rain today which made me think of some of my favorite go-to sites for FREE kids' entertainment. What sites do you love to make bad weather days fun?

For the very small set, I love It features a wide variety of colorful, interactive games that even the youngest babies can play. Each game is designed to be responsive to ANY KEY being pressed on the keyboard. They learn that by pressing the keys something cool will happen.
(Hey! That's cause and effect!)
They have recently added some new games for young preschoolers like Alphabet, Numbers, and Colors. Super cool! is a site for all ages that allows you to search craft activities by age group, time needed, and even materials to allow you to have a great time without needing to buy any craft supplies.
This is an awesome site for holiday craft fun, snacks, and more!

Download this FREE Where the Wild Things Are Activity Book and tame your wild things! Great activity PDF for the school-age can make a Wild Things Mobile, play Wild Things bingo, or create your own Wild Things place. Great prompts for some in-depth conversations.

The Real Deal: Only $3.33 per package after SCRs!
Sorry readers, this is not quite the phenomenal deal I was hoping. In all my excitement, I failed to verify the limit on the Huggies rebate. It is a LIMIT ONE rebate. Good deal on one pack, but not the stock-up-fest I originally indicated.

Coupon Stacking 101

There is a whole new layer to saving that we haven't explored yet. It is called "coupon stacking" and means taking a regular manufacturer coupon and pairing it with a store-specific coupon for double (or MORE!) savings. You can find these coupons in the weekly flyers, in special in-store coupon booklets, or even print some right from home. My favorite stores for coupon stacking are CVS, Walgreen's, and Target.

EXAMPLE: Target (ad 10/18-10/24)
General Mills Cereal (select varieties)--$1.99
Buy 2 and use $1/2 from the scrollbar
Stack with $1/2 Target coupon here
The Real Deal: Only $0.99 each after coupons

 Pick up Walgreen's & CVS coupons in store. Check the Pharmacy Counter for additional savings booklets. Target's printable coupons are available here.

FREE at Barnes & Noble 10/24/09

Stop by Barnes & Noble today for a FREE small cookie and kid's hot chocolate using this coupon.
Scroll down to coupon 5.

Limit one offer per customer.

Savvy Shopper Tip-Feed them for FREE!

With 16 month old twins who can now polish off an entire kid's meal each and a 3 yr old who doesn't like his brothers to touch his plate, going out to eat can be a HUGE budget breaker. By the time we order 5 meals, drinks, and add in a tip we could have easily gotten nearly an entire week's groceries.

So does that mean we stay home? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Thanks to excellent resources like we can go out to eat without breaking the bank. With a few simple clicks at, I can find out which restaurants in our area are offering "Kids Eat Free"* meals every night of the week! I typed my zip code into the search box at the top of the page, chose a 30 mile radius (if you are from this area you know that it is not uncommon to have to drive a little bit to get ANYWHERE!) to get the most results, and hit "Search". Within seconds, I had 26 detailed results of restaurants that were offering free food for my kiddos TODAY! I think I know what we are having for dinner...

*Offers vary by restaurant. Many have age limits and purchase requirements. recommends calling ahead to verify the offer.

The Children's Place + Facebook= BFF UPDATE

      The Children's Place has to be my all-time FAVORITE store for scoring the best deals on kiddo clothes. I have literally walked out of our local TCP Outlet with heaping bags of merchandise for under $100. What could be better than supercheap kids clothes? Ummm...supercheap kids clothes that actually LAST! Some of my oldest son's TCP items were actually handed down to him from a family friend and still look brand new when the twins wear them. They wash perfectly, wear amazingly, and definitely fit into the savvy shopper budget!
     Right now, if you become a fan of The Children's Place on Facebook you can score a 15% off any regular priced item coupon (in-store only). Simply click on the "Shop" tab and it will be on the bottom right. Also, it appears as though TCP is hosting some sort of $50 giftcard giveaway for their friendly FB fans. No details other than the name of one lucky reader have been released.

Also, the 40% off NOW 50% OFF Fall Sale has begun INCLUDING Halloween costumes!

Savvy Shopper Tip-Be Best Friends with BOGO

BOGOs are a savvy shoppers best friend. BOGO is shorthand for Buy One Get One*. Usually, this means the item is at the lowest price in the cycle unless it is something destined for clearance. The best part (besides being at the lowest price you'll find it!) is that most retailers allow you to use a coupon for both items you are purchasing. This basically DOUBLES the value of ANY coupon you use.

For example, this week at Giant Eagle (10/15-10/21/09):

Buy 2 Nature's Bounty Vitamins BOGO @ $9.99**
-2 $2/1 Multivitam Printable $4.00
(click on the aqua bar above to find and print!)
The Real Deal: $5.99 or only $2.98/bottle!

*It generally means Buy One Get One Free although I have seen many sales featuring BOGO 50% off or similar percentages off so be sure to read the ad carefully.

**Prices vary by product...there are products you can get FREE using this deal!

WOW! Nature's Pride Bread at Giant Eagle

I was so excited last night to discover $0.55 peelies (you know, those little stick on coupons that your cashier always forgets to peel off your product at checkout) on my favorite Nature's Pride Multigrain bread. I feel great feeding my boys their all natural product (no trans fats, no artificial ANYTHING, and no high fructose corn syrup) and my family loves eating it! Delicious chewy texture with just the right amount of seeds and flakes to add some extra flavor to our sandwiches. Best of all the loaves were on sale 2$5!

2 loaves Multigrain bread $5.00
-2 $0.55 (doubled to $1.10 each) $2.30
The Real Deal: Only $1.15/loaf! (This regularly retails for $3.98/loaf I believe)

Savvy Shopper Tip-Start Slow

Start slow! Saving money by shopping sales, stockpiling, and couponing can seem VERY overwhelming at first. Seeing some of the deal scenarios and abbreviations may make your head spin. (I know it did for me!) If you start by creating mini-goals for yourself, saving money can become second nature. Take it one step at a time until you are comfortable with a certain savings method and then add in another one.

My first step was to STOP paying for Health & Beauty items. I made a list of the products we use on a regular basis and noted any brands that do not work for us. Then, I checked out the ads and started picking up the freebies in larger quantities than I would normally buy. This way we have the items we need without having to run to the store at the last minute AND without spending big $$ on them. My current stockpile (which took me about 5 total trips to complete) has been going strong since MARCH 09!

That was my first step. Others have suggested reducing their grocery bill by as little as 10-20% or simply finding additional savings on their favorite brands. What will your first step be?

More Gro Baby Love!

Think cloth diapering is not for you? Try Gro Baby hybrids FOR FREE and let me know what you think! They are offering a FREE Intro Set including their washable shell and DISPOSABLE soaker pads for bloggers who write about their product. Check out my review and see if you want to give them a try!

 THIS DEAL ENDS 10/20/09 at 12pm MST!

So I'm sure you've seen me post about my BIG LOVE for Gro Baby diapers for E & G. They truly are a revolutionary style of diaper that makes cloth diapering quick and convenient even in my crazy household. Well, here is proof that good things can get even BETTER!htt...p://

The Natural Baby Company is now offering BIODEGRADABLE (disposable or flushable!) soaker pads to make taking Gro Baby on the go even simpler! (I cannot thank you enough for this development!) These environmentally -friendly pads simply stick in to the Gro Baby shells and can be flushed (simply tear, shake out contents into the toilet, and throw away the rest), composted, or tossed (they break down after only 50-150 days compared to centuries!) after use. They also use a much healthier amount of gel crystals (3g vs up to 20 in commercial sposies!) to keep them super absorbant without fearing for my kiddos safety. I was lucky enough to be a tester for this product* and I could find absolutely NOTHING that I would have wanted changed. The pads provide excellent coverage and leave no areas of the shell exposed. They contained all messes and even worked out for overnight for my then-one-year-olds. Perfect for travel or just busy days!If you are on the fence about trying cloth diapering or if you want to be more environmentally responsible without putting poo in your washer (yes, this is the STILL the biggest question I get about cloth diapering) give Gro Baby a whirl.
*The Natural Baby Company is offering a FREE set to bloggers who write about this product. Would I have posted this rave review without this offer? ABSOLUTELY! This is just another example of The Natural Baby Co. showing gratitude for all their loyal customers. They truly are the cream of the crop for supporting those who send their dollars their way.

Does anyone really care what you think? Yes! Companies want to know and are willing to pay you for your feedback. Surveyhead is one great company that charges no fees to join and is proven to pay out! Plus, get an extra $5 just for registering with them! Payout is at $25 and you can chose to receive Paypal or any number of other reward options. They always seem to have many survey options to choose from and I have completed surveys paying up to $5 for just minutes of my time.

Note: Some of the actual survey companys do take quite awhile to validate the data so this is not a "quickie cash" option.

Savvy Shopper Tip-Manage Your Mail

Create an alternate email address to be used specifically for bargain shopping. You can use this address to sign up for coupons, earn rewards points, and register for extra saving with your favorite brands without flooding your personal email inbox. Keeping these emails separate also allows you to take time to deal with them on YOUR schedule and can help you maximize your savings!

My Points

One of my favorite ways to earn money is by using reward sites or cards to make my searching or shopping do double-duty. MyPoints is an excellent reward site that features THOUSANDS of retailers and opportunities to earn points which can be redeemed for a wide variety of gift cards or other rewards. I highly recommend creating an alternate email address to use MyPoints effectively because they send out many emails daily that give you chances to earn points just by reading. You may feel a bit overwhelmed if they are flooding your regular inbox daily.


Swagbucks is probably my absolute FAVORITE way to earn extra cash by doing absolutely nothing that I wouldn't be doing anyway. Rack up the bucks by simply searching the web as you normally would and trade them in for awesome gift cards, prizes, paypal, and MORE!
Currently, I have the Swagbucks Toolbar installed and use it to perform all my searches. But some members are taking advantage of the Facebook, Twitter, and Swagbucks Blog to really maximize their experience.
Best part? I can actually have my Swagbucks account linked to my real email addy and only see a newsletter from them (containing a swagcode!) once a month or less! No Spam!
What are you waiting for? Start Swagging!
