New corner of the blog… Ask Paul.

July 31, 2009

Because we are the parents of 6 kids and have no weekend life, I am considering for the entertainment of all you other parents out there with suddenly no night life that we would start a corner of the blog called Ask Paul. I wanted to call it the Smokey Back Room, but that was already taken by a political forum. So either Friday or Saturday night’s, my husband Paul will be answering your comments or emails. Sounds like fun huh 🙂

Actually, the fun part is that he is completely unqualified to answer any Women’s questions and is totally untrained in the advice department…. just ask me! But he looks really smart, see above photo.
So send all your questions, or leave a comment. Be prepared that he is blunt and not afraid to say it like it is…. he likes answering the questions like: “how to you feel when your wife sends you to the store with a list and an envelope of coupons?” or “why do you hate your wife’s dog so much?” or even, “I can’t believe you have 6 kids, what does your wife find attractive about you?” and lastly, “I am a single male, do women find it hot that I coupon?” 
Don’t hesitate, if you have any big life changing questions feel free to let them fly! You can email him personally at pbivan@yahoo.com or just leave a comment!

Keep you eyes out for coupons!

July 31, 2009


At my Kroger the other day they had end caps with these coupon books. $159 dollars worth of coupons! These are some sweet deals inside. Many are for $2.00 off milk when you buy… I will be using those combined with coupons for the products that go along with it for some sweet deals! Keep your eyes open for these, they should be everywhere it is a Kelloggs and Kraft deal.

The $.99 cent store add in our area is carrying backpacks for $.99 cents right now. I am not sure if it is regional. I am going to check these out. I have been looking for something to use for our family reunion to give as gift bags!

Starbucks for $.25 or less!

July 31, 2009

I should have posted this deal on Sunday. I actually went and got 4 of these earlier in the week. I don’t drink these but my neighbor who gives me her Sunday coupons (nice huh!) begged me to try and find a deal on these, so I have been looking!

 Through tomorrow (August 1, 2009), at Walgreens single bottles of Starbucks Frappuccinos are on sale for $1.25 with the in-ad coupon. Use the $1/1 coupon here (or here) to get them for just $0.25 each.

And, if you purchase them today (July 31, 2009), you can also use the 15% off coupon here and get them for $0.06 each or lower if the 15% is deducted from the regular price.

Remember to hand the 15% off coupon first, then the manufacturer’s coupon, and then the in-ad coupon.

A big thanks to Common Sense with Money and Moneysavingmom!

$2 off a Moviestaycation!

July 31, 2009


You can go HERE and print a coupon for $2 off any Movie Staycation from Sony. Use this at Target to get a ton of kids of movies for only $3. It is in the bottom right corner.
Also, if you register for the Sony program when you purchase 6 movies you can enter the bar codes for a free gift.
When I printed this coupon it took a little maneuvering, I didn’t want to waste any ink so as soon as the coupon printed I canceled the print.
