Latest coupon trip...

I'm pretty excited to report a successful trip I had last night. To some it may look silly because I got so few items and they're all fairly random at first glance. But don't be fooled, as a young, non-married woman I don't have anyone to cook for during the week since Boyfriend lives an hour and a half away. would be silly for me to buy giant amounts of food at any time when I already have ten cans of Progresso waiting in the cabinet.

Since I'm trying to live a healthier lifestyle and drop some pounds, I was compelled to buy healthy stuff. But I also love chocolate and coffee more than any other food or drink, so it's hard for me to stay away.

The first stop was Walgreen's. I got two Milka bars. Someone recently told me how to make some rockin' special brownies with them! Maybe I'll post the recipe later. :)
Amount spent = .27. Amount saved = 2.00.

Second stop was Publix.
Amount spent = 4.43. Amount saved = 12.something.

*the coffee creamers are non-alcoholic for everyone worrying that I'm addicted to Bailey's right now. And they came out to be .50 a piece with this coupon. It printed as $1.00 off for me.

For the rest of the sweet deals please visit Iheartpublix. They do an awesome job and I always use their website when planning shopping trips. Hope this helps anyone who can use this stuff!!!!!

I Heart Eversave!

I know there are a lot of deal sites that have become very popular in the last 6 months, like Groupon, LivingSocial, YaySave and Mamapedia. But one that I discovered and I really enjoy is Eversave. It had a wide variety of deals, from clothes and jewlery to personalized calendars from Vistaprint.

Just today I took advantage of their newest deal. For $10 you get $20 worth of phone accessories! Now, I really needed this...well, I really have been WANTING this for a long time. I've been asking for a cell phone case for a while and I just haven't gone to look at one. So I checked to make sure that there was a case for the Droid and I got it! I'm so excited!

If you'd like to see what I'm talking about, head over to and get registered. Or just look around and see if you think it's worth it. I mean, it's totally free to sign up, so why not?!

You have 2 days before this save runs out, but there will be plenty more! Have fun!

Smoothie for Breakfast!

Hello. I'm back. (I always say that, but this time it's for real.) I think blogging may be a better use of my time than watching Psych nonstop. Although, I do love Shawn and Gus...

Anyway... I wanted you to know that I am going to review stuff. Yeah, I said it. I try a lot of different stuff, maybe because of coupons I have or random circumstances, but I want to share the good and the bad with YOU! So here is what I had for breakfast this morning:

I had the Mango Strawberry Pineapple, not the Triple Berry that is featured in the lovely picture.

These smoothies are totally easy to make. 1) Put smoothie contents from pouch into blender, 2) add 1 1/2 cups of milk, 3) blend. EASY. This makes two servings, but I drank them both in one of my huge Alabama football cups from the stadium. :) And I gotta say, that smoothie tasted better than most of the smoothies I would buy from a store. It was great! I can't wait to eat my Blueberry Pomegranate one. AND...I'm buying more because they're BOGO at Publix this week! With $1.25 off coupons to go with them! If anyone wants to print me off some of these, go ahead, be my best friend.

Please go try these smoothies. My brother, Russ, will love them. He's obsessed with smoothies and he needs to try these. Oh yeah, did I mention that smoothies are good for you???
