Stock-up Price! Save up to $5.50 off on Tide!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on July 1, 2014 at 7:25 PM Comments comments (0)



If you like Tide, you are going to LOVE this deal!  Tide (92 to 100 fluid ounces of laundry detergent) is on sale at both Target and Walmart this week through July 5th, for only about $10, which is a $2 savings alone without any coupons needed.


In addition, there is also currently a $1.50 off Tide coupon available at Coupons.com (here) & Dollar General's site (here). Using the coupon w/ this sale saves you a total of $3.50 off the regular price!


I purchase Tide regularly, and trust me when I tell you THIS IS AN AWESOME DEAL! Or as we say in the coupon circles, THIS IS A STOCK UP PRICE! 


UPDATE!  This deal just got even better at Publix! Save a total of $5.50 off 100 fl oz. of Tide detergent at Publix this week through 7/5 by using the Publix phone app store coupon for $2 off w/ the manufacturer's coupon for $1.50 off, on top of their sale price of $9.99, making it only $6.50 out of pocket for the 100 fl oz of Tide! That's almost HALF OFF regular price!


UPDATE AGAIN!!  This deal just keeps getting better and better!!  Spend $30 on Tide products and get $10 CASH BACK!!  More info, and rebate, can be found HERE!!


Reminder: You can print each coupon TWICE per computer! :-)

Turbo-Cooling Pillowcase Review & GIVEAWAY!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on May 25, 2014 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (1)



As you may remember, last year I reviewed, and hosted a giveaway for, the Polar-Pillow (see that review here), and many of you were very interested in it.  I heard back from several of you that you had hoped to win because you frequently experience migraines, hot flashes, night sweats, live in hot climates, and etc., and hoped the Polar-Pillow could help you.  Well, I've got some great news!  The ingenious, and generous, people at Polar-Pillow are at it again!  


So you ask, what can possibly be better than a Polar-Pillow?  And the answer is... A Turbo-Cooling Pillowcase, by the makers of Polar-Pillow, that allows you to turn your favorite, standard size, pillow (ANY standard size pillow), into a turbo-cooling pillow!  Plus, it's HALF the price of the original Polar-Pillow (AVR $99)!  Average retail value of the Turbo-Cooling Pillowcase is $49.


I personally love the Turbo-Cooling Pillowcase because it is ULTRA SOFT and provides a cool night's rest.  And I highly recommend it to anyone whom wants to turn their favorite pillow into a cooling pillow.  I think this product is especially great for those of you whom use special orthopedic pillows and want to vamp them up to a specialized cooling pillow.  I can only imagine how therapeutic that would be!

 


Here's how it works:

FREE Watch or Sunglasses (up to $58.99 value) at Target!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on October 3, 2013 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)

FREE Watch or Sunglasses (up to $58.99 value)!  Simply use the buy one get one free coupon in the Target mobile app (download it for free, or text OFFERS to 827438 & follow the directions), and purchase an inexpensive accessory item (I bought some cheap earrings on clearance for $2.38), and then get a second, more expensive, nice accessory item for FREE!  :-)  


Usually, in BOGO (buy one get one) free offers, you pay for the higher priced item, and get a second item of equal, or lesser, value for free; but NOT this time!  This time you pay for the cheaper item, and get the more expensive one for free!  Don't miss out on this AWESOME DEAL!


This deal is good at all Target locations, and has been verified by Target on their Facebook Fan Page.  HURRY!  RUN, don't walk! Offer expires 10/4/13.




Note:  Target says:  "If you have any complications using the buy one, get one mobile coupon please give us a call at (800) 440-0680 while at the store."  


                              



                                          

 


A special "thank you" to Target for offering such a generous and awesome deal; and to Midget Momma for bringing it to my attention!

FREE Gallon of ANY Brand Milk, Plus $1.75 Money Maker!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on September 27, 2013 at 10:15 PM Comments comments (0)

I scored a FREE gallon of milk, plus was paid $1.75 to take my free gallon of milk home with me, and you can, too!   Here's how... If you're a CVS rewards member, check your emails for two coupons, one for 25% off, and another for $3.00 off.  It doesn't matter if they've expired or not, CVS will still accept them (up to within one year of the expiration date - more info about that here).   And if you're not a CVS rewards member, signing up is free and easy, just ask the cashier at checkout and/or sign-up online.  Those two coupons combined will score you a FREE gallon of milk!


Then when your CVS receipt prints, you'll receive a $1.00 off coupon (a.k.a. "extra bucks rewards") good towards your next purchase.  Plus, right now, the free app, Ibotta, is offering $0.75 cash back on ANY brand gallon of milk purchase through 9/30/13.  In addition to that, new Ibotta members currently receive a special $10 in welcome bonuses; download the free Ibotta app here.


And that's how I scored a FREE gallon of milk and was paid $1.75 to bring it home, and you can, too!  Not familiar w/ Ibotta? Then read my blog post about it here.


               


                                       


Note: If you end up missing out on this deal, you can still continue to get a free gallon of milk often, or whatever else you choose instead, because CVS often emails those same two coupons (one for 25% off and another for $3 off); However, it will be unlikely they you'll earn $1.75 cash back again on this purchase any time soon. So if you can take advantage of it now, I suggest that you do! :-)


Also, right now through 10/17/13, you can enter daily to win FREE milk HERE!

Snugg Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Review & GIVEAWAY!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on August 13, 2013 at 11:10 PM Comments comments (19)



If you're looking for a wireless keyboard for your iPad, check out the Snugg Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard & Case.  It's attractive and well designed.  It has an aluminum/chrome looking finish that nicely compliments your device.  And it's extremely easy to pair and use! 


Plus, it doesn't require any batteries (it has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery).  The keyboard charges via a standard USB cable, which is included, and holds a charge for a remarkable amount of time (55 straight hours of continuous use, or 60 days standby time); and when depleted, can be fully charged again quickly in less than five hours.  And if you're like me, you'll agree that it's nice having the use of arrow keys, and quick short-cut keys, which this keyboard provides.


       


When I received my Snugg wireless keyboard, it only took about 45 minutes to fully charge out of the box.  And pairing it w/ my device(s) was a breeze, and took less than one minute!  I was amazed how quickly, and easily, the keyboard paired with my devices.  I even made a short video with my 10 year old son demonstrating how quick & easy it is to set-up (click here to view that video), proving it's so easy that even a young child can do it!  I paired it with both my iPad and my iPhone, and have been pleased.  


I found this keyboard to be handy around the house; and I imagine that it's even handier for the traveler on the go.  The three things I like most about it are: 1) It's easy to type on.  The keys are raised, and spaced a comfortable distance apart.  2) In addition to being used with our iPad, it can also be used w/ my iPhone (and iPods), too.  3) The remote distance on it is fantastic (up to 10 meters, or over 32+ feet), and thus can be used while our iPad remains in it's protective case.  


          


The Snugg Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard & Case features the following

- Lightweight (280gm) & close fitting - not bulky

- Aluminium finish w/ white keys

- Operating distance of 10 meters (over 32 feet)

- iPad slots into the top of the keyboard & connects via bluetooth

- Accepts keyboard shortcuts & includes a home screen button

- Built-in automatic sleep/wake function

- Long lasting rechargeable lithium battery w/ 60 days standby time

- Easy to pair w/ the iPad 2, 3, & 4, iPhone 3G, 4, 4S & 5, & iPod touch

- Can connect to any device w/ an iOS 4 or higher

- Comes w/ USB charging cable



Thanks to the generous people at Snugg, one of my lucky readers will WIN their very own Brand New Snugg Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Case!  Simply ENTER TO WIN HERE!!!  Enter daily to earn extra entries!



The Snugg Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard & Case can be purchased on Amazon here, and/or on Snugg's website here.  For more info (and possible discounts), follow Snugg on Facebook and Twitter.

Screen shot from my PayPal account on 4/8/13.  I was paid $11.05 in just a few days...



Note: Click on the images above to enlarge them.  Also, in most cases, you can choose to be paid by check, instead of PayPal, if you prefer.  I personally prefer PayPal b/c it's quick, easy & secure; and I'm able to access my funds immediately. Also, I think it's worth mentioning that I only shop about once a week for my young son and I, and I don't usually buy in bulk b/c it's just the two of us; I only spend about a total of $350 a month on groceries, and very little on anything else b/c funds are limited. The point of me mentioning this is to show that anyone can earn monies, cash back, and freebies, without spending a lot of time or money shopping. :-)

Tree Frogs in my yard... One w/ rare blue eyes!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on June 8, 2013 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (1)

We live in somewhat of a rural area, and although we've always had frogs hanging around our porch light at night, I recently discovered that we actually have a whole entire frog family living behind the welcome sign on our front porch.  I've been taking lots of pics of them lately (see more here), and have recently noticed that one of them has different eyes than all of the rest.  



The one below has pretty, blue, crystal looking, eyes!  I've never seen anything like it before!


All of the rest of the frogs I've seen in our yard have eyes like the ones below:



I'm no frog expert.  I just know what I've witnessed and photographed.  If you have ANY information about this, I'd LOVE to read your comments below!  Thank you!

Rooting Basil Clippings to Create New Plants!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on June 7, 2013 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Did you know...1) Basil is a natural insect repellent! It smells nice, is great to eat & cook with, has many health benefits, and keeps pesky mosquitoes (and other insects) away, too!


Did you know... 2) Basil clippings can be rooted to grow new plants. Pictured here is mine after just two short weeks. My clippings have rooted well, in just a cup of water - nothing else, and are ready to be planted.

Growing Garlic from Table Scraps!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on June 5, 2013 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (12)
Did you know?  1) you can easily grow garlic from table scraps!  2) the young leaves can also be eaten!  They have a nice, mild, garlic (almost onion like) type tasty flavor.

That's right, you can eat the leaves much like you would green onions or chives!  Cut a little bit off, and toss it into your salad (or pasta, dip, soup, etc.), or onto a baked potato, or whatever you like.  Just don't eat them all, b/c if you leave some length, you can later braid your garlic after it's harvested & dried, which makes a neat & convenient storage display.  Garlic is EASY to grow (and can be grown in all zones), and as you can see below, it grows quickly, too!  And the health benefits are numerous!  Garlic is a staple in our household; we love it, and use it in many recipes.

Below are some step by step photos of my garlic being grown from table scraps:



Notes:  I used an inexpensive American organic garlic bulb from my local grocery store which only cost about $0.50 cents.  I separated the cloves, and planted them tips up, and flat parts down (where the roots will develop).  Garlic likes full sun, and being well drained.  Each clove planted will produce a bulb (of about 12 - 20 cloves).  Want more info?  I found the following post, here, to be very informative.


p.s. The "pot" in the photos, is actually a recycled gallon tin can that I picked up from Papa John's Pizza for FREE!  It was used to hold marinara sauce before I cleaned it out, drilled holes in it for drainage, and painted it.  It was left over from a previous project I made, a DIY Hanging Garden.  To see what else I have in my apartment garden, click here.
