Giant Eagle: Duncan Hines Brownie Mix $.25 a box!

I'm loving these Giant Eagle deals recently... for a store I never used to buy anything at, I sure do stock up at some things there now! Anyway, go here to print a $.50/1 Duncan Hines Brownie coupon. Duncan Hines brownie boxed mixes are on sale 4/$5 ($1.25 each whether you by 1 or 4), so with this coupon doubled, it makes each box only $.25 each! That's a GREAT price!

Thanks, Deal Seeking Mom!

Giant Eagle: 1lb. Bag of Organic Veggies $.10-$.30!!!

Through Wednesday, July 20th, Cascadian Farm Organic frozen vegetables are on sale 5/$9 ($1.80 each). The promotion is buy 4, get a 5th free, so 5/$9. The shelf at my store shows the advertised 4/$9 ($2.25 each), but when they ring up, the 5th bag deducts $2.25 automatically. Right now there are some high value printable coupons that make this a sweet deal, especially if your Giant Eagle doubles coupons:

Cascadian Farm Organic Fozen Vegetables: $1.80 each (must buy 5)
- use $.85/1 from here or here (you can print two from either site, but not both)
- use $.75/1 from here*
Total: $.10-$.30 per bag

I actually went up to my husband's office to print coupons from two computers there because this deal was so good (we both have laptops at home). So I bought 15 bags/boxes, then used 15 coupons (doubled), and my grand total was $2.90 for 15 bags of frozen veggies! We're stocked for a good while now!

*Don't forget to sign-up or sign-in to your Swagbucks account to print & earn Swagbucks for using coupons! Just sign-in, then click on the "coupons" link in the left column on your homepage. The coupons available to print there are the same that you can find at (If you're new to Swagbucks and sign up through the above links, I do get some referral credit!)

Gerber Lil' Meals $.34 @ Target ('Lil entrees only $.85)

If you have a baby/toddler and you haven't seen this deal yet, you should check it out. Right now you can print of a $.55/1 Gerber 'Lil Meals/Pasta Pick-ups or $1/1 Gerber 'Lil Entrees over at*. (You can print two per computer.)

The Gerber 'Lil Meals are on sale at Target this week for $.89, making them only $.34 after coupon. The 'Lil Entrees are also on sale for $1.85, making them only $.85 each.

My 'lil Levi eats whatever we eat usually, and this is the first time I've ever bought these, but it came at a perfect time. We're headed on vacation in a few weeks, camping in the mountains for a family reunion, and I was glad to stock up on some foods I can prepare quickly for him

Blogging for Books: Win a FREE Book!

Over the last six months I have been part of a program called "Blogging For Books". You've probably heard me mention "Blogging For Books" several times, but if not, here's a brief review: Waterbrook Multnomah, a Christian Publishing Company, offers all bloggers a chance to read & review books for free. Bloggers can sign up, then request a book, they ship it to you, you read it, post a review, and repeat the process. I've loved getting FREE quality, wholesome, Christian books over the last six months! This program is new, and they continue to improve  various aspects, like now offering e-books as well. Here's another new thing:

The newest improvement is to you, my readers! Now when you rank one of my reviews, you will be automatically entered to win a FREE copy of that book! All that's required when you rank a review is to provide your email address (you will have to verify your email address the first time). Interested in a free book? Here are my two most recent reviews you can go read & rank (I try to keep them short!):

"Never the Bride" (A Romantic Comedy about trusting the Lord with everything!)

"When God Created My Toes" (A Children's Book about how God created all of us!)

Let me know if any of y'all win!

FREE Shipping @ LandsEnd (no minimum order)

Last Splash of Summer Sale Up To 60% Off
If you've had your eye on anything at LandsEnd, here is a promo code for Free Shipping on any order, no minimum purchase required. Use promo code "BACKPACKHQ2" and pin "9425". I love looking in their Overstocks for greatly reduced items (especially their high quality swimwear). And don't forget, if you have a Sears near you, you can return any LandsEnd items directly to them and save yourself the return shipping cost, as well as have the balance put right back on your credit card. So sometimes I order two different sizes (since I use the free shipping codes) and return the one that doesn't fit!

This promo code expires Tuesday, July 19th! Have fun!

Jar for a Jar: Donate Baby Food for free through Beech-Nut...

I got an email from Beech-Nut this morning, and they have a program on their Facebook page called "A Jar for a Jar" where you can "share" a virtual jar of baby food, and Beech-Nut will donate a real jar of baby food... here are the details:
"Beech-Nut® has teamed up with ABC Family executive producer and mother of two, Melissa Joan Hart, to introduce the "A Jar For A Jar" virtual donation drive. For every virtual jar of baby food shared, Beech-Nut will donate a jar of baby food to international hunger-relief agency Feed the Children® - up to one million jars."

You can also print off a coupon for $2 off 16 jars of Beech-Nut, or $1 off any Stage 4 or toddler product.

Have you signed up for Beech-Nut emails to get your FREE Toddler welcome kit? I did and got coupons in the mail for a few free products!

$15 for $30 of Hasbro Games

Today is the last day for the Hasbro Groupon: $15 for a $30 voucher to the Hasbro Toy Shop*. And this Groupon can be applied to shipping as well! So if you're planning on getting some games/toys as gifts for birthdays or even Christmas, this could give you a considerable savings! I love the Groupons that can be applied to shipping, because it's so much easier to have things shipped right to my door instead of using gas to go get them, and shipping on some "deals" make them no longer a great deal!

Have fun!

* The above link does contain my referral link for Groupon. I will earn some referral credit if you're new to Groupon, so if you feel comfortable clicking through that link to sign-up, thanks! Otherwise just go to on your own to purchase the deal! I think this deal was listed under Detroit.

Tron-2 Wheel Scooter: $24.99 SHIPPED (50% off)

Tron Scooter
Another Target Daily Deal today is the Huffy TRON-2 Wheel Scooter for $24.99, normally $49.99. This includes free shipping. So if you've been looking for a scooter, this is definitely marked down!

But as always, if it's not something in your budget, and it's money you weren't planning on spending, then it wouldn't be a good deal for you, because as my grandmother says when cashiers hand her a receipt saying"You just saved thus much...", she answers with, "No, I didn't just save money, I spent money!" :-)

Little Girl's Sleeping Bag & Backpack: $6.99 SHIPPED!!! (SOLD OUT)

Indoor Nature Slumber Party Pack - Pink
Update: Looks like they are all sold out! Once it hit the large blogs, I knew it would be gone in a short time!

Friends, this is adorable. I wish they had a boy version because I would definitely buy it for Levi! One of Target Daily Deals today is a "Slumber Party Pack" containing a pink sleeping bag and backpack for $6.99. All of Target's Daily Deals include free shipping. While it won't be Coleman quality camping gear, it would be fun for a little girl's night out! If you're interested, don't wait, because the deal is only for today, and only while supplies last! (this would be a great frugal gift to stash away!)

Thanks, Saving Dollars & Sense!

Book Review: Never the Bride

Never the Bride: A Novel
"Never The Bride" by Cheryl McKay and Rene Gutteridge started me chuckling in the first pages, and kept me laughing throughout the entire book! This book was a delightful combination of the movies "27 Dresses" and "Evan Almighty"... and I think every reader could relate to the main characters in some way. As you read, you truly start to think, "Do I really hand control over to God in every aspect of my life?" But it's presented in such funny, casual ways that you don't realize it at first. And you once again are reminded of the eternal truth that God really does have good things planned for us, but sometimes we mess things up when we try to do things our way. I would recommend this book as a fun read to any fellow females!

Rank my review here, and automatically be entered in drawing to get a free copy of this book!

* I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah as part of their "Blogging for Books" program. If you are a blogger and would like to read & review wholesome, Christian books, check out this free program out here.

Mega Swagbucks Friday!!!

Swagbucks Friends, don't forget that today is Mega Swagbucks FRIDAY, which means your chances are higher for winning higher Swagbucks! Have you had any big winnings recently? Bought anything fun with Swagbucks gift cards? My most recent purchase was a few months ago when my husband and I bought our new tent with Amazon giftcards. We were able to pay for over half of it since we'd been saving up our Swagbucks!

Don't know what the hype is about? Swagbucks is a free online search engine that randomly awards you Swagbucks, which you can redeem for giftcards. My favorite are the $5 Amazon cards for only 450 Swagbucks. What would you like to save up for on Amazon?

Giant Eagle Shopping Trip 7/7

Since Giant Eagle's weekly ad runs from Thursday-Wednesday, I got to make another run this morning to continue the stockpile re-build in my house! And this time I took a picture... As I shared with a friend this week, I never thought I would regularly shop at Giant Eagle because of their high prices, but because of their coupon doubling policy, matched with weekly sales, Giant Eagle now has become a place I do shop at for stockpile basics like yogurt, cereal, pasta, boxed dinners, etc... Anyway, on to today's shopping trip:

Breyer's Ice Cream: 3/$10, Buy 3 Get the 4th FREE (sale price)
- used (4) $.75/1 coupons from here
Total: $1 each

Green Giant Steamers: 3/$5 (sale price)
- used (4) $.50/1 printable coupon (no longer available)
Total: $.67 each

Yoplait YoPlus yogurt: 3/$5 (sale price)
- used (4) $.50/1 coupons from 6/26 SS (I bought extras of this coupon online at
Total: $.67 each

Kraft Veggie Mac & Cheese: $1.59 (regular price)
- used (1) printable coupon from here
Total: $.09 per box

Grand Total: $9.43
That's a 63% savings! yay!

The thing about couponing/deals for me is not about always getting everything free, or almost free, but about reducing the cost of some of the items I normally buy (like ice cream, cereal, pasta, and yogurt), to free up room in the grocery budget for other things, like lots of fresh produce & fresh meat! I have been couponing for right at a year now, and while we've lived within the same food budget, we've been able to transition to eating way more home-cooked, fresh meals, while still enjoying treats like ice cream!

Breyer's Ice Cream $1 each

If you live near a Giant Eagle, you can get a great deal on Breyer's Ice Cream! From 7/7-7/13, Breyer's is on sale 3/$10, but if you buy 3, you get a 4th FREE! So that makes it 4/$10. But here's what makes the deal amazing... "Like" Breyer's on Facebook, and you can print off a $.75/1 Breyer's Blast coupon. Remember, by hitting your "back" button on your internet browser (or the backspace button manually), you can print a second coupon on each computer. So here's how the deal works:

Buy 4 pints of Breyer's Ice Cream: $10
Use (4) $.75/1 coupons (Giant Eagle doubles coupons up to $.99)
Total for all four: $4, so $1 each!

Yummy! We were just getting low on ice cream in our house, which is BAD NEWS! I think my husband has extra space in one of his legs for ice cream alone...

Planet Earth DVD Set: $29.99 (62% off)

Planet Earth DVD Set - Standard
The Discover Channel Store has their semi-annual sale going on right now, and one of the items on sale is the Planet Earth DVD set (5 discs for a grand total of 10 hours long) for $29.99, which is 62% off. Shipping is only $3.95. We have one of these DVD's, and have watched it several times. The cinematography is incredible! This series took 5 years to film!

The Planet Earth Blu-ray set is only $39.99 (60% off).

Let us know if there are any promo codes for free shipping or anything else to pair with these sales!

(and no, I have no affiliate with the Discovery Channel, just wanted to pass on sometime my husband and I have enjoyed, while it's at a reduced price!)

Giant Eagle Shopping Trip 7/5

My helpful husband unloaded the groceries for me, so I didn't take a picture of today's shopping trip, but it was a good one! This pregnancy has been keeping me out of whack, so we've used up a lot of our stockpile (but I was so glad we had built one this last year!), and it felt really good to start rebuilding. All my coupons were doubled since Giant Eagle doubles up to $.99. So here's today's shopping trip recap:

(2) Yoplait YoPlus Yogurt 4-pk: $2.19 each (regular price)

(1) YoBaby Yogurt 4-pk: $2.50 each (regular price)
- used (1) Free YoBaby 4-pk coupon received in the mail

(4) Kraft Veggie Mac & Cheese: $1.59 each (regular price)
- used (4) $.75/1 printed from here (hit your "back" button to print it a second time... I printed these from my computer and my husband's)

(3) Fiber One 80 Cereal: $2.50 each (sale)
- used (3) $.75/1 coupon from here
- there is also an $.85/1 from here and here (which would make these boxes only $.80 each!)

(3) Honey Nut Cheerios Cereal: $2.50 each (sale)
- used (3) $.60/1 from here and here
- you can also print a $.50/1 from here

(1) Reese's Puffs Cereal: $2.50 each (sale)
- used $.50/1 I had printed awhile ago (not available)

(3) Bumblebee Tuna Cans: $.89 each (sale)
- used a $2 catalina towards a beef, chicken, or tuna purchase, printed from buying hamburger helper a few weeks ago

Total: $35.48
After Coupons: $11.88 (including $.39 discount from fuelperks)
That's a 66% savings! Sweet!

Don't forget Giant Eagle's sales run from Thursday-Wednesday of every week. So these sale prices end tomorrow, July 6th!
