I am so excited to announce that I'm an affiliate for! I have been a member of the MySurvey Consumer Panel for a few months, and I have enjoyed my experience so much that I want to share it with you. As a member of the panel, I am able to give my opinion about products and services. I also have the opportunity to test new products. I have taken about 10-15 surveys in the past two months, and they only take 5-15 minutes of my time. For each survey I take, I'm awarded points, which I will be able to exchange for cash or items like giftcards or various products and for charity donations. I receive 10 points for surveys for which I don't qualify and 50 points for surveys for which I do qualify. Points can also be earned for downloading their messenger and for referring friends. On top of all that, they award money and points in sweeps and giveaways. Just last week, I won 10,000 points (an equivalent of $100) in a giveaway!!

Interested? Click on the box below or on the sidebar to sign up! I receive 150 points for every person I refer.

Kroger Milk - Half-Gallons are the Better Price

Kroger has their half-gallons 3/$5 (Skim, 1%, and 2%) and $1.88 (Vit. D), which makes it around a $1 cheaper to buy 2 half-gallons instead of 1 gallon.

Earn Free Magazines at Ad Perk

At Ad Perk, you earn credits toward free magazine subscriptions by watching ads. I'd read about the site on several blogs, but I didn't look at it until today because I thought it would take too much time. I was wrong! In about 20 minutes (which I also spent working on my posts here), I earned a free subscription to Field and Stream. The ads I watched ran from 30 seconds to less than 4 minutes. Shorter ads usually earn 1 credit, and longer usually earn 2.

Right now there are two magazines you earn, but you can see the list of the ones coming soon.

15% off at Children's Place

Use code J28IBEMVQ78 to get $15% off your total at or print an in-store coupon. (Shipping is $5 flat rate.)
There are some really cute fall clothes on sale, and they still have some items left from the Monster Sale. I just bought this jumper in-store tonight, and it cost a little over $14 - that's more than $5 off the original price after sale and 15% off. I got these shoes in blue and this outfit. I also LOVE this one, but they didn't have the right size in the jumper.

Lots of Good Stuff

Sorry to be MIA this week. My first week of school has been very busy! Between a new curriculum, my own kids in a new routine, and Phase 1 of the South Beach diet, I have been thoroughly exhausted!! Here's a bunch of cool samples, coupons, etc. for you!


Start Sampling - I have ordered a few samples from here recently, but I decided to sign up for a membership today. (Email me and I'll be glad to send you a referral for membership!) You can get coupons, free issues or whole subscriptions to magazines, free products, etc. Here are the ones that I recommend:

See all offers here. (Thanks, Heather, for introducing me to the site!)

Post-it Super Sticky Recycled Notes (Another one from Freebies4mom)


$10/1 off Tidy Cat's Breeze Litter System from (on the widget!) - I highly recommend this product! You can learn more about it on Breeze website.

Free Kraft, Nabisco, and Oscar Mayer product coupons can be found in the newest All You magazine. Click here for more info.

(I'm currently working on the deals for this week, but I honestly don't see much to report. Sad!)

All You Magazine - You must get this!!

The newest All You magazine has some GREAT coupons. The best ones are 5 separate coupons for FREE products:
- Buy any 3 Kraft, Nabisco, or Oscar Mayer products (excluding single serve), and get a FREE
- Wheat Thin Crackers
- 16 oz Kraft Dressing
- Oscar Mayer hot dogs
- Crystal Light

Buy 3 packs of Kool-Aid (usually around $.10 each) for your free products! At Kroger, I spent $0.60 for 6 packs of Kool-Aid, package of Kraft Singles, and a bottle of dressing! I'll be using the others later in the month.

All You is only available at Walmart for $1.77 an issue or by subscription. Buying your subscription from will also cost you $1.77 an issue. I recommend buying a 2-year subscription from CARA's magazine fundraising site. At $20, you'll end up getting each issue for $0.88, and you'll be helping to keep our no-kill animal shelter open! (Btw, I often buy more than one issue of All You because I more than make up the price by the great deals the coupons give me!)

Tuesday's Tip - Act Quickly!! and a Bonus Tip!

If a deal seems REALLY awesome, act quickly or it could be gone! This is a tip that I should have given my friends when I emailed them about the deal. I've had numerous calls and emails over the past few days because people want to know what they are doing wrong. Unfortunately, it's not something that we can fix -- fixed it so that we can no longer get the deal.

So, in the future, I am going to remember to tell everyone to go NOW for any deals that are almost too good to be true!

Bonus Tip: Check out my widget to the right! You can scroll through the coupons and print the ones you want - all from my page! I do get paid when you use the widget, but I really do think it's an awesome, helpful thing to have on a site about couponing and saving money!
