Almond Breeze - New Flavors & New Printable Coupon - Coconutmilk is Here

Introducting New Coconutmilk Blends
Almond Breeze
Lactose-Free, Dairy Free

Print SmartSource Coupon Here
$1 Off Any Two Almond Breeze Containers

Blue Diamond has introduced four new products in the Almond Breeze line.  They are Almondmilk Coconutmilk blends available in these tempting blends:  original, vanilla, unsweetened original and unsweetened vanilla.  It is my guess that we may not find all four new blends being offered at the same time in a single store.  But eventually they will make it on to the shelves if there is the demand.  So if you want to try them all, ask your store manager if he/she would bring them in. 

I gave up on milk in my cereal as soon as I tasted Almond Breeze and Silk Almond milk years ago.  These new blends contain plenty of calcium, as do the original blends.

The Idiot's Ultimate Guide to Build Your Own PC, Free Makeuseof.com Guide

This Guide is supposed to be geared for the non-techy person. It's free, so check it out if you are in the market for a new PC.

PUBLIX: SUPER EXTREME SAVINGS: Everything Free Today ($136.72) + $4.12 Overage / MoneyMaker

My strategy today was to drive up my total as high as I could today so that I would be able to use the $5 Off With $30 Purchase (Winn-Dixie Coupons from the Enjoy The City Books).  So I had to keep track of what was going in my cart and stop shopping as close to $30, $60, $90, or $120 (I had 4 coupons with me).  What made it so easy was the MoneyMakers still available from the Yellow Advantage Flyer (see my previous post for details).

60 Cents Each - Starkist 6.4 oz Pouch - GREAT DEAL For Upcoming BOGO

Look for the above image when you get this this link on Facebook.  Like them and print two by hitting your  BACK ARROW after printing the first one. 

Hurry and print out two of these because they won't be around long.  And, if you live in the S.E., you can cash in on the savings at Publix when the weekly ad changes on 1/12/12 or 1/13/11, depending on your locale.  That's when they go on sale BOGO, $3.19 for both, MINUS $2 (2 coupons for $1 off 1), and you now are paying just 60¢ each.

By the way, these pouches seem to have WAY MORE tuna in them than the 5 oz. cans (not just an ounce more) - less broth and, the tuna is less mushy and chopped up.   At least that's my experience.

RARE PRINTABLE COUPON: BOGO for 100% Juice - Hurry If You Want It - Print from Facebook

Don't Forget to Hit BACK ARROW after printing the first one, so you can print a second coupon.  Two is the limit.

This Old Orchard product is actually REAL JUICE, frozen, but still 100% JUICE.  It's nice ot have in your freezer to make juice, punch, or your own special juicy juice concoction, like we do.

WOW: 6 Coupon Inserts This Sunday -AND- 2012 Coupon Insert Schedule

A little late, but so what.  Right?  The Schedule of 2012 Coupon Inserts from Sunday Newspapers is finally ready.  See tab above.  From time to time, however, the actual inserts we receive may vary, such as finding extra coupon inserts.  This weekend is a good example, because there will be 6 inserts in most newspapers, but only 4 were originally scheduled.


This week many Sunday newspapers will have SIX INSERTS

  • One RedPlum
  • Three SmartSource
  • One Target Insert (regional, so some may not get this one)
  • One Walmart Insert

EXTREME SAVINGS - A Juicy Deal: 25 Cents for POM Juice at Safeway -AND- Really Cheap Kashi

Valid at Safeway Stores Through 1/10/12

The small size POM juice in the produce section is on sale for $1.25.
COUPON:  $1 off 1 from Smart Source 12/2/12 insert, or
COUPON:  $1 off 1 from POM's website, printable.
FINAL PRICE:  Only 25¢ each

If you don't have the coupon, look for a hangtag.  I found an expired one in my coupon book which is a good indication that POM puts them out every now and again.  Hopefully you don't shop in a Safeway where there are folks who take all the hangtags and tearpad coupons.  


Kashi Entrees and Pizzas are 30% OFF this week.  
COUPON:  $2 of 1 from RecycleBank.com

So if the entree is $3.50 less $1.05 (30%), then minus $2 RecycleBank coupon, you'll pay ONLY 45¢ per Kashi Entree.  

Get your printable $2 off 1 RecycleBank Kashi coupons here.  

P.S.  I think RecycleBank.com is one of the most useful and entertaining freebie sites around.  They ask very little of your time or energy, and they NEVER ask for money, credit card, etc.  It's a great site where they offer info about Recycling and tips about going Green. And for spending a 2 or 3 minutes online, you'll be able to get that $2 Kashi coupon.  There are many many other excellent coupons the print, plus gift cards, magazine subscriptions, department store savings cards, etc.  All for no financial input and hardly any time needed.

$21.03 Free Money For Me (and You Too)

On 11/15/11, I activated my FREE InBox Pays account and received the $5 signup bonus.  No strings attached  Since then (about 6 weeks), I have managed earn another $16.03 without spending any money and very very very little time.  Mostly I just click on the CASH emails they send me each day and InBox Pays ads some pennies here and there.  If one of the cash offers seems easy or interesting enough to me, and does not involve financial commitment, I might complete it too.  For example, I might receive an offer to earh $1 if I fill out an online for to receive insurance quotes.  I use my Google Voice account for the phone numbers and receive any messages relating to the offer in my  mailbox.  So it’s harmless and does not disturb me in any way.
Sometimes InBox Pays offers me FREE spins of a wheel that lets you win more cash, could be pennies, could be dollars.  I haven’t figured out what causes InBox Pays to give me the free spins, nevertheless, I like them because they added $1.20 to my account.   So I guess I’m averaging about $5 every two weeks for only seconds of my time a day.  That ought to bring me up to about $130 extra cash for the year for doing next to nothing… a click here, a click there.  That’ll fill my hybrid car’s gas tank 4 times, plus leave some leftover change.  The site even has printable coupons.  How do you think I found it…. :-)
There are other ways to earn cash if you want to play some games, take surveys, etc.  I haven’t ventured there yet.  Give it a try, you have absolutely nothing to lose.  Seriously.

Toilet Paper is a Fact of Life in America. So Grab Charmin for 27 Cents a Roll - Now

 BOTTOM LINE (no pun intended) $1.08 per 4 MEGA rolls.

Head over to Amazon.com and have 24 MEGA rolls of Charmin Ultra Strong delivered to your house for a total of $0.27 per roll.  That's like paying only $1.08 for a package of 4 MEGA rolls (those are some big big rolls of TP, supposedly the equivalent of 4 regular rolls, making it like getting 16 regular rolls worth of TP for just $1.08, shipping included). 

Mind blowing.  I know.

Visit this Amazon link HERE and select the option to purchase 6 packages containing 4 rolls each.  You can also buy fewer at the same price, but you will incur shipping fees.

I would classify this as extreme savings when you consider how much Charmin is in the stores.

Wishing Great Deals & Happy Life Experiences in 2012

January 1, 2012 is here.  Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.  Where did 2011 go? 

Now that I've used up and cleaned out my expired 2011 coupons, and finished holiday entertaining, shopping and festivities, I can get off the shopping trail for a while and get back to blogging about shopping, saving, deals, and coupons coupons coupons.

I don't know about you, but November and December were crazy crazy months filled with so many deals, specials, coupon books and inserts, catalogs, daily deals, etc., that I barely had time to get online for anything except printing coupons and reading the gazillions of emails coming in.  Next year I'll probably see if I can hire one of Santa's helpers to help get us through with our heads still on straight. 

I look forward to a shopping year of great deals, tons of savings and plenty of freebies for all of us.  On the personal side, I foresee a year of happiness, joy, well-being, healthy-eating, adventures, and good times with friends and family.

Best Wishes,
