Swagbucks - Why you need them

Ever heard of Swagbucks? If not, then you're in for a real treat!!!

Swagbucks is a lot like Google or Yahoo Search... but waaaaaay BETTER.

For every search you do through Swagbucks, you receive "bucks" to redeem for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, etc. It's so easy, it's a no brainer that you need to use them for your searches. There are no catches - period. I use Swagbucks all the time and LOVE it! My mom uses Swagbucks too, I think she's close to 50 Swagbucks that she can cash in for awesome gift cards.

Check it out for yourself, click on the link on the right side of my blog. You're gonna looooove it! :) (You will have to fill out your personal information, but it's COMPLETELY legitimate. They collect it so they can sen you your gift cards.) Have fun searching the web!!

All You HOT DEAL - $16 for 2 YEARS!! HURRY!!

I'm so excited to be able to offer this fantastic deal to you all!!!

All You - a magazine choc full of high value coupons - is on sale for $16 for two years! But the offer only lasts through July 30th. If you are on the fence about ordering do so now as the price has been reduced from $17.95 to $16.00 for two years! That is $8 per year or .66 an issue! Your credit card will not be charged until the end of the month- so don't wait until the last minute and miss out on this offer!

I personally have my All You subscription through Southern Living- it is a very reputable company and this is the best deal you will find on this great magazine. This blow out sale is a great opportunity to get additional copies of the magazine for even more coupons! You just need to slightly modify the name on the order- or use your husband's name, children's names, maiden name etc..- so your current order isn't automatically extended.

You can email me directly with any questions at As a reminder- these are the coupons offered in the August issue. So .66 for over $61 in coupons this month alone- including a coupon for FREE chicken nuggets.
This offer is provided by Southern Living at Home and requires a few easy steps:

1. Click here for the Southern Living web site
2. Click on Our Products (on the left side)
3. Right above Spring Online catalog it says "How to Purchase"- click on that
4. Type in Cheapie as the hostess first name and Cheapie as the hostess last name
5. Click on Cheapie Cheapie
In the search box on the right side type in 40776
Viola! Click on All You- this is 2 Years- it says 12 issues to let you know how many they publish per year

DISCOUNT NOTE: The total will show $19.95 at checkout and on your confirmation email. Don't worry it will be adjusted to $16.00 before your card is charged.

There are no additional shipping fees or taxes. Please DO NOT CHECK DIRECT SHIP during checkout as you will be charged an extra $10. (Magazines are already sent direct to you)

Monday blahs

Hello fellow readers!

It's Monday, and I have to admit that I'm quite blah today. We painted our house over the weekend with Home Depot gift cards we received from family for our birthdays (it looks fantastic!!) and I'm just kinda in crash mode.

So while in crash mode, my daughter and I went out and priced new computers this afternoon. I realized there's just no way in the world I can afford one right now! We are so strapped with everyday bills... there's just no extra money for a computer.

I started couponing to pinch any extra penny we could find and just when we thought we were starting to get ahead, my computer died. I'm getting so frustrated and just had to vent! If anyone knows of some great deals on computers, PLEASE pass them my way.

Alright, I'm done with my woe is me whining. Time to pick myself up and move on!! :)

CVS and the importance of Rain Checks

This past weekend I visited 2 different CVS stores in the hopes of getting all my deals for the week. As it turned out, there are a lot more folks out there couponing than in the past. By the time I hit the stores on Sunday at 1pm, ALL the deals were cleaned out of both stores.

But - instead of leaving empty handed, I asked the cashier for rain checks on all the items I had intended to buy.

This is a fabulous way to make sure you still get all the great deals, even if they are out at the moment. CVS rain checks NEVER expire.. In fact, it actually worked out better for me this week as I'm able to gather more coupons for the items I really want, go back when they are in stock and still get the same great deal!

So, the moral of this post:

Always ask for rain checks if CVS is out of your fabulous deal!

Computer woes

So I just have to share my loss with all of you tonight... my beloved iMac of 5 years has officially died. I can't believe how attached I was to that blasted computer - I almost feel like I've lost a member of my family. Okay, well not quite that dramatic, but it sure has cut me. I am now left computerless, relying on my parent's laptop and my employer's fabulous 24" Mac that I love oh so much. sigh. I'm so sad! Maybe my boss will cut me a deal with one of our computers.... yeah .... yeah right!! hahaha

I loved my Mac!!!!!
