Oh wheeeeeeeere is my hairbrush? Oh wheeeeeeeeere is my hair brush? Oh where oh where oh where oh where oh WHEEEEEEERE…is my hair brush?

Where are my Bowling Green, Kentucky VeggieTales fans at?! This may be my favorite VeggieTales song. They are all so cute. It might be a close second to the cheeseburger song.

So excited to tell y’all about this awesome event at Family Christian Stores coming up on October 31st in Bowling Green, KY!

Here are the details:

When: Friday, October 31st 2014
Where: Bowling Green, KY Family Christian Store- 2425 Scottsville Rd #100
What to do: Dress like a veggie, take a photo in-store, post it to their Twitter and/or Instagram using the hastag #FCVeggies and tagging @FamilyChristian

The grand prize winner will receive a $250 gift card to Family Christian. FIVE runner ups will receive $50 appreciation certificates.

Your child does NOT have to dress like a VeggieTales veggie, just any veggie to qualify. You must have at least ONE child dressed up to enter the contest. And ALL children that stop by during the Dress Like A Veggie Event will receive small goodies!

You can find some great costume inspiration on this Pinterest board


There is a COUPON! 40% Off Any Regular Price Item. Print this sucker out and take it with you when you dress like a veggie! Or use it online today! I’m already thinking about Christmas gifts so this would be a great way to save on those. Or just something for yourself. I could spend hours in there. Literally.

Coupon can be used at any Family Christian store or online and expires 11/13/14. This event is happening at ALL Family Christian stores nationwide!

Friday Restaurant Round-Up 5/2

Restaurant Round Up

It’s Friday, YAY! The day we have been waiting for all week. You might end up taking a break from cooking for lunch or dinner over the weekend. If you do end up going out to eat, then check out the coupons below before you go to save a little money!

Tips for using restaurant coupons:

  • Read all of the fine print prix achat viagra. Know before you go what the stipulations and restrictions are on the coupon so there are no surprises at the restaurant, ie- buy one get one free entrees often make the lesser valued entree free not the more expensive, one coupon per table, etc.
  • Tell your server that you have a coupon before you place your order. This is a huge help for your server when preparing your bill. It also helps to make sure you get what you are entitled to according to your coupon.
  • Tip based on total before coupon. This is good etiquette, the same as if you weren’t using a coupon. Base your tip on your service as your normally would.
  • Coupons are good through the very day they expire.

Harvest Snaps or Snapea Crisps $.99 at Kroger!

$0.50 off Harvest Snaps or Snapea Crisp snacks

It may just be me, but I am obsessed with these things y’all! Pretty sure there are only about 3 servings in each bag and I usually consume all 3! They are actually very healthy and aren’t fried like potato chips.

If you share my same enthusiasm for these healthy snacks then this coupon might just be for you viagra et. Kroger carries them for around $1.79-$1.99 so with this coupon doubled, that makes them around $.99!

I’d grab this $.50 off Harvest Snaps or Snapea Crisp Snacks coupon and hold onto it for the next time you need a snack after shopping.

Beginner Publix Deals 4/21-4/29



When I hear from friends who haven’t started to coupon yet, one of the first things they ask is where to start. And the first thing I always recommend is to start by collecting coupons. This means getting a Sunday paper or two so your stash can start to grow. But often times they want to start before their coupons start to build. They get bit by the coupon bug and are anxious to begin! I don’t blame them, it’s exciting.

I thought I would try this out this week and see how it goes for you newbies. I’d like to hear from you if this helps or if any of you would prefer it a different way. I will also be sharing my favorite deals involving all coupons.

The deals below are the best deals for those just starting out with no coupons collected. This means that you’ll most likely need a printer at least to get them. If you don’t, you may want to ask a friend to use their printer. It’s worth it!
