You can use one coupon per person per visit and the coupons are good until 12/31/09. The cost is usually $1 for the coupon book (but this year I have seen them also sell for $3 per coupon book.)

Free Grilled Chicken at KFC

Monday, October 26, KFC is offering one piece of grilled chicken to every customer. No coupon is needed. Just ask for your free piece. Free piece selection is manager's choice and it may vary by location. Limit one free piece per person. (And this time KFC is promising it won't be a disaster like the previous offer in May). :o)

Albertsons Shopping

You may have seen this in Albertsons stores or ads, but when you wear your Dallas Cowboy jersey on game day at Albertsons, you get 10% off your total bill! And, you can still use your coupons as well! It's a great way to save extra on your bill. Don't have a jersey? I've done some looking and jerseys can be pretty expensive. Most Alberstons currently have a "Cowboy Store" by their Service Desk where you can buy a jersey. The average price is $29.99 (to me, that is still pretty pricey for a shirt) but it is the best price I can find (right now). Plus, when you consider that it will get you 10% off your order, the savings can add up and end up paying for your jersey! (oh, and as far as I know, you have to wear a jersey. T-shirts don't count. But, you can always double check at your store)

Don't forget about the Yoplait Kids giveaway end this Tuesday at 9 p.m. Be sure to enter. There are two prize packs to win!

Yoplait Kids Yogurt Review and Giveaway!!

"Can I have a snack?" It seems like I hear that phrase all the time! I am trying to encourage my kids to make good eating choices. So to help empower them, I created two snack baskets - one for my pantry and one for my refrigerator. I keep a variety of healthy snacks in the baskets so that when my kids want a snack they can look in the basket and choose their snack.

I was excited to get the opportunity from MyBlogSpark to try Yoplait Kids yogurt. My kids love yogurt and I thought this would be a great addition to the refrigerator snack basket. But I quickly realized, this isn't just any yogurt. Yoplait Kids yogurt has 25% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt. Plus, with its thick and creamy texture that will "hug" your child’s spoon, you won’t have to worry about a mess to clean up afterwards. My 3 year old is a very independent eater...and the thick and creamy yogurt let him eat without any mess! Yoplait Kids also contains no artificial sweeteners or flavors, so you can feel good about serving it to your kids. In addition, Yoplait Kids is a good source of vitamin D. Many kids are deficient on vitamin D, so Yoplait Kids is a great source for it...and calcium too!

My kids love Yoplait Kids yogurt...and I have to is really tasty! Not only is it thick, creamy and yummy, but it is good for you too. All in all it is a great addition to our refrigerator snack basket!

MyBlogSpark would like to give two of my readers a "Yoplait Less Sugar, More Fun" prize pack to two (2) of my readers! The prize pack includes a coupon for a Yoplait Kids yogurt, a travel cooler (to take your yogurt on-the-go), a fun spoon that changes colors in warm water, a reusable place mat with games to keep the kids happy while snacking, and a fuzzy tangle puzzle for some after-snack fun.

Taco Cabana Coupons

In my mailbox today, I found a Taco Cabana ad with coupons. The ad was in the newspaper-type flyer (you know, the big bulky papers containing a bunch of ads that you usually don't even look at). It's rare to see Cabana coupons and not every area will get the coupons this week. But keep watching...they market different areas at different times. Oh, and if you like Cabana, you'll LOVE the coupons...they are buy one get one free meals!

Crafting Coupons

For those of you who like crafting...this post is for you!

This past Sunday, there were 3 coupons in the DFW paper/ads - Michaels, Joanns, Hobby Lobby. (This also may be true for areas outside of DFW, so you may want to check your local paper).

Some interesting facts about these craft stores that you may or may not know:

Hobby Lobby (HL) - HL usually has a 40% off coupon every other week (this week there is a 40% off coupon). The original coupon is found in the newspaper on the same page as the HL ad. If you go to HL's website, you will find the coupon to print. You can print and use the coupon every day. On the weeks that do not have a 40% off coupon, there is usually a different type of coupon (30% off xxxx) on the website. Make sure you check the fine print on the's only for regular price merchandise and there are a few restrictions.

Michaels - Michaels coupons are found in the ad insert in the Sunday newspaper. Inserts are usually every other week (there is one this week). You can sign up/register on Michaels website and receive coupons via email. Michaels also accepts original competitor coupons (meaning it has to be the original coupon...not one you have printed from a website or email). Michaels coupons are usually only for regular price merchandise and have restrictions. (Sometimes the coupons do cover sale make sure you read the coupon).

Jo-ann - Jo-ann coupons are also found in the ad insert in the Sunday newspaper. Inserts are usually every other week (there is one this week). You can also sign up to receive emails from Jo-ann and they will send you coupons via email. I've heard that Jo-ann also accepts original competitor coupons (but I personally haven't tried it yet at Joann). Joann coupons are for regular price merchandise and have restrictions...however, their restrictions don't see to be as strict as Hobby Lobby or make sure you read the coupon.

Kids Eat Free

sorry it's been a while since my last has been crazy! And if you have kids, I know you understand!!

Many restaurants offer Kids Eat Free specials on certain days of the week. Usually you need to buy 1 adult meal and you can receive 1 Kid's meal for free. "My Kids Eat Free" is a website that list "kids eat free" deals all around the country. And, they are continuing to add new restaurants. If you plan on going out to eat, it's a good website to visit.

One restaurant to point out is Boston Market. Now through October 31st, you get 2 free kid's meals with the purchase of 1 adult meal. This is a great deal for bigger families!! Go here for the details. (thanks Juli Beth for sharing this good deal!)

For the past week, every single minute of my spare time has been spent tagging my kids old clothes and accessories for the Just Between Friends sale this weekend! If you've never heard of JBF, then you should go check it out. It's a franchise "consignment" business that has two weekend sales a year (one in the Fall and one in the Spring). I've consigned with JBF before and it was profitable! It takes time and work preparing your items but it's great having someone else "sell" them for you. Plus, they have some great finds and bargains! So, if you need to "clean out" your kids clothes, accessories and toys, or if you are looking for some great deals on children's items, check out their website for upcoming sales near you!
