If you need to buy diapers for yourself or for a gift, you might want to check out Some of their diapers are on sale right now and if you are a first time customer you can $10 off your order PLUS $5 off your 2nd order. (This is a good deal since you rarely get discounts off your second order). Plus, if you order $49 or more the shipping is free. To take advantage of this deal use coupon code: ANNS3709

* Personal note on diapers: I am a big Pampers fan. I've tried others but Pampers usually work best for my kids. I have recently discovered Kirkland Signature diapers (from Costco). I like the way they fit and we haven't experienced leaks. sells Kirkland brand diapers and with the $10 off coupon, they are a great deal. (just add some wipes or a single package of diapers to bump your order for free shipping!)

New Way to get DEALS!

There are several websites that are popping up that offer "collective buying power" to get great deals. I've been watching several of these sites to get an idea of what's offered.

One site that I've been watching (and have even purchased from) is GROUPON. Each day Groupon features a "deal" which is usually a high discount off products or services. If there are enough people to buy the "deal", then it's a go. (If there is not enough buying the deal, then the deal is dead). BTW, one of the reasons I like Groupon (compared to other sites) is because they seem to offer a lot of deal in many cities. If you live in the DFW area, they have deals for Ft. Worth and Dallas.

Today's deal seems like a pretty good one:
Today's Deal: $99 for Six Laser Hair-Removal Treatments at 360° MedSpa and Wellness Center (Up to $1,230 Value)

Because it's Friday, this deal is available all weekend. (Usually the deals are only available for one day). You can sign up here to get daily email from them (you can choose 1 city). I have the Groupon email for Ft. Worth deals but I also try to check the Dallas deals each day because every once in a while there is a Dallas deal that is good for all locations (including Ft. Worth).

If you decide to do it, let me know what you think!

Yogurt Review and Giveaway!!

I'm a fan of Yoplait yogurt. I love the variety and the taste. I was recently asked by MyBlogSpark if I wanted to try the new Yoplait Greek Yogurt. Ummm...of course! It's a new product so I had a little difficulty finding on the shelves...but I did find it! The first thing I noticed is that on the front label it states that it contains 2x the amount of protein than most other yogurts. That sparked my interest. The texture is very different than other yogurts I've tried. It is super thick and very creamy (personally, I am a fan of creamy yogurt so I liked that!!). To me, the Yoplait Greek Yogurt was a rich yogurt...and I liked it! The new Yoplait Greek Yogurt is available in four flavors: Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Vanilla and Plain.

Want to try it for yourself? MyBlogSpark is giving one of my readers two VIP coupons for two free cups of Yoplait Greek yogurt. will also receive a Yoplait Greek “Nourish Your Inner Goddess” gift pack, which includes some great items that will help you relax. (I've seen this gift pack and let me is AWESOME!)

Want to win?? Just leave a comment below and tell me the Yoplait Greek Yogurt flavor you would like to try! Comments must be receive by Sunday, May 9th at 10:00 p.m. CST.

In the meantime, go here to download a coupon and save $0.30 on one cup of new Yoplait Greek today!

*All materials I received for the Spark, including the prize pack, coupons, information and images were provided by Yoplait through MyBlogSpark.*

Mahatma Rice Giveaway!

I'm a big fan of Mahatma Rice and was asked by BzzAgent if I wanted to try it out. So of course I said yes! I received a package of Basmati Rice and Jasmine Rice. I cooked both of them so that we could have a taste test. Results? They were both yummy! Each one had a little different smell and taste to them but they were both really good. The grains were really long and were not as starchy. The kids loved them. I had fixed Hawaiian Chicken for dinner that night and the Jasmine rice went really well with it!

Would you like to try it out? I have coupons for a free 2 lb. bag of Basmati Rice and a free 2 lb. bag of Jasmine Rice (you get both coupons). And I have enough for 4 lucky winners! So, leave a comment telling me your thoughts on Jasmine or Basmati rice (or if you haven't tried them...what rice do you prefer?). Leave your comment by next Tuesday, March 23, 11:59 p.m.

FREE Money!

If you purchase anything online and haven't signed up for Mr. Rebates yet, you need to do it! It's free money!

When you are ready to do an online purchase, simply go to the Mr. Rebates website, search the store you are looking for, click on that store and the store information will come up. It will have the rebate percentage you will get back for making a purchase as well as any coupon codes that are available for that store. Then you click on that store and Mr. Rebates will link you to that store. I have looked into MANY cash back sites and rebates sites and I keep coming back to Mr. Rebates. They seem to have the highest percentage cash back...and their coupon codes are always up to date.

When you make a purchase the rebate percentage will go into your account (may take up to 7 days of when the item is purchased or shipped). Once the money is in your account, it will be considered "pending" for up to 90 days (to make sure you don't have any returns). After 90 days it will be considered "available". When you are ready to "cash out" (you need $10 available in your account), you can request a check or have it sent via paypal.

If you haven't signed up, go Mr. Rebates here and get an extra $5 added to your account. That's free money!

Diapers Deal - $10 plus FREE shipping

I typically buy my diapers when they go on sale and I use my coupons. I don't like paying full price...diapers aren't cheap!

I learned about a good deal on diapers from It's for new customers are the details:

* Go to and add $49 worth of diapers (or other items) to your cart. You need it to be at least $49 so that you can get free shipping.
* If you choose diapers that have an eCoupon, make sure you click on it so that the coupon will apply to your order.
* When you checkout, enter promo code ANNS3709 for $10.00 off your order.
* You will need to print your receipt (to turn in with the rebate).
* Then then print and submit this form for a $14.97 rebate (read instructions on how to submit and what is required).
I didn't see any expiration date on the form so it should go through.

I prefer Pampers (everything else leaks for us), so...with the $10 off and the $14.97 rebate, I paid $29.01 for 241 diapers. PLUS, they are being delivered directly to my front door!

Oh, and don't forget to go through Mr.Rebates to get to You can earn an additional 1% cash back on your purchase. (New to Mr. Rebates? Sign up here and you will automatically get $5 in your account!)

This is a great deal and I love that I can shop at home and have the diapers delivered to my door!

Cereal & Giveaway

My family loves cereal! We even have a special night each week designated as "cereal night". If you look in our pantry, we always have at least 5 different boxes of cereal. When I buy cereal, I look at price, taste, and sugar. The price has to be good, the taste has to be great and I don't want the cereal to contain a lot of sugar!

General Mills announced in late 2009 a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

The people from General Mills (through MyBlogSpark) sent me some interesting facts on ready-to-eat cereals.
Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children’s diets.

Other cereal benefits:
*Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children’s diets.
*Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child’s diet today.
*More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.

General Mills (through MyBlogSpark) also sent me some coupons to try out these cereals....and I would like to share one of these coupons with you.

Just leave a comment before Friday, February 5th stating your favorite General Mills Cereal!

Go here and you will find a $1 off coupon for General Mills cereal.
