Gluten Free - Educate Yourself


While I was out shopping this past week I was checking out the baking mixes and watched a lady pick up a "Gluten Free" mix that was $.45 more expensive than the regular mix.  And you know me - always trying to save people money.  I asked her if she realized she was grabbing the "Gluten Free" kind that was more expensive and she said she was "giving up gluten."  I was a little confused.  I asked if she had Celiac disease or had gluten sensitivities.  She said that she didn't, but that she just wanted to eat healthier.

Ok, I understand the wanting to eat healthier deal, but unless you have Celiac Disease or have definite sensitivities to gluten going "gluten free" won't help your health.  In other words if you don't have these ailments you're just paying $.45 extra for the words "gluten free."  Companies have realized that many people catch on to these fad diets.  That's why all of a sudden you see "gluten free" products everywhere - with a higher price tag in most cases.

Do me a favor.  Check with your doctor.  See what he/she has to say about a "gluten free" diet and if it may help you.  In most cases it won't. Companies are using wording to make you pay more.
Don't play their game.

Our $10.63 Date Night



We're not big selfie takers...can you tell?

My hubby and I don't get a lot of date nights like we used to.  Life has a way of making us too busy and distracted.  I do believe that it's important for couples to have date nights and time away from the kiddos - even if you're not sure how to act without them.  ;-)

Last night we had a date night and it cost us a total of $10.63.  Well, that's not including the $1.16 we spent at Home Depot.  Yes.  We make stops in at Home Depot on our date nights.  Doesn't everybody?

First off, we paid $0 for babysitting.  We were lucky to have my mother & father in law to stop by and watch the kiddos for a few hours.

Next, we ate at Seasons of Japan.  Last week I got a $20 voucher for only $8 from Living Social.  I shared the special link they gave me with my friends on Facebook and since three of them also bought it I got reimbursed the $8 - making my $20 voucher free.
Our total at the restaurant came to $8.59 after our $20 voucher.

After we stuffed ourselves silly with yummy food we headed over to the movie theater.  I had some free movie tickets from purchasing Kellogg's products with Spidey Codes on them.  I spent $2.04 after coupons on 12 cereals that had codes on them - 6 codes gets you a free movie ticket.  This made our movie tickets $1.02 each.
We watched How To Train Your Dragon 2 because it was the only thing that was interesting to us and wasn't sold out.
We did feel VERY guilty about watching it without the kids.  So, I'll be taking them next week to see it.  And I must say it really was a GREAT movie.  It made me laugh and cry.

After we got out we stopped by Starbucks to get a couple of White Chocolate Mocha's. YUMMY!  This also cost us nothing because I got a $10 voucher last week from Groupon.  I used my credits from sharing deals to get it for free.
Free is how I roll.

Our Summer So Far

I know I've been a little quiet here on the blog, but we've been busy nonetheless.
What exactly have we been busy doing?

Oh, yes.  We do love the beach.


We went tubing and fishing.

We took some walks and fought off the mosquitoes.

We tried our hand at re-growing some veggies like celery and potatoes.

We've had major success at bug catching in our yard.

We've done a lot of grilling out.

We did some swimming.

We've eaten a sinful amount of ice cream.

We also caught a couple of movies and ate way too much pizza.  We still have 6 weeks before school starts back.  Let's see what else we can get into. ;-)

What have you been doing this summer?

A lesson in how to Outnumber Hunger

A lesson in how to Outnumber Hunger

I will admit, when I first signed on to volunteer at a food bank for at-risk kids it was for somewhat selfish reasons. The year was 1988 and I had just moved from Texas to Minneapolis and wanted to meet new people in my new hometown. I chose the organization that was closest to where... View Full Post

FL Residents: Tax Free Hurricane Supplies

I'm just finding out about this now, but you have until tomorrow (6/8/14) to take advantage of it.  Florida residents get tax waived on certain hurricane supplies.  I particularly like the tax free portable generators and I really need to stock up on both flashlights and batters.
I really wish Georgia did this!

 Included are:


  •  Reusable Ice Packs
  • Flashlights, Lanterns, Candles etc. $20 or less

Publix June Fresh Savings Event


We invite you this month to discover new meal pairings and complimentary savings throughout the store during the Fresh Savings event, available at Publix.

Look for ways to pair your favorite products with fresh grocery store items. Save on smart-start breakfast pairing, a great dinner combination or a spin on dessert!

I already used the $1 off fruit when you buy five Yoplait Greek yogurts coupon.  I'm not a really big breakfast person so my morning meal usually consists of fruits and yogurt - with my coffee of course.   I'm also planning on making another trip to get $2 off some tomatoes when I get some Tostitos Tortilla chips for my hubby.  We're picky about our salsa around here and only use fresh tomatoes.
Any time I can save money on produce or meat I'm a happy girl!
