The Thrifty Divas

The Thrifty Divas is a really fun site to check out. They offer a lot of links to free printable coupons, free offers, and information on how to join consumer panels. It is one of those sites that I check out each morning because you never know what you might find! I was recently the winner of one of their giveaways. It was this Honey Kix Cereal gift pack that contained a free coupon for a box of Kix, a really cute container that holds milk and cereal that Alex can take to school for a snack, a large cereal storage container, and also a honey comb! It was awesome! I was shocked to win! They are now having another Yoplait Yogurt giveaway, so head over and check them out! Like I said, you never know what to expect!!

Money Saving Ideas

This has got to be one of my favotie sites. It is filled with tons of ideas for cooking meals for under or around $5.00 for the entire family. The meals are very easy to follow, contain gluetin free, vegetarian options, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The site also utilizes ways to incorporate stock piled foods and fresh grown produce into each recipe. Check it out!


The Couponizer is a wonderful way to keep your coupons handy and organized when going shopping. I have been using one for years! I have had so many people ask where I got it! I don't know how I ever lived without one. My husband actually bought it for me from a lady he works with that was selling them. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had married the perfect husband! The Couponizer has many great features that help keep everything right in a handy little container- coupon stacker( just spread it on the table, place coupons in the marked category) a plastic holder for customer loyalty cards, a slot for coupons to be used that trip, a slot for coupons to give the cashier, a slot for coupons that expire that month, and many many more great features. I HIGHLY recommended it, and have given many as gifts myself!!

Health and Food

I have recently started a fitness and diet plan. Let me tell you, it's not that easy. Overall, I am starting to feel and look better. I have been using the Wii Fit that was originally purchased for Alex and I LOVE it. At first, I started with doing just the yoga. Now, I'm doing aerobics, strength training, and also balancing(although apparently I'm not too balanced!). So far, I have lost 18 pounds, which is hard for me to believe sine it is after all a VIDEO GAME!!! I do it religiously first thing in the morning when Alex is off to school.

As for diet, I would like anyone who hasn't already try Kashi Go Lean Crunch. This is the most delicious cereal I have ever tasted. Not only is it good for you, but it stays crunchy until the last bite. It keeps you full all day, too!! I notified the company to let them know how much I enjoyed it, and they were super sweet!! Great customer service! They even sent me several coupons! I have since tried other of their products, and they were all fantastic!
