I have heard great things about this place but have never been since it is more expensive that using the $10 coupon at Fantastic Sams!! But I decided to try them out today and loved it!! I highly recommend trying them out...2 Sisters work there (1 is the owner which cut my hair), and they moved here from Valdosta, GA and still have people drive from there to get their hair cut! So if you are looking for a place call them-it is $20 for a shampoo/haircut with no blowdry...

Hey, It's kind of late notice but the Cuna Street Toy Shop is going out
of business and today is the last day. Everything atleast 40% off and
the toys are going for cost, maybe a bit over cost. Very cute Melissa
and Doug puzzles are $5ish, lots of playmobile, some very cute calico
critters, and lots of games/learning toys. They have a wide variety.
I'm very sad they're going out of business. The toy shop is located in
the old pharmacy downtown. It's one of the stops on the trolley tour.
Here's my best attempt to describe how to get there: If you're on
Anastasia Island and you go over the bridge into downtown, You'll dead
end into Flagler -take a right, When that road dead ends, turn left and
the store/parking lot is on your left (I think immediately).

Thanks Deb L!!

She said they still need some more people to do studies on size 1 diapers for girls and size 1 diapers for boys-so if you have any kids in that size-I would definitely call!

Go here to print out a $2 off coupon for Honey Bunches of Oats with Pecans...these are BOGO this week at Winn-Dixie (hopefully it includes this one)-if so then nearly free cereal when use both coupons!!

Thanks Krazy Coupon Lady!

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

I was in Betty Griffin this afternoon and they have a basket on the counter with tons of free coupons! Mostly for campbell soup, prego sauce, and V8 splash...
I have mentioned this before but wanted to bring it up again! I called Arnold's Bread recently and Nature's Pride to ask for coupons...Nature's Pride sent me a coupon for a FREE loaf of bread! And Arnold's sent me 2 $1 off coupons (you can call once a year to get those)...these go BOGO a lot!

But I recommend when you are making dinner (I love multitasking!) or have some free time Call the 1-800 numbers on the back of the products you use the most and ask to be placed on their coupon mailing list!

If you want to call to get coupons for the bread here are the numbers!

Nature's Pride: 1-800-483-7253
Arnold's: 800-984-0989

And also if you have a product that is bad or something wrong with it-do not just throw it away-call the 1-800 number on the package and they will send you replacement coupons! I have had yogurt be bad, a lean pocket not in a wrapper (weird!), and tons other stuff and they always send me replacement coupons plus extra coupons!

Some other tips I have learned recently: You can freeze cooked brownies! I had no idea and tried it and it tastes the same! And freeze homemade cookie dough-I just did this and again turned out the same and it was great to just pull out the freezer and put in oven instead of having to make a mess making them (I've frozed store bought cookie dough a lot, but just didn't know you could freeze homemade kind)! I'm sure this is probably old news to most of you but I am sure there are some out there who didn't know (like me!!)

In case you are wondering...

Great Deal on Photo Books at CVS

The 6x8 photo books are on sale 7.99 and you get 7.99 extra bucks back. In the ad it says the limit is 1 but I saw on some blogs that it is really 5. I went to CVS tonight and made 4 each time I got extra bucks back, so each one was free!! A few things to know before you go. You have to make it in the store (so don't take the kids!) They are 10 pages and they are only 1 sided pages. These books aren't as nice as some that I've made on snapfish but for free they are great! I made one book for us, one for each of the grandparents for Christmas and I took pictures of all of the artwork little Jordan brought home from school and made that into a book for him. I would definately take advantage of this deal!
