Dollar Tree Market!

Dollar Tree Market opened in Chesapeake, VA in late April. From what I've gathered it is a concept store and the only one is off of Portsmouth Blvd in Chesapeake. They offer the normal Dollar Tree things and also fresh produce, a bakery, meat, custom cakes and other grocery items. Not everything is $1 at the Dollar Tree Market. But unlike other Dollar Trees they DO ACCEPT MANUFACTURER'S COUPONS! Whoo hoo! They do not have a coupon scanner yet so if you go in with a ton of coupons expect to be in a line for a little bit. I was pretty excited to see this today.  I go there every Sunday to pick up my Sunday Papers for $1. I just wanted to pass it on to you!

Disclaimer: I was not paid for this post and I did not receive any sort of compensation. I just happened to be there today and saw this.

Questions about coupon clipping service.

I've never purchased coupons from the internet before. But I think it's time to try it out! There are three coupons that I so very much want! My question to all of you coupon shoppers is...

What is your favorite coupon clipping service?!
Do you use multiple services to get all of the coupons you want?

Breyers YoCrunch 100 review and giveaway! 10 winners!

I recently had the chance to try the new Breyers YoCrunch 100 Calorie Pack. Let me tell you just a bit about the yogurt first, then I will tell you what I thought. (Then we'll get to the giveaway!)
  • The YoCrunch 100 calorie packs are sweetened with Truvia, which is a natural sweetener. 
  • The YoCrunch 100 calorie packs come in 5 yummy flavors! Cheesecake Yougurt with Graham Cookie, Strawberry with Granola, Vanilla with Chocolate Chip cookie pieces,  Vanilla with Chocolate Creme Cookie pieces, and Vanilla with Nestle Buncha Crunch Candy pieces.
  • The yogurt also has added Vitamin A and D and is a good source of calcium and protein (being that I don't eat much meat, this is a plus for me!)
  • YoCrunch 100 Calorie packs retail for about $2.99. Use the Store Locator to find it near you!
My opinions
I received Strawberry yogurt with a granola topping. I've always liked granola in my yogurt, so I was happy to get to try this one. I thought the yogurt was good! I could taste the difference with the Truvia sweetener vs. a traditional sugar. It didn't have that overwhelming "diet sugar" taste to it at all! I did let Mr. Destructo taste a bite of mine. He must have liked it because he begged for more, but I'm a mean mom and told him no. (He just finished a huge breakfast, he didn't need anymore food!) I had to eat the other 3 packs hiding behind the pantry door. My kids are like sharks to blood. I think they are both on the "SeeFood Diet" (See Food, must eat) Anyways, back to the yogurt. Overall, I liked the YoCrunch 100 calorie pack and provided I had a good coupon, I would certainly buy it over and over. (If you know me, I don't buy anything without a coupon.) Next time I think I will try the Cheesecake with Graham pieces!

The Giveaway!
Breyers has offered to give 10 of my readers a coupon for 1 free YoCrunch 100 Calorie Pack.
This giveaway is open to the US only.
Due to recent giveaway issues in the blogger world, there will only be one way to enter. There will not be any "extra entries". I hope this makes it more fair for those of you that don't have blogs, use Facebook or use Twitter. While I would like for you to WANT to follow by Google Friend Connect, Facebook, or Twitter, it will not help you win. You can also visit them on their website!
This giveaway will end May 14th at 11:59PST. My kids will take turns choosing the winner from whatever bucket-like toy they have left in the floor. It will all be video taped for your viewing pleasure. It is the best way I can think of to be completely random and fair.

Mandatory entry:
Tell me which flavor you think you would like! That's pretty easy right? You can find the flavors in this blog post or on their website. Make sure you leave your e-mail address or a way for me to contact you. Good luck!

Disclaimer: I was not paid in cash for this review. I was sent the product to try and to give my honest opinion. Your experience may vary.

Free McDonald's Frappes

McDonald's will be having Free Frappe Friday from 7am-7pm starting today and running through May 14th. You get a free 7oz sample at participating locations. I hear it is only for Northeast North Carolina and Southeast Virginia. I would call your location and verify before heading out!

Help Fun Forest be fun again!

Vote for Fun Forest to receive $30,000 from Sears to rebuild the park after it was burnt down by arsonist!

On April 1, 2010, someone set fire to the Fun Forest playground at Chesapeake City Park leaving in its place only charred ruins. The following week was spring break for area children, with Fun Forest being a likely destination for the younger ones. What greeted them as they entered the park was crime scene tape surrounding a beloved playground. The park was conceived by the Chesapeake Division of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce in 1994, and built by nearly 2,000 volunteers from all over the city and beyond. At the time, it was called the largest handicapped-accessible park on the East Coast. Already the Chesapeake Department of Parks and Recreation has received contributions and offers of help from many people outraged by the destruction of Fun Forest, but much more is needed. Please send the Sears Lawn & Garden Crew to Chesapeake and help us rebuild Fun Forest.
So far the park is in the lead with over 12,000 votes! I hope they can get it rebuilt soon so my boys can go there for the first time this summer!

Aspiring chef, aspiring chef.....

I'd like to tell you this is a stock photo of Kosher Salt. You know one of those photos that you can get online to put in a blog post. Stick with me on this people. This is a 16 ounce box of Kosher Salt. I use it to bake my homemade bread. It's delicious by the way. This week I was planning some Cinnamon Rolls. Mmmm.
But this isn't a stock photo. In fact this is a photo I just took. Let me zoom out a bit.

This is my kitchen floor. A floor with 15 ounces of Kosher Salt on it. I guess Mr. Destructo thought he would "help" me in the kitchen. I keep reminding myself that maybe he's a fantastic chef in the making. You know, starting him out early. This isn't the first or even the second time he's done something like this. Remember the Blackening Seasoning incident? About 4 days after that mess, we had a Black Pepper mess. I should have seen this coming. When I was pregnant with him I watched a lot of Rachael Ray. When he was an infant, we both watched Rachael Ray and he really liked her. Maybe I shouldn't have watched her so much! Again, reminding myself, he's going to be a great cook one day! I guess I better find a coupon for some more Kosher Salt. Too bad I just got home from the grocery store. Sigh, another day in a house with 2 little boys.

Looking for an Etsy store!

Good Afternoon everyone! I pulled out the summer hats for Blue Eyes this morning, only to find that his head is apparently a lot bigger than I thought. None of the half a dozen hats fit. Being that he still has very thin hair from his surgery, I gotta find some hats for this boys big ol' head! So I wanna know, what are your favorite Etsy or Mom owned business that sell cute little boy hats and on a budget?
See in these pictures not so bad. A little tall up on top.

Here is the video of Mr. Destructro picking the winner of the "You've Been Sentenced" gift pack! Even though he is wearing Toy Story jammies, picking from a Toy Story bucket, and sitting in a Toy Story chair, this was not sponsored by Toy Story! (Maybe it should have been?!)

Congrats number 28!!! You have 48 hours to respond to my email or we will pick again! Thanks to all who entered! Special thanks to McNeil Designs for this giveaway!

Almost Twins?

This has been bugging me for a little over two weeks now. As a mom with 2 boys very close in age (14 months) I hear everything from "you have your hands full" to "aren't you glad you are getting it all out of the way early". Then I heard a new one. One I hadn't ever heard. "Almost twins?" Yes, she said that like a question. Almost twins... Hmmm. Either you are a twin or you aren't. Either your momma carried you and your brother in her belly for 9 months and delivered at the same time or she didn't. Is there really an "almost" about it? I was told by another mom with close together kids that when they get older people will ask if they are twins simply because a 6 and a 7 year old don't look that different. But a 1 and a 2 year old? Really? Almost twins?! How is that even a question? There really is no "almost" about it. Although I do sometimes dress them alike, it's not often. There is a significant size difference in these boys! "Almost twins" What a weird question.Ok. I just wanted to share that with you, maybe you got a little chuckle out of it. Maybe it was only weird to me. Either way. Happy Friday!

My little boys are growing up...

When we first moved into our new house, I couldn't wait to decorate the boys rooms! Both of my boys will eventually be in toddler beds. Did you know that toddler bedding is not easy to find in stores and if you do find it, it is pretty cheesy! Like Elmo or Diego. I love the bedding set I got for Mr. Destructo. It was so hard to find something dinosaur that wasn't cheesy. I love this one! It suits a little boy, but it will grow with him. I love the big boy colors! Not light blue and pale green, but dark red, tan, and olive green! Wanna see it? You might be jealous and want it for your dinosaur lover too.

Blue Eye's bedding set on the other hand... not liking it. I did his room in jungle/safari. I bought a set off of Ebay and I liked it a lot online! I liked it a little in person, and now that the ties for the bumper have all been popped off (after only 2 months of use), I don't like it at all! Not to mention that when I washed it the very first time all the colors ran together and no matter how much I tried to remedy it it didn't work. I even debated returning it. BUT... Auntie and Grandma to the rescue! Grandma got him super cute jungle sheets from the Tiddliwinks Jungle set. Auntie made these embroidered wall hangings and a pillow that match the sheets perfectly! Now, I love his jungle room again! See, aren't they awesome! I love that they will eventually be part of his toddler bed set up!
Remember all of those canvas pieces I bought? Well I bought paint in colors that coordinate with their bedding sets. I'm going to let the boys paint pictures for their room next weekend. Should be fun!
So what theme have you done in your little boy's room? Don't you love those wall hangings? Now that I have finished the letters for his room, I can hang it all up! I'll post a picture of it all soon!

Freebies on Tax Day

Wow, there are a ton of Freebies for tax day! Here is a list I have compiled from around the bloggy world.

$2 off a Rotisserie Chicken from Kroger

Kroger has put out a coupon for $2 off a Rotisserie Chicken. Last week when I picked up a chicken it was $4.99! This is a great coupon!

Thanks Deal Seeking Mom

Great Sale at Micheal's!

Michael's is having a great sale this week! A few things that I went in for were 2-pack Artist Canvas and acrylic paint.
  • 2-pack 18x24 Canvas $8.99 (Reg. $15.99)
  • 2-pack 16x20 Canvas $5.79 (Reg. $9.99)
  • 2-pack 11x14 Canvas $4.79 (Reg. $8.49)
  • 2-pack 8x10 Canvas $3.59 (Reg. $6.49)
That alone is a good deal! But there is also a 40% off coupon that is good on regular priced and sale priced canvas!
I purchased:

2-pack 16x20 = $5.79 x 2 = $11.58
2-pack 11x14= $4.79 x 2 = $ 9.58
2-pack 8x10= $3.59 x 2= $7.18
Use 40% off coupon here
Acryilic paint= $0.33 x 12= $3.96
Final Cost: 28.34- 40%= $17.00+ $3.96= $20.96+ tax.

$17 for 12 canvas' is about $1.41 a piece! Whoo hoo!

So what am I going to do with all of these? Well I might let the boys finger paint on them in coordinating colors with their rooms. That worked really well last time. I also might do fabric panels with them. That is super easy and a budget friendly way of adding color to a room!

Thanks Smart Couponing for posting the prices of the canvas.
