Wordless Wednesday: Sunset at the Park

I know Wordless Wednesday posts are supposed to be "wordless" but don't you just love fun summertime trips to the park?! Hours of FREE fun for you and your kids! This day was a particularly photographic day and I have been getting bored with photos of my groceries on here so I thought I would share!

Why I Love Kraft First Taste!

I just wanted to take a moment to declare my love for one of my favorite online communities! I have talked about Kraft First Taste in some of my Mailbox Monday posts each month but this month has been particularly bountiful so I wanted to give it it's own post!

Earlier this month I was able to request coupons for 6 free full sized products!
- Ritz Crackerfuls
- 100 Calorie Cheese Bites
- Oscar Meyer Deli Meat
- Kool-Aid Fizzers
- Kraft Homestyle Macaroni Dinner
- Digiorno Deep Dish Pizza (Not Pictured, Already Eaten!)

I also got a full sized box of 100 Calorie Pack Fudge Petites that came from Kraft but I don't even remember signing up for so I am not sure if it came from First Taste or not!

This program is so easy to be a part of too. Once I signed up I just checked occasionally for offers. When an offer comes in, I request the coupon, the coupon is mailed to me and I pick it up at the store with my weekly trip! Then after I try the product I log in and complete a very brief survey. That's it! I have gotten to try the above foods, Philadelphia Cream Cheese Minis and Digiorno 200 Calorie pizzas as well! Definitely worth signing up for!

Go HERE to sign up for free today!

Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade $1

**Update** This deal is going on for another week! YAY!

Sorry I meant to post about this forever ago and now here it is the last day! But it is a good price so I still wanted to let you all know about it!

Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade - $1.00 each!
No Coupons Needed!
If you go in and your store is out of stock, request a rain check, this is an EXCELLENT price for this juice! Too bad there aren't any coupons out right now or it would be free!

Question: Does anyone in the Central Washington area get doublers? From what I have seen Wenatchee doesn't get them, but if that is different let me know, I know I have a lot of Wenatchee area readers!

Free Toothpaste at Rite Aid!

From now til Saturday (7/3) you can get a tube of Crest Pro-Health toothpaste for free (or better than free with a coupon) after rebate!

Crest Sensitive Shield Toothpaste - $2.99
- Submit for $2.99 SCR
Final Price: FREE!
The June P&G coupon inserts had a $.50 off 1 coupon so this turns into a $.50 profit if you have it!

I believe to get the $2.99 sale price you may have to have an Wellness + rewards card, Rite Aid's new rewards program. Its free, it gives you coupons and you can get a $5 off $25 purchase coupon when you sign up so why not?! I was able to use some UP rewards (like Walgreens Register Rewards) to pay for my toothpaste which made it an even better deal! Sign up HERE for the card.

There are several other good Rite Aid deals this week, they are worth checking out at For The Mommas if you are heading in for your free toothpaste anyway!

Giveaway: $50 CSN Stores Gift Certificate!

As you know, a few months back we spiffed up our master bathroom with a new vanity, paint, flooring and lighting and did it all for about $500! I think it turned out so nice and I never knew we could do it so cheaply! I think what helped us save the most was the fact that the vanity, sink and mirror came as a package deal for about $259 and the rest was very inexpensive. Check out this beautiful vanity, sink, mirror combo I found at for only $218! is part of the CSN Store family, a network of over 250 online stores that sells EVERYTHING! What do you need? Baby supplies, cookware, furniture? There is a CSN store available for all of that! Check out their complete list of stores HERE.

Good Earth Dinner Kit Review and Giveaway!

Coming to stores this June, Good Earth Dry Dinner Kits! Easy to prepare meals made with 100% whole grains, no trans fats, no artificial flavors or preservatives and no MSG. All you have to do is add your own meat!

They will have five delicious kits to choose from including: Mediterranean Chicken with angel hair pasta, Spicy Citrus Glazed Shrimp with angel hair pasta, Herb Crusted Chicken with mushroom risotto and Tuscan Chicken with penne pasta.

Good Earth courtesy of My Blog Spark sent me a gift pack including the Mediterranean Chicken to try for myself and review on here!

While I do usually prefer to cook from scratch and avoid pre-packaged meals, I have to say, this was delicious! It was extremely easy to prepare and tasted great, my 2 year old even liked it. All I needed extra was a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and two chicken breasts. I also added some green peas and a bit of freshly shredded parmesan cheese.

Honestly the only gripe I had was that the coating on the chicken didn't stick very well once you added the wet ingredients, it would have been better to cook the chicken and the sauce separately and then toss everything together at the end. All in all, I thought the flavor was great though. It would be nice to have one or two of these in my stockpile for days when I really don't feel like cooking or going out to eat!

Great News! Good Earth through My Blog Spark has offered to give one lucky Fabule$$ly Frugal Mom reader the same gift pack that I received to try for themselves!

**Update** This giveaway is now CLOSED! Did you win?! Check HERE!

The winner of the giveaway will receive a Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit, two sets of bamboo flatware, two bamboo dishes, a bamboo utility board and a 100% recyclable grocery tote!

To Enter: Just leave a comment on this post with the flavor of the Good Earth dinner kit you would like to try out, your name and email address so I can notify you if you win!

Extra Entries: You can receive up to 4 more entries to the giveaway! The first one above is mandatory, please leave a separate comment including your email address for each entry.

1 - Subscribe to my blog through your favorite reader and leave a comment letting me know you are a new subscriber or a current subscriber!

2 - Follow me on Twitter and leave a comment letting me know you are a follower!

3 - Tweet the phrase below and leave a comment letting me know you did!
"Enter to win a Good Earth Dinner Kit & Gift Pack from @SamanthaWitt!"

4 - Blog about my giveaway on your blog, leave a comment with the link where I can see it!

The giveaway will end at 9:00 pm PST on Sunday, June 20th, 2010. All entries received after that time will not be counted. I will choose a winner through and the winner will have 24 hours to respond to the email I send before another winner is selected.

Peets Coffee & Tea BOGO!

It's going to be a sunny couple of days here in Seattle, FINALLY! Head to your nearest Peet's Coffee along with THIS coupon and get a free iced beverage when you buy one for a friend! It is only good for Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13th.

Go HERE to find your nearest location! There are five stores in the Seattle area including one in Redmond!

Printable Coupon: Earthbound Farm Baby Spinach!

Go HERE to enter your email/zip and print your coupon for $.75 off any Earthbound Farms Organic spinach! (Man, I wish Costco took Manuf. coupons!)

If you know me you know that I am obsessed with Green Smoothies! I make one for Naomi and I every morning and they are SO delicious! Trust me on this you CANNOT taste the spinach in these drinks and it is an excellent way to add veggies, iron, folic acid and omega-3's into your diet every day!

Here is my favorite Green Smoothie recipe:

- 1 cup milk or liquid yogurt

- 1/2 cup crushed ice

- 2 tbsp. milled/ground flax seed

- 1-2 tbsp. peanut or almond butter

- 1 large banana

- 3 large handfuls of fresh spinach

I usually blend up the milk and spinach first and then add the rest of the ingredients. DELICIOUS! If you don't like peanut butter you can omit the ice and pb for 1 cup of frozen berries. The smoothie comes out a dark purple and tastes amazing! Experiment with what you and your kids like!

More Free Samples from Walmart! is a great place to get free samples! They are always reliable and you receive your sample in a timely fashion, none of that 2 month business!

Here are a couple that came out today!

All Oxi-Active Detergent HERE! (Thanks Money Saving Mom!)

Playtex Tampons HERE! (Thanks Thrifty NW Mom!)

Safeway: Updated Coupon Policy

A while back I did a post about various coupon policies at stores.

Safeway has recently updated there policy online HERE. I highly recommend you check it out and print a copy to keep in your coupon organizers for those sticky situations that tend to come up!

Here are my 2 favorites!

8. Safeway will accept valid manufacturer coupons that display another retailer’s logo or name.
9. Safeway will accept valid Catalina manufacturer coupons that are issued to a customer by another retailer.

This means that they will take the manufacturer coupons printed from Target's website and they will take Catalinas that have printed at other stores like Target, Albertsons, Fred Meyer, etc. WAHOO!

Metropolitan Market: Kirkland Grand Opening Continues

Hello again to all my local readers! Last week I wrote up a little post about my grand opening experience at the new Metropolitan Market in Kirkland. Well I must say, we went back on Tuesday (not as busy!) and came away with our free pineapple, 2 lbs of bananas for $.64, 4 lbs. of Tillamook Cheese for $5.94 and ahem... 4 cupcakes from Cupcake Royale! (They were on sale, and might I say cupcakes are yummy but even yummier when you get them on sale!)

Alas, the sales last week are over but there are a couple of great deals worth mentioning for this week:

Whole Seedless Watermelons are on sale for $1.97 each!

Local Snoqualamie Gourmet Ice Creams are on sale for $1.97 each!

Jennie-O Turkey Franks are on sale for $.50/pack!

Kirkland Locals: Check your mailboxes, today I received a Met Market flyer with a coupon for FREE Frozen Kobe Beef Gourmet
Hamburger Patties!

Their grand opening parties with lots of samples are still going on throughout the next week. Saturday (6/12) may be a great day to go check it out because you could win FREE groceries from Organic Valley! Between 11am and 2pm some Organic Valley farmer-owners will be there to answer questions and surprise 2 shoppers with a week's worth of free food! The only requirement is that you have an Organic Valley product in your shopping cart already. Good Luck!

Fun Pampers Deal This Week!

**UPDATE** It seems like the ad/photo is wrong. A Fabule$$ly Frugal Mom has reported that there are only 140 diapers in the size 4 bin which makes the diapers about $.32/each, YIKES! You can get Pampers cheaper than that most of the time so I wouldn't really recommend this deal.

If you are a "Pampers Snob" like me then here is an interesting deal you can take part in at Toys "R" Us or Babies "R" US this week.

The Limited Edition Pampers-in-a-Bin tubs are on sale for $45.99

It is a 14 gallon Rubbermaid tub full of Cruisers diapers, $35 in coupons, a Leapfrog book and a Splashers beach ball! The ad says it is over a $90 value and is available in sizes 3, 4 and 5.

According to the picture, the size 4 bin has 176 diapers inside. Without coupons this works out to be $.26/diaper which is not great since you can get Huggies at Costco for $.24/diaper.

However, if you have any coupons this could be a sweeter deal. I found some $2.00 off Cruisers coupons recently at Safeway so that would knock the price down to $.24/diaper plus all the bonus items and coupons which seems like a pretty good deal to me, plus you would be stocked on diapers for at least a few weeks and have a new storage bin!

To see the ad go HERE!

Hurry! Pinecone Research Accepting Applications!

My FAVORITE online survey company, Pinecone Research is currently accepting applications! You will receive $3 for every survey completed and sometimes get to do free product trials and will get paid again when you complete the trial! I get paid directly to my Paypal account and it usually gets deposited the day after I take the survey!

The applications probably won't be open long so sign up now!

Locals: Kirkland Met. Market Grand Opening

Good Morning Friends!

I just wanted to do a quick post about the grand opening of a new grocery store in the Kirkland area. The Metropolitan Market just opened today in the Houghton neighborhood. Now the Met. Market is not a store I usually shop at because the prices are substantially higher than my usual stores. For Example: 1 lb of organic strawberries is on sale for $4.00 this week, but at Fred Meyer they are on sale 2 for $4. Yikes!

However, I do love a good grand opening celebration! They have some great events going on this month at the store that are sure to be full of free samples and such. I also got a coupon in the mail for a free pineapple!

Go HERE to check out the schedule of events for the rest of the month!

This morning I braved the crowds and stood in line forever and was sadly not one of the 1st 500 guests to get in. Those lucky peeps got a bag full of goodies and coupons, boo hoo! I did get a free reusable shopping bag & magazine for my efforts though and Naomi was also happy to get a balloon. Plus, had it not been only 10 am I probably would have waited in the 2nd line for a piece of cake!

I didn't stay long but I am going to go back in the next few days because they had bananas on sale for only $.27/lb and the baby loaves of Tillamook cheese for $3.97. I plan to get a couple using the $1.00 off Tillamook cheese coupon from the Safeway Dairy books! $3.00 for 2 lbs of cheese is definitely a stock up price. Plus I still need my free pineapple!

Go check it out and let me know what you got to sample and deals you get!

Free Sample: Cottonelle Ultra

As you probably know, when I find a good deal on TP I STOCK UP! I am just now getting down to my last 24 pack of TP that I paid under $2 for about 3 months ago. I consider toilet paper a good deal when I can get a double roll pack for under $.25/roll. Did you know that Coscto TP is $.49/roll?! I used to buy that stuff every time I went, if I had only known then what I know now!

Cottonelle is a great brand that often has great coupons available. Walmart is currently offering a sample of Cottonelle Ultra and Fresh Wipes. I am hoping that it also comes with a good coupon or two! Sign up HERE!

Walmart is also offering some other samples including Purina One (Dog or Cat Food!) , Playtex and Crest White Strips!

Thanks Thrifty NW Mom!
