Freezer Cooking?

For the past few weeks, I've spent quite a bit of time online trying to find new recipes and some inspiration to get behind the stove and get CREATIVE. Today I came across this post about freezer cooking. Because this way of cooking forces you to plan your meals ahead of time, you aren't tempted to eat out as much because you always have homemade food ready to eat within minutes. And it's healthier too!

I have a co-worker who swears by this method, so I may have to give it a try this weekend.

What about you? Does anyone do any bulk cooking? What do you like most about it? What do you like least about it? Any favorite recipes you want to share? :)

Thank you Krazy Coupon Lady for sharing this post!

How to Score Free MAC Makeup!

If you are a MAC girl, then this post is for you! :)

I recently came across a very interesting article on The Krazy Coupon Lady's blog. I had no idea that MAC had a program that encourages recycling and rewards its customers with free makeup.

If you are a die-hard MAC wearer, I encourage you to click here to find out how you can score free MAC makeup. And no need to worry, this isn't some kind of scam. I would never do that to you! :)

Saving Some Green

Maybe it's the warmer weather, the greener grass, or just that I've missed blogging...

Whatever it is, I am pumped and motivated to keep this blog going. Just because I haven't posted anything on here since January doesn't mean I've stopped couponing. I still clip coupons, seek out the sales, and get the paper every Sunday. Confession: my Husband gets the papers for me every Sunday. He is absolutely the BEST!

In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day today, I decided to sport my green Howdy t-shirt and head to CVS and Target to save some green :)

Paid: $25.58
Saved: $38.21
You got it! All of this for only $25.58. Not only was I able to save some serious "green", I also scored a $5 Target gift card and $5.99 ECB from CVS. Net cost after receiving these two items was only $14.59. We spent more on Chinese takeout last night than we did for all of these household necessities.Remember my motto? I like to save money on the ordinatry to enjoy the Extraordinary.

And T-Jins was just that...Extraordinary ;)
