Free Movie Ticket with Pop Tarts

You can get a free movie ticket to Star Wars when you buy 5 specially marked boxes of Pop Tarts. Pop Tarts are only .98 a box at for $5 you can get a movie ticket (and 40 pop tarts...)

You have to cut out the "movie vouchers" on each box, fill out a form that is inside the box and mail it off. You can only request one movie ticket per envelope, but their is no limit. Last time I did a movie promo, the ticket was actually good for any movie, so I'm hoping that's the case this time, too!

I think I saw some internet coupons for poptarts. I'll let you know if I can find them!

Have you heard of Nature Source cleaning products? Would you like to try them for FREE?

They are FABULOUS! They have become my new favorite line of cleaning products. They are made by the SC Johnson Company. They are their new line of "green" products, you know...biodegradable, plant based, 99% natural...all that good stuff. They contain no ammonia, bleach, phosphorus, or dyes, are not tested on animals, and are safe for plumbing and septic systems....hmmm....but how do they clean???? GREAT! I love everything about these cleaners, and they smell wonderful! They have 4 cleaners: Natural All Purpose Cleaner, Natural Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Natural Glass & Surface Cleaner with Windex, and Natural Bathroom Cleaner. I was very skeptical when I tried them, thinking, "What? No chemicals? Plant-based? Lactid Acid???? These are gonna STINK!" Boy was I wrong! These Lactid acid and plant-based agents ROCK!
My toilet bowl sparkles!
My windows & mirrors have that streak free shine!
My bathtub soap scum has scrammed!
And my countertops and doorjams are clean and smudge-free!
Mmmm...and did I mention the scent? Mmmm...
Well here's the contest...I have 3 coupons left from my *bzzkit. They are for 1 free bottle of your choice of any of the Nature Source cleaning products. You can have up to 4 entries:
1. Leave your name as a comment.
2. In a separate comment, tell which product you are most excited to try and why.
3. Blog about this contest on your blog and include a link to my blog, and then leave me a link to it as another comment. (Wow! THAT was confusing!)
4. Follow me (see the "Followers" at the side) and then leave me a new comment telling me you are following me...oooh, that sounds creepy...
Good Luck! Contest will end May 31st. I will announce the winners in a new post on or around June 1st.

Some More good deals at Albertsons

Look on the Mac & Cheese 5 pks and on the Capri-Suns for a peel off coupon for "1 FREE 10-pk of Capri sun when you buy a 5 pk Mac & Cheese" Both of these are a part of the Kraft Promo!

Also there are Catalinas that goes with the Honey Bunches of Oats, the Kraft BBQ sauce, and the Mac & Cheese and they are all ALSO a
part of the "Save $3 on $10 Kraft Promo" (see second post down for more info on this).

Honey Bunches of Oats
between 4/24 and 5/17
Buy 3 get $2 OYNO
Buy 4 get $3 OYNO
Buy 5 get $5 OYNO

Kraft Macaroni & CheesePurchase between 5/8 - 5/31 (Doesn't start until Friday!)
Buy (4) & get $1.00 OYNSO
Buy (5) & get $1.50 OYNSO
Buy (6) or more & get $2.00 OYNSO

Kraft BBQ sauce 18 oz. or largerPurchase between 5/1 and 5/24
Buy 4 get $2.00 OYNSO
Buy 5 get $2.50
Buy 6 or more get $3.00 coupon OYNO


$10 buy 4 HBO's
-$ 3 Kraft Instant Savings
$ 7 Total and get $3 OYNO for buying 4 HBO's
$ 4 TOTAL if repeat transaction and use $3 OYNO


$12.50 buy 5 HBO's
$ 2.50 Capri Sun

-$ 2.50 peelie coupon on Mac 5 pak for free Capri sun with purchase
$11.50 TOTAL PLUS get a $5 OYNO for buying 5 HBO's!
$ 6.50 TOTAL if repeat transaction and use $5 OYNO!

There are LOTS of great ways to mix and match these Catalina offers with the Kraft Promo. Remember, you can do multiple $10 Kraft deals together ($10, $20, $30, etc, and get the $3 off for each, but you can't get multiple OYNO's for the same thing in one transaction,(they have to be separated) but you CAN get OYNO's for DIFFERENT things in one transaction...confused????

$12.50 for 5 HBO's
$ 5.00 for 6 18 BBQ sauce
$ 5.00 for 5 pk Mac & Cheese
$ 5.00 for Mac & Cheese
$ 2.50 for Capri Sun
$30.00 Subtotal
-$ 9.00 for three Kraft "Save $3 on $10" Promo
-$ 2.50 for Free Capri Sun peelie
$18.50 SUBTOTAL and get back $5 OYNO for HBO, $2.50 OYNO for BBQ sauce,and $2.00OYNO for Mac & Cheese, so it's like paying:

But if you bought 10 boxes of HBO in one transaction, you would only get ONE $5 OYNO, NOT two of them

Free Meal at Carinos!

From now through Friday, May 8th, Moms can get a free 3 course meal with the purchase of one meal. I checked the website, and it did NOT list Idaho as a participating location, but I called my local Johnny Carinos and asked them, and they said that YES, they are participating! WooHoo! I do believe it's now date night! So call your local Carinos to see if they are participating!

Some GREAT Albertsons Deals this week (May 6-12)

There is a great Kraft Promo this week. For every $10 you buy in Participating Kraft Products, an INSTANT $3 comes off (I LOVE IN$TANT gratification!)

One of the BEST deals on this promo is the Kraft Ranch Dressing. They are 4/$10, but on the displays are $1.50 off of one bottle. Buy 4 bottles, use 4 coupons, minus the $3 Instantly and, Voila! total is $1 (so only .25 each! Not too shabby)

Also, Kraft 18 oz BBQ sauces are $1 each AND are on the Promo AND have a Catalina offer! So if you buy 4, you get a $2 OYNO, buy 5, get $2.50 OYNO, buy 6 get a $3 OYNO. So if you incorporate 4 or more into your $10 Kraft purchase, not ONLY will you recieve the INSTANT Kraft $3 off, you will also get $$$ back! Yahoo! I love money back...

BUT WAIT!!! It gets even better! STARTING FRIDAY, there will also be a Kraft Mac'n'Cheese if you buy 4,5, or 6 Mac & Cheeses in your order, you will get ANOTHER OYNO! Buy 4 Mac-n-Cheese, get $1 OYNO, buy 5 and get $1.50 OYNO, buy 6 get a $2 OYNO. So if you mix and match the BBQ sauces and the Mac'n Cheese, you will be rockin! For example:

$6 Buy 6 Mac&Ch
$4 Buy 4 BBQ
$10.00 SubTotal
-$3 Instant KRAFT Savings
-$2 Mac&Ch OYNO
Even better if you can get your hands on some of these coupons: In the SS coupon section from this Sunday's paper is .75 off of one BBQ sauce. In the parade magazine from this Sundays paper was also a coupon for BOGO for the Easy Mac, so you could get it for even less!

See for the complete printable shopping list. The area in the gray section lists all the items included in the Kraft Promo. Make sure to check it out!

Free Meal at KFC!

Today and tomorrow only (May 5th and 6th), you can go to this address: to print off a coupon for a free meal from KFC. It is for 2 free pieces of grilled chicken, 2 sides and a biscuit! You can print up to 4 coupons until they reach their max number. The site is really busy, so it may take a while to get through. Good luck! You can redeem the coupons at KFC anytime between now and May 19th (except not on May 10th...?) These are only available to print Tuesday May 5th and Wednesday May 6th.

UPDATE: You can also print the coupon from Oprah's site at:
That might work better if the other site is too busy.

WARNING: When I printed these, the "watermarks" didn't show up on my printer...I'm assuming it's because it's really old...maybe I need to replace my ink...but KFC won't accept the coupons if the watermarks don't show. The watermarks show up as little light-colored dots behind the Expiration date and a darker colored area in the paragraph below KFC COUPON Also, my neice, Havelah, said hers printed out all with the same barcode, so they wouldn't accept them, they should have different barcodes.

Just got back from Albies...

I bought 20 of the Dannon Light and Fit yogurts (price is 20/ $10) and ended up paying $6.50 for 20. When you buy $10 worth right now, you get an instant $2 off, then they had a blinkie coupon machine right in front of it for "buy 6, get one free!" so I used 3 of those, taking another $1.50 off, making it 20 yogurts for $6.50. Not too bad!

I also bought some of the Ball Park ANGUS BEEF FRANKS lower fat, full taste Hot Dogs There is a coupon in the ad to get these for $2.58 a package, limit 4 packages (reg price is $5.49) On the Lower Fat packages, there were $1 peel-off coupons. I took 4 to the register and asked the cashier if the lower fat version counted (it just set "assorted" on the coupon). She said, "Well, lets see if it scans!" The coupon scanned, and so I got them for $1.58 a package.

Shelf Reliance at Costco

Thanks Jama for this info:
I was just at Boise Costco today and they are selling the Shelf Reliance food storage shelving there through next Saturday. The guy told me they are lots cheaper during this promotion than they are online. One of the larger shelves which normally sells for $459.00 is $269.00 right now if you buy it there. Just thought I would let you know so you could add it to your blog. If anyone is thinking of buying these shelves, now is a good time.
