Veggie Delights: Baked Pasta Casserole

Meagan over at Frugal Fun Fortune shares with us a meatless dish every Friday. Be sure to visit Meagan to see this week's dish: Baked Pasta Casserole.

Casseroles are perfect for making a double batch and freezing the second one for a quick and easy dinner one night. Simply remove from freezer, stick in oven, and dinner is ready!

Thanks so much Meagan!

Mega Swagbucks Friday is here!

For those of you who don’t know, Swagbucks is an excellent way to earn a little extra money by doing the same things you do everyday. What are Swagbucks? They are "points" you earn by simply doing your normal routine searches using Swagbucks for your search engine. It's that easy!
There are other ways you can earn Swagbucks too:
  • Go to the Swagbucks homepage, click on the "Special Offers" tab in the left column, click on No Obligation Offers, skip through several ads, and you will get 2-4 Swagbucks. You can do this daily!
  • Go to the Swagbucks homepage, scroll down until you see the "Special Offers" section in the middle of the page with pictures. Watch the videos to earn 1-4 Swagbucks.
  • Go to the Swagbucks homepage, click on "Daily Polls" tab and get 1 Swagbuck simply by answering the daily poll.
  • Go to the Swagbucks homepage, click on "Trusted Surveys" and earn Swagbucks for answering surveys. No limit to how many Swagbucks you can earn a day!
  • Be sure to check your messages from TSG and the blog frequently for chances to find Swagcodes to enter and earn more Swagbucks.
  • Invite your friends to Swagbucks and every Swagbuck they win, you'll win as well!
Once you are a Swagbucks member you can earn larger amounts of Swagbucks for your searches on Fridays! You can earn as much as 1000 Swagbucks!

Cash in your Swagbucks for prizes like giftcards to some of your favorite stores. For example, 450 Swagbucks= $5 Amazon Gift Card. I'm saving mine for upcoming birthdays and Christmas. Free gifts..woohoo! =)

Join Swagbucks, search, and start saving!

Rebate Roundup 6/20-6/26

Thanks so much Greta!

Tipster Tuesday: Buying Coupons

Have you ever got a coupon in the Sunday paper for an item you love and buy all the time and wish you had more of that same coupon? You can purchase more of a specific coupon by using coupon clipping services. You will pay a small processing and shipping and handling fee, but you can get 10-20 copies of the same coupon.

Buying coupons has been an excellent way for me to stock up on valuable coupons easily and save a ton of money in the process. For example, I purchased 20 of the $2/1 Pampers Wipes coupons ($40 value) on Ebay for $12. These wipes are currently on rollback at Walmart for $1.97 each making them FREE with these coupons. So I was able to get the $12 I spent back, save an additional $28, plus get 20 boxes of baby wipes FREE!!! Now I have a huge stockpile and won't have to buy baby wipes for a long time! =)

I recommend using the following sites:

Helpful tips:
  • Be sure you know exactly what product the coupon is valid, the exact value (Is it $2/1 or $2/2?), how many quantities you are buying, and the coupon doesn't say "Do Not Double."
  • Is shipping included in the price of the coupon or extra?
  • Keep in mind the expiration dates of coupons and the shipping time involved before you purchase coupons online. You want to have enough time to use them before they expire.
  • Make sure you buy from highly rated sellers on Ebay.
  • Use only 4 or 5 of the same coupon per transaction especially if you are getting the item FREE. The cashier might think it looks suspicious and give you a hard time.
Happy Couponing!

Sunday Sentiments: Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day is all about honoring our fathers and showing them how much we love them. Don't forget that we also have a Heavenly Father that cares and loves us no matter what. Be sure to take a moment and thank Him as well.

Hope all of you have a blessed week! =)
