Cash Wise Run

Today I had a VERY successful trip to Cash Wise!

I spent about $27 on the nose, here is what I ended up with:

  • 3 cans of veggies (free item of the week)
  • 4 cans of fruit (2 Food Club, 2 Dole)
  • 2 Betty Crocker Mini Delights Cake Bowls (found in the clearance cart, plus had coupons!)
  • A box of GoGurt for Henry
  • 2 bags of frozen carrots
  • 6 cups of yogurt
  • 2 pears
  • 1 onion
  • 2 green peppers
  • 5 lb bag of potatoes
  • 3 boxes of jello
  • 1 box of Betty Crocker instant potatoes
  • 2 Tony's Crisp Crust pizzas
  • 2-3.5 lb packs of Gold N Plump Chicken
  • and a big 'ol HAM!
Such a great grocery trip!  See the coupon match-ups HERE

Indoor Playground at Hutchinson Rec Center

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 am to 11:30 am there is an Indoor Playground at the Hutchinson Rec Center.  The cost is just $1 per child / $2 per family - or a $35 family pass good through April 30, 2010.

I've never been to this, so I'm not sure what kind of playground equipment they have, but it sounds like it would be a great way to spend some of these cold winter days!

There are quite a few other activities going on at the Rec Center as well, check out the full schedule HERE

Search to Earn a $25 Disney Gift Card!

I've told you a couple times about Swagbucks, but now I have another reason...and it makes me very, very excited!

First, Swagbucks...what is it?

It's a website that you search through, like Google, only you can earn "bucks" for searches you do.  Your account builds with these Swagbucks and you can use them to enter various contests, or purchase gift cards and other items.  You search results are populated through Google, so they are very reliable!  It's a super simple way to earn a bit of extra on the side with normal internet activity you probably already do.  (There are a couple other ways to earn as well, but I won't go into all that...unless you want me to!)

I currently have 109 Swagbucks, and I truly don't do much searching throughout the day.  I earn maybe 1-4 bucks a day.  (You don't get credit for EVERY search you do-it's random).  With those Swagbucks I have fully intended to purchase a few $5 Amazon.com gift cards at 45 Swagbucks each.  Score!

HOWEVER, I just found they have a DISNEY GIFT CARD!  Since Disney World is where we choose to vacation, this will be a great benefit for a future vacation!!  It's a $25 Gift Card and is currently running at 295 Swagbucks.  So, I've got a ways to go...but it's worth it!  I will just keep searching away and letting that account build!!

If you have any questions about Swagbucks, feel free to ask!  Or, check it out and sign up HERE

**If you sign up through my link above, I will earn some extra bucks, and you'll help me get closer to that Disney Gift Card!  :)

Cookie Recipe E-Book

Target has a $5.00 printable coupon HERE good on ANY Kodak camera (or frame).  I read various reports that some of their disposable Kodak cameras are only $4.00, making this free!

I will be at the Hutch Target this week and WILL be checking this one out!!  Henry really enjoys cameras lately, so this would be a fun one to give him for a Christmas gift - the results would be mighty interesting!  Ha!
