Excellent Video on Organic Farming

I love, love, love this kid! He wants to grow up & be an organic farmer because he researched the conventional food system in our nation & was appalled by it. YES! It is appalling! My favorite quote from him is regarding the higher cost of organic food items: "We can either pay the farmer, or we can pay the hospital."

It's worth a watch. He's cute & he knows more about this subject than most adults I know. Kudos, Birke!

Giveaway Winner

The winner of The Nutria Frog Kingdom book & CD is Flutter By Nature (great screen name!). Congrats!

I've Lost That Frugal Feeling...

Cue Usher, because I'm about to make a confession. About a month ago, I was at a baby shower for a friend of mine & the subject of my blog came up. I was asked "How do you find the time to clip the coupons, organize them, find the deals, blog about them, & still have a life?" The answer is simple: I don't.

Don't get me wrong; I love a good deal as much as all of you. And while I used to have my coupon binder organized, it isn't now. Here is my big, scary, shocking secret: Since the start of June I have clipped a grand total of 5 coupons (which I used all in one deal at Rite Aid). With my daughter home from school & the fact that she had some health issues over the summer, I didn't have time to clip coupons. I have a stack of newspapers so big, I'm confident that if I laid them end to end they would stretch halfway to Texas.

At first I felt guilty about it. But I came to the realization that as with all things in life, there is a season. And my season for clipping coupons was obviously not during the summer. So I let the guilt go. The world would still spin if I didn't cut coupons out of the Sunday paper. My family would still eat, we'd have shampoo & toothpaste (thanks to my stockpile!), we would still have clean clothes, & our lives would go on.

The reason I am sharing this with you is to let you know that I'm not perfect. None of us are. We're real people, living real lives, & sometimes life gets in the way. So don't feel bad if you miss a deal, your coupon stash isn't organized, or you haven't clipped coupons in months. It happens.

Having said that, I'm ready to get back to couponing. I would like my grocery & drug store budgets to be less & I know that coupons are the way to reduce them. I'm hoping some of you will be on board, too. I'll be posting more grocery & drug store deals, so get ready for it. If you're relatively new to couponing, this will be the perfect time to jump in. I'm going to discuss coupon organization, coupon lingo, the drug store game, etc.

So there you have it. I lost my frugal feeling for a while & my budget showed it. But baby, I'm back: coupons, scissors, paper cuts & all! I hope you guys stick around for the ride.

BMIM's Dream Dinner Deal

I've been working on this deal for a few weeks now, & I'm super excited to announce that Dream Dinners has come up with a deal for BMIM readers! If you're wondering "what the heck is Dream Dinners?" I'll fill you in.

Dream Dinners is a "you make it & take it home to bake it" place. In fact, they were one of the first (if not the first) to start this industry & they started right in my neck of the woods! However, they are now located in 29 states. You book a session, head in & assemble your meals using their fresh, already prepped ingredients, take them home, freeze them, & then pull them out & simply cook them for dinner. This eliminates the chopping, slicing, dicing, etc. It's dinner made easy!

So here's the deal: Dream Dinners had a promotion on TV recently, & they have extended the same deal now to BMIM readers. It's a pretty sweet deal, if you ask me! For new or returning guests that have not purchased from Dream Dinners in the last 12 months, they are allowing you to pick 18 servings for $74.95. You can make your meals either 3 or 6 servings, so depending on what you choose, you will get either 3 or 6 dinners for that price. Additionally, you will get one 6 serving dinner for free! So, that brings you to a total of either 4 or 7 dinners (depending on how you divide your 18 servings) for $74.95!

This offer is valid through 10/31/10 & is available at select locations nationwide. I believe all locations, with the exception of 2, are participating, so if you have one near you, your chances are pretty good the deal will work. Click here to watch a quick video about how the Dream Dinners process works & then click on the "Start Now" button to take advantage of this fabulous offer.

Thanks so much, Dream Dinners!

Eco Friendly Kids Book & CD Giveaway


If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you will know that I am passionate about living a green (ish) lifestyle. We eat mostly organic items, recently purchased a hybrid vehicle, recycle, etc. So when I was asked to review an eco friendly kids book, I was thrilled!Bayou Bennett wrote The Nutria Frog Kingdom & was gracious enough to send me a copy of the book along with the accompanying CD.
The book is about two kids, Randy & Tina, who go on an adventure in the swamps of Louisiana. They meet King Leo & he tells them about the nutria frogs & how they are at risk of disappearing because the environment is a mess. The kids realize that they have the ability to help & get their entire town to help plant trees, recycle, pick up trash, & more.My daughter loved the idea of kids being able to make a difference. I loved how it reinforced the notion that little things can add up to a huge impact.
The CD of music by southern musician, Washboard Leo Thomas is a great bonus as well! It's fun to listen to & my daughter was pretending to tap dance to it in the back seat of our car. Listening to the CD in your car is a great way to bring up the concept of not littering, recycling, etc. when you aren't sitting reading the book. In my opinion, anything that gives adults another opportunity to discuss the subject with kids is great. I have a feeling my daughter will be pointing out every piece of trash on the ground on her way to school for the next few weeks!
Ms. Bennett is offering up a copy of The Nutria Frog Kingdom & the CD to one lucky BMIM winner. Here's how to enter:
  • Leave a comment & a way to contact you.
  • Go "like" The Nutria Frog Kingdom on Facebook & leave a comment letting me know you did.
  • "Like" BMIM on Facebook & leave a comment letting me know you did.

That's it...super easy! The winner will be drawn at random on Monday, September 27th at 9 pm PST using Random.org. Good luck & stay green!

Tasty Tuesday

Kristen, a loyal BMIM reader, posted this recipe on the Facebook wall last week, & it sounds so yummy I had to make it today's recipe. I think it would be the perfect game day dip with some nice tortilla chips!

Green Dip (I say call it Shrek dip & your kids will likely eat this up!)

Take one pouch of guacamole, 1 brick of cream cheese, 1 bunch of cilantro, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 jar of Salsa Verde (the green salsa) 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp garlic, 2 tsp lemon juice, and blend in a blender (may need more milk to reach consistency of salsa). Let sit for 30 minutes to blend flavors & serve with chips.

Thanks for the recipe, Kristen. If you have a favorite recipe that you think BMIM readers would love, email me!

Hanna Andersson Outlet Sale

OK, this sale is enough to give me a case of the vapors! Starting on Thursday & running through Sunday, Hanna Andersson Outlets will have their Overstock sale. Here are a few samples of what you can find:

  • Baby Sleepers for $10
  • Backpacks for $15
  • Lunch Boxes for $10
  • Sweats for $15-$25

It's worth nothing, many Hanna items are made with organic cotton. Even if it's non organic cotton, they typically meet the Oeko Tex Standards used in Europe that test for over 100 harmful substances.

Honestly, Hanna Andersson clothes are so well made, they look virtually brand new wash after wash. Plus, they use European sizing, so my daughter has often gotten several years of wear out of an item instead of outgrowing it in a few months. Hanna Andersson clothing costs more, but I feel that in the long run, you definitely get your money's worth out of them. You can search for the outlet locations here.

Tasty Tuesday

I just saw this on PCC's Facebook wall, so I haven't tried it yet. But dang, it sounds delish! Which is saying a lot, because I'm not a huge fan of walnuts.

Go check out the recipes for Walnut Crusted Steak & Fennel Bean Salad. Thanks, PCC!

Honest Tea & Honest Ade $.50 at Wags

I was at Walgreens today & saw Honest Teas & Honest Ades on sale for $1.00 each (normally $1.79). On the rack were blinkies with $1/2 coupons. So, I bought 2, used the coupon, & got 2 bottles for a $1! That's a great price for an organic drink, so keep your eye out for them the next time you're at Walgreens.

$1/1 MorningStar Coupon

If you like MorningStar Farms products, be sure to print off the $1/1 coupon from their website.

Thanks, Free Snatcher.

The Children's Place has their Halloween costumes on sale for 30% off both in store or online. If you want to shop in store, print out this coupon & save an additional 15%. The coupon is valid through the end of September.

My daughter wore a costume last year from The Children's Place & it was adorable. She picked out a costume from another store this year, but I highly recommend The Children's Place costumes; they are cute, age appropriate, & not too mature (seriously, some costumes out there are just sleazy). Go check them out!

Lastly, you get the “Let’s Do Lunch” freebie on any purchase, so make it as cheap as you can (unless you really have a specific item in mind). The Curtain Call section is items that are on sale, so pick one of those.

Magellan GPS Units Under $60!

Wow, check out these 2 deals on Magellan GPS units from Amazon. First, you can get this Magellan RoadMate 1210 3.5" unit for just $54.63. Or you could opt for this Magellan RoadMate 1340 3.5" unit for $56.88. Both come with free shipping as well!

Honestly, you will be hard pressed to find a better price on a Magellan GPS unit. Perhaps on Black Friday, but I honestly don't think you will save more than $10 or so.....& you will have to fight the crowds. Ordering these would be a much easier way to go!

HOT Daily Deals at Target

Target's daily deals are all personal care related today & well....I'm a product junkie, so this caught my eye. There were several deals that I think are worth taking a look at & all come with free shipping:

2 Digital Frames $99.99 Today Only

Digital frames have been a hot ticket item for Black Friday the last few years. If you wait for Black Friday you will likely be able to get one cheaper than today's deal but a) it might be a smaller frame, b) they probably won't have touch technology, & c) you will have to get up in the middle of the night & fight 300 people who want 1 of the 5 digital frames in stock. Buying this deal would make your life much more simple & allow you to sleep in on Black Friday, so read on.

Today only at Shnoop, you can get a 2 pack of Pandigital 10.4" PanTouch digital frames for just $99.99. You will even receive free shipping today! Get one for yourself & give one away as a gift. Give both of them away. Keep 'em both....it's up to you.

(Note that these are remanufactured units. My guess is that you won't even be able to tell, though.)

I've heard from several reliable sources that we can expect to see doublers this Sunday in the Albertsons ad. Start planning how you're going to use them to maximize your savings.

In fact, take a look at what my friend & BMIM reader, Andrea scored last week using hers. See all that stuff in the photo? She paid $4 OOP for it & got a $2 Catalina coupon to use on her next shopping trip. So she really spent $2 net for all that stuff using MQ's & doublers!

I'm always happy to see your savings, so take a photo of your next shopping trip & email it to me. I'll post it online so we can all be inspired!

Oh Frost....why do you have to rock so much? Why must I crave your Smoky Bacon Maple Bar like a junkie craves a line? At least the next time I buy a dozen, I'll feel like I somehow stuck it to the man.....while wiping maple glaze off my chin.

Sears: Shoes from $3.99 Shipped

Holy cow, this is a great deal! Sears is offering an additional 50% off select clearance shoes right now. It is hit or miss as to which shoes get the additional discount; not every pair is eligible. Just add the shoes you like to your cart & see if the extra 50% off is applied.

Wait...it gets even better! Use code: SEPTSHOES20 to get an additional 20% off & free shipping as well! Again, not every pair of shoes will be eligible for the 20% off, but it appears all shoes will get the free shipping. I found a cute pair of dress shoes for my daughter that were $9.99 & with the extra 50% off & free shipping (they did not qualify for the additional 20% off) they were $4.99!

The kids shoes start at $4.99, so if you find a pair that qualifies for the additional 20% off, you could get them for $3.99 shipped to your door. Don't forget to look at the adult shoes that are on clearance, too!

Thanks, Moms By Heart.

FYI: Puberty Starting in Second Grade

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I don't comment on my political affiliation. However, I am quite vocal about the importance of a more green, natural lifestyle. And here's one more reason why I feel it's so important: Last month the journal Pediatrics published an article stating that more than one in ten girls are starting to develop breasts by age seven, with even higher rates in some communities.

One theory as to why girls are starting to enter puberty so young is their exposure to chemicals containing endocrine disruptors. These chemicals are found in common products we all likely have in our homes. However, the Toxic Substances Control Act currently does not require that chemicals be tested to assess their ability to disrupt hormones. This is simply baffling to me!

Aside from being awkward, early puberty poses some potentially serious side effects. Higher risk of breast cancer, depression, low self esteem, & earlier sexual activity have been attributed to the early onset of puberty.

What can you do? Write your Congressmen & ask for them to sponsor an update to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Purchase more natural or organic foods, cleaning supplies, makeup, etc. Keep your children active (obesity can also bring on early puberty). Read up on this subject. Get involved.

Huggies Pure & Natural Diapers $.17 Each!

Head to Target & get a great deal on Huggies Pure & Natural Diapers. Here's how to work this deal:

  • - $3/1 Target coupon
  • - $3/1 MQ printable coupon
  • Pay $13.99, or just $.17 per diaper (price will also vary depending on what size diapers you buy because of how many are in the package)!

Thanks, Coupon Clippin' Daddy!

Tasty Tuesday

I've been super bad & forgotten to post any recipes the last few weeks. I am beyond lame! Since school has started & we're all likely running around, here's another slow cooker recipe for you. It's from the amazing blog, Crockpot 365.

Slow Cooker Marmalade Curry Chicken

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves or thighs

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth

Place the chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the marmalade, dry ingredients, & chicken broth & pour mixture on top of chicken. Cover & cook on low 6-7 hours or on high about 4 hours. Serve with rice.
