December 31, 2009

Kudos to the Des Moines Coupon Mom http://www.dsmcouponmom.com/2009/12/free-lip-smackers-at-target.html for this tip from her blog:

Target’s got select 3-packs of Lip Smackers on clearance 75%  which makes them 99-cents.  Using this coupon: http://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=qlhxcgd74341699&bt=wi&o=58456&c=BB&p=g64DoRuH you can get $1 off. 

Ta-da!  Now, not every Target will have these on sale, so I’d strongly suggest calling ahead.  Also, with these “bricks” variety of printable coupons, you can press the “back” button on your browser a few times and print out two. Cheers!

Holiday Hectic-Ness…
December 30, 2009

Hi Everybody–

I’m still here, but it’s been SO CRAZY these past few days, I haven’t had a moment to sit down and blog, let alone find any deals to blog about! 

Don’t worry, I have a fresh batch coming later on this week.  I just figured we’d go full force once 2010 started and things settled down again. 

Before I go for the day, take a look at my new coupon I got in the mail yesterday:

Valued up to $3.99. Woo hoo!  (I'm not kidding, I have 5 bags, all different varieties, all in different stages of being eaten, in my kitchen right now.)

I got it from the Stacy’s deal I posted a couple weeks ago.  Become a friend of Stacy’s on Facebook, get a coupon for a free full-sized bag.  Nice!

Happy Holidays, and more deals to come soon,

Dion

Happy Holidays! (How To Get Free Broccoli @ Target!)
December 24, 2009

At least once every few days, someone in public asks me: “How do you wake up at 2am everyday?”  

As a child, my mother made the BEST Chinese broccoli.  Unlike most young kids, I ate bunches and bunches of broccoli.  In fact, I would rather eat my mom's garlic and oyster sauce broccoli rather than dessert.  No joke.

Usually I say it’s because you get used to it.  And you do.  Not that it becomes any easier for your body, it’s just part of the territory. 

Lately, people have been asking how I like working holidays.  That’s just part of the business too.  We all have worked holidays and weekends and odd hours at some point in our careers. But my answer was something along the lines of this: 

“I’ve grateful for all I have, and it’s the least I can do to help.” 

It’s true.  This year has been extremely rewarding.  Being at this point in my career, at my age.  To have a supportive group of friends who, happen to be scattered across the country (doing the same thing I’m doing, chasing a dream) but are always there for me.  To get engaged to the most caring, generous and genuine man on the planet.  (Oh yes, and grateful even for those little stinkers, Georgie the Yorkie and Frankie the Weenie dog!) 

My weenie dog is so spoiled.  Here he is... I was taking a nap and realized Frankie was sleeping right next to me...on his side...under the covers like a person!!

The least I can do is stick around a couple days and work.  Everyone else in my world will still be there after Christmas.  Plus, the support from all of you has meant a tremendous amount to me this past year.  I probably would have stopped blogging, if it weren’t for all of your support.  

Ok, enough of my weepy Christmas thanks…let’s just cut to the chase. HOW TO GET FREE BROCCOLI: 

GO HERE! http://offers.e-centives.com/mcp/pd.cfm?encp=bw3Edh8NsU3vzmfu%2BCqxk1gE5kAdfbx6dC45DH8m6FuvNQDwYVl3xOH31DkRj79yzb%2BSNmiA403U%0D%0Ak0Vud5AkAA%3D%3D

(And you’re wondering why you had to weed through all that blog to get to the deal! ) Cheers and Happy Holidays, LIM 

This is my latest favorite snack.  Goat cheese on the left, and tomatoes in olive oil with caperberries on the right.  I don't know if caperberries are the same as capers, but they're delicious.

FREE Sausage Biscuit @ Waffle House…NO PURCHASE NECESSARY!
December 22, 2009

Waffle House has had some great printables this season, like the free pie slice and free waffle offer.  Now you can get a FREE Sausage Biscuit…no purchase necessary!  (Although, I personally think a glass of milk would go nicely with anything biscuit related.)

I had never had biscuits and gravy until moving to Kansas City.  Very addicting.  Don't tell my bootcamp instructor!
