I am located in Utah, and I try to post the hottest local store deals and national chain store deals. But if you are located elsewhere, you may want local deals specific to your state.  Here is something I found to connect you with local bloggers; and I hope my site can represent Utah on it:

Update: I got my card in the mail today! I went to Emergency Essentials in Provo and got two #10 cans of Egg Bowtie Noodles for $4.99 each, so after my free $10 gift card  I paid $0.28 OOP!  Read below on how you can get your free $10 gift card too!

Gift Card Giveaway

Simply try Emergency Essentials free Food Storage Analyzer™ tool and write a quick review of it on your blog to receive a free $10 gift card from Emergency Essentials. Everyone gets their free $10 gift card good for their canned food items, which can be bought online or at one of their in-store locations!

I love this analyzer. Like most mormons I am trying to get a one year food storage in case of job lose, famine or natural disasters.  I am a shy of my goal though; I used the analyzer and found that my current food storage is 130 days for my family of 4 people.  At least I know where I am at now.  What’s your food storage goal?  And what are you getting with your free $10 gift card?  I’ll let you know once I get my gift card what I get!

Giveaway has ended!!! See winners here.

Now as you can see in my pantry picture above, I am a cereal fiend and I eat a box a week by myself. Just ask my husband. General Mills provided me with a free cereal coupon through My Blog Spark, and I wanted to taste-test it, to see if taste was affected by the reduced sugar content. If you haven’t heard, GM has committed to single digit grams of sugar per serving in kids cereals. I was game to taste test.

I got one box of Lucky Charms; I was in the mood for a classic.  Loved it. Reduced sugar? I couldn’t tell; in fact, my 2 1/2 year old daughter even ate the brown pieces instead of just the marsh mellows!

Now General Mills, through My Blog Spark, has also provided me with 3 more coupons for free cereal, each coupon is good for up to $6 on any General Mills cereal; so you can get the BIG boxes!  I am giving these away to 3 lucky readers and will mail them off to the 3 winners.
