Ask Cuckoo Readers

Posted: April 24, 2012

The last few weeks I’ve seen Easter baskets plummeting to now 90% off if your store has some left. Here’s some ideas for uses for them from reader C. Taylor:

Be on the lookout for sturdy, playful Easter baskets!

This weekend my Giant Eagle had all baskets priced at .50 each!! To me that is a great price especially when these were marked between $3.99 – $5.99 each! New storage containers and baskets always inspire me to really have fun with my stockpile. Although the end result is not complete, here is a photo of  big enough baskets to fill numerous items including hair dyes, cleaning supplies etc.

A few Clearance Easter Basket Ideas:
Bowls for potpourri  *Cut handles off and add your favorite potpourri  mixes. This eliminates unnecessary toxins from being sprayed in your home*

Mother’s day gift baskets or any occasion *Cut the handle off and get creative

Storage storage storage! 

My little one thinks I’m so terrible when I ask her to pick up her toys. These fun sturdy baskets help her move her toys from room to room and even gave her fur real pup “Shaggy” a carrying case!

The back of all shirts say “Cuckoo for coupon” – the only difference is the color of the words. Chicks dig men who coupon” is white and grey, and the back of “My coupons are sexy and you know it” is white and yellow.

We have tons of Cuckoo for Coupon Deals men’s shirts finally!  I got my husband to pose for a picture above but he was a little impatient and didn’t want to pose in all shirts 🙂  If you picked a saying for one, I sent you your free shirt!

The Cuckoo Father’s Day Giveaway will be June 6th, where you can enter to win one.  If you don’t win you can order one, I only charge $12 – $14 shipped (depends on shirt sizes) which, I think, is pretty cheap since I am not a manufacturer and don’t order by the hundreds, I can’t produce & ship them as cheap as stores do.

We made the grey a darker grey and it contrasts a lot better than the original shirt we had, I am excited about it.

The following prices all include shipping, sorry I don’t know why they charge me more to buy 2XL but they do.

Here’s the size chart for the women’s shirts – they all look like this:

Men’s sizes are the usual sizes for men’s shirts.

#1: My wife is a better couponer than yours-

#2: My coupons are sexy and you know it  –  SOLD OUT in LARGE.  1 size XL left, 4 size 2XL Left.

#3:  Chicks dig men who coupon

I've always wanted to walk up to a stranger and hand them a  briefcase and whisper  "you know what to do"  and then walk away.

I think the water one is a reflection as there should be no sugar in it.  But what surprises me is that Mtn Dew isn’t healthier then Red Bull.   I mean they are both unhealthy, but I thought Red Bull would be the worst .

I just got this email that I entered a giveaway March 1st for  Dr. Talbot’s Diaper Rash  on the Nuby facebook page, and I won and they are shipping it out to me!  I’ve got a baby on the way too so this was a great way to make my morning!

Don’t know why my screenshot turned out so bad, lol!  Well let me know if you won too!

UPDATE: I just got another email saying I was one of the first 50,000 to order the exercise bands I posted about yesterday, so I am getting that too!  I hope a lot of you got that one too.

I feel like such a dork that it had to come to this!  Well, lesson learned.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can read my Stuck post!

Any help would be appreciated!

UPDATE: I am glad to hear I am not the only one with this problem I felt so silly when I couldn’t get it off. Well I got my hand freezing cold for about 5 minutes in a bowl of ice water, then held it up so the blood could rush down as someone suggested, then doused it in Windex, and it was not able to come off. I think those tips would work if I had tried them a week or so ago, but I think I am too late. So I called a jewelry store and am going to have them cut it off for me. Kinda sad but they said they could fix it after it is cut off. It’s free to get it cut off I just have to pay to have it put back together, he said $35. Sounds cheaper then going to the ER so I am heading there now! Thanks again everyone!!!

There’s a new survey company called Idea Shifters taking applications. This site is so new it isn’t on my list of good vs. bad survey companies yet.  I just signed up and will let you know how it goes.  It seems pretty straight-forward.  If you have experience with this company, can you leave a comment below to let me know?
