GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED – VIEW WINNERS INFO

-YOU MAY HAVE TO BE LOGGED INTO FACEBOOK TO VIEW THE VIDEO ABOVE OR GO HERE TO VIEW IT!-

This month for my Coupon Insert giveaway I am giving away 30 Coupon Inserts from July 25th & Aug 1st. If you are new to couponing, here is my huge training guide on how to use coupon inserts to save BIG at drug stores and grocery stores – including videos.

In the video I show my long-term food storage in #10 cans. It goes 3 rows back and most cans last between 10 -30 years, so I don’t have to rotate it too often. I have been working on it for 3 years. The best time to get #10 can food cheap is at Macey’s sale every 3-4 months.

I also have some 45 gallon buckets of wheat I couldn’t show in the video because I shot it with my cell phone and it will only let me do 2 minutes.  I know the quality isn’t as good as my other camera, but I can upload the video straight to Facebook and not have to go through the hassle of changing formats like on my regular video camera – it used to take me 2 hours to change formats to get videos up on YouTube!  So until I get a flip camera, this is what I’m using.

Anyways, let me know if you know of any other cheap ways to build up your food storage!

HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN:

  1. Leave a comment below talking about where you are at with your long-term food storage.

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended, entry #229 won – view more details here

DownEast Basics has the cutest modest clothes!  Completely affordable as well.  I got the shirt shown above, and LOVE how light the fabric is!  Lovin’ it for these hot Utah summers! Their tops run around $20, much better then other designer clothes stores.

But my favorite thing about DownEast clothes is: their clothes are quite classy looking, so they stay in style a long time.   I don’t buy clothes often, so when I do I want them to be stay in style.

If you go to order clothes on their online store, keep in mind that their sizes seem to run big.  I usually wear a medium top, but on Down East clothes I always wear a small, or sometimes even an extra small!   Makes me feel good 🙂

I grew up in Rexburg, ID and loved shopping at DownEast Outfitters next to Albertson’s.  Cheap Lucky jeans were my favorite thing in the world when I was 16 so I loved DownEast.  I thought it was the only location, but they are actually in Utah,   Northern Cali, Idaho, Wyoming, Spokane, WA, Arizona and Las Vegas.  Plus, all their items can be bought online and shipped nationwide.

GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED – VIEW WINNERS INFO

Soda Stream makes home-made soda pop in re-useable containers so you don’t have to buy soda anymore.

Soda Stream gave me a soda stream and some flavors to try out.   Normally you put a lid on the liter and shake it gently before you drink it. In the video I don’t put the lid on because I couldn’t find it; my husband thought me looking around for it was funny so we shouldn’t do a re-do.

Using your own home carbonation system has benefits:

  • Less cans and bottles that end up in the trash – the liter you use to make the soda is rinsed out and used over and over again.
  • Save space with concentrated sodamix and reusable carbonating bottles
  • No more lugging and storing heavy, bulky bottles and cans
  • No more hassles with empties in the trash or recycling bin
  • No batteries, no electricity, no plumbing
  • Over 30 flavors at the touch of a button

Where to Buy Soda Stream’s online store.  Cost: About $.25 per can of soda.  $.25 per liter of sparkling water.

One SodaStream carbonator makes 60 or 110 liters, equivalent to 170 or 310 aluminum cans. When empty, the carbonator is refilled and reused.

One bottle of flavor, as seen in my video, makes 12 liters or 33 cans of soda.

My overall opinion? Especially if you are environmentally friendly, this product is for you.  It’s also nice to be able to control the amount of carbonation you get because you can do 1-3 squeezes of carbonation per liter.  The flavors were very similar to generic brands of soda you’d buy at the store.  And it’s lots of fun at a party.

Giveaway: One lucky reader will get The Fountain Jet Soda Lover’s Start-up Kit (approx. $100 retail value.) It includes the Fountain Jet, CO2 makes over 100 liters of soda, 2 reusable carbonating bottles, a sample pack of flavors, and 3 full-sized flavors of the winner’s choice!

HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN:

  1. Leave a comment below stating your favorite type of soda (or pop for us West coasters!)!

Optional Extra Entries – please submit another comment for each extra entry:

Hey! Wednesday’s almost over and you thought I forgot to post a new giveaway, huh? Well, I have just been having issues. I finally go at a new cell phone, yeah!

Triple yeah!  I went two weeks without one, since we don’t have a house phone it was no fun.  Needless to say the kids won’t be playing with my new phone 🙂

It records videos. So I recorded this video showing the coupon insert stash I’m giving away, but it recorded sideways for some reason… and I couldn’t get it to upload to YouTube. Will have to have the husband look at it later! Well for now, just know I am working on it.

If you don’t know how to get Sunday coupon inserts yourself, read my post on that here.

Here’s how to enter to win the coupon insert stash shown in the video:

What would you do with $100 to spend at A Candy Store?

Probably the same thing I did when they let me choose candy to review – browse their site for hours and keep finding more things you want to try.

A Candy Store sells any new, classic or retro candy you can dream of.   If you are thinking of it, right now in your head, they probably sell it.

A Candy Store has lots of classic candy, such as every flavor imaginable of Salt Water Taffy, but they also have fun novelty candy as well. I was trying to think of something creative for my review, and well…

Check out the video below to see how I used some paint shop lollipops at my mom’s paint store in Rexburg.  It’s not a very exciting video, but thinking of something original to do with candy was much harder then I anticipated.  A child sneaking in candy is always cute to me though.  And yes, I know I’m cheesy.

When I first saw these adorable felt playhouses, I thought genius:

  • They fit right over card tables
  • They can be easily taken down (perfect if you don’t have extra space in your house)
  • They can be indoors (perfect for the 7 months it is cold outside in Utah!) or outdoors during good weather
  • You can attach more toys to the outside for kids to move and play around with

I was given a copy of the 48 page pattern ebook.   It included the information on everything you would need to buy, how much to buy, and detailed pictures of how to do every step, including Heat N Bond (which I hadn’t even heard of, so I was glad there were step-by-step pictures).

I admit, I’m a newbie at creative anything. The tips are in-depth, and no detail is forgot, right down to how many inches the window should be from the top and bottom of the playhouse.  I need specific tips, so this is great for me!  I can not create on my own – but I can follow a pattern – sorta!

The pattern is made for a 34” square folding card table, but don’t fret, there is a section on sewing playhouses for larger sized tables, building PVC frames and using different types of fabric.

The pattern includes outlines so you can trace and cut every detail shown in the pictures above, including:

    • Flowers and window box
  • Windows
  • Door windows
  • Light
  • Flower pot and flowers and watering can
  • Address numbers
  • Kitties, Puppies, Owls, Birds & Birdhouse
  • Fruit tree, basket and fence
  • Grass and bushes and flowers
  • Apples, oranges, lemons and pears for the tree
  • Mail for the mailbox
  • Scalloped roof border
  • Felt toys to stick on the playhouse

The owner even leaves her email in the pattern book and invites you to email her any questions you have while making your playhouse! Perfect for ME!

Non-crafty?
You can purchase pre-made felt playhouses with tons of super cute themes at Imaginative Play Toys etsy shop.  Prices start at $90 for the Basic Bungalow playhouse with just windows, a door, and a mailbox.  My favorite is the 48″ tall Princess playhouse.  *Mention Cuckoo for Coupon Deals for free shipping.*

Frugal/Crafty?
You can buy the pattern at Imaginative Play Toys etsy shop for $20.  Of course I found out how much it would cost you to make one, I’m a coupon gal after all.  I looked up prices for the amount of felt, Heat N Bond, and velcro you would need to make the playhouse, and my lowest price was $37.19, not counting curtain fabric for windows. I couldn’t find any great sales; these prices are from Fabric.com.   That would make your final cost $57.19 for everything in the pictures above including the pattern eBook.

Imaginative Play Toys sell a Pattern and Pre-cut Fabric kit for $50. I think its a pretty good deal, but keep in mind all the extra decorations on the outside you would still have to buy and cut yourself from the pattern kit.

I am currently making one of these – follow my site as I post updates on my journey!

Giveaway:  Free Felt Playhouse Pattern 48 page eBook with all the cutouts and details to make a felt playhouse.

HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN:

  • Hop on over to Imaginative Play Toys etsy shop and come back and leave a comment with which playhouse you like the best!
  • Get Up To 7 Extra Entries – select the yes or no options under the “Submit Comment” button, then submit ONE comment.  Selections will be saved to your comment and verified.
Please enter your email address in the required e-mail field only.  Do not type it in your comment box because spambots will see it and spam you.  Your email address will be saved to your comment in our database so you can be instantly notified if you are selected as the winner.

Update: Giveaway is over, random.org picked Moe as the winner (details here)

I LOVE comfortable, couture, & modest swimwear. Hapari is another swimwear company I think you can all get ready to love too:

Hapari tankinis can be worn:

  • criss- crossed
  • tied as a halter
  • tied straight back

Great way to switch it up and not get a huge tan line!   Their tankini tops are also super long, so you don’t have to worry about pulling at them all the time. Let me repeat that, no more pulling at your top every time a wave hits you!

I’ve said before how much I love companies that know how to make something not only flattering but comfortable. Hapari also rocks some hot:

  • plus size suits
  • men’s suits
  • children’s suits

I have some very exciting news for you all:

Giveaway: The awesome crew at Hapari has decided to giveaway a $85 credit to Hapari.com to one Cuckoo for Coupon Deals reader!

Here’s how to enter to win:

  1. Hop over to Hapari.com. Leave a comment letting us know which suit you would get with your Gift Certificate.
  2. Get Up To 6 Extra Entries – select the yes or no options under the “Submit Comment” button, then submit ONE comment with which shirt you like.  Selections will be saved to your comment.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Freschetta. All opinions are 100% mine.

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended, view winners here.

I normally post giveaways on Wednesdays and end them the following Tuesday, but Freschetta Pizza contacted me about doing a giveaway and sent me 5 coupons for any size/variety of pizzas.  Since the coupons expire May 31st, I want to hurry and do the giveaway because it can take a week for mail to get to some parts of the country from me here in Utah.

Boring info, what’s important is I am doing a “quicky” giveaway – only 24 hours to enter!

Monday night for Family Home Evening I don’t feel like cooking, so we usually get Domino’s Pizza. This week we substituted and tried out one of the new Freschetta FlatBread pizza varieties:

  • Zesty Italian
  • Roasted Garlic & Spinach
  • Pepperoni
  • 5-Cheese

First off, let me say I normally don’t eat frozen pizza.  It is an extreme back up plan.  I just don’t like how the center always seems doughy.  I think that is why I choose their FlatBread Pizza, Zesty Italian to try out; less crust=no soggy middle.

Great choice! We cooked it right on the rack to get it nice and crispy, and the middle cooked! We were also impressed by the quality of the toppings, most important to me was that their pizza are made with all-natural cheeses, flash frozen vegetables and quality premium meats.   I’m a cheese freak.  I love some good cheese!

These free coupons can be used on any Freschetta pizza, but I would try the flatbread out!  Freschetta also let me know about a new $1/1 any Freschetta pizza printable.

Giveaway: 4 winners will get a coupon for free Freschetta pizzas – any size, any flavor.  And you know me, I like to throw in extra coupons for the winners!

HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN:

  1. “Like” Freschetta Pizza and Cuckoo for Coupon Deals on Facebook, then just leave a comment stating that you did both (use the same name that you use on Facebook for verification purposes).
  2. Get Up To 6 Extra Entries – select the yes or no options under the “Submit Comment” button, then submit ONE comment.  Selections will be saved to your comment!  If you tweet about the giveaway, make sure to use the hash tag: #Freschetta
Please enter your email address in the required e-mail field only.  Do not type it in your comment box because spambots will see it and spam you.  Your email address will be saved to your comment in our database so you can be instantly notified if you are selected as the winner.
Entry is open to US residents. Ends 10:00pm MST on Tuesday, May 11th. Winner will be chosen using a third party site, random.org, contacted by email, and have 48 hours to respond or an alternate will be chosen.
