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.

This Giveaway has ended: Winner was Entry #23, Ashley.

I received a copy of Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey.  Other then the free copy of the book for me to review and the free copy they gave me to give away to one of my readers, I was in no other way paid for this review and this is my honest opinion of the book:

You should read the FREE 26 pages of ABC’s of Couponing eBook!

I wish I would have bought it to give to my sisters-in-law for Christmas instead of giving them the gifts I got them.  I used coupons to score amazing deals on their presents; but those are only going to last so long.  This book would do much more to seriously change their lives.  You see, even though I coupon and have tried to explain to them the dramatic savings I score, there is really so much to couponing you need to be taught it in a class (as I was), watch training videos, or by buying and reading this book.

Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey is loaded with funny comics showing how Krazy coupon shoppers live.  I related to all of them and my husband agreed I could be the lady in the comics. The book starts out explaining the why of couponing.  This is why this would be a great gift for people who are not couponers yet.  There are some people who don’t understand that you can get name-brand cereal for drastically less then generic.   Or they don’t believe it, until the read the in-depth how.

Every trick it took me months to learn the hard-knock way at the checkout lane was laid out in this 250 page book.  I wish I had read it before I started couponing to save me massive amounts of trial-and-error and the many times I had coupons denied or spent more then I was planning.  One example is their list of categories for coupon binder organization.  I had 10 broad category tabs in my coupon binder.  I have skipped out on deals because I couldn’t find a coupon; for example, a coupon for Ranch dressing could have gone in my old system under my canned/boxed foods tab or my produce tab, but it really didn’t fit in either.  I recently bought more tabs and used the categories they suggested.  I no longer have problems finding coupons because they only fit under one category now, and the categories are organized similar to most grocery stores aisles so similar coupons are by each other.  For those of you who don’t know what a category tab is, the entire way to clip, store, and organize coupon binders is also laid out in the book.

Overall, I loved the book and was pleased with all their real-life experiences that I could relate to.  This is the best present you could ever give someone who needs to save big money in their life with money-saving tips on groceries, children’s clothes, and even gifts.  You can buy this book at  Right now it looks like it is about $15 including shipping.  Worth every penny.

I have also just learned that we have decided to give me one more copy of this book to giveaway to my readers!

I love checking my mail and email and getting random free samples or coupons.  Vocalpoint sent me coupons for $3 off Kashi cereal, and full-size Kashi cereal was $3 at Walmart so I got it free.  I am sure glad I didn’t spend my money on that stuff! I couldn’t even pawn it off on my starving college-student brother!  I think we ended up trashing it. Really, it was that bad. Here are two sites I get a lot of freebies from by signing up for their mailing list:

Home Made Simple Home Made Simple: they email and mail you special offers, samples, coupons, and sweepstakes offers from brands like Cascade, Dawn, Febreze, Mr. Clean, and Swiffer.

Vocal PointVocalpoint: Mails coupons and free samples directly to your home.  Has users offer reviews of the products so you know if they are good or not.

Anyone else got free samples of things and decided you were glad you tried it before you bought it?

RiteAid_LOGOI just got sent an email from Rite Aid that said Nov. 26-28th Alkaline Batteries AAA, AA, C, D, and 9-Volt will be $.99.  Well, remember those $2 off printable coupons for Rite Aid batteries I told you about?  Either buy filler items or ask the cashier to bring the price of the coupon down to .99 and then walla, free batteries!

dollar-signWhat are some ways to legitimately make money online?

My requirement is it must not cost you money, not upfront, not monthly, ever.  Coupon Geek has some more to add:

1) You will definitely want to set up a separate email account just for surveys. A lot of the companies off you money for simply reading emails, which can accumulate to 3-6 per day per company. This will also prevent your personal account from becoming bombarded.

2) You won’t “get rich fast” with any of them. They take time to reach the designated payouts that some companies requite. You’ll need to definitely practice a little patience, but it’s worth it when the checks show up!

3) Different companies offer different rewards. Some only payout with gift cards. Others you’ll have to reach a designated threshold before you get your money. Others pay out in freebies. And you might get lucky enough to find some that payout a little of everything!

4) Always make sure a company is “legit”. Ask around or look for those posted as recommendations from bloggers you trust. But always follow the rule of “Use Your Best Judgment” or “If It Sounds To Good To Be True…It Probably Is!” Never, ever pay a fee to join one!

5) You can use a program such as Roboform that will automatically fill in data for you, saving you time. There’s a free version that you can download.

6) It may not seem like your surveys are adding up to much so consider putting them in a separate high-interest account and watch them grow (and earn interest!). Think of it as your vacation/Christmas Fund!

Quality Health: No credit card, nothing to buy, just free samples of products!

My Survey: Earn rewards for taking surveys & influence new products. Entry to win $10,000 just for registering at You get 10 points for joining and up to 1500 points per survey. Points can be converted to cash and they’ll mail you a check in a week.

Inbox Dollars – I primarily use Inbox Dollars for the paid emails. They pay you to click on a button that says “I read this email” on every email they send you. However, this way takes a long time to reach payout. Cash payouts can range from $10 to $250 per survey completed. Every survey is free.

Ipsos– You’ll get 2-5 survey opportunities a week that earn you points. You can turn those in for gift cards to places like Applebees, Chilis, Olive Garden, Amazon and Kohl’s. Every survey you somplete also earns you an entry into a $5,000 drawing.

SwagBucks – Now, for those of you who have been around a little while, you know I love Swagbucks! You earn swagbucks just for doing your normal searches. Every so often, a little box will show up and say you won a swagbuck (and then you do a little dance…lol). You can redeem your swagbucks for gift cards, clothing, music and much more! And Fridays are Mega Swag Bucks days, so today is a great day to sign up because when you search you get way more Swag Bucks today.  Go here to sign up.

Some sites don’t want you to take surveys, but rather complete minimum purchase requirements of their sponsers and then you get  a reward.  Here is an a proven one: Get your FREE $500 Gasoline Gift Card – Participation Required

Those personally I don’t have time for, but if you do then they are a great high value reward program and go for it!

I hope this helps lead you in the right direction. Good luck!

Thank you, Jaycie for your help in compiling this great list!
