UPDATE: There’s also a hot $2/1 coupon that came in today’s RP – you’ll get is Sunday if you get them in the paper instead of the mail. Thanks to my co-blogger buddy Audrey for letting me know!

I’m always hesitant to post about catalinas because people get so mad at me if they go to do them and they don’t work.  I try to verify them before I post. This one has been reported widely as working, and at multiple grocery stores so here goes:

Buy one Smart Balance Milk and a catalina for a FREE Smart Balance Milk comes out! This is rolling, so you can reportedly use the catalina to buy another milk free, then get another catalina to print!

It Gets Better: Make sure to use the$1.50/1 Smart Balance Milks, exp. 7-7-10 (RP 05/23/10) when you buy your first milk!

Even better, this is being reported at at least these stores, possibly more (some people are saying if your store carries catalinas and Smart Balance milk, this deal is working everywhere.  That seems cuckoo to me!)

  • Bi-low
  • Harris Teeter
  • Kroger
  • Meijer
  • Lowes Foods

It is officially NOT at : Martins, Food Lion

Drop off your extra milk at food pantries!  Let me know if this works for you and where at!

Thanks,  WeUseCoupons

I got the Stewart Fashion Silk Tie shown above to review from ABC Neckties; I didn’t tell my husband about the review so I could give it to him for Father’s Day.    I always get the mail since it comes when he is at work so I was going to get the tie and stash it from him.  Of course the tie came a few days before I expected.  I was spending the entire Memorial week at my parents house and thought the tie would come after the holidays.  It came while I was gone and my husband called me to say we randomly got a tie in the mail.

I said “Hide that tie.  I can still surprise you with it on Father’s Day” and he laughed. He wore it to church this week.   I’m still counting it as his Father’s Day present though!

My husband says it is great quality tie.   My husband served a mission and wore ties everyday for two years, and so he knows his ties.   He’s got dozens.  This is one of his new favorites.

ABC Neckties has every type of tie you can think of and you can search by color,style, or browse novelty ties.

I am hoping that we can get the winner of the giveaway their tie before Father’s Day because I think it’d be  a great gift.

Giveaway: 1 Winner Will Get any Tie of their Choice from ABC Neckties!  ABC Neckties will send you your tie, but I’ll do my best to get it to you by Father’s Day.  Giveaway is a short 24 hour entry time so that we can select a winner and get their tie to them in time!

HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN:

  • MANDATORY: Leave a comment letting us know what you’re giving dad/hubby this Father’s Day.
  • OPTIONAL EXTRA ENTRY: follow @ABCNeckties (Twitter) and leave a comment saying that you did
  • OPTIONAL EXTRA ENTRY: “like” ABC Neckties Facebook page
  • OPTIONAL EXTRA ENTRY: “like” Cuckoo for Coupon Deals on Facebook

4 entries max – remember to leave a new comment for each entry (this is slightly different then our other system of entries where you only have to leave one comment and you select the drop-down lists; I’m trying to decide which way people like best- let me know).

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 10:00AM MST on Thursday, June 10th. Winner will be chosen using a third party site, random.org, announced on this site, and have 24 hours to respond or an alternate will be chosen.  Disclosure: I was in no way paid for this review and this is my honest opinion.

After over a year of potty training, I have decided to throw out the books. Everything people told me to do simply didn’t work.

  1. Pull-ups didn’t work.
  2. “Potty treats” didn’t work.
  3. Time-out if she had an accident didn’t work.
  4. Giving her months at a time where we didn’t do anything, waiting for her to say she was ready to potty train didn’t work.
  5. Letting her pick out her own “special big girl underwear” didn’t work.
  6. Letting her pick out her own training potty didn’t work.
  7. Sitting her on the potty every 30 minutes didn’t work.

Four days ago I finally started something that did work.  We put her in the underwear.   If she wet it, we didn’t let her have a drink until next time she used the potty.  She loves juice and wants drinks all the time.  She was so upset not to have her drinks.  She threw tantrums, but I held firm.

Two days ago she started running to the potty when she had to go.  If she even tried to go, we’d give her a drink of juice.  If she went in the potty, we gave her a whole Capri Sun.

Yesterday she started making it to the potty, sometimes.  Every time we gave her juice.

Today she’s doing even better.   I think she’s only going because she wants juice, but it is better then not going at all.

I’ve know everyone says to let them do it on their own time. But when all the kids her age were potty trained over a year ago, I just started getting desperate.

Am I too harsh, taking away her favorite thing if she doesn’t use the potty? Maybe. But has anyone else had success with pull-ups?

Carrie just emailed me wonder why I didn’t post about this – I take the weekends off (or post quite lightly) to spend time with my husband.  Then it’s back to ‘work’ on Monday.  I love posting deals for you all so much, I laugh when I call it ‘work’!
