Babies...coming to theatres Mothers Day weekend!

I am a member of and recently they contacted me about a new movie coming out in theatres called Babies. I was given exclusive access to content from the movie, and I am now able to share more about this movie with you. No, it is not a deal, just a cute upcoming film you might be interested in seeing.

According to BzzAgents, "This new film is a visually stunning and joyful new film that simultaneously chronicles the lives of four of the world’s newest human inhabitants - in Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco, and Tokyo, respectively -- from first breath to first steps. Plus, in the end these babies are CUTE!" I have watched some of the previews and I cannot help but agree that is looks CUTE!

Check out the trailer here:

And while I have you attention, let me introduce you to one of the Babies, Ponijao from Namibia.

Ponijao lives in Namibia with her family, including her parents and eight older brothers and sisters. Ponijao’s family is part of the Himba tribe, and lives in a small village with other families, following traditions including speaking their own (Himba) language. The men in the Himba tribe are generally off looking after the cattle and searching for grass, so Ponijao is most often with her mother and other female relatives; she plays, eats, and is bathed through the traditional method of mixing concrete red ochre with oil. Ponijao’s favorite things to do are dance and play with other children in the tribe.

I am so excited to see this movie! It really just looks too cute!

You can also check them out online (but then you miss the awesome coupons-there are 2 FREE coupons in this month's=one for make-up and one for Banquet frozen family meals! The magazine pays for itself). I am writing about it today though to tell you that they had an article about free stuff on the internet that is pretty good to read. That article is available online here. Just thought you might be interested in reading that!

FREE activities this weekend-most Saturday (tomorrow)

I have posted about a few of these, but Couponing to Disney just posted all these on one post and I realized how much more convenient it was for me to see it all in one place, so I am doing the same thing. Here are some fun free activities going on this weekend:
  • Lowes - 10 am Build a Kaleidoscope at their Build and Grow Clinic.
  • Michaels – 10 am – 1 pm. Create spring projects with New Crayola Model Magic Presto Dots.
  • Bass Pro Shop – Free picture with the Easter bunny from 11 am to 3 pm. Make a sun catcher start at Noon. Go on an Easter Egg hunt from 2 – 3 pm. More details here.
  • The Disney Store – 11 am – 3 pm. Easter activities and prizes for the whole family!
  • Toys R Us – 12 pm – 2 pm. Easter Hunt from 12 to 2pm. Get a free gift bag, activity book and more!
  • Hy-Vee- Most stores are having Easter egg hunts on Saturday. Times vary by store though so contact your local store for details!
You can click on the store names above to get to their websites to find locations near you. I would call your local store and make sure they are participating before I head down-and verify the time because I find that ometimes the store has a different time for the activity than what is listed online.

Thanks Couponing to Disney.


**WOW-I am starting to feel like one of the super couponers...(Also, my husband is amazing)

Yesterday I told you about my exciting Hy-Vee trip here. Well, I also told my husband about it, and he thought I was crazy to have only bought 14 soups and 2 cereals (I thought I was nuts too). So, he stopped on the way home from work last night and came home with the following things:

Everything in this picture cost a total of (gasp) $10.52 and he got a catalina for a free gallon of milk (up to $4.19 value-any brand, any flavor)! Here a run down of what is there and what it cost:

50 cans of Campbells chunky soup $.14 each= $7
4 boxes of Frosted Flakes $.88 each= $3.52

Making the grand total of $10.52 and the Catalina!!

It was funny though because the receipts was taller than our kids!
When Wes got home and I saw all he got and he showed me the catalina, I was amazed! Even more amazed when I read the catalina. Apparently right now and until April 10 at Hy-Vee when you buy 3 or more Kellogg's cereals (12 oz+) any flavor, you get catalinas for free milk. When you buy 3-4 boxes, you get 1 free milk, when you get 5-6 boxes, you get 2 free milks, and when you buy 7 or more boxes, you get 3 free milks.

Well the milk really is about $4 each so I figured out that if we could get 7 boxes of the Frosted Flakes (which we will eat and should stock up on at that price) for only $.88 each, that would only cost $6.16, and we would get catalinas for 3 more products that we use anyway with a value of up to $12.57. That is basically a moneymaker! So, we packed up all the kids and since it was great weather, we walked back to Hy-Vee for a 3rd stop and came away with this stuff:

I bought those in 2 transactions (because with catalinas, you generally will not get new catalinas for the same item if you are using the same kind of caalina. So, I was using the catalina for free milk, and trying to buy the cereal and gt more catlinas for free milk. So I had to put the free milk and the cereals in 2 seperate transactions.) The first transactins cost $8.15 and I got back 3 free milk catalinas, and the second transaction cost $2.95 for a grand total of $11.01 + 3 catalina totaling a value of $12.57. Again-basically a moneymaker and we got all this:

Here is the rundown of what is there and what it cost:

Transaction 1:

1 bag Hy-Vee potato chips $.99
7 Kellogg's Frosted Flakes $.88 each = $6.16
1 Yoplait Yo-Plus 4-pack FREE (after coupon I requested and got in mail yestrday)
10 Top Ramen 10/$1=$1 total

And my total was actually $8.15

Transaction 2:

1 gallon chocolate milk: $4.18 but FREE after catalina
4 paper towels rolls $.69 each

Total: $2.95

And look, the free milks print as 3 seperate catalinas so you do not have to buy them all the same trip if you do not want to! But make sure you always check expiration dates on any catalinas you have! :)

BTW-we did not buy out all the deals-when we left the store last night there was still a TON of soup and cereal left with the peelie coupons for you guys to get! Looks like we are building up a pretty good food storage now though! Sorry the pics are blurry-they were from my cell phone camera...


Online Coupon Database...check it out!

I really want to tell you guys about an awesome site that I recently found! It is a coupon database where you can type in the name of a product you are looking for and it tells you whetehr there is a coupon out there for it. It also tells you the source of the coupon and often they are printable, so you can just print out a coupon for whatever you need to buy. I do know that there have been a couple times when I knew about a coupon that I did not find on their database, but most of the time I find great coupons hat I need! The site is at Hot Coupon World and you can find it here.

Go check it out-it is pretty awesome!
