Free Food at PF Chang's

Score!  I didn't even know that PF Chang's had a Happy Hour & now, here I sit with a coupon for free food during their Triple Happiness Happy Hour. 

Common Sense With Money, sent me a link to a coupon for free dim sum or street fare with any food purchase. 

Follow this link to like them on Facebook & print your coupon.  Look for Happy Hour on the left side of the page after you like them. I right-clicked the picture & it printed perfectly. 

Dim sum...yum yum!

"It Pays To Eat Pasta" Giveaway

Hey, guys.  One of my favorite pasta companies is having a contest where they're giving away free groceries for a year!  It's actually in the form of a check, but I'd rather buy my own groceries anyway.  :)
The grand prize is $5,200 (so, $100/week for a year's worth of shopping).  They're also giving away 450 more checks for $100 each...I think I could stretch that to cover 2 grocery trips on a good coupon week.

They sent me this link to the contest entry form.  I just registered & hope you do, too.

Good luck!  I hope we all win one of the $100 prizes!

Our 1st Contest!

OK, everyone...thinking caps on!  This is a photo of a recent shopping trip to Albertsons.  (Mmmm...feta cheese.)

Whoever guesses how much I spent, or gets the closest without going under, (ooh, tricky!) wins a prize!  Hint:  No, the trip was not free.  :(

The prize is a CD called Conquering The Financial Kingdom & I keep it in my car at all times.  I'll pop it in every few weeks for some sound financial counsel.  (Yeah, it might not be a glamorous prize, but I like it!  And you don't get the scratched copy from my car, you get a brand-new one of your very own!)  It's just good ol' fashioned wisdom & it's been very helpful to my hubby & me as we've been on our journey of Stretching Our Savings & treating our money much differently than ever before.

Plus, you get the bragging rights that come with being the winner of our very first contest! :)

I will announce the winner & contact them privately to get shipping information.  The first person to guess correctly wins OR the closest guess without going UNDER. Ready, set, GO!
Details: 4 boxes of Act II microwave popcorn, 1- 3.5 oz package of Reduced Fat Athenos feta cheese, 2- 24 oz bottles of Hunt's ketchup and 4 Snack Packs (4 in each) of pudding.  Have fun!  :)

Coffee Coupons

Coffee prices are through the roof right now.  I thought things were bad when I wrote my coffee post, but they've kept climbing ever since!

I found 2 pretty good coupons that might help ease the pain.

$1/1 12oz. bag of Seattle's Best
$2/2 bags of 8 O'Clock

If the Eight O'Clock coupons have been printed too many times, try this link. You'll need to enter your email address, so use your junk/coupon address.
