SwagBucks Has Coupons to Print

Did you know SwagBucks has coupons you can print. They are connected with Coupons.com but when you print them from SB, you can get 10 points for each coupon you redeem at the store! Great deal, especially if you use Coupons.com like I do for most of your coupons!
If you are not signed up with SwagBucks, I highly recommend it! I have redeemed many rewards through them-PayPal money, lots of Amazon.com gift cards, etc... Last year, by using Swags, I was able to get quite a few things for Christmas with my points, turned into rewards :) You can sign up on your own, or, if you would like, you can sign up as one of my referrals, and I will get points when you get points (the payback would be greatly appreciated ;). It's easy to earn, all you do is use them for your websearches. If you get on their FB page, you can learn about other ways to earn points. And, now, as I mentioned above, you can earn points with your printable coupons!
Happy Swagging ;)

Febreze Printable Coupons

Some great printables from Febreze, including a $5 off coupon for Febreze Luminary Starter Kit! My oldest dd loves candles. She just lets them sit in her room without burning them and they make a great scent. This would be neat for her because she can have it turned on and have the 'feel' of a candle without any real flame :) Go here to print off yours!

Pumpkin Pie Squares

We love these and if you have a big group to feed for the Holidays or a pot luck you are attending, these are terrific! They go far!

Pumpkin Pie Squares


1/2 cup butter or margerine, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

Cream butter/margerine with sugar until creamy. Add in flour (you may find it does not all incorporate). Then, fold in oats (same with oats-it may not all work itself in-that is ok). Then, put this mixture into a 9x13 pan (I like to use glass because then I can just keep the squares in there for easy trasport/fridge storage). Using hands, pat the mixture out as evenly as you can. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 15 mins or until set. Basically, until set means make sure you are not seeing much butter in your crust just sitting there. I don't let it get very brown if that helps you more :)


This is your basic pumpkin pie filling-so if you have a favorite, use it here. If not, here is what I have used for years (probably from a can of Libby's Pumpkin :) You can easily use skim evaporated milk to help lower the calories

2 eggs

3/4 cup white sugar

1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin

1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

*on spices, I use 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice in place of individual spices above*

Beat eggs and sugar. Add in pumpkin and evaporated milk. Then add salt and spices and mix until you can see spices are blended evenly into mixture. Use a spoon or rubber spatula to help it along. Pour over baked crust (the crust does not have to cooled first-it can be warm from the oven). Bake at 350 until pie filling is set. I usually turn the oven down to about 300 after about 20 mins. but that is with my oven. I remember doing this often with pumpkin pies too. With these squares, I find it helps to not overbake the crust. Let cool before cutting into squares.

Food Pyramid on 101st & Memorial-Good Turkey Prices!

Reasor's Totinos Pizza Deal

I really did not see too much on sale at Reasor's this week. But, I did see a good deal for Totino's pizza. There is an in ad coupon for $5 off 10 Totino's pizzas. I checked the price yesterday when I popped into Reasor's for something. They are $1.43 a piece. Buy 10, that is $14.30. Minus the $5 in ad coupon makes them $9.30 for all ten-that is 93 cents a piece. If you can access these coupons at Share & Save, you can save even more!

Going Black Friday Shopping? Stop by Kum N Go

Kum N Go will have coffee for 25 cents that morning :) Coffee to help keep you going for all those sales!

Thanksgiving Thankful Tree

Every Thanksgiving, we make a Thankful Tree. I have seen other trees where you stick a stem into something and then hang the leaves off it, and I like that idea. But, my kids really enjoy the one we originally started with. It is very easy to make and because we make it so big, it can handle tons of Fall colored leaves :)

I will post pictures later. I had every intention of making this yesterday, but we had an impromptu visit to a new video store in our area and I got side-tracked :)

First, decide where you want your tree-on a door, on a big window, a wall in your house, etc...and decide how big you want your tree to be. You can either use paper bags or large sheets of brown paper (I just happen to have some from some things I ordered online) and cut out your tree shape. You might have to use a few paper bags if your tree is going to be big. Tape this to your designated tree area.

Then, if you are very artistic, or cretive, cut out leaf shapes. Or, you can take a small walk and find some to trace onto nice Fall-colored pieces of construction paper, then cut out. Or, you can print off some leaf shapes, and if you want the Fall colors, trace them onto construction paper. Card stock would work as well, and hold up nicely year from year, but we just go the frugal route here. And, yet another idea for leaves, let your kids trave their hands-almost like those hand turkeys we made as kids :) They can actually sort of look like a maple leaf and you have all these different shapes and sizes of leaves-as well as the memory if you keep your leaves of what your child's hand looked like that year and what cute things they were thankful for!

Here are a few sites with leaf patterns;

Free Fall Leaf Pages These are large leaves. If you made a really large tree, these would come in handy

Maple, Oak and Variety Leaf Patterns

Family Fun-Turkey and Leaf Patterns You could use the turkey-maybe make one for each member of the family and put them at the base of the tree

Be sure whatever way you decide to go with the leaves to have a good stash of them on hand. Let your child, or whoever, write their thankful item on one side and their name and date on the other. Use tape to hang the leaves on the tree, under the tree, or even in such a way that makes it look like it just fell off the tree and is gently floating down to the ground :) This is rally meant to be a project that lasts all month long.

If you are hesitant about using lots of tape or hanging things on walls/windows, you can also turn this idea into a Thankful Wreath. You can use an actual wreath (foam, pine, etc...) and attach your leaves whichever way works best (pins, raffia, glue, etc...) or you can let your child make a wreath shape by cutting out the center of a paper plate. Glue or staple the leaves as the child makes them onto the paper plate. Hang it for all to see.

You can let family/friends add leaves too. It's just a fun project that is meant to instill thoughts of what we are thankful for this time of year.
