Another FREE trial site

Another site I forgot to mention is Smiley360.  I just signed up for a Redbox rental campaign.  They will send me a code so I can try a free rental of a movie or video game!

Smart phone!

I figured out how to post to the blog from my smart phone, so now you all will be informed immediately of fabulous deals I might find when I'm out and about.

BzzAgent--- Free Truly Awesome Homestyle Cookies!!!

I have been chosen to try and Bzz about Kroger's Truly Awesome Homestyle Cookies.  They sound delicious.  Usually I make cookies from scratch, but hey, who's got the time for that?  If you had signed up for BzzAgent, you might be enjoying free cookies, too!


Another great site that I recommend for free trials is Vocalpoint.  You perform "Trys and Tells".  They send you a product to try out and then you get to tell how much you liked or disliked it.  There are no wrong answers and you won't be penalized for bad reviews!

Day after Halloween!!!

The day after Halloween is a great day to hit the stores.  Spirit Halloween will have everything 50% off!  Now is the time to buy one of those creepy talking zombie babies you were looking at.  Or, get a few costumes for next year or.....heck, anytime during the year is a great time to dress up as a naughty cop/fairy/witch.

Even better......TARGET!!!!!  All sorts of costumes and decorations and all the other crap your kids were begging you to buy for them because they neeeeeeed it.  All, 50% off!  But, wait!  It gets even better!  ANYTHING with a Halloween motif will be 50% off!  Bounty paper towels, 50% off!

Couponistas in our area

You may have noticed lately that everywhere you look there are tons of couponistas toting their envelopes, boxes or binders full of coupons, searching out deals at local stores. 
For people just starting out, couponing can be confusing!  Just watching "Extreme Couponing" isn't enough.  Luckily, we have a few fabulous couponing experts in our area.  These websites offer sales and coupon info specific to the Puget Sound area.
Queen Bee Coupons ------ Check this site often to see if she's offering a class in your area!  I highly recommend it for any new couponista
Thrifty Northwest Mom
Frugal Living NW

BzzAgent is a fabulous site for folks like us that love free stuff.  Your opinion matters.  Companies want to know what you think of their new products.  They also know that word of mouth referrals (Bzz's) are very powerful. contracts with these companies to send full size product samples for you to try and several smaller size samples and high value coupons for you to give to friends when you Bzz about the product.  The more you Bzz, the higher you get in the Honeycomb!  The higher you are in the Honeycomb, the more trials you'll get.
We have had the opportunity to Bzz about Black Box Wine, Fekkai hair products, Burt's Bees products and Tonka Tricksters!!!  That's just in the last 3 months!

I have finally decided to start a blog about my obsession with couponing.  Hopefully, with the help of my best friend, Layla, we can make this halfway interesting.
