Absent from the Blogosphere.

I just wanted to let all my wonderful readers know that I will be absent from the blogosphere this weekend. I will be back to my regular posting on Monday.

I wish you all a very wonderful weekend. Be sure to catch a parade or two this weekend. Most places are having their St. Pat's Day parades around town.

If you haven't accepted the MISSION yet for this week, be sure to check it out and do it. You have until Sunday at midnight.

Freepeats Lifetime Membership Giveaway!

If you are anything like me, your favorite word is FREE. Freepeats is a way for you to be able to share baby, kid & maternity items that you no longer have use for. Why keep all that stuff laying around and why not help out another mom. We all know how expensive it is to have a child and then as they get older it sure doesn't get any cheaper.

Think of it this way. You need a new diaper bag because yours got left on the train (I've seen this happen!). You get on Freepeats and check the posted offers for a new diaper bag. You find one and saved $30+! So, wouldn't it make you feel great to know that you could save another mommy money like that with what you post?! What you aren't using could be a HUGE money saver for someone else!

What can be posted on Freepeats? Pretty much everything gently used pertaining to baby, kid or maternity. If you wouldn't give it to your best friend or relative, then don't post it! Here are some examples: bouncers, swings, cribs, formula, clothing, event tickets, diapers, strollers, high chairs, baby gyms, books, toys, etc. What is not accepted? Known recalled items, carseats and crib matresses can not be posted.

For those of you who live in Madison, WI or Knoxville, TN, you are eligible for FREE membership from now through March 15th. How can you find out if there is a Freepeats organization in your area? Click here and scout out the list of 47 currently running groups.

What is the cost of Freepeats? Well, it costs $4.95 for a membership. Once you are a member, everything else is FREE! Anything you post is FREE to others and vice versa. For the month of March, Freepeats is offering reimbursement of your membership fees if you post 2 or more items on the "Offers Board". What a great organization, FREE, FREE, FREE! I love it!

Tips For Beginners - Abbreviations

For those of you who are starting out with couponing or following couponing blogs, you may have hard times with abbreviations. One of my readers asked that I post a special post all about their meanings. Hopefully this will be helpful to a lot of you.
  • WG = Walgreens
  • WC = Walgreens Coupons
  • ESC = Easy Saver Coupons from the savings booklets at Walgreens that you can pick up at the front door. These booklets change monthly.
  • ESR = Easy Saver Rebates which are also found in the savings booklet at Walgreens.

  • RR = Register Rewards that print from the catalinas at the register. They are basically in store credit.
  • Tearoffs = These are coupons that you can get off tearpads in the stores. They are offered on various items from time to time. (NOTE: Whenever I see them, I grab 4 coupons even if I don't need those items. You never know when there may be a great deal that comes along!)
  • Blinkies = These are the mechanical coupon machines that you see from time to time in the stores. You grab a coupon and another gets ready to come out. (NOTE: I always grab these also!)
  • Coloring/Activity Booklet = Walgreens has these in their kids coloring isle. It has jungle animals on the front and 1 sheet of small coupons on the inside when you open the front cover. See example in my post here, scroll down to picture 4. These come out yearly.

  • ECB = Extra Care Bucks which are like register rewards that print out at the register. They are basically in store credit.

  • TS = Trial size.
  • B1G1 = Buy one get one.

  • P&G = Proctor & Gamble coupon circular that comes out 2 times per month in the Sunday paper.
  • P = Parade Magazine that comes out in the Sunday paper. This has coupons on occasion so it is always good to check it before throwing it out.
  • MIR = Mail In Rebates that you purchase the item and fill out a form and mail in to the companies for reimbursement. I always try to use a coupon when purchasing these items so that I get my stamp paid for. :)
  • ct = count or number of items in the package.
  • Sz = Size.
  • B$G$RR = This means that you spend so much and you get so much in register rewards. For instance, B$25G$10RR means that you have to spend $25 worth and you will get a $10 register reward at the register.
  • Mailer = These are coupons that are sent directly from the manufacturer either in booklet or seperate form.
  • OOP = Out of Pocket.
  • J&J = Johnson & Johnson products.
  • $/# = This is a coupon value of so much money off if you buy so many. For instance, $1/3 means you will save $1 when you purchase 3 of the product.
  • Printable Coupons = coupons that you can print at home. Some have a limit of how many times you can print them (usually 2 per computer) others do not (usually PDF format which means they can be saved to your computer and printed over and over).

I think I covered them all. Check back here periodically. I will add new ones here when I think of them. I will include a link to this post on my left side bar. If there are any that I missed, please comment here and I will add them to the list.

Mission Possible Mondays!

Welcome to Mission Possible Mondays from a Mom on a Mission since 2008!

I thought it would be fun to host a new Mission every Monday for myself and others that may be willing to participate. It will be a lot of fun to see what new things we can set out to do!

HERE IS YOUR MISSION, SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT:

Do something unexpected for your spouse this week.

WHEN, WHERE, WHY:

Whenever it will surprise him/her, wherever the opportunity arises because they deserve it!

REPORT A MISSION COMPLETE:

Whenever you complete your mission (3/9/09-3/15/09)

  1. Grab my Mission Possible Mondays button from the left side bar.

  2. Post about the Mission and how you completed it.
  3. Come back here and enter your post URL into the Mister Linky below. (If you don't have a blog, please leave a comment here with how you completed the Mission!)

Next Monday, I will report on how I completed the Mission and will then post a new one.

Do you have a Mission idea? Email me and yours may be featured!
