Couponing for the Rest of Us – Only $0.99 on Kindle

coupoping for the rest of us

I just wanted to give you a heads up that my book, Couponing for the Rest of Us: The Not-So-Extreme Guide to Saving More, is on only $0.99 on Kindle through January 5, 2015. If you’d like to save more money in the new year, my book will help you tremendously!

Not everyone is an extreme couponer. Most of us just want to save some money–not let clipping coupons and scouring the internet for deals take over our lives. For all the savvy shoppers out there, Kasey Knight Trenum has written Couponing for the Rest of Us.

She knows that money is tight, food prices are going up, gas prices are closing in on unbearable, and people have better things to do than spend every spare minute (if they have any) obsessing over costs and coupons. She also knows coupons just happen to be a tool that can save a family hundreds of dollars every month and ultimately improve a family’s finances and its future.

Couponing for the Rest of Us shows readers

•where to find coupons for what your family eats
•how to make the internet do the work for you
•how to find sale cycles and store match-ups (and what those terms mean!)
•how to reinvent your shopping strategy and toss your lists
•how to make grocery shopping less stressful–even fun!
•how to turn money saved into money shared
•and much more

Low Carb Chicken Recipes: Baked Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Fajitas

Recently, I’ve seen all kinds of yummy looking recipes all over facebook.  Since many are shared, and not linked to the original source I am a little leary of trying the recipe.  Anyone can type up a recipe, and find an image that appears to go with it.  So, when a recipe gets my attention I prefer to test it out in my kitchen.  Of course I am not a great recipe follower, so I tend to change up the ingredients a bit to suit my family’s taste.  We loved this recipe,  although it was a little spicy.  I  made homemade Mexican Brown rice to serve with the Baked Chicken Fajitas to complete the meal.  If you are looking for low carb chicken recipes,  I would suggest serving the chicken fajitas in lettuce wraps or whole grain tortillas.  Since we  completed our AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge, we are still following the principles of the eating plan so this recipe worked perfectly.  My husband and I both feel so much better and he has lost 43lbs (see our story here).

Emailed giftcards are cute too – you can choose the design and what it will say.  I especially think my husband might be better off just getting me a giftcard like the one that admits I’m a better shopper and I should probably just go buy myself a gift ;)  That man has a knack for buying everything at full price…

However you do it – at least you know it’s something they won’t have to take back.  There’s something on Amazon for EVERYONE.

25 Days of Christmas Fun: Reindeer Food

reindeerfood

Just a reminder that if you’re looking to add a little more *magic* to your Christmas traditions – don’t forget to toss some Reindeer Food out on the front lawn tonight!

 

I love Christmas traditions, especially those full of Christmas wonder and magic.  My kids still believe in Santa, and all things related that are holly and jolly including the importance of feeding Santa’s rambunctious elves.  The past couple of years, we’ve made reindeer food that we sprinkle in the front yard on Christmas Eve before they head to bed.  I’ve included the recipe below in case you’d like to try it!

Ingredients:

  • Raw Oatmeal (Cause reindeer LOOOVE them some oats….)
  • Glitter or sprinkles (To sparkle in the moonlight and guide them to your home)

Toss some out on the lawn on Christmas Eve, to give those poor over-worked reindeer something to munch on while Santa’s doing his chimney business.  You can also leave out baby carrots for the reindeer instead, if you don’t have any oatmeal or glitter on hand ;)
