Oh dear...

Yipes. July 17th was the last time I posted eh? 

I know, I know...I've been MIA.

I don't have an excuse other than I got busy and the longer I stayed away, the more I enjoyed it. Unplugged time is so important and feels incredible!

The good news (for me, because I'm not sure how this will be beneficial to you) is that my garden has loved all of the added attention. My green beans, which I planted every few weeks are coming in nicely and I will begin canning them soon. I have cherry tomatoes coming out of my ears, and 20 zucchini laying around my kitchen that need to be made into bread and other yummy goodies.

The site is still up and running for coupon printing and other helpful resources; I just won't be posting regularly for the moment!

Say Goodbye to Coffee Shop Mochas and Hello to More Cash in Your Pocket!


This post was inspired by the sale happening at Fred Meyer this week. (See the end of the post for details) This is how I make a stock up sale last to get more bang for my buck!

I'm a coffee drinker. Typically I just enjoy a regular cup o' joe but I treat myself to a mocha here and there. Those "here and there" mochas really begin to add up at $4 a pop though. To solve this problem I've recently started buying these half gallon cartons of the mocha flavor (they have other flavors) and they're pretty tasty! Even if I pay full price for it, which is around $3.99, I'm still saving money.


Each half gallon carton holds enough for eight iced mochas. I don't drink only eight ounces though. I usually go for the sixteen ouncer so I'll be calculating for the sixteen ounce size. That means that I'll get four mochas out of a carton. Four mochas from the local coffee shop would be $16. Would you rather pay $4 one time for one drink or $4 for a carton containing four drinks? Exactly.


Now for another tip. When I pour my mochas I do 1/2 iced coffee and 1/2 1% milk. I started this because it's too thick. (Only my opinion) But the bonus to mixing it half and half like that is that it lasts twice as long!

I pour as needed but you could pre-mix it to save yourself time in the morning. You know, if you're a "need coffee stat" kind of person.

I can easily use up a carton before its expiration date but in the case of a stock up scenario where I have a few at a time, I freeze them! If freezing, just make sure you use a little first so that it creates room for expansion.

Other ideas:

-Freeze some as ice cubes to add to your iced coffee.
-Blend in a blender to create your own mocha frappuccino! Just add whip cream and drizzle some chocolate sauce on the top! Yum.

As I mentioned above....

This week at Fred Meyer, International Delight Iced Coffee is $2 with their in ad coupon. We also have a manufacturer's coupon for $1/1. By stacking both of these coupons we can get the half gallons of iced coffee for $1! That means that with this sale at Fred Meyer, we'll be paying $.25 for each sixteen ounce mocha. Awesome!! This deal is also highlighted in this week's Fred Meyer match ups.
