Deal Alert: Bargain Movies + Free Breaky

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Just a couple of sweet deals to share today:

First up, M&M movie promotion. On select single packets of M&M’s there’s a “win movie tickets promotion”, after you’ve consumed the goods you’ll find a code inside just enter it HERE to see if you’re a winner. We’ve purchased about six packs, and five of those were winners and awarded a us $3 in movie credit per pack.

Yesterday, we cash our movie cash in and saw a matinee of The Help. It’s a must see and a must read, and we loved it. Of course paying only $2.50 helped our enjoyment!

We’ve found that deal to be great, but if you’re wanting a confirmed deal on your movie ticket it may be best to go with their other promotion; buy 2 packs of M&M’s (larger bags) and Orville Redenbacher popcorn to get Entertainment Cash for free movie tickets or DVD Savings. Go HERE to get your Printable Rebate form and more info.


Our second deal today you may of already heard of , a FREE breakfast entree at Chick fil A. I think you already know this is our favorite fast foodie place, it’s great.

There’s still plenty of reservation spots left so head on over to HERE to claim yours.

Holler Dollar: Geometric Wooden Puzzles

Monday, August 29th, 2011

A couple of days a go I spied these puzzles at our local Dollar Tree (see HERE). Not only are this little gems so fun and addictive to play with, but they are really fun to look at, and can be incorporated nicely into decor.

Capree noticed that West Elm has larger version of them for $16 (see HERE).

In the future I’m looking forward to creating a library/game room; where we can snuggle up by the fire with a good book or a night of games. Think: leather, tweed, dark woods, and vintage glass.

I’ll be incorporating these puzzles in there somewhere, but for now they’ll hang out on a pile of books, or perhaps stacked in a glass vase.

A White Gallery Wall

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Everyday I see something on a website or blog that I’m dying over, and immediately want to adopt it into my home. I’m sure you’re the same, and have files of ideas and inspiration of projects we’ll get around to one day.

Here’s one of my favorite walls in my home, so I thought it’d be fun to show the inspiration behind it.

Martha’s Photo Wall:

My Photo Wall:

I love how it turned out, and even like my version a little better!

The 2 inch line between the rows of frames, adds unity even with all different sizes. Printing all the images black and white also adds consistency, and bridges generations.

Have you been inspired lately? Better yet, have to made a project your own? We’d love to see:

Dove Beauty Bar

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

I have always loved Dove‘s body wash.  I like that the hubs and I can both use it instead of having separate “manly” and “girly” products. But mostly I love it because the post shower head-to-toe lotion isn’t needed, as Dove gives all the moisture my skin needs (even in this desert!)

Since it tends to be a little pricer than most body washes, Dove has always been more of a luxury buy and only purchased with major couponing; but not too long ago I found a swell deal at Rite Aid on Dove bar soap and decided to give it a whirl…now I’m totally converted to the bar, as it gives all the benefits I previously enjoyed in the body wash for way less mula.

I paid less than $1 per bar and it lasted over a month!  I am so excited that my “luxury Dove” is a total money saver.

I could be a Dove commericial…”I’m never going back to regular soap” :)
