One of our new favorite meals-Gorton's Frozen Products





My wonderful wife received coupons to review Gorton's frozen seafood products.  Having varied tastes we each picked out our own product to try, I chose Shrimp Scampi in a Creamy Garlic Butter Sauce.  I had decided while picking it out to serve it with pasta, which happened to be one of the serving suggestions on the box, the other was to pair it with rice.  The shrimp was easy to prepare, just needed to heat in a skillet turning occasionally for about 12 minutes.  A nice creamy garlic butter sauce comes out during the cooking process, you can get more sauce by adding some water to the skillet while cooking the shrimp.  I added a little extra flavor to the dish by adding a can of Italian seasoned diced tomatoes to the skillet during the last few minutes of cooking the shrimp.  I served the shrimp with rotini shaped wheat pasta (my favorite), and some sliced and buttered Italian bread.  I found the dish to be flavorful and filling.  Total prep and cooking time was around 30 minutes, so this could be one of those quick meals to prepare when you are short on time.  I will keep this meal in my rotation since I found it to be pretty good.

As a cooking tip, remember you can add extra flavor to pasta by preparing it in beef or chicken broth instead of water.
This part of the review was written by Betsy's husband, Josh.  




Betsy...
I chose the Southern Fried Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillet.  There are 6 pieces so I had another sandwich for lunch the next day.  I baked the pieces on a non stick baking sheet until they were nice and crispy-about 20 minutes turning half way through.  I then enjoyed a great fish sandwich on a sesame seed bun with cheese and a little tartar sauce.  I really liked how the fish stayed crispy and had a great flavor with a little kick.  It really was an easy low cost meal!

Extreme Couponing 101-Coupon Etiquette and Coupon Techniques


Extreme Couponing 101
Brought to you by the My City Mommy Network

A Valpak national study says close to half of us… 40% now search for deals or coupons before making a purchase.  And 41% of coupon users come from households earning greater than $70,000! (Nielsen Online Research)  That means we are all becoming savvy shoppers, wanting to hang on to our money rather than spending aimlessly on daily needs.

Many believe clipping coupons takes too much time or somehow looks cheap.  The truth is, spending 20 minutes clipping coupons before you shop can save you up to 30% at the grocery store. What's not cool about that?  Do you get paid that amount in 20 minutes working every day?  There are so many online resources and deals found for you that saving money at the store doesn't take a lot of time.  It just takes a person willing to follow directions on how to make it happen.  If you buy only generics, that is a good savings tactic.  But I know many who prefer national brands on certain items... if that is the case, using a coupon or two can save you even more than generics and give you the ability to stock up and save when those brands go on sale.

Coupons are everywhere and more than likely available on ALMOST ANYTHING you use, and yes, you can even save going organic.  The key is not buying things you won't use just because it's on sale and you have a coupon (or consider donating those items to the needy).  I consider coupon money and treat it as such.  Also, take heart in knowing that retailers don't lose money when you use a coupon.  Retailers receive back the face value of a coupon in addition to a handling fee of 8 cents.  

We will be sharing very valuable tips on how to coupon with you.  First things first… let’s learn how to become a savvy couponer.






Coupon Etiquette
*Don't photocopy coupons- it's illegal and hurts the retailers and all using coupons
*Use only one manufacturer coupon and store coupon per item
*Don't try to use a coupon for which it is not intended for- it's unethical
*All coupons must have expiration dates or stores will not accept them
*Don't clean the shelf off on a good deal- share the wealth

Coupon Techniques
*Stack store coupons with manufacturer’s coupons
*Price Match at Walmart and Target
*Take advantage of stores that double and triple coupons (i.e. Tom Thumb, Kroger, Albertson's)
*Take advantage of rain check offers
*Buy only when an item is on sale
*Use a Coupon Database so you aren't always clipping coupons- find your coupons when you’re ready to shop and then clip
*Stack Coupons- i.e. manufacturers coupon, store coupon and $X off $XX
*Take advantage of store loyalty programs, register promotions, gas rewards


Coupons to the Extreme- Now that have a general knowledge of coupon techniques, here are some additional techniques to save you even more money when you buy.


* Stacking Coupons-Did you know you can stack a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon?  That’s two coupons per one item.  You use this technique when items are on sale and are maximizing your savings efforts.

*Double Coupons- Many stores still double and triple coupons.  This is a store sponsored event and a great way to maximize the savings of a coupon.  Become familiar with your store coupon policies and what they will double and triple.  When a coupon is doubled, the store pays for half of the value of a discount.

*Overage- Overage happens when the value of a coupon exceeds the price of the item.  Many stores will allow you to apply the exceeding value to the rest of your shopping order.  

*Price Match- Walmart and Target will offer a price match guarantee.  The items will have to be identical and you will have to bring the print ad to show to the cashier.  

*BOGO Coupons- Buy 1 Get 1 Free coupons (also known as BOGO coupons or B1G1 coupons) allow you to purchase one item and get a second item of equal or lesser value for free! You’ll want to pay special attention to the fine print on the coupon as there is usually a maximum value stated on the coupon (this maximum value is the most that the manufacturer is willing to reimburse the store for the “free” item). With a B1G1 store sale, you are purchasing 2 like items and then automatically getting one item for free when you checkout. Since you are still essentially purchasing 2 items, you can use a B1G1 coupon in conjunction with the B1G1 store sale to get the both items for free (one is free after the store sale and one is free after the coupon). *Important Note: Read your store’s coupon policy very carefully as some stores (most recently Rite Aid ) may prohibit the use of a B1G1 coupon in conjunction with a B1G1 store sale.  You will also note that many are considering this usage of B1G1 unethical.  You have to use your own judgement on this one.


*Rebates- Mail-in-rebates are an added way to save and often honored based on the price of an item or an amount you will spend

*Rain Checks-  When there are good sales, often stores will run out of items. Don’t forget the power of a rain check where a store will honor the sale price of an item at a future time.

Pay it Forward with Flip Flop Wines and Soles 4 Souls


I was lucky enough to get some of the Flip Flop Wines to review! Not only were they yummy, but did just what a wine does...relaxed me for the evening! One glass was enough for me to share on a nice evening with my husband after we got the kids to bed.  We got to sit outside and enjoy a glass for our nine year anniversary!  It was a rare treat for us, to say the least!   I got one bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and two bottles of Chardonnay.  Both were more dry, but they were so very delicious!  We had Betsy and her husband over the other night for some pizza and we enjoyed one bottle of the Chardonnay...it went great with the pizza and was just delicious!
 
Here's the thing I love about this wine...it's not expensive. I am not, by any means, a wine connoisseur, but I do enjoy a nice glass of wine that isn't going to break my bank! This was it. 

Founded in 2009 by David Georges, Flip Flop Wines shared their passion for wine and for helping others with the world. The idea was simple, make a wine that could be enjoyed and afforded by everyone, while helping those in need around the world.

I wanted to tell you about Flip Flop Wines because they believe in Paying It Forward. This year Flop Flop Wines has partnered with Soles4Souls, a non profit organization that distributes shoes to children in need.


I had no idea that over 300 million children do not own a pair of shoes. By not owning shoes children are exposed to diseases and injuries that can easily be prevented. This is where Flip Flop Wines comes in, they want to help Soles4Souls reach their goal of 11 million pairs in 2011, and to do so they have vowed to donate one pair of flip flops for each bottle of wine sold in 2011.
