GoGurt

2 Comments

This product is by Yoplait. The box says portable lowfat yogurt, freeze n' go...thaws by lunch. It is so colorful attracting kids attention at the supermarket with some boxes having pictures of their favorite cartoon character like sponge bob. My daughter loves this so much that she could finish several tubes in one seating (8 tubes in a box).

It comes in different flavors - watermelon, strawberry, melon, paradise punch, berry and cotton candy. Regular price is $2.79 but it was on sale this week at my favorite supermarket for $1.49 each. It was the best time to stock up in my freezer.

This Pinay Is At The Winter Olympics Too

9 Comments

We were watching the figure skating last night and when her name was announced as Amanda Evora, I was 100% sure she is Filipina. Her parents were at the audience supporting her and her partner Mark Ladwig. Amanda and Mark were silver medalist at the US National Championship which earned them a spot to be with the US team at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. This is their biggest competition and they both stand on the 10th place.
Amanda Evora was born in New York to father Vic from Calapan, Mindoro and mom Mary Ann from Isabela. She is the first full Filipino to be representing the U.S. at the Olympics.

Go to any denny's restaurant in the U.S. today from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and get a free grand slam breakfast. I saw this ad while watching the Super Bowl last Sunday. Denny's have done this in the past and they are doing it again today. So if you live close to a denny's restaurant why not take this offer. Do not oversleep, you only have up to 2 p.m. If you miss this chance, go back to denny's on your birthday and get your free original grand slam as a birthday treat.

A Storm Is Coming

1 Comments

This was the scene at the supermarket this evening. The parking lot was packed and you can feel the rush from people buying food in preparation for the storm and sunday's super bowl, salt or de-icer, shovels, snow blowers and ice scrapers. Everybody thinks that they won't be able to get out of the house tomorrow so you have to do what you have to do now. We are expecting around 6 to 9 inches of snow starting tonight until tomorrow. Southern parts of Jersey are expecting almost two feet of snow. It is for sure that we will be digging out snow this Super Bowl weekend.

Store Brand Formula Savings

0 Comments

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

Looking back at my spending habits when I was single, I was not frugal at all. I go to a grocery store and buy my stuffs as I need them without even thinking if I was making any savings at all. The words “coupon” and “savings” never became significant to me. Everything changed when I started to have my own place and live independently. It became worst actually when I started to raise a family. Now as a mother, a week always start with the Sunday paper for my weekly coupons. I have always this in my mind ….save, save, save!

When you have a baby, a big chunk of your budget goes to buying baby formula and diapers. They are not cheap and these are the things you cannot do without but there are several ways to minimize your expenses. Let’s start with the baby formula. Start using store brand baby formulas. Your baby still gets the same nutrition as the big know brands but with savings of as much as 40% per ounce. If you want to save more, you can do a Baby Formula Quiz at babyformulaquiz.com and get a $3 off coupon. You can also get a store-brand formula coupon by completing the name and address form at storebrandformula.com. Store brands nfant formula are available at leading retailers such as Kmart, Target and Walmart.

Spread this good news to all moms out there. Get the savings you deserve now!

For $10 Bucks

0 Comments


So I went to Macy's last saturday, being the last day for the gift card. Thank god i saw the expiration. Oh it's not a gift card because a gc has no expiration but just a $10 card you can spend.

I bought this pair of jeans and shirt for my daughter. It's on clearance at $6.99 each!!! You can't beat that. The original price was $19.99 and $24.99. Using my $10 gift, I only have to add $3.98 cash, no tax because jersey does not tax clothes if less than $100. Sweet!
