Coupons continue to amaze me with their discount power. I also am amazed by the great giveaways I have for you this week. Did you enter My Yogi Tea Giveaway? Did you enter the Initially Yours Monogramming Giveaway? Did you enter the Great Gathering Giveaway? All three of these giveaways will close at 9 pm CST on Friday, May 9 so get your entry in now by posting a comment or sending me an email! And watch for a new giveaway that I’ll be posting by tonight!

This past week I got all kinds of stuff for free at Walmart by using coupons. Who knew that Walmart’s low prices make for some great deals using coupons, even though they don’t double and triple them like my Kroger store does. I might be visiting Walmart a little more often now to see what else I can get for free. And I think I’m addicted to All You – I’ve never seen such a cheap ($1.77) magazine filled with so many (34) manufacturer’s coupons.

For my Houston, Atlanta, and Chicago readers, I’ve heard that the American Baby Faire is a great event to go to for free samples and coupons (but they do charge admission), and if you are an expecting mom don’t miss Chicco’s BumpaPalooza event for Houston on Saturday, May 17 – it’s free to attend, the first 100 get a free Chicco You & Me carrier and you might help set a new Guinness World Record.

Just when you started to get low on your supply of free Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate Cereal, a new super cereal coupon emerged. It’s the new $3 Kraft LiveActive Cereal coupon I’ll take it to Walmart because Traci told me they have it priced at $2.79. But wait! You can get more Honey Bunches of Oats for free if you buy the Sunday paper! I’ve heard that there is a form to get a full refund on a box of Honey Bunches of Oats in this Sunday’s paper. The coupons and refund forms in the Sunday paper ad inserts vary slightly by region, but I’m hoping this rebate offer will be showing up nation-wide this Sunday. Anything else good in this Sunday’s ad inserts? It all depends on what you buy for your household, but I will definitely be using the new Barilla Piccolini Pasta coupon (save 50 cents on 2) when I see this new product on the shelves, remember I told you about this cute book offer?

Ocean Spray continues to reward me for being a fan of their products and they mailed me a coupon for a free bottle of Ocean Spray 100% Juice. Speaking of getting coupons in the mail for free products, I’m hoping that Country Bob will be sending me a coupon to try their sauce for free (they sell them at Kroger and other stores). And don’t miss the Nestle Crunch Sweeps because they are giving away 10,000 free candy bar coupons! And even more companies want to send me coupons to try their products for free, including Kahiki and YoMommy.
