Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

  • Email Rachel: rachel@mashupmom.com.
  • Comment on any post where it seems to fit.
  • Post on the Facebook Wall.

If you are sharing a deal from another site or an online coupon, please include the link. If you found a deal at a specific store, please include the location.

Dollar Tree

  • Dani reports on the possible free south beach diet snack bars, “just note that it only works on the snack bars.  my dollar store only had the regular bars and coupon didn’t work.  I was there so thought I would try it out.”

Friday Freebies

  • Continuing on the Burrito topic from yesterday, Feelgood reports. “Shopped at Meijer in Homer Glen last night, they had two varieties of Tina’s burritos. Their weekly ads often advertise Tina’s burritos, so other stores may have them, too”

Jewel

  • Feelgood found a coupon,  “There’s a $1.00/1 Sara Lee snacks coupon to clip on MyMixx” Sara Lee Snacks are tagged $2.00 right now. There is also a printable.
  • Laura also found a coupon for the New Essentials deals, “Also Wild Harvest Organic Facebook page has a new coupon for $1 off when you buy 2 Wild Harvest Frozen Vegetables.
  • LC has a question about MyMixx , “I tried to use it with my 10 digit number but it looked like it needed to enter 11 digits.For those it worked for, did you only need 10 digits for it to work?”
  • Brandy also reports on the some deals of the week, “MyMixx worked this morning at the Jewel on Naper Blvd. in Naperville for those Screamin’ Sicilian Pizza. Also, The deal on Bud Lt. 12pk bottles ($7.99) + 2 Red Baron pizzas ($3ea) =  $13.99 – Instant $5 savings gets sweeter. I unfortunately didn’t find peelies on the Red Baron and don’t have any other coupons… but did find a peelie for $2 off chips for buying a 12pk of Bud Lt. Totinos were $2.50, so ended up getting a 12pk of Bud Lt., 2 Red Baron Pizzas and 1 bag of Totinos for about $9.50.”

Online Shopping

  • Matt comments on refurbished desktop computers, “These are not bad. You can find similar deals like these over on Staples website. They are basically Vista era Dual Core machines that have been refurbished. A Windows 7 Home Premium copy on DVD is $100. So this is fairly cheap for a used machine not for sale on eBay. Although a serious user would want a bigger hard drive and more RAM. I think if you have a little more experience with computers it’s not a bad idea to pick up a used computer from someone like Regency Technologies on eBay. I’ve bought a couple computers from them and I think they are fairly reliable. The only exception being that some of the computer towers they sell do not include operating systems.”

Recipes

  • Nita has a yogurt recipe, “i make home made yougurt all time . 1)1/4 gallon  –2% or whole milk on gas stove until boil turn off.leave it until 20 mnts to cool down 2) Add 4spoon of yogurt culture (reg plain yogurt ) in to the boiled milk. mix well with hand mixer.and cover with top.I use small mason jars and divide it for each use 3)Turn on empty microwave for 2 minutes 4) mixed milk put it in microwave -do not turn on (just for temperature consistant) for 5-6 hour and it will be ready.5)You can put in refrigerate  for 7-10 days.
  • And another from Fran, “I make my own yogurt quite often, too, and pretty much do the same thing as Donna does. When it sits overnight, the temp needs to stay between 105 and 110 in order for the cultures to stay alive and multiplying. To do this, I wrap the covered pan in a couple of beach towels, then put it on a heating pad set on the lowest setting overnight. In the morning, I strain it through re-useable coffee filters (which btw, I just yesterday saw on clearance at Jewel for .99) You could use regular coffee filters, too, or even muslin cloth as a filter. I strain quite a bit of whey off to make it very thick; almost like cream cheese. The longer it strains, the thicker it will be. There are other recipes I’ve found as well on this site: http://nourishedkitchen.com/easy-homemade-yogurt-matsoni/ some of which are very, very easy. This site also has links with ideas for what to do with the leftover whey. Making yogurt is very easy and pretty fool proof as long as you follow the temperature guidelines to keep the cultures alive. Good luck!”
  • Letsshop comments, “You make it sound easy enough ,need to check if I still have a thermometer around ! Thanks about the tip on looking at carton to see if their are live cultures ! Thought it would be good with fresh fruit and maybe freeze for future deserts (: husband and I have a terrible sweet tooth at night ):And really want to loose some weight this year. Thanks Fran ,It sounds a little complicated maintaining  temp. And didn’t realize you had to strain it too !!! will give it try”
  • Kay responds, “Letsshop, my microwave has a probe and temperature cook setting. I put the probe in the milk and set the temp for boiling. The microwave turns off when the milk reaches the temp and then I leave the probe in and the microwave shows the temp as it falls to where I need to mix in the yogurt. Meanwhile I have my slow cooker on low with some water in it. After I mix in the yogurt, it goes into the slow cooker on low overnight. I don’t have to do anything to make this, except mix in the yogurt. When I make stuff on the stove or oven, I often forget about it (luckily my oven turns off if I set cook time). Using the microwave and slow cooker makes it goof proof. I don’t strain mine – just depends how you like it”
  • Paula sent some ideas, “Yes, we’ve made yogurt many times-mostly to avoid ALL the sugar/sweetener in the store-bought stuff.  I love this blog-she makes her own yogurt weekly and tells you all about the process: http://www.salad-in-a-jar.com/skinny-secrets/healthy-homemade-greek-yogurt
  • More from Meg, “I am form India and we make ypgurt(Curd, as we call it) every single day. I don’t watch for temperature or do any measuring. I have been doing this for the past 18 years. I boil milk on the stove..I tried microwave but stove top is the best. I let it boil…just watch that it doen’t boil over.  I let it cool on the stove top until like luke warm …I touch with a finger(clean:)). I pour in a steel or ziploc container and add 1-2 tablespoon of old culture or yogurt. I keep it near the stove or on the counter top. I get a perfect yogurt in 3-4 hours in summer,…it takes about 6 hours in winter. We eat yogurt with rice everyday and I never bought store ones ever. May be one or twice to start a culture. All I can say is it is science but rocket science. :)”

Staples

  • FunSavingATon  comments 100 Hefty CinchSak odor block trash bags $10.99, “These are a breakroom item and quality for the 20% off breakroom coupon in the ad as well as the 25% back in rewards promo. Stack the $1.00/1 manufacturer coupon from the 1/4 RP for a really good deal.”

Wayfair

  • Stacy has a question on the 10% Off Your First Purchase, “Has anyone ordered furniture from Wayfair? I’m considering ordering a sofa from Wayfair. I’m a little hesitant to order furniture without actually sitting on it, so I was hoping to hear from anyone who has ordered with them. Thanks!”

  • Laura comments on deals of the week, “Went to Jewel in Minooka last night and the lady at the service desk said MyMixx will not work until the 28th. I asked about the Kids free fruit card and she didn’t have this years card but she said the old card’s still work. I didn’t try it though because I wasn’t sure if the cashier would know that.”

Reader Requests

  • Jolynn sent some info on making yogurt, “Ive made yogurt a lot,  no special yogurt machine needed.  I heated milk on stove. Mix with a yogurt container and moved to crockpot.  Crock pot goes in warmed oven overnight.  It was too loose for me so I drained in the fridge.  Look up receipes on line for necessary tempertures.   It was too much work for just me. My kids woundnt eat it.   Fun to try.  Go for it!”
  • Donna also has a yogurt recipe, “I also make my own yogurt about every other week.  It is so easy, and I don’t use a yogurt maker. I just heat a gallon of milk to about 180 degrees.  Let it sit on the stove until it cools to about 110 – 115 degrees.  Then you have to mix it with prepared yogurt (just make sure the container says ‘Contains Live and Active Cultures’.  you need those to make yogurt.  Then I have an insulated pack that I set my bowl in and cover with towels and put in a warm spot to sit and culture overnight. In the morning I have yogurt.  I strain some of the whey from the yogurt since I like it more the consistency of Greek Yogurt.”
