Reminder: Today Is The Last Day For The Free Nivea Coupon

Reminder: Today Is The Last Day For The Free Nivea Coupon

niveaDo you have the free Nivea lip product coupon sitting in your pile somewhere?

We requested these back in December, and mine just came last week … with an expiration date of March 31. Not exactly a long coupon.

I took mine to CVS today and used it to pick up a Nivea lip butter. Maria said the caramel wasn’t that great, so I picked up the vanilla and macadamia nut.

You can use this on the tubes of lip balm too, but I have so many of those, so I wanted to try something else.

Do you have this coupon? What did you use it on?

*HOT* Walmart: Softsoap Body Wash $.48

*HOT* Walmart: Softsoap Body Wash $.48

softsoapI was walking around Walmart yesterday, and stumbled over a huge display in the middle of an aisle. There were 7.5oz bottles of Softsoap for only $.98.

There’s a $0.50 off one Softsoap Body Wash printable, making these only $.48 a bottle. This is the perfect size — and price — for gift bags. Love it.

The Deal:
Purchase:
$.98 — Softsoap body wash, 7.5oz

Coupons:
$0.50 off one Softsoap Body Wash printable

Total after coupons: $.48, for a total savings of 51%.

CVS Coupon Alert: $4/$20 Or $5/$30 (Today Only!)

CVS Coupon Alert: $4/$20 Or $5/$30 (Today Only!)

cvs couponJust wanted to post a reminder.

I got and email from CVS on March 28 for a $4 off $20 coupon, valid through Sunday, March 31. Some others got $5 off $30.

You must either use the coupon or send it to your card by today.

I always send these to my card because I’m too cheap to pay for ink. When you make a purchase, it will show on the register and you can either choose to use it or save it for another purchase. It doesn’t automatically come off.

Anyone going to face the last minute Easter shoppers and use this today?

Giveaway: Gorton’s Seafood Prize Pack (Ends 4/5)

Giveaway: Gorton’s Seafood Prize Pack (Ends 4/5)

gortons9Lent is officially over, which means a lot of people will stop eating fish on Fridays and go back to eating whatever is quickest to cook.

Gorton’s makes fish so easy that you can really enjoy it year round. Plus, Gorton’s now has 20 selections under 200 calories or less, so you’ll be able to find something for everyone.

Now, I’m going to be honest: I’ve never eaten a full fish meal before (except tuna fish). I grew up having a bite here and there of my dad’s fish on Fridays, and I ordered crab cakes once. That’s about it.

We went to Harris Teeter to see our choices. I was surprised at how many there were to choose from. There were fish sticks (which I know a lot of people associate with Gorton’s), shrimp poppers, salmon, tilapia, and more.

It was hard for us to decide what to get.

I told Pete I wanted to start off with something with a milder taste. I wasn’t sure that I would like something that was incredibly fishy.

We picked up the salmon, but ultimately, it was the tilapia that we tried first.

We figured a fish sandwich would be a good introduction for me. Plus, we brought home some amazing bread from New York.

We didn’t have mayo, which actually worked out because Pete has been thinking about homemade mayo for a long time. I didn’t take pictures of him making it, but it involves oil (he used canola but you can use olive), egg yolks, and lemon juice, plus whatever spices you like.

He used a hand whisk to combine all the ingredients, but I’d really suggest a hand mixer instead of mixing by hand. It would have come out a little less gelatinous.

Now, onto the sandwiches.

Preheat the oven and place the fish on a baking tray.

Follow the instructions on the package, flipping when necessary. Pete did this using a Gorton’s branded spatula while wearing a Gorton’s branded apron and pot holder (more on that later).

Spread the mayo on the bread.

Top with the fish.

gortons8

Top with an egg. Okay, this part is optional … but since we made the mayo using just the yolk, we didn’t want to toss the white. So Pete cooked it and topped the sandwich with it.

For my first fish sandwich, it was great. The tilapia was breaded, but it wasn’t too much breading. And it didn’t taste fishy at all. The first inside was really flaky and it was easy to cook. We baked it and didn’t have any problems with it coming out overbaked or overcrunchy.

I’m really excited to try the other varieties of Gorton’s now.

You too? Well, guess what. One lucky winner will win a Gorton’s prize pack, filled with five free product coupons, plus a Gorton’s apron, spatula, and two pot holders. To enter, just use the Rafflecopter below.

*HOT* Walgreens: Care Bears Baby Wipes Only $1 (Til Tomorrow)

*HOT* Walgreens: Care Bears Baby Wipes Only $1 (Til Tomorrow)

carebearI was just talking with my Twitter BFF Kim about her hunt for Care Bears wipes. I really thought that was a typo, but not, it was what she meant.

Through tomorrow (March 30), Care Bears wipes are on sale for $1 at Walgreens. They are usually $2. This is for the 120 wipes pack.

Now, if you compare that to Amazon, well, Amazon is selling Care Bears wipes for $12.50 for a 120 pack. It’s the same exact pack. So when you can get 12 for less than the price of one, that’s worth running out for.

Have you seen these at your Walgreens?
