Free Glade Soy Candles @ Walgreens!

I love these candles. I got in on this deal last time and I can't use them enough. The apple smells delicious! I am hoping to get the orange creme one this time. Go HERE and print a $4/1 coupon and pair it with the $2/1 coupon from the Walgreens Easysaver catalog coupon (located at the front of the store). You can print this coupon twice, just keep pushing the back button until it prints again. May your house smell wonderful!

Naked Bugs

After laying my son's clothes out for him this morning he came running into my room stark naked. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "Mom, I'm making sure the bugs don't get me 'cause I'm naked." I said, "what are you talking about?", and he replied, "When bugs get into your house they like to get you when you're naked."

I'm concerned about two things, 1) Is he speaking from experience?, and 2) when have there been bugs in our house? Oh, the mind of a three-year-old. There's nothing like it, other than maybe the mind of my two-year-old. :)

Why I've Been Kind of M.I.A Lately...

I'm sorry I haven't spent a whole lot of time on my post here lately. I've been very busy with life and my other blog Lila's Pockets. I'm trying to get this new business up and running and to my surprise it's been going really well --- except that it does keep me busy. In the next few days I will get some posts up for all my readers. Stay loyal to Lizzy's Language. :) I will be back soon. I promise.

A Few Things Worth Mentioning Again...

I've posted about each of these sites before but they are all worth mentioning again for some of my new readers:


Search & Win

Swagbucks is a search engine site just like google or yahoo. Just by searching from swagbucks you earn points. You then redeem your points for gift cards to places like Starbucks, Target, Victoria's Secret, and so many more! You can earn about 3 to 4 swagbucks a day if you search daily. This adds up to a Starbucks card about every two months, or you can hold out for more valuable prizes (that's what I'm doing!) Go
HERE now to start searching and earning points! It really is that simple.

2. The Silver Jewelry Club
The Silver Jewelry Club is a company that literally is so confident that you will love their jewelry that they will send it to you for free and you only pay shipping. I can vouch for this company personally. The jewelry is beautiful and there are no strings attached. I highly recommend it. Click the icon below to start taking a look.

3. E.L.F. make-up
This is a make up company where everything is $1 -- really! With the coupon code CAROLINA you can get orders under $15 for 50% off. That makes the make up $.50! I can also vouch for this company as well. I used this to purchase party favors for a women's even that I was in charge of recently. I bought lip glosses for all the ladies who attended. It was a big hit. This would be a great idea for a wedding shower favor as well. Click the icon below to take a look.

4. Shop for Freebies
This is a cool new site that shows you the newest and latest free stuff offered online. I really like it and it is very easy to use.

5. Gevalia Coffee
This is one of my all time favorite offers. You can get a stainless steel coffee mug and 3 1/2lb. bags of coffee (you can choose the flavors -- many kinds) all for $3! I LOVE their coffee and the mug is really nice, too. I just wish you could do this offer more than once! Click the icon to try it.

6. Vista Print Business Cards
Right now you can get 500 business cards for $1.99. I have used Vista print before and they do a great job for such a good price. If you are in the market for some new business cards I highly recommend using this company and this particular promotion. Click the icon below.

Holy Cow! CVS Coupons Just Kept Coming!

So, the best part about my CVS run was the beginning of the month coupons I got from the scanner! Whoo hoo! Here's what I got: $15/75, $2 ECB, and $10/20 cosmetic coupons. This is what I got:

2 packages of Huggies $9.99 each
2 Johnsons shampoo $3 each
used 2 $3/1 huggies coupons
used 2 $1/1 Johnsons coupons
ECB's earned: $10 (wyb $25 of products)
Total: $7 for all of it!

Skintimate Shave Gel: $3.49
used $.55/1 from Kroger coupon booklet
ECB's earned: $3.49
Total: FREE, plus $.94 overage!

2 Easter grass $.79 each
ECB's earned: $2 (didn't print out so cashier gave me overage!)
Total: FREE, with $.42 overage!

Softsoap body wash: $5.29
used FREE coupon from Walgreens
Total: FREE!

2 Rubbermaid tupperware pkgs: $.75 each (75% off section)
used $1/2 coupon
Total: $.25 each!

Covergirl 3 eyeshadows $4.49
Covergirl 4 eyeshadows $5.99
Covergirl outlash lipstick $9.99
use 3 $1/1 coupons
use $10/20 CVS coupon
ECB's earned: $10 (wyb $20 of CG products)
Total: all FREE, plus $3 overage!

Then because I needed my total to get up to $75 to use my $15/75 coupon I got these things basically for FREE:
2 Edy's ice cream (BOGO) $6.29
Waffle iron/grill/sandwich smasher $6.25 (75% off)
2 Coffee mugs with cute little diamond designs $.38

**There was a ton of stuff in the 75% off section -- make sure you check your store!**

Because I was starting out with next to zero ECB's, I paid $18 OOP, but I earned $26 in ECB's so I'm stocked up for the coming weeks! It was exhilarating! (I missed you terribly today, Katie!)

Something a Mom Shouldn't Have to Hear...

My three year old son came up behind me tonight and said, "Mom, I really like your shaky butt." Ugh. Why do kids always have to speak the obvious out loud? Moms have to have great self-esteems otherwise we may all just find a hole and hide in it. Something to laugh about.

Overage on Starbucks Chocolate at Target!

Some of you may remember my Starbucks Chocolate deal at Target that I got a few months ago. Well, it happened again today! At Kroger you can get $1/1 coupons from the tear pad in the candy isle (I take a few every time I go in) for any Starbucks chocolate. Right now, Target has their Starbucks truffles (2pk.) marked down for $.90! I got 25 (I use these for favors at parties or put them in gift bags with other goodies) and used 25 coupons giving me $2.50 overage for all those candies. It was awesome! I found the truffles on an end cap near the pharmacy so I hope that helps. Let me know if any of you found this deal, too!
