Short Break

I’m taking a short break from blogging, but will return by Monday. Today was the last day of school for my preschooler. I can’t believe she’s off to kindergarten next year. But instead of going to school today, we headed to Shreveport for the annual Jambalaya Jubilee juvenile arthritis camp and conference. A news crew filmed me at one point, so if you live in Shreveport and saw the news, you may have seen me. :)

Between the end of school festival and class party, work and getting ready for this weekend trip, I have neglected my blog. I have also scaled way back on shopping because of my stockpile of food. I have only needed fresh produce, milk, bread and occasionally meat, but the pantry is starting to become empty so I’ll be back out looking for grocery deals soon.

I mentioned a while back that I am working on something that will make coupon organization and usage a little easier. I am still working on that. Hopefully a portion of it will be available this summer!

Instant Win Games

If you’ve read this far, then I want to share two instant win games I won this week. 2-4AM is a good time to try your luck at instant win games, so since I’ve been up already trying to get some work done, I’ve played a few games. Here are the two I won:

Honey Nut Cheerios Sweet Rewards Giveaway – you could win a cash prize every 10 minutes! I won $5 on my first try. Use code: k30fr h4f3h 7720 unless you have a cereal code already. This is the code I used to win. I believe it’s the generic code you get if you don’t have one from a product package.

Restaurant Style Salads from Home – Dole, Fresh Gourmet, Marie’s Dressing and Athenos Cheese have gotten together to hold this instant win game. It took several attempts for me to win a free salad. Not sure it’s entirely worth it given how long it took, but worth a few tries if you like salad.

    Hi! Welcome to Louisiana!

    Sorry I missed you on the news. I usually watch channel 3 (KTBS). Maybe you were on one of the other networks, or maybe that report will air tonight. I’ll be on the lookout! LOL
