Free Food Offer

Look wht was delivered to me to from Schwan's Food Company:

8 Hamburger Patties


I signed up for a free delivery from Schwan's last week. They have a promo running thru 9-30-09 for $10 off your first order. Details here.

So I ordered the 8 pack of hamburgers for $9.99. Delivered to me today and the tax was $.80 or it was the delivery fee for whatever it was only $.80. :-)

So my thoughts, they were very yummy. The delivery man was nice, did offer me a couple of specials but did not pressure me. I liked that.

So I was not asked by Schwan's to review their service but hey good free food deserves a thank you.

Coupons Organized

Looks much better!! Don't you think. Remember the mess I posted a few days ago. Well last night I had enough and I sat down and organized my coupon binder.

My First Give Away

MyBlogSpark has provided me with four "Healthy & Fit Weight Management" gift bags that includes a Fiber One yogurt VIP coupon (good for a free 4-pack of Fiber One yogurt), cooler pack, and other storage items for you to carry your snacks and yogurt- it's great for work and other on-the-go activities! One for myself and 3 to give away to 3 lucky readers. You can also receive a $1 off coupon for the new Fiber One yogurt by clicking here.


Best-selling author and food expert Lisa Lillien, AKA Hungry Girl, has given her "seal of approval" to the new Fiber One yogurt, the only leading nonfat yogurt with 50 calories and 5 grams of fiber (20 percent of the Recommended Daily Value). It is also a good source of calcium and vitamins A and D, making this an all-around great choice for dieters and those watching their weight. Each cup includes the creamy, delicious taste you expect from Yoplait, and you don't have to feel guilty about enjoying it. Fiber One is available in a variety of flavors including, Strawberry, Peach, Vanilla and Key Lime Pie (see what Hungry Girl thinks about the new yogurt here!
