Harris Teeter Tripling Coupons - 5/27

Ok, I just heard this over at Faithful Provisions...Looks like Harris Teeter will be tripling AGAIN on the week of 5/27.

This also means that (for all you Brentwood, TN shoppers) the Kroger stores in close proximity will be tripling around the same time in order to compete for business.

I got it straight from the chatty checkout dude. : )

Get Free Diapers From Arquest - Get Paid $10 For Your Opinion!

I'm posting this specifically for my sister : ) Just saw this over at Engineer A Debt Free Life and had to let you all know. Here's what the Money Savin' Momma had to say:

"You get about 20 disposable diapers (or training pants) sent to you FREE in the mail, and then they send you a check for $10 after you complete a quick phone survey.

The name of the company is Arquest, and they are looking for moms of children still wearing diapers. (Sometimes they have trials with disposable training pants/pull ups as well.) If you have a child in diapers/pull ups and want to leave your name to be contacted when they have more openings, call:
  • GIRLS: 1-888-342-7372 ext. 646
  • BOYS: 1-888-342-7372 ext. 634
You can also press 9 for "diaper study" when you call the above number. It is a recorded message.

You will need to leave your name, your phone number, your child's gender and diaper size. They will call you when they have an opening. (Be patient, it can take 4 - 8 weeks to be called the first time! But sometimes they will call you right back, the same day!)"

For more information, you can read the complete article at Engineer A Debt Free Life website. Just knew I needed to pass this along.

Sourdough Bread Recipe - Wish Me Luck!

I'm hoping to catch some wild yeast! OK, I know that sounds weird, but it's true. I just found out that sour dough bread is made from a starter that "catches" wild yeast as it sits on your counter. Totally bizarre. However, it got my frugal brain thinking. "You mean, I can stop buying yeast for bread? Hmm...." I wondered if, here in suburbia, I could possibly get that to happen, so I've got a bowl of flour and water out on my counter right now and my fingers are crossed. : )

Here is the link for how to get started. Sounds like fun (or at least like a fun science experiment with the kids). Hey, if your starter doesn't work out, you can make some awesome paper mache masks or ornaments or something. For heaven's sake, don't throw it out! : )
