If you do not have a CVS card, you must get one! It's free and easy to get, in the store ask for one and they will hook you up! Be sure and be on their e-mail list. The first time you give them your e-mail address they will e-mail you a $4.00 off anything coupon, click here to be on their mailing list. And when you are on their mailing list you will get cool coupons like the one below! I just got this today and off I went and I chose the shave cream! ABSOLUTELY FREE!



The first thing I do with my CVS card when I walk into the store is find the "magic red box". The price scanner box, I scan my card and out pops a coupon JUST FOR ME.

Things you should know:
  • You cannot share CVS Extra Care Bucks, the code on them will work only with your personal coded CVS card.
  • Extra Care Bucks are time sensitive, the higher in value the quicker they expire.
  • You can receive an Extra Care Buck every 4th time you use a reusable bag (you have to get one from CVS with their special scan tag. You can only get credit for one bag once a day.
  • You get 2% back for all CVS brand product you buy.
  • They will e-mail you, save $5.00 when you purchase $25 worth of merchandise
I keep all my Extra Care Bucks and CVS coupons in a small envelope marked CVS.

Today was a great shopping day at CVS, EVERYTHING IN THE PHOTO ONLY $9.85 best part it I still after 4 months of shopping there had not used my $25 gift card they gave me when I filled my first prescription s minus the $6.30 I only paid $3.55, the first cash I have paid in CVS yet my receipt reveals I have spent over $140! Amazing!! Now many of the Facebook coupons I used are probably already gone, you have to print those fast!

I went in with $1 Extra Care buck
The machine gave me a $2.00 Bounty Towel Coupon
I already had a $2.00 Bounty coupon that was mailed to me from Bounty

Iams Dog Food Giveaway

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

Shana's dogs Truffles and Mocha were very excited that finally they got to help with product review! I am crazy about my furry friends and are careful what I feed them.

Iams has just recently launched PreBiotics formulas for cats and dogs. My dog's nutrition is very important to me. They have adjusted easily to the food and I feel good about what I am feeding them. Iams sent me a coupon for a full bag of dog food (up to 20 lbs) Before I went to the store, I checked out their web-site. I love this feature that you answer just a few questions about your dog and they match up the Iams dog food that is right for your pet and you can compare it with other dog foods on the market.

Healthy eating includes natural foods that aid digestion and support the immune system. Pre- and probiotics, most often found in yogurt and other dairy products, have become a staple for a healthy human diet. PreBiotics works to keep your pet’s digestive tract healthy and will help in build strong defenses. Want to win your own Iam's Dog food coupon? Enter today. Simply just write a comment about your dog. Can't wait to read about all the "doggy Memphis Mommy" readers. Iams did provide Shana with a product for the purposes of this review the opinions expressed are entirely hers as given to her by Truffles and Mocha.

Country Crock Butter Giveaway

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

Country Crock did a survey on children and healthy eating! I (Shana) have to say this is a very easy review for me to do as Country Crock is the only butter in a tub that we use. So I was thrilled to get to try their butter that is Trans Fat Free. My kids gobbled it up just as they do the "regular" Country Crock, they did not seem to miss the Trans Fat one bit! ;0)

And I discovered they have a really fun web-site for kids. And of course check out Country Crock web-site which has a $.40 coupon you can print right now.

I found some of the survey result info they sent me interesting and wanted to pass it along to Memphis Mommy Readers.

Getting kids to eat healthily is a challenge for most families and 90% of parents are concerned about their children understanding the importance of healthy diet and exercise, according to a new survey. The survey, by Country Crock, which has removed all trans fat from its soft spreads, also found just 11% of parents say their families eat healthfully enough. Other findings:

  • 69% of parents who want their families to eat a lot more healthy say they read nutrition labels and 86% are concerned about the amount of trans fat in their family’s food
  • More than half of the concerned parents (51%) say that the rising cost of healthy food choices is a deterrent for purchasing better options for their family
  • Picky eaters are a major hurdle among parents who are concerned about their children understanding the importance of healthy diet and exercise; nearly half (49%) find it challenging to get their kids to try new foods due to limited preferences
  • Outside pressures on children that encourage unhealthy eating (32%), and the negative influence of advertising and marketing of unhealthy foods (34%) add additional challenges for concerned parents to win the battle to serve better food options
Country Crock will send one Memphis Mommy reader a Trans Fat Free Tub of butter. How to enter? Simply make a comment on this post! Either share what you like to spread Country Crock on the most, or a comment on the challenge of getting kids to eat healthy.

Yes, Country Crock did provide Shana with a free product and yes these thoughts and opinion are entirely hers.

Recipe Idea: Cookies for those with Allergies

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

A wonderful My Memphis Mommy Reader Kelly Blumenthal sent in this recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with easy adjustments you can make for any allergies.

This is from a Whole Foods recipe on their website that I adapted. Love it because it is nut and milk free. I use dairy free butter (Earth Balance) for butter substitution found at Whole Foods or Wal-mart

I make half of the batch with chocolate chips and the other half with carob chips (Sunspire brand – Whole Foods), since Chocolate is an allergy trigger for me.

I like to use an all-purpose flour which is easier to find and less coarse than whole wheat.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, softened

3 tablespoons canola oil

½ cup evaporated cane juice sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup quick cook or old-fashioned rolled oats

¼ cup wheat germ, preferably toasted

1 cup all-purpose flour

¾ teaspoon baking powder

½ cup seedless raisins

½ cup chocolate or carob chips

Method

Preheat oven to 375F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together butter and oil until completely blended. Whisk in sugar, egg, vanilla and salt; set aside.

In a second large bowl, combine oats, wheat germ flour and baking powder, then add to butter mixture and stir well

to combine thoroughly. Fold in raisins and chocolate/carob chips.

Drop dough by the spoonful onto prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart, and bake until cooked through

and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Carefully transfer to wire racks and set aside to let cool completely.
