  • Morning Coffee: Wow, a happy marriage on TV

    Earlier this week while I was making dinner, I watched an episode of White Collar, USA’s newest drama. If you’re around my age, you probably remember Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly from Saved by the Bell and Valerie from Beverly Hills 90210. On White Collar, she’s married to an FBI agent, and I found myself thinking about how refreshing and wonderful it was to see a happily married couple without much drama in their marriage. I hated Valerie, but I’m actually finding Tiffani Thiessen to be likable now. And since I live in LA, I once saw her smoking outside a salon :)

    This week’s Amazon Friday Saleisn’t quite as small as last week’s, and in fact, looks a lot like two weeks ago:

    • KitchenAid Flat Floating Rack Roaster-just $26.99 (list price is $50). It gets an average of 4 stars out of 5 in six reviews.
    • Rachael Ray Bubble & Brown Stoneware- $29.99 (list price $39.99). I’m not a huge Rachael Ray fan, but I do think these oven-safe serving dishes look great. The blue and orange sets are included in today’s sale.
    • Calphalon12-Quart Stockpot- $47.99 (list price $168). It gets 4 out of 5 stars in 143 reviews. The vast majority of the reviews are positive, but the negative reviews complain that the pot is not up to Calphalon quality. At least one of the reviewers wrote that she complained to Calphalon about the interior coating coming off and they immediately offered to send her a different replacement pot.

    The Walgreens Friends & Family coupon I mentioned yesterday is now available here. Common Sense with Money has a few scenarios you might want to try. The coupon provides for some great money-making opportunities.

    The Walgreens deals remind me to remind you that you should sign up with manufacturers who send out coupons. I had used up all of my Dove Men+Care coupons, but then Dove was kind enough to send me a $1.50/1 coupon in the mail (along with a few other coupons that I hope to use later). So now I can go get my $2.40 in overage today.

    Common Sense with Money also has a scenario for getting Pampers for less than $3 at Rite Aid this week. (Sorry locals, this deal ended yesterday for us.)

    Bring this printable coupon to a Sephora inside JCPenney for a free 10-day sample of Bare Escentuals BareMinerals Foundation with brush. (Via Freebies 4 Mom.)
