  • Morning Coffee: Need to bake this week

    The cooler weather this week has been fabulous, and I’m thinking I really need to get some baking done before it warms up again. I have some overripe bananas so it’s time for more banana bread, although this time I think I will make muffins. I also have some blueberries, so I’m thinking it’s time for that blueberry-lemon coffee cake.

    CellfireThere are new e-coupons at Cellfire.com, including some of the usual General Mills coupons, plus a 7-UP coupon that I’ve never seen before (come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a coupon for 7-UP).

    ZyrtecYou can register for a printable coupon for $2 off Zyrtec. (It’s funny how our bodies can be so different – this stuff is apparently nondrowsy for some people, but it knocks me right out!)

    Printable Coupons and Deals reports that the printable coupon for $0.35/1 Goldfish Grahams is back, but it isn’t a reset as I got a message that I’d already printed the limit.

    Totally Target has some grocery deals updates from Target.

    PampersThrough August 31, get double points at Pampers Gifts to Grow when you enter codes from Pampers Splashers packages.

    Baby Toolkit put together a nifty and easy “Thanks a Latte” teacher appreciation gift.

    Common Sense with Money reports that you can get $1 flipflops at Old Navy on Saturday.

    Wild for Wags reports that she got a $1/1 Sure antiperspirant/deodorant coupon on Sunday that makes for $0.50 Sure at Walgreens this week. But I don’t think we got the coupon here in SoCal, so it’s probably regional.

    If you shop at a military commissary, you may want to check out this list of current deals.

    Get a printable coupon for a free 8×10 at Picture People (expires 6/30). I’ve become a big fan of Picture People after taking my boys there twice and getting great results. Plus, unlike some studios (that’s right, I’m looking at you, Target), they’ll give you prints right on the spot instead of making you wait a week.

    Facebook likers of Alpo can get a free sample of Alpo dog food.

    Money Saving Mom experimented with making her own laundry detergent.

    1. ITIN Number says:

      Freeze your over-ripe bananas until you are ready to use them. No bag, nothing, just throw them in the freezer. They actually come out of the cold even sweeter which makes some great banana muffins.

    2. Uhh..zyrtec makes me so jittery, then by 11 a.m. my eyes are shutting! It's the weirdest sensation, to be so jittery you're hands are shaking, yet feel so exhausted. I'd rather suffer thru the allergies than feel that way.

    3. Chief Family Officer says:

      @ITIN – Thanks, I always freeze extra bananas for baking. I never really thought about the extra sweetness, but you're right, it's there!

      @Zena – Agreed!
