CAUTION: it's being reported online that some target computers are not programmed to take target coupons for the FREE box, so if you want to avoid any possible frustration, omit the 4th Target printable and pay $1 out of pocket for each set of 4 kelloggs cereals. Also, my RR and Pflugerville targets will take more than one target printable /transaction despite the new wording on the coupon. If you know from past experience that your target enforces the new wording, this may not be the deal for you.

Here are two sources for printable coupons for $1/1 ANY special K

With these 2 links you should be able to print 4 from each computer.

Happy Shopping!

Album Review

The one2one network offered me the chance to listen and review Kenny Loggins' new children's/family album ALL JOIN IN.

We first listened to the album as a captive audience taking Karl to work one morning. I really enjoyed the music--it was upbeat and made me want to tap my toes.

We all enjoyed the "andy song," as my three year old, Henry, referred to Loggins rendition of You've Got a Friend in Me. It is always nice to have instantly singable and recognizable songs on an album.

However, I did not care for many of the song's lyrics. Gandhi/Buddha offered a message of karma/reincarnation that as a Christian, do not want to teach my children (however subtly.)

Other songs were so ambiguous--There is a Mountain, Your Lollipop-- that I wasn't sure what the song was trying to convey lyrically. And because it wasn't clear, I wasn't comfortable singing along or having my kids memorize it (as kids naturally do--they are sponges!)

I really wish the album had included a set of the lyrics inside the case. Typically, when I first listen to an album, I curl up next to to the stereo with the lyrics and learn them right off the bat--to me songs are immensely more enjoyable when I can sing along.

Had a copy of the lyrics been included, I believe some of the ambiguity that I experienced when listening to the tracks would have been allayed.

I had never followed Kenny Loggins' music before, but apparently his album "Return to Pooh Corner" is still the #1 best selling children's album of all time. I may check that out from the library on our next visit.

Why I love Extreme Couponing!

Bottom line: $20 ECB profit!

I started with $19 in ECBs and spent $1 real money oop. I ended with $39, and still need to return a $4.89 notebook that evaded my radar :)

Here is a link to my 4 Transactions at 2 stores. Not pictured: milk, sneaky notebook, 9 Reeses.

Awesome night! There are 2 CVS stores withing a mile of each other, so when the first wasn't stocked with Glade, I did a quick transaction and headed to the other. The second store was fully stocked--SO NICE!

HUGE thank you's to my brain trust on the right. I have these gals entered into my Google Reader, and when they post all of their research, I compile it right away into a Google doc to keep everything organized. It's because of their hard work that I come up with these great outcomes.
