Similac Savings!


My beautiful little boy was born 10 weeks early.  At birth he weighed 2 lbs 3oz.
Six months later, he's up to 14.5 lbs! He's amazing!
 
Similac and Enfamil make great formulas for preemies.  My baby boy's digestive system prefers Similac.  The problem lies in that I have coupons for every sort of formula EXCEPT Similac!

I wrote their customer relations department and let them know that my baby and I prefer to use Similac. I proceeded to ask if there was anything they could do for us.

They sent me 8 bottles of formula and $10.75 worth in coupons!  Each can costs $15.49 (for a tiny 12 oz can) so any little bit helps!  They were so nice, too.  I like dealing with nice companies. :)

Here's a picture of my baby boy for fun.

awww my baby was born at 1 lb. I pumped BM but I only got one ounce each time (i was in ICU). So we had to supplement with Similac as well (Neosure). Now that she is 17 months we are on Pediasure which is even more expensive YIKES. I get coupons for it, but still with coupon the generic is cheaper. It's costing about $8 a day to feed her.

Wow Ava. They certainly are worth every penny, aren't they?!

My baby is on 24 calorie formula right now. And I'm hoping that in the next visit, I can drop him down to 22 cal. I know that he'll at least be on NeoSure until November.

Good luck with you baby boy! Are you purchasing the generic or Pediasure? Do you notice any difference between the two?

Hi I was just reading your post and I have 2 $5 similac checks that I would be happy to pass along. I have been lucky that I haven't had to use formula with my babies and would love for someone to get to use these coupons. they are called checks but they work just like a coupon. they sent me a big sample box too if that is of any interest to you. just send me an email if you want them.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…
