Tight Wad Tips! Look what I bought for 50 cents!! LINK UP!

Nice right?  This is way more exciting than bringing home 10 boxes of Kleenex. :) I was able to do this because there are/were kiosks of Butterfinger $1/2 coupons hanging around Smith's!  So keep an eye out!  Then all you have to do is wait for them to go on sale for 50 cents. There is also a BOGO FREE coupon in RP 10/3...which is why I paid 50 cents. :) And NO I did not clean anybody out.  I'm very sensitive to that.  In fact it's funny how many places candy is stashed. Did you find a great deal?? Find a frugal recipe?? Have a great shopping trip?? Make a cheap necklace?? Have a great sale or discount?? ANYTHING of a Tight Wad Nature!! Link up so we can all learn from eachother!  I will put this up every Saturday.

Sodastream Review

I received a Sodastream to review and I absolutely LOVE it!  I'm always buying pop so I was excited to be able to make my own.  And I LOVE being able to control how carbonated it is!  I made some the other day that made me eyes  I can also make it really mild so my husband will drink it.  :) I walk to the store a lot which prevented me from buying pop too much.  Who wants to lug it all home?  I love not having a bunch of cans and bottles around.  I just make it when I want it.  It's really easy to do.  Watch this video to see.  SUPER easy!  You just use tap water, carbonate it in the fancy gadget, then add the flavor.  If you know a pop lover this would be an awesome gift! They have any flavor you can think of!  Over 30 different ones.  The diet flavors don't contain Aspartame and the regular flavors do not have high fructose corn syrup.  Right now you can use code BESTFRIENDS to get $10 off!
