Saving - LOCALS: 1-Hour Photo Session & CD Of Images $60!

Wow, this seems like a fabulous deal!  Over the next few days you can grab a Groupon good for a 1-Hour Photo Session (you choose the location) & a CD of your images for just $60 from Plooster Photography!

This is a 70% savings, as it is normally $200!  I can easily spend this much at the JC Penney's studio with my kiddos and not walk away with the CD of all the images!

Check out the Plooster Photography portfolio here.  Definitely some cute photos!

Get your deal here!

Pick your location within a 20 mile radius of Sioux Falls for your photo session.  And don't forget the CD is yours to do what you want!  Expires 9/1/11.  Limit 2 per person, but may buy multiples for gifts. 

Plan now for that family photo on your Christmas cards.  Have a child entering senior year?  Why not start senior photos now!  Maybe a newborn?  A great opportunity to update that outdated extended family photo hanging on your wall (isn't there someone missing from that photo? lol)!

What will you use yours for?!

Saving - Blockbuster Express DVD Rentals 5 for $2 ($.40 each)!

The fun Blockbuster Express deal has come around again.  You can go over here to Groupon to grab 5 DVD rentals for just $2, that's just $.40 each!

This makes for a great gift too, if you have someone on your gift giving list you need to cross off! Christmas is just around the corner! :-)

Expires 5/1/13!  And it may be worth noting you do not need to rent all 5 DVDs at one time, you can use this over multiple visits!

Grab your deal here.  If you don't see it, choose Modesto, California and look on the side deals bar to the right!

Saving - *Hot* Banana Boat & Hawaiian Tropics Deal @ Target!

Did you notice the $5 gift card deal on the last page of yesterday's Target ad?  I have been waiting for a nice deal to get stocked up for the summer and I think this is a great deal to do just that.

Purchase 2 select Banana Boat or Hawaiian Tropics sun items, get a $5 Target gift card!

Even better, I was able to find the $1.79 Banana Boat Sport lip screen included (however note that a purchase of 2 of these will not que up a gift card...must purchase a sunscreen or after-sun or aloe product with it).

Deal Scenario:
Purchase Banana Boat Sport Sunscreen $6.49
Purchase Banana Boat Lip Screen $1.79
= $8.28
Use $1/1 Banana Boat 5/22 SS, June All You or June Real Simple
= $7.28
Receive $5 Target Gift Card!
= $2.28!

*The Banana Boat After-Sun lotion marked at $4.99 were also marked as inlcuded in this sale.  I did this deal as well and it did NOT prompt the $5 gift card so the cashier removed the $5 from my order.  But just a heads up that there could be a few issues with this sale.  Be on your toes!

Hawaiian Tropic coupons available are: $1/1 5/22 SS, May All You or here

Saving - Sunshine Farmland Thick Slice Bacon $1.99 - Ends Tuesday!

Saving - PBRbor Day Rebate Form! States: SD, MN & MO! Plus Updated Plant List!

Well, let's just say that this post is more of a heads up post as I cannot really point you to an actual deal...you will just want to keep your eyes open for this one!

While visiting a local liquor store to grab the hubby and I a little beverage a few days ago, I came across (what I consider) an awesome rebate offer from Pabst Blue Ribbon!

No purchase of beer necessary.  Just send in your reciept including your garden center or garden supply purchase of $5 or more and they will send you a rebate check for $5!

Purchases must be made between 4/10/11 and 6/15/11.  So if you are like me and looking for ways to save money on your yard this year, keep your eyes open for the rebate form pictured above!  Ooooh, I am excited! :-)

And if you are interested, I updated a few of the prices on the price comparison list of plants and soil.  Enjoy!

Living - Whatchya Got Cookin'?! Chili for Quick & Easy Summer Meals!

I know, it might sound a little strange to be making chili this time of year, but this time of year I make a final batch of chili to get us through the summer.

I make a batch and then freeze it in smaller baggies to use over the Summer for the following:
*Chili dogs (hot dogs with chili and shredded cheese on top)
*Baked potatoes with chili and cheese
*A quick dish for potluck gatherings - add chili and Rotel to melted Velveeta for a chip dip
*Or if you are up for it, just a nice reheated bowl of chili!

So grab your favorite Chili recipe, get it cooking and then portion out to throw some in your freezer for easy cooking this summer!

If you don't have a fave recipe, here's the simple one I use (and adapted from my Mom's recipe)!

This is a double batch, so if you don't need as much you can divide it in half.

What you will need:
2 lb ground hamburger - cooked
2 cans stewed tomatoes (I used 2 jars home canned tomatoes)
1 can rotel
2 cans chili beans
Cumin 2 tsp
Chili Powder 2 tsp

What you will need to do:
Blend together stewed tomatoes, cumin and chili powder until smooth. 

Combine with cooked hamburger, beans and rotel.  Heat through completely.

If you have a favorite chili recipe, share in the comments.  Or do you have a tip in using your chili during the summer months for quick and easy meals?  Please share as well!

Happy cooking!

For previous recipes highlighted, check them out here.

I am still hoping for some LLS readers to share their recipes with me to highlight them on the blog!

Saving - Smores Ingredients Special Purchase Deal @ Target!

This week, Target is offering a Free bag of Kraft Marshmallows when you purchase a box of Honey Maid Grahams and 6 pk Hershey's Chocolate bars ($2.99 each).

They have also just released a new $.50 off 1 pkg Hershey's Chocolate bars coupon over here.

PLUS - don't forget these manufacturer coupons to stack with:
Buy Hershey's Choc bars & Nabisco Grahams, get Free Marshmallows here and June All You
$1 off When you purchase all 3 products: Hershey's Choc bars, Nabisco Grahams and Kraft Marshmallows 5/15 SS

So here's how the deal would look:
Purchase all 3, Receive Marshmallows Free with special purchase = $5.98
Use $1 off 3 5/15 SS
PLUS use $.50/1 Hershey's Target coupon above
= $4.48 for all 3

Price Matching:
*Kmart has the Nabisco Honey Maid Graham crackers for $2 via Super Coupon on the back page of their ad - Note: I am not sure if Target will price match this since it is technically another stores 'coupon', however it is in their ad so it is possible, we'll leave it as it is a YMMV (your mileage may vary)

*Walmart has the 6 pk Hershey's Chocolate bars marked at $2.48 in their ad

If you are able to price match both, here is how the scenario would look:
Purchase all 3, Receive Marshmallows Free with special purchase
Hershey's Choc Bars $2.48
Honey Maid Grahams $2
 = $4.48
Use $1 off 3 5/15 SS
PLUS use $.50/1 Hershey's Target coupon above
= $2.98 for all 3

And I couldn't help but share this wonderful picture I took while at Walmart.  The coupon fairy struck Walmart!  I found several coupons laying around the store that day.  I think that is great!  I also love leaving coupons in a store near the product.  Hopefully others are excited to find useful coupons in the store on products they were planning to purchase!  I know I love finding an extra coupon every now and again!  Do you 'coupon fairy'?

Saving - Target Dasani Water HangTag & Deal!

This week at Target you can find the 8 pack of 12 oz Dasani water on sale for $2.50.  The better part of this is that you may be able to find the hangtag coupon I found pictured above.  This is a Target coupon good for Buy 2 Get 1 Free!  So if you are needing to stock up on bottled water for the summer, here's a nice deal:

Buy 3 Dasani Water @ $2.50 each = $7.50
Receive 1 Free with hangtag coupon - deduct $2.50
= $5 or $1.67 each

Even better?  Do you still have your Diet Coke coupon booklet I told you about here?  If so, there is a coupon good for $1/2 multi packs Dasani water.  So your deal would look like this:

Buy 3 Dasani Water @ $2.50 each = $7.50
Receive 1 Free with hangtag coupon - deduct $2.50
Plus use $1/2 coupon from booklet
= $4 or $1.33 each

Now, let's say you really need to stock up...here is another scenario for you:

Buy 6 Dasani Water $15
Use 3 $1/2 coupon from booklet - deduct $3
Use 2 hangtag coupons Buy 2 Get 1 Free - deduct $5
= $7 or $1.17 each

Saving - Potting Soil & Other Outdoor Price Comparisons!

I am in the mode of getting my hands dirty in my yard.  Busy cleaning, preparing and soon to be planting!  Yipee!  The time has finally come!  With that said, I am always trying to save some money on this fun job as well.  I would love to hear how you save money on the purchase of your annual flowers?!  This is one I struggle with.  I love pots and pots and pots of flowers at my house, but the cost of the plants add up quickly.  Suggestions welcome!

I am doing a little price comparison on potting soil and other fun outdoor necessities for this time of year, so thought I woud share them all with you.  It was sort of an afterthought this week, so it is not a complete list, but will update as I go.  Let us know if you have other prices available as well!

Prices in Red were updated 5/29/11.  I am unsure of the end date of the other prices, so you may want to call ahead and verify first.
