Culinary Crafts: More Christmas Cheer!

Need a last minute, crafty Christams gift?  Leigh's got you covered with some great, quick and easy, ideas!  Check out More Christmas Cheer (or iSurf) for her latest and greatest!  There are some pretty good Christmas candy coupons available now and another coming this Sunday!  You know I'm leaving her a comment, so head over and see what else I had to say! We Have A Problem

If you tuned into the blog earlier today you probably saw my post for the super great $1 off ONE Mountain Dew coupon on  I printed my copies and put them on the desk, took my kiddo to school, and then noticed when I got home that the printed coupon says "Save $1.00 on any TWO Mountian Dew Bottles (20 oz).  What?!  You're kidding me, right?

And then I find this coupon has replaced the original coupon on the website.   And, if my eyes aren't deceiving me, there's even a typo on the coupon!  Doesn't the second "dew" have an "i" in it or am I seeing things?  That sloppy work just screams that was in a huge hurry to correct their mistake.  The conspiracy theorist in me says this a bait and switch.  But, in reality, the person who designed the coupon probably just goofed on the quantity which probably should have been TWO from the get go.

But, that doesn't mean that it's ok.  Now, here's what I encourage you to do.  You can contact and Mountain Dew to let them know that a misleading error has been made regarding the coupon released on today.  A little something like this...

This morning (12/8), the Mountain Dew coupon depicted on the website read "Save $1.00 on any ONE (1)  20 oz. Mountain Dew".  Unfortunately, the printed coupon stated a quantity of TWO.  Within a couple hours the wording on the coupon photo had been changed to "Save $1.00 on any TWO (2) 20 oz. Mountain Diew", matching the printed coupon from earlier.  This is not acceptable to me.  I want to know where is my coupon for $1 off any ONE (1) 20 oz Mountain Dew for which I selected and printed your coupon?  I firmly believe people make errors and that error has clearly been corrected.  However, my wallet shouldn't pay the price for a mistake.  Very Sincerely:

Also, give your email and mailing address.  Then, hope that they send you the correct coupon.  But, of course, don't hold your breath.  That little typo could equal A LOT of money depending on how many couponers printed it before the error was detected and corrected. 

The silver lining, is that coupon is still a pretty good one.  And it'll still be a good coupon to use at Dollar General on Saturday.  You'll just end up with two bottles of Mountain Dew instead of one.  It's not as great, but it's better than nothing at all, right?

{{HOT}} Mountain Dew Printable - Perfect for Saturday!

Save $1.00 on ONE Mountain Dew (20 oz)

Hooray!  Get a soda at the checkout for under a buck with this coupon!  Better yet, use it on Saturday at Dollar General in your $25 shopping trip!  Print your copies now before it disappears!  It'll print twice per computer!

Need A Kitten For Christmas?

Sorry, I didn't have time to chase them down for a cute picture, but I have three {maybe four} adorable little kittens that need a wonderful and loving home.  They were born on September 12th and are plenty big enough to be welcomed into a new family!  Up to this point they are all outside kitties.  There are two adorable little gray fellas and one gray mingled cutie.  I have not checked to see who's a boy and who's a girl, but if you want to know just send me an email ( or leave a message on the facebook page or a comment on this post.  If you live in the country cats are a great addition to your outside pet family!

I love Box Tops 4 Education!  It's a really easy way to give to your school.  I think each box top redeemed is worth 10-cents and you can find them on A LOT of products you probably already have in your kitchen {especially is you are a Kroger sale shopper!}.  Right now Box Tops has a daily chance for you to win  5,000 Bonus Box Tops for your school {if my math is working this morning that equals $500!}.  Sign up for a daily email reminder so you won't miss a day!  View a complete list of sweepstakes on the Box Tops website!  The daily reminder is for the Land O'Lakes sweepstakes, btw.  But, while you're there go ahead and enter the Totino's and Zoo Pals Sweepstakes, too!

Here's a look at Southside's Box Top Earnings as of this morning!  I know we've earned more than that, but we've still got a way to go before reaching that goal of $2,233!  Every Box Top gets Southside just a little bit closer!
