UPDATE! Bloggy Giveaway -- FREE yogurt!

It is time again for the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival and as is my custom, I am posting my giveaway later than I anticipated. But it's a great giveaway with lots of winners!

If you are one of my few "regulars" then you know that I try to be frugal. My frugal attempts have been noticed and I have received 15 coupons for FREE (up to $3.63) ONE package of Yoplait Kids Cup Yogurt OR Yoplait Kids Yogurt Drink. This is my son's FAVORITE yogurt. Each coupon expires 10/28/08.
**UPDATE: I JUST GOT 15 MORE COUPONS, I WILL GIVE 15 PEOPLE 2 COUPONS EACH!**

Rumor has it that I may receive more of these; however, at this time, I will give one coupon away per winner, which means I will have FIFTEEN winners!

To win, just leave a comment, BUT I have one request, leave one tip on how you try to be frugal (or how you would if you were trying to be frugal). If you don't leave a tip you will not qualify for the giveaway. You do not have to be a blogger, but be sure to put your email address in the comment so I have a way to contact you for your mailing address.

Comments will be closed on Saturday April 26th at 2p.m. EST. I will post the winners by Sunday April 27th!

So get ready to test your luck. Oh, but if you live in California, Idaho, Louisianna, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota or Tennesee, you may not be interested in this giveaway. The coupon is not good in those state. Sorry!

Good Luck! And don't forget to check out all the other giveaways here!

My daughter's a big yogurt fan. :) One way I try to be frugal: I use swaptree.com to trade out my old books and CDs for new ones.

Natalie said...

I make our bread because where we live it's way too expensive to buy it at the store (I guess that's part of living in the boonies). But along with being cheaper it tastes good too! :)

My kids love yogurt too! My tip on being frugal - Well, my dad and I have competitions on who can use the most coupons and get the highest % off when we shop (he's retired, so he usually wins, but it's fun!) I make my daughters vege soup once per month and freeze it in small containers that I can take out and put in a thermous. I use cloth napkins so I don't have to buy tons of paper ones. Thanks for the opportunity! kristi at pacific dot net

I try to be frugal by using coupons and buying things on sale. :)

jskell911 said...

My biggest money saver has got to be with coffee. I drink ALOT of it and so does my husband. At $3 a cup we'd be poor in no time. So, we bring a thermos and travel mug to work with us and probably save about $50 a week each!

Lizardbreath said...

Yum! I love yogurt. I buy my fruits and veggies at the city farmer's market on the weekends - and I buy whatever veg is on sale and then tailor my meals around that.

michelle said...

I make a lot of our meals from scratch using sale items, items purchased in bulk and stock-piled, and simple ingredients. I have also started making my own cleaners and use things like vinegar to clean a number of things around the house. It is much cheaper than bottles of harmful cleaning products. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

Tuesday Girl said...

I clip coupons and check the sales online to save money

Brooke Lorren said...

I always combine coupons with sales. We also try to use leftovers in new meals.

I learned how to make cheese sauce in the blender and can use it for macaroni and cheese and nacho sauce.

Great yoghurt. I try to be frugal by couponing, searching out sales and price matching.

Karin said...

I like to shop at garage sales and thrift stores---you can save $$ that way!

acdaisy95 said...

One frugal tip I use is search online forums to see if there are any good online deals vs b&m deals. And I also clips coupons to save money when the advertisements come out weekly.

Thanks,

I often add black beans or rice to meat to make it go further... especially if all of the nieces/nephews are here. Let's you hide nutrients and it's yummy too :)

With 1 income and 3 kids, I have to be frugal. I use coupons everywhere I go. (I love combining coupons with sales.) I also check www.BradsDeals.com when I'm going to purchase a big ticket item. It is website that posts current coupon codes and deals for TONS of stores/websites.

I always do my grocery shopping with a list, otherwise I buy the whole store and end up with just junk food and no meals! Thanks for the great giveaway!

nor_lou said...

corordinate coupons with a great sale and stock up (last year I bought 10 mutligrain cheerios for $4.50 total, the regular price for one. Just make sure your check the use by date

Tammy said...

Frugal is as frugal does that's what I say (did that make any sense? I posted waaaay too many of these comments with the last 24 hours attempting to be frugal see?). Anyway, we do not eat out unless we have a coupon for the restaurant or we have a gift card, that really helps, me not look at the food and say "I could have made this myself for x amount of dollars!". We also use homemade dishwasher detergent which is a lot cheaper than store bought.

Marly said...

It's hardly a new tip, but as often as possible, I try to hit the "coupon hat trick" where I'll combine a sale with a store coupon and a manufacturer's coupon. On a very rare occasion, I'll hit a "grand slam" with a rebate as well. But alas, those are few and far between. :)

Courtney said...

I shop CVS :) And my kids love this yogurt!

I try to be frugal by shopping with a list and NEVER straying from it. I would love the yogurt...it is a staple in our house. Thanks for the entry.

Lilith Silvermane said...

I am a frugal mom. I have to shop and cook for 8 people in my house. One of the ways I cut down on costs is by making my own furniture polish. I love it, and it's environmentally friendly!

1 cup of olive oil
1/2 cup of lemon juice

Shake and spray! FABULOUS!
I dont' mind my 15 month old being around when I use it. It's a great way to clean the wood in your home!

lovedandamazed said...

I try to be frugal by shopping the sales paper at my local store, and buying locally as much as possible. We don't have a WalMart or Sams close to us, so I try to stay here and be creative as much as possible. Thank you! We love yogurt. :-)

WE love yogurt..thanks!

We practice frugality by cleaning out our closets 2x a year and using hte things we don't wear or have outgrown to resew things we do need. I recently used old clothes to create a rug, apron, bags for christmas gifts and bibs. A great way to get cute fabric without the cost!

Annabelle said...

I have been using Vinegar to clean with along with baking soda/water mixture. Another way that I want to start is by getting back into the coupon thing.

Summer said...

We eat a lot of beans and rice. I'm being completely serious. Lol!

PS said...

Coupons. I study up on Sunday nite and head out Monday morning!

Sarah Berry said...

I shop at CVS they have lots of deals if you use the extra care bucks. I won't have to buy toothpaste for a year

Wendy said...

Since I've started trying to be more frugal this year, I've been learning how to use the Extra Care Bucks program at CVS. Last week, I bought two packages of diapers, two bottles of saline solution (for my contact lenses) and several other items for about three dollars! You can't hardly beat that! I only wish I'd known about it sooner. :)

All clothing (except undies and socks) are bought at yardsales and thrift shops. We frequent the library. I accept all hand-me-downs, especially furniture. I've switched to CFL bulbs. That's just a few!

Qtpies7 said...

I cloth diaper, even though the diapers are about $18 a piece, it has saved me a TON of money!
I also use thrift stores and yard sales as much as possible, use freecycle.org, and I do reviews to get free books and products!

Kara said...

I try to be frugal by stocking up on things when they are on sale so I don't have to buy them all the time at normal high prices.

I try to be frugal with clipping coupons. It helps stretch my grocery bill a little farther.

Dawn said...

I'm definitely a coupon clipper!!

We cut out fast food as much as possible. Also I buy 16.9 oz packages of pop to bring while I'm out. I can't go without pop, so it saves me $1.50+ at the gas station.

I keep an open eye on the sales, plan the meals according to the sales, and buy clothes for the next year when the season finish and they are like 90% off!!

hdrake said...

I am a very frugal person. My best tip would be to use coupons for everything from groceries to eating out everytime. But buy only the things you need, not just because it is a great deal.

Tip to be frugal - I drive the car with the best gas mileage when I don't have my son with me. I don't need all the conveniences of my Highlander without my son, so I drive the Corolla. My e-mail is anaj06@mchsi.com.

Love your blog and the yogurt giveaway! What a great idea!!!

I save money by using a local rug manufacturer's retail outlet store to buy rugs for our home. Seriously, they sell the rugs for a fraction of the real retail. A rug that would cost $69 at Wal-mart would sell at the outlet for $20. And the large 8'x 10' I bought for $200 would have sold for retail at over $800!! A great savings!

Thanks again!

My best frugal advice is shop at Walmart. I save a ton on groceries from there compared to Food Lion. I would love to know how people go to CVS and get so much stuff for so little money. I need some help. lol Thank you!

My frugal tip is that I try to buy all of our clothing on clearance for the next season, like buying winter coats right before spring for next winter. Thanks Sarah

My tip is watering down creamy salad dressing. Blue Cheese and ranch are always too thick to coat salad evenly anyways, so I add a little water. Makes it more healthy (cause you're eating less) doesn't change the taste (unless you ad a A LOT of water) and makes it last longer, which makes it cost a little less.

Connie Cotton said...

My great tip (lol, if you could call it great)! I've signed up for kizoodle, where people swap their items for free. I use ton's of coupons with every trip to the store. I search online for FREE samples, you never realize how well those are.
Great Giveaway!

Adena said...

I have several ways which I blog about as well. BUT....I realized our eating-out expense was out of hand (we are a family of 7) so now instead of eating out, I make copycat recipes at home. You can google search and find restaurants' recipes.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for giving these away!! I am frugal by always planning my meals before shopping, coupon clipping, doing the majority of my shopping in one day to save on gas, buy in bulk and foodsaver, price shop, and so many more. Thanks, kkhd@excite.com

Both my kids love the Yoplait yogurt. I love it because it is healthy and does not contain high fructose corn syrup or artifical colors. I would love a coupon, anything to bring my weekly grocery bill down. Thanks for posting this on Vicky's Deals!
