1 medium very ripe banana mashed
1 small apple diced
1/2 cup of milk

Mix all ingredients together. Put mixture in muffin cups (for me this made 12 small muffins - depends on the size of the muffin pans). Bake according to package instructions. Might need to bake additionally because of the fruit.

Almost Forgot! Dine for Less!!!

I got an email from them today and this a very good deal. I have bought and redeemed their gift certificates a few times. I would not exactly call them gift certificates but more like coupons. Right now they are having a sale I guess you could say and you can get $25 gift certificates for $3 with this code : SAVE . Code expires October 13th. Gift certificate expires 1 year after purchase.

Easy to use put in your zipcode and then search! Buy online and print now or later. I think they might have an option to send the gift certificate to you (not too sure though).

I have found out I have at least one reader on here! And it has made my day!! lol I realized I had some comments and I was so happy to read them (especially since they were nice comments). Thank you Johanna! I really want this blog to work. I want to pick up readers and hopefully help others out who are like myself. I mean times are really rough right now and I am sure they are for a lot of you. I don't know about any of you but I like to get free samples in the mail and free magazines and coupons. I think I currently have at least 10 magazine subscriptions and I only paid for one of them (and it was only $5) ! There is no way that I could currently pay for all of those so it is great that I managed to get them for free. Now that I realized that at least 1 person is reading this I will set out to get some more links for samples etc. on here pronto!!

New MSN Homepage

I absolutely hate it! I truly feel that the previous one was more user friendly. The new one annoys me so much that I am going to get a new homepage. Any suggestions?

Shopping Tips and Samples

Go here and print your $5 off coupon (off $20 purchase) for Walgreens good Friday and Saturday only.

Walgreens has Huggies on sale for $9.99 each and you get $3 coupon if you spend $14 and $5 coupon if you spend $20. Hopefully, you also have some Huggies coupons to use with the $5 off coupon above.

CVS also has a $5 off coupon towards $25 for members of their CVS preferred card club. You should have gotten an email from them about it and also letting you know that your CVS extra bucks are also available now and will be printing on your next receipt.

They have a special on Nestle products buy $15 worth and get $5 CVS bucks back.

They also have Pampers on sale for $9.99 which if you coupons for Pampers and some CVS bucks laying around it is a good deal. Always use coupons with sales!

I am going to buy 1 package of Pampers with a $1.50 off coupon and then buy $15 worth of these Scotch products and get $5 CVS Extra Bucks back. I need that stuff anyways. And of course use my $5 off coupon towards it all.

Some free samples for you all.
