Nature Valley Granola Thins: My Official Review

Posted by Brooke on August 11, 2011 in Product Reviews, Random Thoughts

Nature Valley (ahem, General Mills) has been desperately trying to get people addicted to these granola thins. I know because I had tons of coupons for them that have been accumulating almost every week. They were finally cheap enough at Safeway that I decided I would pick some up. They are regularly $3.99 and on […]

Ten Dollars at Target

Posted by Brooke on August 7, 2011 in Random Thoughts, Shopping trips

There is some concern at that I am just “hoarding” at this point, but you say hoarding, I say stocking up. The truth is, I am buying things for the game of couponing, but I make it a point to ask myself with every purchase: is this something I will actually use. One thing I’ve […]

A few months back, I abandoned Bank of America in favor of a […]

Thrift/vintage is somewhat of a cottage industry here in Portland. Options run the gamut between totally free stuff* that people around town leave on the sidewalk in boxes, to showing up at designated times for first dibs on bins full of junk&treasure at Goodwill, to standard thrift department stores, to curated collections of fine vintage […]

Thanks Sweetpea!

Posted by Brooke on June 27, 2011 in Random Thoughts, Scores!

One of the rules I’ve set for myself is only purchasing one Sunday Paper a week. There are a few reasons for this, but the main one is cost (others being hoarding prevention and my desire not to prolong the life of the print industry.) At $2 a pop, buying a bunch of papers could […]

Yeah, I’m Couponing

Posted by Brooke on June 26, 2011 in Random Thoughts

If you know me well, you probably won’t be surprised about my latest hobby, because I get into random, ridiculous things all the time. I’ll be honest, I saw Extreme Couponing on TLC and said, that looks fun. I’m not doing it to save money or support my five kids on $150 a month, but […]
