Welcome new fans!

Just wanted to send a little ‘hello’ out to all of my new fans and blog subscribers! Now that things are starting to get a little more busy, I plan to make this a weekly blog, maybe even bi-weekly. I don’t post a lot, so I promise not to spam up your inbox unless its for a good reason. :) Recently the very cool people over at Cloth Diaper Addiction did a review of my Reusable Snack Bags! She has a giveaway for them on her blog as well that ends tomorrow night! So if you haven’t entered, do so quickly!

 

Also, we are SO close to 300 fans! That is really exciting! I never dreamed I would have this many facebook fans so quickly! I am challenging my current fans to get me to 300 before August first! If we achieve that goal, I will have a very nice coupon code for you all good for any of my in stock items! The sale will only be a couple of days though because we have our family vacation coming up soon. During vacation, my website will still be open but I will not ship until I get home. That will be announced closer to vacation, too.

 

So please post on your wall, suggest my page to your friends… and lets hit 300 so we can have a monster of a sale!

 

Thank you!!!

Jill

Happy 4th of July Weekend!

This weekend just about everyone is either headed to or having their own barbecue. Between Canada Day and Independence Day, we all have something to celebrate. But just take a moment to reflect what the holiday means. For us here in the US, we celebrate our nations birth. We celebrate together as a free country. When you see an American flag, because I have no doubt that you will at some point, take a second to remember all of the service men and women who fight for our country in the past, present and future. So wear your red, white and blue with pride! And remember Freedom isn’t always Free.

 

Have a safe weekend, friends!

Also, I am having a sale on the website! Use code AMERICA to save 17.76% and get free shipping on orders over $15!

I added a few new items to the website tonight! A few new prints for snack bags and wipes and I also added reusable tote bags! I am going fabric shopping (again) tomorrow so I will have more pictures tomorrow night. I have also added some of the new pictures to the facebook page. And I am also looking for a few testers for Mama Cloth! The prototypes are up on the site to check out and there is also a coupon code to get them at a discount. Please, testers have to already be using mama cloth. If you have any questions, you can either comment here or email me at Jill@crunchycreations.com

Hope you all have a great weekend!

My Coupon Binder

If you have read my previous posts, then you know that I coupon. I am not as heavy into it as the people you might have seen on Extreme Couponing on TV, but I do pretty well. I can go to the grocery store and get about $100 worth of groceries for about $30. I call that a good day. Sometimes better, sometimes worse. Like when my husband springs on me that he needs food to take to work for a potluck and he already told them he would bring X and I don’t have any at home. I typically don’t order coupons from anywhere. But I have ordered full inserts and coupons from a clipping service when the deals were just too good and I wanted to stock up. I get my coupons from family and friends who don’t use them, or after they have already been picked over. I don’t cut out EVERY coupon, only ones that I ‘might’ feebly use. Example, I wont cut dog food coupons or disposable diaper coupons because we don’t have a dog, and we cloth diaper. :)

I found this binder at Walmart a few weeks ago and it was in my price range. I have been on the hunt for a zippering binder but I refuse to pay $25 for one. This one was $10. And I think it works great. At least for my needs.

This is the inside of the front. It has space for pens/scissors and a business card, which I also put in a card with my phone number in it. ( I DID lose my coupon binder once before I got this big one and was seriously lost. lol I called the store and thankfully someone turned it in)

Then it also has this little zippered section that has a pouch for a cell phone or iPod. It even has a hole from the front that you can feed your ear buds through to listen to it with the iPod concealed.

When you open it up it has one three-ring binder on the right side and on the left is a file folder section that I have my store coupon policies in just in case I would ever need them.

Here are the sections I have at the moment. I might buy another set of the 8 dividers and then separate them a little more. But for now this works well for me. I have them laid out in the order of where things are in my local grocery store. Of course Produce is first and the meat/cheese counter but I rarely have coupons for that so I didn’t make a section. Next in the store is health and beauty… etc.

Random picture of a page of coupons in the baseball card holders. I think I paid $3.50 or something close to that at walmart for them. And I have a lot extra. But then again, I don’t keep a lot in stock in the binder. They go in, they will be getting used soon.

Here is a picture of a large coupon that I was able to fit in the space of 2 baseball cards.

Those little plastic seams are just heat pressed, so they come off pretty easily.

Just grab the seam and push your finger down the seam and it should separate easily.

Dont mind the blurry pictures.

And here is an internet printable that takes up the whole row. But at least you don’t have to go buy any more sleeves that are more expensive than the baseball card ones. If you have any questions, let me know. Id be happy to answer them.

 

Do you coupon? Do you have a binder you would like to share?
