Green Links: Saving Green and Going Green

Ugh! My husband is out of town for a little over 24 hours. Within 3 hours of his leaving, I get food poisoning. Or the stomach flu. Either way. Not pretty.

Hopefully by tomorrow I’ll be able to bring you our regularly scheduled program! Until then, I’ve got some greatposts you’ll love!

Green Links: 10/9/10 Friends Edition

As you know, I always try to share some of the interesting thoughts and information I find about Making Green, Saving Green, Going Green and Growing Green.

One of the beauties of this world wide web is there is so much good stuff out there. One of the downfalls of this world wide web is sometimes it can be hard to wade through everything there is out there.

Let me introduce you to some blogs you’ll definitely want to put in your reader!

Tiffany at Eat at Home ~ I’ve fallen off the menu planning wagon! But I’ve got something even better! Each week, my friend Tiffany puts together a menu plan and a shopping list. She then provides you with each recipe so you really can “Eat at Home”! This week her recipes included Stromboli and Apple Brownies. Yum! Be sure to catch her on Monday to get your own weekly menu plan!

Nikki at Coupon Cookin ~ Nikki and I met at the Savvy Blogging Summit and her blog is every bit as likable as she is! She is a chef who brings you all the deals and then shows you how to cook them! This week she made Frugal Candy Corn Popcorn Balls that would be a definite Halloween Treat!

Crystal & Co. ~ Mom to 5 boys – including a set of twins! – Crystal amazes me with her creativity with projects like Ghost Halloween Treats. You’ll definitely want to dig around her site and if you know anyone with twins – make sure they know about her!

Kay at Bucksome Boomers ~ Kay is another friend from the Savvy Blogging Summit and if you are looking for money making or money saving tips, she has them! Her recent experience with a subscription account service is a good read if you ever sign up for freebies.

Coupon Mommie ~ There are so many deals out there, no one deal blogger can find them all. The Coupon Mommie has lots of great deals every day. This week she found a way to get Free Holiday Labels!

Savin Some ~ Brandi has lots of saving tips and strategies. She and I both share a common problem – magazine clutter! Check out her strategies for dealing with it!

Top 10 Tuesday: 10 Fun Contests to Enter!

Do you have an autofill button? You may want one for your browser so you can enter at the click of a button! This Top Ten Tuesday is full of fun contests!

I like to imagine myself a winner. I think it’s those hundreds of emails I get in my spam box every day telling me that “You’ve WON!!!!”

Real life winnings? I can’t say I’ve had any. But there are some really fun opportunities out there – and who knows? Somebody has to win!

1. Martha Stewart and a Mop – No. Really. You get a mop. And you get to go to NY to see Martha. I don’t think you have to mop for her…but you never know!

2. $10,000 Kitchen Remodel for you AND A FRIEND!!!!! – Hershey’s will also give you some chocolate to put in that kitchen. Swoon. Now, how to pick only one friend….

3. $5,000 Room Makeover – Yeppers. I need this. Don’t forget to  un-check the checked boxes – unless you want their emails, of course!

4. $5,000 in Groceries – Good heavens. This could last some savvy couponers for YEARS!

5. Chat & Chew Gift Basket – Snyder’s of Hanover, Rachael Ray, Gretta Monahan and a $300 party gift basket just in time for the holidays!

6. Carve-a-Pumpkin – Carve a virtual pumpkin and possibly win $1,000 from Better Homes and Gardens. What a great activity to do for your kids! You can even print out the template to carve your real pumpkin!

7. Family Night In Package – You have 5 chances of winning Family Circle’s Family Night In package that includes a gaming system and a digital camera!!!

8. It’s In the Bag - Nabisco instant win game with prizes such as an e-reader and oh, how does $10,000 sound about now? I picked pocket #3 and won….nothing. Good thing I can enter again tomorrow.

9. Nuts from Mambo Sprouts – Follow them on Twitter or Facebook to get one of ten goodie bags. Don’t you just love goodie bags?

10. Elmer’s X-ACTO Prize Pack and $500 to spend at Walmart! – Actually – there are 2 $500 gift cards awarded to the winner – so you can shop with a friend and make the memories you can then use your Elmer’s prize pack to scrapbook about!

So, right about December I hope to be back from my trip to see Martha, revealing my newly remodeled kitchen, eating snacks and playing games with my family!

If by chance I don’t win, and you do? Please let us know all about it!
