Kwik Trip Milk CHEAP!!!

Many of you have heard how I have told you the bagged milk at Kwik Trip is wonderful and easy to freeze. Well! Now is your chance to try it!  If you go to Kwik Trip's website (LINK) and sign up for the Coupon Program. July's coupons include .50 cents off one bag of milk. The coupon is ONLY Good until July 7th, 2010. Last time I was in the quick trip ( remember the .69 cent eggs!) they had the bagged milk for .98 cents a bag. So, with the coupon it would be .49 cents!! Make sure you have your punch card too! Each bag you buy gets a punch and fill the card up and get another $1.00 off that bag!!

Also,have the kids join the Nature's Touch Milk Moovers Kid's Club (LINK)! Every time you or your folks buy a pint or more of Nature's Touch milk (any flavor), you'll get a Kwikery cookie, regular cake donut or bagel, FREE! When you join the club we'll send you a member's card with coupons for free milk and bakery goodies.  Fill out the application and send it in, they will send you a card and then you can get the kids freebie!

Also, July's coupons include one free slice of PIZZA! yummy!!

Time to clean out those binders!!...and other frugal notes.

It's the end of the month! Time to go through your coupons, clean out those binders and files and get ready for a new month!

Yesterday, we went to a major league baseball game. Spent $33.50 total on 4 of us. How? Well, tickets were free. Parking was $12.00.  Hot Dog Kids Meals were $4.00 each ( best deal in the ball park, you have to know where to find them) :) and 2 cotton candy at $2.75 each. I could have saved money by skipping the cotton candy. I did bring in 4 bottles of flavor water, pretzels, peanuts and some candy.

Other than that, we are having our roof fixed. It was an unplanned, unbudgetted expense ( thanks to the bad storms that came through). Thankfully, I have my emergency fund, so we can pay it without using the credit card or worrying about where the money will come from.

How are you saving money over the 4th of July? One thing I did was go to the dollar store and buy some light up wands. Last year, they were selling them for $6.00 each along the parade route. The same exact ones were at the dollar store, so I don't have 2 kids begging for those expensive things. We are keeping our 4th of July weekend as frugal as possible. They do have a carnival here in the city, but the tickets are EXPENSIVE, so I told my kids,"NO, we will go to Great America and enjoy rides all day". The kids were satisfied with that, so they are aware of it BEFORE we go to the 4th of July city event. There is still a kids tent, play sand pit and music the kids can enjoy and not focus on the ride. Also food is sold as a fund raiser for different programs in our city, so I will let the kids each pick on "snack" at the city event. And of course, the light up wands will be great at night when we are waiting to watch the fireworks.

Happy Fourth of July Everyone! Celebrate our Independence and Democracy! Enjoy the weekend!!
AND Stay Frugal!!

We can make the Kraft Homestyle Mac and Cheese for lunch, the yogart will be breakfast and snacks. The fruit will be the same; breakfast and lunch. Lunch meat and bread will be for lunch sandwiches. I didn't buy much dinner foods. We will have tacos 2 nights, but they will be chicken tacos, since we are out of ground turkey. We will also have meatless speghetti. We still have enough stockpile chicken and ham for about 2 months. So we will be eating alot of that! I am not going to write out a menu right now, because I really have to go through my stockpile. The good news is that I haven't been shopping much and so with my husband's next check, I will do a major shopping trip ( I hope!).

Happy Shopping! Stay Frugal!!

Other Free Events...

I already posted that we have many things weare going to do this summer, but when I got to talking to a friend, I was surprised by how many things people don't know about that are FREE here in Wisconsin. So, I am adding two more things we do each year and they are both free admission!

1. Henry Villas Zoo. 702 South Randall Avenue, Madison, WI 53715-1665. This family friendly zoo is located in Madison. It has free admission and parking. Beautiful Park to picnic in ( so you can save your money and not buy lunch there!) It's near the water, so it's a beautiful area! You can find out more at

2. Bay Beach. 1313 Bay Beach Road Green Bay, WI, This beautiful area has a nature center, which is free and open to the public. The kids can see animals there. Also, they have an amusment park, the old style type. Tickets are .25 cents each and most rides are 2 tickets. So, you can have some family fun without breaking the bank! They also have free movie nights!
You can find out more about the nature center here
and find out more about the amusement park here

Do you know of anything else that is free? Please feel free to post in the comments in my comment section with any other ideas!
