They sometimes go really fast and you should always look every Wednesday AM as that is when they will update it. Today they even had the local Marie Calendar's restaurant on their. Imagine, 1/2 price pie, yummy. Need I say more?
Another free resource for local discounts is http://www.ksby.com/pages/hot-deals/ it is mostly for the Marigold shopping center, but it is free!
Finally, here is another San Luis Obispo, or Central Calfirornia Coast resource. These again are a discounted certificate. http://centralcoastdeals.com/index.php/categories/restaurants
Remember too, when you are traveling do a search on the local radio and television stations, as this seems to be a nationwide trend. Promoting local businesses. Wouldn't it be far nicer to have a real vacation at a discount instead of a 'stayvacation'?
If you have some similar local resources, please share!
PS Don't forget the coupon link above, they often too have great deals and everyone can use these!

What an interesting and fulfilling trip. This was my first time to DC and it was well worth it. I got to meet people from across the US who help to advocate for the rights of people with disabilities and industry representatives as well. Here is a picture of Congresswoman Lois Capps and myself and a picture of part of the group who was in DC.
The trip was sponsored by the industry to bring in consumer advocates to help educate those on the hill about the specialized needs of complex rehab medical equipment, like electric wheelchairs. I also emphasized my personal agenda, getting the old outdated concept that Social Security uses when looking at people with disabilities, the inside the four walls concept. It is used to suppress people with disabilities and to still keep them in their homes, it is only in getting rid of this, then all people with disabilities will be able to be productive members of society to the greatest extent possible. Otherwise, Social Security and Medicare, which carries over to many private insurers as well, only look at what a person with a disability needs in getting around inside the four walls of their home. An old and very outdated concept that perpetuates stereotypes and prejudices.
All of the people that I personally visited seem to be on board with the proposals and were very supportive of people with disabilities in general. So hopefully this will be changed so that people with complex rehab equipment needs, will be able to get what they need for inside and outside of their homes.

We also did a second transaction and got two thermacare back heat wraps, 12 cans of lindsey black olives, 4 lip smackers and one m&M w/almonds all for an out of pocket cost of fourty four cents. Plus we got a print out for another five dollar bonus bucks for our next transaction. Again we used the coupons and came out ahead. Make sure to do these deals today as they expire tonight.
Not bad for using our previous extra bucks and coupons printed from the Internet, we ended up saving a total of 84.62 on the two transactions according to our two receipts. Not a bad trip!
PS They are also so nice at our local CVS and so very helpful, what great customer service!

TGI Fridays also sent an email coupon for a free entree when you buy one with two beverages. This is through their stripes program. If you have a TGIF close by or are traveling near one this is an easy one to join with tons of benefits. I get stuff from them all the time and I haven't even been to one in years.
Ben & Jerrys is having their free cone day 3-23-2010. According to the email, "It's free cone day on March 23rd at participating scoop shops from noon to 8pm." So if you have one near by, you might as well indulge, free is free. Just be aware there may be a line. ; )

We also stopped at K-mart where we were able to get the Tonka Chuck the truck for a great deal at $20 off the normal price. We had a manufacturers coupon for $10 off and the Kmart coupon for $10 off and that was a great deal. We also did two other transactions while there, one for plax and Cascade, again with the $10 off $20 purchase and the third transaction was for hair care products like pony tail holders for my older daughter and other related items. Again, we had a great cashier and had no major problems, everyone was great.
I didn't make it to Albertson's or Rite Aid but they also have some fantastic deals going on if you check out their adds and combine them with the coupons that you can print from the above coupon link.

This was fairly easy to make and yet all so delicious. It is also a great way to get the kids involved in cooking.
I just took a basic recipe and modified it a bit to fit my taste preferences and what a great outcome!
Here is my basic recipe:
2 packages of cream cheese
1 8 ounce container of sour cream
1 fresh lemon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 C. Sugar
1/2 C. Flour
1 1/2 C. Crushed Graham Crackers
1/2 C. Crushed Almonds
1/2 C. Melted Butter
1 8 ounce container of sour cream
1/4 C. Sugar
First make the crust. Take the three ingredients and mix until the melted butter is thoroughly incorporated into the mixture. Then press in a spring form pan, I used an 8" pan and almost did not have enough room. So make sure you have a good large one.
Next, place this in the refrigerator.
Then take the cheesecake ingredients and whip them together. Make sure to do this when the cream cheese is at room temperature. I took mine out about thirty minutes earlier. Then just start adding the ingredients and whip them all together.
While doing this, preheat the oven to 425 F. Pour the batter in the crust and place it in the oven for forty minutes then take the sour cream mixture and spread it over the cheesecake and cook for fifteen more minutes. Then open the oven when it is done and let it sit for another forty-five minutes. Now take it out and place it in the refrigerator. Let it chill for at least 8 hours. Enjoy!

The other great deal is the Kellogs Frosted Mini Wheats cereal that is 4 for ten dollars. Buy four and you get a five dollar Target card for your next shopping trip. Or that would get the diapers.

I have to give this store two thumbs up to for customer service. The other day I was in the store and forgot the coupon at home, I mentioned it to the cashier and she was so gracious that she let me redeem my coupon even though I did not have it in hand! So I was able to get five full size products for about $10. What a fantastic deal for such great products!
Free Piece of Pie Day at Marie Callender's Restaurant-Sunday, March 14th & Kids Eat Free on Tuesdays and Sat. at some MC
Kids also eat free every Tuesday and Saturday with the purchase of an adult entree at participating restaurants. "Kid's Menu-For our guests 12 years old and younger. Served with your choice of Sundae FUNday topped with chunks of OREO® cookies; or a slice of Apple or Chocolate Cream pie!" according to their web site.
They also have some coloring sheets to print out on their web site.
I enjoy going to our local Marie Callender's restaurant in Pismo Beach, as it is kid friendly and it also has a great ocean view. They often too have great deals on whole pies, so keep your eye out. My favorite pie is the classic cream cheese pie and the apple pie with the crumble topping. I believe they also offer great promotions on your birthday, so if you have a special occasion, let the server know and who knows what other great promotions you might get, or even another piece of pie or a great sundae.
Toys R Us is also offering a Barbie for $3. I have heard through the grapevine, that many other stores are also featuring a Barbie for $3 as well, so check it out as I think this is a very limited time promotion, that may even end tomorrow.
Mommy tips for the event:
- Make sure to feed your little one some healthy treats before the event!
- Arrive early and make sure to stay attached to your little one
- Also a good nights rest the night before or a quick refresher nap can make children happier for everyone's sake
- Another tip is to bring a pocket portable camera, a lot of times they have special characters available at these types of events and how memorable is that, a picture says a thousand words
- Make a scrapbook page that night to add to the scrapbook, nothing like getting it done fast while you still remember the particular memories
- Lastly, make sure your kids know your the one in charge and what you say goes, so if they do get a little unruly don't be afraid to go home and take care of their needs
Do you know of any other discounts on the Central Coast, or where you live? If so please share them in the comments section for the other readers.

St. Patrick?s Day is right around the corner, and it?s not the luck of the Irish that will keep the roads safe ? it?s planning now for a safe and sober way home.
Are you headed out with friends after work this Wednesday to celebrate the holiday? No? Well when you and your family are on the road headed to choir practice, a t-ball game, or coming home from school, you may be sharing the road with those returning from a fun St. Patrick?s Day event. It?s time to spread the word about the dangers of buzzed driving and to remind people that Buzzed Driving IS Drunk Driving, and the best way to stay safe is to plan ahead.
Let?s remind everyone about the importance of remembering to:
· Designate a sober driver before you leave for your event.
· Be ready to take alternate transportation such as a bus or taxi. Have the phone number of a taxi service stored in your phone before you leave for the party.
Even if you will not be celebrating this St. Patrick?s Day, keep in mind that in 2008, 1,179 people in other vehicles were killed in crashes involving alcohol-impaired drivers. And for those who don?t plan on over-indulging?a buzzed driving crash looks the same as a drunk driving crash.
Global Influence is working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Ad Council as they continue their efforts with the ?Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving? PSA campaign. Buzzed drivers drink and drive, but do not consider themselves a hazard on the roadway because they have had ?only a few? drinks. The campaign hopes to educate people that consuming even a few drinks can impair driving and that ?Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving.?
We need your help in keeping the roads safe for everyone this St. Patrick?s Day by spreading the word that buzzed driving IS drunk driving.
To learn more about the impact buzzed driving can have on a life, please watch this important video about the financial and personal repercussions of getting a DUI: http://buzzeddriving.adcouncil.org/sign.php#video
Remember: Buzzed Driving IS Drunk Driving. Plan ahead and ask your loved ones to do the same.

All you have to do is print out the application, fill it out and have a doctor sign off on it. Then send it in to them and they will contact you and provide you with an appropriate totally free phone. They have hands free phones, phones with pictures for Alzheimers, and a wide variety of others.
I have used this program myself, so I can tell you it is legitamate and super easy to do.
If you do not live in California I would suggest calling their 800# and ask about other states.

"Thanks to your pledge on GoodEggProject.org, egg farmers donated more than 12.4 million eggs to the hungry last year. That’s a lot to celebrate, so we’re cooking up some great rewards for all you "good eggs" throughout 2010.
Friday (2/5), we’re offering fans of the Incredible Edible Egg Facebook page a buy-one get-one free coupon for a dozen eggs. Get cracking and become a fan today to lock in your chance for free eggs. This exclusive Facebook fan offer will only be available to the first 30,000 egg lovers who visit our page on Friday and click on the “Free Eggs” tab to download their coupon."
More free eggs!
Here are several free meters that you can sign up for. You can also often get a free meter from your doctor's office if you just ask! They also will often offer other freebies that are given to them by the drug reps.
Another resource for free meters is the drug store. So many times they offer free meters with a rebate. If you opt to do the free with rebate, make sure you send in your rebate form. A lot of people have good intentions to complete the rebate option and often forget or do it too late. Don't be one of those consumers.
Here are a few places to get free meters, remember to also use your insurance at the pharmacy if you have it. Also make sure to have your doctor do a proper prescription for an appropriate number of strips, a good doctor will have their office advocate on your behalf to get the necessary medical supplies covered by your insurance whether it is private or government based.
Fianally, remember that a lot of companies offer freebies to people without insurance whether it be for a prescription drug or related item like diabetic supplies. Usually the company will list an 800 phone number and if you call that number you can apply right over the phone. This service is subsidized by their other sales. So if you are in need take them up on the free offers.
Here are a few links to look at to find out if you qualify for a free meter, what the heck it is always nice to also have a backup meter if you already have one. Too, remember that they are always improving these devices so try a few and see which one works best for you!

In addition a great opportunity to try this yogurt would be from January 13th through February 9th, the Safeway family of stores has a special deal where you can purchase two 4-packs of Fiber One yogurt for only $4!
I also found a printable coupon on the Fiber One Yogurt web site for my readers, here is the link, http://www.fiberone.com/Product/Yogurts.aspx. This one printed out three coupons for me all Fiber One products!
According to what I have read, "Best-selling author and food expert Lisa Lillien, AKA Hungry Girl, has given her "seal of approval" to the new Fiber One yogurt, the only leading nonfat yogurt with 50 calories and 5 grams of fiber (20 percent of the Recommended Daily Value). It is also a good source of calcium and vitamins A and D, making this a guilt-free and all-around great choice for dieters and those watching their weights. Each cup includes the creamy, delicious taste you expect from Yoplait, and you don´t have to feel guilty about enjoying it. Fiber One is available in a variety of flavors including, Strawberry, Peach, Vanilla and Key Lime Pie (see what Hungry Girl thinks about the new yogurt here:
I am looking forward to the sale at the Safeway family of stores to purchase the Peach variety of Fiber One Yogurt. That is my daughters favorite flavor. With the Fiber One Yogurt being on sale 2 for $4 that would make each package $1.25 after the coupon. What a fantastic value for such a great product that my daughter will love. Not only will I feel good feeding this to my daughter, but it will also be nutritious for her.
To enter the contest for the $50 Safeway gift card please add yourself as a follower to the Blog. This will allow me to contact you if you are the winner. To get a bonus entry put a comment on this blog post. Contest Ends Feb 14, 2010. Good luck!
