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. ; )

HULU, CBS, NBC, ABC, and their are a ton of others that offer free full legnth TV shows and even some free movies. Just remember that you will be a day or two behind the people watching the shows on the regular TV. Not a bad trade off to save $70 a month or $840 a year. Just think if we get truly board we can always get some of those free red box rentals, I see those all the time too on the web.

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.
Remember too that a lot of the deals reset on Sunday, so get in on them tommorrow. Also, make sure to check out the other entries and enter our latest contest. See below for more informaiton.

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. Wait though, add the 1.50 coupon for the cereal when you buy two and if you have two of these coupons, then the cereal is fifty cents a box.
Both of these deals can be seen on the back page of their weekly store flyer.

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.
