Weetabix Review

When it comes to cereal I would always go for the sugar coated ones, as I get older I realize that they honestly don’t have much of a health value to them at all! Now, I can’t say that I cut them from my diet completely but I have started buying healthier ones with less sugar added to them. Which is why I am very happy to tell you about Weetabix cereal!

I was very impressed with the fact that this product is low in sodium with only 2 grams of sugar per 2 biscuits. I tried mine with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of sugar and was very impressed with the taste of it! Something I like to do when I receive products to review, is allow family members to test it as well, as a means of multiple opinions. I can honestly say my Dad is a picky eater, especially if it’s healthy! So I was beyond surprised when he told me “It was really good with blueberries”. Not only did my Dad like it, my 3 year old was stealing bites from my bowl 🙂  I also love the fact that Weetabix is made with 100% Canadian wheat, Go Canada!

You can find lots more information about this awesome breakfast product called Weetabix here:

 If you are looking for something more healthy in your diet I definitely recommend this product!

  • We washed it out.
  • Adjusted the little red caps
  • Measured and added them to each tier
  • We Rinsed off the seeds
  • Added our water just above the red cap in the first tier
  • Watched with our Son as the water drained into each of the different tiers (just like in science class) He loved it.
  • Then we set them where there is sunlight, away from my 3 year old (giggles)
And that’s it. Pretty simple huh?
Now please follow me over the next 10 days as I keep you up-to-date with the progress of our little bean sprouts…

Tips on “How to Begin Couponing”

I often get asked “Well how do I start Couponing??” So I have put together a list and some tips to try and make it as easy as possible for everyone. 🙂 Please take the time after you read it, to leave a comment about your thoughts on it and if there’s anything you would add to it? Thanks for reading!!!

First I would go to the stores you shop at (and even ones you don’t) that have groceries, cleaners etc, and walk up and down every isle to check for “tear pad” Coupons. These are Coupons found displayed in front of items on the shelves at the store, They are meant so you can take a few, and leave some for others as well. 🙂
Other places you can find coupons in the store, are on Displays in the isles, at the cash register in those “take me magazines”, and even the ones who are giving out Samples to try sometimes have coupons to giveaway 🙂 Once you start looking for them, you will find them! *Take some of each, even if you do not plan to use them. Sometime in the future you may want to trade them for some coupons that are of use to you..I will explain that more later on!!! …So, pretty simple so far? 🙂

Next, you will need:

  • 1 Zippered Binder, 1-2 Inches should be good for now,
  • A few packages of hockey card inserts found at the dollarstore or walmart (this is where you are going to put your coupons)
  • A highlighter (So you can highlight the expiry date on each coupon)
  • Scissors (You will need these later to cut coupons you receive by mail)
  • A Divider (This is so you can divide you binder into 2 sections.*After you get home and you have all of your coupons highlighted and your binder assembled, you are ready to start organizing the coupons into the inserts. This is how I file my coupons. Everyone is different and will have different ways that will best suit them, so this is for an example only. I have my way to file the coupons because I have tried many different things before and this is the only thing that works for me. In sections: FOOD and OTHER. Each of these 2 categories have different sub-categories such as: Dairy, Meats, Snacks, Freezer, Cleaners, Men/Women Products etc…
 

Now you can go Online and look on these great sites for coupons. Simply sign up with your name and mailing info (on most) and you some will mail you coupons, others you will have to print.

After your coupons are ordered, wait for them to come in, cut the out and file them right away if not you WILL fall behind. Please trust me on that one hehe… TIP: watch that you don’t cut off the expiry date or bar code, as it makes the coupon invalid.

Check the sales weekly. Every Thursday we normally get ours. Match up items on sale with the coupons you have (eventually you will get used to and remember the kinds of coupons you have)

Another thing to look out are In-Store specials. Each store is different. Check the clearance shelves/section as this is how you will pay next to nothing for stuff 🙂 You gotta take the time to go up and down every isle as you never know what you will find that you have a coupon for!!!

Try googling “Canadian Coupon Sites” to see what comes up. Do a lot of reading. It takes time, but the more You do it and play around, the more you will learn!!

Learn the Coupon Policies for the stores you shop at. It can be as simple as an email to them, a phone call or a trip to the store and ask a manager. 🙂 Don’t be shy to ask for a copy.

And of course don’t forget about SCOP (Scanning Code Of Practice). You can read more about that here: http://wp.me/p3CCuE-Mv

 

If you can think of others, please let me know and I will add them :)Thanks!!!

 

HAPPY COUPONING!!!

International Delight Iced Coffee Review from #BzzAgent

I was recently chosen as a part of Bzzagent to rate and review International Delight’s Iced Coffee.

I love the fact that I can go to the store and purchase International Delight Iced Coffee for the same price I would pay for a large one at a restaurant(no names) and get so much more for my money without sacrificing its great taste. They are all so great tasting its hard to pick a favorite. I first tried the Mocha and was instantly in love. Its thick, rich, and just how I like it. I am going to purchase a tub of whip cream as I think that would be that perfect topping for it 🙂 . The vanilla is delicious also, this is one drink that you can add your favorite fruits to, and even turn it into a smoothie..Very good…And last but not least the Caramel Macchiato, this is like an Ice Capp from Tims. Its nice and rich, creamy and delicious. Couldn’t ask for any better.

 

They are definitely products I will be adding to my shopping cart this summer. It makes the PERFECT drink for those hot days when nothing is quenching your thrust. I like to add a lot of ice, and serve it really cold. I promise this will be a great purchase. If you like iced coffee, then this truly is the way to go. You won’t get any better.!!!Give it a shot, you have nothing to loose!

Baby Gourmet Products

Baby Gourmet has a fruit & vegetable puree product line with some amazing mixtures and flavors. They are made without fillers, thickeners, preservatives, added sugar and salt. If you would like to find out the whole story as to who founded this wonderful baby food and how she came about it, you can check outBaby Gourmet’s Website ..

 

 

 

 

These pouches are great to pack in a lunch bag and take on-the-go with you. They are very convenient and are practically mess-free (unless you have a little mess maker like myself hehe). It’s easy to squeeze it out and you only use the quantity needed at any time. They have some great new flavors designed to increase vegetable and fruit intake as well as something that tickles their taste buds. Here are the ones I got to review 🙂

 

-Banana, Apple & Kale

-Cherry Apple Blossom

-Banana, Apple & Beet Berry

-Minty Pears, Apples & Peas

-Banana, Apple, Fig, Oatmeal & Greek Yogurt

-Fruity Carrot & Greek Yogurt Smoothie

 

 

Now my son is 3 and I didn’t realize at the time that there was an age for them, but I gave them to him anyways and he loved them. I was very surprised, as they are fruits mixed with veggies. He’s sort of a picky eater, but Baby Gourmet managed to create such a wonderful and healthy product that he will actually eat, I am so impressed. You are a hero in my books 🙂

 

 

I love that they are organic and good for you. What more can a Mom ask for? So I want to personally thank you Jennifer Carlson for creating this wonderful life saver! Its definitely a product that I will be buying for future children 😉 or even as a part of a baby shower gift basket 🙂 . They are safe, completely pureed, and most importantly, they are Tasty. Which plays a huge part in children wanting to eat properly (foods that are good for them).At first, I was a little skeptical of the plastic packaging it came in but was soon relieved to find that it is BPA free!!

 

 

I am quite impressed by the healthy and inventive foods that come from Baby Gourmet! and would highly recommend them to all Moms and dads….Baby Gourmet organic baby food is available at Wal-Mart stores and other major retailers across Canada. The Baby Gourmet store locator will help you find a retailer near you!

Smart Ones Frozen Gourmet Dinners

Slow Roasted Turkey Breast with Potatoes

     This was the one I got to test out. (Turkey is my favorite) so its no surprise that I picked this one out at the grocery store 😀 I want to start off by saying that the turkey tasted like it had been cooking in the oven all day. It was so tender & delicious. I honestly didn’t know that it was by Weight Watchers until I was finished and going to recycle the packaging. They range for about $3.00 each but also come on sale from time to time. This is alot cheaper then going out and buying a greasy meal at some fast food restaurant and its so much more healthier for you.

 

Now for those of you who have the same worries as I do when I see a little frozen dinner like this, is that I am still going to be hungry after eating all of it. Well I made mine and made up a little plate of cucumbers and tomatoes to add to the side. I can truly say that I was left satisfied after eating. It wasn’t the normal uncomfortable bloated feeling I get. This was the first thing I noticed when I was done. Its great 🙂

 

The potatoes were a little runny but nothing serious. I added a little salt and pepper (personal taste) to mine and mixed in some of the delicious gravy that comes with the turkey. Perfect combo!. I don’t think you could have made a better dish. Great job guys!!! Check out more info about this dish HERE

*Chicken Parmesan* {Seasoned chicken breast and spaghetti with marinara sauce topped with cheese} = YUMMY 🙂

 

This one my son got the pleasure of testing out for supper. I of course had a bite of it because I was very curious to see how it tasted. I must say that it is almost as good as my own homemade spaghetti sauce. It tastes great and is great for people who are a little picky when it comes to veggies, there are some tomatoes and the rest is perfectly seasoned pasta sauce. The chicken is so tender, fresh and that also is seasoned just right. I think the only thing I would add to this little dish next time, would be some fried mushrooms to go on top of this delish piece of chicken. And let me tell you, that when it comes to eating chicken, well like I said in my other review, I simply have a hard time eating meat from a factory but this, nothing can beat this. I would love to fill my freezer with these quick, go to meals. Perfect for those hot summer days when you wan’t a nice homecooked meal but you don’t actually want to cook it 🙂 You’ll want to reach for a SmartOnes Frozen Dinners

 

 

 

So I served this meal to my son Riley with a home made biscuit and a nice cold glass of milk. He ate every single bite of his supper and wasn’t asking me every 10 minutes afterwards for snacks and saying he’s hungry. It really does fill you up unlike most frozen dinners. Judging by the emptiness of his plate, I think its safe to say that he enjoyed every bite of it 🙂 And momma was happy too because he didn’t leave a big mess behind him!!!! Score for SmartOnes 😛 I even started making a list of the different kinds that I have tried and loved so I will know which ones to stock up on next times there is a sale!!!

Salisbury Steak

 

This one my hubby tested out but of course I had to try a little taste so I could write a review on it. :). The meat tasted absolutely great. He couldn’t believe how tender it was, melt in your mouth and seasoned just perfectly. Almost like he cooked it himself, {Which is great for something that was stored in my freezer.. Now I am noticing this with their meats in these dishes, is that they taste so fresh, not like a machine made it. They are all so perfect and delicious. I am the type who is faint hearted and sometimes have a really hard tome eating meats in general, but even worst is the ones from a factory!, But eating this dinner, I didn’t even have to worry about it. It truly was so yummy. I trust Smart Ones 100% as my go-to frozen meal, hands down!

 

I cannot believe how great the Vegetables were in it. They were so fresh, tender and lightly seasoned to perfection of course. And the gravy just tied it all together. I think this dish would also be great with from fried mushrooms on top of the steak! Yummy.. I am actually getting hungry writing this review!! 😛

 

One thing I will say is that they won’t let you down!!!.You gotta try these for yourselves, because you don’t know what your missing out on!! 😉 They have a whole variety of different meals from breakfast to supper and even desserts!! You are sure to find one you love. Find out more info on this dinner HERE such as the nutritional value!

Spark Play Review

I first off want to say a huge Thank You to Kelsey Ramsden, the founder of SparkPlay,{also named Top Canadian Mom Entrepreneur} for the opportunity to review the May subscription box from SparkPlay!  


I was absolutely amazed at the science behind this imaginative and educational product! It not only allowed me to spend quality time with my son while sparking his imagination, it also allowed me to teach him about creatures/landscapes and so much more at the same time! Not only is it great for spending quality time with your child/children, while creating memories that they’ll cherish for life, it’s also great for those that have hectic work schedules and are either exhausted or just don’t have much of an imagination when it comes to fun activities for kids, such as myself! I really enjoyed spending the rainy days playing “bugs” rather than watching television or being bored, I made a cute little “cave” for my little bug to live in, we had hours of fun 🙂 I love the fact that this kit allows my son and I to do something other than playing the same old cars and trucks! Don’t get me wrong, I love playing cars with my son but after awhile it becomes repetitive and it’s nice to switch things up every once in a while!


This product has also earned the PTPA Seal of approval (Parent Tested Parent Approved) which sets my mind at ease knowing that it is safe for my child, not to mention extremely durable! This is most defenitely a product I would recommend to parents, grandparents, playschools, daycares and so many more!

Biore Acne Clearing Scrub

I want to start this review off by saying a huge Thank-You to BIORE for making such a really great product. I am VERY picky when it comes to putting creams and face washes on my sensitive skin, but I had the opportunity to try this face scrub for the first time and I was beyond impressed with it. This is one of the absolute best scrubs I have ever tried.

You only need a small pea sized amount and that is more then enough to lather your face. Which for me is Awesome because that means it will last me a while, saving me money. And people who know me, know I love saving money. These bottles sell for about $6 – $7 …If you would like to know where you can buy them in your area, here’s a list of Stores .

Now at first I didn’t know this, because its not written anywhere on the bottle, but as you are washing your face, you get this really nice tingling sensation. It feels almost like little bubbles scrubbing my face. I really liked that about it because I know I am getting a deep down clean. It doesn’t have an oily feel to it, nor does it leave an oily feeling on my face. Biore’s scrub smells so good, its a nice refreshing scent of orange/manderin that lasts long after you’ve dried your face. Another great feature about this product is that it leaves your face so smooth and soft. I find it so much easier to put on my foundation after using this, I was never this fortunate before 🙂 . Even my hubby uses it to wash his face, (don’t tell him I told you that either hehe). He says he loves it as well!
 
I just love this scrub and can’t wait for a sale so I can stock up. Once you try it, I am sure you will have the same thoughts as me. “You never wanna leave the house without washing your face with it” !!! It will help you fight and prevent breakouts,. It won’t dry out or cause your skin to break out. I honestly Highly Recommend this face wash. Its even perfect for stocking stuffers, (even if Christmas is still far away) or you could purchase other Biore products and make up a little “Gift Basket” for someone 🙂

My Homemade Baby Wipes

My son always has skin irritation that is caused from the perfumes in certain products. Such as laundry soap, body wash, creams, and wipes..One day we ran out of wipes, and I had no way to get to the grocery store, so I decided to make my own. This is what I did, and have been doing ever since. I honestly wish I would of come up with this when he was just a tiny baby. Saves us a BUNCH of money, as you can get the paper towels on sale at least once a month at Shoppers for $1.99 for 8 rolls…Which if you broke it down, 1 roll of PT would make a box of wipes, for a lot cheaper..Make as many as you like…Its simple and quick!!!

Here’s the simple instructions..

 

  • Take a roll of paper towel and break off each little square of it
  • Then just fold the paper towels in halfs..
  • Put all the pieces of Paper Towel you just folded and add it to one of the containers of wipes you may have hanging around, if not just get an air tight container
  • Add some water and any scent you would like (optional) to the container in layers…I didn’t measure how much water I put in, but the paper towel absorbs the water eventually…..

And there you have it. Wipes with absolutely NO chemicals or harsh perfumes etc….#GoGreen 🙂
It will save you SO much money, and keep those baby bum’s rash free 🙂

What do you think about this? Would you try it? I would LOVE to hear some feedback!!!
Please comment below and feel free to share with all your friends and family..As it could save them alot of money in the long run 😀 or you can Tweet your answer to @FrugalCouponMum

Dr. Beckmann’s Colour and Dirt Collector Review

Well, I was given the awesome opportunity to Test and write a Review for the new Dr. Beckmann’s Colour & Dirt Collector laundry sheets. I thought this was great, because first off I don’t like doing laundry so I never separate my clothes by colors, I just gather them up, toss some soap in and let the machine do the rest. After trying these sheets in a washer full of mixed colored clothes, you can really see how much dirt and running color it has picked up.

I honestly believe that these little miracle sheets can prolong the life and color of your clothes. They are so simple to use, just toss them in your laundry and take it out when you are done drying the clothes. You will instantly be able to see a different. I had the chance to compare 2 sheets together.The one on the right is un-use, while you can see that the left one is dirtier looking. This is proof they work! 🙂

I would definitely recommend Dr. Beckmann’s Colour & Dirt Collector sheets to my friends and family. Its just 1 extra and simple task to do, to ensure you get the most out of your clothes..

Daddy Scrubs (Hubby)

I was recently given the opportunity to review a wonderful product for dads known as “Daddy Scrubs“, which are scrubs for the expectant “Daddy” to wear in the delivery room 🙂 I have to admit, I don’t care much for hospital scrubs, they aren’t all that comfy, paper thin and are difficult to tie! Most of all Ugly LOL..

Daddy Scrubs are nothing like “hospital scrubs”, these are so comfortable that I now have a new pair of pajamas and they keep me nice & toasty (essential to a Scorpio ) I absolutely love the cute little poem that was written inside the shirt as well as the logos printed along the side of the pants! I was also very impressed with the strength of the material and the way the draw strings have been overlapped, making them easier to tie. Great design!

My sister in law is a nurse, so I verified that these are acceptable in the delivery room but they do have a strict dress code for surgery (c-section), so keep that in mind if you’re asked to put on a hospital gown! All-in-all, I was very impressed with this product and think that the quality is well worth the money and recommend it as a great gift for a “Father to Be” or any Father for that matter, not only do they have scrubs, they also have hats/hoodies and more 🙂

Mrs Dash ~ Lemon Pepper Seasoning Blend

I want to first off thank Mrs Dash for making such a great product. To start off, I want you to know that I am a huge fan of Salt, which I know isn’t any good for me, so I was very excited when the opportunity arose to do a review of Mrs.Dash ~ A Salt Substitute!

With the hubby being a diabetic with kidney issues I’ve had to cut down a lot on the salt that I use in my cooking and this was a wonderful way of doing so! Not only is Mrs.Dash sodium free it also has no MSG, which is another added bonus.

I went out and bought the Mrs. Dash® Lemon Pepper Seasoning Blend . I was absolutely amazed at how great it tasted with fish. As every food lover knows, lemon is a great seasoning fish (this would be the first thing I would say to try it with, you will fall in love). I was also surprised at how awesome my mashed potatoes and deviled eggs turned out using this product, the subtle hint of garden veggies (onion,celery…) mixed with the tangyness of the lemon added the perfect kick to these 2 delicious dishes as well as many many more I’ve made!

My husband has told me that it is very good with steaks (as I don’t eat much steak) and I have tried it with other meats as well. I would definitely recommend trying this product if you haven’t already, your guaranteed to love it. With such a variety of seasonings, you will never want to buy salt again after try these awesome products!!! Pictures are to come 😀 !!!

John Frieda Luxurious Volume

I had the awesome opportunity to review these 2 great products. I have been using them for about a month now and absolutely love how it makes my hair feel. Now to be completely honest with you, I have really thin hair and it is as straight as a board,I don’t need to brush it because it falls into place all the time.

I can honestly say that I have never had a Shampoo or Conditioner physically give volume to my hair. Well this one has!!! I am always playing with and running my fingers through.Also instead of always keeping it tied up in a ponytail because I can’t really do anything with it, ( that just goes to show the “lack of Volume” in my hair) I actually leave it down now 🙂 My hair really feels much thicker then it is and definitely alot fuller now since using John Frieda Luxurious Volume and of course it definitely has more bounce to it.

After I use this great duo, my hair is left feeling Extremely clean & smelling amazing! Makes me feel like I just got home from  the Hair Salon. The only thing I find with the shampoo is that is doesn’t foam up in my hair as most shampoos would. Its just a personal preference that’s all! The most important thing is it Cleans my hair and it gives it Volume.

The Conditioner makes your hair so unbelievably soft, like after you use that tube of conditioner when you dye your hair 🙂 I normally always use conditioner when washing my hair, as I find most shampoos strip my hair of it natural oils, leaving it really dry and unmanageable. Not John Frieda Luxurious Volume though 🙂
I even put the shampoo to the test alone and was quite impressed! Now I can tell you how it would make someone else’s hair feel like, but for those with Thin, Volume-less hair like mine, this is definitely a product that I would recommend to you. I am sure you will love it just as much as I did. Get ready for some Volume 😀 .. (Its times like this I wish I had taken a picture of my boring hair before & after, so you can see the difference!)

Okay so being a Couponer and someone who likes saving money, you can imagine that I have a bit of a hair time paying the $8.99 for 1 shampoo (without a sale or a coupon) hehe but honestly with results like this, you won’t mind treating yourself to this kind of treat every few months. It’s completely cheaper then buying it from the Salon (or booking an appointment with them + a tip), but you really do get the same results. Of course it does come on sale 🙂 so keep your eyes peeled the next time you go shopping and really think about giving it a try, You won’t regret it :}

Zevia Beverages Review




Zevia is a low calorie, no sugar added, all natural Stevia sweetened soda beverage. Now as a regular Pop drinker, you can’t fool me when it comes to taste. I like my Pepsi and Coke products, so when I was told about this Soda Substitute (as I call it) I was a little skeptical. I was very fortunate enough to have had a try at the Canuck Pack,.There was the 11 following flavors and this is what I thought about them!

  • Grape… This was a good one. I liked it similar taste to the grape soda you buy in the stores. My son does not drink Pop (he is 3) but my niece is a huge lover of any kind of “Junk” food and I let her try this one. She loved it. So I would say it is Kid-Approved 🙂 This would be a great one to buy for birthday parties… It can even be use in Recipes, such as this one.. Click Here
  • Black Cherry… I can’t say too much about this one, because I am absolutely not a fan of any kin of cherry type cola. Its just not my thing, its a personal taste, you might try it and love it. Find out here about it HERE

  • Gingerale: This is the one I first tried, as gingerale is what I’d normally be drinking. I was pleasantly surprised with it’s similar great taste. It still has that same great fizz and bubbles as any soda 🙂 Find out more on this flavor HERE
  • Caffeine Free Cola… Taste almost the same as the Zevia Cola. Which taste good. Its not exactly the same taste as the brand name stuff, but its still great in its own unique way. Perfect for those avoiding caffeine and also another great one for kids!. Find out more HERE

  • Orange... I really enjoyed this one. Its was a nice orange drink, very similar to brand name sodas. I love also love the shiny cans they all come in. Makes it alot more appealing when your drinking it. You can find out more info on this flavor HERE
  • Lemon Lime Twist…. I love it. Its even better then the brand names. So much flavor. It’s like BAM in your mouth, citrus flavor 🙂 Find out more HERE

  • Ginger Rootbeer …. To be honest I was never a huge drinker of gingerale. Once in awhile I would order one if we went to A&W to eat, but other then that, its not my thing. Zevia made it taste great somehow and that’s all that’s important. You really need to try this for yourself. I know people who like eat those “Rootbeer Floats” you can try their receipe. HERE
  • Cola….Now when I drink this, it reminds me of brand name diet cola, just slightly more watery. In general I like it, but its not one of my favs. You can find more info on this flavor HERE
  • Cherry Cola…. Again Im not a fan of the cherry and cola but the hubby likes them, so they must be good? 🙂 Find out more about this flavor HERE

  • Cream Soda …I can honestly say that neither my hubby nor I liked the taste of this flavor. You might, but I can’t even describe it. I know that it is way off of actual cream soda.. Sorry guys 😦 I wouldn’t try again… You can read more about this flavor HERE
  • Dr Zevia : Check out more info on this flavor and see this great Gluten Free recipe HERE

If for some reason I was told that I wasn’t able to drink regular pop again, I would be just fine because I now have the piece of mind of knowing I have other options that are just as great and even Better for me. There is so much less sugar in a can of Zevia compared to even a juice box. With a wide variety of flavors, you are sure to find something to your liking. This really is a product you want you fill your fridge and stockpile up with.

Its great for people on special diets, diabetics or other anyone who just wants to consume healthier products. You can find them in the organic/health section.
