Seventh Generation dish soap

Did you get yours?? I got my 4 today and only paid .94 for all them. Between Cartwheel, 2 coupons each and my employee discount, somehow they all came down to me only paying for the cereal I also got and .94 for these. Still trying to figure this one out...

Great deals this week at Target plus great coupons

Sales, coupons, and Cartwheel! Stacking up the savings with the sales ad at Target as I prepare for a long distance trip. I picked up a few snacks for the kids with the Nabisco multipack. I had a coupon for $1/1 plus Cartwheel has a 15% off offer. 
Cartwheel has 20% off the Little Debbie donuts.
Plus you can add the coupon I posted about before. 
 Of course you don't have to get the donuts with that coupon. You can get any Little Debbie snack. 
Another deal I came across that I haven't had time to verify yet, is .89 for Seventh Generation dish soap. Use the $1/1 manufactures coupon, the $1/1 Target mobile coupon (text OFFERS to 827438), and the 5% off Cartwheel offer.
There is also a .75/1 coupon for the Kleenex bundle packs in case you want to try to hit big savings on the Target bundle pack deal I posted about earlier. Just go here and you do need an account with Kimberly Clark. (Same one you use for Kelloggs, Poise, etc.) Check out the post I wrote to know how to stack the saving.
Get a $2/1 Lindor Chocolate product here.
Sorry they are just randomly put here, but matching up Cartwheel, coupons and deals has been a slow process this week for me.

Amazing Kleenex tissue bundle deal!

While working Sunday, I came across this deal without even knowing it was the sale. But buy 4 of the Kleenex 4 pack bundles and save huge! 
You could get other items instead of 4 packs of tissues.
But I chose this since we use so many and I had the coupons. 

YouTube needs help with their CC....
Thanks to Alisa for pointing it out.

Looking for Guest Posts

I have a hectic life right now. Lots going on with trying to adjust to the store I transferred to, planning an out-of-state trip next month, a huge change in my relationship status with my husband, and trying to keep up with the daily life demands that come from being a mom.
With that, I have less time to post on here. I still plan to write reviews as they come to me. I still plan to share promotions. But I want to make it more inclusive with my readers. I've done a few guest posts and even shared some with you from other blog writers. Now I am offering you the chance to use my blog to share your own posts. Finding any really good deals? Share them here! Know some great tips to help other moms? That's what I like to share. I do have a few guidelines though....

  • No foul language.
  • Keep it family-friendly.
  • Posts should be tips, deals, clearance finds, reviews, or encouragement. 
  • Anything not pre-approved by me, will be rejected. 
  • I'm a grammar Nazi. I expect you to at least use spell check, but know that I will be proof-reading the posts before they go live. 
Email me at texanmama08 at gmail dot com if you are interested in this. 

And yes, sarcasm and humor will always be approved!

March Bulu Box review

This months box had a lot more samples than the two previous boxes I've gotten.
The ad included had a scratch off for a discount towards ordering from Bulu.
The first thing I tried was Bean Fields Bean and Rice Chips. I got the ranch flavor.

They are a vegan snack, corn free, gluten free, all natural and a great source for fiber and protein. They have an interesting texture. Really love the flavoring. It's not overbearing. These chips are high in protein and fiber with less fat than leading brands. The beans used are farmed here in the United States. No sugar, gluten, dairy, peanuts, seeds  or corn. So whether you are a vegan or have peanut allergies, they make a great snack.
There is something called E-Hydrate packs that are supposed to provide natural energy. I tried using the orange flavor one but it just fizzed right out the bottle as it made contact with the water.

So the second try, I had to pour it slowly while letting it settle in between pours. It's made here in the US. On top of providing energy, it adds minerals and vitamins to your diet. They also donate 5% of their profits to benefit veterans and their families through IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America). I liked the lemon lime flavor. It does have a strong sweet taste though and feels slightly carbonated.
Then I started using these capsules that were included. Vivioptal capsules are a multivitamin and multi mineral supplement.  The good thing is, they are gluten free. The bad thing is, they have a bad smell at first with an aftertaste. 
There were a few other things in the box that I don't have a personal interest in. Not everything in every box is for everyone. But they do have some great things to try out before you buy.  

Clearance savings at Target

Did a little shopping for deals and got about $20 worth of products for only $10.66. 
Right now, all the non-edible clearance is 70% off. Candy and other edibles will be 50% off. 
I picked up some M&M's using a $1/2 bags Target coupon. These are currently half off the original price of $3.19, so $1.59. With the coupon, it brings each bag down to $1.09. 
I also grabbed a couple Lindt Hello Chocolate bars. You can print $1/1 or if you share the link to your social media sites, you can get $1.50/1 coupons
These were just a couple of the things I bought. I had other coupons for Glade candles and Easter cupcakes that I also used. Plus I used my Redcard and employee discount. When money is tight, you save where you can. Let me know what deals you are finding! 

Free Reese's chocolate!

In case you missed this, there is a promo going for free Reese's chocolates. You can use their Facebook link here or their non-Facebook link. Put in your start up for what chocolates are your favorites and then fill out the information to get a coupon for a free product.

Japan Crate subscription box review

Two things I have a passion for; all things Japanese and satisfying my sweet tooth. How better to accommodate both than with a subscription to Japan Crate?!
It is a monthly subscription box that will send you a smorgasbord of Japanese imported candies and treats to entice your taste buds as well as indulge your curiosity. I can barely contain my excitement and have been sad to see the goodies dwindling. I had a really difficult time picking what to try first.

First my kids and I dove into the Fujiya Milky Candy.
Its a semi hard candy, sorta like taffy. You have to suck on it before you begin chewing.

But it does have a milky flavor to it which is similar to sweetened condensed milk.

Then I split the Fujita Country Ma'am Vanilla.
It's a light cookie with a jelly filling and chocolate chips.

There was a parasol candy that was chocolate.

The top half tasted of strawberry. That was definitely a favorite! It's called Chocolate Umbrella.

They come in either milk or strawberry flavor.

Giant Caplico Panda is a non-frozen ice cream cone!

There's a wafer biscuit cone stuffed with chocolate cream and then topped with a layer of whipped cookies and cream foam.
The whipped chocolate and airy cream is light on your tongue!
Goes great with the wafer cone.

Look a la mode Chocolates is a pack of chocolate with 4 flavors; banana, almond, strawberry, and caramel.
The filling flavors are rich are and strong within the chocolate. Strawberry was definitely my favorite.

Fits Nightlife peach flavored gum was pretty good.

I like how they have the magnetic strips to keep the flap locked when closed.
I also love peach flavoring. So win-win. Just wish the flavor lasted longer.

My bonus item was a chocolate Super Mario Pop.

Who doesn't love Mario in detailed chocolate form?

I think the Kabaya Panda Cookie DIY kit was my favorite part of this box.

They were so much fun to make and tasty.

I saved the mold from this to make chocolate pandas with baking chocolate. Then I can embellish other things I make, like my brownies and cupcakes. You could even make them look like Mickey Mouse as that's what some people confuse them for. 

C. C. Lemon drink is like a refreshing,   light lemon soda. It's slightly carbonated. It's supposed to have 35 lemons worth of vitamin C without the super sour taste.

Glico Maccha Collon candy was like wafers with a sugary center.

Each item has a label in English that gives basic information. Nutrition and ingredients as well as where it's distributed from. There's also a list that tells you the name and a short description of each item included. Things that need instructions, don't have English versions. Personally, I like to figure it out with the pictures. It's just more fun to experiment!
This one I didn't try... Only because I read the description and saw squid on the list. 
This has been my favorite subscription box yet! Having a sweet tooth and loving all things with Japanese culture have made this an awesome experience!
