$0.75 off any Earthbound Organic item

Print this week's Earthbound Farms coupon for $0.75 off any organic product here.  It will look like the coupon is only for Earthbound Farms carrots, but once it prints, you'll see that the coupon is good for any Earthbound Farm item.

Speaking of carrots, Target's regular price for a pound of Earthbound Farm organic carrots for $1.09.  Use this $0.75 coupon, and you'll get them for $0.34.  (My RedCard drops it to $0.32.) I buy these as often as I can, peel them, freeze them and use them in soups.  Try getting organic carrots for $0.34/lb. anywhere else!

Target also has Earthbound Farm baby carrots for $2.09.  If you have a smartphone, text the word SPRING to 827-438 and you'll receive a mobile store coupon for $1.00 off any vegetable item at Target, which you can stack with this $0.75 coupon and pay $0.34 for a 1 lb. bag of organic baby carrots.

These coupons have been coming up about once a week, and I'll happily print them each time they show.   Just another way to buy organic produce without breaking the bank.

$0.50 off Vidalia onions

Print this rare coupon for $0.50 off any 5 lb.bag or loose Vidalia onions here.  It uses a hinky coupon printer, and I had to try twice to get it printed, but have a little patience and it will print.  Be sure and use this at a supermarket that doubles coupons (like King Soopers in Denver) if you can.

Dream Believe Achieve bracelet $7.99 with free shipping

PRICE DROP: Nostalgia Electrics items are now $7.99 with free shipping

I posted about these two fun Nostalgia Electrics items back here, two weeks ago, when they were $9.99?  Well, guess what?  They both just dropped down to $7.99 with free shipping at Best Buy.

I'm so pleased with the quality of the Nostalgia Electrics popcorn maker set that we bought for $9.99, back here that I am seriously tempted to buy these sets.  I love the fact that they all come with storage tins, so I can clean up and put away the whole thing after I'm done with it; it makes the mess very containable and when you're short on counter space, that's a major plus.

This Nostalgia Electrics Carnival Snacks-on-a-Stick Maker is now $9.99  $7.99 with free shipping.  Hello homemade corn dogs!  It got 4.6 out of 5 stars over 18 reviews.  (The same item costs $19.99 on Amazon.)
  • Makes 6 snacks at one time.
  • Nonstick coating, helps prevent stuck-on food for easy cleanup.
  • Kit with bamboo sticks and stand.
  • Storage tin helps keep the kit tidy when not in use.

This Nostalgia Electrics Doughnut Bakery Party Kit is now $9.99 $7.99 with free shipping.  If you've got kids, this looks like it could be a great family activity.  And even if you don't have kids, this looks like a great frugal way to make homemade (pareve!) desserts.  This item got 3.9 out of 5 stars over 21 reviews.   (Just the doughnut maker, without the stand, sprinker shaker, or storage tin, cost $16.56 with shipping on Amazon.)
  • Makes up to 6 doughnuts in approximately 5 minutes, for fast, delicious results.
  • Nonstick coating ensures easy removal.
  • Storage tin.

How to add an under-layer of savings to every purchase: buy gift cards for vendors that you use often at a discount through Raise.com, PLUS new users get $5 off their first $75 gift cards purchase

Buying gift cards through Raise and using them for regular shopping is a smart, low-impact, low-effort way to save money.  Think about it.  If you're buying a jacket at Lands' End, why not pay for your purchase with a $60 gift card that cost you $52?   If you're getting lingerie at Victoria's Secret, why not pay for it with a $35 gift card that cost you $31?  It's such a no-brainer to me.  I've been using discounted gift cards for years.  I recently became an affiliate of Raise.com, and I'm really impressed with their higher-than-other-sites discounts and high level of customer service.  Buying gift cards at a discount is adding an under-layer of money saving to every purchase.

Right now, new users of Raise.com can get $5 off their first $75 gift card purchase, when you click through this link and enter promo code RAISE75AF at checkout.  That's like getting an additional 15% off your purchase before you even buy anything, on top of the regular Raise gift card discounts.  The $75 minimum doesn't have to be on one gift card; it can be spread over several gift cards in one purchase.

I'm not a new user, but my husband is.  He just bought a $40.53 Petsmart gift card for $34.45 and a $50.00 Starbucks gift card for $41.25. With the additional $5.00 new user discount, he just got $90.53 worth of gift cards at vendors that we use very frequently for only $70.70.  That a 22% discount right out of the gate, before we use any promo codes or coupons at Petsmart and Starbucks.

(And don't forget that if' you've got gift cards from stores that you never frequent, you can also sell them through Raise.  You'll lose a little money on the transaction, but better to have the cash in your pocket than to be dragging around a gift card that you'll never use.  We unloaded a few gift cards at non-kosher establishments that we had received through work this way, and are going to use the cash to treat ourselves to a fabulously expensive kosher dinner the next time we're in New York.)

Calphalon Tri-Ply 13-piece Cookware Set for $299 PLUS two free bonuses, through 4/29/13.

I actually own the Calphalon 13-piece Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Cookware Set.  I got it after several frustrating years of dealing with various other kinds of cheapola pots and pans, and may I just say this:  I consider it to be the Rolls Royce of pot sets. As silly as that may sound, I've been through Cuisinart, KitchenAid, and (horrors) Farberware sets and others. I've seen it all.  There are some that are good.  But the Calphalon Tri-Ply set is The Best. 

It cleans up beautifully.  It goes right into your dishwasher and occasionally needs a little post-wash touching-up with BarKeepers Friend. I keep my cookware set out on a pot rack, and it gleams.  It cooks food wonderfully.  The core is aluminum, which heats up quickly and evenly, and the outer two layers are both stainless, which doesn't react with food.  The pots are constructed from all metal and heat-resistant glass covers, so they can even go into the oven (up to 450 degrees).  The handles are soldered on (not screwed on) and the pots are guaranteed for life
  • Set includes:
    • 8" Omelette Pan
    • 10" Omelette Pan
    • 12" Omelette Pan
    • 1 1/2 qt. Sauce Pan & Cover
    • 2 1/2 qt. Sauce Pan & Cover
    • 3 qt. Chef's Pan & Cover
    • 3 qt. Sauté Pan & Cover
    • 6 qt. Stock Pot & Cover
  • Tri-ply stainless combines the beauty of stainless steel with the superior performance of aluminum. Classically styled with a polished, stainless steel exterior and a satin finished interior, Calphalon Tri-Ply Stainless Steel cookware is designed with three layers to ensure even, consistent heating.
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Induction capable
  • Oven & broiler safe
  • Stay-cool handles
But along with this high-end set comes a high-end pricetag.  Amazon currently has it for $388.00.  Bed Bath & Beyond has got it for $399 or $319 after the 20% off coupon. 

So you get the 13-piece Calphalon Tri-Ply Cookware Set, the 7-piece Kitchen Utensils with storage crock set, and the 12" Calphalon Unison Pan (value is $399 + $55 + $185 =  $639) for $299.   Which, IMHO, is amazing. 

And truthfully, the Calphalon Tri-Ply set is so worth the money.  I add to the set gradually when I see a special or sale on Tri-Ply individual pieces.  I've never had a set of pots this good, and I don't hanker for any other set.  I truly believe that using this set has made me a much better cook.

14 kt gold disc initial pendant for $99.99 with free shipping

Duragold has got this delicate 14 kt. gold disc initial pendant on an 18" 14 kt. gold chain for $99.99 with free shipping on Amazon. If you're wondering how they can possibly sell this so inexpensively with the price of gold soaring these days, fyi, Duragold is Amazon's own proprietary brand of gold jewelry.  They eliminate the vendor middleman, and they are able to keep their prices on real gold jewelry very low. Plus you get the Amazon name and the reliability/credibility that comes with it, along with your purchase. This jewelry item received 4.3 out of 5 stars over 30 customer reviews.  Please keep in mind that this pendant is small (.64" x .5").

I think this would make an awesome Mother's Day gift, but if you're not sure, no worries, because returns are free. All initials are available, same $99.99 price with free shipping.
