Visa and Ebates in the Mail

…y done? I don’t care what form it comes in, I’m not complaining. I hope you’ve signed up for Ebates and are getting this money for your normal online shopping. If you haven’t registered with Ebates before, you can go here to sign up (takes just seconds) and you will receive a $5 bonus (at your first purchase). It’s very easy, too. You can start shopping through the Ebates site, or if you start shopping on a website…

New Ebates Card Option!

…’t find anything like these around town for less that $29.99 each, so they were a good deal. And the I got Ebates credit for them. Sweet. So, I was happy to see in the last email that Ebates is offering a VISA debit card option instead of a mailed check (you can also choose a paypal option). It’s fine with me because I don’t have to use a stamp to mail in the check to my bank (we hardly ever drive there!), and I can keep the car…

Ebates and Lilla Rose on Black Friday

black friday sale

…you’re doing the same, I want to share with you a couple of savings tips: 1. The first is to sign up for Ebates (if you haven’t already, you can sign up here) and most importantly – remember to use it! I’m kicking myself for an order I placed last week for Christmas items that I forgot to go through Ebates first – ugh. But here’s the thing about Ebates: This is the time of the year that I do most of my online…

Ways To Save (Or Rather Earn): Ebates

It’s been awhile since I’ve mentioned Ebates- almost exactly a year, in fact. That would be because I don’t do a lot of shopping- online or not. Um, yeah…that would be why I’m writing a frugal lifestyle blog. Do you think thrift stores will be added any time soon? *smile* For those who don’t know, Ebates pays you cash when you shop online and go through their site to the shop you want. Each shop gives a diff…

Have You Tried Ebates Yet?

Ebates is a rebate program for online shopping. You sign up with them and then start your shopping through their site if the store you’re interested in ordering from is a part of their program. I signed up for Ebates a few months ago even though I don’t do a lot of web shopping. I think it was because I got a $5 bonus on my first order (which I think was an All You mag. subscription for all the coupons!) and I thought, well, it’…

November Notes: Menu Plan, Holiday Traditions & More


…17;s easy to use Ebates: shop online and add to the store’s cart like normal, but before checking out, go to the Ebates home page, find the store, and click the shop button. You’re then taken back to the site – and your cart is still ready to go, but now you’re going to earn 2-6% back on those items. It’s that easy. Of course you can start at Ebates, find a store, and then start shopping, I just usually am already at an online shop. During the ho…

Chalkboard Label Jars – A Five Minute, Three Dollar Update

chalkboard label jars

…hese jars that have sat here looking like this for about, oh…8 years. And all of a sudden I remembered the labels. Isn’t it funny why sometimes a thought comes to you out of the blue? I mean, I walk by these jars multiple times every day on the way to my workroom and not once in the last month has the thought occurred to me that I could use my $3 chalkboard labels on them. Anyway, about five minutes later, the jars looked like this:…

Thrifted Chalkboard Napkin Rings

Chalk Napkin Rings from Thrift Store Finds Make a Great Gift! An Oregon Cottage

…s and tied them and the marker up with an gold-orange ribbon. Add simple diy napkins and chalk to your rings and label one of the rings as an example. Of course, you don’t have to give them away at all if you don’t want to! I love how the painted rings work as place cards or for seasonal sayings, and even as a way to be able to label family member’s napkins when reusing them for a few meals instead of purchasing paper napkins….

Roasted Tomato Sauce {with Vegetables}

Roasted Tomato Sauce

When I’ve got tomatoes coming out of my ears and they are in buckets and bowls all over my kitchen, people will invariably ask when they see them, “what are you going to do with all those tomatoes?” Um, let’s see: Addictive Tomato Chutney, Dried Tomatoes, Salsa, pizza/seasoned sauce, Tomato & Feta Salad, Zucchini, Corn & Tomato Saute…well, the list could go on and on. The most important w…

How To Roast And Freeze Beets


For some reason beets seem to be a pretty divisive vegetable- you either like them or you think they taste like “dirt.” Personally, I don’t get it. I mean, we can buy beet sugar for pete’s sake. But I’m the lone beet-liker (beet-liker? Do you think this phrase will catch on?) in my family. The kids won’t touch them and Brian merely puts up with them. So I don’t serve them often and I…
