melicity said... favorite money saving tip is pretty old-school. I just clip coupons from the Sunday paper and try to match them with sales from the grocery ads. :) Congrats on the freebies! It's always nice to get something other than bills in the mail! :)

Johnsonville Sausage Meatballs

So, you may have been noticing the fuzzy picture of the meatballs on my blog lately....with no words? Well, I'm a member of SheKnows and was selected to try Johnsonville Italian Sausage and share some coupons with you all. 

I'm going to admit something here. I don't normally buy Italian sausage. I don't normally cook with it. I love the stuff, but my husband can't eat it. He has a very delicate stomach and any thing that has spices can give him a terrible time. But, free is free, right? So, I signed up and was selected. I made the Johnsonville Italian Sausage Meatballs. You can click the link for their recipe. I did alter it for my husband's sake. I replaced a little over half of the sausage with ground beef to cut down on the spices. It was still delicious! I have also taken to adding a little Worcestershire sauce to my spaghetti sauce which really makes it rich and meatier.... I don't know why, but Worcestershire makes every thing better! 
So, here's your chance to score some coupons! Leave a comment and I will pick two people to get $1.50 off Johnsonville Italian Sausage coupons! Be sure that I have a way of contacting you if you win!

I love freebies!

Doesn't everyone? My mailbox was full of freebies today and I want to share. Look at the loot! I got a box of Quaker Oat Squares, Lanican Chafing Lotion, a coupon for a free Lean Cuisine and.....If you are a Blogger and haven't signed up with, you should. I just got 3 coupons for free Johnsonville sausage to try, recipes, a coupon for a free jar of Rinaldi tomato sauce an 5 $1.50 off coupons to share. Sadly, the closest place to buy the pasta sauce is four hours away! So, I'll send the pasta sauce coupon and a $1.50 off sausage coupon to one lucky blog reader who leaves me a comment about their favorite money savings tip. The contest ends Friday! And will be selected by a random number generator. Good luck!
