Posted in Books, giveaways, Random tagged , , , , , at 9:32 PM by Rockin' Rita

Super excited about this giveaway! And I loved the review so I’m reblogging it.

22466429Kid Of Appetite by David Arnold
Publishing Date September 20th 2016 by Viking Books for Young Readers
Source: arc

Victor Benucci and Madeline Falco have a story to tell.
It begins with the death of Vic’s father.
It ends with the murder of Mad’s uncle.
The Hackensack Police Department would very much like to hear it.
But in order to tell their story, Vic and Mad must focus on all the chapters in between.

This is a story about:

1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.
2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.
3. One dormant submarine.
4. Two songs about flowers.
5. Being cool in the traditional sense.
6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.

How to coupon like “Krazy”

Posted in Random tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:44 PM by Rockin' Rita

‘Krazy’ coupon tips that’ll save you $100 in 15 minutes

Heather Wheeler, Joanie Demer are the brains behind

updated 9/23/2010 9:06:14 AM ET

Want to spend just 15 minutes per week and save $100 a month? Follow these four steps from Heather Wheeler and Joanie Demer.

They’re the brains behind and the new book “Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey,” which is being hailed as “the coupon bible.”

They’ll detail below both the “Krazy Way,” where you’ll have to subscribe to multiple newspapers and the “Express Way,” which will bring you savings without taking much time!

Step One: Release your inner coupon fetish
Where do you find coupons? The two main sources are the Sunday newspaper and coupons you can print from home.

The Krazy Way: Subscribe to multiple copies of the paper.

The Express Way: Print coupons! Visit and click “print coupons.” There you’ll find a huge alphabetical list of coupons to print!

Step Two: Get organized and build your coupon binder
Keep organized — you don’t want a big useless pile of coupons. If you’re saving all your Sunday newspaper coupons and printing coupons, you’re going to have a big useless pile. Find an organization method that fits your schedule.

The Krazy Way: Create a coupon binder. Organize clipped coupons in baseball card holders in a large binder. Divide them into 36 categories by grocery aisle.

The Express Way: Throw coupon inserts into a file box by date.

Step Three: Shop smart
Don’t purchase items just because you have a coupon. Only buy a product when you find a sale price and a coupon that makes the retail price acceptable. The stores no longer tell us what an item costs. Tell the stores what you’re willing to pay by purchasing only when the price is acceptable.

The Krazy Way: Compare sale prices from your weekly grocery ad to your coupons and “stack” coupons with sale prices. When the price after sale and coupon reaches at least 75 percent off retail, that’s the time to buy!

Story: Coupon clipping craze may be slowing

The Express Way: Make your grocery list and compare it to the printable coupon database. Print coupons for products already on your list. Total time is about 10 minutes.

Step Four: Build a stockpile that will put your neighbor’s to shame
When you can purchase an item for 75 percent or more off retail price, stock up! The goal is to purchase enough of the product to get you through until the next sale cycle, which is approximately three months.

The Krazy Way: Stuff your cupboards and pantry, clear space in your garage. If you have the storage space and you find a nonperishable product for a great price, purchase even more — to the tune of a year’s supply!

The Express Way: Small space? Get creative. Put products under the bed, on top of the closet and behind the TV. Still tight on space? You can still stock up on the products you use most frequently or products that are expensive. Anyone can utilize this principle within their living situation.

With these tips, you’ll be saving hundreds of dollars each year. And it should only take you a few minutes a week!

Got Ants? Here’s how to get rid of them

Posted in Random at 12:59 AM by Rockin' Rita

It’s mid-spring time again and you know what that means…warmer weather. What comes with warmer weather? All sorts of awesome insects to annoy most of us, especially…you guessed it- ANTS! If you haven’t yet, be prepared for an infestation in your home. That’s right-IN YOUR HOME!

The idea for this blog post came from personal experience over the last month as well as from my friend Di at Free Sample Momma and her recent encounter. Ant infestations are never fun especially if you have toddlers, babies, or 4-legged pets running around. I hope you find these tips and our experiences helpful. You can reply to the 2 posts here and here.

Watch What You Say

Posted in Random tagged , , , , , , at 10:05 PM by Rockin' Rita

Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. Freedom lies in being bold. It is a package deal – with it comes responsibilities and consequences.

Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they will actually look forward to the trip. It is the the art of convincing people that they know more than you do and the ability to tell a man he has an open mind when he has a hole in his head. Tact just means not saying true stuff.

Without tact you can learn nothing. Tact teaches you when to be silent. Inquirers who are always questioning never learn anything.
