Homemade Yogurt in a Crockpot

So many people make their own yogurt, and swear by it. It can be cheaper to make your own than buy it and at the same time you know exactly what you are putting into it.

Here is a Crockpot Yogurt Recipe:

1/2 gallon milk
1/2 cup yogurt with live and active cultures

Set crock-pot on low, pour in milk and let cook for 2 hours 30 minutes. After time is up turn crockpot off and unplug it. Let it sit for 3 hours. After 3 hours remove 1 cup of the warmed milk and mix thoroughly with 1/2 cup plain yogurt. Add mixture to crockpot. Wrap crockpot in 1 or 2 bath towels and leave for 8 hours (up to 12 works too). Alternatively, you can set your oven to 100, turn it off, then place the whole crockpot inside the oven

Let me know if you have ever made homemade yogurt!

Thanks  Kitchen Cheat Sheet

Drugstore Shopping 101: CVS

I have been getting questions about how exactly to shop at CVS and save money, I have written out exactly how to Shop at CVS and what you need to know. Drugstore Shopping 101:

The first thing that you need to have when CVS shopping is their Extra Care Card. You can sign up online or in the store. This is a rewards card, it gives you the sale prices and also gives you rewards such as Extra Care Bucks-which are basically like cash you can use on  your next purchase. Having the Extra Care Card will also get you on CVS email list- they occasionally send coupons for $4 off a $20 purchase or more. These CVS coupons can be used along with Manufacturer coupons to maximize savings.

Now a little bit more about Extra Care Bucks-ECBs for short. CVS has many sales each week that give you ECB when you buy certain products. These ECBs act like cash back because they can be used on a future purchase. They are printed at the bottom of your receipt, so always check! There are usually limits to exactly how many ECBs you can get back per item you buy. For example if there was Floss on sale for $2 and you would get $2ECB back, there might be a limit of 2, meaning if you buy 3 packs of Floss you will only get $4ECBs back not $6. Also every 3 months you will get 2% of your total purchase cost back in the form of ECBs!

Part of Playing the "Drugstore game" at CVS is knowing how to take your ECBs and use them for your next trip to lower your total out of pocket expense. This is called "Rolling your ECB". For example, if you got your $4ECBs for buying 2 packs of Floss last week, you could use that $4ECB like cash this week, meaning you will not have to pay $4 out of pocket. Plus if you use that $4 to buy an item that is part of the weekly ECB deal, then you will be getting the item possibly for free and making more ECB. This is how I keep my out of pocket costs so low.

You can also "Stack Coupons" this means you can use on CVS store coupon and one Manufacturers coupon on the same product. This helps maximize savings as well. Always be sure to scan your Extra Care Card at the Coupon Machine in the front of your store-never know what you might get!

You can also buy a "Green Bag Tag" which is a 99cent tag that is sold at the register. This tag can be scanned and for every 4 scans you will get $1ECB ( you need to bring your own bag for this)

CVS is a great store for stocking up on Healthy and Beauty products very inexpensively. You can check out my CVS shopping Trips and coupon match ups here!

Swagbucks- a Reminder

I wanted to repost this, because it is a great way to earn great prizes like giftcards... so far this year I have cashed in $15 worth of gift cards.

Just a reminder, use Swagbucks! It is a google search engine and you get "paid" to search.

For every few internet searches you do, you win Swagbucks which can be cashed in for prizes:

450 swagbucks will get you $5 giftcode to this will take roughly a month or less depending on how often you search, that could mean $60 each year for searching the internet!

If you haven't yet, sign up here, and make swagbucks your homepage so you remember to use it to search!

Trading Cradles: A new way to buy and sell baby items

I have a great new site to tell you about: Trading Cradles.

What exactly is Trading Cradles? It is a site where you can Sell or Buy gently used (or sometimes new) baby items. You can find them locally or have items shipped to you.

When you Sell Items:

  • You can list as many items as you want for free
  • There are no fees when you make a sale
  • No registration or login needed to list items

When you Buy Items:
  • No Paypal or other banking services needed
  • Find new and gently used items up to 60% off
  • All listings are approved by the Parental Team  
  • There are no fees when you purchase items

There are several categories of items for you to look under (or post an ad under)
  • Baby gear
  • Books/DVDs/Music
  • Bath and Potty
  • Toddler & Kids
  • Carseats
  • Cribs
  • Clothing & Shoes
  • Feeding and nursing
  • Strollers
  • Toys & Games
  • Halloween Costumes

I think this site is a great way to get rid of unwanted baby items while making money. Or you can buy baby items for much less than you would pay for them in store.

Plus if you were thinking about having a yard sale, this site is more likely to give you a greater return than a yard sale, and without all the work.

Let me know if you plan on using this site and what you think about it!

Throwing a BBQ on a budget!

Since summer is upon us I thought it was the perfect time to write a post about throwing a summer time BBQ party.

Throwing a party can get costly-quickly. I have some great tips to save you money, without it looking like you did.

  • This might seem obvious, but use coupons for the products you will need for the party.
    • Chips, Pretzels & Dip coupons are always available
    • Paper plates, napkins and plastic silverware can be bought in bulk to save a lot of money
    • Hot dog coupons are constantly available and on sale- sometimes for free
    • Brownie,Cake and Cookie mixes can be bought for next to nothing with coupons
    • Many Fruits and Veggies are in season during the summer-cuts down on the cost
    • Pasta Salads are a tasty way to stretch a buck
      • I make Orzo Salad(Orzo pasta, pesto, cherry tomatoes-fast&easy)
    • Buy bulk ground beef and make burgers yourself- much cheaper than premade burgers
    • Buy a frozen bag of Chicken from a Wholesale store- also much cheaper
      • Defrost for 2 days in the fridge with a marinade/bbq sauce
    • Buy drinks in bulk at Wholesale stores-bottled water, cans of soda, and beer to save money
    • Have 2-3 Signature cocktails- that way you do not have to have a fully stocked bar
    • Skirt Steak and London Broil are inexpensive cuts of steak that are perfect for grilling

I would love to hear what kind of BBQ money saving tips or recipes you have
