Living Social: Half Off House Cleaning Services

I know you can clean your own house for free. You can get almost all your cleaner free or cheap with coupons, or you can make your own cleaning supplies.

However, after mopping my dining room floor this morning today’s Living Social deal looked so fun I had to post it.

If you need a little help for a special occasion, after a new baby or if you are trying to think of a great mother’s day gift you can check out today’s Living Social deal.

You can get 2.5 hours of house cleaning (for up to 3,000 square feet) for $50. It includes sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, and dusting from Becker Cleaning Services.

Has anyone ever used a cleaning service? Were you happy with the results/process?

Publix: I Went and I Want One in Knoxville

For those of you that live near a Publix this may not be headline worthy news, but I went shopping at Publix!

I am in Nashville visiting family. The cold weather has canceled a few of our plans so my sister decided to spend this afternoon grocery shopping. She stopped by to say she was on the way to Publix, did I want to go with her? Did I want to go?!

I was practically jumping up and down. Here’s why:

1. My older sister, whom I never in my wildest dreams did I think would ever use coupons, has started couponing. It was so fun to watch. It is clear she is becoming hooked.

2.All I ever hear is how amazing Publix is. I have never been and I just wanted to see for myself.

For the most part it lived up to all the hype.

The store was clean and  bright, the people were friendly.

There were fun little ads with Publix coupons in them right as you walk in. At publix you can stack store and manufacturer’s coupons. Also, this publix doubled coupons $.50 or less.

The Buy One Get One Free items.  Oh the BOGO. They were everywhere, and much to my sister’s credit she had coupons to use on most of them.

There were several blinkie machines. In fact I found one that paired with a sale got us $.49  32oz. cans to tomatoes. Not too shabby.

So now I am sitting here wondering what will it take to get a Publix to Knoxville? (No, I am not giving up my love for Kroger, I’m just saying a Publix would make my coupon  life grand.)

I was so excited to see this! EM Tanner Designs makes some of the cutest kids stuff ever. I have been  deliberating over what lunchboxes to get for some time now.

There are so many cute things to buy I could spend hours looking. So even if you don’t get in on the Eversave Deal, go check out EM Tanner Desgins. You will be glad you did!

Coupon Katie’s Calendar of Coupons and Deals

Have you noticed the tab on the top of the page that says “Coupon Calendar”?

Someone left a comment lamenting the fact that there is really nothing on it. It was true.  I admit I have fallen a little behind in updating the Coupon Calendar lately.

However, I spent a little time on it and there are now several freebies and free events listed for April. Keeping it updated has made it on my list of goals! I really hope it is a quick and easy way for you to keep up with all the great deals around Knoxville.

You can view the calendar as a day, week or month (my favorite). When you click on the scheduled event it will show you all the details- time, location etc.

If you know of anymore free happenings or deals  leave a comment or send an email I and would be happy to add it.
