The frog has moved!!!

Hello everyone! I am so excited to announce that we have finally launched our brand new SUPER cool web site! I will no longer be updating the frog blog and will now be using our new web site to send all of my blog posts. There is an email subscriber box right on my blog page which will allow you to receive your updates right through your email account. If you wish to continue receiving updates from me, please go to and click on Rita's Blog. This will take you right to my personal blog. Don't forget to sign up for email notifications while you are there!

Also while you are there check out the site! I am teaming up with Brittany Valentine who is a gifted writer of devotionals and a menu planning expert! You can find Brittany's devotional blogs on the site under "Brittany's Blog".

Check out "SWAP central" to find a super awesome message board where you can find coupons you need, post recipes and get new recipes, ask us questions or just message your friends and other couponers! I am VERY excited about swap central and can't wait to see the conversations begin!

If you go to "Resources" you will find all the local store's coupon policies which can be very helpful to have. You can pull them up as a PDF file which you can print and take to the store with you. Also, at "resources" you will find the 2010 Coupon Insert schedule which is also a PDF file so you can print it or view it. It will tell you how many inserts will be in your paper on any given week.

The "shop" link is not active yet, but when it is, you will be able to go online and purchase my coupon workshop booklet that includes EVERYTHING you need to know to save TONS of money on your grocery bill. The booklet is over 30 pages and is jam packed with information.

Lastly, Brittany and I will be traveling to your location to host couponing/meal planning workshops. If you are interested in hosting one of these workshops, you can view our "event calendar" to find dates that are available. If your date is not listed as available, then "contact us" will take you to our personal emails and  we'll let you know if we can do your requested date. We are really excited about this opportunity and are looking forward to doing a workshop for YOU! is my dream coupon site and I'me very excited about it. I've always wanted a place I can go to do ALL of my organizing without having to type in a hundred different web addresses. If you look at the right side menu, you will find links to ALL of my favorite web sites. When you click on them, it will take you straight there, BUT the menu stays on the screen so if you want to navigate away from that one and to to another one, all you have to do is CLICK!!!

Check it out and leave me a comment on the message board (swap central) to let me know what you think. You do have to register before you can leave a message, but that is a one time thing done for security purposes. I'll see you there!!! And tell your friends!

Here is a RARE coupon!!!! For Meat!

I don't know about you all, but I love the Laura's Lean Beef that they sell at Bilo. It is with the other ground beef and has a green label on it. It has no growth hormones or antibiotics in it... Well, guess what! I was checking out the "bricks" coupons just now and found a 1.00 off coupon for it!!! It's pretty pricey, so this is a GREAT find! Now how often do you find a coupon for ground beef!!!???

Once you click on the link, you'll need to submit your name and email address near the bottom of the page. Once you do that the icon will pop up where you can print your coupon! Remember to use your back button to print it twice! Got 2 computers?? Print it 4 times!!!

coupon workshop details

I just realized that I never posted the new details for the coupon workshop on here. OOPS!
Nothing much has changed other than the date. We will be having it THIS Saturday, Feb 6, since the Lord chose to bless us with some winter weather this past weekend! All the other details are the same. It's from 9am-1pm at Westside Church in the student center. If you need to change your RSVP response, please send me an email at 


Well, I have not, up until this point done a lot with my Swagbucks account, but all that is about to change. I am a die hard fan of and wasn't real keen on the idea of using Swagbucks to shop with instead, so I signed up for the account, got my 3 swagbucks and have not used it since. Today I read an article posted by southern savers about swagbucks and decided I'd give it another try. This is what  I found out.. Swagbucks is JUST a search engine, just like google! Only with google, you don't make any money!  All you do is sign up for the account, install the toolbar at the top of your search box and anytime you do ANY kind of search, type the word or words into your swagbucks search box! That's it! I did that a little while ago and found 2 more swagbucks in SECONDS! You don't HAVE to buy anything. You just use it to search! How cool is that!

Ok, here's the best part. How many of you have old cell phones lying around?? I had 5 of them! Once you install the toolbar, click on "Ways to Earn" and then "Trade In". If you recycle your old phones with Swagbucks, you earn swagbucks for them! And THEY pay the shipping! I just did 5 phones and earned 34 swagbucks!

If you don't know why you would want swagbucks, then I'll tell you.. Because you redeem them for cool stuff! You can get gift cards, Wii fit, and a million or so other things with your swagbucks. There are many other ways to get them too and I'm currently trying to figure out all the other tricks.  If you'll notice, at the bottom of my blog, there is a box that says "swagbucks" on it. Do me a favor, would ya? If you ever need to look up anything and you happen to be on my blog, use that search box and earn me some swagbucks! Thanks! If I earn a Wii, I'll let you come over and play!
