$10 Caribou Coffee Gift Card for Just $5!


Wahoo!  I'm super excited about this deal!!  Today, Thursday, August 26th, only - you can get a $10 Caribou Coffee gift card for only $5!  I do love me some coffee.  Just go to Plum District (it's a Groupon-like site) ~ the process is really easy and your gift card will be mailed within 2 weeks.



Since I know that if you're reading this blog, you must like to read, so I wanted to share one of my favorite websites with you!

Do you have any used books lying around? Ones you've already enjoyed, but you're never going to read again? I did, and I finally found a great way to share them with other people!  It's called PaperbackSwap.com and it's really fun.

Let me tell you how it works -- because it is so easy! I listed 10 books on the site and I got 2 free book credits to get started. So you can order 2 books right away - free of charge -- and have them mailed directly to you! No strings attached. No gimmicks. No spam mail. Nothing. You just have to love reading books. 

When another member selects one of my books that I have listed, I mail it to them. Yes, I pay for the postage. But then I get another book credit and I can select a book that I want. So another Club Member returns the favor and mails me one of his or her books free of charge. For every book I mail out, I get another book in return - a true shared system!  As long as the book you are requesting is "worth" the postage cost that you spend to send out one of your books, it's a win-win!

When someone requests one of your books, all you have to do is print two pieces of regular paper from your printer which includes the mailing address and the recommended postage. Apply the postage, and drop it in the mail. I am familiar with printing postage at home, so it's really easy to do.

I will admit that it's not ideal if you are only requesting new releases, as those have LONG waiting lists and you'll likely be waiting years to get it.  But if you're looking for an older book or something not as mainstream, this may just work well for you!

I strongly encourage you to check this out. If you do sign up, please use the following link: 

If you use the link above to join, I'll get a free book when you post your first ten books (and you'll still get free books for posting them!) 

Let me know if you try it out!

Good Earth Review & Giveaway!

I was recently provided the opportunity to try one of the new Good Earth dry dinner kits, thanks to a generous offer from Good Earth & MyBlogSpark.  Not only did they provide a Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit, but they also sent two sets of bamboo flatware, two bamboo dishes, a bamboo utility board and a 100% recyclable grocery tote!

We received the package awhile ago, but we finally had a chance to try it tonight.  It was very simple to do and both my hubby and I participated in the preparation of the dinner.  My hubby prepared the chicken and got it cooking, and then I took over with the sauce and making the pasta.  It was very easy to do and probably took about 20 minutes total (if that).

While our 2-year-old didn't care too much for the dish, we thought it was pretty good.  The chicken turned out really tender and moist.  It was a good meal, but we thought it could use a bit more seasoning. Maybe some salt & pepper or a bit of garlic would do this dish good.  It also has lots of healthy things like whole grain pasta and whole wheat flour, which admittedly aren't things we usually eat, so that may be part of it too.  It was a well-rounded dish that paired nicely with a salad and bread.

(Here's a picture of the dinner cooking!  Can you see the steam?  Yummy.)

The good news is that Good Earth & MyBlogSpark also gave me another Good Earth gift pack to give away to my loyal readers!  :)  This gift pack (pictured below) includes the dinner kit, flatware, dishes, cutting board & reusable bag   All you have to do is e-mail me at funfindsforyou@gmail.com, or comment on this post with your name, e-mail address and what your favorite kind of pasta dish is!  Comments will be taken until 8:00 pm on Tuesday, August 10 when a random winner will be chosen.  One entry per person, please!  :)

Good luck!
