Save $20 on Fire TV Stick

Fire TV Stick

I’ve been wanting to write for ages – then I saw this deal and I simply had to share it with you – Amazon’s new Firestick Technology which is a Streaming media HDMI stick with Netflix, Amazon Prime Instant Video, music, games, and more – and will be released on November 19th, 2014.  You can pre-order it now for $19.99 ( I just did) and you’ll get a great discount because the regular price will be $39.00. It has  6x the processing power of Roku Streaming Stick so it’s fast and fluid.  (This can be a great benefit when your family is watching video’s on their computer and you can’t load your Roku!!) Check it out here.

Gilbert & Sullivan’s Comic Opera: Patience, or Bunthorne’s Bride

 (545 7th Street, SE Washington, DC 20003)

Goldstar Discount Days – Thursday July 31st- Friday August 8th, 2014

Friends – don’t miss seeing our lovely reader, Harper Denhard in this show…and you can get 50% off tickets for just $10 on Goldstar:  Check it out here.

The New York Times recently remarked that “Gilbert’s pen was rarely sharper” than when he first sketched the characters of Patience, or Bunthorne’s Bride. Lampooning England’s 19th century aesthetic movement, Patience is a comic opera that marked the sixth operatic collaboration between Gilbert and composer Sullivan when it debuted way back in 1881. Poking fun at the self-indulgent artistic output of England’s poets circa the 1870s and ’80s, this satire finds a gaggle of lovesick maidens falling for a smarmy poet, Bunthorne, who in turn finds himself smitten with a milkmaid by the name of Patience. But Patience is far more taken with cows than she is couplets, and the platoon of soldiers who have just returned home are none too happy to find their ladies — the aforementioned lovesick maidens — smitten with an artsy-fartsy fake.

(So sorry dear readers – I know I haven’t written nearly enough lately. Just been tied up!)

Birthday Club Time!

by Marlyn on June 26, 2014

Every year on my Birthday I get tons of Freebies in my in box.  You know how restaurants ask for your birthday when you sign up for their e-clubs – well this is the payoff!

All you have to do is sign up online and you’ll receive a special gift on your birthday.  Some of the birthday club coupons have restrictions like you get a freebie with a purchase, or good only on your birthday and must show ID, so be sure to read the fine-print!

Since this is my birthday week, I wanted to share my favorite birthday clubs with you. I have some new ones this year, too:

Le Madeleine sent me two coupons for signing up for their e-Club here.  I got a free pastry for my birthday and a free soup or petit salad for signing up.

Phillips Food Grocery – sent me a $1 off coupon for any Phillips product (it’s Super Doubles Week at Harris Teeter too!) Join their eclub here.

Rita’s sent me a coupon for a free Italian Ice on my birthday for signing up here.

Sephora will be sending me a beauty insider reward on my birthday for signing up here. (See Erica’s article on Beauty Rewards Here.)

There are many many more birthday clubs available.  Check out the web site for your favorite restaurants and see if they have one – it’s so much fun getting all of your freebies near your birthday!

Video Fun Day…

by Marlyn on May 29, 2014

  • Future_Children

I love young people – especially creative ones, which they all are if they just let themselves go in that direction!  Here’s an amazing short film by Emily Eaglin about Mixed Race Aggression that is on the road to Hollywood…just a few more views will take this film over the top and on the road to Campus Moviefest (CMF), the world’s largest film festival for college students

She wrote, produced, directed, filmed, edited, and acted in a 5 minute short film on racial micro-aggression. This film beat out hundreds of other submissions and is now in the final bracket for a wildcard position at Campus Moviefest next month. Emily’s film is now up against just one other film in this final home stretch! Please view email/post and share the following link on ALL your social media platforms–all over the world!

Thanks for taking the time to watch, share and invest in Emily’s very promising future! Check it out here.

Plus, there’s a really fun video on our Facebook Page here: … check out what Pharrell has to say to the Rockville High School graduates! You can also check out the entire speech on YouTube here ( start at about 3:25 for the rock stars.)

As our readers know, one of my favorite sales is the Harris Teeter Super Double Coupon Sale each month – but we didn’t have one in May, so the next one is scheduled to start on 6/4/14.  This is a great advance tip because many of this month’s printable coupons that are listed below will no longer be available to print starting on June 1, 2014 when the new printable coupons are introduced. So, we’ll have so many options for this month’s sale – woo hoo!!

Also, I learned last month that our Harris Teeter Store sent their employees to training to learn to be more flexible with manufacturer coupons.  If they don’t carry a specific product, you can now use the coupon on a similar product, AND they are very flexible about honoring competitor coupons.  I was able to use the Entertainment Book $5 Off coupon for Magruders at Harris Teeter, and a similar coupon from Shoppers.  So if you’re not sure, ask any HT employee for assistance.

We will have more information as sale information becomes available, but if you like a product, super doubles is a great deal regardless of the sale, right?

Here are some of our favorite printable coupons:
$2.00 off any Finish Power and Free™ Detergent$1.00 off one FRESH TAKE (6 oz.) & Fresh Chicken$1.00 off any one CRUNCHMASTER Crackers or Chips$1.00 off ONE Lance Bolds Cracker Sandwich, 6 pack$1.00 off Hillshire Farm American Craft™ product

For me, growing up as a swimmer, Memorial Day weekend always meant the opening of the outdoor pools.   I was on a swim team and was a lifeguard for many summers.  I still love to swim and I take Aqua Zumba year round at an indoor pool.  I just started trying Aqua YoLates, which is a combination of Pilates and Yoga in the water – very nice!! Believe it or not, Kmart has some of the cutest swimwear and they have a special this weekend.  Check it out here – Up to 50% off Swimwear for the Family PLUS Free Shipping orders $59!

Memorial Day Weekend also brings back memories of BBQ’s and long 3-day weekends spent with family and friends! (Safeway has some great deals on $5 three pound packs of ground turkey and $1.79 Heinz Ketchup in their justforU coupon links. We stocked up this morning!)

Memorial Day is also a great chance to take advantage of great sales and deals, and presents many shopportunities! My favorite this weekend is the Unique Thrift Stores 50% Sale on Sunday and Monday – can’t wait!

Here are a few other good ones: Shop the Half-yearly Sale for women & kids at NORDSTROM. Plus, get free shipping and returns on every order

And Extra 20% off Macy’s Memorial Day Sale at macys.com! Offer valid 5/21-5/26. Michael’s also had a great coupon released last week for 25% off your purchase including sale items that is good for Memorial Day Weekend. 

 

Memorial Day Weekend is a great time for events too.  One of our favorite events is Rockville’s Hometown Holidays Celebration with free local music and entertainment, kids events, and a yummy taste of Rockville.

Dancing to the Music

But this photo posted by my friend Karen just touched my soul…

Photo: Memorial Day - Remembering our Fallen Heroes and the families they leave behind.

So please spend some time in gratitude this Memorial Day weekend and remember those who made all of the wonderful things in your life possible! If you can – attend one of the Memorial Day Parades and show your support!!
