Immaculate Baking’s Gluten Free Cookies & Savings!

Recently, I told you about the delicious Immaculate Baking brownies we made. I had received a few sample boxes in the mail from General Mills. I had to write once more to tell you about their gluten-free cookie mix and several coupons available right now.

My family is not gluten-free but we were attending a party with several people who are so we tried this product out to bring along:


And, yes, they were just as good as they look! They were easy to make and I’m so thrilled with the quality ingredients- simple, as if I made it from scratch.

Here’s how they came out. Gooey and fudgy and everyone loved them!


I’d like to add a few boxes of these to my pantry and right now there are several great ways to save:

New Giveaway: Dial Coconut Water with Mango Body Wash


Recently I received a bottle of Dial’s new Coconut Water with Refreshing Mango Body Wash to try out. It. smells. awesome.

What a fun scent for the shower with “hints of green coconut and tropical mango.” This body wash is designed to make your skin feel clean, healthy and hydrated.

We love this new scent. It’s refreshing yet light enough to prevent you for smelling like perfume afterwards.

Would you like to try it for FREE? Leave a comment below telling me whether or not you have tried this new Dial Body Wash scent and I will be randomly selecting one person to win a coupon for a FREE BOTTLE.

Winner will be selected on 8/23 and notified via email. Good luck!

Best Places to Shop for Back to School Supplies


I’ve been scoping out where to buy back to school supplies for the best prices and I have come up with 4 stores where you can get some great deals. Read on!


Probably your most obvious place since office/school supplies are their speciality. This store has HOT deals every week before school starts (.50 cent composition books and .25 cent rulers??) AND they offer coupons. How do you get the coupons? Visit their website, scroll down and click on “Deals” to sign up for their emails. You’ll find a link in their emails to printable coupons, which change every few weeks. *NEW*- Staples will also price match other stores during the back to school season AND give you an additional 10% off the price!

Staples Price Match


Another favorite not just because they also have hot weekly deals but they also have great printable coupons. Go HERE to find back to school printable coupons such as these:

And did you catch their coupon for $5 off $25 of back to school supplies in their ad this week?



Yes, Walmart has low prices to start with but they also have two awesome ways to save even more:

  1. They price match– and, technically, you don’t even need to bring the ad in! They will price match the in-store price of the same item found elsewhere! (Want those .50 cent composition books from Staples but don’t want to drive there? Get them at Walmart!) Read the details HERE.
  2. Use Savings Catcher-- their latest way to price match after you shop. Buy your supplies at Walmart, enter your receipt number HERE and Walmart will search all local ads for a lower price and give you the difference back on a gift card! (This works for other items you buy there, too!) Definitely worth trying out.

Oh, and one more tidbit I learned: Walmart accepts competitor coupons! Print that $2 off Crayola products coupon from Target’s website and Walmart will accept it. Read details HERE.


Price Chopper

Don’t overlook the grocery store for deals on school supplies. Check out the office supply area next time you food shop for a few hot deals on some items your child may need for school- sometimes as low as 75% off! Here’s a sample from today:

Immaculate Baking Company Product Review & Deal

I was excited to receive these four Immaculate Baking Company products in the mail to try out and share my opinion on:


These are right up my alley! If you’re not familiar with Immaculate Baking, they are boxed mixes (cake, cookies, brownies), dough, biscuits, rolls and more that are made with simple, quality ingredients and they taste amazing! (Note: Though I received these products for free, the opinions in this post are all my own!)

Here are some of the things I like about them. The ingredients:

And what they don’t contain:

We immediately tried out the brownie mix. It was simple to make and only required melted butter and 2 eggs. I modified it slightly to reduce the fat and calories- instead of one stick of melted butter I used half butter and half applesauce. I also removed the yolks from both eggs since I use jumbo size eggs rather than large. The changes made no difference in taste. These were so rich and chocolatey! They are really good. Check out how moist (oh, and they are loaded with mini chocolate chips!):

Though I mostly bake from scratch, these are great box mixes to have on hand. They aren’t cheap but right now you can find a good deal at Target. This week, Immaculate Baking Company box mixes such as cookies are on sale for $4.50 a box. Like Immaculate Baking on Facebook to print a coupon for $1 off one product (print two!) and pick up a box or two for $3.50 each.

These products are also sold at ShopRite (they carry a few products including the ready to bake cookie dough!), The Fresh Market and Big Y. Check out all their products HERE and enjoy- we did!
