Go Bulls!

As many of you know, I love Cake Pops!  They are delicious and fun to make.  Bakerella I am not, but I had a little fun putting together something for the Bulls playoff game tonight against the Miami Heat.  If you have never tried Cake Pops, then you must check out Bakerella's site for the recipe and for some inspiration.  They are delicious!

Couponing for Community--This Week!

As many of you already know, I am a firm believer in Giving Back.  From May 8-14 please join me and couponers all across the country by using your awesome buying skills to make a large donation to a non-profit of your choosing.  This is a weeklong event where bloggers and readers use their skills to donate as many free and inexpensive items as they can to local organizations.

Don't forget!!!!  This week is our official Couponing for Community Donation Week!!!  The USPS Stamp Out Hunger Drive is this Saturday if you wish to participate or my friend Kristen at Couponing to Disney is helping to organize a donation drive for those affected by the Tornadoes in Alabama (Go HERE for more information on how you can help and see what they are in need of). Please feel free to send me a quick message if you are looking for more ideas on where to donate!  Thanks again!
