A Review- "My Grocery List" A Fun Learning Game!


I am always looking for new games to purchase.  We enjoy family game nights at home and I use all of our games at work.  When I was offered the chance to review this fun game, called "My Grocery List" by Marina Games I was excited. The Mommy and The Speech Therapist in me saw the potential this game could have for both fun at home and fun at work.  The product did not disappoint. 


The Game Materials are high quality and are much better than materials used by most of the big industry leaders.  Marina Games has built this game to last!  The game arrives in a sturdy and colorful cardboard box.  Inside you will find 5 Shopping List Cards, 5 Shopping Basket Cards and 30 Grocery Item Cards.  Each Player chooses a basket and list.  The 30 cards are shuffled and spread face down on the table to create a hide and seek game.  Players take turns to see if they can find an item on their list to add to their basket.  The first player to collect all 6 items on their list is the winner.  That is the easy way to play.

Other Ideas:
  • Place the baskets out on the table and work as a team to sort the groceries into categories.  (Meat Veggies , Fruit, Treats Etc.)
  • Use The Grocery Item cards to play a description game.  Each player selects a card and describes the item to other players.  The first person to "Name That Food" adds the item to their basket.  The person who gets the most wins.

Other Ways I Used The Game

  •  If you work with head injured or stroke patients this game is a must have!  It is study.  The game has just enough amount of print on the cards.  The grocery lists are great for targeting recall, attention, and naming skills.  It is not too juvenile in appearance to turn adults off.  I have found that playing this game and using the game kit materials aids in recall, memory and it stirs up great conversation. 
I give this game 5/5 stars!  Marina Games offers many new games that are fun across the lifespan.  Thank you Marina Games for sending me "My Grocery List" to review and keep.  It will be put to good use!

Shutterfly Fun!

This weekend I am hosting a Shutterfly House Party. Today's post will be all about that and all about sharing family photos without breaking the bank!

Some Ideas on Taking The Perfect Family Photo Yourself:
* Think about the backdrop. You will never be able to take "the perfect" family photo with "uncle Jim" dancing in the background (same goes for the rented port-a-let or the pork cooker at the family reunion). Think of natural and neutral. Trees, Tall Grass, or carefully chosen buildings make great backdrops for perfect pictures.
* Think about coordinating outfits. I'm not advocating for everyone to wear their favorite luau wear from this years Hawaii vacation, but everyone in the same color palate screams "We tried to look our best".

Here are my favorite Shutterfly Easy Links For The Season:

Christmas Cards

Holiday Cards

Photo Gifts

Photo Books

Shutterdly has an excellent resource that will help you take the best family photos possible this year.  CLICK HERE to visit the Shutterfly Family Photo Days website.  You will find lots of  information about the Family Photo Day initiative.

Introducing Xia-Xia

Meet my personal favorite Xia-Xia.  What is a Xia-Xia? The most perfect answer to the never ending query "Mom can I have a pet?".  Xia-Xia are Hermit Crabs.  They were created by Cepia, LLC (the master mind behind ZhuZhu Pets® and DaGeDar™) and I think they are destined to be at the top of many holiday wish lists.

A Little Bit More About Xia-Xia:
From a far away land where the Carnivale runs all day, Xia-Xia are crazy crustaceans, who love to dance and play. Costumed in wild and wacky shell fashions, Xia-Xia love to change their shells for their festivities. Press their claw and the parade begins; Xia-Xia have a wacky Xia-Xia shuffle that is tons of fun to watch.


These new colorful, collectible creatures combine the loveable charm of a real hermit crab but add a twist of imagination. Each Xia-Xia comes with a candy colored shell in which kids can fi­nd a little friend hidden inside. Additional shells can be purchased so children can style their Xia-Xia in their favorite fashions. For an added bonus, each additional shell contains two little friends. Xia-Xia have colorful playsets, bringing alive a world of color, magic, and imagination for kids to enjoy!

What Did The Kids Think?
  • They all loved the packaging! 
  • Emma played with one for three hours Friday night and brought Crabbie to bed with her.  She played for two hours on Saturday Morning and partied with her friends for almost 3 hours.  She took her crab and the playscapes with to share on another playdate. 
  • Her crab has survived! And she keeps telling me how beautiful Crabbie is. 
  • All of the kids were easily entertained for hours at our Xia-Xia playdate.  No one pouted, tattled, or had a melt down.  Everyone was tired and slept well (most with their new Xia-Xia pal!)
What Did The Moms Think About Xia-Xia?
  • We all loved the fact that we could relax, chit-chat, and enjoy the play date.  The toys did the entertaining! Three Cheers for Xia-Xia!!
  • We all loved the boutique/handbag packaging!  Very cool!
  • They are just adorable and we all agree just looking at them made us smile.
  • Our only complaint is that a few of them needed minor surgery (large front claw popped off of two of them a time or two).  They did snap back together fairly easily and all of them continue to tolerate lots of play time.
  • The Play Sets have been very durable and they are easy to assemble.  
  • Baby Claire was entertained watching the big kids play with their crabs, extra shells and tiny creatures! 


I have a lot more to share about Xia-Xia, but for tonight I will end with a contest!  One lucky reader will win one Xia-Xia and one Accessory Pack (extra shell with two creatures).  I will select a random winner Monday October 24th at noon!  Good Luck!!

Tiny Prints- A Good Option for Holiday Cards- A Review

Birth Announcements, Graduation Announcements, Fathers Day Cards, Baby Shower Invitations, & More from Tiny Prints


I love Tiny Prints and have ordered several times from them in the past.  Their new line of holiday cards was recently unveiled and I am having a hard time narrowing down the choices.  CLICK HERE to explore the latest selections in the Tiny Prints 2011 Holiday collection. Right now they are offering a 15% discount until 10/18 with use of special offer code : 15fall

How Will You Display Your Holiday Cards?
  I am going to try something new this year.  I am attaching strings of beaded garland (looks like Christmas tree lights) to the door of my coat closet.  I plan on attaching cards to the garland with festive mini clothes pins that I found in the $1 bins at Michael's.  I have hope that it will turn out well and that the cards will stay where I put them.  If not I am not afraid to break out the duct tape.  Do you think it will work? Any tips to making this project a success from the get go?

I love unique photo cards on nice paper.  Tiny Prints makes this easy for me to achieve.  I love their rounded edge and accordion cards!

 Candy Cane Square Christmas Cards

Last Week Fed-Ex delivered a lovely Renuzit® Fresh Accents Blogger

freshener so I could review them. However, all of the opinions

Alive, Well, and Blogging Again

Well the whole Price Chopper fiasco- aka- no more double coupons- put a crimp in my couponing.  It's taken lots of tangible reinforcement to motivate me to shop at Walmart (ack).  In the process of learning a whole new system of shopping I found Hannaford again.  I know it sounds like a religious conversion, but I really found a whole new Zen like shopping experience there.  I have a good deal post for the week going up in a bit, but first I figured we would get the ball rolling with a give-a-way!  Whats up for grabs? A $25 Sam's Club Gift card, courtesy of My Blog Spark.  Fed Ex delivered mine today and I am more than happy to share that Sam's  Club is celebrating back to school with a kicked up "Box Tops For Education Program".  I'll share more after my shopping trip tomorrow, but in the mean time- please enter for your chance to win a $25 shopping spree.

I'll pick a winner Tuesday 8/9 @ 9am- Good Luck!

Chopping Chopper Out OF My Savings Equasion

When I first started blogging I was known as the NYChopperShopper, but as things grew and traffic increased I worried about getting a nice cease and desist letter for copyright infringement.  Thus The Cadyville Coupon Clipper was born. 

Price Chopper is a beautiful store to shop in and over the past two years I have been able to donate almost $10000 worth of goods purchased at Price Chopper to friends, relatives, neighbors, and community agencies.  Did I pay that much out of pocket- oh no!  I used my brain power and the purchase power of coupon take advantage of sales and promotions offered by Price Chopper.  I have gladly offered FREE community workshops on how to maximize use of coupons and store promotions. 

Between now and 7/10 I will continue to share deals  Price Chopper, but then they will be demoted.  They are making a move that will impact every coupon clipper in VT, NH, and Norther NY.  Price Chopper has defended their double coupon policies in these territories by saying they are needed in rural, isolated areas"in the past.  Now they no loner feel that our demographic is anything special. I will stockpile until midnight on 7/9, but after that I will start to focus on Hannaford, Walmart, and Grand Union.  Now is the time to share your thoughts with Price Chopper. Please drop them a line or fill out a comment card. 

Back In The Saddle

Summer session will be over tomorrow! Woo Hoo!  This year's class was truly a joy to work with and mentor, but as always, a three credit master's level class packed into 4 works is over the top!  Today I will kick my deal blogging back into high gear.  Welcome and welcome summer!

Rite Aid Update- New Coupon Policy

CLICK HERE to print your very own copy!


Rite Aid has just updated their policy and it includes one MAJOR change!

They will no longer allow us to use a BOGO coupon with a BOGO store promotion.
They will allow us to use a $1 or cents off coupon paired with a BOGO coupon or a BOGO promotion.

This is a stinky change, but overall I feel they have been reducing the possible opportunities to pair coupons and promotions by running opposite sale/coupon schedules.

Remember Me? Haha- Happy Memorial Day!

Wow- May and June are always crazy around here.  The past week as been rather interesting.  My 4 year old is now upset saying we need a new pug and solo pug is enjoying life as top dog too much to consider another one.  So today we are keeping busy with gardening and coupon sorting.  Stay tuned over the next month for several series I have schedules.
  • Staycation in Northern NY, Lake Champlain Region, and Adirondacks
  • Being a Frugalvore in The Champlain Valley
  • Who Are The Farmers In Your neighborhood?
Between now and 6/27 I am swamped with summer session lectures, after that it will be back to my regularly scheduled coupon/sales match ups.  In the mean time here are some of my favorite savings blogs that do a great job of sharing all of the deals each week:
They will hook you up with weekly shopping lists and the like.

Staycation- Lake Champlain & Adirondacks on a dime!

Staycation
The thought of buying airline tickets, driving long distances, or spending massive amounts of cash on a vacation is simply not an option for many families this year.  Vacation should be a time to relax, destress and restore your spirit.  Pain at the pumps or to the pocket takes all of the fun out of Vacation.

Lumber Jills Benefit and Let's Plan a Ladies Night Out to Laugh!



The Lumber Jill's are holding a fundraiser this Saturday 5/21 here in Plattsburgh.  Right now there is a contest for 5 free tickets.  Who wants in?  Check out the Facebook EXDRAGAGANZA page here

Then Visit Haus of Starr and Lumber Jills on Facebook.  Become a fan to show your support.  Then look for a comment left by me (Carrie Coty).  Please leave a comment under my wall message.  Will gladly bring 5 coupon clippers with me (and spring for my own ticket)!  I need an evening of good friends, good food, good wine, and a ton of laughs.  We just might all have to break out the Stride Underpants for this one!!

Summer Roadtrips & Twizzlers






My mother loves Twizzlers and I can recall many fine family trips to Fort William Henry in Lake George NY that involved lots of Twizzlers and Miracle Whip.  I have lots of fond memories of family trips to Lake George, but these days its more of a shopping adventure than a family vacation destination (that we enjoy).  Last summer we trekked to Old Forge NY and honestly it was exceptional bang for the buck.  It's on the to do list for this summer. 
This Year Twizzlers will certainly be one of the no mess summer snacks that join us on our family jaunts.  Emma will be thrilled and I will be happy that there is no gigantic disaster mess to clean up in the car.

Where will you take Twizzlers this year?
Statue of Liberty?
Abroad?
Check out Twizzlers online Road Trip suggestions.  I am blogging about twizzlers and summer road trips today and entering a contest for a Twizzlers Landmark Summer promotion prize pack as a member of the Mom Bloggers Club.  CLICK HERE to visit Twizzlers today!


Here's some inspiration found in the Twizzler's info sheet I found in my email:
According to family travel expert Emily Kaufman, “The Travel Mom,” families are starting to think past the backyard “staycation” and are rediscovering the freedom of the open road. Kaufman shares the following tips for a fun and safe family road trip:








■Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers

Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy before snacking on them!

■Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare.

■Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops and bring along Twizzlers Candy or Twizzlers Nibs Candy – they are easy to share and don’t melt, making them the perfect car ride treat.

My Blog, My Birthday, My BFF

I feel like Frederica on Blues Clues/Elmo- the one who yells "It's my birthday."  I had high hopes of collecting my free birthday sub at Jreks, but there is about a snowballs chance in Hell at this point.  I don't exactly know when I started to really dislike my birthday, but I think it was somewhere in our infertility journey.  Something about mother's day and my birthday so close together made for a fairly traumatic week.  Add my forgetful husband into the mix and I think the day has become a self fulfilling prophecy so to speak.  I have visions of the Extreme Couponing episode with the crazy twins (the pair that had the gazillion packs of diapers) raking in the free birthday loot. I want the birthday freebies, but instead I am very content to be awake and putting up enough fuss to keep nurses hopping in the same spot I took my first breath in.  This year Randy gave me a wonderful gift and I think this is a new chapter in the "embrace your birthday" saga.  He has been working towards the goal of weight loss surgery for about a year and 5/10 was the day of the big event.  In true Coty fashion (at least the Cadyville Coty's) there were of course complications.  Do you expect anything else?  12 hours ago he was awake and can recall in vivid detail being on and off of the ventilator.  The goal of all of this was to extend his expiration date and with that decision we could have very well met a very different outcome yesterday/today.  My father always said I would have made a fantastic Dictator.  After today I agree.  If you hear some commotion today it will just be heads rolling here at Adirondack Medical Center.  So this morning I am dispensing advice and thanking God for the blessings we have.  The greatest gift you could give me this year is to pay it forward and live today to the fullest.
  • Do not take one second for granted- blink of an eye and the decks are totally stacked in the opposite direction.
  • Thank your support staff.  Administration (doctors) deserve lots of credit, but the Support Staff (Nurses, Respiratory Therapists, etc.) are the ones who are going to kill you quickly.  We can train monkeys to fly aircraft, but LPN, RN, SLP, OT, PT, RD, RT, MD and DO after a person's name do not equate to competence or experience.  I know my attitude sucks, but I have just witnessed the best patient care and the worst in the span of half a day.
  • Advocate for someone!  Try to make an hour better for someone who really needs it.
  • Be a squeaky wheel- we're the only ones who get the grease!
Thank you for all of the prayers sent our way today.  Please keep sending them.  At this point I am itching for discharge as soon as possible.  To anyone who knows my "mineral oil is a super mouth care option" story- this saga totally tops that one.  I have tried to keep everyone in the loop but there are never enough waking hours to call everyone.  Enjoy the sun.  I am fully expecting my short term memory to max out at any moment- the post it note pile is growing rapidly. 

To the love of my life - forever mine- that's all I need to know! (Cue the Cheesy Kenny Chesney song!). I will never, ever moan and groan about hating my birthday again!!!

Free/Cheap Weekly Roundup

I am moving to a new format for the next few weeks.  I am gearing up for Summer Session lecture and playing nurse maid to my DH.  1 littleish/big laparoscopy is akin to castration and crush injury to a man.  Women try to push a baby out for hours, have ER C-Sections, and run laps around the unit 3 hours later.  We feed everyone, including the relatives that move in for a few weeks, we cook and clean.  I digress....

Alive and Well (With a full Well)

As I type this, I am chuckling as  I recall my favorite scene in The Great Outdoors.  The scene where John Candy meets the gent that has been struck 66 times by lightening.  Long Story that involves a sump pump, 2 massive storms and more "spring cleaning" in our basement.  I can clearly remember being awake very early on the day Diana and Charles married.  Visions of my mom in a tragic red bathrobe haunt me (love you mom).  It is now 3:26am and I am sitting here watching the royal wedding hoopla and I am totally sucked into it.  Check back throughout the day for deals and freebies on this super fun Friday.

Planning For Christmas


I know it is April.  Tax day is almost here and like it or not, Christmas is coming!  I start planning and shopping on 12/26.  Last year I was VERY creative after having unexpected surgery with a crazy long recovery time (thus a long time without a paycheck).  I was really thankful for the things I bought ahead.  Today I am going to share some of my favorite strategies for earning free gift cards and scoring fantastic deals to build your holiday stock pile. 

1.  Swag Bucks (CLICK HERE to join- I will get referral credit).
If you are surfing the Internet then you need to start earning reward credits.  Swagbucks offers a Google powered search engine. They also offer reward points for online shopping.  Like just about everything they collect consumer data. They randomly add reward points to you account for using their toolbar.  Rewards for online shopping are fixed and retailer specific.  On Friday they up the ante and offer Mega rewards.  You can use the points to acquire all kinds of merchandise and gift cards.  The best use of points (in my humble opinion) would be using them to acquire $5 Amazon Gift Cards.  Making the most out of Amazon gift cards leads me to #2.

2.  Amazon Prime, Amazon Mom, Amazon Student
Amazon has fantastic deals on just about everything, but I always hated the shipping fees and often wanted to place small orders that would not earn free shipping.  That all changed when I bought Amazon Prime 3 years ago.  Amazon Mom and Amazon Student are FREE!  Amazon Prime is $79.99, but you get to invite 4 "relatives" to join your plan.  What will that get you? Free 2nd day shipping on all Amazon Prime tagged items (90% of what is sold on Amazon).  Use your swagbucks to score hot clearance deals and save a ton with Amazon Prime.  If you see an $80 toy on clearance for $5 you can save a bundle and not have to worry about shipping fees.

Just a fast FYI- KMart is having a MASSIVE clearance event.  They have racks of UGLY Sweaters and winter clothing for $1.99.  Stock up for White Elephant gifts and holiday parties.  There are some really tragic outfits today.  Did I mention the Red "Velvet" pants??  Who doesn't need a good pair of RED Velvet pants? For $1.99 they would make a great gift (Consider this a DARE!)

They also have TONS of toys on clearance (50% off lowest sticker price).  They have adorable Little People playsets fro $6 (castle, princess, unicorn).  Lots of great Easter Basket fillers.

Tiny Prints Mother's Day Offers

Tiny Prints is offering a fantastic Mother's Day card promo at the moment.  Right now you can get a Personalized Mother’s Day Cards from Tiny Prints for just $0.99 for a limited time. Just use code MDAY99 at check out. You will need to pay shipping of $0.44 for each card. But this is still a great deal considering that greeting cards are $2.99 or more. Plus with this Tiny Prints you can personalize cards with photos. This code is good to use through 4/12.

Mother's Day of 2007 will always be my favorite because it was my first!  National Holidays stink when you want to be in the "club" but are not.  Many Mother's Days were truly terrible but many friends sent "thinking of you" cards in 2005 and 2006 when they knew that we were struggling with family building.  If you know someone in the same boat, consider sending them a "thinking of you" card on Mother's or Father's day- you just might turn a dark day bright. 

CLICK HERE to explore the entire Mother's Day collection.

Tiny Prints provides simple, modern and unique stationery from Fathers Day Cards to personalized greeting cards to thank you cards, business cards, and even custom wedding invitations or photo birth announcements. Offering exclusive designs from the nation’s top designers, easy card personalization, a powerful preview engine and top-notch customer service and paper quality, their designs have been lauded by numerous television networks, publications and celebrities. With Tiny Prints by your side commemorating every holiday and momentous occasion is a cinch! They offer perfect party invitations for every occasion and memorable personalized photo-gifts like notebooks, photo books and calendars to commemorate the event.

Tiny Prints offers beautiful products and they are sponsoring this post by providing me with a $50 Gift Card.  One Lucky Mom's Nite Out participant will take the gift card home!

Success At The Checkout - Nothing Extreme About It

I will admit that I am excited to watch TLC's Extreme Couponing tonight.  I love that the show opens people's eyes to the possibilities.  I am sad that the show participants will likely come across as a bit mentally unstable.  I still cringe when I think about "Mr Coupon" from the first episode.  I am a die hard Krazy Coupon Lady fan, but every time I think of Joanie I think of dumpster diving with children.  Tonight's show will certainly create buzz about coupon users.  Keep in mind that the Albertson's segment tonight took about 120 hours to plan and checkout took 5 hours.  I like to save, but 120 hours?? Not statistically good enough to make me do it. 

Want to save like a pro and eperience the coupon high without going to extreme?

Here's My Formula For Success (for This Week).
