IMPORTANT UPDATE – Trusted Coupon Fairies

As of today KC Coupon Clippers is no longer one of my trusted coupon fairies.   I have not been able to contact her for weeks.  I hope and pray she is okay but I have removed her ad from my website and newsletter for this reason.

All coupon inquiries (whole inserts and clipped coupons) should be directed to Couponing Is A Hot Mess at her Facebook page (click here) and ask to join her group.


New rules for earning CVS Beauty Bucks!

Yesterday I had to call CVS customer service about a discrepancy in my Beauty Bucks total.  I don’t normally pay a lot of attention to them but I logged into my account last week to see that it said I needed “$2.90 more for the next reward.”   I went and purchased shampoo which should have earned me that $5.00 in beauty rewards but nothing printed on my receipt.  Log in this week to see it now says “$19.59 more for the next reward.”  What?

Calling was an interesting experience to say the least – frustrating and aggravating and I still did not get an answer as to what is going on with my Beauty Bucks totals.

However I did find out that as of July 1 the Beauty Bucks programs has changed – would have been nice for them to tell us.

She informs me that not all products that previously qualified for “Beauty Bucks” are still valid.  Meaning they took off many items that qualified before like shampoo and conditioner, appliances, such as hair dryers and flat irons and many more items.  When I asked where the list of the new items were she tells me there is none but that she can read them to me – really?

I suggested that they get a list of qualifying items up on their website pronto or people will shop elsewhere.

I posted to a few groups I belong to and many are saying that their Beauty Buck totals are off as well.

Keep an eye on your Beauty Bucks totals and keep calling and asking them to post a list of new qualifying items (1-800-SHOPCVS)



Sugarless Oatmeal Banana Cookies – YUMMY!

These cookies can be severed hot or cold.  They are so good you will never miss the sugar.  This recipe came from a sweet little cookbook that my son received at a play group we attended for a few years at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia when he was a toddler.

I have never forgotten this recipe and I make these all the time.  I love them warm in the morning for breakfast.

I have adjusted the recipe from time to time to make a larger batch so once you get the consistency down you can do the same.  I am going to show you the consistency in the video so you will know how to adjust the recipe.


Sugarless Banana Oatmeal Cookies

You will need the following ingredients (this is what I used in the video):

2 Ripe Bananas (the riper the sweeter your cookies will be.  Do not use green or very hard bananas they won’t be sweet and your kids won’t like the cookies.)

1/2 cup of Raisins (organic is best but use what you have.  You can use any kind of raisins doesn’t matter.)

2 cups of raw oatmeal (organic is best but I have used others in the past)

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (use only good quality vanilla not the artificial)

A cookie sheet.

A silicone baking mat (not necessary you can use parchment paper or a non-stick baking sheet)

A mixing bowl.

A mixing spoon.

Measuring Spoons.

A glass mug or a glass measuring cup.

And that is it!  You are ready to start.

Baking Instructions

Before you get started take about 1 cup of water and place it in a glass container and pop it in the microwave for about 90 seconds.  Place the raisins into the heated water and set them aside for now.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Peel the bananas and mash them in your bowl.  You can use a potato masher or you can use a fork.  DO NOT put them in the food processor it liquefies them and you don’t want that.  You want them it to have bits and pieces of banana in the cookie.

Mix in your raw oatmeal.

Add the vanilla.

Remove the raisins from the heated water and add them to the bowl.

Mix it all together.

Spoon any size cookies onto your baking sheet.

Also them to bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes depending on the size of your cookies.  You just want the ingredients to dry out and mesh together.  You won’t want to leave them in too long they will be all dried out and no one will want to eat them.

Once you remove them from the oven let them sit for about 10 minutes.

Serve warm or cold.

You can store any left overs (there will not be any believe me) in an air tight container they will be a little soggy the next day but they are still delicious.
