Stock Piling vs. Hoarding..explained!

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!
just a general stockpile - not my own!
I got a question on the MyCNYMommy facebook page last week from reader Vicki. B - asking about the difference between hoarding and stock piling. Instead of answering on facebook, i decided to make a post about this wonderful topic!

So, what IS the difference?

If anyone has seen the show "Extreme Couponing" on TLC.. THAT is what I would call hoarding. I haven't actually seen the show - just heard about enough toilet paper to last 40 years and taking out insurance to cover the loss of the "stockpile" should something happen to the home. Seriously? That IS extreme and in no way would I advocate that kind of "stockpiling".

The term "stockpiling" for couponing means to have enough product to carry you through until the next sale. For example:

Last week, Price Chopper had a sale on Unilever products. Buy $30 worth, get a $10 catalina at check-out. Now, I know from previous offers like this that I will use "I can't Believe its not butter" brand margarine (I prefer country crock but hey...the other isn't bad) and we actually use Dove Bath Soap - and these two products are unilever brand products along with WishBone Dressing, Degree Deodorant and so on.

So, I used this opportunity to stock up, literally on my favorite items! Along with the catalina, Unilever had all their coupons in the sunday insert (which is what usually happens). So I scored some great deals! I bought 8 tubs of butter, 2 wishbone salad dressings, 3 deodorant for me and 2 for my hubby, 3 jars of mayonaisse, and some other goodies.

Now, most of these things I already have one or two on hand in my stockpile. And that is what you want - to never be without an item in your stockpile - so you don't EVER run out and have to pay FULL PRICE. Gasp! That is the true purpose of a stockpile - to get you through until the next time your favorite item goes on sale.

In order to maintain a proper stockpile w/o going cray you will have to learn sales cycles and coupon cycles. Every company offers coupons on their products every so many weeks. Take Proctor & gamble for instance - everyone knows that each month they put out coupons in the sunday paper. So, if you were to go through a bottle of Herbal Essence shampoo every 2 weeks, you would buy TWO bottles when it was on sale and with a coupon so you have enough for 4 weeks - when the next sale and coupon comes out. Make sense?

Stockpiling is a topic that we will address again in my next seminar, and I will be posting about the details of all the seminars you can attend in March!

Roundabouts Review & Giveaway

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

Sponsored by Tomoson.com

Wow, doesn't that hamburger look yummy? Well - here is a secret - its not a hamburger - its a CUPCAKE! Seriously!
Have you seen these new super neat things called Roundabouts? A mom who was throwing her daughter a birthday party made some cupcakes (so much easier than cake we all know) and wanted them to be extra special so she made them look like - boxes of popcorn!



How neat is that?! When  everyone asked her where she bought the cupcakes - she knew she was on to something and roundabouts was born. Now, they weren't perfect right away - she went through many tria;ls and errors before getting them just right. Roundabouts are now produced without the use of toxic agents or bleaching chemicals and are resistant to water, grease and oily substances. And, the packaging is designed to reduce waste and is 100% recycable! Cool!

Here is a step by step process of using Roundabouts to make your cupcakes go from plain to pizzaz:





And there you go - a hamburger cupcake! I love this! Hamburgers and Popcorn aren't the only designs Roundabouts has - there are over 70 to choose from including baby bottles, ice-cream cones, race-tracks, easter bunnies - you name it Roundabouts has it! You will never think the same way again about a cupcake after you see these!

So, which design would you choose? How about we give away one package of Roundabouts to a MyCNYMommy reader and you can pick!

To enter the giveaway comment below and tell me which design you would choose from the Roundabouts.com website and FILL OUT THIS FORM. Any other comments will be deleted.

Dinosaur Train Game GIVEAWAY and Valentine's Day Cards Freebie Reminder

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

This Valentine’s Day is about Love - and that includes the love for my kiddos! I’ve been thinking of what I would like to give them for the day - along with a small amount of candy (and I mean SMALL!). And I have a few ideas - one of which are games. Since my boys are still REALLY into dinosaurs (I thought the phase would have ended already but no such luck) - the new game from Dinosaur Train sounds like something I will want to give them. Check this out:

The Dinosaur Train Make A Match game featuring Buddy and his friends sharpen children’s memory skills in this special matching game. To begin play, 48 game cards featuring favorite Dinosaurs from Dinosaur Train are shuffled and laid face down in 6 rows of 8 cards each. Players take turns turning over any two cards—so all players can see them—to find a matching pair. The game features “Take Buddy” cards, “Wild Cards” and “Lose a Pair” cards to add to the excitement. Players count their matching card sets at the end and add extra points for the player holding Buddy to determine who wins. The Dinosaur Train Make A Match Game is for 2 to 4 players, ages 3 to 6, and is available at Toys “R” Us stores nationwide for just $9.99.


Last week we told you about the FREE Valentine’s Day cards you can print that feature the Dinosaur Train Characters - perfect for little siblings that don’t want to be left out of the Valentine’s day fun!

For more Valentine’s Day fun, check out the new Flying with Buddy game that reinforces counting skills as Buddy collects seashells. Players use the mouse to control the flight of Buddy, Don and Tiny. Move the mouse UP and Buddy raises his legs, and Don and Tiny fly higher. Move the mouse DOWN and Don and Tiny fly lower, and Buddy reaches to grab the shells on the ground. After one minute of game-play the characters return to their nest to count the treasures they collected. Check it out for FREE at the following link: http://pbskids.org/dinosaurtrain/games/flyingwithbuddy.html

The hit television series Dinosaur Train™ airs daily on PBS KIDS® (check local listings). Get more info on the show: http://pbskids.org/dinosaurtrain/ and if you want to make things really fun for your child - check out this information on geocaching! Cool!

One MyCNYMommy reader will win the Dinosaur Match Game!

Here are the giveaway details:

*Giveaway will run through Sunday February 13th, 11:59 PM
* Winner will be announced and has 48 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen.
