okay, so i have heard that kroger changed their policy.. this is what i have heard so far.
you can still load ecoupons to your kroger card BUT you may not use them in conjunction with a coupon that you cut out from the sunday paper or internet.  It is either or!  so.. for me that means i would rather have the paper coupon that i cut out because that will double.. the ecoupons don't double.. so you might get more off with a doubled coupon.. i would recommend e coupons for people who don't like to cut out coupons.  so if you have ecoupons loaded on your card right now.. you have to wait for them to expire, because when they scan your card at the checkout, the ecoupon will come off automatically and if you try to use a paper coupon the computer will catch it and beep!  
just an FYI!

There is a terrific Groupon deal today: get 5 DVD movie rentals from Blockbuster Express for just $2 ($5 value)!  Yep, that’s a darned good deal. You can give these as gifts, too which is nice. You do not have to rent all 5 movies at once; I believe you get 5 free movie codes to use when you want.
This deal is probably in many cities today, but I see it under the state of Connecticut – choose Hartford. Sometimes it is a side deal so you have to look over to the right. Because this is essentially an online deal, anyone can get it. So when you click the link it should take you to the city you signed up for, then just go to the top of the page and search for Rhode Island. If you haven’t yet signed up for Groupon, it will ask you for your email and your city of choice.
You can find a Blockbuster Express near you here.

So what the heck is Swag Bucks?  Swag Bucks gives you the opportunity to earn points – or “Swag Bucks”- simply for searching the web. You accumulate your Swag Bucks and then you can easily cash them in for prizes, including gift cards which is what I do. I pretty much exclusively cash in my Swag Bucks for $5 Amazon gift cards. Plus, it is so darn easy to cash them in on Amazon.

I mention Swagbucks here on A Coupon Chick a lot.  Swagbucks truly is a very easy reward program and you can get all sorts of freebies out of it.  I have gotten many free items by cashing in my Swagbucks for gift cards.
My favorite items to buy on are grocery staple items.  My family tries to curb eating out which means a lot of home cooking (by me!).  My most recent freebies from Amazon were:
I regularly cash in my Swagbucks for the $25 or $50 e-gift cards and then I order grocery items. It’s just another way to get creative with my grocery budget.
If you have been on the fence about Swagbucks, I have gotten a Kindle free (yep, used my Swagbucks!) and got most of our girls’ Christmas gifts free in 2009 and 2010.  Read more about the Swagbucks reward program here.
Hope you’ll consider joining – it’s a great way to supplement your food budget :D

Crock Pot Organic Yogurt- Look What I Made

Thanks to Traid Deals for passing along this thrifty tip on how to make  Frugal Organic Yogurt in a crock pot.   My Mom made homemade yogurt when I was little, but have never tired it as an adult.  The recipe looks easy enough, have any of you done this before?   If you would like to be a featured guest post on Look What I Made , watch for our weekly post each Tuesday called A Thrifty online craft fair, link up and you may be selected for our weekly feature post.

My good friend Sarah sent me an email of a great Frugal idea! She made yogurt from scratch! How awesome is that! If you’re like me and many moms I know, we are always looking for frugal Organic food!
So, here’s the recipe:
Turn your crock pot to low and pour in 1/2 gallon of milk.
Heat on low for 2 hours and 30 minutes. (for 2 quart crock pot, add an extra 15 min. for bigger crockpot)
Once 2 hours and 30/45 minutes have elapsed turn your crock pot off and unplug it. Let the milk cool in the crock with the lid on for 3 hours.
After 3 hours remove 1-2 cups of the warmed milk and place in a bowl. To that add 1/2 cup of yogurt with live active cultures and mix very well.
Pour the yogurt-milk mixture back into the milk and whisk thoroughly.
Place the cover back on the crock and wrap the entire crock pot in a thick bath towel or two.
Let it culture overnight, 8-12 hours.
In the morning stir yogurt (if desired) and store in glass quart jars or a container of your choice.
For optimum texture, refrigerate for at least 8 hours before using
Total work time for you: about 5-10 min! the crock does the rest!
The first time you will need to but 1 cup of plain yogurt (I used the greek plain), after that, you simply take out 1 cup from the batch you made and set aside for the next batch.
after you set aside the cup for the next batch, you can add different flavors. I mixed mine with some vanilla extract, and some with frozon blueberries thawed.
the cheapest organic yogurt is about $3/quart (on the cheap side)
I used 1/2 gallon (2 quarts) organic whole milk $3
basically cuts the yogurt budget in half if not more! and tastes so yummy!
