CLOSED ~ Win a Copperhead Movie Pack! (ticket, poster, book)

Who's up for a super-quick giveaway? I am so excited about the upcoming release of this movie ~ David will LOVE it!  He's my little history buff!  Read on for details on how to enter to win! Contest ends 6/9 at midnight!

We are proud to announce the arrival of a Civil War movie unlike any you’ve seen before. Copperhead, a film for the whole family, opening in theaters June 28!

Did you know that this year marks the 150 year anniversary of the The Battle of Gettysburg? 

We were all taught about the Civil War in school, but how much do we really know about the challenging stories of the brave families during the era? Mothers, fathers, and children all experienced intense hardship as family members left to fight in combat. 150 years later the timeless stories of families affected by war still remain especially pertinent. 

Commemorate the 150 year anniversary & keep your kids learning during the summer by catching Copperhead, a Civil War movie the whole family can watch together and talk about! 

About Copperhead:
From director Ron Maxwell, (Gettysburg, Gods and Generals) Copperhead is unlike any other Civil War movie. Far from the Virginia battlefield, it’s the exciting story of Abner Beech (Billy Campbell), a peace-loving but stubborn dairy farmer in upstate New York. He detests slavery, but opposes the war for the sake of the “union.” Abner is neither a Yankee nor a Rebel. He is a Copperhead. This is an extraordinary story of family and community. Learn more:

Fun things to try out on the blog app: 
• Test Your Civil War Knowledge TRIVIA! - Are you a history buff? Love historical speeches, figures, and places? Transport yourself back to the time of the Copperheads and take the trivia to test your Civil War knowledge. Choose your answer before time runs out! 
• Behind-the-Scenes - Discover how director/producer Ron Maxwell and his team recreated the exact look of the Civil War era.
• Copperhead Cooking: Recipes PDF -  The family dinner table was an important central focus for every household during the Civil War. Celebrate and appreciate the era by re-creating these easy-to-follow recipes with the whole family before watching Copperhead in theaters. 

One person will win an Official Copperhead Movie Pack: 
- Official Copperhead Movie Poster hand signed by Director/Producer Ron Maxwell (Gettysburg, Gods and Generals) (27 X 40)
- The Copperhead Official Companion Book [Author: Harold Frederic]
- Movie Theater Cash [Valid for 1 Movie Admission]

Kroger $25 Gift Card GIVEAWAY & June Value Event

Looking to stock up on some of your favorite General Mills brands? Your friends at Kroger have got you covered with our June Value Event!

From June 2nd - 8th, take advantage of great savings on some of your favorite brands from General Mills like Pillsbury, Totino´s, Chex Mix and Yoplait. Just buy 5 participating General Mills products* in the same shopping trip and get a catalina coupon (prints out at the end of your transaction, on receipt paper) to save $5 on your next visit to Kroger. Look for special tags on participating products.* For more details on this savings event, please visit  

These are some of the products that were included in the promotion (at my Dacula, GA store):

Chex Mix, Cheerios and other GM cereals, Green Giant Veggie Chips, Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks, Totinos Pizza, Suddenly Salad, and Hamburger Helper. I'm sure there were more!  There are printable coupons for a lot of these items, too - check out one of my favorite pages, for some links to those!

I shopped Sunday night and grabbed some good deals! The bad news is that I don't have my receipt to share exact details.  I was overcharged on one item but didn't catch it til I was in the van.   Then I had to run back inside to take care of it!   It was raining & stormy outside, and I didn't realize the CS clerk didn't give me my receipt back until I was out in the car for the 2nd time.  Honestly, I just wasn't up for a 3rd trip out in that storm!  So, I'll do my best to remember the prices and coupons I used! 

First transaction was for the buy 5, get $5 reward coupon event. I bought: 2 boxes of Golden Grahams (used a printable $1 off 2 coupon), and a box of Cheerios (used a printable .50 off 1 coupon that doubled to $1).  I also grabbed 2 bags of Green Giant Sweet Potato Chips. I had 2 50c off coupons that both doubled to $1.   Total for all this was appx $8 after coupons.  I used a $25 gift card to pay, which was given to me by General Mills via BlogSpark.  I also have a 50 cent coupon for the Green Giant chips on Savingstar that will deposit into my paypal account, so that is an extra bit of savings!

The clerk printed out and gave me my "$5 off your next purchase" coupon.  I turned around and used it on my second transaction.  For this one, I bought:  a quiche from the deli for $8, 2 pkgs of Sargento sliced cheese, ($5 total - then used 2 50 c off coupons, which each doubled to $1) 7 pkgs of yogurt for $1 each, 1 big bag of Baked Lays ($4), (I didn't have a coupon for the Lays chips but I consider them free, since I was able to use my $5 off coupon to pay for those!)  2 bottles of Moroccan Infusions Suave Shampoo (2 for $5, used 50 c off 2 coupon which doubled to $1)  2 pkgs of Annie's mac n cheese ($1 each) (used a 35c off coupon, doubled to 70c),  1 bottle of mint water ($1), Qtips ($1), and 2 Luna bars $1 each).  Total for all of this after coupons was appx $26.  I used the remainder of the gift card and then used our debit card for the last little bit.  I was really pleased with my purchases and the cost! I love when Kroger does these reward coupon events!

We are in love with Green Giant's Sweet Potato Chips - they are delicious! Katie loves their Veggie Tortilla Chips, too!  So if you haven't tried these new chips yet, take advantage of this sale to try them out for yourself!  There are other great pantry items in the sale, and if they aren't things you regularly eat, maybe consider buying 5 items to donate to a food pantry or shelter.  I could have bought things like the Suddenly Salad or Hamburger Helper and gotten them practically for free, using coupons, but I wanted to get things on my grocery list for this week!

Another bonus: You can do up to 4 of the $5 reward coupon deals per transaction, so you can stock up on cereal or fruit snacks for summer!  Just don't forget to use the catalina $5 coupon(s) they give you before the expiration date.  (that is why I like to turn around and use it on a different transaction, right then.  Most cashiers don't mind splitting your order into several transactions!)

Some tips before you shop this event... check websites like,  and the Endorse and  Ibotta apps (check out Ibotta's $10 Share the Love bonus by clicking the link)  to see if you can find any coupons or offers to match up.

I know Savingstar has a bunch of participating cereal coupons, but our store was already out of alot of the cereals.  They also have a Green Giant Veggie Chips coupon!  Savingstar has coupons but instead of coming off your order at checkout, the amount shown on the ecoupon is deposited into your account.  Once you get $5 in your account you can cash it out! Their coupons work with paper and/or store coupons, too!  Click the ad banner below to get started with! (Hint: This counts for an extra 10 entries in my giveaway, too! Same for the links above for Endorse & Ibotta - registering and downloading those apps on your phone gets you 10 entries for each!)

General Mills & Blogspark are giving one of my readers a $25 Kroger gift card to use on whatever you like! This contest ends AFTER the June Value event, but I'm sure they will have another great coupon deal or sale when you receive your prize!   There are some fun extra entry options with this contest - like signing up for your own Endorse, Ibotta and Savingstar accounts, so you can save $ too!  If you don't see the contest widget from Rafflecopter below, click the link and you should see it! Thanks for entering, and good luck!
