Chocolate Skull & Freebies

Dollar Tree sells skull molds, so yesterday I used organic raisins and melted chocolate to make these yummies.  If you're a vegan you can use non-milk chocolate, or mix your own from a Baker's block.  Easy enough and ever so yummy. 

Next time, I want to make peanut, chocolate and raisin.  Then maybe a crunchy cereal texture, followed by coconut and dark chocolate.  Oh heavens.  So good.

Here's the shot I go this morning.  Click to expand.


I'm off work again today but don't need to rest so I'm doing chores.  But before I go, dig my Wally World score.

Just part of yesterday's couponing fun.


Eight shaving gels @$1.27 each
Used 4/$3 off 2 gels, coupons (from Red Plum insert)

Four lady razors @$3.89 each
Used 4/$4 off each razor (click Smart Source)
*Requires a download of their printer software 
*Limit 2 printables per computer

The overage from the shaving gels paid the rest of the tax on the razors.  In the end, they gave me about 34 cents, that I used for the rest of my transaction.

And that's how I coupon.  A little here and there so that we're never paying full price for beauty and household items.

Got questions about couponing?  If I can help, I will.  Just ask.  In the meantime, have an oogie boogie of a day.

    1. Sometimes I can find good stuff at The Dollar Tree, more so now that they accept coupons.

      I snag some neat freebies there as well.

    1. At one point I took pictures of our stockpile shelf but I don't know if I ever posted it. Right now, we're in the middle of gutting the office, where most of the main products are stored.

      It's not that big of a stockpile when compared to the drama series on TLC, but it makes us happy to have these things for super cheap and free.

      Do you coupon?

    2. I don't but would love to. I have searched for decent coupons in my area but they are few and far between. If I can find them they are for things I don't use.

      Have you tried printable coupons?

    1. They were fun to make though next time I'll use a brush to get at those little air bubbles.

  8. I like that skull a lot. Normally I don't buy shaving gel as it's so expensive and you don't get much in the bottle. Not like mens shaving gel. They get a huge can and we get a small one, but we've got more surface area to shave.

    And razors have gotten to be outrageously priced. You've got some good deals here!

    1. Couponing my friend. That's the only way I can afford to get girly shaving gels for myself. Otherwise, I'm with you, WAY too high.

      I've not used these razors yet but for the price of free, I had to give them a go. If you have a Walmart near you, please do download those coupons. Each razor comes with two blades, it's not much but it's free.

  9. That is a fantastic shot of the chocolate skull! Looks like your photo taking skills are pretty darn good!

    Did you eat some of the chocolate? I bet it was great. I used to make a lot of chocolate at home with al kinds of cool molds when I kids were little. I haven't done it in years, but I think it would be fun to try!

  18. I don't think the chocolate skull would last long enough with me for me to remark on his name being Yorick, let alone how well I knew him...

    That's what I get for reading too much Shakespeare.
