It’s time for another FREE project to do with your kids! Lowe’s Build and Grow Kid’s Clinic is coming up tomorrow at 10:00 where kids can make a very cool music box just in time for Valentine’s day! Unlike The Home Depot’s workshop, you must register and reserve a spot for this one. Go to LowesBuildandGrow.com, fill in all the info, print & sign your waiver, and go have fun! It’s a little late, but I was able to get in at my local store. Hopefully yours isn’t full yet.
I’ve wanted a Keurig for a while, so when I came across a great sale price combined with coupon codes for 10% off and free shipping, I got one!
I got the B60, special edition. I’m not completely sure what that means, but it’s not the smallest or the largest. The B60 falls in the middle. It offers 3 cup sizes…6oz, 80z, and 10oz. You can program on/off times and water temperature (between 187 & 192 degrees).
My favorite thing about the Keurig is the massive selection of K-cups! Coffees, teas, hot chocolate, oh my! I will be posting reviews of K-cups individually, but I can already tell you that my favorite brand is Timothy’s. Every Timothy’s brand K-cup I’ve tried so far has been wonderful. Smooth, full of flavor, no bitterness at all. Oh, so yummy! My least favorite, I’m sorry to say, is Newman’s Own. Because Newman’s is an organic company, I really wanted to like those…and I may like a different variety, but the one I tried (Special Blend) was just downright gross. Very bitter, almost to the point of sour. I love coffee and can drink it when it’s a day old and freezing, so for me to dump out a cup, it has to be bad. I dumped the Newman’s Own. But, I digress. These reviews will be posted separately.
Now, as a frugal shopper, it’s pretty hard to justify buying K-cups. They’re incredibly expensive if you drink more than one cup of coffee per day…which I do. I love coffee and can’t imagine a day without it. When I registered my new Keurig, I was able to get 2 free boxes of K-cups with the purchase of 2 boxes. When my current supply runs out, I will most likely stick with my very favorite, Community Coffee, brewed with the “My K-Cup” accessory (that I snagged for 20% off at Bed, Bath, & Beyond).
Everybody has an opinion, this one is just mine. Do more research, get more input, weigh the cost, and then decide. It was hard for me to let go of the money, but I do love my Keurig! I highly recommend it!
If you have a Keurig, please leave a comment so that others can get more input before they decide to buy!

One of my favorite things to do is to share what I’ve learned with others. It is so easy to save money in many different ways. Don’t let the thought of “extreme couponing” scare you. Using coupons effectively is super easy, doesn’t take much time, and is very worth it. My goal is to help you save money…lots of it!
