Go to http://www.driscolls.com/email/ to get a 50 cent coupon off berries.
Kathryn had a great tip for it - It will come by email to you, you will need to install or run a coupon printer, and the coupon will give 50 cents off any Driscolls product. It gives a Canadian address for reimbursement but you may want to underline it or highlight it as there is also a US address on the coupon. They get $1.08 back.

Right now if you check out Kraft online at http://www.kraftpeanutbutter.com/en/spread-the-feeling/ and send someone a virtual hug they will donate a jar of peanut butter to Winnipeg Harvest. And on August 6th head to the Forks to get a real hug from their bears Smoothie and Crunchy for more donations too! Peanut butter is such a staple food in our house - glad to see it's this easy to get a bunch donated. And spread the word! (ha!ha!)

What does everyone do with their coupons savings? Do you reincorporate them in your budget, put them away for a rainy day, a special jar? I hadn't given it too much thought - for me it's just part of my regular shopping now. It's a great idea to put just that away - I wonder how quickly it would add up! Any tips for doing it?

What did everyone plant this year? What have you found to be your biggest money saver? I was surprised by ours, it's zucchini. I'm not the biggest fan of it, but it grows so easily and quickly! It's versatile, can use it in a meal and also in baking - we made awesome zucchini walnut muffins with our special ingredient - holy crap cereal. They were so good, my daughter still asks for one every day even though we finished them a week ago - time to bake some more! Our lettuce is growing well, but I find I get kind of tired of salads. We had a great 1st batch of radishes but since then the rest have failed - has anyone else heard about planting them under the right moon? My husband has been teasing me about this, but after seeing them in the garden we are thinking my great grandpa might have been right all along!!
Is anyone looking to trade or get rid of anything either? We were lucky to get rid of all of our rhubarb - but I know sometimes people get stuck with too much of one thing, always nice to share or trade.
What do you guys find goes the furthest in a garden? What do you do with the extra?
