FREE chips and queso AND FREE brownie sundae at Chili’s!

I posted about the FREE chips and queso coupon you can get by joining the Chili’s Email Club.  But I wanted to let you know that after you print the FREE chips and queso coupon, it will also give you the option to print another coupon for a FREE brownie sundae!  Yummy! 

I LOVE FREE food – it tastes so good! :)

My husband celebrated his birthday right before we went on vacation back in June and I posted about all the FREE food we got from birthday club emails.  (We literally used a coupon for a FREE dessert, FREE appetizer, money off, or FREE entrees EVERY TIME we ate out!)  One of the coupons that we used was for a FREE brownie sundae at Chili’s and I have to tell you we both said it was the best we had EVER had!

So enjoy your FREE food!  We are heading out of town for Labor Day (which will mean eating out a few times) so can’t wait to enjoy our FREE queso and FREE brownie sundae at Chili’s!

**Update** - Get a FREE Bic Easy Glide pen – 1,000 given away each day!

Easy Glide - Feel the Smoothness

Some of you reported that you are constantly getting the message that the pens have been given away no matter what time you go to the website.  So I found out some more information for you:

Each day’s giveaway starts at Noon Eastern time. The first 1,000 to register each day will receive a sample.

If you go to the link any time except exactly at Noon Eastern, it will say they’ve given all the pens away for the day.  It will say this regardless whether you are there before the giveaway or after the giveaway.

These go SUPER fast – like in a minute! If you don’t get your pen today, come back tomorrow at Noon Eastern!  And you can try again every day until September 9. 

(I don’t know about you, but I think I would rather just buy the $0.50 packs of pens (with a coupon!) at the store, instead of going through this whole process! :)  Too much hassle for one free sample!)


Bic is giving away 1,000 of the Bic Easy-Glide Pens each day until September 9th!  Once the 1,000 pens are gone for that day you will have to wait until after midnight TILL NOON THE NEXT DAY to try again.  If you don’t get one, try again tomorrow!  Limit 1 free sample per person, per day and per email address. Please allow 6 to 8 weeks for delivery. Ends 9/9/10.

You can also print a $1.00 coupon for Bic Easy Glide here too.

Did you get your BOGO FREE coupon for spring bulbs coupon from Home Depot?


I got mine in my email today!  If you didn’t get yours, you must not be signed up for the Home Depot Garden Club.  They offer coupons like this quite frequently, so be sure to sign up so you won’t miss out.

Now I just need to figure out if I need some bulbs (and what kind?) for next spring! :)  Maybe some tulips like the red ones above?  Those would look so pretty cut inside in a vase too for a cheap but beautiful spring tablescape. ;)

$10/$25 purchase at Smokey Bones

Print this coupon to get $10 off a $25 purchase at Smokey Bones.  Coupon good through 9/11

Looking for some great fall wreath ideas?

I was browsing Martha Stewart’s website and came across these LOVELY Harvest craft ideas (that can be re-created for super cheap too!)

Feather wreath made with painted turkey feathers and magnolia leaves.  To do it cheap: use green wreath form, leaves, and feathers (I think I saw some there last week?)from the dollar store!

Acorn mirror or wreath – not sure if you can find a flat wreath form at the dollar store but a cheap frame from Goodwill might do the trick.  Then have your kids collect lots of FREE acorns from the yard. :)

Wreath made of dried cornhusks!  Start saving your corn husks off that super cheap corn right now you are having for dinner.  Then you can re-create this project with a wreath form from Dollar Tree and your own recycled corn husks! :)

Or you can use raffia ribbon like the Nester did to create her version (for less than $6 bucks.)

I am really starting to get in the “fall decorating mood” with the temperatures down in the 70’s tonight (woo-hoo!) and as I am seeing these projects pop up everywhere.  Think it is too early to start decorating for fall? :)

When do you change things out for fall?

Do you wonder where I get my Décor on a Dime ideas?

I get them from magazine photos, things I see in the store, things I love, but mostly from the wealth of wonderful Thrifty Decor Blogs out there!

I can’t keep quiet any longer (and I can’t personally do all of these projects to share with you) so I am going to share some of my favorite projects that I find as I read through my google reader.

Today is a few furniture Before and Afters:

Beautiful glazed coffe table at Cowboy Phraseology!



Love this white and stained wood finish from Between blue and yellow



And another white/stained wood finish on a dresser (that she got from FREE!) from Twice lovely!



Absolutely LOVE IT!  I think this has become my new favorite of finishes out there.  I had already planned to refinish my guest room furniture (that I have had since I was growing up!) and I think this will the finish I will use on it.  Now just to find time to tackle that huge project! :)

What about you?  Any great ideas you have seen that you can share with me?  Leave them in a comment.

Do you ever wonder “Is anyone listening?” + contest

I have to confess, I feel like that sometimes.  Actually, I sometimes wonder, “Is anyone reading any of this?” 

I write, and write; share deal after deal; try to provide you some thrifty decor inspiration in my Décor on a Dime projects; show you what I got at the store and how much I paid for it; and show what we are eating for dinner, and more.  But very few people share back with me?  I am doing this for YOU (my readers!) and would love to “hear” what you deals YOU are finding, what YOU are eating for dinner, and so on.

I know there are lots of you that are reading my posts (I can tell in my page views and in how many people subscribe by email and reader.)  But I really would LOVE to hear from you! I get most of the deals that I post from either other bloggers, friends and family that coupon and tell me about them, or by finding them myself.  So I know that YOU are finding great deals and I would LOVE it if you would share them with me.  (If I can, I will even post it thanking you for the heads up on the deal!)

So I am asking for a little comment love!  For a 2-way conversation! :)  I don’t want to be the only one “talking”, that is very boring and lonely! 

If you read about a deal here and find it at the store yourself – come back and let us know about it!  If I post a list of printable coupons and you know where you can use one to get a great deal, leave a comment sharing it with all of us!  :)

And to further inspire you to comment things you read here, I will be randomly awarding the “Commenter of the Week” award here at Centsible Savings!  And that person might even win something! (Coupon inserts, coupons of their choice, swagbuck gift cards, and anything else I can come up with!)

I can’t wait to start reading your comments! :)

Thank you for reading Centsible Savings!

(Comments on giveaway posts will not count towards “Commenter of the Week award.”)

$10.50 in coupons for Arm & Hammer cat litter

Sign up for up to $10.50 in coupons from Arm & Hammer® Clumping Cat Litter.

I personally love using World’s Best Cat Litter.  It is made out of corn, clumps very well, and is FLUSHABLE (my favorite part!)  I find that it lasts AT LEAST twice as long as other littler.  There are always lots of printable coupons and newspaper coupons for it.  Plus I save my UPC’s to send in and they send me more high value coupons.

What is your favorite cat litter and why?

Giveaway: Surprise Swagbucks Amazon gift card!!

Search & Win

(Giveaway will close on Friday, August 27th at 8:00 p.m.)

I have talked about Swagbucks before, but let me just explain what it is if you are new to swagbucks. 

Swagbucks is an online search engine that you can use when searching the internet.  When you use it you can earn “swagbucks” which are “points” that you can redeeem for all kinds of prizes!  One of the best prizes is a $5.00 Amazon giftcard that you can earn for just 450 swagbucks!  Many people are then using those Amazon giftcards (that they earned for FREE just by searching the internet) to buy diapers, Christmas gifts, and MUCH more!

I did a lots of Christmas shopping using Amazon gift cards (earned through swagbucks) and am saving up for a big purchase this Christmas (more on that later!)

I am going to be posting some tips throughout the coming days and weeks on how you can earn more swagbucks.

But for now: one lucky reader will win a SUPRISE Amazon gift card that I earned through swagbucks!

Here’s how you can enter:

1.  Leave a comment (with your name and email address) stating how long you have been using swagbucks and how many swagbucks you currently have in your account! 

2.  For another entry: leave another comment telling us what you have redeemed your swagbucks for (example: Amazon giftcards, other giftcards) and what you bought with those gift cards.

3.  For another entry: if you are new to swagbucks – sign up here.  Then leave a comment stating you joined swagbucks for the first time through the above link.

4.  For 4 more entries: you can come back every day until Friday and tell us how many swagbucks you have earned since the previous day!  (Example: I earned 5 more swagbucks since yesterday!)
