Nebraska Furniture Mart Texas: WIN a $1,000 Gift Card, plus Early Shopping Event for Coupon Crazy Mommy Readers! (Sign Up Now) #NFMWishList

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 6.38.54 AM

Now through March 10th, head over to the Nebraska Furniture Mart Facebook Page and enter to WIN a $1,000 Gift Card (valid for Texas Residents only).

I’m chomping at the bit for the new Nebraska Furniture Mart in the Colony to open.  You probably remember  I was invited to a special sneak peek a few weeks ago, and to say this place is huge is an understatement. It has over 500,000 square feet of retail showroom — the store and warehouse together are 31 football fields long! See my pics below.

So what’s the first thing I’m going to look into purchasing when those doors open???  A new couch!  My family of five (which includes three rambunctious boys who seem to be growing bigger and bigger every day) is having a hard time squeezing together on our current couch...

Recipe: Sassy Chicken Enchilada Dip (National Tortilla Chip Day is Feb. 24th) #MarketStreetTX

Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 8.09.40 PM

National Tortilla Chip Day is Tuesday, Feb. 24th.  Who knew?!? I plan to celebrate with my new favorite chip found in the deli section of Market Street.  I actually discovered these chips a few weeks ago when we had dinner at my neighbor’s house and my hubby and I devoured almost the entire bag! {Gulp} They remind me of the chips at one of my favorite restaurants in Tyler, TX, Papasitos, because they’re lightly sprinkled with paprika. And in the infamous words of Ed Grimly, “Everything tastes better with paprika on it, I must say.”

So, today I stopped by Market Street and grabbed a bag, along with some chicken (it’s on sale Buy One Get One FREE through Tuesday) and made this recipe for Sassy Chicken Enchilada Dip.

Big News! Small Changes.

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 12.46.14 PM

I’ve got some exciting news to share!  Tomorrow I’m starting a new part-time job doing PR for a large ad agency. And the best part — it’s only 1/4 mile from my house and I can almost see my boy’s school from the parking lot!

But don’t worry, this website isn’t going anywhere. {Whew!}

I’ll still be on the hunt for the best deals, posting store match-ups, teaching couponing classes, and making silly videos (that’s whenever I can wrangle willing participants). But since I’ll be working Tuesdays through Thursdays, 8am-3pm, the Daily Deals Newsletter, is now becoming the “Crazy Deals Newsletter” and will be delivered Mondays and Fridays.  

On a personal note, it’s been over TEN years since I had a real job in an office...
