Contigo Autoseal Kids Trekker Cup on sale $11.99 *Best cups ever*

by Kate from Frugal Living NW on July 29, 2014

contigo-kids-trekker-cup

Amazon has the Contigo Autoseal Kids Trekker Cup 14-Ounce Set of 2 for $11.99 right now. I purchased these at Target six months ago and I LOVE them. My kids take them to school and they also use them at night for sleeping. These bad boys are air tight and not going to leak. Not the lowest they have ever been but much less than I paid at Target. Perfect for back to school.

Shipping is FREE with Amazon Prime or a qualifying order of $35 on eligible items. Prices are subject to change at any time and without notice.

free-glasses

Coastal.com, an online eye wear company, is offering a fantastic promotion until July 31: Get your first pair of glasses for FREE if you’re a new customer when you use the code FIRSTPAIRFREE at checkout.

Sounds a bit too good to be true (Will the frames be junk? Will they make me look like a dork?). Since I have the eyesight of a freaking eagle and my husband got himself some Lasik, I asked Laurie, one of our contributors, and her husband to try out Coastal.com.

Is there anything possibly less fun than losing one’s glasses? Hmm, maybe having to navigate to the optometrist without said glasses to pick out, order and pay full price for new glasses. Absolutely zero fun. So when my husband lost his last pair of glasses, and our insurance informed us that they would not be paying for a new pair until November, we thought we would give Coastal a shot.

A free pair of decent glasses seems a bit too good to be true, but even James was able to quickly find multiple frames he would be comfortable wearing out in public. I might note that this is a man who is pretty particular about his glasses, and his running shoes, and the color of shirts he prefers to wear, and what he enjoys for night time snacks, but I digress…

free-glasses-4

Ordering from the Coastal website was a breeze and transferring his prescription information into the order was a quick process. We paid the shipping charge, which was much less than taking our family of five to Burgerville for lunch. The time it took to complete the order start to finish was quicker than one episode of “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.” Ask me how I know that.

We received an order confirmation the same day and a shipping notification the following day. Estimated delivery was six days, but since they are shipped from the Pacific Northwest, they arrived in just three!

free-glasses-3

Here are some shots of James in his new glasses,  Sharp, right?

Overall we are very pleased with the quality and ease of ordering from Coastal.  We saved a ton by trying out a pair for free, and would definitely consider ordering from them in the future!

Success! I love it when I force one of my contributors try out a deal and they are honestly jacked about it.

free-glasses-2

I simply can’t believe how many frames they have to choose from with this promotion. There are 27 pages of options! And there are some expensive brands available — some up to $128!

free-kids-glasses

And Coastal has kids frames included in the sale as well! There are some really cool ones — both understated and some funky colored ones!

Ready to take the plunge? Head to Coastal.com to get your FREE pair of glasses! Remember to use the code FIRSTPAIRFREE at checkout! This offer ends July 31, 2014.

The free glasses promotion is for first time prescription glasses customers only. One pair free per customer per prescription. Coastal reserves the right to verify all prescriptions. Valid for coupon eligible frames only. 1.5 index lenses included for free. Lens upgrades including: higher index lenses, progressives, Transitions, polarized and all lens coatings are available at additional cost. Shipping costs apply and are typically up to $20. Cannot be combined with other offers.

July: Produce in season for the Pacific Northwest

by Emily from Frugal Living NW on July 28, 2014

Summer Produce in the Pacific NW: What is ripe in July?

July: Produce in season for the Pacific NW

* Thanks to the warm weather we had in late May/early June this year, crops are about 1-2 weeks ahead of last year’s schedule. We will update this post as crops ripen through the summer. *

Blueberries (my favorite u-pick berry) are coming down the home stretch. If you want to pick some, head out this week! Check out Pick Your Own for u-pick farms near you! Blackberries are also ripening everywhere right now for the low, low price of free. Get some! Peaches & apricots, as well as early varieties of apples, are also ready now.

Local corn is coming in from the field, in addition to green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers. My kale continues to produce like gang busters. We’ve been drinking green juices every day just to keep up.

So much fresh local produce is at its peak right now! You just can’t beat summer in the Pacific NW.

Here are some other crops that are currently in season, along with a few of our favorite ways to use them:

Apricots

Blackberries

Blueberries

Corn

Cucumbers

Garlic

Greens (chard, kale)

Peaches

Peas

Peppers

Tomatoes

Food Rules: An Eaters Manual by Michael Pollan

You’ve heard of Michael Pollan’s books. They are a thorough, thoughtful look at the food we eat. One of my favorites is Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual (Amazon). It is a fast, funny read, highlighting 64 simple “rules” about healthy eating habits. Including my favorite: “It’s not food if it’s served through the window of your car.”
