FREE Federal and FREE State Tax Filing with TurboTax!

So who’s ready to file their taxes? Cue grumbling and feet dragging all around, right? Do you dread having to pay someone to file your taxes or paying $50 for the “best” tax software? What would you say if I told you that you can FREE Federal taxes filing and FREE state tax filing this year? Exciting, right? Well you can with TurboTax Federal Free Edition.

There must be some catch, right? Well, there is but luckily it’s not a big one. You just have to be eligible to file the 1040A or 1040EZ. This means that you have a taxable income of $100,000 or less and you claim the standard deduction (rather than itemizing). You may not qualify if you have a more complex situation like owning a home or being a business owner (although I made $1500 last year as an independent contractor and I qualified!) but if you don’t fit any of those, give it a shot. You can even file for free if you have children and claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or are currently a college student!

What are you waiting for? Try the TurboTax Federal Free Edition today!

FREE Energizer Batteries at Walmart and Target!

energizer max batteries, 8 pack

So how many of you bought electronic toys for your family this year for Christmas? Did you forget batteries? Never fear because I’ve got a great deal on Energizer batteries at Walmart and Target. They’re FREE after coupons and a gift card rebate.

8 packs of Energizer Max batteries are $5.97 at Walmart and specially marked packs (see image below) have a $10 Walmart e-gift card offer if you buy 2 packs. So $5.97 times 2 which is $11.94 minus a $10 gift card back. BUT, it gets better! Coupons.com has a $1.50 off Energizer Max batteries coupon. So it actually ends up being $8.94 plus tax for TWO 8 packs of batteries and then you get a $10 Walmart e-gift card back! How awesome is that? […]

Jersha’s weight loss progress pictures (56 pounds down!)

So you may remember a post awhile back where I revealed that Dup and I have lost over 100 pounds combined since January. Now, I’m detailing more of my weight loss. I’m super excited to announce that I am now down 56 pounds, as of this past Saturday.

8 months and 56 pounds down!

8 months and 56 pounds down!

I started on January 19th at 275.4 pounds and as of Saturday, I am at 219.4 pounds. I’m getting so close to ONEderland (under 200 pounds) that I can taste it.

In case you’re wondering, I started at a size 24 jeans and I’m now wearing a size 18. I haven’t been very good about keeping other measurements but I know that my waist was around 46 inches in February and it’s now 40.5 inches. My hips went from 53 inches to 47 inches.

I still have a lot of weight to lose but I am absolutely thrilled with my weight loss so far. I can’t wait for the next 50 pounds to be gone!

Preparation H Medicated Wipes for Women Review

It’s called Preparation H Medicated Wipes for Women. These are bathroom wipes (similar to the ones you see in the toilet paper aisle) that are specially formulated to soothe hemorrhoids. They contain cucumber, aloe, vitamin E, shea butter and chamomile, along with the tried and true witch hazel. These work together to help soothe the area and prevent discomfort. […]
