This is valid 5/24-6/2 at participating stores (most should honor the coupon but you can always call ahead and ask.)
This is a great little treat for the kiddos or if you want to freeze that freebie for another day- here is a simple idea for freezer smoothies I posted last summer:
Here is a new Michael’s coupon available for 50% off one regularly priced item.
This is valid May 24-25 only and is a nice high value coupon for Michael’s! If you need any pricer craft supplies or baking items this is a great time to stop in.
I like to use these on the craft punches and cupcake stands and other things that don’t always go on sale.
You can also use this at Joann’s stores if that is more convenient.

The girls and I have been testing out several homemade lemonade recipes this spring and we finally found one that I think is a perfect mix of tangy and sweet that I wanted to share.
This is about 1000 times better then the powder mix lemonades and I find it a little lighter and more refreshing then the stuff you can buy at the store.
It is so fast to whip this up and a fun way to get the little ones in the kitchen too! My 4 year old and 5 year old have become very good little lemonade makers (we seriously tried about 11 recipes or so and this was the biggest hit). I make the simple syrup and they squeeze the lemons- pop in the fridge and viola! Perfect lemonade!
This does have sugar in it but far less then the stuff you buy at the store and you can always substitute agave or turbinado sugar if you prefer to skip the white sugar. (We did try this with honey instead of sugar and it wasn’t to my taste but that is another option.)
We just have one of these juicers that was maybe $5 or so at Target. (Or grab one for $5 from Amazon here.) It is really fast to juice the lemons- my little girls can actually do this step.
Here is the recipe:
Squeeze the juice from about 8 lemons ( or 6 lemons if they are large). You want about 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice total.
Add 1 1/3 cups of sugar to a pot and 1 cup of water. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes until the sugar dissolves. Set aside.
Add lemon juice and 8 cups of water to a large pitcher. Once the simple syrup cools mix that in as well.
Chill well and serve!
So simple and just delicious! I prefer a little tang to my lemonade. If you like it just a tiny bit sweeter add 1 1/2 cups of sugar instead if you are a super, super sweet lemonade person adjust the sugar to 1 3/4 cups.
Recipe slightly adapted from All Recipes.
And if you want a little caffeine kick- try this easy homemade iced coffee recipe.
And here is another recipe for a perfect iced tea lemonade (or Arnold Palmer)- one of my favorite summer drinks!
And here is a new offer from Starbucks.
They have these crazy looking cold cups in stores that were designed for Frappuccinos. This is a limited edition cup available from May 24-30 only. I have seen the new chiseled cups in store which are similar to this one and they are totally different then any other cold cup I have seen. They have fun colors available for the chiseled collection but this specific cold cup is only available for a short time.
If you purchase one of these cups, you can get a free Grande Frappuccino drink! I am not sure of the price on these but the Frapp alone is probably $4-5 so a nice little perk.
And if you want to try making your own Iced Coffee drink at home, check out my easy iced coffee recipe. I live on this during the summer!
Here is a cute little denim jacket for $17 shipped today.
This one is a darker denim and has little polka dots- so a very cute way to dress up basics. This would look fantastic with red jeans or for a little more coverage with some of the cute summer dresses and maxi skirts.
Just head over to Target to grab your jacket- the sale is today only.
PS: You might also check the sale on delicate necklaces to go with this. Get 2 for $14 today.
There is a fantastic deal on Self magazine today. You can get an entire year for $4.49- so $.37 per issue!
I like this one a lot- it is a great one to stay on track eating well and excercing during summer.
You can get up to 3 years at this price and this is cheaper than buying just one issue from the store!
Head over to Discount Mags today only and use coupon code myfrugaladventures at checkout.
And this gave me a little laugh- especially because I have actually started running again this spring. Happy Friday!
