Kashi TLC Pita Crisp Coupon/Review and the Newest Weapon in My Money Saving Arsenal

 I received a free full-size sample of Kashi's new TLC pita crisps in the mail a couple of days ago. I am trying to avoid gluten, but I couldn't resist opening them up, as pita chips and hummus is one of my favorite snacks. I received the Original 7 Grain with Sea Salt (there is also a Zesty Salsa). They aren't as crispy and crunchy as traditional pita chips, they are puffier and a bit softer, but they still have a decent crunch and great flavor. Not too salty but just salty enough. They are high in fiber and made with 10 grams of whole grains, so I do feel a bit better about eating them over the pita chips I used to purchase. My oldest two never cared much for pita chips, but they gave these a big thumbs up. If I don't ban all gluten in the house, I will most definitely purchase them in the future.

If you have check out some of my previous coupon-related posts, you know I am a member of Swagbucks, a site where I earn  virtual bucks (Swagbucks) for activities such as using their search engine, taking a daily poll, printing and redeeming coupons, etc. I redeem my Swagbucks for $5 gift codes, which I use to purchase organic and natural food products that I can't find locally or that I can get cheaper and/or in larger quantities. Which brings me to the new site I have joined, Opinion Outpost. I am constantly barraged with opinion/survey site invitations. There are a couple I have done casually and gotten a small check from here and there, but Opinion Outpost has by far been the best. I went into it with the attitude that I would see how it went, not invest too much time (because who has time to sit around and do surveys half the day?) and that it would be fun to see what I could earn in a few weeks. I earned $12 in my first few days, which I cashed out for an Amazon gift card code (there are other rewards to choose from, including a check). Today, a couple of weeks and a handful of surveys later, I cashed in another $27.80 for an Amazon gift code. I also added another $5 gift code from Swagbucks to my Amazon account today, and I plan to order from a long list of Bob's Red Mill products on my wishlist. I am certainly not going to get rich, but $40 or $50 a month toward the grocery bill is certainly nothing to sneeze at and well worth the little time I spend accumulating reward points. :)
