Learn to Save

Did you ever wonder how those Extreme Couponers do it? I did and finally learned how, now that my kids are older I don't need to stock up like I used to but I am all for saving money. If you find a great deal on something you don't need DONATE! The food banks and local shelters can always use toothpaste, soap and more.

The NSB Flip Factory in conjunction with New Smyrna Beach Mom is hosting a coupon class on October 1st at their facility in New Smyrna Beach. The fantastic Couponers United is conducting the class and it is FREE! If you would like more information on the event click here for the Facebook Event page:

I had a chance to have lunch at Amalfi's last week with my sweet friend Pam. Amalfi's is the former Luna Bella restaurant located in Venetian Bay. To get to it, you park by the pool and walk around to the front by the lake. I only tell you this because it can be confusing to some (as it was my friend Pam) but she found it and we had a fabulous lunch. I had a Greek Salad with meat, if it is just for you get the small, it is plenty big enough for one, with it I had a bowl of their Pasta Fagiola Soup. Both were delicious. Pam had the Chicken Philly Sub, it was fantastic and big enough for two meals.

The service was very good, our server, who was the bartender was very attentive and chatted with us about the restaurant, their specials things like that. Here is what I got:

They make their own fresh Sangria, they have open mic night on Mondays and Joe Calabrese will be entertaining there in the coming months. The first date is September 19th. They have a neighborhood night, singles night and Thursdays at the bar is .50 wing night. They have 67 wines by the bottle and 27 by the glass, they cater and do private parties and also offer delivery.

They are located at 424 Luna Bela Ln, Suite 111 in NSB. Call them at 386-957-4988.
