What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

Yoplait Two Week Tune Up Givaway

***UPDATE:  And, the winner is..........drumroll...........SvelteSTUFF!  Congrats, Sue.  I'll ssend your inof to Blogspark and they will mail you your prize. 

MyBlogSpark has graciously sent me a Yoplait Two Week Tune Up kit and has offered to send one to one of my readers as well! 

This year, Yoplait Light is giving women a great new way to get ready for special occasions with the launch of the new Two Week Tune Up plan. Whether it´s for a class reunion, a birthday, or your best friend´s wedding, Yoplait Light´s Two Week Tune Up could help you lose five pounds in two weeks by:

  • Replacing your breakfast and lunch with a Yoplait Light yogurt, a whole grain, and a fruit
  • Eating a diet rich in lean protein and non-fat dairy, including a sensible dinner, beverages, and snacks
  • Walking 30-40 minutes daily

Please visit Yoplait for study and full diet details.

I received enough coupons for FREE Yoplait Yogurt to be able to eat two a day for two weeks.  Unfortunately, I had difficulties getting any grocery store to let me use more than one coupon at a time, so I was unable to actually do the plan as it was meant to be.  I was able to get many of the yogurt's and I am still picking one up every time I go to the store.  We love the Strawberry Shortcake the best.  it is a really nice thick real strawberry tasting yogurt.  We tired the Boston Creme Pie and some of the dessert flavors, but I tend to like my yogurt natural tasting like strawberry, vanilla, etc.  Yoplait has always been our favorite yogurt and we will continue to buy it. 

Yoplait and Myblogspark will send one reader a prize pack consisting of a gym bag, a reflective wrist wallet and a pedometer as well as one coupon* for FREE Yoplait Yogurt. *This coupon offer for Yoplait Light yogurt is not valid in some states, including California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, Nevada, North Dakota and Tennessee.

You can go here and print a coupon for 75¢ off 4 Yoplait Yogurts.  **This coupon offer for Yoplait Light yogurt is not valid in Louisiana, Nevada and North Dakota.

If you would like to win this prize pack, please leave a comment and tell me what your favorite flavor of yogurt is today.  Winner will be drawn Sunday.  The Prize Pack will be mailed to the winner from Blogspark.

Good luck!
