Outback Steakhouse Bold At Steak New Items & Giveaway



This post and giveaway are sponsored by Outback Steakhouse. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

I have always loved steak every since I was a little girl and so does the rest of my family. My oldest daughter ate steak every single night on our Disney cruise. That is why heading to Outback Steakhouse works well for our family especially since it is affordable to even buy my 13 year old a steak for dinner off the adult menu. Plus I love that with click thru seating it usually means little to no waiting to be seated. 


Outback Steakhouse recently added some yummy new items to their menu that we wanted to try out. These include the Wood-Fire Grilled Flat Iron Steak and Victoria’s Filet Portabella.


Available in eight different cuts, Outback’s Signature Steaks can either be seasoned and seared with a secret blend of 17 spices on the flattop grill or wood-fire grilled for a delicious natural flavor – of course in true Outback spirit, guests can request their steak any way they want! In addition to the new steak entrees, Outback is unveiling new Premium Sides, including Steakhouse Mac & Cheese, Loaded Mashed Potatoes, Broccoli and Cheese and Parmesan Fries that are sure to quickly become customer favorites.

Did you know that America has yet to unveil an official national food? The French are synonymous with the baguette, Italians have a claim on pasta and Belgium has ownership over chocolate.   Outback Steakhouse is launching a nationwide petition to make steak the first official food of the U.S. and urging fellow steak loving fans to rally behind the cause.

To show their bold love for steak, fans can sign the petition here.

If you’re interested in trying out the great new offerings from Outback, then you’re in luck. I’m giving away a $50.00 Outback gift card, so you can experience their Bold at Steak campaign and all its flavors for yourself!

This giveaway is open to US residents and ends on June 22, 2015 at midnight EST.

Refreshing New Simply Juice Drinks Plus Giveaway


We  recently were asked to try out  Simply Juice Drinks which is a new line from makers of Simply Orange and Simply Lemonade. This premium line of refreshing juice drinks is available in three delicious flavors: Fruit Punch, Tropical and Mixed Berry.



I found them at Target next to other Simply Beverages in the refrigerated section. All three great-tasting flavors are available in a 59-fl. oz. multi-serve bottle, with Fruit Punch and tropical also offered in a convenient, grab-and-go, 11.5-fl. oz. single-serve bottle.

My girls were begging to try them and I have to admit they looked pretty tasty to me too.  I love that Simply Juice Drinks are made with simple, all-natural ingredients, including real fruit juice and there are no added preservatives, colors or artificial flavors. That makes it easier for me to enjoy them and feel good about giving this drink to my kids.




These drinks are a refreshing mid afternoon treat and helped me forget about winter for a bit. If you close your eyes while drinking them you can almost imagine you are in a warm tropical locale. I think these juice drinks would make a great mixer for an adult only drink. I love a great rum punch and with these juice drinks it would be very simple to make. You can learn more and get further Simply Juice Drink themed inspirations by liking the Simply Orange Juice Facebook page

Now on to the fun part! Simply Beverages is providing one Everyday Savvy reader with a ‘Simply Great Taste’ prize pack which  is filled with premium items that complement the Simply Juice Drink serving experience, and they include:

  • 5 Simply Juice Drink coupons
  • 1 Glass juice carafe
  • 1 set of Essential Highball Glassware
  • $50 AmEx gift card


This prize was provided by Simply Beverages, but Simply Beverages is not an administrator or connected in any other way with this contest.

Grand Opening Outback Steakhouse Livonia Mi Plus Gift Card Giveaway



Outback Steakhouse opened  its newest restaurant location in Livonia, Mi this  Wednesday, November 12, 2014.  In celebration and to give back to the community, they will  be hosting  a charity day on Monday, November 17th, 2014. On this day a portion of the restaurant’s sales will benefit the American Cancer Society, Livonia Chapter. This would be a great day to check out the restaurant and support a great charity!

For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, the organization helps people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back against cancer.

The new restaurant will serve lunch daily and will be the first in the Livonia area to feature a new “Modern Australia” design both inside and out. The “Modern Australia” design with décor that mirrors the indigenous flora and fauna, adventure, geography and leisure of modern day Australia. Guests will also enjoy a spacious, energetic bar area that includes a community table – a great place to meet up with friends and enjoy specialty beer, wine and hand-crafted cocktails. The new bar will also feature customized seating and furnishings and is connected directly to the outdoor dining patio.


Outback is best known for grilled steaks, chicken and seafood but  also offers a wide variety of crisp salads and freshly made soups and sides. I have been following a Whole30 diet recently and was very happy the Outback could easily work within my dietary restrictions. I  selected an Outback Special steak (grilled with no butter) , sweet potato no butter, and steamed veggies with no butter. It was so nice to have a night out and not worry about breaking my Whole30.


Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 4.27.08 PM



The Livonia Outback Steakhouse® is located at 13010 Middlebelt Rd, Livonia, MI 48150 and is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday- Thursday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday- Saturday, and 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. on Sundays.  For on-the-go guests, Curbside Takeaway is available by calling the restaurant or placing your order online. This is great for busy nights!

You can also get on the waitlist right on or use call-ahead seating  by calling the restaurant at 734-421-0220. This is so helpful especially dining with kids. We did this when we visited Outback last week and we were seated within 5 minutes of arriving. I think all the guests were wondering how we got special treatment.

For more information about Outback Steakhouse®, please visit, or follow them  on Twitter @Outback.



To help celebrate this new Livonia restaurant and the charity event, we’ve partnered with Outback Steakhouse® to offer one (1) Everyday Savvy reader a yummy meal or two at any Outback location around the country.

Save on Groceries – Plus a Chance to Win a $50 Visa Gift Card


It is the new year and I know you all want to save money! One easy way to do this is with Favado. This is my favorite money saving app. It makes saving at the grocery store so easy since most of the work is done for you. Another great thing about the app is that it is FREE!

You can find out all the deals at your local grocery stores and drug stores. Plus it will even tell you if there is a coupon that makes the deals even better.

Be sure to register and download Favado today! 

Personalized just for you, the Favado money-saving app will help you keep your resolution to save on groceries this year with step-by-step weekly goals from the best money-saving brains in the business. It’s the solution to keeping your 2014 resolution! Check out the themes for each week:

I also am hosting video chats around each theme so you can learn even more! We will be answering the questions you ask on this post during the live chats!!!

Week #1 (Jan 7-14) — Smarter Grocery Shopping Habits 

The first week, we’ll be talking mostly about the little habits you can change while shopping that can make a big difference in your grocery spending…such as not buying the magazines off the rack at the checkout, writing a grocery list and sticking to it while shopping, as well as checking unit prices and sale expiration dates.

Favado Helps by…allowing you to have a shopping list in the palm of your hand that you won’t forget at home!

Here is a link to the week one video.  Learn how you can save!

Week #2 (Jan 15-21) — Shopping the Sales and Following the Sales Cycles

Grocery stores and manufacturers work hard to push out their best sale prices to you on a weekly basis through their store circulars. If you follow along closely, you’ll notice that most products operate on an 8-12 week sales cycle.

You’ll also find that “product families” all go on sale at the same time, for example all the P&G products will be discounted the same weeks, and will return to their regular prices for a few weeks, then go back on sale together.

Favado Helps by…showing you when your favorite products go on sale, so that you can purchase them when they are on sale and not have to pay full price in between sales cycles. Over time, you’ll learn how much to purchase to last you until the next sale.

Join us for upcoming chats or watch the video at the Bargain Shopper Mom Youtube page

Week #3 (Jan 22-28) — Couponing for “Double the Discount” 

The deep 50-70% savings that you hear talked about frequently occur when you combine a coupon with an already discounted product for “double the discount.” For example if toothpaste is on sale for $1 and you have a $.75 off coupon, you’ll get that toothpaste for just $.25, as opposed to its $2.49 regular price.

Favado Helps by…doing all the hard work for you and putting the best sale prices with matching available coupons in a nice, organized list. Favado makes it easy to find these discounts and save big on groceries.

Join us for upcoming chats or watch the video at the Bargain Shopper Mom Youtube page

Week #4 (Jan 29-Feb 5) — Meal Planning

Making a meal plan based on what’s on sale in your local grocery stores can help you cut your grocery bill by 20-30% alone. Matching your meals with the sales is a simple, scissorless way to save each week at the grocery store.

Join us for upcoming chats or watch the video at the Bargain Shopper Mom Youtube page

Favado Helps by…allowing you to search for ingredients that are on sale for the meals you want to make each week. Want to make a slow cooker meal that calls for boneless skinless chicken thighs or beef roast? Favado can tell you which store has those ingredients on sale each week.



To add to the fun, join in the Favado Twitter parties!  You can RSVP for tonight’s party here! We’d love for you to join in the fun.  There will be $300 in grocery store gift cards to give away each week!  Each Twitter party will match the theme for the week, as outlined above.

Reader Giveaway:  One lucky Bargain Shopper Mom reader will win a $50 VISA Gift Card courtesy of Favado.  To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 1/20/14.  Good luck!

Floating Ornament Made with a Silhouette Cameo

Silhouette Cameo Machine Giveaway Worth $299 #Giveaway

Floating Ornament Made with a Silhouette Cameo

****Congrats to Lanicsha W. , Our Cameo Winner****

It’s no secret that my favorite crafting toy is my Silhouette Cameo electronic cutting machine. With some inspiration from Pinterest, I decided to make this really pretty,  floating glass ornament. I bought some plain, glass ornaments from Hobby Lobby. I used my Cameo to cut a piece of one of those clear transparency sheets from the office supply store. It has a notch at the top to hold it into place. I cut Santa’s Sleigh out of black vinyl and applied it to my transparency insert. I rolled up my transparency and tucked it inside my ornament, and then added some fun snowflakes from the craft store. To give you an idea of how detailed the Cameo can cut, the vinyl is only 3/4 of an inch tall!

Silhouette Specialty Media Promotion


My daughter loves American Girl, so I tried out the Silhouette Printable Silver Foil to create a Treats Shoppe for her dolls. I found these cute little glass containers at Hobby Lobby. They were 50% off this week, making them just around $1-$1.50 each.  I used some beads and small candies that I had here at home to make doll candy to go inside the jars. I print and cut the silver foil labels with my Silhouette Cameo. Note that the silver foil paper needs a few minutes for the ink  to dry after taking it out of the printer, before doing your print and cut in the Silhouette. I also noticed that darker colors work better on the silver foil paper.

Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit Monogrammed Card BargainShopperMom

Nice Discount on the Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit and Machine Bundles Plus a Silhouette Portrait Machine Giveaway

Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit Monogrammed Card BargainShopperMom


*****Our Giveaway is over. Congrats to Nancy P! Save on the Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit and Machine Bundles through September 13th! *****

The Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit is one of Silhouette’s newest products. I was excited to be able to try this fun kit. I thought it would be very cool to create a monogrammed stamp since normally, a monogrammed stamp would be something that you would have to special order. Plus, custom-made stamps can be pricey. If you have a Silhouette machine, you could make yourself personalized stationary, notecards and more with the Silhouette Stamping Starter Kit. [Read more…]

Rainbow Loom Giveaway

Rainbow Loom Giveaway – Hot New Craft Kit for Tweens


Rainbow Loom Giveaway

 ***** Our Rainbow Loom Giveaway is over, but you can shop the Rainbow Loom store below for looms and refills. Congrats to Leah S.  #Giveaway #RainbowLoom *****


Rainbow Loom kits are one of the hottest new craft kits for tweens.  I first saw the Rainbow Loom at my local independent toy store. I walked in to browse and noticed they were holding a free class on how to create a new pattern of bracelet with the Rainbow Loom. I was intrigued! These loom kits are literally flying off the shelves. They are in such demand that they are getting weekly shipments of refill bands and they only allow each customer to purchase one of each color of refills at a time so that everyone has a chance to buy refills. I have to admit, they are pretty cool. Basically, you take brightly-colored rubber bands and your loom to weave fun accessories like bracelets, anklets, rings and more. The styles and patterns seem to be endless and the refills come in so many colors, including glow-in-the-dark.  [Read more…]

ALDI Summer Products Plus $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway

aldi summer products


I am so excited about today’s giveaway! It is a $50 gift certificate to Aldi and there will be two winners. The gift certificates are provided by Aldi.

Aldi’s prices are amazing so your $50 will go far! In all my Grocery Savings Classes, I always talk about how Aldi is a great way to save at the grocery store. They do not take coupons but they have very low everyday prices.

The ALDI Summer Seasonal catalog is available online through August and features a wide variety of Summer Seasonal items such as Parkview Griller Sausages, Sangriana Sangria and Benton’s Waffle Bowls, available exclusively during the summer months. The waffle bowls are just $1.69 for 10. I bought some last week and my girls loved them.  They thought it was such a treat to make ice cream sundaes in a waffle bowl.  I loved the price. They were able to get the ice cream store feeling at a much lower price. I have not tried the Sangria yet but I look forward to sitting on the deck with a Sangria on a hot summer day. It is only $6.99 for a bottle. You can even grab some fresh fruit with Aldi’s great prices to mix in.


Shopping at Aldi is no risk. They have designed and tested their brands to exceed the national brands in taste and quality and are so confident in the products that every item in their stores is backed by their unbeatable Double Guarantee. If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with any product they will gladly replace the product AND refund your money.



fourth of july ice cream cake

The Aldi website has lots of great looking recipes.  This cake looks perfect for 4th of July and it is made out of ice cream sandwiches. Yum! Plus it only take 10 minutes of prep time to make. Cute, fast and easy. I love that.

They also have some recipes for easy and tasty looking appetizers that would be perfect to bring to any summer get together.
