Free Nestle Planning Calendar

Sisters and Brothers, not everything in the world related to chocolate is food. Your Chocolate Priestess sees the Sacred Substance on clothing, movies, books and so when I have the opportunity, I will reveal these to you as well.

Via Walmart, determine for yourself whether this is a good or bad thing, you can request a planning calendar which has coupons for Nestle products. This is what the planner looks like to the left. If this looks interesting to you, I believe you can request one here. They are going to ask for an address but also an email address and there are four related questions to answer as well.

The calendar is laid out for four family members to keep track of their days, or at least one big thing they should remember each day so this won't replace a more complicated scheduling system if you currently use one. It covers the months of August 2009, just about to pass by, through July 2010. Along the right hand side is information about a few of Nestle's products and a few recipes that you can make using those products. Over all it is really geared toward packing school lunches and advice to do better in school.

I didn't get this for any of the scheduling potential but for the coupons so let's look at those more closely. Of the $20 worth of coupons, $6 is for this "Aquapod" water which I have a big problem with. Using bottled water in the quantities shown in these coupons is incredibly wasteful. Far better to have your child use a metal bottle and refill it from home. Remember, every bit of land we use as garbage dumps we can't use to grow cacao and that means less potential chocolate. Four of the coupons or another $6 worth relate to a potential chocolate product in the form of Raisinets, Edy's or Dreyer's Slow Churned ice cream, and Edy's or Dreyer's Dibs. Beyond this, if you get this calendar you need to pay attention to the coupons carefully because they have very specific use dates that vary from coupon to coupon.

Overall there are a few coupons I could use and thus it wasn't a waste of my time to request this. If you have kids who like Juicy Juice or you like coffee or use bottled water then you'd get more use of it than I. Remember you can request it here.

Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.

I whole heartedly agree with you about the bottled water though some of the effects can be mitigated by recycling. I keep a Brita water filter pitcher in my fridge and still have one of the old Brita travel fliters for when I'm going to be away from home. While water is essential for my health, chocolate is essential for my soul so I'd rather keep the land available for growing cacao
