Here's what I got
Reese's $1.00 less $.55 coupon doubled
Life savers $1.69 less $1.00 coupon
6 Sweet Sue Chicken $1.09 Less $.75 coupon (this is the only place in town I can find this brand of chicken up $.09 from the last time we had coupons.)
Mentos $1.39 less $.55 coupon doubled
Ziploc Freezer bags $2.00 less $.40 coupon doubled
Total with tax $4.54
How did I decide what to buy? Reese's were free. I took the life savers to work. Nice to have something since I talk all day long. The chicken is so good to have around for dips or when I forget to take something out for supper. We needed the freezer bags and I wasn't going to any other stores.
Does anyone else shop at Fred's on Saturdays?

Well, last week my step son asked for some different stuff for dinners. I have tried not to use the oven a lot during the hot months. Now that it is a little cooler this week, we are going to have some stuff like shepherds pie and Mexican chicken. I'm looking for some new recipes nothing sounds good right now as it is not quite cold enough for all the winter meals I usually fix.
I have a $5 register reward at Walgreen's that I need to roll. Unfortunately, I don't see anything I can't live with out to roll it. Maybe I'm just on a shopping burn out. . . . .
Hopefully, now that my month of working overtime is over, things will get back to normal. The overtime pay came at just the right time as I needed new tires and was able to do the extra work to help pay for them.
We also have a big remodel project that should start in a couple of week so my house will be torn up for a few weeks when that gets started.
Life sure can get crazy sometimes.

DO NOT MISS YOUR CHANCE TO CAST YOUR VOTE:
This is your chance to vote on Obama's performance on this Economy-AT&T/Yahoo Poll... NOTE: this is a totally unbiased poll. The question is stated very simply... and, to the point. No tricks. No hidden messages. No nothing. JUST A SINGLE, SIMPLE QUESTION. There is no way that anyone can say that it was not a fair poll... or, that it was "phrased" in a way that it can be interpreted later... to fit someone else's desired answer. In other words... it is a spin-doctor's "nightmare."
NOTE: After you vote, you will see a second page that shows the running total and what the opinions are.
Then pass it on... so others can cast their vote.

4- 12 packs Sierra Mist $10.92 (buy 3 get one Free)
4- Scotch bubble mailers $.39 each less 4- $.50 coupon
4- 3 packs of gum 2$2.69 less 4-$1.00 coupons
Gummy Worms $.99
Less 2- $1.00 register rewards
Total after tax $11.51
Gallon of Milk $2.59
6- 3 packs of gum 2/$2.69 less 6-$1 coupons
2- Rimmel Foundations B1G1 Free $6.99 less $3.00 coupon

This is how I chose what to buy:
I should now have enough foundation and powder for my 16 year old step-daughter to make it the full school year. I will be on the look out for eye shadow and eye liner to complete to box I have stashed. The gum was a good price since I think we supply the whole school bus with gum. The bubble mailers I will stash back as I usually need these around Christmas. I forgot to buy Milk yesterday so it was a must and we do not have any can pop left. I was so glad they didn't make me get a free Mountain Dew (what the coupon said) since we try not to drink much caffeine.

Here are a few things we are doing to save money before we leave and while we are there.
For starters, I am not buying any more groceries until we get back. We have been eating from our stock pile other than what I bought last week. We will be working over the next week to eat all the fruit and produce we have so nothing will be left to go bad.
We will be taking all snacks and drinks with us for the long drive. Gas station stuff is very expensive.
We are taking with us spaghetti sauce, hot dogs from the freezer, lunch meat that we already have and some mustard, relish, salad dressing etc. We will be staying at my father-in-laws house and will be cooking several easy meals while we are there instead of eating out all the time. We have the room to take extra items. I don't know much things costs there and these were all bought for a few cents or free.
I hope everyone is having a great summer. I will be back to blogging sometime the week after we get back.

Barbecue Gumbo Recipe
6 tablespoons butter
2 large yellow onions -- peeled and chopped
2 large green peppers -- cored, seeded, and chopped
1/2 bunch celery -- trimmed and chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 pounds barbecued meat scraps
2 cans (28-ounce size) crushed tomatoes
3 cups chicken stock8 ounces frozen cut okra2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Louisiana-style hot sauce
Melt butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add onions, peppers, and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 20 minutes. Add garlic powder and season to taste with salt and pepper. Increase heat to high, then add 1 cup water, meat, tomatoes, and chicken stock to pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until meat is fork-tender and falling apart, about 30 minutes. Add okra, red pepper flakes, Worcestershire sauce, and 1 tablespoon hot sauce (or more if you like) and continue cooking until okra is tender and gelatinous and gumbo has thickened, about 15 minutes.
I think this will be great with BBQ season here. What do you do with your left over meat?

1 pkg Kabossa or Smoked Sausage (I used 2 smaller packages one of each kind)
1 tsp oil
1 medium onion
2 cloves of garlic (I didn't have this so used garlic powder.)
1 1/2 lbs potatoes cut 3/4 inch thick (Next time I will slice everything smaller.)
1 16oz frozen green Beans (thaw before cooking.)
Salt and pepper ( I added Cavenders and Tony's.)
Brown sausage. Cook potatoes and onion in oil until tender. (almost done) Add green beans. cover and cook 5 more min. Add sausage cook til warmed.
Tonight we will be having my version of Chicken Cacciatore
1lb boneless skinless chicken (diced)
1 med onion
1 green pepper
1 packet taco seasoning
1 jar/can spaghetti sauce
1 8oz can tomato sauce
pepper, cumin, chili powder to taste
Place diced chicken, onion and pepper with taco seasoning and water in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 min. Put chicken mixture and juice in a pan and cook on low until done. Add all remaining items and simmer. Serve over spaghetti noodles and top with cheddar cheese.
Now, on to what we are having this week. I haven't found any good meat sales in about a month so we are running really low. The only meat I have purchased has been hamburger which I went to the store for something else and it happened to be an unadvertised sale. Hopefully there will be some good sales this week. If not I will have to purchase it at full price. YUCK!
Meat Loaf (step daughters favorite - will have one more time before it gets too hot)

Did anyone do the Hunts tomato sauce rebate? Its so weird. A couple of the cans rang up weird prices like .80 instead of $.99. I guess because I bought a odd number so I had to go back. I ended up with 13 cans for $5.07 and will get back a $5.00 rebate. I shouldn't need tomato sauce for a while. I also got the pledge anywhere cleaner for $3.50 less printable coupon for $2.00 and will get $1 register reward making this $.50 (The Walgreen's manager had also told me that none of the stores were suppose to take internet coupons.) Other rebates I got this time was the $1.00 for ALL, $3.99 for the Free Wal-Zyr, $6.99 for the Free Axe Shampoo, and $2.99 for the free Walgreen's quick gels. I will also get 10% back for getting my rebates loaded on my gift card.
I can't believe it took me so long to figure out the Easy Saver program and now they are doing away with it. The store was here for a year and half or longer before I even knew the program existed. It wasn't until an elderly customer came into work needing a copy of her rebate form and receipts so she could mail in the originals that I thought I might need to look into the program the next time I went in the store. At that time, I didn't shop Walgreen's the way I do now. And to think I might not have found out about the program if the her bank didn't start charging $.25 for copies. Anyway, after making her copies for a couple of months she started bringing me coupons from the local newspaper that she wasn't going to use. We make copies for people all the time but since she was giving me her extra coupons I thought I might need to check with my boss and see if she cared which she didn't.
Only one more month of the Easy Saver program. I hope the whatever new program they come up with will be easy. Rumor has it that they are going to beef up their register reward program. I hope this is not the case. Register rewards are great but are so hard for me to keep up with. Maybe I need to get more organized.

Has anyone tried this? Or do you have a method that might remove pet odor? I can't just get rid of the couch. It is still new.

The only shopping I have done is some small trips to Walgreen's to use all of those register rewards I got a couple of weeks back. The rewards worked out great as for all of our grocery needs like milk, bread, etc. I also got the free after rebate items and only spent $2.90.
I forgot while the kids were with their moms how much food teenagers eat. I am so glad I continued to stock items that we eat all the time when they were cheap or free. It has been nine-weeks since I cooked every night so I plan on making a menu plan probably on Sunday. When it is just my husband and I, we cook a few nights and eat left overs or frozen pizza the rest. How do you make your menu plan? Do you list out what you are having every day or do you have a list of items available and let everyone pick from the list? I have always just made a list of about eight items and let the kids take turn picking what we have. I don't know if this is the best option so I may try the other for a few weeks and see how it goes. I hope to use my crock pot more for busy nights. I also hope to set aside a day for my step daughter to cook every week. She loves to cook and it is so hard for me to walk away from the kitchen and just let her do what she wants.
Laundry!! How do teenagers have more than one load of laundry a day? There are only two of them. The bad part is they have actually wore all of them. Son has to have All soap or he breaks out. I need to find some good coupons and a really good sale on this soap. My husband and I have been using another brand I got for really cheap while the kids were away but I have to have this kind for him.
I have to sit in a 8 hour class tomorrow for work. Yuck! I won't be doing double coupon day at Fred's this week but I don't need anything. My stock pile has grown alot, but there are still alot of items I have a hard time finding a extra good deal on to stock up like toilet paper and cream soups. Does anyone else have this problem?

I could have broken my transactions up a little differently and been out less up front. However, the cashier I got was not the most friendly so I hated to push it. I got the only 3 lotions they had that were this size. The best part is I still have $9.50 in register rewards to use on my next purchase. I plan on going back later in the week for some additional items. But first I have to search for some more coupons in my mounds of coupons.
Have you been to Walgreen's this week? If so what were your great finds?
Tuesday, February 24, 2009
I didn't have much time to prepare for surgery with one day notice so my husband made the Walmart run for me. He even price matched a couple of items and used a few coupons. He has been a great babysitter and is probably wondering if he will ever get a home cooked meal again.
Since food is not tasting that great and we have plenty of stuff in my stockpile, there won't be much shopping this week. I went through my coupons yesterday and there are several that are expiring at the end of the month that I might try to use. I have searched the ads this week and haven't found any great deals so this is a good week not to shop.

Hope everyone has a good Valentine's Day. I think our plan is to stay home and watch some free movies from the On Demand channel. I cooked a noodle casserole last night so we have left overs for tonight which will make it where I can rest this evening.

Will get back in rebates $6.99 + 10% for having my rebate loaded on my gift card.

Ribeye Steak $7.54 Less $3.00 off
T-Bone Steak $6.95 Less $3.00 off
All in All it was a pretty good shopping day. I hate being out so much money up front at Walgreen's but my December rebates are not loaded yet and they only had a few of the free after rebate items in the store. I was afraid if I waited they would not have any. I'm glad I found some reduced meat. My husband's birthday is at the end of the month and Ribeye is his favorite. I always make sure we have one to grill for his special day.
Now, I'm going to gather up some of my stock pile to give to my sister. They are still out of power and lost or cooked the food that they had in their fridge and freezer. I figure anything she doesn't have to buy while she is trying to restock her cold goods will be helpful.

Here is a run down of what few things I bought at the store this weekend. We really didn't need anything but I had a few special requests and there were a few good deals I wanted to get.
Soft Soap $1.49 Less $.50 Manfg coupon doubled
Suave 24 hour $1.00 Less $.50 Mang coupon doubled
4 Sweet Sue Chicken Chicken Less $.75 coupon
Total before coupons $14.43
Total after coupons $2.57
Knowing that the pizza rolls and the Doritos would be yanked out the grocery bags before I even got through the door, I decided to try and take a photo of my cart. Not the best photo but. . .
4 Pizza Rolls $1.99 (sign said $1.69 so I will have to go back.) Less $.35 Manfg coupon doubled
2 Doritos on sale BOGO $3.99
4 Pimientos $.85 Less $.35 Manfg coupon doubled
Rotel $1.09 Less $.30 Manfg coupon doubled
2 Granny Smith Apples $1.55
5 Green Peppers on sale 5/$1.00
Total before coupons $22.90
Total spent $13.66
I have a list of things I would like to get done this week like organizing shoes in my closet, cleaning off dresser which somehow becomes a catch all, cleaning kids bathroom and step son's room. His idea of clean and mine are two different things. Maybe since I have listed them out I will actually get them done. But, they are calling for ice. If we loose power, nothing will get done.
Wednesday, January 21, 2009
Spring Water $.99 (I forgot to make a cooler before I left.)
8- Ragu sauces $1.99 less 8- $.25 coupons (I used 8 of the same coupons in one transaction!)
Revlon eyeshadow $4.99 less $1 coupon - will send in for $4.99 rebate
Garnier Fructis $3.99 less $2 es coupon and $1 manfg coupon (These are $3.49 at my Walgreen's so I shouldn't have got it but I didn't catch the price difference until I was already out of the store.)
6- Butterball Chicken Broth - sale 2/$1.00 (We needed this and it was a good price.)
used $10 register reward from the Pepsi deal last week
$14.96 and got back $10 register reward and will get $4.99 rebate back.
The checker was so nice and friendly. She said she had just started buying the Sunday paper because alot of the Walgreen's sales were based on them and she tried to always buy when things were on sale. Now that I know how friendly Walgreen's can be, I am even more upset with our unfriendly Walgreen's. I just wish I knew how to make them see that they are loosing business. I had already decided that I wasn't going to shop there this week because I should be able to use as many coupons as I can in a single transaction.
It's funny how shopping for me has changed. I use to look for places near where I was going to be to find a new purse, shoes, clothes or something else that I probably do not really need. This time I restocked my pasta sauce which was running really low.

We then went to Target. They had all their Christmas storage containers on sale. I was so excited to get a wrapping container. I have needed one for years. Too bad I didn't buy any wrapping paper at the after Chrismas sales. Target had a lot of things on clearance. I wish I had my coupon binder with me. Note to self. I need to carry it with me every time I go shopping. I also got packs of gloves that had 2 pairs of gloves in them for $.74. Gloves seam to get lost every year so this was a great find for me. If you haven't been to Target you should go check out all the sales. It is probably a good thing that we don't have a Target in our town. I know I would spend too much money there.
It was a great day. The weather wasn't as cold as it has been and I didn't buy anything that wasn't on sale.
Friday, January 16, 2009
Hope your having a great Friday evening. Think I will go read my book. Surely, nothing can go wrong while doing that.

The 50$ Grocery Budget. If you are not familiar with what the Lemonade Award is, the Lemonade Award is given by a previous winner to 10 people who have shown a great attitude or gratitude this week. It’s a great way to show these people that you appreciate them.
My problem is. . . .This award has been passed around several times and I can't remember who has already received it. I am grateful for so many blogs. They have helped me in my journey to save money. So I am going to nominate all of my followers. If you haven't received the award, please consider yourself nominated!

I also asked the manager about the AutoExpressions air freshener that is in the Easy Saver book. He told me that they sold out of them months ago and they are a discontinued item. That the only thing he could think of was they put them in the book to help them sell out. CRAZY! My Walgreen's does not have any of the Free after rebate items.
Saturday, January 10, 2009
Electrasol $2.99 less $2.50 coupon =.49
Suave Deodorant $1.00 less $.55 coupon doubled =.10 profit
Suave Lotion $1.00 less $1.00 coupon = Free
Soft Soap $1.00 less $.50 coupon doubled =Free
Dawn Dish Soap $1.00 less $.50 coupon doubled =Free
I did one transaction with the dish soap since I found one more I had not used and another one without it. Both receipts came to $.42
I decided to come home and see if I could find Fred's exact coupon policy. I'm glad I did. I thought I could only use one like coupon per transaction which is not the case. They will only double one like coupon so I could have purchased more Electrasol. If you haven't tried Fred's you might give it a shot.
Below is the information I was able to find about their coupon policy.
FREDS DOUBLE COUPON POLICY
(These rules apply to all company-owned, participating Freds stores.)
Manufacturer Coupon: A manufacturer coupon is a coupon for cents-off or dollars off a product, that the customer obtains from newspapers, magazines, direct mailings, etc. It is valid at any Fred’s store that the specific item featured on the coupon is sold.
A valid coupon will have the product description, cents off amount, expiration date, and an address to send the coupon for redemption.
1. Fred’s will only accept manufacturer’s coupons that feature items that we carry. (No competitor’s coupons are to be accepted) The item featured on the coupon must be the exact item that we sell, or we do not accept the coupon. The item must be the same brand, style, flavor, scent, size specified by the coupon.
2. Fred’s will not accept Internet coupons, whether they are printed in color or black and white.
3. All valid manufacturer’s coupons are accepted at face value at Fred’s every day.
4. On Saturdays only, Fred’s will double the face value of manufacturer coupons up to $.70; $.70 coupons are doubled. (ONLY 1 coupon per identical item is doubled, per customer, per Saturday)
5. No money will be returned for coupons that exceed the price of the product. If doubling the face value of the coupon would exceed the price of the item, the coupon will be accepted a face value.
6. Tobacco coupons are not doubled regardless of the face value of the coupon.
7. Coupons, which are expired, are not accepted. If the coupon is presented the day it expires, the coupon must be accepted.
8. Coupons, which offer “free” product, and do not require the purchase of additional items, will not be accepted. “Buy one get one free” coupons are accepted.
9. If the price of an item is matched with a competitor, then no coupons will be doubled for that particular item.
A customer may purchase 4 tubes of Crest toothpaste, however if they have more than one coupon for the toothpaste, the first coupon will be doubled and the additional coupons will be taken at face value. If the customer wishes to purchase more than one flavor of an item and the coupon lists a variety of flavors, only one identical coupon will be doubled and the additional coupons will be taken at face value.

1.) What stores do you have available to shop at?
In my small town there are not any of the major chain grocery stores other than Walmart. The stores I have available are Hudson's Grocery, Country Mart, Edwards, Walmart, Walgreen's, Fred's and Dollar General. Hudson's doubles coupons up to .50. They are expensive and I only go in there if they are having a really good sale. Country Mart doubles coupons up to .50 and their prices are reasonable. Edwards says they will double coupons up to .50 but it always seams to not work out and they do not double coupons on sale items. Fred's doubles coupons up to .70 on Saturdays but I try hard not to shop on Saturdays so this doesn't help me much.
2.) What coupons do you use?
I use coupons from the newspaper, magazines, or from the mail. I do not print off coupons. The stores I have available say they will take them but in the end they do not so I don't waste my time finding them and printing them. The only one that I do print is the $5/25 Walgreen's coupon as they do take their own printed coupons.
3.) The coupons I find are for things I would not use. What kinds of coupons do you use?
If you had the choice to buy Green Giant brand for .27 with a coupon or Great Value brand for .69 with out a coupon which would you buy? If you watch sales alot of items that you buy every day will be less with a coupon. Don't get me wrong, I still buy alot of off brand items but it is nice that I have a choice. I compare prices name brand with a coupon vs off brand and see what would be the best price. Try to stock up when you find a rock bottom price. One coupon that I do not cut out is for hair color. I will not use it.
If you have any other questions let me know.
