Friday, May 29, 2009 80% off code goes through 5/31! (Discount Certificates)

Use code: SPECIAL to get 80% your gift certificates through Sunday! This is perfect for eating out on those summer trips coming up. Check out the cities you're visiting, and see what restaurants they have to offer. I found the bigger cities usually have a HUGE selection of restaurants to choose from.

Or purchase a 3,6, or 12 month dinner of the month club, get an extra gift certificate thrown in- and then when the coupons reset at the beginning of the month- AKA- MONDAY (or technically Sunday night!)- then you can have first pick of your favorite restaurants at the 80% price! (Go here for more details on that transaction after you have purchased the dinner of the month club.)

If you would like a basic explanation of and how it works- go to my discussion post on it here.

Mac and Cheese and Capri Sun deal!

UPDATE: The catalina that prints will only do so through May 31st- so if you want to get in on this deal make sure to get there before the end of Sunday!

If your family eats Mac and Cheese and Capri Suns- this could be a good deal for you! Albertsons has the 5 pack of Mac and Cheese on sale Buy One Get One Free or the coupon jargon is BOGO.
On the Mac and Cheese there is a coupon for free capri sun with purchase.
THEN after you give the cashier your two coupons and you pay- a $2 catalina will print for the mac and cheese.
You end up paying $6.05- but get back a $2 catalina- so it's like you paid $4.05- a GREAT deal for all of that! Go try it yourself!

Thanks Joy! (That's the picture of her awesome find, and she got milk with her $2 catalina. Check out her blog- it's great to see how open she is with her budget and what she is able to get with it every week. And her recipe ideas are fantastic, that's actually my favorite part!)

Free Lip Item at Bath and Body Works!

This weekend ONLY- Bath & Body Works is offering up a Free Lip Item (up to a $12 value) with Any Purchase! Just bring in this coupon on or before May 31st to snag your freebie!

Thanks Hip2Save!

Free Chocolate Friday!

Just a reminder you can go over here to request your Friday chocolate coupon from Mars. This will go on all summer long!

Old Navy coupons reset Sunday- 50% clearance until then!

I received this message from the Old Navy Weekly advocate:

Thanks A Thrifty Mom!

Burt's Bees Lip Balm Giveaway

UPDATE! They are out of their lip balms for today, but check back tomorrow. Joy said it loaded by 8:45 AM MST, but it should load at 7 AM MST- so maybe tomorrow they will get their kinks worked out. But don't worry you still have 23 days to get yours!

Burt's Bees is giving away 1000 lip balms a day for 25 days starting at 9 AM EDT for their anniversary. I just checked on the site, (at 7:30 MST) and they still haven't uploaded the giveaway information, but as with the Mars chocolate giveaway you might have more success in the succeeding days/weeks as they get their technological bugs worked out. I'll try to give reminders every once in awhile so you can remember to get your free lip balm!

Dinner ideas for the week!

Here's my weekly dinner list.

Homemade vegetable pizza- with a cream cheese base and tons of veggies.
BLT's- Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato sandwiches- enough said!
Chicken Cordon Bleu- I just need to buy some swiss cheese
Pork Lo Mein
Homemade chicken nuggets

Remember I don't buy things at full price ever! Whenever I see an item at its best price I buy as much of it as I can or 3 months worth for our family. Even with meat when I see it at the price I want, I buy enough of it to last me 3-4 months, and separate them into 1/2-1 lbs bags and throw them in the freezer. Then when I need 1 lb of chicken- I pull the one bag out of the freezer, defrost it, and use it for my meal. Simple, and I NEVER pay over $1.99/lb for meat this way! Usually I pay under $1.39/lb.

So that means at the store today, I only need to get tomatoes, swiss cheese and a few other random veggies for the pizza. If you notice it's mostly produce, which doesn't keep for too long, but since I get my other grocery items at such great prices, I'm able to buy produce and easily stay within my budget for my family. Rancho Markets has the best produce prices this week, so I'm headed there later this morning to pick some things up.

Free portait at Sears!

Kool-Aid .50 off coupon!

I have to admit, I am not a huge Kool-Aid person, or so I thought. I was at my parents house this weekend while they were on a trip, and we had Kool-Aid as our drink for dinner. I usually just have water or milk, but wanted to try the Kool-Aid since I haven't had it for so long- and I was pleasantly surprised! I think it was the Mango flavor, and it was delicious! I probably won't drink it for every meal, but to have a fun drink every once in awhile that is SOOO cheap, I think I will invest $1. Especially with summer picnics and this awesome .50/10 coupon from! They are often .10 each and so this would bring them down to .05 each! Love it!

Thanks A Thrifty Mom!

Discussion on how Albertsons double coupons work

I received a question on explaining how Albertsons double coupon works, and hope I can clear it up here.

Albertsons put 3 double coupons in their mailer ad this week. You cut those out just like a regular coupon, and bring them to the store. (If you threw yours away you can sometimes request one at customer service.)

You ALSO bring the coupon you want doubled, so for example I used the printable $1/1 package of Kraft 2% cheese.

Go and get your product, so for me it was the package of Kraft 2% cheese that is on sale for $2.

Bring it up to the register, hand the cashier your item, then your $1/1 cheese coupon and lastly your Albertsons double coupon. The cashier will manually enter how much the coupon is doubling for. (So for the cheese it will be $1)

Kraft Cheese on sale $2
Printable Manufacturers coupon- minus $1
Albertsons double coupon- minus $1
You pay $0 for cheese! FREE!!!

If you have three items to double, hand them your three regular coupons and then the three Albertsons double coupons, and the cashier will enter each of the three coupons in the system, but you walk out of there with free cheese or whatever else you decided to get with your double coupons.

So it's like using two coupons for one product, usually not legal, but since it's a store coupon, it's the store matching the cost of your first coupon, so the manufacturers aren't out double the money for you buying only one product.

I hope that helps!
Take this printable coupon to Baskin-Robbins to get a FREE 31° Below with the purchase of any 31° Below. A 31° Below is vanilla soft serve mixed with your favorite candies, cookies and topics. Sounds good to me! This offer expires 6/21. Thanks, Money Saving Madness and Coupon Cravings!

Albertsons deals this week!

Since my husband had the car at work yesterday, he said he would watch Jack for me if I wanted to go out after he got home. So I headed off to Albertsons to get my double coupon deals. (Yep I'm an addict. I get the choice to go somewhere without my darling little boy and I choose a grocery store.)

Here's what I got:

  • 16 oz container sour cream
  • 1 bag strawberry marshmallows
  • 2 8 oz bags of shredded cheese
  • 4 packages of bacon- on clearance for .99!
  • 1 box graham crackers
  • 1 package of hersheys chocolate bars
Retails for $26.33

After coupons and sales I paid $7.15

That's a savings of 73%!

And that doesn't include the savings on the bacon after the markdown. It would be more than what it says since the full price for each package was $5.50. I was able to get 4 for less than the price of one at that price! Bacon freezes really well, and I haven't seen good quality bacon on sale for a long time. My husband was really happy!

Now to go find some more double coupons before Tuesday...

Total spent for the week $13.14. I think I might hit under $130 this month for groceries- AWESOME!!!

Hostess Outlet Store

Many of you are probably onto going to an outlet store to get your bread needs for less. Now I'm not going to lie, most of the stuff in the store was more than I would pay for it with a coupon and with a sale (like the jam and pb)- because that's how I shop. However I needed some bread, no stores have had any killer sales on bread, there aren't a lot of coupons for bread and I was curious to see what was in the store, so I went for the first time yesterday. I love trying new things, it's so exciting for me!

I found Grandma Emiles 2 lb loaves of bread 3 for $4.77- or $1.59 each. Considering I usually get a smaller loaf for $1, and it's not even close to as high of quality I decided to splurge and go for it. (And they had some Albertsons bread for .75- but it was half the size and not as good, so I figured I was getting a good deal.) Anywho- their clearance is the funnest part of the store! They had these baseball cupcake things that tasted like twinkies- one 2 pack for .25! I got two packagess- because I don't like getting too many treats, although I probably should go back for more because Eric really really liked them. And they had an 8 count of Hostess whole wheat buns on clearance for .55 each or 2 for $1- I grabbed one pack because we probably can't even go through that one in a weeks time.

I spent $5.99 and got 3 big loaves of good bread, one pack of wheat buns, and two treats. And I had an adventure! It's right off the Center Street in Provo freeway entrance if anyone else wants to venture out there sometime.

Free Apple Camp for Kids!

This summer you can sign up your 8-12 year old to attend Apple Camp where they will learn to make a movie, create a photo slide show, write and record a song, put on a show for everyone, and more! This looks so fun!

Apple Camp is available at EVERY Apple Retail Store, and each FREE workshop lasts three hours. Go on over here to find an Apple store near you and sign your kids up!

Free Sammie from Quiznos!

Join Quiznos Q club and get access to coupons and deals. This includes a FREE Sammie with sign up and a cookie on your birthday! Free dinner here I come! I signed up me and my husband.

Remember you don't have to give them your exact birthday or year, and I even didn't fill in the information they didn't absolutely need for this offer, like my phone number, because they just need to see I'm above 18 and the phone number didn't have a red dot next to it- meaning they didn't need it for me to qualify for this offer.

Free Kraft cheese!

A Thrifty Mom found this high value printable $1/1 Kraft cheese coupon. Pair it with a double coupon from Albertsons this week- and you can score yourself some free cheese! Awesome! I'm so excited to use mine.

Free Blue Bunny after rebate!


Who wants some FREE Blue Bunny frozen treats? You can get a Blue Bunny Apsen or Sedona Frozen Yogurt Granola Novelty Product free after mail in rebate. Product must be purchased over Memorial Day Weekend (May 23-25) and rebate request must be postmarked by 6/10/09. Limit one per house hold. CLICK HERE for your printable rebate form.

Dinner list for the week

Here are my dinner ideas for the week: (It's a short list because I'm watching my brothers and sisters this weekend while my parents are in Texas for a wedding. So the rest of the meals we'll be doing up there.)

Pampered Chef Pork and Ramen Skillet - delicious! And I sometimes substitute chicken for it, and it works very well.

Cranberry Catalina Chicken: A very simple and easy meal that is scrumptious! Pour 8 oz of catalina dressing and one can of jellied cranberries over 4 chicken breasts. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Serve over rice. (Hooray for free Kraft Catalina dressing at Albertsons two weeks ago! And I have a store of canned jellied cranberries I got at .25 a can a year ago.)

Easy Lasagna- We had the french dip sandwiches on Sunday instead of this, so back onto my list of recipes to make it goes!

Chicken and Brocolli bake- Check it out. I use a bag of frozen broccoli in place of the fresh.

I usually half the amount of meat my recipe calls for. Not only does this save me money, so my meat stretches further, it's healthier and I find that I don't even like the full amount of meat in my meals anymore.

Making this list doesn't take too long, and helped me be less stressed when figuring out what I wanted to make last week. Thanks for reading this, so I feel the pressure to do it. I have been wanting to do something like this for a long time now, and I really am seeing the benefits!

Free PF Changs lettuce wraps!

If you have a P.F. Chang's nearby, then you're in for a yummy freebie!

To celebrate the chipping skills of PGA tour pro Briny Baird, P.F. Chang’s China Bistro will offer everyone in America a FREE order of the restaurant’s signature lettuce wraps with the purchase of an entrĂ©e. Just go on over here and enter your email address. You will then receive this coupon via email!

Their lettuce wraps are DELICIOUS and so filling! You could probably order the one entree and these lettuce wraps would be considered the second entree for you and your date.

Thanks Hip2Save!
