Thanks Coupon Cravings!

Dinner ideas for the week!

This week is a little crazy as we are going to a family reunion for my husband's family Thursday, Friday and Saturday. So really I only have three meals I'm going to be making. Wednesday, Sunday, and Monday.

Grilled Steaks and Sweet Potato Fries

Grilled Honey Mustard chicken with corn on the cob

Chicken Parmesaen with a caesar salad (maybe I'll even try to grill that!)

Yes, lots of grilling this week, I want to leave the oven off as much as possible in this heat!

Printing coupons with a different zipcode

As you might have noticed I don't ever post coupons that require you to put in a different zipcode. (Unless it's from Rite Aid or Walgreens deals that I didn't catch from Hip2Save) I don't feel it's completely honest to be printing coupons from a different zipcode as the manufacturers put out the coupons for that specific area, and I don't live in that area, so I feel I shouldn't get the coupon. There have been several times that I saw a coupon and wanted to print it off, and realized I had to put in a different zipcode to print it, so I didn't. I figure there are tons of deals and I don't need to be pretending to be from another area just to print off more coupons. It's my personal opinion, but I thought I would let you guys know why I don't post those deals for you.

Modbe Warehouse sale!

I was running lower on shampoo and conditioner considering I haven't bought any for 5 months, so this is a great price for me to snag some!

Thanks Hip2Save!

Amber also commented- The deal on Herbal Essence at Rite Aid is actually better. So, if you still have those coupons, you should check that one out. There are a lot of great deals at Rite Aid right now (I made $2 shopping there yesterday). And then you don't have to worry about what to buy with the extra RRs.

Thanks Amber!

Home Date night idea!

O.k. I'm a little late with this one, and it is something you probably have done before- but have a game night with that special someone. Sometimes we just can't seem to decide which game to play- so we'll put all the games we have even a slight interest in and write it on a slip of paper and put it in a hat. (Make it an exciting hat, like a sombrero or a pioneer hat or something.) Then we'll choose out which game to play. Sometimes we'll shorten the games so we can get to two or three for the night, or we'll just play one game a few times, or one really long game like monopoly.

Since that isn't an out of the ordinary tip- I'll let you know of an AMAZINGLY fun game we played for the first time during our date last week- and that you probably haven't heard of. I love the game Ticket to Ride, but my husband does not. So I am sad because I only get to play this on very rare occasions. However this new game Thurn and Taxis is similar to Ticket to Ride, but my husband will actually play it! (I'm thinking I need to invest in this!) You have post offices you're trying to build, and you're trying to connect routes, but you aren't locked into a certain route like in Ticket to Ride, and you're aware of who is close to ending the game, which is something my husband likes. I love strategy games, and this one has so many different strategies you always feel like you have so many options. (Maybe TOO many options sometimes :) )

Another GREAT game we have played is called Bohnanza- it's a bean planting card game. Don't mock it before you try it. I got it for my birthday this year from my amazing sister, and after showing it to several of our friends they decided to make the investment in it- it's an addicting one though so be careful.

And another fun one is Metro. In this game you are building railroad tracks and you want to get the most points by creating the longest and most intricate railroad tracks.

I have to say Germans make the best games. Metro is a french game, but most of our favorites- Bohnanza, Settlers of Catan and Carcasone are all German. And I think many of the fun board games out there if they aren't German they were knocked off a German game. Way to go Germans for creating so many awesome board games! Check out Killer Bunnies too if you haven't heard of it. Have fun!

Taste of the Valley and Taste of Jordan Landing

The 18th annual Taste of the Valley in Provo will be on July 24th (that's TOMORROW!) from 12-3 PM. It offers area restaurants a chance to showcase their cuisine to the community. There will be 22 restaurants participating this year. Cost for this event is $10 per person or $38 for family of four. Purchase tickets at the Chamber of Commerce office (51 S. University Ave., Suite 215) at the event. I have gone to this event for the last three years, and LOVE IT! Although tickets have kept going up in price every year- $10 is now a little steep for me, but we usually bring ziplock bags and coolers because then it gives us food for a few days. You get a ticket that they punch at every booth you go to, which means you really can't eat all the samples- some of them full size samples from 22 different restaurants- so you can get the food and keep it for later when your not so stuffed. :) I absolutely love it!

I also heard they will have a Taste of Jordan Landing this year for a much better price- and it's a fundraiser for the Utah Food Bank! Win win win all around! At Jordan Landing on July 24th from 2-5 PM you can purchase tickets for the event at $5- or $3 if you bring 3 cans of food. AND children under 10 will be free with purchase of an adult ticket- even better! They will have over 15 vendors participating. The Taste of Jordan Landing will also feature craft demonstrations, games, face painting, live music and giveaways, including a drawing for an acoustic guitar. Jordan Landing is located on the west side of Bangerter Highway between 7000 and 7800 South. Fun and Fun!

Redplum update

Here is what I have found out...

It looks like the Daily Herald WILL continue to offer the Red Plum insert in their newspaper- at least for the next year. It wasn't a matter of the Daily Herald pushing more for the Red Plum, their contract just isn't up with them until next year- while the rest of the Utah papers are up this year. BUT that means people in the Utah county area will NOT be receiving Red Plum inserts in the mail since they can get them in the newspaper. So the only way you can get the Red Plum insert is in the Daily Herald- but that means you can get multiple inserts- happiness!

For the rest of you- check here to see if the Red Plum will be delivered to a mailbox in your area. If not, you can email to be put on their VIP mailing address and get them delivered to your specific address until they get to your area.

I was also contacted yesterday and told that the grocery guru said if you get the newspaper you will automatically receive TWO Red Plum inserts every week in the mail. I would imagine that means you get at least two or more Sunday papers- and I haven't been able to confirm this- but I thought I would let you guys know what could also be happening for those of you getting mailed your inserts.

I hope that helps clear up some confusion, and I'll update you more as I find out more. Thanks!

Dinner List!

I completely forgot to put this up yesterday! Here it is!

Mango Pork Pizza- I made this Tuesday and it was pretty much AMAZING!!! The main recipe was from Amber's Food for Frugal Foodies blog, and then I used a different creamy tomatillo dressing because I didn't have all the ingredients for it from Amber's recipe. I still didn't have the cilantro and it ended up tasting great!

Eating out at Gloria's Little Italy for our half year anniversary with a gift certificate- I LOVED THE FOOD, IT WAS SO GOOD!!!!

Killer Chef Salad- with peas and ham and green peppers and tomatoes and anything else i can think of that will go well in a salad.

Tin Foil Dinners- We're going camping!!

Big family dinner with Eric's family for his grandma's 80th birthday.

Steak and baked potatoes- (we missed this last week)

Creamy tomato pasta- 1 can of stewed tomatoes (I drain out some of the juice) one half pint whipped cream, basil to taste- heat until boiling then turn off. Cook penne pasta to go with it and serve it all together with parmesan cheese.

There you go! Enjoy!!!!

Wednesday, July 22, 2009 80% off code!

This is the only time I buy my certificates! When they are 80% off! Go to and use the promo code NAPKIN to get 80% off any purchase on the site. To see how to maximize this 80% off code, or if you're new to and don't quite know how it all works, check out my previous post about it here.

Remember to go through Cashbaq to get even more money back for your purchase!

Arby's Wednesday deal!

It’s Freebie Wednesday, so head on over to Arby’s for a FREE Roastburger with any soft drink purchase! This was DELICIOUS when I got it last month- I would say worth the price of the drink- although I didn't really drink the drink. :)

Cheap Tuesdays at the Cinemark $$$ Theater!

I love Tuesdays at the dollar theater! The regular prices for the Cinemark in Provo is $1.50 during the week, and $2 on the weekends after 6PM. Still a good deal. But on Tuesdays you can get in for $1! I know that's what the dollar theater price used to be, but still it's a discount from what it is regularly now, which makes me happy. And they have the movie Disney Earth there right now, definitely one I wanted to see in the theater. I have to say I love dollar theaters. I have a hard time paying full price for a movie, or even a matinee in a regular theater, because if I can see it for $4 or $6 less- I can wait a few weeks for it to come out there. Drives me husband a little crazy, but it makes sense in my head. :)

Mondays also have a family special price of .50 a ticket for 3 or more people! And Senior day is Monday as well where you can get in for $1.

Check out if you have a Cinemark by your house and what movies are playing here.

Free Town and Country Magazine!

Dairy coupons RESET!!!

I am SOOO loving these dairy coupons! We love dairy at our house, and go through it so quickly!

Milk is $1.50 at Smiths this week so with these extra coupons you can get a gallon for .75! And their yogurts are priced at .31 and .33- with the yogurt coupons you can get them for .12-.14 each! That's fantastic! If you live in Utah or Idaho print it off quickly!!!!

Pulling Valassis out of Utah newspapers?


I have been hearing lots of information regarding Valassis pulling out Utah newspapers this August. That means Red Plum coupons will no longer come in our newspapers, but they will mail them to households. I have heard they might be staying in the Daily Herald, but I have heard confirmations telling me both they are pulling out and they are staying, so I don't know quite who to believe yet. To read more information and how to get involved to keep Red Plum IN our newspapers so we don't lose out on this valuable coupon resource- ESPECIALLY those getting multiple newspapers, check out this pinching your penny forum all about it. I can't believe they would do something so drastic, and I hope our efforts to get involved will be enough to keep them in our newspapers!

Music Days at the Gallivan Center!

Tomorrow, July 21st from 10am-noon, come have fun with Radio Disney as they host Music Days at the Gallivan Center!

Question about Grocery Smarts Lists

I received this question this week.

How come Target isn't one of the stores on your Grocery Smarts website?

Great question! I actually had to ask my boss this question and here is the answer I received.

Many of our grocerysmart store lists are compiled by volunteers every week. Target isn't a store that someone has volunteered to do yet. If you're interested in becoming the Target grocerysmarts list maker for Utah, you can contact me and we can set you up to do that!

The thing I love about the grocerysmarts lists is that I know everytime I go into a store and I matched up the sales and coupons with that list, I can rely on it 100% everytime that the prices and coupons will match. Sometimes on Hip2Save's website or other blogs, they are national and so although they have regular prices, the prices at my store are not the same and I end up not getting half the things on my list for that reason. (That is one of the main reasons Walmart is hard for me to shop at. The prices at two stores even 1 mile from each other are so different- and I can't rely on what information I have been given before I go, so I don't shop there anymore.)

I love Grocery Smarts!

Free chocolate today and breakfast tomorrow!

Today's another free chocolate Friday! (I just used my first chocolate coupons this week at Rite Aid because they were having a Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale- so I got 8 bars of chocolate with my 4 coupons for free!) Go here to sign yourself and up to 3 other people in your household up for free chocolate!

Also- IKEA is offering free breakfast on 7/18-7/19. Check here for times the free breakfast will be available at your local store!

Home date night idea of the week!

I still haven't been able to track down a croquet set, but I wanted to tell you guys my idea anyway. Set up your croquet set, and then wait until it's dark. (maybe watch the movie wait until it's dark until it really is dark!) Then grab your clubs, the balls and some flashlights for a rousing game of glow in the dark croquet. Doesn't that sound like so much fun?!!? I'm pretty thrilled about it if I can actually get a hold of a croquet set to use for the evening.

Let me know your home date night ideas!

Summer Pool deals for the family!

My husband and I were going to go Seven Peaks yesterday after he got off work, and we found this deal. If you bring in one 5 Buck Pizza boxtop you can get up to two passes into the park after 5 PM for $5 each. (The regular half day pass is $12 and that starts at 4 PM- but where this starts at 5 PM after the $5 pizza, and the two passes- it's still MUCH cheaper than the regular half day pass, and you have dinner for the evening, and it only starts 1 hour later, which works better for my husbands work schedule anyway.) You can get as many admissions as you have pizza boxes for the $5 price if you had a bigger family.

Like I said my husband and I WERE going to go, but then we had a friend bail on us, and we wanted to go another time when more people could go with us- so we looked at other even cheaper options. Here's what we found.

The Scera pool in Orem is usually $5 for adults, $4 for kids 4-13 and $1 for kids 1-3. At 6 PM they offer half off on their admission prices- a pretty good deal since they are open until 9PM.

Veterans pool doesn't offer any evening discounts, BUT they do let you in for FREE the last 45 minute so of the day- which is 7:15 M-Th and 5:15 Friday and Saturday.

We got our 5 buck pizza, went to the park right by Veterans Pool, played there and ate our food. (Which by the way- 5 buck pizza is REALLY good! I don't know why I had bad thoughts towards it before, but it was fantastic. You can get so many toppings on your medium pizza and it still costs $5) Then at 7 we went and changed and they let us in at 7:15. It was still hot enough that it wasn't too cold, and 45 minutes is the perfect amount of time in the water for our 1 year old. He had a lot of fun, but probably wouldn't have stayed much longer. We are definitely going to do it again- as we had so much fun- and for free!

Chili's and Applebees- 2 great meals for $20!

Chili's has a new deal going on that lets you get an appetizer, 2 entrees and a dessert for $20! Check here for menu options for this deal! My husband and I rarely get an appetizer or dessert to keep our cost down, but now we could get it for less than the price of what two entrees usually are! Hooray!

Also I went to Applebees with my husband's family last Saturday, and they had a deal where you could get an appetizer and 2 entrees for $20. (No dessert, but still a good deal.) I love Applebees. Their sample platter is to die for! (Which you can get at 1/2 price after 9 PM M-Th, and you can substitute the buffalo wings for honey BBQ wings, much better in my opinion.) Have fun!

Free Breyers ice-cream at Albertsons!

There's a new $1/2 Breyers coupon. At Albertsons they have their pint sized Breyers ice cream for $1. If you use your double coupon with it- this will translate into two pints of FREE ice cream! But it gets better. You can print another $1/2 Breyers coupon here. And then there is a catalina promo running that looks like this.
  • Buy (2) & get $2/3 Breyers, Klondike, Popsicle, or Good Humor
  • Buy (3) & get $3/4 Breyers, Klondike, Popsicle, or Good Humor
  • Buy (4) & get $4/5 Breyers, Klondike, Popsicle, or Good Humor
  • Valid through 9/23/09
That means if you print off both coupons and use them with your double coupons you get 4 pints for FREE! BUT you also will get a catalina that gives you $4 off your next purchase of 5 of any of those brands- Breyers, Klondike, Popsicle, or Good Humor. Which translates into you buying 5 pints of the Breyers and paying $1. Your original 4 pints with the 5 you buy from your catalina means you get 9 pints of ice cream for $1. That is a pretty SWEET deal if I do say so myself!

If your Albertsons happens to be out of this ice cream, check to see when their next shipment comes in, and don't be too stressed because the catalina runs through 9/23. I am just not sure how long the pints will be on sale for $1.

Thanks Utah Deal Diva for the heads up on this great deal!

ALSO! Check here for more double coupon matchup ideas to use for this week's sale from PYP. You could score some free yogurt and cereal!

Arby's Wednesday deal!

Today you can get a Free Regular Roast Beef with any soft drink purchase at Arby's- no coupon needed! (Just make sure your store is already participating before you go.)

And don't forget to get your free Roastburger with any soft drink purchase. They've extended this deal through July 17, 2009.

Dinner list!

I think I'm going to be posting my dinner list on Wednesdays from now on.

Macaroni Cheese and Tomatoes- pasta mixed with a can of diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt and pepper, a little bit of sugar and mixed with cheese. Served with pears

Steak and Baked potatoes- (with my new A1 sauce I got at Target for .09!) and veggies

Gourmet Ham and Cheese Sandwiches- with thousand island dressing and cottage cheese and peaches for a side

Cheesy chicken rice bake

Roast, Mashed potatoes, and my grandma's famous carrots

Sweet and sour meatballs with rice and peppers and carrots

We're also going to Seven Peaks one night and the coupon we have requires us to buy one $5 pizza, so we're doing that for dinner and getting into the park at a discount!

These are pretty basic recipes, so I didn't add many links for recipes, but let me know if you want one specifically.

Thanks for help with the fish recipes last week, I decided to go with Kristi's Broiled Tilapia Parmesan, check it out!
