{Shopping this week…} Big Savings!

15 Feb

**I’m starting a new segment on my blog called “Shopping this week. ” I hope y’all enjoy!**

Jarrod and I are on the Dave Ramsey financial peace program, and it FEELS. SO. GOOD.  I love carrying my little envelopes of cash with me, because the physical act of handing cash to a cashier is so much harder for me that mindlessly swiping my card. Every item I purchase is totally scrutinized before it makes it into my buggy. For me, carrying cash makes my money much more valuable because once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Even though I’ve been a couponer for a while, this plan has brought my shopping perspective to a whole new level. I usually do most of my weekly shopping while my girls are in school on Wednesdays, therefore our “grocery week” begins on Wednesday and ends on Tuesday.  This week I’m not going to give an entire run down of my purchases, BUT I am going to hit the highlights so you can snag these too.

I’ve also planned all of our suppers from now through next WED, so I’ll be posting pictures and recipes as the week goes on.

This week’s meals are…

  • Blackened Salmon Soft Tacos
  • Cheesy Polenta and Mushroom Pizza
  • Spinach and Artichoke Baked Pasta
  • Balsamic- Ginger Chicken Lettuce Cups
(I usually only plan 4-5 meals for 7 nights because we’ll have leftovers a couple of nights)

Today’s shopping:


Call me a nerd, but I get the biggest thrill out of shopping the clearance section at Target. I stroll up the the end cap with my huge couponing binder, and I matchup as many deals as I can! I only buy products that I need or that I can get for free to {donate}. Be careful not to buy items that you don’t really need! I snagged these same deals last week, and went back today to get more… the best part is…they were discounted EVEN MORE!

  • 3 bags of All Natural Ricola 30ct. cough drops. Originally $1.96 per bag. On clearance for $0.84 per bag. I bought 3 bags and used (3) $0.75/1 coupons. Making these only $0.09 per bag!!
  • Method Smarty dish dishwashing tabs 20ct. Originally $4.99 per bag. On clearance for $2.48 per bag. I bought 1 bag and used (1) $1/1 coupon. Making this only $1.48!

  • Listerine (large bottle). Originally $4.99. On clearance for $2.48. I bought one bottle and used (1) $1/1 coupon. Making this only $1.48!
  • Bounce dryer bar– Originally $4.27. I used (1) $1.50/1mc. The total price was $2.77. * This wasn’t on sale but I needed it and had a $1.50 off coupon. The bounce dryer bar lasts 2 months, so that’s a total of only $1.38 per month!

I spent: $6.00!

I saved: $ 20.13! (that’s 77%!!)


As always, I used my $5 off a $30 purchase coupon that Publix mails me each week. I mainly bought fruit, veggies, cheese, organic milk blah blah blah. There’s little room for coupons when buying produce, but I always stick with All Natural, Organic, and search for the best deals on those.

My best deals today were:

 Finish Powerball Tabs: originally $6.99 each. This week they are on BOGO. Making them $6.99 for two. I saw one of those automatic coupon machines spitting out coupons right under the display. I grabbed (2) $1/1 coupons. Making them $4.99 for 2 OR $2.49 each!! That’s a savings of $8.99!

Lipton tea bags(100 count): originally $3.69 each. This week they are on BOGO. Making them $3.69 for two. I used (2) $0.50/1 coupons. Publix doubles any mc that is $0.50 or less. Therefore this took off $1 per box. This made each box only $0.84!! That’s a savings of $5.69!

On these deals I spent: $6.67!

I saved: $14.48! (that’s 69%)

Whole Foods

Case of Think Thin Crunch Bars {THIS DEAL IS ONGOING THRU 3/31}

There is a pdf coupon for $1/1 Think Thin Bars.

You can download the coupon here and print it as many times as you would like until it expires on 3/31.

Deal Scenario:

Whole Foods has their Think Thin bars on sale for $1.49 per bar. If you buy a case (that’s 10 bars) you get a 10% case discount.

Case price: $14.90

Case price with 10% discount: 13.41

Use (10) $1/1 coupons which saves you $10.00

Total price $3.41 for a case! OR $0.34 per bar!

That’s an $11.49 savings or 78%!

Semi-Home Made Frozen Waffles

7 Jan

Another change in 2012? Making our own frozen waffles!  We used to buy Whole Foods 365 Organic Blueberry Mini Waffles. Each box contains 8 waffles, the babies each eat 2 a morning, so one box only lasts 4 days. We buy two boxes a week @ about $2.50 per box. Thats $20 a month, $240 a year….on frozen waffles. 

Yesterday I got a deal at Whole Foods on Arrowhead Mills waffle mix. They currently have their mixes on sale for $3.99. I used (1) $1/1 printable coupon and (1) $1/1 Whole Foods coupon. I was able to get 2 bags for only $1.99 each. I won’t always be able to get such great deals on organic mixes so, I’m going to start research on recipes for homemade waffles.

When I got home (in the middle of all the {bread making}) I made about 22 waffles from one only one bag of mix!

The  semi home made waffles are double the size of the 365 waffles, so each child will only eat one per meal. This one bag of mix made about 11 breakfasts for my babies at only $.09 each!  If my children ate waffles everyday this year it would only cost us $65.70. That’s a savings of $174.30!

This quickly turned into a family affair, and Henley and Hoke ended up eating waffles for lunch.

Hoke wanted in on the action too! (still in p.j’s)

I waited on the waffles to cool and stuck them in gallon sized freezer bags with a piece of wax paper between each one.

This turned out to be a super easy and fun project to do with the kiddos, and since I did it while the dough was rising on our homemade bread, it was a great use of time!

Morning Bliss at Target- Spent $11.38 and saved $21.88!

5 Jan


I must admit, for the last two months I’ve been slipping big time when it comes to my coupons and shopping trips. I never knew how much Thanksgiving, Thyroid Surgery, and Christmas (plus two out of school babies) could throw me off my game!

Henley has become my accountability partner when it comes to going to the gym. After being trapped in the house with me since preschool got out on Dec. 14th, she loves nothing more than to go to the kids’ room at the gym and have some social interaction. As we were running out the door this morning, I remembered I needed a few things at Target. I shoved a few coupons in my pocket and we were out the door. I was THRILLED when we got to the store, and I racked up on these deals…


Spent $11.38 (before tax)

Saved $21.88

  • (2) 32 oz. bottles of Lysol– on sale for $1.87 each. I used a $1/2 mc coupon from the paper. my total cost was only $1.37 per bottle

  • (1) Bounce Dryer bar-   on sale for $2.99. I use a $2.50/1 mc coupon that I received from Vocalpoint. my total cost was only $0.49! 

  • (3) Tom’s of Maine Children’s Toothpaste- on sale for only $2.59 per tube. I used (3) $2/1 mc coupons. my total was only $0.59 per tube!
  • (2) Tom’s of Maine Adult Toothpastes- on sale for only $3.69. I used (2) $2/1 mc coupons. my total was only $1.69 per tube!
  • (2) Tom’s of Maine Deodorants- on sale for only $3.50. I used (2) $2/1 mc coupons. my total was only $1.50 per stick!
***Incase you are wondering where the heck I found 7 manufacturers’ coupons for $2 off of Tom’s, I got them from a tearpad at Whole Foods on two different but recent occasions. The tearpad was located on an end cap in the personal hygiene section (close to toothpaste). They didn’t expire until April, and I was holding on to them because I knew that Target’s Tom’s products are always cheaper than they are at Whole Foods.
