It's a new week!

My sister was in this past week with my niece and I had a great time playing with her. She is almost 9 months and just an angel. <3 My kids are on spring break this week, so I won't be shopping a lot, but I will be keeping up with things. Taking kids shopping kills a budget. **************************
Here are some of the things I bought at Kroger yesterday. For those of you who get triples, I am jealous. :)

3 Fiber One bars @ 2.49 each...minus (3) .50 coupons, doubled...$1.49 each. Got free milk for buying 3. So, $4.47 for all 3 plus milk.

Kroger's version of Kraft delux mac and cheese was on sale for $1.09

Ronzoni Smart Taste elbow macaroni $1.25 (closeout)- $1.00 coupon

Sister Schubert Rolls...$2.50 each minus $1 coupons...$1.50 (these are soooo good)

Kroger Self rising flour $1.99- .45 coupon in the booklet I just got from Kroger in the mail

Glade Lasting Impressions $5.49- $4 coupon

Healthy choice Naturals meal $2.49 minus $1 coupon from Kroger, minus 50 cent coupon from Shortcuts

Bakers Secret cookie sheet $3.49 on sale, minus $2 coupon from Kroger

Duncan Hines cake mix..$1 minus 35 cent coupon, doubled.

3 Johnson's Buddies soaps ($1.09 each) minus $3/3 catalina. Produced a $2.50/3 catalina for buying them.

There really wasn't a lot on the mark down tables. Bummer.

Bertolli frozen dinners are $4.98. This is an incredible price. It includes the oven bakes, too. There is a $2 off coupon here:


Here is a coupon for $5 off of $25 at Rite Aid. This would be good to use when buying your rebate items.


Walgreens has Colgate Total for $3.49 with a $3.49 RR back. If you have the $1 coupon from All You, or the 75 cent coupon from the inserts, this is a money maker. Remember, you can only get 1 RR on the same item per order, and they do not roll. (You cannot use the RR to buy another Colgate total and get another RR to print)

Betty Crocker Cake or brownie mix is 2/$3, and you get a $1 rr when you buy 2. There were also $1/2 coupons out. So, after coupon and RR, they end up being 2/$1

Lipton tea is $1.99 with the in ad coupon. Use the 60 cent coupon from January for some cheap tea!

Oust air sanitizer is $2.99 with $1 rebate. Use the $2 coupon from March to get it free. Limit 4 rebates.

Glade lasting Impressions are free after rebate and $4 coupon.

*note...I do not list all sales, just ones I think are pretty good. Be sure to look at your ad before you go!

My seedlings for my garden are about ready to plant....and it's turned off cold. :( Hopefully this weekend... *sigh* I am anxious for fresh veggies


If you have Mennonites/Amish nearby to where you live that sell goods, check with them. Sometimes they have things early if they have planted in greenhouses. They are a lot cheaper than stores and the produce is fresher. Some of the ones around here also sell homemade jellies and jams, and some even sell baked goods.


I have been buying a lot of breads lately from the grocery on the markdown table. Usually, they have a couple of days left in them. Most can just be heated with dinner and are very cheap. They also come in flavors, etc that you may not make at home.


I did get a good recipe for easy homemade bread..

1 1/4 c warm water
1 package granulated yeast
2 Tbs melted shortening or oil
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt (optional...I did not use it)

Mix and add 2 cups of self rising flour. Beat 200 times with spoon. Add and mix in 1 cup more flour. Pour into greased loaf pan and let rise about 1 hour. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.


Walmart has Green Giant steamers back at $1/bag again. They also have Kraft shredded or block cheese (8oz) for $1.50.

I saw peelies on the 97 cent Glade sprays to get $2 off of Glade Fabric refresher. I bought 2 sprays, using a BOGOF coupon and used 2 peelies on the fabric ended up being about $3.95 for all 4 and I'm a bit of a fabric refresher addict.


There was a refund form in the Unilever insert yesterday for UP TO a $20 refund wyb 1 ham or turkey, and $40 in Unilever products between 4/1 and 4/30. They can be purchased on multiple shopping trips. This is before coupons. You will get a refund for your turkey or ham up to $20

Participating Unilever brands include:
Ben & Jerry’s®
Country Crock®
Good Humor®
Hellmann’s®/Best Foods®
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®
Lever 2000®
Recipe Secrets®

If you did not get this form, I have 1 extra. The first person to email me about it at can have it.


Have a great shopping day!
