This Friday, my Kroger will be running Keebler and Kelloggs 50% off. I have some coupons, and I will be looking for the ones to get the $10 back in rebates.

One of the RR items at Walgreens is Dentek floss or picks. They are $1.99 w/ $1.99 RR back. There was a $1 coupon in Smart Source from Oct, or there is a $1 printable here. Make a $1 profit!

Goody Ouchless Hair accessories $2 Free after RR

Soft and Beautiful Botanicals $5, Free after RR

I've been cheating at lasagna. Now, I make a killer lasagna, but it's time consuming and not cheap, so I've been making this little casserole as a substitute for a while. I get a box of pasta (penne, bowties, whatever) a container of cottage cheese (you can also use ricotta, but it's more expensive and my husband likes cottage cheese better), a can of Hunt's spaghetti sauce, a can of tomatoes, and a package of mozzarella cheese. I also use sausage instead of ground beef, it has more flavor.

I brown the sausage- depending on my mood, I may add some onion. I mix in the spaghetti sauce and the tomatoes. I boil the pasta until al dente. I then layer in a 13x9 dish a little sauce (so the pasta doesn't stick) 1/2 pasta, 1/2 sauce 1/2 cottage cheese. Repeat the layers then put mozzarella on top and bake until it's hot and the cheese is melted. It takes hardly any time at all!


Coupons will be good this weekend. Get extra!

  1. Where did you get all the awesome, high value Frigo Qs from? Great blog.


  2. A while back, I had written them and told them how much I enjoy their products, and they sent me coupons. I also requested to be on their mailing list. So, about a week ago, I got a post card with the 2 coupons on them and an offer for a Frigo head keychain with proof of purchase. It always helps to get on the mailing lists of the products you use most! :)
