Weekly Shopping Trip for 5/29

I had to do my shopping a day early this week because of the holiday.  I also bought some extra things (ice cream, popsicles, etc) that I don't normally buy for a holiday get together.  All in all, I still came in under budget.  Sorry, but I don't have a picture from Walmart.  It was late when I got home and I was just ready to be done with it and finally sit down.  Shopping the day before a holiday is not fun! :) I still need to make a trip to Target so I'll post that trip later.

Monday - Memorial Day family get together

Tuesday - Chicken Tortillizzas (missed this last week), baby carrots

Wednesday - chili dogs, sweet potato fries

Thursday - Enchilada Stuffed Shells, green beans

Friday - hubby gone (we will FFOS - fend for ourselves)

My Shopping Trip 5/27

I ran to Walmart yesterday armed with my Nexcare bandaid coupons only to find that they were all out.  I wasn't really surprised by this since the Q was a PDF that could be printed unlimited times.  Hopefully, they will restock and I can grab them next time.  I went ahead and grabbed a few other things while I was there.  Here is the breakdown:

(1) Pkg Ore-Ida Sweet Potato Fries @ $2.76
(1) Cottonelle wipe tub @ $2.22
(1) 5 ct Zyrtec @ $5.27
(1) Pert Plus travel size @ $.97
(1) KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce @ $.99 (PM from Brookshire's)
total:  $12.21

(1) Free Sweet Potato Fries coupon received by mail
(1) Free Cottonelle tub coupon received by mail
(1) free 5 ct Zyrtec received by mail
(1) $1/1 Pert Plus (no size restriction) insert coupon from 5/15 SS
(1) $1/1 KC Masterpiece insert coupon from 5/15 SS
total spent: $-.04 (and yes, Walmart paid me $.04!)
Total saved:  $12.63 (PM and coupons)

I try to take advantage of free offers anytime I see them.  Facebook is great for finding lots of freebie promos that companies offer.  The blogs that I follow usually point them out.  You can also snag high value coupons from FB promos.  Often times, I miss out (as they limit them) or don't see them until it's too late (as I try not to live on the computer), but sometimes I get lucky!

Search & Win

It's Friday and that means it's Mega Swagbucks Friday!  This means that the odds are better for winning higher amounts of Swagbucks!

It's been a while since I've talked about Swagbucks.  I admit that I, too, was skeptical at first but boy was I wrong!  I just ordered another box of FREE diapers using my Swagbucks gift cards I had earned though Amazon.  I typically earn about $25/month worth of Amazon gift cards.  This is a huge help to my budget!!

Not familiar with Swagbucks?  Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you periodically for searching the internet.  Something you do everyday anyway!  Why not make a little extra money while you're at it! You can also earn Swagbucks by finding codes, watching videos and taking daily polls.  There is even a nifty toolbar that you can download so that searching is always at your fingertips.  I use my points for Amazon gift cards, but there are tons of other prizes available too!   Go here to learn more and to sign up today!

In My Mailbox...

These are the freebies I've gotten in the mail over the last couple of weeks.  Signing up for free samples is a great way to get high value coupons.  I try to only sign up for the samples of things that I would actually use.  I also got several free product coupons.

Here is what I got:
Purex w/Zout sample and Q
Free Gillette Fusion razor and Q
Free sample of Boogie wipes and Q
Free sample of Folger's coffee
Free samples (6 different ones) of Taster's Choice coffee and Q
Free Zone nutrition bar and Q
Free sample of Eucerin lotion and Q
Coupon for a free bag of Ore-Ida Sweet Pototo fries
Coupon for a free bottle of Bob's All Purpose Sauce
Coupon for a free 5 ct. Zyrtec
Coupon for a free tub of Cottonelle wipes

I have no idea what else I've signed up for that I haven't gotten yet!  It's been a busy couple of weeks for my mailman!  It's exciting when the mail comes (I think I might need to get a life!)

Weekly Shopping Trip for 5/22

While I still spent UNDER my budget this week, there were quite a few "extra" things I bought so my total is a little higher than normal at Walmart.  Part of that was the 3 lb. bags of chicken that I price matched!  I did get some good deals, however, with price matching and coupons.

I shopped at Walmart, CVS and Walgreen's this week.  I did go to Target but they were out of the things that I had hoped to pick up.  I doubt that I will make it back there this week.

It was kind of one of those weeks where I found my self out of several things that I needed at the same time.  I try not to let that happen so I don't have to buy it all at once, but the last few weeks have been hairy busy so I wasn't paying attention as much as I normally do.  It happens sometimes!

Trip total:  $56.38
Trip total saved:  $60.35  (a 52% savings!)

Menu Plan Monday for 5/23


School's out for Summer!  At least for us it is.  Now we can slow down a little.  Although summers are packed with lots of fun things around here, we don't have to rush around so much (and we can sleep in a little!) 

Here is our dinner menu for the week:

Monday - Cheeseburger Casserole, steamed broccoli

Tuesday - Stove Top Chicken Bake (tons of this in my stockpile)

Wednesday - out for dinner

Thursday - Mexican Tortillizzas (sort of like a tostado), baby carrots

Friday - Spaghetti, green beans, bread

Saturday - Crunchy Picante Salad

Sunday - Egg Salad BLT

Hay Bale Garden Update #1 - See How the Garden Grows

If you are new here, you can read about the start of my hay bale garden here.  

My hay bale garden is growing right along!    I have tomatoes, squash and peppers (bell and jalapeno) growing great!  I lost a few of my squash plants when my dog decided she needed to "hunt" them!  That's when we added to fence.  This is such an easy garden.  No bending.  No squatting.  No digging.  Water a couple times a day is all that's needed!  (Every few weeks, I'll add a little blood meal to the tops of the bales.)  I even have a few bell peppers already!!  I'm ready to start eating them!!

Friday Featured Recipe

This week, I wanted to give this recipe a try.  However, the list of ingredients was long and some were just unnecessary, I thought.  Most of all I wanted to lighten it up.  I came up with these Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas.  I made them up ahead of time and popped them in the fridge until dinner time.  I served them with a side of rice and sauteed squash and zucchini.  They were delicious and I will certainly file this recipe in my box!!  (Sorry the pic isn't the best.  My camera is acting up.)

Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas
1 frozen chicken breast, cooked and chopped
2 oz. canned, diced green chiles
1 c. frozen corn
2-3 c. fresh spinach, torn into pieces (you could use frozen, but drain it well)
4 oz. mexican shredded cheese
4 oz. cream cheese
salt/pepper to taste
couple dashes onion powder (or chopped onion)
8 medium flour tortillas

1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
chili powder/cumin/onion powder/garlic powder/salt
(just season to your liking)
1/2 c. water to thin
directions: Heat all together, adding more water in needed.  Adjust seasoning if needed. (Sorry I don't have exact measurements on this.  I'm kind of a taste it and see what it needs type of cook!)

Spray skillet with cooking spray.  Stir corn and green chiles over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, until tender.  Add chicken.  Heat through.  Add in seasoning to taste.  Add in spinach and stir until just wilted.  Stir in cheeses and stir until melted.  Place mixture in center of each tortilla and place, seam side down, in sprayed dish.  Bake, uncovered, @ 350 for about 15 minutes (30 min. if made ahead and cold).    Top with sauce.  Bake another 10-15 minutes.

**We had the leftovers for lunch today, and they were just as good reheated.  The best part is that they don't get soggy and fall apart!**

Weekly Shopping Trip for 5/15

I intended to post this yesterday, but it's the last few days of school and things are a bit crazy this week.  The grocery store sales don't change until tomorrow (Wed.) so you can still take advantage of these deals today!

Tomorrow is the last day of school for my son, so I will be able to resume posting more frequently.  I will start posting my weekly menu again each Monday as well.  You'll still have to check out Thrifty Texas Penny for the store matchups!!

My hay bale garden is growing right along!  I'll share some pictures later this afternoon.

Here is the breakdown of my shopping trip:

Normally, I don't shop at Brookshire's for the 1 or 2 things that are on sale that week.  I just price match at Walmart.  This week, however, they had quite a few good deals and I wanted to pick up some produce.  Remember, today is the LAST day you can get these prices.  They will have a new ad starting tomorrow.

(2) Food Club 24 ct tea bag @ $1/ea

(1) Doritos @ $2

total spent:  $14.38
total saved: $7.79 (includes sale and coupon)

Walmart & Dollar Tree

Since the grocery store sales were so good this week , I thought I might be able to get away with not chopping at Walmart.  I was wrong.  I made the trip to Super 1 only to find out that not only were they out of ads (that had in-ad Qs), but the sale items were pretty much gone - and this was on the 2nd day of the sale!  So, I decided that I would wait until my weekly Walmart trip and price match the items I was wanting to stock up on.  And frankly, Walmart is just cheaper on the things I buy every week (milk, etc) that rarely go on sale or have coupons.  So, I guess I'll just have to keep shopping there!

I recently discovered a store that I never really thought about for groceries - Dollar Tree!  And since it shares a parking lot with the Walmart that I shop at, it's a no brainer.  The bread that I normally buy for my family is $2.18 at Walmart.  The same exact bread is $1 at the Dollar Tree (and it's not out of date bread!)  I grabbed some cereal bars and graham crackers there too and spent $3.

Everything in the picture above cost only $35!

Here is the breakdown of the price matching and Qs that I used:

(4) 8.75 oz bags Chex Mix @ $1.33/ea (price match (PM) w/ Walgreen's)
(2) Cheezit's @ $1.50/ea (PM with Super 1 Q)
(10) boxes Kraft mac & cheese @ $.50/ea (PM w/ Super 1 Q)
(1) Peter Pan peanut butter 16.3 oz @ $1.48 (PM w/ Super 1)
(1) Bird's eye family dinner @$3.68
(1) Ken's 8 oz salad dressing @ $1.42
(2) Pictsweet frozen deluxe veggie sides @ $.96/ea
(1) Pepperidge Farm Baked Crackers @ $2.98
(1) Butterball turkey bacon @ $2.38
total: $27.18
(2) $1/2 Chex Mix 4.5 oz or larger from 5/1 SS
(1) $3/1 Bird's Eye printable (from Facebook game)
(1) $1/1 Ken's dressing from 5/8 SS
(1) $.75/2 Pictsweet sides insert Q
(1) $.35/1 Butterball bacon peelie on pkg. (another nice surprise)
(1) $1/1 Pepperidge Farm baked snacks from 4/10 SS
new total: $18.76
Along with the other things I bought:
total spent:  $32
total saved (includes sale, PM, and coupons):  $16.32

I did a 2nd transaction earlier in the day to grab some produce and spinach (didn't have time for my whole trip, but needed it for dinner last night) and spent $3.59.

Total spent this week:  $56.94
Total saved:  $57.50

No Target or Walgreen's this week.

Just a reminder about price matching with coupons:  Please make sure that you check the product size/type stated in the ad and do not rely on the picture alone.  Often, the product picture and size/type stated do not match.  Also, if you are using a coupon as well, please check to make sure that it matches the product description.

I have skimmed though the sale ads for next week and it looks like there are a lot of good deals at Super 1 and Brookshire's.  I am challenging myself to buy VERY LITTLE at Walmart next week and shop those store for the sales!  There are a few things that I can still get cheaper (milk!) at Walmart.  I would love to only have to stop at Walmart for that and not have to price match!  We'll see how it goes!

I decided to run to Target and check out the clearance toys this afternoon.  My son's birthday is coming up and he loves Lego's.  Lego's, at full price, are very expensive.  I was hoping a set that I had seen on clearance a few weeks ago would be cheaper (and still in stock) today.  I was so excited that they still had them and that they were marked 75% off!!  I also grabbed a few other things too.

Weekly Shopping Trip for 5/1

For those of you that were able to attend the coupon class last night, it was so nice to meet all of you!  We had a great turnout and Cricket of Thrifty Texas Penny did an awesome job of making sense of the crazy world of couponing and Walgreen's!!  I learned a few things too!  Cricket has all the CVS and Walgreen's matchups ready for next week so head over to her site and take a peek.  Don't forget to check out the Brookshire's matchups and weekly menu from Julie at Pary Moppins, too.

If you haven't already, go check out the Tyler Area Coupon Club on Facebook.  Pamela scours the stores for all the local deals and passes the info on to you!
