Dillon's 12/26-1/1

Well the Dillon's ad is only 2 pages this week and is good through next Thursday January 1st. There are a few deals worth mentioning:
  • Fresh Ground Beef=2.19/lb. (I prefer to buy this at 1.99/lb but if you are in need this is not a bad deal.)
  • Doritos and Keebler townhouse crackers are 2.18/1. (not a bad price for Doritos and you can use a 1/2 Keebler coupon to get these crackers for 1.68/box.)
  • Hamburger buns are 10/10
  • Avocados are 10/10
  • Bar-S hot dogs are 10/10
  • Farmland roll or link sausage is 1.59/1 (Use any coupon from the Farmland mailer and get these for .59/1!)
  • Hillshire Farm or Kroger little smokies are 4/10 or 2.50/1 (This is the same as the Aldi price. Use 1/2 Hillshire coupon to get that brand for 2/1!!!- it may also give you a .75/off your next purchase catalina back (wyb 2)which would sweeten the deal!)
  • Hormel boneless pork lions are BIGI free with prices starting at 8.99
That is all I see for this week. Let me know of anything I missed. Also be sure to check out the Hy-Vee deals for the week! The Apple Market also has a few great deals of their own so be sure to head over to Cara's blog for those!

Hy-Vee for 12/24-12/30

Below are the best deals I see for this week.  My goal is to always find things that beat or are close to the Aldi price since Aldi is considered "the cheapest" grocery store.  From the looks of it Hy-Vee has quite a few items this week that may keep you shopping there instead of Aldi!
  • 2.5 lb. bags of Country Pride frozen chicken breasts=4.99 (Aldi price for a 3 lb. bag is 6.29 I think)
  • Hy-Vee selected varieties of shredded cheese are 1.68/1 (beats Aldi price!)
  • Kraft Velveeta shells and cheese or Kraft deluxe mac and cheese dinner=3/$5 or 1.66/1 (Aldi price is 1.29/1 for the off brand)
  • Post Cereal is 5/$10 or $2/1 (The Aldi price ranges from 1.68/1-1.89/1 for their off brand)
  • Betty Crocker pizza crust or corn  muffin mix=3/$1 or .33/1 (This is about the Aldi price)
  • Hy-Vee 8 oz. blocks of cream cheese are .89/1 (beats the Aldi price of 1.09/1!)
  • Hy-Vee 15 oz. kidney or chili style beans are 2/$1 (Aldi price is .45/1)
  • Hy-Vee sloppy joe sauce is .78/1
  • 24 oz. tub of Hy-Vee cottage cheese=1.49/1 (beats the Aldi price of 2.12/1)
  • Cara Cara Navel oranges are .99/lb. (.99/lb. for any fruit is a GREAT buy!)
  • Fresh green beans are .99/lb.
  • Tangelos are .99/lb.
  • Limes or Lemons are 4/$1 (GREAT DEAL!)
  • Grimway 3 lb. bag of baby carrots=2.88/1 (1 lb. bags at Aldi are .99/1 so this beats the Aldi price!)
  • 10 bag of russet potatoes=2.99/1 (usually this would beat the Aldi price of 3.79 but this week Aldi's 10 pound bags are only 1.99!)
  • Select varities of pears are 1.18/lb.
  • Country Fair frozen veggies are .98/1 (Aldi price is .99/1)
In-ad coupons
  • Dole bunches of celery=.59/1
  • BIGI fresh packages of 8 ct. hamburger buns
  • Hy-Vee brand 32 oz. ketchup=.99 (beats Aldi price of 1.19)
  • Hunts 26 oz. cans of spaghetti sauce=.78 (these are usually $1 or more!)
  • Betty crocker muffin brownie or biscuit mix=2/$1
  • Hy-Vee refried beans=2/$1 (Aldi price is .45/1)
If you think something is a good deal and I failed to mention it please let us know about it in the comment section.

Note: The Dillons ad will be up Friday so see you back here then!

21st and Fairlawn Markdowns!

A friend was at the Dillons at 21st and Fairlawn today and noticed they had a lot of markdowns on yogurt. Brands included were FiberOne, Yo-Plus and Danimals. They were marked to 1.49/1. Use 1/1 coupons on any of these to get them for .49/1!!!

Inexpensive Sticky Buns Recipe!

As a child my husband's grandmother always made her version of sticky buns on Christmas morning. In honor of her and my husband's tradition I have decided to carry it into our family. I got the recipe yesterday and just had to share this way to easy inexpensive recipe with you!

Sticky Buns: Serves 3-4
  • 1/3 C. brown sugar (1 bag costs .99 at Aldi so I will guess on the high side that 1/3c. costs roughly .15 cents)
  • 3 tbsp. butter (use margarine to make this cheaper, 1 stick costs maybe .15 cents so 3 tbsp. is roughly .05 cents)
  • 1/3 c. chopped pecans (1 1/2 c. bag=2.50 at Aldi so 1/3 c. costs around .65 cents)
  • 1tbsp. water (maybe a pennie?:)
  • 1 can of SMALL refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (.33 cents at Aldi)
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (pennies)
In a microwaveable bunt pan (or round pan with something in the middle to create a bunt pan) combine brown sugar, water and butter. Microwave uncovered for 1 minute or until melted. Stir in nuts and cinnamon. Cut each biscuit into quarters and add to mixture- try to coat them all evenly. Microwave uncovered for 2 1/2 minutes or until biscuits are no longer doughy. Let it stand 2 minutes and then turn over onto a round plate and serve.

All together this delicious Christmas morning breakfast will cost about $1.15 to make or .28 cents to .38 cents a serving!

I'm Back


I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I wanted to let you know I am back and will resume regular posting. It may be a little sporadic with the Christmas holiday but I will do my best to alert you to any great deals.

One thing I did want to suggest to you all is to get your coupons organized now while you might have some spare time. I say this because last year at the start of the new year the papers were overloaded with TONS of coupon inserts the 1st couple of weeks of January. Smartsource and Redplum both had many EXTRA coupons in them!

I also will not be doing Menu Plan Monday this week since there is not much to plan for on my end. I hope you all enjoy your week and don't forget the FREEBIE sale at CVS ends today! Make sure you get rain checks if they are out of items... I got 14!
