Bring chili, rotel and pinto beans to a boil in a dutch oven pan or something big:) Turn down heat and add whipping cream and Velveeta and stir until Velveeta melts in.

Peter Pan PB coupon

In today's KC star on the last page of the 1st section there is a .50/1 coupon for Peter Pan peanut butter! I wanted to make sure nobody missed it... I almost did!

Walgreens Trip

I did 2 transactions at Walgreens today:

1 Fusion Gamer Razor=8.99
-4/1 couopn from today's P&G insert
Total=5.66 (after tax) and I got a $6 RR back= overage of .36 cents!

2 Scrubbing bubbles wipes=$5
2 Windex wipes=$5
1 Dawn dish soap=.99 (after in -ad coupon)
1 3 ct pack of Trident gum=1.50 (after in-ad coupon) (this was a needed filler)
-$6 RR from previous transaction (always use these FIRST!)
-3/2 Scrubbing bubbles coupon
-2 1.50/1 windex coupons=-$3
.50/1 Dawn coupon (from a mailer I got a while ago)
Total=-.01 plus tax=.92 cents!!!

I will get back $4 for ESR #30 for buying the Scrubbing bubbles and Windex and I will also get back $5.00 in MIR for the Windex. The MIR is 1 per household ($2.50 per bottle) so what I did is I asked for 2 receipts and I will send in one from my address and 1 from moms (with her permission of course).

Total for the day=overage of $3.50!!!

***Remember at Walgreens you always give coupons in this order: RR first, MF coupons second and Walgreens ES or in-ad coupons last!
