AND...I have NEVER cooked a whole chicken! If you have a good recipe or link will you post it for me and I am sure some others who would love to try their hand at a whole chicken too? :)

Garage Sales?

Since I am a frugal nut and all I LOVE garage sales! I especially love neighborhood ones where I can get most of what I am looking for in one area instead of driving all around town. I guess I also stop at randoms too because you just never know what you might find:)

That being said I would like to offer to post a garage sale list every Thursday evening in the Spring. If you are personally hosting one or you know of any garage sales going on please feel free to email me at and I would be happy to post it. Please include some info as well so we know what to expect.


Caribou Coffee Deal!

I have learned that every month our Hy-Vee Caribou Coffee store in Topeka has a special going on Saturdays. For the month of March they are offering 1/2 off of a whole bean purchase! Pretty sweet deal!

Also they have a happy our from 4-7 everyday where they offer $1 off your drink.

SwagBucks Secret

Search & Win
I started Swagbucks back in October and the more I search with Swagbucks the more I realize how easy it is to win "bucks"! I just recently discovered a little secret...

If you download the Swagbucks toolbar and use it for your searches you will earn 1-2 swagbucks a day just for doing so. Now I know that doesn't sound like a lot but it is better than nothing!

Also don't forget there are such things as swagcodes that can be found on the Swagbucks blog, twitter and even their facebook page! These are codes you can enter on your account page and get instant bucks!

If you haven't signed up yet you might consider it. It is so EASY! You can sign up HERE!



From Gap's Facebook page:

Gap has a pretty cool promotion going on, they are partnering with Cotton Incorporated to turn your out-of-shape, old denim into cotton insulation for those in need.

Dillons FAQ

Here is a sum of what I know regarding Dillons and coupons. Let me know if you have questions or can think of something else you would like included. Thanks!

Dillons Plus Card:
This is their customer loyalty card. You don't have to have this card but if you want the sale price, the gas discount they offer, use e-coupons and if you want to receive the benefits of double coupons having this card is a must. You can get this card by going to the customer service counter at your store.


What kind do they take?
You are able to use manufacturers coupons at Dillons. These coupons can be found in the Sunday paper (for my region I recommend the KC star) or online at various sites. If there is a printable coupon available for a product I will provide the link. You can also use e-coupons at Dillons as well. E-coupons are manufacturer coupons also that are available from sites such as Cellfire and Shortcuts. These are coupons that can be downloaded directly to your Dillons plus card and are automatically taken off your total when you buy an item that has a corresponding coupon loaded to your card. Take note that after you down load coupons to your shoppers card it takes about 3 hours before that coupon is actually ready to be used.
Do they double coupons?
Yes, Dillons doubles ALL COUOPNS up to $1! This means that any coupon .50 or less is doubled in value. For all coupons .55 and over they are doubled to a $1. So if you have a .50 or higher coupon it is an automatic $1 off. For couons that are valued more than $1 what you see is what you get. So if it is a $1.25/1 coupon then you only get $1.25 off. They even double the coupons that say don't double/triple. Their computers do it automatically. They have no cap per transaction so you can use as many coupons per transaction as you wish.

What about expired coupons?
I do not recommend that you practice using expired coupons. It is important that we as couponers make sure the companies we are using them at are being treated fairly and ethically. When expired coupons are used we run the risk of cheating the company. In other words that company may not get reimbursed for the expired coupon used thus causing them to loose money and in return to us we don't see as many great deals! Now having said that I will tell you that many Dillons stores will gladly accept expired coupons 14 days past the expiration date. Simply check with your store before using expired coupons.

Catalinas are coupons that are printed from the machine next to the register. They are called catalina because that is the name of the company that prints them. These are also manufacturer coupons and if they are valued at less than a $1 they will double. You can read more about catalina coupons HERE!

Dillons specific coupons:
These are sent to you by Dillons. You should automatically receive these if you have a shopper's card. However many times this is not the case so you need to call the # on the back of your card and request to start receiving Dillons mailer coupons. You will get store coupons that are good only at Dillons and you will get manufacturer coupons as well.

Competitor Coupons:
Dillons does not accept other store coupons or Catalina coupons.

Remember it is a 1 to 1 ratio. You can only use 1 coupon per # of items state on the coupon. So if it is a $/1 coupon then you can use it on 1 item. If it is a $/2 coupon then you must purchase 2 items to use the coupon and you can not use another coupon on those 2 items.

Right Price Guarantee:
ALWAYS CHECK YOUR RECEIPT! You should do this at every store but the great thing about Dillons is if an item you bought rang up higher than the posted price (pay attention to what you are paying) Dillons Customer Service will refund you the full amount of the product you bought. So in other words you end up getting that item FREE! If you bought more than one of a particular item and were mis-charged for all of them you will still get reimbursed the full amount for one and you will be refunded the difference on the others. I have saved so much money just by looking at my receipt!

Note: If you catch that the item was not rung up at the right price during the transaction then tell your cashier rather than waiting. It is just good ethics to do so.

Coupon Language:
If you are confused about a term I use please read my post here. If you questions isn't answered feel free to email me!

Facebook FREEBIES!

*NOTE: These went quick... they are already out... BUMMER!**

Have you noticed all the Facebook FREEBIES lately? Companies are starting to advertise much more on facebook and as a result it means FREEBIES for us! I have received many $/$$ coupons and coupons for FREE items. Some brands include Nabisco, Orea and Wheat Thins!

Cooking with Split Chicken Breasts

It is true that the 1st time I ever cooked a split chicken breast was just last week! I have always been a total chicken snob (I blame my mother) but my frugality got the better of me when I saw them on sale for only .88/lb. at Apple Market a few weeks back.

In my quest to figure out what to do with these things I happened upon $5 I loved her post about split chicken breasts. I could totally relate to her story and I loved her idea!
So today I am encouraging you to take a peek at her post HERE because I thought it was great!

I didn't end up using her recipe because I found it after the fact, but my chicken still turned out pretty good. I cooked 5 breasts total and ended up with enough chicken for 3 meals. I could have had more but pulling cooked meat off the bone was grossing me out... not gonna lie! I am sure I will get better with time:)

The recipes I will be using my chicken for are Cheesey Chicken and Rice Casserole, Chicken Tortilla Soup and Chicken and Noodles. Now you may have noticed that I don't have a link for the chicken and noodles recipe. That is because I don't have a good one. If you have you want to share please feel free to do so!

I am a Coffee Lover!

It's true I love coffee and I also love my creamer too! So I am excited to share these coupons with you! Just go to HERE to print the following coupons:
  • Save $0.75/1 on Any Coffee Mate Liquid or powder product
  • Buy 1 Get 1 Free on Coffee Mate Stick Packs.
Thanks Smart Couponing!

A Quick Note...

It has come to my attention in the past few months that I am need of taking care of what I will call "bloggy business." I really don't like doing this but it needs to be done:(

First, I need to tell you that anything written on this blog whether in a personal post or a grocery post is copy written information. It is not good blogging etiquette to copy partial or whole posts with out permission (read this post here for more info!). My grocery posts are all original posts. That means I take the time every week to look at the ad and use the knowledge I have in compiling what I think are the best deals for the week. The only other site I use when compiling my grocery posts is this site here which will tell me if there is a coupon for a particular item. This site is always included in my weekly posts so I make sure I am giving credit where it is due.

Second, If you want to post grocery deals I totally welcome you to post what you think are the best 3-5 deals for the week (for any store I do) and then link back to me for the rest if my blog is where you get your information. I do ask that you email me and let me know you are doing this so I keep track of where my traffic is coming from.

I apologize if this seems abrupt but it seems that new blogs are popping up all over the place which is great, but I also need to protect my almost 2 year old blog that I started in May of 2008... it is like a 3rd child after all:)

Thanks for reading!

Menu Plan Monday 3/8 edition

Wow I can't believe it really is March. We actually pulled our grill out on Saturday evening because it was SO NICE! Hopefully more of that to come! For this week here is my plan:

Saturday: Grilled hamburgers and hot dogs with spinach salad and chips
Sunday: Left over hamburgers and hot dogs, crackers with cream cheese, and spinach salad
Monday: Chicken Tortilla soup, homemade bread
Tuesday: Skillet lasagna, left over bread and green beans
Wednesday: Meat Loaf with mashed potatoes and corn
Thursday: BBQ pulled pork sandwiches (used recipe out of Better Homes and Garden cook book), raw veggies and crackers
Friday: Whatever you can find... no pizza this week because are leaving for TX the next morning!

I have to confess that this past week I did something that I never thought I would do. I bought split chicken breasts. Now this may not sound like a big deal, but for me it is:) I grew up eating boneless breasts only so this was a new adventure. I will post a great recipe I used for these and the meals I plan on making with my chicken tomorrow!
