There aren't too many deals in this week's ad, but the June EasySaver period begins on Friday (the EasySaver booklet is available here), so you can start picking up June rebate items. There are also a few overlapping May/June deals, which I plan to post about later today. And don't forget to grab any remaining May rebate items you're lacking. (If you use online rebate submission, it shouldn't be a problem to have May and June items on the same receipt.)

Make-it-Yourself Monday: Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberries are in season and it's a great time to try new recipes. Following is a strawberry shortcake recipe I love--I've had it for quite some time, but just now rediscovered where I picked it up: Tammy's Recipes. For the original recipe and lots of other amazing treats, check out Tammy's website.

Whole-Wheat Strawberry Shortcake

4 eggs, separated
3/4 cup sugar, divided
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound (about 2 cups) fresh strawberries, washed and sliced
1 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1. In a large bowl with electric mixer at high speed, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Continue beating at high speed and add 1/4 cup sugar, about 2 tablespoonfuls at a time. Beat well after each addition, until sugar is completely dissolved and egg whites stand in stiff peaks.

2. In another mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the egg yolks, flour, water, oil, baking powder, vanilla, and 1/2 cup of sugar. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the flour mixture into the beaten egg whites until completely blended. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9-inch springform pan or two smaller round cake pans.

3. Bake cake at 325 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the top of the cake springs back when lightly touched with finger and cake tests done. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before removing from pan. The cake will sink slightly as it cools.

4. Beat whipping cream in a chilled bowl on high until soft peaks form. Add a tablespoon of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and continue beating until cream is stiff.

5. To serve, spread the whipped cream over the cake. Top with strawberries. Cut into slices and serve! Or, cut into slices and top each slice with whipped cream and strawberries just before serving.

Make-it-Yourself Monday: Crepes

Crepes are a lovely treat and homemade ones can be delicious. With strawberries in season now, it's a great time to serve up crepes with whipped cream and strawberries. Or use your creativity to come up with other tantalizing fillings. The following recipe was originally from Recipezaar.


1 1/2 c. milk
1 c. flour
2 eggs
1 T. oil
2 T. sugar

1. Mix together milk, eggs, oil and sugar.

2. Add flour until combined.

3. Heat a nonstick skillet on high. Remove from heat, pour 1/4 cup batter onto skillet, tilt pan to spread batter.

4. When crepe is dry on top, turn onto paper towels. Repeat steps with remaining batter.

5. Serve with fruit, whipped cream, syrup, anything! If you want savory crepes, omit the sugar in the recipe.

Creative gas-saving tips

With gas prices steadily rising, it's a good time to re-evaluate driving habits--both how much you drive and how you drive. I read a blog post this morning that got me thinking... I don't plan to implement the Pulse and Glide technique in its entirety, but the concept does intrigue me.

Here are some other fuel-efficiency tips the article mentioned:

  • Driving slower
  • Coasting to stoplights, stop signs and parking spots
  • Accelerating slowly from stops
  • Keeping windows and sunroof closed
  • Parking in pull-through spots
  • Clearing out my trunk
To read the original post in its entirety, click here. How are you dealing with the increase in gas prices?

Edit: Please do consider safety concerns before implementing something like the Pulse and Glide technique! As I said, the concept intrigues me, but turning off your engine while on the highway sounds more like a hazard than money-saving brilliance. :-)

Longs drug store: Huggies

Since I'm not personally familiar with Longs, I don't generally post deals for them. However, I'm happy to pass on the deals others share. Here's what Charlene had to say about the sales this week...

I have been finding some great deals at Longs lately and the stores are so nice and quiet (and well stocked) compared to Walgreens, Target and Walmart.

In this week's ad they have Huggies Bath products, lotions or wipes for 1.99- with a $1 mail in rebate. I have never done rebates there but thought I'd give it a chance since $1.99 is a great price to begin with- minus the .50/1 or $1/1 coupons out there. Rebate is a max of 2 on Huggies but there are also rebates this month for Kandoo, Huggies diapers, Pampers, Avent btls and Formula.

Thanks, Charlene!

Albertsons: All detergent

Thanks to Jill for the alert on this deal:

Yesterday I went to Albertson’s & used the Fred Meyer coupon for the 2.99 All Small & Mighty [I'm assuming Albertson's takes competitor's coupons and that's why this works]. I combined it with the $1 off coupon & got them for 1.99 each… However, today in the new Albertson’s ad, if you buy 5 Alls for $15, they take off $5 at the register, making them $2 apiece [$1 after the coupon]! So I went and printed more coupons so I can go back & stock up for $1 apiece!

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

Target store coupon deals

There are reportedly a couple of current deals to be had with printable Target coupons.

Small packages of Archer Farms coffee are reportedly priced at $1. There are printable Target coupons for $1 off Archer Farms coffee, making it free. This coupon expires 6/7/08.

Some have also found small packages of Archer Farms trail mix clearanced to $.48 each. There are printable Target coupons for $.50/1 Archer Farms trail mix or nuts, so this would be free as well. This coupon also expires 6/7/08.

You can print the coupons from the Target website, at the registry kiosk in Target stores (on their penny), or (in easy multiples) from the Hot Coupon World coupon generator (must be signed in).

Free ice cream and pretzels

Haagen-Dazs ice cream from Money Saving Mom:

To celebrate their new flavor, Vanilla Honey Bee, Haagen-Dazs ice cream shops are offering a free scoop on May 13, 2008 from 4-8 PM. More details here.

Be sure to call your shop ahead of time to make sure they are participating in this special offer!

Aunt Annie's pretzels from Hey, It's Free:

From May 10th through June 12th, if you’re at the mall and find yourself by an Aunt Annie’s Pretzel, text the word “pretzel” to the number 70734. You’ll then get a coupon good for a free Aunt Annie’s Pretzel. And you can do this one time a day! Seriously! So why not just head daily for a pretzel, you know? Instead of a coffee break, have a pretzel break. If you work at the mall, don’t meet your co-workers at the water cooler, meet them at the pretzel stand–which is an autonomous unit for mid-mall snacking, mind you.

Offer only valid at participating locations (which will have signs reminding people of the codes and numbers), standard text messaging rates apply.

Make-it-Yourself Monday: Sweet Southern Tea

Thanks to Suzanne for sharing this weeks' Make-it-Yourself Monday idea.

Sweet Southern Tea

6 regular tea bags
6 C. water
2 C. sugar

Bring tea bags and water to a rolling boil. Let boil for 15 seconds. Steep for five to ten minutes. Put sugar into gallon pitcher and add hot tea. Stir vigorously until sugar is dissolved. Add water until pitcher is full. Chill.

Day-to-day coupon organization

As a follow-up to the post about my coupon box, here's how I handle coupons each week... at least in theory! :-)

1. Clip all coupons from the Sunday newspaper inserts.

2. Decide which ones to keep. The ones I'm not keeping, I put in a pile to mail to military families.

3. Sort by category. I also arrange mine by expiration date, so that the coupons expiring first are always in the front. It makes it simpler when I'm discarding expireds or attempting to use up coupons.

Coupon organization

I recently mentioned that I was renewing my coupon organization, and thought I'd share my system. There are lots of great ideas out there, but this is what has worked for me.

1. Obtain a small plastic box and plastic file dividers (as pictured).

2. Make a list of coupon categories. You'll have to decide how technical to get--mine are rather general: Canned, Dairy, Meals, Mouth, Hair, etc.

3. Separate categories into Food and Non-food. Alphabetize Food and Non-food categories separately.

4. Label plastic dividers with category names (I keep my Food coupons in front, Non-food in the back).

5. Put your name and phone number on the inside cover of your coupon file. I've heard way too many "lost coupon box" stories... :-)

How do you organize your coupons? What helps you stay on top of it?

Extremely Frugal tips

One of the blogs in my Google feed reader is Extremely Frugal, where Pat shares frugality tips for everyday life. Here a few recent ideas:

Grow garlic on a windowsill

Garlic will grow happily in a container on your windowsill. Buy fresh garlic from the grocery store and use the largest cloves to plant. Put the unpeeled clove, pointed side up, in light soil with the tip just showing. Keep the soil damp and in a few days you should see a green shoot. You can use this shoot as a mild garlic flavoring (Give it time to grow at least six inches first, then trim only a few inches at a time. If you don't trim this top, it might become quite long and topple over - that's ok. When it turns brown and dries up, dig the clove of garlic you planted and you should have a full bulb. Take a clove from that and start over! (Container grown garlic will make small cloves.)

Keeping a broom

Never stand a broom on its bristles. Hang it upside down on a rack or nails. Clean it when you've used it for real dirt - garage floors or sidewalks. Use a bucket with warm, soapy water, swish the broom in it several times, then rinse with clear water. Hang it to dry.


Freebies are frugal! The internet is a fantastic way to sleuth them out. Toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo and coffee samples can help stretch your budget. Don't be wasteful with them just because they're free. Use them carefully and put off the time when you'll have to replace the item.

Be sure to check out more tips on Pat's website.

Walgreens: Beginner's Q&A

I have received a number of requests to post a Walgreens beginner's guide, and would appreciate some input from you, my readers. What questions do you have about shopping at Walgreens and working the deals? What was confusing to you when you were just beginning--terms, techniques, etc.? What have you learned that you'd like to pass on to someone else who beginning to shop Walgreens?

Thanks in advance for your input! :-)

Organize your coupons! :-)

I've let myself get a bit behind on clipping and organizing coupons the last couple months. I had the fliers, but my "system" had kind of gone out the window. So one morning last week, I took a couple of hours to go through my entire coupon box, eliminate expireds, and clip and organize the valid coupons.

I didn't get it completely finished, but it was far better, and provides needed motivation to keep my coupon box organized. It's so much easier to maintain a system that's already in place than to attempt to deal with a sloppy mess.

My challenge to you is to set a time to go through your coupons, eliminate the expired ones, and organize the ones that are still good. There's no point in saving coupons unless you can use them! :-)

And while you're getting rid of coupons, consider passing them on to members of the military who can use them.

Make-it-Yourself Monday: Sweet & Spicy Relish

Garden season is beginning--here's a relish recipe to get you in the mood for using your produce. :-)

Sweet & Spicy Relish

12 C. grated zucchini or cucumber
4 C. chopped onions
1 C. chopped red pepper
1 C. chopper green pepper
1 chopped jalapeno (alter to personal preference)
5 T. pickling salt
5 C. sugar
3 C. cider vinegar
1 T. mustard
1/2 T. celery seed
1 t. pepper
3/4 t. turmeric

In large glass or ceramic bowl, combine zucchini, onions, peppers, and salt. Cover and chill overnight. Drain in colander and rinse under cold running water. In a kettle, combine sugar, vinegar, mustard, celery seed, pepper, and turmeric. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add zucchini and peppers. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Pack into pint jars, leaving 1/4" head space. Process in hot water bath for 20 minutes. Makes about 7 pints.

Sunday paper

The P&G Saver comes out in this week's paper and is reported to have coupons that will work great with this week's Walgreens sale (see forthcoming post). If you have a chance to pick up a couple extra papers, it might be worth your while.

Walgreens deals: May 4-10

This week's Walgreens deals sound fabulous, but my fading brain can't quite do them justice. Here are some highlights from this week's ad, and I'll plan to update this post when I have more brain power. :-)

Wednesday, May 7 only: Free 8x10 photo enlargement. Use in-ad coupon.

Zantac Cool Mint 8 ct: 3.99; produces $3 RR; use $5/1 printable coupon (will probably need to be adjusted down). Final cost: Profit

Gillette Venus Embrace: 9.99, produces $6 RR; use with $4/1 coupon from 5/4 paper insert. Final cost: Free.

Ascensia Breeze 2 Blood Glucose Monitoring System: 9.99; send in for manufacturer's rebate. Final cost: Free

Post Chocolate Honey Bunches of Oats: 1.99; use with $2/1 printable coupons--and this one, this one, and this one. Final cost: Free.

Dawn dish soap
: .79 with in-ad coupon; use with .25/1 from 4/6 paper. Final cost: .54

The big news for the week is the P&G Register Rewards deal. It gets a bit complicated, but here's the gist of it: Get $4 RR when you buy 3 participating products, $6 RR when you buy 4, $10 when you buy 5, or $20 when you buy 9. There are numerous coupons to combine with this deal--and more coming in Sunday's P&G Saver. Briefly, if you do a transaction with nine items, you get back $2.22 per item--so anything with a cost less than $2.22 will earn you profit. Following are some coupon match-ups to help get you started. What else do you see?

Cascade Action Packs: 2/$5; use $1/2 coupon from 4/6 P&G. Cost after RR: Profit

Charmin Freshmates: 1.99; use .25 coupon from 4/6 P&G. Cost after RR: Profit

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, cleaner, or wipes: 2/$5; use .50 coupons from P&G Solutions mailer. Cost after RR: Profit

Crest Pro-Health toothpaste: 2/$5; use $3/2 IVC (there are also several different manufacturer's coupons floating around--some have been found at dentists' offices). Cost after RR: Profit

Cover Girl cosmetics: BOGO1/2. Use with BOGO or $1/1 coupon from 4/6 paper insert or B3G1 coupon from 5/4. If this promo runs the same way the Suave deal did a few weeks ago, buying 6 items will give you credit for 9, thus producing a $20 RR.

May FAR deals:

Walgreens Maxi Pads, 12 to 24 pack, up to $1.99.

EARinse Ear Cleansing Spray, 1 oz, up to $9.99

Walgreens Standard Light Bulbs, 4 pack, up to $1.69

Kickers Energy Spray, 7 oz, up to $3.29

Oral-B CrossAction Toothbrush, up to $4.99; use .75 coupon from the 4/6 P&G newspaper insert. Profit: $.75

It's RSS Awareness Day!

If you're not yet familiar with RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds, this is a great time to learn: It's RSS Awareness Day.

For those who are wondering what in the world an RSS feed is, here's a quick explanation: If you like staying up-to-date on several blogs, but want to save time, you can subscribe to a "feed," or content subscription. Your feeds will be complied into the reader of your choice, such as Google Reader. The result is that you're able to check all of your feeds from one central location, rather than having to drop by each blog to check for updates. For a more technical explanation of feeds, visit What Is RSS?
