only WHILE SUPPLIES LAST...means...

there are NO RAINCHECKS...When they run out
they run out!
So RUN OUT, now, to your local Albertsons...
Here's what you can get...I did it twice in the
same transaction with no questions, or problems...
Buy 1 5pk of Macaroni and Cheese-
they are BOGO this week...
on the side of the package you will find a
coupon for a FREE pkg of Caprisun SUNRISE...
which is a new YUMMY product.
so for the price of ONE Mac and cheese pack-
my store price was 6.29
I got 1 pack of mac n cheese FREE
and 2 Caprisun sunrise-FREE
doing it twice my total for the pic above was
for 20 boxes and 4 drinks...
sounds like I rambled a little.
Go, RUN! go get YOU some...
good luck...while supplies last only!
***and, a 2$ Catalina printed out
so I can use it on my next order of any
amount at Albertsons...

a little organizing bug

This is the before picture...

this is the AFTER pic of my downstairs bathroom.

I have to say that I caught a little organizing bug
from my friend, Jenn. she's doing some
EXTREME re-organizing at her house...every
closet, every room, pantry, every space.
I'm just trying to do ONE space a week.
so here's my first attempt.
Thanks for the KICK in the pants, Jenn!
More room for Stockpiling! YAY!

AHHHHH...I need a good deal....

on trash bags. i've been waiting to
see something amazing...i guess I'll
break down and pick up a HUGE box
at Sams tomorrow, that'll last me forever.
My recyclables are piling up in my
kitchen, and if you saw what little space
I have in my kitchen, you'd really
FEEL for me. I have some great Glad
coupons, b3g1FREE, just wanted them to
be on sale.
Happy Earth days, and deal days! to you!

I love getting deals---with my FLEX card

Albertson's has a great deal for medicine.
spend 30$ on participating items, earn a 10$
catalina on your next purchase.
I had coupons for all tylonels and the motrin.
total was 38.xx

I turned around and used the 10$Cat right away.
Bought 2 4pk TP
1 Lg. Poptart
1 Quaker Chewy granola bars
1 nutrigrain box
1 box Capri Suns
paid 3.21 OOP, so basically I got everything in
this picture for free.
THE BONUS- My Flex pay account is money
I don't ever feel. It is an medical spending acct
set up thru hubby's work. They pull out the
pre-determined amount (we chose) every paycheck-and
it's all PRE-TAX dollars...woohoo.
We use this flex acct for co-pays, prescriptions and
over the counter meds and first aid kits, etc.
So convienient, never have to worry if there's money in
that account...
it's taken me a long time to realize that i can use this
card to EARN deals. (FREE money for
for me.) thanks for reading...

Sweet treat

I am really sick of making these muffins twice
a week, so I made a double batch today. :)
so easy.
My kids looove these. My 6 yo takes 1-2 in his
lunch instead of a traditional sandwich.
ah-ha moment. I should make some sort of muffin/
quiche that can be taken in a lunch bag with
more traditional lunch items in cheese and ham?
I wonder if that would work? gonna check into that.
any way- these are
Banana muffins, I add 1/4 bag choc chips per
batch so the kids will eat them. They are so
give it a try. Delicious, quick, easy breakfast
on the go, too.

Yummy Salsa Chicken and Bean Soup

Picture is weird. don't know why the corn never
sank to the bottom of the pot.
The greatest thing about this recipe is there is
NO chopping and dicing. FABULOUS.

The problem was, I acted like a complete idiot,
using my thumb to pull the lid of a can up, and I
cut myself. It doesn't look bad in the pic, but MAN!
did it hurt.
Go check out CROCKPOT 365. She's amazing.
you're sure to find some fabulous and NOT dangerous
recipes there.
P.S. My hubby and I looooved this soup.

No ECB deals at SoCal CVS this month!

I didn't even notice this. so THANK YOU to
A Dollar Here, a Dollar There for the 411. Go check
out her blog to find out more.
So, if you have ECBs, go spend them. We can't be
roll them this month, I guess.
But keep clipping your coupons. There are still
so many great deals out there this week.
I've been to:
and Stater Bros.
only thing I didn't get on sale was
frozen chicken breasts/tenders.
Maybe Wednesday there will be
better deals for that.

My GO-TO Dinner

When I'm in a pinch for time, this is
my family's go to dinner. My kids
LOOOOVE this one. I think I have
6 of this flavor, and like 10 of the
other flavors. But, THIS one is thier
I added a green salad and for my hubby
and I, we put the mix into tortillas.
(A little more filling, and leaves more
helpings for my kiddos.) Did I say how much
they looooove this? I usually serve
raw carrots and ranch, too, but forgot
last night.
It's definately not the most healthful meal,
with 320 calories per serving and 29% sodium,
but it's not terrible.
Thanks Betty Crocker! for giving me an easy
out on crazy days, for being tasty, and not too
expensive. This meal cost me about 2.75 total.
When on sale at WALMART for .75 cents
you can usually get them for .50cents a box.
That's STOCKPILE time in my Price Point BOOK.
Go HERE to see the current Betty Crocker Coupons.

So there you have it, my cheap and easy
Now you know ALL my secrets. ;)
