Shopping and Dinner June 29, 2011

Posted by Brooke on June 30, 2011 in Good Eats, Shopping trips

I gather to do this right you’re supposed to plan ahead and stock pile, but I don’t really see myself ever breaking the habit of almost-daily-pre-dinner grocery shopping. Jared had whipped up some sandwich buns last night so the goal was veggie sloppy joes. I was all excited to use a veggie meat coupon I […]

Couponing Cuisine

Posted by Brooke on June 29, 2011 in Good Eats

What good would couponing be if you never got anything you wanted to eat? No good, I tell you. One of my scores last weekend was a pork loin for $3.50, so I have been enjoying that for dinner the past few nights. The first night I just grilled it up, made some brocolli and […]

Thanks Sweetpea!

Posted by Brooke on June 27, 2011 in Random Thoughts, Scores!

One of the rules I’ve set for myself is only purchasing one Sunday Paper a week. There are a few reasons for this, but the main one is cost (others being hoarding prevention and my desire not to prolong the life of the print industry.) At $2 a pop, buying a bunch of papers could […]

Next Level Shopping- June 26, 2011

Posted by Brooke on June 26, 2011 in Scores!, Shopping trips

First, I’m afraid blogging about this is going to make things worse. Now I have not only incentive to get good deals regularly, but the more entertaining/ridiculous things I do, the better for writing about. Enter today’s shopping trip. Cereal is a couponing staple, although between matching up the best price with what you have […]

More Booze Coupons, Please!

Posted by Brooke on June 26, 2011 in Scores!

This coupon business definitely requires some effort, and I was going to draw the line at sending in rebates, because I’m still kinda lazy, but then this little gem arrived. I’d say $12 is worth the cost of a stamp and envelope (unlike the Asprin rebate that would have gotten be back the 50 cents […]

Shopping- June 25, 2011

Posted by Brooke on June 26, 2011 in Shopping trips

Today I dropped $14, which included buying this week’s coupons (aka the Sunday Newspaper) and a couple things I totally didn’t need but WERE GOOD DEALS, such as clearance iced tea mix. Total percent of savings was 62% and I got: -3 packs of Stride gum (1.28) -Another pack of gum I thought I had […]

Shopping- June 23, 11

Posted by Brooke on June 26, 2011 in Shopping trips

I set out to buy stuff for dinner. I decided to cash in a couple catalinas I’d accrued buy buying the right things, including $5 off for buying $15 worth of batteries and $4 off lamb, (which I’m honestly not sure what I bought to get.) My actual needs were sour cream, potatoes (my first […]

Shopping – June 18, 2011

Posted by Brooke on June 26, 2011 in Shopping trips

I figure if I’m saving over 50% I’m doing pretty well. I know on the show they get everything for free, but yeah, that’s seemingly unrealistic for myself. My most successful trip so far has yielded 81% savings, and only consisted of SOME stuff I didn’t need. For $4.25 I went home with: -a box […]

Yeah, I’m Couponing

Posted by Brooke on June 26, 2011 in Random Thoughts

If you know me well, you probably won’t be surprised about my latest hobby, because I get into random, ridiculous things all the time. I’ll be honest, I saw Extreme Couponing on TLC and said, that looks fun. I’m not doing it to save money or support my five kids on $150 a month, but […]
