Since all my children have flown the coop I have started hosting Sunday dinner.  I make an enormous amount of food, and everyone who can, gathers at 6:00 pm to share food, stories, and a good time.  One of our favorite meals to share are fajitas.  These are most delicious when you use a nice cut of steak, like sirloin, and season it up with lots of garlic, chili powder, and cumin.  Then when weather permits, we grill the thin slices of meat outside for the best taste!  We like ours served with grilled onions, and bell peppers, and topped with fresh salsa, a squeeze of lime and cheese rolled in a hot flour tortilla. 

Don’t be shy, leave a comment about “Celebrating Family” and be entered to win a $20 gift card!

Sorry,  I haven’t posted in a while.  I just got the grandsons in preschool, and didn’t realize what an adjustment getting back to a schedule would be.  Now that I have things in a groove, I can get back to deal searching! 

I was contacted by someone at the Beef Council, who advised that Dillons would be working with them to do some promotions on beef, starting this week.  I’m guessing the Sterling Silver Tri Tips might be part of that promotion.  It’s $4.99 lb, and you get free bacon.  I haven’t gone in to see what sizes it’s sold in.  I’m also told that “At your local Dillons, you can also pick up a Celebrate Your Family recipe booklet with great beef recipes.”  So take a look around and see if you can spot one!

Dillons is into week two of it’s most resent MEGA Sale. 

I haven’t been printing off very many coupons, but there are a  lot of good ones on the coupon sites.  They seem to be reloading quite frequently!  Be sure to check them often!

I must share two non coupon related things with you.  I have made two purchases recently that I’m just thrilled with.  First is a bread machine and the second is a FoodSaver.  I love both.  I have mastered french bread quite nicely, and am still trying to get the perfect wheat bread loaf (for sandwiches), and with my FoodSaver I packaged about 10 quart sized bags of tomatoes from my garden and put them in the freezer!

If you mix your own bread dough from scratch using the recipes in the booklet, you can make about 4-6 loaves from a bag of flour for less than $1.00 each.  That’s fresh from you bread maker or oven bread, that has no added ingredients.  My family loves it just as much as I do. 

The Walmart at 21st and Maize had a Sunbeam breadmaker on clearance for $51 when I was there on Saturday. 

Thanks for letting me share.  And if you have questions about either of these items, feel free to ask!

With printable coupons and the Mega Event,  you could save big bucks this week.  This is a great time to stock up on items you know you’re going to need.  You must buy 10 items for the $5 in savings to kick in, but if you have hung onto some of the printable coupons that were available, you shouldn’t have any trouble.  Here’s my list…(all prices are after Mega Event savings minus the coupon)

Hamburger Helper meals $.99-$.75/3 = $.65 each

General Mills Cereal(Cheerios shown) $1.99-$.55=$.99 each

Pillsbury Cresent Rolls $.99-$40/2=$.59 each

Pillsbury Grands $.99-$1/2=$.49 each

Pillsbury Sweet Rolls $.99-$.40/2 =$.59 each

Nature Valley Granola Bars $2.49-$.40=1.69 each

Toaster Strudels $1.99-$.55/2=$1.49 each

Pizza Rolls $2.69-$.55/2=$2.14 each

Old El Paso Products $.99-$.60/2=$.49 each

You may have coupons for some of the other items too.  Most of these coupons were still available when I checked yesterday, if you haven’t printed you limit.  Final prices shown are after the coupons were doubled.  And, don’t forget to check out Shortcuts and Cellfire to add even more savings to you grocery receipt!  Make you list and save some money!

Update

Walgreens has Bic round pens for $.50 this week, so you can use your coupons there for free pens too!

Have you printed your limit on the Bic Stationary coupons at coupons.com?  If not, then get busy printing before they’re all gone.  Then, take those coupons to Dillons and get the Bic Crystal pens (on sale for $.50) for Free.  Or, take those same coupons to Walmart (on sale for $.45) and get them for Free.  I chose to get my pens at Dillons, along with other items I needed, so I could add to my FuelSaver Rewards. 

The sale is advertised at Dillons this week, but the pens could possibly only be on sale at New Market Square.  I don’t remember seeing them in the latest Walmart ad, and as you may soon discover, they don’t honor their own prices at other area stores, or online!

Today all the coupon sites reload and I have found that if you wait too long to print them, you may be left out in the cold.  A lot of the coupons have a limit on the number of times the company will allow them to be printed, and when that number is reached, you can’t get the coupon anymore.

Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Coupons.com and Smartsource all have Cheerios coupon and Dillons still has the big boxes on sale for $2.66.  If you buy 10 participating products you can get another $.30 off.  So with the $.55 coupon doubled, you can get this HUGE box for $1.36!  This is a stock up price. 

They are also selling Pepsi and Coke products 5/ 12 packs for $12!  (buy 4 get one free)  That is a great deal on pop.  Another stock up price!

Be sure to go to my site and check out the prices at the other area stores if you plan a Wal Mart trip.  You may want to do some price matching!

Have a great 4th celebration.

7 or 8 months ago, if you asked me where was the best place to buy diapers and training pants (price wise) I would have said Walmart without hesitation.  Today, I will tell you Dillons, hands down.  Since I began coupon shopping I have discovered that Dillons almost always has a sale on a name brand, like Huggies or Pampers.  Huggies is my preference, in both diaper and training pant.  And if you cut coupons and download coupons to a loyalty card, you know that Huggies always has coupons available.  At Dillons you can redeem both the paper coupon and the “virtual” coupon on one product.  That can add up to $4 !

Well, sometimes you even get a better surprise.  Yesterday I went to Dillons and purchased 2 Huggies Pullups.  One day and one overnite.  I had intended to also buy a pack of Goodnites, but they were all out of the smaller package for boys, so I had to settle for the Comforts brand this week.  The Huggies are on sale for $8.99 each and the Comforts cost $7.99.  I had 2 $2 off printable coupons for the Huggies and 1 $2 off on my Dillons card from Shortcuts.  There must be a promotion going on at Dillons I didn’t know about, because an additional $3 discount rang up when I checked out.  So, instead of paying $25.97 for the 3 packs of pants, I paid $16.97 before tax.  I saved $9.  That’s like getting a free pack! 

Before I made the wonderful discovery of coupons, I bought White Cloud brands of diapers and training pants at Walmart.  (Except for nite pants, I had to buy Goodnites).  The last time I checked the White Cloud training pants cost $9.47 for 21.  I have not ever found a coupon for the White Cloud diapers or training pants, not to say they don’t exist. 

So, be sure you do your research.  You could be saving yourself a nice little chunk of money!  Don’t forget to keep your receipts.  Especially with Huggies purchases.  Register with Caregivers Marketplace for a $.75 rebate on every package you buy.  Go to my website for a link to their website!  Be sure to review the list of eligible items, you might find other items you buy qualify!

Happy Savings!
