I nearly missed the $1.50/1 Aveeno coupon in Parade (FYI Parade frequently has good coupons so ad that into the stack of stuff you actually read)
.75/1 Speedstick in the Smart Source- this is part of the $1 aisle promotion at Walmart
$1/3 any Pillsbury in Smart Source- this will make the catalina promo at Safeway a moneymaker for everyone! Details here.
Click here if you are interested in a more detailed price breakdown of these items– we have a $35 grocery budget for 3+dog in the land of no doubles.
MONDAY: Homemade Macaroni and Cheese w/ salad (recipe in comments section)
TUESDAY: Tacos- vegetarian meat for me and meat lovers for hubby
WEDNESDAY: Strawberry and Mango Salad w/ Homemade Bread (DH can have chicken too)
THURSDAY: BBQ Burgers w/ Grilled Artichokes
FRIDAY: Calzones- homemade dough- I use cheese and veggie sausage, DH gets cheese and ground beef
SATURDAY: Organic Red Pepper Soup for me and Chicken & Rice for husband w/ cheesy crescent rolls (I shred cheese and bake it inside the crescent rolls. I usually make a dessert version w/ nutella spread inside for pain au chocolate)
SUNDAY: Sun Dried Tomato Alfredo spaghetti (w/ chicken for DH)
I would LOVE any yummy baked goods recipe suggestions too. I am too lazy to sort through my cookbooks for ideas these days 🙂
Do you have great blogs you visit for recipe inspiration? I’d love to know about them!!
Heather found a great coupon for a free Right Guard deodorant thanks to the Celebrity Apprentice. Click here to print the coupon- it goes to Smart Source which can take about 2 min to load. Once it prints hit your back button and you should get a second coupon. Print soon as only 10,000 are available!
Lean Ground Beef: $5.93
Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls $1.29 x 3= $3.87
Used my last $2/1 store coupon for beef (sniff, sniff) from a store remodel
Used $.40/2 Pillsbury
Used .30/1 Pillsbury
Used $3/1 catalina from prior Pillsbury transaction
Got 10% off with club card -.98 (see post here for details)
Paid $3.12 and got a $3 catalina for my next purchase! I photographed the catalina so new couponers would know what to look for.
Also, I told you about this Pillsbury deal here. It works for the crescent rolls and cinnamon rolls- this is a HOT deal as I paid .17 for all 3 cans.
I will be back at Safeway tommorrow or Tuesday as the sale on beef ends today. They will likely have 30% clearance on the same packages of beef in the next few days. This is a great way to get the same discounts I got without having any coupons.
Breeze Meter $14.99- used coupon $14.99
Paid $1.24 in tax- got $5 RR for next purchase

Used $1/1 Nivea
Used $5 RR from prior purchase
Total Spent .90- got $5 RR for next purchase
Sunsilk Shampoo $1.09 clearance
Sunsilk Conditioner $1.09 clearance

Used $2/2 Sunsilk from Kmart booklet
Used $5 RR from prior transaction
Total Spent $1.23- got $6 for next purchase
I hope this is not too confusing for new couponers. The Walgreens system is a bit of a headache and frankly I don’t take advantage of many offers there because I get a migraine trying to plan complicated scenarios.
For even an experienced Walgreens shopper you learn new things- for example on my 3rd transaction I only used 2 coupons and had 3 items. My subtotal was .19 so I should not have had to add the caramel but the register would not accept the Register Reward.
Also, when figuring the item to coupon ratio- Walgreens coupons used to not count. So many deals you see this week will suggest using the .39 tissue/gift wrap paper as a filler so you can use the Register Reward. Apparently that is not the case anymore- you need to buy something that you don’t use a coupon on at all (like the batteries in T#2 or the caramel in T#3).
Anyway, I still have $13.50 in Register Rewards to roll.
Let me know how you did today! Any experience shoppers know why T#3 didn’t work for me?
