About Me

I'm a Utah mom, just trying to make ends meet. Several years ago, I was introduced to a new way of couponing. I've been addicted ever since. I have a hard time paying full price for anything anymore.

I love couponing so much, I decided to become a teacher for Grocery Smarts.

I teach free classes and show you how to get everything you need at the grocery store and still leave $$$ in your pocket. I'll also teach you the best ways to get and organize your coupons. The best part of the class is when I show you how to match your current coupons up with the current local sales - getting the most bang for your buck!

Healthy Fast Food

I love going through my Google Analytics to see who's checking out my blog. I haven't done it in months and what a treat it was today to check out other people's blogs! I could waste my whole day doing this (LOL)!

I came across a great tip and recipe for Healthy Fast Food from Surviving Recession 101. You really ought to check it out! I think I get up everyday wondering what we're going to have for dinner. This idea certainly helps and it's so quick. By the way, if you participate in the Bountiful Baskets co-op you could easily throw any "extra's" into this meal.

I added a few blogs to my favorites list - make sure to check them out :0)

Thanks to all my faithful readers!

Good Things Utah and PYP

As a busy mom, I don't get a chance to watch some of the fun shows I'd like to watch during the day, but I did catch a segment on Good Things Utah this morning.

Rebecca Pickett of PYP, was back to talk about the Smith's Daytona sale. She spelled it out so easily and walked you through the ease of using online coupons and matching them up with a local sale.

Check out the video clip from GTU this morning and you too, can take advantage of this great sale.

Remember: you can only print 2 online coupons (for each item) per computer. Never, never, never copy an online coupon. Fraud hurts all of us - especially when stores limit or will not take online coupons anymore.

If you haven't had a chance to check out Pinching Your Pennies website - it's well worth it.

Good Luck - take advantage of this great sale this week!

Kents Early Bird Sale - Saturday, Feb 13th

This was posted by Jonafifi on PYP - Thank You!!!

I don't know about you, but I've certainly spent a lot of time wallowing in pain over the loss of Albertsons. I think I've found another great place to get a lot of deals. I've enjoyed shopping at Kents over the years, but I have to say they really do a spectacular Early Bird sale. If you haven't shopped one yet, it's well worth checking out. Just so you know what to expect - the parking lot will be FULL, grocery carts maybe few and far between - so grab one if you see one, the store will be packed, but the deals are sooo good and the customer service is superior! There will be a checker at each station and if you come during their early bird hours (6 am to noon) they'll treat you with a donut and milk/juice. Here's a list of what they will have on sale.

Bananas (2lbs) $0.88

10lb bag extra, extra, extra diet lean ground beef $1.79/lb

16 oz WF sweet cream butter 3/$5 (this is a good price to stock up and you can freeze your butter)

2.6 Armour lunchmakers $0.79

family pack beef stew meat $2.29/lb

20lb box boneless skinless chicken breast or tenders $29.80 ($1.49/lb) (I don't often see the price of chicken any lower than this. The box will come with 4, 5lb sealed bags. It's easy to share, can or just keep frozen)

family pack boneless center cut pork loin chops or roast $1.79/lb

family pack boneless beef New York steaks $2.99/lb

A sale that is finally worth a handful of coupons!

If you've noticed it's been a while since I've blogged. There's nothing like having sick kids and being sick yourself. I think we're on the mend so I'll be keeping up better :0)

In my downtime, I've watched many blog about the great Smith's Mega Sale. So last night I spent some time clipping and organizing my coupons. I was truly thrilled to have a handful by the time I was done. Now that Albertsons is gone, it's been a long time since I've been able to do this.

Here's what I got:

4 boxes of Capri Sun

6, 8oz bags Kraft cheese (I put these in the freezer for later)

8 cans Hormel chili

2 bags of Pepperidge Farms Goldfish

4 Sobe Waters

2, 1/2 gallon OJ

2 boxes of Nature Valley granola bars

4 boxes of Nabisco crackers (2 Ritz, 2 Wheat Thins)

10 Hershey candy bars

4 Toaster Strudels

5 Krusteaz cookie mixes

2 Nestle refridgerator cookies (I love to freeze these)

3 pkgs of Solo Bowls
3 pkgs of Solo plates
3 pkgs of Solo cups
5 boxes of Finish (Electrasol) dishwasher tablets (I prefer the tablets over the gel packs. If I only do one dishwasher cycle per day - this will last me at least 3 months!)

I handed the checker my Smith's Grocery Card at the end and noticed prior to scanning it, my total was $199.xx (YIKES)! After scanning it, the price dropped to $122.xx (still a little scary) and after all the coupons were scanned my grand total came to $77.25. This is a 62% savings (according to my receipt). I'm pretty stoked.

Most of what I bought today will go into my storage rotation. I have to say it's been a long time since I was able to stock up on some of the items I got today. I live for these kinds of sales!

It's not too late to take advantage of this great sale. It will run one more week. Hope you can get some great savings as well :0)
