Help Habitat For Humanity!!!!!

Thanks to Lindsay for this information. It sounds like a Great Cause and I can not imagine what kind of impact all of us "krazy coupon ladies" could have for this program!

Under this program, every time you shop at Albertsons and scan your linked Preferred Savings Card, Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity will earn back up to 4% of your shopping dollars. During 2008, we received nearly $675 from the Albertsons Community Partners Program.

Even if you have linked your Preferred Savings Card to Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity in the past, you must relink your card at the Albertson's website by February 28, 2009 in order to keep earning funds for Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity. It will only take a minute and will help us greatly. Here is all you need to do:

Walgreens Excedrin Deal

Ok, so I know this deal ends tomorrow, but it's awesome. Their excedrin 24 count is $1.99 this week and on thi site you can print a $2 off coupon (twice). THEN, when you buy your excedrin, you get a $1 RR printed. Make sure you do separate transactions to get your extra RR's. Here's the trick, the coupon is worth more than the price at Walgreens, so have them adjust THEIR price to $2.00 so that they will get their money back. The total comes out to .12/bottle. I got 5 bottles for .60. Saved $25!!! (plus my $5 RR's) Yeah for excedrin!

Go here:

Some weeks the only way I get through is because I know Date Night is coming... I love it.

Statesman half price!

I was at Fred Meyer today (the one in meridian) and there was a guy from the statesman right when you walk in the front doors. You can get a Sunday/holiday paper for half off the reg price. You can sign up for as many as you want. They just have to be under different names and you have to either pay for a 6 month subscription or a year subscription up front. He will be there tomorrow and Sat only. So if you need newspaper subscriptions it's a pretty good deal. Deal!

*I just played around on this site and the deal works on all products, not just diapers! Just spend $49 and youre good.

Pyp sent me this link, Im sure some of you have seen it, but if not it was worth posting! Right now at they have a coupon code on your first diaper order (AFF10) that gets you $10 off $49. They are also offering free 2 day shipping, and a $15 rebate.

Here's the link to the rebate details and rebate form.

Here is an example of a deal you could do (courtesy of PYP)

Huggies Snug and Dry Diapers Extra Large Case, Size 4, 150 diapers $38.99
Huggies Snug and Dry Diaper - Jumbo Pack, Size 4, 34 diapers $10.99
= $49.98
- $10 off $49 code AFF10
+ Free Shipping
= $39.98 shipped

- $14.97 refund for Parenting Magazine
= $25.01 after rebate

divided by 184 diapers
~ $.14 per diaper

I dont know about you, but I can never have too many diapers!

"You got how many biscuits?!?!?"

If any of you went a little crazy with the biscuits (myself included) you may or may not have heard that from your husband. Mine can never resist the coupon comments, and now I am on a mission to prove him wrong! So, here's where you come in... I need ideas and recipes to use so that I can use all my biscuits before they expire.Here's what I tried last night for any of you looking to use yours up too.

Chicken Pot Pie
(adapted from
1 Can of Biscuit Dough
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup milk or heavy cream
2 1/2 cups chicken
2 cups Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers frozen mixed veggies, or just peas, or whatever you have
1. Heat oven to 350 F
2. Put 3 or 4 biscuit circles on the bottom of your pan ( I used a 6-7 in round baking dish) and spread them out so they are all touching or over lapping
Cook for 20 minutes
3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, cook 2 minutes, stirring often. Stir in flour and seasonings. Gradually stir in broth and milk, cooking and stirring until bubbly and thickened.
4. Stir in chicken and vegatables. Remove from heat.
5. Put in baking dish and top with 3-4 more biscuit squares.
6. Bake 25-35 minutes, or until top is a pretty brown. (you may need to cover with foil for the last 15 minutes or so to prevent too much browning)

We had this last night and everyone liked it. I have never made a pot pie, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but it was easy, quick and I used all ingredients that I had gotten for dang cheap or free. I think the whole meal cost me 50 cents!

Thanks everyone who commented on ideas...

I made the mini pizza's for lunch today for my kids and they were a hit! Just put some spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese and bake them up! (I didn't time it, I just watched them closely)

Here's a recipe from all recipes for monkey bread. Can't wait to try this one!

3 (10 oz) packages biscuit dough
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup margarine
3/4 cup white sugar

1. Mix together 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon
2. Quarter the biscuits with kitchen shears (dip shears in water after each cut to keep biscuits from getting too sticky). Dip biscuits into sugar mixture, and place in a greased tube pan.
3. Melt margarine and mix in 3/4 cup sugar. Pour over biscuits.
4. Bake in oven at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes.

I'll try to add more as I find them!

I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for over 10 years, however, the last 2 1/2 years I quit doing workshops and just order product for myself. I am extending to you my 20% discount - but the cool thing is that it's "sale-a-bration" time. When you spend $50 (before 20% discount) on Stampin' Up! merchandise, you'll receive a free Sale-A-Bration reward. There's no limit-for every $50 you spend, you can select another free Sale-A-Bration reward (choose from 4 different stamp sets, ribbon bundle, or cardstock assortment). So stack that with my discount and it's a great deal! I will be ordering in the next couple weeks. I will put all the orders together. Let me know if you are interested at

Progresso Soup Coupons
This link will take you to their website and there are a few coupons to print ($2/4 and $1/2)
Thanks Heather for reminding me about this $1.10/1 Progresso Coupon. I had already printed it, so I over looked it. Try here or here

Cheerios .50/1 or here

$1/1 Macaroni Grill Kits (or try here)

$1/1 Kettle Chips (take the pledge.. get a coupon, not a bad trade)

Blue Bunny

$1/1 Honey Nut Cheerios (are these included in the sale this week?)

$1/1 Toaster Strudels here or here


Progresso light soups

Has anyone bought the progresso light soups on the sale? I have light coupons, but not regular...

Here's my deals...

Grands (some of the biscuits have 50 cents off any 2 stickies on them, which makes them free)
chex mix...I'm stupid and forgot to give my coupon to the cashier...does anyone else do this?...made me mad at myself. So, they were $1...should have been free
Betty Crocker cake mix...25 cents
Betty Crocker frosting...17 cents (with a 50 cent manuf. coupon)
Betty Crocker cookie pouches...17 cents (the frosting I bought had 50 cents off any cookie pouch, so I used the coupons from those for the cookie pouches)
Betty Crocker Stickers (fruit roll up thingys)...they paid me $1 for every 5 I bought (I had manuf. coupons for 50 cents off per box and then the catalina for $3.50 printed off also. I didn't try more than 5 boxes per transaction, because the catalina prints $3.50 off per 5 boxes, so I don't think it would print 2 of them for 10.

Get to Albertson's...

Albertson's was great this morning! the deal going on right now is: buy 10 participating items/receive $ 10.00 coupon good on your next purchase. I did 9 transactions and this is what I bought:

20 Progresso soups (used 10 .50/2 manufactured coupons)= .25 each
30 cans of Pillsbury grand bisquits (used 10 .75/3 manufactured coupons that my store manager gave me) = FREE
18 boxes of fruit snacks (used .50 off manufactured & .75/3 Printable coupons & recieved $ 3.50 catalina when you buy 5)
10 boxes of Betty Crocker cake mixes ( no coupons needed) = .25
5 tubs of frosting (used 5 .50 off manufactured coupon) = .17 each
5 cookie pouches (used 5 .50 off manufactured coupon) = .17 each
2 boxes of Betty Crocker supreme brownies (used 1 .50/2 manufactured coupon)= .75 each

***after all my coupons & 10.00 catalinas, I spent $ 12.05 out of pocket***
I saved $ 207.68

My Albertsons Trip

My first transaction was $24, and each transaction thereafter was between .48 cents and $3.70. I just stocked up on the things that I thought might sell out this morning. I'm sure I'll be back in the next few days to get some other items.
  • Betty Crocker Warm Delights were 0.17 cents after .50 cent off coupon
  • Pillsbury Grands Biscuits are FREE with .75 cent off 3 coupons. (Albies @ Mer/Fairview has tons of coupons these coupons to give away).
  • Chex Mix and Cheerios Mix are .50 cents to free depending on the coupon. There are .50 cent off newspaper coupons, .60 cent and $1 off printables.
  • Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks/Gushers/Fruit Rolls are somewhere between .05 cents or -.20 cents (overage) depending on your coupons. I got 50 boxes for free! There are many variations coupons out there .50/1, .50/2, $1.25/4 and $1.5/5 are what I used.
  • When you buy 5 fruit snacks/gush/rolls you get an additional $3.50 off catalina with the $10 off. In each transaction I had 5 fruit snacks and 5 other items. I was afraid if I did 10 fruit snacks together in one transaction, I'd only get one $3.50 catalina. If anyone tries this and gets 2 $3.50 cats please let us know!
Some other deals I may go back for:
cookie mix will be .37 cents after .40 cent off coupon
frosting will be .27 cents afer .50 cent off coupon
progresso .50 cents after any number of variations of .25 cent off 1 can coupons

Albertsons... Is anyone going to be able to sleep tonight?

So, I am not ready to put together my list...but here are a couple of pointers for Albertsons tomorrow.

1. Plan your shopping out before you go. Have a list of how you will do each transaction and have all the coupons for each transaction separated.

2. A few people have asked me, and unlike Walgreens, at Albertson's if you do several back to back transactions and use the $10 Catalina, a new one will print each time.

3. Don't forget to get your printables...
- boxtop4education has several good ones for this sale
- $1/1 Chex Mix (you may have trouble printing, if so try this link instead.)

Happy Shopping Everyone! I will post my shopping list hopefully by tomorrow morning.

Don't forget the Coldstone deal til 7:30!

Albertson's Preview 2/18-2/24

Here's the Albertson's PREVIEW from Pinching Your Pennies. Have a great day!

Ice Cream and restaurants

I know that the sale is over today, but Albertson's ice cream is on sale for $1.99 for the 1.75 quart size. You have to use the coupon in their ad, on the front page. I don't know if you have tried their ice cream, but it is AWESOME...the only ice cream I buy (I'm very picky with ice cream).

Also, if you want a great deal for dining out, go to and you can get $25 gift cards to a bunch of local restaurants for $3! I've used these before and had no problems with it. Use the code PREZ at the checkout, and you'll get the deal. Just FYI, most of the restaurants require you to spend at least $35 on dinner with these certificates.... Order them soon though, because they do sell out, especially at this price.

Rite Aid Prescription Transfer Coupon

My two kids are sick and have ear infections- yuck! But after we visited the Doctor, we had the prescription called into our usual savon pharmacy and then I called Rite Aid and asked them to do a transfer. Rite Aid takes your info and calls the other pharmacy and transfers the Rx to their store. Then print off these coupons for 2 $25 gift cards for transferring 2 prescriptions. I made $50 from having sick kids! I got a humidifier and a big toy dump truck for my sick son for free! The coupon is a pdf, but it's legit. You can navigate to it from Rite Aid's website. :)
The Rite Aid offer expires 3/31/09. Target also had $10 coupons for transferring a Rx in this week's Sunday paper, but only local Target w/ pharmacy is Nampa.

Target deals...

I went to Target with the family tonight, so my brain was fried, but I remember a few prices on things.

* Goldfish crackers .16 each
* Chex Mix .66 each
* Orange juice $ 1.50,
* razors around $ 2.49
*lunch meat around $ 2.66

(those prices are after using both Target printables & manufactured coupons)

*6 oz bags of Stacy's pita chips are $ 1.00 after $ 1.50 off coupon)
* use your $ 1.00 off Johnson/Johnson coupon on the mini first aid kits, they are .97

Those were just the ones I looked at.

I hope that helps someone!

Costco Milk

I was at Costco on Friday and bought skim milk for a 1.50 a gallon and 2% for 1.75. Has milk always been this cheap at costco?! I hadn't been in so long maybe I'm just out of the loop. Anyway just FYI for those thinking of stocking up on Fred Meyer milk this week with their sale, Costco is cheaper.

The coupon is on the front page of their ad, or you can pick it up right by the yogurt.

Decoding barcodes. Wonder if your coupon will work on a product?

I just stumbled across this blog with some info I had to share. It is from: . Scroll to her Jan 29 2009 entry.
(who received the info from:

It talks about how to tell if your coupon will work on a certain product, by looking at the numbers on the barcode. Your coupon should work if the first 5 numbers of the barcode match the first 5 #'s on the product barcode, if they match, your coupon should work! Try it out, I did. I pulled out my kotex coupons and they matched to the ones I've been getting at Wal Mart. I looked at my febreeze, they match too, shampoo, lotion ect...

I hope that helps someone, I never knew about it, so next time you're wondering if your coupon will work on the product, check out your barcode numbers to see if they match up!

Are you a coupon addict?

Tricia from fabulessly frugal mentions 10 ways to know if you are addicted to bargain shopping. It is quite humorous. I have to admit I have done all 10 and I am a proud couponaholic. See the list for yourself and see if you fall into this category. (It's under the heading: A new kind of coupon class.)

KCL Investigates: Fraudulent Colgate?

UPDATE: Colgate confirmed that the $1.50 off coupon is fraudulent.
The only toothpaste prinatble coupon that's out right now is accesible from the website link below.

First let me say thanks to our contributor Emily for all her wonderful posts. She is the most seasoned couponer on our panel and the biggest philanthropist of couponed goods. I completely respect and trust her. I also appreciate the Colgate coupon's validity being called into question. I agree that it is highly suspect and probably fraudulent. The best way to tell for sure is to ask the company that puts out the coupons. I will be calling Colgate customer service tomorrow at 7:00 AM to ask about the coupon. I will post what I find first thing in the morning. There is a $1.00 off coupon that you can access from Colgate's website.
Unfortunately, most of us have likely used fraudulent coupons without knowing it ourselves. Thanks again Emily for all you do- we don't want to shoot the messenger! Emily started couponing years ago and is not a newbie. This coupon could have got past any of us.

.15 Scott Toilet Paper and Free Single Darigold

For all those who haven't gotten enough of Albertsons. Grab your $1 Scott Toilet Paper Coupon from this past Sunday. Run to Albies and grab a 4 pack of T.P. for .15, after your $1 coupon gets doubled.  The single 16 oz. Darigold Chocolate and Strawberry milks are Free after doubling the $1 coupon.

TGI Friday's buy one get one free!

Click here to get a coupon for one free entree when you buy one. Good until March 1st. Not valid on Valentines day. Enjoy!

Make Money At Walgreens & get FREE toothpaste!

Right now at Walgreens, their Colgate toothpaste is on sale for $ 1.50, and when you buy 2, you get a $ 1.00 RR (Register Reward. It's a coupon you can use at Walgreens on your next visit)

Clenece at: has the Walgreens deals outlined and a link to print out $ 1.50 off colgate coupons! There are 4 coupons to a page and you can print out as many as you want! (She has a wonderful blog too!)

If you already have a TON of toothpaste, consider picking some up and donating them to your local shelter, your Relief society president etc... there are so many people we can help with our coupons!

Make sure to seperate your transactions into groups of 2 to get your $ 1.00 RR each time. I made the mistake the first few times, buying 4 at a time, but only 1 RR printed out. Today, I seperated my transactions with 2 toothpastes, and a RR printed out for every 2)

Good Luck!

New Website

My sister in law is getting her own blog started for things that are free or just a really good deal. She is the best at coupons and many times ends up having the grocery store owe her money. Check it out here!!

Buy/Sell Kids Clothes! SAVE MONEY!

Calling all Moms! The dates have just been announced, March 19-21st for the Spring Sale at Moppet Togs Consignment sale! I joke that Christmas comes twice a year for me with this sale. Why save money on groceries just to spend it all on clothes for your kids? This is my favorite consignment sale in the valley. The clothes are much better quality than Other Mothers or Kid to Kid, and you can find much nicer, name brand and boutique brand clothing. I love kid shoes and I’ve bought pediped, primigi, stride rite, puma, gap and other nice brand shoes at this sale.

Buying: You can shop the sale with the general public, but if you’re like me you want to join the other crazies who volunteer for one 4 hour shift. Volunteering allows you to shop at the first pre-sale. Getting the first choice of these clothes is a big deal! I always volunteer and show up to the sale with a laundry basket to shop with! When you consign you also get to shop at a pre-sale, after the volunteers and before the general public.

Selling: How do you sell your kids clothes? Do you sell them at a garage sale for $1-2 per piece? Do you sell them on Ebay –all that hassle gets old for me too- and then paypal and ebay take their chunk of my money. Do you sell them to Other Mothers where they give you 45% of what they deem it’s worth? Moppet Togs is the answer. Here’s how to sell at the sale. You hang your cloths on hangers, all pinned together for outfits and you price what you want to sell it for. You cut a 3x5 card into thirds or fourths and pin it to the top right shoulder of the garment. Then you enter all you items and prices in an online database. When you go to drop of the clothing They’ll have barcodes printed out on stickers that you’ll stick to your tag. You keep 70% of the sale price of your items. Every night during the sale you can log in to your account and see how much you’ve sold! Lastly, you have the option to let your items go half off on the last day of the sale. On items that I love, I won’t let them go half off, but on things that I want gone, I do. This makes for great shopping on the last day of the sale. I’d guess atleast 80% of the merchandise goes half off on the last day. There is a huge price range, so ask what you want for your things.

Get online and visit their website! Sign up to be a consigner and start getting your kid’s clothes ready! (Call Old Navy and ask them to set aside hangers for you if you don’t want to use your own.) The volunteer sign up will be out in a few more weeks. Don’t visit this sale unless you plan to become crazy obsessive about it, like me! Here's a post from my personal blog after the last sale.
