Walgreens Photo Center - 25 Free

Just a reminder to watch one of my recommended sites: www.commonsensewithmoney.com or www.moneysavingmom.com for specials at Walgreens. I don't want to reinvent the wheel that they already are doing, so wills stick to things in Sparta that are good deals, except those that they cover. I did want to remind you that this week, they have a special through Saturday for 25 FREE 4x6 prints when you buy 25. Use the code BUY25GET25 on their website: www.walgreens.com to cash in on this great deal. I am going to see if it allows you to use it on two different orders. I'm not sure about this, but it seems like you should be able to do it.

Piggly Wiggly Deals - August 26 - September 1, 2009

Here are my recommendations for purchases. I am so glad that there are some better sales this week!!
  • Chicken Drumsticks - $.89/lb.
  • Large Seedless Green Grapes - $.79/lb.
  • Dannon Yogurt - $.29 each with 1o - $1/10 = $1.90/1- or $.19 each
  • Coke products (6-pack, 24-oz. Bottles, or 12-pack, 12 oz. cans) - 5/$11 - 2/$1 off 2 MC (picked up in-store 2 weeks ago on Coke display) = 5/$9 or $1.66 each
  • Sargento Classic Shredded Cheese - 3/$5 or $1.33 each 8oz.
  • Campbell's Tomato or Chicken Soup - 2/$1
  • Oscar Mayer Deli Shaved Turkey - $1.99 - $1/2 MC (from Kraft Food's Food & Family Fall '09 - go to kraftfoods.com to sign up free!) = $2.98/2 or $1.48 each
  • Pillsbury Toaster Streudel & Pancakes - 3/$4.98 - $.55/2 MC = 3/$4.48 or $1.48 each
  • Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad - 2/$3 - $.50/2 MC = $2.50 or $1.25 each
  • Betty Crocker Supreme Brownie Mix - 2/$4 - $1/2 MC (in-store with Coke coupons) = 2/$3 or $1.50 each
  • Jello Pudding or Gelatin Snack - 2/$4 - $.35 MC - $.60 MC = 2/$3.05 or $1.52 each
  • FC Flour or Corn Tortillas - $.79
  • Birds Eye Steam Fresh Vegetables or Rice - 3/$4 or $1.25 each
  • Hunt's Ketchup - $.99 - $1/2 MC (From All You Magazine) = $.98/2 or $.49 each

  • Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing - $2.69 - $1 MC (in-store Coke coupons) = $1.69

My meal ideas from this list:

  • Tortilla Rolls (Turkey, Ranch dressing, lettuce, tomatoes from garden rolled up in tortillas)
  • BBQ Chicken Legs in Slow Cooker with Suddenly Salad
  • Grapes with yogurt on top
  • The rest are stock up items. Some of the pre-packaged items are a little steep for our usual fare, but we still have a couple of Airstream camping weekends to go, so these items work well for that: Fruit bowls, pudding snacks, suddenly salad, brownie mix. You may decide not to splurge on these items, but for us it is a savings not to have to go out to eat when we vacation!

Please don't let summer end!

I was actually reading an article the other day about moms who count the days down until school starts to send the kids back to school! I can't believe that people can't wait to get rid of the children that they gave birth to! I am loving every moment with my kids and although I am also anxious to get started with our homeschooling in the fall, I am really enjoying the "fun" time with my kids! Hope you are all getting plenty of savings in, even though it is summer. I feel so blessed that we are able to do our family get-aways on a budget and cook for ourselves in our Airstream. (See my other blog for those updates! htttp://airstreammemories.blogspot.com)

Anyway, I thought I would get some of the deals back up for Piggly Wiggly for the next week of August 12-18! These are just my suggestions. It seems like the deals are sort of slim for the last few weeks, so I look forward to all of the back-to-school deals. The coupons are already increasing... (* items mean they are only on sale from August 13-16)
  • FC Spring Water - $2.69*
  • Dean's Ice Cream - $1.99*
  • Michigan Blueberries - $.99/pint*
  • FC American Singles - $.89*
  • FC Butter - $1.49*
  • Pork Shoulder Country Style Ribs - $.99
  • General Mills Cereal - 3/$6 + FREE milk coupon on next purchase - $1 MC/2 or 3 = 3/$5 or $1.66 plus Free milk
  • Old Orchard 100% Juice - 2/$4 - $1/2 MC = 2/$3 or $1.50 each
  • Coke products - $1 (Yeah!!)
  • FC Sour Cream 16 oz. $1
  • Hunt's Spaghetti Sauce - $1
  • Hunt's Manwich - $1 - Buy 2 Get 1 FREE MC = 3/$2 or $.67 each
  • Hunts Pudding Snack Packs - $1 - Buy 3 get one FREE MC = 4/$3 or $.75 each
  • FC Sweet Relish
  • Tony's Crispy Crust Pizza - $1 - 2/$1 MC = 2/$1 or $.50 each!
  • Old Orchard Frozen Juice or blends - $1 - $1 off 4 = 4/$3
  • Green Cabbage - $.49/ lb.
  • Cucumbers - 2/$1

OK - so it seems like a lot when I write it all out - but I wish there were more coupons to use...that's all!
