Under One Roof

HGTV, Food Network, and DIY Network have created a new exclusive members-only page called “Under One Roof” here where they will share new products and ideas to the members, and let them discuss them and win some of them. I just signed up and it took 5 minutes.  Then a page said they would let me know if I get accepted.  I hope so!

I am already in quite a few  “first peek” programs like Vocalpoint and get so many coupons for entirely free products each month! I don’t know for sure if this will work like that or not, but I figured I’d try to get in anyways. Sign up here. Let me know if you get in!

Pier 49 Pizza 40% OFF!

We have teamed up with City Deals to get exclusive coupons/gift cards 40-70% off at local Utah businesses:

* Food & Dining
* Entertainment
* Health & Beauty
* Services (oil changes, etc…)
* Travel (hotels…)
* Retail (some great furniture store discounts!)
* Misc (orthodontics, car washes, odd n’ ends)

Our new Utah Coupon Deals page is updated weekly with offers, some are exclusive for our site just for you guys and gals! Just go to my main menu bar at the top of my page, scroll over Print Coupons, then Utah Coupons will appear. More states will be added later, if I add them…?… don’t know if I will yet or not.  Let me know if you think I should.

Here’s the deals on there right now I like:

$20 for $50 GC to Arcadia – a spa that does waxing, body wraps, and more. View their prices here and see that $50 would go a long long ways because they have students doing the work (but I have heard nothing but good things about them).

50% off at Cheapers Keepers in American Fork, I haven’t been there but I love Kid-to-Kid and their website looks like it is the same type of shop.

50% off at Crafter’s Corner in American Fork.  On a side note, I swear I am going to make one of these someday, aren’t they cool?!?!!? You just throw them over card tables.

50% off at Cherry Hill, although I doubt they’re open for the season yet, maybe that’s why the price is low for pre-season?

50% off at Jumpin Jacks

50% off at Gandolfo’s

40% off at Smokehouse Pizza and BBQ

and lot’s more… head on over whenever you are going somewhere to make sure you don’t over-pay. Since most of these are gift cards, they can be combined with in-store coupons for maximum savings.

I’m glad to be able to post deals that support local businesses now!

UPDATE: We’ve got both winners, Ann and Erin! I spent $57.17 and I saved $135.28. And I still have a $8 Walgreens register reward leftover for this week’s trip! Also note I saved $10 with coupons and free gift cards from facebook promos at Toys R Us, which I added to my saved total already but may have thrown off some of the guesses. My k-mart trip was free after the $10 rebate, plus well I actually made some $$$ on it.  Anyways here the other receipts:

Walmart $15.18 (mostly for Baby Formula which I had no coupons for, boo!)

K-Mart Spent $6, getting a $10 K-mart gift card back! $4 moneymaker!

 

Walgreens Sorry the Walgreens receipt pictures which are SO fuzzy.

Rite Aid: spent $6.35 and I am getting SCR’s back totaling $11.99

The above items were everything I purchased this weekMy weekly budget of $100 includes everything I buy from groceries, prescriptions, to gifts I buy for my kids birthdays. Keep in mind after going over last week, I compensated for it this week!  Also, if you are new to my site, I stock up on what is on sale, so the reason not much “food” was purchased this week is there weren’t any great sales I needed to get. See here.

Please include in your guess the following which I didn’t get a picture of:
1 gallon milk, 1/2 gallon chocolate milk, 1 dozen medium eggs, 12 ounce frozen strawberries, & $15 which I spent at Toys R Us on my daughter’s 1st birthday present.

Please leave a comment to win one of 2 prizes:
guess how much I saved (rebate savings & coupon savings combined)
& guess how much I spent after rebates and my $13 in Rite Aid gift cards/gift of savings I used

The first person to guess within $5 how much I saved will get 3 coupons for free 6oz pouches of Purina dog or cat food, plus other dog & cat food coupons, $60 total value, etc… mailed to them from me.

The first person to guess within $5 how much I spent will get a3 coupons for free Marcal Small Steps single roll bath tissue, plus 10 other random household cleaner & pharmacy coupons, $50 total value, mailed to them from me.

If you guess them both first, you get both prizes!

I will post my receipt to verify One of my winners from last week emailed me to say she got her coupons, and thought the event was so fun that she decided to hold one on her site as well, here.

MARCH – Frozen food month. You’ll find many stores are offering free freezers or fill-a-bag deals. Between March and April, look for spring cleaning deals, so many cleaner items will be on sale. With Easter, looks for eggs, ham, Kraft products to cycle into good sales. Paper products like towels, napkins, plates are starting to come on strong. Beverage items.

Sauce wars between Ragu and Prego this month. Campbell’s soups will go on as well and there will be coupons in the end of August for these as well. Lunchables are on sale this time of year, too.

• Canned Goods

OCTOBER –
Stock up on holiday foods – Stove Top, turkey, instant mashed potatoes, broth, cranberries, marshmallow, ice cream, pie shells, whipped cream, pudding. Look for great Kraft deals again this time of year. Piggyback those Kraft coupons when you can. Crackers are a biggie – going on for $1 or less a box. Lots of extra deals like $ off cheese WYB crackers. The real kicker is the after Christmas food deals! Save your coupons because pie fixings, fried onion, broth and canned green beans will be on deep discount. I got those onions for .50 a can, normally almost $4. These generally continue through December.

Year-round: after a holiday, you can always pick up cheap cookie dough and any food related to a holiday.

Continual sales: candy, popcorn, chips, anything snacky, cereal (heavier in the fall/winter, but still around in the spring).

Produce: Cheapest when they are in-season  (see picture above).  You can stock up and can what you don’t use for later. I am new to canning but I have done strawberry freezer jam – its the easiest! I personally don’t can food as except this and Huckleberry jam… Wow just typing the word Huckleberry has my mouth watering!

Frozen food sales: seem to centralize on a brand and the switch brands the next month. I think the manufacturers buy slot time for sales. So last month, Stouffers was on sale hard, now lean cuisine is. Save the entire frozen coupon and then keep checking back for the brand of the month.

Frozen pizzas: go on sale in the fall and then again the spring; not often in the summer because people don’t want to turn their ovens on in the summer.

By all means, this isn’t everything that you can get on sale, but if you follow the cycle and stock up (I never buy BBQ sauce in the winter), then you can get where you have enough on hand and only need to refill when the items are in season. The result is that you spend less and less with each successful cycle.

Thanks for the tips PYP!

bruschetta

This is a very cheap meal to make.  Until Dec. 8, Buy Low Market in Provo, UT has boneless skinless chicken breasts for $1.19 lb, which is a CUCKOO deal.  I have bought 40 lbs from them and frozen it in freezer bags.  I will defrost some for this meal.

Stuffing was $.78 at Walmart all last month, I think we should all be stocked up on it.

In August there were tons of deals on canned tomatoes. I got mine at Macey’s.

Macey’s had Kraft shredded cheese for $.98, and I had $.50 off coupons.  Shredded cheese can be frozen and un-thawed in the refrigerator, so I bought 15 bags.  I take out one bag from my freezer a week to un-thaw and use for the next week. Note: Chunk cheese, or regular cheese  that is not pre-shredded does not un-thaw well and I would not freeze it!

So as I stock up on food, I am going to share recipes I make with the food from my storage.

Bruschetta Chicken Bake:

  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes with green chiles inside
  • 1 pkg. Stove Top stuffing mix
  • 1/2 c water
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 c. mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 400
  2. Place the tomatoes, stuffing mix, water & salt & peper in a bowl & mix
  3. Place chicken in 13×9 in. baking dish, sprinkle with cheese. Top with stuffing mixture.
  4. Bake for 45 min uncovered.  Put more cheese on top for last 5 minutes
