Winco is better then the best. I was scared to go because it is a 20 minute drive from my house, and I couldn’t justify the savings due to using extra gas to get there. I finally broke down and took the trip there today, mostly because I needed produce and I’ve heard its the ‘go-to’ for lowest produce prices. As you saw in the Winco Deals this week & next week, they were also offering 4 products completely free. So they lured me in.
I already want to go back. Their prices were drop-dead low and their variety was fantastic. I got 8 lbs of Strawberries for only $5.96. I’ll be making my super-simple, yet foul proof Strawberry Freezer Jam tonight! I usually add in Huckleberries but they aren’t in season yet. I go to the mountains in Idaho and pick them myself, since they are too expensive to buy anywhere.
I normally do Guess What I Spent & Saved, but since my kids were climbing out of the shopping cart and I was in a hurry, I didn’t use many coupons. Their food is about 50% off regular prices, so I did save a lot, but it’s impossible to guess how much I saved.
So it’s just Guess What I Spent day:
Leave a comment: Guess within $5 how much I spent and get $30 in clipped coupons!
If no-one guesses by Sunday night, I’ll just tell you.
Hint: their meat wasn’t that cheap – I spent $15.50 on fresh steaks and fresh cut ham alone! This was the only area of the store I didn’t see prices lower then regular grocery store prices.
Also, the diapers and Coppertone were from Rite Aid. I always buy diapers from Rite Aid. Stack a $5/25 coupon with a few $3/1 manufacturer’s and $1/1 video values coupons, and you can’t get much lower. There’s a $3/1 Coppertone coupon on Rite Aid Video Values right now, plus I had a $2/1 coupon.com I’d printed awhile back (it’s only $1/1 now), plus it’s on sale (I think $8.99) so it was a great deal. It ends tonight, but if you do it, look for the Baby Coppertone spray bottles, it has 50 SPF and is a “bonus” package with 50% bigger bottle.

This week I’m attempting to make a felt playhouse similar to the one shown above. Those of you who know me are lurched over your keyboards laughing- you can hardly breath as you gasp between laughs. I am not a crafty person. I am not artistically gifted or creative. But I have the pattern and copying detailed steps I may be capable of. With the help of my mom.
My first step was buying the “ingredients” (above). JoAnn’s has a 50% off one item coupon out right now that came in Saturday newspapers. If you didn’t get it, just ask an employee- they usually have one at the checkout. I used the 50% off on the largest felt piece and got all the supplies for $30.28 – $7 under the cost of ordering supplies on Fabric.com!
This week will be a crazy one – I’ll be trying to get the playhouse made with my mother most of the week, so posts will be on the “light” side. But I’ll keep you updated on my journey through creating my little girls’ playhouse.

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended. Kimberly McLean Flack guessed within $5 of “Saved”. I saved $63.12 + I got $10 back in catalinas. No-one guessed spent – I spent $45.88 OOP – I didn’t have any previous catalinas to roll into this deal 🙁 Thanks for playing – see ya’ next Saturday for another round!
I haven’t done a Guess What I Spent & Saved for a few weeks! This week I still haven’t made it to Walgreen’s to get my free razors, I’m guessing they are gone already. But I still want to go! I don’t need them; maybe I’m just a slight couponing addict? If its free, its calling to me…
Anyways, you know how this works:
- First person to guess within $5 how much I spent OOP get $30 in clipped coupons.
- First person to guess within $5 how much I saved (including catalinas) gets $30 in clipped coupons.
If no-one guess by tonight I’ll just tell you.

This deal was going on yesterday and worked for me. I talked to the manager and this deal will be going on next week (1 day only) as well. He said he’d let me know when they have it again.
Mostly, I am testing out my coupon matchups entry form on this post.
