I know some of you wonder…

September 9, 2009

I just reorganized my stockpile, so I thought I’d show you.  This is just food.  Toiletries and household goods have other spots.  And I do have a large pantry uptairs.  Forgive the angle.  My stockpile is in what we call “the tunnel”.  It’s a narrow hallway of shelving on either side (thanks Dante!), so I can’t get a straight-on angle that would include more than a few boxes of cereal.





Cheap Soup!

September 4, 2009

Just this week I noticed that we were down to the last can of soup from last winter’s stockpile.  And voila!  A soup deal!  Here’s a simple deal to do at Jewel now through next Wednesday…

Buy 7 cans Progresso soup (make SURE they ring up at $2.87 before preferred card… the vegetable soup rang up too cheap)

Use 2 $1.10 off 3 or $1.00 off 3 Qs, available here or here

Pay $9.47 oop (assuming you use the $1.10 coupons), get back $5 OYNO

Total of 64 cents per can!
To be sure you hit the $20 to trigger the catalina, be sure to scan your soup first, watch to see that the total hits $20, THEN scan your preferred card!


Old Navy Weekly

Did you know about  Each Thursday, Old Navy updates this site.  If you click around, you can find coupons for $10/50, 15% off, even $75/100 if you’re REALLY quick and lucky!  Before you head to Old Navy, check it out!

Also, right now, if you have an Old Navy card, you can get 20% off all your purchases PLUS a free reusable tote.  This was GREAT for us, because men’s khakis are also on sale for just $15!

Did you know?

Did you know that at Jewel, Meijer, and many other stores, you can take your receipt back with your coupons and they will pay you for the coupons?  So take advantage of the great deal, even if you forgot your coupons (gasp!) and you can still redeem the coupons!  The time limit at Jewel is 60 days.  Tomorrow, I’ll be bringing several receipts and getting back almost $30 from my coupons!!!

I apologize for the lack of blog entries.  Summer has been crazy busy, and Dante had this past week off.  I’ll try to keep better on top of things for you in the weeks to come, and definitely when school starts!
