Walgreens $10 off Coupon  

Posted by Johnny

I just received an e-mail from Walgreen with a coupon for $10 off a $40 purchase. This could work great with the overlap days. I didn't make it in today so I will go in tomorrow. I am not sure if I will be spending $40 to use it but I printed it off just in case. In the past I have not printed it off and have been disappointed to find out I spent well over the amount needed to use the coupon.

Mega Box Tops  

Posted by Johnny

I finally made it in to Meijer this week and picked up some decent deals. I was pretty excited with the total of box tops I received in the end. (Look below for the breakdown) As I mentioned before the area home school group does save these and is trying to get enough money to buy basketball uniforms. The older team has nice uniforms but the younger team has some sad looking t-shirts. So they will be going to great use. If you do not belong to the home school group (Christy) you can save them and then send them to me if you want and I will pass them on to the appropriate person.

On another note I just want to vent my frustration with Kroger. This is the second time I have been in there on a Wednesday afternoon and they have already taken their sales tags off the shelves and to top it off I did not have an ad to see what was on sale. I went up to get one from the front and they were out of them. I was so mad I just bought some cheese 2/$3 and some yogurt that was on clearance. DO they expect people to remember what's on sale or do they just not care. I kind of get the feeling they don't want people buying the sale items. The last time this happened it was with the Mega Event and it just happened to be that the items that were FREE after coupons were not signed correctly with sale prices! However, they had ads up front then. Okay just needed to vent. Look below for my shopping trip at Meijer.

This is what I did for the Box Top deal:
(2) Pop Secret Popcorn BOGO = 2.79 -.40 doubled = 1.99
(2) BC Cookie Mix @ 1.67ea = 3.34 -.50/2 doubled = 2.34
(6) Hamburger Helper Meals clearanced @ 1.04ea = 6.24 -.75/3 x 2 = 4.74
(1) Kleenex 3pk @ 3.79 – 1.00 = 2.79
(2) BC Warm Delights @ 1.50 = 3.00 -.50/1 doubled = 1.00
(3) GM Cereal @ 3/$5 = 5.00 -1.50/3 = 3.50 (WOW 1.16/box)

Grand Total = $16.36

Grand Total Box Tops earned was 16 (normal box tops on products) + 16 (bonus box tops on some products like the Kleenex) + 120 (From Meijer) = 152 :-)

Chicken Cornbread Cups  

Posted by Johnny

I went to a friends house for a Pamper Chef party the other night and this is one of the things we made. They are very good! I decided to make them for my Nephews housewarming party on Sunday.

Sorry for the arrangement of this but I am just re-typing what is on the recipe. It does not list the ingredients separately.

1. Combine 1 pkg corn muffin mix, 3/4C sour cream, and 1C grated cheddar cheese.
2. add 1/4C flour and 1Tbsp Chipotle Rub
3. place in mini muffin pan and Bake at 350 for 14-16 mins.
4. Meanwhile dice 1 small red bell pepper and thinly slice 1-2 green onions
5. cook peppers over med heat until they begin to soften and then add 1 1/2 C diced cooked chicken and add 1Tbsp Chipotle rub. Cook this over med heat for 2-3 mins
6. Combine chicken mixture with 1/4C sour cream
7. When muffins are done, immediately press tops inward (they suggest using the mini tart shaper)to form cups.
8. Cool in pan for 3 Mins
9. Remove cups and divide chicken among the cups
10. Tops with a dollop of sour cream and cilantro

This is a very shocking video. You need to watch it all, and listen to what he is saying. It's about 10 minutes.

Free Bic Pens @ Walgreens  

Posted by Johnny

For those of you that received the $1/2 Bic coupon in yesterdays paper head to Walgreens for 2 packs of FREE pens. Walgreens is running their Bic Ultra Round Stic Grip Pens 2/$1. I did get some yesterday while my Mom and I were in Ft.Wayne Shopping. I will be getting some more today as do not see another use for these coupons.

Free McCall's Pattern  

Posted by Johnny

Right now McCall's Patterns are offering a Free Pattern. Okay well they are not completely FREE because you do have to pay shipping & Handling which for those of you in the US is $4 for 1-3 patterns. Which if you sew is a pretty good deal. Not the best deal, but decent. If you don't have a place near you that has sales on patterns you could possibly pick one up cheaper than you would be able to elsewhere, like Wal-Mart.

This is the one I got, mainly for the corset. Not that I will be making it soon. I need to up my sewing skills before I will be able to make it, and also the boning is more than I want to pay for right now. So it will wait.

Cheerios Challenge

Walgreens & CVS Trip 8/4/08  

Posted by Johnny

At CVS I got this:

(2) Colgate Advanced 2.99 - (2) 1.50 MQ (these were in the Past Months ALL YOU Mag)
(1) Children's Advil 5.79 - 1.00 IP here
(1) Covergirl Foundation - 8.99
(1) Covergirl Powder - 7.99 (used the BOGO coupon, but beware the cashier takes off the most expensive one because the register takes off the lower priced one. I paid $1for this because my cashier took 7.99 off and the register took 7.99 off. Or you can buy two of the same priced items.)
(1) Folgers twin pack 3.99 - not giving the ECB's so cashier price adjusted to 3.99
(2) Welchs Fruit Juice single serve 1.49
(1) Extreme Energy - 4.99 (not sure what I'm going to do with this, but it was FREE after ECB's)
Total before ECB'S and MQ (after BOGO)= $46.15

I used (2) $4/20 since my total was over $40 then I used the following ECB's
1.00, 2.00, 5.00, & 9.99 This brought my total to $7.69 I think this was pretty good! It is more than I usually spend at CVS though.
I got back the following ECB's:
$1 for Welchs
$5.79 for Advil (monthly deal looks as if I can get another)
$3 for Crest (1.50 ea)
$4.99 for Extreme Energy
$4 for Colgate (2 ea)
Total = $18.78 (so I made .79)

Walgreens Breakdown

I did three separate transaction so I could get the $5 for each Kellogg's deal.

(4) Frosted Flakes 2.50 ea - (2) $1/2 MQ
Total = $8 got back $5 RR

(4) Special K snack bars 2.50 ea - (1) BOGO + (2) 1.00 MQ (these were sent from Vocalpoint)
(1) 3pk Puffs 2.49 - $1 MQ
Total = 7.16 got back $5 RR

(1) 3pk Puffs 2.49 - $1 MQ
(5) Pop Tarts 2.00 ea - (2) $1/2
(1) Glade Candle 1.99 - $1 MQ (Rebate item)

So Total spent was $22.95 with $15 back in RR, I will be using these tomorrow when I go in.
I am planning on doing this tomorrow.

(4) Jif PB sale price 3/$5 with 7-day coupon - (4) .55 MQ making these $1.12ea
(5) Lady's Speedstick 1.99ea - (5) .75 MQ making these 1.24ea
(3) 3pk Irish Spring 1.99ea - (3) .30 MQ making these 1.69ea

My total should be around $15.75 so I will use my $15 RR so my total OOP will be around $1.85 and I will get back $10 RR for buying 8 items pictured on page 16.

Mealbox Coupons Updated  

Posted by Johnny

Finally after a very long time Meijer has updated their mealbox coupons!
I have not had a chance to really compare them to this weeks ad, but there are a lot of new ones that are very different form the previous ones.
They did however keep a few of thier old standbys like thier pasta sauce and fresh mushrooms. I hope they keep this up. I guess time will tell.
