Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honors the Lord should be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Double Deals

I've been reviewing Fabulessly Frugal and their helpful tips for double deals at Albertsons for this weekend. Here's what I'm hoping and planning on getting. I typically don't spend over $1 for anything with doublers, however there are some exceptions. I typically bring a $20 bill and come out with at least $4 in change if not more. I use 15 doublers, do 5 transactions (only can use 3 doublers per transaction), and most likely buy 15 items (unless a coupon is $1/2, in that case I'd buy more).

4- Shopper’s Value Milk $2.59
Double $.75/1 Any Brand Milk printable coupon (if yours has reset)
Final Price: $1.09 (stock up price)

1- Dole Fruit Crisps $2.19
 Double $0.75/1 Dole Fruit Crisp 03/25 SS
Final Price: $.69 (and there are 2 fruit cups per package, so its like .34 for a package of fruit)

1 - Nivea Lip Care $1.99
Double $1/1 Nivea Lip Care Product, .17 oz stick or .35 oz. tube (EXPIRES 4/2/12)
Final Price: FREE

4 - Michelina’s Authentico, Traditional Recipes, Zap’ems Gourmet, or Lean Gourmet $.88
Double $1/2 Michelina’s Lean Gourmet All Natural Bowls printable coupon
Final Price: FREE

4- General Mills Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Trix, Kix, Cookie Crisp, Frosted Toast Crunch, Total Cereals $2.50
Double $1/2 General Mills Cereals printable coupon
Final Price: as low as $1.00 (will get a FREE Milk Cat with this)

Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows $1.00/$.50
B2G$1 Coupon
Buy 2
Double $0.40/2 Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits or Marshmallows 03/25 SS
Final Price: $.10

4- Minute Maid Juice Box (10ct)
Using a rain check from a March sale 2/$6,
Double 3-$1/1 Minute Maid Juice Box.
Final Price: $1.00 per package or .10 per juice box (for summer travels)

So for 20 items, I'm hoping to get it for $14.25 (before taxes).

These will be my back ups if I can't find what I want:

Nalley Chili $1.89
Double $0.75/1 Nalley 4/1/12 RP
Final Price: $.39

Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner $2.29
Double $0.75/1 Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kits or Cheesy Potatoes 03/18 SS
Final Price: $.79

Palm Sunday Fun!

This week has been a fun week doing some Palm Sunday fun!

 Here he was jumping from number to number as I was calling them out.
 Letter tracing, I realized that he probably needs a lot more PRE-WRITING before we can even start words.
 Palm Sunday Memory, here's where I went wrong, didn't use card stock and he could see through them, thus this was over in about 30 seconds. Live and learn, right?
 Creating Palm Leaves.
 This was probably by far the most exciting activity we did. #1 did a great job following directions and loved the finished product!
 Coloring sheet.
 Number Recognition game, this was fun until he realized he had to do 1-10, he was fine up until about 5.
 Size Sorting. He put all the small ones in a pile, medium sized ones, then large ones, not prompted at all. This was way easy for him!
 Another FUN craft activity, we used our homemade Modge Podge and recreated the "Triumphal Entry".  
#1 thought that we needed to really reenact it, so he made a donkey (aka- legos) and Jesus (Lego Man). I was surprised with how involved he got in the bible reading of the story!

We also sung the songs included in the pack, and I'm happy to say that we've moved from a Christmas song (that #1 ALWAYS sings) to Easter Time - tune to Jingle Bells.We had a great week!

Next week we'll be doing some work with an Easter Pack I found online. If you want to know more specifically what I'm using for home school teachings you can go to my home school tab. I hope to have it more updated as we start preschool 3s in mid August.

Couponing Tip #3


I find that whenever I go to the store WITHOUT a list I come home with a ton more stuff that what we NEEDED. It's kind of like sending Pastor to the grocery store...I've learned NOT do to that, unless I'm with...and even then I spend way more money. So, have your shopping trip planned out, know what coupons you'll be using (especially if your taking advantage of doublers). I typically sit down, look at sales, look at my menu, and plan accordingly. 

Also, NEVER go into the store without your coupon binder or however you store you coupons. Something may be on sale, and you have a coupon for that, even if it wasn't on your list, but its at a cheap "buy" price, having your coupons handy will save you time and money! If you'd like to see how I organize my coupons, go to the couponing tab!
