Nutella Krispie Treats

You may have noticed that I have bought a few jars of Nutella over the last month. First of all - when you make a 4 year old a Peanut Butter and Nutella sandwich instead of using jelly - it's hard to get them back to jelly. (Shocker!) It's that chocolate hazelnut goodness that sucks you in...sigh. Here is another great way to use it - Nutella Rice Krispie Treats! It can be made Gluten Free if you use the GF Rice Krispies that recently came out. (for my big sissy!) It's as easy to make as the "normal" version -- but OOOOHHHH so yummier! You need : 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter 1 package (10 oz.) regular marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows 1 cup Nutella 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal Directions for stove top: Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in Nutella until melted. Add cereal. Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until well coated. It helps to wet the spoo

Children May Be Priceless, But They Are Expensive

This is a repost of mine - enjoy: I love when I leave church with my brain racing from the sermon of the day! Our awesome head pastor always feeds my brain and spiritual soul... Today, he referenced a family that had just had their third baby and was visited by an associate pastor when still in the hospital. Their three boys were the only grandchildren on each side of the family -- and the story came out during the visit that one set of grandparents weren't happy about the pregnancy. They tried to talk them into terminating it at one point, even giving them literature on how expensive it was to raise a child (from birth to whenever). Pointing out over and over again over the 9 months how they simply didn't have that $200,000 for a third child...and if they DID have it, that would provide a nice summer home. Makes you think, doesn't it? How people really let "stuff" get in the way of what is really important in life. A few years down the road, when they have

What to Watch For in July!

Everyone knows that produce is seasonal...we have had that talk before as I have stocked up on Easter Clearance items in April and currently, BBQ supplies! We know it's smart to buy the seasonal items at our local stores like when the fruit is in season, and that means it is at it’s lowest annual cost. A savvy shopper waits until a product is on sale and then stocks up! The idea is to create a stockpile that will last you 3-12 months, or until the product again reaches its lowest price. (Not that you can do that with fresh produce unless your process it!) Convenience/Packaged Foods are seasonal just like produce! Every month we have new things to look for. Here is what is "hot" for July - keep your eyes out for the sales and have your coupons ready! July is National Ice Cream  Month! That should translate into deals on toppings, cones and of course - Ice cream! I will also be sharing with you different recipes to MAKE your own and give away an Ice Cream Maker! W

Meat is one of those items that rarely has a, what do you do? Look for your grocery store selling cycle! Most stores have a 6 to 8 week cycle. What does this mean? This week ground beef is on sale for $1.69 a pound. It normally is $2.93 a pound. If you usually eat 1# a week, you need to invest in 8 pounds at that sale price. This will save you $9.92 on ground beef. $10 is $10 in my world, LOL! Just think of saving $80+ over 8 weeks on meat! The next week, whole chickens might be on sale for $.49 a pound when they are normally over $1.75 You can get a whole chicken for about $2.00, cook it off and harvest the meat. This should get you 2-3 pounds of meat which tastes a LOT better than the 8oz can of chicken for $3.00 **Just think of this: by using the sale pricing on whole chicken and cooking it off, that means the same amount of canned chicken would cost you $18 - you save $16!! (per chicken this week!!) We like chicken for tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, chicken chil

The Frugal "Bible"...

This is a repost of mine, enjoy:   When I was newly married, someone suggested this book to me and I added it to my gift "wish list". Dear hubby was the one who got it for me and, almost 20 years later, I still read through it! Way ahead of her time, Amy Dacyczyn had a newsletter that shared hints and tips to live a less expensive lifestyle. Eventually, they were put together and turned into several books, then a final "complete" one. The index in the back lets you check out things by topic, although the first time I went through it, I read it from cover to cover and used post-it type tags for the things I thought I would try or use...some of those are still there today, LOL! It's a book I occasionally grab and review...when I feel I am needing a fresh idea. My suggestion to you, if you are serious about getting your finances in shape, get your own copy! You can start by checking it out at the library (another whole topic!) but it is a treasure trove

Make Their Day.

This is what she will wake up to. She knows her little pitcher of milk is in the fridge - The Roar-a-Saurus is holding her spoon and the cereal she asked for is sitting out. I used her school place mat for effect and a birthday card she got for a place marker. This should crack her up and set the pace for a good day. Have you done something goofy for those you love lately? It's worth it :)

Here is what happens...

When I ask my daughter to put the dishes in the sink. She is now 5 and has a very mathmatical mind. It just cracks me up!

Woodman's Update

I had to run in and pick up some make up applicators today -- they are the ONLY kind my husband's aunt likes and she is already at the location of the wedding this weekend and apparently, Woodman's is the ONLY place that carries them. (sigh) There is a new sign on the front door - printed, not handwritten this time - that says "Hanging coupons are for immediate use only. Thank you." It was fun while it lasted -- either people were taking entire tear pads full or a lot of us little people added up. I DO use coupons when I shop there - but I like to match them to a sale price instead of to a FULL price. I consider this a dried up source for fun coupons - sorry!

I went back to the store...

I had forgotten that Oscar Mayer meat Catalina deal and had to go back. My husband had been whining asking for me to add sandwich meat to the grocery list and this seemed the time to do it! This trip isn't stellar, but not all of it counts for the magazine challenge as they only count FOOD. Here is my summary: 4 packs OM sandwich meats, different varieties $3.49 Mrs T Perogie @$1.99 (normally $2.69) 2 packs Chicken Of the Sea Sardines in Mustard Sauce @$1 Hair color kit $3.59 (was $6.99) Roundy's Parm Cheese $3 (was $3.79) 2 cans Friskies cat food @$.51 ---coupons used: $.05 bag refund, two $1/2 OM meats (doubled), $1/1 Mrs Perogie (doubled), two $.50/any chicken of the sea (doubled), B1G1 Friskies Final total: 27.25 for $17.25 - And I got a $3 Catalina back from the meats! I realized when I got home that they meat would be $2.50 as of tomorrow and called the store and they will give me a $3.96 credit! That sandwich meat went from $3.79 to $2.79 with the Q, then

Dells Pass Winners!!

Mots for Tots Sample on Vocal Point!

We know you love to treat your readers to tasty tidbits. How 'bout this one: Mott's for Tots ® has 40% less sugar than 100% apple juice and a great taste kids love—it's an easy and healthy way to spoil 'em.  

$5 cats.

Today we went to the Humane Society to drop off the boxes of cat food and packages of cat treats that Miss Sarah collected. I have to say, they were MUCH better to a little person than they were last year, when we took in the items from her Puppy Party ( you can read about it here ). She had a nice chat with an employee and we were able to give hem a picture for their website. I know it's not about doing it for the recognition - but I think positive reinforcement is SOOO huge for little kids as we teach them life lessons and life skills. :) While we were walking around, we learned that June is Cat month - all adult cats are only $5 to adopt!  There were a TON of lovies there from 18 months to 4 years...all looking for a place to call home. Our cats averaged 17 year lives because we did everything down to cleaning their teeth -- you can have a long time friend for just $5 - most are declawed, fixed and all are healthy! As couponers, you know you can feed him frugally -- chec

Pawn America

Ok -- this is not a post about going to pawn things and make money! It's about what that place SELLS! I kept seeing the adds about Tuvies Tuesdays -- where you could get two DVDs for $5. Miss Sarah was SOOOO good at the dentist today that we stopped there. $15 for 6 DVDs and a quick walk around the place let us see things like bread machines for $9.99, coffee makers for $4.99 and more! If you are not wanting to hunt around at garage sales (this is the last week of the spring season) then you might want to stop in and check it out. The have THOUSANDS of DVDs, sorted by children, comedy, sci-fi, horror, drama - and they all looked brand new when I opened the box to peek at them. I know there is one on the east side of Madison, check here to see if you have one in your neighborhood.

My plan for Copps on Wednesday

I am going to MISS Double Double days on Saturday (6/25) where they let us double ten coupons per transaction, so I have to make Wednesday work for me. (sigh) I have a bunch of milk and egg vouchers left from the cereal deal - so that is 4 dozen eggs and 3 gallons of milk to get. I also picked up 20 Crystal Light coupons off of Ebay for $1.50 (free shipping) and will be getting FREE CL with the doubling. Add the $6 or so in Register Rewards that I have to use up - my trips will look something like this: 1 gallon milk (overage) 1 dozen eggs (overage) 5 Crystal Light (free) That takes me to $17.59 shelf price so far...for a negative $1.97 (in overages) 1 pack split breasts ($.99/#) - great price! I want to see how large a package of these I can get - and what the NON sale price would be, to see if I can hit the $25 without adding anything else. The first two pounds would be FREE from the overage! Two or Three 1# bags of baby carrots. We go through them quickly and, they are a Mon

Dinner Tonight

If you have taken my coupon class - you know that I live next to a family right out of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Seriously. Yesterday, we went to their teenage son's high school graduation party and enjoyed an appetizer buffet of hummus, Greek olives, lamb and chicken build your own Gyros and some killer Feta cheese. Guess what she sent over today? A big red bag full of this: The only thing we needed was the Greek Gyros sauce - Tziki. The Greek restaurant is closed on Mondays so I called the local Pizza Pit - which now carries Gyros. I got a 10 oz cup of it from them for just $1. This starts my spending for the Grocery Game Challenge: a cup of sauce for $1 and we ended up with killer Gyros plates for dinner. Yes, life is good, LOL! What I don't show is the baby carrots and onion dip that we had with it - to kinda cut the salt a tad...but what a way to go! Tomorrow's lunch will work in the hummus - but there is enough Feta to last me all month!  We DID get a second

Father's Day - what did you do?

We picked up this shirt and Miss Sarah used the enclosed paint to decorate it. If you want to know where I got it - send me an email at and I will tell you where - it should be on clearance now and you can plan for next year! We also took him to lunch -- after letting him sleep as late as he wanted. Dinner was on the grill - his pick: Smoked Pork Tenderloin, yum! He proudly wore his shirt - it looked great!

Meal Plan Monday

It's the beginning of a new week! In my coupon class, I teach people how to save money at the stores. That is half of the equation for saving money on food, meal planning is the other half to it. You have to USE the food you have brought home and not let yourself make the "fast food run" - those add up fast and kill your budget! Meal planning also saves you time - no more getting home and playing "open up the cupboard doors, what falls out is for dinner" game. You KNOW what you are going to make/eat and have the recipes and ingredients handy. THIS saves you both time and money, two great things! This is the first week of my All You Magazine Grocery Challenge!! I can spend up to $75 a week (no more) and will share what we are actually eating. I get judged on budget (50%), creativity (25%) and how healthy (25%). I have a fairly well stocked house -- and a weekend wedding in the mix that is out of town . THAT will be my biggest challenge! I know the hotel
