Rainbow is now doubling on Saturday also. This week there are some good printable coupons to go with the sale. Check the post below for some ideas. Also check out coupons in our pockers. Each week she posts a scenario using only printable coupons. It's really helpful when your coupons are a mess and you can't find want you need.

Not blogging anymore?

So here there, everywhere it seems people have been asking me, "So, your not blogging anymore?" It seems that lots of you have been checking, and starting to wonder if I am ever coming back.

Well, I'm back. I took much of the summer off from couponing, but am realizing that I have been spending more then I want to so I am getting back into the swing of things again.

I'll try to start blogging regularly about what I am finding, but 2 kids, minus 1 laptop (still haven't replaced the one that died in May) equals very little time on the computer for me.

Here are just a few of the things that I found for this week.

Rainbow has BOGO Fiber One, and YO-Plus Yogurt 4pks, -2 $1/1=2/$.59
There are also BOGO MF from the back of Fiber One cereal boxes. Check your stash of cereal to see if you have any.

Also, I've heard that starting on Saturday the Trib will be selling early edition Sunday papers for $.50. These should have all the same coupons as the regular Sunday paper, just $1.75 cheaper.

Hello Again

So I've been really lax about updating since my laptop died. We still haven't gotten a new one, but I must admit I don't really mind. I am enjoying summer so haven't really been thinking of blogging much. I haven't been couponing much either. We have been out of town a lot which makes it harder to keep up with everything.

I do want to get back at it though. I thought maybe a good step would be to start with the menu for this week. I had started posting out menu awhile ago, but faltered as my due date grew closer. I was asked again yesterday, "if we had to eat really strange stuff?", so thought this was as good a place as any. Plus, it's probably the easiest thing to do. ;)

I'll try to do the prices, but I might not be able to remember all of them

Digarno pizza $3.00?

Monday-Breakfast for dinner
Bacon Free
Eggs $.23
Hashbrowns $.50
Total $.73

Panarea bread-free from church
lettus-free (Becca gave us a bunch when she went out of town)
Tomato $.29 (1/3lb @$.88 per lb)
Grapes Free from Cub last week
Total $.29

Wednesday-Grilled Pork lion
Pork loin $1.13
Limes $.45
Jalapenos $.18
Cilantro $.50
Corn the Cob $.30
Rice $.50
Total $3.06

Macaroni Grill boxed dinner-$2.50?
Green beans $.35
Total $4.18

Friday-Picnic in the Park
Not sure yet, probably just PB sandwiches and snacks while we wait for the fire works.

Heading to a parade and then grilling with friends. So far I know that I am beinging brats/hotdogs.
Brats-???Not sure anymore I got some last year, but we never used them cause I couldn't have them while prego.
Hotdogs-Free used the Free WYB 3 kraft coupons last year.
Total ???

Well it's not much, but at least it's a start. Hopefully I'll be back soon to update more.
