Back to school

  • Kari O. responds: “They make safes that attach to your bedpost. Sounds strange but it’s really helpful. Some are even big enough to store a laptop. Here’s one example I found at Target awhile back. They make smaller ones too just for wallets, credit cards, etc. that are cheaper.”

So, I’m sitting back to see what the size requirements will be.”

Also the Calcium gummies are included in this week $6 Nature Made sale. After $3MFG,15% CW, pay with REDcard = $1.99 a bottle. This is a great price if you know someone who uses them (my mom loves them!) I of course, got her hooked when they were Free after ECB over at CVS :)”

Quick ALDI trip for portobello pizzas tomorrow

aldi-812

(Ignore the edge of school supplies at the top here, I was sorting them out for both boys on our table today!) I decided portobello pizzas sounded good for tomorrow, so stopped by ALDI for the mushroom caps and more. Also: The organic strawberries were $2.28 and looked 10x better than the conventional ones at $1.29. I was going to spring for the extra $.99. But I see on my receipt that she just rang them as strawberries, so I got the organic for $1.29. I guess that makes up for a few weeks ago when they double charged me for something else? lol

Organic strawberries, $1.29 (see above).
Blueberries, $.99.
Corn tortillas, $.35.
2 lb Vidalia onions, $.99. Will get $.25 back from Checkout 51.
Lime, $.15.
Flour tortillas, $.89.
Four packs portobello mushrooms, $7.96.

Paid $12.84 with $.25 back = $12.59.

  • A heads up from feelgood: “Check your mperks. On mine I have FREE dozen eggs, FREE Aunt Millie’s buns, FREE Baby Ray bbq sauce, and FREE Meijer shave prep. If you’re near a Meijer Grand Opening store, 4-pk Angel Soft bath tissue is $0.89, and there’s a $1.00/2 mperks coupon. There’s a $2.00/1 mperks store coupon on Breyer’s ice cream, great if you have the $1.50/1 MQ printable. I also loaded the mperks $1.00/1 JIF and $1.00/1 Smuckers. Next week JIF and Smuckers will be 2/$4 and get 24 oz Aunt Millie’s bread FREE when you buy one JIF and one Smuckers. So $2.00 for all three!” The free items may be for people near grand opening stores.

Reader requests

  • From Laura: “I’m having major issues with the Georgia Pacific “Smart Must Haves” system accepting my uploaded photo’s. Kitty, how did you submit your photo(s)? Did you take one photo (like we do for Ibotta) or in small segments to zoom in on each part of the receipt? I’ve tried both methods and can’t seem to get this receipt to go though their system. HELP!”
  • One from karen: “I am looking for the best price on shelled pecans out near Oswego/Naperville. need about 10 pounds so they are pricy! Thanks in advance for ideas.”
  • Diane asks: “I’m thinking about getting this printer because mine died. Does anyone have this model? What do you think of it? Thanks!”
  • On the Veggie Fest, peaches is wondering: “Anybody have any idea how much they charge for the food at the food tents? It sounds like there are going to be lots of vegetarian restaurants and catering places, selling food. It is free admission, but their website said that they got 25,000 visitors last year. I am sure they will be giving out some free samples, but when 25,000 people show up, the free samples are only going to go so far. It is interesting when you look at the people speaking there, out of all the doctors speaking, at least five of them are doing their presentation only in Spanish. I remember reading once that this vegetarian fest has volunteers that go through all the trash to figure out what is recyclable. I think they encourage restaurants to avoid using plastic as much as possible, and so 90% of the trash is recycled. Even the toothpicks are recycled.”

Target

  • From Shandelle, for those not finding Pasta Chips: “I emailed Pasta Chips and their customer support are super nice! I was told only some Super Targets have them for now. But they offered to mail me some coupons good until the end of the year to make up for limited availability in my area which I thought was nice of them.”

Ultra Foods

  • From feelgood: “For anyone who still has a Centrella ad from the week that ended yesterday 8/5, check to see if there’s a manufacturer coupon for $3 off $10 worth of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, Country Crock, Imperial, and Promise.

Quick replenishing shopping

8-4-14-aldi

We’ve been out of town for my brother’s wedding for the past few days (more on that later!) and just got in late last night — so today I dragged the kids to the library to return overdue books, then to ALDI and Pete’s to replenish our produce and milk collection, basically sans coupons. ALDI had organic strawberries for $2.29 and Pete’s had organic cherries for $1.99/lb, so that was pretty cool.

ALDI

2 six packs SimplyNature applesauce cups, $2.98.
2 lbs grapes, $1.78.
Milk, $1.99.
Fit & Active wraps, $2.29.
Corn tortillas, $.35.
Flour tortillas, $.89.
Eggs, $.99.
Blueberries, $1.29.
2 lbs organic strawberries, $4.58.

Paid $17.44. The eggs and milk might still be Villa Park grand opening prices.

Got $.05 off for bringing a bag and used a $5.00 reward from my rewards card. Paid $12.99. Since we got in so late I kind of punted dinner today and have salsa chicken in the crock pot for later with our ALDI tortillas, with corn on the cob on the side and I’ll make guac with the avocados I picked up last week + some garden tomatoes! :)
