  • Aggie found this a possible use for the $1.50 off Perdue Simply Smart Breaded Chicken, “I  don’t know what a good price is for this item because I don’t buy it,  but Walmart has this on sale for $5.48 so $3.98 with coupon.  The picture I saw for the ad had gluten free. The blog was Cookoo for Coupons.”

Dollar Store

  • Joanna found this deal, “hello , i find Gevalia vanilla latte k_cups in dollar store in chicago ridge ,and in 1/11 ($1.00/2 SS2) we had a coupon for any gevalia product.”

Freebies

Groupon

  • Raegan sent suggestion on there’s a Groupon for that, “Might I suggest a facial? Especially if the kids are swimming in Lake Geneva, take a 20 minute drive to RED’s Skincare, there’s a Groupon for that!”

Heads Up

  • Julie sent this, “A heads up to anyone who stocked up on Quaker Instant Oatmeal last October at Jewel when they had the big Quaker sale with the $1/2 tearpads out.  My hubby opened a new box of Apples and Cinnamon and found weird black/brown moldy stuff at the top of most of the pouches near where they are glued shut.  The date code on the box was JUN 07 15 L2 45.  You can see the weird stuff up in the top of the pouch even without opening them.  If you have any boxes with this date code, I would recommend contacting Quaker.  My husband posted a photo to their wall when he contacted them in case anyone has this date code but isn’t sure what to look for.  We have some other boxes with different codes and they don’t seem to be affected.”

Jewel

  • John W. has a comment on the weekly deals, “Pringles aren’t $2 after the buy 8 deal, they are $1. So, you could buy 8 pringles, buy 4 7-Up, get 2 Orville free. Use 2 $1/3 pringles, use 2 $1.50 off coupons, use $1/2 Orville and pay $5.96 for 14 items, or about 42 cents each. Or buy 2 pringles for $1.50 each, 4 7-Up, 2 Orville, use 2 $1.50 coupons, $1/2 Orville, and pay $2.96 for 8 items, or 37 cents each.”
  • Joy reports, “I just got a 1.00 cat. for buying 2 digiorno pizza at jewel” (The national Catalina deal runs through 2/1: Buy two, get $1.00 OYNO. Buy three, get $2.00 OYNO. Buy four or more, get $3.00 OYNO.)

Mariano’s

  • Soapboxtray sent a use for the New Morningstar Farms coupon catalina deal, “I used the coupons today at Mariano’s they usually have the same cat deals but I didn’t get anything. Coupons doubled though so I ended up paying approx 1.19-1.58 a box after doubles.”

Meijer

  • Liz found these deals, “at the Niles Meijer, stove top turkey flavor stuffing is 1.25 with a 1.00 off 1 mperk coupon for .25 stuffing, there is also a 1.00 off 1 mperk for dole dippers and they have chocolate almond on clearance for 1.99 making them .99,  They also have on clearance jalapeno poppers(frozen case on end) normally 10.99 on clearance for 5.49 by Farm Rich 38 oz….I had a 1.50 coupon from a recent insert”

Reader Requests

  • Couponnurse has a question on the Canon Laser Printer,”Can this take a remanufactured cartridge/ink?  I have a Canon Pixma Printer that only takes Original Canon Ink and it gets quite expensive in the long run. Can anyone suggest of a good printer that takes remanufactured cartridge/Ink? Thanks.”

Target

  • Kari O. found some deals, “Target in McHenry closes Saturday, but as part of their closing all clearance clothes get an extra 30% off and stacks with Cartwheels 20% off offer.I got a C9 tank top that retailed for $16.99 for $2.84! I got a bunch of kids clothes for super cheap and even found Goldtoe 6 pack of socks for $2.xx each. Plus some clothes for me and a few things for the hubby. Paid less than $40 and walked out with 4 bags full. The savings almost makes up for the depressing nature of a store closing…. Almost. :'( “
  • Cari reports this deal, “I did the cheese-it deal today too. Grabbed 6 boxes of those along with 2 Keebler town house and 2 club. Used 3 $1/2 cheese it coupons and 2-$1/2 townhouse/ club tear pads. Paid $1/box plus tax.”

  • Post on the Facebook Wall.

If you are sharing a deal from another site or an online coupon, please include the link. If you found a deal at a specific store, please include the location.

Dollar Tree

  • Dani reports on the possible free south beach diet snack bars, “just note that it only works on the snack bars.  my dollar store only had the regular bars and coupon didn’t work.  I was there so thought I would try it out.”

Friday Freebies

  • Continuing on the Burrito topic from yesterday, Feelgood reports. “Shopped at Meijer in Homer Glen last night, they had two varieties of Tina’s burritos. Their weekly ads often advertise Tina’s burritos, so other stores may have them, too”

Jewel

  • Feelgood found a coupon,  “There’s a $1.00/1 Sara Lee snacks coupon to clip on MyMixx” Sara Lee Snacks are tagged $2.00 right now. There is also a printable.
  • Laura also found a coupon for the New Essentials deals, “Also Wild Harvest Organic Facebook page has a new coupon for $1 off when you buy 2 Wild Harvest Frozen Vegetables.
  • LC has a question about MyMixx , “I tried to use it with my 10 digit number but it looked like it needed to enter 11 digits.For those it worked for, did you only need 10 digits for it to work?”
  • Brandy also reports on the some deals of the week, “MyMixx worked this morning at the Jewel on Naper Blvd. in Naperville for those Screamin’ Sicilian Pizza. Also, The deal on Bud Lt. 12pk bottles ($7.99) + 2 Red Baron pizzas ($3ea) =  $13.99 – Instant $5 savings gets sweeter. I unfortunately didn’t find peelies on the Red Baron and don’t have any other coupons… but did find a peelie for $2 off chips for buying a 12pk of Bud Lt. Totinos were $2.50, so ended up getting a 12pk of Bud Lt., 2 Red Baron Pizzas and 1 bag of Totinos for about $9.50.”

Online Shopping

  • Matt comments on refurbished desktop computers, “These are not bad. You can find similar deals like these over on Staples website. They are basically Vista era Dual Core machines that have been refurbished. A Windows 7 Home Premium copy on DVD is $100. So this is fairly cheap for a used machine not for sale on eBay. Although a serious user would want a bigger hard drive and more RAM. I think if you have a little more experience with computers it’s not a bad idea to pick up a used computer from someone like Regency Technologies on eBay. I’ve bought a couple computers from them and I think they are fairly reliable. The only exception being that some of the computer towers they sell do not include operating systems.”

Recipes

  • Nita has a yogurt recipe, “i make home made yougurt all time . 1)1/4 gallon  –2% or whole milk on gas stove until boil turn off.leave it until 20 mnts to cool down 2) Add 4spoon of yogurt culture (reg plain yogurt ) in to the boiled milk. mix well with hand mixer.and cover with top.I use small mason jars and divide it for each use 3)Turn on empty microwave for 2 minutes 4) mixed milk put it in microwave -do not turn on (just for temperature consistant) for 5-6 hour and it will be ready.5)You can put in refrigerate  for 7-10 days.
  • And another from Fran, “I make my own yogurt quite often, too, and pretty much do the same thing as Donna does. When it sits overnight, the temp needs to stay between 105 and 110 in order for the cultures to stay alive and multiplying. To do this, I wrap the covered pan in a couple of beach towels, then put it on a heating pad set on the lowest setting overnight. In the morning, I strain it through re-useable coffee filters (which btw, I just yesterday saw on clearance at Jewel for .99) You could use regular coffee filters, too, or even muslin cloth as a filter. I strain quite a bit of whey off to make it very thick; almost like cream cheese. The longer it strains, the thicker it will be. There are other recipes I’ve found as well on this site: http://nourishedkitchen.com/easy-homemade-yogurt-matsoni/ some of which are very, very easy. This site also has links with ideas for what to do with the leftover whey. Making yogurt is very easy and pretty fool proof as long as you follow the temperature guidelines to keep the cultures alive. Good luck!”
  • Letsshop comments, “You make it sound easy enough ,need to check if I still have a thermometer around ! Thanks about the tip on looking at carton to see if their are live cultures ! Thought it would be good with fresh fruit and maybe freeze for future deserts (: husband and I have a terrible sweet tooth at night ):And really want to loose some weight this year. Thanks Fran ,It sounds a little complicated maintaining  temp. And didn’t realize you had to strain it too !!! will give it try”
  • Kay responds, “Letsshop, my microwave has a probe and temperature cook setting. I put the probe in the milk and set the temp for boiling. The microwave turns off when the milk reaches the temp and then I leave the probe in and the microwave shows the temp as it falls to where I need to mix in the yogurt. Meanwhile I have my slow cooker on low with some water in it. After I mix in the yogurt, it goes into the slow cooker on low overnight. I don’t have to do anything to make this, except mix in the yogurt. When I make stuff on the stove or oven, I often forget about it (luckily my oven turns off if I set cook time). Using the microwave and slow cooker makes it goof proof. I don’t strain mine – just depends how you like it”
  • Paula sent some ideas, “Yes, we’ve made yogurt many times-mostly to avoid ALL the sugar/sweetener in the store-bought stuff.  I love this blog-she makes her own yogurt weekly and tells you all about the process: http://www.salad-in-a-jar.com/skinny-secrets/healthy-homemade-greek-yogurt
  • More from Meg, “I am form India and we make ypgurt(Curd, as we call it) every single day. I don’t watch for temperature or do any measuring. I have been doing this for the past 18 years. I boil milk on the stove..I tried microwave but stove top is the best. I let it boil…just watch that it doen’t boil over.  I let it cool on the stove top until like luke warm …I touch with a finger(clean:)). I pour in a steel or ziploc container and add 1-2 tablespoon of old culture or yogurt. I keep it near the stove or on the counter top. I get a perfect yogurt in 3-4 hours in summer,…it takes about 6 hours in winter. We eat yogurt with rice everyday and I never bought store ones ever. May be one or twice to start a culture. All I can say is it is science but rocket science. :)”

Staples

  • FunSavingATon  comments 100 Hefty CinchSak odor block trash bags $10.99, “These are a breakroom item and quality for the 20% off breakroom coupon in the ad as well as the 25% back in rewards promo. Stack the $1.00/1 manufacturer coupon from the 1/4 RP for a really good deal.”

Wayfair

  • Stacy has a question on the 10% Off Your First Purchase, “Has anyone ordered furniture from Wayfair? I’m considering ordering a sofa from Wayfair. I’m a little hesitant to order furniture without actually sitting on it, so I was hoping to hear from anyone who has ordered with them. Thanks!”
