Kara's 12/19/2012 Publix Trip

Hey ya'll! Sorry this post is so late. I've been enjoying spending time with family and eating lots of yummy food so I figured it could wait a little longer this time! :)
Did you have a wonderful Christmas???
I got a new laptop that runs windows 8 (which I LOVE btw!) and this is my first blog post with it so I'm super excited! I loved all the family time and my mom made an amazing Christmas dinner. Of course our refrigerator decided to mess up that night though so ALL of our leftovers ruined along with some other things. :( I am still very sad about it!
I didn't make it to Publix the day after Christmas because I was busy and wasn't able to get a list together so this is my haul from the week before.
Total before coupons - $102.59
Total after coupons - $43.10
Total savings - $59.49
Here's what I got and what I paid for each item after coupon:
2 - Armour Meatballs ($1.99 each)
4 - Bertolli Pasta Sauces ($0.64 each)
2 - GM Chex Mix ($0.28 each)
2 - Hunt's Ketchup ($0.88 each)
2 - Kraft Mayo (-$0.36 overage!)
6 - Heinz Homestyle Gravy ($0.66 each)
6 - Idahoan Mashed Potatoes ($0.12 each)
4 - Pepsi 2L ($0.93 each)
1 - Always Pads ($6.07)
1 - Publix Sliced Cheese ($2.34)
2 - Hillshire Farm Lunch Meat ($5.99 each)
6 - Ronzoni Pasta ($0.35 each)
1 - Publix Pasta Sauce (penny item)
1 - Publix Ground Pork (I meant to get ground beef, oops!) ($4.58)
Not my best, but there were some things I didn't have coupons for that we had to have.
I hope you had a great Christmas and you have a Happy New Year!
Also, Happy Couponing in 2013! (It's strange to think I won't coupon again til next year)
Thanks for stopping by!

Kayla's Publix Trip 12.20.12

I hope y'all had a very Merry Christmas & are keeping warm! It's been a cold, rainy, yucky mess here for the past few days.
I didn't buy much this week, compared to most weeks anyway. My stockpile has made it possible to buy less & less each week, so while some of you consider it "hoarding" I see it as a sort of safety net....and I'm very proud of it, haha:)
I feel like I did pretty well this week though, I made money on several items so that always makes me happy! My total would've been much lower if not for having to buy my dear husband his beloved Diet Mt. Dews, they were BOGO this week though so I won't complain too much.
Now, on to the good stuff:)
***not pictured- 2 Breakstone's 16oz Sour Cream & 1 Diet Mt. Dew***
Publix 12.20.12
Total Before Coupons - $83.82
Total After Coupons - $14.12
Total Savings - $69.70
Here's what I got:
2 - Bertolli Marinara Sauce, $0.39 each
2 - Bertolli Alfredo Sauce, $0.39 each
2 - Breakstone's 16oz Sour Cream, $0.25 each
2 - I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, FREE! + $1.50 OVERAGE!
4 - Knorr Pasta Sides, FREE! + $1.40 OVERAGE!
2 - Kraft 30oz Mayonnaise, FREE! +  $0.72 OVERAGE!
6 - Heinz 12oz Homestyle Gravy, $0.65 each
3 - Idahoan Mashed Potato Pouches, $0.12 each
2 - Hunt's 24oz Tomato Ketchup, $0.88 each
3 - Ore Ida Frozen Potatoes, $0.78 each
4 - Campbell's Cream Soup, FREE! + $0.02 OVERAGE!
I ended up making $3.64 in overages & I was able to use my $5 off $30 Target grocery coupon that I had printed:)
Well, I'll see y'all next year!
 I wish you a very happy New Year and lots of couponing luck:)

New $5 off $30 Printable Target Grocery Coupon!

Happy Sunday y'all:)
I hope everyone is keeping warm, it's rained all day here so I've spent the day printing & clipping coupons, of course! I just found this $5 off $30 grocery coupon on & had to share it with everyone! If your Publix considers Target a competitor, they'll accept it! Just be sure to check your local Publix's coupon policy frequently before heading out, they are subject to change at anytime and you don't want to get in there and have any surprises at the register!

You can print the coupon twice:) It can be found by clicking the link above (not the picture) or HERE.
Just be quick, it'll probably run out pretty fast!
Happy couponing!

Kayla's Publix, Kroger & Target Deals 12.13.12

I'm a terrible blogger y'all.
I get so side-tracked that I completely forget to share my trips here:(
I've not shared my last few weeks trips but I'm happy to say that I've now ventured into couponing at Kroger AND Target, along with Publix, of course! It's been a learning curve but I love it. Since I've been MIA the past few weeks, I'm pretty excited to share this weeks trip with y'all....I finally got my entire grocery total under $100 (not counting Target)...$96.52 to be exact!!! That's been a goal of mine since the beginning:)
I've decided I'm going to try including the price I pay for each item, after coupons. I really enjoy seeing a price breakdown on other couponers' hauls, I thought y'all might too! Let me know if there's anything else you'd like included and I'll do my best to make it happen:)
Anyway, enough rambling, on to the fun stuff!

Publix 12.13.12

Since Kara went with me & I had two $5 off $25 Save-a-Lot coupons, (they're a competitor for our Publix!) we split my items up and was able to use both of my $5/$25 coupons! That helped a lot!!! If your Publix considers them a competitor, be on the lookout for those coupons! We'll try to share when we find them.

Now, on to the trip I'm the most proud of this week, Target! I went in there for the Suave Body Wash because it was a much better deal there than anywhere else....I left with 6-12 months worth of razors for almost freeeeeeeee, TWO $5 gift cards, the 4 body washes I had originally went in for (they were 50% more value size bottles too, Score!) and a catalina coupon for $1.50 off any one Schick HydroSilk Razor or Refill (that's the type of razors I bought)  I was on Cloud Nine!!! If you see a deal, ALWAYS check your coupons! I carry mine with me everywhere I go, you never know when you'll need them:)

Target 12.13.12
Total Before Coupons - $70.74
Total After Coupons - $26.76
Savings - $43.98 + $10 in Gift Cards & $1.50 coupon
To get the razor deal, I stacked two BOGO coupons (worth $12.99 each!) & two $2.00 off coupons...Target had the razors on sale for $9.49 and the 4 pack refills were $14.99. They had a promotion going on where if you bought two razors or refills they would give you a $5 gift card, I bought four, so I ended up with $10 in gift cards:)
That means I only paid $18.98 for 10 razor refills & 2 razors! If I subtract the $10 gift cards it would mean I really only paid $8.98 for them, that's less than just ONE of the razors would've cost me!!!!
The Suave Body Wash was a really great deal too, it was on 'price-cut' for $1.44 each and I had two $1/2 coupons, meaning I only paid $0.94 each. I even lucked up & got the value size bottle that had 50% more in them:)
I had a great time shopping Thursday with my sister and had a wonderful lunch at Olive Garden with her & our Mother. I can't wait for next week's trip! :)
Y'all have a wonderful week, a Merry Christmas & happy couponing!

We have so much fun together so I know it'll be a good day!

Kara's Kroger & Publix Trip! 12/5/12

Hello! I hope you are having a fantastic week so far! I did my weekly shopping trip this morning and stocked up on quite a few things! I decided to shop Kroger this week too because Publix only had a few things in the ad that we needed and Kroger was having a better sale on meat. I get so confused with Kroger's coupon policy though and I never do as well as I'd like to when I shop there, but I still like to try because I'm confident that eventually it'll just click and i'll have it figured out!
So here's how I did at Kroger:
Before Coupons - $151.36
After Coupons - $90.57
Savings - $60.79
I got:
10 - All Laundry Detergents :)))))
6 - Tombstone Pizza
3 - Hamburger Helper
2 - Quaker Cookies
4 - Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 - Progresso Recipe Starter (I found these on clearance!)
2 - Campbell's Skillet Sauces
1 - Kroger Hamburger Buns
1 - Kroger Hotdog Buns
1 - Kroger Loaf Bread
2 - Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 - Fresh Ground Chuck
2 - Hillshire Farm Sausage
2 - Jimmy Dean Sausage
1 - Kroger Large Eggs (free wyb sausage!)
& here's how I did at Publix:
Before Coupons - $133.11
After Coupons -$58.67
Savings - $74.44
I got:
7 - Angel Soft 12 Double Rolls Toilet Paper (so proud of these!)
3 - Wisk Laundry Detergent
4 - Dial Body Wash
1 - 8pk. Juicy Juice
1 - Publix Hot Chocolate  (penny item!!)
5 - Foldger Coffee Refills
4 - Simply Cut Potatoes
1 - Lipton Green Tea
My favorite things to stockpile are paper towels and anything laundry or bathroom related! It never gets old and you're always gonna need it! lol The toilet paper ended up being about .37 cents a roll which comes out to be approximately 0.011 cents per square foot. It was definitely a great stock up price! We were desperately needing to stock up on Laundry Detergent because we are about out so I was very glad that it was on sale this week!
All total (Kroger & Publix) I was able to get $284.47 worth of groceries for $149.24! Savings of $135.23!
I LOVE Coupons! :)

Homemade Peanut the microwave!

I'm so excited to share this recipe with all of you! My mom made it tonight and it tasted so good and it was very simple! I told her she could go live with the Amish now :) That is, if Amish people used microwaves...
Here's what you'll need:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups shelled peanuts
1/8 tsp salt
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1tsp vanilla
***Please be VERY careful while making this because the mixture gets very very very hot!!!***
1. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Combine sugar, corn syrup & salt in a microwave safe bowl. (do not use a plastic bowl because it will melt!)
3. Stir in the peanuts and microwave on high until it turns light brown. This took about 9 minutes or so. (stir twice while cooking)
4. Stir in the butter (or margarine), baking soda and vanilla.
5. Quickly spread the mixture onto your greased baking sheet.
6. Let cool! (We stuck ours in the fridge)
7. Break into pieces and enjoy! :)

Kara's Publix Trip 11/28/12

Hey everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I spent lots of time with family and stuffed myself til I was nearly sick lol. Then I enjoyed some shopping with my mom, sister and boyfriend from 8 pm to 6:30 am. I LOVE Black Friday! It excites me so much and I know a lot of people say it's crazy and I agree, it is, but I look forward to it all year long! I'm sure it has something to do with getting the same rush as when I'm at the checkout counter with all my coupons. And we all know how addicting that rush is lol. I was finally able to snatch some towels up this year before they were all gone and that was a big accomplishment! We needed the towels last year, but didn't get to them in time so this year it was number one on the list! Do you know how difficult it is to dry off with towels that have holes all in them? lol they were much needed! We was actually able to get everything we were after this year so it was a lot of fun, but very tiring!
I didn't get to Publix last week because of Thanksgiving which was fine because we had everything we needed for our Thanksgiving dinner and we had plenty of leftovers so I didn't have to worry about supper for a few nights. I did go to Publix today though and it's a good thing because my dad ate the last of the oreos from my shopping trip the week before last and he had no other snacks in the house (He can seriously eat anything and everything and not gain a pound! Makes me so jealous!) and we needed some things for supper the rest of the week!
The Publix ad this week wasn't great and I didn't do my best, but I'm still proud of it so here it is!
Total before coupons - $245.49
Total after coupons - $126.57
Total Savings - $118.92
It doesn't look like a whole lot (maybe that's just me?), but the meat was where most of the money went!
Here's what all I got:
6 - Chips Ahoy Cookies
3 - Pepperidge Farm Bread
2 - Mrs. Pauls Seafood Entrees
2 - Juicy Juice 8pk.
4 - Cheez-It Crackers
5 - Stouffer's Frozen Entrees
7 - Snuggle Fabric Softener
4 - A&W Diet Root Beer
4 - Rice Krispies Cereal
1 - Publix Gallon Milk (free wyb 4 cereals)
2 - Lysol Cleaners
1 - baby carrots
2 - 3ct. Garlic
1 - Progresso Recipe Starter
1 - Publix Garlic Powder
1 - Publix Basil
1 - 4pk Green Giant Peas
1 - Publix Bleach (penny item!!!!)
2 - Gardien meals
1 - Birthday Card
2 - Pkgs. Mueller Egg Noodles
1 - Boston Butt Roast
1 - Chuck Roast
1 - Top Sirloin Steak
Here's the menu plan for tonight and the rest of this week:
 **You can view the recipe by clicking on it**
Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
(I can't find the recipe I use, but I'll keep looking!)
Stouffer's Frozen Entree
My menu may change depending on leftovers.
I'd love to see any good deals you got or some new recipe ideas!
Thanks for stopping by!

Proctor and Gamble Pink Cookware Set from Good Cook's Hope Line!

Hello! How's your Monday so far??? I received my free pink cookware from P&G today so I'd have to say my Monday is going pretty good! For those of you who know me, or if you saw the blog before my sister and I redone it, you know that I love the color PINK!
 I received this cookware set for purchasing $30.00 worth of P&G products. The total had to be $30.00 BEFORE coupons, so after coupons I actually only spent maybe $15.00! This promotion ran last month for Breast Cancer Awareness.
They even packaged it up nicely!
I received a 9.25" Saute Pan, Colander, Flexible Non-slip Cutting Board, Flexible Nylon Turner and Nylon Tongs all for FREE! This cookware set retails for $50.00! Let me just say, this set is very nice! It's all nylon and dishwasher safe. I was a little worried about the cutting board since it's flexible because I've had two flexible ones and I cut right through those, but this one is very thick so I shouldn't have that problem and it also has a non-slip back.
I can't wait to cook with these! Just in time for Thanksgiving cooking also! :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day :)

I hope everyone has a great week!

Roasted Garlic Chicken Leg Quarters with Homemade Pan Dripping Gravy Recipe

Hey y'all! Remember those chicken leg quarters I bought on sale for $0.99/lb this past week at Publix? Well, I hope you picked some up as well, 'cause you're definitely going to want to make this! It was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! Now, I'm not going to lie, I'm not a huge fan of dark meat chicken or stuff on the bone but this dish changes everything. It was super simple so it will make a great weeknight meal (or weekend!) for you busy moms out there. This was my very first time to make homemade pan dripping gravy & it was a total success, thankfully:)
Ok, I'm definitely no photographer and my picture does this dish no you're just going to have to make it and see for yourself how delicious it is;) I paired it with some Idahoan Baby Red Instant Potatoes & cheesy baked squash and zucchini (I'll also share that recipe)....the boxed potatoes, squash & zucchini were all on sale this week at Publix and the Kraft shredded cheese was on sale last week! This entire meal made 4 servings and cost me maybe $5 total because I bought all of the ingredients on sale & with coupons. That's only $1.25 PER SERVING!!! You can't hardly beat that! Alright, I'll get on with sharing the recipe:)
Roasted Garlic Chicken Leg Quarters
4-5 cloves garlic, finely minced (or 4-5 tsp pre-minced raw garlic)
1 tsp dried oregano leaf
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin
dash of black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
4 chicken leg quarters
3/4 cup chicken broth
Heat oven to 425°.
Combine garlic, oregano, salt, chili powder, cumin, & black pepper in a small bowl. Add olive oil & mix well. Mash it together with a fork until it forms a paste consistency.
Wash chicken leg quarters, pat dry & cut off any excess skin. Place the chicken pieces in a large baking dish, pat the spice mixture over each piece & under the skin. Pour 3/4 cup of chicken broth into the baking dish, around the chicken. Bake for 60-80 minutes, or until juices run clear.
Yields 4 servings.
Homemade Pan Dripping Gravy
cold water
1 cup chicken broth
pan drippings from chicken leg quarters
To make this gravy, simply remove the chicken leg quarters from the pan once they're finished cooking. Carefully, pour the hot drippings & chicken broth into a small pot and begin heating on medium high, until boiling. Mix about 2-3 tbsp cornstarch with approximately 1/8 cup cold water until it forms a slurry. Next, add the slurry mixture to the boiling pan drippings, stirring constantly.  Allow to cook for 1 minute or until desired thickness is reached. It may be necessary to add more of the cornstarch slurry if your gravy doesn't thicken with the first mixture.
Cheesy Baked Yellow Squash & Zucchini
1 large yellow squash, thinly sliced
1 large zucchini, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded Mozzarella & Pepperjack Cheese
olive oil 
Jane's Krazy Mixed Up Salt, to taste (LOVE this stuff!)
black pepper, to taste
Heat oven to 425°.
 Place the sliced squash & zucchini in a shallow baking dish, drizzle with olive oil & toss to coat. Next, season to taste with the Krazy Salt (you can use regular salt if needed) & pepper. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until almost tender. Remove from oven, sprinkle with cheese & bake for another 8-10 minutes or until cheese is browned & bubbly. Enjoy!
Let me know what y'all think!

Homemade Pumpkin Dog Treats

I'm so excited to share these homemade pumpkin dog treats with you! They are healthy and your dog will love them and love you for making them! It's a fairly simple recipe and they are pretty fun to make. We made two batches the other night and the dogs have ate nearly all of them so I made another batch tonight.
Here's what you'll need
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
7 tbsp water
2 tbsp molasses
1/3 cup oats (optional)
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix the pumpkin, molasses, vegetable oil and water together in a bowl.
3. Add the whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon & oats to the mixture.
4. Stir all that until it's all mixed together. The dough should be soft. I found it easiest if I just used my hands, but you can do it however you prefer.
5. Take some parchment or wax paper and lay it out. (I used parchment paper and put some whole wheat flour on it.)
6. Pat the dough out with your hand then use a roller (or cup) and roll the dough out flat.
6. Use a cookie cutter (if you don't have one you can just make balls and then flatten them out like cookies!) and cut out the treats from the dough.
**I got my dog bone cookie cutter, along with a dog treat recipe, from Target in the dollar bins. Score!!!**
7. Place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
8. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the dough is hardened.
9. Let cool!
**These are chewy, but I still don't give my dogs the whole treat because they turned out pretty big and I don't want them to choke on them.**
I hope your dogs enjoy these as much as my dogs do! Thanks for stopping by!!
**Be sure your dogs have no food allergies before giving these to them**
