I'm such a dork I was overly excited about this trip. Also I got some great coupon organizing tips from some of the ladies I ran in to in the store.
Lesson for today: I'm still an amateur at this and apparently I'm not organized enough but I'm learning :-)
After my high off of the savings at Harris Teeter I then went over to Kroger to see if I could find any good deals there. I usually always have great luck their with their already low prices, sales prices, and coupons too.
Kroger's Deals for Today:
Covergirl Simply Powder Foundation Makeup: Regular price $6.79 (yes you read that right, that is the REGULAR price all day every day!) - $1.00 off coupon = $5.79 that's the best deal ever! I also have a $3.00 off two Covergirl products coupon that I will use next week or the week after. Like I said this is the price every day so I didn't feel like I had to stock up.
Glad ForceFlex Tall Kitchen Bags with Febreeze scent: (I'm a total trash bag snob, this is the only brand I will buy because they NEVER break or tear) Regular price $7.99, on sale for $6.99 - $1.00 off coupon = $5.99 (that's a pretty good price for a box of 40 bags)
Herbal Essence Hair Gel: Regular price $3.09 each, on sale 2 for $5, I bought two and had a $1.00 off purchase of two Herbal Essence or Aussie Hair Product coupon = $4.00 ($2 each) = Great price!
Suave Shampoo & Conditioner : $4.08 for both - $1.00 off purchase of two Suave products = $3.08 ($1.54 each) = pretty good price, you can sometimes do better if you wait for a sale at Target but still the savings are around the same regardless. I used to be a snob and never use Suave because I thought it was cheap and would be horrible for my hair however I recently started using it due to such great coupon deals I kept finding on it and WOW it is pretty awesome believe it or not.
After all that shopping, I'm exhausted but saving all that money was sooo worth it. :)
May end up needing to turn our fourth bedroom in to my stockpile room one day. Not any time soon though. For now it all fits nicely on a shelf in the linen closet in the hallway ha ha.
On another note:
I know my blogs are long but only two people actually read them anyway so...
Last week we tried a new Pinterest recipe. I thought oh man that sounds good but was worried about what the results might be but man it was delicious!
White Chicken Chilli:
1 8oz box of Fat Free Cream Cheese
1 packet of Ranch Mix
I can of black beans (drained & rinsed)
1 can of sweet yellow corn
2 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
Season as desired. The recipe called for onion powder and cummin and something else I didn't have so I improvised with Creole seasoning, minced onion, black pepper, and red pepper
Cook on low for 6-8 hours in a crock pot stiring halfway through if you can. I didn't because it cooked all day while I was at work. Also, the chicken should easily break apart but if not just use a knife and fork and shred the chicken before serving.
You can serve over rice or eat by itself. We ate it by itself with a side of tortilla chips. I forgot to take an after picture because I was so distracted by how delicious it was.
So easy, cheap, and delicious!
