Sorry it's taken a bit for me to update. I've been busy looking for and getting good deals this week.

Reasor's Deals til Tuesday, Nov. 18--
Chicken for $1.68/lb-
This is in the Reasor's circular and since there is no "brand", so you could probably take this to Wal-Mart and price match (and get Tyson chicken)
*For all you ladies planning on attending our planning session on Make Ahead Meals- stock up on this deal, chicken is rarely this cheap!

Boneless Beef Arm Roast for $1.88/lb-
This would also be great for the ladies attending our session- get two- one for stew and one for roast! This is a good price on roast- usually 2.38/lb

Target: Small bags of Archer Farms coffee for $0.09

Our Super Target sells small bags of coffee for $1.09 (you can find these located near the coffee bean grinders.), you can use this coupon and get them for $0.09! These small bags make perfect additions to gift baskets, by the way. I'm not sure what the print limit is on the coupons (if there is one) so grab a bunch of coupons and fill those gift baskets!

Deals I've gotten this week- Nov. 11

Food Pyramid--
Today is your last day to get a great deal on a Whole Pork Loin roast at Food Pyramid for $1.79/lb. That is a great price! Consider getting two of them. We have a great freezer recipe for Orange Pork Loin. My husband LOVES it and even picky kids eat it!

Also, today is the last day to get up to 6 cans of Green Giant canned veggies for $.39 a can- even off-brand veggies aren't that cheap!

Chicken Noodle and Tomato soups are on sale as well for $.49 a can- up to 3. That's $.10 cheaper than at Wal-mart right now!

Gala or Red Delicious apples are $.69/lb- stock up and make some apple butter, apple pie filling, or just cut up, add some lemon juice and freeze to use for parties with dip or fondue!

I know, you're thinking- "Walgreens?" but they do actually have some great deals if you use their in-store coupons with manufacturer's coupons.

Betty Crocker Frosting--on sale $0.99 each after in-ad coupon
Use $0.55/1 printable coupon
$0.44 each after coupons

*For first-timers with the printable coupons, you'll have to register with an account with these places. (ex. Betty Crocker, Nestle) The most they do is send you a newsletter each week with great recipes and new coupons. For me, printable coupons are my only source of coupons and all the stores accept them now!

*Remember- Wal-Mart price matches! If you find a great deal in any other ad (ex. Reasors, Food Pyramid), just take the ad in with you to Wal-Mart and the cashier will change the price at the register. Just make sure they're the same brand!!

Why start a blog?

Welcome to my first post as a blogger. After a friend started her own blog about all the deals she was saving on in her small town in Kansas, I decided to check out some of the blogs she was finding these deals at. My favorite Mom-blog by far has been and she gives a great rundown of all the deals you can find at Target, Wal-Mart and Walgreens, plus a lot of other stores that unfortunately, we don't have in Tulsa. Through this though, I have been able to find many great deals here in our own town through doubling coupons (store and manufacturer's) and price matching.

Through my friend, Jenny, I was introduced to "Once a Month cooking" or as we call it- "Make-Ahead Freezer Meals" where we prepare multiple main courses in one day to place in our freezer to use throughout the month. Through this process, she and I have saved time and money. We are looking forward to teaching other stressed moms this process and will be holding a planning session, hopefully, within the next month. This blog will also serve as a place to help these moms by me posting new freezer meal recipes and upcoming sessions.

So there you go! I had just been learning and saving so much that I felt as if other moms could benefit from it as well. This is a place were all of that information is accessible to those moms looking to save time and money! So let's get started!!
