Eat Better America!

Eat Better America: Simple Solutions for a Healthier You

Eat Better America is a great online tool for recipes and coupons! You do have to sign up to receive the newsletter and to print the coupons, but it is well worth it! Right now, they have a coupon for Gold Medal Flour, $.50 off 1, which you will be able to print 2 per computer! With the holidays coming up, I know this will be much needed and you can pair them with sales for greater savings.

PS--if you don't want newsletters and such crowding your personal email that you use for friends and family, create a new one just for freebies, newsletters and coupons at a free site like gmail, yahoo or even aol!

Pumpkin Shortage?

Update: Here is an article from a local newspaper about this...stock up now!

I've read that some parts of the country, we are experiencing a pumpkin puree shortage. I didn't believe it, but yesterday, I went to Weis and Stauffer's and they were both out of their store brand large cans of pumpkin. Has anyone heard about this? Ugh, I guess there won't be any coupons for it around the holidays :( I love pumpkin, it's great for soups, breads, muffins and my most favorite dessert right now, pumpkin upside down cake. Here is the recipe.

Grocery Deals this weekend

This weekend I hit Weis and Stauffer's (SKH) to shop for us and my parents. Here is the breakdown:

This was what I bought at Weis this weekend

Total before savings: $95.04
Total coupon savings: $17.40
Total club savings: $23.66

Total OOP: $57.98

This is my SKH trip.

Total before savings: 67.20
Total coupons: $18.90

Total OOP: $48.30

So, how did I do? Well, at both Weis and SKH, I spent $41.28, which is still over budget. Michael's 1st birthday is this Friday, so I know I had to buy a bunch of baking supplies that normally I don't buy, so I am over our budget by $5.83 this month, which stinks, but I will find a way to make it up! Maybe I will only buy diapers next week or something.......

(PS--the rest of the grocery money was what I bought for my parents)
