Winn Dixie Trip

So yall know how I love Winn Dixie. It wasn’t always like this. Sometimes prices are higher than Wal-Mart. BUT if you combine sale prices with coupons they beat Walmart every time. This is where stock piling come in. I buy just the good deals & pull the rest of my need items from my stocked pantry. This along with menu planning has really helped our food budget. I also meal plan differently. Instead of deciding what we are going to eat then shopping I look at the sale papers & let that dictate what dishes we will be eating. For example today they had rump roast B1G1. Pork chops were the same. So tonight we had grilled pork chops. We also had baked potatoes (on sale last week) and because corn was $0.20 an ear we also had grilled corn. I was able to grill everything so that saved on electricity.

I was also able to use my rain checks from last week. THAT was useful let me tell you. Butter was my main saver. Normally I get butter (not margarine) from where ever is cheapest which is sometimes Wal-mart for $3 a lb. WD brand is normally $3.50. Last week however they had Land O Lakes for $2.50. Great deal as butter seems to be on the upswing nationally. When I went last Monday night they were out but I got a rain check for 6 packages. I went today and normally they are $4.29. Thats a savings of $1.79 lb or $10.74 for all 6. That my friends is a good deal. Even at Wal-marts cheapest price of $3 I still saved a total of $3.

So do you see how stockpiling & using sales can make some places cheaper than others? I still shop at Wal-mart for some things. I am just more careful about where I get all my items from.

OMG! Rumor has it there are to be SIX thats right SIX inserts in this Sundays Paper. I just might have to wake up at 3am to make sure I get one…..ok three. I know there are to be at least 3. One Smart Source, 1 Red Plum & 1 P&G. But rumor is there will also be an additional Smart Source, a Pepsico Moments, & a Target P&G. Now thats where I am excited. Since they are for Target only they are “store” coupons. Which means you can “stack” them with manufacturer coupons for additional savings. (Yes I know….kinda pathetic how excited I am)

    Spring Cleaning

    I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. This week is our spring break here. I have a few projects to tackle at home like decluttering & deep cleaning. Also now that we have another family member living with us we have had to rearrange bedrooms. Basically I moved the soon to be 4 y/o in with the 12 y/o. Neither are to happy as one lost privacy & the other lost a place to play with her toys.

    Also I am giving my coupon binder a major overhaul. I plan to (hopefully) post pictures of the finished product.

    Anyone else have any spring cleaning goals they are working on this week?

    HAPPY EASTER

    From my family to yours Happy Easter. I hope you have fun celebrating it however you choose.

    Oreo Truffles

    These are amazing. I make them for my husband & for Christmas gifts too. Let me know if you try them how you like them.

    Oreo Truffles

    36 oreos (original) (I have used mint ones at Christmas & liked them)

    One 8oz pkg cream cheese (at room temp)

    Melting chocolate (white or chocolate…..not chocolate chips) (I use Almond bark)

    Directions

    Crush oreos into fine crumble….no large chucks then mix with cream cheese. I find it easiest to do this in a food processor. Roll into balls. Bigger than a marble but smaller than a golf ball. Place on plate that has wax paper on it. Refrigerate about 30- min to firm. Dip each ball in melted chocolate & place back on wax paper & put back in fridge till firm. Store in fridge until ready to eat.

    I make them big enough for 2 bites….any bigger & it will kill you.

    Don’t use double stuff or reduced fat or golden.

    Corn & Crab Soup
