I killed it Today!

Today I got some killer deals. Of course, the cashier scared me again. Before he would take the coupons he said he had to clear them with the manager. Oh geez! Thankfully, they took them. His manager told them that they aren't taking internet coupons if they are black and white now. Thank goodness I printed in color.

FREE TP, AGAIN!!!! I bought 3 things of it.

Yoplain yo plus - on sale for $2, minus $1.50 coupon and $-1.00 e-coupon = made .50 cents
I did that twice. Then I bought another one and just used a $1.00 internet coupon. Total 3 FREE packages of Yo plus yogurt.

Multigrain Cheerios
Large package on sale for 2.50. -.75 e-coupon, plus -.75 MFG coupon-.33 grocery deal= $.67

Honey Nut Cheerios
1.67 on sale -.50 e-coupon, -50 mfg coupon = .67 cents each (i did that twice)

Regularly 1.88, On sale for $1.50, subtract .33 grocery deal = 1.17 ea

On sale for 1.25, - .50 e-coupon, -.35 MFG coupon (doubled) = .05, 5 cents!

Lean Hot Pockets
We get these at regular price sometimes cause Nick HAS to have these. You may remember the pizza addiction. This week they were on sale for $1.50 plus I had a coupon top of that for -1.25 off of six. Total was 1.30 each. I bought 12. Seriously, 12.

My total grocery bill this week was only 89 bucks. I got Pert Plus, diapers for cheap again, etc and still came in low. We are starting to reap the benefits of this couponing deal. I will be doing the triple coupon thing at Harris Teeter tomorrow and I will let you know how it goes.

Pixel Scrapper July 2017 Blog Train

This was a lot of fun!  Most of my artist endeavors have fallen to the wayside now that the kids are out for summer.  I was able to squeeze out a little time for myself.  I needed a few backgrounds to scrapbook our trip to Florida this year, so I created the backgrounds and elements below.  Enjoy!

Low Fat, Vegan, Spicy Senegalese Peanut Soup

I had the most amazing vegan soup at Revolutionary Soup the other week.  I haven't stopped thinking about how delicious it was... and that was two weeks ago.  I wondered if I could come up with something similar on my own.  I scoured the web and found some delicious looking recipes but none of them were quite right.  I ended up having to play around quite a bit.

While experimenting, I tried versions with lite coconut milk.  I figured if it worked, I'd then work on finding a lower fat alternative but it really didn't add much at all to the dish.  I ended up omitting it all together.  By contrast, the curry powder was absolutely critical.  It added incredible depth to the soup.  I used Tandoori seasoning (my favorite curry powder blend by Penzey's).

I was able to reduce the fat in this dish quite a bit by using PB2 in lieu of full fat peanut butter.  Powdered peanut butter has all of the flavor of peanut butter but 85% less fat.  You can find it at the link I provided or…

Scrapbooking THAILAND Freebie!

After years of neglect on this blog, I'm reemerging so I can share one of my passions: scrapbooking.  I've been doing scrapbooking for over 15 years.  I started out scrapbooking on paper but I have transitioned over to completely digital scrapbooking in the last 7 or so years.

Most of the time I just use whatever freebies I can find but I wasn't able to find a lot of scrapbooking elements and papers to properly document my Thailand travels so I decided to create my own.  Thailand is a very vibrant country and I went with very saturated colors to reflect that.

I hope you are able to enjoy this freebie.   Please feel free to leave me a link to what you create with it!  You can download this kit for personal use only here at dropbox.

Also, here is a link to a new collab project I'm working on with Pixel Scrapper!  You can download the elements/papers individually here.
