Ways to Save, Part 5: Drugstore Games at Walgreens

…who needs it, and it’s just not something that’s going to get me in the store. So, how do I save at Walgreens anymore? Well, I’m still in a waiting mode, but the following steps will still save from buying at regular stores. Keep clipping coupons for health and beauty items to use in conjunction with Walgreens sales and RRs. Look at each week’s advertised sales. See if there are items that will earn a RR AND there is a…

Chalkboard Label Jars – A Five Minute, Three Dollar Update

chalkboard label jars

…hese jars that have sat here looking like this for about, oh…8 years. And all of a sudden I remembered the labels. Isn’t it funny why sometimes a thought comes to you out of the blue? I mean, I walk by these jars multiple times every day on the way to my workroom and not once in the last month has the thought occurred to me that I could use my $3 chalkboard labels on them. Anyway, about five minutes later, the jars looked like this:…

Drugstore Deals

There were lots of good deals I could’ve bought at Rite Aid this week and I did plan on going back to use another $3 off $15 coupon but never had the time. I’m OK, though, with the deal I ended up with: 2 Kashi cereals, BOGO @ $4.99 -FREE Kashi cereal coupon from vocalpoint= 0 2 Sure deodorants, BOGO @ $2.99 -$1.50/1 (men) & $1/1 = .49 Acnomel acne treatment, $6.99 ($6 SCR) Dentyne cup, $2.50 -$1.50/1 = $1 -$3/$15 RA coupon =…

Thrifted Chalkboard Napkin Rings

Chalk Napkin Rings from Thrift Store Finds Make a Great Gift! An Oregon Cottage

…s and tied them and the marker up with an gold-orange ribbon. Add simple diy napkins and chalk to your rings and label one of the rings as an example. Of course, you don’t have to give them away at all if you don’t want to! I love how the painted rings work as place cards or for seasonal sayings, and even as a way to be able to label family member’s napkins when reusing them for a few meals instead of purchasing paper napkins….

Mid-Week Drugstore Deals

…me as a check? See what I mean? There are real savings possibilities at the drugstores. It’s pretty cool. Walgreens Since they did away with their Easy Saver Catalog and rebates, I have not found the savings I did before at Walgreens. Now I go maybe about once a month if I see a particularly good deal. And I always try to do two transactions so I don’t have to take any Register Rewards (RRs) home. They expire after two weeks and I d…

How To Roast And Freeze Beets


For some reason beets seem to be a pretty divisive vegetable- you either like them or you think they taste like “dirt.” Personally, I don’t get it. I mean, we can buy beet sugar for pete’s sake. But I’m the lone beet-liker (beet-liker? Do you think this phrase will catch on?) in my family. The kids won’t touch them and Brian merely puts up with them. So I don’t serve them often and I…

Easy Garlic Dill Pickles

refrigerator pickles

…so particular about the head space. These have more like 1/2″, but it covers the cukes, so it’s OK. Label the jar(s), making sure they include the day as well as the month and year. That’s because you will need to let these “cure” in the refrigerator about 3 to 4 weeks before they’ve pickled enough, so you will want to have the day that you made them on the label. I think they are best after a whole month, so…

Roasted Tomato Sauce {with Vegetables}

Roasted Tomato Sauce

When I’ve got tomatoes coming out of my ears and they are in buckets and bowls all over my kitchen, people will invariably ask when they see them, “what are you going to do with all those tomatoes?” Um, let’s see: Addictive Tomato Chutney, Dried Tomatoes, Salsa, pizza/seasoned sauce, Tomato & Feta Salad, Zucchini, Corn & Tomato Saute…well, the list could go on and on. The most important w…

Don’t Throw Out That Yogurt

Look what I found in the back of the refrigerator? With all the holiday food and cooking over the last month, the fridge has been packed and now that’s it’s getting back to normal, I’m able to see some things that got shoved out of view. Let’s see…December 22 is quite a while ago, right? Still, I let my husband take a whiff out of it this morning to see if he could use it on his granola (I’m so generous that…

Crumb-Topped Apple Pie {Bake Now or Freeze for Later}

freezer apple pie

This easy, Crumb-Topped Apple Pie is one of the best apple pies I have ever eaten. The fact that it can be made ahead, frozen unbaked for up to three months, and baked from frozen (no need to remember to take it out ahead of time to thaw!) is just a bonus. Although what a bonus! Some call a crumb-topped pie a French pie, others call it a Dutch pie, but I just call it my favorite. I like the buttery, yummy crumb topping so muc…
