Big exciting news. TX Krogers are doubling up to $1 coupons on Saturday only. Yes, that makes them $2. I'll be hitting the store early. Only one coupon will double though. I'm unsure about whether $1/2 coupons will double. I hear they will not. You can always call the store to find out. Happy shopping!!!

Yay, more school supplies. This are great for donating too. Lots of stores will probably have barrels out to collect school supplies soon. This is a great way to stock up for that even if you don't need them.

Kroger This isn't my favorite list because I think it is a little overwhelming, but I can't find another list for TX up yet. I'll add another one when I find one posted.
HEB My favorite blogger is no longer doing this one, but here is a new one to try.
Krogers - here is another list.

Yay! Something I actually care about this week. I haven't been CVSing in a long time. (That's not totally true. I've been there for D.P. and chocolate runs.) But they have some school supplies which I will be stocking up on since my baby starts Kindergarten this year. Plus Head and Shoulders is a good deal, so I'll pick some of that up. I'm glad to be getting back in the game, but I have to admit - I've enjoyed taking a few weeks off from the drugstores.
I hope you guys snag some deals.

So I decided to throw the kids a little party for playgroup. The great thing about kids is that they don't really eat fancy things. I just made sandwiches -the bread, lunchmeat, and cheese were all on sale last week at Kroger. I put out salsa and blue chips from Target that I bought the week before when they have the chips on sale with a free salsa if you bought 2 bags. I made brownies and decorated them with red, white, and blue.
I picked up decorations from the party store, which I saved for use next year. I also recently bought several solid colored table clothes from LinenTablecloth.com to decorate for holidays. I bought red, blue, yellow, pink, and purple. I will use the over and over again for birthday parties and Christmas parties, so I feel like I will get my money's worth out of them.
For a craft, I picked up some little foam hats at Michael's which were on sale for 66c each and some foam star stickers. The mom's could write the kids names on each hat, and the kids decorated them. I was hoping some might wear it while playing out in the sun on the big blowup waterslide pool. (Of course, none of them did. Ha!) We love our pool, and that certainly makes it much easier to keep the costs down for a kids party.
Maybe next year, I will be up for a bigger party, and I already have decorations for it right. But I really enjoyed having this little party. Simple and fun!

Later I went to Target for a quick trip. I spent $4.20 for all of these items. The strawberries are on sale for $1.99 and there are several $1 off coupons out there. I used ones from 2 mailers that I received. I got the hot dogs for 49c by stacking 2 - $1/1 coupons. I am saving these for the boys birthday parties. I have a freezer full now.

Later I ran by Target and picked up a few Kashi products. This are always priced so much better there than at other stores. The same waffles are $4.19 at HEB instead of $1.99 at Target. They are even more expensive at Kroger. I had $1.50/1 coupons for the waffles making them 49c ea. I had a $1.50/1 coupon for the cereal bars which made them $1.04. I had nothing out of pocket because I had a $5 giftcard from a previous weeks deals.
All in all I'm pretty happy with this weeks total. Hopefully, I can stay down around that level next week too. I am already planning my menu based on what I have in the pantry, so I think I will be able to stay pretty close. We will see what kind of deals show up next week. :)

The deals don't look that great this week. I think I'll head to HEB for a few staples (flour, cornmeal, milk, etc.) I have great coupons for free stuff there too. I'll pick up some chicken breasts and asparagus.

Plus the thing I'm probably most excited about is the rotting mass out my back door. That's right we are composting in a trash can made composter. I didn't think it was really working, but then I went to turn it with a shovel, and low and behold - there is black gold in that stuff. I can't believe it actually worked and so quickly. I can't wait to see if I really does improve our garden production. Of course, first I have to figure out how to sift out the compost from the rotting kitchen waste. Ooh gross!
Here is our composter. We just roll it every once in a while.
The new thing for the kids is to find stink bugs and tell Mommy and Daddy to squish them. They are all over our garden. I haven't seen much damage yet, but we are trying to kill as many as we see. Who knew gardening was so gross.
We are so excited about our garden this year. It has really done well. We love checking over it each day. Those folks over at the Galveston County Ag Extension really know what they are doing. Our gardening experience has been so improved this year from last year by following their advice. I can't wait to see what the fall will be like. We get to try out a whole new set of veggies. Lots of fun when it actually works. Ha!
