Culinary Crafts: The Big 21

You may need your box of tissues for this week's The Big 21 over at Culinary Crafts (you can also find it on iSurf)!  I got a little misty-eyed reading it!  And I'm definitely "pinning" that dip recipe to my Pinterest board for future reference!  Oh, and Happy Birthday, JoJo!

I love to leave comments on blogs that I love to follow, so head over and checkout the comment I left today!  It's got a savings tip for one of those great recipes Leigh shared with us!  I'm sort of on the fence about that oatmeal one...I may have to try that one near the holidays!

Totino's + Box Tops = Chance to win 250,000 for your school

Did you enter for bonus Box Tops

I did and I signed up for the daily email reminder!

Yahoo! First Person: Strategies of a Dollar Store Shopper

Did you catch this story on Yahoo!?  First Person: Strategies of a Dollar Store Shopper.  Definitely worth reading, and a great reminder that you can save $5 on your $25 purchase at the Dollar General on Saturday!

Printable: Brawny Paper Towels

Head over to the Brawny Facebook page for a great "$1.00 off any one package of Brawny Paper Towels" coupon.  The single rolls are 10 for $10 at Kroger this week; get one free with this coupon.  I guess you can't get better than free....but if you buy the 8-roll package this Saturday during the save $5 on your $25 purchase at Dollar General, you'll get each roll for around 58-cents.  Or, you can wait for a sale at Kmart and take advantage of a double coupon day!  My coupons printed with a March 31st expiration date!  Plenty of time to wait for a good sale!

Printables: SpagettiO's, Hillshire Farms, Sherwin-Williams, Marie Callender's

My picks for the day from 77477.

Save 50-cents on any Five Campbell's SpaghettiO's pasta

This coupon will double at the grocery stores and on Kmart Doubles days.  I let the last round of this coupon expire because I didn't come across a good sale.  I'm hoping there's a good sale between now and March 4th!

Save 55-cents on any One Hillshire Farm Lower Sodium Lunchmeat

This coupon will double during Kmart Doubles, but I am not sure they carry the Lower Sodium variety. 

Save 25% off Paints and Stains, Save 15% off Painting Supplies at Sherwin-Williams

Sherwin-Williams is a popular brand in the DIY community.  It must be pretty good stuff!

Save 50-cents on One Marie Callender's Microwavable Fruit Pit (10 oz)

This coupon should double at the grocery stores!

Printables: Fantastik & Pledge/Armstrong Floor Cleaner

If you've visited this morning, you may have noticed the Fantastik and Pledge/Armstrong coupons.  To make life more complicated, there is also a combo coupon available.....
I skipped that coupon to the left for "Buy Any SC Johnson".
Instead, I printed the "Save $2.00 SC Johnson" and the "Save $1.00 Fantastik" coupons.  In the end, the dollar value is exactly the same.  But, that third coupon could "attach" to both products preventing the register from accepting the $1 Fantastik coupon.  Plus, Fantastik is available at Kmart (according to the website), and I love Kmart Doubles!
