Tight Wad Tips! FREE at WinCo!! LINK UP

The other day, I received a mailer from WinCo comparing their prices to Walmart, Harmons, Smiths and Macey's.  I kept it to compare against my notes, and to see how those prices were affected by my coupons.  I didn't realize until this morning that the back of the mailer was full of coupons for FREE breakfast foods!

FREE WinCo Items:

Malt-O-Meal Cereal: Saved $2.48
Bars S Bacon: Saved $1.98
Cascade Pride English Muffins: $.68
Minute Maid OJ: $2.48
Oakdell Eggs: $.87

=FREE and more FREE!  Wahoo!!

Total Savings: $8.49
If you're close to a WinCo, I hope you saved this mailer! It's worth the trip!!  --you can only use the coupons at the store listed on them.  And you can use them all in one trip!

Were you able to use all the coupons on the same trip? That's been my only hesitation in using them.
Thanks!

I sent Bret through with all the coupons and stuff and I'm pretty sure they didn't even charge him tax. I went through, using another set of coupons (from a neighbor), but I bought other stuff as well. The neighbor only wanted the English muffins so we enjoyed getting extra eggs and bacon and juice and cereal. I love it when Winco does that.
Sent my husband to use them this morning - they are only store location specific (we couldn't use the Midvale coupons in Orem) but he used all in one trip! Sweet!
Thanks for bringing that up! I'll add that to the post. :)

Last night I saw a woman using the winco coupons at Wal-Mart and the cashier took them without any problem so she got the items for free from Wal-Mart. That surprised me.

i just love those FREE deals!
Wow, that is amazing that the grocery store would give those deals! Why don't I have that store in my area? *pout*

I listed your linkup in my Wednesday Weekly Shopping feature. I'd love for you to come by and link up!

And thank you for your linkup list. I found a few that I didn't know about.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
