Look What I got for $1 at Hallmark!


This was one of those shopping trips that leaves me a little flushed.  One dollar!
Doesn't this ignite the couponer in you?  lol  Maybe it's just me.  If you still have your $10 off $10 purchase coupon I posted about awhile ago, I would highly suggest using it!  It's no longer available...  However you can find $5 of $5 purchase coupons in these magazines:  (going to the dentist anytime soon?? lol)


If you can find 2 of them you can get this all for $1! Although you can only use one per transaction/or visit depending on the cashier.
Wrapping paper - buy one for $4.99 get one for .99 These are BIG rolls!
Cookie Shapers - $1.99
Tape - .99 ea
Candy Cane Ornament - .99 (my daughter picked this out, she may have thought she could eat it. :)

---I was only taxed on my subtotal of .94!  :):)

Don't you love that feeling that you get - when you walk out of the store with your loot that you only paid pennies for? :)

That's awesome! I tried to use a $5 off $5 today and they were so rude about it I ended up walking out! And it was one from a magazine, not even a printed one!
I'm so sorry! I hate it when they are rude...ruins my day. What location did you go to? So I know never to go there. :)

Are you in Utah? I went to the the Foothill location. After I used mine she told about there being more in the magazines!

Rachel - Yes I do..It's an addictive feeling :)

Great trip! I have a $5 off $5. I need to get it spent and soon!
I'm not even sure there are Hallmark stores in my area anymore... I'll have to take a look around and see, but I know I haven't seen one recently. Good job!

Thanks for visiting Wednesday Weekly Shopping at Frugal Follies! I truly appreciate it!

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!
