New Target coupons!

I got an awesome booklet of Target store coupons in the mail today! So excited! I wanted to do a big list of match-ups with other manufacturer's coupons for you, but I'm going on a date with my husband tonight!

So, watch for your booklet because all the store coupons may be used WITH manufacturer's coupons for MORE savings! Use a store coupon and a manufacturer's coupon together on the same item, it's almost like doubling your coupons at Family Fresh Foods!

Also, check out and print their new coupons! They have some awesome Dial coupons (I'm still thinking Kmart doubles!), and a lot of cheese coupons available today. Have fun- I'll be back on Monday morning with more HOT deals!

Recipe of the week: Barbeque sauce

Barbeque sauce is something that is usually on sale in the summertime. What about the other months of the year? We still crave the barbeque taste even when it's snowing outside, right?

Try mixing up this quick and easy barbeque sauce. It's made from some very basic ingredients that I hope you already have in your pantry. There are probably some recipes for barbeque sauce out there that are even more homemade, as this one skips a few steps and uses ketchup. If you have a fabulous recipe for Barbeque Sauce, will you please leave it in the comments section of this post?

Basic Barbeque Sauce

1 c. ketchup
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
or 1 T. dried minced onion
1/4 c. vinegar
1 T. Worshestershire sauce
Several dashes bottled hot pepper sauce

Combine all the above ingredients in a saucepan. Add 1/2 c. water and 1/4 t. salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 10-15 minutes or to desired consistency. Brush or pour onto beef, pork, or poultry during the last 20 minutes of grilling or roasting. Makes 1 3/4 cups.


Hot-Style Barbeque Sauce

Add 1 t. chili powder and 1/2 t. ground red pepper with the ketchup in the above recipe.

Tangy Mustard Barbeque Sauce

Prepare as above, but add 2 T. prepared mustard and 1/4 t. garlic powder with the ketchup.

I used my barbeque sauce with the super cheap chicken deals I've been getting lately (and I hope you have been to!) to make this chicken dinner.

Because of the amazing 25 cent chicken leg sale at Fresh Market in December, and the chicken sale this week at Macey's, this chicken dish cost around $1.00 to make! I already had the basic ingredients for the sauce on hand, as well, so that helps immensely! That's an amazing cheap chicken dinner price for a family of 5!

Print 2 $1/1 coupons here for Johnson's baby lotion. This coupon is awesome in that it does not exclude travel size. You should be able to get some FREE baby lotion with these coupons!

5 $1/1 Fast Fixin Coupons

Head over here to the Fast Fixin' site and print 5 $1 off coupons. Plus, when you sign up for the e-mail club, you will get a FREE product after you buy 10.

These should make some awesome deals, especially if the coupons may be doubled! Will you let us know if they may be doubled when you receive them? I'm not sure if you can print them, if they arrive on e-mail or if they will sent via snail mail!

More GREAT news from Macey's!

I went to Macey's today to pick up the 4 FREE lbs. of chicken, 9 cent tomato sauce and 44 cent sour cream, when the friendly checker told me that they are honoring the 'Budget Buster' coupon booklet ALL month long! WOW!

She said that ALL Macey's are participating in this all month long promotion, using all the coupons from the booklet! You may want to call ahead on this deal, or ask when you get to Macey's. I checked around the store and noticed that they had hung signs on items that were in the coupon 3/17-3/31 time frame!

Cache Valley Cheese 8 oz. 2/$3 with Budget Buster coupon:

Land O' Frost 16 oz. Premium Lunchmeat $5.49
Use $3/1 Budget Buster coupon
Plus use the $2/1 Land O' Frost coupon
(If you missed this one, it looks like you can still print it!)
Final price: 49 cents!

Here's the retraction notice on the Lunchmakers. The coupon should have said $1.50 off 8.5 oz. Lunchmakers, not 2.6 oz.! They are $2.19, so with the coupon you can buy 4 at 69 cents each.

The cashier also handed me another coupon booklet on my way out. One coupon per customer may be used for these deals, but I'm thinking my husband and children are all customers, too! I'm sending them into Macey's with coupons!

High value Dove coupons!

Head over here to print 3 high value Dove body wash and soap coupons!

Coupons available are:
$1.75 off Men Body and Face bar, 4 pk.
$1.50 off Dove Men Body and Face Wash
$1.25 off Dove beauty bar 4-pk.

Also, print 2 $2 off coupons for Dove Visibly Smooth deoderant here.

I'm thinking Kmart doubles week now, so I'll be on the lookout for more coupons like these that can be printed, saved for that fabulous week in April (4th-10th) and then doubled to score some FREE items!

Notice something about your coupons?

I’m sure you did if you were printing coupons last week, hoping to get them doubled. A lot of printable coupons (especially the General Mills coupons) cannot be doubled! Well, this doubling thing has really made me take a closer look at my coupons.

Take these for instance: you have a .50/2 coupon and a .40/2 coupon. The .50/2 is more valuable, right? Not at a store that doubles coupons, like our good friends at Family Fresh Foods! The .50/2 coupon cannot be doubled, so we look to our 40 cents off coupon instead. The 40 cents off turns into 80 cents off! So the .40/2 coupon is more valuable in this instance.

Most of the coupons that CAN be doubled are coupons from the coupon inserts found in your Sunday newspaper. If you do not have a newspaper subscription yet, I highly recommend placing one today! Check out my awesome newspaper deal with the Standard Examiner, you'll love getting lots of coupons that can be doubled every week- delivered right to your doorstep!

This is what one reader of Savvy Shopping 101 said:

"I have been trying to be a couponer for years now. I watched the grocery guru, I tried pinching your pennies, I tried grocery smarts. I have even gone to multiple classes. For some reason it just didn't click. I am an educated person and I "think" I am rather smart, but couponing was a foreign language to me. I would clip coupons, buy papers etc etc etc, spend hours getting ready to go to the store and then leave saving little and buying a bunch of stuff I didn't need. Then I found your blog. I .... saved 50% off my bill at least. IT FINALLY MAKES SENSE. I love saving money I even found myself giving the cashier a high five. I was elated all day long and have told at least 20 people about my fabulous shopping trip. Thank you for making couponing something I can understand. You are AWESOME Heather, thanks for all you do to help ME save money." Amy

The $4 basket

I had a great time meeting some of you at Family Fresh Foods on Saturday! I took this basket of food to Family Fresh Foods and showed new couponers the possibilities when you use coupons consistently.

All of these items, 19 altogether, were purchased at Family Fresh Foods with coupons. 15 items were completely FREE! The Welch's grape juice and the Nature Valley Nut Clusters were $1 each. Altogether, this basket of food cost me $4!

On a side note, you may be wondering where the Febreze came from. This was purchased right before Christmas, on Dec. 22. The Family Fresh Foods ad came in the mail the day before on a Monday. They advertised a 'double coupon' day- no limit! That meant that $2 off coupons became $4 off! It was a Christmas present from Dave and Michelle at Family Fresh Foods. So, the Febreze was $4, and I had a $2 off coupon-FREE! That was another day that it paid off to have my coupons cut, organized and ready to go!

The doubles- no limit (!) day looked like this for me. 33 items for $12.37!

And now, I have an exciting announcement for Savvy Sister Shops. Someone is coming to shop with me at Family Fresh Foods this week....... can you guess who?

That's right- Melea from Freebies 2 Deals! In case you're new to the coupon world, her blog is HUGE here in Utah. She's also a regular guest on Good Things Utah and Studio 5. I'm honored that she wants to come and shop with me. I'm also really excited to meet her and show her around Family Fresh Foods. I know she's going to love doubling her coupons. We are both going to make videos for our blogs, so stay tuned!

I started this post with the $4 basket, because I will be giving Melea a similar basket to give away at her big coupon class. I hope the lucky winner enjoys this gift from Savvy Sister Shops!
