First things first...

So we're starting to adjust to life here in Dallas! I'm slowly getting ready for the transition from being a Utah blogger to a Texas blogger. My first priority is to get my house in order buy a Dallas Cowboys jersey! Who cares that I really don't understand the game of football, Albertson's stores down here give an additional 10% off on game days when you wear your Dallas Cowboys jersey!

And, it must be a JERSEY- t-shirts don't count. We already tried that when we rolled into Amarillo and pulled out my son's Cowboys t-shirt... we thought we did well for just arriving from Utah! But, it was a no-go- it must be a jersey.

Then, I'll be on to learning about double and triple coupons at Kroger and Albertson's and other fun items like CVS. Wow, I'm so excited!

I hope you all have a fabulous holiday weekend with your families, everyone! I'll be back on Tuesday with the deals!

What to do with chicken... guest post!

It seems as though I'm always running into GREAT chicken deals at Target! I asked Audrey at Tight Wad in Utah to write up a guest post on what to do with these great chicken deals. If you don't know Audrey yet- she is definitely a blogger you will want to know. She's an expert at matching up sales items with delicious recipes!

What to do with Chicken Thighs

I'm Audrey with Tight Wad in Utah. I always end up getting chicken thighs for really cheap. Here are a couple of my favorite thigh recipes so when you stock up you'll know what to do with them all. :) To see more "what to do with...." recipes go here.

Crumb Coated Chicken Thighs

1/4 c dry bread crumbs
1 t salt
1 t ground cumin
1 t paprika
1 t chili powder
1 t curry powder
1/4 t pepper
8 chicken thighs, skin removed
throw all the dry ingredients into a plastic bag and shake
coat thighs a couple at a time
Bake at 400 on greased baking sheet for 15-20 minutes. Turning half way through.

This recipe is really amazing. I consider this one guest worthy. :)

Crockpot Chicken Thighs

This one has crazy ingredients but it is soooo good.

8 chicken thighs, skin removed
16 ounce salsa
1/2 c peanut butter
2 t ginger
2 T soy sauce
2 t lime juice
throw it all in a crockpot on low for 6-8 hours
garnish with cilantro, scallions, and peanuts (I just did peanuts)
serve over rice

Thanks, Audrey! These all look fantastic!

$19.99 Newspaper Deal ends tomorrow!

*Remember that you may order up to 8 copies of the Sunday paper with this deal! EIGHT- it's a coupon users dream!

FYI- If you were even thinking about adding more papers to your growing collection- you need to know that the incredible $19.99/year paper deal is ending tomorrow!

Due to the holiday weekend, this deal will be ending sooner than expected. If you want to get a new subscription, or even add onto your existing subscriptions, you will need to call Debbie at 801-344-2923 by tomorrow (Friday) afternoon!

Can I just insert here that using coupons has CHANGED my life forever. I slowed way down on shopping since learning we were going to move. Even after over 9 months of unemployment, we moved into our new home and filled the pantry completely FULL! The bathroom shelves and drawers are FULL and more storage shelves are FULL of groceries and non-foods items. I won't need to go shopping for awhile, either- unless I really want to! I hope you're learning to love coupons as much as I do. I love the way we are able to provide for our family. Just wanted to add my two cents here!

Enjoy this fantastic deal!
