Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Today is officially the first day of Summer 2013, and school has ended for both my husband and son so let the summer snacking begin!  Small children aren’t the only ones who like to snack during the day, my guys are always in and out of the frig or looking in the pantry trying to find something to eat.  During a recent grocery shopping trip to Giant/Super G, I found a few new snacks that I think will hold them over between meals.

Fruit is always a great snack and I like to have a variety on hand, grapes, cherries, bananas, apples or grapefruit.  I recently began purchasing Mini Sweet Peppers from Sunset Grown which can be eaten raw, in a salad or stuffed with a soft cheese like Laughing Cow. Laughing Cow Lite Creamy Swiss is only 35 calories per wedge and are a great snack with the mini peppers or with a piece of fruit.fruit

Sunset Gourmet Tomatoes are an easy grab-and-go snack and they also add variety to a salad.

Crackers another great snack and these Ritz Crackerfuls are available with Peanut Butter or Cheddar Cheese filled.  There are 6 individually wrapped packs in each box, these are made with real peanut butter and 6g of whole grains which to me makes it a healthy snack.

Jello has made several changes over the years and not just to their standard flavors of Chocolate and Vanilla puddings. They have added new flavors with toppings like this Turtle Sundae, a more grown-up option.  Unfortunately the packaging has also changed from 6 containers per package to 4, and these new flavors contain only 2.

Dole brand, a leader in fruit snacks have recently introduced Fruit Squish’ems!  As you can see these Apple Strawberry fruit pouches aren’t just for tiny toddler’s hands, big teenager hands grab them too!  Made from fresh apples in the USA they are only 60 calories each and also make a great grab and go snack.

A new product by Hormel are these REV Snack Wraps which come in 8 varieties including Pepperoni, Ham & Cheese, Meat Lovers Pizza, Spicy Italian Style, Peppered Turkey, Italian Style Ham and Hot Pepper Ham.  I tried one and felt it needed a little mayo or mustard and could have used a few seconds in the microwave to soften the flatbread.

When waiting for dinner is “just too long” these microwavable Hormel Compleats Cafe Creations fill the bill.  With a variety to choose from including Chicken Chipotle Pasta and Creamy Chicken Carbonara, no one should have to “starve to death” waiting for dinner!

Last but not least are these new Lunchables Uploaded. I hadn’t purchased a Lunchables since my sons were were in Elementary School, but I had a $1.00 off coupon so I decided to give it a try. Included in this package are the ingredients to make a 6-inch sub; a few slices of Oscar Mayer Lean Turkey, and Kraft cheddar cheese, a packet of Kraft fat free mayo, a 6-inch sub bun, a 10 oz bottle of Spring Water, a Kool-Aid Tropical Punch Single pack, a Pringles Snack Stacks Potato Crisps and 2 Hershey’s Kisses, not bad for $2.50!

It all started with an email containing a picture of these Fioni floral heels and then another email with a $10 off coupon, it was then on like popcorn!  I’m so sorry that I fell off the “won’t shop this month” wagon…but not so sorry that I won’t share this Payless shoe haul with you!

These Fioni Kit Print heels were my intended but weren’t available in my size, the sales associate called other stores and found a pair at the Concord Mall.  I was then given a $4.00 coupon for the inconvenience of having to go to another location to purchase.   The manager and both sales associates were very pleasant and helpful, making my shopping experience a positive one, so much so that I purchased 4 pairs!

I drove to the Concord Mall after work to get the Fioni Kit Print and also got the Fioni Kipsie in Pink, spending an additional $26.08, used AAA card and $2.00 off code for completing the online survey printed on the receipt!  This shoe haul netted 6 pairs of shoes, averaging $10.60  each pair, I now have more than enough for the season and will begin purging existing to donate or sell at next month’s flea market.

Next stop is to the salon for a much needed pedicure!

Have a great weekend – Smooches!

I very rarely if ever pay full retail price for any article of clothing or accessory and I rarely if ever shop at the stores in the mall. However, yesterday was one of those rare occasions because I stopped at Best Buy which just happens to be next door to the Concord Mall. I love the various clothing lines at Boscov’s but you really have to take your time because of how they have them set up throughout the floor. It was late and I was heading out the door but a 75% off clearance sign grabbed my attention. I only spent a few minutes going through a few racks and purchased 3 items, totaling $32.74.

Brown Premise Pencil skirt ($58.00) on sale $14.50

Chaus knit top with faux leather shoulders ($49.00) on sale $12.25

No matter how hard I try, I can never seem to find anything at H&M, but at New York & Company it’s a different story. Not that I needed more jewelry, but when the sign reads 80% off, it’s too hard to resist! I purchased two statement necklaces one in red and another in blue for $4.59 each, original price was $22.94.

Dollar Tree is now accepting manufacturer’s coupons which makes a lot of items FREE! I had a $1.00 off coupon for the Pepperidge Farms Jingos and they are awesome. I also have coupons for Campbell soup but around the holidays it’s cheaper at the grocery stores.

Last week’s shopping trip to Super G,  I saved $11.80 using coupons; store loyalty card and .05 for each reusable bag.  Super G doubles coupons up to $1.00 and  gives gas rewards at Shell Stations which is an additional  incentive!

The total for these items was $25.23

Sitting at one of the many stop lights on 202 South, I was looking through coupons and realized I had a $5 off $25 coupon for Old Navy that was about to expire. I love the Old Navy mannequins and commercials but I love their bargains more. Shopping at Old Navy is like being at a casino hitting mini jackpots because there are always marked down items mixed in among the regular priced ones.

I hit with two maxi skirts and a pair of espadrilles for $21.97.

Purple Drawstring Maxi – $7.32

Gauze Maxi Skirt – $7.32
I got the blue one

Espadrilles – $7.33

Other Sales – 30% off all wedge shoes
