When out and about, I often see things that I can’t use, but I think someone else can. This is where they’ll be posted.

Kroger High Value Daily Coupons are Back!

I love shopping at my Kroger in Rome, GA. They are SO coupon friendly. That really matters to me, because I use a LOT of coupons. I’m not the extreme couponer with 3 carts, but it is not unusual for my bill to be paid for with at least 100.00 coming off from coupons.

They have this special deal they run every now and then that I really like. You simply sign in every day and you get the high value coupon for the day.

Well, it’s going again, and today it is a $1.50 Oscar Mayer coupon.

So if you shop at Kroger, check every day until 4/28 to see what they offer. The last time they offered this promotion, I was able to get dirt cheap Tide, free sandwich meat, and several other things for substantial savings.

Start at this link: Kroger Cart Buster Coupon Event. The coupons will be digital and will load to your Kroger card.

2 Adult Movie Tickets for $12

Oh! I am so wanting to go see Puss N Boots, but even more than that, I can’t wait to go see Breaking Dawn. Yes, I am one of those not so cool fans of sparkly vampires!

I’m glad to be able to offer a link so you can get 2 adult tickets for $12.00!

This is an offer you can’t refuse! $12 For 2 Adult Movie Tickets From ($24 Value)

I think that is a great deal on movie tickets – especially if you live in an area where admissions are high and there are few discount theaters – like MINE. Gosh, the last time I went to a movie with my son, it was nearly $20.00, and that was just the tickets! Yes, we can save some by going to matinees, but he really likes to go at night. Still, matinees are about $7.50 each here now. How much is a ticket where you are?

Now’s the Time to Stock up on Bell Peppers

This last week I’ve been busy filling my freezer with bell peppers. It seems a lot of the dishes I like best have bell peppers in them – Italian, Curries, Mexican – like fajitas, and Cajun. Yes, I like spicy food!

I get so tired of paying over $1.00 each for bell peppers, and who can afford a red bell pepper for $2.59? That’s how high I saw them last winter. The local farmer’s markets recently had a lot of bell peppers 2/$1, and the beautiful colored peppers 3/$2. I grabbed a bunch. Kroger in the Southeast has them for .59 cents each now as well, if you don’t have access to a farmer’s market or need to be able to pay with food stamps.

They are actually very easy to store and freeze, and I find it not only more economical, but also a good time saver. It’s so nice to just be able to reach in and get what I need, pre-cut, and ready! That’s why I cut my peppers in a variety of shapes. Some I dice, some I cut in long strips, and others I cut in bigger square chunks.

Select large, unblemished peppers at the lowest price you can find. Late September, early October is a great time to buy them.

First wash the peppers:

Then pat them dry with a paper towel and cut them in shapes that you cook with.
Lay them in a single layer in a shallow pan or on a cooking sheet. I use wax paper to line mine.

Then simply place in the freezer for an hour or two. Take them out, and place them in a resealable container. I use the Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids.

That’s really all there is to it. Now when you’re ready to cook, just open your container and take what you need. Freezing them this way keeps them all separate so they don’t clump up.

They taste great in cooked food and are a real timesaver. Over the winter, we’ll save a lot by having a good supply of bell peppers in the freezer, so we don’t have to pay twice or more when we need one. The only exception is when fresh peppers are needed, but for us, that’s pretty rare.

Onions can be frozen the same way. There are other ways of storing onions, so for me the main benefit of freezing them is to save time in food prep, or for saving onions that are leftover, for instance, when a recipe calls for half an onion. IF I don’t think I’ll use the other half soon, I go might go ahead and cut the whole thing, then freeze half of it.

AMC Silver Movie Ticket for $5

$5.00 for an AMC Silver Movie Ticket, worth $12.00 is a pretty good deal, especially if you are in a place where tickets are more expensive. Around here, we generally go to matinees, but my son really likes to go to see movies at night. He says “There’s just something about walking out of the theater when it’s dark.”

When I can find a good movie deal online, it helps us afford to go at night for the same price or less than a matinee. This is for AMC theaters only.

Free Ream of Paper (After Rebate) at Staples

Staples has a deal until 1 October 2011 where you can get a free ream of paper after rebate.
You need the coupon at the link below:

(It’s the coupon at the top, so just print page 1 if it is the only one you need.)
Take that coupon to Staples and get the paper, have the cashier scan the paper and your coupon, and then pay. When you get your receipt, it will have information on it that you will then come home and fill out online. (At least that is what happens where I live and for most folks, but a few stores maybe different if their system is not online yet.)

I’ve completed several rebate offers from Staples in the last year. They have always paid me, but it usually took about 6 weeks. Still, free is free and I always need paper to print coupons with! Just DO NOT forget to file your rebate. I have learned to do it as soon as I get home.
