Are you ready for Halloween? Need a last minute costume? Go to Target.  Yes, Mam.  Blanket sleepers are all the rage this year, and Oh Happy Day you can wear them all winter long.  Oh yeah!  Heck you can even wear them over to your neighbors house at 2 in the afternoon when you need to barter for a few tea bags because you’re out.  Not that I would know anything about that of course.  Nope. Not me.

Enough about pajamas costumes, lets talk groceries. I think I did pretty well in the grocery department this past week with the help of coupons, bartering and gardening.  Here is what I brought home.

Albertsons $7.98
Milk and yogurt for the monkeys. Have you ever had Tillamook yogurt before? My favorite flavor is Marionberry.

Reclaimed Produce $0

Nothing beats FREE Produce!  Well, actually free chicken does. Ha!

Bartering $0

I was able to score 30 pounds of FREE CHICKEN and now I think we are set for the rest of the year meat wise.  Well, actually I still need a turkey for Thanksgiving.

Tacoma Boys Produce Stand $6.51

I stopped by my favorite produce stand and loaded up on apples and peppers.  The prices are so great at Tacoma Boys I just have to stop by every time I’m nearby.

Albertsons $2.97

I had a great time stocking up on basics at Albertsons on my Double Coupon Shopping Trip yesterday. I think I’ll head back over there today or tomorrow and see if I can pick up some more FREE Barilla pasta if it’s in stock.  Fingers crossed!

How did YOU do this past week?  Did you stock up on any freebies?  Get an awesome deal at a roadside stand?  Get a free ride on a llama?  I’d love to hear about it.

Happy Monday!

When I picked up my 4 free boxes of “chicken scraps” from Mr. Produce Guy this week I was pretty hopeful.  As I quickly placed the boxes in the back of the car, I was thinking, cool we’d have grapes and cantaloupe for lunches, and plenty of lettuce for soft tacos this week.  Sweet!

Then I went home and sorted the loot.

Whoop. T. Do.  This was all I was able to reclaim.  The grapes were soft, the rinds on the melon looked iffy, and I was only able to salvage 1 head of lettuce from the entire box.  Oh well, beggars can’t be choosers right?  Ha! I can’t hit the jackpot every week now can I?

Peace Out Girl Scouts, have a great day.  Now go forth and save something from the trash!

Because I didn’t do any shopping at the grocery stores to fill my refrigerator last week, instead I spent the week pulling weeds in the garden and bartering with my neighbors.  So not only did I save on gas, but I saved a few pennies as well.  After all, I need to conserve my resources if I’m going to get a turkey and cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving this year.

Last week The Girl and I were able to glean a good sized laundry basket of neglected apples.

I didn’t have to pay anything for the reclaimed produce either.

My bartering with my neighbor Francisco went much better.  You can watch the video and see how it all went down HERE

I LOVE bartering with Mrs. Hillbilly. She always has a ton of fancy cheeses and meat products in stock.  Plus, I was even able to score a can of Guinness for the HH’s favorite Guinness Beef Stew.  Yee-Haw!

I did have one deal that was a total stinker though. 2 of Girl Girls kids came down to barter 2 pounds of ground meat and a tin FULL of moon-cakes with me in exchange for some pumpkins.

But when I opened the tin of moon-cakes, I noticed 2 of them were missing. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT? Girly Girl stuck it to me AGAIN! What a punk!

So how did you do last week?  Did you do any bartering, or find some sweet deals at the grocery store?

It’s been over 6 months now since I got up the nerve to ask my local produce market for their scraps.  What a life changer.  I wish I could go back in time to when the Handsome Husband and I were first married, and didn’t have an extra dime in our pockets.

If I had known it was possible to come home with boxes and boxes of FREE produce every week, I would have done it a heck of a lot sooner that’s for sure.

Before we started picking up “chicken scraps” each week, I would rarely buy things like watermelon and grapes out of season at the grocery store.  Now we get it all for free.  What a luxury!

Here is what we were able to salvage:

The chickens were pretty happy with their scraps as well.  This is a picture of our 6 week old australorp chicken enjoying her first watermelon.  Life is good.

Have YOU been able to convince your local grocery store {big or small} to let you collect fruit and vegetable scraps?  If so, do you have any tips to pass along so we can help others to get their start in this HUGE money saver?

Let us know in the comment section below.

Peace Out Girl Scouts, have a great day.

My goal this week is not to spend a dime at the grocery store.  This of course means I’ll be doing a lot of bartering with my neighbors.

Last night I showed up on my neighbor Francisco’s doorstep and asked if he wanted to barter with me. Francisco is a vegan, so I wasn’t sure what I was going to go home with.

Goodbye sunshine, hello rain.

The burn ban was lifted over the weekend so now I can have a cracking fire burning in the fireplace when the Handsome Husband comes home from work {just like a true Pilgrim woman}.  I LOVE this time of year.  Mostly because I don’t look like a total nut when I run errands around town in my favorite long sleeved t-shirts and sweaters.

People stare at me when it’s 80 degrees,  but not when it’s like 50 degrees out.  Ahhh, the little things.

Anyway, I did quite a bit of grocery shopping last week, it wasn’t all free, but now my refrigerator is stocked and ready for another week.

*If you are a real Washingtonian, you are too cool to use an umbrella.  I just used it so you knew it was raining out. Ha!

Here is what I purchased last week.

Costco Shopping Trip $14.38

The kids were whining we didn’t have any lunch meat for the sandwiches so I broke down and stopped by Costco and picked some up. While I was there I grabbed some crappy Costco milk containers as well.

Local Produce Stand $5.33

Last week I made stuffed bell peppers in the crock pot, caramel apple dip, and Baba Ganoush and needed a few extra ingredients to make it all happen.

Costco Shopping Trip $ 0

The day after I purchased ham and milk my annual Costco rebate check came in the mail.  Instead of cashing in the check like I’ve done in years past, I decided to take a break from coupon shopping and spend all but $.74 of it at Costco on goodies.

Bartering with Mrs. Hillbilly $0

I batered a 25 pound bag of whole wheat bread flour I didn’t want with Mrs. Hillbilly.

Albertsons Shopping Trip $2.39

While I was in Atlanta, Georgia last week I met a rep from International Delight and she gave me a bunch of free product coupons.

Reclaimed Produce $0

Free chicken scraps are awesome!

Albertsons Double Shopping Trip $.24

Who says you need money to buy groceries?  All you need is enough to cover the tax and you’re good!

I spent a lot last week, but I was also able to pick up some really good stuff.  I think I’m going to have to take a break from shopping though this week if I want to stay on track.  We’ll see.

So how did you do this past week?

Did you do any couponing or splurge on anything good?

Shopping with Mavis – How I Spent My Rebate Check at Costco

Yesterday I received my annual Costco rebate check in the mail.  For the last 5 or 6 years my parents have renewed our Costco membership as a Christmas gift every year.  It’s a pretty sweet deal if you ask me.  This year we got back $81.81 on our purchases.

Technically I could have just walked in to Costco, cashed my check, and walked out.  But sometimes it’s nice to be able to shop like a “normal person” every once in awhile.

I brought a list of course, but got a distracted when I hit the prepared food section and had to put back the butter and cream cheese I had put in my cart earlier.

If you are looking for a free lunch, you stop by Costco on a Friday, Saturday or a Sunday. That’s when they put the good stuff out. Everything is served in bite sized portions of course, but still.

On the menu today was:

  • Chili Dogs
  • Cinnamon rolls
  • Spinach Ravioli
  • Hot cocoa
  • Coffee
  • Chicken Tortilla Soup
  • Corn Dogs
  • Mystery Beef
  • Salmon burgers
  • And for dessert… Aussie licorice.

So what did I buy with my rebate check?

  • Honey Ham {for Christmas}
  • Sliced Salami {for snacking}
  • Breakfast Weenies
  • Doritos {for Monkey Boy}
  • Grape Juice {for the Girl}
  • Half and Half {for the HH}
  • Milk, Whipping Cream, Sour Cream {for everyday use}

I even went home with $.74 cents in my pocket. The lady behind me totally tried to get me to pay for her groceries though, that’s why you see a couple of voids on the receipt.  I mean really, like I would every buy a Swiffer.

Yee-Haw… Paying full price is fun.

Do YOU shop at Costco, or do you just stop by for the free lunch every once in a while?
