Mexican Haystacks Recipe ~ Unique Dinner Using 63¢ Waffles from Fry’s

kroger_waffles

We have a recipe to share with you.  Becca calls it Mexican Haystacks.  It’s almost too unique, not to try!
.
.Here’s what she says about it . . ..
.
“This is a recipe that my grandma used to make all the time when I lived with her in college.  I’m not sure where it came from but I grew up having it at her house and haven’t seen it anyplace else!  It’s my go to meal when I don’t know what else to make and I’m shopping my pantry!”
.
We can get frozen waffles at Fry’s for only 63¢ this week, so it’s a great time to try these.   Hopefully, you have most of the other ingredients on hand and only need one or two items.
.

Kroger Frozen Waffles (10 count)   $1.00 (Fry’s 7/22 – 7/28)
$0.75/2 Fry’s digital (can’t use w/ paper coupon)
Final price:  63¢ each when you buy 2

If you don’t have some of the other ingredients, pick them up for a good price, too.

Milk (gallon) $1.99 (limit 2 at Fry’s, Albertsons, Safeway or Bashas’ 7/22 – 7/28)

Food Club Soup (10.5-10.75 oz) 69¢ (Bashas’ 7/22- 7/28, if cream soups included)

Safeway Kitchens Canned Fruit (15-15.25 oz) $1.00 (Safeway on Friday 7/24 ONLY, if pineapple included)

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (any size package) $1.99 / lb  (Bashas’ 7/22 – 7/28)


 Give them a try and tell us what you and your family thinks!

Mexican Haystacks
Ingredients:
1 small can chunk pineapple
1 cup small cubed chicken – fresh or canned
1 10.5oz can cream of chicken soup – cream of mushroom works also if you like mushrooms
1/3 cup milk
Frozen waffles – any variety
chow mein noodles – optional
slivered almonds – optional
salt & pepper – as needed
Directions
Combine cream of chicken soup, cubed chicken, & milk in large deep skillet on med-high heat until bubbling.  Turn down to medium and add pineapple until warm, liquids should be a thick, gravy-like consistency.  While cooking liquids, heat up frozen waffles in toaster oven.
Place cooked waffle on a plate and spoon chicken/pineapple mixture on top.  Add a sprinkle of chow mein noodles and/or slivered almonds on top for crunch.  Add salt & pepper to taste.
Serve and enjoy!
Makes approx 4-5 waffles.  Can double recipe for larger crowds.
(Thank you for submitting the recipe, Becca Holt!)

Get Facebook Page Updates to Show Up in Feed (New Way!)

bargain_believer_logo

I just found a new (at least to me!) setting for pages you follow on Facebook.  One of the most common questions we get is how to see all Bargain Believer posts in your Facebook feed.  It’s frustrating when you want to see something and Facebook just doesn’t show it to you.

We know that commenting, sharing, and “liking” posts helps.  But, it looks like we may have a new option.  Hope this really works!!

Some deals go quickly, so it’s a great way to follow us, if you’re on Facebook a lot.  Plus, we post some added information or have a Facebook-only giveaway from time to time.

Assuming you want to see everything we post  . . .

Supposedly, Bargain Believer posts will show up at the top of your feed.  Give it a try and let us know what happens.

Help! We Need Your Catalina Notifications! ~ (& Juli’s Luck …)

If you get any Catalina notifications, please send them our way because . . .

There is a serious conspiracy against me getting Catalina notifications!  I joke that the only way I get them is to reach in trash cans or bend down in dark, wet parking lots.  No joke — almost.  I may get a notification every couple months.  That’s it.

Well, I did my usual . . . reached in a trash can on the way out the door at Fry’s today.  (Yes, I’ll stoop that low — just for you!)  :)

Here’s what I got . . .  I can’t read dates, products, etc.  There are lines going through it.  Figures.

juli_cat

Here’s what Allison had already sent me last night . . . Why do I bother trying?

allison_catAnd, I got this “bonus” . . .

minute_maid_cat_002

I’m not sure if it’s an exclusive offer or one we can all get.  It looks like it’s adding up all the Minute Maid drink purchases and spiting out a coupon, at some point.  It’s not the typical Catalina offer.  They are only 88¢ / $1.38 starting Wed. at Fry’s, so . . .  if I had all the details, it might reveal a better bargain.  But, I don’t.  Those types are usually only for select people, but ??  I’ll buy one tomorrow and see if I get the printout — sure!  If you get any details, let us know!

If you see an offer on the master Catalina list and it doesn’t thank someone … it means Gina, Susan, or Allison got it.  Without them or you … that list would be blank!

Catalinas are a great way to maximize your savings.  If you don’t know what they are, read here.

If you want to see the most current list, go here.

I hope to add some more.  Send us pics of your notifications!!  THANKS!

juli @ bargain believer .com  or gina @ bargain believer .com (take out spaces)

Or, you can post them over on the Bargain Believer Facebook page.  Thanks so much!

Safeway Ending Double ($1) Coupons in AZ ~ It’s Official

safeway_coupon_policy

Well, it’s official … Safeway is ending their generous coupon policy of raising all coupons to $1,  everywhere in Arizona & Gallup, NMCoupons will be taken at face value, beginning June 3, 2015 Yesterday, I wrote about it here, but it wasn’t confirmed.

I was able to get an official answer from the company.  I’ll copy it below.

First, I urge you to look at it fairly, without intense anger.  It won’t help, so save your energy for finding deals.  We’ll still find them.  Don’t worry!

I will say that I’m disappointed.  I’ve lived in Arizona all my life and have used coupons my entire adult life — even in my late teen years!  I have loved having one of the most generous coupon policies in the US, for a long, long time.  As time went on, I knew it probably wouldn’t last forever.  I don’t like that this will affect our wallets, but the reality is that Safeway is a business.  They need to make money to stay in business.  If they feel like it affects their bottom line too much, it’s their call.  On the other hand, it’s our decision whether we shop there or not.  They have competition and they know it.  They’re not dumb enough to think this decision won’t impact their business.  I’m sure it came with much deliberation, thought, and future strategy plans.

This will definitely affect the way I shop.  Most likely, I’ll be doing more ad matching at Walmart (even some at Target), with little incentive to make a special trip to Safeway.  The exception will be sales on meat.  Meats are hard to ad match at Walmart.

We’ll have to adjust our budgets some, along with our thinking on when to stock up.  The “buy it now” price on some things will be going up.  It doesn’t mean we still won’t get free things (elsewhere) and get good deals.  It will probably mean that paying 50¢ for toothpaste or Angel Soft is now a rock bottom price, not free.  You may want to explore what CVS & Walgreens have to offer and learn how their programs work, if you don’t already.  Target is another place to stack up some ways to save and end up with a super deal.  You can still get toiletries and other items cheap!  And, don’t forget that Bashas’ is still doubling coupons.

** All links given above are to current shopping lists, if you want to check them out.

Honestly, I feel like my frustration is more with the TLC show “Extreme Couponing,”  but I realize it doesn’t help to blame them.  I really can’t even claim it’s all their fault.  It’s not.  Some would even say that I’m as much to blame as them.  I can understand that, to some degree.  Some of you saw that show and were inspired, even hunted down this website after viewing it.  Others were appalled.  I guess I have a love/hate feeling towards it.  I love that the show opened people’s eyes to seeing that they could save huge amounts of money.  That’s really why I started this website, so we have that in common.  I hate that it seemed to turn couponing into a competitive sport, where rules were often not followed and losers ended up (sometimes) being you and me … Juli, coupon user who likes to save for her family, but not rent a U-haul to get things home.  (Okay, slight exaggeration –  in some cases!)  The reality is … enough people got “extreme” and the stores couldn’t sustain their profit margin.  I get that.  It doesn’t help to point fingers at who got too much (how can you really judge “too much?” — okay, sometimes it seems easy!?!) or who took advantage of what.  For now, it is what it is.

I already wish for the “good old days!”  But, as much as I wish for those days, I also wish that everyone would stay determined to save money for their family.  It can be done — at Safeway and beyond, with or without coupons or coupons with added value.  I’ll share some more general, tangible ways, in the coming weeks.

If you want to give Safeway one last shop before it ends, make sure you check out their list here.  Let us know if you find something we should add.  We all want our last minute deals!  Too bad I’m in California.  Well, for the last shop — not for the weather!  :)

Here’s their official statement:  (Received on 5/29/15)

Good afternoon Juli:
 
I received your email from my colleague regarding changes to Safeway’s Coupon Policy.  The information you’ve received is correct.
 
Recently Safeway began investing major resources to strengthen its weekly ad flyer by lowering prices on popular items featured each week.  Additionally, on Weds. June 3, 2015, Safeway locations in Arizona and Gallup, NM will begin Senior’s Day the first Wednesday of each month.  This promotion will offer shoppers, who are 55 and older, 10% off their grocery purchases. 
 
Consequently Safeway locations, in Arizona and Gallup, NM, have initiated a change to its coupon policy.  Beginning June 3, 2015 coupons will be accepted at face value and no longer doubled.  Safeway’s new coupon policy aligns with many other grocery retailers.
 
Currently Safeway locations in Arizona and Gallup, NM have signs displayed at all registers to provide advance notice to customers regarding the  coupon policy change.
 
Safeway’s Just For U app is available to shoppers and is another convenient way to cash-in on extra savings while shopping at Safeway.  Signing up for Just For U is easy.  Visit:   www.safeway.com/Just-For-U
 
Again, thank you for your email.
Sincerely,
Nancy

Is Couponing Worth It?

coupons_&_scissors

I was asked (after hearing Safeway will probably be accepting coupons at face value in AZ soon, more here) …

Is couponing worth it?

If you want the short answer … yes, for me.

If you want the long answer, grab your coffee (maybe it’s a smoothie this time of year?) and snuggle up to your computer or mobile, as I share my thoughts.

When, I say “couponing,” I mean using paper coupons (printable, from Sunday paper, & misc. coupons that may show up) or digital coupons you can load directly to your shopping cards.

I only use coupons for products I will use or have a specific purpose for (donating, giving to friends, etc).  I’m not a true “extreme couponer.”  I’ve only seen a couple of the TLC shows, but I’m nothing like what I’ve seen.  I like to call myself an “intentional couponer.”  I use them wisely and save a bunch of money!  I don’t need a trailer to get my groceries home and one bottle of mustard will usually last us until it expires, around my house.

For me, couponing will still be worth it, even if coupons are taken at face value.  (Keep in mind that most of the country can only redeem coupons at face value and many do it.)  There is still money to be saved.

I’m a firm believer that pennies add up to quarters, add up to dollars, add up to $20, etc.  I’ll even still bend down to pick up a penny.  The bonus is a little bit of exercise, if nothing else.  :)

On the other hand, I also value my time.  If I’m finding that saving $3 is taking me an hour, I won’t do it.  My time is worth more than $3/hour.  On the other hand, if it takes me an hour to get ready to go to the grocery store (or an extra hour to run somewhere else & look at ads, etc.) and I end up saving $30 (random number for example) … totally worth my time.  I should say … usually!  There are weeks when I don’t have an hour to spare to save $30, as much as I want to.  I value my sanity more than thirty bucks.

As much as I love the savings and the financial freedom it helps bring to my family, it’s not for everyone.  I have different time, priorities, and needs than you do.  Don’t blindly use coupons, without counting the cost.  There are costs.  I would never deny that!

  • Time — What “wages” are acceptable to you?  Remember, it’s tax-free “income.”
  • Space — How will you store surplus?  Do you have room or need to stick with basics?
  • Sanity — Does the extra clutter (coupons or treasures you get) drive you nuts?
  • Need — Do you need to do it to make ends meet?
  • Want — Do you enjoy using the savings for something else that makes the effort worthwhile?
  • Respect — Does your spouse value the fact that you do it or does it drive him/her nuts?
  • Cost — How much are you spending on newspapers, ink, paper, buying coupons, gas, whatever?

Take a serious inventory of the above list.  Ponder it and calculate it.  If you feel it’s more of a burden, stop — unless you feel it’s a necessity!  (Well, I don’t see how you can resist clicking and loading a few digital coupons.)  :)  Yes, I know I run a coupon website.  Well, I don’t fully see it that way.  I run a money saving website, that often involves coupons, but there’s much more!

Whatever you end up doing with your coupon usage, I hope you stick around Bargain Believer.  We’ll always share deals that have coupons, but we go beyond that.  We want you to have fun with your family, without spending a bunch.  We’ll point you to those deals and other bargains we just can’t seem to keep to ourselves.  As long as there are businesses competing, there will always be bargains out there and we’ll help you find them!  We may even tempt the non-coupon users out there to click and load a digital coupon or even print a coupon every once in awhile.  The coupon/non-coupon line can be crossed at any time.  :)

I was going to share some other ways to save, but I’m afraid you’re falling asleep now.  And, I’m out of time.  Stay tuned … more on saving (beyond coupons) soon!

What do you think?
