I found this on you tube: I just love the Muppets

Who knew Johnny Depp was so deep?

“There are four questions of value in life... What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.”

“The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.”
What do you think?

I really think they should make this for Grandmothers

save-a-dime: Kroger has Medium eggs for $1.00 a dozen

Okay it is time to stock up on eggs. They have not been a $1.00 a dozen in a very long time. At this price they will run out fast. If they do don't forget to ask for a rain check. Rain Checks are our friend.

Save-a-dime Kroger policy change on coupons

I am a little upset with Kroger this week. It seems they are limiting coupons to five like coupon in 24 hours. Now I know they are trying to be fair so the extreme couponers don't buy out the store. However they offer 10 for 10 deals all the time. That is when I try to stockup and catch the lowest price I can. So this morning I email the corprate office to tell them I feel they should accept to coupons on the 10 for 10 deals. I urge all of you to do the same. It messes up your game plan when you can only use 5. I understand that they are trying to keep some folks from buying 50 of one item. No kidding a couple of weeks ago Domino's sugar was 2.49  if you bought 10, there is also a 50 cent coupon that doubles to 1.00 so that was 4 pounds for 1.49 great price. In my local stores (There are 3 Kroger stores close to me.) I went to all 3 stores and they were sold out, I saw on woman in line she had 40 bags. So I got a rain check. This was before the stores change the policy to limit of 5 like coupons in on trip. This being said I get the idea of a limit per trip but since most of their sales are the 10 for 10 I feel they should change it from 5 to 10. If you feel the same, go to their corp site Shoot them an email. Maybe if enough of us do this they will raise the limit to 10 so we can catch a good deal. I did get my rain check from each store so I will get the sale price but I will have to go to 3 stores instead of one to do it. (What a bummer.)

save-a-dime: Kroger still has Carolina Turkeys for 59 cents a pound

I have always been a Butterball fan. However this year Butterball didn't offer any prices that would help me save a dime. So I tried Carolina brand that Kroger has for 59 cents a pound ( Dog food cost more that that. LOL) Yesterday I decide to roast one just to use for lunch meat, I was a little concerned this bird might not be the quality of a Butterball. Was I ever wrong. This was the most tender turkey I ever cooked the meat was falling off the bone. It is a great buy. Glad I stocked up I have 2 more in the freezer. If I had more room I would get some more. I did pressure can one from raw state . I mean really do you want to pay 5 to 6 a pound  at the deli or throw one into a roasting pan and pay 59 cents a pound. At this price I can share it with my Roxie

Best Deal so far this month Thanks to JCP

Did JC Penney send you the $10.00 off a $10.00 purchase coupon? This is what I bought with mine. The crock pot was on sale for $11.99(org price 19.99) , they were out of the color I wanted, the clerk who's name was George, said if I took the floor sample he would knock off 10 %.
So since I love to save-a-dime I took him up on it. 
After the discount, it came to $10.89 then they took off the $10.00 coupon. I paid 89 cents. I am making a cheese dip in it right now.
Peanut Butter going up 40 % got you down? CVS has Jiff this week for 2/$500 and you get $3.00 back in RR"s. That is  like getting it for 2/$2.00 If you have any RR's it will be an even sweeter deal.
If they are out, don't forget to ask for a rain check .

The manager at my CVS is great, their store was not shipped any Jiff, we asked for a rain check. They allowed us to get the Skippy for the same price. So I gave them a Dollar RR and Four Dollars and got back $3.00 in RR"S.  That's $1.00 for 2 18 oz jars of peanut butter. NO 40% increase for me this week, thanks to CVS.....

Easy Saltine Cracker Candy 

Recipe Name: 
Easy Saltine Cracker Candy
This is a quick and easy chocolate "toffee" candy made with saltine crackers and sprinkled with nuts
18 servings
4 ounces saltine crackers
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2-2 cups (9-12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut halves, optional
1. Liberally grease a 10 x 15-inch jelly roll pan. Lay saltine crackers in pan in a single layer. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over saltines.
3. Bake at 375 degrees for 5-7 minutes, until toffee is bubbly.
4. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Allow to set for 5 minutes or until the chocolate chips are melted, then spread across the crackers with a knife. Sprinkle peanuts on top if using.* Allow candy to cool, and then chill before breaking into pieces.
Additional Notes: 
*Optional: For easier breaking, at this point you can score the candy with a knife at the cracker "seams". After candy is chilled, it will break more uniformly.
Preparation Time: 
10 minutes

Just a reminder: Walgreens Cottenelle deal ends to day.

The Double roll 12 pack of Cottenelle Ultra (in the purple pack) Is $5.00 if you buy 2 packs, you will get $3.00 back in RR's. Good deal, it gets even better the Oct savings book has a dollar off coupon on the purchase of one pack. So get 2 books tear out the coupons, now they are $ 4.00 each. Check you coupon stack for the 50 cents off on coupon that was in the Sunday papers, use 2 now you are paying $7.00 for 2 packs. You also are getting your  $3.00 RR. That means you are getting, 24 double rolls for $4.00 that"s $2.00 a pack. It comes out about 17 cents a roll for double rolls, great deal. I did this early in the week, wanted more, they ran out. Sent the hubby there today, and it was back in stock. Now really can you ever have to much T.P. ?
Hope you get in on the deal.
