Amazon: Rosetta Stone for $69 Today Only

Rosetta Stone

Yes, this is not the usual deal that I post but today only, Amazon is offering Level 1 of Rosetta Stone (any language!) for only $69. Normally $179, this is a savings of 61%. I’ve heard amazing things about learning a second language with this program so thought I’d pass it along in case you were interested in giving Rosetta Stone a try.

End of February Shopping for MOPS

My end of the month shopping found me watching my budget carefully as I picked up the last items for our MOPS Freezer Cooking Session. This week, our MOPS groups did some cooking ahead for the freezer. We were each in charge of a recipe / meal and brought all the ingredients for the other ladies to make our meal. However, we all bought and prepped our own meat for all the casseroles before hand. When all was said and done, we ended up with 6 main dishes (9 x 13 size), a peanut butter pie, a hash brown breakfast casserole and a pan of scalloped potatoes. My recipe? Poppy seed chicken. That is the reason you’ll see so many cans of cream of chicken soup in the picture below! They were on a slight sale but not like Thanksgiving sale prices. Sigh. Oh well. I bought them anyway! The things I’ll do for my MOPS friends. :-)

I started this week with a quick run to our bulk store for poppy seeds (for poppy seed chicken), buttermilk powder (to attempt making my own ranch mix / dressing) and whole wheat flour (to make graham crackers). The graham crackers were a fail. More on that later! At the bulk store, I spent $6.10.

Then, Nathan and I stopped by Sam’s Club on our way to visit his Great-Grandma. Their boneless skinless chicken breasts are normally $1.88/lb which is a great price – plus I had received a $3 off coupon via email. That took my 6 pounds of chicken down to $1.38/lb! Yay! While I was there, I noticed strawberries were $4.98 for 2 pounds BUT I had also received a $2 off coupon via email. That took the price down to $1.49/lb – which was cheaper than frozen at $2/lb. I bought a box for my husband’s breakfast smoothies. At Sam’s, I spent $11.88. Aren’t you impressed that I walked out with only 2 items? It was Nathan’s bedtime when we got home so I didn’t get a picture.

After I all that, I still needed some more items for poppy seed chicken. I headed to Kroger where they had their sour cream on sale for $1. I love their natural sour cream with no artificial ingredients! Half gallons of milk were also on sale for $1. I bought 2 containers of skim milk for us to drink. I also bought 3 containers of 2% so I could make more vanilla yogurt in my slow cooker. Well, I made one half gallon this week and froze the other two to make more yogurt when we need it.

Also at Kroger, I picked up several free items. I picked up my free Starburst gum and free chocolate egg, thanks to recent Friday Freebies. I had also won a free container of Planters peanuts and a free container of Country Time lemonade in the latest Kroger sweepstakes. At Kroger, I spent $12 – and saved $20.04 or 62%.

Kroger - 2/24/15 - $12 - 62% savings

Finally, I finished out my shopping trip at Meijer where I bought Campbells Cream of Chicken soup on sale for $1 as part of the “Buy 10 for $10, Get the 11th free.” I also bought margarine and one more box of Ritz crackers for the poppy seed chicken. Finally I bought 6 lbs of apples, since they were on sale for $1.50/3 lbs. Someone left a catalina in the cart I used for two free big rolls of Meijer paper towels if I spent $10. I did – and used the coupon. Yay for free paper towels! At Meijer, I spent $23.17.

Meijer - 2/24/15 - $23.17

This brings my shopping total for the week to $53.15. That brings my total for February to $191.76, which is below my $200 budget! How did you do budget wise this month?

Schoola $15 Credit

Have you heard of Schoola? It’s a new online shopping program that sells gently used clothes…and also gives money back to schools. I’ve recently heard some good things about Schoola and decided to check it out tonight. Why? Well, for a limited time they are offering a FREE $15 credit when you sign up as well as free shipping!

It’s easy to do. Sign up for Schoola here. (Note: This is my referral link. Once you sign up, feel free to share your referral link with others too!) Then, go and shop! When you go to checkout, you will see the $15 credit applied automatically. The free shipping was also automatically applied to my cart but you can use the code HURRY if you don’t see it added.

Schoola has many prices available – and lots of items under $5! I started by sorting boys clothes in the smaller sizes. Then, I filtered it by lowest to highest price. I found a pair of pants for him as well as a cute nautical romper. I also noticed there were some women’s items available in the high school category so added two $2.90 tops for myself to the cart. Grand total after credits? $0.88 for 4 items of clothing shipped to my door – 2 for Nathan and 2 for me. This is how I like to shop! :-) What are you waiting for? Go sign up and give Schoola a try!
