Wednesday is double coupon day at our local Rainbow. They will double up to 5 coupons and only coupons that are $1 or less can be doubled. In addition, you need to spend $25 in order for coupons to be doubled.
After perusing the Rainbow ad I came up with a plan:
Ritz Crackers OS for $2.50- MFG Q $1/1- Doubled= .50 a box
Wheat Thins OS for $2- MFG Q $1/1- Doubled= FREE
Band-Aids OS for $2- MFG Q $1/1- Doubled= FREE
3 Jello OS for 3/$1.98- MFG Q $1/3- Doubled=FREE + .04 Overage
Kraft Dressing OS for $1.67- MFG Q $1/1- Doubled= FREE + .33 Overage
I also purchased some of their Sale items:
Hamburger Buns= .49
Hot dog buns= .49
2 Roundy's sour cream tubs= $1.76
2 Roundy's Butter= $2.56
Total Food Purchase: $5.43
Now, I'm sure you are asking, "But what about the $25 additional purchase?". I bought a $25 gift card (I needed it for a gift anyway). If you didn't need a GC you could always buy a Rainbow GC for your next shopping trip, or if you have other shopping to do simply buy $25 worth of food.
From now on I will only shop Rainbow on Wednesday's!!! Yay for double coupon day. You may want to check with your local Rainbow, I'm not sure that all Rainbow's offer this AWESOME DEAL!
I also scored at Target this week by stacking Target coupons with MFG coupons to = FREE or significantly reduced.
100 Cal Packs $2.94- Target Q $1/1- MGF Q $1/1= .94
Wheat Thins $2.04- Target Q $1/1- MFG Q $1/1= .04
Ritz Crackers $2.54- Target Q $1/1- MFG Q $1/1= .54
1lb. Bulk Apples $1.49 per lb. Target Q $1/1lb= .49
2 Kraft Dressings $1.59 each- Target Q $1/2- MFG $1.50/1- MFG $1/1= FREE + .32 Overage
2 Kraft Cheeses $2.19 each- Target Q $1/2- MFG $1/2= $2.38 for 2
Total Food: $4.07
WHERE DID I GET MY COUPONS???
Some are from the Sunday paper, but most I printed on-line.
Kraft is offering $50 in coupons for a limited time- PRINT THESE as many times as you can.

There is a Jack's Pizza coupon for $1/2, print 2 copies combine that with the Cub Coupon $10/4 (found in coupon book at door) you can get each pizza for $2. Not a bad deal!
Cleaning... oh how I hate. Every time I think I'm ahead a little person comes along behind me and spills a box of Cheerios. Seriously...
I can't tell you how frustrating this is, if you are a mom you know exactly what I'm talking about. Gone are the days when you cleaned your house and it *just* stayed clean. I've tried everything and most days I feel like I just chase my tail. I've discovered that you have to let the little stuff go and focus on the areas and things that will stay clean. For example, don't Windex all the little finger prints on a daily basis because this is all you'd do. Let the finger prints ride and dust your fixtures instead.
I've come up with a checklist of everything that needs to be cleaned in a months time. Each chore is broken down so that it will only take 5-10 minutes to complete. I keep the checklist on my counter and when I have a minute I pick something to do. By the end of the month hopefully everything is checked off. The items that aren't finished up at the end of the month on a weekend.
