Aldi's Ad Online!

I'm super excited that Aldi's website now has their local ad's online. Where as before I was just basing their prices from Coupon STL's blog. And most of the time, those prices didn't match our store in town. So, hooray! Aldi's ad prices start on Wednesday's. And for those of you who've never shopped at Aldi's, bring a quarter for their carts! For more details on how to shop at Aldi's check out Chambana Mom's blog.

Ahh, sweet relief....

Ahh, sweet relief with this McDonald's coupon, Buy One Get One Free! If you haven't tried McDonalds Frappe's, they are SOOOO GOOD!!! So if you're looking for some summer relief, print one out and put it in your car, just in case.

I loved Iced Coffee!

I love Dunkin' Donuts Iced Coffee (especially the carmel mocha one). So last night I decided that I would try to find a recipe on how to make it. A lot of the recipes online say to brew the coffee and then store it in the fridge for a couple of hours. Today, I check my home page (www.moneysavingmom.com) and there's a post on how to make your own Iced Coffee! How weird is that? Suzanne's blog, Pie Birds, Buttons, and Muddy Puddles, has a step by step guide to making DD's Iced Coffee. Check it out!

Garbage Find!

I was on my way to work early this morning, and look what I found!

It was garbage pick-up today, so there were lots of cans out. I always keep my eyes peeled whenever this day comes along. This stereo system was sitting on top of someone's garbage can! The thing that made me stop, was the fact that the remote control was taped to the top. This made me think that it could possibly work!

So, I couldn't wait to get home to see if it worked. I didn't have high hopes, but once I plugged it in, the screen came on! Once I hooked up the speakers, I found out that it's in pretty good shape!

What a great find through "dumpster diving!"

Frugal Tip #578

Frugal tip #578:

Always ask your friends who are moving if you can shop in their fridge/pantry before they move!

My dear friend, Beth, is moving far far away and I don't like to think about it, but alas, the time is coming...

She let me come over to her home and "shop" in her kitchen! Here's what I came home with:

I was especially excited about all the flour that she let me have! She gave me 3 full bags! One of them was all-purpose, one was whole wheat, and the other was bread flour. It's especially handy when I had flour on the shopping list already.

Also, since the moving people can't technically pack cleaning items, it's fun to see what people leave behind. We'll be well stocked on tampons and cold medicine for awhile now.

Thanks, Beth, for all the groceries and fun memories! You will be missed.
