$avings $monday- Recipe, Savings, Freebies

Hello Friends!

  So, I missed Sunday... We still love $avings, so here's $avings $monday!  :)
Got a few great buys last week.  Grocery shopping week.  Kroger has a promotion going on - buy 10 (selected) products, get $5 off your grocery bill... So that decreases the per item price by 50 cents per item - a great deal when matched up with (doubled) coupons!!!  Mom and I saved over $100 grocery shopping this week!  The boys were very happy campers because I bought some great ice cream and saved over 75% (and it would have been more, but I didn't buy 10 of them.)

  Another great buy this week:  For Local/Quad Cities Friends - Fareway has Ragu pasta sauce on sale for 10/$10.  I got the heads up that our Fareway was out, so I pricematched at Walmart.  I had 75c/1 coupons and paid $2.50 for 10. (Woot Woot!) 

  Some great buys can be had this week:


Stock up on your tissue - Puffs brand tissue - 99cents (matchup with 8/28 P&G coupon)

Halloween Candy on sale (We live in the Country, we get no trick or treaters, but I like the little candy bars - we have in our home what we affectionately call the "good boy jar"... the little candy bars are the perfect size for a little treat.)

Walgreens has their $6.99 toys on sale (buy one get one free) - always a good time to pick up a couple items to keep on hand for unexpected gifts (And even better if you have an extra high dollar Register reward to use!)

They also have Disney or Nickelodeon kids socks for $1 - great stocking stuffers!

Zicam and Delsym products $10 each... PLUS get $5 register rewards for spending $20 on these items.  (I am a fan of Delsym cough syrup... with a few of us with allergies/ allergic asthma in the house, it is fantastic to have found a cough syrup that not only works (for HOURS!!!) but it doesn't taste bad, either!)

Easy Recipe of the Week-
Adapted from ALL YOU (Oct 11) Magazine

1 Package Italian Sausage (I used Johnsonville Garlic Sausage)
2 - 28 oz cans diced tomatoes (can use Fresh tomatoes)
6 cups soaked and prepared canellini beans (4 cans, if using canned)
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 TBS cooking oil

Brown Sausage.  
In stock pot, heat oil and cook onion and garlic for several minutes on medium heat.  Add tomatoes and beans into stock pot.  Add a small amount of water (you may have to keep adding water if it gets too thick). 
Slice Sausage and add to stock pot to cook with tomatoes and beans.  Will need to simmer for about an hour and a half to cook down tomatoes.
*Notes - I needed a quick meal and saw this and tried it.  It was WAYYYY better than I thought it would be.  Next time, I will use chicken stock instead of water for a little more flavor, but this was so good.  Everyone enjoyed it!

Have a great Day, Friends.  Be Kind to one another.  And don't forget to say "I love you." - You can't say it enough.  I love you!
