Taste Buds Edwards Singles $1/1 Coupon

Last night I gave the Edwards Singles a try!
First I tried the Hot Fudge Brownie with creamy ice cream.

It comes with a brownie cup that you put in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then you push the ice cream cup on top.

Here the brownie is all cooked and the ice cream top popped.

Put the two together and this is what you get! Grab a spoon and ENJOY!

I thought it was a very QUICK dessert. It took me less than 2 min to make the whole thing. I often crave a brownie sundaes from Chilis or a Mud High Pie from Red Robin. This would be an A+ substitute for me.

I really like that there were no dishes involved. You cook it in the little cup, you dump the ice cream on it. There is no mixing, stirring or poking. I grabbed a spoon and ate it up.

The brownie was a little tough after I let it sit for a couple min, so I would recommend eating it right away. In fact it even had a little crunch to it.

The Creme Pie Slices with Reese's was to DIE for. I only wish I would have bought more. It literally melted in my mouth. I am craving another one while I am writing this. I paid $1.35 and two pieces of pie came in the box, individually packaged.

For the price I paid this would make an inexpensive dessert for one. I am not sure I would have bought one for everyone in my family, but for a mom and dad treat it was GREAT! I could see myself not ordering dessert after going out to dinner and eating an Edwards Singles dessert.

Are there any other flavors you have tried?

Here is $1.00/1 package of Edwards Singles Dessert, any variety!

Put it on the Grill

Thursday, September 3, 2009 | | 1 comments
Many families wave goodbye to the summer by having one last Labor Day BBQ.
Here are some great things that you can cook up on the grill.
Grilled Corn on the CobIf the ears have many layers of husk on them, peel off the first few only, leaving a few layers for protection.
Soak the whole cobs in a pot of cold water for 15 minutes. Be sure the ears are completely covered with water. This will provide extra moisture for cooking and will steam the corn kernels inside the husks.
While the corn is soaking, preheat the grill to a medium temperature (350 degrees F).
After soaking, remove the corn from the water and shake off any excess water.
Begin by pulling the husks of the corn back (but do not completely remove them). Remove and discard only the silk.
Brush the kernels with olive oil. NOTE: I’ve tried using butter instead of olive oil, but I think butter is best applied after the corn comes off the grill just before you eat it. Before you re-wrap the corn in the husks, add a little garlic, chopped onion, nutmeg, salt, and black pepper. For an international twist, try using herbs such as basil, cilantro, or oregano.
Then reposition the husks back over the kernels and tie each ear with a piece of loose husk or twine.
Place the prepared ears of corn on a medium heat grill, rotating the corn as needed to keep it from getting charred too much on one side. After a couple of turns, place the corn husk on an indirect heat (moved to the side of the grill) or on the top shelf of your grill, and close the cover.
Allow the corn to slowly continue cooking for another 15 minutes. You will know it is done when you press a kernel and it shoots out it’s sweet liquid. Don’t overcook the corn or it will become mushy. You know when you’ve gone too far if the corn cob flexes easily in your hands.
Remove the corn from the grill. Be careful and wear oven mitts as the corn will be very hot!
Grasping one end with a oven mitt or dish towel, peel the husks and silk from the top down (like a banana). They should all come off in one piece. Ashes will get on the corn, but this is ok. If the corn is too hot to handle, do this part in the sink under warm running water.
Once you've removed most of the silk, rinse the corn under warm running water to remove any excess ash and silk.
Serve with butter and enjoy!

Coupon Trading Ideas

Are you name brand picky and when your brand goes on sale you wish you could have MORE coupons?
Do you hate seeing coupons go unused?

Do you find coupons and tear pads while you are shopping and wish you knew someone else who could use them?
Then here is a great idea for you! I personally am not one who likes to get together one night a week and coupon swap, but I do like getting and giving different coupons. What I recommend is a coupon train!

A group of 5 people would work great. My suggestion is to have people with different household needs and different locations. Here is how an awesome train would look:

Sally in St. George (It is just her and her husband at home and she enjoys cooking)

Jill in Provo (Newly Wed student and her husband is a toothpaste and toilet paper snob. Her and her husband both eat lunch out on campus during the week)

Ashley in Logan (Young mother with 2 boys in diapers and is expecting another and has no need for feminine products)

Helen in Ogden (Has 4 young children all in school that LOVE lunch ables and is always in need of a quick weeknight dinner)

Iris in Salt Lake (A grandma who only has her grandchildren over occasionally, but cooks a lot from scratch)

This to me would be an IDEAL train. Everyone has different needs and is in different places in their lives.

Sally and Jill would more than likely give their diaper coupons to Ashley and I bet Iris keeps a few of the diaper coupons for when her grand kids come to visit, but would also be happy to give some to Ashley. Ashley in turn gives her feminine product coupons.

Jill cannot have pets in her apartment, so she is more than happy to give hers pet coupons up who would most likely been taken by Helen whose children have a pet cat and dog. She also is not using her lunch able and fruit snack coupons, who are happily accepted by Helen.

Iris doesn't much care for boxed dinners so is more than happy to give those up to someone like Jill, Ashley or Helen who uses meals in boxes frequently.

The location of the girls is perfect as well. They all shop in different stores, therefore are more than likely to find different tear pads and coupons while shopping. Every time they see one they grab 5 of each coupon, one for themselves and one to share with each member in the coupon train.

Someone would want to start the train by putting together a big manila envelope. Sally could mail it out to Jill and Jill would mail it to Ashley until everyone had a chance to see the envelope. When you got the envelope your job would be to put your unused coupons in the folder and any coupons you found around town. When you get the envelope it is also your responsibility to clean out the expired coupons. Then you would send it on it's merry way again.

This is a great idea if you are too busy to get together with your friends and neighbors to trade coupons. It is also a great idea if you want to meet new coupons out there. So start asking around and finding some friends to start your own coupon train!
Let us know how it goes!

Online Coupons Reset

It is the first of the month, so you know what that means! The online coupons, Group A-Group C have reset. Some of my favorites were $1 off Gold and Plump chicken, $1/1 Nature Valley Nut Clusters, and $1/2lbs of any cheese. Here are some tips about online or Internet printable coupons:


  • Manufactures set limits on the amounts of coupons printed. When the limit is reached they pull their coupons off. That means occasionally you will go the print a coupon and it will be gone unless you printed it off at the beginning.

  • This is even more important toward the end of a month. Coupons group A-C are reset at the first of the month, so on the FIRST, when the coupons reset, they started out at zero.

  • Sometimes manufactures will reset their coupons after the limit is reached, but don't count on it. Just consider yourself lucky if they do.

  • I know some people are having problems with IPS. I wish I could help out in that area, but I am not tech savvy enough. I have heard that switching browsers can help. Example: On Internet Explorer and they won't print try Fire Fox or vice virsa. Another great resource is pinching your pennies. They have an entire forum to troubleshooting your IPS.

Some questions to commonly asked IP questions answered:

  • Where are online coupons located? All over! You can see over the the left hand side of this there are online coupons, group A-Singles . You can also find coupons on manufactures websites, you can receive them via-email and sometimes websites will give them to you after you join their mailing lists or take a survey for them. When the Grocery Smarts lists are up you will see links that take you to online coupons. The best part about those lists are that if there are coupons online, they are on the lists. You will never have to search for coupons for items on the list yourself! Grocery Smarts lists do all the work for you.
  • "Are IP'S worth it? It seems like a lot of paper and ink to be wasting." My answer is it depends. I think after you have a couple months worth of newspaper coupons its hit and miss. I only print ones of that make things close to FREE or if it is something I really like or know I will need. You'll never catch me printing of cereal coupons or toothpaste coupons. That is because I have DOZENS of them from my newspaper.

  • Now, if you are staring out and only have a few coupons from the paper on the list then I definitely recommend using IPS to maximize your savings. My sister in law started out and only had a weeks worth of coupons, but wanted to start saving right away, so she maximized her coupons by using IPS. She told me her husband was frustrated by all the paper in ink she was using, but after she shopped she had saved over $50. That paper and ink WAY over paid for itself. IP'S are a great way of subsidizing newspaper coupons, but not a great substitute! Newspaper coupons will benefit you way more in the the long end.

  • "How long do IP'S last". IPS have expiration dates on them the same way other coupons do. Most times they expire WAY faster than the ones in the paper. That's why I only print the ones off from the list that week. Otherwise they tend to expire before I have a chance to use them.

  • "Can we print them off in black and white?" It depends on your store. Some stores will take black and white, some will not. Be sure to ask if you are planning on trying black and white. There reason behind that is they are trying to protect themselves from illegal photocopied coupons.

  • Do all stores take IP's and the answer is no. Not all stores do take IPS. I do know that Albertsons and Smiths DO! My suggestion with other stores is call ahead and ask if you are planning on using them on your shopping trip.

Also don't forget the two IP's per HOUSEHOLD rule! Have fun printing!

Where are my Red Plum inserts?

Sunday, August 30, 2009 | | 4 comments

If you are new to She Shops Smart, or missed the first post we wrote, here, about Red Plum being distributed by mail here is another reminder. If you are receiving any paper in the state of Utah, accept for the Daily Heraldand I believe the Spectrum (Is that right any of you ladies in St. George?) your RP inserts will now be mailed to you rather than in your Sunday newspaper. Good news is you get them for FREE in the mail, however you can no longer receive multiple copies, so start asking your neighbors for their unused copies. For those of you receiving the Daily Herald you will continue to receive your inserts in the paper. The Daily Herald was contracted with RP to keep the inserts in the paper, so they are unable to break the contract, but I am guessing that when their contract is up that the coupons will be pulled from the Daily Herald as well.
It is bitter sweet. Yes, we will miss the RP inserts in the paper, but we will still be receiving them . To find out whether you will be receiving the inserts in your paper or in the mail go HERE. Also, did you know that more than 75% of our coupon usage comes from the Smart Source insert? If you have been couponing for a while that is not new news to you. Half of my RP insert coupons go unused.

Utah Sunday Paper

Today in my newspaper I found
One Smart Source Insert
One Proctor and Gamble Insert
and One Red Plum Insert.
(The RP insert is only found in certain areas on Sundays. If you don't receive it in your paper you receive yours in the mail)
