spare time on a saturday, mixes with craft store coupons.

Saturday, April 24, 2010 | | 2 comments

It has become a bit of a joke between Tori and I that everything we do is based around a deal or a coupon. Yes, there are times we pay full price but we do love a good deal whenever and where ever possible. This has crossed over to cover many different areas of my life besides grocery shopping. 

I am not totally sure what caused this need to craft ,well it actually may have just been the coupons Tori posted yesterday for Roberts and Tai Pan, but whatever caused it, my weekend plans are now going to involve some sort of creating probably using a glue gun (and due to the coupons some shopping as well :) ). 

By using coupons it has, trips to craft and fabric stores much less pricey, as well as date nights more affordable, and many many many other things that have been fun for my family. Using coupons this weekend my family will probably go out for a meal, and I will work on the craft. 
Has your coupon use trickled into other parts of life or had an impact on other areas besides your grocery budget? If so tell us about it! Where else are you saving, or what have you done with the money your coupon shopping has saved you? 

Recipes Using Sale Items- Avocados

7 Layer Bean Dip

There was not really anything that caught my eye for serious stocking up on when I shop this week. This means that I will just be picking up the "this and that" we will need to create meals next week from the other things we have on hand. 

The one thing I did notice however was avocados are on SALE at smiths. What does this mean? Guacamole for cheap- and using it in a 7 layer bean dip! If you happen to be one of those people (like my husband) who thinks avocado is gross, this post is not for you, as I could not more strongly disagree! =) So, avocados on sale means making some guacamole for the freezer. Avocados do not freeze well whole, or cut into pieces. However if you mash them and add some lemon juice (so the acidity can keep the  mash does from turning a 
unappetizing grey color) they will freeze great. 

Directions to freeze for later use:
Using a fork mash the avocados well. Transfer them into a freezer bag and seal tightly, leaving just a little air space for frozen fruit to expand. It is best to use within 3-4 months.
When your ready for your mashed avocado, allow it to defrost overnight in the fridge. Then use it as usualy in dips or as a sandwich spread. 

For a really quick guacamole I will mix a few tablespoons of salsa in. With summer on the way I know we will be having at least one BBQ or party of some sort to attend and this makes for an easy appetizer -at a great price.

Wondering where we've been? Yesterday both Emily and I took a day to go play at the Gateway Museum with our kiddos and friends! If you haven't been this month it's a great time to go with that $5 off coupon and then as I was wandering the food court I saw that Hot Dog on a Stick does $1 Corn Dogs on Tuesdays! Cheap play date!
My little coupon shopper in training!
