Local ALDI Food Specials

My local ALDI got more ground beef than it requested from their supplier. As a result, they were offering $3 off a 5 pound package of 77/23 ground beef. Before the discount the beef cost $8.56. After the discount, I got 5 pounds of ground beef for $1.11 a pound. Similar deal for bananas which are now 25 cents a bag or a nickel a pound. The lesson? Check your local ALDI often for great deals.

Almost Free Starbucks Ice Cream

Welcome to summer. Temperatures are rising to 90 degrees today. What better way to cool off than with ice cream. Walmart has the new pint-sized Starbucks coffee flavored and hot chocolate flavored ice creams on sale for 2/$5. What makes this deal even sweeter is a coupon that came with last weekend's paper for $2.00 off any Starbucks ice cream. Use two of the $2.00 coupons and each pint costs just 50 cents! I got the caramel macchiato version which is caramel, vanilla ice cream and coffee ice cream.

My sisters are busy as bee's making lotion these days. This creamy and rich formula is great for gardener's or anyone that wants a long-lasting lotion that doesn't contain methyl paraben. It's gluten-free and is a beeswax-based product. Right now, you can select from 3 different scents: citrus, lavender, or unscented. Click HERE to read more.

New Kroger Coupon Site

There's a new site to add coupons to your Kroger card. It's called, "Bringing Hope to the Table." The tag line states that they are donating $4 million to local food banks. I have heard that it takes about 24 hours before the coupons actually load onto your Kroger card. Give it a try.

Wooly Bulle' Non-sudsing Laundry Powder

It's true. You don't have to have bubbles to get clothes clean. My sister's and I are making non-sudsing laundry powder.

It started with not being able to find a low-suds soap for front-load washing machines. The laundry powder is good for top-load or front-load washers.

You can choose a sample pack (8 oz. vol.) or container (32 oz. vol.). And it doesn't contain dyes or heavily scented perfumes. Hand-made and eco-friendly.

Check out the blog at Wooly Bulle' Laundry Powder.
