After my stellar Hy-Vee Shopping Trips during the week, I did a little weekend shopping at Target, Hen House and Aldi.


Pictured: (4) Dr. Pepper (12-packs) and (2) Gevalia Coffee. Total: $13.08

Hen House & Aldi

Aldi Pictured: Half and Half, Strawberries, Cream Cheese, Cumin, (2) Saltines, Splenda Knock-Off, (3) Flour Tortillas, Pita Chips, and Pretzels. Total: $15.95

Hen House Pictured: (4) Lay’s Potato Chips, (6) Nabisco Snack Crackers, Roberts Milk, Dannon Oikos Yogurt, and Dannon Light & Fit Yogurt. Total: $9.08

Hen House CSA

Pictured: Honey Bear, Double Onions, Double Red Peppers, Wheat Bread, Good Natured Family Farms Hamburger, and Seedless Watermelon. (Which was the BEST watermelon we’ve had this season.) Retail Value: $25.00.

Trip Total: $63.11


I had several FREE coupons from either companies that work with the blog or BlogHer – Roberts Milk, Dannon Oikos, and Dannon Light & Fit.

The Gevalia Coffee was $3.00 each after a Buy One, Get One Free Printable Coupon (NLA) and $1/1 Gevalia Manufacturer Coupon that I received with one of the various samples.

If you happened to get ANY of the Lay’s Chips coupons that were available earlier last week – there is a sweet deal at Hen House. Lay’s Chips are Buy One at $4.29, Get One FREE. Use any of the $3/1 or $3/2 coupons and you’ll pay only $.65 each after coupon.

Here is the scenario for the Wheat Thin or Triscuit Snack Crackers at Hen House. (Deal is still good today.)

And on a downer note – ALDI changed their supplier for Saltines. They aren’t nearly as good as they used to be, so unfortunately they will no longer be on my “Best Of ALDI” list.

      Vanessa – I’ve done two things. We made stuffed peppers and we coated them in olive oil and roasted them, took the skins off and froze them for paninis, hummus and pizza in the winter.
