How To Check Prices On-line For Harris Teeter

If you have ever taken my coupon class you have heard me mention what a great resource it is being able to price check all the items at Harris Teeter online- before you set foot in the store.

Sometimes when you look at the Harris Teeter deals  you might find some items missing you want to pick up.  Let’s say they have spaghetti sauce, noodles and crescent rolls on sale.  You get excited until you realize you don’t have any ground beef and the meat eaters in your house are going to revolt.

Since you need to stick to your grocery budget you want to know how much the ground beef is going to be before you go to the store.  Who knows?  Maybe it’s on sale.

And that is where Harris Teeter on-line shopping comes in.  Just a few clicks and you can know the prices of everything in your store before you go.

This also can be a huge tool in helping plan for Super Double Coupons (they have these usually every six weeks or so).

So take a few minutes on HarrisTeeter.com and see if you can get the hang of it.

And be sure to check out the current Harris Teeter deals!

How to Make a Pillowcase Dress



How to Make a Pillowcase Dress

If you have been thinking about trying a sewing project this one couldn’t get much simpler or be cuter!  Just follow these directions on How To Make a Pillowcase Dress!

Warm weather is just around the  corner and this sweet pillowcase dress would look darling on any little girl in your life (or a baby doll in your life).  Once it is too short for a dress it makes an adorable long top over leggings, blue jeans, or slacks.

No pattern is required, and it is a frugal- it only needs a small piece of inexpensive fabric and a piece of ribbon.

I made it so easy that you don’t even have to cut armholes!

Pick up a pretty piece of fabric at your local craft store (1/2 to 1 yard) and get started!

 Supplies:

Fabric ½ yard to 1 yard of fabric

1 yard of 1” ribbon

thread

sewing machine (or you can do by hand)

iron

ironing board

a safety pin

scissors or rotary cutting tool

Directions:

Begin by cutting your fabric in half, matching edges all the way around.

Here are some basic measurements for  cutting your fabric:

    Size Width Length Finished
6-12 mo. 16” 19” 16”
18-24 mo. 18” 22” 19”
2t 22” 24” 21”
3t 22” 25” 22”
4t 22” 26” 23”
5 22” 28” 25”
6 22” 30” 27”

I don’t like to mess with pins when sewing so the simplest way to prepare your seams for sewing  is to fold the fabric on the sides inward 1/2” and press flat with an iron. Fold the bottom up at 1” and iron flat. To prepare the top of your dress for running the ribbon through- fold a 2” seam over and iron.  Repeat this with both pieces of your fabric.

Using the zig-zag or straight stitch on your sewing machine (or you can sew by hand) sew up the side seams on each piece of fabric just inside the edge of fabric where you folded it over.  Then sew across the dress’s bottom and across the top.  Repeat with your second square of fabric.

Now place your fabric pieces together inside out- right side of fabric to right side. Sew from the bottom up 1/4” in from edge stopping at 5” from the top for 6-12 months and 18-24 months.  Stop at 6” for all larger sizes.

Turn your dress right side out.  Place a safety pin on the end of your ribbon and feed it through one end of your top seam, run the ribbon out the opposite end and through the other side, adjust ribbon so it is evenly distributed on both sides.  Remove safety pin and tie a bow on one side.

Press your dress with iron all over, it is now ready to wear!

How To Shop Walgreens (A Frugal Chick Video)

After the success of the “How To Shop CVS” video I thought I would follow up with a “How To Shop Walgreens” video as well!

One of the biggest complaints I get from people trying to coupon is that the drug stores are just so confusing.

I think they are actually the most fun because it is where I see the biggest savings.

So this weekend I took the time to film the portion of my coupon class where I teach Walgreens in an effort to help all of you understand how it works.

Now the other part to understanding Walgreens is HOW to read the Walgreens deals on my website.

So let’s take a look at a few sample deals and with your new found knowledge hopefully it will make more sense:

We will start with a simple one:

Morton Epsom Salt (4lbs) – $4.00
Get $4 RR
FREE after RR!

This means that when you get to the register you would pay $4 out of pocket.  BUT you would get a piece of paper (Register Rewards) worth $4 off your next transaction at Walgreens!

Nexcare Blister Waterproof Bandages (6 pk) – $3.50
Get $3.50 RR
$0.55/1 Nexcare Bandages, exp. 5/31/13 (SS 04/07/13 R)
$1/2 Nexcare Bandages, exp. 5/31/13 (SS 04/07/13)
Better than FREE after RR!

In this case the bandages are $3.50.  But you can use one of those two coupons to help you save.  So let’s say you have the $.55 of 1 coupon form the 04/07/13 Smart Source Insert.  At the register you would pay $2.95 and then get a piece of paper good for $3.50 off your next transaction at Walgreens.

Ban Antiperspirant/Deodorant – $1.99
Get 1000 Balance Rewards Points wyb 3
$0.40/1 Ban Product, exp. 5/26/13 (SS 04/14/13 R)
$0.75/1 Ban Solid, exp. 5/26/13 (SS 04/14/13 R)
As low as $1.24 ea. + 1000 Balance Rewards Points wyb 3!

In this case you use the coupon to get a lower price but they will also load 1000 points onto your Balance Rewards Card.  This is kind of like building up a Walgreens gift card.  Check out the dollar value of the points:

I hope this clears up Walgreens for you!
