Guest Post: 5 Ways to Save Money at the Grocery Store

Posted by Hallee on Apr 8, 2013 in Budgeting, Housekeeping, Life, Stewardship

Long before coupon blogs were popular, long before television shows about extreme couponing filled the airways, my friend Andrea and I would sit in the church nursery nursing our newborn sons and talk about the deals she’d found working a couponing system. It was amazing this skill she’d acquired. As she perfected it, she started teaching classes to women all over the central Kentucky area on how to save money the way she did. She is a master at it, and is an amazing teacher. For instance, look at the 50 things she got for free in February this year.

Sometimes Discount is the Same

Posted by Hallee on Nov 16, 2012 in Housekeeping, Life, Stewardship

The other day, Kroger had butter on sale for $2.29 per pound. Gregg called me and said that the Aldi in Lexington had butter for $1.89 per pound as a regular, non-sale price. Aldi is a super discount grocery store. I told Gregg I didn’t necessarily know about getting butter from there. He stopped and bought one pound just for me to check it out.

Homemade Powdered Dishwasher Detergent

Posted by Hallee on Aug 18, 2011 in Housekeeping, Stewardship

I’ve needed to go to the commissary for several weeks now, but have put it off or things have gotten in the way or I’ve just not had time. And there I sat, three days before a planned trip to the commissary, but out of dishwasher detergent.

Homemade Fabric Softener

I’m telling you, this was so easy that I cannot understand why I didn’t do this before.

Gobble Gobble

Posted by Hallee on Aug 27, 2010 in Budgeting, Hallee's Galley, Housekeeping, Preserving, Stewardship

Several months ago, our local Kroger had turkeys on sale for 59¢ a pound. I checked with Heather at Couponning 101 if that was a good deal, because I typically just shop for meat and staples at the commissary. She told me it was, so I bought two of them.

Tip: How to Break Down a Chicken

Posted by Hallee on Dec 3, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

It’s so much cheaper to break your own chicken down than to pay the price for a “whole cut up chicken”. Substantially cheaper. Cheaper like half as much per pound cheaper. Here’s how you break down a bird.

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Posted by Hallee on Nov 20, 2009 in Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

Vanilla extract is expensive. Every month the prices just keep going up. I reckoned that it’s nothing more than vanilla beans and alcohol. Did some research and turned out I was right.

Consignment finds & the smartest clothing invention ever

Posted by Hallee on Oct 24, 2009 in Budgeting, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls, Stewardship

Consignment stores are such a godsend. Because we’ve never really had to buy clothes for the boys, they’ve never been anywhere on my radar. But when I told Gregg that I needed to get Scott new pants, he’s the one who suggested that I check out the consignment store first.
