Been a while...

It's been a while since I've posted... We don't have internet access at home anymore for now. Right now we are working on cleaning up and going through our freezer and pantry stashes, before getting more... It's always good to try to use through excess every so often so that you throw out less expired things.

I have a facebook page now, @Coupon Dawn. Come check it out! Not posting a whole lot right now, trying to get used to library internet again...

$1.50 supper!

Well, I just finished the best $1.50 supper I've ever had! :)

I got 2 Chef's Requested Bacon Wrapped Beef Filets for $.98 at Walmart with a $3 off coupon from This coupon has reached its max, and the site states that you can register to receive an email when it resets and get 4 different $1 off coupons.

With the steaks we had Libby's green beans that I got on sale around Christmas with a coupon. I don't remember exactly how much I payed, but I think it was $.50 a can.

Steak for Pennies!

The $3/1 Chef’s Requested Steak coupon is still available when you sign up here.

According to the Money Saving Mom blog, the Chef’s Requested Bacon Wrapped Steaks are priced at $3.28 at Walmart making them only $0.28 after the coupon. They may not be priced that near you, but still, steak for less than a dollar, is still a good deal!

Thanks, Money Saving Mom!
