product review johnson and johnson purpose

*update* $1/1 coupon at!
for the past few months, i have been struggling with some pre-menopausal acne.
my wonderful husband calls me his teenager.
still, not fun.
so i found this website,, and they recommended this face wash and some other over-the-counter products too.
my teens and i are trying it.
i love this face wash.
it cleans without drying.
smells like a baby.
and it's cheap!
best prices at walmart and target... less that $5.
and my face is clear :)

product review "slap ya mama" seasoning

i have the BEST neighbors in the world.
(hi don and wendy!)
a few months back, they visited family in louisiana.
they brought me the most awesome, basic, good-on-everything seasoning called, "slap ya mama".
it is a combination of salt, black pepper, red pepper, and garlic.
no extra junk.
perfect for A LOT of things i cook!
so, when i started to run low on this magic, i asked neighbor don, "can you get me some more?????"
unfortunately, it comes from louisiana :( may be a while.
because God loves me so much...
it came to pass that i ran into my sister- and brother-in-law at the local walmart.
(hi shannon and david!)
we were standing there chatting when david says, "slap ya mama"?????
there is was, in my own backyard!
priced at around $3.
use it on your meat and veggies and eggs and pasta and salads and dips and everything else :)
*it's near the hot sauce.

my new love

my family loves loves loves hidden valley ranch salad dressing.
on salad, on chicken nuggets, on potatoes, my daughter even eats it on pizza.
but it is expensive!
i've tried to make home-made.
i've tried other brands.
there is just no substitute.

but then i remembered....
my first experience with the "packet" of ranch dressing.
(that's how it started you know)
i must have been 12 years old.
dipping celery sticks.
i ate so much i got sick!
but i still love it.

my point is, the packs are much cheaper.
$1 each this week at harris teeter.
and it's easy to find sale mayo and milk is a staple.
so simple to mix up, your 3 and 5-year-olds can do it :)

organic veggies $1 at HT

do you subscribe the harris teeter e-wellness newsletter?
i do and i got this today.
these are on sale for $2 this week, so $1 for a pound of organic mixed vegetables!

"the wedge"

this is a fun, inexpensive, easy salad i make occasionally.
simply take a washed head of iceburg lettuce, core it and cut into 4 or 5 wedges.
top with salad dressing of your choice, we like ranch or blue cheese.
then "sprinkle" with small diced tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, green onions, and bacon.
you can top with what ever you have in the fridge!
my daughter put olives on her's.
add some freshly ground black pepper for the grand finale :)

harris teeter 10/20- 10/26

ad from hot coupon world
southern savers

what to do if you do not get the catalina printout you were expecting

how frustrating it can be.
you shop specifically to get that magic coupon printout at the end that will give you money off the next time you shop.
and then it doesn't pop out :(

first of all, always look at the catalina machine as you are checking out to make sure that little green light is on, meaning the machine is working properly.
last week at harris teeter, the light was on, but others were blinking.
before the transaction completed, i said something to the cashier.
sure enough, the paper was jammed.
she fixed it, and my catalinas printed fine.
saving me and customer service a lot of trouble!

okay here goes:

the email address is

send them an email with:
-store name and address
-time you were there
-what you bought
-the catalina you were expecting
-your vic or mvp card #
-the set of numbers that appears after the date and time you were there
should look something like this 0268 60 0132 7022
-your name and address

or you can call (24 hours after your purchase)
1-888-8coupon, option 3

you should get your cat in the mail within a week.

thanks to uummm at HCW for this valuable advice!

BTW, he gave me some awesome HT coupons that are going out in mailers this week. So...for everyone who receives HT mailers watch for these!

that darn kraft $5/5 coupon

just a heads up....
the $5/5 kraft printable will not work at bottom dollar.
the cashier was very sweet about it and even talked to the manager.
it's crazy because the sour cream and shredded cheese i was trying to buy even had the little "huddle for hunger" sticker on it.
i had my printout of items that were included.
she apologized profusely.
take it to food lion, i have used them there a few times with no problems.

but apparently it's not working at bottom dollar or walmart.

walmart kraft cheese

i was at the mooresville walmart yesterday and noticed that they have bags of shredded kraft cheese for $2.
if you have the $5/5 printable that's a pretty good deal.
it's still available here too!

my friend went to walmart yesterday to do the cheese deal.
he said they told him that the $5/5 coupon is fraudulent.
this is not so!
if you look on the coupon, there is a 16 digit number beneath a barcode looking thing on the right side.
if you go to the coupons, inc resource page, you can enter this number to tell if your coupon is legit.
i have seen displays sending consumers to the "huddle to fight hunger" website to print this coupon.
it IS a legitimate coupon.
i have had the cashiers at walmart tell me that they will not take an internet printable that beeps. and this coupon does beep (i think because it's a high value coupon).
this is not, however, part of the walmart corporate coupon policy.
you may want to print that out and take it with you.
i think if you want to try this coupon at walmart, talk with a manager before checking out, point out the "veri-fi" code and present your case!

you're not running out of super double deals are you?

i always check the harris teeter forums before i head out.
today there were new deals for molasses and lunch meat (which freezes nicely).
scroll down thru the whole list for new deals!

my new cooking adventures and trader joe's trip 8/20

so, we are down to one kid at home.
son #3 left for college almost 2 weeks ago.
he'll be attending Catawba Valley Community College, where he will be able to play baseball!
(which is all he knows he wants to do at this point :)

anyway, our daughter is a vegetarian and has been for almost 2 years.
she and i both love to cook, and my wonderful husband is willing to try pretty much anything we put in front of him!
while at home, son #3 enjoyed his piece of beef, chicken, or salmon every night, and ate fruits and veggies for medicinal purposes only.

i miss him, but my cooking world has broken wide open!
the first week he was gone, we enjoyed some wonderful vegetarian fare including israeli couscous with sweet potatoes and raisins, hummus and pita bread, penne with tomato-basil sauce and roasted vegetables, and yummy salads.
on friday afternoon, DD and i decided to take a field trip to trader joe's in charlotte. i haven't "splurged" on trips like this in a long while. but i was pleasantly surprised at what we found.
did you know that trader joe's is owned by the same company as discount grocer aldi?
they sell mainly their own brand of stuff.
we went for the fun, healthy food, but we found some great prices!

TJ's has lots of interesting items.
our choices this trip:
-mochi green tea ice cream $3.49
little balls of coated ice cream. the ice cream on the inside was good, but the doughy stuff on the outside was a little wierd. but we had to try it because joe jonas likes it.

-rice baked triangle snacks $2.69
these were like hash brown cakes that you would get at a fast food place, but made of rice. pretty good!
we had those with some stir-fry veggies ($1.99) added teriyaki tofu ($3.49, enough for 2 meals)

-balela salad ($2.19)
very healthy salad of garbanzo and black beans, tomatoes, onions, garlic, parsley, mint, with a vinegar and oil dressing. only 180 calories for the whole container.
i love this stuff!

-harvest grains blend ($2.69 for 1 lb.)
we love pasta and all carbs. this is a blend of israeli couscous, orzo, baby garbanzo beans, and red quinoa.
just boil it for 10 minutes, delish.

-roasted red pepper hummus ($2.99 for 10 oz)
trader joe's has the best hummus.
tons of flavors and types.

some things that surprised me:

great prices on beans. most inexpensive beans at the grocery store have added chemicals for color retention.
the majority of trader joe's beans have beans, water, and salt.
that's all i need!
prices range from 89¢- $1.09.
some i bought were organic, some not.

half and half $1.29. bottom dollar's price is $1.38!

bananas 19¢ each.
this works out to be about the same as bottom dollar, at 30-something cents a pound.
a lot of TJ's produce is sold by price per item, not per pound.

whole bean coffee $3.99 for 13 oz and sold in the cutest reusable paper canisters!
a lot of their packaging is very cool.

coconut milk 99¢.
that is cheap!

steel cut oats $2.29

mini pearl grape tomatoes $2.49 for a pound!
very generous joe :)

2 buck chuck $2.99.
this is trader joe's brand of wine.
lots of "flavors".
all good :)

here's a website devoted to trader joe's items.
take a look around.

the atmosphere at trader joe's is awesome too.
as you walk in, they have activities for the kids....and forks and spoons to go, just in case you can't wait to eat what you got!

here's another article about trader joe's.
