food lion 4/16

i went up to the food lion on shearer's road because it's PAYDAY!
had an awesome trip.
here's what i got:
-boneless skinless chicken breasts $1.59/lb

-london broil $1.98/lb
i tried to use the kiosk coupon scanner thing when i went in. it was out of paper i think. when i was loading my groceries into the van, i noticed a $1/$10 on butcher brand beef coupon in a cart in the parking lot. remember these coupons count the price before mvp discount, so that would have worked on the piece of beef i bought, even though i only paid $4.83 for 2.44 lb. so, try your luck at getting that coupon, or if you go today, look in the carts outside!
*UPDATE* i just got a text coupon loaded to my mvp card for $2/$10 beef!

-scotties tissues 99¢
use 2 $1/1 printable here. (make sure to select "no" in the box that asks if you are a regular user of scotties. i had to use 2 computers, it would only let me print one.
stack this with the b2g1f coupon that is in the food lion home & earth booklet located with the sales flyers at the front of the store.
3 boxes of free tissues!
look for the larger packs that are on the bottom shelf.

-free food lion simply living cereal and healthy choice meals.
have you signed up for food lion's text coupons yet?
go here for info...

text FREECEREAL to 467467 to receive a FREE Box of Food Lion Simple Living Cereal. The savings will be loaded directly onto your MVP card (up to a $2.99 value). This offer is good through 5/15.
text CHOICE to 467467 - Get $4 off 2 Healthy Choice frozen dinners added to your MVP card.
the cereal was free already, but the healthy choice dinners were on sale for $2, making them free as well! they had some "all natural" options so i got those.
also, i had a $1/2 coupon for the healthy choice dinners from the 3/28 SS.
so i made $1 :)

-brocolli $1.69/lb
-radishes $1.19/lb (try this chopped salad recipe)
-strawberries $2.50

and i am going to go back, because there is a $1/1 food lion printable jif peanut butter coupon and it is priced at $2.35, even the "natural" kind.
i'm also thinking about getting some more london broil and having them grind it into hamburger. will that work???

food revolution and the evolution of couponing

even though my "baby" is almost 15-years-old (gasp), i still love having playgroup with my friends once a week. hey, the Bible says you are supposed to hang out with other women and have coffee and something sweet and meaningful discussion and council as requested
(see titus 2:3-5).
topic of discussion this morning:
getting babies to sleep
babies weird dry skin
hippos that live under trees
jamie oliver's food revolution
my friend erin has been watching this show from it's beginning.
she highly recommended it. last night, DD and i watched 2 45-minute episodes on hulu.
the premise:
jamie goes into a community that has the highest obesity and death rate in the country, to try and change their way of eating....starting with the school kids.
great reality TV.
great reality check.
my SIL shannon commented that the trouble with couponing is sometimes the best deals are JUNK.
but if we can save on toilet paper, laundry detergent, and toothpaste, then we can have more money for fresh, wonderful, God-created food.
that's my plan.
check out jamie's website and sign his petition for a healthier america.
check out this coleslaw recipe, made it for dinner tonight. yummy.
