Jewel's ConAgra Catalina Deal 4/23-4/29

It's time for another Catalina deal at Jewel! Spend $25 & save $10 on your next shopping trip. Remember how these catalina deals work: When it says spend $25, the catalina is triggered when the register gets to $25 (excluding tax) before scanning the preferred card. Below are the included products, and scroll all the way down to see scenarios, which I will update as I discover more amazing ones.

Coupons to Print

Here are a few coupons I'd recommend that you print while they're available here:
  • $1 off Scott Naturals Toilet Paper
  • $1 off any one V-8 juice
  • $1.50 off any one Huggies Diapers
  • $1.50 off any two boxes of Kashi Cereal
  • $1.50 off any two boxes of Kotex Liners
There's also a link on my sidebar for VistaPrint. If you are in need of any business cards or other printed cards, please link through my site. I just put an order in yesterday, and I've also used them in the past. They do a great job with their printing.

Cheap Electrasol

These Electrasol Gelpacs are my absolute favorites for getting the dishwasher to do its job right! And since I started couponing, I've been able to find them extremely cheap. Sunday's paper had a coupon for $2.50 off 1 box. This week, Meijer has the boxes on sale for $3 each (Target usually has them for around this price also). So pick up some inexpensive Electrasol this week!

Thanks, Little Miss Know it All.

High Value Campbell's Soup Coupon

A while back, I was able to print two of these coupons, and now they have been reset! Go here to print your coupon for $1 off 2 cans of cooking soups. Paired with a sale, this will give you some cheap soup!

Thanks, Money Saving Mom!


Thank you, dear readers, for your patience as I've been a bit sidetracked the past couple weeks. Those of you who know me are aware that I have entrepreneurial tendencies in my genes. I started teaching piano lessons in eighth grade and had up to 45 students at one point after receiving my B.A. After high school, I faced serious health challenges that made me delve into lots of reading about natural remedies. Thankfully, a well-trusted doctor with an additional degree in biochemistry recommended me to Body Wise, and because of the tremendous results that ensued, I began a part-time business on my own. Now I'm at home with my children after teaching full-time for 8 years. Let me tell you, it's definitely rewarding, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

But in the last few weeks, my husband and I have been working like crazy to put him into business again. A few years ago, he was doing business as Dan's Tree Service, but for the last year and half, he's been working as an employee for the largest tree care company in the nation. He enjoyed his time with them and learned volumes, but he is now partnering with a friend, and they have started Arborworks, LLC, an environmental tree and grounds care company. Since Dan is an ISA Certified Arborist and ISA Certified Tree Climber Specialist, he will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the field. His customers have always given rave reviews about the quality of his work and expertise in the field.

As many of you know who have started a business, there's a ton of groundwork to lay and many hours of preparation to put in. That should explain where I've been the past few weeks. However, I can't wait to tell you about the new Jewel Catalina that will be starting Thursday! As soon as I lay my eyes on that ad, I will tell you what the best deals will be. (It's going to be a ConAgra deal--buy $25, get $10 back in catalinas.)

Until then, I'll keep my eyes open for more amazing deals. And if you live in the greater Chicagoland area and are in need of treework, give us a call at 630-352-3215 or drop an email to We'd love to be of service to you and help make your property beautiful!
