Comp list 8/13 - 8/19

Remember to always check your store policy for Comp/coupon shopping.  Stores vary some will let you comp store brand for store brand some won't.  Always carry a copy of the store policy to refer back to.  

Print List Here

Always check for online coupons to match the sales.   My Walmart will not accept these coupons if they don't scan.  While checking out one week I noticed that after so many coupons they all stop scanning.  So always hand the online coupons first and when they have finished scanning these hand them the manufactures coupons.  They will manually put these in.

Chillicothe MO. Farmers Market

10 Reasons to Visit Chillicothe's Farmers Market

On May 3rd at 8:00 a.m. the Chillicothe Farmers Market will open for the season!  You will find it on the West side of the Livingston County Courthouse on Washington Street in Chillicothe, MO.
Here are 10 reasons to visit the Farmers Market.
1. You will only find Super Fresh and Local produce at a Farmers Market.  Produce at the grocery store has likely been sitting around waiting for you for weeks.

2. You will find local hand-made products that are better for you and your family than the chemical laden mass produced products.

3. You will find a wonderful variety of homemade baked goods made with pure and wholesome ingredients.  The quality of homemade baked goods by far surpasses any grocery store product.

4. Your money stays in the local economy.

5. The goods your purchase at a farmers market are almost always produced in a sustainable way, which is very good for the environment.

6. Most of the produce is grown using only organic fertilizers and pesticides.

7.  Shopping at a Farmers Market supports local farmers and vendors.

8. The vendors at your Farmers Market can inform you of their products, where and how they were produced and the best way to use the product.

9. The experience of shopping at a Farmers Market is organic, relaxing, fun and educational.  It is an experience you can not replicate at any other type of market.

10.  My favorite thing about a Farmers Market is the unique products that are available.  Hand-made soaps made with beautiful smelling, insect repelling essential oils and heirloom tomatoes are my ultimate favorite!  You can't find those at a grocery store either!

Spring Cleaning Its almost time !!!

I don't know about you but I have already started my Spring cleaning.  This is one of my all time favorite home made cleaners.   Its easy to make and very low in cost.  It not only cleans it kills Germs too.  I love it because you don't have to switch cleaners.  It doesn't streak so you can use it on windows and mirrors.  I even mop with it.  I buy those white shop rags in the auto dept at Walmart and use them on my swiffer they are great and you can just throw them in the wash and bleach them white again.  Check out our other home made cleaners they are under the Frugal Home Care Tips.  ~ Ethel


All Purpose Cleaner

I have this cleaner that I have been making for years...and I love love love it!!! I use it to clean my bathrooms every single day, mirror, shower, tub, sink, toilet.  It cleans it all.  I use it to clean my windows, counters, floors, sink, stove, ect.  It truly is all purpose, and it costs pennies to make.
Here is what you need:
1 - 32 oz. spray bottle
1 tsp. dish soap
1 TBSP. ammonia (I'm using lemon.)
1 TBSP. lemon juice
2 TBSP. vinegar (I'm using orange.)
1/3 cup rubbing alcohol
Using a funnel, begin by adding the dish soap into the empty spray bottle.  Follow that with the lemon juice, vinegar and ammonia.  These are your cleaning agents.
Next, pour in your rubbing alcohol. This helps the cleaner to be streak free. It also gives it some extra germ killing power.
Fill your bottle the rest of the way with cold tap water, slap on the spray top and give your bottle a little shake.  Then grab a towel and go to town cleaning.  Just beware, the first time you make this, you should give yourself plenty of extra time to clean.  You are going to go from room to room spraying and wiping everything in sight, just to see how awesome it cleans ;)

I always mix mine in batches of 3. One to keep in each bathroom and one for the kitchen

Home made Salsa

I through this salsa together tonight and boy is it good
You will need :
2 cans diced tomatoes ( I used one Italian style with onion and garlic and one with green chili's I suppose stewed would work fine.)
1 large sweet onion
6 large cloves of garlic peeled
4 jalapeno peppers cut in a few pieces (seeds removed for a milder salsa)
1 medium bunch of cilantro, stems removed
7 oz can of diced green chilies
6 tsp ground cumin
2 Tablespoons of fresh lime or lemon juice
2 tsp. salt
4 tsp sugar
4 lb fresh tomatoes 4 large or 8 smaller ones

Place everything except the fresh tomatoes into the work bowl of a food processor.  Process until the mixture is as smooth/chunky as you like.  Transfer into a large bowl.  (This makes a bunch if you want a smaller amount you can cut this in half)

Cut the fresh tomatoes into chunks, and process in the food processor until as finely chopped as you like.  Don't over process you don't want tomato puree.  Stir the tomatoes into the remaining ingredients in the bowl.
