Quick Minestrone Soup (Frugal Food Thursday)



Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday!  If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below! 

Here at the Frugal Follies household, we've been trying to cut back on carbohydrate foods.  That's really a challenge when you're trying to save money as well!

A few nights ago, I made a tossed salad with leftover chicken, but it didn't seem like enough for a dinner.  I remembered that I had homemade chicken stock in the fridge, which I had made a few days earlier.  I combined the stock with canned tomatoes and kidney beans, vegetables, and just a small amount of veggie macaroni to make a yummy, quick minestrone soup!

Here's the recipe:

Publix: Saving money is my Mott-o!


This week at Publix, I was really excited about the great deal on Mott's apple juice!  After the BOGO sale and coupons, each bottle was only 44 cents!  I bought four for now, but will probably get more once I straighten up my pantry and make room for more bottles.

All together, I was able to get everything pictured above for under $20 and saved 77%!  Great week!

I also discovered Hopster coupons - have you tried them?  They are printable coupons, and you can increase the value of the coupons by following participating companies on social media sites or doing small tasks.  One downside is that you can only print each coupon once.  I was able to increase a coupon for Fab from $1.00 off to $2.00 off!

Here's what I got:

4 Multi-Grain Cheerios @ BOGO $4.45 = $8.90
- 2 $1/2 Cheerios Cereal printable
= $6.90 for four, or $1.73 each

2 Mid's pasta sauce @ BOGO $4.59
- 2 $1/1 Mid's Homestyle Pasta Sauce printable
= $2.59 for two, or $1.30 each

2 Pepperidge Farm swirl bread @ BOGO $3.99
- 2 $0.40/1 Pepperidge Farm Swirl Bread or Bagels, exp. 12/1/13 (SS 09/22/13)
= $3.19 for two, or $1.60 each
(These come in new fall flavors - Caramel Apple and Pumpkin Spice.  They are delicious as a snack covered in cream cheese!)

2 Quaker Real Medley bars @ BOGO $3.99
- 2 $1/1 Quaker Real Medley bars printable
- $1/2 Quaker Item Target printable
= 99¢ for two, or 50¢ each

4 Nestle Toll House cookie dough @ BOGO $3.49 = $6.98
- 2 $1.25/2 Nestle Toll House Refrigerated Cookie Dough printable
=  $4.48 for four, or $1.12 each

4 Mott's apple juice @ BOGO $2.87 = $5.74
- 4 $1 off Mott's Juice Size, Snack & Go Pouches, Applesauce or Medleys Cups, exp. 11/17/13 (SS 10/06/13 #2)
= $1.74 for four, or 44¢ each

4 Mott's applesauce @ BOGO $2.39 = $4.78
- 2 $1 off Mott's Juice Size, Snack & Go Pouches, Applesauce or Medleys Cups, exp. 11/17/13 (SS 10/06/13 #2)
=  $2.78 for four, or 70¢ each

2 Fab laundry detergent @ BOGO $3.99
- $2/1 Fab printable coupon
= $1.99 for two, or $1.00 each

- $5 off $30 Winn-Dixie coupon (Enjoy the City)

Tax: 24¢
Total spent: $19.90
Total saved compared to Publix full prices: $66.26

Gadget of Your Choice Giveaway



Welcome To The Choose Your Gadget Giveaway

Organized by: Mom Powered Media. Co-hosted by the following amazing MPM Network Bloggers: Bay Area Mommy, My Dairy Free Gluten Free Life, A Medic's World and Barefoot In Bluejeans.

Emperola.com is the easiest way to create giveaways on any Facebook page. Just simply create new giveaway here and Get thousands of new fans NOW! All giveaways are strongly promoted at Emperola.com

Do You Think Electronic Device Insurance Is Really Necessary?
Some analysts suggest that insurance such as for your smartphone is expensive and unnecessary. While consumer research strongly indicates that the popularity of such phones, and the ease of breaking them, makes insurance on the devices extremely important to consumers. In fact it indicates that 80 million cell phones of all varieties will be lost, stolen or damaged this year. Now that is a lot of money lost on your favorite electronic device.

Asurion Saves You from Mobile Mishaps. In fact a complete Asurion protection package, available through most wireless carriers, provides consumers with (1) Software that protects mobile data against the growing number of cell phone/smartphone threats and helps them locate a lost or stolen phone and (2) A replacement device, usually overnight, in the event a phone is lost, damaged (even water damaged) or stolen. Even better this piece of mind insurance costs a few dollars a month.
What device will you protect?

One lucky reader will receive the Smartphone or Tablet of their choice {up to $800 value}!

Giveaway ends November 21st at 11:59pm, open to US, ages 18+. To enter please use the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck.

Orkin Ecologist site - time to #BugOut!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Orkin Ecologist. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you have katsaridaphobia?

I do! It's the fear of cockroaches. Oh, how I hate finding one in my house!

Generally, we don't have a lot of insects in the house - as we live in bug-filled South Florida, having an exterminator visit every other month is pretty much a requirement for me. But the bugs still manage to get it, and when I see something big and black moving out of the corner of my eye - oh, that is such a terrible feeling!

My oldest daughter doesn't have katsaridaphobia, though - if she finds a cockroach or other large bug in the house, she'll get a napkin, let the bug crawl on, then take it outside and release it on the lawn. That's not my technique. Mine involves a large shoe and a tissue.

I learned that the fear of cockroaches is called katsaridaphobia from an interesting article that I read about the top 10 bug phobias.  Check it out!  You'll learn the fancy names of quite a few bug phobias - the names are what I find the most interesting, since they are derived from Greek.  You'll probably find some phobias that you hadn't considered before!

I found this article on the Orkin Ecologist site.  At Orkin, controlling bugs is their job, so it's really important that they be knowledgeable about bugs.  They've been studying bugs for over 100 years - not just to know how to get rid of them, but also because bugs are just so interesting! The site is a great educational science resource for both novices and experts.  Whether you want to learn about their bug of the month, get the latest bug news, or learn how to share their information with others, the Orkin Ecologist site will really help you!

Want to learn more?  Check out their Facebook page or their Pinterest page.  You can also share your favorite (or perhaps least favorite?) bug-related moments on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtage #bugout, or leave a comment below!

$500 Kmart Gift Card Giveaway


It’s Halloween Giveaway Event


Here's a favorite pumpkin recipe for Halloween - Pumpkin Whole Wheat Rolls. Slather them with some apple butter or jelly for a quick Halloween dinner before trick-or-treating!

PUMPKIN WHOLE WHEAT BREAD MACHINE ROLLS

3/4 cup warm water
4 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling!)
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 tsp vital wheat gluten
1 tbsp yeast

Add the ingredients to the bread machine in the order shown or in the order described by your bread machine's manual. Set on the dough cycle.

When the dough cycle finishes, remove the dough to a floured surface. Knead the dough for 1 minute. Separate the dough into 16 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Place the dough balls in a 4x4 pattern in a greased 8x8 pan. Cover the pan with a dishtowel and allow the dough to rise for 1 hour in a warm area.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 15 minutes, then cover the rolls with aluminum foil to prevent overbrowning and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Allow to cool, then remove rolls and break them apart.

Makes 16 rolls.

Banana-Apple Bread (Frugal Food Thursday)

banana bread

Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday!  If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below! 

It's fall here in South Florida.  That means that it gets into the 70s at night, but it's still in the high 80s during the day.  Not exactly the kind of crisp weather you hope for fall.

But what we do have that is crisp is apples!  Okay, they don't grow here, but we get them nonetheless!  Here's a favorite frugal, fun food with apples - banana-apple bread!

Here's the recipe:
