KOLD Dinner Idea Under $5

Aunt Cosette's Gnocchi Potato Dumplings
from 101 Things To Do With A Potato (Retails for $9.95)

16 cups water
2 teaspoons salt
2 medium russet potatoes, baked, peeled, and mashed*
2 cups flour
2 jars (26 ounces each) chunky spaghetti sauce, hot

In a 6-quart soup pan, bring water and salt to a boil. In a separate bowl, combine warm mashed potatoes and flour to make a uniform and tender dough (not sticky). Divide dough into four sections. Roll each section into a 3/4-inch-thick rope, then cut into 3/4-inch pieces. Roll pieces into balls. Push your thumb into the center of the ball, making a dent. Drop into boiling water. Balls will fall to bottom of pan. Once balls float back to the top, remove and strain 2-3 minutes. Repeat until all the dough is cooked. Transfer dumplings to a serving dish and cover with spaghetti sauce. Serve immediately. Makes 6-8 servings.

* Approximately 1 pound total weight.

BASHAS Shopping List:
Idaho Russet Potatoes 5 lb bag $1.49
Food Club All-Purpose Flour 5 lb bag $1.99 (Most people already have this.)
2 jars (26 oz. each) Ragu Spaghetti Sauce $1.33 each when you buy 3 with in-ad coupon

9/22- 9/28 This Weeks Printable Coupon and Rebates

Glade Flameless Candle Deal at Fry's


My Penny Pile shared the following: "I had noticed this deal when I was at Kroger's last week, but with the Buy one get one free printable coupon posted by money saving mom, it'll give you a profit. They were bought out last time I was there, hopefully they'll restock. Here's how it works.

Buy 2 Glade Flameless Candles for 9.99 each
- BOGO printable coupon
- 5.00 off coupon in 9/14 Sunday Paper (some areas received a full rebate instead)
= 4.99

BUT for each candle you buy at Kroger until, I believe, 10/5 you will receive a coupon print out for $4 off your next Kroger purchase.
so 2, $4 coupons= 3.01 profit"

They are doing the same deal at our Fry's! I noticed it when I was there yesterday. I forgot to see how long the promotion is going though. Sorry! Our Fry's is limiting it to 1 $4 off your next Kroger purchase with this deal, making it almost free.


Wendy's $1 off on any Wendy's Premium Hamburger here






Johnson's Buddies bar soap for kids is priced at .99 at most store I've seen it so far (Wal-Mart, Kroger, CVS) Use the following $1 printable coupon to get it for free! It's usually found in the baby aisle next to the baby shampoo. Johnson's Buddies $1 off printable coupon



Scrubbing Bubbles Rebate


I received a Scrubbing bubbles Action Kit rebate in Sunday's 9/22 paper with the Smart Source coupons. It's free after rebate, but if you go here to print a coupon for 2.25 off, you make a profit after rebate. You always receive the full purchase price for rebates before coupons. Limit one rebate (up to $5.69) per name, family, address or household.

9/16 Walmart Deals

I spent an hour and a half waiting for a prescription to be filled at the Walmart on Cortaro at I-10. While I was aimlessly wandering/waiting, I spotted some great deals to pass on to you.

Walmart still had a good amount of the Hannah Montana/High School Musical girl shirts (sizes 6-16) for $3 per shirt. They have baby girl swim suits sizes 18m and 24m for $1. They also had a baby shorts boy and girl on clearance for $1. They had more baby clearance for $2, $3, and $5.
They had a lot of adult summer clothing on clearance including swim suits.

The best deal that I found personally was on their sandals. They have a selection of little kids size 10, 11, 12, and 13 sandals for $1.50 and $3. They also had adult men's water shoes about 50 pairs in size 7/8 only. They had flip flops for $1. They also had the Earth Spirit Sandals regularly priced $14.92 on clearance for $5 pair. The sandals on clearance can be found on the row across from the fake flowers and the next row over. Unfortunately they haven't marked down any in the baby section.

Happy Saving!
