Happy Birthday from Arby’s – they’ll send you a coupon for a free 12 oz shake with any purchase, excluding value menu items. Join Arby’s Extras here!
We should be getting 3 inserts in this Sunday’s paper: Smartsource, RedPlum, and Proctor and Gamble You can view the preview right here in the Springs Bargains Coupon Database.
Coupons vary greatly by region, so we may have different values or totally different brands in our inserts. I don’t actually see too many I’m interested in this week, so I might not buy any extras.
You can still get a subscription to the Gazette for $1 for an entire year (plus $5 goes to the school of your choice). I highly recommend subscribing to the Denver Post first, because it has more/higher value coupons, but for a buck for an entire year, the Gazette is definitely worth it!
If you’re wondering about the differences between the two newspaper coupon inserts, read this post comparing the Post vs. the Gazette on one particular week.
Printable coupons are always available on the Printable Coupons page!
I will certainly be picking up some frozen pizzas and gum this week! And, if you haven’t stocked up on your cough drops and cough syrup, you have another opportunity. Shopping on Sunday will get you the best deal on shampoo and gum (note the items in red).
Be sure to read “Walgreens Coupon Policy and FAQ” if you are a new Walgreens shopper, or even if you aren’t sure that you’re making the most of your shopping experiences!

Remember that you can never use more coupons (total number of manufacturer, store, and RR) than items in a single transaction. Sometimes you need to grab a couple small items so that you can equal things out. Of course the best fillers are those that don’t require an additional coupon and those are marked with an asterisk (*). Here are some good “fillers” for this week.

What deals are you going to be doing at Walgreens this week?
Time for What To Make With What’s On Sale! Let’s get to work pulling together what’s on sale in Colorado Springs with what’s in our pantries from previous weeks, and plan meals for our families that maximize those sales.
Albertson’s has whole chickens for $0.69/lb (limit 2) – not quite as low as they’ve ever gone, but still a great price. OK, you guys are going to think I’m crazy, but yesterday I was thinking about this post and what to include, and was thinking I could probably share some recipes for whole chickens since they are on sale for a decent price.
Then, I dreamed that they went on sale for twenty-nine cents per pound, and though “oh my, I have to include them in WTMWWOS”! So yes, I dream about blogging.
Anyway. I want to find a good recipe for white chicken chili. When I was on a Pioneer Woman Chicken Enchilada kick for awhile, I was thinking I could probably adapt that recipe a bit and come up with an awesome chicken chili. Here’s some more good-lookin chicken chili or soup recipes:
Whole Foods Market has chicken broth for $1/carton after coupon if you need extra broth after cooking the chicken, or are making other soups.
Albertsons has salmon for $3.99/lb this week! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen it that low, and I’m looking forward to making our favorite Brown Sugar and Mustard Glazed Salmon. I broil instead of grilling, and serve the extra sauce over broccoli (on sale for $0.49/lb yesterday at Rancho Liborio, though I’ll end up paying full price somewhere else).
This Salmon Tomato Chowder looks great for the cold weather we’ve been having. These Salmon Cakes look easy, and you’re supposed to refrigerated them for 1/2 hour before baking – I wonder if you could refrigerate them longer, like a day? I’ve been trying to “cook ahead” as I can, and like preparing things halfway and then finishing the final bit of cooking at suppertime.
I’m also thinking you could do something with the salmon and the cheap Shake ‘N Bake at Albertson’s. The challenge would be keeping the fish moist, I think. Not a fan of dry fish! :)
Sunflower Market has acorn, butternut, and spaghetti squash on sale for $0.49/lb this week. I’ll admit we are not squash lovers around here (you know I’m using spaghetti and acorn squash as decoration, right?), so I’m not sure we’ll be eating that this week. But, I’m willing to try if I find a sure-fire winning recipe! Here’s a few I’m thinking about:
What do you do with winter squashes?
Here’s why a Honeycrisp apple is so special (and typically pricy!):
[The Honeycrisp apple] is characterized by an exceptionally crisp and juicy texture. Its flesh is cream colored and coarse. The flavor is sub-acid and ranges from mild and well-balanced to strongly aromatic, depending on the degree of maturity. It has consistently ranked as one of the highest quality apples in the University of Minnesota sensory evaluations.
Honeycrisp fruit has shown excellent storage characteristics. The outstanding flavor and texture can be maintained for at least six months in refrigerated storage without atmosphere modification.
– from Honeycrisp.org
Whole Foods has organic Honeycrisp apples on sale for $1.49/lb today (Friday) only! I’m curious about the six-months storage thing. I wonder how long it takes these apples to get from tree to table, and how long you could store them in your home refrigerator after purchasing at the store.
Heather said these apples make the best apple crisps and dried apples – what are your favorite recipes for Honeycrisp apples specifically?

By the way, you can now print Coupons.com coupons right here on Springs Bargains! The thing that I am most excited about is that you can sort by brand in the left column now, too – not just by category. It doesn’t include all of the brands, but it does have a handful, making it much easier to find some of those coupons.
In case you didn’t know, you can also print RedPlum and Smartsource coupons on this site, too. I love that Smartsource has a dropdown menu with all the brands, making it so much easier to see if they have a coupon you’re looking for.
Here’s more printable grocery coupons, updated throughout the day!
Here’s a new printable coupon to get a free lip item (up to $8) with any purchase at Bath and Body Works! The coupon is valid through Sunday, October 31.
