Rise and Shine Feb. 1 – Safeway $5 Friday, Costco and Winco match-ups, new coupons

Good morning and welcome to February! Any big events or plans for this month?


My daughter and I stayed home again yesterday trying to kick this fever of hers (still going this morning, so we’re off to the doc). We did decorate the front window with window peelies from Winco and I think it made her day. She was excited to show her decorations to daddy and brother (her two true Valentines). Window peelies certainly aren’t the most creative, or Pinterest-worthy decorations, but they are definitely one of the most kid-friendly decorations (and frugal!). We also put them on our back sliding doors and the kids move them around and play with them all season. The windows of course have to be washed afterward, but I pretty much have to wash anything the kids touch or play with anyway. :) I also got a few things from the Dollar Store – doily paper hearts and a felt heart banner that we’ll put up too. Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? 

I don’t want to brag, but we posted some awesome things yesterday – including Costco coupon match-ups and Winco match-ups!

I cannot wait to show you our featured chicken coop tomorrow morning. It’s GLORIOUS. I think it’s the prettiest chicken coop, and setting, I’ve ever seen. Check back tomorrow morning for that goodness. You can see past Chicken Coops here.


It’s a new month, which means lots of new or reset coupons.

Did you know when you buy conversation hearts for $0.25 cents per box that you’re paying $4 a pound (for a 1 oz box)?! You can buy them for only $1.58/lb at Winco. Yesterday I shared a list of my favorite Valentine bulk candy prices from my local Winco – they had a lot of selection and the prices were great!


Last night I really, really wanted to order Indian Food take out. It had been a long day (a long week!) and it would have only taken a simple text to the King Bee (and $30+) and we’d have dinner. But I was strong. I just keep thinking about how much food you can get for $30 at QFC this week.


We took our leftover Quinoa Chicken Chili and half a bag of stale chips and we made nachos. The chili had thickened up quite a bit overnight (I knew it would!) – so it acted almost as the meat for our nachos. We topped with shredded cheese, black beans, pinto beans, sour cream, guacamole, salsa and some bean dip. Wash it down with a Corona and lime. It was righteous and I didn’t even have to pretend to watch a football game. Score! Do you ever do this? Take leftovers and turn it into a “new” meal? 

{To make nachos, take a baking sheet, spread out tortilla chips, layer with cooked meat (or leftover chili) and all your favorite fixings (leave off guac, sour cream and salsa until after it bakes). Bake at 375 degrees until cheese starts to brown and the iddle is warm! Then you make jokes about how it’s Nach-os, but mine.}

I have no idea what we’re having this next week for meals. I need to sit down and meal plan. What are you making for the Super Bowl?

It’s $5 Friday at Safeway! Check out the Safeway match-up to find the $5 Friday deals.
