Black Friday

So it's that time of year again... The biggest shopping day of the year - the Friday after Thanksgiving. Here are some of the websites that list the sales and show the ads. Hope you have fun out there!

Butter on Sale at Winco $1.66/lb and How to Can Butter

Winco currently has Meadow Gold butter for $1.66/lb. This is a great price! (Thanks Teresa)

Butter freezes really well. Plus I also have a friend that has posted how to can butter. I can't wait to try it!! If any of you try it, let us know how it turns out!


1. Use any butter that is on sale. Lesser quality butter requires more shaking (see #5 below), but the results are the same as with the expensive brands.

2. Heat pint jars in a 250 degree oven for 20 minutes, without rings or seals. One pound of butter slightly more than fills one pint jar, so if you melt 11 pounds of butter, heat 12 pint jars. A roasting pan works well for holding the pint jars while in the oven.

3. While the jars are heating, melt butter slowly until it comes to a slow boil. Using a large spatula, stir the bottom of the pot often to keep the butter from scorching. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes at least: a good simmer time will lessen the amount of shaking required (see #5 below). Place the lids in a small pot and bring to a boil, leaving the lids in simmering water until needed.

4. Stiring the melted butter from the bottom to the top with a soup ladle or small pot with a handle, pour the melted butter carefully into heated jars through a canning jar funnel. Leave 3/4" of head space in the jar, which allows room for the shaking process.

5. Carefully wipe off the top of the jars, then get a hot lid from the simmering water, add the lid and ring and tighten securely. Lids will seal as they cool. Once a few lids "ping," shake while the jars are still warm, but cool enough to handle easily, because the butter will separate and become foamy on top and white on the bottom. In a few minutes, shake again, and repeat until the butter retains the same consistency throughout the jar.

6. At this point, while still slightly warm, put the jars into a refrigerator. While cooling and hardening, shake again, and the melted butter will then look like butter and become firm. This final shaking is very important! Check every 5 minutes and give the jars a little shake until they are hardened in the jar! Leave in the refrigerator for an hour.

7. Canned butter should store for 3 years or longer on a cool, dark shelf. [It does last a long time. We have just used up the last of the butter we canned in 1999, and it was fine after 5 years.]

Canned butter does not "melt" again when opened, so it does not need to be refrigerated upon opening, provided it is used within a reasonable length of time.

I buy butter on sale, then keep it frozen until I have enough for canning 2 or 3 batches of a dozen jars each.

Free 20oz Dr. Pepper

For those of you who like Dr Pepper (gross...)! :-P

Dr Pepper to deliver on its free-soda promise Infamously delayed Guns N' Roses album prompted offer

LOS ANGELES - Dr Pepper is making good on its promise of free soda now that the release of Guns N' Roses' "Chinese Democracy" is a reality.

The soft-drink maker said in March that it would give a free soda to everyone in America if the album dropped in 2008. "Chinese Democracy," infamously delayed since recording began in 1994, goes on sale Sunday.

"We never thought this day would come," Tony Jacobs, Dr Pepper's vice president of marketing, said in a statement. "But now that it's here, all we can say is: The Dr Pepper's on us."

Beginning Sunday at 12:01 a.m., coupons for a free 20-ounce soda will be available for 24 hours on Dr Pepper's Web site. They'll be honored until Feb. 28.

Be Careful when buying Gift Cards this holiday season!

Many stores across America are being scheduled to close after the Christmas season due to economic difficulties and bankruptcy. If the store closes, the gift cards would be no good. Of course these companies would love you to give them money for a gift card that would be no good later on. Once a store declares bankruptcy they don't have to honor their gift cards.

Current Clearance

Edit - it's not doing the automatic $1.79 thing, but the other deals are working (25% off and free shipping). So there are still some great deals!

My friend C sent me this info - I haven't tried it yet, but I thought I'd get it out there.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know that at http://www.currentcatalog.com/ they are having a huge clearance on kids crafts, mostly Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas stuff. They have a bunch of stuff marked down to $2, $3, and $4, but it all went to $1.79 when I put it in my cart, not sure why. But the best part is that almost all of the crafts are packs of TWELVE, so if you do any sort of preschool co-op, or teaching, you can get 12 art projects for $1.79. If you're just doing this for yourself, like me, you will just have a lot of crafts to share. :)

I am pretty sure this deal is legit, but as always with things you find online, buy at your own risk. Although the site was quite busy earlier today, so some people on the message board where I read this had to call in their order, and it went through the same. I'm not sure why all the clearance is showing up at $1.79 instead of its listed price, or if that will change, but for right now this is an awesome deal!

There are also some online codes - use VIP in the coupon portion for an additional 25% off. And even better, use UE8 in the promo portion for free shipping.

Goody Coupon

Here's a link to a coupon for $2 off any Goody hair product.

I've been able to find them at Target and Walmart. LOVE this coupon!! There's a lot of clips and pony tail holders out there to be had for less than a buck. (Think stocking stuffers!!)

Buying Coupons

The coupons that you get in your Sunday papers vary from region to region. Not only the product, but the amounts vary also. Those on the East coast seem to get the higher values... Don't know why...

So, I have bought coupons on eBay or traded on A Full Cup or Slickdeals. You are not buying the coupons (that's against the rules), but you are paying for the persons time to cut, sort, etc.

I have also been a part of a Coupon Train. This is where you and 4-5 other people mail your coupons to each other. First person starts the train and mails to 2nd person. Second person takes out coupons that they want, then replaces those coupons with new ones. Second mails to 3rd. Rinse and Repeat. This works great unless you all shop the same deals at the same stores. Which is what happened in the train I was in... If anyone is interested in this, let me know and if there are enough that want to do it, I can hook you up with each others info.

Target Clearance

I found Ziploc baggies (sandwich size) on clearance for $.85. They are usually in the checkout lanes for $1. It's a hanging bag with 25 baggies in them. There are a bunch of Ziploc coupons and peelies out there, making these free or way cheap! If the coupon says "off any Ziploc container, or bag, etc", they can be used on these.

Also the Gillette Fusion and Venus razors were clearanced for $4.24. It's just the razor without refills. There are coupons for $4 off out there.
