Sunday Coups, Target's Produce, Organics, Crockpot Chick Recipe

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Here is a video I watched to get points and it's really good, and really short:
3 Tricks to Burn More Fat in Less Time

That is so true for me; walking while listening to a radio made ALL the dif for me; it wasn't even music. I have to find a way to do so again. Can't afford much but I will start looking. I'll look on Amazon and to see what's available and pricing, and start from there. I've never had an MP3, and don't know if they still make Sony Walkmans, which are from the 80's era I think. I've heard iPODs are too expensive. After looking around then I will look for used. But first time mgmt priority is job hunting.

Chicken legs are a frugal buy. Here's a Crockpot Recipe I want to try, using them:
Crockpot Chicken Legs & Wild Rice

I am glad to see organics are spreading everywhere. Here are some Walgreens Organic Deals that start Sunday, 1.27.13 - 2.2.13, even though I don't buy processed cereal or canned soups:

Speaking of Sunday, there are FOUR COUPON INSERTS , 2 Red Plum, 1 SmartSource, and 1 Proctor & Gamble. Definitely getting 2 papers this Sunday! emoticon

Speaking of organics spreading everywhere, I went to Target for the first time in a long time last week, to do a return. I'm not a Target fan. The stores waste your time by being too big, and the merch is too pricey for this Super Frugalista. But when I was there this week, I had already been to several grocery stores looking for specifics. So I thought, hey, while I'm here and have a few mins to spare, this time I should see what Target's grocery selection looks like since I've never shopped in a Super Target.

I found good and bad in Target's fresh produce; and was so glad to find another source near by for the good items (there are no Trader Joes or Whole Foods or anything else here, without driving 30-40 miles one way). Was overjoyed to see organic Granny Smith apples and celery. They look like regular stock items, and organic apples I can find here only about once every 3 months at BILO. For some reason, curly parsley is also hard to find here in NC. I will definitely grow windowsill parsley & cilantro when I have my own apt. Was very happy to see American (dwarf curly) parsley at Target for my tabouli. Until I checked the label and saw it came from Mexico. They also had the Chipotle Tobasco I was looking for that BILO didn't have, which I will get the next time I have a couopon. On a clearance rack in back which I stumbled upon while scouting the aisles for bulgur wheat to make tabouli, I found boxes of holiday Celestial Seasonings tea for $1.18, and Ghirardelli dark choc peppermint bark for $1. Really good specials. Thumbs up on Target groceries and specials, except for the parsley.

I'll go online to corporate and ask Target to carry dwarf curly parsley grown in the US. Mexico and China are the world's largest buyers of chemicals, including those banned by other countries as unsafe, which they import and then spray on their crops. Parsley and cilantro already have issues anyway, re, EWG's list, and should be organic or homegrown if possible. NOT conventional. THEN they are super foods that are super duper healthy for you, detoxifier, anti-cancer, etc. But Mexican parsley is at the worst end of the spectrum.

Got home last night from the piddly pay job, and was soooooo glad the work week there is over. De-iced the car and then drove carefully, but the main roads were good; very thankful to arrive home safely through the ice, and to be done with the piddly pay job. I work there because it is the only job I can get, for now.

How was your week? What's on tap for your upcoming week?

    We don't have a target here. The closest one is around 50 miles.

    I am sick so I will spend my week trying to get better. I hope things improve quickly.
