Ice Cream on the Brain


Quick! Before the kids get home! Which one should I eat first?
So here's the deal I found today... and it ends tomorrow, thank God! There's a manufacturer's coupon in the Marsh circular (the print ad that's piled up by the door of the store) for Haagen-Daz, Buy 2, Get a Free Gelato, up to $3.50. The Haagen-Daz is $3.99 at Marsh this "week" (the grocery store week that ends 3/20/13) so if you did the deal there, it would be $3.99 + $3.99 + $3.99 - $3.50 = $8.47.

I found a printable Target coupon for $1 off 2 Haagen-Daz. It's a Target coupon so you can stack it with a manufacturer's coupon. The Haagen-Daz is $3.54 at Target. So, first stop Marsh, grab some circulars. Next stop Target, get the ice cream and use both coupons.

$3.54 + $3.54 + $3.54 - $1 - $3.50 = $6.12
That's $2.04 each, sounds good to me!
I tried the Salted Caramel Truffle. Heavenly!
 I dropped the kids off at tumbling and dance and hit Target again for 3 more cartons.

OK, I actually did buy more than just ice cream. I've been trying out the Campbell's Go Soups. They are $2.49 at Target. There is a Target printable for $1.00 as well as a $1.00 manufacturer's printable coupon at coupons.com, making them $0.49. So far, my family has tried:

Spicy Chorizo and Pulled Chicken with Black Beans - I loved it; too spicy for everyone else
Coconut Curry with Chicken and Shitake Mushrooms - Sweet but good, per my husband who ate
                                                                                          the whole bag by himself

Today I got: Creamy Red Pepper with Smoked Gouda
                     Chicken and Quinoa with Poblano Chilies

Target also has the Hormel Compleats on sale for $1.66 and there is a $1.00 printable at coupons.com. The kids like these for grab-and-go dinners on busy nights.

So here's my total Target take for the day


So ... my younger daughter comes home from school and found the Haagen-Daz, eats some, then tried to hide it WAAAAY back in the freezer.

She doesn't know there's more in the basement.

So what's your favorite kind of ice cream?
Should I get more ice cream tomorrow?
Have you tried a Go Soup yet?

I got a baby workout in today. 30 minutes on the bike, 8.46 miles, 81 rpm.


  1. Love the Go Soup!!! I have been getting one every trip to Target!!! The spicy one is just right for me!!!!

    Great pictures and great blog!!!

  2. And yes, you should get some more ice cream tomorrow. You work it off easily!!!

  3. Salted Caramel sounds heavenly! I won't buy any of it....because then I would eat it all! I haven't tried the soup. Sounds good! By the way my favorite ice cream is homemade peanut butter and chocolate...ALWAYS! :)
