Thrifty Chicken Ziti

I made this Sunday evening for dinner. It made a BIG casserole dish full and we ate it for 3 days . It is delicious, even reheated:)

2 chicken breasts-boiled (about $2)
1 box penne pasta-boiled til tender (.50 w/ coupon)
1 jar Ragu (I used the organic Garden Veggie variety) (.60 w/ coupon)
1 small package mozzerella cheese ($2)

Mix all ingredients together, saving 1/4 - 1/2 cup cheese to sprinkle on top. Bake @ 350 for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Eat and enjoy:)
My sister came over today and ate our leftovers and loved it!!!! She said she doesnt typically like ziti reheated but it was delicious:)
(BTW this fed 2 adults and 1 toddler for 3 meals-dh has seconds-and another adult for one meal)

WARNING on Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel...PLEASE READ

ok i know a bunch of us bought this as part of the Scrubbing Bubbles RR deal at Walgreens last week so im posting here.
We tested all our new Scrubbing bubbles products yesterday by cleaning the bathrooms...and placed the gel discs in the toilets w/ 2 in the main bathroom. well... today dd was pottying by the main potty and saw the blue discs in the big potty. She decided to check them out and reached in the potty and pulled them off. I went to check on here and she had placed herself in time out. But i couldnt figure out where the "cleaner" smell was coming from. a few minutes later it hit me. She was immediately washed off and we made her drink milk and called poison control. Scrubbing Bubbles did not put active ingredients anywhere on this box or online where PC could find. DD is fine she did not seem to ingest any and her skin is not irritated but BE CAREFUL if you plan to use this stuff and have toddlers:2cents: Since we cant figure out whats in it we are tossing ours. Just be careful, each gel disc stays in the toilet for 7 days. so if you use it, keep an eye on your toddler or keep the door closed or locked. i can only imagine what would happen if someone ate it:(

I posted deals here.


Transaction 1:
4 boxes Poptarts
8 boxes Rice Krispies treats

I forgot my .50/1 target coupons for the Pop Tarts:( but it was still a good deal.

Pd. $21.xx OOP, received $15 in GC and will send in for the 10 Kellogg's rebate:)

so a $3.xx money maker!!!

Transaction 2:
4 Keebler cookies
2 Scoobie Snacks(dd's favorite)

total after coupons $10.15
used 2-$5 GC from previous transaction, paid .15 OOP

Rice Crispies/ Pop Tart Money Maker at Target

This week Pop Tarts, Special K bars, Rice Crispie treats and select Keebler cookies are 4/$9 at Target. AND you get a $5 GC when you purchase 4 items. If you still have some coupons left from the back to school insert from August($1/2 for pop tarts, rice krispies, Keebler and special K bars) you end up paying $7 for 4 items and get back a $5 GC. If you purchase pop tarts there is also a .50/1 target coupon available online. So you will pay $5 for 4 and get a $5 GC back!!!!
To make the deal a little sweeter there was also a Kellogg's rebate form in the back to school insert. Buy 10 items get $10 rebate by mail!!!! You could make up to $10 on this!!!!

Pop Tart Deal:

buy 12 boxes pop tarts(12 count big boxes!!)

use 6-$1/2 pop tart coupons from insert(available on eBay also)
use 12-.50/1 Target coupons.
