This week I walked out of CVS with my husband’s favorite toothpaste and shaving gel for $.54! In fact, I only had to pay the $.54 for tax since you can’t use extrabucks to cover tax.

Do you want to see how I saved $8.68? Then head over to Koupon Karen where she will show you. She was so proud of me.

Before I forget, one of the best tips I have learned from Karen is that you can scan your CVS card up to 3 times in a row/per day at the kiosk! It is true. I used to simply scan it once and walk away. If I did that Tuesday, I would not have gotten the $1 the toothpaste coupon.

Onto what I made with my savings this week: Stop and Shop had the following items on sale and once broken down for the recipe for 4, it costs approximately $6.25 for 4 servings -> $1.56 per person
a. chicken breasts: $1.99/lb.
b. 2 cups of spaghetti sauce from barilla on sale = $2.00
c. 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese: buy sargento on sale $1.25
d. Use bread crumbs from the pantry, flour, an egg and parmesan I already had = guessing ~$1.00

Serve with a vegetable and some whole grain pasta.

This looks sooooo satisfying!

That looks amazing and I’m really impressed by how inexpensive it is! I keep seeing chia seeds everywhere lately… do they add any flavor to the dish, or is a way to pump the nutrients in the dish?

Oh it was – in fact, kids asked for it again tonight so made chicken parm sandwiches. Slurp.

Hi Patsy – they do not add flavor but do add fiber and antioxidants. I also wanted to use them to make sure I had a crispy crust since I as baking and not frying. How are you?

I haven’t had chicken parm in so long. I love taking tradition recipes that call for frying and baking them instead. Takes away a lot of the guilt and they’re still so tasty.
