Everyone loves a bargain...or two! I'm a huge advocate for shopping only when there are discounts or coupons, searching out amazing deals and gloat when I find great bargains! So this week at the shops, we found:
Vetta Pasta 375-500g varieties at Coles for $1 each. If you shop like me, you'd have 12 packets of pasta in your shopping trolley, saving you a grand total of $12! These little mini dinosaurs are so cute, they're a big hit with Lachie and his friends at playgroup. They also come in tiny teddy shapes.
Keep a bottle or two of tomato base pasta sauces in your pantry for a quick weekday dinner. Also at Coles, it's 2 for $3.
Brown 400g of beef mince. Add 2 medium brown onions, chopped and 2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped. Saute until tender. Chop 3 stalks of celery, 2 carrots and 2 medium tomatoes (or if you prefer, canned tomatoes). Throw veggies in. Stir in sauce and optional 1 cup of dry white wine. Simmer for 20 minutes. Serve with basil or herbs from the garden and grated parmesan.
These days, online shopping has become a craze with more and more retailers offering free shipping or huge discounts. A plus to shopping online are bonuses you get from signing up to certain websites. My favourite is Borders. Sign up to their shortlist email and get their weekly newsletter plus online coupons. This week you get 50% off all children's books at Borders.
RRP $16.95. We got this today for $8.50.
Maisy Buggy Board book for L2. It has a little ring and can be attached to the pram. RRP$7.95. Got it for $3.95.

Happy shopping! You'll have to spend to save! heheheheheh.....
