Easy Homemade Applesauce – crockpot recipe

When the twins were young we really went through the applesauce. I quickly figured out how to save some money on applesauce and learned through experimenting my families favorite way for me to make homemade applesauce. Now, I use the applesauce on our oatmeal, topped on yogurt with chopped nuts and I even add it to our fruit smoothies for extra flavor! And of course, just plain with a bit more cinnamon sprinkled on top.

Using the crockpot seems to be the easiest way for me to make it because I can walk away and it cooks up perfectly every time. Right now Honey Crisp apples are on sale and I ordered a case from Bountiful Baskets.

If you just don’t want to make homemade applesauce, grab an applesauce coupon from the Free Coupon Database to get a better deal at the store.

Tip Resouce Dryer sheets! Even after they have gone through the dryer they have just enough freshness left to still be put to use.  Just place one in the bottom of a clean garbage can, then put in your plastic liner.


This helps me SO much on the days when I am dragging having a hard time with motivation. Set a timer at 10-15 minutes intervals.  Do as much focused work as possible during that time.  It works wonders in helping to stay focused and work quickly.   I’m motivated and sprinting through the work efficiently knowing the limited time I have to get the task done.  Plus, it makes it seem more like a game to “beat the clock”.    This works wonders for me maybe it will work for you.  I find my work gets completed quicker and I can move onto what I really want to do.

Warehouse Stores – Pros and Cons

What You Should OR Should Not Buy at Warehouse Stores
by Kelly Gibb  of TLC’s Extreme Couponing
I have a Costco about 5 minutes from my house, yet once I started couponing, I’ve gone there less and less.  It’s a fantastic resource for people with large families who don’t want to take the time to sort out deals and clip coupons.  However, if you look at how much you’re spending at Costco, you would see that you can save a lot of money buying items somewhere else.  Plus, warehouse stores don’t accept coupons (except for ones that they send out), which makes it difficult to save the maximum amount of money.  And to top it all off, you have to pay $30+ in membership fees!  Please note that this article is entirely my opinion, you are free to take it or leave it! 🙂

Items I would never buy at warehouse stores:

Well, this list includes pretty much anything I can find a coupon for.  Where I really want to stress though is toiletries.  You can ALWAYS find free shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, razors, and other items at drug stores.  That 5 pound bottle of shampoo may be a good deal, but when you can get it for free, any other price is too much!

One of my mother’s favorite deals is on steak sauce.  She used to buy the giant bottles at Costco, until she came across a coupon for $1 off any size bottle.  She then bought the little tiny bottles of steak sauce that are priced around $1.25.  Buying several of the smaller bottles was a much better deal than buying one giant bottle simply because she could use a coupon on each bottle, and now she is well-stocked on steak sauce!

Items I would buy at warehouse stores:

Now, I don’t know about you, but I am never able to find this mysterious deal that gets you free toilet paper.  If I can’t find a good enough deal on toilet paper, then that is something I am willing to pick up at warehouse stores.  My family is big on Charmin, and all I ever get in the paper is a coupon for 25 cents off.  I know that I’d save more going to Costco and not using the coupon than going to somewhere like Target where the price is more, but I could use my little 25 cents off coupon.  The same goes for paper towels, too.  The other items in this list include anything that doesn’t regularly have coupons.  I’m talking about produce, meat, and those delicious muffins, just to name a few.

I think the main thing to consider when shopping at a warehouse store is this: do you save enough money to justify the cost of membership?  For me personally, once I started couponing, I didn’t go to Coscto often enough to make it worth it, so I ditched my membership, and I haven’t looked back once!
