A new month means new coupons, and Coupons.com currently has some good ones, like $1/2 Dixie paper plates. There’s a deal at Vons/Pavilions/Safeway where if you buy $15 of selected paper products, you’ll receive a catalina coupon for $5 off your next purchase. The value packs of Dixie plates are $3.99, so buy four, use two $1/2 coupons, pay $13 out of pocket and get a $5 catalina back. That’s like paying $2 per package, or 4 cents per plate, which is a good deal in my price book. Links via Logical Media
Aquaphoris part of Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program with a 30% discount instead of 15%. That brings the price of a 14-oz jar to $9.35 each and a 3-oz tube to $4.90. Aquaphor is great for babies with sensitive skin, and I always had some on hand for the kids’ infant days. It’s really easy to cancel a Subscribe & Save subscription by going to the “Your Account” link at the top right of any page on Amazon and then to “Manage Subscribe & Save Items” in the orders section.

I don’t think the kids will be too excited about this, but Cheap Healthy Good’s recipe for Greek Antipasto Pita sounds perfect for a hot summer day. I might add in some grilled or shredded chicken, and maybe if I kept some chicken out and gave it to the kids with just the pita, they’d eat it.

Moneywise Moms shares how she’s keeping sane this summer with a routine. I keep thinking about how weird it’s going to be to be tied to the academic calendar starting this fall when Alex starts kindergarten.
At readers’ request, the LA Times has a rice pudding recipe from the Lazy Ox Canteen. I had lunch there recently and thought it was just okay. Maybe if I’d had the rice pudding, I’d want to return.
