-tuna sandwiches with lettuce and pickles
-grilled tuna sandwiches yum!
-a recipe I LOVE which is appropriately named "fabulous tuna pasta salad"!! (shall I change the name to "fabulESS tuna pasta salad"?)
-when my baby is old enough, he can have some tuna while he sits in his high chair!

My ALL TIME FAVORITE way to use tuna is miracle whip, tuna, celery, and original wheat thins!! I literally eat a whole box of wheat thins! YUMMY!!

Sara said...

Number 3- I love making homemade tuna pasta salad. And also using the creamy brocoli tuna helper-cold and putting it on crackers. Which I got the tuna helpers really cheap using coupon plus doublers. And eating them on ritz crackers I got for free with coupons!

Sara

Sara
sf_me@hotmail.com

Sara S. said...

Here's how I'll use my tuna. Tuna melts, baby. Toast some bread, throw on some tuna, melt a bit of cheese. Mmmm...delicious. Also, easy for some protein on salad. The best part is--no can openers and no draining icky tuna juice!

Sara S. said...

I found your blog through a good friend of mine Paula who emails me about fabulous deals from time to time. I'm so glad she did, because you guys have saved me time and money!

Sara said...

Sara said...

This makes 9! I found this blog while searching for coupons or anything about them back in February after wanting to try coupons and watching an Oprah show on frugal living that gave me the final nudge I needed!

Sara said...

And Final number 10!!!! Okay, I said I was only doing nine, but i figured I got through all of those, and how hard can twitter be right? So I am now following you on twitter and twittered about the blog contest! I am so twitterpated right now! LOL! and tired....
Forgot to put me email with entry #9, but with my 9 other entries, I think you know my email by now. Just in case its sf_me@hotmail.com!!!

Sara
p.s. I reaaaallllly want these coupons! The funny part is, if I win, my hubby gets to do it because I will be out for a week starting tomorrow! Hehe!

Starnes fam said...

I would give the tuna to my hubby to put on salad so he can PACK HIS OWN LUNCH for awhile!

Christy said...

I am new to couponing and love your blog! As a newbie it can be overwhelming to get started, but I have found following your advice and posts makes it easy and less intimidating! Thanks for taking the time to share your secrets and teach us all how to save money, and feed our families for little to nothing! I am addicted and think couponing is one of the healthiest addictions you can have! I am a single mom and work outside the home full time, so the only way I can even coupon sucessfully is to follow your blog so I can maximize my time and get to the shopping!!

the screwface shabba said...

Having moved last year to the Boise area I was kind of lost on where to find good deals. While surfing the internet I found this site. It's been such a great resource for me. I now don't have to spend hours working on finding deals. Thank you so much!

Ellas Mom said...

I love your blog because I am very new to couponing and as many others have said it's overwhelming. I love that your blog is easy to read and makes things make sense to me! Thanks!

Ellas Mom said...

What would I do with the tuna!? Oh this is easy. My mom is losing her job in a month and I am trying to do everything possible to get her set including helping her stock her pantry. Tuna is not only easy it's healthy!

J said...

Carolee said...

How did I find your blog? It was providence. (oh, and Cathy told me about it when it was brand new!)

Carolee said...

I really can't choose one favorite thing about the blog. I guess I use it the most to help me with my grocery shopping (cutting my grocery bill), but I also love the givaways (maybe I'll win one sometime) and the freebie info! And it's so dang cute!

Eric & Sarita said...

Shannon said...

I plan on useing my tuna the way 90% of use do, making sandwiches. With 5 kids and a hubby food gets gobbled up I don't need to get fancy. Thanks for the chance to win.

Nikki said...

I love tuna. I make sandwiches, tuna casserole, and put it over my salads.

Amber said...

I will use the tuna to make pasta. What you do is put tuna, garlic, and olive oil in a pan and let it simmer together for a few minutes. Then add tomato sauce and cook the sauce. Mix it with cooked spaghetti noodles. If it doesn't sound good, well, that's what I thought but when I tried it I really liked it.

Amber said...

My favorite thing about your blog is that you are totally honest, totally real people. I was one of the people chatting with everyone for a few hours that night we were waiting for ON to pop up and I realized (not that I didn't know before, but you know what I mean) that you are real people, fun people, and people trying to help each other. I love that you had us help Crissie win her bike. I never got the doubles from her, but how amazing that she did that for people she's never met. I love that the people who visit this blog are like that. And the people who make it of course! THANKS!!

Amber said...

I truly don't know which blog it was from, but when I started couponing I looked at a million of them. Probably actually about 30 of them. I linked to yours from a button on someone else's.

andrea.roche said...

I'd use the tuna for tuna casserole! How many days can my family stand it?

andrea.roche said...

Found your site thru a friend of mine!

andrea.roche said...

My favorite thing about this blog is that you have some different features such as the yard sale listings. Keeps it interesting rather than reading the same deals listed as on every other coupon blog.

andrea.roche said...

I'm a follower!

I subscribe!

my favorite thing about your blog is that it is local. I love getting the latest scoop on all of the fabuless finds at our local stores!

and I love the yard sale listings!

Connie said...

I have not been lucky enough to snag any of these fabuless tuna coupons so hopefully, if I win, I will use the tuna to make lunch and dinner for my kids. They love tuna fish (my husband not so much).

samiamjewelry said...

My husband won't eat any fish except tuna. Kinda silly I think.

Connie said...

I added your button to my blog!!!

samiamjewelry said...

I found this site from the krazy coupon lady blog.

samiamjewelry said...

I would make tuna sandwiches, tuna casserole and tuna tacos if I win the coupons.

I just started following you like yesterday! Good timing me.:)

Following you on Twitter...

Brazen Hussey's said...

What would I do with all that tuna? Well, I have 6 kids that I homeschool and one on the way. Sooo, it would be great for a variety of lunches: Tuna sands; Tuna salad; snack lunch (my kids fave for some reason. I just set a whole bunch of different things on a platter and they take what they want. Weird but they like it.); tuna casserole; quick protein for me during pregnancy!

I honestly don't think it will last that long in my house. :)

Brazen Hussey's said...

I found your site through my sister-in-law Mariah who already follows you.

Brazen Hussey's said...

One thing that I LOVE about your site, is that it is local. It is great to read blogs about deals, but frustrating when you head to the store and they are not offering those same deals in your area. Shopping time for me has to be done very quickly. I hate to waste time doing all the research only to come up empty handed. That isn't a problem with your blog.

Brazen Hussey's said...

Emailed a friend and CC'd ya...

Brandy said...

One idea for tuna is my sister's favorite sandwich. It's an open face sandwich - Bread, Tuna (with mayo and pickles mixed in) then top with lettuce, tomato and cheese. Pop in the broiler until the cheese is melted. YUMM!

Brandy said...

I found you through a friend of mine from church - she suggested I check out the site since you were local and there is always such great deals posted here!

Brandy said...

I just became a FAN on facebook!!! :o)

Brandy said...

My favorite thing about your website is all the free activites/goodies you post about that are local to Boise. (Krispy Kreme, A & W, Golden Spoon.. ETC!) Thanks for staying on top of the best deals in town!

Helen said...

I love how you break it down so us newbies can figure out how you save all that money.

ABC Momma said...

I'm such a fan!

Libby said...

Hi. one way i recently saw that i am going to try was seen on a blog. It's creamed tuna over either bisquits or toast. My mom used to make it but i had forgotten all about it. Then of course the old standby of tuna on ritz crackers. Another way we ate it growing up was to take an english muffin and half it. Put them on a cookie sheet and spread with tuna, then add a thick slice of tomatoe and cover with a slice of cheddar cheese and put in the oven until cheese melts= yum
My email is budgetbailout@comcast.net thank you

Brandy said...

OK - I subscribed to your FAB FEED as well! (Can you tell I want to win some tuna?!!)
