Following Kimberly-Clark, P&G raises U.S. Pampers, Bounty and Charmin prices

Think the only place that rising energy prices affect you is at the pump?   Think again.

"Procter & Gamble Co confirmed on Monday that it is raising prices on Pampers diapers and wipes, Bounty paper towels and Charmin toilet paper in the United States, as it faces soaring costs for energy and materials.  The world's largest household products manufacturer said the average list price increases are 7 percent on Pampers diapers, 3 percent on Pampers wipes and 5 percent on both Bounty and Charmin paper goods.  The list price increases were announced to retailers last week. Prices that shoppers see are ultimately set by stores.  The latest moves come about a month after P&G announced plans to raise U.S. detergent prices 4.5 percent.  Rival Kimberly-Clark Corp said on Monday that materials, energy and transportation are set to cost more than twice as much as it expected this year.  It already announced price increases on Huggies diapers, wipes, training pants and some toilet paper in March."

What this means to us, dear readers, is that couponing, sales, deals, stacking discounts, and stockpiling are going to become more important than ever, as we struggle to supply and support our families in the face of this still-horrible economy.  Keep the faith though.  That's what this blog is all about.

Another great resource about stockpiling and food storage

Stockpiling, that is, buying quantities of items that you can get for a very low price or for free, is a tricky business. It's hard to determine what items you can store, how to properly store them, and for how long. If you buy six bottles of a favorite name-brand barbecue sauce, normally $2.50 each, for $0.25 (they are on sale and you have stacked coupons), you have saved $13.50. If those six bottles of barbecue sauce go rancid because you've stored them in a hot, un-air-conditioned garage, or because they expired last year, you have wasted $1.50, plus the effort to clip the coupons, shop for the item, etc.

I've posted before, here and here, about stockpiling and storage. Just to recap, here are three great resources that talk about how long you can store food and drug items, and how to properly store them:

Here's another good resource, this time on freezing and refrigerating foods. It's from Ziploc, and it's a handy two-page printout that summarizes some conclusions about the shelf-life of various foods from the Food and Drug Administration as well as the Federal Government's Food Safety site.  I've printed it out and hung it up on the side of my fridge.

What to do with all your leftover Passover matzoh meal, cake meal and potato starch

The greatest "crime" against frugality isn't overspending; it's wasting.  Every year, I have leftover Passover goods that I can't put away for next year, either because they're perishable or open boxes/cannisters.  No matter how well I plan, each year I always seem to be stuck with open boxes of the Three Ghosts of Passover Past:  matzoh meal, cake meal and potato starch. So what do you do with this stuff?  Here are some ideas on how to make use of those leftover items (and I'd greatly appreciate you sharing your ideas in the comments below!).  I hate wasting food.  

Matzoh meal:  I make "kneidlach" or matzoh balls year-round, especially in the winter.  I've found the best recipe is the one right on the back of the Streit's box, but here's one if you don't already have a favorite. I also combine matzoh meal with basil, garlic powder, onion powder, sesame seeds, and paprika, and I store it in a glass jar, for an interesting twist on breading for chicken. Sometimes I use this mixture in combination with corn flake crumbs or bread crumbs.

Cake meal:  Passover cake meal is really very finely ground matzoh meal.  You can use cake meal in nearly any recipe that calls for flour.  I find that it doesn't work so well in regular baking, unless you want that particular "Passover taste" in your year-round pastries.  I use it as a flour substitute in breading chicken, onion rings and crudite, and as a thickener in some stew recipes.  As with matzoh meal, I sometimes combine it with flour.  I've also used it as a meat extender in meatloaf, stuffed cabbage, and meatballs.

Potato starch:  You can easily swap in potato starch for any recipe that require corn starch.  I primarily use it as a soup or gravy thickener.  My Celiac/gluten-free friends swear by it as a great flour substitute in any year-round recipe.

What other products did you "get stuck with" this year, and how are you planning on making use of them?  Any other great ideas for the matzoh meal, cake meal and potato starch?

Wrapping up your frugal Passover

We just put away the last Passover pan and did the big "switcharoo" back to our regular kitchen stuff.  Whew!  What a wonderful holiday we had!  Fantastic guests, interesting company at meals, non-stop food, great conversation, meaningful seders, all-in-all a beautiful holiday.

If you've followed my series on How to Shop for Passover on a Budget, here, here and here, guest posted on the wonderful superblogs, Kosher on a Budget and Orthonomics, you'll remember that making sure next year's Passover is a frugal one starts NOW.  Here's what you can do this week to set the stage for next year.

  1. When you put away your Passover stuff, take inventory:  what needs to be replaced?  Is that crockpot liner cracked?  Is that urn on its last legs?  Did service for 8 really cut it for the number of guests you had this year, or would you have preferred service for 12?  Did your kids break a wineglass or two?  Is it time to upgrade your frying pans to stainless steel?  Make a list of everything that needs to be replaced and then, separately, a wishlist of new things you'd like to have.  Don't pack away the stuff that must be replaced.  Throw it out or better yet, freecycle it.  You now have a year to find yourself a great bargain on that crockpot, urn, etc.  (And as long as you keep reading this blog, you will!)
  2. Get out your master list of Pesach supplies and make your final notes.  I know this will slow down the packing-up some, but it will be well-worth it in the long run. Next year, you'll know instantly that you need more garlic powder, but have stockpiled three paprikas because they were on sale.  Stockpile your Passover dry goods and cans carefully.  Don't pack up any open boxes unless you have sealed them up very carefully and guarded against insects and other critters.  There is nothing worse than opening up a box of potato starch and finding it crawling with ants! I highly recommend storing closed boxes of matzoh meal, cake meal and potato starch in the back of your garage/basement freezer, if you have the room.  For information on what you can and cannot stockpile, visit StillTasty.com.  Mark the year 2011 on things you bought this year with a sharpie, so you'll have an idea how old everything is, especially the cans.
  3. This week, the clearance sales start on Passover goods.  Ask your friends to keep an eye out and let you know what specials they're seeing.  It's a bit of a gamble, but if you wait just long enough, you'll see stockpile-able goods on sale for less than a dollar each....then strike while the iron is hot!  Last year, I scored matzoh meal for $0.25 and bought a dozen boxes.  (I also use this during the year to make matzoh balls.)  Keep checking the stores for unadvertised specials.  You can score some amazing deals on Passover goods in the week or two immediately following Passover.

That's it, fellow Cheapskates.  Here's hoping you had a very happy, kosher, frugal Passover.  Remember, next Passover is only a year away!

    Freegal: free, LEGAL, downloadable mp3s at your public library

    While it's relatively easy to snag deals on Itune gift cards, I may never get one again.  I recently started (legally) downloading free popular music using Freegal at my local Denver Public Library.  Is Freegal available at your library?

    Freegal is a downloadable music service, like iTunes, available from public libraries all over the United States. All you need is your library card number and PIN to log in. Iit offers hundreds of thousands of songs in mp3 format, playable and storable on any PC, Mac, or mp3 player including Ipods, more than a hundred genres of music, and more than fifty record labels, including access to the Sony Music Entertainment catalog,. No special software is needed to use the service, and there are no digital rights management restrictions.  That's right, the mp3 downloads are actually DRM free!

    There are limits, and it varies by library.  Here in Denver, you can download up to three tracks per week (the new week starts Sunday night).  Each song has a sample clip you can preview before you download. The library also has a weekly limit.  If the library runs out of downloads for the week, you can queue up for your requested song on to a wishlist (Amazon-style).

    Just another reason that belonging and actively using your public library is an effortless money-saving no-brainer.

    Have you been using Freegal at your public library?

    There are tons of new coupons on Coupons.com today, but one of my personal favorites is back up: the $1/1 on Reach dental floss (click on Personal Care on the left side to find the coupon quickly). Reach dental floss routinely sells at Target for $0.99, making this product free with coupon. Print out two of these coupons using your back button.

    Honestly, because of this coupon, I haven't paid a cent for a package of dental floss for the last two years.
