US Bakery Items at S&R

Rainy season means #walangpasok days for our kids! Don’t be caught empty handed in the pantry, especially with very hungry kids. Stock up this weekend with your favorite S&R Bakery Items, they are discounted until July 31 only!

Did you know? S&R’s baked goods such as US Muffins, US Loaf Breads, and more are made with US ingredients. That’s what gives them a unique & quality flavor that you’d be proud to serve friends & family. In fact, when I bring out S&R baked goodies I always get a long “wow~” from my guests!

Many people think these quality and best tasting baked treats from S&R are expensive but it’s not, especially when you choose deal items like me :) I like buying what’s on sale and that way, I get to try different flavors.

Mommy Lace Tip: Store your S&R bakery items in the refrigerator. They have best by dates but when stored and handled properly, can last longer for days. Don’t be afraid to stock up while they’re on sale.

Imported Treats made in America

My husband spotted these Twinkies. They are probably one of America’s favorite snacks and one we’ve heard/seen so many times in US TV series and movies! We’re excited to try these Twinkies and now’s the right time because they’re on Buy 1 Take 1 promo at S&R. It’s packaging is also great as school baon for our son.

Do you also try imported ice cream at S&R? It’s one of our latest discoveries since Blue Bunny Ice Cream was also on Buy 1 Take 1 a few months ago. This July, North Star Ice Cream which has a Penguin on its packaging is on sale! Sayang because these were on Buy 1 Take 1 a few days ago, but for those of us who missed this deal, these North Star Ice Cream Bars is still on sale with reduced price :D

 

Our son will love this. He is a fan of YouTube kid vloggers in the US who also try different ice cream flavors. Para iba naman! It’ll also be one of the highlights of our weekend. This pack contains enough for the whole family to try.

Naked Crepes is also still on sale. This is great if you have leftover icecream and want to serve a fancy crepe with bananas or other fruits + whipped cream. Yup, it’s that easy to make a crepe with a ready made crepe like this!

Imported US Brand Pots & Pans for your Kitchen

A lot of moms dream of brand new pots and pans that will motivate them to cook more in the kitchen. We’ve also seen how new & modern pans are so much easier to cook with and clean! Now’s our chance to buy the pots & pans of our dreams plus, they’re all branded and on sale at S&R!

 

I like the Food Network Aluminum Cookware 10 pc set

Another option is the Bella Non-Stick Hard Anodized Aluminum that also contains 10 pcs. of cookware. Wow!

I’ve been in and out of S&R so many times but it’s only now that I spent a lot of time in this section. Buti nalang, I follow them on Facebook where I see deals like this.

While I was busy with the pots & pans, I spotted my husband fantasizing with this Deli Chef Toaster. He says he likes this kind of toaster and it’s also on Buy 1 Take 1.

US Brand, Imported Bed Sheet, Blankets, Comforters, Pillow Case Set

If you’ve been waiting for a sale in US made and US brand bed sheets, comforters, and pillow cases – here it is. The bedding sets are on S&R’s isles waiting for shoppers to grab them with a Buy 1 Take 1 deal! I took photos of what the bedding look like:

Buy 1 Take 1 Claire Complete Set of reversible comforter, pillow shams, sheet set, and bedskirt

They’re so beautiful and cozy. Imported bed sheets and comforters are a real investment for your home. They let you sleep well and they last very long because of its US quality.

England Quilt Collection Quiltset Buy 1 Take 1

You can easily tell an imported bedsheet and comforter from an ordinary one just by looking. If you have extra money, I recommend buying this for your bedroom and treat yourself to a good night’s sleep.

Buy 1 Take 1  8pc. Comforter Set in Turquoise & Lime

Also, you can get two for the price of just one right now at S&R!

This is one of the best visits we made at S&R. Me and my husband felt like we’re on a date but it’s really because of all the deals we got and saved money with. Some of the items we bought were things we dreamt of for a long time but held of purchasing. It felt like Christmas when we saw most of them are on sale now on S&R.

Mommy Lace tip: These deals are until this weekend only, July 31 so please hurry and visit your nearest S&R to make these sulit buys for your whole family.

Lastly, our favorite Starbucks Bottled Drinks are cheaper at S&R. Cheers to a successful shopping trip!

NEW S&R Roaster’s Best Marinated Chicken cooks in 30 minutes

With our kids back to school, mothers like me find ourselves in the kitchen for longer hours. There’s just so many meals and snacks to plan and prepare. My son is in gradeschool and I need to feed him breakfast and lunch before class, I also have to prepare snacks for recess, then another snack when he returns, and the family dinner. Edi wow!

Aside from conscious planning, meal preparation, and lots of Ziploc freezing – here’s a new #KitchenHack for us moms! It’ll help save us some time from planning, preparation, and cooking – and I found it at S&R. It’s called the S&R Roaster’s Best Marinated Chicken Cut-Ups.

Here they are in my freezer and ever since, I have reduced my trips to the supermarket. I also like how my freezer looks very organized with all my stock from S&R.

Sealed in Freshness, leak-proof seal, and anti-freezer burn packaging.

As you can see, I kind of like Bounty Fresh because I also have their Chicken Nuggets and Chicken Breast Teriyaki – also available at S&R. I only stock few pork products because of the price and the shortage. Chicken can have different flavors while it is also healthy, economical, and easy to cook.

REVIEW: S&R Roaster’s Best Marinated Chicken

This pre-marinated chicken cut ups that are exclusively available at S&R comes in 4 different flavors: Lemongrass, Butter Garlic, Classic Roast and Hot n’ Spicy. My recommendation is the Butter Garlic followed by the Hot n’ Spicy marinade.

Roaster’s Best are available in different cuts but I prefer the breast and wings combination. If your kids like drumstick, that’s also available.

Preparation – it’s very easy to prepare, just take it out from the freezer to that at least an hour before you cook it. This frees up a lot of time for moms to do other things such as helping with homework or dressing the kids up for school.

Cooking Method – S&R’s Roaster’s Best chicken can be fried or cooked via turbo broiler/roaster. I use my turbo broiler which is a plug and use gadget that’s very convenient. Roaster’s Best packaging includes instructions and it’s 15 minutes per side at around 225 C’.

I can cook a lot of chicken pieces in just 30 minutes!

Quality and Taste – first of all I am surprised how Roaster’s Best chicken has that perfect chicken skin that doesn’t tear up! I think these are the most beautiful chicken I have ever roasted. As long as you follow the prescribed time and temperature setting, you will ALWAYS end up with golden and juicy chicken with the best chicken skin ever!

I’ve cooked two packages of Roaster’s Best already, here’s a photo of the hot and spicy variant that I prepared for my husband and I. It’s as perfect as the Garlic Butter Roasted Chicken plus, the taste and excitement of flavors is restaurant quality.

Perfect for date night at home!

Mommy Lace Tip: You can cook 1 package/tray of Roaster’s Best and just Ziploc, refrigerate to serve and reheat for future meals or packed lunch. This has saved me a lot of time and money. If you want to keep it longer, you can freeze the roasted chicken cut-ups too. In my experience, the taste doesn’t change at all and I can tell the chicken is very fresh because it doesn’t easily spoil. The meat is so tender and juicy, you won’t regret serving it to family, friends, and house guests.

I also like serving it with atsara for the full roasted chicken experience.

I’m already planning a picnic but this time, I’d like to try doing a barbecue with the Lemongrass variant.

Mommy, I hope you try the S&R Roaster’s Best Chicken by Bounty Fresh too. It’ll make your life easier, at least for select days when you choose to serve this for your family.

Happy cooking and good luck in your kitchen endeavors, Mommy!

Make Everyday Mother’s Day with S&R

Mommy, do you wish it’s always mother’s day and that you can enjoy more time for yourself? Don’t wait for next year’s mother’s day celebration. Here are some tips on how you can have extra time for yourself with the help of these S&R Everyday Finds! I found all of these deals at S&R Imus this month.

1. Save time and money in the kitchen – when you spend less time in the kitchen, you have more time for yourself and your family. I like cooking from scratch but like you, there are days when everyone’s in a hurry. Maybe someone woke up late, did not turn up, or someone unexpectedly shows up – or you’re not feeling well.

Montana Embotido by 3’s P218.85

Nancy’s Quiche P169

Krusteze Mini Pancakes P139.00

I learned to keep and take advantage of “emergency prepared meals”. S&R exposed me to frozen meals that can save me time, money, and sanity when I need a meal fast. It’s still a lot cheaper than calling fast food delivery and keeps very well in the freezer. There are frozen and ready to cook items that can be served for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner.

White Castle Cheeseburger P249

Crepini Naked Crepes P399

Do you also watch money saving tips on YouTube? If you do, you must have heard of slow cookers that American families would normally have. Busy moms use this to come home to a slow cooked dish that’s ready to serve to the family. I always thought slow cookers were not available here and that they’d be expensive. But look what I found on S&R:

Deli Chef Slow Cooker P2,000

I wanted to buy this but I’d like to search for slow cooker recipes first. I’m sure if I do get this, it’ll save me a lot of money and stress in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, I wish I can cook all day but that’s impossible nowadays.

By the way, if you are moving to a new home and need a new convection oven you can get 2 for the price of 1 or buy 1 take 1 convection oven at S&R.

Deli Chef Convection Oven Buy 1 Take 1 P4,999.95

2. Take care of yourself – don’t wait for anyone else to do it for you. Invest in your health and give your body what it needs. I am firm of the belief that moms should take care and love themselves first in order to properly love and care for their family. It shouldn’t take a lot of time and resources to do this anyway, especially with items like these.

Ready cut-up celery P54.42 – throw in the blender with your smoothie or use for sandwiches and salads

Kale P55.79 – kale used to be hard to find but thanks to S&R it’s here and it’s affordable. Add to your cooking for a nutrient boost, your smoothie, or sandwiches

Aside from adding more greens to your diet, make sure to care for your skin too. The easiest way I learned is to keep skin moisturized. Doing this alone keeps infections at bay because dry skin leads to cracked skin which is where bacteria enters your body.

Keri Intense Moisturizer Buy 1 Take 1 P799 – look how huge this is. My moisturizer is the same size and this looks promising with its claim of keeping skin moisturized all day.

Suave Keratin Infused Shampoo P549.95 – if you had Keratin treatment or just want the hair taming effects of Keratin, Suave has this Keratin infused shampoo for you to try.

3. Treat yourself at home – while we dream of being in a staycation all the time, that’s just not practical. I’ve committed myself to putting money in improving our home versus shelling out for staycations. It all starts with small steps, as small as treating you and your family to a set of brand new, soft, imported towels:

There’s lots to choose from at S&R and the quality of these towels can match your favorite hotel’s. You can also find luxury pillows, beddings, etc. and you know you deserve a relaxing shower and a good night’s sleep after all the mommy work.

Imagine you’re enjoying room service midnight snack with these US Blueberry Pies by S&R’s bakery. No recipe, no cooking, no cleaning required. Best of all, it’s Buy 1 Take 1 these days at S&R!

If you must enjoy another slice, try this newer US Pecan Pie for only P349.00

What’s your favorite mommy find at S&R? Post your answer in the comments below. With a little creativity and smart shopping, we can make everyday like mother’s day! :)

Happy shopping at S&R Mommy!

S&R Christmas Deal: Buy 1 Take 1 Home Appliance!

This week, I introduced S&R to a couple of friends who have never been to S&R. I just renewed my membership and to make the most of it, I bring along friends who want to check out deals and hopefully, sign up for their own S&R cards too! We visited S&R in Macapagal Ave. near Baclaran.

I like visiting this branch when I am already in Metro Manila, they have spacious parking – pleasing, friendly, and accommodating staff. My companions were canvassing TV sets and while they’re at it, I took photos of the deals to share on this blog. I know many of us moms would like to have home appliance more than any kinds of Christmas gift! Especially with new technology, home appliance can really improve our household and help us relax more while enjoying with the family.

Home Appliance Deals at S&R Macapagal

1. Smart LED TVs – this is the perfect gift for the entire family. We have one of these and have been spending more time in the living room especially with apps like NetFlix, iFlix – Smart TVs that can connect directly to WiFi makes family bonding time easier and more fun. It also saves us from going out for movies and we just make our own snacks while watching on our Smart TV instead.

Philips Smart TV 55 inch sale price P42,564.95
You save P7,430.00 if you buy from S&R

Other: Samsung Smart TV
P29,998.95 before: P35,998.95

2. Buy 1 Take 1 Personal Coffee Maker – here’s a gift that your coffee-loving family and friends will love. Coffee makers are usually expensive and big in size, however some of us don’t have big spaces in the kitchen but still want to enjoy a good cup of coffee. Coffee is one of the cheap thrills many of us enjoy nowadays! Just to be able to break away from work and prepare our own coffee then enjoy it in peace is such a treat. I got one for me and my husband so we can enjoy coffee anywhere in the house and when out of town. Because it’s buy 1 take 1, meron pa akong isang unit to give away for Christmas. I will raffle it out during our family Christmas party!

Delichef Personal Coffee Maker
P1,699 at BUY 1 TAKE 1

If you want the big version of a coffee machine, I also found this on S&R Facebook Page:

Delichef Coffee
P8,389.95 before: 14,989.95

3. Buy 1 Take 1 Personal Blender – Hamilton Beach Blender is buy 1 take 1 at P1,799.95 so that’s about just P600 for each unit. This is a nice gift that friends and family will use. I also got this to give for Christmas, I have many friends & relatives who are starting to be health conscious and this is my way of supporting them. I bought a personal blender before and it cost me P1,200 so this deal is really amazing because you save P600 and go home with 2 personal blenders.

P1,799.95 at BUY 1 TAKE 1

4. Buy 1 Take 1 Flat Iron - when was the last time you bought a flat iron? If you can’t remember maybe it’s time to replace and retire your appliance especially if it’s too heavy and consumes a lot of electricity. These buy 1 take 1 deals really make shoppers like me happy because I don’t just buy for our own home but also get another item suitable as Christmas gift. Plus, it’s a gift item that recipients are most likely to use and appreciate – not recycle or gift forward!

Black & Decker Dry Iron
P1,249 Buy 1 Take 1

It was just recently I canvassed from an appliance store and each flat iron would cost the same. At S&R shoppers will get two flat irons for the price of one. Hallelujah!

There are more deals that I saw on Facebook before going to S&R like the Tough Mama electric kettle on buy 1 take 1 deal at P899.95 but I guess I’m not the only smart shopper around and they’ve already ran out of stock. Don’t worry though because the staff told me they will restock, just visit S&R on another day.

So many other appliance on sale too like steamers, blenders, etc. I will come back for these before the month ends and dedicate one afternoon to check out all of these. Not sure if these deals will last until December so if you are interested, do visit as soon as you can.

Food Items & Wine

My sister introduced me to Moscato wines and I was able to test some during the Grand Wine Experience. I was so happy to find my favorites at S&R. I don’t usually go to this section but me and my husband are trying something different in the form of wine appreciation. I like sweet & sparkling wines like this Yellow Tail Moscato.

In other supermarkets, this wine is more expensive. At S&R it’s just P399 per bottle. I got some for us to enjoy and another to open on Christmas eve.

Syempre, we also have to buy for ourselves and not just appliances for the home. We deserve this treat, including these baked good items I never leave without. First time to see and try the US Peanut Butter Round Cake made with my favorite Skippy Peanut Butter :)

Happy shopping Mommy!

#LoveSnR: S&R Buy 1 Take 1 Sale on September 30 – October 2

Shopping at S&R is one of my favorite treats, I have been a member for two years now and I can say the P700 membership fee is worth it. I don’t only appreciate the discount but more so the unique choices, relaxed shopping experience, and all their baked treats!

One of my S&R shopping trick is to check their Facebook Page and just recently, they have been hinting on having a Member’s Treat this month. I’ve heard about it from friends but never really experienced it, one thing that resonates loudly is that Member’s Treat is loaded with buy 1 take 1 deals and other huge discounts on all S&R items.

Note S&R has not confirmed it yet but they have announced a SALE period of 3 days, September 30-October 2 from 8AM to 9pm. I am reading other blogs from fellow S&R shoppers to pick up tips and shopping strategies because I will definitely be there 8AM on the dot!

I hope S&R posts on Facebook soon so I can prepare my shopping list and feel like I’m in the show extreme couponing! :)

S&R Back-to-School Finds

It’s June and my son’s school supplies list is ready to be shopped. But here’s a Mommy Lace tip before shopping – shop at home first! Check your kid’s bags, boxes, drawers, and closets for unused and extra school supplies that you can reuse this school year.

Remember, it is not necessary that everything is new. This is a great opportunity to teach your kids about saving things. Especially if you choose quality school supplies that can last several years. This made me rethink where I should go shopping in time for school. My first choice was Baclaran but no one wanted to go with me since by this time, the flea market would be very crowded with fellow parents. Up until I went to S&R to renew my membership did I realize that S&R is a top convenient destination for quality school supplies.


Crayola Composition/Writing notebook pack of 6 – P169.95

I enjoy how S&R Imus changes their product displays on a monthly basis, for June – all school supplies are conveniently and orderly displayed up front for parents to see. Everything is here and I also like the choices, brands, designs, and the price of their school supplies!


Stradmore Composition/Writing notebook pack of 6 P149.95

My son is going to be Grade 1 this year, and he needs 8 writing notebooks. These notebook bundles are practical and the design as well as paper quality will encourage kids to keep writing!


Grade 1, 2, 3 pad paper pack of 3 P74.95

There are all sorts of paper sizes also. Mommy Lace tip: if the school did not provide a “things to buy list”, do ask them what KIND of notebook and paper are required. For my Grade 1, all he needs is a Grade 1 writing pad and a spelling booklet.

For labeling notebooks, books, and other school things – this is on many mommy’s wishlist, Dynamo Label Maker:

Different types and sizes of crayons. S&R also has activity & coloring books for kids to keep them sharp and creative even outside the classroom.

S&R also offers unique and exclusive quality school bags and backpacks like these Peanuts (Charlie & Snoopy) kiddie bags. Nice to buy if your kids need bigger bags this year and if you want something that would withstand wear and tear longer. There are cheaper school bags out there but what I like about branded bags is how they are properly stitched/put together that you don’t end up with a torn bag at the middle of the year.


Snoopy school backpacks P899.95 each

While browsing S&R I saw many shoppers grab this 1 liter Coleman jug. This was recently on sale but the regular price is still okay at P359.95

The big school has a canteen but I want to stick giving packed lunch and snacks. If you are giving your kids allowance, it’s a good way to teach them how to budget but for me – I will just teach my son when we are buying more important goods or services. My family will benefit more from packed meals and snacks because of all the saving and healthier options.

Here are some food keepers, water tumblers at S&R

Aside from school supplies, I also found school socks, school shoes, etc. at the clothes section. Everything you need is basically here!

It’s too early to buy “baon” for school but these buy 1 take 1 muffins are hard to resist. Good to have at home for unexpected guests or simply, for kids and parents to enjoy during their downtime.

That’s all for my back-to-school shopping trip at S&R Club Membership Shopping, am I glad I renewed my membership!  Happy smart shopping mommy :)
