Coupon Preview (May 16)

It looks like we can expect two inserts in this Sunday's newspaper...one SmartSource and one RedPlum. Keep in mind that coupons and their values vary from region to region. I have found that larger cities tend to receive better coupons, so if you live in a small city think about buying a newspaper from a larger city. For those of us in San Angelo, I suggest buying either the Dallas, Houston, or San Antonio newspapers. These can be found at various gas stations and grocery stores.

One More Coupon for Huggies Diapers


There's another coupon available for Huggies Diapers. This one is for $4.00 off any two Huggies Little Movers or Little Snugglers Diapers. Go here if you want to print this coupon. With all the coupons for Huggies diapers that became available today you guys should be set for awhile!!

Thanks Hip 2 Save!

Give, Give, Give!!

Once you get the hang of using coupons to maximize your savings, you will be amazed at how you can drastically reduce your grocery budget and at the same time buy more than you ever have before!! This might take several weeks to a couple of months, but I promise that if you stick with it you will get there. Once you have a good stockpile of groceries, toiletries, and cleaning supplies what should you do? I encourage you to GIVE!! Yes, it is wonderful to be able to have a stockpile for your own family (and I am in no way discouraging that), but it is also wonderful to be able to bless another family!! I started using coupons seriously in December, and since then I have been able to go through my pantry several different times to help a struggling family. This is what I pulled out of my stockpile this afternoon:



This is probably around $60 to $70 worth of groceries, but of course with coupons and sales I spent a fraction of that. I am not showing you this to say "Look what I did," but to really encourage you to think about doing the same. Can you imagine if every one of you was able to go through your pantry every 6 weeks/2 months and donate also? Don't you think we could make a HUGE impact on our city?

I have had people tell me that they don't have any idea where to donate. Here are some ideas:
-Call up your local churches and ask...I am sure that they have requests ALL the time for assistance. They would probably be more than happy to take donations
-Salvation Army
-Local Soup Kitchens
-Pregnancy Help Center (the women/families that they help are probably in need of foods/toiletries as well as baby supplies. For those of you who no longer have children in diapers, go ahead and print those diaper coupons out...if you can use them to buy a pack of diapers for a couple of dollars, think of how much that would bless a single mom who doesn't have money for diapers!)
-Think of families in your neighborhood. If you hear of someone struggling and you don't feel comfortable knocking on their door with groceries, put the bags of groceries there to surprise them...They might never know who blessed them, but you can be sure that the blessing will be tremendous in their lives!!
-People on street corners. I know that there is some controversy over this...I don't feel comfortable giving out money to people that I don't know, but a bag of grocery staples could go a long way in showing people that someone cares

Those are just a few ideas. I know that there are so many more. Look through your local phone book; talk to people at your local church; pray and see what happens.

I began using coupons so that our family would be able to stretch our one income and save more money. Not only are we able to save, but I think just as importantly, we are now able to GIVE!! I really encourage all of you to think about doing the same!!

Coupon for $5.00 off $30.00 Clothing Purchase


Target has released a coupon for $5.00 off Kid's Apparel Purchase of $30.00 or more. I've found a lot of really cute clothes at Target on clearance...if you combine this coupon with clearance finds, you could really stretch your dollar. Go here to print this coupon.

Thanks Saving Addiction!

Another Coupon for $3.00 off Huggies Diapers


I posted about a coupon for $3.00 off Huggies earlier today, and it looks like there is a different link to another $3.00 coupon. Go here if you are interested in printing this coupon. You should be able to print this coupon twice; just hit your back button a couple of times after you first print it and it should reprint for you. This coupon will probably reach it's print limit quickly, so I encourage you to go ahead and print it. Hang onto it until you find a good sale...Walgreens and CVS seem to have sales on diapers every couple of weeks.

Thanks Addicted to Saving!

Albertsons Trip (May 14)

I also ran to Albertsons today. I did a lot better there than I did at Wal-Mart. I bought everything pictured below, and spent...



$7.44, and I saved $76.48 (over 90%!!)

In order for me to do this, I did two separate transactions. Remember, Albertsons will double/triple coupons, but they will only do this on 4 of the exact same coupons, since I had more than 4 Steamfresh coupons, I had to do two different transactions. Also, they will accept Register Rewards or Extra Care Bucks (but only one per transaction). I had 2 different Extra Care Bucks (one $10.00 and one $2.00). In order for me to use both of them, I had to do two different transactions.

Here's how I did it:

Transaction #1:

4 bags of Steamfresh Vegetables $1.00 each (regularly priced at $1.99)
-used 4 coupons for $0.50 off Steamfresh Vegetables (found in 5/2 SmartSource insert) (these were all doubled)
Final Price: FREE!!

2 bags of Wacky Mac Pasta $1.49 each
-used 2 coupons for $0.50 off Wacky Mac Pasta (found here) (these were both doubled)
Final Price: $0.98 (or $0.49 each)

1 bag of Baby Carrots $1.00 (regularly priced at $1.99)

4 Hormel Pork Roasts $3.99 each (regularly priced at $9.99)
-used 4 coupons for $1.00 off Hormel Always Tender product (found in 5/2 SmartSource insert)
Final Price: $11.96 (or $2.99 each)

Plus I used a $10.00 Extra Care Buck

Final Price for Transaction #1: $3.94

Transaction #2:

4 bags of Steamfresh Vegetables $1.00 each (regularly priced at $1.99)
-used 4 coupons for $0.50 off Steamfresh Vegetables (found in 5/2 SmartSource insert)
Final Price: FREE!!

5 bags of Skinner Pasta $0.75 each (regularly priced at $1.39)
-used in ad coupon to make Skinner pasta $0.50 each when you buy 5
Final Price: $2.50 (or $0.50 each)

6 cans of Wolf Chili $1.00 each (regularly priced at $2.19)
-used 3 coupons for $0.50 off 2 Wolf Chili (found in 3/28 SmartSource insert)(these were all doubled)
Final Price: $3.00 (or $0.50 each)

2 bottles of Tabasco Sauce $1.00 each (regularly priced at $1.59)
-used 2 coupons for $0.50 off Tabasco Sauce (found here) (these were both doubled)
Final Price: FREE!!

Plus I used a $2.00 Extra Care Buck.

Final Price for Transaction #2: $3.50

My final cost for everything was $7.44. Coupons really do work if you wait and match them up with sale prices!! How are you guys doing on your shopping trips this week?

Wal-Mart Trip (May 14)

I ran to Wal-Mart today because we desperately needed some bottled water, and I also had some coupons that were about to expire that I wanted to use. I have to admit that it wasn't the greatest shopping trip, but I was still able to buy everything pictured below, and only spend...



$8.65! I saved $25.57...almost 75%

Here's how I did it (and how you can too if you have the coupons):

4 boxes of Capri SunRise Juice Pouches $1.97 each (Just the other day these were priced at $1.86, I guess I should have bought them then. :)
-used 4 coupons for $1.00 off Capri SunRise Juice Pouches (from 4/25 SmartSource insert)
Final Price: $3.88 (or $0.97 each)

2 gallons of Great Value Water $0.74 each
Final Price: $1.48


1 box of Post Raisin Bran Cereal $2.12
-used coupon for $2.00 off Post Cereal (found here)
Final Price: $0.12

4 packages of McCormick Taco Seasoning $0.50 each
-used 4 coupons for $1.00 off McCormick Seasoning (found in 4/25 RedPlum insert)
Final Price: FREE (plus $2.00 overage)

2 bottles of Hunt's Ketchup $0.92 each
-used coupon for $1.00 off 2 (found in April All You magazine)
Final Price: $0.84 (or $0.42 each)

2 bottles of Heinz Ketchup $1.00 each
Final Price: $2.00


4 bottles of Hidden Valley FarmHouse Originals Salad Dressing $2.58 each
-used 4 coupons for $2.00 off FarmHouse Salad Dressing (found in 3/14 SmartSource insert)
Final Price: $2.32 (or $0.58 each)

1 bottle of Country Bob's Barbecue Sauce $2.64
-used coupon for FREE Barbecue Sauce (was mailed to me
Final Price: FREE

2 bottles of Biore Facial Scrubs $1.97 each
-used 2 coupons for $2.00 off Biore Products (found here)
Final Price: FREE (plus $0.06 overage)

All in all I spent $8.65...I have to admit I was a little disapointed in the total. I didn't feel like I bought very much today, but then I realized that I would have spent close to that much on the Capri Suns alone without coupons. Isn't it funny how your point of view changes on the cost of items once you start using coupons. I would not have thought twice about spending almost $35.00 on what I bought before I started using coupons, and now I feel like $8.00 and change is too much. :)

Post Cereal $0.12 at Wal-Mart


Do you remember the coupon for $2.00 off select Post cereal that I mentioned yesterday? Well, Wal-Mart has Post cereal priced at $2.12 now, so after coupon only $0.12!!
Oh, and these aren't the small boxes. I bought a box of Raisin Bran and it was the 25 oz. size!! Hope some of you are able to buy a box of inexpensive cereal!!
Go here if you still haven't printed this coupon.

Compare Prices!!

I went shopping at Wal-Mart and Albertsons this morning (I'll be posting about those trips a little later today), but I wanted to write up this post first before I forget. I needed to buy some ketchup today (I had a coupon for Hunt's ketchup that expires soon). Albertsons has their ketchup on sale this week, but I wanted to compare the price at Wal-Mart first. I was expecting it to be priced around the same as Albertsons, but you never know. I started comparing the prices and I was a little surprised. At Wal-Mart the 13.5 oz. bottle of Hunt's ketchp was priced at $0.98, but the 24 oz. bottle was priced at $0.92...I thought there must be a mistake, so I price checked them...and those were the right prices. Then I started looking around at the Heinz ketchup prices...20 oz. bottle of Heinz ketchup was $1.63, but the 40 oz. bottle was only $1.00. I'm just writing this to remind all of you to check and compare prices...who would think that a bigger bottle would be cheaper.

Oh, and I ended up buying the 40 oz. Heinz ketchup even though I didn't have a coupon. $1.00 was too good a price to pass up...especially with all the hotdogs/hamburgers that we'll be having over the next few weeks!!

Mega Swagbucks Friday!!

Search & Win

It's Friday, which means MEGA SWAGBUCKS!! You can search and win Swagbucks each and every day, but on Friday you will have even more chances to win high value Swagbucks. If you have already signed up for Swagbucks, don't forget to do searches. If you have added the Swagbucks toolbar on your computer (which I highly encourage), search each site that you would normally go to in the Swagbucks search box. Instead of typing in the address or clicking on your favorites, simply type the site that you want to go to in your Swagbucks toolbar...you will still get to the site you want to go to, but you'll have added chances of earning Swagbucks at the same time. Those Swagbucks really add up, and remember, it only takes 450 Swagbucks to earn a $5.00 Amazon gift card. Have you checked out the Swag Store to see what prizes you can earn? My favorite category is the gift cards...you can win gift cards to Amazon, Target, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, Sephora, JC Penney, The Bass Pro Shop, Lowes and so many more!!

If you haven't signed up, it is COMPLETELY FREE, and so easy to start earning prizes. If you are interested in signing up, go here or click on the banner below. Remember, it is completely free, and you will receive 30 Swagbucks just for signing up!

Are you skeptical about it? I was too when I first read about it, but I decided to sign up and try it for myself. I signed up at the end of December, and since then I have earned $95.00 in Amazon gift cards for doing nothing more than searching for internet sites that I would normally go to anyway. Swagbucks has completely won me over, and I seriously don't want you guys to miss out on the chance to win FREE items just by doing your normal work on the computer!!

Target--Inexpensive Bandages


Summertime at my house means playing outside which inevitably leads to scraped knees and elbows. There are a couple of coupons that should get us some inexpensive bandages at Target right now.

Nexcare Bandages
-manufacturer's coupon for $1.00 off (found here)
COMBINED with:
-Target coupon for $0.50 off (found here) (Click on Health Care to find the coupon quickly)
I think these are priced a little under $2.00 at Target, so around $0.50 a box if you use both coupons.

Band-Aid Bandages
-manufacturer's coupon for $0.50 off any Band-Aid product (found in 4/25 SmartSource insert)
COMBINED with:
-Target coupon for $0.75 off (found here)

I need to go and buy my boys some summer sandals. I was looking around to see if i could find any deals on shoes, and I came across this coupon. Save $5.00 off any $25.00 purchase at Payless. Go here to see this coupon...you can print off the page and take it to your local Payless store, or you can use the coupon code and shop online. I'm not sure if Payless is running any sales now, but this should still make for some inexpensive shoes!
Keep in mind that this coupon expires on May 31st.

Coupon for $0.60 off Dr. Pepper (2 liter or 12 pack)


I haven't seen a coupon for Dr. Pepper in a LONG time. Go here to print a coupon for $0.60 off any 2 liter or 12 pack of Dr. Pepper (regular or diet). You should be able to print this coupon off twice.
Dr. Peppers go on sale for $1.00 a LOT; you can even find them for $0.88 every now and then. Don't forget that HEB is running a special this week...BUY 1 2 liter Dr. Pepper and get Hunt's Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce FREE...with this coupon, you should be able to get both products for less than a dollar!! (I have not tried this deal yet, so I am not 100% sure that this coupon will scan at HEB. I plan on trying it later today and when I do I'll let you know if it scans or not!!)

Thanks Hip 2 Save and Mojo Savings!

Coupon for $2.00 off Biore Skincare Product


There's a coupon available for $2.00 off any Biore Skincare Product. Go here if you want to print this coupon.

This coupon could be combined with the coupon for 1 FREE Cleanser when you buy any Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips (from the 3/7 SmartSource insert). I've had issues combining a manufacturer's coupon with a Buy One Get One FREE coupon at Wal-Mart, but CVS, Target, and Walgreens accept two without any problems. One coupon for the product you are buying, and one coupon for the item you will be getting free.

Thanks Passion for Savings!

Issues with Internet Coupons at HEB


Just a quick note before I start the coupon match up. There have been several incidents where people have not been able to use internet coupons at HEB. HEB's coupon policy says that they will accept internet coupons, but if the internet coupons do not scan properly they will not take them. This is kind of a hassle because as a shopper you never know if the internet coupon will be accepted or not. This happened to me last week...I had two internet coupons, one was accepted and one was denied. The cashier could not tell me why some coupons will scan and others won't. I'm saying this because I am not 100% sure that the coupons that I will be listing from the internet will scan correctly at HEB since I have not tried all of these deals myself. If your coupons don't scan properly don't be afraid to tell the cashier that you don't want the product if they won't accept the coupon...it might take a little longer during checkout, but if you are only buying the product because you thought you'd be getting a good deal with the coupon, don't feel like you are stuck buying the product without the coupon. I hope that is clear and hopefully all of the coupons for this week's ad will scan with no problem and this will not be an issue for anyone! :)

Albertsons Ad/Coupon Match Up (May 12 - 18)


Looks like there are going to be several good deals at Albetsons this week. Remember, in order to really start stretching and shrinking your grocery budget, you need to stock up on items when they are on sale...instead of only buying 1 product, go ahead and buy 5 or 6. Try to buy enough to see your family through until the next sale...this way you will never have to pay full price again. Instead of feeling like you are stuck paying what the store has items priced at, you can wait until YOU feel items are priced right for your budget.

This week's ad has A LOT of coupons. Keep in mind that you can combine a manufacturer's coupon with an in ad Albertsons coupon, but not with an in ad manufacturer's coupon.

A Friend's Shopping Trip

One of my friends had a GREAT shopping trip today. She bought everything pictured below and spent...



$13.63!! (One of the Windex Outdoor Window Cleaners alone costs $12.99, so really for less than the cost of one of those (once you calculate tax in), she was able to get everything pictured!!) She was able to save $68.96...83.5%!!!

In order to do this, she went to three stores:

Walgreens...2 Soft Scrub, 2 Infusium products, 2 Stride Gum
Spent: $1.06
Saved $19.96

Dollar General... 4 bottles of Gillette Body Wash, 2 Pedigree bones, 1 box of envelopes, and 1 Reese's Peanut Butter Cup that didn’t make it to picture
Spent: $1.79
Saved: $12.00

Target...2 Windex Outdoor Window Cleaners, 2 Raid Indoor/Outdoor Bug Sprays, 1 Spiderman DVD
Spent: $10.78
Saved: $37.00

At Target she had to do 3 different transactions to make this work.
Transaction #1: 2 Windex Outdoor Window Cleaners (this generated 2 $5.00 Gift Cards)
Transaction #2: 2 Raid Bug Sprays (this generated 1 $5.00 Gift Card, and she used gift cards from transaction #1 to help lower her cost)
Transaction #3: Spiderman DVD (she used gift card from transaction #2 to help lower her cost)

Great job Shelli!!

How are the rest of you doing with your shopping trips?

Deals at Wal-Mart


I have to admit that since I started getting serious about using coupons I don't shop at Wal-Mart nearly as much as I used to. My oldest son, Josh, had some money he received for his birthday, and he wanted to go and buy a new Nintendo DS game at Wal-Mart. While we were there, I made a quick run through the store to see if there were any good deals. I spotted several deals that I wanted to fill you in on. (Keep in mind that this was with 3 boys and a husband who wasn't feeling very good, so some of my numbers might be just a tad off.)

Schick Disposable Razors (12 pack) $1.97
-coupon for $2.00 off Schick Disposable Razors (from 4/11 SmartSource insert...this expires 5/23)
Final Price: FREE

Hidden Valley Farmhouse Originals Salad Dressing $2.48
-coupon for $2.00 off Hidden Valley (from 3/14 SmartSource insert...this expires 5/15)
Final Price: $0.48

Capri Sun Sunrise $1.87
-coupon for $1.00 off Capri Sun Sunrise (from 4/25 SmartSource insert...this expires 5/23)
Final Price: $0.87

Del Monte Fruit Chillers $1.88
-coupon for $1.00 off Del Monte Fruit Chillers (from 4/18 RedPlum insert)
Final Price: $0.88
I have to admit that this is one product that I might (just might) be willing to pay full price for. Last summer I think we lived on these, so I am so excited about all the coupons that I've been able to scrounge up for these...I think I have 20 coupons for this product, and I am sure that I will use all of them before the summer is over. :)

I didn't spend much time at Wal-Mart, but still wanted to fill you in on some of these deals (especially since some of the coupons will be expiring soon). Let me know if you find any other GREAT deals!!

Free Sample of Stayfree Thermo Control Pads


Go here to request your FREE sample of Stayfree's new Thermo Control Pads. On the left side of the page is a where you click to submit for this FREE sample, but I also noticed that on the right side of the page is a place to click to request a FREE sample of Stayfree Ultra Thin Pads. It let me fill out my information to receive both samples.

Keep in mind that even if you don't use these products, these samples usually come with coupons AND you can always donate these products to others!!

Thanks Addicted to Saving!

More RedPlum Coupons Available


Just wanted to remind you that there are quite a few new coupons available at redplum.com New coupons are added to the site throughout the month. I try to check coupon sites at least once a week to see if there are any new coupons that have been added. Below are the coupons on this site that I will definitely be printing:

-$0.50 off any 1 C&H Sugar Product 2 lbs. or larger (Albertsons runs sales on their sugar pretty regularly and this coupon will be doubled)

-$0.50 off any Riceland Rice (again this coupon will be doubled at Albertsons)

-$1.00 off one package of Honeysuckle Turkey Scallopini, Cutlets, or Tenderloins (it is hard to find coupons on fresh meat, so when I see them I print them right away and hold onto them until I can pair them up with a sale...I just printed this coupon and it doesn't expire until 10/31/2010, so plenty of time to find a sale)

-$1.50 off any two boxes of Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats, All Bran, or Raisin Bran

Go here to see all of the coupons that are available to print.

Sample of Carefree Ultra Protection Pantiliners


Go here to request your free sample of Carefree Ultra Protection Pantiliners. While you are there don't forget to check the box to request a coupon for $1.00 off this product as well.

Coupons for Gerber Apparel


I know that there are several of you out there that are either pregnant, or have young children. I found several coupons that are available for Gerber apparel or bedding products.

Coupons that are available:
-$2.00 off $10.00 or more of Gerber apparel or bedding

-$1.00 off Gerber apparel or bedding

-$2.00 off 2 Gerber Onesies

Go here if you are interested in printing these coupons.

You'll find these products on clearance at Wal-Mart and Target several times a year, so be on the lookout for those. Also, think a little outside the box with the coupons...little hats and socks count as apparel items, so if you find those on clearance and combine it with the coupon for $1.00 off apparel you should score some very cheap (if not FREE items)

$0.50 Frappucinos at CVS


While we are talking about Starbucks, I found another GREAT deal. CVS has Starbucks Frappucinos on sale 2 for $3.00
Go here to print off two $1.00 coupons. (In order to print the coupon you'll need to create your own drink, name it, save it, and then print)
After using the coupons, you should be able to get two drinks for $1.00...or $0.50 each!!

Thanks Mojo Savings!

Reminder: Starbucks Half Price Frappucinos



Just wanted to remind you that Starbucks is running a special Happy Hour Promotion this week (it ends on May 16). Frappucinos will be half price from 3:00 to 5:00!! Go here if you want more information about this deal.

Coupons in the Mail

I just got back from checking our mail, and I got two coupons that I want you guys to be on the lookout for as well.

-CVS coupon for $2.00 off any 1 package of Huggies Jeans Diapers (yes, jeans diapers...the diapers actually look like little jeans with back pockets printed on them and everything :)
Since this is a CVS coupon, it can be combined with a manufacturer's coupon to double up on savings...and if you wait to use it until CVS has an Extra Care Buck deal on Huggies diapers, you should be able to get VERY inexpensive diapers!! (We are done with diapers at my house...WOOHOO!!...so if any of you would like this coupon, just let me know and I'll get it to you.)

-Sears coupon for extra 20% off apparel, costume jewelry, accessories, shoes, fragrances, cosmetics, bad/bath/window items. This coupon is valid from May 14 - May 16. There are some exclusions printed on the back, but I think you should be able to use this coupon on clearance items...just check with the cashier before you do.

Keep your eye on items you get in the mail. Don't automatically throw all the junk mail away; you might be throwing out valuable coupons!!

Coupon Swap

Just a quick question for those of you who live in San Angelo. Someone asked me about the possibility of having a coupon swap...getting together maybe once a month to trade out coupons that we don't need. I wanted to know if any of you would be interested in it. I try to pass on coupons that I won't use to friends, but thought that it might be better if we could get together and trade out coupons and have a chance to talk/ask questions. Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think about this idea. I know that with everyone's schedules that it is hard to get a night away, but if there is some interest, maybe we could schedule one night to do this.
Another possibility would be to have a coupon drop box at a central location (a church/library). We could put coupons in that we know we won't be using and take coupons out that we would use. Any feedback about this idea would really be appreciated, so let me know!!

FREE Child Safety Tattoos


Go here if you want to request FREE Child Safety Tattoos. I have to admit that I am not 100% sure what these are, but I believe these are temporary tattoos that you can put on your children with your information on them. That way if your children get lost, they will have your contact information on them. These would be GREAT if you are planning on taking young kids on any trips this summer to amusement parks/zoos/etc.

Thanks Addicted to Saving!

Target Trip (May 10)

I also ran to Target this morning. I had several coupons that would allow me to get FREE items that I wanted to use before they expired. I bought everything pictured below, and spent...



$9.17!!

I broke my trip up into two different transactions because my first transaction generated a $5.00 Target gift card that I wanted to use to lower my out of pocket expense on transaction #2.

Transaction #1:

2 Nivea Body Wash for Women $3.99 each
-used 2 coupons for $4.00 off Nivea Body Wash (from 5/2 RedPlum insert)
Final Price: FREE (plus $0.02 in overage)

13 Travel size Dove Deodorants $0.97 each
-used 13 coupons for $1.00 off Dove Deodorant (from 4/25 RedPlum insert)
Final Price: FREE (plus $0.39 in overage)

7 Carefree Pantyliners $0.94 each
-used 7 coupons for $1.00 off Carefree products (from 4/25 SmartSource insert)
Final Price: FREE (plus $0.42 in overage)

1 Scrubbing Bubbles Power Sprayer Starter Kit $8.69
-used 1 coupon for $5.00 off (from 4/11 SmartSource insert)
-PLUS used coupon for $5.00 Target Gift Card when you buy Scrubbing Bubbles Power Sprayer Starter Kit (from 5/2 SmartSource insert...this was a regional coupon that not every paper received)
Final Price: $3.69 PLUS a $5.00 Target Gift Card

Total for Transaction #1: $2.86 AND received a $5.00 Gift Card

Transaction #2:
12 Kid Cuisine Meals (ranging in price from $1.23 to $1.50 each)
-used 6 coupons for $1.00 off 2 Kid Cuisine Meals (from April All You magazine and from ConAgra Coupon Book)
Final Price: $11.31

I used my $5.00 Target Gift Card from Transaction #1.

Total for Transaction #2: $6.31

I spent a total of $9.17, and saved over $83.00!!

CVS Trip (May 10)

I went to CVS this morning to see if I could find any good deals. I bought everything pictured below and spent:



$8.13, PLUS I left the store with $12.00 in ECBs! This is more than I normally would spend at CVS, but we really needed milk and toilet paper. That's the great thing about shopping at CVS and Walgreens...I bought the toilet paper PLUS all the other items pictured for LESS than the cost of toilet paper alone at Wal-Mart.

I bought:
2 Right Guard Deodorants
2 bottles of Bayer Aspirin
2 packages of Carefree pantiliners
1 box of U by Kotex Tampons
3 bags of M&Ms
1 Contour Blood Glucose Monitoring System
2 gallons of Gandy's milk
2 packages of Cottonelle Toilet Paper

I saved $76.12 today...that's around 90%!!

Bayer Contour Money Maker at CVS



There is a pretty great money maker available at CVS this week. This week select Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems are on sale for $19.99. If you buy one you will receive a $15.00 ECB. To make this deal even better, in the 4/25 RedPlum insert there was a coupon for $10.00 off the purchase of Breeze 2, Contour, Contour USB, or A1CNow Selfcheck Monitors. If you have this coupon you will pay $9.99, and receive a $15.00 ECB.

$9.99 seems like quite a bit out of pocket, but if you already have ECBs you'll be able to lower this amount even more...and keep in mind that anytime you make MORE ECBs than you spend you are coming out ahead.

I did this deal earlier today. No one in my family has diabetes, but with my ECBs I was able to get this almost for FREE...plus earn $15.00 in ECBs. I plan on donating this item since we won't be using it. In the ad it states that you are supposed to get a $15.00 ECB when you purchase this item...my receipt only showed a $5.00 ECB for purchasing this. I took my receipt up to the cashier; she had to call a manager up and the manager printed off an additional $10.00 ECB for me. If you decide to do this deal, please make sure you check your receipt so you can be sure to get the proper amount of ECBs.

CVS M&M Deal


I was looking through the CVS ad, and noticed that M&Ms are on sale for $2.00 a bag. I pulled out my coupon binder and found that I had a couple of coupons that would turn this into a SWEET deal. I thought it was too good a deal to really be true, but then I started looking on other coupon websites, and I noticed that a couple of other people had noticed this deal as well...so I thought I should share it with you as well. Keep in mind that I have not yet tried this deal, but I will be sure to try it when I head to CVS for my weekly shopping trip.

The last time I was at CVS I scanned my card under the price scan machine and a CVS coupon printed for $3.00 off any 2 Snickers, M&Ms, or Dove bags. I'm sure that if you scanned your card, some of you probably received this coupon as well.

Here's how to turn this into a SWEET deal:

Buy 3 bags of M&Ms ($6.00) (you'll need to make sure to get bags that are 12.6 oz. or larger)
-use coupon for $3.00 off (from price scan machine that I mentioned above)
-AND use coupon for Buy 2 M&Ms get 1 FREE (from 5/2 RedPlum insert)
Final Price: $1.00 (FOR ALL THREE BAGS!!)

Like I said, this is definitely a SWEET deal!!

Grocery Challenge (May--Week 1)

For the first week of May I think I stretched our grocery budget quite a bit. My grocery budget includes all food, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and medicines. (We used to include going out to eat in this category of our budget as well, but my husband and I decided to make a separate category for that now...we typically go out to eat once or twice a month)

WEEK ONE:

Spent: $47.73

Saved: $238.56

That's a savings of 83.4%!!

How are you guys doing? Remember, any amount of savings is a step in the right direction!! $5.00 a week might not seem like much, but over the course of a year that is $260.00!!
