Duncan Hines Brownies--$0.33

CVS has the Duncan Hines Brownies priced at 12 for $10.00 this week...that breaks down to just $0.83 a box. If you use the coupon for $0.50 off Duncan Hines Brownies that I just posted about, you'll be able to get a box for just $0.33!!

This sale is featured on the last page of their ad.

The CVS I shop at does not have a large stock of food items, so I will probably take the ad into Wal-Mart and price match there.

Tyson Coupons

Go here if you are interested in printing the following coupons:

$1.00 off one bag of Tyson Any'tizers Wings
$1.00 off one box of Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches

In last week's HEB ad they had a deal where if you buy select Tyson products (Any'tizers were included in this), you would get Breyer's ice cream for free.
This deal is not in the ad for this week, but I am almost positive that the deal goes through May 17th. You should be able to find the yellow store coupons for FREE Breyer's Ice Cream at HEB (either in the freezer section or on the large wall by the produce section with all the in store coupons).

The deal should look like this:

Buy Tyson Any'tizers Wings $6.98
And Breyer's Ice Cream $3.48
-use coupon for $1.00 off Tyson Any'tizers
-use yellow in store coupon for FREE ice cream
Final Price: Pay $5.98 for Wings and Ice Cream

Coupon for Yoplait Kids and Healthy Snacking Tips

I feel like my kids are constantly wanting to eat, and it can be a struggle to find foods/snacks that we all agree on. If you are the same way, you might want to watch the video below from Yoplait Kids. It gives some ideas on healthy snacking for your kids.

You can also go here and print a coupon for $0.50 off Yoplait Kids yogurt.

These are regularly priced around $2.00, but I've seen them price reduced at both HEB and Albertsons for between $1.00 and $1.50. With coupon (especially doubles at Albertsons) you should get a GREAT deal!!

Thanks My Blogspark and Yoplait Kids for the healthy snack ideas and coupon!

Cinemark--Summer Movie Clubhouse

I am excited about this deal!! Every summer Cinemark movie theaters has a summer movie program for kids. On select dates at 9:00 a.m.during the summer Cinemark will show a kid friendly (rated G or PG) movie to kids for an incredible price. These are not just released movies, but ones that have been out for about a year. You can pre-purchase movie passes for 10 movies for just $5.00 a person...that is just $0.50 a movie, or you can pay $1.00 at the door. Either way, it's an incredible deal!! (Just don't get sucked in by the concession stand).

My kids love going to the movie theater, but we only go a couple of times a year since it is so expensive. They will be really excited about being able to go to the movies more during the summer.

One thing to note...we went a couple of times last year and it was CROWDED!! If last summer was any indication, you will want to get there early to get seats together.

The $5.00 summer passes are now available while supplies last. If you live in the San Angelo area you can go here to see a list of the movies that are planned for this summer. If you are not in the San Angelo area then you can go here to find a movie schedule for a theater near you.

Thanks A Thrifty Mom!

Walgreens-Reach Toothbrush Deal

Walgreens has a Register Rewards deal this week for Listerine and Reach Toothbrushes/Floss:

Buy 2 for $6.00 and Receive a $2.00 Register Reward

I wasn't planning on doing this deal, but I changed my mind when I went to Walgreens today.

I went to the Walgreens across from HEB, and I found $2.00 peelie coupons on the Reach toothbrush twin packs.

The deal looks like this:

Buy 2 Reach Twin Packs $6.00

-use 2 peelie coupons for $2.00 off
Final Price: Pay $2.00 for 4 toothbrushes and receive a $2.00 Register Reward

(If you are starting out with Register Rewards then this deal is even better).

I was at Walgreens around 2:45 this afternoon, and they still had quite a few of the twin packs of toothbrushes with peelie coupons on them. I am guessing these will go quick, so if you are interested in this deal then I'd hurry over there. Hope you guys are able to find the same deal!

While you are at Walgreens you might consider doing this deal as well:

BUY 2 Colgate Total Toothpaste $6.00 and receive a $4.00 Register Reward

-use 2 coupons for $0.75 off Colgate Toothpaste (found in 5/1 SmartSource insert)
Final Price: Pay $4.50 and receive a $4.00 Register Reward

Coupon for Pilgrim's Chicken

Go here to print a coupon for $1.00 off any Pilgrim's Fresh Chicken Product.

It took me a minute to find this'll find it on the very top of the page on the blue bar. :)

Thanks Freebies4Mom!

Chili's--FREE Chips and Queso and Kids Eat FREE Tonight!!

Go here and join Chili's Email Club and you'll be able to print a coupon for FREE Chips and Queso with purchase of one or more entrees.

If you were planning on taking the kids out to eat tonight, you might consider stopping by Chili's. Tonight (May 10th) Kid's Eat FREE At Chili's. Fine print states that you can get TWO FREE Kid's Meals for each adult entree purchased. Go here if you'd like to print a coupon for this offer.

I know that for our family it would be cheaper to do this than to run by a fast food restaurant for supper...just skip ordering drinks and stick with water.


Go here to print a coupon for FREE Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows when you buy Honey Maid Grahams and Hershey's Milk Chocolate (6 pack).

My youngest son has been asking for s'mores for the past few weeks. He had them one time last summer, and I guess they left an impression on him. :)

Thanks Hip2Save!

Arby's--Inexpensive Lunch Date

I just realized that there was another coupon for Arby's...FREE Market Fresh Grilled Chicken & Pecan Salad when you purchase a Pepsi Beverage. (found here)

If you use the coupon for FREE Roast Beef Sandwich and the FREE Market Fresh Sandwich, you could have a really cheap lunch date. Buy a Pepsi to share and get both sandwiches for FREE...probably around $2.00 for lunch for two.

(Note, the coupon does state not valid with any other coupon or offer, so you'd have to order separately.)

Arby's--FREE Roast Beef Sandwich

Go here and join Arby's Extras. After you do, you'll receive an email with a coupon for a FREE Roast Beef Sandwich.

I just signed up and it said I'd receive an email with the coupon within the next 24 hours. I haven't received the coupon yet, so I'm not sure if the coupon will be for a FREE sandwich when you purchase something else. The website doesn't state that there will be a purchase necessary, just that you will receive a FREE sandwich for joining.

Create a New Email Account for Coupon Offers

One of the best ways to get high value coupons is to sign up for different newsletters, promotions, etc. When you are signing up for these deals, many times you will be asked to enter in your email address. This can (and will) lead to a lot of junk emails. I suggest setting up a new email account that can be used ONLY for these promotions. That way you'll still be able to take advantage of the GREAT high value coupons, but your normal email inbox won't be flooded with junk.

Coupon for Glad ForceFlex Trash Bags

I have to admit that I have a really hard time finding a good deal on trash bags. I used to buy the cheapest bags I could find, but I quickly found out that there are certain things that I'm willing to spend a little more money on...especially after having trash bags rip and spill all over the floor/driveway/etc.

Go here to print a coupon for $1.00 off Glad ForceFlex Trash Bags.

Wendy's Coupon

Go here and sign up to receive the Wendy's newsletter. Once you do, you will receive an email with a coupon for $1.00 off any Premium Sandwich from Wendy's.

Coupon for McDonald's Frozen Drink

Go here to print a coupon for $1.00 off any size McCafe Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, Frappe, or Real Fruit Smoothie.

The frozen strawberry lemonade looks delicious!!

Thanks Passion for Savings!

Coupon for Kikkoman Soy Sauce

Go here to print a coupon for $1.00 off any Kikkoman Soy Sauce.

The smaller bottles are priced at $1.42 at Wal-Mart, so just $0.42 after coupon.

Sally Hansen Nail Polish

I am not sure how much Sally Hansen Nail Polish is priced at Target, but with the following coupon stack, you should be able to get a pretty good deal.

Use coupon for $1.00 off any Sally Hansen Nail Treatment Product (found here)(I found this using zip code 76904 and clicking on the Personal Care category)
-AND use Target coupon for $1.00 off any Sally Hansen Item (found here)(I found this by clicking on the Beauty Category)

Using both coupons, you'll receive $2.00 off a bottle of nail polish. I am guessing that should make for a pretty great deal.

Thanks My Frugal Adventures!

Scotch Scissors--$0.49

I ran to Target today, and I noticed a great deal on something every couponer needs...a good pair of scissors.

Scotch Scissors price cut to $1.49
-use coupon for $1.00 off any one Scotch Scissors (found here)
Final Price: $0.49

Coupon for Quiznos

Go here to print a coupon for $1.00 off a Regular Sub or $2.00 off a Large Sub at Quiznos.

There is also a coupon available for FREE Chip and Fountain Drink when you buy a Regular Sub, Large Sub, or Regular Chopped Salad.

Albertsons--$0.24 Hunt's Ketchup

I went to Albertsons this afternoon, and wanted to report a GREAT deal that I found.

I was planning on buying a couple bottles of Hunt's Ketchup. The ketchup was advertised in the circular for $1.25, using the $0.25 coupon that I posted about, it would cost just $0.50 a bottle. Well, this deal is even better.

Hunt's Ketchup was priced at $0.99
-use coupon for $0.25 (found here) (will triple)
Final Price: $0.24

Over the next couple of months we should be seeing a lot of sales on condiments, and hopefully some great coupons. I suggest stocking up when the price is low. Last year I bought enough ketchup/mustard to last us the whole year when I was able to get it dirt cheap. Don't go crazy and buy an exorbitant amount. Think about what your family will realistically use over the course of a year, and plan accordingly. Last summer I bought 15 bottles of ketchup, and we have 2 left, so I will be restocking ketchup when I find it on sale.

I am not sure how long this price is good for since it is an unadvertised sale.

Albertsons--FREE Candy

I'm putting together a list to go shopping at Albertsons this afternoon. I'm a little behind on my shopping this week, and wanted to get a few of the deals before the new ad comes out. I came across this deal that I thought you guys might be interested in.

Mars, Nestle Individual Candy (Select Varieties) 2 for $0.88
-use coupon for $0.50 off 2 Nestle Single Bars (found in 5/1 SmartSource insert) (will double)
Final Price: 2 candy bars for FREE

This is featured in the current ad, so you only have until tomorrow to take advantage of this deal.

Arby's--FREE Market Fresh Grilled Chicken and Pecan Salad with Purchase of Pepsi

Go here to print a coupon for a FREE Market Fresh Grilled Chicken and Pecan Salad when you purchase a 22 oz. Pepsi Beverage. I'm not sure what the Pepsi will cost, but I'm guessing around $2.00.

This coupon is valid from May 9th to May 15th.

If you are planning on grabbing a quick lunch/supper while you are running errands or at work, then this should make for a pretty inexpensive meal!

Thanks Addicted to Saving!

Searching for Sunday Coupons

I just wanted to share a very frustrating situation that happened yesterday.

We were on our way to church, and I asked my husband to please stop at the gas station so I could pick up some newspapers.

I ran into the gas station and was happy to find a large stack of San Antonio newspapers. I picked up several and noticed on the front page of the newspaper that it said there were over $92.00 of coupon savings inside the newspaper. I decided to flip through the newspaper before buying it, to make sure the coupons were included.

I flipped through 12 different newspapers...NONE of them had the coupon inserts. I didn't have time to look through any more since we didn't want to be late to church.

I have had several people mention that they are having a hard time finding coupons in the newspapers, but it's been a while since I've been to the store to buy newspapers on Sunday, so I hadn't personally run into this problem.

PLEASE remember to flip through your newspapers before purchasing them, and PLEASE don't ever remove coupons out of newspapers that you are not purchasing.

Over the past year, I have been having coupon inserts mailed directly to my house so that I don't have to deal with searching for newspapers on Sunday mornings. (Our Sundays are very busy, and I didn't want to have the added pressure of driving around looking for newspapers added to our schedule). If you are getting frustrated finding newspapers with coupons, then this might be something you'd be interested in.

I get a large packet full of coupons mailed to my house every two weeks. The picture above shows the amount of inserts that are in a typical shipment. (You can choose to have them delivered less often...once a month. I've just found that for my family getting them every 2 weeks works best). Each packet costs $33.00, but it is filled with hundreds of dollars of coupons. There are enough coupons in each insert to easily split them with a family member or friend. Each packet contains multiples of the same insert...usually between 2 to 6 of each of the inserts from the previous month's newspapers, so you'll be able to get multiple coupons without having to purchase multiple newspapers.

I get my coupons from a company called American Consumer Services. I contacted Mr. Daniels (the owner) and asked him if it would be okay if I wrote a blog about his business...I wanted to make sure that if any of you were interested in receiving shipments that he would have enough coupon inserts in stock to accommodate new orders. He told me to let people know about it. To make things better, if you mention that you heard about his business through Lucrecia Wingfield's blog, he'll take $3.00 off your first just $30.00 instead of the normal $33.00.

This is a smaller company, and he does not have a website. You can contact him at 1-866-790-5088 or email him at

If any of you are getting frustrated finding good coupons in the newspapers, then this might be something you want to take advantage of. If you are new to coupon shopping, or have a smaller family you might want to consider going in with a family member or friends because you do get a lot of coupons, and it might be kind of overwhelming at first. :)

I know this isn't for everyone, but I wanted to let you guys know what works for me since I know there are more and more incidents where coupons are being removed from newspapers.

Let me know...have you had problems finding coupons in newspapers? Where do you think is the best place to find newspapers? Do you think stores should keep newspapers behind the counters to ensure people do not take the coupon inserts without paying for the newspaper?

Coupon for Polaner All Fruit Spread

Go here to print a coupon for $1.00 off Polaner All Fruit Spread.

The last time I priced these at Wal-Mart, they were right around $1.98.
