Shaws- Spent $5.97, Saved $133!!

I had a great trip to Shaws today! I did have some trouble and a disappointment, but overall pretty smooth. I did 4 transactions. Nothing actually printed for my first transaction I tried to do at self checkout (only did that since they had 2 registers open and each was 5 people deep). Not the first time self check out wasn't loaded right.

The best part was when the less than friendly supervisor I often see there told me the Flu catalina was done last week and that the self check out wasn't the problem. It's happened to me on several occasions and so it does irk me when I get told its me or I'm wrong. I guess this is a vent of sorts :)

Anywho, the same transaction at a regular register printed $16.50 in catalinas. $3 of that was the Flu catalina. Lesson learned.

I left with $21 in catalinas on my next purchase and $133 in food for under $6!!!!

I am giving away several of the items here to some families I know could use them. Not that we can't ;) but some of these are foods we don't eat.

Target Deals!!!

Missing from this pic is a Graco Comfort Sport Convertible car seat and a box of 88 Pampers Pull Ups. I paid $17.xx out of pocket and received $10 back in gift cards. The car seat was marked down to $12.50!!! They had 4 or 5 of them, so check your store! They are marking down other Graco baby items as well.

The Glade deal was buy 5 of the holiday scents (glade tins or the refills) get a $5 gift card. I had $1.50 off any tin coupon (5 of them) and buy the tin get a free refill coupon (5 of those). So I got a $5 gift card for my 5 tins and another for my 5 refills! The refills were FREE! The tins cost me $5, but I got $10 back in gift cards!

The $1.50 off the tins I found inside the tins themselves. Please do not take them out of tins you do not buy. When I went today none of my tins had candles. None of the tins there had them, but they should have. So please only take the coupons out of the ones you are purchasing. If I do this deal again I'll have to figure something else out since I didn't get any coupons today :(

Check out Alice.com. I heard about this on For The Mommas and just made my first order last night.

Use the link I provided and you'll get a $10 off when you spend $50 bonus! You don't need to spend the $50 all at once either. I spent $22.xx last night on items that normally go for around $31 or so. Not terrible for items that don't usually go on sale or have coupons!

This site is great for several reasons. First they offer free shipping! Second, they offer discounts in the form of coupons or percentages. It's super easy to use this site and you can add things as your "products" and set reminders if it's something you need often (such as toilet paper).

They have mostly health and beauty items. Things such as diapers, makeup, shampoo, medicine, razors, etc. I ordered some medicine products there are never good sales on because they were cheaper than they are at walmart (cheapest I've seen, until now) and a pack of Luvs diapers.

Things you should know:

You normally need to order at least 6 items. Not too bad since some are even $.29 each. But on your first order they will let you slide with less.

Some prices aren't better than the stores using sales and coupons. So keep that in mind. If you NEED it now, chances are this is the best price. If you can wait though, some items will be a better price with sales and coupons. This includes razors, shampoos, etc. Other items are a great deal, so definitely check them out often!

Overall it looks like a great way to buy some items cheap! I will report back when I get my order!

Use THIS coupon (the $2 frozen entree one) from Healthy Choice to get some free meals at Walmart and cheap meal at Target! You can print this twice per computer.

Also HERE you'll find a pdf coupon for free baby puffs or foods. I have seen these puffs at Target. Even my nearly 3 year old loves these for snacks! Check it out! You can print this several times but you can only use one per customer. Please do not go crazy here, otherwise companies stop promos like this.

If you are a Victoria Secret fan make sure you join their "pink" club. The Frugal Girls have posted about about a coupon for members to get a free pair of undies, no purchase required. I signed up less than a month ago and they put coupons like this out alllll the time! Love it!

And finally go HERE and print this Neosporin Lip Health coupon. These are $2.99 this month at CVS. This $3 coupon makes it free!! You can print this twice per computer.

Yay! New template!

The Template Mama is a great find I stumbled upon today! Cute templates and instructions on how to do some of this stuff yourself. I just wanted to take a second to mention this site because it's so easy and free! Next I'll be working on a button! I've wanted to make one for a while but never had a clue. She has instructions on her blog.

Shaws- Spent $2.76 and $12 back!

Yeah I don't have a dog, but my mom does! So here we have 2 bottles of ginger ale, 6 Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta, 2 hartz boxes of dog bones, a box of pretzels, 3 clorox wipes, and 2 huge bags of Splenda (probably the best deal of the week!). I spent $2.76 and got $12 back for my next purchase, plus a catalina for a free box of milkbones! I saved $52.47!!

I used the catalina's I received from the other day to pay for most of it. Next week has a great deal too! Spend $25 get $10 back on the items on the back page! Use your catalinas from this week to help cut that $25 down. AND it's $25 off of shelf price not sale price...so it's even easier to reach $25 when going by the shelf/full price!!!

Old Navy $15 vests tomorrow!!

As part of their celebration, Old Navy is offering their freeze free vests tomorrow only for $15!!! I suggest getting there early, early, early!!! I've been to a few Old Navy special Saturday sales and it can get crowded. But this is a great deal. Last year the vests were insanely high priced! They are $34.50-$39.50 this year for womens vests!

Don't forget to grab a coupon off of www.oldnavyweekly.com! Any coupon will make this an even better deal!!

There are some deals already on Old Navy's site. Kids fleeces 2/$15 and the kids vests are $15 all week. Tomorrow it will be vests for the whole family!

6pm.com KEEN Sale and More!

Check out 6pm.com for a great KEEN sale! They are awesome quality shoes and plenty of them are 60% off (or more). There is another brand with some shoes up to 94% off! They were super pricey shoes so paying $4.95 for $90 shoes isn't bad!

**Just be careful to read the customer fit rating. I have found that to be very accurate and 6pm doesn't give free return shipping. If your shoes don't fit, you will likely not receive the same shipping on the correct size because the sale will be over.

If you follow the customer fit rating you should be fine. Worst case scenario, sell them on ebay! Why spend $$ on return shipping when you can get your money back on ebay? ;)

Snow White Deals!

Snow White was re-released yesterday and there are some GREAT deals! My favorite is Toys R Us. If you buy $25 in princess items you get a free Snow White baking set (valued at $12.99)! Also I bought my movie yesterday (the release date) and received a $5 gift card as well. Not sure how long that is going on for, but check it out! BTW- TRU often does this with pre-orders (which I did NOT do, but it may have been a release day only thing. Don't know since it was not advertised).

Here is the deal I did:

Snow White dvd/blu-ray: $19.99

Snow White Dress Up Shoes: $5.99

Total= $25.98

Got a free baking set!

-$10 Snow White movie coupon (you can find it disney rewards site or TRU site)

So all 3 items for $16.xx!! And perhaps a $5 gift card back!

I also used a $5/$25 purchase I had, but I had to add an item for some reason. So I grabbed a Littlest Pet Shop for $.49 after everything was said and done.

At the very least you can grab the movie for $9.99 after coupon. You *might* get the gift card too, who knows! But to get all the items I did for only a few dollars more (accounting for the gift card), you can't find a better deal!

Coupons.com Reset First of the Month!

Not only have they reset, but they have added a ton of Playskool/Hasbro coupons! These could be handy for holiday shopping since they do not expired until January! I'll be keeping an eye out to see if there are any good black friday deals for these.

CVS Free Neosporin Lip Health!

The Thrifty Mama posted that CVS has a clip free coupon for Neosporin Lip Health (Daily Hydration or Overnight Lip Therapy) regularly $5.49, but $2.99 after clip free coupon.

To make that deal even better....there is a $3 off printable (found on the link I provided). This means free lip stuff! Woohoo!!
