Good Deal on Stayfree Pads, Mentos Gum and Crest!

CVS has a deal going this week where if you buy 1 pack of stayfree pads, you get 2.00 in extra care bucks! The only thing that makes this deal better is that there are some clearanced pads for 2.33. That means you only pay .33 for a pack! If it happens like it did with me, one kind rang up 1.56. That means they paid me .44 to take the pads! Great deal if I do say so myself! Why not check your CVS and see if they are doing the same? Check under the extra care buck tags to see clearance tags!

Also, do any of you have lots of those Mentos gum coupons hanging around? They were for 1.00 off 1. Right now, the mentos gum is 1.69 at CVS. If you buy 3, you get 1.00 in extra care bucks. Use a coupon on all 3 and you score the gum for about .33 per bottle. My kids love this gum so I figured it was worth it!

Also, they have some crest toothpaste that ends up being .88 after extra care bucks. I had coupons for 1.00 off. Makes it into a money maker!

Happy shopping at CVS this week.

Free Vaccum Cleaner!

I just scored a free vacuum cleaner on amazon.com by using the infamous SWAGBUCKS! I have been saving and finally got enough to buy one that I think will work well. You too can get free stuff just by searching the Internet through swagbucks. Just use swagbucks instead of google! You can usually win 1-2 swagbucks daily just by searching and sometimes the "swag guy" even gives out free codes for free swagbucks! It's well worth it! I have a new vacuum coming!!! :)Sign up here today and begin your search! I'm sure there are some prizes you would love to score too!

Okay, I try Walgreens but sometimes, things don't work out as I think they should. Like last night, I did the 3/11.00 Pepsi deal. They would give you 3.00 in Register Rewards if you bought 3. That brought it down to 3/8.00. I had 3/2.00 coupons which brought it down to 3./2.00. Not a bad deal for 3 12 packs of Pepsi. I actually paid 3/5.00 because the rr printed out to use on another order. So, I did my next 3/11.00. Used 2/2.00 off and the 1/3.00 rr from the previous order. That made it 3/4.00. I expected another 3.00 rr to spit out because it was another deal but it did not! When I asked the girl, she said it was their policy not to print the register reward deals if you used a register reward!?! Huh? I think it has always worked before and told her so but she wouldn't do anything about it. So, anyway, I didn't get as good of a deal as I thought I would so was bummed but, what can you do? Just a word to the wise though, be careful at Walgreens. I guess I'm not familiar enough with them to know exactly how everything works? I did get Garniar Fructis shampoo for .50 per bottle though so, though I had thought of not going back, I might give it a whirl? I'm just going to be more careful and more wary of their register reward deals! :)

Good Deal!

Last night I went to Tops. Only went in for a couple of necessities and came out with a couple of extras. They had some really good deals on their clearance rack I got . . .
2 Herbal Essence Shampoos (1.89 each used 3.00 off 2 coupon - paid .39 each!)
2 Herbal Essence Hairspray (same as above!)
2 dozen eggs .88 per dozen
2 boxes of Tops Cocoa Puffs cereal 1.12 each

Total spent: 6.02

I thought that was a great deal!

Combine clearance with coupons and you get some great deals!!! :)

25.00 CVS gift card giveaway

Go here for a chance to win a 25.00 gift card!


Go here for a chance to win a skuut. This is a bike without wheels or pedals. Kind of neat!

Snuggly mat giveaway

Go here for a chance to win a snuggly mat. It is a soft sleeping bag! I know my son would love this with his love for soft fuzzy blankets! It would be a great March 23rd birthday gift for him! Keep your fingers crossed for me and go try to win one for yourself. If I don't win, maybe you will and you can give it to him for his birthday!!! :)

Some great opportunities.

Want some great opportunities to earn some free things such as gift cards or other fun things? I have found 2 great sites that will help you with this.

The first one is Swagbucks. I have won $35.00 worth of Amazon.com gift cards with this site. You simply use it just like you would google. Instead of going to google, go to swagbucks. Search as you normally would and earn BUCKS for it! These bucks can then be turned in for prizes or gift cards! If you don't use Swagbucks, you are missing out on a really cool free thing! Why not go over there today and sign up? I think you even get 3 free swagbucks just for signing up! While you are there, tell them that making out like a bandit sent you! :)

The other site I like is My Points. I have 1,025 points in this account right now. Prizes start at about 1400 points so I am almost there! All I have really done with this site is I have read their e-mails they send me. You get (usually) 5 points for each e-mail you read. Now, I know, that doesn't seem like much when you are talking 1400 points but, I have only been at this for between 2-3 months. Soon, I will have a restaurant gift card and I have not really done too much to get it! That is cool because that means some night I won't have to cook! Now doesn't that sound good? Why don't you join me get get your own my points account? Leave me a comment including your e-mail and I will get you a referral to this wonderful place!

Chance at free grocery money!

Go here for a chance to win 100.00 in grocery money. Who couldn't use some free money now?

Postol Christmas Get Together

Two weeks ago tomorrow, we went to the Postol Family Christmas get-together. Here are some pictures from that. They made a ginger-bread house and of course had lots of food! As you can see, the master chef was in charge of creating the ginger-bread house!

Walgreen Deals for 1/26-1/31

Some "deals" I have found for next week at Walgreens are:

1. Quilted Northern - 6.49 for 12 double rolls. There have been many coupons out there for 1.00 off so use the one in the flyer as well as the 1.00 and it will only be 5.49 for 12 rolls!

2. Campbell's soups are .69 with in-store coupon. Use one of the many that have been around to make this a better deal!

3. I can't read the "fine print" but Reynolds aluminum foil is .89. I did not have a coupon for this last time but have got one now so will get it for free!

4. Make sure you use the buy one get 1 coupon for Walgreens cough drops. That makes them .50 per bag and you can use them at this time of year!

5. Excedrine is b1g1 next week. Go here and here to print 2.00 coupons. You should be able to print both coupons twice. I don't know the actual price on these but with using 2 coupons per b1g1 purchase, they should be really cheap or maybe even free!?!

6. Go here and or here to get a coupon for Colgate (1.00 off from 1 and it only prints 1 time). Colgate is on sale for .99 after register rewards this week so . . . free toothpaste.

7. Puffs on sale for .89. There have been some coupons circulating that would possibly make these a deal!!!

Free Reach Flosser

Go here for a free sample flosser from Reach.

I Won!

I frequent a full cup quite regularly. It helps me to figure out deals for CVS, Walgreens and Tops each week. There is a link to it in my sidebar. Anyway, I have been in a contest the past couple of weeks for Tops. Whoever found the most deals at Tops over the course of that time, would get an envelope full of coupons and there is going to be 2 coupons for free items! Well, I won!!!! I am so excited. I worked hard for it and ate, slept and drank Tops during those two weeks! Got some great deals there myself so, guess it worked! I was so excited that I figured I could "brag" about it here! :) Go on over to a full cup and enter a contest that maybe you could win too!

My CVS Trip January 12

Okay, if you have a CVS by you and do not use it, it is high time you change and begin to do so! Today I went to CVS. I bought all of the things listed here and paid a whopping 3.26. The kicker is, I went with 9.99 in extra care buck and left with 13.99. That means my stuff was actually free plus, I made .74! Now, can you go wrong with getting all of this stuff plus earning 74 cents? If they pay me to take it, I will do it! Never know when a soy joy bar will come in handy!!!! The one thing that you can barely see is the throat cooler pops. They are made with honey and the kids like them! Everything else is pretty well self-explanatory! Hey, if I enjoy myself and am making a little bit of money, isn't it worth it?

Thanks to Shepherd's Savings for alerting about the deal!

Some Saving Advice

I have only been at this saving money thing for about a month but I have found that we are eating a lot better and everything seems to be going farther. Below are some techniques that I have found for saving money.

1. Use coupons! Even if you do not get a Sunday paper, you can get a lot of printable coupons right on the Internet. In the past, I have not used coupons because I did not use name brands and I always figured that it was way more expensive anyway. Well, speaking from experience, coupons make name brand affordable, and even many times, it cost less than the no name brand so, don't let a generic brand fool you! The best way to get the bang for your buck it to match coupons up with current sales at the store. Yes, this does take a lot of preparation for going to the store but makes it worth it. On just about every shopping trip, I come home and show my husband the item or items that I got for free using a coupon and sales! I will list some of the best coupon printing sites that I use on my sidebar. Hopefully it will be of help to you!

2. Check the "reduced meat" section. I did this just yesterday and today. I got a boneless pork roast for 1.32 a pound. I also got some pork chops for less than 1.00 per pound and 9 about 8 inch Mild Sausages for less than $5.00! Thought that was pretty good. Also, if you have a super center Wal-mart, you can get big 10-lb packages of chicken leg and thighs. Divide it up into meal sized portions and you have a great deal scoring in at between .50 and .60 per pound!

3. Watch how your prices ring up and that the coupons get taken off correctly. Classic example of this today. K-mart had shoes on sale for 5.00. They rang up 14.99. Not a good thing if you are trying to save money! I did not realize it until I was in the car at another store but hurried right back to get my money back. They were real good about it. On the same order, I was getting 12 packs of Coke for 1.67. They would not accept all of my coupons so I told the girl to take the orders off. When I got to the car, I had 2 extra 12 packs on my receipt and they were 3.67 each! Thankfully I did go back for a refund on both items for a total refund of almost 18.00. Now, I am ashamed to admit it but in days gone by before I was really working at saving money, there would be a good chance that I did not even look at the receipt and I would have lost that much money!!!! Check to make sure that everything rings up correctly!

Anyway, you are probably lucky if you are still reading this so, I won't bore you anymore. I may post other hints later but I think that is way enough for now. Try to implement some of these and be on your journey to save money!
