Sneak Peak - True North Snacks $1.50 Money Maker!

Here's a Sneak Peak for you so you can prepare for a great deal!

Starting 9/13 True North Snacks will be on special at Walgreens.
$3 each with a $3 RR on each purchase, making them FREE!
The Publix "Making Triathlon Cool Again" booklet has a $1.50 MC for ANY True North snack!
Making these a $1.50 Money Maker!

I believe these are only available at Florida Publix stores.
They were still available at my Publix a few days ago.
Looks like I know what we'll be snacking on for most of September!

FREE & Super Cheap @ Wags 8/30

So here is the final tally for my trips to Wags today.
I actually went to 3 different Wags. Why do you ask?
I really wanted several of the razors & I didn't feel good about buying more than one at each store. I know how grumpy I get when I go to a store and they are out of something. Luckily there are 3 Wags all 5 minutes from me!

Here is the run down...

3 - 6 blade Razors $3.99 each
(Get back $3.99 Register Reward) = FREE

2 - Theraflu $4.99 each
(Used $2 off MC found HERE)
(Used $2 off Wags in Healthy Savings booklet)
(Get back $3 RR) = $2 Money Maker for each!

1 Colgate 360 Toothbrush $2.99
(Used 1 .40 off MC in 8/30 SS)
(Get back $2.99 RR) = .40 Money Maker!

1 - Rembrandt Toothpaste $5
(Used $1 off any Rembrandt product)
(Get back $5 RR) = $1 Money Maker!

1 Carefree Panty liners $1.99
(Used $1 off Carefree SS 8/30)
(Get back $2 RR) = $1 Money Maker!

2 - Reach Floss $2.99
(Used $1 off Reach Floss or Toothbrush)
(Get $2 RR) = FREE

Remember when you use RR to pay they are just like MC.
You can't have more MC than items (Wags coupons don't count) so that's where fillers come in. Also, if you use a RR from a manufacturer (like Colgate let's say) and you use it to purchase another Colgate item that is supposed to produce RRs you risk the RR not printing out.
Always use a RR from one manufacturer to pay for an item made by a different manufacturer if you want to guarantee your RR will print!

So on to today's fillers...
2 - Pocket Folders $.20 each w/ Wags in ad coupon
1 - Envelopes $.59 w/ Wags in ad coupon
1 - Dozen eggs $.99
1 - Travel Tissue $.29

My plan is to go ahead and pick up one more of all the free or money making items at another Wags. I'm not kidding when I say that there is a Wags every 3 miles here. Makes these deals even sweeter!

FREE & Cheap @ CVS 8/30

Not a big week for me at CVS.
I think Wags, K-mart and Target will keep me plenty busy this week.
So here's what we got on the CVS run...

Glade Reed Diffuser Fragrance Collection $6.99
(Used $3 off All You Mag August, Get $6.99 in ECB) = $3 Money Maker!!

Bausch & Lomb Renu Contact Lens Solution $7.99 each
(Used $3/12 Eye Care in Readyfill Booklet)
(Used 2 - $2 off HERE, Get $6 ECB) = $1.49 Each

So I used my profit from the reed diffuser to get my Renu for free. Pretty Nifty!

*The printable Renu coupon expires 8/31.
You could also use $1 off from SS 8/9 and they would be $2 each.
* You can also go to Red Plum for a coupon for the Glade.
It was $2 off a couple of days ago but there is a new $3 available!

Target Ice Cream Party at My House!

Now that we have breakfast taken care of how about dessert? Here is another fabulous Target deal that could result in an impromptu ice cream party... hmmm... there's a Labor Day idea!

Edy's Ice cream will be $2.50 for a 1.5 qt starting Sunday
When you purchase 5 you get a $5 Target Gift Card
*Haagen-Dazs 14.0z and Nestle 4ct Drumsticks are also part of this promotion

So here is my master plan...
Buy 5 Edy's Ice creams (Light Slow Churned)
Use 5 $1 off Edy's Ice cream Target Internet q
Use 5 $1 off Edy's Slow Churned Light 8/23 RP
= $2.50 Total
(- my $5 Target Gift Card) =
$2.50 Money Maker!

*I know the Edy's coupons on 8/23 was not in all papers (or you may not want the light ice cream) so without the MC you'd still end up paying $2.50 for 5 tubs of ice cream!

A Very Special FREE Breakfast!!!!!!!

I am downright giddy with excitement right now at the deal coming up at Target this Sunday. It's a Fuel for School Mega Money Maker I'll call

A Very Special Breakfast

Part #1

Now put all these Kelloggs deals together and you are looking at 10 items that qualify for the Fuel for School Rebate.
So if you buy them all in one transaction you are looking at

Total Bill of $14.90
(- $10 in Gift Cards)
(-$10 in Fuel for School Rebate)
= $5.10 Money Maker!!!

So you just got paid $5.10 to purchase

4 boxes of cereal, 6 boxes of cereal bars and a gallon of milk.

A Very Special Breakfast indeed!

FREE Reese's @ CVS

Reese's are on sale right now 2/$1 at CVS. If you use the coupon from 8/23 (this past Sunday) for .55 off any Reese's product you'll get yourself some FREE yummy chocolate. Remember the coupon is more than the product so your register will beep and the cashier will have to adjust it.

I personally am a big fan on not having the register beep so I purchased an additional chocolate to prevent the beeping so...
I bought 7 and used 6 coupons. Cost was $3.50 and the coupons equaled $3.30 so I paid .20 for all 7 chocolates but no beeping!

If you were lucky enough to have 10 coupons you could buy 11 chocolates and they would all be free and no beeping! I'm going to have to order more of these coupons since I'm sure they'll be on sale again somewhere between now and Halloween!

Publix - $100 of groceries for $20!

This was a particularly good Publix shopping day! I had a ton of coupons for B1G1 items and was able to get things I needed at some of the lowest prices I've ever been able to get them at. I even bought a huge bottle of wine, make up, cat litter and Starbucks ice cream in this shop!

All in all I was very happy with my purchase and my little receipt that states
"Your Savings at Publix $82.07".

Kmart Doubles Part #6 The Finale

I am officially done with K-mart double coupons, after all I know that after a one week break, I get to do it all over again! When I went to my new favorite K-mart I found a new coupon book full of MC over by customer service. That enabled me to get some seriously cheap batteries and free deodorant - like I really needed more deodorant! :-) Here's what we got...

Bic Silky Touch Razors 10pk + 4 bonus $3.29 each
(Used $2 off, 7/19 SS, doubled to $3.29) = FREE

2 Whiskas Cat Food $4.99

Final Total OOP $3.18

Total Saved $26.27

Total Saved at Kmart this week $189.12
Total Spent = $10.99

*I already counted the $5 Cat in my total yesterday so I used my pre-Cat total to arrive at my Total Spent. Otherwise I'd be counting it twice.
I decided I'd go ahead and spend my last $5 from the Renuzit deal since I have no plans on going back to K-mart till August 30th for Double Coupons. So, I bought a pair of shoes for work.

These were on clearance for $6.99.
When I got up to the register they rang up $4.89!
The only problem was I needed to reach $5 to use my Renuzit credit.
What's the cheapest thing I can find by the register? Snickers!
Snickers $.89 - bringing my total to a whopping $ .78!!!!

Kmart - Double Coupons - MONEY MAKER!

Let the fun begin!

Here is installment #1 of what will be many, many purchases made during K-mart double coupons week. If you need to see the rules for this promotion click HERE. The cashiers and the Kmart I went to had absolutely no idea what I was talking about and I had to show them the ad. My Kmart was really empty and not one other person there was using coupons!

4 - Neutra Air - B1G1 - $2.67 each
(Used 2 MC for $1.50 off, doubled to $2.67 each) = FREE

3-Greenworks Wipes - $3.49 each
(Used 3 $2 MC in Publix Greenwise Mag, doubled to $3.49 each) = FREE

1 Renuzit Crystals Starter - $5.50
(Used $2 MC, doubled to $4) = $1.50

1 Renuzit Crystals Refill - $5.50
(Used $2 MC, doubled to $4) = $1.50

3 Renuzit Spray - $1.89 each
(Used $1 MC, doubled to $1.89) = FREE

Total Out of Pocket $3.00 But...Received $5 off next purchase any amount =

$2 Money Maker!!!!

I love getting paid to bring this stuff home! The 5$ was for a promotion they are running where if you spend $15 in participating products (in my case Renuzit) you got $5 off your next purchase. If you spend $10 you get $3. So that was a nice bonus!

*Now keep in mind I don't figure in tax when I calculate these, taxes are different everywhere so that would be too confusing. It was still a Money Maker for me even after taxes but your mileage will vary.

Last Minute Trip to WAGS for some FREE stuff!

* You could also buy a Reach toothbrush instead of dental floss or Listerine in this deal. You can mix & match depending on what you need & have coupons for. There are some $1 off coupons for the Listerine but the ones I had were all for the larger size so $.50 was it for me.

FREE & Cheap at CVS 8/9

I was a couple of days late getting in for the new sales at CVS this week. I was a little worried I wouldn't find what I needed but turns out I had no problems. It was a bit of a slow week for deals but I still think I did ok.

$8.99 (-$5.00 IC, Click Here for coupon-$2 Extra Care Bucks ) = $1.99

For the $5/ $25 you just have to take a brief quiz on Readyfill which I actually thought was interesting. Now my only challenge is making it till Halloween without eating all this candy! Wish I had more of those coupons.

Couponing is Good for the Community!

This morning I dropped off a book bag full of school supplies to a local charity that helps kids from needy families prepare for going back to school. The total I spent for all of these supplies was .17 cents and that was for the pack of highlighters, everything else was free. It can now go to kids who may not be ready for school otherwise.

It feels great to be able to help out, a little like Robin Hood. :-)

FREE Soap, FREE Cereal & Cheap DVDs

I ran out to Target for trip one and picked up some FREE soap and $3 DVDs.

Soft Soap $3 (- $2 Target Q, -$1 IC from = FREE

DVDs $5 (- $2 Sony Coupons available HERE ) = $3

I was so excited about my FREE soap that I decided to pick up some more.

I got 2 more FREE soaps (one for my mom), 2 hefty zip bags I needed @ .87 cents each after a .20 peelie, and the super surprise of the night...


Yes, apparently my SuperTarget had restocked since Sunday, they had been out of the Kashi for over a week, maybe two. I still had some Kashi coupons and decided to use 4 to get 2 for me and 2 for mom (since I've now got her hooked on the stuff too). I could have taken more but I wanted to make sure there was more for other couponers. :-) Remember you can get the Kashi $1 off coupon on the Target website. Have Fun!

Walgreens Coupons & .49 cent razor cartridges

Stopped into Walgreens and found a great deal on Soleil razors cartridges in their clearance. I had one Soleil coupon left that was about to expire that I was able to use. I think there is another coupon for this coming up soon so be on the look out for it or you could go HERE to print out a coupon coupon. The new Soleil razors have 4 blades and so the ones with 3 blades are being marked down. I also picked up some packing supplies for .12 cents each after the .50 off any Scotch packing supplies in last weeks Red Plum.

Soleil razor refills on clearance $3.49 (-$3 MC) = .49 each
Packing supplies (bubble wrap, mailing tubes) $.62 (-.50 MC) = .12 each

Also. there is a Walgreens magazine "Diabetes and You" that has some coupons in it. I always grab this magazine, it's free and usually in the waiting area of the pharmacy. I've gotten some high value Fiber One coupons in here in the past.

This edition includes
$2.00 off any Benefiber product
$1.50 on any 2 Colgate Total Toothpaste 6 oz or larger
$2.00 off any biotene (excludes trial size)
$1.00 on any Finest Natural Chromium Picolinate
$2.00 on any Walgreens by Ace brace

These are MC but some do say use at Walgreens or other such wording on them. I think they'd probably go through the registers at other stores with no problem, it'll be a cashier or manager discretion situation most likely.

I also found some coupons for $1.00 off any Tylenol product (excludes trial size) by the pharmacy too. Happy coupon hunting!
