Toys R Us

Many deals in the Toys R Us circular this week. But the one I wanted to highlight was that ALL video games are buy one get one 50% off. This is a pretty good deal!
Also, if you order online, enter code  HOLIDAYTOYS to save $15 off $100 purchase.


Looks like a lot of good deals in the Walgreens circular this week. Alot of store coupons too! Remember, at Walgreens you can combine a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon. And another tip is, if you do a buy one get on free, you can use two coupons (one for each item) and the total will come off of the one you pay for since the other one is free.

More CVS deals

So, I went t CVS today and got close to $50 worth of stuff and they paid me again. Here is how it broke down:
2- crest toothpastes (on sale 2/4.50 but you get back 2.50 ecb so its like getting 2/$2)
2- Pure Amber body washes (on sale 4.99 each but get back 4 ecb each.. so like getting 2/1.98)
1- 4pc spa set (14.99)
1- tranquility water fountain (5.99)
1- tribune star (1.75) (Gotta have my coupons!)
1- Christmas pet elf costume (2.99)

So then I give them my 5/$25 coupon (-5.00)
my $10 extra care buck from last week (-10.00)
and today was friends and family day so Isaved an extra 30 % (Thanks to my SIL- Bonnie!) (-7.20)

my total with taxis 19.86
so I used the remainder of  gift card (-5.28)
and paid $14.58 out of pocket

but I happened to find a tag on the spa set saying it was on sale for 9.99 and $3 ecb back but it was suppose to have been removed last week but they honored it since it was there so, I got back $5 cash and my $3 ecb

meaning... I got back
$13.50 in extra care bucks and $5 in cash.... I only pad out $14.58 so I came out $3.92 ahead!
Did I ever say that I LOVE shopping at CVS?? Got some great filler Christmas gifts and they paid me to shop in thier store again!!

Free stuff and almost free stuff

So, as I said in the Kmart post, when they double coupons, you can get many things free and some very very inexpensive. Most of the stuff in the pictures below I was able to get free but a few of the things I did have to pay up to $3 for. Got these deals at either at Kmart, Walgreens or CVS. This is a "stash" I have in the bottom of one of my bathroom cabinets. We have used many of the items already but its amazing how it has added up just since the end of summer! Can't wait to do this again starting in January!! For those of you new to couponing, I did want to share that I use a 13 pocket organizer for my coupons, it fits very well in my purse and I always have my coupons on me when I shop. I am considering buying another organizer so I can seperate the receipts for each month and see how much I saved each month and then all together at the end of next year! Anyhow, enjoy the pics! Its really not hard or time consuming once you get the hang of things!

Sunday Deals... Kroger

Kroger didn't have a good sale this week as Thanksgiving fell during this circular but I was able to get all of the following for $21.05 by using coupons (had one for almost everything and some uploaded to my Kroger card) and a gift certificate. My favorite buy was the two HUGE rolls of cookie dough (30oz. each). They were on sale for 2/$5 but I had  $1 off two uploaded to my Kroger card and then $1 off two paper coupon. Making them $1.50 each! Can't beat that!

Sunday Deals... CVS

So, below is what I was able to get at CVS...after coupons (had one for everything except the car magazine) and extra care bucks the cost was $9.74. I paid this with the balance on one of the free $25 gift cards I had. I then got a $10 extra care buck back. Meaning I got all this free with .26 in overage!

ANYTIME you do online shopping, check out for a code. I have found a code there for every single purchase I have made on a stores website! You could score anything from free shipping to 10%,15% or even 20% off your total. ( These percentages come off sale prices too!!)

Bath and Body Works

Bath and Body Works is offerig $1 shipping today with a $30 purchase! Good way to use those coupon codes and not even have to leave the house for a little Christmas shopping!

$1 shipping code: SHIP1 (this code is valid for today only!)
$10 off a $40 or more purchase code: 1419

Also don't forget about the deal on the Signature Collections! Buy 3, get  free OR Buy 2, get 1 free!

So here would be an example of a good deal:
3-body spray ($12 x3=$36)
2-body spray (FREE)
1-Shimmer body lotion (normaly 6.50 but on sale for 5.00) (need at least a $4 filler to get $40 for the $10 off)
So, this totals $41 +tax
minus $10
Brings it to $31 +tax
shipping charge $1
Total price: $32                                So,you have $66.50 in product and paid $32 plus tax shipped!

Or if you wanted the $10.50 items here is a deal that will work:
4- Signature 10.50 items ( 42.00)
2- Signatue 10.50 items (FREE)
Total is $42.00 plus tax
minus 10.00
Brings the total to 32.00 + tax
shipping $1
Your grand total being $33.00+ tax for $63.00 worth of product!

Hope this helps someone save a little money!

Kmart/Sears shopping

If you shop at Kmart or Sears, you'll want to go over to and check out this new program they are starting! I never really shopped at Kmart too much before. But, for those of you who didn't already know it, Kmart doubles coupons that are up to $2 in value! They normally do it for a week at a time. You can score a lot of free stuff by doing this! I'll post a pic tomorrow of all the stuff I stocked up on  by getting stuff free or very near free with the double coupons. (And I only started this during the summer!)

Staples deal~~FREE STUFF!

So heres is the deal, $25 free in sharpie products, $25.98 in Duracell batteries and in the end, it will all be free!!
Here is how you do it...

add $25 in sharpie products to your cart at
add 2 of the 20 packs of Duracell batteries ( I am going to do AA & AAA since Christmas is coming!)
now,you'll need to add the coupon code for the sharpies : 96140
If you are not already a Staples Rewards member, you'll want to sign up for this before completing this transaction. You are suppose to get 100% of the price back for your battery purchase ( I believe limit 2 but not positive at this point) back on your rewards in January.
This is over $50 so it will ship free! So, you'll be the $25.98 out of pocket but then in Jan. you'll get it back in rewards!! The code isn't working right at the current time but it may go active at midnight. If not, you can always cal the 800 number and give them your order. Make sure you have the item numbers of what you want to order, your coupon code, and your staples rewards member number!

Ok guys, I may have to wait until tomorrow to blog about my savings today. I took pics to show you what all I got. Just have alot of other stuff to do right at the moment. However, I did want to tell you all to go on over to and she's posting cyber Monday deals that are popping up. I will post anything I find that she doesn't mention on hers. So, stay tuned if you are an online shopper! I'll be checking out the online deals starting here in about an hour.

CVS Shopping

CVS is a great place to shop for deals, esp. with the extra care bucks and $5 off $25 purchases that print at the end of the reciepts!
ok so here is the shopping list:
2-colgate toothbrushes...price is 2.99 each but get $2.00 extra care buck back for each (limit 2) 2-colgate toothpaste...price is 2.88 each but get $2.00 extra care buck back for each (limit 2)
1-Phillips ear buds...6.99 each but get $6.99 care buck back (limit 1)
1- Vaseline infusion lotion...7.99 each but get $7.99 care buck back (limit 1)
So, as you can see, this won't cost me much at all.
Let me tell you how I got PAID to shop at their store!

So this total comes to 26.72
minus the 5/25coupon - 5.00
minus manufact. coupns -3.00
minus extra care buck -5.00
total to be paid will be $13.72 plus tax
I will be using a $25 gift card that I got free to make this purchase
**see below how I scored 2- $25 gift cards free**
So, 13.72 plus tax off my card but with all the extra care bucks, I will be getting $22.98 back. So that is an overage of over $9.00. So, I have just gotten all of the above free, and made a profit of around $9.00 Not too often you get paid to shop. I LOVE doing this!

Ok, now onto the free $25 gift cards. I received a thing in the mail from CVS that had two coupons on it. $25 gift card with a new or transferred prescription. So, when we had two prescriptions to fill, we scored $50 free in gift cards!

Another deal we recently got was the MP3/Video player CVS currently has on sale. Original cost was 39.99. Here is how I snagged this for less:
Sale price 24.99
used a 5/25 coupon -5.00
used some extra care bucks -2.00
17.99 but the deal gets better.... I got another $5 ecb back for this product.
So, I ended up getting it for $12.99 plus tax!!

New Blog

Ok, so I am trying my hand at blogging. I am new to this so please feel free to offer any suggestions you feel will help me. My page will look a bit generic until I get the hang of things.
The purpose of this blog spot is to share deals with others. I will post deals I get or deals that I find on this site with the hopes of helping another save a little money. Today, getting the most for your money is a necessity. I rarely pay full price for anything I buy anymore. I have already added some website links for printing coupons and there are two where you can upload coupons to a card (ex. Kroger card) for additional savings. Look for my next post sometime tomorrow. I will share some of the basics I do to help you start saving.
