we need votes!!

well, I have been terribly lazy with posting deals here (sorry about that) and clipping my own coupons. My stack is now about 2 feet tall and I just can't bring myself to clip and organize them. I still use them it just takes more work! I got 12 travel sized pert plus, 3 secret clinical trials, 5 gain 40ct fabric softener sheets and a tub of hillshire farm lunchmeat at walmart the other day for $2.44. But it takes a lot more work because they are not organized. anyway.....maybe someday I will get motivated :) We NEED your vote!! We are trying to win Aces playoff tickets and are in second place right now. The voting ends tomorrow (tueday) and you can email and put "vote for #13" in the subject line. It will only take a minute and i really appreciate it!!

target and walgreen deals

It might be horrible outside but I ventured out anyway to use some of the coupons expiring tomorrow. I want you to be can save money using coupons and a little bit of planning. Now, you probably will think after seeing my list, who needs all that stuff? Well, maybe me, maybe someone in need, I don't know. But if it's free, or really cheap I'm getting it. Plus, that is more money left over for "real" groceries when you get health/beauty and misc stuff free.

a few things...

I will do all the deals tomorrow but a few things I wanted to let you know about.
Carrs thru tuesday only
eating right boneless skinless chicken breast buy one get one free that is about $1.75 a pound (great deal) stocking up on this :)

cocktail tomatoes in ad coupon $1.49
i can't believe it's not butter in ad coupon $2.49 BOGO FREE coupon in unilever...think it was the 1/30 set

Target has a promo right now on frozen food. Buy any 7 items and get a $5 gift card at the register. SOOOOO....I went crazy, and they were out of some stuff so I will be going back later in the week. got 29 items (1 extra, multiples of 7 remember) and after coupons and figuring in the gift cards I received I paid $10.11. The cashier did give me an extra $5 gift card....think he just wanted me to go away :) so if you wanted to repeat this it would be $15.11 but still only .52 per item. I got frozen veggies and rice, motz. cheese sticks, chicken burritos, chicken sandwiches, a few frozen pizzas and a half gallon of ice cream. Not going to lie, it was some work and figuring, plus 3 transactions, but I made it work and am super happy with the deals I got! I did get some other things too, but I saved $103 on all my orders

amazon deals and target trip

Bundle of fun this Friday evening........

Today I was at Target and I saved over $55 and spent $19.98 . that was a great trip! It takes time and practice, but the reward is great :)

Now onto this.... has a few great grocery deals right now. They usually don't last long at a low price and shoot back up randomly so if interested act fast! I got chicken of the sea 48 pack tuna in water for $21.32, emerald peanuts 4.5 oz canister 12 pack for $6.72 and Fruity pebbles 11 oz pack of 4 for 7.64. Shipping was free with super saver. You do have to be patient though as these items won't ship for about 5 weeks but I don't need it right now anyway and the price was great!! .44 per can of tuna, .56 per canister of nuts and 1.91 per box of cereal. Now granted, I could have gotten cereal a lot cheaper (.25 a box today at Target) but my kids like THIS cereal and I hardly ever buy cereal they like so this is a treat I guess.

Coupons from the last 2 weeks are here. 4 inserts for $3 including 2 free breakfast subs from subway when you buy any drink and a $3 gain fabric softener coupon. Let me know if you them and will hold onto one for you!

New coupons coming!!

I have 1/30 coupons available for $3. four inserts of high value coupons

2/6 and 2/13 will be here Thursday or Friday. When I get them I will update this post with the price but I am thinking around $3 for both weeks since the value of these coupons wasn't as high as the 1/30 bunch. Let me know if you want them and I will be at church this weekend and at MOM's on Tuesday.

Don't get discouraged if your couponing isn't going as well as you like. It takes time and practice as well as a good stock of coupons.
