Be proud of me. I emptied my coupon box, made new dividers, threw out everything expired and cut new coupons. It's nice and neat.


I needed to pick up some things at Walgreens yesterday, too.

I bought:
Robitussin to go $2.49 ( free after RR)
1 Glade fabric spray on sale for $2.99- $2 coupon (get $1 RR back) so free after RR
3 clearance toys
4 Coke 12 packs on sale 4/$10, used 2 $1 coupons, so 4/$8
1 Rimmel blush clearanced to $1.79- $1 coupon
1 Chapstick (fresh effects $2.99 and FREE after RR)

After previous RR ($17) and coupons, I paid about $6.50 (I don't have the receipt with me to verify amount) and got $6.50 back
I could have done better, but I really needed those Cokes. lol

There is a deal on Dove shampoo..they are $4.99 BOGOF. If you buy 8, you get $10 back. If you have 8 Dove shampoo coupons, this will be the deal for you.

************************** (link to left)has Rite Aid coupons for $/$. The amount is regional, so after you use your zip code, try some others. These are great to use for rebate items.

************************* had some printable BOGOF on the small Glade candles. The site was down just now when I checked to get you the link, but hopefully it will be back soon. Print these because Glade deals are fantastic lately. They make great gifts, and after Christmas, some of the scents have been known to go on clearance. (I'm not sure about the expiration date of the coupons)


From 6PM to midnight on Halloween, get a free black taco at Taco Bell. 1 per person. Details here.

Another money saving meal.... I bought 2 packages of Kraft Deluxe mac and cheese dinner..added 1 lb ground beef, 1 pack of taco mix. Voila'. You can also dress it up with drained and rinsed black beans, chopped tomatoes, or a number of other things.

Have a money saving meal? Email me the recipe along with your first name and last initial, and I may feature it on the blog!


I was at Lowe's yesterday and noticed a 7 pack of lightbulbs (CFL) and it said on the box there was a coupon for $5/$50 at Lowes inside. If you are already buying bulbs, then pick those up. Black Friday is coming soon.


FREEBIES: (these could disappear at any time!) PLEASE remember to set up a "junk" free email for your freebies, etc.

Mission tortilla coupon. I use a lot of these. Remeber to use your back button to print it twice!


Last week, I wrote to Boston Market Frozen dinners about their packaging. I opened one and the tray was busted to pieces. I got a coupon for a free one and several .75 coupons.

I am going to write some more companies this weekend.


I have to tell you about a new product I love. It's Arm and Hammer dryer sheets..I think they are called Total Care. They are slightly damp with softener and you pop them in your dryer like regular dryer sheets. Here's the deal..I love a "laundry" smell. These have that. AND when I did a load of towels and put them away..they stayed scented for DAYS. I love that!!! Arm and Hammer usually has coupons on their website an I will be buying these for sure in the future!


Have a great shopping day!!
