Drugstore goodies

Man, there are a lot of things going on this week!

Walgreens has Air Wick's 50% off. Using the $4 coupon from this month should make them free.

Listerine Zero is $2.99 with the in-ad coupon. Use the $2 coupon here, and the $1 coupon from the August booklet to make it free. You will need 2 small fillers for this!

Assuming they are the correct size (and I'm not sure because the coupon states ml. What in the heck?) If you have 3 of the $2 Crest mouthwash coupons, Crest whitening is 3/$9 with a $4RR, making a $1 profit after RR


At Rite Aid:

Pilot Easy Touch pens are 3/$3. If you can print 3 of these coupons (you can probably print 2 from your computer, then another from another computer), you can use 3 of them to make them free, then there is a $1/3 single check rebate, and a $1/3 UP reward, making a profit of $2!

Always, Carefree, or Kotex pantyliners are .99. There is a coupon for Carefree here, and there were just coupons out for Kotex in the August 8th Smartsource.

Kerosol Foot ointment is $6.99 with a $6 single check rebate. There is a $1 printable here, and I think there was a $2 coupon out in June, and in this month's issue of Woman's Day. There is also a form here to get dry feet therapy socks with purchase of 2, but the rebate from RA is only good once. (purchase must be made before 8/28)

2 Glade Lasting Impressions or Sense and Sprays $10, use 2 $3 coupons=$4-$3 ECB, and get 2 Glades for $1


I made a quick Kroger trip Friday because my $4 coupon was about to expire. The best deals I got:

Schick Hydro Razor $5.99-$5 coupon, -$4 e-coupon =$3.01 profit
2 So Be's .99 (.49 with mega deal) used a B1G1F coupon, it took off the .99, making them both free

Kroger deals!!

I went yesterday, because...well...a big sale draws me in. Not only was there the mega sale, but there is a 4 day sale through Saturday where certain General Mills/Quaker/Betty Crocker snack products are 50% off.
Here's what I got:

2 Fiber One cereal bars (used the coupon from this past week's paper, but now I think there was also a loadable that I missed out on. I'll need to do that again)- $1.84 each
1 Fiber One cereal $2.14-coupon from past week
2 Quaker Life Cereal- $1.42 each (I had $1/2 coupon that came from an oatmeal box)
1 Honey Nut cheerios $2.07 (I had a .50 coupon that doubled)
3 Febreze set and fresh ($1.50 after mega sale discount, had $1.50 coupons)
3 Cover Girl brow pencils (.87 each after discount, used 3 $1 coupons)
2 Gillette body washes ($1.99 after discount, used 3 $2 coupons)
14 boxes of Crayola (I'll explain) .25 each

Total: $10.45 and I got a $4 on your next order coupon back. Final Price $6.45

About the Crayola: there is a catalina deal to buy school supplies of certain brands (Crayola, Expo, BIC, Papermate, Mead, Sharpie, Avery, Five Star, Uni-Ball) $10 worth, get $2 OYNO, buy $20, get $4 oyno. The trick is, it goes by regular prices. I don't know if it's on everything (I assume it is), but it is on the Crayola crayons, which are on sale for .25 each. I bought 14 boxes for $3.50 and got $4 back. These are great for school, to keep at home for your own kids, or to donate to the schools! This cat is good though the 20th.

I *may* go back one more time before the 50% off sale is over. Not sure.

Have a great shopping day!

Now some are rolling and some aren't. Some allow you to get extra and some don't. I will keep you updated on anything I find out, but I may wait a little before I try all of this. It looks like a mess, since there are no "for sure" rules, except for being able to use more than one reward to pay. However, if you want to just do a few deals and then use those rewards to pay for next week's deals, it probably won't be too bad. I just wanted you to have a heads up. :)


Is summertime keeping you busy? It has me hopping, man!

My husband and I took the kids shopping for school clothes on Friday. I am proud to say we got some really really good deals. We stopped at a K&G store and they were having a HUGE clearance sale, and then 33% off of the clearance prices. They were all name brand clothes, and I got my oldest son practically a whole wardrobe for $100! We hit lots of great stores: TJMaxx, Ross Dress for Less, Macy's (because what is a shopping trip without going to Macy's?!), heck, we even went to the Goodwill. (We were having trouble finding pants to fit my middle one) It's a great time to shop!


I also managed yesterday to can my spaghetti sauce and my plain tomatoes. I love having tomatoes in my garden. Unfortunately, some of the other things aren't doing as well. Looks like next year, we will have to get a good pesticide. :( I did have a good green bean crop. I still have more hope for my cucumbers and maybe squash, but we'll see.


I haven't been shopping for groceries a ton, but I did make it on Saturday. I really REALLY hate shopping on Saturday. A lot. Kroger has P&G products (certain participating ones of course) buy 4 get $4 off. I still had the P&G coupons that expired on the 31st, so I got quite a few things. If you go to Kroger's website, you can also load digital coupons to your card, and they can be combined with paper ones. It gets a lot of things really, really cheap, and maybe free.

Some of the Cover Girl, like the brow pencils are $1.87 before the discount. Take $1 off for the discount and $1 in a Cover Girl coupon and get a tiny profit. I also got a eyeliner sharpener for something like .18 this way.

Crest is 10 for $10, so free after your .50 coupon doubles. I do not believe these count on the $4 off sale, but it's still free toothpaste.

There is a $2 digital coupon for Downy. Combine it with the $1 coupon from this week to get it for .99 after the deal. There is also a $2 coupon, but I think it is for a larger size than is in the sale.

There is a $3 digital coupon for Charmin, as well as a .25 paper coupon that will double from this week's P&G. There are Charmin bonus packs in the stores, and you will get it for $2.49 after the deal.

If you're lucky enough to find the Gillette Body wash (my store was wiped clean!) it is free after the coupon from this week and the deal.

Checkout the deals closely on Olay, Venus, Pantene, CoverGirl Last blast, and Secret. There's a $10 rebate wyb $30 worth here.

Trust me on this: when you load your digital coupons, print out your list. There's no way you will remember how much off you have when you get to the store with your coupons. I may make a quick run later this week, and I'll let you know how I did.


Kids are eating free from 4-10 pm at IHOP all August long!!


Please check out Target's store coupons. You can use them with manufacturers coupons to get some really really good deals. I do not normally shop at Target because they are kind of far from me, but if you have one, I want you to get the best deals. Here is a site to get you those.


Look for a Kellogg's Fuel for school rebate form. They put them out every year at this time. They start running great deal on Kellogg's/Keebler products and then you get a rebate in the form of a $10 check. There are also coupons here. You will need to register at both links.


Rite Aid. Oh, my. I'm not sure what's going on there. First, you had to get a wellness card (for free) for the best deals. No biggie. We have Kroger cards/Food Lion cards...why not? Now, they have started a program to go along with your cards called +UP. From what I can tell, it works similar to CVS's extra care bucks. Coupons will print at the bottom of your receipt for future purchases. You have to keep these coupons, they will not be on your card.

From what I understand: you will not get multiple rewards for the same deal on the same transaction. I don't know if this will continue though, since some people are getting more than one. Meaning, if they say XX razor will give you $1 up reward, then if you buy 2 XX razors, you will not get $2. However it will not stop you from getting rewards for other deals. If anyone gets more than one reward for the same items, please let me know.

You can use coupons and still get your up deals. You can roll them (example: using your $1 XX razor reward to buy another XX razor, and getting a new XX reward) You can use more than one reward to pay (this comes from the corporate office), but you cannot go over, and it will not pay for tax.

Really, it looks like they are copying ECB's from CVS, so if you are a CVS shopper, this should not be new to you. I'm thinking of trying it out.


I'm trying to decide the direction I want to go with this blog. It's a lot easier to post things on my Facebook page, but I can't post anything too long there. So, I can either keep it like I have it, and post daily things on the FB page, and the longer deals here, or I can post everything here in seperate blog posts and link to them through FB. If you have any opinions which you would like best, I am happy to hear them. You can message me on FB or you can email me at

Have a great shopping day!
