There is a great coupon out right now, which could mean you could either score 3 free Robitussin To Go or get $.50 overage at Wal Mart on 2. Go to to get yours now. Hurry, hot coupons like this go fast!

Target Rounds out the Weekend!

So Target was my last stop on the coupon circuit this weekend. I actually went back to get these, as I had originally stopped there first, but could not get this clearance item out of my head. So here it is.

6 boxes Finish Powerball w/ free jet dry @ $3.48

Qs used:

6 $2.15 Finish (sorry, cannot remember the source)

Total OOP:

$7.98, which is not free, but I think a really great deal all the same because these dishwasher tabs are regulary at least $5 each box. Nice finish (no pun intended lol) to a great couponing weekend!

Anyone have any great trips they would like to share. Please feel free to do so here. We love hearing about all the great deals out there.

Wal Mart Round Two!

So this was take two on Wal Mart. Definitely a great trip. Details listed below. I will say that since the KY coupon has come out, finding a store that actually has it in stock is tricky, so I was lucky to snag the one in the pic. And I know some minds are going there, so let me just say that any KY I score for free or overage will be donated to local animal shelter or put in baby shower gifts, because it can actually be quite usefully if a rectal temperature is needed. And I did have two Band-Aids, but one of them got lost in the shuffle and later located in another bag, but did not make it into the picture lol.

7 Cortaid @ $3.50 each
11 packages of Schick razors @ $1.97 each
1 KY jelly @ $2.84
2 Band-Aids @ $.97 each

Qs used:

7 $3 off one Cortaid product- SS Healthy Essentials 01.08.12
11 $2 off any Schick razor pack, excluding two count and travel- SS 01.01.12
1 $3 off any KY product- IP or SS 01.08.12
2 $1 off any Band-Aid IP

Total OOP:
$2.95 for just over $50 worth of products

Hungry Hungry Hippos: Kmart Score!

Much like the Kre-O coupon, I am so glad that I printed the Hasbro Qs before they added restrictions. With those Qs, I was able to add four more games to my present stash!

4 Hungry Hungry Hippo travel games @ $4.99

Qs used:

4 $5 off any Hungry Hungry Hippo game (link to Hasbro coupons that are now available is listed in last post)

Total OOP:

Wal-Mart Round One This Weekend!

So this was my first trip to Wal Mart this weekend. I had luckily printed off the Hasbro coupons when they were first released, before they were pulled and reworded to exclude certain sizes. Came home with 4 Kre-O construction sets and 10 movies, great additions to my present stash. Here is a breakdown:

4 Kre-O construction sets @ $7.97
5 Open Season @ $5
5 Planet 51 @ $5

Qs used:
4 $8 off Kre-O Transformers Optimus Prime construction set- Hasbro coupons here
10 $3 off Open Season, Planet 51 or Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - IP here

Total OOP:
$19.88 for the movies, which would have normally by themselves cost me $50.

Another Great CVS Trip!

This picture actually includes all products I scored at CVS over a three day period this weekend, from Saturday to Monday. Breakdown of the trips is below:


1 Brita Pitcher- $14.99
8 Dawn dish liquid (done in two transactions per wording on Q)- $.99
2 CVS cotton balls- $.49

Qs used:

1 $3 off Brita pitcher- peelie on product
8 $.50 off Dawn- P&G 01.01.12
$5 ECB
$1/2 CVS skin care (got another one from coupon machine on Saturday!)

Total OOP:

Will submit for $10 mail in rebate for the Brita pitcher and got a $5 ECB back on pitcher, so I actually made about $4 on this trip :)


2 Fruitopia Hair Spray- $1.94

Qs used:

2 $1.50 Fruitopia Hair product- CVS RIB magazine (these were done in 2 different transactions, to try to stay in line with the wording on the Q)

Total OOP:



Store #1:

2 Fruitopia Mousse- $1.94 (my daughter, who also just got her first CVS card this week, did one transaction while I did another)

Qs used:

2 $1.50 Fruitopia Qs- CVS RIB magazine

Total OOP:


Store #2:

1 Fruitopia Styling gel- $1.99
2 Neosporin Healthy Essentials Anti-Itch cream- 8.69

Qs used:

$1.50 Fruitopia Q- CVS RIB magazine
2 $3 off Neosporin Healthy Essentials IP- here
$11 ECB

Total OOP:
$.87 and I have $5 ECB from the neosporin :)

So my total for all trips for CVS over the 3 day weekend would have been $51.02, but with my Qs and rebates and ECBs, I acutally came out $1.37 to the good. This is why I love my CVS! Plus I added to my beauty club total, so I am getting that much closer to my next $5 ECB from that as well. :)

Friday Trip: Great Start to the Weekend!

So started on the weekend fun with a great trip to my CVS on Friday. I had been getting $1/2 CVS skin Care product Qs all week out of the Red Coupon machine. I always hang onto the Qs that come out of the machine just in case a great deal will come up, even if it may be something that I may not think we will use like with this Q (I was thinking it was only for lotion, glad I realized with some help from friends that I could use it on other things as well :). And if you are not scanning your card at the red coupon machine every time you stop at CVS, you could be missing out on some great deals. So with the great Qs that I had, I got ten bags of CVS brand cotton balls for FREE! Gotta love the freebies :).

10 bags CVS cotton balls- $.49 (not sure if this was a sale price or clearance price, but sure glad I found it)

Qs used:

10 $1/2 CVS skin care

Total OOP:

$0 !!!!!!!!!

Great Couponing Weekend!

Getting ready to post my trips from my great birthday weekend couponing adventures. All in all, I think it was a wonderful weekend with lots of great finds, so I cannot wait to share them.  Uploading photos now, so I will get them posted this evening.

How many of us have left over candy canes from Christmas? Do you find yourself throwing out way more than you thought you would? And then there are those of us who turn right around and purchase a ridiculous amount of candy for Valentine's Day, either for family, friends, co-workers or our children's classes at school. How about turning those left over candy canes into great valentine's, saving money and producing less waste.

Amazon Valentine's Day Deals

So I have started think toward the next holiday, and that means what to do for Valentine's day. Browsing the offerings on Amazon, I located what I think may be some pretty great deals for this occasion.

                         Product Details

Right now, the DVD Valentine's Day, starring James Bradley Cooper, Taylor Swift ( a favorite in our household) and Jennifer Garner (just to name a few of the celebrities gracing the screen in this flick), is listed at $3.04. If you are looking for something inexpensive to do with a loved one that night, this may just be the ticket. And it seems to be appropriately titled for the holiday.

Free Hair Color @ CVS

Thanks to another great tip from my friends at regarding clearanced items, I was able to score some free hair color at my CVS today. I ended up with 6 packages of Clairol hair color, and although I don't think I need the root touch-up just yet, it would be a great item to donate to the local women's shelter and the purchase of the products helped boost my Beauty Club balance. My transaction went as follows:

3 Clairol Nice and Easy Foam @ $2.49
    ( 75% off automatically saved $7.50)
3 Clairol Root Touch-Up @ $1.87
    (75% off automatically saved $5.62)

Total:  $13.73

Qs used:

(3) $3 off Clairol Nice and Easy- P & G 01.01.12
(3) $1 off Clairol Hair Color- P & G 01.01.12
(1) $.075 ECB

OOP= $.98 which was tax :)

01.08.12 Inserts

I just have to tell you how excited I am about the inserts this week. The fact that Dunkin Donuts is not only giving us free travel mugs with coupons, but also free medium hot chocolates was enough to get me jumping for joy.
.                          dunkin_donuts.gif image by vindalouie 

But that was only the start of coupon euphoria this week. Some of my other favorites are listed below:

*$2 off any Schick disposable razor: these have been priced at $1.97 at Wal Mart, so more free razors plus overage for us
* $3 off any Cortaid product: these have been reported to be priced at $2.62 at Wal Mart, so this could mean free Cortaid plus some overage for us if the price matches at our local Wal Mart
*$3 off any K-Y product: these have been priced at $2.84 at our local Wal Mart, so more free K-Y plus overage for us (as a side note, K-Y can be used for a host of different things besides what it is marketed for; these can make great, although maybe some eyebrow raising, gifts to add into baby shower baskets as it can come in handy if a rectal tempurature is ever needed on the little one)
*$2 off any Clean & Clear product; these are a part of the gift card deal at CVS this week, making them just $1.62 each when you purchase 6, which is a great price for us, as the preteen female in the household loves their body and face wash
*$1 off any Stayfree product; wish I could find some on clearance for $1.05 like I did last year to make this a really great stock up item, but it is a part of the gift card deal at CVS this week, so you could possibly still come out with a freat deal on these, which we will be looking into later as we are running low in our stock and that is not a good thing in this household lol

So a big THANK YOU to my wonderful husband who made the stop to pick up my papers this week, I am so very grateful you are helping me out on this wild coupon adventure. Anyone else have any coupons they are excited about this week? Let us know!

Hot $1 Reach Coupon

Head over quickly to score a hot $1 off any Reach floss product Q. This will mean you can score some free floss at Wal Mart. Hurry here to snag your Q though, because a coupon this hot will not last long.
