A Blogging Break

I have decided to take a little break from blogging for a few days. I hope to be back to my normal blogging routine in a few days. In the meantime, keep shopping the deals. Publix has a few good deals this week (pickles, mustard, almonds...) so check out their ad and find the best deals. Walgreens and Rite Aid have a few good deals (deodorant, toothpaste, wet ones, and stayfree pads), but CVS is having a down week. Let me know about any great deals you find this week!

Happy Shopping!

Walgreens (June 21-27)

It's a slow week at Walgreens. The only deal I went in for was free toothpaste. If you haven't noticed, toothpaste is always free somewhere! So, you should NOT be paying for toothpaste (or toothbrushes).

Aquafresh Advanced Toothpaste (5.6-6 oz) - Use $1 coupon (print here: - Get back $3 in Register Rewards ("money" you can use next time you shop at Walgreens) = Free plus $1 overage

Rite Aid Deals (June 21-27)

I went in to Rite Aid today at about 1pm. I was very surprised to see that one of the deals I wanted was already sold out! YIKES! I am wondering if it was truly sold out or if they just decided not to put it out because it was such a good deal. Hmmm...I wonder? So, I only ended up buying 1 thing...the typical free toothpaste! :)

Crest Pro Health Enamel Shield Toothpaste (4.2 oz) - $2.69 - Use $.50 coupon (from Sunday Paper) - Get back a Rebate Check for $2.69 (Sign up here to get the rebate checks and to find out how the program works = FREE plus $.50 overage

Publix Deals (June 18-24)

Publix never disappoints! The deals are always numerous and there is never any problems with coupons there! I mostly use the self checkout which is so user friendly! You scan your coupons yourself and I have never had any issues with them not ringing up right or missing any of them.

Here are the deals this week:

Yoplait Yo-Plus Yogurt (4pk.) - B1G1 ($1.25 each) - Use $1 coupon (print here: = $.25

Hebrew National Hot Dogs - B1G1 ($2.50 each) - Use $1 coupon (print here: = $1.49

Lucky Charms Cereal - B1G1 ($2 each) - Use $.50 coupon (printed from a few days is no longer available) = $.99

Edwards Singles Pies (Frozen) - B1G1 ($1.30 each) - Use $.75 coupon (from Sunday Paper) = $.55

Starbucks Ice Cream (16oz.) - B1G1 ($1.80 each) - Use $.150 coupon (print here: - $.30 **This website alternates between printing out $1 coupons and $1.50 coupons. You can print out 2 from each computer you use, so print twice to get the right one.**

Target Deals

There aren't any really thrilling Target Deals this week and most of these are ongoing, so no need to rush out right now. But you should print the coupons as soon as you can, because those disappear quickly! Target is still not my favorite place for deal shopping (don't get me wrong, I LOVE Target) but as far as couponing goes, the cashiers aren't very proficient. Every time I have gone the cashier has had problems ringing up my coupons. Like tonight, she wouldn't take off the lotion coupons because she said I had to buy a full size bottle. I told her that the coupon did not specify, so it should apply. She tried to argue with me, but there was a line forming, so she just did it. But she was so grumpy about it! I just don't understand why Target doesn't train their employees in handling coupons. I never use illegitimate coupons...I'm an honest couponer! So, I'm not sure how many Target Deal posts I will have in the future. But if the deals are too good to resist, I will be sure to post them! :)

Here's what I got tonight:

Crystal Light on-the-go 3 pack - $.99 - Use $1 coupon (print here: = FREE **These are located in the checkout lane**

1 lb. Driscoll Strawberries - $1.99 - Use $1 Target coupon (print here: = $.99

Kashi Frozen Waffles - $1.99 - Use $1.50 coupon (print here: = $.49

Vaseline Aloe Fresh Lotion (travel size) - $.97 - Use $1 coupon (print here: = FREE

Another Kroger Deal

Kroger has Nature Made Vitamins on sale B1G1 (Buy 1, Get 1 Free). You do not need to purchase 2 to get the sale price. I bought Calcium (60ct.) for $3.39 and then had a $1 off coupon that I had clipped from the Sunday Paper. So I got 60 days worth of calcium for $2.39! Not bad at all!! There are a TON of vitamin choices to choose from and it's still a good deal even if you don't have the $1 coupon.

Kroger Reminder

I just can't get over the great deal on Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade and Strawberry Lemonade. I went back today and got 4 more! :) This lemonade is SO good!!! I personally love to mix it with a little vodka to make a refreshing treat, but it's also great alone! Print the $.75 coupon ( as many times as you want! The ones I purchased don't expire until 2011, so they will last for a long time in my pantry. The sale price should be 8 for $10 ($1.25 each). You do not have to buy 8 to get the sale price. After the coupon you will spend $.50 per juice. This sale ends on June 20th, so get to Kroger and stock up!

Walmart Deals

I had a list of several items I wanted to pick up at Walmart today (all GREAT deals), but I ended up walking out with only 2 of the items on my list. Of course, I did end up buying other things (hard to resist), but I was disappointed that some of the items on my list were not even sold in my Walmart. But I will post my whole list, just in case you are able to find these deals in your Walmart! Let me know if you do!!

DenTek Floss Picks (30 count) - $1 - Use $1 coupon (print here: = FREE

Tabasco Sauce (2 oz) - $.98 (I was hoping it would be $.68) - Use $.75 coupon (from in store display at Publix) = $.23

**Here are the deals that I was hoping to get, but couldn't. See if you can find them at your Walmart!

Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade (they don't sell this at my Walmart) - $1.25 - Use $.75 coupon (print here: $.50

Chinet Lunch Plates 36 ct. (they don't sell these at my Walmart) - $2.84 - Use $2 coupon (from Sunday Paper) = $.84

Walgreens Deals (June 14-20)

I have added Walgreens to the stores that I will shop at! I did this because I had heard about the great deals you can get there. There system is similar to CVS, in that they do Register Rewards, where you buy a certain item(s) and get back "money" that you can use to purchase other things at Walgreens. I went in with my list today and came out with less then I thought I would, because some of the deals were not the same as the ad. Annoying! So, Walgreens is not my favorite deal place, yet, but I won't give up. The deals I got today were not ones that gave Register Rewards, so no money to spend the next time I shop.

Here are the 3 items I purchased today. You will need to pick up a Walgreens Ad (you can get these in the store) so you can get the Cottonelle Coupon from the front page of the ad.

Cottonelle Fresh Wipes (42 count) - $1.99 (with in-ad coupon) - Use $.50 coupon (that I got in the mail with a Cottonelle Sample) = $1.49

Reach Toothbrush & Floss - $.99 each - Use 2 $1 coupons (from Sunday Paper) = Both FREE

Cheap Bras!!! (Ends June 17)

Victoria's Secret is running a great deal until tomorrow! Get FREE SHIPPING on any bra purchase. This includes the sale bras! I just ordered 2 bras for $40. If you shop at VS often, you know how expensive those bras are, so to get 2 for $40 is a GREAT deal!! You could even get them cheaper, but I just picked ones that were a little more. The best thing is, if you don't like them when they arrive, you can always return them in the store nearest to need to ship them back.

Go to and shop the clearance bras and undies. Then at checkout, enter the code SHIPBRA and you will get free shipping for your entire purchase.

Kroger Deals (June 14-20)

Need some juice to help you cool off this summer? Kroger is having an amazing sale on organic lemonade! You can choose Strawberry Lemonade or Regular Lemonade. I only had the option of buying one Strawberry Lemonade because that's all that was left at our store. You can print this coupon out as many times as you want and then purchase as many lemonades as you want. The ones I bought don't expire until 2011, so I got 5! :)

Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade & Strawberry Lemonade - $1.25 each - Use $.75 coupon (print here: = $.50 each

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast - $1.99 per lb. (STOCK UP!)

Peaches - $.78 per lb. (this is my "buy price"...good deal!)

Save Money for College!!

If you haven't heard about the UPromise Savings Account, it's time to check it out. Even if you don't have kids yet, or if all of your children are grown, you can benefit from this program. You can save money for your future children or even your grand kids! This program requires you to spend NO money at all!! The way it works is that your UPromise account is attached to your grocery store cards (CVS card, Kroger card, or Publix UPromise card). You can also attach your account to your credit and debit cards. Then, each time you shop, a small percentage of your purchases will be credited to your UPromise account. So with each purchase you making, you are saving for your child's college. Then, when your child is ready for college, you will have a few thousand dollars saved up to help with the costs. No, you are not going to save up enough to pay for their entire college tuition, but why not take a few thousand FREE dollars!! I highly recommend that you check out their website and see how this program works.
