Hubby woke up early in the morning yesterday to pick me up some newspapers from the dollar store because he was out of razors and of course I had let him know that we would be getting FREE razors this week with Sunday’s inserts

Little did we know that the only Free razors after $3 BIC coupon at CVS were the women’s Silky Smooth LOL

Eh, he doesn’t care if he shaves with a “woman’s” razor

His exact words were, “A razor’s a razor…blue, pink, purple…I don’t care!”

Out on the town for $7

4 Jan

Hubby heads off to work super early in the morning, 3:45 am to be exact 😦 At around 8: 45 am I hear someone opening my front door…scary!

In walks hubby…phew! I guess someone at his job made an oopsy at work (broke safety protocols) and everyone got sent home for the day. So he got to play hooky for the day and we headed out for a day of shopping at almost every store imaginable lol

First stop, Walmart

Purchased: 6 nivea lip care, 4 up2u gum pks, 2 cans muir glen tomato sauce, 2 boxes ziploc bags

Coupons used: 85¢/1 muir glen, $3/2 nivea, $1/1 up2u and $1/2 ziploc

TOTAL OOP: $1.02

2nd stop, Fry’s

Purchased: 1 tide 50 oz, 18ct pk tide stain release, 3 speed stick deos, 2 old spice deos, 2 febreze set n refresh, 2 covergirl eyeshadows

Coupons used: $2/1 tide, $2/1 tide stain release, 75¢/1 speed stick, $1/2 old spice, $1/1 febreze eq & mailed q, $2.50/2 covergirl


$4 off purchase fry’s ecoupon

TOTAL OOP: $6.10

3rd stop, CVS

Purchased: 3 pantene shampoo/conditioner (clearance @ $1.57 ea)

Coupons used: $3/2 pantene & $1/1 pantene (pampers booklet)

TOTAL OOP: $1.15 (paid with CVS gc I got here last week)

I was super excited when the cashier handed me my receipt with $6 ECB on it!!

I guess the clearance pantene is also generating the ecbs wyb 3

I received a $5 ecb for taking a survey sent by CVS on Monday so I decided to roll the $5 & $6 ECB to purchase:

2 oral b battery toothbrushes, 4 nivea, 1 coffeemate powder creamer & 2 snickers chocolates

Coupons used: $3/1 oral b, $3/2 nivea, free coffeemate q & $11 ECB

TOTAL OOP: $2.10 (paid with CVS gc again)

Got back $9 ECBs & have a remaining balance of $6.75 on my CVS gc

Can’t wait to roll these ECBs & balance next week 🙂

4th stop, Bashas

I don’t shop at Bashas because it’s too far from my home. I don’t even receive an ad for it in my mail…that’s how far it is


I received a $25 gc for my bday and decided to head on over there since we were already out and about on our frugal shopping spree ;0

O-M-G was I disappointed 0_O

Just about everything I was interested in purchasing was waaaaayyyyy too expensive for my liking

Just an example: ziploc bags 20 ct $4.XX

GEEZ they were in the $2.XX range at wally’s!!

8 pk bounty paper towels: $10.XX

Currently $5.99 @ Fry’s

So I went the store brand route and purchased: 12 pk toilet paper, 8 pk paper towels, 75 sq ft aluminum foil, measuring cups (kiddos use them to play with so I needed a new set as I can only find 1 now) & 2 colgate toothpastes

Coupons used: 75¢/1 colgate (free with q because they’re currently $1)

TOTAL: $20.XX (paid with bashas gc)

Highly doubt I’ll be going back to use that remaining balance 😦

Last & final store, target

Once again I was really disappointed with target

Their shelves were wiped clean of all the Xmas stuff and their toy clearance wasn’t really impressive either

I did manage to get a free box of market pantry mac n cheese! LOL

Also, if you’re looking for squinkies, there were a ton on clearance. The 6 pks were $3.XX and the 4 pks of CARS 2 squinkies with ramp were $1.50…Not a bad price if you’re looking for Easter basket fillers 😉

After leaving target we noticed a Starbucks right next door so we headed on over to use the 2 $10 gc my sis gave me for Xmas…that cheered us back up!!!

At the end of the day, I spent $7.12 OOP and had a blast playing hooky with hubby 🙂



1 Jan

Hope everyone had a safe & wonderful new year with family and friends!

I had a great Christmas and New Year because I got to spend it with the people I love the most and we were all ringing in the new year healthy and in good spirits!

I know I haven’t been posting that often due to the busy busy busy holiday season


I did manage to take a few pics of the things I was working on during this time

and I wanted to share a few of them

One of them was the cute sock cupcakes that Sheryl posted over at thecentsableshoppin.com

I really liked these for stocking stuffers and I was lucky to find a ton of these socks at the 99¢ Only store for 99¢ of course…

They had them in both kid and adult sizes and all sorts of cute prints including my fave…polka dots!

I modified the cupcake liner by using scrapbook card stock since I had a ton leftover from my abundant scrapbook making days supply

& this is how they turned out

I gave them to the girls & gals in my family to keep their toesies warm while on our Christmas trip to Sedona

Before we left on our Christmas vaca, I also had a ton (well only 4 but it seemed like a ton with all the gift wrapping & other stuff I had going on LOL) of gift baskets to make for my daughter’s teachers (yes plural since she has a different teacher for every subject ugh)

I only had time to take one pic but I liked this gift basket the most because it was just meant to be!

I had been accumulating all the items that went into this gift basket throughout the entire year and when it was time to come up with “manly” gift baskets, I didn’t have to really think about what would go into it. Of course this gift basket would have easily worked for a female as well but I already had a ton of girl items for the female teachers so I’m glad this worked for the male teachers 😉

The basket included Coffeemate powder creamer, Nescafe coffee stick pack, Coffeemate coffee mug, Coffeemate coffee spoon, Coffeemate powdered creamer sticks and a box of Nonni’s biscotti. Everything in the basket I got for free thanks to Coffeemate Brew Crew and the Nescafe party pack I received last month. The only thing I paid for was the basket…$1 from Dollar Tree 🙂

For those wondering about the cello wrap, I buy it online from papermart.com

I usually get the 500’x40″ clear cello roll for around $27 and it lasts me about 2-3 years and I make a ton of baskets with it (over 100) during Valentine’s because my sis and I sell vday baskets and have been doing so for about 6 years now

It’s A LOT cheaper than buying a single roll at the dollar store for each basket. Especially if you want to make several baskets during the holidays and as bday gifts 🙂

I started off the New Year with a super awesome shopping trip to my fave store…CVS to get in on some oober cheap Charmin TP

I’m not a fan of this brand of tp but my husband and kiddos could care less so I stocked up for them 🙂

I did 2 transactions

Trans #1: 4 charmin 9 roll pks

1 soft scrub cleaner

Used $5/$25 cvs emailed q, (4) $2/1 charmin blinkie q’s & free soft scrub q (facebook offer)

Paid with $6 ECB

Total OOP: $4.72

Trans #2: 2 charmin 9 roll pks

Used (2) $2/1 charmin blinkie q’s

Paid with $3 ECB (quarterly ecb that printed @ the red machine)

Total OOP: $4.XX (sorry tossed receipt)

My total OOP was $9.XX and I got back a $10 cvs gift card…LOVE FREEBIES!!!

We’re definitely stocked up on TP for a while 🙂

Then I headed on over to Fry’s because we were there the night before and I noticed the P&G sale tags and was excited to see that old spice body wash would be 49¢ with the q’s we got today. Plus I had a BOGO old spice bodywash q from the pampers booklet I got a few months back so I couldn’t pass up such a great deal 🙂

While I was there I also noticed that the 6.4 oz colgate was 4/$5 so only 25¢ after the q we got in today’s inserts. I don’t usually pay for toothpaste but this is the only toothpaste my dad will use & I believe he’s down to his last box so I got him 1

My fry’s also had most of their febreeze, glade and airwick holiday scents on clearance and I just happened to have the $1/1 febreeze q that was mailed to me a few months ago so I got the set & refresh for 24¢ after q

I was planning on using that q for the febreeze air effects spray that is part of the P&G sale (only 49¢ after the q) but I quickly realized that I probably shouldn’t spend money on air fresheners since I got selected to host the Glade house party this month…super excited about this house party!!!

My total OOP: $4.63 but I used the P&G gift card that I received as a rebate purchasing all that free + overage covergirl a few months back so Free…once again, LOVE FREEBIES!! As a bonus, 2 cats printed out at checkout: 50¢/1 powerade (free since they’re only 79¢ right now) and a free poise liners hehehe

Speaking of covergirl, it is also a part of the P&G sale and I found the eyeshadow for $1.55 and today we also got a $2.50/2 covergirl products q in the p&g insert so only 30¢ ea wyb 2…SWEET!! Not free but definitely a good price if you want to start up your gift basket stockpile 🙂 The face puffs, pencil sharpener and eye shadow brushes were also $1.55 so there’s several items you can stock up on for gift baskets and hopefully there will be another P&G rebate that includes covergirl items so SAVE those receipts!!

I started off the new year with 2 awesome shopping trips and I hope it’s a sign that we’ll start to see better grocery ads this year and will have lots of super awesome deals to look forward to 🙂


2 Oct

Early this morning, Hubby got up & headed to the dollar store to get my Sunday newspapers!

When he got back he was all excited, “Guess what? All the papers I got had the 5 inserts you wanted!”


I wasn’t hopeful that the Playskool insert would be in the paper & sure enough it wasn’t so I wasn’t disappointed since I had already forewarned hubby that it probably wouldn’t be in there 🙂

So I got to clipping the $8/2 covergirl q’s & the suave BOGOs and put together my q’s for a fry’s/TJ trip

However I wasn’t really in the mood for getting ready & going shopping…tons of laundry to do!

So I asked hubby if he wouldn’t mind doing the trip for me if I wrote a list out of what q’s to use & items to buy…His answer: NO WAY!

He happily agreed and even took our girls with him!!
