30 May

It’s that day of the week!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend

Today I purchased no meat since I have  quite a bit still left in my chest freezer

I’ll probably need some chicken & ground beef next week so I’ll try to make it to Sprouts next Wednesday since I didn’t go there today

If you’re in need of laundry detergent, Fry’s (kroger affiliate) has a great deal on Surf & All

32 & 28 load liquid ALL & 40 load powdered Surf for $2.77 this week

Use the $1/1 ALL Facebook printable q or the $1/1 surf q (rp insert) to score detergent for $1.77!!

Great price and if you have some ONYOs (from all that OM lunchmeat or the $6 cat deal), it makes for some even cheaper detergent 🙂

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 🙂



2 Oct

I ♥ CVS!!

This week I was emailed (2) $4/$20 CVS coupons…WOO HOO!


CVS has a great ECB promo/sale on gain & tide liquid/powder detergent this week:

Gain/Tide: $5.44 ea & spend $30 get $10 ECB (puffs tissue included @ 99¢)

The best part is that CVS also offered $2 ECB on FB this week when you pledged to stop being a $$ trasher LOL


Our quarterly ECBs were issued today (I got 50¢)

Phew!!! That’s a whole lotta ♥ from CVS this week!

So this is the scenerio I did to get the items pictured above for

$3.78 OOP

& got back

$10 ECB

5 Gain x $5.44 (2 sep transactions since q states 4 like q’s per trans)= $27.20

3 Puffs x 99¢ = $2.97

Total: $30.17


$4/20 CVS

(5) $2/1 Gain powder (4 in 1st trans & 1 in 2nd trans)

(1) $1/1 puffs (mailed q)

$10 ECB (that I received last week from slip on deal here)

50¢ ECB (quarterly)

$1 ECB (green bag tag)

$2 ECB (CVS FB offer this week)

TOTAL OOP: $3.78 & $10 ECB for next time!

FYI: I found out tonight after calling 6 different stores, that CVS discontinued carrying the small size of Tide powder so if you’re using the $2/1 gain/tide powder q’s & were hoping to get tide, don’t waste your time/gas driving around from one CVS to another because they don’t carry it anymore (false advertisement!) But oh well still a great deal for Gain detergent 🙂
