11/1 Walgreens $5
11/2 CVS $30
11/3 Walgreens $5
11/3 Walmart $14
11/3 Target $12
11/4 Kroger $44
11/4 CVS $7
11/10 Sam's Club $125
11/10 Meijer $30
11/10 Goodwill $22
11/12 Meijer $40
11/16 Walgreens $22

That's right folks I'm $49 dollars under budget!!! WooHoo :) I have to be honest this really surprised me but I had so many great deals in my stockpile that many things we didn't need to buy. Also being on vacation for two weeks and Thanksgiving leftovers helped in this. I do have to say after using up quite a bit and donating TONS I still have enough for December so I may or may not shop as usual next month.

Holiday Cards for the Troops

Having both my niece and her new husband serving in the Marines I want to post anything I can to help them out or brighten their day. I just saw this on facebook and wanted to share. I can tell you from having my niece tell me they appreciate nothing more than having someone say a simple "thank you" so why not throw a few extra cards in the pile and send them off!

Plum District 50% off T-Shirt Quilt

 Plum District is a deal site where the items and services are focused toward moms and what they want/ need.

It does also say that you can apply your $150 credit toward larger quilts if you would like a bigger one. Unfortunately these quilts would not be ready by Christmas but these are so neat for graduates. You can also use the code CYBERM20 to save an additional 20% which makes it only $60!

Here is a quilt I had made for my hubby a couple years ago (this is not from this exact company but it will give you an idea what they look like).

Thanksgiving Cravebox

I got my 2nd Cravebox last week. This one was the Thanksgiving Cravebox and I must say I wasn't quite as happy with it as I was with the Cooking Light Cravebox. This one included:
*1 coupon for a free can of Grands Biscuits
*2- Packets McCormick Turkey Gravy Mix
*2- Cans Del Monte Green Beans
*1-Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Base & Strawberry Shortcake Flavor Packet
*1- 4ct Knorr Homestyle Chicken Stock
*1- Pouch Dark Chocolate Covered Fruit Pieces
*Recipe book
*Ad for Walgreens Folded Words Cards
I paid $14 and was really disappointed as most of these items I can get for free or close to it with coupons


I turned over the Walgreens Folded Words ad and realized that it included a promo code for $35 worth of free cards and free shipping! That goes to show you to always make sure you read all your ads carefully!

On Friday when I went in I grabbed what I could and then was able to get in the checkout lane and let one of the workers grab the other things on my list. I did use one coupon for  a free mini candle with any purchase. I grabbed a hand sanitiser for $1 and it made for a very cheap trip.

Black Friday....It has begun!!

So is everyone ready for all this craziness? I actually as of 6:10 am had made my first purchase and I didn't wake up until 5:55 :) Kmart was offering almost all of thier deals from today online with free layaway so last night I prefilled my online cart with the 12 kids outfits, 6 pairs of shoes, 5 toys, and griddle I wanted hit layaway and I can pay it off and pick it up whenever I want! I love this option because #1 you don't have to get out of your pajamas, #2 it involves NO standing in the cold for hours with some not so pleasant people, #3 with the layaway option it leaves more of your shopping budget open for other deals since  you only have to put down a first payment of $15!

Above all I wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy time with your families the deals can wait until the turkey is done!

CVS 11/18

So before I start this post I have to say thank you to my friend Mandy who reminded me of a great deal on General Mills cereal where you would get a FREE movie ticket with two codes from inside the box. Sadly when she went to get her final four boxes for her family I was wheeling my buggy down the lane wih my four boxes leaving her only 3 :( So sorry Mandy but, that free date night movie was awesome! I see this becoming a running joke for many years to come!

So after our free movie we went on over to CVS. originally I thought I was gonna look like a crazy woman in CVS at midnight but nope there were many more and I do have to say I again stress kidness to the cashiers!! I heard a lady say last night "I'll show her to say I'll take easy orders" and proceed to check out with 17 seperate orders. Yes I had three but my three were well organized coupons in hand reusable bags opened and I was all checked out in under 5 mins. Can I please stress to never be mean to cashiers. Kindness goes so much farther! It is my goal to make couponers look good, leave the cashier with a smile on thier face, and always make sure to thank them. Let's face it if I have 20 items, 20 coupons and 10 EB to scan in thats like scanning a 50 item order. Ok now off my soapbox and on to the deals!

Wednesday, November 14, 2012


I recently tried Cravebox for the first time. Cravebox is a cool program for adventuresome people who like surprises. You sign up and then check out boxes you think you would like to have. They give you very generalized "clues" to what will be inside but you won't know exactly until you open it up! I paid $13 for this box and shipping was free.

Everyone ready to see what's inside?

It was packed so cute!

This was the Cooking Light box so everything was themed around healthy cooking. Inside was:
750ml Sugar Free Salted Caramel Torani Syrup
Box of Nectresse sweetener
1lb Ground Coffee
2- McCormick Seasonings
3-Dole Fruit Crisps (apple, pear, & peach)
Lots of coupons, recipe, cards and other pertinent information.

Overall I was very impressed with this box and I felt like it was a great value. The Torani syrup alone retails for $7.95 on the Torani website.

I am supposed to be getting a Thanksgiving Cravebox late this week early next week and I will make sure to share it with everyone too.

Oh and the little fairy thinks the bubble wrap from the syrup is awesome :)

Goodwill 11/10

So I made my monthly run to Goodwill and actually bought quit a bit including what may just be Little Miss's favorite find of all time!

I bought:
Grinch shirt for C (we are always telling her "NO") $1.99
Pink Rhinestone Hello Kitty Shirt: $1.99
Mickey & Minnie Hoodie: $1.99
Hello Kitty Hoodie: $1.99
Black Sweat Pants: $1.99
Jeans: $3.99 (I think?)
Purple flowered pants $1.99
Brown Leggings $.99 (were the half off color tag)

And then the piece de resistance:

A warm pink robe! And best of all it was only $1.99. The spot on the pocket in the picture is actually only the shadow from my hand taking the picture at 1am so I could get it washed before the Diva saw it and wouldn't take it off.

Yep she likes it :) Total spent was $22 so not a bad trip at all!

B1G1 Starbucks Holiday Drinks

At Starbucks November 15-18th (Thursday to Sunday) from 2-5pm get a second Holiday drink free when you buy the first one!
Choose from:
Caramel Brulee Latte
Peppermint Mocha
Gingerbread Latte

So who wants to meet me for a coffee date tommorrow?

Anyone else going to Walgreens/CVS on Black Friday?

I have been sitting here for almost two hours working on coupon match ups for Black Friday at CVS and Walgreens and I can tell you that I already have 20+ items on my list that will be completely FREE after coupons and RR/ECB's!! I know very few people think of heading to the drug stores on Black Friday but there really are some awesome deals to be had. Who can't use really cheap tolietries for stocking stuffers? How about some free candy bars for those stockings? And I know a lot of people will be needing that free headache medicine. So hang tight and I will get those match ups posted ASAP so everyone has plenty of time to get organized and hunt down those elusive coupons :)

Print now for Black Friday!

Head on over to and print the following coupons to use on Black Friday at Walgreens:

$1.50/2 Skintimate Shave Gel
$1.50/2 Edge Shave Gel

Both will be 2/$5...Get $2RR back...after coupons and RR will be $1.50 for 2!

Also while your there print the $.50 off yellow box Cheerios and use it to get the following deal at CVS Black Friday:

Cheerios $2.87...Get $ after EB & coupon thats like getting a box of Cheerios for $.37!
*If you don't like Cheerios pick them up anyways at that price and donate to a Food Drive.

Egg Coupon

Head on over to the Incredible Edible Egg Facebook page to print an awesome $.55/2 dozen eggs coupon. 

*Through Saturday 11/17 Walgreens has eggs $1.29 dozen which makes them $1.02 after coupon! and don't forget Walmart will price match the Walgreens egg prices.
