Purina Dog Food $3.21 (15lb bag)!!!

It seems to be dog and cat food deal time! First Meijer, then Target and now back to Meijer.
Meijer has a coupon for Purina One dog food. If you use the Meijer coupon with the manufacturer’s coupon it seems we should be able to get a 15-lb. bag of Purina One dog food for $3.21!


Purina One Dog Food (15-lb. bag), $11.21
$5/1 Meijer Purina One Dog Food printable
$3/1 Purina One Dry Dog or Cat Food, exp. 10-13-09 ( 9/13 RP)
$3.21 after coupons!
I hope I still have some of the $3 coupons from 9/13 RP. I used several at Target the last two weeks.

Husband will love this deal! We have three dogs!

Thanks to Deal Seeking Mom for this one!

Great CVS Trip 9/28

I am still looking for the Reinventing Beauty Magazine...I even took in a picture of the Magazine to show. The cashier today knew exactly what it was but she couldn't find it. I told her I have been looking for this magazine for months and haven't found it. Hopefully they may get it in soon!

So then I went to the Pharmacy to ask them about the $100 coupon book. They had it there but they haven't been given any instructions on it so they wouldn't give it out. Their shots don't start until October 13th and the letter in the box says that the coupons don't start until October 1. That is why he wouldn't give me one.
Next stop was to the checkout, I would have loved to have gotten more of the Bounce Dryer Bars but they only had three. Actually was surprised that they still had three. So this is what I bought:

3 Bounce Dryer Bar @ $4 each

3 Tide Stain Release @ $4 each

1 Dawn @ $1 each


(1) $1 Dawn (mailer?)

(1) $2.50 Bounce Dryer Bar -VocalPoint

(2) $1.50 Bounce Dryer Bar -VocalPoint

(1) $1.50 Tide Stain Release - Magazine from home -I have lots of these but didn't pick them up UGH!

(2) $1.00 Tide Stain Release - for some reason I had these!

$ 5/25 Flu Survey Coupon

$ 9.98 ECB

Subtotal = .02 + tax!

Received $10.00 ECB for buying $25 of P&G products!

Summery is that after ECB's paid and ECB's earned all I paid was tax for these!

CVS 9/24

Total OOP $1.71 + tax

I just had to go back for more containers and knew there were 3 more still there plus I had to get another lamp! So I took my Wheat Thin coupons and my free Lipton Tea coupon (came in the mail from calling in and asking for it) to see what else I could get....

2 Wheat Thins $1 each
1 Lipton Tea $3 each
3 Containers $1.99 each (they are behind the Hefty Bags)
1 Lamp $2.49 each
1 Crest $2.99 get 2 ECB
1 Colgate Toothbrush .99 get 1 ECB
1 Q-Tips $3.29 needed to get transaction to $25 plus I needed some of these-just hate it when I know I have a coupon and don't have it with me!
4 Hefty Zip Bags $1.49 each

Coupons Used:
(2) $1 Wheat Thins
(1) Lipton Tea FREE
(1) $1 Crest (found it!)
(2) $1/2 Hefty Bags (our area didn't get the $1/1 coupon...)
(1) $2 Discover coupon
5ECB and 9.98 ECB

Total OOP $1.71 + tax

$1 ECB Crest
$1 ECB Colgate
$2 Rebate on Lamp!

Walgreens Trip 9/24

Total for both transactions $ 3.97!

Personally, I just haven't had the time lately to do Walgreen's. And to be really honest--I let a few RR expire and haven't wanted to keep up with getting new ones. I never thought I would agree with CVS shoppers - it really is cheaper and less of a hassle! Now- I love most of my WAGS cashiers and the deals but it IS easier to roll deals at my CVS and when life gets busy and you don't have too much time to shop(spend those RR's) you don't have to worry as much about ECB's expiring as quickly as RR's. So with that said, I stopped into the new Walgreen's down the street and picked up a few things. If I just hadn't gone down the book isle....that highlander in his kilt!! I haven't read for a few months and I love Karen Hawkins series on Highlander Lords.

#1st Transaction:

2 Toothbrushes 2/$4
1 ThermaCare $2.49
1 Paperback $7.99 UGH!

Coupons Used:
B1G1 Free for the toothbrushes
$1 ThermaCare
$2 Discover
Total Paid = $ 9.48 + tax

$2 RR Toothbrushes
$2.50 RR ThermaCare

Total OOP $4.98 after RR's --- I guess that's not to bad of a price for a new book?!

#2nd Transaction

1 ThermaCare $2.49

Coupons Used :
$1 ThermaCare

Total Paid= $1.49 + tax

$2.50 RR

Total OOP ZERO -- Profit of $1.01 after RR's
Total for both transactions $3.97!

CVS Profit of $6.51

I had $12 ECB's that were going to expire Tuesday so a trip to CVS was needed. I had a coupon for $1 on the Crest but couldn't find it! Also, couldn't find my $5/25 coupon. Decided to use another Discover coupon (excuse was that this would make up for not finding the Crest coupon! LOL So even though I spent some money OOP, I still feel really good about what I bought. With coupons and ECBs I actually bought 4 (12pks) of Pepsi for $1!!!

4 x $3 =$12 = $3 ECBs - 4 (12pk) Pepsi
$2.49 - Lamp w/light bulb! On sale w/$2 Rebate!
$1.99 - Memo Board
$2.99 = $2 ECBs - Crest
$.99 = $1 ECB - Colgate Toothbrush (not pictured-don't think it's made it in from the car?)
$6.99 = $7 ECBs - Headphones (these were rain checked from a month ago)
$2 - Container
Total = $29.45 before tax
4 $2 Pepsi coupons (that I needed to use before expiration - have had them for months)
$12 ECBs
$2 Discover coupon
Paid: $7.44 +tax =$8.49
$2 ECB
$1 ECB
$3 ECB
$7 ECB
$2 Rebate for the lamp
PROFIT of $6.41!!!

Sears $10 off Coupon

***It seems that Sears is having a problem with the fact that THEY put out a coupon that could be printed multiple times and have now decided to resend the coupon! I am glad for all the people who have already been able to redeem their coupons! I do still have 2 of the ones from Seventeen - that are still being accepted.**

Sears has released a coupon HERE for $10 off any junior fashion purchase. There is no minimum purchase required, so it should be fairly easy to pick up something for free. This coupon is valid 9/15/09 through 11/14/09. If you receive Seventeen, the current issue also had a coupon for $10 off any junior fashion purchase. It is right inside the front cover.

I see Christmas gifts for my DD's.

I bet these hit there print limit fast -- so print them quickly. don't forget to hit your back browser for 2 coupons each.

I Used the Discover Card Coupon!

So I made a quick trip to Kroger last night. Just wanted lettuce, cucumbers and some fruit. I wanted salad with dinner (the lasagna.) DD stayed in car. I promised her it would be a quick trip.

I go in and get the fruits and veg tables, then decide I am going to look for a rebate booklet that I haven't been able to find yet. But time was still good, it hadn't taken long. I get to the register and am looking for my Kroger Card then realize I left my money in the car. UGH!

I was frantically looking through my purse for money that I knew I didn't have. I found the Kroger Card and saw my Discover Card. Aw haw!

Now-- I have been trying my best not to charge anything on it but when there is a coupon for $2 off just for using the card I was much more relieved and usage of the card seemed acceptable because I had a coupon!

Husband will die when I tell him this story.

Enjoying Exchange Student

I can not let today go by without acknowledging that it has been one month since our exchange student arrived from Brazil!

I must admit that it was her that brought it to my attention. We had just finished watching Freaky Friday and she looked at me and said " today is the 13th." Well, my reply was "it's not Friday!" Boy did I feel bad that we hadn't realized that she had been here a month already. The time has gone by fast. Of course, we have been very busy. My hope is that life will become a little less fast for awhile. Our exchange student would like a little more activity than we have had -- and believe me -- we have had some activity!

She is used to being able to just catch a bus and go see her friends very quickly. Even though we have a bus system here, I have tried to explain that it really isn't the same thing. Her remark today was that in her city in Brazil she can walk to the mall!

Having her here has been a nice change. She knows English fairly well, and can read English even better. What we are working on are things like idioms. The first word that I was asked what it meant was Duh! I asked her if the kids at school said that and was told yes but that my daughter and I say it! She is right, we do. The next one we still really like is when she was asked in class by a boy to "duck." He told her to "duck" a few times before another student demonstrated what she should do ( the boy was trying to through something in the trash.) We all get laughs over that one. In discussion we do believe he didn't know she was an exchange student so didn't realize that she may not know what something means.

Well, I just wanted to acknowledge her month her in the United States! She has been asked to the homecoming dance in two weeks....

According to It's Hip to Save! Arby’s has decided to extend their FREE Wednesday promotion through September! Today, 9/9, Arby's is offering a FREE Regular Roast Beef sandwich with purchase of a soft drink.
Call your local Arby's to make sure they are participating in this offer. I loved Wednesdays this summer! If I didn't have so many left-overs we would be heading there for dinner.


Hi. It's been too long that I have been offline! I didn't even have a minute to check email.

My youngest son got married this weekend. The rehearsal dinner was at my home and it was lovely. Will share more pictures as time goes. Ignore the date on the pictures--my sisters camera isn't correct on the date. But the pictures are lovely.
It has been so hard to get back to blogging. I love to look for the deals and am trying to share them with all but I haven't been gone long and I feel so out of the loop. It is good to be back online.

CVS Trip

I did manage to get to CVS this morning. All this for $5.00 total - that includes tax.

To Tired To Post Correctly

Did you notice I posted the two posts below wrong! Of course you did. But you do get to see the pictures of before and after. Just the opposite. Today was a very rewarding day.

It looks and feels so nice.


My DH says that there
were so many weeds
I could get arrested!

ALL summer I have been supposed to tackle this area. It is an odd area. I still don't really have a plan for it. The area is hard to get to and I have let the abundant rain water and the sun nourish the weeds since May when my Sister came to town and cleared some of them out.

So this is what I dealt with today. It was a team effort with DD's and DH (thankfully) chipping in. I pulled weeds, DH moved a couple of really heavy yard arts and helped me put down some fiber screen, plus DD's moved several bags of mulch and one even helped spread the mulch. He discovered that our fountain was cracked and fixed it. I figured the motor was ruined. We were in luck since it is now working great.

Do you want to see......

I Won!

Did I happen to mention that it is SUNNY and 74 degrees outside and rain is NOT in the future...

I have received an email from MrsPennyPincher that I won one of the many Fiber One Pack that are being given away throughout the bloggers. I had blogged about this giveaway here.
I love winning!

PS I wonder if I have a chance at her Kroger Gift Card? What about you?

74 Degrees and 11knot SW Wind

It's only noon and this day feels like a long dark winters day!

My DD was trying to download something for homework last night. She didn't get what she wanted downloaded, went to bed with the remark I don't know what I have done....

Now she wouldn't let me help her. She gave me the roll of the eyes when I was standing over her for a second to see what she was doing. I do believe she downloaded everything on the worldwide web! Except what she wanted. This morning as I was driving her to school we were laughing about it. She says "there's even a dolphin screensaver!" She'll be rolling those eyes in the back of her head for awhile because DM will not let this go. I was able to tell everyone the temperature and when it changed a point plus the direction of the wind and humidity! Hey, I have to rub it in while I can...

I have spent the morning deleted and uninstalling, plus I do think there are still a few items that I am not sure about.

All this led to a good cleaning of the computer programs after. I have been meaning to do this for awhile. Especially the more time I spend online, the more I know it is vital that regular checkups be done much sooner than when DD makes a mistake.
