Pepsi Stuff

Yes , this is a bad habit of mine. I just love pop! My husband
is the same way. We save all our caps and enter them on the
pepsi stuff website. If you have been doing this you may already
know that the promotion has ended as of today. I was hoping to
enter a few more codes tonight but no luck it HAS ended:(
However , on the pepsi stuff website there is a mail-in offer for $15
back in Pepsi and Frito-Lay coupons by mail. You must purchase 3
pepsi & 3 Frito-Lay products that are listed on the mail-in form.

Not the greatest , I know, but if you are going to be buying these
items anyways then why not take advantage of the offer. Purchase
dates are from 12/28/08 -02/17/09.

Coupons expiring soon

Time to check your coupon stash. Alot of coupons are expiring this month.

I just used $1 off Valassis pickle coupons to stockpile some pickles.
The relish is a $1 at Walmart making it free after the coupon:)
The ovals are $1.79.......so .79. This coupon expires soon!

*prices may vary*

You can find the Valassis coupon on The Centsible Sawyer blog.
You can find a link to her blog on my sidebar

Walmart Clearance

I found some underwear, socks and pj's in the Christmas clearance aisle.
They are 50% off. I think they are cute. The socks and underwear are
2.50 per set. The pj's are $5. They are in cute gift packs. These would
be great to put away for next Christmas .

Remember to check your receipts!

A couple days ago I went to Cvs to buy a couple of spinbrushes.
They were on sale for 4.99. I bought 2 of them. They rang up
5.99. I said something to the cashier and she said that was the
sale price. Well I went back to where I got them and sure enough
they charged me $2 too much.
Today I went to Penneys and the ornaments I got were 60% off. I
was only given 50% off. So I went back and again they over charged
me. I was refunded almost $3s.
Thats $5 I could have lost by not checking my receipts. I wonder how
often this happens. It all adds up!

Good deal on the Entertainment book

Check out how you can get a free or cheap Entertainment book : http://freebies4mom.blogspot.com/

Cyber Monday..... Enter at your own risk....ranting in progress

My feelings about shopping online are mixed. I thought I
made some wonderful purchases. I was really happy with
what I got and the amount I spent. I also spent ALOT of
time researching on the net. I used promo codes and
ordered through ebates to earn rewards. All sounds good
right???? .................................. No:(
I made only two purchases on that Monday and both were
cancelled!!! My toys R us purchase was cancelled within a
couple days. This was really upsetting because I spent 3
hours looking for the perfect gift. Later I went back to look
at my order and it said cxed. What???
I called customer service and they said " no its not cancelled".
Ok now I have another 45 min. invested making calls, hold
time etc. Guess what the next day I got an e-mail that said
my order was Cxed because there was a problem with the
promo code (get $ off for paying with paypal). I knew it....
AGHHHH!!!! (the problem was a glitch) Well believe it or
not Toys R Us sent me another promo code that gave me
the same exact deal. I was a little nervous that I wouldn't get the
same prices since I ordered on Cyber Monday (Sales). I am so happy to
say that I got an even better deal!!! An item I wanted was not in stock
on Cyber Monday but was now in stock now>>>OH JOY:) (haha).
I ended spending alittle more but this was really what my son
wanted for Christmas. Well some how I ended up with free shipping
(I didnt get free shipping last time) My total ended up being even less
than my 1st total!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Toys R Us Really did what they needed
to keep the customer happy and in the end kept my business:)

Well all is not well with my CVS purchase! I am really upset.
My order was confirmed on Dec. 1st and I received a message
yesterday that they cancelled my order ( 2 weeks later).
The item is out of stock. NICE!!! I am really mad they waited
so long to tell me this. This actually was a gift for my husbands
birthday on the 20th. This really stinks , now I have no present.
Plus I got this item 50% off . I will never find anything that nice
for that price I'm sure. Thats all I got was the message .
There was no substitution offered. I wrote them and they wrote
back that it was out of stock and they are sorry but I am free to
order something else. NO KIDDING....Gee Thanks. I wrote them
back and asked if they could let me use the same promo code so
that I could have 50% off on something else. They wrote me back
and said "Sorry but we cancelled your order due to lack of inventory.
They didn't even answer my question.

To me this is poor customer service. I will never order online from
them again. I really didn't want to order online but the promo
was only online only.
This leaves a really bad 1st impression. Have they lost my business .......
I guess not because I really get great deals at they're store.
BUT they have lost my business online and on this purchase.

CVS have you forgotten who is your bread and butter???
I'll remind you......

Ahhhhh:) I fell better now!

Lovin Walgreens!

1st transaction:
2 packs English muffins
1 dozen eggs
2 reynolds wrap
2 laundry soap
3 ornaments
$7.13 after coupons Received a $5 RR

2nd transaction:
2 laundry soaps
2 reynolds wrap
2 3pks scotch tape
2 ragu
$10.xx Received $5RR & will get a $2 rebate for the tape

I have $10 to spend!!!
In case you don't know Walgreens is having a four day sale.
Spend $25 and get a $5 RR for your next trip. I have done this a
couple times and the $25 is before coupons. This works out in
your favor!

The laundry detergent really brought my total up. It rings up 6.99
so 13.98 for two. There is a coupon in their 4 day flyer that makes them
1.99 .

There are endless possibilities. The sale ends Sat. so try to head out.

Walmart Price Matches

You may already know that Walmart will price match.

I just wanted to mention what a friend of mine did. ......

She was having trouble using her gift card online so she
went to Walmart to make her purchase in the store. Walmart
didn't have the same deal in the store that they had online. I
guess online the camera she wanted was $40.00 cheaper and
came with a free memory card. She asked an associate
who said she didn't think she could give her that price
but when she asked the manager he said they have to since
they price match! So she got her camera $40s cheaper with
a memory card and she saved herself the shipping cost.

Good to know:)

Off Budget

Today I feel like I've overdone things a little bit:( I've spent quite
a bit more than I usually like. There seems to be a lot of good deals
out there and I don't want to miss out on anything. I know I sound
like a kid.
I think I should have stayed away fromWalgreens last week since I
had already gone early in the week. That $5/20 just really draws me
in. I spent 18 oop. I dont like that. I did get 1 rebate item so I'll get
$6.99 back. I also got a couple gifts, TP and lunchmeat.....so I guess
its more like I spent $11.
I also had a high OOP at CVS. I really wanted to do the battery deal.
It did cost me $19 . I used $9 ecbs and $10 oop, Yikes!!!! I hate to
spend that much oop:( I did get $15 ecbs back. I know this is good
but I'll have to spend at least $15 at CVS next time. I'll have to be
creative so that I can keep rolling my Ecbs without losing to many
of them.
Well I feel better that I've confessed.....( I did spend lots more but I'll
spare the details). Next week I think I'll skip shopping.

Oh who am I kidding its Black Friday next week! AGHHHHH

I'm out of control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

$1 Sale at Walmart

Wow I lucked in to some great deals today! I was at Walmart
and I noticed a bunch of people going nuts over a few racks of
clothes. I went over to check it out and everything was $1!
I went twice because the cashier told me they were bringing
more things out at 4:00. I heard an associate say they will bring
more out tomorrow.
I can't show a picture because a few things will be Christmas presents.
There were lots of Faded Glory clothes and Hanna Montana shirts
(This is where I saved a ton because my daughter loves Hanna)
The Halloween clearance was 75% off. They had lots of costumes at
my store. I bought a few shirts for next year for about $2.
I don't know if this is a local thing but thought I'd mention.

My Walgreens Shopping Trip

1 bottle of apple juice
2 Gorton"s fish fillet
2 Ricola cough drops
2 Quattro disposable razors
4 packs of gum
2 boxes of Celestial tea
2 Walgreens sodas

wags IVC + man. coupons on razors and tea
store ad coupons + man coupon on the Ricola & gum

Used $8 RR
& $2 from my gift card
oop= $0.00
saved $45.00s

My RR expired so I had to use it. Bought things that we needed plus some great deals!
I was hoping for the 5/20 coupon :(

My Bad!

Update: I was fully refunded......Now I can sleep:)
Please please please learn from my mistakes. I ordered a free sample
online. There was a $3.95 shipping charge that was added to my
credit card. Well today I was shocked to see they billed me $159.00s!
OMG!!!!!! I still had the stuff in the box. When I looked at the
bottom of the box there was a paper that said along with my free
sample a 3month supply was included. How dumb am I ....I
thought the whole box was a sample...aghhhh! I read about this
sample on one of the trusted blogs I like to read. I just wanted to
stress please always check things out for yourself. Always read the
terms and conditions. Read the fine print and then read it again.
Be weary of giving your credit card information. I always am but
I read about this in a couple places and thought it was ok. It was
easy for them to charge me since they had my info. It was a mess
trying to clear this up! I had trouble getting through. I had to
send the product back at my expense:( AND........They wanted
to charge me $55.00 restocking fee, OUCH!!!!!!!
They said they would waive the fee after I told them I was writing
the BBB. We'll see how this turns out. So far this "free sample" has
cost me the initial 3.95 plus 7.95 return shipping. $12 for something
I didn't even use. The free sample was definitely not a $100.00 value
they claim!! Hope they keep they're word about the full refund.

Birthday Party

Just an update about the birthday party. I guess there were a few
frugal things I did for the party.

I bought her gift at Target using a gift card I got for MY birthday ( I don't mind).
I signed the kids up for Toys R Us birthday club. Alexa got 2 three
dollar off gift cards. I don't know how we got 2???? I'm not complaining ;)
Saved $6 there.
Went to Walgreen's and got 4 two liters of pop 4/$5 get $2 RR.
Paid with Walgreen's gift card. Only $3 on card now....GASP!

$18 Toys R Us Barbie clothes and sports barbie
$ 0.00 Target Hanna Montana barbie
$ 0.00 Walgreens
$ 24.00 Giant Eagle Cake
$ 40.00 Pizza Pan
6 Family size pizzas (96 slices)
$ 5.00 Aldis Cream cheese, chips, lettuce
$ 3.00 Dollar store Paper plates, cups and napkins
$ 90.00

Happy 5 year old......Priceless!

Happy Birthday Lexy

5 years old already!

I was not too frugal on the birthday party. I could have made a cake
and made sloppy joes instead of ordering pizza. We did make a little
extra money on ebay so I guess we did ok. Also I have tons of pizza
left that I froze and will use for dinner during the week......maybe
not this week , we will be sick of pizza by tonight I'm sure:)

Do you have any frugal birthday ideas? I'd love to hear what others
are doing. Please leave a comment.

Have you signed up for PSSST..... yet? I honestly don't remember where I read about Pssst... but I signed up for it not too long ago. I have since received two separate packets of coupons. The first pack I received was for pillsbury pizza crust. I received a coupon for a free can of pizza crust along with coupons to share with my friends! The second packet I've received is for Sweet rolls. I received a coupon for a free can of sweet rolls and 10 coupons to share..
The Pssst. program sends you samples or coupons for products to try in return for your honest opinion on the product. You will have to complete a survey for them. I am new to this program. I'm not sure if this is normal to receive 2 product samples in 1 month. From what I gathered they ocassionally send samples. I may have just been lucky to receive 2. Anyways I really think its a great site to join. Check them out for yourself:)

Bakery Thrift Store

Whats your opinion on the bakery thrift store? I'm not 100% sold yet.
I have gotten bread that molded quickly! GROSS! This however has not stopped me from going. I make it a habit of looking at the expiration date now. I won't make a special trip but if its on the way I'll stop.

Here is what I got for $10.17:

2 Eight packs hamburger buns

2 giant loaves white bread

2 loaves of multigrain bread

2 packages of english muffins

1 package blueberry fig newtons

Giant Eagle

5.00 off ends 9/24
catlina still prints $4 oyno through 9/28
Not as sweet but makes the powerade less than 1.00 each after initial transaction.

These are the deals I scored at GE. I believe they are still good through 9/28.

1st transaction:

6 powerade Zero and 4 regular Powerades

10.00 for 10

- 5.00 instant savings when you buy 10
-1.00 coupon
= 4.00 for 10 Powerades

You will get another 1.00 coupon and a catalina for 4.oo off your next order!

2nd transaction:

Repeat as many time as you'd like. Remember 6 must be the Zero powerades to set off the catalina.

So your next transaction will run you about .38 !!!!!! WOW:)

I did this several times at the self check out. I have about 80 powerades. Woo Hoo
