Great coupon code!

No longer available

ToysRus has a great coupon code for $25 off $50 order.
You have to pay using paypal. Enter this promo code
>>>>> paypal25
Enter this on the same page you enter paypal as your payment
method otherwise it will not apply the discount. Also I had free
shipping items in my cart but when I used this code shipping was
added back on.

My order came $57.xx
I paid................ $37.xx

I'm happy with that! Shipping was about $6 and tax about $4.

Thanks slickdeals.net for this one

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sears announced that they now offer layaway. Good to know .
They do require 20% down (I believe).

$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.
