Blockbuster Treat !

I got a coupon for Blockbuster's from Mycokerewards.com.
The coupon included 2 free movie rentals, free tub of popcorn
and 2 20 oz sodas. This would of cost me over $15 ! This really
made for a cozy family night.

New Bzzagent Campaign

My new Bzzagent campaign..... Glade Candles !!!!
I am soooo excited . Look at my Glade bzz kit !
1 Apple Cinnamon scented candle. It smells so good!
Look at the nice Holiday design. I also got a bunch of
coupons to hand out too.  All this neatly wrapped in a
pretty holiday box. Gets me excited about Christmas all
over again (Can you believe its almost here !)


Lack of Posts

Sorry about the lack of posts but I am not feeling too thrifty
these days ! My entire family was in a wedding out of town
a few weeks ago and as you know that can get pretty expensive.
My daughter's birthday was yesterday and I have promised to
 take her to Dave and Buster (not frugal at all).  I also spent
way too much for her gifts. I bought way more than I needed to.

Money is just flying out the door lately ! I just wanted to
be honest and accountable for my spending.
Hopefully I will get back on track.

Free soup at Giant Eagle!


Check your inbox ! Giant Eagle just sent me an e-mail
that I can get a free box of ready to serve soup for free!
Its loaded on my card no coupon needed ...woohoo!
Hate to say it but its definitely soup weather :(
This good this week only until 10/6 . Hope you get
this offer too !


Loving the Deals at Giant Eagle !

Giant Eagle :
Last weeks sales ad.

7 lunchables
10 Fuze

Paid $7.87 and got a $ 5 cat. for the lunchables
I had a $3 oyno for the hamburger and used a $5
cat. from last week.

I had 10 (.75) coupons that doubled to $1.50 . 
The Fuze was $1.79 each so paid $3.00 for 10.
I thought this was good until I read this weeks 
sales add! They are on sale for $1 and if you buy 
10 you get $3 off instantly. Crap that is so much
better then what I paid!

Sooooo....... I took them back. I bought mine on
Wed and returned them the next day. I got $11.xx
back after I rebought them at sale price.

I'm so glad I did this! Look what I got below with
the $11 , $5 cat and $6.64 oop :)

4 Nesquick
20 Fuze
6 Hamburger Helpers
4 Old EL Paso kits
1 Old El Paso seasoning pack
4 boxes soft pretzels

Got a $1 cat for the OEP
Got a $3 cat for the HH

2 things I did wrong:
- I thought I would get a $3 cat. for the
  OEP. I bought 5 OEP items but I think
  the seasoning packet did not count. I only
  got the $1 cat :(
- I added 4 pretzels to my cart and used
   only 2 coupons. Could have saved $2
   if I used them:(

All and all I think I did pretty good !
