A few freebies

I have been negligent in updating my blog this past week. Between a terrible stomach bug and Hurricane Ike, I have pretty much been out of commission.

So, I thought I’d share a few freebies to kick off the week for me (I hadn’t left my house in an entire week until today).

Free Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (if you have kids, these are a must have):

Free Gimbal’s Jellybeans (I don’t know if anything else is as good as Jelly Belly, but I figured it was worth a try):

FREE toilet paper at Kroger

Kroger has Cottonelle toilet paper on sale for .99 this week. If you have the .50/1 coupons that were in the paper recently, and your store doubles, your toilet paper will be free! Check your store’s policies on doubling. In my area, you can only double three like coupons per transaction (if I am buying several, I will go late at night and do a few transactions back to back).

I have also heard that the Cottonelle toilet paper is a part of the buy 15 items, get an instant $3 rebate, but I can’t confirm this because I haven’t been to the actual store yet.

Cheap $2 magazine subscriptions

This site is offering magazine subscriptions for $2/year. You can also use this coupon code for an additional 20% off: JUNE

Here are some of the titles that they are offering:

*Everyday with Rachael Ray (this is what I ordered)

*Family Fun (they have lots of fun craft and recipe ideas for kids)

*Parent & Child


*Women’s Day

With the 20% off, it ends up being $1.60 for a one year subscription. Here is the link:

Walgreens scenarios for the week (9/7-9/13)

I’ve loved CVS for a lot longer than Walgreens, but lately Walgreens has much better deals. If you’re new to shopping at Walgreens, here are some scenarios to get you started:


Robitussin & Dimetapp are $3.99 this week (make sure that you get the bottles that are marked at this price because they are the only ones that work for this deal). There are $3 printable coupons for the Robitussin and $2 printable coupons for the Dimetapp (links below).

You can stop here, or, if you want to keep on saving, here’s some ways to spread the $:

Stock up on cleaning supplies next:

2 Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush Max – $3.79 (there were $3 off coupons in Sunday’s paper, and I will use 2)
2 Scrubbing Bubbles scrubbers – $3.79 ( – 2 $2.75/1 coupons – printable on scrubbingbubbles.com)
1 Scrubbing Bubbles shower foam – $3.79 (-$1 coupon on Scrubbing Bubbles.com and there was also on in Sunday’s paper)
1 Shout stain remover – $2.79 (-.75/1 coupon)
1 Windex – $2.79 (-.75/1)

2 Oust Sanitizers – they are on sale for $2.99 this week and there is a $1/1 Walgreens coupon in the Easysaver catalog and a BOGO free coupon that was in the paper recently as well as a $1/1 coupon that was in the paper recently. They let me use all 3, which made them free.

Glade Fabric Refresher is $2.99. There is a $1/1 Walgreens coupon in the Easysaver catalog and there were $1.50/1 coupons in the paper recently (or printable ones on their website). This makes it .49!

Hunt’s tomato sauce is 3/$1 with the in ad coupon and I need a “filler” so I can use my RR (remember that RR are considered a manufacturer’s coupon at Walgreens, so if you are using manufacturer’s coupons for everything else you’re buying, you need to buy something extra to cover using the RR)

Use $10 RR from cough medicine. I will pay $2.02 and get another $10 RR
(if you don’t have all of the coupons I mentioned, you could buy 2 and get $2 or 4 and get $5…print 2 of the $2.75/1 Action Scrubbers and you pay $2.08 and get $2 back)
There is a manufacturer’s mail in rebate for the Action Scrubbers. You will be reimbursed for the full purchase amount $3.79.

I plan to do this next:
Buy 1 Crest Pro Health mouth rinse 4.49 (-.75/1 coupon)
Buy 1 Excedrin Express Gels 3.99 (-$2 printable)
Buy 1 Nivea Men Body Wash 4.99 (-$2 printable)
Buy 1 LypSyl 1.99

Use $10 RR from Scrubbing Bubbles..spend .71, get $4.49 from Crest and do Walgreens rebates for Excedrin, Body Wash, and LypSyl ($10.97)

Buy 1 Revlon Nail Color 4.79 (use $2 from All You or recent inserts)
Buy 1 Crest Pro Health toothpaste (use .75/1 from P&G insert)

use $4.49 RR from Crest. Spend $1.34, get $8.58 in Walgreens rebates

With my $2 from the free Glade Plug ins last week, I’ll have $21.55 coming to me in Walgreens rebates for spending $4.07. I will also get an addition $3.79 for the action scrubber. Total profit = $21.27

You CAN get paid to shop! 🙂 Happy shopping!
