Something fun…

A link to this blog post was posted on a message board I frequent. If you’re new to couponing, a lot of this might not make sense (and it might even scare you away). If you’ve been couponing for awhile, you’ll laugh the whole time because you know that it’s all true!

(For the record, I haven’t stooped to buying Joint Juice just yet, but I did buy Just for Men Touch of Gray hair color once – no….my husband doesn’t have a hint of gray hair, but it was free after ECBs, plus there was a rebate….I just couldn’t help myself….I have since reformed my ways…)

More Freebies!

*Check your coupon inserts carefully! In the Red Plum insert, there is a coupon for free Sara Lee bread!

*In the Parade magazine, there is a coupon for the new McDonald’s chicken sandwich and for the chicken biscuit when you but a medium or large drink. In this area, the drinks are all $1 right now, so it’s a good deal 🙂

This week’s bargains (8/17-8/23)

Here are the bargains for this week: (It’s kind of a slow week from what I’m seeing so far, which is kind of a relief for me because between going back to work last week and all of the deals, I’m burned out!)

CVS: (not many ECB, but some BOGO free deals)
**My ad scans this week came from here:

*Buy Ascensia Contour system ($19.99) and Colgate Total Whitening Toothpaste with free toothbrush, get $5. (not a bad deal if you have the $30 Contour coupon, a $1.50 Colgate coupon, and use the $2/10…it ends up being a free $5)

KROGER:

OFFICE MAX: I LOVE back to school sales! I don’t even have school-aged kids (other than preschool, where supplies are pretty much provided), but with young kids, crayons and notebooks always come in handy, so I stock up for the year!

*Bic pens are .25 – there is a $1/2 coupon that was in the paper a few weeks ago. If you use it, you will get .50 “overage”

TARGET:
They have new printable coupons on their site which can be found here:

There is a .50/1 Pop Tarts coupon. This can be combined with the $1/2 manufacturer’s coupon that was in the inserts a few weeks ago. In my area, the Pop Tarts are $1.79, so if you use both coupons, it ends up being $.79/box. Buy 10 and send in the Kellogg’s rebate if you haven’t done so yet and you will make $2.10 🙂

Gold Fish Crackers are on sale 3/$4. There is a .50/1 Target printable coupon. (see link below) Print 3 and they end up being .83/each 🙂
