Kmart - Kotex Pantyliner Deal - FREE

So there is a coupon out that is $2/2 any two kotex pads. Kmart is having a sale on their pantyliners for 10 for $10.

I bought 26 pantyliners (various ones) and 2 hairbands. My total oop was $2.45 !!! :)

Talk about free pantyliners! LOL...so awesome!!!

FNL/Easy-up Diaper Deal @ Target

So my pampers coupons are burning a hole in my pocket and they are going to expire soon. And I'm running low pampers (yup we are almost done all 15 cases of the diapers we had in our basement). :(

Target has a sale this week... $17 for 2 jumbo packs of FNL, Easy-Ups, Cruisers and Swaddlers...

I have coupons that are $3/1 FNL or Easy-Ups and I have $1/1 coupons for Cruisers, $5/35 Target coupon and $10/100 Target coupon. The target coupons were mailed to me sometime last week in the target books.

So this is what I worked out...
$8.50 Easy-Ups (FNL are too big for the twins right now)
-3.00 mft cpn
$5.50 for a pack, not bad...

$8.50
x 12 qty
102 subtotal
-36 - 12 mft $3/1 cpns
-10 - target cpn 10/100 purchase
$56 for 12 packs of diapers.

So roughly around $4.70 a pack of jumbo easy ups. Not bad but wished target had the extra coupons for the pampers like they had a few months back. :(

This is as good as it gets at the moment with the conditions that I have. LOL....

Cheap Dawn Dishwashing Soap @ Target

So I don't use Dawn (palmolive girl) but my cousin does and she asked me to grab these for her since one sets of the coupons expire this friday.

Coupons to use... Keep in mind Target you can use one mft cpn and one target cpn per item. :)
VALASSIS 8/26/07 -Target Dawn Diswashing detergent $1.50/2 exp. 9-26-07
PROCTER & GAMBLE 7/29/07 - Dawn, any $1/2 exp. 8-31-07

Dawn dishwashing soap is $1.49 for the 14oz original bottles. To use the coupons above you have to do them in sets of 2.

$1.49 dawn
$1.49 dawn
-1.50 target coupon off 2 bottles
-1.00 mft cpn off 2 bottles
$.48 for 2 bottles of dawn!!!

I purchased 30 bottles for my cousin and the total before coupon was $44.70 after coupon $7.20 (not including tax).

She's super excited as this is the soap she uses. ehhehe.. now she has tons to use for a very very long time!

Safeway Soda Deal (B2G2 free)!!!

Okie this is not as good as the other deal a few weeks back but this deal is still pretty darn smokin! :)

Safeway (started wednesday will end next tuesday) has a b2g2 free soda deal (includes almost all brands not just coke).

The cpns are still good to use on this deal and I believe the expiration on the cpns is next monday (well sometime early sept).

So here goes...

That's $.99 cent for a 12 pack soda!!!!

So if you want to do more sodas, here is the breakdown of what you need to get and what coupons you need to hand over to the cashier...

1 set is the transaction above...

1 set = 4 soda, 6 cards, 2 - "free soda cpn", 2 -"b2g1f card cpn" = $3.96

4 set = 16 soda, 24 cards, 8 - "free soda cpn", 8 - "b2g1f card cpn" = $15.84
5 set = 20 soda, 30 cards, 10 - "free soda cpn", 10 - "b2g1f card cpn"= $19.80
6 set = 24 soda, 36 cards, 12 - "free soda cpn", 12 - "b2g1f card cpn"= $23.76

There is a $2 mft coupon out there (check couponclippers, they are $.15cent each) to make this deal sweeter!!! Be sure to get the correct coupon. The one you want will be $2 off 8ct and NOT the 20ct!!!

then garnier has a great sale also... Buy $20 worth of garnier or maybelline and get $5 ECB with a tote. :) limit is 5!!!

there is a coupon that came out last week that is BOGO free garnier haircolor. Nice time to use this coupon if you didnt use it all at Walgreens on their BOGO free sale.

CVS - Razors, Arm *& Hammer Shopping Spree...

So I did my CVS runs last night and was pretty happy with what I got.... I haven't done any CVS shopping lately because there aren't any good $/$$ cvs email coupons and I've been too busy with Safeway! LOL

Transaction 1 & 2 are the same but different cards...
$1.70 Sudacare Children Vapor refill kits (this was awesome org. $6.80 got them for 75% off!!)
$1.70 Sudacare Children Vapor refill kits
$1.70 Sudacare Children Vapor refill kits
$1.99 Arm and Hammer Toothpaste

$2 mft cpn bic soleil
$5 mft $1/1 arm and hammer toothpaste
$12 ECB

Total OOP $.13 cents! got back $9 in ECBS and 2 CRTS ($1 johnson softlotion & $1 colgate toothbrush)

Kinda sucks that I had to use $12 inECBS but it was because of the sudacare vapor refill kits. I wasn't planning on buying those and that made my OOP higher so I had to use more ECBS. But I did get $9 in ECBS back. :) Those sudacare kits are great. We use them during the winter time when the boys have stuffy nose and yes they are very expensive so I think my $1.70 was well worth it for each package!

Transaction 3 & 4 are on a different care than above.
5 - arm and hammer toothpaste
1 - sea breeze astringent
3 - johnson and johnson baby shampoo ($1.99 each)
5 - wrigleys juicy fruit 10pk gum ($.99each)

That one I made $.99 extra in ECBs!!! Awesome!

Safeway: This deal is over but wanted to brag...

This was a pretty awesome deal! Too bad I found out at the last minute and only did the transaction twice. Wish I knew sooner would have done it over and over again!

Buy 4 post cereal for $10

then Safeway has instore coupon to make the post cereals 4 for $6

then I have a few coupons that are... $1 off 2 post cereal and a few When you buy post cereal get half gallon of milk free. So I used two of each of those coupons. :)

So for 4 cereals and 2 half gallon milk it cost $4!!! BUT i'm not done... safeway coupon machine by the registered printed out a $3 off my next purchase! The cashier (front end manager) just swiped the coupon on that transaction and I only paid $1 for 4 cereals and 2 half gallon milk!!!

eheheh... Did this transaction twice and now I'm beating myself up. Should have stocked up on cereal and milk since it was sooooo CHEAP! Milk is expensive lately anyone notice this? It cost more than GAS! LOL

CVS - Britax Water Pitcher Clearance

I ran across this on the bargain board as well.. They said the Britax water pitchers are clearance to $6.00 and then a few weeks back there was a coupon for $5 off. I remember seeing these coupons! I hope I didn't toss it out. LOL... I'll go searching for it now and try my luck at CVS shopping tonight. :)

Hidden Deals at Kmart...

So i've read these on the bargain boards and this is what some of the posters are saying about kmart...

-Scotch Brite bathroom floor cleaner refills...some places are unmarked but they are .50 each down from $4.99
-Scotch Brite bathroom Floor cleaner kits are $1.50 marked down from $12.50..most places unmarked on the shelf.
-Windex micro fiber clothes are all still marked $2 but are actually .40 each
-Method Shower cleaner in the clear bottle is .30 each
-Lysol Food Surface Sanitizer is .70 each and buy 3 and get $2 off from monthly ad coupon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I went to my kmart to try my luck. I was able to find the scotch brite bathroom floor cleaner refill kits and bought 4 for $.50 each.

I also found the windex micro fiber clothes for $.40 cents. There were a ton but I didnt buy it after examining that these are just plain old cloths. LOL... If there was solution on them, I would buy it but for $.40 for plain old cloths, I'll pass. :)

Okie this is pretty good if you gals are coca cola drinkers! :) I saw this deal on slickdeals and just tried it at my safeway and it works!

Buy 2 coca cola 12 pack and get 3 - 12 packs for free. Then if you browse through the card section there is a tearpad "when you buy 3 hallmark expression cards get 1 coca cola 12 pack for free".

Since safeway is paying for 3 of the free 12 packs you can buy 6 cards to get the first 2 sets of 12 pack for free. All you are paying is the cards!!!! The cheapest hallmark expression card at my safeway is the small 2x2 for $.59 cents.

$.59 2x2 card

$5.49 coca cola

More, More & More Pantene!!!

So I got my second order of pantene coupons yesterday and I just had to go and redeem them. Call me crazy but I did it. I had 6 sets of 12 pantene coupons to redeem and a bunch other coupons to use.

I used the same cashier I had earlier in the week (Tim - The Target Trainer)! He was totally cool with me this time.

I ended up getting...
36 BIG bottles of Pantene
36 Small Bottles Of Pantene
30 Travel size Secret Deo
20 Travel Clean and Clear Facial Cleasner
40 Single Bar Olay Soaps

All the deodorant and Clean and Clear were free with overage. The Olay bar soaps were $.02 each after coupon. The pantene's were all free and the great thing is that I have a TON of target $5 giftcards!!!

The funnything is I still have one more order of coupons coming in. If they make it to my house today I will redeem the last set of 4 pantenes of 12. YES I ordered a lot of these coupons praying they would make it to my house before the week was over! Of the 3 orders I place, 2 got here and I'm still waiting on 1.

I know many of you are wondering how much I spent on these coupons... well here is the breakdown...

$4.08 50 - BOGO free Pantene Coupon
$7.40 17 - BOGO free Pantene Coupon & 60 $3/1 Pantene Large Size
$2.54 20 - BOGO free Pantene Coupon (have yet to receive these)
$14.02 spent on these coupons...

You may think $14.02 is a lot for just coupons, but I have more than $70 in GCs leftover (sitting in my purse) and I have all these pantenes for FREE. I will sell them all and hopefully make $$$!!!

Pantene up the WAZZOOO!!!!!

OMG... I got my first set of coupons in the mail today for the pantene deal at target and needless to say I was super excited and HAPPY. This order had 50 pantene coupons. Meaning if I redeemed all 50, I would have 100 pantenes!!! YES and they would all be FREE!!!!

I did my first set 24 coupons today (was on a tight and limited schedule) and ended up with 48 pantenes. :) I did it in 4 transactions so I wouldn't confuse the cashier and so she wouldnt short change me on my coupons (they sometimes forget to ring in one or two coupons when the order is too large).

So here goes! Did this transaction 4 times.
12 pantenes @ $3.99
Subtotal $47.88

Coupons Used
-$23.94 - 6 WYB Pantene Coupons (this deducted $3.99 each)
-$6.00 - 6 $1 off 2 Pantene Target Web Coupon

$19.04 Total After Coupon and tax (breakdown $17.94 + $1.10 tax)

Paid with 4 - $5 giftcard from last time I did the pantene run.

So I have $.96 cents left on my last giftcard and now I have 4 new $5 giftcards to use on the remaining transactions.

OH SOOO AWESOME!!! I can't wait to start selling my stash!

BTW... I got my cousin doing this also and now she is starting to think more and more about couponing. LOL hahah.. .I told her it will get worse. She will start to dream about coupons and how to get stuff for FREE!

This my friends is what I call the Couponing Craze!!!! AHAHAHAH...

Free Clean and Clear Cleanser with coupon

If you use the clean and clear cleanser, you can get it free with this coupon but it's the smaller trial size. But for free it's still pretty awesome. The coupon came out last week I believe. :)

If you dont have the coupon, you can find it on one of the clipping services on my links or ebay.

Here is a picture of the coupon so you dont buy the wrong one!

Target - Awesome Pantene Deal!!! They paid me!!! HEHEHE

I did the pantene deal yesterday and it was AWESOME!!! This week at target there is a promotion where you buy any 3 pantene or 3 head and shoulder products, you will get a $5 giftcard for free!!!!

So I wanted to tell you that Target paid me to take away the shampoo and conditioner!!!

I bought 3 large pantenes and 3 medium pantenes and the register automatically prompted the cashier to ring in the giftcard after each 3 set I purchased. I did 7 transactions in sets of 6 and it worked perfectly. I now have over $30 in giftcards. The interesting thing that I noticed is that some of the transactions had different ending totals. What I figured out was the way the register was deducting the coupons could lower your total if you have different q's that deducted different amounts.


Sample Transaction that rang up correctly using the coupons
$6.29 Big Shampoo
$6.29 Big Shampoo
$6.29 Big Shampoo
$5.00 gift card (register prompted)
$3.99 medium shampoo
$3.99 medium shampoo
$3.99 medium shampoo
$5.00 gift card (register prompted)
40.84 sub total before coupons
-9.00 (Qty 3 - $3 off big shampoos)
-11.98 (Qty 3 - WYB shampoo condition get the medium free)
-3.00 (qty 3 - $1/2 target pantene coupon)
-10.00 (qty 2 - $5 gift cards)
$6.86 and 2 free $5 gift card

That was my initial OOP ($6.86)!!! The other 6 transactions I had, I used the giftcards to pay for the shampoos. I have about $30 left in giftcards! :) I'm so excited!!! I wished I had more coupons but I dont. :( but no worries... I bought tons this morning and pray they get here by saturday! hahahaha It should since it's only tuesday! :)

Contemplating Flea Market Sale!

I'm so contemplating signing up for a flea market booth/table around my area. Well actually 10 miles away. LOL ...

We were eating at Old Country Buffet on Saturday night and on our way home I saw a sign about a flea market. I was excited but we were in a rush to go home and I didnt get a chance to write down the number. I'm seriously debating about doing this. I think I could make some "good money"!!!

I've been stocking up on razors (LOL, see previous post), shampoo, conditioner, oust fans, toothpaste and some other stuff!

I think this would be the price I would sell things at (parenthesis are the original price) ... tell me what you think via email or post! :)

Schick Quattro Razors ($2.99) - $1.00 or $1.50 each
Zest 3pk soap ($1.79)- $.75 cents
Schick Intuition Disposable 3pk razors ($8.99) - $3 or $4
L'oreal Shampoo or Conditioner ($5.19) - $2
Colgate 8.2 oz ($3.50) - $1.50
Crest 7oz ($2.50) - $1
RGX Bodyspray ($4) - $2
Ultramini Onetouch Glucouse Monitors ($19.99) - $5 to $10
Contour Glucouse Monitor Kit ($79.99) - $20 to $25
Oil of Olay Ribbons Bodywash ($4.39) - $1.50 to $2
Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter ($1.99) - $.75 to $1
Lipton Ice Teabag Box ($2.99) - $1.50
Thomas the Tank Engine Take Along Die Cast Toys - $2 - $2.50

That's all I can think of that I would sell at the flea market.

Razor Run at CVS!

CVS:

Call me greedy but I totally stocked up on those schick razors! My uncle dropped off 21 smartsource inserts and I cut out all the $2 razor coupons. I went to two different cvs and wiped out one cvs. LOL... they are getting more in on tuesday but I still had them write me a raincheck so I can use it later on down the road since the coupons don't expire for a while~! :) The orginal price on these razors are $2.99.

This is what I got.

10 schick razors ($2)
1 gallon milk ($4.09)

Using this coupon you can get the buddies bar soap for free at CVS, Walmart and/or Target. Some have reported that they can print this coupon non-stop. Some say they only can print 2. So I guess all you can do is try and print more than 2 and see if it works! :)

CVS Cereal Run- :) I did good!!!

So did another run on one of my other CVS cards... We had no milk so I had to factor in my "free milk coupon wyb post or crackers" coupon. When I got to CVS, most of the store shelves were empty. I had to think on my feet and change out a few items that I was suppose to get with other things that would qualify in my purchase below. My OOP would have been lower but there were some stuff I just could not get because they didnt have any instock. :( $3.75 isn't bad but still more than I wanted to spend. LOL

Aquafresh $2 Printable Coupon

This will allow you to print only 1 $2 off coupon from aquafresh. You can find more of these coupons in the past sunday post. :)

This coupon would be awesome to use in conjunction with the CVS monthly ecb deal.

Aquafresh will be $2.99 plus it will give you a $2.99 ecb back. Limit is 3. If you use the coupon for $2 off that means you end up paying out of pocket $2.98 for 3 toothpaste but you get $8.97 back in ECBs. :)

Target - Olay bar soap - $.02 cents after coupon!

Target sells their single olay bar soaps for $1.02. They are located in the travel/trial section.

In last sundays paper there was a coupon for "SAVE $1.00 OFF any (1) one OLAY Bar, In-Shower Body Lotion, or Body Wash."SO after coupon it's $.02!!!
I have tons of this coupon because I like how the olay soap feels. :) I just purchased 30 of these bars on saturday and spent $.60 cents plus tax.

CVS shopping - wahoo.. this is tiring.. LOL

Free is never easy but it sure is fun when everything is working correctly. There were a few hiccups but they are easily corrected. :) I had 5 transactions using 3 different CVS cards at 3 different CVS stores. I would have done all my transactions in one CVS store but they didnt have all the products I needed so I had to make my way around. It's fine actually. Where I live, I'm right smack in the middle of 4 CVS stores, 1 kmart and 2 targets (within a 5 mile radius). :)

Kmart Trip - $200 giftcard and counting...

So I squeeze in another kmart trip today. I did 20 duracell packs ($5.50 sale), 40 crest toothpaste (2/$4 sale) and a $200 giftcard. I'm trying to squeeze this all in because kmarts sale on batteries and toothpaste will end this Saturday. The batteries will go back to being $6.50 a pack and the toothpaste, well I don't know. I have too much toothpaste at the moment. Rather stock up on other stuff. LOL.

So this is what is on my receipt...
20 batteries ($5.50)
40 crest toothpaste ($2.00)
$200 giftcard
$390 roughly this much
- 20 - $1 off peelies found on the batteries
- 20 - $1 off 1 manufacturer coupons for the toothpaste
- 200 - $10 off kmart giftcard coupons
$150 - roughly my new totoal
$ 9.50- tax
$159.50 is my new total
$159.50 giftcard from last time!!!!
$0.00 FREE... no money out of pocket and now I have a $200 giftcard!!!!

I spent $159.50, yes that is a lot but keep in mind I now have a new $200 giftcard. So that means on this transaction I have made $40.50 extra!!!

Total giftcards I have now
$200
$150
$12.55
$362.55 worth of giftcard money! EVERYTHING from Kmart that I have so far is FREE!!!!

I'm going to go and try this today at another kmart before the sale is over. I currently have zest $1 off 2 coupons and $1 off 3 Ivory coupons that I can use for this sale to make it sweet. :) My kmart is officially out of zest, ivory, always 20ct pantyliner and crest 8.2oz toothpaste. Yes I wiped them out of my kmart. It's almost been 2 weeks and they still have not stock their shelves! :( I'm waiting and waiting and waiting but nothing seems to happen.

Oh btw i have olay coupons that are good on single bar soaps. TOO BAD kmart doesn't sell the single bar soaps. I've seen them at target and walmart for $.99 cents!! yahoo that means they would be free! hehehe.. I'll stock up on those. I have a ton of those coupons as well. lol

There are 2 other kmarts I can go to. One is in a rough neighborhood that I don't like going to by myself. The other one is FAR. LOL...

As for the giftcard coupons that I sent to you... Remember to do one transaction first to build up your total money. Then rinse and repeat what you did so you dont have to use so much money out of your pocket or you will get stuck with giftcards when you actually paid money to do this deal. Which in my opinion is not worth it unless you really shop at kmart. I dont shop at kmart and now I have these giftcards that I will have to find use for. I may just save them till christmas time to buy christmas toys and presents! :) I find kmart over priced and not very appealing to shop at. Unlike my favorite TARGET. LOL.. Target is expensive but they package and brand their image well. :)

Call me crazy but here's my stash!

Okie... don't hate me cause I'm stockpiling... But for me, this is so worthwhile and it's fun! I'm having a blast and it helps us save money! :) I also do sell these items as well.

So here goes... this is some of the stuff I have been stockpiling in the last 3 weeks. There is more but it's all a mess and I didn't want to take pictures of my messy house! LOL...

The baby food cost about $2.20 for 4o... somewhere in that range. I lost track.


Glucose monitors were free. Colgate cost less than .20cents a tube. Crest was free. L'Oreal was free. Oil of Olay cost about .75 cents a bottle, maybe less.

Duracell was FREE!!!!

Johnson and Johnson Buddies Soap was FREE! Well I paid for the coupons (nominal fee). :)

Cheer Laundry Detergent - All FREE!!!

Zest and Ivory soap was all FREE!!!!

Kandoo was all FREE when I purchased my diapers. I have 2 tubs of this!


Boys Feel-N-Learn diapers were probably $2 a pack or less. Can't remember. These were my earlier bargaining finds! :)

I'm on a bargain HIGH!!!
