My daughter came home last night from UNF and we hit Target to check out the newly listed markdowns in the household department. I bought her an adorabe white lamp with a rectangular shade for $18! We were also able to get decorative vases for $4 and $5 each, a 70% savings! I know others who have bought furniture, TV consoles, bookcases, etc at 70% off. Now I am waiting for the outdoor chairs to go $8.48 like they were in Palm Coast. After Target, we stopped in Winn Dixie to use my raincheck. Thanks to Margie who gave me her extra $2.15 Finish Coupons, I was able to get 8 boxes of dishwasher gel tabs for $5.27 TOTAL. I looked at my daughter and told her "Now this is how it is done! This is why you coupon!" They were normally $5.29 each and I got 8 boxes for the price of one. LOVE IT!! Maybe some day it will sink in and she will do it for herself. In the meantime, she goes home with 8 boxes of cereal, 4 boxes of dishwasher detergent, 4 laundry detergent, and too many other items to mention!

I was at the Vilano Publix yesterday after coming home from Ponte Vedra visiting my father. Right by the pharmacy, there is a display of Mrs. T's bottled mixers. They include Pina Colada, Bloody Mary, and a few others. They sell for $6.29 and there are hangtags on them for Buy One Get One Free. The expiration date on them is November, 2013. I bought a few Bloody Mary mix for my hubby. I don't think I have ever seen this go on sale!

Don't run out and use that Coppertone coupon just yet...hold out until Thursday and use it then. They will be on sale and you should be able to get about 4 bottles for about $3.60 plus tax!

In today's SS there is a coupon for $5/2 Coppertone Sunscreen. There is a publix coupon for $2 off in the advantage flyer. Assuming they are about $7.50 each, I will buy 4 and use four $2 Publix coupons. Then I will use two $5/2 coupons from today's paper. Add icing to the top and use the $5/30 WD coupon and pay about $7 plus tax for 4 bottles of sunscreen! That is even better than the Target deal going on right now! Between our pool and the boat, I will need plenty of sunscreen!

I was a the Palm Coast Target today with my daughter and the markdowns have begun! Her target had all the patio sets at 50% off. They also had two colors of stackable chairs, grey and pink, for $8.49 each. They are usually $29.00 each so it is almost 75% off. Pillows and chair pads were 30% off and outdoor rugs were marked down as well. Her Target usually has markdowns before ours so I can't guarantee ours will have the same things on sale. If you are looking for a patio set, keep your eyes open because Targets' prices are coming down!

A few weeks ago I told you about a peelie I spotted on the mayo jars. I used it when the mayo was BOGO. The peelie states "Get $1 off meat wyb any participating product". One of the products pictured is the Knoor Sides that will be BOGO beginning Thursday. If you still have that peelie, you can get $1 off meat. One idea is to buy the Johnsonville Sausage for $3.99 and use the $1 printable coupon. Then stack this $1 peelie and you will also get $2 off Tostitos Chips also! This would be great for the 4th of July.

I read an article not that long ago that caught my attention. I don't use enough milk in my house but I may just have to give this a try just because it sounds so interesting. I usually buy skim milk. Maybe every once in a while I will buy 1 percent but for the most part it's fat free for me. I just read to buy whole milk and dilute with water. I think it said to do half and half but I think I would do 3/4 milk and 1/4 water to start. My husband just asked me what I was blogging about and he just laughed when I told him this milk story! I'm willing to give it a try and not tell him!

I came across some of these facts to make life simpler for those living alone. Store leftover wine in a small mason jar. Make sure to fill it all the way so air can't get in. Once you’re done with your soda for the day ( 2 liter bottle) shake it up before putting it back in the fridge. It’ll stay fizzy for weeks. Spray Windex around and in front of the feet of the appliance you’re trying to move. It will slide much more easily. Pre-make pancake batter and store it in a ketchup bottle in the refrigerator. It will keep for a week. Add toothpaste to the back of a picture where the nail will go. Press on the walls and the toothpaste will leave a mark where to put the nail. And finally, use dishwasher soap, like Dawn, and hot water to unclog a toilet. Just put in toilet before plunging.


I stopped in Save-A-Lot today to pick up some more boneless skinless chicken breast and grapes. The sale is on u til Sunday so take advantage of it while you can. I have noticed chicken breast going up in price so I decided to put my seal-a-meal to use and stock up! Be careful if you do decide to go. Some of the packages are marked $2.49 lb. and the sign says $2.49. There are some in the case for $1.99 so make sure you grab the correctly priced packages. I am still lucky enough to have a $5/$25 coupon so it was like I got a package for free. My trip to Publix to get a few necessities like potato rolls was a success also. My total before coupons was just over $32 and I paid $7.48!

If you haven't printed your coupon yet, there is a $1 coupon HERE for Johnsonville sausage. It will be on sale for $3.99 again beginning Thursday. Buy 2, use two coupons, and then use the coupon from the Publix Summer Savings for $2 off any Tostitos. I know I will be needing these for the 4th of July. These are a little pricy so if you are buying Italian Sausage anyways, pick up a cheap bag of Tostitos. Also, Oscar Mayer lunchmeat is supposed to be BOGO also. There is a $1 coupon in the Savings Are Stocking Up Publix book. Use two and get a great deal on lunchmeat.


Smart Balance Buttery Spread is going to be BOGO beginning tomorrow. It wasn't listed in IHP, but we have a $1/1 coupon in the 6/2 SS. That should make them about $.80 each if the price is correct. It's so hard to try to catch all the coupons we have in different inserts than those that are listed. If you should ever see any, please let us know!

Want a free roll of toilet paper? I know it's only one roll, but I'll take anything for free! Go HERE to sign up and Scott will send you a coupon for a free roll of toilet paper! Hopefully they will throw in some other coupons with it!

Do you need some cheap toothpaste? Crest is on sale at Winn Dixie for three days only. It is on sale for $.99 each and there is a $2/3 coupon in the 6/2 PG. That makes them about $.35 each! The bone-in chicken breast for $.99 lb. is a good deal also. Scott toilet tissue is on sale for $4.99 and their is a $.75 coupon in the 5/12 SS.

If you are buying the Hellman's Mayo that is BOGO this week, look at the small jars right below it on the shelf. I was at the Cobblestone store and saw peelies for SAVE $1 ON MEAT WYB 2 MAYO. You may have to look at the jars in the back, but there were still a lot of jars left with peelies. I used my peelie to buy Cumberland Ham Chunks that are bogo and paid $2.39 for two packages. That is something I never buy and I can see some omlettes with ham, cheese, and tomato in my future!

Did you know Target gives free samples away just for asking? Go to and see if they are offering a sample for the day. When they run out they they will tell you to come back another day. Just keep checking back to their site

Playtex gloves are BOGO this week at $2.49. Go to and use zip 85726 and print off two $1 coupons and pay just $.25 per pair. I am not a playtex glove kind of person, but these might be handy to have on hand in an emergency!


I thought today started out to be a good day. I did two Publix trips, one of which consisted of 8 body wash, 5 yogurt, Clairol Root Touch Up, 2 mayo, 2 Campbell's skillet sauce, CoverGirl Eyeshadow and another Lipshine and 2 packages of diced ham for about $.25!! The Covergirl Lipshine was priced wrong again so I got $5 back! Then I got home and realized two of my computers blew up! What are the chances of two of them going out at the same time. I am on my laptop and it has issues also! Make sure you don't miss the Edy's Outshine Fruit Bars Deal. They are bogo $4.79. The $1/1 blinkie is in front of them. Buy 6 and use 6 of those and two B2G1 free Publix coupons from the Summer Savings Advantage Flyer and get them all for a $1.21 moneymaker! Now I have to go and find room in the freezer!

The deals at CVS have been pretty slim for me lately. I decided to do the Huggies diaper deal so I could roll the $10 ECB'S. Buy 3 huggies diapers at $10 each and use the $3 coupon from HERE. You will need three computers to access this coupon. It is a PDF coupon but you can only use it once. I did not test this theory to see ifit was correct. I just used three computers. If you have a $10 ECB use it here also and pay $12.20 including tax for 3 pkgs and get back another 10 ECB.


I was at Target today and scored on a umbrella to go over my pool. They were on sale last week but someone forgot to take the sign down so I got it for the $2.99 price, instead of $499. I also noticed a square "wood" table on clearance for $49. They also had parson type chairs to go around on clearance for $39. It would be perfect for the college student in your life! They also had various ottomans on clearance 30% off and some were really cute and different. Also, check out the ready to assemble department. There were many deals there as well.


I was totally shocked that I was able to get 4 gas cards this week! Woo hoo!!! I really thought I was only going to be able to get one. I was able to do it in separate $50 transactions at two stores. The best thing was I was able to spend $50 and use the $10 gas card coupon and my WD coupon. I did this both at SR 16 and the beach store. Some people reported that they had to spend $80 to use both. That was not the case for me. My best one of the four trips was as follows. I had a RC for SmartBalance milk for 2 for $5. I bought 10 of them and 8 Sundown vitamins. My total including the $50 gas card was $45.22! That means I paid $5.22 for 10 milk and the vitamins. I used the vitamins as a moneymaker. My other trips were good also but this one was the best!
