I just wanted to make sure you guys knew about the Carrabba's coupon in the 8/11 SS. The coupon is for $10 off when you purchase two entrees. You have got to try the deal they have where you could pick something out of each category. I tried the Lentil Sausage soup and it was awesome! You can pick from Sorloim Marsalla, Salmon or Chicken Bryan. Then choose from lasagna, ravioli or manacotti. The third group is cavatoppi, spaghetti, or fettuccine Alfredo. You can also get a salad I stead of the soup. After you use your coupon, you pay $21 for both meals. The coupon expires on 9/30. Another thing is that Carrabba's takes their coupons for two weeks past expiration. Make sure you tell that to your server because they all don't know about it!


A lady stopped me in Publix today to ask me if the purse I was carrying was a Coach purse. I told her it was and, of course, couldn't resist telling her the good deal I got on it! She said she had seen it on the Coach website on clearance and was afraid to order it. Now that she had seen it she was going online again to order. She said she signs up for alerts when bags go on sale and clearance. I haven't investigated it yet, but you might want to sign up for Coach alerts if you don't want to miss a deal on a Coach bag! I also ran into Kate, a fellow couponer who is just adorable!

I am so excited about this deal!! At of you who know me know that my hair is very frizzy and curly with the humidity. No matter what I do I can't control the frizz. I have spent countless dollars on serums and oils only to have nothing work. My hairdresser told me I was the perfect candidate for the keratin treatment which costs $150 at Panache. I just can't seem to wrap my head around the fact that it costs $150 and lasts about three months. My friend has been getting the keratin express treatment from Miko Salon, also an Aveda Salon, for over a year now and loves it! She originally bought it on a Living Social deal and, in her words, has hair like a white person now! Well, the deal just came back and I purchased two at $37 each! I researched it and it gets rave reviews. If any of you are like me and would like to be frizz-free for three months you can purchase it also. She said she just gets up in the morning and doesn't even have to blow dry her hair! Regular price is $65. I am going to be one happy camper. Use this link to purchase yourself.

My new BFF from Dillards called me tonight to tell me that the markdowns have changed at the store today. She said everything that was 40 percent off went to 65 percent off. Items that were regular price are now 40 percent off. I had something in mind that I saw and she found them and are holding them for me until next Thursday!! Her name is Josephine and she is a wonderful salesperson that I met when I was in there a month ago. She called me when the store offered an additional 40 percent off sales prices and will continue to call me whenever they offer a sale. It is something they do for their customers and I am now on her list! When you go to the Avenues Dillards look for Josephine in the women's or petite department. I take all my purchases to her from other departments.

I was so excited when I opened my Bic Razors and found $2 coupons inside some of them! I purchased 20 coupons and have found four $2 coupons in the packages that I bought. Look for the coupon inside the package. You can see it. Make sure you check your packages! You have until the end of the month to get the razors for $4.99.

I stopped at Dollar General today to pick up some Purex Crystals. When I got to the register with my coupons, the cashier told me they no longer let you stack a MQ with their store coupon. I would have got each bottle for $1.50. Just be informed that you can no longer stack coupons at DG!

Looking to buy a new TV? According to Consumer Reports, if you want a price-friendly TV with very good picture quality, take a look at the Samsung g 43 inch PN43E450 for just $400..


Did you know that you get more from your batteries when you use batteries that are the same age and brand. According to Consumer Reports, Duracell was the top performer among AA batteries and cost $2 per pair. The Panasonic was lower-rated overall and cost $3 per pair. Bounty makes the top paper towel, but costco's Kirkland brand are very good and costs about percent less. If you coupon, you shouldn't have to buy to many at Costco! Wisk Deep Clean out-cleaned Tide Total Care and is about half the price of Tide! The Bissell CleanView Helix Deluxe 71V9 for just $100 is an amazing bargain and weighs just 16 lbs. so to is a pleasure to push around. According to CR, it is superb on floors and pet hair ad impressive on carpet. Looking to find the best tomato sauce? Forget Ragu (unless, of course you get it for free) and buy Giada De Laurentis Tomato Basil Sauce from Target $3 or Mario Batali Marinara sauce for $8. Cascade Complete gets "the white out" and just costs $.29 per load. And reading glasses from the drugstore are perfectly fine for your eyes!


I hope some of you were able to get to the dillards clearance sale. I was able to get a $299 Coach bag for $60!!! It is the one I wanted and wouldn't pay the money. It doesn't look like your typical coach bag and that is why I loved it! I also got a maxi dress today for $11, and various pieces of jewelry for $5 each. I was also lucky enough to find my favorite Westbound shorts in white for $7 a pair, regular $30. I was on the hunt for white shorts to take on my cruise. I was also able to pick up a Hobo wallet for $50 for my daughter for her birthday. It usually sells for $89. Once you have a Hobo wallet you will not want any other. I just love mine. I believe the sale goes on through the weekend. My advice is to go to the Towne Center. It has a much better variety!

If there are any of you who love Dillard's, they will be offering their final percent off deal beginning tomorrow if you have a Dillard's card. The next big sale won't be until January 1st. If you do not have their card you will not be able to shop until Thursday. I am not sure if they will be offering 30 or 40 percent off the reduced prices. When I was there last weekend, I noticed TONS of items already at 65% off. Add the extra percentage on top of that and you will get some great deals! I love Yellow Box flip flops and they were already reduced to $8.75. That should make them a little over $5 per pair. They are the only kind I can wear so that is a great deal for me! I scoped out some things and plan on going back to get some great deals!


For those of you wanting to do the razor deal, I told you that you could get a raincheck. I remembered that you CANNOT get a raincheck on green advantage flyer deals. You will have to get all your deals done by the end of the month when the flyer expires.


I traveled to palm coast today to visit my daughter. Naturally we stopped at target and TJ Maxx and I started talking with the manager of the store. I told her I wished we had a TJ Maxx in St. Augustine because I think this town would support it. She leaned it to me and said, I'm not supposed to tell anyone but they are supposed to build a store in St. Augustine and I hope to be the manager of that store!! I don't know where they would go but I am kind of excited about this even being a possibility!!


I called today on the ETC books and they are going to be shipping the second week of September the latest. There is a chance they may ship the week before. I will let everyone know as soon as I get them!

This is the time of year I get my razors for free. I only had four $3/1 coupons so I just ordered another 20 coupons for 4.24. When you stack the $3 coupon with the $2 target coupon, you get free razors until the end of the month! They will sell out so make sure you get a Raincheck to use when the sale is over!

Here is an update on the ETC books. I ordered them July 19th and the confirmation said to expect them in 4 to 6 weeks. Hopefully they will show up on my doorstep in the next few weeks. I will let you know as soon as I get them!
