Marshalls has some good kids toys including Disney and Melissa and Doug. I was able to buy a $29.99 crane that I have seen at HomeGoods. It is made in Germany and it is awesome! My grandson has about 5 of these including firetruck, front loader, etc. and he loves them! They are very well made and have all kinds of interactive gadgets on them. Christmas is just around the corner. Plus I have 4 grandkids birthdays between mid Oct. and Dec. Thank goodness I was able to get some good deals from Target last January.


Looking for a good wine on the cheap? According to Consumer R exports, Costco's Kirkland Signature Sonoma $7 is an excellent choice. Another is Trackers Crossing 365, also $7, at Whole Foods. And finally the last recommendation, which is one I have heard on many occasions, is Trader Joes Charles Shaw for just $3! I would like to try this just to see how good a $3 bottle of wine is! I bet it would be a great choice for cooking! Another favorite is Costco's Kirkland Signature Ultra Clean Pacs. This laundry detergent is suitable for all types of washers. While you are at Costco picking up your $7 bottle of wine, pick up some laundry detergent for just $.14 per load

What kids don't like fruit snacks? These were supposed to go to my grandkids, but my 20 year old said she wanted them. Maybe if you have a raincheck like I did you can do the same deal. My raincheck was for Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks BOGO. They are on sale for $2 each which means $1 each with my BOGO raincheck. After the sale and two $2 off wyb 4 PQ's and four $1/2 Mq's, I got 8 of them for FREE! I did the same thing with the Fiber One Chewy Bars. They were on sale for $2.50 each so $10 for 8. Used MQ and PQ and paid $2 for 8 boxes! It rocks when you let those rainchecks work for you!

What could make a good day even better? The McCormick Spice coupon reset for me! Go to and use zipcode 55401 and print another set of $2 coupons. Remember to stack these with the Publix coupon in the Advantage Flyer. I bought the ground peppercorns and got overage!


You are going to start to see the Halloween candy deals. This week nestle fun-size bars are BOGO at $6.59. The $1/2 coupon from the 9/15 SS was listed in the matchups but the $1/2 target coupon was not listed! Stack both of these and pay $2.25 per bag. Not as good as the $1 Snickers bars I got last week at Walgreens but my husband really wanted these!


I love when I see the Nabisco cracker lady in Publix. You know her when you see her. She is tiny and wears all black and has on black gloves. You don't see many people walking around Publix looking like her! You know she is there to stock the shelves and with the black-gloved lady comes coupons! Go over to the shelf and you will usually see coupons just stuck in front of items! Today was no different. There were $1/2 coupons for Ritz Chips and she had just put peelies on the Nabisco Ritz Crackers for $1/2 and they are BOGO this week. Keep your eyes peeled for the cracker lady and those coupons.

If your husband is a big fan of V8 juice like mine, I found another place to print the $1/2 coupon. Go to and print it two times to be able to buy four more bottles. The other place to print them is Remember, when you stack these with the $1/1 publix coupons, you should pay about $1 per bottle. I am down to my last few so this sale came just at the right time. I think I remember it coming at the right time last time I bought also! I just wish I had access to more printable V8 MQ's! Anyone not using theirs?

Don't you just love when you get a deal that you were not planning on? I had a Raincheck for Rold Gold Tomatoes when they were BOGO. They were on sale for $1 each and after I stacked my MQ and the PQ, I was able to get 10 for free!! I just love when that happens! The Edge shaving cream is another freebie when you use the BOGO MQ and two $1 TQ's. I was also thrilled to get 12 cans of tomato paste today for $1.20. My bill before coupons was $31.80 and I paid $5.10.

You may have noticed a $2 Publix coupon for Maybelline mascara in the new GAF. I bought the falsies mascara and love it! It rang up $5.99 and then I got the $2 off. That is a great price for mascara if you can't find a ECB deal at CVS. Too bad there isn't a MQ to stack with it!

Dillards is running their last sale of the year where you take an additional 40 percent off the reduced prices. I began today for cardholders and will continue through Saturday or Sunday. I am not sure. This will be the last percent off sale until the sale after Christmas.

As you guys read this post, I will be drinking my prep for a colonoscopy tomorrow. I have to mix Miralax, aka nuclear laxative, with peach tea and wait for the good times to begin. I picked peach tea because I am hoping I will never want to drink it again after today! It might be the best way to wean me off of it! I think I have to drink what feels like 22 gallons of fluid! Having done this once before 4 years ago, I know what to expect. In a few hours I will be confined to the bathroom. At 8:00 I have to take two more pills in addition to the two I already took and the 22 gallons of peach tea. That is when my bowels will start eliminating food that I have not even eaten yet! On a more serious note, the reason I am telling you all this is to remind you to get a colonoscopy. I got one at 53 and was told to come back 3 years later. I waited until 4. Don't do what I did and put it off. My doctor said I should have been back in one year. I'm just looking forward to the best sleep in my life tomorrow! And in case you are wondering, yes...I did buy the Miralax with a coupon and a sale!


UPDATE ON BIC RAZORS: I stopped at the Cobblestone store today and they were out! I then went to the Moultrie store and they were fully stocked. I just wanted to let you know to not stop at the Cobblestone store today if you wanted to do the Bic Razor deal for $.79


I am so excited about the return of this coupon! Bic Razors are on sale at Publix in the new green flyer for $4.79. When I was at under zip 33033, HERE, I saw the Bic Razor coupon has reset and I was able to get 4 more prints from my computers! If you still have the TQ, you can get razors for $.79 a package! While you are there, print the BOGO coupon for Edge Shave Gel and another $2 McCormick Spice coupon. I was able to get my pepper grinders for free! If the link doesn't work above, go to and change the zip code to 33033.

I have been told that the Moultrie Publix does not make you split your order. Are there any of you out there that shop here on a regular basis? I so, please let me know if this is the case for you also. Cobblestone still makes you split your order so sometimes it may be handy to shop there if you don't want to be bothered with splitting your order.


If you didn't get your Edge Shave Gel this week at Publix (today was the last day), you may want to go to CVS and use your BOGO Edge Shave Gel coupon. Buy 4 shave gel and use two BOGO coupons. You will get back $4 in ECB'S and end up paying about $.60 each. I stacked the TQ with mine at Publix and paid $.50 each plus it went towards my $30 total.

Are you going to the Mumford concert? There were people all over town today trying to get people to pull into their lot. The best deal on parking I could see was at the Methodist church, or better known as the pumpkin church, just west of the post office. They are charging $20. Everyone else around is charging $30. It's pretty close and you could get put to US 1 quickly. As for me, I'm riding my bike over the bridge just to check out the festivities!!

Be on the lookout for another new coupon booklet. I haven't seen this one but Michelle picked up a few for me at the Moultrie store. It is called Internationally Inspired Recipes. I am excited about the Rold Gold Tomatoes Coupon for $1/4 because I have a raincheck for them. The PQ will make them $.44 a can. If I can find a MQ, I will get even a better deal!


There is a new Publix sweepstakes deal going on now and all you have to do is sign up HERE and you have the chance to win a $100 Publix gift card. They will choose 500 winners and last year I was one of the winners! What a shock it was when I opened the mail to find a $100 Publix gift card. I ended up giving it to my daughter in college. Don't think that you can't win. Take a few minutes and enter!

A friend of mine just posted on Facebook that her husbands credit card was compromised at the Hess gas station across from the south entrance for the second time!! The bank told him that this happens frequently at this location and to only use cash there. Beware of using a credit card at this location!

I was in the Cobblestone Publix today and found the new MAKE IT ITALIAN booklet. The coupons are also available to print online but I was only able to print from my one computer. They are located in a free-standing box across from the pharmacy.


When you are in Publix, look for a blinkie in the juice isle for $1/1 Waterfruits Juice, 8 pk. It sells for $2.69 and it is a new product. Because it is new, I hope we see a BOGO sale on it soon. That means we will see some real cheap juice boxes for the kids


Have you entered to win a coupon for a FREE GALLON OF MILK? When you go HERE, you will be able to enter for a chance to win free milk. I did about a week ago and found an email with a link to a smartsource coupon for free milk up to $4.00!! I was able to print it twice. Now I have two coupons that don't expire until October 9th. I believe you can even use another email address and name and enter to get another set of coupons!

If you missed out on the Edge Shave Gel deal a few weeks back at Publix, I think you may be able to do it again. If you still have the BOGO Edge Shave Gel Coupon, stack with the new $1/1 Target coupon that just came out. I think the Edge sells for about $3.50. After the BOGO MQ and the TQ's, you should pay about $.75 each. I am just guessing on the price of the shave gel. I know that it won't be any more than that.

I found a loop hole in the target policy by accident and thought I would let you know about it. My husband bought an aerobed online at target for our camper. The following week we went into camping world to buy some caulking and came out with a camper! Yep, that was one expensive bottle of caulking! We actually found a deal we couldn't pass up. We got the exact ultra light style we wanted that was on consignment. Turns out the older couple that bought it only used it once and were intimated by towing it. We were able to get a "new" 2012 for the price of a used. Ok, back to the air mattress. When we bought the camper we no longer needed the air mattress because we now have a real mattress in it. I returned it and they credited my card for $98 and turned right around and put it back on the shelf (unopened) for $40. I didn't know it until today when we went back into target and there it was on the shelf still with our address label on it. There it was marked down to $40. Before I left I went up to the customer service desk and the same girl was there that took it back. She said it is considered a soft goods item and it automatically gets marked down and put back on the shelf even though it was unopened. We ended up buying it again because for $40 it was worth it to have it for an extra bed! Go figure!

We had to go to Walmart tonight to get some stuff for our camper. I think I was the only one in the store who didn't have any food items in my cart. Everyone else was stocking up and all I did was price match the green or red grapes. If you have to head to Walmart, and we all know we don't shop at Walmart anymore, grab the Save-A-Lot Ad that is delivered to your house and price match the grapes for $.99 lb. Also, I hope you grabbed the $5/$50 coupon that was in the Winn Dixie insert!


Just wanted to point this one out in case you missed it! There is a $.75/2 coupon for Cascadian Farms on Stack with the Publix coupon in the Green Advantage Flyer (GAF) .BUY TWO, use ONE $2.00/2 PUBLIX coupon and use TWO $.75/1 MFG coupons and you pay $.74 each!!


It's time to clean out your box again! Here are the inserts that could be discarded from the last time I posted. 2013-07-28 FL pg 2013-07-07 FL pg 2013-05-19 FL rp 2013-05-12 FL rp 2013-05-05 FL rp 2013-04-28 FL rp 2013-04-21 FL ss 2013-04-14 FL ss 2013-04-07 FL ss 2013-04-07 FL rp1 & rp2 2013-03-24 FL ss 2013-03-17 FL rp 2013-03-10 FL rp 2013-03-03 FL ss 2013-02-10 FL ss 2013-01-20 FL ss All 2010 inserts should be discarded.


In case you haven't heard, Outback is currently running a deal for $15 for a steak, side, and all you can eat shrimp. The shrimp are available three ways. This deal won't last long! My husband already informed me that we are going there Saturday night! I'll let you know how it was.


If you are a fan of Not Your Daughters Jeans, then head over to Marshall's where they have the skinny legging jeans for $49. They have two of every size from size 8'to 14. They fit wonderful and that is a great price. I also had to go to Target and noticed they took another markdown in their ladies department.

There is a new $2 Bic Razor coupon that showed up on smart source. If you still have the $2 Target coupon, you can get a package of razors for $1.79, regularly $5.79. It's not as good as the deal that ended at the end of the month but you can make this one work for you also. The ad next week is a little lackluster for me. I can't even find anything I am buying with the new ad! With that being said, if you need something to bring your total up to $50 to get the gas card, consider spending $1.79 and using the razor deal to get your total up. It will be less if you use a $5/$30.

We have finally decided to do it. We are going to sell our 2006 Aerolite Cub travel trailer. We think we found one we like and if checks out, which it should, we are going to buy it. I wanted to post it here in case anybody knows of someone looking for a good reliable camper. I put it on craigslist and the pictures can be viewed there. We have had so much fun in it and I will be sad to see it go!
