As you may have noticed, my posts have become far and few between. Yes, the time has come to shut down the blog. I have enjoyed blogging, especially in the early days when I would post a picture of everything I bought with a receipt! For some reason, this new format will not allow me to post pictures or even do separate paragraphs. I appreciate every one of you who have commented and helped all of us save money. I didn't know the WD north of town or the beach would still take two coupons! After reading that comment, I will now continue to occasionally shop at WD with a good coupon and a sale! Thank you guys for everything and please continue to send me good deals and comments at my email or my phone 904-540-5225!

Just a heads up! I went to the Winn Dixie on SR 207 and was told I could only use 1 coupon with a BOGO sale. I don't know if all the WD's are the same but that is the last time I will go there. I am hoping the beach stores policy is different and will allow 2 coupons on a bogo. Has anybody had the same experience? I was hoping they would start accepting competitor coupons but it looks like they are going the other direction!!!


This is the week to buy vitamins at Walgreens really cheap! Buy one Centrum Silver and one Centrum Regular, both on sale for $9.99. You will get one 50% off. Use a $5/2 from the Walgreens July coupon book and two $4/1 from the 7/13 RP. You will pay $1.99 or $.99 each. You can also do with the Flavor Burst vitamins! At Walgreens: BUY ONE CENTRUM SILVER 100 ct – on sale BOGO 50% off $9.99 BUY ONE CENTRUM REGULAR 120 ct – on sale BOGO 50% off $9.99 use one $5/2 Centrum Multivitamins 100 – 200 ct or Flavor Burst 120 ct Walgreens July Coupon Booklet use one $4/1 Centrum Silver Multivitamin RP 7/13 use one $4/1 Centrum Multivitamin RP 7/13 Net Price: $1.99 ($.99 each!) BUY TWO CENTRUM FLAVORBURST 120 ct – on sale BOGO 50% off $9.99 use one $5/2 Centrum Multivitamins 100 – 200 ct or Flavor Burst 120 ct Walgreens July Coupon Booklet use two $4/1 Centrum Flavor Burst, Chewables or Liquid Multivitamin RP 7/13 Net Price: $1.99 ($.99 each!)


We just got back from camping at Jetty Park in Cocoa Beach and enjoyed our time there. We already booked another trip in September and yet another next July! For those of you who camp you must check it out! The sites are small but we hand-picked the sites we wanted to be on the next time. OK...back to coupon news! There was a $1/2 peelie I saw about 6 weeks ago on Zatarains Rice. Check your binders to see if you have this peelie. It is not listed in the coupon match-ups. You will score some pretty cheap Zatarains Rice!

There is a 70% off coke cartwheel today only at Target. You can only do one deal but bring a friend and both can do a deal! Great price on coke!

About a month ago Mid's Pasta Sauce was BOGO and there was a PDF printable coupon available. It had a long expiration date of 8/31/14. If you have any of these left, you will pay $1.30 for a bottle of pasta sauce. I bought two last time but have not tried it yet. Has anyone else ever tried this brand of pasta sauce? I usually make mine from scratch like I did this weekend using 4 large cans of crushed tomatoes. But if I could get a good deal on pasta sauce, I buy it and doctor it up!

Here is another MM for you! Buy Cesar Canine Cuisine at $.70 each on sale. Use the B2G1 printable from You will have to go to a database and print it because I cannot put the link here anymore. Print two of those and stack that with three $1/2 Cesar Canine Cuisine Trays RP 6/1. You will buy six and get $.20 in overage! Again, a nice deal to put towards your gas card total!


Go to to get a coupon for $1.50 off any EAS product. The protein bars are priced at $1.39 at publix so you they are a MM! Every little bit helps when you are trying to get to the $50 to get the gas card deal. Also, if anyone in your house in on a low-dose aspirin , use the $2/1 Bayer coupon in the 6/15 RP to pay $.69 a box. Also, there is a printable SS coupon for $1 off Kikkoman Soy Sauce. Buy the small bottle for $1.19 and pay just $.19 each! Just a FYI for all of you who chose to shop at the SR 16 Publix...they are limiting Sundown vitamin purchases to 2 per person. On the flip side, they do not make you split your orders to use the $5/30 so I shop there!

Check your email and if you are signed up to get coupons from Carrabba's, you will love this one! There is a coupon for $12 that is good until July 6th. You will get a 6 oz. sirloin and lobster ravioli plus soup or salad and vegetable for $12! That doesn't include all the yummy bread you can eat! Carrabba's has always taken their coupons for two weeks past expiration for me so you may want to print another in case you want to go back!


There is a BOGO coupon for Johnsonville Sausage or Bratwurst on under zip 62946. They are on sale this week at WD for $4.99 each. The coupon says use at Winco in small print but it looks like it is still a MQ so they should take it. I plan on buying 6 packages and a banana to get me to $30. After using three MQ's and my $5/$30, I should pay $10 for 6 packages of bratwurst or sausage!


For those of you who like the Loreal Everpure Shampoo/Conditioner line, there is a good deal this week at Publix. They are on sale 2/$12. There is a $2 MQ and a $1 TQ making them just $3 each! I buy the color care one and I really like it! I have heard some people say it is their favorite kind of shampoo. I stocked up on Dove weeks back when we got it cheap but they did not offer a color care variety and I think it is stripping my hair of the color. Coloring my hair is not one of my favorite things, so I think I will just use that sparingly and go back to a color care product!


The Smithfield bacon coupon has reset and is a high value of $1/1. Winn Dixie has the bacon on sale this week BOGO so we should be able to pick up a lb. of bacon for just $3. I don't know if you have noticed it, but the price of bacon has skyrocketed! I am taking this opportunity to stock up on bacon using my $5/$30 coupon!

Couponlynn had asked a question that I totally missed! Sorry Lynn! Yes, the SR 16 store will let you use multiple Target coupons. I have not had any problem there. My friend, Margie, went to SR 16 because I told her they would not make you split up your order and she was able to use about 5 WD coupons at one time! That is awesome and in my opinion worth going to the SR 16 store for! Let us know what your experience is at the SR 16 store.


You may have noticed the posts have been far and few between. I just don't have it in me anymore to post daily or post all the good deals I see. It is just too time consuming and, frankly, not enough people read the blog since I have scaled down. I will try to post if I see a good deal! So here is a good deal! Go to and you will be able to print two $1/1 coupons! PAM is BOGO this week so we should get it for about $.80 a can. That is a great stock up price.

Want to get some Garnier Fructis shampoo/conditioner and Speed Stick deodorant for next to nothing? You can change up your scenario but this is what I did. First transaction I bought six Garnier shampoo and used the $2/1 from I think the 5/4 SSMand the $5 off $15 target printable on personal items. I also bought three 2-packs of a speed Stick deodorant. There is a 2/1 coupon from and a target printable. It is listed under personal care and look for $1 select items and a deodorant is pictured. After all the coupons I got a great deal!


When you are looking for a coupon do you stop if you can't find it? For example, a blog may say there is a $1 coupon for Pedigree in the 4/27 SS and you look there and can't find it. I always go to the RP and look there also. This just happened to me when I was looking for a $1 Pedigree coupon for my daughter. The 4/27 SS was called "Paw It Forward" so you would think it would obviously be in there. That insert was loaded with tons of dog food coupons. But it wasn't. I looked in the RP and there it was. The moral of the story is to make sure you look in the other insert because you may find them there!

Just an update on the ETC books. I have three sets of 10 left to purchase. If anyone would like a set of 10 for $25, please text or email me and let me know. The new WD coupons are now $10 off $50 and will expire 12/31/14.

Saturday, June 7, 2014


It felt like the good old days when I dropped into Publix this evening after church. I did two transactions. The first I bought 9 Dove Shampoo/Conditioner. a 6-pack of Brawney paper towels and a loaf of deli bread. My total was $2.52. $1.44 of that was tax!! My second transaction was 4 BIC razors, 2 Sundown Vitamins, 2 Hellmans and another Brawney Paper Towel. This time my total was $.84. Yes, for a fleeting moment I was brought back to the good old days!


In yesterday's Compass in the St. Augustine Record, there is a coupon for 15% off any one item for the store I work at called PEACE LOVE HOME. Not only can you use this on a furniture purchase and get 15% off, but you can use on jewelry, lotions, purses, scarves, and accessories. Stop by and check us out! The coupon expires on 6/12.

Thursday, June 5, 2014


Be on the lookout for $1 peelies on the Brawney paper towels. They Re on sale for $5.99 so you will pay $5 a package. That is a great. Price so make sure you get a few packages! Zatarins rice is on sale for $1 each. Look for peelies all over the packages for $1 off 2. Pay just $.50 each


Go to Dollar General this week and pick up a 4-pack of Angel soft toilet paper for $.55 each. Make sure you ask them if the toilet paper is also on another shelf in the store. The beach store had it in two locations. Use the $.45 coupon in the 5/18 RP


I might order 100 books from ENJOY THE CITY with the WD coupon in it. The coupon will expire 12/31/14 and is now a $5 off $50 coupon. I will sell the books for $25 for 10. You must arrange to pick them up. If you are interested, text me at 540-5225. If I can get enough people I will order multiple sets. I will not place another order this year.

Monday, June 2, 2014


Here's one for you just in case you missed it. How about putting together a basket for your Father's Day? You can get Edge Shave Gel for just over $.50 each until Friday this week at Publix. Use two $1/2 coupons from the 4/27 SS and a $3/2 PQ from the PAF. This is my husbands favorite shave gel! Throw in a few razors that I know you guys have around the house and you have an instant gift! Your husband may not appreciate it but your father probably would!


We just got back from a weekend of camping at Salt Springs. It seems like we go through a lot of paper towels on those weekends. Let me rephrase seems like my husband goes through a lot of paper towels on a camping weekend. Paper towels are his favorite thing and we all know they are not cheap! This is my time of year to stock up on paper towels. The current ad has bounty on sale and the new ad had Brawny on sale for $4.99 with coupon. This is a stock-up price for me! He had just said we were getting low in the paper towel department! Be sure to stock-up if you use paper towels! Also, I spotted $1 All peelies at the Dollar General in Salt Springs. Those will also come in handy with the All detergent sale!

If you are planning at eating at Olive Garden, go to their website at and print out a 20% coupon! This deal is available until June 8th. If you don't have the coupon with you, just pull it up on your smartphone and show it to them and it will work also!


I am all over laundry detergent deals like most of you. When I can get a bottle of detergent for under $2 a bottle, that is when I stock up! Head to Walgreens beginning 6/11 and pay only $1.99 after using the $1 printable MQ. Go to and print yours today! Remember, Redplum only offers a limited number of prints so I would print this one sooner than later. Maybe we may even see a sale at Publix soon so we can use our $5/$30 coupon with it! I don't venture into Walgreens anymore, but I will for a laundry detergent deal!

Sunday, May 25, 2014


The Celebrate Summer booklet is at the Cobblestone Publix. They had them behind the desk and would only give me 2 of them. Make sure to be on the lookout for them!

Thursday, May 22, 2014


Has anyone else heard that we are getting an Aldi grocery store right next to the new Staples? According to their website you have to pick up a cart in a central location and pay a quarter. When you return the cart you get your $.25 back. I think you also bring your own bags they also only accept cash, debit cards and EBT. I don't think Publix will have to worry about having any competition!

Wednesday, May 21, 2014


Don't forget about the $10/$50 Target coupon that was in this past weekends Target insert or printable at It expires on 5/24 so you still have time to use it with the new ad! Love when I can save on things I already have to buy!

Tuesday, May 20, 2014


Resolve Laundry Spray will be BOGO in the new upcoming ad. After we use the $1 printable coupon from, we will pay just $.50 each. I just found a TRY ME FREE WITH MAIL-IN REBATE coupon in the 5/11 SS! Save your receipt and mail it in to make this one a moneymaker!

Monday, May 19, 2014


There is a double take deal right now for $10 worth of Chick-Fil-A food for $5. I bought two of these last time and used them when my grandkids were over. They are offering the deal again and you are allowed to buy one for yourself and one for a gift. I just used my husbands name for the second certificate. Don't wait too long because they will sell out! I also bought a $20 certificate for $10 to Red Frog McToads. Go to


In the GAF there is a sale on Weber seasoning for $2.19 for two. There is a coupon I found in the 5/11 RP for $1/1 Weber Seasoning. With this coupon, you will pay only $.10 per bottle! This is a perfect example of something I haven't seen in any of the blogs. I think sometimes we get different coupons and it is up to us to search them out!


I went into the SR 16 publix yesterday and split my order into three transactions. The person bagging for me was a customer service mgr and she told me that I didn't have to split my order anymore. I said you mean I don't have to do this anymore? She said originally you didn't have to, then you did, and now you don't have to again! What a relief to not have to split my order anymore! Check with your store and see if you have to continue to split the order to use the $5 off $30 WD coupons and let me know!

Saturday, May 17, 2014


Getting low on razors? Use the $3/1 coupon from the 5/4 SS and pair with the sale at Publix and pay only $.79 for a 4 pack of Bic Soleil, Flex 3 or Flex 4 razors.


The week of 5/25 we will be getting FREE Crest mouthwash as CVS. Crest Pro Health Whitening Rinse will be on sale for $4.99. Print the $1 coupon from and you will pay $3.99 but you will get back $4 in ECB's! Use the ECB's you have to pay nothing OOP!

Pepsi along with Publix is offering a gas card sweepstakes that you can enter one time per day. You can enter until May 26th so your chances of winning are greater! All you have to do is call 866-231-1223 and follow the prompts. I have been trying to enter every day. I won a $100 Publix gift card one time from one of these sweepstakes so it is worth it to try for it again! Good Luck!

At work we listen to WSOS, 99.5, songs from the 60's, 70's, and 80's. With this station I don't miss my Sirus radio anymore! Everyday between 5 and 6 pm they have something called Bargain Radio. They will offer certificates to local restaurants and attractions for 50% off. Yesterday I was able to get a coupon for 4 people on the El Gallion Pirate ship! I know 2 grandkids who are going to be so thrilled to go on it! They were also offering a $50 gift card for $25 for Conrad's Steakhouse and another for Tropical Smoothie. I didn't get to hear all the items today but I do know they were totally different then the ones the day before. I believe yesterday they were offering a coupon for 4 to the Pirate and Treasure Museum. What an awesome thing to do with your kids during the summer break. Tune in between 5 and 6 and see what you can pick up!


Looking for a deal on yogurt? Well, here you go! BUY FIFTEEN Yoplait Green Yogurt – $15.00 BUY FIVE Nature’s Valley Breakfast Biscuits – $18.45 total $33.45 before coupons USE ONE $5.00/$30.00 Winn Dixie Coupon (enjoy the city books) USE THREE $1/5 Yoplait Greek or Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt printable from USE FIVE $.50/1 Natures Valley Breakfast Biscuits coupon from 4/6 SS insert USE FIVE B3G1 Nature Valley Free Publix Coupon (new Green Advantage Flyer) YOU PAY $4.50 for ALL of it!

I hope you were one of the lucky ones to get the $1/1 coupon for the Bush's Best Cocina Latina Beans when they were sampling them at Publix, get ready to get some FREE beans! Beginning on Saturday, using the BOGO coupon in the GAF flyer and two $1 coupons, you can make this a moneymaker! Buy 2 cans of beans, use one PQ and two $1/1 and Publix will pay you $.31 to take 2 cans of beans out of the store! Yes, I am one of the lucky ones who got a few coupons. Yes, it came at a perfect time for me when the gas card is being offered. Again, I am only shooting for one card because there is really nothing for me in the ad. I hope you got some of those coupons also!

A big shout-out and THANK YOU to my friend Margie who gave me 6 Smart Balance Butter coupons. I hope you did this awesome deal last week. I was able to get a raincheck because they were out of the spreadable butter. They were BOGO for the large 15 oz. size and you were able to stack two $1 PQ's and 2 $.50 MQ's and pay just $.35 each! These normally run $3.69 each and it is my favorite butter (next to the real thing, of course)! I am stocking up at that price! Don't you just love those rainchecks and coupon stacks!!!


I love getting Dawn dish soap at CVS when I can get the small bottle for $.50 each. I like to use it as a filler for my never-ending ECB's and it is a great size for our camper. If you want to print the coupon now and hold it, use zip 77477 at and use next week at CVS!


I thought I would give you an update on my Smart Balance Milk! I wouldn't believe this if you told me but my milk expired on April 8th and as of today it is STILL GOOD! I smelled it first and didn't smell anything wrong. So I figured I would go for it and take a sip. Perfect...tasted like milk! So here we are just a day over 2 weeks and the milk is still good! That is great news for those of us who don't go through a lot of milk!

Monday, April 21, 2014


Just a FYI that the gas card deal should be coming back the week of May 1 - May 7! I read it on another blog along with a sneak peek of that ad! Go to and you will see it for yourself! I am excited about stocking up on Clorox bleach using my $2/$3 coupon! Not all the matchups are done yet but it is awesome to see the NEW NEW ad! Save those rainchecks and pull them out in a few weeks!


I am struggling to come up with enough stuff in this new ad to use my $5/$30 coupon. I found this deal to help me out. Lubriderm 6 oz. is $3.29 each. Use the $1.50/1 in the PAF and the $1.50 printable coupon and pay only $.29 each. The cats pride cat litter is BOGO $6.99. Use the $2/1 MQ from 3/2 SS and $2/1 PQ from the Paws booklet or printable and it is FREE plus moneymaker! Also, NY Texas Toast is 50% off and when you use the $1 printable coupon you will pay under $.50 each! Stouffers Lasagna and Muellers Pasta round out my list. Actually I now plan on doing two transactions buying 6 Cats Pride Litter at one time and throwing in another lasagna and some produce! Big surprise I can actually use two WD coupons with this ad!


I was in Target today and noticed they had kids jeans, up to size 5 for just $3.00 a pair! They had the adjustable waist with the button also. They were marked 70% off and were such a great deal! Unfortunately, the only one I have to buy for in that size is in south florida so they don't need jeans! Head to Target to check them out if you need any!

We don't drink much milk here at our house so I prefer to buy Smart Balance milk because of its LONG expiration date. I really prefer to get it for $1 a 1/2 gallon with coupons and a sale! My husband is one that if the date says April 8, 2014, he is throwing it in the trash. You cannot always go by those dates. My Smart Balance milk is dated April 8th and I was still able to use it this morning! I keep waiting for it to start turning and it has not yet! So for those of you that stick right by the date this is proof that you can't always do that! I am going to check and use it everyday for my oatmeal. I can't wait to see just how far it will last past that date!

Wednesday, April 16, 2014


I can't remember if I ever told you guys but I found a blog that reports the Publix ad on Sunday evening instead of Monday morning. I LOVE that I can preview the ad at night and print my coupons before everyone else in the morning! Check it out at

Monday, April 14, 2014


Want some free strawberries to go with the cheap Sara Lee poundcake you can get at Publix this week? Head to Target where strawberries are on sale for $1.50. Use the $1/$1+ fresh fruit Target mobile coupon (text THANKS to 827438 and use the $.50 coupon when you sign up at


I went into Publix tonight to use my $10 coupon and ran across something that rung up full price that was supposed to be on sale. The McCormick Grill Mates were clearly marked $.99, save $3.90 on the shelf. On top of that I had $.75 off coupons. When they rang up, they rang up full price. I brought it to her attention and she sat there and scoured the ad for the sale. I told her I didn't know if it was in the ad and I ran back and got the sticker off the shelf. You know what that means! They gave both of them to me for free plus I still used my $.75 off coupons! If you do this deal and it rings up full price, make sure you bring it to their attention. I was at the beach store so they will probably fix the glitch!


Just in case you missed it, be sure to check the Target ad from Sunday's paper and cut out the $10/$50 coupon. In case you threw it out it is also printable on the target website. It is only good until April 19th so make sure you use it this week before Saturday!

LeCreuset is having a sale at the outlet location. When you walk in, you scratch a card where you can get up to 35% off an item. I have been waiting for a sale to buy the forged frying pans. They are like the Calphalon but will never warp and have a lifetime guarantee. I am so tired of spending $40 - $60 for a frying pan only to have it scratch and warp in just a short amount of time. I bit the bullet and spent $150 on two frying pans, a 12" and a 9" and am excited to know I will get these replaced if anything should happen to them. Now is also a good time to pick up any cast iron pieces if you want to start a collection. I have one and eventually want to add the largest one to my collection. My only regret is that I wish I had these when I had all the kids living at home when I cooked up a storm!


We just got in the cutest bracelets at the store I work at, PEACE LOVE HOME. They are called Gingersnaps. You can choose rings or bracelets and snap in a disc which will change the look of the whole bracelet. They are fun and full of blitz and are the latest rage out there! Tired of spending $$$$ on Pandora, Troll Beads, etc.? Come check these out! They are so cute and really hot!


I spotted the new booklet GET A BUNDLE OF SAVINGS at the SR 16 store to the right of the customer service desk. Keep your eyes out for this book! Last year I stocked up on Kleenex and Huggies wipes for my daughter!

Tuesday, April 8, 2014


Beginning 4/13, eggs will be $.99 at Walgreens. If you printed the $.55/2 coupon for eggs from Facebook (look up incredible edible egg) you will get them for just $.75 a dozen. Take this opportunity to stock up on some eggs! I think I see some quiche in my dinner menu plans!

Friday, April 4, 2014


Just in cased you missed it, these are the hot deals this week at Publix. Right Guard Deodorant, Hawaiian Punch, Krave Cereal and milk, Friendship Cottege Cheese, Beneful dog food, Suave Body Lotion, Yoplait Go-Gurt, and Magnum Ice Cream Bars. Add more cereal to your list (Golden Grahams), Jello and Toufayan Wraps.


Well, darn it!!! That is all I have to say! I am sure you have heard that Winn Dixie is starting to take competitor coupons. That was the good news. The bad news is it is not the stores in this area. Gainsville, Tampa area and many central Florida locations are going to accept them. Once again, North Florida is out of the loop! I am just hoping that the NE Florida Winn Dixie stores will jump on the bandwagon and follow their footsteps. As much as I dislike WD, I would go in there more often if I could get some good deals!

Wednesday, April 2, 2014


Something happened to me today that I never wanted to see happen. I shopped at the Moultrie Publix because I had to visit someone in the shores...big mistake! I had six boxes of cereal in my cart and I went to use 6 target coupons. They told me the new rule was only one competitor coupon per order. They let me use two because it was BOGO but they had to take four boxes off my order. I would have thought they would have let me get my boxes and tell me next time they would only take one. I left that store and went right over to cobblestone and got my 4 boxes of cereal and 10 deodorant for a grand total of $.18 after using my competitor coupons. They didn't mention anything about the new rule so I am hoping that is moultrie's rule and the other stores don't follow suit. Let me know if this same thing happens to you!!


Look at the Winn Dixie ad that came in yesterday's mail. There is a $5 off $40 coupon that is good for 4 days only. Make sure you watch the date because it expires 4/5/14! I am going to stop by there and pick up some bleach for $.99, boneless chuck roast for Italian beef sandwiches and chicken leg quarters for $.89/lb.

If you are looking to order something from Target in the home department and spend over $50, I have a promo code for you to use. I just ordered two sets of Threshold draperies in two separate transactions to save $10 on each order. Use the promo code TGTJMEYB to save $10 on a $50 order! You have until April 5, 2014 to use this code.


If you still have access to a Target Coupon, the Post Honey Bunches of Oats Energy Blend reset. I was able to print 6 more coupons which means 6 more FREE boxes of cereal! Make sure you make it to Publix before the sale ends on Wednesday!

Friday, March 28, 2014


Don't forget about your free Honey Bunches of Oats Energy Blend Cereal this week at Publix. Also, remember your dog and get $.50 dog treats. I also noticed on the Sandra's Chicken Florentine, and Cordon Bleu there were $1 peelies on them at the Cobblestone store. If you didn't print the $1.50/1 coupon, you could still get them for $1.50 a box instead of $1 a box. I haven't tried these but I may have to make some room in my freezer! I also used my South Beach BOGO raincheck and Publix paid me to take 10 boxes out of the store!

Sunday, March 23, 2014


Don't forget about the laundry deals again this week at CVS. I will be going and getting some more Wisk and All to add to my stockpile. You will pay about $1.50 per bottle. Last week I bought 6 Purex for just over $6! I will use this for towels and save the good stuff for my laundry!


I have a very good friend who is moving to a smaller house and has two twin headboards to sell as well as one twin boxspring and mattress. Now I wouldn't buy a mattress used from just anyone! But if any of you have a child you need a mattress, this would be perfect. They are in excellent condition as they were a spare bed. Text me and let me know if you are interested and I will pass along the info. Don't wait to long!


In todays SS there is a coupon for Carrabba's. The coupon states it is valid until 5/3/14 but my experience has been that they accept coupons for 1 month past expiration! I sure wish Publix did that! The coupons are for $8 off a new menu entrée, free new appetizer or dessert with purchase of two dinners, and $5 off a lunch entrée. I am sticking it in my wallet to have handy in case we go there next weekend!

Thursday, March 20, 2014


I am always changing the zip code on to print coupons from other cities that match our sales. I never know at any given time what zip code is plugged in...and it does make a difference. I went to print the $1/1 Honey Bunches of Oats coupon that is supposed to come in handy next week. Nothing pulled up for me. I changed my zip code to 33172, IHP's Atlanta zip, and viola...there it was! Just a reminder to let you know to check various zips even when they don't tell you. I almost assumed it reached its print limit. I am so glad I changed it and now I have 6 coupons!

I had a BOGO raincheck for Palermos Pizza burning a hole in my coupon file. My husband wanted pizza to keep in the freezer but they did not have the kind I wanted when they were on sale. Fast forward three weeks later and now they are on sale 2 for $10. Using my raincheck with this sale and my $1/2 coupon means I get a pizza for $2 each! I'm making room in my freezer for a good selection of pizzas! Watch for sales like this after the BOGO sales if you have a raincheck to make them work for you!

I noticed a few more things to pick up at Winn Dixie this week. I will also be purchasing whole chickens for $.99 lb. and a bag of sugar for $1.69. Both of these are great deals!


Scotchbrite sponges will be BOGO in the new ad. There was a printable coupon listed of which only two of my three computers would let me print it. I still cannot figure out why my one computer gives me a hard time! But I noticed a $1/2 MQ in the 2/9 SS that was not listed in any of the coupon matchups! Yipee! I am getting 12 packages enough to stock me up for awhile!


Head over to Winn Dixie to get some free dog treats this ad! Beneful dog treats are BOGO and there is a BOGO coupon in the 2/23 SS. While you are there, pick up some zucchini or squash for only $.99 lb. Finish dishwasher detergent is also BOGO and I noticed there was a mail-in rebate coupon in the 3/16 SS. I would read the coupon more carefully but it looks to me like you can mail in your receipt and get a full refund!

If you still have the $1.50/2 Purex Laundry Detergent coupons that are no longer available to print, head to CVS and get some MORE cheap laundry detergent. Buy 6 and use three $1.50/2 coupons and pay under $1.50 bottle with their B1G2 sale!


Here's a deal for you that you may not have seen that requires NO COUPONS! Head over to CVS and buy the Eucerin Hand Lotion in the smallest size for $.99. Buy two of them and you will get back $5 ECB's! If you have any ECB's to use it will reduce your OOP expense. I was able to buy a $.99 size and a $2.99 size because they only had one little one. I used $4 in ECB's so all I had to pay was the tax of $.24 and I got back $5! They did not have anymore at the beach or 312 but maybe they will restock as the week goes by. Good Luck!!

Head over to and use zipcode 68130 to get a 20% off coupon for Harbor Freight. I also saw a 20% off coupon for Sherwin Williams paints and stains. I personally prefer Behr, but if this is your brand, take advantage of the coupon


Get your scissors ready! It's time to stock up on laundry detergent at CVS beginning 3/23/14. They will be on sale B1G2 and we should be able to pick them up for under $2 a bottle. Buy 6 @ approx. $7.99 and use the $2/2 coupon in the 2/9 RP or 3/2 RP. If you use the coupon out of the 2/9 RP, you will have to go that day because the coupon expires on the 23rd. Your total will be $15.98, take away $6 for coupons and you pay approx. $1.66 each. Keep in mind some stores may be higher in price and tax is not included in that total. You can also buy 3 Wisk at that same deal and use three $1.50/1 from the 3/9 RP. Remember to get a raincheck if they are out because they never expire!

Beginning the end of the month, the Lincolnville Farmers Market will be back in business! If you miss the Saturday market, head to Lincolnville on Sunday beginning at 12 noon. I am not sure how long this market will last but I am sure it will be throughout the summer and fall.

Tuesday, March 4, 2014


Allergy season is here. I was able to buy Claritin D for my husband for just under $15 for 20 tablets. Make sure you use the $4 PQ from the PAF and the $4/1 from this weeks past inserts.


It's time to stock up on All Laundry Detergent! I don't know about you but I am so used to paying $1.50 to $2.00 a bottle that if the time comes I have to pay more I don't know what I will do! Head to Winn Dixie this week where All is BOGO for $5.99. Use the $2.2 from 2/9 RP or 3/2 RP and pay $2 each. I am going to buy 10 and use a $5/$30 as well and pay $1.49 each! Sugar is also on sale for $1.99 and there is a $.75 printable bringing it down to $1.24. Perfect timing for me because I need sugar! Peanut butter is also BOGO so you may want to pick up if you need that item.

Monday, February 24, 2014


I got my Breakstone Greek Sour Cream today at Publix for just $.30 each. Make sure you get yours before the end of the month. Just use the BOGO coupon in the GAF and stack with the $1/1 coupon on You may have to change your zipcode to 77477 to view it. If they don't have any, get a raincheck and they will honor it when it comes back in stock along with the now expired Publix coupon.

Not all beans are created equal. I ran across an article in a magazine that I thought was pretty interesting. Although I stock up on beans when they are on sale, this article made me think about the brands I purchase. It listed the BEST canned beans for each kind. Here they are...BEST RED is Eden Organic Small Red Beans, BEST CANNELLINI is Cento Cannellini Beans (some competitors were chalky tasting), BEST BUTTER BEANS is Goya, BEST BLACK BEAN is Market Pantry Target Brand, BEST KIDNEY is Allens Dark Red Kidney Beans, BEST CHICKPEA is Market Pantry Garbanzo Beans, BEST PINTO is Westbrae Natural Organic Pinto Bean and last but not least BEST GREAT NORTHERN is Goya. There you have it! I was quite surprised at the Market Pantry brand making it to the top of the bean food chain! Next time I need beans and don't have a coupon, I will reach for one of these!

I don't know about you but I have the spring cleaning bug! Let's just say the trash men are not going to like me this week! I have been cleaning closets and organizing my stockpile under my sinks. I also hit the garage where my toilet paper and paper towel stockpile are pretty awesome! You would be proud if you saw my toilet paper stash all perfectly lined up to the ceiling, labels facing forward. Next I will focus on cleaning blinds, baseboards, etc. I plan on doing this deal for the Windex Touch-Up Cleaner. I haven't tried it yet so for this price it is my shot to try it. Buy 8 at $3.99 each and use four BOGO coupons in 1/12 SS and eight $1/1 PQ in PAF and a $5/$30. I will pay just $2.96 plus tax for 8 of them! You can also do the same thing with the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel coupon in the same insert (1/12 SS), stack with the PQ and $5/$30 and pay the same!

Go to the Pier 1 Imports page on Facebook and like them and get a 20% off coupon thru 2/17/14. It is good on all regular priced merchandise. If you have been eyeing something, now is the time to pick it up with the coupon.


If you happen to be at the CVS store at the beach, be on the lookout for the $1/1 blinkies for Dentyne Gum. They are right across from the cash area in front of the candy on the first isle. Dentyne is BOGO this week and these coupons will get you some cheap gum!

I stopped into Target today trying to kill time waiting for Rowe Family Eyecare to come back from lunch and I noticed ALL Huggies diapers are marked 15% off. If you missed the diaper deal last week at Publix and you still have your high-value coupons, use them at Target. Maybe these will be reduced lower. I'll try to remember to look if I go in there soon! Or if Pampers is your preferred brand, head to CVS and buy 3 packages on sale for $8.99. Print the $2 coupon from (zipcode 77079). Use three $2/1. Price at register will be $20/97 but you will get a $5 CVS gift card. That makes each pack $5.32 each!


You have to run to get this deal because the Publix ad expires today. If you were not lucky enough to print the $2 Angel Soft Coupon to get CHEAP toilet paper, then head over to and print the $1.50 coupon. Note that this is a manufacturer coupon so you can't stack with any others. You will pay $3.50 for a large package of toilet paper that usually costs $6.99. I, of course, will buy 6 and then use my $5/$30 and get myself FULLY STOCKED on toilet paper! Look for the bonus packages as well! It's like getting another 5 double rolls for free!

When I was doing my CVS run today, I stopped in at the location by Cobblestone. I was told by the cashier that they took their ECB's for two weeks past expiration (the beach takes one month past) and they also take manufacturers coupons for two weeks past expiration also! She did have to tell me that! Now I am going to have to scour deals to see what I can put together with expired coupons!


If you missed the Egyptian Cotton sheets at Tuesday Morning, now is your time to pick up some of my personal favorite sheets...BAMBOO SHEETS! They are at Tuesday Morning beginning today for $69 per set which includes pillowcases! The pillowcases alone sell for $19.99 to $24.99 a set. These won't last long. I wouldn't wait any longer than Monday to get yours because quantities are limited. I got my set!


If Fab is your choice for laundry detergent, then head to Winn Dixie for their 3-day sale and pay just $1.00 per bottle. They are on sale for $1.99 each and use the $1/2 coupon in the 1/5 SS. This isn't my preferred brand but maybe it would be good for things like towels that do not get very dirty. What do you think? Would you spend $1 on Fab detergent?

Friday, February 7, 2014


If you are in need of sheets, stop in Tuesday Morning and look for the endcap with sheets for $38.88. They only had one set left in queen but other stores may have them in stock. They are Peacock Alley Egyptian Cotton Sheets. Egyptian cotton are the best sheets you can buy! You don't need an obscene high thread count to get great feeling sheets. Like I said, they have one queen set left in white but check the other stores to see if they have the size you are looking for!

The answer to the above question is a big NO!!!! Recently I have had the need to look for a coupon in the coupon database. I knew I had a certain coupon in one of the recent inserts, but I couldn't remember which one. When I went to the IHP database it did not show up. I went to two other database sites and it did not show up there either. But it DID show up when I went to From now on that is going to be the only database I use. It seems to be more up-to-date and offers more coupon options. Just a FYI!!!


Starting Thursday 2/6 in the new Publix ad, there will be an In-Ad Deal for $2.00 off Huggies Diapers! This is not a coupon, so it will AUTO DEDUCT at the register. If you look at the sizes mentioned, it says $2.00 off Huggies Diapers or Pull Ups or Little Swimmers, 10 to 156 ct pkg, or GoodNites Underwear or Disposable Bed Mats, 9 to 35 ct pks, assorted varieties. The last time an auto deduct deal went live, it included BOTH the Jumbo packs and the Boxes. Based on the sizes in the description, it appears that this will be the case again. If so, I have some AWESOME deal ideas for you! I will be mailing these coupons to my daughter in South Florida so she can do the deal! BUY TWO Boxes of Huggies Diapers – $18.99 / $16.99 after auto deduct, USE ONE $5.00/$30.00 Winn Dixie coupon (enjoy the city books), USE TWO $3/1 Publix Coupons, USE TWO $3/1 Huggies MFG coupons from 1/19 SS insert, YOU PAY $16.98 total or $8.49 per BOX of diapers!!

I did something I normally don't do. I splurged on a piece of cookware. I usually buy Calphalon and that stuff isn't cheap either. This time I bought a Le Creuset 5.5 qt. pot for $162 and I love it!!! The bad thing now is that I am sold on them and looking to build my cookware stockpile! I can't believe how much it conducts the heat. The best part is they are guaranteed for life and if something should happen, they will replace it. They are also something you hand down to your kids. Now they can fight over my diamond and the Le Creuset pot! I also plan on replacing my frying pans. My Calphalon pans are warped and get scratched even though they are non-stick. I am replacing them with the Hard Anodized pans that are also guaranteed for life. The 12" will be $104. I asked the manager to call me when there is a sale! It will be the last time I will ever have to buy a frying pan. I am getting the 12" and the 9 1/2" and I should be good to go! Now I will be on the hunt for them at Marshall's as well. I already purchased an oval baking dish for a mere $24.99! Are you looking for nice cookware? Check them out!


Be on the lookout for $1/1 Popsicle blinkies. These should make for a great deal if we see a bogo soon. We have until the beginning of April so let's keep our fingers crossed!

Thursday, January 30, 2014


I think I may have mentioned this before, but go to and sign up to receive BOGO coupons at certain restaurants. Right now you can get a coupon for Smoothie King, Marble Slab, and Rita's Italian Ice.


If you are looking for a deal at P.F. Changs. then head to their website and signup to get a $10 off $40 purchase coupon. My daughter's boyfriend just gave us a $20 giftcard so I see some cheap good Chinese food in our future!

I had a raincheck for the Green Giant Sweet Potato Chips and they were cleaned off the shelf. I went up to customer service and they are ordering me 10 of them and calling me when they come in. This way, I won't clean off the shelf but I will still be able to get that great deal on these chips. I hope some of you that got a raincheck will do the same thing so you won't clear shelves and get a great deal at the same time!


I ran to WD today to get my pork butts for $1.19 lb. with my raincheck. I also got the Hillshire Farms Lil' Smokies to have for superbowl. They are BOGO and stack two $.55/1 coupons with it. Good deal for Lil' Smokies. If you buy the Breakstone Sour Cream, the $1 Greek Sour Cream will work for that also. They are BOGO at $2.69 so you will pay $.35 each! Also Cheerios are BOGO at $4.49. If you printed the BOGO cheerios coupon, you will pay $.25 per box because the coupon deducts $4.00 off. Not a bad deal. If you are willing to wait to see if Publix goes BOGO with Cheerios you would get them free. I was there anyway so I opted to pay $.25 each. I don't see much for me in the new ad, but I will look at it closer and let you know if I see any good deals!


I noticed today that Tuttorosso tomatoes are on sale for $1 each. This is for the large 28 oz. can. You can choose from crushed, diced, puree, sauce or whole tomatoes. There is a $1/2 blinkie right in front of them. These are my favorite tomatoes! They usually sell for $1.99 a can. With the sale in the GAF and the blinkie you pay only $.50 each! They will be on sale until February 7 so you still have time to grab a few!

Dillard's will be having their annual end-of-winter sale beginning Wednesday. If you are a card holder, you can shop one day early on Wednesday. If not, the sale will begin on Thursday and go through the weekend. Take this time to get an extra 30% off their already marked-down price!


I hope you noticed in this weeks insert a $2.50/2 Naturally Fresh coupon. If you still have the Game Day Publix Book, stack that with two $1/1 to get overage! Watch the expiration date on the dressing. Some of the bottles of the same variety expired much quicker than others! If you haven't already printed your BOGO coupon, go to and stack with the sale and get FREE dressing. Remember, this sale only goes until 1/29/14.


I found a blinkie for $2 off Flinstone Vitamins. When you stack this with the $5/2 PQ found at the Pharmacy counter, you pay $2.50 per bottle. Buy 4 bottles and $2 worth of other groceries, use 2 $5/2 PQ's and 4 blinkies and a $5/$30 and pay just $7 for four bottles. If anyone needs any blinkies, I have a few extra!

Wednesday, January 22, 2014


If you have a raincheck for the Belvita Bisquits from a few weeks ago, here is a deal to make it even sweeter. In the Game Day GAF, there is a PQ for buy 1 Belvita Bisquit and get any 3 Publix Yogurt FREE! I guess that means I will be getting 18 FREE yogurt! The best part is they will bring up my total for the gas card deal. Since I am not buying that much, that will really help. If you still have a raincheck for the Oscar Mayer Turkey, this is a good week to use it. Remember, the BOGO sale raincheck and the $1/2 MQ should get you cheap turkey...only $.15 each!

Boneless skinless chicken breasts are $1.59/lb. at Save-A-Lot this week until Tuesday, January 14th. I NEVER go into Save-A-Lot but I will go in and stock up on this deal! I think I also have a $5/$25 coupon that I can put towards it! Speaking of Save-A-Lot coupons, I was in line and a head cashier was training a woman at the register I was at. She said to her at the end "We take WD, Target and Save-A-Lot coupons! So for those of you who have any put them to use at Publix. I know I have been able to print mine from their FB page!


Here's another deal I stocked up on. There was a $5/2 Flinstones coupon in last weeks paper. Stack with the $5/2 Publix coupon booklet found at the pharmacy and pay $.25 per package of vitamins! Thanks again to Margie for giving me her vitamin coupons!


A BIG THANK YOU to my best coupon buddies Margie and Michelle for giving me the Juicy Juice coupons. I am able to buy 15 bottles of Juicy Juice and use 12 $2/3 MQ coupons from last weeks awesome inserts and a combination of $1/2 PQ or $1/2 TQ. Of course, throw the $5/$30 WD coupon in there and pay just $8 for 15 bottles of juice! Now that is how it is done! Even if you just have one coupon, you can get 3 bottles for $6, minus the $2 MQ and $1 TQ and pay $1 per bottle. Still not too shabby!


In this past weekends insert, there was a $5 off Tena Pads coupon. These are regularly priced at $5.19 at Publix. Pick some up if you need them or buy to bring your total up to $30! These are also a great donate item if you get them. The coupon doesn't expire until 2/5 so we still have plenty of time to use them. I would wait to see if there is another gas card deal between now and then to help boost your total!

Sunday, January 5, 2014


Just in case you didn't see it, use your $3/2 coupon from this weekends insert and pay only $2 per bottle for All detergent at CVS. This is the time to stock up!


I was at Marshall's today and they were doing the final markdown on all the items in the store with a red tag. Make sure you check it out to see if you could find any good deals. If you find a red tag, have them scan it because it should go lower!

Twice a year Victoria's Secret has their semi-annual sale. This is the time of year you want to check out the deals at the store and on their website. I believe you get better deals in the store but their website has some pretty good deals. I handed the ipad to my husband and he went to town! I can't wait to see what he ordered! In about a week or so the prices at the stores should drop again. If you want to take a chance on a specific item wait until the following week! Good luck!
