Walgreens/Vons 5/31

**Update I forgot to tell you that when you by the U by Kotex, you will get a competitor coupon. If you buy the regular liners, you will get a free up to $5 Always coupon, if you buy the tampons, you will get a $1.50 off playtex coupon. I'm not sure which coupons come with the other products.

Okay, here's a quick shot of what I got, but there's a few more of the same. I'll just give you the run down of the deals because I was having major math issues today--luckily the cashiers were very kind and patient!

Ecotrin $2 get a $2 RR
$2 IP here
$2 from 5/16 RP or
$2 from Vons(Safeway) May coupon book, you can find these in little plastic holders by the toiletries, they are full of manufacturer coupons.

U by Kotex $3.49 get a $2.50 RR
$1/1 IP here (If you've already printed, it has reset!!!) If you got samples, there are coupons in those, as well.

Nuetrogena face soap $2.69 (prices vary by store, one of my stores was $3.19, the other $2.69)
$1.50/1 Same Vons coupon book (grab these before the store takes them down)
Buy 3 get a $10 RR (huge Monemaker) Good deal even if you don't have the coupons.

The foil was my filler of choice today, better than candy because I always need foil. Another good filler is the Royal Gelatin.

**Update not a super deal on the charcoal, it would have been if I had taken the $1 off coupon from the Albertsons ad. There was a super deal at Lowes, but I was too late on that one. Oh well, there will be more charcoal deals for 4th of July!

I'm going to run back later and get some Kingsford charcoal because they are on sale yesterday and today for $3.99. Good time to use those buy Kingsford get free Glad coupons here. The same coupons were also in an insert, but I can't find which one right now, I think it was 5/16 SS.

The Neutrogena deal is a month long deal and the soap will go on sale later in the month, however, I'm not sure that they realized that this would be such a moneymaker, so they may pull the soap from the deal. This was actually tagged in one of my stores.

Here was the best deal of the day because these were totally FREE!!! I finally remember to ask at the Bakery if they had any extra buckets and they were more than happy to give me what they had. I also checked at Smith's but they had just thrown them out--ugh! These are food grade buckets. How do I know well in this case, it was obvious because they still had the tags on them and they haven't been cleaned--not complaining, but you can also tell if the little recycle number in the triangle is a 2--just learned that yesterday. One of these is missing a lid, but seriously there are so many uses for free buckets. I plan to use these for some pinto beans that I'm going to buy at Sams Club just remeber to put some oxygen absorbers in the buckets. Another good use would be to store all of those freebies from Walgreens expecially things like razors that can go in the garage!

LATE Wags post

Sorry for no Walgreens post this week. I am going to spend my expiring RR tonight. Here's what I'm buying:

Crest Total Toothpaste $2.99
$ .75/1 IP here
or $1/1 Coupon in the Diabetes and You magazine, You can find it by the pharmacy. The coupon is in the summer issue, I finally found these today at the 5th Walgreens store I visited. It's brown w/a picture of a quesadilla on the front.
get a $2 RR

Goody headbands and barretts $2.99 get a $3 RR

Complete Contact Solution $7.99 get an $8 RR
$2/1 RP 5/16 or
$2/1 coupon in the May Savings book found at Vons(Safeway) it is a manu. coupon and you can use it at Wags.
$1 peelie found in store on the product

If I find anything else last, last minute tonight I'll post when I get home.

Yummy Granola Bars

FINALLY! I have finally found the granola bar recipe that everyone LOVES, and it's super simple. This is about recipe #6 and we've liked all of them, they just haven't been exactly right for us. You can find our favorite recipe here The great thing about granola bars is that you can adjust to your taste, the key is to keep the ratio of wet to dry ingredients the same as the original recipe. I used Rice Krispies in place of the nuts and seeds for my kids and actually added in some extra oats. The possibilities are endless, you can add nuts, raisins, craisins, seeds, peanut butter, really almost anything you can think of. These were gone in a day and a half!

Vons Fruit Strips and new Coupon Book

These little 100% fruit snacks are on sale at Vons(Safeway) use the B1G1 coupons here (use zipcode 94553) and they are between $ .24 cents and $1. I think my kids actually liked the $.24 cent snacks the best. There is also a bag called "fruit bits," there's a $1.50 off coupon on those and they should be on sale for $2.50. The two Vons I went to did not carry the fruit bits. You can print 2 of each coupon per computer.

**Mom, go and buy these and you can give them to the kids when they come to visit!

Also, look for these coupon books at Vons(Safeway, Genuardi's, Tom Thumb, Dominicks, Carrs, Pavilions, Randalls) There are a couple of store coupons and the rest are manufacturer coupons which means you can use them any where. I found them by the milk and in the freezer section. Grab a couple, but don't be greedy!

$1 off Las Palmas Coupon

$1 off Las Palmas Enchilada Sauce coupon.

Thanks A Thrifty Mom!

Best Foods/Hellmans Mayo Coupon

**If you need mayo, like I do, you can stack this coupon with the Vons(Safeway) in ad coupon for $1.99 and get a jar of $1.26. Not a super deal, but not bad.
Hopefully this $ .75/1 Best Foods Mayo coupon will come in handy this week for some Memorial Day sales.

CVS 5/24

A couple of good deals at CVS this week. The canned clams are on sale for $ .88 which is a great price. In fact I was going to buy some the other day and I couldn't find any for under $2/can. If your store is out, remember to get a raincheck, they never expire! I also bought the Gillette bodywash which is buy 1 for $4 get a $4 ECB. I bought 2 (which is the limit), used $4/2 coupon from the 5/2 P&G, OOP was $4 + tax and I got $8 in ECB. The great thing about CVS is you can buy the limit in one transaction and get all the ECB's, the bad thing about CVS is the limit is usually 1. You also don't need fillers to use your ECB's like you do at Walgreens.

Cheap Ziploc containers at Safeway Affiliates

Okay, I've been reading about this deal on Ziploc Containers for the past few days but I wanted to do it before I posted about it. So, here's the deal at Vons (Safeway affiliates which are Vons, Pavilions, Tom Thumb, Randalls and Genuardis)

4 Ziploc Containers $1.99ea. (You must buy 4 to get the $1.99 price)
Use @ $1.50/2 SS 5/16 (Some people have also found displays with $1/1 coupons in store)
OOP $4.96
get (2) $2 OYNO cats

What a great deal!!! It appears that all sizes that are marked for the buy 4 at $1.99 work for the deal. In my store all the packages with 2, 3 and 4 containers were marked the only ones that were not marked were the packages with more than 4 containers. Also, you may find more $1.50/2 coupons inside the containers--YAY!!!

I'm not positive of the end date, but I believe it's not until June 18!!

2 Photo books $4.99 shipped

Two mini(24 page) photo books from See Here for only $4.99 shipped. After you create your 2 photo books, go to checkout and enter code minibook-2 They will be b1g1 free $4.99 and free shipping. These would be great Father's Day gifts. You only have until May 26th to get this offer.

Free Heinz Ketchup at Walmart IF you have Albertsons

If you have Albertsons, you can get free Heinz ketchup at Walmart this week. Remember I told you about the Heinz Ketchup being $1 at Walmart? Well, in the Albertsons ad this week there is a manufacturer's coupon for $1 off Heinz Ketchup, so FREE ketchup at Walmart. The coupon does have an Albertsons logo on it, but it is NOT a store coupon. On the top of the coupon it says manufacturer's coupon AND there is a remit to address on the coupon that addresses "Retailers" not just Albertsons. A store coupon will not have remit to information. Also, most Walmarts take competitors coupons so you shouldn't have any problem using the coupon. I used mine, they scanned fine and the cashier didn't even make a comment about it!

Walmart Deals

If you're looking for some good Walmart coupon match-ups Abundant Food Savings has a great list.

Target trip 5/19

I wanted to show you what I found on my quick trip to Target. I already told you about all of these deals, I just wanted to confirm that I did find all of these items for the prices I listed. I think every coupon I used beeped "item not found", but my awesome cashier just pushed them all through. The flip flops were marked $4.99 on clearance, but I price checked them and they were only $2.48, so free plus overage (that's why that one beeped!)

I checked on the Cottonelle TP and of course, they do not sell the 4pk at my store---ahh now we see why they put out such a high value coupon! They may have them at other Target stores, the one I shopped today is a smaller store. Let me know if you find the 4pks at your Target.

There are some really good Target Kraft coupons. If you want to see some match-ups Krazy Coupon Lady has a huge list.

Great footwear coupon at

Hurry over to the Target Website, click on "coupons" at the bottom of the page, and then click on clothing and you'll see a coupon for $3 off Merona footwear. When I was at Target a few days ago they had some Merona flip flops on sale for around $4. Even at full price $3 off flip flops could make for some cheap shoes for summer. I'll let you know what I find tomorrow. I would definitely print this now because it may not last long!

$2 off Jergens Natural Glow Moistrizer

Just in time for summer $2 off Jergens Natural Glow Mosturizer. If you're white like me, this is a must to avoid blinding people during the summer months! The Natural Glow is B1G1 50% off next week at Walgreens.

Thanks Wild for Wags!

Do you have one of these in your 72 hour kit? If you don't you need one. This is a water filtration water bottle and you will not beat the price at LDS distribution [] There are two options, be sure to buy the one with the extra filter.

Heinz Ketchup $1 at Walmart

40oz. Heinz Ketchup is $1/bottle right now at Walmart. This is a really good price--in fact I don't think I've ever paid less than that for a bottle this size or less than $.50 for the smaller bottles. I found it at my Walmart in the seasonal section. Great time to stock up on Ketchup. I'm sure the grocery stores will all have BBQ foods on sale in the next couple of weeks for Memorial day, but I don't think you'll get a lower price on ketchup.

Free Reward Today only

Today only you can get a free reward from Tropicana Juicy Rewards. Just sign into your account, type in your zip code to search rewards and then view offers when your viewing an offer click get free reward and that reward will be free.

New Deodrant Freebies from Walmart

3 New freebies from Walmart

Razor/TP deals this week

A couple of quick notes about this weeks deals. If you got the Schick Hydro Razor coupons you can get them at Walgreens for $7.99-$5 coupon = OOP $2.99 get a $5 RR, but the better deal is at Target where you buy 2 of the 3 blade for $6.99 ea -(2) $5 coupons -(2) $1 Target coupons here = OOP $1.98 get a $5 Target gift card. So, the deal is actually better at Target.

Also at Walgreens if you need to burn RR, I always try to buy thing I need that are on sale or that I have coupons for. This week the Cottonelle 12 Rolls are $4.99 use the $1 coupon in the April All You magazine or $.50 coupon here and the $1 IVC coupon from the Walgreens May coupon book = $2.99-$3.49. (Thanks Wild for Wags)
