Get on EBAY NOW!

I just went on Ebay and bought 40 $1/2 Bar-S Coupons for $3.98 because at FRY's this week Hot Dogs are on sale for .58 cents BUT I just called the store to warn them that I will be coming to get 80 packages and they told me that there is a limit of 4! Good thing I have 4 adults in this house, we are each going to have to buy 4 packages 5 times! Right?

ALSO at FRY's on sale is "Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce" for .88 cents.
I got 20 $1/1 Coupons on ebay for $4.53........I hope it's a money maker!!

Is there a Van Camps pork and beans coupon out there?

Nestle 24 Pack Water DEAL

Fry's is running a OYNO deal for Nestle 24 Pack Water. I cannot remember when the end date is... so if you know, please post it in the comments. I picked up four cases yesterday :)

On sale for 3 for $10

Plus you can use any MQ's that you have (like the very common $1/2)

OYNO deal:
Buy 2 get $2 OYNO coupon
Buy 3 get $3 OYNO coupon
Buy 4+ get $5 OYNO coupon

Assuming you buy 4 in one transaction, use 2 $1/2 MQ's your OOP would be about 11.34 plus tax. And you'll receive a $5 OYNO! So really, 6.34 or $1.58 each (plus tax of course)

Clearance Makeup at CVS

I was at CVS today because I had heard about a great diaper deal this week, but I must've seen it from a different store or something, because there were no deals there and I was not going to waste my $3 Huggies coupon yet (which by the way, you can print here if they are still left.) But, I just happened to wander over to the makeup section and I saw several 75% off stickers on many items.

The best deals that I found were Revlon:

Revlon Creme Gloss:

Reg. price - $10, Clearance price - $2.49 (75% off) + $2/off Revlon MFQ

Final price - $.49

Revlon ColorStay Active Makeup with SPF25:

Reg. price - $12.99, Clearance price - $3.25 (75% off) + $2/off Revlonn MFQ

Final price - $1.25

Of course, clearance items vary by store, but you should be able to find some good makeup deals at any CVS right now.

Living Large on Less

Janae over at Life Under Construction has a fantastic series going on: Living Large on Less. Amen, sister! Today she posted a FANTASTIC how to on organizing your coupons. Check it out here. And it ain't your typical binder method ladies! I love her breakout do what works for you attitude :) With two little ones in the house and all my time (and sanity) quickly used up I may even venture into not clipping every little coupon into my binder!

Thank you so much for your tips Janae!!

Check out her blog HERE.

CG Safeway... not my favorite store

So I won't even spend the time to into everything that unfolded Saturday. But I will say that this CG store is NOT couponer friendly. If you have MQs from the Sunday Paper they love you. However, if you are using IPQs or any other printable type coupon they are total haters. Apparently they've had a problem with hundreds of $$ in "bogus" coupons... so now they are skeptical of any IPQs. They shut me down on the Real CA cheese coupons b/c they told me they thought they were fraud. (Don't get me started! GRR) They also didn't like my Wacky Mac Coupons... because I had 5. FIVE! Yeah, the Asst. Manager took one and said she was going to go "verify" it right away. Really?!

I don't believe that people who use coupons should be treated as less than those not using coupons. I was made to feel dishonest and a thief. After calling the Store Manager to discuss this problem I was given the same feedback. He referred to my "clipless" (his words for printable coupons) as a real problem and that he wanted to get information from Corporate on exactly what they have to take. He didn't mind that I wouldn't be shopping his store. When I called attention to how I felt treated he only talked over me and insisted that they do not treat couponers differently.

I know everyone's experience is different. But I am not happy with my Safeway store here in Casa Grande. I wish I lived closer to some of the couponer friendly ones in the Mesa area. I know you attract more bees with honey than vinegar... but how do you give compliments and friendliness to a store that makes you feel this way? Just my thoughts...

New Coupons: $3/1 Huggies and FREE Pasta

Head on over to today to get your $3/1 Huggies Coupons! I L-O-V-E that these high value coupons seem to be sticking around. I love Huggies diapers, but at an affordable price (with coupon) I have reason to love them even more!

While you are over at make sure to print off the $1.50/1 Huggies Little Swimmer Coupons and .50/1 Wacky Mac Pasta Coupons. Wacky Mac is only $1 at Safeway this week -- so paired with this coupon it'll be FREE!!! This will add a little variety to the mountain of Smart Taste pasta I have stockpiled in my pantry :)

And as a side note/confession: I spent HOURS yesterday organizing my coupons. I hadn't cleaned out my old ones in a month, yikes! I also had clipped and organized some a few weeks ago (yes, WEEKS) and left them to sit on my table. They are finally happy and home in my coupon binder. I also sorted and tore apart the pages from the past two maybe three weeks ago paper. I still need to clip and put them in my binder TODAY so I can FINALLY go shopping again (without paying a fortune).

Babies R Us Coupons

I am making a run to Babies R Us today and thought I would pass on these printable coupons I found online. I was sad not to see the 20% off one baby item coupon. I had one, but it expired yesterday... of course!

Happy Shopping for little one!

All Oxi-Active $1/1 IPQ

Go here and enter your information to download this great coupon! I've never tried this detergent before but I have LOVED the All Free & Clear to use for my kiddos. And Oxi-Active sounds like it'll help get stains out... which my kids are great at putting in clothes!

Hopefully they'll be some great promos/sales to pair up with this one soon! Let us know if you see any GREAT deals!

Food Storage Deals

The month of May is a HOT one over at Emergency Essentials!

My favorite deal is a group one: #10 can of Apple Pieces is only $10! These would make a great snack or trail mix! I already can my own apple sauce and apple pie filling (yum!) but just to have these around as a snack would be great! Want to get in on this deal? Organize a group or buy 12+ cans yourself (that's a whole lot of apple pieces!)

If you know of any other great deals on food storage items from other places please let us know!!

** Reminder have you added their button to earn your $10 gift card!? **

Link to Target Coupons

Apparently, I posted the wrong link to coupons in my post below (I am not very good at this coupon blogging thing!) Anyway, if you want to print the Vaseline lotion coupon, go here and it should work :) If not, just go to and click on coupons at the bottom.

Vaseline Sheer Infusion Lotion for $.04 at Target

OK, usually I am the last to know about any really good deals, so I am happy to share this one since I haven't seen it anywhere else yet!

This week, Target has their Vaseline Sheer Infusion lotion on sale for $4.79.

Use $3.75/1 MQ plus $1.00/1 Vaseline lotion Target printable coupon available here.

Total price: $.04. Plus, certain bottles came with a free travel size lotion too, so not a bad deal if you ask me!

My Morning

Well I started out this morning with high hopes of finding the elusive $1.50/2 and .55/1 Mission and Kraft Tear Pad Coupons.... to no such luck! So, if you haven't already looked in CG... don't bother. What's funny... I remember seeing the $1.50/2 Mission one a month or so ago. Why I didn't grab some is beyond me... maybe I was too busy chasing kids?

What made my morning better?

Getting paid 21 cents to take some diapers from CVS :) I hate it when people post deals that can't really be duplicated... but this is the closest I've come to getting paid so I've got to share! I had a $5 ECB reward that needed to get used before Monday. So I went on over to CVS and grabbed an ad and scanned for a good deal. I saw the Pampers ECB deal and decided I would go for it.

Pampers on sale $8.49
- $5 ECB (earned from buying Huggies a few weeks ago)
- $3/1 Pampers MQ from Mailer (Thanks Mom!!)
= .79 (with tax) TOTAL
Earned $1 ECB ---- I made .21 cents! YAY!

Then I headed over to Target to cash in on some freebies. Here's what I got for FREE:

3 Dove Ultimate Deodorants (trial size)
7 Tide 2x Ultra Single Load Packs (in trial size section)
3 Johnson's Bath Buddies Bars
3 St. Ives Apricot Scrub .50 overage each!

At my Target they also had some Gillette Body wash and Clinical Strength Sport deodorants clearanced for $1.52. Already a good deal, but pair these prices with a MQ for an even sweeter buy!

OH AND A HEADS UP! Lindsay went to our Target in CG to get the baseball card holders... they moved them to the toy section!
