Wasn't sure where to post this, but our CVS has lots of Pantene Shampoos and conditioners, as well as some mousse on clearance 75% off, in their end cap facing the pharmacy. They are 1.24, and with the $1/1 MQ, only .24! The types they had were the navy blue cap and the pink cap ones

Toys, Toys, Toys

If you haven't been to the Frys Marketplace on Pinal/McCartney you have been missing out on the HUGE toy/game clearance going on! They have LOTS of tables HEAPING with toys marked 50% down. I am still hoping that they will go 75% -- but if I don't see that happen before too long I will start stocking up!

Think Christmas, Birthdays... donations :)

There are games and toys for kids 0 - 10... I didn't see much in the video game, etc area.

Let me know if you see them get marked down even further!

The Splurge

So I totally splurged today! I finally bit the bullet and bought the fancy schmancy double stroller that I have been dreaming of for 4 1/2 months...

Isn't it wonderful :) And there is a cool extra bar that fits on the front to let TWO carseats riding at the same time. And currently, that would be super useful! :)

So yes, I spent a lot of $$ but I did shop smart.

Here's what I did:

I looked all around and decided on the stroller I wanted. I checked craigslist and decided against purchasing used... b/c its a good investment afterall, why not just go for it?! Then I started shopping online and comparing stores.

Diapers.com $224.99
Amazon.com $220.54
BabiesRUs.com $279.99
and so on.

Then I looked for coupon codes to up my value and keep my OOP down and found a 15% off first purchase code for diapers.com that included free 1-2 day shipping! Oh and there was no tax.. odd but a happy surprise. So with a savings of nearly $34 I went with Diapers.com. I tried to stack this with other codes and couldn't but I am still happy with my savings.

Then of course I sold a few things on Craigslist to help out the difference. I am still OOP less than $100 for my brand new AMAZING stroller :) Now I just have to convince the hubby I can spend another $140 and get the matching carseat... LOL

 Want to cash in on some savings too? If you already have an account just make a new one with one of the many emails I am sure you have and use the code: THEB3035 to save 15% off your order too!

Amazon Diaper Deal

KC over at Desert Deals Diva and Kim at Arizona Savings BOTH posted about amazing Amazon Diaper deals...

Thought I would share my own. Definately not as great as theirs... but I didn't have my hands on quite as many codes. If only I had grabbed that stack of August Parents magazines at my Pediatrician's office I was tempted too.... sigh.

My order:

156 ct Huggies Diapers (size 3) $35.00
2 ct. Soothie Nipples - Stage 2 $4.29
Shipping $16.71
- Free Shipping $16.71
-$7 Promotion (August Code)
-$7 Promotion (September Code)
= $25.29 OOP!

That is an amazing deal to me! :)

Grab your mags and get your codes (on orange flyers that say "20% off diapers") and get on over to Diapers.com

The August codes expire 8/31/10 -- and if you want to stack the codes you'll need to do so before then!!

** UPDATE ** I went to the Dr. Office today and they still had 2 Parents mags for September -- they were fine with me swipping the 20% Cards out of them! Since they are both Sept. codes I couldn't use them both in one transaction. So I signed up for the "Subscribe & Save" 30% promo as well --- essentially saving 50% on diapers! After I get my first shipment I'll go in and cancel it. I paid $9.99 for 84 Huggies Newborn diapers shipped TWO DAY! HOORAY for diaper deals!

Mentos Gum

There are coupons online that you can get through www.coupons.com for Mentos Gum. It is a 55cents off 1 coupon. It's not advertised, but I was at Safeway yesterday and Menos Gum is BOGO free. The cost is $1.49 each. SO...it's a 50 cents moneymaker when you buy two.

25 FREE 4x6 prints at Walgreens!

Just wanted you all to know about this fabulous photo deal I found today...

it may be old news to everyone else, but I was quite happy to discover it!

Walgreens.com would not let me log into my old account for some reason even after I had requested a new password and tried using that... so I created a new account... and got 25 FREE 4x6 prints!

No special promo code needed. I uploaded some pictures ordered 25 prints and my total is $0.00 -- no tax! Plus, I'll pick them up in store so no shipping charges either!

I love great photo deals!

Why is car buying so pricey?

We just bought a new family car TODAY (well, tonight.... thank goodness for dealers who are open late!) -- and I wish wish wish there were coupons!

But I did save $$ buy researching ahead of time, knowing the blue book and fair market values and standing up for myself. I read a lot of articles over at http://www.edmunds.com/!

I was able to haggle the price down $1500 from their internet special they swore they wouldn't budge from. We got a good deal, and I am sure they made their money as well.

Anyone else have any car buying tips? Post your comments!

Did you hear?! CG is getting a Sam's Club!

Read the full story HERE.

I am really excited! Who knows when it'll actually get built and open -- I am thinking Spring/Summer 2011!

It'll be great to have one closer to home - they have great deals on produce and clothes. And of course I am a sucker for the big box, buy in bulk mentality. Coupons can definatley save $$ but sometimes a quick run to the store is easier!
