Kohl's Clearance and Coupon Codes

Tuesday, December 29, 2009 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
Crystal at MoneySavingMom alerted us to Kohl's Clearance and Coupon Codes for 20% off and free shipping.  What I discovered is you can use both codes for one order so you don't have to decide which is the best although that was rather easy if you ordered more than $20 and two items. ;)

So go to Kohl's  through ShopatHome  or Ebates, get 4% back,  and use promo codes: nocharge and extra20.

I found some nice Browns, cough gag sputter, (GO STEELERS!)sweatshirts by Reebok for my boys and nice Bermuda shorts for my daughter.  I even found matching swimsuit bottoms for the top I already own, now only need to lose 30-40lbs. Ugh!

This came directly from Cherry Picker:

$3.00 wyb two Bayer meters RR

=Get two $5.00 RR and one $3.00RR

 Here is another Walgreens deal from NWA Deals : Free Tea and Theraflu. Check out her Scenario HERE!

Then Mindi Cherry has shared the new Walgreens coupons inside the January Book HERE!  

The Revlon $3 Age Defying jumps out at me along with this week's BOGO Free Relvon sale.  Plus you can stack those $2 Revlon mqs with the Wags Qs.  This should make the foundation free.  This is my favorite drugstore foundation. It matches the bests, has the best finish and lasts the longest.

Update: Online Price is $12.99, not sure what it is In Store, but if $12.99 too then after coupons and sale it would cost you $3/2.  Not as exciting as free, but still a great deal if this is your brand.

I've read the Creme Gloss, $9.99, would be free though since there is also a Wags $3 q for it.

Rite Aid 12/19

Saturday, December 19, 2009 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
This past week, maybe it was Monday I received a call from a Rite-Aid manager telling me the sugar in stock. My brain started working overtime trying to figure out what to say throughout the brief conversation.  I did not order sugar and I no longer needed the sugar even though I still had a raincheck tucked neatly away in my binder.  What to say what to do.  

I politely asked if he special ordered those because the cashier informed me he would not when she requested my name and number.  He said, no he didn't, but saw I wanted to ten and wanted to let me know those were now available if I wanted them.  Part of me breathed a sigh of relief and the other part thought I should just go ahead and buy those since he made a special effort to call me, long distance at that. It might help build a nice relationship at that Rite-Aid since I was already not in good graces with one of the shift managers. Can you imagine? lol  So I started hunting down Domino coupons online and offline with a fury.  I found enough for 8; it would have to do.  

Tonight was that night I decided to purchase it along with a few SCR items and use my $5/$20 so it wouldn't cost much oop.  My plan didn't go so well   I even asked twice for help and can't believe she didn't volunteer a third time to help because one would have thought I was casing the joint the way I kept backtracking and exploring all the aisles.  

Mission one find the sugar.  On the way I found the flip remote, last option.  Okay. Next ended up in the shampoo aisle couldn't find the Prell.  Found my pastor from 25yrs ago, but not the Prell.  Had a nice short reunion with her then went back to looking for the Prell.  Asked about the Prell.  Shift Manager shows me the Pert then the empty space for the Prell. sigh  Mental note get raincheck.  

Okay onto the sugar, found the sugar, only 9 boxes, no problem I really didn't want 10 so I took 8. Woohoo matches with my 8 coupons.  

Look for pop up tape to use last week's raincheck.  Out of stock at this store too. BooHoo, but all is not lost.

BeneVia will replace the Prell and tape no problem and give me overage to boot.  Ugh! Can't find it, every supplement, drink, powder, injection you name it, but no BeneVia.  Find Shift Manager and she has no idea what it is; she doesn't find it either.  

Okay now I come to terms with buying the flip remote as the filler that I do not "need", but free after SCR. I try to console myself that it originally cost $23 even though no one in their right mind would buy it at $23.  

Now I just need the Chapstick to reach the $20 mark. Such an easy task; W-R-O-N-G!
The correct Chapstick was no where on the lipcare display. Everything but it was there. Another treasure hunt, yipee.  I, with eyes that express loss and exasperation passed the the Shift Manager that had already helped me twice yet she decided to ignore me. Why is it when you want help no help wants you and when you don't you're followed around being watched?  Finally find it with the cough drops!  I guess that makes sense; coughing, must have chapped lips too. They should have put tissues in that aisle as well if you ask me.

Check out without a hitch. Still need a raincheck, but look over my shoulder and decide to put my purchases in the vehicle first since a few people were behind me.  I do so only to come back in to find the same three customers still waiting on line with no cashier at the counter.  So I decide to "shop" for clearance, passed the same SM as before with no acknowledgement of my presence from her. lol  

I go back up and wait for my turn, find two more customers behind me with one purchase each so I let them go ahead, then my turn and the cashier goes to the shelf for number to fulfill my raincheck, there is yet another person behind me with one item. I decide to it's my turn. LOL  I've never seen this store so busy. I guess I know now not to shop there on a Saturday evening.

Here is what I purchased and spent:
8 Domino 2lb Sugars $7.92 ($2.10q)
1 Flip Remote $9.99
1 Fresh Effects Chapstick $2.99
Total: $22
- $ 5/20
OOP $15 (!)
SCRs $10+$3 Cost $2

Christmas at

Thursday, December 17, 2009 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
Who would have thought to find a toy for Christmas at and at a great deal at that. Not me! That's just what happened though and I'm so excited to share! LOL  

I was slightly stressed about on what should I spend another $10  to get the free shipping. If I just purchased the Marshmallow Shooter I'd have to spend another $5-$6 on shipping.  I don't think so, but what oh what to buy, that was the big question.   

Also looming was getting it ordered tonight and at a decent hour. My husband requested I do so even though I had 2 days left according to their shipping calendar.  Due to being a world renowned procrastinator heaped with a side of indecisiveness, my old self would have waited and would not have been submissive to his wish. Gasp! 20 yrs later and I think I'm getting the hang of it even if it seems like a small step. lol  

Enough with our relationship and my attempt to heed that Biblical principle, onto the deal! Which, by the way, I like to think God rewarded me rather quickly with this idea for the "filler" and my order was placed by 9pm. 

Marshmallow Shooter   $14.99= One very happy daughter
Olay Quench 20oz        $11.99
Shipping                       FREE
Total                          $26.98 OOP
Olay Rebate              - $11.99
ShopAtHome 8%        -$ 2.16
Drugstore $               -$ 1.35
New Total                   $11.48 ! = One Very Happy Me

Hip2Save is where I first saw this mentioned and I had to pass it along too! I think this is just a great thrifty gift for those you know enjoy pop or soda or "coke" for my southern friends. ;)  I know it would be a hit with my extended family.

I feel so compelled to share this thread from Hot Coupon World.  It started out as "A Magical $20 Bill" and then evolved into so many stories of God's provisions.  It, He, has just blessed me beyond measure through this and I know it will bless you too.  So while this post is not about saving money it is about saving, the most important kind of saving.  God's Saving Grace.  May you too experience His Love not only during Christmas, but throughout the year.

Snowman Cake

Just thought I'd share the cake my daughter made.  She used the can buttercream icing which is a challenge to pipe, but I think it turned out quite cute. The snowman she used her marshmallow fondant recipe .  She wasn't thrilled with the finished project, but it was just for us and it was very good.

I'm so glad I went tonight. I was going to skip it because it's cold and I'm tired, but I knew there wouldn't be another good opportunity to increase my GOS check within the next two weeks so I plowed through and I'm glad I did.  I have now "spent" enough for the $20 GOS plus I have a nice rebate check for the month too without spending much out of pocket.  Using a giftcard helped, but really it's being refunded through the rebates so I might have spent $1 oop in the end.  Therefore a profit of $19 because of the GOS!

Giant Eagle Quick and Spendy

Saturday, December 12, 2009 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »

My main purpose for going out of town was Rite Aid, but I did want some fresh fruit for the kids, we were out of kitchen bags $5.50, and hubby wanted some lunch meat$2.50. Not a lot of coupons and an eggnog treat $3.79(thinking of Jeff). Lotion $1.50 and croutons $1.66 were my freebies after coupons. Bananas $.39/1b, Broccoli $1.25, Grapefruit $1.59 another request by Jeff, Bacon 2/$5, Sausage $3.29-$.50q (!), Ground Chuck 3lbs $1.99/lb,bread $1.99-$1.10q and Organic Apples 3lbs $4.99

Total Before Coupons:$46
Oop: $30 
Savings: 35%

Earlier today Jeff wanted some OJ, kids have colds, and buns.  Total a little over $4.  I think I'm starting to see the pattern with Jeff. lol It's okay though when it's your hard working unselfish husband.

If you add in the pop throughout the week and quick supper that is probably another $10.  So this past week total $105. Seems to be a little higher than I want, but at the same time I won't be spending much this coming week and tonight's trip should carry us through this coming week too.  Also if we wanted to get technical the garbage bags come out of the household item budget. Wasn't thinking or would have purchased at Rite Aid with the "overage" instead of the Northern. lol

Coupon Printing Trick for Rite Aid PDF $5/$25

Friday, December 11, 2009 Posted In , Edit This 0 Comments »

I hate to waste ink and paper, but it often happens when printing Rite Aid's PDF.  I don't have any solutions on how to save paper since it prints in the center of the page, but a little tip for how to save some ink, a lot of ink since the background is shaded and there are a lot of extra words too.  

Increase the viewing size to 200% (this will not increase the printable size)

You should end up with the coupon, about an inch shading on both sides and a few letters to the right of the coupon.

Woman Within Tote $2.99!

Thursday, December 10, 2009 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments » credit:Woman WithIn

Hip2Save shared this deal with her readers and I decided to splurge on it. lol  It might make a nice overnighter to go along with my Marriott gift card. Truthfully though my first thought was I wonder if it will hold my coupon binder and out the measuring tape came.  Everso slightly lacking in depth for it by about 1/2 inch, but it still may work and compared to the $30 pricetag on the purse I like at Target, I bought the $2.99 from Woman Within.   Okay this part is even better, but dumb bunny me didn't think of it until after I placed my order.  Grrrrr   

Go through ShopAtHome!  Please sign up under my name if you're not signed up already.  All you have to do is click the SAH underlined in this post or the link down on the right column on my blog.  You'll not only earn $5 for doing so, but get 3% cash back.  I know 3% is not much on $2.99, but if you buy for gifts or find something else you like every little bit adds up and the $5 is a nice bonus.   

Also use the free shipping code: WW32600
Once you get to WomanWithIn type in tote or purse and it should pop right up for you. Oh please be careful not to click confirmation for the $10 OYNO unless you want to be enrolled in a monthly club that cost $12 a month.  Even after my order was submitted it popped up and looked like I still needed to confirm my order but I didn't.

Even get those blah feelings about a grocery ad?  Me too.  This week it hit me especially after that crazy trip on Tuesday.  As you can see I am not on the ball posting the ad and scenarios.  I'm am going to just have to pick myself up by the bootstraps in the future and just post.  I often forget what a fabulous deal for me may not be for you and vice versa. I still may try to post a few scenarios, but I really want to get to the great mineral make up sales and a traditional sale option too.  Until then Cherry Picker does a wonderful job, her format is different which you may like better or not, lol, and then there is Saving in Akron too.  I like how Saving in Akron divides her deals up into the store's departments.   Thanks to those two ladies which were inspiration to me too along with the Hot Coupon World Eaglets.

Meijer Coffee and Sugar Deal!

I know I have at least one reader that shops Meijer so I wanted to make sure she knew about this deal I read by Megan.   You don't even need coupons, but if you have some the deal is even better!  The details are on her blog, but a little peek ahead of time is the coffee works out to as little as $.79/10-12oz can without coupons and $.29 with coupons. Plus you can roll the catalina!  Now that's what I call a stockpile price and would be great for a gift basket too.  I would totally buy that at $.29/can just to perk and smell since I don't drink it. LOL

I Won I Won I Won!

Wednesday, December 09, 2009 Edit This 0 Comments »
I won a giftcard from ShopAtHome sponsored by "Cents"able Momma!  I am not one of those people that win all that often so I'm shocked and so very excited. I'm also nervous as I wait for SAH to ship it to me. lol  

I hope you are signing up for a chance to win a SAH giftcard at those blogs I posted and win too!  

You can sign up for ShopAtHome regardless. It works similar to Ebates which I've used in the past and earned over $20 from past purchases just by using their link to get to the merchants from whom I want to purchase. You even earn 2% back from ebay! (coupons) ;)  If you sign up with SAH you can earn $5 when you make your first purchase through them and each friend that signs up using your special code earns you another $5.  

Here's my link: ShopAtHome Banner

Lastly, I want to Thank God.  I feel He is the One that ultimately blessed me with winning this giftcard.  Which now brings to mind what a fellow couponer shared this past week about "God's presence is the best present."  She is totally right and in time of hurt and sorrow His presents aren't as comforting as His Presence, but I am so grateful happy to receive this present.  Thank You Lord in the big and small.

Giant Eagle Shopping Trip

Tuesday, December 08, 2009 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
Wow! What a afternoon and evening. I think I was in GE for a total of three hours! Some of that time was spent on waiting and letting others go ahead since I had a huge order and they wanted to do it at customer service. The store was crazy busy as many were worried about the weather to come.  I just have to say I love my store. I had the best customer service people today.  One has been a favorite from the first time I met her, Jennifer.  She is always bubbly.  Okay onto my trip.  I did a total of 9 transactions at CS and one at the regular checkout.  I'm going to lump all my spending and savings into one total then I'll probably post a sampling picture as there is just way too much to organize. lol  

Total Value $339
Total Spent $60
Savings $279 or 82%! 

80 Pouches Betty Crocker Potatoes
20 5lb Bags Domino Sugar
25 Cans of Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup 
20 12oz Bag Nestle Morsels
  8 Cans of BC Frosting 
  5 4pk AAA Duracell
  4 Kleenex Cubes 
  2 BC Cookie Sheets

  2 GE Frozen Pizza
  2 Organic Milk (1/2gal)
  2 Muir Glen Tomato Paste
  2 Mentos Gum
  1 Bunch Bananas

  1 Annie's Organic Mac n Cheese
  1 Kraft American Cheese Slices 16
  1 Irish Creme International Delight
  1 3lb Organic Onions
  1 GE Grape Jam
  1 3lbs Chicken Breasts

Also stopped in at Aldi's for some chicken nuggets. Quick and easy lunch and theirs is the best.  I came out with a few more items. Spent about $14

2 Peppers (Red and Yellow)
2 Loaves Wheat Bread
1 2lbs Chicken Nuggets
1 Nacho Chips
1 Cheese Curls ( I should not shop when hungry!)

The Conservatorie Mineral Foundation

Monday, December 07, 2009 Posted In Edit This 1 Comment »
I decided to take a chance on The Conservatorie's Foundation Base and Foundation Color Blend.  I bought an ounce of the Premium Base, 1 tsp Premium Plus Base  and 1 tsp Warm Color Blend.   I also bought some silicone gel for $1.50.  So with the sale I spent under $15 including s&h for 30g of foundation. This is a great deal if you don't mind mixing your own custom shade.  It comes out to $.50/g which is about a third of the cost of pre-made foundations from companies that I've previously mentioned.  Bare Escentuals Minerals,you get about 9g for $25 so you'd pay $75 to get what I did for $15.  

I tried the Premium Plus first. I used 1 tsp of it to 1/32 t (little tiny white scoop)of color blend.  I am quite fair for reference. If you are average skintone you may need a scoop and a half.  It's simple to adjust if you use the little spoon for both the base and the color and keep notes.  The Premium Plus has a nice coverage and not heavy at all. The Warm Blend is quite warm so if you are a beige you might need to mix the Cool and Warm or try the Cocoa Blend.  You'll want around a 10g or 20 g jar to put your tsp or two of foundation.

The Silicone Gel is to give one's skin a smooth appearance. I've tried it in the past and didn't notice a difference so I tried it again and nope no difference for me, but others love it.

The one downside to ordering from The Conservatorie is their customer service. They lack greatly in answering any questions you send via email. Very disappointing if you're in a hurry to order and not sure on the colors. I'm so used to the owners of pre-made minerals answering quickly and cheerfully.

This concludes Mineral Monday. 

*You can get 10 small scoops at Coastal Scents for $1.40 so if you plan to order a lot of mica samples, oxides or other ingredients be sure to order from CS. Wonderful prices and fantastic customer service.  They are only lacking in the price of premade bases and I don't think they have color blends. They do offer a free formulator if you wish to make your own.

$2 Peet's Coffee IP

Monday, December 07, 2009 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
I'm not a coffee drinker. I try it every couple of months or so and usually drink about half before saying bleck. lol  My husband now drinks it once in awhile and it's nice to have on hand to offer to others when they visit so I'm going to try Peet's since I found this $2 IP and "Pittsburgh24" mentioned it was on sale at GE this week for $6.99.  So for $4.99 I think that's an okay deal for a pound of "good" coffee. It's regular price is $9.99 which seems comparable to Millstone at Wal-Mart.  I hope you can find a great deal on Peet's and I hope it tastes great, well great for coffee that is!  ;)

Monday, December 07, 2009 Edit This 0 Comments »
Ugh! I totally messed up my blog and totally by accident as I thought I was reviewing other blogger templates, but instead I changed it by mistake. Everything was still there since it got changed to a blogger template, until I tried switching back which was an independent template. I now have to add all my buttons, blogs I follow and then hope for the best. Now might be the time to start from scratch and just keep this one for reference of past trips. Not sure what I'll get posted for you today.
