Rite Aid will be exciting for me again this coming week even though the Bayer Meter coupons are gone and expired. I love those coupons since they totally get me to that $20 and $25 mark to use the $5 off $ Rite Aid coupons.  Last week I did two transactions that got me two bottles of Aquify contact solution, the only kind I like, for $1.25 each including tax and 10 cases of 24pk bottle water for $.38 each which is wonderful for our baseball/softball season, travels and exercising.

Onto this week:

BOGOF CoverGirl Sale BOGOF Covergirl Face Coupons!
Free Covergirl Foundation and Blush which will get us over the $20 mark for our VV coupons! Also the Nivea $3.99 matched with the $4/1 Mq in the 5/2 RP! Check out the other great deals at RA on Luv a Bargain

Saved 47% at Old Navy Online!

Saturday, May 01, 2010 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
Here's How:

Old Navy is running a promotion for 30% off Code ONBIG30

First go through Bing's Cashback.  I just learned about Cashback on Bing from  Give Me Neither.  Type in Old Navy Cashback and the 25% off link should pop up. Click it and if it works a box will pop up on the screen and just follow the easy directions.  

You can either register first before following the link or click the link enter your email address and then check your inbox to finish registration. Another great feature with Bing is it shows you your pending total immediately if you long into your Cashback account after you've check out.  

I'm excited to get jeans for almost half off and so much easier than looking for the $50 off $100 on OldNavyWeekly months ago.  When all said and done I spent about $18 for each pair which is not too shabby when you're no longer a size 0 or 1, 3 or 7 for that matter. If your are still those sizes check out Kohl's where last week I found Bongos for my daughter less than $10 after discounts and Angels for $5!

Coconut Oil Brand Comparison

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »

I want to take a moment and break down the different brands and processing methods of Coconut Oil to make an easy comparison on the best deals.

I'll be sharing three great companies: Mountain Rose Herbs, Nutiva and Tropical Traditions.

There are different processing methods which I'd like to break down and then once you decide what is best for you, you can see how prices compare between the three companies. I'm also comparing gallons to gallons because if you're going to buy and use it for a lot of cooking and baking that is the size to buy.

My personal choice is the Unrefined Dry Milling.

Wet-Milling (Gold Seal Tropical Traditions and Nutiva Raw)
  • No Drying Before Pressing
  • Cold-Pressed
  • No Chemicals
  • Unbleached
  • Unrefined
  • Undeodorized
  • Mild Flavor
  • Mild Scent 
  • Certified Organic
  • Highest Cost
Dry-Milling (Mountain Rose Herbs Virgin, Nutiva Virgin, Tropical Traditions Green Label)

  • No Drying Before Pressing
  • Cold-Pressed
  • No Chemicals
  • Unbleached
  • Unrefined
  • Undeodorized
  • Moderate Flavor
  • Moderate Scent 
  • Moderate Cost
  • Certified Organic (except TT has one organic,but not certified which imho would be just as good and you save a little more money)

Cold Pressed Refined (Mountain Rose Herbs, Tropical Traditions Certified Organic and Non-Certified Organic)
  • Cold-Pressed
  • No Chemicals
  • Bleached 
  • Deodorized
  • No Flavor
  • No Color
  • No Scent
  • Great for SkinCare
  • Okay for Cooking
  • Lose Some Health Benefits
Directly from MRHs:This physical refining process is entirely acceptable and approved under organic processing regulations. Note that the items added during the process (citric acid, activated charcoal, and diatomaceous earth) are classified as “processing aids” and not additives because they are entirely removed during processing and are not found in the finished product.

Refined (Wal-Mart's LouAna)
  • Chemicals Used
  • Bleached 
  • Deodorized
  • No Flavor
  • No Color
  • No Scent
  • Low Cost
  • Okay for Skincare
  • Little Health Benefits Left 

Price Chart:

Wet-Milled 1 Gallon
Nutiva Raw~ $54.99($54.99 + Free Shipping)
Tropical Traditions Gold~ $76.92($70-10% Code+ $13.92S&H) 

Dry-Milled Virgin 1 Gallon
Mountain Rose Herbs~$53.28 ($37+$16.28S&H) My Favorite
Nutiva~$49.99($49.99+Free S&H)
Tropical Traditions Green Cert ~$75.27($68.50-10%+$13.92S&H)

Organic Refined 1 Gallon
Mountain Rose Herbs Certified~$27 ($21+$16 S&H)
Tropical Traditions Green Certified~$56.32 ($47-$10%+$14S&H)

Tropical Traditions Green Non-Cert~ $49.10($39-$10%+$14S&H)

Free Coconut Oil!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »


I'm so excited about this offer! I love love Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. The best price I've found in the past is at Nutiva and Mountain Rose Herbs. I'm going to check out the sales at Tropical Traditions today to see if they now compare. In the past TT has always be priced higher, but that could change and I've never asked for price matching so that may be something to look into as well. I can tell you that all three offer Unrefined Coconut Oil which is what you want. This is not what is found in Wal-Mart. Nutiva has a slightly milder taste than Mountain Rose Herb and I'm anxious to see where Tropical Tradition is on the scent/flavor scale.
