Where Have I Been?

If you have been following my blog you may be asking where have I been for over a week?

Well I have had one of the hardest weeks in my life. My mother passed away and I have been planning her funeral. We knew that she had been sick but it was still a shock to have her go so quickly. I am planning on sharing more of this past weeks journey when I am ready to.

Now the funeral is over and all my family has gone home. I have been debating if I want to continue doing this blog or not. I have been going back and forth for the past several days and decided that I love doing this and will be back.

The question now is when. Although it won't be as much right away I think that I will have new posts starting next Monday. My plan is to take things slow for now and get things back to a normal routine.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I'll be back on Monday!

Bath And Body Works Wallflowers Sale

I have been getting tons of Bath and Body works emails about their Wallflowers (2 pack refills) being on sale for only $6.00. Thats over half off their regular price. Every time I get an email I tell myself that I am going to go get some more but I have yet to do it. I got an email today saying that the sale ends on Sunday. I guess I will have to head over there this weekend to pick some up. I absolutely love their new scent Leaves. It totally smells like fall to me. I am also tempted to try the Sweet Cinnimon Pumpkin. It sounds so yummy.

Go here to see all the scents they have. If you decide to order online use the code SHIP3 to get free shipping on any order $50.00 or over. If you prefer to buy in store go here to get a free signature collection item (up to $12.00) free with a $10.00 purchase. Or go here to print a coupon valid for a FREE Signature Collection Travel Size Item with ANY purchase (up to a $5 value).

Remember To Search Swagbucks

Just wanted to remind you all that today is Mega Swagbucks Day and the chances of winning Swagbucks is increased by a lot.

I just thought that I would mention that I am less than 100 Swagbucks away from another $5.00 Amazon Gift card. That will bring my total to $65. We are saving our gift cards to buy a Wii. So we are over a quarter of the way there. Now I just have to pray for a good sale so we can get one for Christmas.

Possibly Free Wonka Exceptionals at Walmart

I haven't tried these but I do love chocolate so I might have to stop in to see if they are priced the same at my local Walmart. (The prices can vary by region.)

Wonka Exceptionals Bagged Chocolate, 9.5 oz $1.50
$1.50/1 Wonka Exceptionals, any 8.5-9.5 oz. bag from RP 9/12
Final Price: FREE

Thanks Saving with Amy

My Favorite Disney Movie and A Sweet Deal

I just love Beauty and The Beast. It is hands down my favorite princess movie. I don't know why but it just always has been. Well awhile ago I noticed that they were putting it on Blue Ray and ever since then I have been super excited to see it in that format. (Yes very dorky I know.) Well Collin over at Hip 2 Save came up with a sweet deal scenario to get both Beauty and the Beast and Tinker Bell The Great Fairy Rescue for only $20.00 at Toys R Us. It is such a great value considering that they are the combo Blueray and DVD packs. Head over here and look at her scenario. It is kind of confusing so make sure you read through it carefully or maybe even a couple of times in order to get it straight. Oh I am so excited about this one! Yay!

P.S. If you need the UPC for the Beauty and the Beast movie it is 786936171631.

Cheap Cooking Soups at Albertson's

Go here to print this new coupon for $1.50/3 Campbells condensed cooking soups. Then head to Albertson's where they have the Cream of Mushroom and Chicken on sale this week for just $.79 so only $.29 each after coupons. Plus these qualify for the 500 labels for education when you buy $15.00 in select Campbells products. I would print it now because this is a hot deal and the print limit will be reached quickly.

Soda Catalina When You Buy Chex Mix

I stopped by Albertson's this morning to use my doublers and another shopper told me about a sweet deal on soda when you buy Chex Mix. Buy 3 Chex Mix and get a Catalina for Free 12 pack of soda up to $3.00. I did mine in sets of four Chex mix (it worked better that way with my coupons) and it printed out just fine. I also did a transaction with 10 Chex Mix and 3 catalinas printed out. I can't confirm that it is in fact 3 you must buy but it seems to follow what I have heard.

The catalina expires on 9/27 so I am hoping for a great deal on Coke 12 packs in the next couple of weeks. (Coke at my store was $4.50 and I would love to be able to get it for free with the Catalina).


Go here to get a coupon for Buy one Get One Free Jamba Juice. Yummy!
I'm not sure there are any in the Treasure Valley or not, but I will be hunting one down if I can.

Kraft Cheese Coupon Reset and Possible Free Cream Cheese

The Kraft $5 Off 5 Cheese/Dairy Products Coupon has been reset. I was not only able to print it on my computer again but we got my husbands computer to print it also. I have heard that you can score free cream cheese at Walmart with this coupon but I haven't been there yet to check the local prices. I'll post what I find out if I have time to stop in today.

Cheap Chicken If We Get Doubles

While shopping at Albertson's this week I got an advertisement for a new catalina starting 9/13.
It states:
Buy 2 Tyson products get $2.00 oyno
Buy 3 Tyson Products get $4.00 oyno

This should make for a really great deal if we do in fact get doubles tomorrow.

Buy 3-Tyson Bagged and Breaded Chicken $4.99 each
use $1.00/1 from 7/25 or 8/15 SS
use 3- doublers
pay: $8.97 out of pocket
Get back $4.00 catalina
like paying $1.66 per bag

You can then take your catalina and roll it into the next transaction. I plan on using my $3.00 catalina from buying Pillsbury this week on my first transaction to make my initial out of pocket less.

Last Day For Rite Aid Deal

I am really late at posting this but it is such a good deal that I can't keep it to myself. (Please note that this is only good through today.) Here's what I did at Rite Aid this week:

Buy 4 Electrisol Finish $5.49 each
Buy 2 Air Wick I Motions $4.99 each

use 4- $3.00/1 Electrisol here and here
2-$4.00/1 Air Wick I Motion Starter Kits from 8/8 SS
and $5.00/$25.00 coupon here

pay out of pocket: $8.24
get $10.00 up reward
It's a 1.76 moneymaker!

I really needed more dishwasher soap and you can't beat the price.

Albertson's Catalina Update

It seems that the Green Giant Vegetables catalina is not printing at Albertson's . I went this morning and bought both the boxes with sauce and the steamers and nothing. I am unsure on if it is a real catalina deal or not. I was told by the manager that a lady had a catalina that advertised it and was going to call Catalina. So I guess we will have to wait and see.

On a brighter note the catalina for Pillsbury is printing fine. I bought 6 Grands Biscuits and got a $3.00 catalina.

I will keep everyone posted on whether or not the Green Giant catalina will ever be printing.

I also heard rumors that there will be doubles on Sunday. For those of you in the Boise area though I am unsure if it is going to be a coupon round up or not. I am hoping for doubles.

The Kellogs Promo of buy 10 items also contiues from last week.

If we get either doubles or the coupon round up this weekend then these deals would be really fantastic. Normally this would be a doubles weekend but with the way things have been at Albertson's I just don't know anymore. Maybe if we all cross our fingers then this kind of stinker of a week will turn into a great one.

Have a Fun Labor Day!

We are traveling home today so I won't be able to post very much. I hope that everyone has a fun and safe Labor Day!

Since this weekend is a holiday there won't be any coupon inserts. I am kind of glad about that because we are going to be out of town and I always worry that I will somehow not get my papers if I am not home. Silly I know, but it's just a little quirk of mine.

I've Been Sick!

On Monday night I woke up really really sick. I had been suffering for a headache for several days and it got so bad that I was sick to my stomach. Needless to say yesterday I was completely immobilized by the headache. When I went to the doctor this morning I found out that it was a really bad migraine. I get headaches a lot but seriously this was the worst one that I have ever had. Well the doctor prescribed some fast acting medicine. I could not believe how well it worked. Within an hour of taking it I was feeling so much better and by this afternoon I feel great. (A little off from the medicine but no horrible pain.)

Well I just thought I would mention just how exspensive medicine is. With our insurance it cost around $22.00 but if we hadn't had insurance it would have cost us $197.00. And that was only for nine pills! How crazy is that! Thats over twenty bucks a pill. I had to take two pills today so if I hadn't had insurance with a good perscription plan I would have just spent my weekly grocery budget on two pills. It is such a racket. How do people afford to pay for medicines they need if they don't have insurance.
Because of the rising cost of health care my husband and I have put a really high priority on always having decent health insurance. In fact when my husband first got out of law school he had a job with really high insurance prices for me. We decided that it was too risky to not pay the higher premiums than to not have health insurance for me. Although it was a higher amount every month for the premiums we were not left with high health care bills we would have had without it. Now my husbands job has really good health insurance with low premiums. We are really grateful for that. But even if we didn't have it we would still pay more each month because you just never know what could happen.

What do you all feel about health insurance? Is it worth it to you?
