A Few Good Deals

While your out shopping this next week here are a couple of good deals that you may not want to pass up.

Fred Meyer

Ground Beef $1.59 lb.

This is my personal stock up price. They tend to sell out quickly when it goes this low so I wouldn't wait too long to get yours. If they are out remember to get a rain check for when they do get some in stock.

Challenge Tuscan Butter $1.99
use $2.00/1 facebook coupon
final: free


At Big Lots this week they have Rayovac heavy duty batteries (8 pack AA or AAA and 4 pack9V) on sale for just $1.90. Take their ad to Walmart and price match it. Then use the $1.00/1 Rayovac coupon here. Just $.90 after price match and coupon. Great for all those toys the kids get at Christmas.

Also in the Big Lots ad they have Fruit of the Loom Ladies socks for just $4.00. Price match it and use the $1.00/1 coupon here and score six pairs of socks for only $3.00.

Walgreens and Rite Aid 11/28

With all the crazy Black Friday shopping I have been doing I am not even going to attempt to come up with the deals for drug store sales which start on Sunday. I am about 90% done with Christmas shopping and about 100% tired of shopping in general. I think I may just take a break this next week and recoup.

With that said go here to I heart rite aid for a break down of the deals at Rite Aid and here to I heart wags for a breakdown of the Walgreens sale. There also will be a four day sale at Walgreens starting on December 1st here.

Other Mothers Freebie Friday!

My friend Collette sent me this email today:

Black Friday event at Other Mothers Boise

Friday, Nov. 26th from 10 am-3pm.

10422 Fairview Ave, Boise, 2 doors west of OMB


We are giving away over a ton, that's 2,000 lbs of baby & kids clothing, shoes, toys, and FREE baby furniture!!!

Each family receives a large red bag. Whatever you can stuff in the bag is FREE. After that, everything is just 25 cents.

If you know someone who is truly in need, please get them to this event.

Why? This is a hard time of year for so many families. We hope our efforts are contagious and that others will also extend a helping hand to those in need. Let's join together and lift those up during this holiday season and through the coming year.

Mark your calendar for Black Friday, or as we call it at Other Mothers... "Freebie Friday".

I have to admit that I have never been to one of Other Mother's sales before. From what I have heard is that they can be pretty crazy and that you should arrive early for the best selection.

$10.00 In Free Stuff At Hallmark!!!

I went to Hallmark this morning and used this $10.00 off any $10.00 purchase coupon from here. You have to sign up but then it lets you print this very high value coupon. I was a little skeptical that it may be a bogus coupon but I was able to use it successfully at the Hallmark in the Nampa mall. The cashier said that it was totally legit.

I was able to snag a Barbie and the Rockers Hallmark Christmas ornament for less than five bucks. Talk a bought nostalgia from my childhood, they were my most favorite thing ever. I can't wait to put it on my tree!

I also used my $5.00 off of $5.00 purchase coupon that I got in the December issue of Women's Day magazine to score 2 rolls of christmas wrap for only $1.56 (includes tax). They have all $4.99 Christmas wrap on sale for buy one get one for $.99. What a fantastic deal!

Albertson's Double Ideas

This Sunday there were 3 Albertson's Twice the Value coupons in Sunday's paper. The exciting part is that they are valid til the 25th so lots of time to use them. I have had what I thought was the flu (it turned out to be a really bad migraine) this weekend so I have not had time to do any match-ups. With that said I will direct you over to A Thrifty Mom. She is an awesome Albertson's shopper and always has great match-ups.
I will say that my favorite double deal is one that continues from last week:

Ziploc Freezer Bags $2.00 (buy 2)
use $1.00/2 from 10/10 and 11/14 SS
pay: $2.00 out of pocket
Get a $1.25 catalina for every two you buy
final: $.75 for two boxes of Ziploc freezer bags

This is what I am going to try to stock up on today (I am feeling so much better). They will be great to have for all the holiday baking.

*Please note that the Freezer bags are the only one which will trigger the catalina!

Redeem Coupons For Swagbucks

We are all sick today and not able to do much but sit around. I have been playing on the internet and found this amazing thing. You can print coupons from the Swagbucks website (same as and for every one coupon that is redeemed you get 10 Swagbucks. How awesome is that. I can earn even more just by doing something I already do. It does take 8-12 weeks for the Swagbucks to appear on your account but that doesn't bother me. I am so excited about this find.

Just go here and make sure you are logged onto your account. Then look under Earn at the top and go to coupons. Print, use and get swagbucks. I figure that it will only take redeeming 45 coupons to earn enough Swagbucks to get a $5.00 Amazon gift card. And with the way that I use coupons those gift cards will totally add up. Yay!

New Bath and Body Works Coupon

One of my favorite coupons of all time from Bath and Body Works is back. Go here to print a coupon for free Signature Travel Size Item with any purchase (up to $5.00 value). I will normally buy a small hand sanitizer $1.00 or a sanitizer holder $.50 and then get the free item. Essentiallly buy something for the least out of pocket to get more bang for your buck. These are great for stocking stuffers.

New Pillsbury Flaky Cinnamon Rolls Coupon

Go here to get a this hot $.70/1 Pillsbury Flaky Cinnamon Rolls coupon. This week Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls are part of Albetson's Instant Spolight savings and if this variety is included they could make for some really cheap cinnamon rolls.

Albertson's Deal Idea
Pillsbury Flaky Cinnamon Rolls $1.99 before saving $1.49 if you buy 10 other items
use $.70/1 here
use 1 doubler
final: $.59 or $.09 if you buy 10 other participating items

Depending on how many coupons you can print there is also a catalina to match with this deal:

New Ladies Froot of the Loom Coupon

All You has a new exclusive coupon for $1.00/1 off Ladies Fruit of the Loom Socks 6 pair pack here. This will be great with the Black Friday sale at Fred Meyer. Every year (for the last 9 that I have been doing it) they have had all their socks on sale for 50% off. We always go and stock up.

Since I am in serious need on new socks this coupon will be perfect! Yay! Now if there were just some coupons for the Gold Toe brand (which are ridiculously expensive). My husband is such a sock snob.

New Snack Picks Coupons

In my email today there were a couple new Snack Picks coupons that would go great with the movie theater ticket deal which runs through today at Albertson's.

$1.00/2 KeeblerClub crackers

$1.00/1 Nurti-Grain Super Fruit cereal bars

I am kind of sad that they didn't come out yesterday when I already bought some of the super fruit variety bars at Albertson's. Oh well you can't win them all.

Albertson's Preview 11/17-11/25

The Albertson's ad preview for this next week is up here at Pinching Your Pennies. The sale runs until the 25th this week. Hopefully we will see some doublers on Sunday to sweeten some of the deals. I have heard rumors of them all month, but we will just have to wait and see for sure.

Some of my favorites are:

Campbells Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken Soup, 10.75 oz. $.79
use $1.50/3 from here
final: $.29

Campbells Gravy $.47
use Campbells Gravy, any .50/4 (1-31-11) SS-10/31
final: $.35 wyb 4

There are lots of things that would be great with doublers but not so great without. I will be waiting to shop there until after Sunday. I'm crossing my fingers that the rumors are true.

Cheer Rolling +Up Reward At Rite Aid!

This week at Rite Aid they have Cheer on sale for $4.99 with a $1.00 +up reward. Well I had a hunch that it would print multiple when I went yesterday. And you know it did. I also found out that this is a rolling reward so you can buy one and then use the reward on another and get another reward. Pair this deal with the $2.00/1 Cheer coupon from 10/10 PG and you got yourself the making of some cheap laundry soap.

Also don't forget that there is a new $5.00/$25.00 coupon on Redplum here to sweeten this!

Two Free Tacos Today After 2pm

Jack In The box is offering 2 free tacos to everyone after 2pm today. Now totally free is my way of doing things. My son's wrestling got changed to another night so me thinks that we will be having tacos for dinner.

A Couple Of Good Deals From the Grapevine!

I got an email from my friend Janeil about a the good deal on M&M's at Walgreens.

Buy 4 Holiday M&M's 4/$10.00 get $5.00 RR
use 2 - $1.00/2 from 11/14 RP
or use $1.00/1 pretzel variety coupon from here (can print 2 per computer)
final: as low as $1.00 for four after RR (if you can print 4 pretzel coupons)
if you only have the $1.00/2 then they are $.75 each after the RR

This is a stock up price for me! (My waistline may not like me after though)

She also mentioned that she found coupons for Stove Top Buy 4 get 5th free at Fred Meyer. I have also seen them at various Albertson's in the area also. Here is an awsome way to use this coupon at Target.

5- Stove top $.79 each
use 2-$1.00/2 stove top coupons from here
use 2- $.50/2 target coupons from their website
1- buy 4 get 1 free
final: $.16 for all 5

Thanks a bunch Janeil. I always appreciate your awesome tips!

Walmart Black Friday Ad Released

I was not expecting this so early but Walmart's Black Friday Ad has been released on Black There are some killer deals to be had. The time frame is between 5 am and 11 am. I am thinking that it seems shorter this year but maybe it's just me. Go here to check it out.

My First Bountiful Basket

I am so excited about my first Bountiful Basket that I got on Saturday. It was full of so many great things. (The picture is really bad because it was taken on a phone). This is what I got:

5 lb. Bag Potatoes
Bag full of Brussel Sprouts
7 bananas
7 medium size pears
7 Honey Crisp Apples
1 Head of Lettuce
1 Acorn Squash
1 large Stalk Celery
7 Corn on Cob
6 Persimmons
8 Tangerines
2-3 lbs. Grapes

For all of this it cost $16.50 ($15.00 for basket and $1.50 processing fee). Plus since it was my first time getting one, I had to pay a one time fee of $3.00. If I were to buy it at the regular store (even with sales) it would have cost me at least $30.00. So getting it for $19.50 is a sweet deal. Especially for fresh produce. Also most of it is stuff that we already eat; except the persimmons which we have already tried and love.(you eat them like an apple).

If you haven't tried them before Bountiful Baskets is a food co-op. It is normally half fruit and half vegetables. You do have to have a credit or debit card to get it and there is a specific time that you have to pick it up or it gets donated to the food bank. When picking it up you need to bring a container of some sort of your own to carry it home in. You can learn more about it on there website here.

Today at 12pm is when you can start ordering and Tuesday night is the deadline. If you do decide to buy one I would do it early as spots tend to fill up quickly. I can't wait until next week.

A Few Fred Meyer Deals

In this weeks Fred Meyer ad there are several really good deals. Here are my favorites:

Apples $.68 lb.

Milk $1.99

Fred Meyer Canned Broth or Vegetables 3/$1.00 with in ad coupon Limit 9 per transaction.
(I really like to buy the unusual vegetables with this like beets and canned potatoes when they have this coupon because it is hard to get them at this price anywhere else)

Stove Top $1.00
use $1.00/2 here or here
final: $.50

Albertson's Double Deals!

Again we got Twice the Value coupon this weekend from Albertson's. We are getting so spoiled. A Thrifty Mom came up with all kinds of great deals to use them with. These are my favorites:

Carnation Evaporated Milk $1

Rhodes Warm N Serve Rolls $2.50

Have A Happy Sunday!

As I have said before I don't post anything on Sunday's. Instead I want to encourage everyone to spend lots of time with their families and to take a break from all the coupon deals today. So to put it simply get off the computer and go spend time with those you love!

Have a great Sunday!

New Rite Aid $5.00/$25.00 Coupon

On Redplum there is a new Rite Aid $5.00/$25.00 coupon. This should make for some really sweet deals. I wasn't going to Rite Aid this week but now I may have to rethink that.

Walgreens Printable Coupons

I was excited to see today that Walgreens is now offering printable coupons. Most are the same coupons as the Walgreens coupons booklet that is in stores (you know the ones by the registers) but there are a few other coupons also. Head over here to check it out and possibly print some. This is great because some times when a deal is hot they will run out of the Walgreens booklets in the stores; now there will be another place to get them.

Labels For Teachers: A Perfect Gift

What a great idea to make up these labels and give them the teacher's in your life for Christmas. You can get 140 labels shipped from Vista Print for a little over $3.00 (mine came to $3.14 for the slow shipping). I have seen this deal on many other websites and have always thought about doing it for my son's teacher. Well I must be in the mood to do deals this week because I ordered some this afternoon.

This is how you can get in on the deal:

Go here and click on labels on the left hand side

Click on Get Started

Look for the Industry drop down menu along the top bar

Click on Education and Child Care

Select the address label you like and design it

Hopefully it will arrive just in time to give it to his teacher!

Target Ad Sneak Peak

If like me you want to get a head start on next weeks coupon deals then head over here to Totally Target she has a sneak peak at the ad which starts on Sunday. I haven't been to Target in a while and this ad wasn't too exciting to me. I think I will save my energy for Albertson's.

The Black Friday Countdown!

Every year my family has a tradition of shopping the Black Friday sales. We all get together and normally the men folk watch the kids and we head to brave the craziness. Although it is really busy and I am not 100% sure it is always worth it, I just love to go. This year will be no different, except my husband really wants to go too.

I have been looking at some of the ads for Black Friday early at
It seems like there are lots of places that I want to go but there is only one thing that I want to get at each store. This could be frustrating but I have a little secret on how I will be able to get in on most of the deals and have to only go to one store. My trick is to go to Walmart with my ads in hand an price match. It has to be for like items and within the timeframe of the sale (i.e. if the sale is only from 5am-1pm then you have to go then.) In the years past I have done this with tons of sucess. Especially if the item is not on sale at Walmart then I can go later in the day when the rush is over and get the item I want. Ironically what should be the craziest day at Walmart is normally the easiest for me. They will price match almost any ad so it should make for this Black Friday to be a little more stress free!

Toys R Us Hasbro Game Deal Gone

It has been confirmed that the Toys R Us Gift card deal I told you about here is now dead. The offer stated while supplies lasted so I guess they must have run out. There are still some great deals to be had but you will not get the gift card if you go. Just a heads up if you were going to try to get in on it.

Caramel Popcorn In A Jar!

When I saw this cute idea from Little House on the Prairie Living I knew that it would be a perfect Chritmas gift to make for one of my neighbors. It's caramel popcorn in jar and it looks so easy to make. Go here for directions. It also goes along great with the sale at Albertson's this week on Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk. Here's the deal:

Eagle Sweetened Condensed Milk $ (part of the Spotlight savings buy 10 get $5.00 off)
use $1.00/2 from 11/07 RP or $.55/1 here
double it (there should be doublers out on Sunday)
final: as low as $.39 each (if you get the spotlight savings discount)

It should make for a really cute and inexpensive homemade gift. Which just happen to be my favorite kind.

Toys R Us Hasbro Game Deal.

I have been hesitant to post anything about this deal because well I wanted to see how in stock my local store was before I got everyone's hopes up. I went yesterday and they were low on stock with most games. I wasn't able to get all the games I wanted but was able to get different games and my deal worked. I talked with the manager and he said that they should be getting in more games in on Friday. I have however not had the best luck with what they say actually being accurate so I would call before going just to be sure they have what you want.

Here's the deal details you should know:

Buy $35.00 worth of Hasbro games at Toys R Us get a $10.00 gift card and through Saturday there are lots of games on sale this week.

There are rebates for select Hasbro games that corrispond with this sale. Go here to look at and print the form or get it on tear pads in the store. I found mine right by the games. You must buy the games at Toys R Us between 10/21 to 12/31/2010 to qualify.

Here is a list of games that qualify:

BOARD GAMES Bop it – $3 Hi-Ho Cherry O – $2
Battleship – $3 Bop it Bounce – $3 Chutes and Ladders – $2
Operation – $3 Cuponk – $3 Cootie – $2
Monopoly – $3 U Build games (all versions ) – $3 Candy Land ( All Versions ) – $2
Scrabble – $3 Guess Who – $3 Don’t Spill the beans – $2
Connect 4 – $3 Gator Golf – $3 Don’t Break the Ice – $2
Sorry – $3 Hungry Hungry Hippos – $3 Ants in the Pants – $2
Trouble – $3 Elefun – $3 VIDEO GAMES
Twister – $3 Pop Goes Froggio – $3 Monopoly Streets(Wii, PS3 & Xbox) $5
Life – $3 Memory ( All Versions )- $2 Family Game night 3 (Wii, PS3, & Xbox) $5

To get the rebates you must buy what is specified on the rebate and there is a limit of one kind of game rebate per household. So you can't just go buy 10 of one kind.

This is the deal that I did:
1 Candyland $3.00
1 Chutes and Ladders $3.00
1 Ants in the pants $5.00
1 Memory $5.00
1 Don't Spill the beans $5.00
1 Cootie $5.00
1 Connect 4 $10.99
total out of pocket: $36.99

I then got a $10.00 gift card. And I will get back $15.00 in rebates. So it is like getting each game for $1.72. Great price. If you don't want to get that many games then you could do this deal:

1 Candyland $3.00
1 Chutes and Ladders
pay: $6.00
Get back $4.00 in rebates. Final cost only $1.00 per game.

There are lots of games included in this promo so if you want you could easily come up with a great deal scenario. The only problem I have found is that they don't always have everything that I want in stock. If you don't want to get the gift card you could also wait and see what sales they will be having in the next few weeks and then do the rebate.

Head over here to get four Blooming Buddy Stickers. This offer is only good until November 15th.

In my Press Tribune today there was a full page ad from Fred Meyer with lots of great coupons for thier four day sale. My favorites include:

Fred Meyer Brand Stock or Vegetables 3/$1.00 Limit 9

Campbell Cream of Mushroom or Chicken soup 2/$1.00
use $1.00/4 here
final: $.25

My Rite Aid Trip And This Weeks Deals!

Did I mention I have been so busy this past week? Well it is Monday night and I still have not put together the Rite Aid deals for this week. Since I don't forsee that happening any time soon; head on over here to Mavin of Savin and check out the deals she has come up with (this is one of my favorite sites).

Although I haven't had time to post the deals I did make it over to Rite Aid today. I totally forgot a coupon that would have made it cheaper but I still think I did pretty well. Here's what I did:

1 Maybaline Eye Studio Makeup $3.72 (on sale 40% off)
1 Electrosol Gel $2.39 (on sale 50% off)
2 M&M Pretzal 9.9 oz. bags $3.99 (Bogo on sale)
1 Skittles $.50
2 Bags Sugar Free Werthers Originals $1.50 each
2 Nexcare Bandaids $1.99 each
1 Lady's Speedstick $1.99
Clearanced Decorative Pumpkin $.49
total: $20.13

coupons used:
$4.00/$20.00 Video Values coupon
$2.00/1 Maybaline Video Values
$2.00/1 Maybaline eye studio from magazine
2-$1.00/1 M&M Pretzal Variety coupon from here
$.25 Skittles Video Values coupon
2-$1.00/1 Nexcare coupon here
$.75/1 Lady's Speed Stick here
$1.00/2 Werthers from 10/3 SS

I paid with a $1.00 +Up Reward from last week and four of the coupons wouldn't scan so they gave me $.25 extra off (it's a long story).
Total: $4.88
And I got back another $1.00 +Up reward for buy the Werthers.

If I had remembered my $1.00 Lady Speed stick Video Values coupon I would have saved even more. But oh well not every deal can be perfect.

Thanks a bunch Janiel, you rock!

Albertson's Doubler Suprise!

This past week has been so busy and I haven't been keeping up really well on all the deals, so I was super suprised to see the Albertson's Twice the Value Coupons in this Sunday's paper. I am sure there are lots of deals to be had with them. Here's my favorite deal that I am trying today:

7 Albertson's cream of Mushroom and Chicken soup $.79 each
3 Mrs. Cubbins Stuffing $1.49
- $5.00 instant savings
use 3- $.55/1 Mrs. Cubbins Stuffing from 11/07 RP
use 3 doublers
final: $3.20

The stuffing will be great to have around this holiday season and the soup is just an awesome price. I am hoping that the soup will be in stock it seems to be the hot item this week. If they are out I plan on switching it out for the broth which is $.35 each. It will make my total to $3.62. Sometimes it is good to have a back up plan especially when shopping Albertson's.

To find more great deals head over here to A Thrifty Mom. She always has a really great list.

How To Disable a Doorbell?

I have this huge problem, well actually two kind of smallish problems. My neighbors boys. Everyday this week they have come over to my house ringing the doorbell to see if my son can play. This week has been really busy, so I have said no every day. Well it never fails that each day they come back four or five times to see if he can play. I am at the point that I am going to march over to their parents house and make a big fuss about it (so much for being friends with the neighbors). I am so tired them ringing our doorbell. I may just have to disable it and tell them to never come over again. (Ha Ha). Anyone know how to disable a doorbell? Any help would be great!

New Coffee Mate Creamer Coupon

I don't drink coffee but I was excited to see this $1.00/1 Coffee Mate creamer coupon. I really like to use the plain variety when I am cooking (it makes homemade mac and cheese so much better) and the flavored kind is really good in hot cocoa. I am hoping to get some holiday kind like egg nog or gingerbread. Yum!

Albertson's Ad Preview 11/3

This next weeks Albertson's ad preview is up right now on Pinching Your Pennies. Just go here to take a peak at what will be on sale. I am not expecting there to be any doublers on Sunday since we already had them this week. Here are my favorite deals:

Mentos Gum, 15 pc. $1.00
use $1.00/1 from 10/3 SS
final: free

Spotlight savings save $5.00 when you buy 10 items (essentially $.50 per item). Prices reflect if you were to buy 10 items.

Albertsons Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken Soup, 10.5 oz. $.29

Albertsons Broth, 14.5 oz. $.39

Pepsi Soft Drink, 2 liter bottle $.79

Hobby Lobby Coupon

There is a new 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon that is good until the November 6. Just go here and print it. This is my favorite craft store of all time.

Go Vote!!!!

I just wanted to remind everyone to go and vote today. I went early this morning so I could go with my husband (it's something we like to do together). It doesn't take very long and it is so important. Plus you also get a very trendy sticker to wear around that says "I Voted". Now I don't say this often but get off the computer and go make your voice heard.

Cheap Olay Body Wash At Walmart!

I had heard rumors about this fantastic deal on Olay body wash at Walmart but I didn't want to post anything until I saw what the prices were at my local store and if it would actually work. I went earlier this morning (there is one next to our dry cleaners where I was already heading) and I was super excited to see that it did in fact work. So here's the deal:

Buy 1 Olay Body Washes on a Rollback for $5.00
buy 1Secret Deoderants Travel Size $.97
use $5.00/1 Olay Body wash wyb Secret Deoderant from PG 10/31 (limit 4 per person per day)
Final: $.97 for everything

I couldn't believe that our local Walmart actually had the prices the same as other parts of the country which tend to be cheaper. And the coupons went through fine. So if you are heading to Walmart I would totally grab some. I think that it would be perfect for a gift basket for my son's teacher. (Her birthday is this week). Or even to give as a Christmas gift.

Walgreens Shopping Is Looking Up!

I have mentioned this before but since we moved into our new house I have really hated shopping at Walgreens. They can be so rude and often are never in stock of the items with coupons. It has been really frustrating. Recently however I have found that they are not so bad and I have been able to score some great stuff. Today was one of those days when all the stars align. Here's what I did (please note that the prices are after tax):

Transaction 1:
2 Sinex $10.00
1 Plastic Tumbler (Halloween) clearanced $16
used 2- $4.00/1 Sinex from PG10/10
and $1.00 Register Reward from last week
total: $1.77
Got back $5.00 Register Reward

Transaction 2:
3 Tide Stain Release $3.99 each
1 Plastic Tumbler (Halloween) clearanced $.16
used 3- $2.00/1 tide stain release from PG 10/31
and $5.00 RR from previous transaction
total: 1.86

Transaction 3:
2 Sinex $10.00
1 Plastic Tumbler (Halloween) clearanced $.16
used 2- $4.00/1 Sinex from PG10/10
and $5.00 Register Reward from last transaction
total: $.77
Got back $5.00 Register Reward

Transaction 4:
1 Zarbees Children's Cough Syrup $5.99
1 Plastic Tumbler (Halloween) clearanced $.16
1 pack Silly Bands $1.99 (great stocking stuffer)
used $3.00/1 Zarbees previously available on facebook
and $5.00 Register Reward from last transaction

1 Plastic Tumbler (Halloween) clearanced $.16
used $3.00/1 Zarbees previously available on facebook
and $2.00 Register Reward from last transaction
total: $.77
Got back $6.00 Register Reward

I spent a total of $7.22 out of pocket and I still have $6.00 in Register Rewards to use next time. I am now really stocked up on cold medecine and Halloween plastic tumblers. Sweet!

Kuna Walgreens Grand Opening Coupon!

I was super excited when I went to the Kuna Walgreens this morning and they had coupons for $3.00/$10.00 purchase (limit one per customer) on their ads to celebrate their Grand Opening. If you live in this neck of the woods I would totally stop in and see what great deals you can find.

Nabisco Coupons At Orchard Street Albertson's

While I was at the Orchard Street (Boise) Albertson's today they had $1.00 off Nabisco cookies when you buy milk coupons at there registers. So potentially you could score some really cheap cookies with this coupon and a doubler. I am unsure if any other Albertson's have them but it couldn't hurt to ask. Or if you want you can also print the same coupon off here. (They are only giving out 50,000 so I would hurry in order to get one). Milk and cookies sound so good right now! YUM!

Late Albertson's Doubler Deals!

I knew we would be getting doubles this weekend but somehow it totally escaped my mind to do a post on them. Oh well better late than never right. So as most of you probably know there were four (yes I said four) Albertston's Twice the Value coupons in Sundays paper. WooHoo!

Here are my favorite ways to use them:

Trident Layers Gum $1.09
use $1.00/2 from 10/24 SS or
$0.75/1 Trident Layers Gum
and a doubler

But since you can print 4 Juicy Juice per computer (two from each site) then if you only have one computer you could still do either transaction; just unfortunately not both. Or come up with your own deals because I am sure that there are even better ones than what I come up with. Happy Shopping!

Walgreens Deal On Sinex

First off I just want to acknowledge that I haven't been up on posting anything this weekend. To be honest it has been so busy that it didn't even really occur to me that I hadn't scheduled any posts. Well I am back today with an awesome deal on Sinex at Walgreens (I saw it on a blog late on Saturday night and can't seem to remember where). Here's the deal:

Buy 2 Niquil Sinex on sale 2/$10.00 (not pictured in ad but should ring up that price)
use 2 $4.00/1 from PG 10/10
pay: $2.00
Get back $5.00 register reward

So a $3.00 moneymaker! It is such a sweet deal and I have been on and off sick lately so I stocked up and did this twice. I'll post my awesome Walgreens deals later when I have more time, so check back then.
