Few updates

Hello readers!
I wanted to fill you in and let you know that I have in no way abandoned this blog and that things will pick up even more than they have before... Just in another week or two.

As most of you know I am a college student, employee, blogger and  very busy this week!
Last week was finals, I managed to injure my hand during work (it's fine! stitches come out tomorrow!) and both my work and school schedule are changing so it is going to take some time for me to adjust and let things settle back down. This week I will do some updates however likely not as many, I need to tackle all the projects around my house that are sitting unfinished at this moment so they don't become larger time consuming projects later!

Look forward to these post segments coming to you in the next few weeks:

Getting ahead
Healthy life tips
Couponing 101

Thank you for your patience!

For the mean time to satiate your couponing needs I will refer you to the lovely people at Frugal Living NW and This Beautiful Frugal Life. Their ideas/tips/coupon tricks are usually able to be used in our area as well (although we get a lot of price differences down here in Eugene)

*HOT* $2/1 Challenge Butter Coupon

Head on over the the Challenge Butter Facebook page and like them to print a great high value $2/1 Coupon. Often times these coupons lead to FREE Butter!

My Totally Awesome Target Trip!

I went with a friend of mine (Thanks Aggie for keeping me company!) to Target today and snagged this great deal and here's how:

Buy 4 Shick Hydro Silk Razors
*You will get a $5 gift card when you buy 2 (I got $10 in gift cards in this trip)
Use 4 $4/1 coupons from from the 2/26 Smart Source Insert
Use 4 $1.50/1 Target Store Shick Hydro Razor Coupon
 **(I only had 3 on me so your total would be $1.50 less!)
Total OOP (out of pocket): $17.46
Recieve: $10 gift cards

Buy 3 Up & Up Toothbrushes for $1.29 ea
Use 3 $1/1 Target Oral Care Coupon

Buy 2 Up & Up Panty Liners for $1.97
Use 2 .75/1 Up & Up Feminine Product coupon
Buy 2 Krave Cereals (the second one is in the picture but is hiding behind the other one lol) for $3.19
Use 2 $1/1 Krave Cereals Coupon (You will need the "Savings Club Membership" But that is FREE for a limited time if you go HERE AND SIGN UP NOW!)
use 1 $1.50/2 Target Store Krave coupon

TOTAL: $6.38
USE: $10 Gift Card
Total OOP: $0 (With a remaining $3.31 on one of the gift cards)

So Basically I paid $7.46 (With $3.31 remaining on my Gift Card) for all the above products... I would like to point out the Razors alone are $9.49 EACH before coupons!

And even if you only bought 2 of the razors and got the $5 back (if you don't have enough coupons to do the razor deal twice), you could still make yourself a fantastic deal w/coupons!

My $24.40 Fred Meyer Shopping Trip *INCLUDES 49 Cent Cereal!*

Before I get started I would like to say that the cost was brought up by the Platex Gloves. While they are part of the Buy 10 save $5 event, it would have been cheaper to just grab an extra bag of Goldfish, however I needed the Gloves to clean house :) Also I know the TP isn't an insane deal, but it's still not too bad and it was another thing we needed at home.

How the Buy 10 save $5 deal works is when you buy 10 participating items (Mix and match!) you instantly save $5 off of your total!

 2 Fred Meyer brand Home Sense toilet paper 12 count double rolls 
  • Price: 2 for $7 (With In-Ad Coupon)

12  Count Kroger brand Large Eggs 
  • Price 3 for $4 (With In-Ad Coupon)
3 8oz Shredded Kroger Brand Cheese
  • Price $3 for $5  (With In-Ad Coupon)
Goldfish packages
  • $1 ea when you buy 10 participating items
2 Boxes Mom's Best Naturals Oats & Honey Blend, 3 Boxes Mallow Oats, 3 Boxes Toasted Cinnamon Squares
(COUPONING TIP! Remember it is $1 off of TWO boxes but if you are using this to fill your deal towards your 10 participating items you need more than one coupon. I used 4 for my 8 Boxes. After you fill out the info and follow the steps to print the coupon hit the back button on your browser. You will likely get a Dialog box saying something to the effect of Confirm Re-submission of Data and you will tell it yes. This will allow you to print it one more time per computer. For example: I printed 2x from my computer and 2x from my laptop.)

I just managed to score some pretty good deals and get 8% cash back (Can't complain about that!)
How did I pull it off?

  • Step Two: Once your Ebates account is complete (remember to check your e-mail in case they require verification) go to the top right of their website and use the search bar to search for Bare Necessities then click the Orange SHOP NOW button
  • Step Three: Click on the EXTRA SAVINGS EVENT Banner/photo which will save you up to 80% off and they have some fantastic deals right now. They have great quality stuff and cover all sorts of bra sizes up to a 56H!
  • Bonus step: IF you are a SHOPRUNNER.com Member you can get free two day shipping. Shop Runner is fantastic however expensive if you don't manage to snag one of their free trials. You can check here www.Shoprunner.com to see if they are. Otherwise they can be expensive to join, I managed to snag a free membership and I can guarantee if they run a promo again, I will let you all know!
UPDATE: Shoprunner is running a deal right now! For $1 you can get a year of Shoprunner.com and that $1 goes to a good cause! Click here to check it out!

Target Clearance Deals as of 1/24/2012

Hello readers!

I would like to tell you about my Target store trip today in hopes that it will save you money too!
When I was at the Target on West 11th they were marking down a bunch of their large packs of products. Some of you may be familiar with these, they fill the isles right after Christmas. Some I have found were OK deals but never anything to get excited about. But when they are 30-50% off... Now that's a whole new story!

So here is a few things I picked up. Now remember these are clearance sales so once they are gone.. they are gone for good!

Axe Men's Deodorant $2.50 for a 3 PACK! That's .83 Cents for each stick of deodorant. If you have an AXE Lover in your house you'll LOVE this price!

Same Deal on the Dove Mens Deodorant
And The Dove Women's Deodorant

3.83L (1.01 Gallon) Ultra Downy Fabric Softener (Does 150 loads) is on clearance for $4.98 that is only .03 cents a load. Yup! Not too shabby :) (Coupons are valid on clearance items as well so check and see if you have any Downy Coupons to pair with this deal!)

QUANTUM Finish Tabs 3pack of 25 count for 5.98 (Original price $11.99) Now this isn't the most amazing deal (Although they had the regular finish tabs for the same price with a higher count but I chose to get these because I prefer them a bit more however the regular finish tabs do the job just fine!) If you still have the $2.15 off one package coupon that came out in the Register Guard on the 8th that would bring these down to only $3.83

Frosted Flakes 2pk for $2.74 Sure at the right time of year you can get frosted flakes for way cheaper than $1.37 per a 1.1lb box But if you have a fan of Frosted Flakes in your house like I do than these are still a good deal (Kellogg's coupons may stack with these, I however am currently overhauling my coupon organizer so I didn't have my Cereal Coupons with me)

Goldfish! $4.48 for a 2.5 Lb box Thats only 11 Cents per ounce (Which is better than Costco and our regular "Stock up" price which is 13 Cents per ounce)

Ivory Soap. Ok not the worlds breaking deal but we could use some bar soap in the house.
it was on sale for $3.64 for 10 bars so approx 36 cents per bar (These were located on an endcap at the end of the health/beauty section)

Kids ZBars. These were a great deal considering the Product. If you are a fan of ZBars or your Kids are these are on Clearance for $4.00 per box of 18 which is only 22 cents a bar!

All of these deals were found near the back past the Valentine's Day stuff. There were many more deals. I saw a 3pk of Clorox Toilet Cleaner for about $4 and 10 packs of Colgate toothbrushes for only $4.98 (Just to name a few)

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

More Updates

I have added several stores to the Webtastic Deals page. These are sites I believe are great for your "toolbox" so to speak. What I mean by that is they are great sites to have available in case they run a special or you see something you really can use. It's good to be signed up for these sites ahead of time so you can get alerts of great sales/daily deals etc.


I've made updates to the pages "What this is all about" and "Coupon Lingo" feel free to look them over and start getting familiarized as there will be much more to come.
