Add Some Bling to Your Life (and your blog)

This morning I was introduced to an exciting new website/company. It's called called
After browsing their site I discovered their Interchangeable Charm Necklaces, which seem like a more modern version of the charm bracelts we all wore in highschool. They also have really cute interchangeable beaded watches (the kinds you find at all the "specialty" shops for three times the price).
Another thing I love about this site is that it is designed for women like me who are not very fashion knowledgable. Their main site explains all about chunky jewelry and how to wear it (and not have it wear you). You can even host an online jewelry party, which is the best type of party to have (no cleaning, entertaining, buying appetizers...).

Check out Chunky Bling and let me know what you think.
I hope to receive a ring from their website and will be sure to update you when I get it, with pictures to show it off.


I am seriously considering going out to WinStar Casino today.

So far I have:

won a great prize pack from Deal Seeking Mom (another gift Sophie will LOVE - her birthay is almost completely taken care of and I haven't had to buy a thing).

bought a 10 dollar lottery ticket and won 50 dollars.

went to Petsmart with my 3.00 coupon for completing a survey and found Beggin' strips on sale for 3.00. I had a buy one get one free coupon, so I got two FREE bags of Beggin' strips!

found great deals at Kohl's today. Had 20.00 in Kohl's bucks to spend by today and found a great "hoodie" and two shirts for Sophie - and was really close to my mark, my total out of pocket was 2.20!

visited Wal-Mart and got (after coupons) three free packs of Schick razors (for our troops that our school adopted)and a free Scotch Lint Roller.

went to Walgreens this morning and was able to get a great deal on Venus Embrace Razors and Olay Body wash. The razors were on sale for 8.99 with 4.00 in Register Rewards (so it wasa 4.99). I had a coupon for free Olay body wash with any Venus razor purchase. I also had a 2.00 off any Venus razor. So for only 2.99 I was able to get the razors and the Olay Body wash (and I picked up the big 23 oz. one!)

So today is my lucky day!

CVS Deals this week (2/28-3/6)

Ready for a great week at CVS? First you will need to go to Wal-Mart (I know, sounds silly, but you do) and get the March issue of All You Magazine. Inside of the magazine is a 1.00 off Softsoap Nutri Serums body wash. CVS has this product on sale for 99cents after ECB's (Extra Care Bucks). It's 4.99, with 4.00 ECB's, so after the ECB's and the coupon, you will get it for FREE!

You can also get a great deal on Revlon cosmetics or tools. They are on sale Buy One Get One Free (prices 1.99 to 21.99). If you can find one of those 1.99 items, pick up 2 of them and combine it with these 1.00 off coupons. Don't worry, they are MANUFACTURER coupons, not Target. Just find the link to coupons and print out the Revlon coupons.

You can also get PowerBar Gel Blasts free after ECB's this week.

The milk at CVS is also on sale for 1.89 after 1.00 ECB (so 2.89, and get 1.00 back in ECB's). Unfortunately, I don't know what KIND of milk it is, and I am working on moving over to organic/hormone free milk.

Want to Go to Walgreens tomorrow?

I know I have been diligently trying to get some of you to check out Walgreens and CVS. So, is this the weekend? Look at the great deals below and let me know if you would like to meet and shop together. I will gladly meet you up at ERE and we can visit the Walgreens nearby and the CVS on the corner of Basswood and Beach (the one on North Tarrant isn't customer friendly).

Here are the Walgreens deals:
First go to and print out the 1.00 off coupons that are good on any Reach toothbrush or floss. You will use these to get two FREE toothbrushes (or floss) after coupons at Walgreens. They are on sale for 99 cents, so after the coupon you will pay ZERO. Don't like Reach toothbrushes? Donate them! But don't let this deal just slip by.

For the next deal to be "great" you will need to have the 2.00 off Crest Rinse from the newspaper. Actually, it's a GREAT deal if you have 3 of these coupons. I have 4.
They are on sale for 3.00 each, BUT when you buy 3 you will get 3.00 in Rapid Rewards (walgreens bucks), essentially making them 3 for 6.00. Take off 3 coupons for 2.00 each, and you've got three FREE bottles of Crest Whitening Rinse. That's a great deal!

There's also a great deal on a new Neutrogena product, Neutrogena Clinical. You can get the Clinical Eye or Night treatment for 29.99 AFTER 10.00 in Rapid Rewards (which means the price is 39.99 and you will get 10.00 back). You can combine this with the 15.00 rebate at AND use the 5.00 coupon found in this month's All You magazine (OR you can register at the Neutrogena Clinical site and print out a 5.00 coupon!). That means that you will only pay 9.99 after coupons and rebates!

You can also get a good deal on DayQuil or Nyquil. If you buy 4 Vicks Products for a total of 20.00 (they are 5.00 each), you will get 10.00 in Rapid Rewards, making your total 10.00 for all 4. You can combine this deal with coupons to make it better. I have 2 coupons for 2.00 off and several others for 1.00 off. So, if you have 4 of the 2.00 coupons, you would pay 2.00 for all 4 Vicks products (or 50 cents each). Since I have already done this deal once, and don't have 4 coupons left that are 2.00, I could get 6.00 off and pay only 1.00 per product (4.00 total). Not bad!

There is an AMAZING deal on Tylenol that I would LOVE to help you out with. I Have LOTS of 1.00 off coupons for Tylenol and Motrin. They are on sale for 1.49, so after the coupon you would only pay 49 cents! Even store brands can't beat that price! I have 14 coupons total for either Tylenol or Motrin - so PLEASE let me know if you want some!

I can also help you out with coupons if you use One A Day - They are on sale for 6.99 each. If you purchase two for 13.98, you will get 3.00 back in Rapid Rewards. So you can get 2 for 10.98. I have numerous 2.00 off coupons, which will take another 4.00 off, bringing your total down to 6.98 for two bottles of One A Day vitamins! I think that's a pretty good price.

Recycle Bank - Join today!

Have you heard of RecycleBank? It's a fantastic website/program that rewards you for doing good (i.e. recycling). You get 40 "points" for signing up, and if you sing up for Ebay's Green team you will earn an additional 50 "points". With these points you can receive quality Earth-Friendly items.
I just traded in 50 of my points for a free box of Kashi cereal. You can also get Seventh Generation dish soap for 50 points!

Right now, the program isn't merged with our Fort Worth recycling program, so we can't earn points for our curbside recycling (or if we can, I don't know how). But you can earn points for turning in old electronics. You can also sign up for the newsletter which sometimes contains promo codes that help you earn free points.

I strongly recommend you sign up for this program - both you and the Earth will be rewarded :)

Special Target Deal *Free Power Bar Energy Gel Blasts

At Target today, I noticed they have their PowerBar Energy Gel Blasts on sale for 99 cents. This is a reasonably good price, but can easily become a Freebie if you combine it with the 1.00 off coupon from the newspaper (SS 1/03/10). I was able to pick up 5 packages for free.
I also checked out the CVS "hidden" deal on the same item. If you buy the PowerBar Energy Gel Blasts at CVS this month, you will get 1.50 in ECB's (Extra Care Bucks). My CVS has them on "sale" for 1.59, so you would pay 9 cents after ECB's if you don't have the coupons, or you can turn this deal into a money maker if you have the 1.00 off coupon!
I haven't tried these yet, but with two guys in my life (my husband and 13 year old son) that love camping and hiking, I am sure they will be eaten quickly!

On a quick side note - I actually went to Target to get a good deal on Charmin. CVS has their Charmin Basic 12 double roll TP packs on sale for 4.99. Target will ad-match the deal, which means I could use both my 1.00 Charmin Target coupon and my 1.00 Charmin manufacturer coupon, which would mean 2.99 for 12 double rolls of tp. Unfortunately, Target only had the 18 packs.....and I am almost thinking they do things like that on purpose.

Won Over by Sprouts!

Browsing through their weekly ad, Sprouts has officially won me over.
Imagine - a place that sells quality, organic foods at "Wal-Mart" prices. Well, Sprouts says "imagine no more!"

Take these comparisons - Kroger has their boneless, skinless chicken breast on sale for a good price, around 1.90 per pound. But this is for "regular" chicken - with hormones and a history added to it.
Sprouts on the other hand, offers us Boneless, Skinless chicken breasts, fresh (never frozen) and hand plucked for only 1.97 - which is an amazing price ANYWHERE!

You can also find red bell peppers at just about any "Super Store" or grocery chain. They typically run about 1.50 for the colored varieties, and around 1.00 for green bell peppers.
Sprouts has their RED (yes the more expensive ones) on sale for 69 cents. That price is so low I'm going to research ways to cook them ahead or freeze them for the future.
Apples? Sprouts has theirs for 88cents a lb! I don't know of any grocery chain that can beat that this week.
You can even grab a gallon or two of milk while you are there without worrying about your pocketbook. Their organic is only 3.99! And I recently found out you CAN freeze milk! (Although I haven't tried it for myself)
Barbara's Cereals are also on sale for a good price of 2.99 (10-12 oz box). That's comparable to the cereals of Kellogg's, General Mills, or Post. (side note- I am still waiting on my free sample of this cereal and will let you know if it is "kid approved).
Sprouts also has some decent prices on their beef and pork this week. Their pork chops are a definite "buy" at only 1.99 lb (and remember these chops are all natural).
You can also get Newman's Own products at Sprouts. The second great thing about this company (the first being their quality ingredients) is that they offer coupons!
My daughter LOVES going to Sprouts. They have a great selection of "treats" - everything for chocolates to trail mixes and nuts. We always leave with a bag of something to munch on during the car ride home.

Why you should RUN (not walk) to KROGER

I just got back from Kroger and found a couple of NICE "hidden" deals.

First - our local Kroger (on Beach Street) has their women's Suave Deodorant on clearance for 77 cents. What makes this a "run now" deal is if you have any coupons for Suave Deodorant. I had seven (7) 50 cent off coupons for any Suave Deodorant. With Kroger's double/triple coupon policy, this means FREE deodorant.And guess what happened when I checked out? Instead of self adjusting the coupon, it gave the full 1.00 off - that's right! I actually ended up NEGATIVE and had to pick up a pack of gum.
I will check the web for any printables, but Suave usually doesn't have online coupons to print. If you have the coupons though, go get this deal!

Another "hidden" gem is that Right Guard deodorant is on sale for 1.00 - but here's the "downside". It's an unlisted deal, and our Kroger was out. Since it wasn't listed in the ad, they won't give rainchecks. So I will keep checking to see if they have any in stock.

Now is a great time to get some Jennie-O turkey and send it off quickly for the rebate. Do you have a Jennie-O coupon? In the paper a while back there were 1.00 any two packages/products of Jennie-O, so if you have those, it makes this deal even better (because rebates are based on the price BEFORE coupons).

Blistex is also on sale for 1.00 each. If you've been couponing for a while, you should have a Blistex coupon for 35 cents off. I was able to pick up four FREE Blistex lip balms!

Tennessee Pride gravy is on sale for 1.00. I tried this last time it was "free" after coupon, and it was pretty good. WAY better than I expected. It's great for a busy week day morning when Kenn (my husband) wants biscuts and gravy. Luckily I still had a 1.00 off coupon, so I picked up another free package of gravy.
(Side note - I do have a couple of 55 cent off coupons - if you want a good deal - not free but good.)

Kroger also has their chicken breasts on sale for 1.89 a lb. I stocked up!

I also took advantage of the Kelloggs deal. Buy 4 participating Kelloggs products for $10.00 and get 2 FREE gallons of milk (Springdale milk). You can go here to get a 1.00 off 3 boxes of cereal coupon to make this deal better. I searched for better coupons, but couldn't find any, although I do suggest to you that you do a search for your own before heading to the store. You can get Apple Jacks, Froot Loops, Rice Krispies, Special K bars, and more on this deal. So for 10.00 or less you can get for boxes of cereal and two gallons of milk!

Jennie-O Turkey Rebate ($5)

You can get a full price rebate (up to 5.00) from Jennie-O Turkey. Simply go here ( to sign up and print out your rebate.
Our family has switched over almost 100 percent to turkey. Our spaghetti, hamburbers, etc. are all made from Jennie-O turkey. Kroger usually has a good price on these products.

Hitting the Jackpot at Target and CVS!

This evening I was able to visit both Target and CVS with my lovely 10 year old daughter, Sophie. While browsing we were able to find some amazing deals! First, we headed to the light bulbs/home improvement section. Our Target finally had the GE Reveal single package lighbulbs in stock. What makes these wonderful is that they are FREE when you use the Target coupon (save 1.50) and the manufacturer coupon (save 1.00). So, I saved 2.50 on a 1.79 lightbulb! And luckily I had 2 Target coupons, so I was able to get two free lightbulbs.
We then headed over to the make-up section. I was ESTATIC to find the "Rimmel deal" that I had heard about on other blogs. For those of you who haven't heard of this deal - the current All You Magazine (Wal-Mart's own magazine filled with coupons) has a coupon for 3.00 off any Rimmel Mascara. Guess what? Target sells Rimmel mascara for 2.79! Because I purchased two All You Magazines, I was able to get two mascaras free!
Our third stop was to the "travel and trial size" area. Since I check here often, I wasn't expecting any surprising deals. Imagine my glee when I found Almay Eye Make Up remover pads for 1.49. Why was I smiling from ear to ear? Because I had SEVEN (yes 7!) coupons out of the newspaper for 2.00 off any Almay cosmetic product including the eye makeup remover (there was even a photo of this product on the coupon - I love that!). So I picked up seven of those.
We then veered our cart towards the baby care aisle. Callie, our 2 year old, needed Huggies Pull-Ups (the only ones with reclosable sides). I was able to get a package of those for 8.99 (minus my 2.00 manufacturer coupon)as well as pick up three Johnson and Johnson Buddies soaps for free! They are priced 97 cents and I had three 1.00 off coupons!
At this point I didn't think my trip could get any better - but there was one final deal left!
On a recent trip a coupon for 1.00 off any two General Mills cereals printed out at the register. It was a Target Store Coupon. I went down to cereals and was able to find two great GM cereals, Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch (both in throwback boxes!) for 2.50. I had printed out a manufacturer coupon for 1.00 off these cereals (and yes, I had two!), so that meant that I paid about a dollar per box!
I went to the register and let the cashier know I was using coupons (always polite to do) and that some would need to be adjusted to price match the item.
The strange thing is that she only did this on the Almay products. She gave me face value for all the other coupons. Which means that my grand total was......... less than 7.00 WITH TAX! Yes, essentially I paid for the Pull-Ups and got everything else for free!!!!

I then headed over to CVS for a quick stop to see if a rumored deal was true. Some people claimed that the large Huggies Wipes refill packs were ringing up for 2.50 each. It was true! I was able to get 8 package of Huggies Wipes refills for about 10.00! How? I combined this "too good to be true but is" deal with my CVS $5.00 off any purchase of 15.00 or more as well as 4.00 in ECB from last week.

So I was able to get everything in these pictures for less than 20.00!

Watching for the "Dirty Dozen" (and I don't mean the movie)

As my friends and family know, I love a good deal. And I must admint, organic foods tend to be pricier than their non-organic/non-certified counterparts. Therefore, I have not purchased organic foods in the past UNLESS they were on sale for a price that was as good or better than the "regular" foods.
After some research though (and by research,I mean looking at blogs like Centsible Sawyer)I have realized that there are some foods worth paying extra for because of what you AREN'T getting.

Here is the list of the Dirty Dozen fruits and veggies you should always buy organic. (they are on the list because they are treated with pesticides the most/most often and/or their skins/coverings do not protect the inner fruit from contamination.

1. Peach
2. Apple
3. Bell pepper
4. Celery
5. Nectarine
6. Strawberries
7. Cherries
8. Kale ** some lists include spinach instead of kale/lettuce
9. Lettuce
10. Grapes (imported)
11. Carrot
12. Pear
**some lists also include potatoes

You should only consume certified organic versions of these foods (or grow your own/know the farmer). By doing so, you can reduce your pesticide intake by 90 percent.

The Budget-Conscious should not fear though.Not all items need to be organic. There are the "Clean Fifteen" - i.e. fifteen fruits and veggies that can be consumed without fear of over-contamination from pesticides.
1. Onion
2. Avocado
3. Sweet corn
4. Pineapple
5. Mango
6. Asparagus
7. Sweet peas
8. Kiwi
9. Cabbage
10. Eggplant
11. Papaya
12. Watermelon
13. Broccoli
14. Tomato
15. Sweet potato
Many lists also have bananas on the "clean" list (some do not have cabbage and/or watermelon)

You can visit the EWG (Environmental Working Group) website and download a handy shopper's guide. And yes -There IS an APP for that :)

Great Weight Watchers Smart Ones Coupon

Looking through my FREE Weight Watchers Magazine (that's right, the subscription was FREE), I noticed an add for Weight Watchers Smart Ones entrees. At the bottom it mentions Saving $4.00 when you go to
If you go to you can get a coupon for 1.00 off 5 Smart Ones - but the $4.00 off 10 Smart Ones is a much better deal!
I was able to print this coupon twice.

Today's Mail - Worth the Wait!

It was hard, painful, and downright wrong to make me wait two days for mail. Since Monday was President's Day (even though school was in session...)which is a National Holiday, there was no mail delivery. Which meant I had to wait until Tuesday for mail.
In the mailbox today I received:
1 reusable shopping bag for Frozen Groceries courtesy of Skinny Cow, Nestle Drumsticks, and Haagen-Dazs.
Beech Nut coupons for 2 FREE jars and a free cereal (total value 3.50)
Two seperate packages from Kotex including TWO coupons for 1.00 off any Kotex product.
Free Sample of Kleenex from Costco.
Rouge Magazine - with the following coupons on the back.
1.00 off any Olay Body Wash, 2.00 off any Natural Instincts Product, 1.00 off any Zest, Ivory, or SafeGuard Product OR Old Spice or Gillette Body wash, 1.00 off Perfect 10, 1.00 off Secret Clinical (not trial size), 1.00 off any two Head and Shoulders, Free Zest bar with any Venus Embrace Razor, 1.00 of Olay Skin Care.
Vegetarian Starter Kit - I was hoping for coupons, but there weren't any :(
Forbes magazine
Saveur magazine

Caress Evenly Gorgeous - A product worth PAYING for

Yes - you read the title correctly - there are things out there that I think are worth spending money on. I know that I can (and did yesterday) find free body wash products. And most (if no all) do the job.
This product, Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating body wash is amazing. The scent is divine, and is called Burnt Brown Sugar. The body wash itself lives up to the promises on the bottle!
I know you are wondering how I found this fabulous product. Easy answer: was giving away free samples a while ago and I got one in the mail. I also got another free sample in the mail last week from Vive Major.
Those samples have me hooked! The kids can use the other body wash, but for me, I am indulging myself with Caress! The price (before coupons) is between 5.00 and 8.00 for an 18 oz. bottle.

I'm almost tempted to dry the body bar/soap in the same scent!

Finding Some Freebies at Wal-Mart! (or Why I get 6 newspapers a week)

I went to Wal-Mart this evening under the guise of needing some hair color (I really DID need this, which you know if you have seen my hair lately - I didn't realize I had that much gray hair!!).
I also went to see exactly what they had available in travel size that would end up free after coupons. I found a couple of GREAT deals.

First I found Old Spice Body Wash (1.7 oz) for 97 cents. The newspaper had coupons a while back for 1.00 off any Old Spice Deodorant or Body Wash that was 1.7 oz or larger. So I picked up six (since I had six coupons).

Then I looked and found Dove shampoo and conditioner. The larger bottles were 1.47 and the smaller blue bottles were 97 cents. I had 7 coupons for any Dove Shampoo or condition (any size - I LOVE coupons that don't exclude trial sizes). The coupons are 1.50 off! - So, if you have these and by tht little ones, you make 53 cents. I bought the bigger ones and a couple of little ones.

I also found a great deal on cat food. The Iams Premium Cat food for seniors (our Sara is over 13 years old) is sold for 6.97 a bag. I had 7 coupons for 5.00 off any bag. So for 1.97 a bag I was able to get some quality cat food for our Sara.

Note: My Wal-Mart does not "adjust" coupons, which means they GIVE me the value off stated, even if the product is cheaper. I LOVE this.
In all:

6 Old Spice Body washes at 97 cents minus 1.00 each = 18 cents OVER
4 Dove Shampoo/Condition (larger travel size) at 1.47 minus 1.50 = 12 cents OVER
3 Dove Conditions (smaller travel size) at 97 cents minus 1.50 = 1.59 OVER

So, I got the above FREE, plus I applied the 1.89 to the cat food :)

CVS Shopping this week

Starting today, CVS has some amazing deals going on. It's a MONEY MAKER WEEK!
Here are the "money maker" deals that I got -

1. Crest Pro Health Enamel Rinse - on sale for 3.50, with 3.50 ECB (Extra Care Bucks) back. This means that the item is essentially free! The limit on this deal is 2, which makes it a GREAT deal. Want to make it even better? Combine it with the coupons from the newspaper that are 2.00 off one Crest Rinse and you've got a 4.00 money maker.

2. Aussie shampoo/products/hairspray- on sale this week for 2.99 with 2.00 ECB back. That makes it only 99 cents - but it gets better! This Sunday's paper (2/14) has coupons on Aussie products - 1.00 off any product. So that makes it free!

**Here's how I did this "deal"
I had 5.00 in ECB from last week's Nivea deal (buy 10.00 get 5.00 back, and I had coupons of course, which made the deal better).
I got two Crest Pro Health Enamel Rinses and one Aussie Shampoo. Before coupons it was 9.99 - after coupons my total was 4.99. I gave them my 5.00 ECB (let 'em keep the penny) - AND got back 9 dollars in ECBs!!!!! That's right! I went from 5 ECBs to 9 ECBs AND got 3 great items!!!!!

3. This next one is "special" - I had a CVS coupon for 3.00 off any Glade Fragrance Collection - it came out of the CVS scanning machines inside the store (you scan your card and get extra coupons instantly). This week CVS has their Glade products on sale - buy $12 worth of Glade and get 4 ECBs. I had 2 coupons that were 3.00 off any Glade Fragrance Collection, I motion Starter kit. I combined that with the 3.00 CVS coupon, and it automatically took 9.00 off! So I started at 12.00 for the Fragrance Reeds and I Motion Starter Kit, and then it went down to 3.00. I paid the 3.00 and got 4.00 in ECBs back! I made a 1.00 off this deal!!!

4. This next deal is a mail in rebate and can be done anywhere that sells Olay products. You can probably get a better deal than I did, but I was already at CVS and went with it. Olay has a rebate right now offering 15.00 back when you buy any 3 Olay products (facial, lotion, soap, body wash...). CVS has their Olay Reginerist Facial Cleanser on sale for 6.99. I had 3 coupons for 3.00 any one Reginerist product. So my total before coupons was 20.97, and after coupons it was 11.97. I will then send this in for the 15.00 rebate check! So I will make 3.03 - oh happy day!

In all, I was able to "make" 8.03 cents this week at CVS AND get 3 Olay facial cleaners, 2 Glade products, 2 Crest Pro Health Rinses, and 1 Aussie Shampoo!!!

What does your week look like at CVS?

***Special note to my close by friends - I do have "extra" coupons and will GLADLY walk you through your first CVS experience or share my coupons with you if you need them!!!!

Free Cat and Dog Food!

I must say that I have a "love/hate" relationship with Petsmart. I dislike strongly that they sell live animals (namely dogs and rodents). I do not agree with their stance on this and have a hard time supporting any store that sells animals when so many already need homes. They also do not ensure that the future owners know enough about their "purchase".

BUT - today I am liking them. I was able to go in and use 8 coupons with NO problem and my total was 0.00 and it didn't take a manager, no one glared at me, and the cashier was friendly the entire time.

Eubakenuba sent me a 10.00 off coupon for their puppy food. It was on sale for 9.99, so I grabbed a bag.

I also had 7 coupons for Purina cat food (free 6 oz. bag). I got 7 bags!

The picture shows the bags of cat food. I gave the dog food to one of the local rescue/adoption organizations, since our dogs are not puppies.

I am thrilled!!!!

Petsmart gets an A plus today on service!

Snow Day

By Friday afternoon, our area received a record breaking snow fall. Over a foot of now in Fort Worth, Texas!
The girls loved playing in it. I made a snowman with Sophie. Kenn shoveled off the sidewalk and then got the car ready for us to go eat breakfast together (since both school and work was called off). We went to eat at Denny's and then came home and enjoyed the snow some more.
About 24 hours later, it's 47 degrees outside and melting fast. Now we have rivers of water and lots of mud. Numerous snowmen in the community have lost their heads. I think that because we so rarely get this amount of snow, most of us don't know how to properly adhere a snowman head onto the body.

Here are some pictures of our Texas Blizzard :)
