Target Toy Coupons

If you haven't already gotten the target catalog in the mail with all the awesome toy coupons you can go to www. to print them. Click on Target Coupons. Lots of stores accept competitors coupons so you may be able to use these at other places if you find them on sale. It's worth asking. You can print multiples here as well! There are some very high value coupons in there. One example is $20 off the Little People Airport. Check it out!

Several Toy Coupons

Go to to print several toy coupons. A few are Mr. Potato Head, Mr. Potato Head Spud Buds, Musical Sit and Spin, and My Little Pony. These are high value coupons. I saved $10 on a sit and spin the other day for a gift. Check out the coupons! Combined with sales you can save a ton.

Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head are on sale Friday night and Saturday morning at Toys R Us for 3.99. Use the coupon on to save $2 and get them for $1.99 each! Regular price is $7.99. You can print at least 2 of these. My kids love their potato heads! This would be a great Christmas gift!

I'm Back!

After a 2 month absence I am posting again! I will just say that this blog isn't the only thing that has been on the backburner for the last couple of months.

Milky Way Misery

Tip of the day: Just because something is free doesn't mean you have to get it! I bought a Milky Way and a Twix at Walgreens today because I got them free with coupons. I ate about 3/4 of the Milky Way while I was out running errands and felt like I was gonna puke. Apparently I can't stomach a Milky Way like I used to be able to. Plus I got an additional 200 calories which is never good. Lesson learned. Now I have to go eat the Twix (just kidding!).

They triple coupons up to .99 with a limit of 20 triples per visit. However, you can use more than 20 coupons if the others are worth $1 or more (I used at least 30). Kroger is also having a Mega Sale this week! You buy 10 participating items which are already on sale for great prices and get $5 off instantly at checkout. You can do as many of these groupings as you like. I did 3 last night and got 3 $5 discounts. I also had coupons for a lot of the items that were on sale. I got several things for free or less than $1. With my sales, $5 bonuses and triple coupons I saved $117.20. I spent $86.59. It would have been less if I would have remembered to use that pesky free lunch meat coupon! Oh well, I'll use it later. Good luck getting some great deals!

Cheap Huggies Diapers and Pulls Ups at CVS

This week at CVS you can get Jumbo packs of Huggies diapers or Pull Ups 2 for $18. Then you get $4 in Extra Bucks(EBs) to use towards your next purchase. Combine coupons with these and you've got a sweet deal. I got 2 packs of Pull Ups and used a $2 off coupon for one and a $1.50 off coupon for the other. Oh, and one of my coupons was for Huggies diapers so apparently you can use the diaper coupons on Pull Ups, but not the other way around. So my final cost was:

$18-3.50 (coupons)-$4(EBS)= $10.50 for 2 or $5.25 per pack!

Better than Free Dental Products at Walgreens

At Walgreens this week the Listerine mouthwash, Reach Toothbrushes and Reach Dental Floss are on sale 3 for $9. In addition you get $6 back in register rewards(RR) to use on your next purchase. If you clip the Sunday coupons there was one for $5 off 3 of these products so you can get all 3 for $4 and get a $6 reward coupon to be used later. You could even use it the same day if you want. There is also a deal with Colgate Enamel Strength Toothpaste. It is $2.99 and you get a RR for $2.99. You can use one of the many colgate coupons from recent papers and get it for better than free with RRs.

Another Ben & Jerry's Deal (Why do they hate me?)

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. We have been crazy busy enjoying this summer. Well, I didn' think it would get any better than $1.50 for Ben & Jerry's at Target, but Publix has outdone them. Through Tuesday B & J are buy one get one free at Publix (This also applies to Starbucks ice cream for those of you who don't need a defibrulator after having coffee!). There is also a coupon in one of the booklets by the entrance to get $1.00 off two B &J. If you notice that I've put on a few pounds in a few weeks you'll know why. I also have allergies (hence a sore throat) giving me the perfect excuse to eat ice cream regularly! So.....
2 Ben and Jerry's - $7.58 (regular price)
-$3.79 for BOGO
-$1.00 for coupon
=$2.79 for 2
= $1.40/$1.39 a piece!

Free Sundiwear Sunscreen Monitoring Stickers

Click here to get a free sample of sundiwear stickers. They let you know when to re-apply sunscreen. I ordered mine a few days ago and can't wait to see if they work. My friend Marie was just telling me about something like this the other day. I figure they will be great to put on the kids, but could be useful for adults as well. Happy swimming!!!

Big Savings at Target this Week!

I made a trip to Target yesterday and got some great deals so I thought I would share some of them with you. They are running several promotions where you buy certain products and get others for free.

1. Buy 2 bags of Archer Farms chips (on sale for $2.33) and get a jar of Archer Farms salsa free. You can print out coupons for $1 off Archer Farms chips at . Just click on coupons and target coupon generator. You can print 2 of these.

2 bags of chips and salsa = 6.99 (sale price)
-$2.33 for free salsa = $4.66
-$2.00 for 2 coupons = $2.66 for 2 bags of chips and salsa!

2. My good friends Ben and Jerry are on sale this week! Check this out! They are $2.50 a piece, but if you buy 5 you get a $5 Target gift card so it's like you paid $1.50 a piece. Also included in this deal is Breyers Ice Cream 1.5 Quarts and Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches. I got 4 Ben and Jerry's and a Skinny Cow. Isn't that a contradiction???

3. Buy Skippy peanut butter and Welch's squeezable grape jelly (both on sale for $1.79) and get a free loaf of Arnold bread (worth $2.99). This is great bread. All natural and yummy. You can also buy the skippy natural peanut butter. I know the jelly isn't all natural, but cut me some slack. It's stinkin' cheap. You get peanut butter, jelly, and bread for a whopping $3.58.

4. The pull ups deal I mentioned in an earlier post is going on, but is also good for Huggies diapers. Check out my previous post for info on this, but I basically got 3 packages of Pull Ups for $13.97.

5. For all you mommies or teachers out there, the dollar spot at our Target had all kinds of fun kids craft things this week. There were kids scissors, foam kits to make animals, pom poms, giggle eyes, stamps, stickers, pipe cleaners, foam shapes and more! I got tons of craft stuff to do with the kids this summer for $20. It will be well worth it. They love this stuff and it will keep them busy with something creative rather than just watching TV or something. Check your Target to see if they have this stuff. I was at the West Nashville store.

Tuesday, June 9, 2009 Deal

Save 80% at with the code PRESENT. This means you get a $25 gift card for $2. Check out the restaurants in your area.

Pull Ups Coupon and Target Deal

There is a new link to a coupon for $3 off of Huggies Pull Ups. You can print 2 of these per computer you print from. Here is the link:

Word is on several websites that Target will be running a deal starting on Sunday 6/14 where Pull Ups will be on sale for $8.99 AND you will get a $5 Target gift card if you buy 3 packs. So, here's how I see this going down:

3 packs of Pull Ups = 26.97

3 $3 off coupons = $17.97

1 $5 gift card = $12.97

3 packs of Pull Ups for $12.97!!! That's $4.32 per pack! Can I get a what what?!

Pardon my enthusiasm, but I have been buying Pull Ups for over a year for my son who may still have to sleep in them in college:) and I am about to start buying them for my daughter also! Here's to pee-free sheets!

Shopping Smart at Publix

Many of you may take the stance I used to take that "Publix is for the rich." I no longer believe that. While a lot of things are more expensive at Publix I have found that many items I purchase are cheaper at Publix than Kroger. My favorite thing about Publix is the buy one get one free deals. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY TWO TO GET THE DEAL. They just ring up at half price. This may be regional because in Orlando they actually made me buy two, but here in Tennessee I think you are safe. I love to combine the BOGO deal with coupons. For example, a couple of weeks ago they had the wheat thins and triscuits BOGO. I had several coupons to save $1 off a box of wheat thins or triscuits that I printed off of and So the regular price of the crackers was $2.69 and I got them for $.35 per box! I often get cereal for under a dollar by doing this. It is a great way to save money if you just buy what is BOGO (assuming it is something you like of course). Also you can subscribe to 4 different clubs/magazines with coupons at Publix for free. Just go to and click on "Clubs and Programs". There is the Baby Club if you are expecting or have a child under 2. I LOVED the Baby Club with both of my kids. I got tons of great coupons. Then there is the Preschool Pals club. I don't know that I've gotten any coupons with this one, but you get emails with fun ideas and some fun things in the mail. You can also subscribe to the Publix Greenwise Market Magazine or the Publix Family Style Magazine which both have valuable coupons in them. Hope this helps. I certainly don't buy everything at Publix, but I take advantage of their sales. I also think their produce is superior so I love to get fruits and veggies on sale there. Don't forget that on Sunday and Monday they have a penny item with a $10 purchase. It is hit or miss, but some weeks it is an item that is really useful for our family. Oh, and who can forget that Publix is where shopping is a pleasure! Happy Shopping!

All Natural Taco Seasoning

I have to give my sister the credit for this one. She gave me this recipe. It is so much better than any storebought taco seasoning I have had. There are a lot of ingredients, but this lasted me about 5 recipes before I needed to make more. I think it is very economical by the time you use all of the ingredients. Plus, there is the added bonus of knowing there is no junk in it. Enjoy!
4 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp onion powder
2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp arrowroot powder
2 tbsp ground cumin
4 tsp sea salt
4 tsp paprika
4 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
Use 1/4 cup of seasoning for 1 lb of ground beef or ground turkey.

Additional Birthday Deals

Meghan sent me this link for birthday treats! Thanks! Happy Birthday to everyone! I am having so much fun with this link.

Just In Case Anyone Cares

Here we go. I have been finding all kinds of deals lately. I am a bargain shopper and a coupon clipper. I get excited about good deals and have probably bored some of you with them in the past! I figured I will log them here, and you can look if you want. Then I will stop talking about it! I am gonna post good deals, recipes, and good ideas that I have come across. I am trying to live a more natural life so you can expect some natural recipes and coupons for "green" type products. I am always up for a deal so there will be many different kinds on here. This will be fun. Maybe I will at least have one reader. If I can help out a friend each day with one of these tips it will surely be worth my time. So let's get started!
