A little break from the blogs....

I want to thank everyone for visiting the site lately. I will be posting more after the wedding....we are on the down hill slide now with only 2 weeks to go. We have had a few things happen, it ends up that I am going to have to try and make my own cake, and I had already planned to do my own flowers. I hope to talk you all soon!!! Until then, keep up the deal finding, shopping for free, and keep us in your prayers as we begin our new life together! Thanks....Misty

Walgreen's Deals, my new venture

Since I feel like I have CVS under control, I am slowly working on Walgreens. This is one of the better deals that I have worked, but the main thing is.....this is stuff we ACTUALLY use and need to stock up on. Tim is very set on a couple of products....soap and deodorant. His brands/scents were on sale this week at walgreens so I grabbed them up.
Here is the breakdown: Total retail $31.94 plus tax; paid $11.60 OOP!
True North Crisp: On sale for $3.00, used $1 mq, got $3 RR (free) x2
Hershey's Kisses: On sale 2 for $5, used $1 mq, got $1 RR
Dial Soap: On sale B1G1, used $3.00 RR
Degree Deodorant: used walgreen q $1.99 ea, $1.00 mq, used $3 RR
Still have $1.00 RR which I will use to roll into next weeks deals if I see any worth working. I am at a point right now to only getting what we need/use till the wedding is over. Will keep you posted on the deals. I have learned today that BLOOM in greenvile is doing Triple Coupons!! Going to head out that way today! Many Blessings to all!

CVS Deal #2, Sweet Alabama!

It never fails, someone in Easley always beats me to the great deals at CVS, especially the ones that offer ECB's back. When we were in Alabama this weekend visiting family and doing Bridal Portraits, I asked for a quick stop at CVS in Troy, Alabama. I got paid to shop this time!

The Schick Quattro's are on sale this week B1G1, and they were $9.99. The Schick ST3 disposables were on sale for $6.99 with $4 ECB's. I used 2 $4/1 Schick coupons, 1 $3 coupon on ST3's. $4.79 ECB's and paid $2. 55 out of pocket. Then I received $4 ECB's after the transaction and came home Monday and used that on milk. So, all in all, they paid me $1.50 to shop!

I always say that I need retail therapy, well, with deals like this I might actually be able to afford to have weekly trips! I hope you find deals like this, share them with me on comments!

CVS Deal **Lucky Charm**

This is just one of the deals that I have to tell you about! Tuesday, I went to CVS because they have the individual servings of GM cereal on sale for $1. Well, you know those coupons that say save $1 on 2, for the most part they do not specify a size. Soooo, guess what, you can use them on these single servings to score some great deals. These are a great snack at work or breakfast on the go and sometimes just plain fun for the kids! I also used a couple of ¢ off coupons and got all four of these cereals for 90¢! How is that for 4 servings! More to come!
