I AM THANKFUL!

I have been so blessed thru all these awesome shopping deals to have the greatest cashiers!
Thank you Jesus!
It really helps the trip to be even more worthwhile and I've made some new friends (maybe I'll see them on here!)
I know I just stop and talk to anyone in the store (this probably drives my hubby crazy) but I just can't help not passing on good deals to help others save money! Besides they have shared deals with me too!

I feel truly blessed to meet new people this way and want to thank God for every opportunity He has given me to do so! He has been so good to me and with such bountiful blessings I cannot help but pass them on!

So again - with the Thanksgiving season approaching - take a moment to share what you are thankful for!
You're welcome leave your comment here too!

More great coupons to print!

After you print it once - don't forget to click your back button 3 times to print it again!

Toaster Strudels - get $1 off any ONE!

FREE FOOD if you have a MEIJER (WORTH THE DRIVE!) and other HOT DEALS!

Ok are you folks ready? On Meijer's site they have a thing called the MEALBOX - and on mealbox there are several coupon offers for Meijer coupons - you choose the ones you want and then add them to your shopping list and then print the list - and the BEST way is to SEND the list to your email first that way you have them all and can copy and past them on a document with 8 of the same on a page.

Here's the scoop for this week at least the sale prices (the coupons are good til NOV 5th)
Jello is on sale for 3 for $$1.50 - give the $1.50 mealbox jello coupon = FREE PLUS you also will receive a $2 ONYO catalina slip!

also - buy 4 boxes of Velveeta shells and cheese - give two of the $2 off any 2 Velveeta mealbox coupons = cheap plus then give the $2 that you earned from the last order!


This coupon is NOT on the site - but if you want it - just email me - Taco Bell Salsa is on sale for $$1.48 - buy 3 and give three of the $1.50 mealbox taco bell salsa coupons = FREE


Here's what I did - OH and I did it at the self checkout with no probs -the ladies there helped me enter the $2 ONYO catalina coupons but other then that NO PROBLEMS!


10 transactions:
3 jello x $0.50 each= $1.50- $1.50 Mealbox coupon= $0.00 OOP and each time got a $2.00 catalina - so FREE PLUS PROFIT!

2 transactions:
4 Velveeta shells and Cheese = $6.67- (2) $2.00 off Mealbox coupons= $2.67- $2.00catalina= $0.67 OOP (out of pocket) + $2.00 catalina

1 transaction:
7 Taco Bell Salsa @ $1.48 each - (7) $1.50 Mealbox coupons= $0.14 overage
4 Velveeta Shells and Cheese= 6.67- (2) $2.00 Mealbox coupons
Total $2.53- $2.00 catalina= $0.53 OOP plus you get a $2.00 catalina

1 transaction:
1 Taco Bell Salsa = $1.48- $1.50 Mealbox coupon= $0.02 overage
3 Jello = $1.50-$1.50 mealbox coupon= $0.02 overage plus $2.00 catalina

My Total OOP was $1.85 Plus I got all the Cats!!!!
FYI the BISTRO flavored mac and cheese does not work for the cat.

I am definitely going back for more each day this week! What an awesome deal!





Here's a Money maker:
Glade Scented Oils (not the gels or candles - get the plug in oils) are around $4.50 and sometimes under (this also worked at Jewel and Kmart) - use a $2 blinkie coupon (the coupon showed the glade candles, but worked fine for me) and get them cheaper and then they also spit out a $4 ONYO catalina - ONLY the scented oils and the ESSENTIAL OILS DO NOT WORK nor do the refills - the Hawaiian Breeze is the one that I bought and worked fine!
I made at least $2 PROFIT on each one I did - I bought about 20 :)
I hope they order more - I'll have to double check how long this goes til!
This works at Jewel (not sure about Dominicks or other's working yet)- one per receipt but you can go to other registers or self checkout registers to do more.
At Kmart - you can do all you want in one transaction - but again only the Hawaiian Breeze worked. Kmart also had it where if you spend $20 in the new holiday Glade items you get $5 ONYO catalina.
Target this week has buy 4 of the holiday Glade (I got 4 of the scented oil refills that had a free warmer in it and used 2 BOGO coupons and two $2 off coupons) = 4 for $10 minus $9 in coupons plus earned $5 Gift card for buying 4 - LOVE IT!



Meijer/Kellogg's catalina:  Buy select Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats at Meijer between 10/10 and 11/2 and get coupon ONYO. Buy two and get $1, buy 3 and get $3. Flavors include Blueberry Muffin, Strawberry delight, Maple & Brown Sugar, Vanilla Creme, and Cinnamon Streusel.
I know there are coupons out there too - I had two $1 off each box coupons from the All You magazine (tons of coupons in that!).  This deal also worked at Kmart!


Another Target deal - go to the left side of my blog and click on Target Coupon Generator - there is a Target coupon for $1 off ANY Lipton Tea - You can use this for the 16ct large family size tea bags which are only $1.09 each or you can also use it on the Lipton Tea to Go at the checkout lanes (3 or 4 inside) that are 97cents and get those for free!   NO LIMIT! I do print these in BLACK & WHITE - they scan at the store better plus you save ink!

How to get the cheap diapers at Walgreens!

If you can get your hands on the $50 coupon savings book from the pharmacy. It's a pamphlet they reward you with, if you listen to the spiel about the W card. Go to the pharmacy and ask, and keep asking until you are successful. (No, you don't have to join to get it, so if they tell you that, that's wrong.*) Then, when it comes time to use the $2 diaper coupon, DON'T cut it out. Present the pamphlet folded with the diaper coupon showing. Hand it toward the cashier so he/she can scan it. They don't actually need the paper coupon. If they insist on taking it, there's not much you can do, but most will let you keep it. Here is the diaper deal that starts next week (Nov 2):
Walgreens brand jumbo diapers $8.99 and B1G1F.
- $2 rx coupon takes $4 off
- .90 for W card members = 2/$4.09
* If you get any resistance at the pharmacy about the $50 pamphlet, print off this page from their website which clearly says "$50 in coupons just for asking your pharmacist how much you can save". In fact, print it off just in case, so you don't waste a trip. If they tell you they don't have any (they do, probably in a box in the back room), take out your cell phone on the spot and call their customer service number 1-877-250-5823, and tell them that you'd like one mailed to you because the store in MargaritaVille doesn't have any and needs a supply. Seriously, I bet they suddenly remember where to look for them.
If you plan to really stock up, then it is worth it to get the W card. That costs $20 a year, but you get back 10% of all Walgreens brand purchases, including the purchase of Walgreens gift cards. It's pretty easy to start making a profit on the W card. Save your receipts from the diaper purchases next week, then enter them on-line after you get your actual Wcard in the mail, for your 10% bonus.
This diaper deal will get even better if (big IF) there is a $5/$20 coupon the weekend of Nov 7-8. If that is the case, you'll need to remember that the $2 pharmacy coupon counts against your total to reach the $20 threshold. You'd have to buy 8 packs for $36 + tiny filler,
- $16 (8x$2 pharmacy c/o)
- $5/$20 coupon (if it exists)
- $3.60 for W card members
Final price 8/$11.40
Let's cross our fingers for a $5/$20 coupon that weekend.
If you think your Walgreens will be wiped out of the diapers in the size(s) you need, you can order ahead. You don't need to tell them you know there will be a sale. If you're questioned, you could say, I'm hoping for a sale and let it go at that. You can talk to a manager and ask for a case or however many you want. Tell them you'll pick them up on Nov 7 (so you can use the $5/$20 coupon if there is one).
