Randall's 72Hour Sale

Of course everyone pretty well knows that Randalls had a $30.00 gift card with any NEW or transferred prescription, so I did that paid $5.xx for my prescription and got my gift card .
Heres the damage:
12pk Coca Cola, Dr. Pepper products on sale 4/$7.99 Ok, that is less than $2.00 a 12pk that is awesome!
Then my hubby begged me for a shrimp dinner tonight, so I gave in and bought some raw shrimp, fried it tonight and thats what we had for supper. Used my gift card for all of it so
OOP $5.xx for my prescription
OOP for the shrimp and coleslaw and cokes $00 pd with gift card!

found some childrens books on clearance there too when I was leaving they were half off the lowest marked price, got a few of them for $1.00 each, used my gift card.


Kroger has been having their Mega Sale going on for 2 weeks now, I have done the Mega Deal about 7 times I think it is... lol I lost count... but overall I have said literally hundreds of dollars getting stuff for free and on top of that , I went down the cleaning aisle to get the Glade and lo and behold ALOT of their cleaning items were Clearanced! YIPPEE! so here is what I got, I got double pack of Lysol wipes they were closeout for 2.54 and with the 1.00/1 q made them 1.54 that is CHEAP for those they are expensive, they also had the Clorox wipes clearanced as well but I didnt have any coupons for those... bummer. But, they had Scrubbing Bubbles Flushable wipes clearanced to 1.19 used 1.00q made them .19cents!! and then they had Swiffer Duster refills clearanced to 1.59 used a .50q that doubled , then on some glass cleaner they had a savings booklet with 5 coupons in it for cleaning items like Easy Off, Mop n Glo, Pledge, and some others and some of their easy off was clearanced to 1.54 used the 1.00q off of the glass cleaner boom diggody dog... .54cents! I was really excited! lol and for those of you wondering NO I did not clean them out , there was still several on the shelf, except for the SoftScrub was clearanced to .79cents and then the .50q doubled made it FREE!
So yea, thats it in a nutshell! :D
So overall spendings on the Mega Sale for 2 weeks, $42.16
overall saved for the Mega Sale for 2 weeks, $231.xx , im not complaining! haha

Walgreens and CVS this week

So I went to Walgreens Sunday right after their sale started b/c I wanted some of the Reynolds wrap for free with the overage, and then a lil birdie had told me about the Sunsilk clearance with RR.

Soo.... here is what I did, I went in of course they were out of the Reynolds wrap so I got my raincheck and no Sunsilk at this wags so moved on to the next one 3 miles down the road ( My husband swears he cant figure out how they stay in business with one on every corner... lol oh well not my worry just as long as they have what I want and its free who cares how many wags there is??? Right?? )

Second wags SCORE!! I found the sunsilk, paid 2.98 OOP and got 10RR and on top of that they had Reynolds wrap in stock, so I got that too! YAY , so I still have my raincheck for later.
Then I had got back to my van and forgot about the Colgate being on sale with the RR, so went back in there to get that! So now I have a total of $16RR! YAY For me... lol

So, then I went to CVS, I wanted to do the Fusion deal , but what stupid person would put only 1 type of razor with ECB in their ad and on top of that its apparantely a NEW item and NONE of my CVS's have it yet! What is up with that! So , I got my Gillette Shampoo and left ! lol

Ok, been off for a week but I'm back

I havent been around this past week much due to 2 sick boys and bad weather... Boy it got COLD really fast, not used to that in Texas! lol
Will post some of my shopping trips later on...

Everyone have a great weekend!

P&G $120 Coupon Savings Book Interesting Info

So I sat down today and started cutting my extra inserts from P&G last Sunday. When it just hit me about the Spend $50 get $120 coupon savings book! Umm... yea! I use Proctor and Gamble products like crazy around here! So I dug up some old receipts well Decembers and January's and started adding! I am short $9.xx cents! I have to think of something to get before the 31st that is a good deal and I can make my $50. I called P&G to find out if you could use multiple receipts or if it all had to be on one and the lady told me that you can use multiples. Then I asked about Folgers coffee since I havent seen any q's in pg in awhile, she said that when the offer for the book came out that it is part of the rebate, but Folgers has been sold to another company so they will not put q's out for it anymore! I found that interesting! I just bought some Folgers at Walgreens this week since it was on sale and DH was almost out!

1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper( I didnt use this in mine)
1 package 10ounces frozen spinach, thawed and drained
2 boneless skinless chicken breast cooked and cut into 1 inch pieces ( I used 3 breasts)
1 can 4ounce sliced mushrooms drained
2 cups shredded swiss or cheddar cheese ( I used cheddar)

1/4 cup half n half
2 eggs slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare noodles according to package directions. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper, cook an stir 2 minutes or until onion is tender. Add spinach, chicken , mushrooms and cooked noodles , stir to combine.
3. Combine cheese, sour cream, half n half, eggs, and salt in medium bowl, blend it well.
4. Add cheese mixture to chicken mixture, stir to combine. Pur into 13x9 baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake, covered, 30 to 35 minutes or until heated through. Makes about 8 servings.

Gotta LOVE rebates!

Awhile back I submitted a rebate for a Bayer glucose meter, I think it was like in November and completely forgot about. What a surprise when I went and opened up my mailbox yesterday and $55.00 rebate check was sitting there! WHOO HOO! Couldn't come at a better time thats for sure! I am going to try and do as many rebates this year as I can! I am fixing to send in a $10.00 one for Bayer for the vitamins I bought earlier this week! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Time to get your Extra Care Bucks!

As I went into my part time job last night at CVS , I was suddenly reminded Hey this is January... guess what .... EXTRA BUCKS are OUT!! YAY! Even tho I didnt do so well with only $11.50, that was more than I had before! lol So if you havent got yours yet! Go get em! :)

FYI: In every CVS there should be a kiosk at the front of the store of close to the front where you can scan your CVS card and get your extra bucks to print that way you have them and dont have to buy something first in order to get them!

Everyone have a Terrific Thursday!

4- Ben and Jerry's pint ice cream 2/$6 - used 3.00 IP q's =FREE!

Total Savings- $43.00 (calculating my total savings by face value of my q's).

Starting my Blog!

Phew! Since I started couponing last year to an extreme extent. I would to start a blog to keep up with exactly what I was getting to what I was saving to what I am spending. (Did that make sense? lol)
I am hoping to have some followers and I am going to post each of my shopping trips along with some recipes that I come across that seem inviting. Look forward to a wonderful year in 2009!

Hugs and Savings to All.
