STOP SB560!!!!

If you are in WISCONSIN, you need to know about SB 560!! SB 560 bans advertisers in the state of Wisconsin in supplying rebates! Yeap! You read that right! NO MORE REBATES!!
 No more Menards rebates, Dove Rebates, or any other rebates!!!

Please go to http://www.wmc.org/governmentaffairs/display.cfm?ID=2280 and to http://www.wrn.com/2010/03/bill-limits-the-use-of-mail-in-rebates/ to get more information.

Tomorrow it is suppose to go to committee!! Meaning that they will vote on sending it to the full Sentate!! PLEASE contact your Senator and the Senators on the list from this committee and KILL THIS BILL!!!  The author of this bill feels that the consumers are to stupid to read the fine print so they want to stop rebates all together!!!

I have called ALL the committee members. Here is what I know so far:

Senator Robert Wirch, D-Kenosha, chairman (608) 267-8979 - Won't tell me

Senator Jeff Plale, D-South Milwaukee (608) 266-7505  - AGAINST! ( YEAH!!!)

Senator Jim Holperin, D-Conover (608) 266-2509  - Hasn't made a decision, wants it to hold the bill for further review

Senator Randy Hopper, R-Fond du Lac (608) 266-5300 - AGAINST!! (YEAH!!!)

Senator Mary Lazich, R-New Berlin (608) 266-5400 - Won't tell me, said that she would email or call me back.

Senator John Lehman, D-Racine, lead author (608) 266-1832  - WON"T ANSWER HIS PHONE!!!! He is the AUTHOR of this bill!!!

Walgreens Run and I bought our state park pass!

Well, I am on spring break this week so I am busy doing some spring cleaning and getting ready for warmer weather!

First stop, I went and bought our State Park Sticker Pass. For $25.00 the first car and $12.50 the second car, this allows us to hike, swim, got to concerts, play at all the state park campgrounds, and go to the trout pond all summer. :) It's a great deal!
Second, Stopped at Walgreens because I discovered we have no eggs to dye for easter!!
First Transaction:
Scrubbing Bubbles Power Sprayer $7.99, used $5.00 off coupon and I got a $2.00 RR back!
Dove Conditioner, $4.00, used a $1.50 coupon and I got a $4.00 RR back!
Total after coupons: $6.15 cents and I got $6.00 in RR's.

Second Transaction:
4 dozen eggs ( the advertisment said $1.29, but they were marked .99 cents!)
Used the $2.00 RR from first transaction

Other frugal notes......

So much as been happening!!

First of all, my car broke down! Whew, I am glad we have an emergency fund! This just happened after our dryer broke down last month. Thankfully, we are not going into debt to get this taken care of!!

Second, I have gotten my Kashi Freebie and a few other freebies in the mail. I also have a check for $25.00 coming from the now defunct Shoppers Hotline.

Third, Picked up a sled, 2 milk creates and some coupons recently in a curb side shopping trip. :) With Spring almost here, we will be doing more curb side shopping trips.

Also, it's time to renew my newspaper subscription. They called tonight asking if I was going to renew. I told them that since Red Plum has pulled out of their paper, it's not worth it for me to pay $1.25 per Sunday Paper for just the Smart Source inserts. The guy said he agreed and offered me the paper at .70 cents a copy on Sundays. I ordered for one year. :) Beats paying $2.00 at the gas station and it's delievered. :)

Overall, we have been trying to stay frugal and keep our "baby steps" going. We are living off what I have recently bought and our stockpile. We put 2 of my husband's unemployement checks into savings.  We have been using our Family Membership to the museums. We have been to 3 museums, getting admission free and making it a learning experience for the kids. I have used HOT PRINTS to get free books made of the kids museum trips. So, there is our free souvenir!! :)  We are planning another museum trip soon. Our family membership gets us in to over 350 museums world wide. ( See my post about the good deal we got on the family membership)

We stopped at one rummage sale ( YEAH They are starting) and we picked up a girl's mountain bike for $20.00. It's in good shape and that means when my daughter grows out of her bike, she is ready with a larger bike.

I will try to keep up on here with freebies and deals I find. I have to get around to posting the great Walgreens deals this week...and  maybe get over there myself..LOL

Stay Frugal!!!

Great Shopping Days, good deals...and I started Christmas shopping???

The last 2 days I have been shopping. Whew!

Yesterday, Stopped at Target ( near my work) bought 2 Monopoly games and 2 Connect 4 Games. I used 2 $5.00 off Monopoly coupons and 2 $4.00 off Connect 4 coupons. Out of pocket after coupons: $11.54.  $2.88 per game!!

Also, yesterday, I sent my husband over to Walmart ( near my home) to price match and use the coupons. The cashier refused to do it and so he asked for the Store Manager. The manager in charge also refused to allow it. She said you could have the price match OR the coupons, but not both because you will be ripping us off. My husband asked for a store manager and they refused to call him up. My husband walked out, not happy.

So, I called Walmart corporate. I reviewed the coupon policy I had with the woman on the phone. She agreed that we should have been able to do it and that she would contact the store manager. Never did my husband or I get angry, but we did feel we needed to point out the bad customer service. The lady on the phone was extremely professional and told me we would hear from the store manager.

Fast Forward to today.
Store Manager called our home. He didn't really apologize, just told my husband that yes, they will honor it just bring in the coupons and the ad. So, I went back this evening and got 2 more Monopoly Games and 2 Connect 4 Games. Paid $11.54 OOP. So, $2.88 each game. The cashier was fabulous and apologized up and down.

Also, on my way home from work, I stopped at the last day of Piggly Wiggly Double Days. :) It was fun while it lasted!!! LOL. I bought almost all junk food. :)

4 Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks, On sale $1.00 a box for 4 boxes. I had a $1.00 off coupon that doubled.
Charmin 12 roll TP, ON sale for $3.99 and I had a .50 cents off coupon

Today's Episode: Dealing with Cashiers ...and my Toys R Us buys...

So, I heard about the Toys R Us Deal of the Day (sorry I didn't post about it. I heard about it after dinner and I didn't want to disappoint you all with a deal that was ending). Anyways, the deal of the day was Buy 1 Get 1 Hasbro Card Games. I grabbed the coupon from yesterday's paper, Buy 2 card games and get one free. I also grabbed the $5.00 off $20.00 Star Wars Coupon and the $5.00 off $25.00 Toys R Us coupon that was mailed to me.

Anyways, I drive to Toys R Us...a half hour drive. I arrived and notice no sign near the games about the deal of the day. I went to customer service and asked them about it. They said there was no deal and I was wrong. I then told them it was in an email I recieved. They said that their had to be a coupon on it and that if I didn't have the coupon, I couldn't do it.  At this point I was fusterated. I walked around the store until I found a manager, I explained the situation and he said that Yes, he would find a coupon code for me and honor it.

So, off I went to the register. The girl rang me up ( while on the phone so I couldn't talk to her) and then the assistant manager explained that since I didn't have the deal of the day coupon, I couldn't do the deal. I left the register and walked out. I didn't fuss, but I did tell them that I wasn't happy.

Now, I didn't want to drive all the way home for a coupon that I knew didn't exsist. The deal of the day was sent by email. So, I sat in my car and thought. Down the road was a Best Buy...I decided to drive there and ask them if I could get on the internet.  They said sure and I looked up the deal of the day. Sure enough..no coupon necessary. I wrote down the website address where the deal of the day was located and drove back to Toys R Us.

I walked in and went to the service desk again. I asked for the manager. He came up, I explained the situation. I showed him the website address that had the deal. He said that he would "try" to see if he could push the deal through but made no promises. Of course, the deal went through by the computer. Then I handed him my other coupons. I thanked him for honoring his store deal. I told him I wasn't trying to start trouble, but felt it was necessary to show them that their was no coupon necessary.

So, Here is my transaction. :)
Star Wars Text Messenger Toy $11.99
Star Wars Light Saber $7.99
Hasbro Card Game Littlest Pet Shop Go Fish $5.99
Hasbro Card Game; Yahtzee Hands Down $5.99
Hasbro Card Game; Monopoly Deal $5.99
Hasbro Card Game: Sorry! Revenge $5.99

Total: $44.93
Minus $5.99 for the free game - Deal of the Day
Minus $5.99 for the Sunday Paper B2G1 coupon
Minus $5.00 Toys R Us Coupon Home Mailer
Minus $5.00 for Star Wars IP Coupon
Came to $23.76 with tax. Now, I could have only bought 3 games, but I wanted each one of my kids to get 2 games so I paid a bit extra. I know other coupon shoppers did better than me...but I was happy with the outcome.

Now, as for dealing with the cashiers...
1. be willing to walk away. ( get your coupons back!)
2. talk to a manager.
3. Don't get angry or raise your voice. The nicer you are..the more they will be willing to work with you.
4. if all else fails..call the corporate number. In this day and economic age, the stores really do want to keep their consumers. They spend tons of money on advertising..but bad word of mouth does alot of damage. :)
5. Explain why you believe you are right.
6. THANK THEM When they fix the problem!!!

:) Even us seasoned couponers get an unhappy cashier every now and then. :)

HotPrints has their new coupon code out!

Every month Hotprints allows you to make one photo book for free ( including shipping). IF you aren't doing this yet, you can go to http://www.hotprints.com/ and sign up. Then every month you can make a photo book. I love photo books and I use them to create memory books of trips the family has taken. Another really great idea for photo books is making one into your child's art book. Since kids bring home tons of art projects from school, and you can't keep them all, take a photo of each and then create a photo book of the projects. Make sure you add a date and a title to each photo so in the future you know what the project was. :)

Also, with Easter, Prom Season and other seasons, these books make wonderful keepsakes!!
