Another Walgreens Deal!! $124 worth of items for $16.16

I wanted to use the rest of the BOGO coupon for Right Guard because they expired today. I didn't get to use all the coupons because I didn't want to clean the shelves. But, I did use 13 coupons, picking up 26 body wash/deoderant. Now, I am sure some of you will think,"HOARDER" but I wanted to also let you know that most of that will be donated to Touched Twice, a program that is run by our church. Also, always check your reciept! I found $9.00 worth of mistakes on my reciept and went back in and got it fixed. :)

Now, with that all said, Here is my deals!
Transaction one:
Iced Cappacino $2.00
Goody Powder $1.50
Paid $3.58
 Got $3.50 in RR's back

Transaction Two:
Hawiian Tropic SunScreen $11.99 each, BOGO, then they has a $2.00 off each IVC and a $1.00 manufactures coupon and when you bought 2 bottles you got a free Walgreens Aloe Vera Gel. Also, each sunscreen had a free lotion attached!!
2 Right Guard Body Wash, BOGO sale and BOGO coupon
24 Right Guard Deoderant, BOGO sale and BOGO coupon, Some of the Deoderant has free samples of body wash on them too!
3 pk of underware, on clearance for $3.00 and I had a $1.00 off coupon
 Total after coupons, rebates and correction to the reciept was $12.58

So, I now have a huge donation for our church and I got my summer sunscreen!

Stay Frugal!

Great Deal at Walgreens today!

Well,  didn't get the Ritz crackers today at Walgreens ( bummer) but I did get the BOGO Right Guard. I had BOGO coupons so I got 2 bottles of Body Wash and 4 deoderants with trial size body washes on them all free! I also got some coffee for my husband, used my RR and paid $1.53.
Then a quick stop to Walmart. My friend got me a pile of $1.00 off any Sensedyne Toothpaste and Walmart sells the trial size for .97 cents. They had 18 in stock. So I used my coupons and got the .03 overage. I also bought hamburger and hot dog buns. OOP $3.93.

Do you miss me?...Random Notes...

Hey Gang! Sorry I haven't been posting! I was out of town this weekend and I have been so busy as the school year comes to a close! Hope you all have been finding great freebies and good deals. I have been lucky enough to get some awesome hand me downs from a friend! These clothes my son will be able to use for at least the rest of the year and probably more!! Also, I recently was lucky enough to participate in a silent auction fundraiser! I got well over $200 worth of gift certificates and also some gifts and I paid under $90! So, that will give us some more resturant deals and family activites to do over the summer at a reduced rate!!

I am buckling down for a very frugal summer! My husband's income isn't enough to combat the high gas prices and the fact that my income is nil over the summer. I have found more sources for free coupon inserts. I am planning all free events for the summer ( so it will cost gas and nothing else). A cooler full of lunches and a camera for photo souvenirs. Also, our local city will be doing the free concerts all summer, so we will be able to enjoy those. The library and our bikes will keep costs down too.

So, I will get more deals up again!! Groupon, Swagbucks and other great programs are out there!!!

Have a Frugal Day!

I am stunned! J'aime Kirlew admits to coupon fraud


Wow, J'aime in the article above admits to coupon fraud. She said she does used coupons not intended for the products she buys. How sad.

I have been couponing for more than 15 years. I have made mistakes, misread a coupon or whatever. BUT, for her to fully admit it and to just not care makes me so sad. Please, readers of my blog, know that I would never teach you anything illegal or imoral. I feel so blest to have the skill to do couponing, to pay off debts and to take care of my family. I also feel blest that you come to my blog to read about freebies, offers and  coupons. It makes me terribly sad that this women tried to pull a fast one and because of it MANY stores are changing their policies and are trying to protect themselves! Most couponers are not like J'aime, most couponers don't cheat!

This response from Hot Coupon World is a perfect response to how I feel!  http://www.hotcouponworld.com/2011/05/extreme-couponing-star-admits-to-committing-coupon-fraud/

For those of you asking questions, emailing me or commenting, I am very grateful to all of you. I feel bad that someone would take advantage of the couponing world.

Don't know what Wisconsin Dells Season Opener Passes are?

We spent under $200 for the entire trip ( including food and lodging). We saved over $600. We stayed at a family's campground ( cheap), we didn't eat out, we used the coupon books for admission. Souvenirs were photos I took and the penny presses my kids loved. And that was it. We spent under $200 for a family of 6 to spend the weekend in the Dells.
