Ran to the Mall Today...Spent $9.00. :)

Well, I had to run to a doctor's appointment in the town nearby. Since I was going out there and they have a mall, I stopped in and picked up some goodies!

First stop, Waldenbooks. My kids finished their summer reading program that I have posted about in the past. Each child got to pick out a free book. No OOP, retail value $11.00
Second Stop, Victoria Secret. I got my $10.00 birthday card from them this week and they are having their 75% off Semi Annual Sale. There wasn't much on sale, but I found a bra for $12.99.  So, after my gift card, I paid $3.15.
Third stop, Bath and Body Works had their Semi Annual Sale. I needed some Anti Bac Stuff for the camper, so I got 3 bottles of Pump Soap for $1.25 each and 2 Summer Anti Bac Hand Sanitizers for $1.00 each. Total was $6.10.

Not a bad trip..I have been in the shopping mood lately. :)

Grocery Shopping..Double Doubles!

Well, My husband and I went out this morning to grocery shop. It was a Double Double Event at Pick N Save. About 1/2 Dozen of us were there this morning with our binders ready. Shelf Clearer Guy was there...but thankfully I was able to get everything I wanted to get, plus find a few finds that really helped my family! I spent $71.41 on $345.26 worth of groceries. The cool thing is that my store was getting ready to do a reset of the store, so they had ALOT on clearance!!!

Some of my best buys were:
Langer's Juice, I bought 21 bottles ( NO, I didn't clear the shelf, there was a LOT of it!) They were B2G1, The price was $2.99. So, $2.99 *3 bottles =$8.97 - One Free $2.99 = $5.98 then apply the $1.00 coupon on all three bottles, which is $6.00 off, making them free. :)
Noodles, I got 9 boxes free. All were on sale for 1.99 and I had a $1.00 double coupon
Soda, 2 liters were $1.00. I had $1.00 off 2 bottles. I bought 12 bottles, all free.
Lunchables, ON sale for $2.39, I had a $1.00 coupon that doubled, Paid .39 cents after discount.
Dole, Small Cans of Pineapple. .60 cents each. I had a coupon off .50 cents on any two, that doubled, making each can .10 cents.
Bolonga, $1.39 each, I had $1.00 off 2, which doubled, I paid .39 cents for Bolonga, Which my son is very happy with!
Crystal Light, ON sale for $2.19, I had $1.00 off one cansister, making them .19 cents each.
I also picked up a lot of lunch meats, cleaning products, etc. I also used the Discoll coupons for some raspberries!

So, that was my trip. No photos because the kids helped me put it away and they got to the groceries  before I did!

Have a happy day! Let me know if you did super doubles and what you found!!!

Double Double Trip at Pick N Save...the good, the bad and the ugly!!!

Whew, what an adventure to Pick N Save today.

The good news is that I spent $54.91 on $257.96 worth of groceries! It was 7 transactions (70 double coupons).

The bad new is that there was a man there who HOARDED everything he could. He was a shelf clearer and I noticed him using coupons on items that weren't on the coupon! ( I knew because I had the same coupon and was trying to buy items and he was grabbing other items not on the coupon). This is the ultimate frusteration for me! Please don't shelf clear ( unless there is like 2 on the shelf!) Share this fun with others. Please don't misuse coupons. The manufactures will lower the values and shorten the time frames OR just not print coupons at all!

The ugly news was that there was a SEVERE thunderstorm and in the middle of shopping, we were ushered into the dairy cooler while the storm came through! Cars were damaged, trees went was crazy! We had to drive home around a police stop because a tree fell on a car!

NOTE: Another Frugal Fun Day, 6 Flags Great America

My kids school participates in a program that gets free 6 Flags Great America Tickets to kids who read 6 hours in a specific time frame. My kids have participated in this program every year and if it wasn't for this program we would not go to 6 Flags ( way to expensive!).

Anyways, since this is expensive, how do we keep our costs down? Well, Coke Points has Adult Tickets Free with 1000 coke points! So, All year I find coke points and cash them in for 2 tickets.

So, all tickets are covered. We pay for parking ( $20) and food ( which last year was also on discount due to Coke Points, we will see if that happens this year!). That is it! We make an agreement with the kids. No begging for souvenirs or other items to buy ( out of our budget) and we will buy ice cream ( with coupon) on the way home. So, the entire day typically costs us under $75.00 for a family of 4 at 6 Flags.

What great deals are you getting for this summer? My summer is booked with great adventures at such small costs. This one 6 Flags is the most expensive one for the summer.

Tomorrow is National Donut Day! So get your free donut!!!

Dukin Donuts is giving away free donuts! Follow this LINK for the press release!

Also, Krispy Kreme mentioned their donut giveaway on their Facebook Site! LINK
