Target Trip: LOTS of Glade Candles!!!

I don't do a lot of shopping at Target at the moment. It's on the other side of town, and it takes quite a while to do the 3 stores that I do go to.  However, today I tagged along with a friend.  I'm glad I did.  I now have candles for tons of Christmas gatherings this year (think White Elephant parties, Secret Santa, hostess gifts, etc).  I also got clothing for my 2 littles and 1 of my sister's kids.  My friend and I also dug through the trial sized stuff for items that we could pick up for free with our coupons.  It was a fun trip.

The deal that I went for was "Buy 5 select Glade items, get a $5 gift card."  All of the things that I purchased were priced at $2.50.  This deal rolled, so I did 4 transactions.

  • 2 Glade Scented Oil
  • 1 Glade Premium Room Spray
  • 17 Glade Candles
  • 1 pop out hairbrush (stocking thing for the little one)
  • 1 t-shirt

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

What do you do with it all?

What do I do with all of the stuff I accumulate?  As I've said before...GIVE!!!

Here's another idea.  How about the people that come to your house almost every day.  Try making a bag for your mail deliverer, trash man, meter reader, etc?

Today I saw our mail lady walking her route.  Our mail lady seems down lately.  So, I grabbed a bag and stuffed it full of the things from my cabinet:  toothpastes, toothbrushes, Olay and Old Spice soaps, make up, dish soap, shampoos, etc.  When I walked out to hand it to her, she was amazed.  She kept asking, "Is this all for me?!  All of it?!"  She smiled a nice, huge smile and then drove away.

She felt nice.  I felt nice.

Yay for coupons!!

Super 1: Ziploc Vacuum Bag Deal is Rolling

 I posted here about the Ziploc Vacuum Bags that were clearanced at Super 1.

If you don't have the $1/1 Ziploc Vacuum Starter kit coupon, you are NOT out of luck!  Today when I was at Super 1 and was looking at the clearanced stuff, I noticed that I had a coupon for $1.25/2 Any Ziploc Bags.  This is what I did:

Buy 2 Ziploc Vacuum Bags
Use (1) $1.25/2 Any Ziploc Bags coupon
Pay OOP:  $1.25
Receive a $1.25 Off your next order coupon
Total:  FREE

I thought I'd just try and see if it would roll, and it did!!  So, after you do your first transaction, use that $1.25 coupon to pay for your second transaction, etc etc.

YAY!!  I'll be using these bags for holiday cooking and storing.  I'm not sure what I'll do with all of the pumps. Perhaps Benjamin can find something cool to do with them.

Kroger: POSSIBLY free BIG bottles of Olay Body Wash!!

I say "possibly" because ecoupons at our Kroger seem finicky lately.

Do you still have your $5/1 Olay wyb Secret coupon?  I hope so!!  I was at Kroger this morning and noticed that their GIANT bottles of Olay Body Wash (I purchased the Quench ones) are priced at only $5.  You can get the trial size Secret for $1.49 (it's back by the makeup section) or, if you are getting the Mega Sale, you can get the full size Secret Deodorant for $1.79.

I knew that there was a $1.50 ecoupon for Olay soap or body wash, but lately ecoupons don't always work, so I never count on them working.  If they do, it's just a bonus.  Well, today it worked!!  So, here's what you do....

Buy one Olay body wash and one trial size Secret ($1.49)
--Use $5/1 Olay wyb Secret coupon and $1.50/1 Olay soap or body wash P&G ecoupon
Total:  FREE!!


If you are doing the Mega Deal...
Buy 1 Olay Body Wash and one full size Secret Deodorant ($1.79)
--Use $5/1 Olay wyb Secret coupon and $1.50/1 Olay soap or body wash P&G ecoupon
Total:  .29 for both!!

Even if your ecoupons don't work, you can get both items for either $1.49 or $1.79.  Still an AMAZING deal!!

Super 1: Ziploc Vacuum Bag Moneymaker!!

Disclaimer:  This particular Super 1 tends to have cashiers that are very hostile towards couponers!  My cashier did not like that I was getting these for .25, and was especially upset when I got money back.  If this happens to you, I encourage you to still be polite to your cashier.  Remember....things are NOT more important than people!  I have not checked the other Super 1 stores in town, but you may want to do that first if you live on the other side of town. They usually all have very similar clearance items.  **EDIT:  The Super 1 on Hwy. 80 does not have them.**

I was at Super 1 (High and Birdsong) this weekend, and I noticed that they had their Ziploc Vacuum Bag Starter Kits on the clearance rack by the frozen goods.  They kits were priced at $1.25!  You should have a coupon for $1/1 Ziploc Vacuum Starter Kits.  I thought that .25 was a great price.  I bought 3 and used 2 of the Starter Kit coupons and one .55/1 Any Ziploc Bags.

When I checked out, the register printed me two $1.25 Catalinas!!  Now, I'm not sure why I got two of them.  I've tried looking it up.  It seems as though it is correct to print out one though.    This is one of those times where I freely admit that I'm not sure what happened.  **EDIT:  I think it was just a fluke.  Someone before me must have bought some and was not aware that the coupon printed.  I must have gotten theirs.  I went today and purchased 3 at once, and I still only got (1) $1.25 coupon**  Anyway.....Your transaction should work like this:

Buy 2 Ziploc Vacuum Bag Starter Kits ($1.25 each)
Use (2) $1/1 Ziploc Vacuum Bag Starter Kit coupons
Pay .50 OOP, Receive $1.25 catalina (good for your next order)
Total:  FREE plus .75 overage (possibly more if it prints out two)

WalMart: 90% off ALL Halloween!!!!

Get yourself over to Wal-Mart right now!  everything Halloween related is 90% off.  This includes things like cupcake liners, cookie cutters, costumes, candy, etc.  I went to the one on Estes and picked up the following:

12 Darth Vader costumes (he's always in style!!)
1 Super Mario Brothers, Mario costume
2 Pirate Baby costmes (girl, 4T)
1 Candy Corn costume
1 Buzz Lightyear costume
2 Fairy costumes
8 pairs of boys Halloween underwear (no one sees them!!  4 not pictured)
2 Wilton Holiday sugar mixes
3 Wilton orange sugar crystals

Regular Price:  $412.70
I paid:  $43.24

Now, what will I do with 12 Darth Vader costumes?  I could outfit an entire army from the Dark Side.  While that is interesting, I confess that I will do something a bit more money-minded.  I intend to hold on to them and then sell them around Halloween next year.  Last year I bought an Optimus Prime costume for Benjamin, and it turned out that he didn't like it.  I put it. on eBay and hoped that I could make my $2 back.  Someone bought it for $11!!  Nice.  So, we'll see.....

It may turn out that Benjamin will have the same costume until college.  Or every birthday boy we know will get a Darth Vader costume.  Or......
