Three Boxes of Tampons, Order Total = $.51!

Posted 08-16-2011 at 10:34 PM by tleca77

I'm a member of a few online survey/marketing research groups, as I'm sure many of you are. Tonight I realized that the $5 and $10 Amazon rewards that I've occasionally received since joining and participating in these groups had now totaled $20!

I'm a stickler for using only organic cotton tampons, which I usually have to buy online, since my local Target stopped carrying them a couple years ago. I've used Organix, Seventh Generation, and Maxim, and they've all been great. I'm...

Marathon shopping afternoon today, my day off. Hit up Famous Footwear for B1G1-50%, then Pet Smart, then Target, then Rainbow. Whew! I'm tired. Luckily I got a pair of Skechers fit-flops as my 50%-off shoes, so I wore those for the rest of the trips. Comfy!


Petsmart Deals

1 - Arm & Hammer litter, 40 lbs. (reg. $17.99) sale $13.99 - MfrQ $1 = $12.99
3 - Iam's Food, 1.8 lbs (reg. $4.99) sale $3.99 - MrQ $1 (x3) = $2.99 each
Saved $6.00 from my PetSmart...

Rainbow Trip - Yay For Ice Cream!

Posted 07-28-2011 at 11:05 AM by tleca77

It's been hot and sticky here in Minneapolis for the entire month of July. We've been going through ice cream pretty fast at my house because of it.

My trip to Rainbow last night was mainly to get some ice cream and a couple other items. Snagged some good deals on the way, using double coupons and some Rainbow coupons.

Spent: $41.42 ~~~ Saved $33.05 ~~~ 44%

My best deals

1 - Santa Fe Organic Lemonade (reg $3.49) sale...

Tonight's trip took me a loooonnng time, and I spent quite a bit of money. But there we definitely some items we really needed that were "splurges" as far as the prices go. $5 off a set of $37.99 organic cotton sheets is still $32.99. But it's worth it!! Those sheets are just incredible, and I won't buy any other kind from Target (or any other kinds from anywhere else that aren't organic cotton!)

And our grody bathroom really needed a facelift, so I got a shower curtain...
