FREE Cereal @ Walgreens after RRs*

Walgreens has a Register Reward deal going on this week where if you buy 1 Gallon of Milk and 2 boxes of GM cereals, you get $2 RR. Use the following scenario to score FREE Cereal after coupons & RRs!!! *when you buy milk

Buy 1 Gallon of Milk $2.69
Buy 2 boxes of GM cereal $4


Use (1) 50 cent coupon for REAL California Milk
(includes Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs & Trix)

New Subtotal = $4.19 OOP (out of Pocket)

Earn $2 Register Rewards

Grand Total: $2.19 for 1 Gallon of Milk & 2 Boxes of Cereal!!!!


FREE Tide trial sized packets!!!

I know most of you probably already know this, but just in case I have new readers, I wanted to go over this easy coupon freebie:

Sunday 12/27's P&G insert had a coupon for $1 off ANY size Tide detergent. Use it to get a FREE trial sized packet of Tide at your local Target or Walmart. I personally have had better luck using this coupon at Target & of course, some cashiers like to go by what picture the coupon has, but I always point out "The coupon says it's for ANY size" , then they usually end up taking the coupon.

I know you probably think it's not worth the hassle for a FREE load of detergent, but I like to redeem these coupons because it's kinda like making up for the money I paid for the Sunday paper, especially since I buy more than 1 copy.

Our excellent trip to CVS today!!!

I am soooooo excited about our trip to CVS today, I just had to share with you!! Ok so, we went to CVS but since JJ (my son) was asleep, I went in alone and Jonathan stayed in the car with him... When I got in, I scanned my card and got a $5/15 coupon woo hoo!!! I was glad because I was already going to hit the $15 mark with the Contour meter alone... So, I got 1 meter, and 6 packs of Ivory soap. I threw in a pack of Charmin since it would be almost FREE with the $5/15 coupon...then, I head over to check out... The lady scanned my items and said I was at a negative balance. She called over the manager who told her how to ring up the $30 Contour meter my surprise, they deducted the $30 instead of $14.99...that's $15.01 OVERAGE!!! I was keeping a straight face, but inside I was Squealing with excitement...Ok, so then she tells me I have to find Items to bring it back over the zero balance..I told her to scan an extra pack of Charmin. Plus, she gave me back my 6 Ivory coupons, She Said "there's no need for you to use these" and my Grand total was 1 cent....yup! 1 whole cent, can u believe it???!!!??? On top of all that, I got a $5 Extra Bucks printed on my receipt for buying the Contour meter....I love it!!!!!

So, I ran (well not literally) to the car, to show Jonathan all the stuff I got for 1 penny, he was pretty glad, so he decided to go in as well.... He didn't find anything he wanted really for the $15 overage they were giving, he ended up getting a pack of Huggies and 2 Reese's candy bars...His OOP was 50 something cents...& also got $5 Extra Bucks since he used his own Extra Care card... Altogether...we paid well under a dollar for all these items, and went home with $10 in FREE Extra Bucks!!! Oh, and I ended up keeping my 6 Ivory coupons, so I have to go back for 6 more FREE packs..... Yipeeeee!!!!

How'd you do at CVS???


FREE @ CVS this week!

This week the 3-packs of Ivory bar soap are on sale @ CVS for 99 cents...Use the $1 coupon from 12/27 PG insert, to get these FREE!!!

Another great Freebie you can get this week is a small bottle of Dawn plus Olay hand renewal, they are on sale for 99 cents, and if you have the $1 coupon from the Home Made Simple coupon booklet, you can get it FREE.

Also, if you still happen to have any of the $30 Contour/Breeze meter coupons, you can use them as a money maker as well since they are on sale

Update: I had Jonathan go to Walgreens for the milk & I guess the $1.99 price is regional, here it was actually $2.39....boooooo!!!! SO!, the updated price would be:
$2.39 sale price

=$1.89 or $1.84...still a good deal i suppose

Walgreens has their gallon sized containers of milk on sale this week for only $1.99ea. If you have the 50 cent coupon for milk that carries the Real California Milk logo on it, you can get a Gallon of milk for only $1.49. Or, even better, Get 2 for $2.98!!!! That's a heck of a deal on milk, especially for someone who goes through a Gallon in like 2 days (me) lol....The logo is either on the milk cap or label.

***If you don't have any of these 50cent coupons from the sunday newspaper, ask the lady at the cosmetic counter if they have any milk coupons, last time I went the Manager handed me some 55 cent milk coupons which would make it $1.44 $1.84 a gallon!!!

Gift for couponers???

I was reading a post over at Couponing 101 about Christmas gift ideas for couponers. In her post, Ultimate Couponers Gift Guide, Stephanie states that it could be hard to shop for a couponer since everyone knows we get good deals and we would hate to get a gift from someone if they paid full price for it... That's so true!---For example: If we got one of those fancy Schick Quattro or Intuition razor gift sets, we would cringe simply because we probably all have at least 20 razors we got FREE w/ coupons a few months ago. Basically I can guarantee every couponer is already way overstocked on all of these typical health and beauty items including: shampoo, conditioner, body wash & lotions. Like my younger sister once said when she came over: "It looks like a mini mart in here". if you're shopping for your coupon buddy, but don't want your gift to be just an addition to the already overflowing stockpile of items, be sure to stop by and read the Ultimate Couponers Gift Guide @ Couponing 101 [HERE].

FREE Toblerone chocolate @ Walgreens!!!

I didn't want to post this deal until I verified, but if you head on over to Walgreens, you can score yourself some FREE....CHOCOLATE!!!! I have to admit...before reading about this deal, I had never heard or seen this product. I was thinking: "what the heck is a TOBLERONE?". Anyway, I was able to try these FREE & I loved 'em!!! You want in on this deal???? Here's how:

Buy 2 TOBLERONE chocolate bars on sale @ 2/$3

-Use (2) $1/1 Toblerone coupon from 11/22 SS insert

-Use (1) $1/2 Toblerone Wags coupon from December coupon booklet


***be sure to hand the manufacturer coupons first, so they'll go through without beeping. Also, if you have more than 2 manufacturer coupons, buy as many as you can, but still only use 1 Walgreens coupon as it will deduct the proper amount for the items you purchased.
