FREE Clairol Perfect 10 haircolor @ Rite Aid +More!

Ok, Perfect 10 haircolor kits are normally $11.99, and on sale this week for $9.99.... BUT we found that select colors are actually on clearance 75% OFF (only $2.99!), So FREE with the $3/1 Perfect 10 product coupon in the 1/23 SmartSource insert! The first Rite Aid I went to had them marked on clearance, but I also went to another store where they were just marked the sale price of $9.99, but when I did a price check, they rung up as $2.99, so if your store does not have them marked with the clearance stickers, make sure you price check! There are quite a few that are clearanced from browns to blondes, perfect for every taste! Lol
There were also select colors of Nice & Easy haircolor on clearance for only $1.99 (regular, $7.99), so FREE with the $2/1 Nice & Easy coupon from the 1/23 SmartSource insert. You can also find a $2 Nice & Easy coupon in the 12/26 P&G insert!
This deal made my not-so-exciting week at Rite Aid a little better!

Giveaway: Big G Whole Grain

Did you know that 95% of Americans don't get enough whole grain in their diet?

According to the 2010 Report of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, only five percent of Americans get the three full recommended daily servings - a shocking statistic.

With many Americans making New Year's Resolutions to live healthier, it's never been easier to get the whole grain you want without sacrificing taste. Every Big G cereal contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving, with more than 20 General Mills cereals delivering 16 grams or more. (At least 48 grams of whole grain are recommended daily.) Big G cereals are America's number one source of whole grain at breakfast, providing America with more whole grain at breakfast than any other breakfast food from any other manufacturer.

Only whole grain gives you the vital nutrients from the complete grain. The health benefits of whole grains can't be pinpointed to one particular component of the grain. It's the "whole grain package" that makes the difference. In addition to fiber, whole grain contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients that help ensure a healthy diet. A diet high in whole grain has been found to help with diabetes and weight management, and it may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.

Get into the whole grain habit by just looking for the big white check on Big G cereals! Cereal is already one of the healthiest breakfast choices you can make, and the entire Big G cereal line is made with whole grain, making it a great choice. Big G cereals have the brands and flavor your family will love, including Cheerios®, Lucky Charms®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Honey Nut Cheerios®, Fiber One® and Total®.

To be sure the other foods you are choosing have the healthy whole grain you need, just follow these two easy rules:

1. Look for a whole grain symbol like the big white check on Big G cereals or the Whole Grain Stamp developed by the Whole Grains Council

2. Scan the ingredient list and choose foods that list a whole grain near the top of the list

Visit for more tips, additional information about the benefits of Whole Grain and how Big G cereals can be a convenient and tasty way to incorporate more whole grain into your day.

Win It!!

One lucky reader will win a Big G Whole Grain prize pack which will include:

  • a VIP coupon for one FREE box Big G cereal

  • a cereal-on-the-go bowl

  • lunch bag

  • walking enthusiast kit

  • and a digital jump rope

UPDATE: TP deal @ Rite Aid is LIMIT 1 now...

Oh, wow! I just got a text from my friend Heather, that she went to Rite Aid this morning to get 4 more packs of toilet paper, and she only got $1 Up reward back, evidently so many people are complaining, and corporate pulled the plug on the deal. So, now as of Monday, no matter how many packs of toilet paper you get, you will only get $1 in Up rewards back. I don't understand why everyone starts calling corporate & ruin deals for everyone. Well, at least I already took advantage of it, and I have enough to hold me down until the next deal comes around.
It's actually LIMIT one per household, so you have to choose whether you want one tissue or toilet paper, sucks huh?.
If you ran into this problem, you could call 1-800-Rite Aid, and ask them to mail you your missing Up rewards since they didn't state a limit in the ad. They have done that in the past.
Thanks, Heather!

FREE Physicians Formula Mineral Wear powder @ Rite Aid!

When we were out and about at Rite Aid, I noticed they had quite a few Physician Formula products on clearance, the "Special Value" marked Mineral Wear products were on Clearance for $2.73, and I used $3 peelies from the New Mineral Wear display to get those FREE! They were only marked on clearance at one store I went to, but if you price check, they should ring up at the Clearance price.
***"Special Value" Mineral wear comes in the loose powder (like one pictured above) and also a pressed powder. Oh, and they come in a separate display, not on the wall where all the other Physicians Formula makeup is, although I did find a couple misplaced on the wall with the $13 ones. Just make sure you get the ones in the blue box with the pink square on the top right hand corner labeled "Special Value".

Did you get your FREE toilet paper at Rite Aid?!?!?!

OMG...this morning, I was awakened by Jonathan, telling me to hurry and get up because Rite Aid was going to open in 30 minutes (He LOVES couponing as much as I do).....I was soooo sleepy, but he said if I didn't wake up, he would go alone, so, yes, I basically just got up, brushed my teeth, threw on a sweater and slippers, and off we went.

First we went to McDonald's, and got some breakfast, LOL, OH, and my FREE Mocha w/ mailer coupon from awhile back...

First Rite Aid, we must've been the first people in there since it was only 8:02 when we showed up, and we didn't see a soul in sight, I was thinking it was going to be a mad house...but, nope, we got what we needed and off to the next..... (we ended up getting 10 single rolls and 10 tissue boxes)

Next Stop, ....not much of a trip, they were out of toilet paper, Jonathan went in alone, and I stayed in the car with JJ since he fell asleep. Jonathan was only able to get 10 facial tissues at that store.

After, we went to the Pelandale store, and OH-MY-GOODNESS, it was like a couponers reunion!!! I had never seen any other couponers while we are out shopping, but as soon as we pulled up, we saw a lady with a cart full of toilet paper and facial tissues headed to her car, and SHE WENT BACK IN! Yes, there was major shelf clearing going on....

Jonathan went in alone because JJ was still asleep, and I think he got maybe 6 single rolls of toilet paper....and some TGI Fridays snacks, there were lots in stock at this store, although the toilet paper was a different story, the lady ahead of Jonathan told the cashier there was still a lot on the shelf, but she lied.....It was pretty wiped out, poor cashiers, they only had about 6 they managed to hide for themselves. (No limits noted at this location)

On our way home, we decided to swing by the McHenry store, not my favorite, but we went in to see what the stock was looking like....they said Limit 4 on the 4-packs, so we got 4! We saw a couple other couponers there as well, one lady was arguing with the cashier about the limit of 4...but, although it is not listed on the ad, they DO have the right to limit quantities....

SO, before you start asking WHY I wanted so many rolls of FREE toilet paper, well, let me tell you a little story:

The other day, JJ (my 2yr old)walked in the bathroom and closed the door behind him, I'm thinkin', wow, is he actually going to attempt to sit on the potty on his own?! I opened the door a little and he said "NO!" and closed the door again, so, I thought maybe he wanted a little privacy??? A minute later, I opened the door again, and he had literally un-rolled the WHOLE roll of toilet paper ( & it was pretty new still) INTO the toilet! Since we couldn't flush the whole roll, Jonathan had to go in there and grab the wet, nasty, ball of toilet paper and throw it in the trash....yuk!!! What a waste! So, yes, whenever I get a chance to get my hands on some FREE toilet paper, I WILL! :)
How many did you get???

We're Moving!

Hey everyone! In case you're wondering why I havn't been posting much lately, well, we are MOVING! We've had drama at our current place because with all the recent storms here in California....we started getting leaks in our living room, since before Thanksgiving, and the landlady didn't fix it, so our ceiling caved in. Long story short, since it's STILL not fixed, we are outta here! So excited! Plus we're lucky to have our friends Heather and Randy helping us out as well. Talk to you all soon!
