If the Converse shoes look familiar, that’s because the size 6 I bought for PITA turned out to be DUDE shoes! Yep, that size 6 was a guy’s 6 or woman’s 8. While I consider myself to be extremely accepting of anyone who has even the slightest chance of making me money (well, it’s true!), I would beat FirstBorn to death with his own leg if he evinced a desire to wear these shoes.
So I trekked back to Target to see if the size 4 versions were still on the shelf. They were! I picked up four packs of GE Reveal lighting products (read: lightbulbs) for the overage (plus 25% Cartwheel) and a Heath bar (shaddup) – OOP was $1.06. Told PITA that we could wear them together and people would think we were twins...I think her reaction constitutes elder abuse.
Hydrogen peroxide is, as I’m sure you will chime in about (’cause you’re all such clever readers) is a wonderful alternative to harsh commercial cleaners. Been reading up how it works beautifully to remove bloodstains. Side note: Rachel said she was a little concerned with my sudden interest in removing blood stains – stains significant enough to require 12 bottles…but I digress…and he still lives. Google household uses for hydrogen peroxide and you’ll see what I mean. This week’s Walgreen ad has a coupon for the Well at Walgreens hydrogen peroxide – 3/$1 (limit 6). There is also a monthly sale going on for B1G1 50% off. Through the miracle of Walgreen’s registers, they are making it a true BOGO sale, so you will get 6 for $1.00 plus low tax.
Happy (shudder) cleaning…
Waited until Superbowl was well and truly underway before heading out to the stores – that nuts I am not! Stopped at Jewel to post-redeem some coupons and grab a few of their new Big Book of Savings. Nothing particularly fascinating, but since they’re store coupons and don’t expire until 2/25, they’ll have time to prove themselves. While there saw an employee about to leave – - a non-driving employee. Offered to drive him home…to Westmont (the things I do!). Since I would be driving past the 63rd St. Target on my return, decided to stop for more “stuff.”
Between my $9/2 Reveal lighting products mfr coupons, the $2 Target coupons and Cartwheel plus the slight overage on the Iams cat food, I needed overage stuff. Converse shoes were $8.98 on clearance (in PITA’s size!), I can always use more vinegar for laundry, Lay’s chips we won’t discuss and the big one…the Magic the Gathering set. Why? Look closely at the next photo.
The boxes with the “Do Not Back Stock” stickers are ringing up at $8.98, the same set without the sticker is $29 (as are all other varieties). You do the math.
Total OOP after coupons, Cartwheel and REDcard was $16.14. I’m liking this chain!
Continuing home, stopped at Wags for a few FARR items – it was like a ghost town in there – nobody to bug me!
The Skylee Lovable Dragons are only $17.48 for the Green and $18.64 for the Purple – they’re considerably more on Amazon. Use your REDcard and save 5% more!
Matchbox Power Shift Fire Truck is now only $10.18 (40% off). Again, even less with a REDcard.
Barbie Holiday Ballet 4-Pack for $29.99 (40% off). Create a magical ballet performance starring Kristyn,
Twinkletoes the Prince, Poinsettia and Snowflake. When attached to the base they can really dance and it plays music, too!
Lots of Laser Pegs Building Sets. This Racer set is down to $9.98. Use the REDcard…
Did one full loop from my house to Target and back – whew! Target had a stack of GE Reveal $4 mfr coupons on the shelf and the ceiling fan bulbs were $3.84 – - used the overage from the $4 and the $2 Target coupons to reduce the price paid for my six DiGiorno pizzas and Nicoderm patches (14 ct boxes); the slight overage from the Iams wet cat food helped to reduce my OOP as well. So the total for the bulbs, pizzas/Coke, Iams and Nicoderm was $80…price of one box of Nicoderm is $39.99.
While at Target, look for these Game Day Greats coupon booklets. They contain $14 in store coupons on products like Kraft cheese, Ro-Tel products… Dates are through 3/2/14. they also contain recipes.
The price of Speedstick at Walgreens (at least by me) is well over $3 – obviously not gonna help us with a BOGO sale when the BOGO coupon value is only up to $2.99. Solution? Grab the clearance varieties (check the UPC against the clearance sticker because things get messed up) which are also ringing up BOGO and you’ll end up paying high tax. I got the four here for 27¢ and earned 150 points. Looks like they’re clearing out quite a few men’s and women’s varieties.
Hope you’ve been successful in your dog and cat food stockup – I have!
I’m breaking with my usual custom of not posting until I’ve actually run the deal, but this one isn’t based on any weird combos.
Print out this $2.00 off THREE Wet IAMS Cat Food and take it either Walmart or Target – both sell the little cans for under 60¢, so a MM! Since single coupons usually result in the rest of the page being filled with LARGE ADS, choose another coupon to print. How about this $2.00 off THREE Wet IAMS Dog Food? The only difference between the two stores is that Target limits you to four identical coupons while Walmart welcomes you with open arms.
If you’re gonna run the cat food deal at Target (REDcard makes it that much sweeter), you can also grab free GE Reveal light bulbs: Use the $1 S1 mfr coupon from 1/5 stacked with this $2 GE Target coupon. Since the usual price is under $3, that’s more free stuff!
Target has this Lodge Logic Cast Iron Set – Black (5pc) for only $48.75. Use your REDcard for free shipping and an extra 5% off. Cast iron rocks as I’m sure readers will comment about! This is an excellent price for Lodge cast iron cookware!
Figured it was just easier to take the whole cart… Nah, seriously, I picked up six more pizzas and 3 Diet Coke (because one of the house elves put my Diet Coke on the back porch – it was not a pretty picture). While passing from one side of the store to the other, I saw a large bin filled with slippers…hmmm. Well, naturally I’m attracted to bins of slippers with clearance tags – wouldn’t you be, too? And I’m obviously not a professional photographer! PITA’s 2 pr of pink slippers were $2.98, while my moccasins were $2.99 (the Naperville store had a lot of Hello, Kitty slippers, but the largest size was 4-5). Total for six pizzas, four Nicorette 100 ct gum boxes, slippers and three bottles of Coke was $60.63...the Nicorette alone sells for $39.99 a box
Since I was driving by anyway, stopped at Staples for my free ream of Hammermill paper. If there’s no line, I can run in and out in about a minute.
