  1. This week Bic is a money maker several places.
    Through 8/3 at Staples the two pack white out or velocity pens for $0.50
    Starting tomorrow 8/4:
    Walgreens has the Bic Atlantis pens for $0.99
    Office Max has Bic crystal pens for $0.50
    Target has Bic pencils for $0.99
    Jewel-Osco has Bic roundstick pens for $0.88

    • I didn’t post this because it’s a hit or miss kind of deal – not every Walgreens carries this trial/travel size (and no guarantee it’s the same price if they do). I checked a few stores around me and no one had ever seen this size before. But great that you were able to score it!

  2. Target has a promotion right now buy four Chapstick 3pk and get a $5 gc. There’s a cartwheel offer for 10% off and manufacturer peelies on Advil products for $1.50. If you buy the regular price ones pay just $4.40 with a $5 gc back. If you’re lucky like I was, buy clearance ones at $1.48 each and pay nothing, and get a $5 gc back!!

  3. Hi Rachel,

    At Shop and Save until Tues., 9/17, Green Giant baby carrots are on sale for 3/$1. The first Big Book of Savings from Jewel had a $1 coupon for any Green Giant bagged vegetable that doesn’t expire until January.

    I was able to use it towards my three bags at the Schaumburg store to get them for free.

    You could probably also take the ad to Walmart for a price match and get overage with the coupon, but that would require you to try and price match with a coupon. YMMV, and I’d rather just get three free bags than argue about .67 overage any day of the week.

    This is a fresh produce item that I believe most food pantries would happily welcome and be able to pass along to their guests.

    Hope this helps! 🙂


  4. 1) I have a set of 5 subscriptions of Tribune that I am not using. Currently have 10 weeks of paper that I have not even opened. Would anyone be interesting in buying at cost? $0.50 each. Its a set of 5.

    2) If someone can’t get paper delivered to their home and would like to buy mine from me at cost(Handover Park/Schaumburg/Streamwood area), I am open to that as well. Unfortunately I have to make a decision by COB today…thought I had one more week b4 the new 13-week cycle but I was wrong.
