Super Savings Saturday – 1/31


Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

This week can be summed up in a single word—SNOW! Monday night and all-day Tuesday was a Blizzard. On Wednesday, I was cleaning up and yesterday it was more snow. Plus, another storm is predicted next week. All I can say is yikes! I’m experiencing total winter fatigue.

On the shopping front, I went to only 3 stores, but still managed to find lots of goodies. I really do love the coupon lifestyle.


4 Loreal Advanced hair care stylers (shine spray, volume filler, and color therapy), 3 on clearance for $2.98, shine spray $1.99. I used 4 $2.00 Manufacturer’s coupons stacked with $1.00/2 Target coupons. Total: $0.93, plus a $5.00 Target gift card!  (Don’t you love being paid to buy awesome stuff!)

Avent bottles, 3-pack, clearance price $7.48. (Huge discount off the regular price. I’m putting together a baby shower basket and these work perfectly.)



I did 5 transactions for maximum savings.

3 Velveeta Cheesy Melts, on sale $2.00. I bought each one separately. Total: $6.00, plus 3 $2.00 Register Rewards. I paid with points and it cost zero out of pocket.

KY Ultragel, on sale $6.00 and 2 Hanukkah gelt, clearance $0.07 each. Total: $6.14, I used the $6.00 Register Rewards and paid $0.14, plus a $6.00 Register Reward.

General Health Chews, on sale $10.00. Total: $10.00, I rolled the $6.00 Register reward and paid $4.00 cash, plus I received a $10.00 Reward back.



There was a great promo deal on snacks and soda: Buy 1 Orville Redenbacher popcorn and get another box and 2 bottles of soda for free. Total for all 4 items: $2.99!

4 salsas, on sale $2.49 plus BOGO. I used 2 $0.75/2 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $0.49 each!

Monday is Bulk Cooking Day


Like to cook? Please join me on Monday, 2/2, for a bulk cooking day. While I plan to make a bunch of goodies, there are no requirements other than cooking at least one item anytime during that day.

My tentative list includes:

*  Baked chicken with potatoes

*  Baked brown rice

*  Chocolate pumpkin muffins

*  Spiced chickpeas

*  Meal prep for the week  (washing/chopping all the veggies and fruits and finishing touches for the meal plan)

Most of these items I already have on hand, but I’m grocery shopping tomorrow for a few odds and ends. I find bulk cooking days go smoothly when I’m well-stocked, with a detailed list, and plenty of quiet time in the kitchen.

Everyone is welcome to link up their results, or just follow along for the fun of it. See you Monday!

Tea Collection’s New Arrivals from India

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links.

Have you seen Tea Collection’s new arrivals from India? During their inspiration trip to India, Tea’s designers kept thinking of characters from “The Jungle Book” by Rudyard Kipling. As a result, you will find styles with familiar names, such as Bagheera the panther and Kaa the snake, in this collection. Wild jungle foliage graphics will be seen on many tees, dresses, pants and hats. These bold new arrivals from the patchwork jungle of India will inspire every little citizen.

I love the Gorumara Flora Graphic Tee and the Bangalore Flutter Dress.


Everyone can get 10% off their order from the new collection and free shipping on orders of $75 or more!
