Super Savings Saturday – 7/21/18

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

This week was freebie heaven, thank to rebates. Are you using Ibotta? If not, check it out. Because it’s a mobile app with no coupons to clip and no paper rebates to mail in, it’s super simple to use. Once you hit $20.00, you can cash out straight to PayPal and new users get a $10.00 bonus for signing up. 

Walgreens:

I intended to pick up more cheap school supplies, but everything was gone. I probably should’ve gone earlier in the week. Oh well…

Walmart:

2 L’Oreal shampoos, regular price $3.97. I used a $4.00/2 manufacturer’s coupon. Total: $3.97 plus $4.00 Ibotta rebate. 

Excedrin Tension Headache, regular price $3.48. I used a $1.50 manufacturer’s coupon. Total: $1.98 plus $2.50 Ibotta rebate.  

Forto coffee shot, regular price $1.99 plus $1.99 Ibotta rebate.  

Food Network Kitchen salad dressing, regular price $2.98 plus $2.98 Ibotta rebate. 

Rite Aid:

2 Twizzlers, sale price $1.50. Total: $3.00 plus $3.00 Bonus Bucks. (No pictures because a little monster ate both packs while we were still shopping.)

CVS:

Revlon blush, regular price $11.99. I used a $4.00 off $12.00 store coupon combined with a $4.00 Revlon store coupon. Total: $4.00 plus $4.00 ECB’s. 

Super Savings Saturday – 7/14/18

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

Can you believe it’s already time for Back to School sales? It seems incredibly silly to roll them out in mid-July, but that’s retail. I’m finding lots of supplies available, along with cleaning items like paper towels and tissues.

Target:

There was a Cartwheel offer, good for 15% off, with a limit of 4. 

2 Up & Up Crayons 24-pack, sale price $0.21 each. Total: $0.42.

2 Up & Up Rulers, sale price $0.21 each. Total: $0.42.

Walgreens:

6 Wexford Highlighters, sale price $0.16 each. Total: $1.00.

6 Wexford 2-Pocket Folder, sale price $0.16 each. Total: $1.00.

Viva paper towels, 6-pack, sale price $5.00. I stacked a $0.50 manufacturer’s coupon with a $1.00 store coupon. Total: $3.50.

3 Kleenex tissues, clearance price $0.39 each. Total: $1.17. (These were an unexpected find from the clearance rack. The boxes were crushed, but still usable and cost less than 1 box regularly does. Always worth checking your local store for stuff like this.)

I’m a little embarrassed to admit that we got swept up into the Build-A-Bear hysteria on Thursday. “Pay Your Age” was a total disaster, with long lines, and many stores shutting down completely from the chaos. We were parking right as the store closed, so there was no waiting, but the kids were crushed. I saw multiple little ones sob and multiple adults scream and curse. (Nice, huh?) Definitely was poor planning on the store’s part because they underestimated how popular it would be. A $15.00 voucher was issued for everyone’s trouble. 

Shaw’s:

4 Strawberries, sale price $1.50. Total: $6.00. 

2 Romaine lettuce, 3-ct bag, sale price $1.99. Total: $3.98.

Boneless chicken breasts, sale price $1.69. Total: $6.82.

Super Savings Saturday – 7/7/18

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

Due to being on vacation, my shopping time was limited. I picked up free dog food at Petco and then went across the street to CVS (because I’m so efficient like that… As If.)

CVS:

Sally Hansen nail polish, regular price $3.29. I used a $3.00 store coupon. Total: $0.29.

Dawn dish soap, sale price $0.99. I used a $0.25 manufacturer’s coupon. Total: $0.74.

Scope mouthwash, sale price $4.79. I used a $1.00 manufacturer’s coupon stacked with a $1.00 store coupon. Total: $2.79 plus $3.00 ECB. (There is a ridiculous amount of mouthwash in my stockpile, but I don’t turn down anything free.)

Oral-B toothbrush pack, regular price $5.29. I used a $1.00 manufacturer’s coupon stacked with a $2.00 store coupon. Total: $3.29 plus $3.00 ECB.

I didn’t do any regular grocery shopping, so I’ll have to compensate for the upcoming week with a huge haul. I guess it all evens out in the end.

Super Savings Saturday – 6/30/18

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

It’s 92 degrees and I feel ready to melt. Extreme heat and humidity aggravate my asthma and allergies, and also make me extremely lethargic. I’ve spent the past two days—since the heatwave started—moaning and groaning. Temperatures aren’t predicted to break until next Saturday, so it’s going to be a long wait.

On the shopping front, there were so many freebies and cheapies. Holidays are normally a great time to stock up and July 4 never disappoints, with every type of BBQ favorite on sale. I hit every store on my list except for Shaws. Their ad runs Friday-Thursday, so I’ll wrap that into next week’s Super Savings Saturday. 

Walgreens:

Remember that brown sugar I was chasing last week? I found it, and a lot more.

2 Nice light brown sugar, sale price $1.29. I used 2 $1.00 store coupons. Total: $0.29 each!

Trolli candy, sale price $0.99. Total: $0.99 plus $0.99 Register Reward.

Black Forest gummy bears, sale price $1.99. Total: $1.99 plus $0.99 Register Reward.

Walmart:

2 Garnier Whole Blends hair masks, regular price $1.50. I used two $2.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: Free plus overage!

Hannaford: 

Split chicken breast, sale price $0.99/Lb. Total: $18.89. (Huge stock up for the freezer. I portion 3 breasts per Ziploc with added marinade and it works out perfectly.)

Sirloin steak tips, sale price $4.77/LB. Total: $14.72. (Admittedly a splurge, but very tasty.)
