Super Savings Saturday – 12/2/17

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

The week after Black Friday tends to be terrible for deals. Even though I have tons of store rewards ready and waiting, there’s nothing to spend them on! I ended up making only a single coupon purchase.

Rite Aid:

1 CeraVe cleanser, sale price $7.99. I used a $5.00 manufacturer’s coupon. Total: $2.99 plus $2.00 Plenti Points.


Other than that, we were fully stocked on supplies/groceries and ate completely from the freezer and pantry. (So much left from Thanksgiving shopping/baking/gifts.) Nothing too exciting around here…

Super Savings Saturday – Black Thursday Edition

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

What a week for shopping it was! I shopped ’til I dropped during the “Coupon Olympics” and ended up with bags and bags of freebies. At the last minute, I ended up adding more stores than I had planned, thanks to a reader’s tip. Because I wasn’t fully prepared, I didn’t get everything I wanted, but it came out pretty good anyway. I would say 2017 was definitely a bronze medal year and possibly a silver, but I didn’t attain gold level.

All of my shopping was done on Thursday afternoon/evening, starting at 2:00PM.

Cumberland Farms:

They were giving out free hot or iced coffee for Thanksgiving. This came in handy so I could perk up for the mission ahead.


I found everything on this list except for GUM toothbrushes and Organic Doctor skincare. In the past, they have not issued rain checks for Black Friday, so I was surprised that they offered without any problem. I will pick up those 2 items when the store restocks.

Rite Aid:

The store was completely empty, just me and two cashiers and every item in the flyer was available. It was probably the most relaxing shop ever, even though my list was huge. Great experience! My favorite freebie was the Kleenex. (Maybe I’m weird?)


Since they opened early evening and are located on the same street as the drugstores, I couldn’t help taking a peek. It was busy, but not insanely so. Every doorbuster advertised, including the TV’s, was gone within minutes and people were very upset! I spent $3.60—$2.00 for a Thanksgiving mug and $1.60 on a 6-pack of white washcloths.

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for the day, we then decided to venture to the mall for some free after rebate items at Macy’s. Good lord, that store is so poorly run! They had no ads, no carts, missing or misplaced signs, no rebate forms, and the rudest staff I’ve ever seen! Since I was literally winging it without a proper plan, I was happy to score all this stuff:

  • Bella mini crockpot
  • 2 Ralph Lauren pillows
  • Gold Toe Men’s slippers
  • Longchamp 4-piece crystal glasses
  • Disney Olaf stuffed animal from Frozen
  • Men’s sweatpants

I couldn’t find the thermal shirt, sweatshirts, or tote bags and the perfume was sold out.

As for the rebates, OMG, what a process. I didn’t realize that I had to submit a separate form for each deal, so it took over an hour to print forms, get receipts/UPCs and address each envelope. I’m happy to get the freebies, but Macy’s really makes you work for it.


How was your Black Friday? Did you shop at all, and if so, which day?

Super Savings Saturday – 10/21/17

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

This week offered a good variety of low price deals—candy, snacks, makeup and some actual food. The only bummer was missing out on free Irish Spring bar soap at Rite Aid. I did get a rain check, but they are so slow to re-stock, it will be a loooooooong wait.


Top round steak, sale price $1.99/lb. Total price: $15.43! (Because this type of beef is a tougher cut, I like to chop it up and then make into a stew or soup.)

Gala apples, sale price $0.77/lb. Total: $5.19! (I would’ve bought less, but the price was only good for a mini tote.)

Sweet potatoes, sale price $0.88/lb. Total: $2.78!


4 Trolli, sale price $1.99. Total: $7.96 plus $7.96 Register Rewards! (Specifically for Halloween and I’m hiding it from the rest of the family so they don’t gobble it all up early.)


Physician’s Formula lip gloss, regular price $10.49. I used a $4.00 manufacturer’s coupon and a $4.50 ECB. Total: $1.99 plus a $7.00 ECB!

2 Gold Emblem Rice Pop Clusters, regular price $1.00. I used a $2.00/2 store coupon. Total: Free!

Super Savings Saturday – 10/7/17

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

Since last week was Yom Kippur and this week is Sukkot, my shopping time has been extremely limited. Other than picking up necessities at Market Basket for normal meals and the holiday foods, I only found a few freebies and cheapies.


Baby carrots, bell peppers, and English cucumbers were all on sale for $1.00. I bought 3 bags of carrots, 4 green peppers, and 2 cukes. Total: $9.00!

Beef round roast, sale price $2.49. Total: $6.53! (Definitely will be a crockpot meal with carrots and potatoes.)

Muuna strawberry cottage cheese cup, regular price $1.50. Total: Free with store coupon! (Never heard of this brand before. I’d give it 2 stars out of 5 after tasting.)

Godiva Masterpiece candy, regular price $3.50. Total: Free with store coupon! (Really good chocolate, just like everything else Godiva makes.)

Toys “R” US:

Due to unrelenting nagging from the kids, we attended the Hatchimals Surprise Party this afternoon. According to the website, there was supposed to be live hatches, themed games and activities, free Puppadee manicures, and a free Hatchimals loot bag for all attendees.

Even though we arrived ten minutes into the party, the loot bags were already gone, and the other stuff? Oh my! Total unorganized mess, with nothing coming out right. Since Toys “R” US is in bankruptcy, I don’t think they’ll be working it out anytime soon. We left shortly after arriving, didn’t buy anything and went next door to McDonald’s for hot fudge sundaes.


After dropping everyone off at home, I headed out again on my own to CVS in search of a Maybelline mascara deal that should’ve been free after coupons and ECBs. Unfortunately, I waited until the last day of the sale and nothing was left in stock. I left with only a rebate.
