Free Softsoap Body Wash!

I was reading last night on Hot Coupon World about how the Softsoap Catalina's were rolling this week at Walgreens. I knew this was a sweet deal that wouldn't last, so I headed out to take advantage of it while I could. I ended up with 26 of the body washes. I was able to get 14 last night and 12 today before *reportedly* the deal has ended. I'll take it! Here's the math:

Total Before Coupons: $113.34
Total Money Spent: $12.84

Petsmart SCORE!

I was able to score BIG time at Petsmart on Friday evening. I had 8 more of the $5/1 Iams q's to use up as well as the printable Petsmart coupons from below. They did not have the Iams Smart Puppy, so I had to get the kitty food instead. Between the overage on those q's as well as the overage generated by the $15/$50 Petsmart coupon, I was able to get quite a bit for the doggies that I normally would not buy. Here's the math:

Total Before Coupons and Pet Perks discount: $74.71
Total Money Spent: $7.41
Total Saved: $67.30 (90%)

Walgreens: Free Softsoap Body Wash and Mentos Gum

Buy one 18 oz. Softsoap body wash at $3.99. Use the $1/1 coupon from the March All You magazine or the $1/1 printable coupon. Spend $2.99 out of pocket plus tax and get a Register Reward for another free Softsoap Body Wash.
Then, you can take this coupon for a free body wash and buy another which will then print another coupon. And on and on!
These rolling deals usually do not last long and there's no guarantee they will continue rolling, but while they do, it's a super deal!

Walgreens reportedly has Mentos Gum on sale 2 for $2 this month. Buy two and use two $1/1 coupons from the 3/1 SmartSource insert to get free Mentos Gum.
Also, check the prices on the Skintimate and Edge Shaving Gels. Some stores have these clearanced for $2 or less and they are still producing a $3 Register Reward making these a money-maker!

I went to PetSmart last night to use up some of my $5/1 Iams coupons and was able to get a few bags of food. I ended up with 8 bags of puppy food and 4 bags of kitty food. We just mix them together and the dogs love it. They don't seem to mind the seafood tasting cat food at all! Here's the math:

New Camera! (Thanks Target!)

As I mentioned below, we used our gift cards from the Quaker deals to help purchase our new digital camera. Target had the Kodak M893 IS on sale this week for $99 with a $5 gift card free with purchase. Now, this is not a top of the line camera, but it gets the job done. We felt like we needed to have a camera around with the kids being so small. We also purchased a 2GB SD card at the same time because it was on clearance! Here's the math:

Super Duper Target Deals from the Weekend!

I did a couple of trips to target this past weekend amidst the moving chaos! One of my trips to to score on the Quaker granola bar/Target gift card deal. The granola bars were on sale at the new Target by me for $1.25 each box. When you buy 5, you get a $5 gift card. But wait! I was able to trade for some $3 off any 3 Quaker product Target coupons! That made this deal a SWEET moneymaker! Target paid me $3.50 for each set of 6 boxes I bought! I ended up with $50 in Target gift cards when I was finished and we used those to purchase a new digital camera since ours was stolen when our house was broken into. Woohoo! Free granola bars and a cheap camera! Here's the math from that trip:

Total Before Coupons: $130.40

Print These NOW!! HOT Coupons!

Here are 2 awesome coupons that will net not only FREE products, but possibly overage as well depending on your store's policy. Print these NOW, because they will not last!

Smartsource is offering a coupon for $4 off any Pace product. I can’t imagine Pace salsa being more than $4, so possibly free after coupon. You do need to be patient as the site takes a while to load and to send to printer. To print more copies just hit the back button and you should be able to print more. I printed FOUR copies and stopped there but have read of people printing up to 10 copies.

Go here and here to print at least 2 coupons for $4 off any Knox product. These coupons can be used on the small Gelatin packets which are priced around $1.36 at Wal-Mart. You should not only be able to get these for free but you might also get some nice overage to use towards other groceries!

It's Moving Weekend!

It has arrived- moving weekend! I've been packing and sorting all week now and it's finally here. We pick up our Uhaul truck tonight and get everything moved tomorrow. Luckily, we aren't moving more than 10 minutes down the street so it's not so bad. The worst part is we really have no help with the kids, so Russ is going to be doing a lot of the work by himself while I try to occupy the kids and keep them out of his way. Russ has an awesome co worker that has volunteered to help with the larger items so that will be a huge help. I probably will not have time to post again this weekend, so I may be MIA until at least Monday. Say a little prayer for us, and don't forget to get in on all of the bargains that Target is offering right now! Go here and here to check them out!

Awesome Target Trip!

I went to Target last night amid the moving panic because I knew I probably wouldn't get another chance to go this weekend and pick up a few things.

Cheap Wipes @ Target

I had several of the $5/1 Huggies Gentle Care coupons that I had traded for, so I wanted to go ahead and use those when I was able to find the wipes in stock last night.

Target Paid ME!!

I am very proud of this deal. I honestly never in a million years expected it to work, but it did! Target has a sale going on this week when you purchase 5 Quaker products you receive a $5 Target gift card. My new store has the regualr chewy granola bars on sale for $1.25 each box. That's already an awesome deal with the gift card, but I was able to find some $3/3 Quaker product coupons to trade for, so that made this a SUPER SWEET deal! Essentially for every 6 boxes of granola bars, Target PAID ME $3.50 to take them out of the store! WOOOHOOO! Here's the math:

Total Before Coupons: $86.46

Total Money Spent: $9.25

Total Saved: $77.21 (89%)

*Now, technically this math isn't righ only because I still have gift cards to spend. I used the gift cards to pay for all but 2 of my transactions and I had items other than granola bars in my cart. I spent $9.25, but I left the store with over $25 in Target gift cards!*

More FREE Johnson's Bath Buddies!

According to Deal Seeking Mom the IP's for the Johnson's Buddies have been reset. Remember you should be able to print 2 coupons from both links by using your browser's back button. Most stores, such as Target, Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens carry these for around $0.99.

Some stores will give you overage on the coupons, but others will need to adjust the amount of the coupon down to the price of the item since it’s less than the face value of the coupon making them free. If you want to avoid having the coupons beep though, a simple solution is to buy one more soap than you have coupons. For example, if you’re using one $1/1 coupon and one $2/2 coupon, buy four soaps to pay $0.96 out of pocket for them.

But if you know your store will allow overage or adjust down, printing all of the coupons above could net you as many as 16 bars of Johnson’s Buddies soaps for FREE!

It Pays (in pretzels!) To Do Surveys!

A few weeks ago I was asked to do a survey on my family's snack and pretzel eating and buying habits. For my time I was rewarded with an awesome box filled with bags of pretzels! Not a bad haul for 20 minutes of my time! Moral of the story: answer all surveys you receive from manufacturer's- you never know what you'll end up with!

I posted a couple of weeks ago about FREE business cards from Marketsplash by HP. I ordered 100 of them with my blog info to give out in stores when people ask questions about couponing, etc. (Hello to Chasity and the gentleman we were talking to in Target this evening!) I just wanted to share with you how good they turned out, so if you would know they are definitely worth the time to make them!

Weekend Retail Therapy: Walgreens

I only made one trip to Walgreens this weekend. As good as the diaper deal is, I just don't have the out of pocket money this week. But, I was able to get in on the diaper deal once as well as the Glade and Coke deals. I plan to go back once more this week to get more Glade, Coffee Mate, and Dry Idea deodorant. I intend to use my Register Rewards from this week on Walgreens diapers and training pants next week. Here's what we ended up with:

Total Before Coupons: $147.91
Total Money Spent: $16.55
Total Saved: $131.36 (89%)

*I still have $25.50 in Register Rewards from the above deals to spend next week. So technically, Walgreens paid me $8.95 to take all of the above stuff off their hands!*

Weekend Retail Therapy: Walmart

I made several stops this past weekend to get 'the deals' and Walmart was one of them. I was able to get quite a bit of dog food for little to no cost with coupons and Walmart's everyday prices. I've misplaced my receipt for the larger order, but here's my guesstimate if memory serves me correctly:

Total Before Coupons: $135.00
Total Money Spent: $28.00
Total Saved: $107.00 (80%)

On a smaller scale, I went out looking for the FREE Gillette body wash at one of my Walmart stores and although I didn't find it, I did find baby snacks at a good deal. Walmart has the Beechnut Let's Grow yogurt bites on sale for $2.00. Combine that sale with the $1/1 coupons from a couple of months back and you have $1 per bag yogurt bites. That's certainly much cheaper than the usually $2.84 price tag.

Total Before Coupons: $14.73
Total Money Spent: $6.73
Total Saved: $8.00 (54.3%)

My 'Favorite Things' Swap Package arrived!

My favorite things swap package arrived from Terry at Cherished Treasures a couple of days ago.

(Not great pictures, but pictures nonetheless.) So without further ado, here are my package contents:
Cute little magnet set:

Post It Note Set:

Coffee mix, Burt's Bees Lip Balm, and eye liner:
