Boston Contact Solution

For my fellow gas-permeable contacts wearers out there, Target is having a great deal this week. Their Bausch & Lomb Boston Simplus® Multi-Action Solution is on sale for 2 for $13 ($6.50 each). Combine that with a printable coupon here http://print.coupons.com/couponweb/Offers.aspx?bid=alk090331100350vnottvuw&pid=13306&nid=10&zid=iq37 and each bottle is only $5.50. They are normally priced at $7.96-$8.14 at Target and Walmart, so this is a 30% savings. You should be able to print the coupon twice (I've been saving these for a couple of months, so I had four to use). Depending on the Target you go to and the sales associate you end up with you might have to do separate transactions per coupon used, or you may luck out with one that actually understands printable coupons and lets you use them in the same transaction. This is a great stock-up deal for an item that, if you are like me, you have to have (my opthamologist made me promise NEVER to use the no-name brand of contact solution -- it builds up really bad on the contacts and caused me lots of problems a couple of years ago)

Bolt DVD

This is a last minute deal that I wanted to let you know about. I found this on the Shop Smart in Vegas blog on Saturday (I check it often; she finds great deals--here's her link: http://www.shopsmartinvegas.blogspot.com/). It is for the Bolt DVD. There is a $5 printable coupon here: http://recp.mkt41.net/servlet/MailView?m=32103131&r=MjE0MDIyNzA2OAS2&j=NDY2ODI3MzcgS0&mt=1 and a $4 rebate here: http://ronzonismarttaste.newworldpasta.com/bolt/bolt_rebate.cfm. For the rebate you just need to purchase a thing of pasta from one of the participating brands, which you might have already done a couple of weeks ago if you hit the awesome sale at Smiths. The DVD was on sale at Target last week for $15.99, which essentially left me with a pricetag of $6.99 when I get my rebate back! I don't know if it is still on sale there, but it might be somewhere else, and $9 off in addition to a sale price is great. You'll have to hurry, though, because the printable coupon expires tomorrow 3/31/09

Hasbro card games

I sometimes bypass some of the different inserts in the Sunday paper, so I can go directly to the coupon booklets and ads that I have been anxiously waiting for all week, but this morning I took some time to flip through other parts of the paper. Low and behold as I opened up the first page of the USA Weekend booklet (the cover article on Secrets to a healthier family--9 money saving tips caught my attention) there was a coupon for B1G1F on Hasbro card games. Sweet! It's never too early to start stocking up on stocking stuffers (try saying that fast 5 times) or have a present or two on hand for birthdays. Hurry. This coupon expires on April 12th.

Time to stock up on diapers and pasta

Here are my 3 great deals for the past week. The first 2 are from Walgreens. Thanks to their register rewards, supersaver coupon book, online coupons, and manufacturer coupons from the Sunday Paper I was able to get amazing deals.

This first one cost $11.04 (pre-sales tax $8.99). Total value of purchase was $48.96. That is a 77% savings overall! (The shampoo was actually free with their easy saver coupon and a manufacture coupon I had. Happy days!)
I just couldn't help myself. I had to go back to Walgreens later that week after I got a couple more Huggies manufacturer coupons online to stock up some more (with a 4 month old, I always need more diapers). This one came to $13.48 ($10.86 pre-sales tax). With the total value of the purchase being $46.92, it was a savings of 71%.
Smiths had a great stock-up sale on pasta last week. Since my husband loves spaghetti, I stocked up on that and other items. I bought 35 items total in this shopping trip, yet only spent $31.30 (I love the fact that Nevada does not charge sales tax on food items). The total value of my purchase was actually $97.82. It was a 68% savings overall. There is nothing quite as satisfying as handing over my Smiths card and clipped coupons and seeing the total drop and drop and drop while the mouths of the cashier, bagger, and customer behind me drop as well. Yes, I find such fulfillment in such silly things :)

What is this blog for?

I am obsessed with coupons and getting good deals. You know that you are coupon crazy when you come home from your shopping trips and are so excited that you set out all your groceries and take a picture--yes that is me. This blog is my opportunity to share with you my weekly shopping deals that I have gotten as well as tips and advise for getting good deals on food and other products. In this recession time, isn't it nice to know that there are ways to get things mega cheap and sometimes even free?! Who could pass up an offer like that?
