There are codes out there for free shipping, but this site only allows one promo code, so the shipping is less than what you would save with the other promos, so use those.

The Grocery Store Envelope


I had this awesome idea, all on my own. Take an old envelope, like this one that a bank statement came in, write your grocery list on the back, put the coupons inside for the shopping trip. Then recycle the envelope after your trip. Awesome.

Old Navy

Connor modeling the $2 Old Navy Costume! It's a 4/5T, and he's a 2T, so it's pretty big, but will work next year. He likes to wear it around the house and ROAR. So it's near impossible to get a picture of it.

I got this deal by asking the manager for any in stock costumes, it was behind the check out area. So, don't be scared to ask! All Old Navy's other Halloween stuff was $2 as well, shirts, boxers, onesies.

Snuggle!

With the assistance of coupons from Kari, I was able to copy this Hip2Save transaction.
I'll break it down, Winona Style.
  • I bought: 2 Pink Snuggles, 6 Blue Snuggles.
  • Used 8 $3 off coupon from 10-4 RP, making them a quarter a piece.
  • Total came to $3.79 (tax was $1.79)
  • I had a $2 off any purchase coupon from buying Nature's Source last week.
  • Final Total of $1.79, and I used cash.
  • Received a $5 coupon off my next purchase of anything over $5.
  • Made $1.21 on this, plus now I have enough fabric softener for 208 loads of laundry.
Thanks Kari, this could not have been possible without you. Also, Kmart is low on stock of this, who knows if they will re-stock. The cashier was so mystified by my savings, he had another cashier come look at it.

Walgreen Freebie's

I thought it may be fun to share pictures of coupon findings! Anyone have any they want to share? I love looking at pictures of this stuff.
Here I have Connor checking out my Walgreen freebies.
  • 1 Gillette Fusion Razor, on sale for $8.99, used a $4 coupon (9/27 RP), and got a $6RR. $1 profit
  • Herbal Essences conditioner, on sale for $2.99, used $1 coupon (9/13 RP or 8/23 RP), got a $2 RR. Free.
  • Vaseline Lotion, $6.99, received $7 RR. Free
  • Chapstick Effects, $2.99 received a $3 RR. Free
  • Halls Refresh, on sale for $1, used 75 cent coupon (9/27 SS) received $1 RR.
  • Oral B toothbrush, on sale for $3, used 75 coupon (9/27 PG), received a $3 RR. Profit 75 cents.

Of course there is sales tax on all of that.

I know there are PLENTY of other blogs out there with this exact info, but isn't it fun to see Connor checking out the merchandise? Send me any pictures you have of your finds!

On side notes, on Sunday the Oral-B RR wasn't printing, so the manager gave me a $3 giftcard. Today, the razor $6 RR wasn't printing, so he gave me a gift card for that. Upon closer inspection, I was only suppose to get the $6 RR if I bought the "MVP" razor, so technically I wasn't suppose to get this. Oops.

Glucose Meters

Donating Glucose Meters - two options.

1) Bring them to Sue Haug at the Winona Clinic. Go the 2nd floor, to the last desk (farthest away from the elevator) and ask the receptionist for Sue.

2) Give the meters to Kari Y, and I will drop off a batch once a month or so. If you don't know where I live, let me know and I'll give you directions.
