CVS Deals ~ week of 3/11/2012

CVS is looking HOT next week… Especially If you need a diaper deal (which I don’t = YEAH)!!  Seriously if you are a diaper buyer or know someone that is, you’ll want to print the pampers coupons from and go for the deal below.

 Everyone else can still count on great deals like:  FREE Zyrtec and Pediacare, super cheap Renuzit, Irish Spring and Reach Toothbrushes and a deal I have been waiting on – decent priced Laundry Soap!!  Not sure what happened to the days of stocking up on large bottles of detergent for less than .50 but the $1.49 is the best I have seen in a while!

 Remember one of the best rules to understand, of “COUPON 101” is the approximate 12 week sale cycle and in regards to laundry soap I find this to be pretty accurate.  So since $1.49 is my BUY PRICE, I need to buy enough to last me at least a 12 week period because it will probably be 12 weeks before I see that price again… See what I mean?



In my opinion, here are this week’s best deals:


Zyrtec 24-hr Tablets, 5 ct – $5.99

Zyrtec $2 Printable Coupon

Get: $5.99 ECB (limit 1)
= FREE with a possible $2 Moneymaker!!

What is your BUY PRICE on detergent? 

Are you brand loyal OR like me and have deviated from Tide in the pursuit of a discount?? 

Thoughtful Thursday ~

I have been really remiss this week… Late “Monday Matchups”, No “Tasty Tuesday” and No “What’s Up Wednesday”… it’s just been one of those weeks… Know what I mean?   Here it is almost midnight on Thursday and I am finally getting back to the deals… trying to see what I need to wrap up yet this week and preplan for next…

Gotta grab the corned beef yet – how about you?  Do you “do” boiled dinner?  I do the whole shebang and a ham for the corned beef haters like myself.  Corned beef – yes or no??

I also do have a funny story for you…  I ran into Tops for just a few items – cuz you know I did not have all my coupon deals mapped out yet – see I am really OFF this week – and anyhow, I get in line behind this guy…  Poor nice guy – I immediately start scanning his purchases through my coupon processing center in my head and see he is doing the whole Tops meal deal with the roast.  BUT – he has TWO roasts!  So I say to Mr. Nice Guy – “Hey, why are you buying two roasts like that and not getting all the FREE stuff for each one”?  He says, “Oh – I don’t want to have to come back”.  Me – with severe crazy eyes – “Oh my goodness NO – you are not going to OVERPAY for that nicey roast and NOT get all of the FREE stuff… seriously!!”  At this point in small town grocery store, another girl I know came into line behind us and she was all like, “Michelle, stop digging through other people’s carts!”  LOL…  Needless to say:  The nice man got all his extra freebies, completing two quick orders (cuz that is the benefit of nice home town stores) without having to leave the store and he and I were both happy again!!  At least I told him he should be very happy and I really think he was  – judging by the way he RAN out of the store… probably couldnt wait to tell others – right??!!!!  So lesson of the day – Don’t let me see you buying something crazy in the grocery store – I will totally go through your cart and make you correct it!!  LOL  Do you find yourself scanning peoples grocerys, do you watch intently to see if they are using coupons or getting the “right” deals?  Am I just nuts??  Do tell….

Okay – lets hope for great deals to be posted tomorrow and Saturday and PLEASE say a prayer  – send happy thoughts – whatever you believe, for my friend and favorite Rite-aid cashier Kristi, her young son NOAH recently had brain surgery and was rushed back into surgery today.   THANK YOU!!!

Monday Matchups ~ $149 FREE, WOW!!

Why YES I did get $149 worth of goods at Rite-aid for FREEE!!!!!!!!!

It has been a super crazy week so far and I hope you have not missed my nonsense ramblings too much.  I tried to do lots of shopping – really I did – but I could not get out of Rite-aid!  Seriously, the deals were awesome!!

Did you see these coupons in the Rite-aid flyer?  They are super coupons… see what I got:

4 Sally Hansen Nail Tools – Used (4) of the $3 coupons from the Rite-aid ad – paid $.04 (That’s 4 cents!!)

4 PRESTIGE makeup (or tools) – Used (4) of the $3 coupons from the Rite-aid ad – MADE $3 – Whoo-Hoo!!

8 Softlips, 2 packs  (YES, I had to do two seperate orders) – Used (4) of the $3 coupons from the Rite-aid ad – MADE $10.40 (OMG!!)

So – You see, I have made over $13 so far… Essentially I used this to offset the small cost of the other items I bought:

2 Secret deod.= $1.99 each

2 Revitalens = $1.99 each

3  7ups = $.66 each

2 Ben Gay Zeros (they were only $7.19 with 20% discount) = .19 each

Then I found a few more deals while I was shopping to add to the coupon deals:

2 AquaNet hairspray (cuz who doesn’t still want 80’s hair) – $2 coupon in ad = .39 each

4 Herbal Essence – On sale 2/$5, used $2 coupons from 3/4 P&G = .50 each

4 John Freida – On sale $4.99, used (2) $5 video values and (4) $2 coupons from 3/4 SS = .50 each

Now – all this:  Well over $135 worth of goods – I paid $2!!!  AMAZING – RIGHT???!!!!!!  Coupons are my drug!!!

So before I left, I went back through a bunch of makeup because the manager was marking alot of things down… Prestige had 2 mascaras for $6.99 that he marked down “75%” – I asked if I could use the $3 coupon and he said sure!!  Cashier rang them up at $1.69 each and took my $3 coupons and gave me $2 and change back – WHAT??  This is insane!!!!!!!  At this point I have $149 worth of goods for FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE – OMG, I am dying here!!!!

So I had to continue to shop….

I elected to pick up the L’Oreal Youth codes while I could, even though I do not have enough yet for the $10 Up when I buy $30 but I will find a couple more somewhere.  At B1G1 50% off = $11.98 for 2 – $10 in coupons (insert and video value) = $1.98 for 2 or .99 each.  I have $24 towards my $30 purchase and will spend another $2 (Totaling $6) and will get $10 back in an UP reward.  I will also get (if I can get some nice cashier to return and ring all my youth code on one slip) a $10 MIR!!

Needless to say, I did not make it into any other store….  Can you blame me??  I am on such a high right now – whoo-hoooo!!!!

Tops deals ~ week of 3/4/2012

Agh Tops – I do not even know what to say about the week in front of us…  What happened to our gas point deals?  Sure wish I was shopping like my new friend Ida – “Hi Ida , get better soon!” – She got almost two full tanks of gas for FREE so far this cycle – YOU GO GIRL!!

 Anyhow – we gotta make do and some of us NEED some food so looking forward, here are some good deals and what I plan on doing this week:  

  •  50% off deals – maybe the chicken and the bread are good SALE prices but as far as any of the items really being 50% off, I just don’t see it.  This Week’s 50% off Deals are:

 Fresh Homestyle Roasting Chicken – $0.79/lb
Peaches, Plums, or Nectarines – $1.49/lb
Bakery Fresh Italian Bread – $0.99
Campbell’s Chunky Soup – $1.25
Coca-Cola 6 Pack Bottles – $2.19
Wise Potato Chips – $1.99
All Natural Keta Salmon Fillet – 50% off
TopCare Pain Relief – 50% off


  •  Here we go again with a “meal deal”…  Normally I say RUN – but this time although the roasts are marked up, way up – I totally use and need the free items that come with the purchase and when you calculate it out; paying a little extra for the roast is still cheaper than paying for all of the other items.

Chuck Roast Meal Deal – Buy One 3lb. or more “Fresh Boneless Chuck Roast”, Get the following 6 items free:

3 lb bag Gourmet Russet Potatoes

1 lb bag Cooking Carrots

Stroehmann Brown n’ Serve Dinner Rolls

  • Another big deal is the “P&G Catalina” Offered:  Receive a $5 Catalina coupon when you purchase $25 worth of participating products OR receive a $10 Catalina coupon when you purchase $40 worth of participating products.  There are tons of items on the list, but I am going to try to make the Regenerist Deal work using the lower cost facial wipes… I’ll let you know how it works out….

Thoughtful Thursday ~ Points to Ponder

Today is Thursday and I have not been in a store yet this week…  *GASP* I KNOW!!  OMG, I am really have anxiety over this fact and am very excited that I have tomorrow off so I can hit all my favs.  Unfortunately it will probably be to get rain checks – but i am okay with that!!

I laid on the floor (don’t ask) and looked at my wall from a new view and I saw COBWEBS, not a little cutey either – a sucker that went from end to end and back again – probably took years to build…  OMG!!!  Now,  I am NOT  – by any stretch of the imagination-  a clean freak (Gawd I wish Iwas) but wholly molley…seriously??  This girl needs a maid!!!!!!!

My Pops is in Florida and I “inherited” his apartments – and the tenants (24 units in all) while he is gone… Know what I have learned?   I never EVER want to be a landlord!!  AND my trade for the awesome Florida coupons is not working when said Papa is tooo cheap to mail me the inserts…. UGH!!!  Love you DAD – not your business though!!!!

Why have so many of the deal blogs I normally read via email, gotten so long?  Seriously, what used to list ten topics now lists over 50… I do not have time for that – but I might miss a deal… OMG, the ultimate catch 22 – GGGRRRR!!!

Regular coffee cups are stupid…  what do they hold, three sips?  What is the point??  Give me a big ‘ol mug anyday!!

Do you think men and woman can be just friends – I say YES????  I’m writing an article and would love random input!!

What d’you got??  Do tell!!
