Better late than never… My favorite TOPS deals this week ~ 6/24/2012

The newest version of the Kix cereal box.

I am very excited by the deals at Tops this week…  It is a super stock up week for me…  I am very behind on my shopping and stocking up but was desperate for milk and creamer – our main staples and I NEED gas so I figure I might as well use my GAS money to get as much food (cereal and paper goods) as I can and earn FREE gas!  A tank of gas (in my pig-hola Yukon) costs just over $110 so I figure if I can spend that $110 on stuff and earn the gas free I am getting twice as much for my money…  agreed??

 I have printed every cereal coupon I could find and will start with that, then on to a few other great deals…. 

What are you getting at TOPS this week????

What’s Up Wednesday ~ Back by popular demand…LOL!!


Lemonade Can

Lemonade Can (Photo credit: Gwen<3you)


Is anyone else truly going out of their mind right now?  I mean seriously, today was my kid’s last day of school and I swear, it was about a week ago that they started school…  and really – we are FRIGGEN’ half way to Christmas already – well about a week shy of that , but STILLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!   UGH!!!!!

Where in the world does the time go??  I truly, truly, truly hate that it goes so very quick…  I really want things to slow down… I want to enjoy myself more…  I want the old Country Time Lemonade commercial kind of summer – anyone remember those commercials??  I want my kids’ to have awesome memories of summer vacation!!  So what is a “PSYCHO-Control freak – losing her mind, mama” to do??  PLAN THE FUN I tell you, PLAN THE FRIGGEN’ FUN!!!

*Yet Planning my summer is going to make it go all the faster – I just know it!!*

So far, we have our first cheerleading boot camp, a Muckdog’s game, a Tri-Town pizza party for all the baseball/softball teams, a GIRLS birthday/campout and our baseball teams picnic – all planned for next week – GEESH!!!  The kid’s will be going to swimming lessons and rec. at the school each day through the beginning of August.  They also got Darien Lake Amusement Park Season Passes and we are getting the State Park season pass as well.  I am looking for a library program for once a week and with these things, my Mom will have somewhere to take them a couple of afternoons each week.  Sounds like that should make up for the fact that they cannot sleep in every day cuz the Mama has to go to “stupid work”!!  Ha – if you think you can hear my voice by reading what I write…can you just picture my kids whining that last phrase…LOL!!

I have also been watching GROUPON and bought Buffalo Aquarium passes that also offered FREE admission to the Rochester Zoo and we received tickets to the Buffalo Zoo as a gift…  So with all of these options, I feel like we are already looking at a pretty booked summer.  Don’t forget popping in on my in-laws at one lake and our favorite neighbors at another, seeing the 4th’s fireworks show at Buffalo Hill and hitting the drive-in at Silver Lake a couple of times…  See – next thing you know, we’ll be fighting to get back to school shopping done and dreading the fun filled Labor Day weekend because it will just mean summer is ending and we will be rounding the bend to winter…..  GGGRRRRRR!!!!!

So tell me – what do you do to CELEBRATE Summer?  How do you worship the Goddess that is sun?

What am I missing on my to-do list?  What will my children declare to their therapist (later in life of course) that their very own mother deprived them of because she worked all the time??

Guilty conscious,  perhaps??  PERHAPS!! 

So help a girl out… talk to me… what can I do to slow down time… or at the least what else can we plan to do this summer??

But alas, even in my darkest hour, peaking back at ole’ faithful, my CVS welcomed me with fantastic deals for the coming week!!

Aren’t you all glad I don’t write poetic journalism??  LOL

Anyhow, I will definitely be hitting up MY ALL TIME FAVORITE STORE EVAAAHHHHH!!!  and gathering FREE items by the basket full!

Most of the first few items are moneymakers…  there is Physician’s Formula skin care and makeup (the magic coupon machine granted me a $3/$15 Physician Formula Q and a $3/$10 any makeup Q last week – along with a $1 off any toothbrush Q – gotta love that machine!  AND I hope you scan your card multiple times until it tells you “no more coupons…”), and my favorite deal person Ann of Coupons Deals and More has an awesome list of rebates which include many Physician Formula rebates – see link below…   There is FREE Oral B, Crest Mouthwash, Starbucks Refreshers and Speedstick and you can grab some super cheap razors (I do believe our FREE razor days are gone – but getting an almost $10 razor for only .50 is well worth the trip!).  I am going to guess that with coupons, ECB and especially the rebate, we should be able to get over $80 worth of GREAT STUFF for better than FREE!!!!!!!!!!

So what do you think?  Are you going to give CVS a go this week??

Tops Policy Changes… What do you think??

Tops UPDATED their coupon policy…  I am not sure what these “changes” will mean or even how Tops will ‘institute’ the restrictions but I do know that I do NOT like what I am seeing… 

You can review Tops Coupon policy HERE!

 Here are some of the ‘points’ that caught my eye…


The GOOD –


  • If you forget to use your paper coupons at the time of purchase, we will accept them with your receipt and TOPS BonusPlusSM for up to seven (7) days beyond the date on the receipt, provided that the coupon has not expired.


The BAD –

  • TOPS does not guarantee in stock conditions on products for manufacturer paper coupons, Click-to-Card coupons, paper internet coupons or $1 Coupon Doublers. Rain Checks will not be issued for any manufacturers’ coupon, Click-to-Card Coupon or $1 Coupon Doubler.


  • Where available, TOPS GasPoints® earned on the redemption of manufacturers’ paper coupons limited to 10 coupons/100 TOPS GasPoints® per household, per day. TOPS GasPoints®: offer excluded from TOPS store coupons, Super Coupons and Click-to-Card coupons. Offer applicable during TOPS GasPoints® earning time periods. See for details.


The UGLY –

  • When available, TOPS limits $1 Coupon Doublers to four (4) $1.00 manufacturers’ paper coupons, per household per week, paired with a TOPS $1 Coupon Doubler redeemable during the current offer period only. Coupons of less than or greater than $1.00 value can not be paired with a $1 Coupon Doubler.


WHAT ????   

We can only get credit for 10 coupons per day?? 

And worse yet, they are saying we can only use 4 dollar doublers during the week of dollar doublers?? 




Now – let me say, Tops has ALWAYS reserved the right to limit our coupons… 

But what do you think of these ‘changes’?  Think they will actually implement them?
