Tis the season...

Hey friends. The kids and I have been going the rounds of winter time sickness. Just bunches of fun! In the meantime, I have managed to hit Smith's current event but I obviously haven't had time for my usual documentation. :( I wanted to give you all a quick tip on some deals you really ought to hit just now and to tell you all the exciting news about the $100 visa card I just won!! I spent a good month or so daily entering online sweepstakes and won a few small prizes and then decided I was done.... until I got card in the mail the other day!! The thing with the sweepstakes is that you have to understand how it works.
You enter like crazy and then you have to wait for the contest to end, the winners to be decided and the prizes to be delivered. It can take months. I've decided it is worthwhile, I just need to have the right expectations. I am back to an hour a day of sweeping! Wish me luck!!

Now onto the deals you don't want to miss!!

My Shopko deal

I hit Shopko the other day to find a button up shirt for my son's Halloween costume. I had my $10/$20 prescription reward coupon to use. I searched and searched but there just weren't any boys' button ups that weren't part of a three piece outfit and they were out of my budget. I looked through all the clearance and beyond. Finally, an amazing discovery, in the baby section! This boys' shirt, not a baby shirt, was hanging randomly with some baby clothes. I was beyond excited, especially since it was just the right size!
Here's what we got:

Button up shirt $9.99

Halloween candy 2/$5

Grape and Cherry Kool-Aid .05 each (clearance)

-$10/$20 coupon

I just love getting and using these coupons!

FREE is for me!

Hey kids! I have been so busy lately! Family events, school projects, busy weekends! I am feeling so productive lately! One thing I have spent a lot of time and energy on has been bottling. I was never into it before these past couple of years. It sure does become addicting once you catch the bug!
It helped that I given loads of FREE tomatoes and apples by family members. I found and tried lots of new recipes, learning a lot along the way! I thought I was all bottled out until this weekend's day trip to visit family in Price. At the gas station where I was desperate to find a bathroom, I noticed a large box of apples by the front door.
After doing my business and grabbing a Coke for the hubs, I asked the cashier what the deal was with the box of apples. You know I am not one to shy away from the possibility of FREE!!
She informed me that they were there for the taking. I asked if it would be rude of me to take the whole box. She laughed and told me to take and enjoy them! James was surprised to see me heading back to the van with a huge box of apples in tow. Things like this are becoming more and more common and James doesn't complain about it much anymore. It's hard to argue with FREE!!
As you can see, these weren't the most fresh or fabulous apples. For apple butter or sauce however, they are perfect! I got half of them processed this morning. They are in the slow cooker now, filling the house with a beautiful aroma! I even found several in there that were still good enough for the fruit bowl.

While in Price, my long suffering sister in law and I made what should have been a quick trip to their local Smith's market. She had no idea what she was in for! To be fair, neither did I!! The internet reception there is terrible and my 'smart' phone was reduced very quickly to being nearly useless!
I had to hit Smith's that day because one of the Friday FREEBIE uploads I had accumulated was expiring that day. No way was I going to miss out on it!
Unfortunately, my Kroger account was messed up and I couldn't access it to see exactly which items I needed to grab. Not only that, if I moved from one exact spot in the store with my arms up at just the perfect angle, I would completely lose my internet connection and have to start over! My sis in law was beyond patient, though I know she was probably going nuts inside, or at least thinking I was nuts!
With a lot of luck and persistence, I was able to figure out which items were going to be FREE and we headed up to check out. While getting my things ready, I discovered a catalina coupon in my purse that I hadn't noticed before for yet another FREEBIE! My sis in law was such a good sport and ran to grab the item for me while I continued checking out. I will be incredibly surprised if she EVER joins me on a shopping trip again!!
Honey Combs cereal $1.99
-$1/1 Honey combs cereal cataline coupon= .99

Robitussin kids cough syrup $1.39 (clearance)

Temptations tumblers
Triscuit Thin Crisps
Idahoan steak house casserole
ALL FREE with Friday upload coupons!!!

Luna protein bar $1.00
-FREE Luna protein bar catalina coupon!

Some, no, many, would argue that what I do isn't worth the time or effort. I tell them that I don't have to work outside of my home, I get to watch my kids grow up and spend my time doing what I choose without worrying about a time clock. It's worth it to me!!!

Ps. The more you shop at Smith's (Kroger), the more FREEBIES and great high value coupons you will get, in the form of uploads, paper coupons in the mail, and catalina print coupons at the register.

More Toilet Paper!

I am happily building up my toilet paper supply thanks to the great deals Shopko has been running lately!
Here's the deal I worked up this week:
(3) Charmin 24 double rolls $12.99 each
-.25/1 any Charmin product
For some reason, the cashier had to hand key these coupons. The register didn't want to accept them. It was pretty annoying.
-$10/$20 Shopko Rx Rewards Coupon
+ $10 Shopko gift card wyb 3 Charmin products!!

That makes it about $6 and change for each 24 pack of double rolls!!!! Here's to happy bums and great savings!!

Monday, September 15, 2014

A good deal

Here's a fun deal I got last week that I must crow about!
I got two of these huge 24 double roll packs at Shopko for $11.99 each last week. I had $1 coupons for each PLUS my $10.00 prescription rewards coupon!!!
So yeah, like $12 for 48 double rolls of my favorite toilet paper!!!! Crow, crow, crow!!!   ;-)


I just love all of the FREE goodies I find in the dumpsters and recycling bins that I then get to use for my own purposes, saving me all kinds of money on things that I need anyway!
I made invitations for my daughter's upcoming baptism. This fabulous glitter card stock and the brand new envelopes and stickers, are from recycling bins or dumpsters.  The only thing I paid for was the ink to print!
I am going to put a post together soon of all the things I DON'T pay for. Stay tuned!!

Smith's Report

Well, we did it! I am ready to fall over, but we got it all done! The kids and I and my awesome sister hit Shopko and Kohl's this morning and took care of the school clothes. I had my $10 RX coupon at Shopko and a $10 coupon at Kohl's! That definitely helped!! Plus everything I got was on awesome clearance deals.
I came home and took a power nap and then when my husband got home, we loaded up the kids and went down to Smith's in Payson for their birthday open house. I could barely hold my head up from all the sinus congestion, but the adrenaline kicked in as I searched for deals and we made it through.
I had three Friday Freebies piled up that I needed to use and we scoured the store a few times trying to find them. Finally, we gave up and went to check out. The cashier, one of my favorites, helped us find the elusive items. Yay!!
Plus we had a winning raffle ticket and I got to spin the prize wheel! We won a whole roasted chicken! That takes care of dinner!!
Other good deals added to our miserable, but successful adventure!
 Quilted Northern 6.99 ea

Roasted Chicken FREE

Plastic Wrap .99 (clearance)

Chili's Dinner Frozen Entree FREE (upload)

On top of all this, we got a $.20/gallon discount at the gas pump! And we were on empty, so it was perfect!
Glad we got it all done. Now I will collapse! :)

Smith's Open house!

Hey kids! Happy Saturday morning to you!! Big news today! An event you don't want to miss!!!
Smith's is having a huge open house today from noon-2pm. There will be all kinds of freebies, samples and more!!
I came down with a nasty cold and a major fibro flare up, but I will be there anyway!! It is worth the effort!!
Check back later today for my report on Smith's and school shopping with the kids!

I'm going to hit my favorite nursery tomorrow as I still need hedge shrubs. Wish me luck!!!
