The Gift of Savings is still going on, so be sure to enter all your receipt information, even if you didn't purchase rebate items.

Noteables this week, include:
Gillette Fusion men's razor $9-$5 SCR-$4 manuf coupon=FREE
Duracell batteries=B3G2 FREE, great for the buy $20 get $10 SCR, don't forget to use the $1.50 manuf coupons that have been in the inserts recently. Time to stock up for all those batteries you'll need for toys Christmas morning! There is also a $2 coupon in the RA flyer which is good on 12 pack, makeing them &7.49 each. Not sure if the B3G2 free deal works with this or not.
Nicorette gum is on sale for $39.99-$5 SCR-$ manuf coupon (I have several, the highest is a $8 value)
The Gillette Fusion razor gift set is also a nice gift for that hard to buy for man at only $5.99 when you use the $4 manuf coupon on it instead of the single razor.

Has triple coupons again this week, so if you didn't use all your coupons under $1 last week, use them up this week. With 2 weeks of triples in a row, who knows when we'll see them again.

Get $10 worth of Pillsbury coupons by signing up on their website.

There is a $5/$25 coupon available on the Wags website. They're changing things up again, making it off a larger amount, and also making it valid on Monday & Tuesday. There's only 1 FAR item for this month, so a good time to get it if you haven't already.

Baby, Let's Go Green!

I had a wonderful lady named Debbie String recently send me several packages of her product, called Fresh Sacks, so I'm giving away a box to 1 lucky reader. They are available at Walgreens, and typically cost $8.99 If you go to her website, there is a $5 rebate on there, which ultimately makes them $3.99 for the box! They are available in boxes of 25, 50 or 250. What's even better, is that they're biodegradeable, so they don't harm the environment (hence the title of this post)!

In addition to the box of Fresh Sacks, I will also send the winner a reuseable shopping bag.

To enter, please leave me a comment. If you subscribe to this blog, then you will receive an extra entry, but you must leave a separate comment telling me that you did so. Be sure that I have a way to contact you, either through your blog and/or an email address.

Contest is open until Sunday, November 24th at 6pm (eastern time). At that point, I will choose the winner using a random number generator. Winner will have until Wednesday to contact me with their mailing information. Good luck!

SUPER Diaper Deal!!!

Thanks to my friend, Meliss, for bringing this to my attention!

Go over to Amazon to score some Huggies diapers, size 1-2, for $0.12 per diaper. Hurry though, not sure how long this deal will last! Too bad my daughter is past this size now, or I'd be all over it!

ETA: It gets even better...We're talking $0.05 per diaper if you spend $25 (2 boxes) you can get a $15 rebate (or Cookie magazine subscription if you so choose, but then your diapers aren't $0.05 each)!
