Year to Date savings

Like last year, I began keeping track of the # of coupons I used in each shopping trip, as well as the total amount spent and total amount saved using coupons. Check out last year's numbers here.


In 2009, I spent a total of $8525.96 and saved $7712.22 using coupons. I purchased 4475 items and redeemed 2573 coupons throughout the year.

In addition to my coupon savings, I also tracked rebates I earned $1809.75, and giftcards I redeemed $956.07.


For 2010, I plan on also tracking the amount saved when using re-useable bags, granted this amount won't be high, but every little bit helps, not to mention it's GREAT for the environment. I am also going to change the way I track my giftcards, because I know for a fact that I've redeemed more than what I posted, just didn't track where (fast food purchases mostly). So, instead of tracking how much I redeem, I will track them as I receive them.

Neutreogena Triple Moisture cream lather shampoo

I bought this product a while back, when it was FAR at Rite Aid, and it's just been sitting in my linen closet, waiting to be the "chosen one" and moved to the shower area. Well, let me tell you, I've found a new favorite shampoo! I love the way it smells, the way it lathers so nicely, and that it doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy like some other shampoos do.

According to the website, this shampoo is made of 3 natural ingredients: olive, which penetrates to the center, meadowfoam seed that moisturizes the middle, and sweet almond covers the surface. It's "salon approved" and available in shampoo, conditioner, leave in cream, shine serum & hair mask.

Best Deal Magazines

If you are still wondering what to get that hard to buy for person on your Holiday shopping list, consider a magazine subscription....You can buy the latest issue & wrap it up nicely with a cute little card letting the recipient know to expect an issue each month in the mail.

I just purchased several subscriptions at Best Deal Magazines for under $5 each! At that price, you can even afford to buy one for yourself. If you decide to make a purchase, make sure you go through Ebates so you receive up to 10% cash back. Also, don't forget a promo code for additional savings:

  • MAINT15 = 15% off most titles
  • MNDSS1213 = $5/$30 (exp 12/13/09)
  • MQQSS1213 = $7.50/$40 (exp 12/13/09)

$5 magazine subscriptions

From Thanksgiving Day through December 1, Amazon is offering select magazine titles for only $5! If you're not interested in any of them, perhaps you know someone who would like one as a gift! Go here to check it out!

Black Friday sales ads

Do you brave the crowds and shop on Black Friday? I do....sometimes. This year I'm able to since hubby is watching the kidlets....I'm soooo excited! We make it an entire day of shopping and bonding; my mom, aunts, female cousins, and even grandmom. From the crack of dawn (or before) to late at night....

Do you research the Black Friday ads online or in print prior to Black Friday? Do you buy a newspaper specifically on Thanksgiving Day so you can peruse the ads after filling your belly with turkey & stuffing? I bought a newspaper yesterday and there was a sign on the rack stating that Thanksgiving Day's paper would be $1.50 (double the regular price of 75c)! I guess if the demand is there, they can raise the price, but geeze....

HotCouponWorld has a survey in regards to the Black Friday ads, and you're invited to participate. You could win a giftcard up to $100 good at Amazon. Go here for more details & to complete the survey.

Celebrity status

I was in Rite Aid one evening last week, and there was an elderly lady in line in front of me. Well, when I heard her total ($22.xx), I offered her a $5/$20 coupon to use since I had some extra. She was very gracious for it, and thanked me several times. The cashier who was ringing her up, proceeded to tell the woman about how I am known in there for getting a cart full of merchandise for little to no out of pocket expense. The elderly then turned to me again and asked "Are you the one with the blog?" A smile came across my face, and the cashier busted out in a laugh, not knowing anything about the blog (I enlightened her later). I answered the lady "Yes, yes I am" and kind of chuckled to myself, because that was the first time that an outside individual had mentioned my "celebrity status" without knowing who I was.

Factory Card and Party Outlet coupon

If you share your email address with Factory Card & Party outlet, you will receive a $10/$30 on your next purchase.

Dollar store trash & finds

I came across this article tonight on msn.com, and found it quite interesting. Click here to see what one author thinks are good & bad things to buy from Dollar stores. I won't say that I agree with everything he lists as "bad" buys, but for the most part, I do.

Do you shop Dollar stores? If so, what things do you think are a waste if bought there? What are your favorite things to buy there?

Halloween costume ideas?

Halloween is coming up fast...in fact, in just a little more than a month to be exact. It's hard to believe, because so soon after that comes Thanksgiving & Christmas.

What are your kids dressing up as for Halloween? Mine haven't made up their mind yet, but ideas have been tossed around (by my soon to be 4 year old son) of Darth Vader and Tinkerbell (that's what she was last year) for his little sister. He even thought about his daddy & I dressing up too, using a Scooby Doo theme, but Daddy wasn't too keen on that idea. Lucas is pretty set on being Darth Vader, so I'm off to find the best deal on the costume & accessories. Now I just have to figure out what Caroline will be...

The site called CouponTrunk is a neat little place, which allows you to search for coupon codes for just about any store imaginable. In fact, here's a post which is all about Halloween costume coupons for kids.

FreshDeals--price comparison website

If you do any amount of shopping online, you have got to check out this new website I came across the other day! It's called FreshDeals and allows you to search for anything (from computers to clothing to beauty items) you are shopping online for in order to find the best deal.

For example, if you check out my recent post about the AllerEase allergy pillow case cover I won, you can go to FreshDeals to find the cheapest place to purchase more, which is just what I did after only a few days of using the one I won. There's a place where you can look at questions others have asked about the particular product you're searching for, even adding your own response should you so choose. Not only can you search by product name, but also by price range.

Now that I am aware of this great website, you can bet that I'll be using it whenever I shop online, especially since the Christmas shopping season is coming up so fast! Check it out for yourself, it's bound to save you some money!

Product Review: AllerEase pillow protector

I recently won a $25 gift card & a standard size AllerEase pillow protector from a local radio station. I couldn't wait to get it home to try it out since we all suffer from allergies...I just had to decide who got to try it out. I ultimately decided on my daughter, since she seems to suffer the most from allergies while sleeping.



Did you know that the average bed contains 10 million dust mites, and the average pillow increases 10% in weight every 2 years due to dust mite feces alone? Ewwww! Asthma sufferers who are sensitive to allergens can benefit from limiting exposure to common household allergens, which the AllerEase line of products assits with.



The AllerEase pillowcase zippers around your pillow, so you don't have to worry about it coming off during the night. It's made of breathable material, which provides maxium allergen filtration while allowing air to move through the fabric, which means no sweating due to sleeping on a hot pillow, and no worries of your face sticking to a plastic covered pillow.



The AllerEase pillowcase acts as a barrier to microscopic particles, cat & dog dander, and fungal & mold spores, all of which can act as allergy triggers. It has the Good Houseleeping seal of approval and is also recommended by allergists.

After only a few days of using the pillow cover, I can already tell a difference in Caroline's sleeping & breathing. She's not so restless, and not as sweaty as she was before. As for her breathing, it doesn't seem so loud when I go in to check on her, which I can only attribute to the allergens in her pillow no longer agravating her while sleeping. Thank you, AllerEase!

I'm all about saving money, even on something like vehicle upkeep. Since it's something that you know you have to do in order to prolong the life of your vehicle, why not save a few extra bucks on it?!

Well, Jiffy Lube has a new rewards program that allows you to do just that, and without any coupons or cards! Simply go here, register each vehicle and start saving. I signed up this past weekend, and it's just in time, because my van is due for an oil change.

Pink Ribbon Gum Balls

Breast cancer has touched many of us in one way or another. I know, I know...Breast Cancer Awareness month isn't until October, but I just found this item and think it's an AWESOME fundraising opportunity for just about anyone, and not just during October.

For a start-up cost of a mere $183, you get a bulk case of gumballs, chrome stand and a 60" Pink Ribbon Gumball machine. You can earn it back, plus some with only one emptying of your machine! With only 6 vends a day, your machine will empty twice a year, so higher traffic areas have the potential to earn much more, and with little to no maintenance. Places that cater to women in particular (salons, nail shops, massage parlors, etc) may have a higher success rate since breast cancer is more common in women.

If you're not interested in a gumball machine, or can't afford the start up cost, entertain the idea of selling individually wrapped 4 packs of the Pink Ribbon Gumballs for $1. Many schools sell candy at some point during the year, so this is a great alternative to the same old boring chocolate candy bars. An easy way to sell would be to set up a table at the sports games or have them available in the concession stand for fans to buy. Again, this selling format requires little to no effort on your part, but allows you to reap the rewards all while support Breast Cancer Awareness.

How to find FREE stuff!

Thanks to the internet, it’s pretty simple to find a wide variety of products & services that are completely FREE, without much effort on your part. Obviously, scoring free things are great for your purse, but are also great for the environment, because it cuts down on waste that ends up in the landfills.

There are dozens of websites dedicated to helping you find a new home for your un-wanted items, such as FreeCycle & Craigslist. You can even tap into the Local Reuse application on your iPhone for another outlet. Before you throw it out, remember, “One man’s trash is another’s treasure!”
