Weekend Savings1/28-1/30

I had gone a few places this weekend, but we were so utterly busy, I didnt get a chance to get pics, but I still wanted to let you guys know everything I got!

I made a quick run into Walgreens and grabbed two Renzuit cones, both I had FREE cone coupons that I had won over at Tammilee Tips, and I also had a coupon for $1.25 off 3 boxes of Jello that I had found on the back of a recipe book at schnucks. Walgreens had their jello on sale for $.50 a box this week, so I got 3 boxes, and used my coupon, and I only pd $.25 for it all!! I was happy and the lady just laughed! lol

I ran by Dollar General yesterday and enjoyed myself in the Christmas Clearance Aisle! I always find myself short of bows, and always forget to get xmas cards until its too late to send them out, but not next year... or quite possibly the next few years! lol  I got 4 bags of bows, equaling 150 bows, and  i believe 4 boxes of xmas cards, and i got like 6 ornaments. I also grabbed some Olay Body Wash that was on sale for $2, and I used my $2 coupons that expired today, so i got those free too! Today is my MIL's b-day, so i had to grab her a card. My lovely total was $5.07! I was excited, as allt he christmas clearance was $.25 each!! 

What did you guys get this weekend!?

Walgreens Deals This Week! *Purchased January 25, 2011*

My Newest Walgreens Venture! 
All This For UNDER $5!!!

Transaction #1 - AquaFresh Kids Toothpaste - no coupon, but the kids needed some new toothpaste and it was on sale for $1.99.
                         Campbells Chicken Noodle Soup - on sale for $.49
                          3 boxes of Jello - on sale for $.50/box
                          Brut Deodorant - on sale for $1.50 and I had a $1 coupon. 

I also had a $3RR from last week making the total OOP for this transaction $1.60

Transaction #2 - (2) 1 Liter Bottles of Crest Pro-Health Complete - They were on sale for $4.99 with a $2 in store coupon, and I had (2) $2 coupons from the 12/26 P&G inserts, making them $.99 each.
                            (4) Hershey's Dark Chocolate with Almonds - Hersheys was on sale this week for $.49 each and I had (2) BOGO for Hershey's Dark Chocolate, making them $.25 each.
                            (1) Listerine Agent Cool Blue Pre Brush Kids Rinse. It was on sale for $2.99 and I had a $1 coupon.
                            (1) Campbell's Soup - on sale $.49

  I also used a $2RR left over from last week, this made the total OOP on this order only $3.30!

Now I must say, there was no one at the cosmetic counter, so I was forced to go up front, where a mgr. looking guy was checking out. This is the first time I had had contact with him, and it was nothing short of negative. I had a BOGO for Stayfree and he refused to take it because it wouldnt scan, so I let him know if he couldnt type it in, I was no longer interested in them, so he threw them down on the floor! Then he was very rude to say the least with the remainder of the transaction! He was pulling items out of bags and checking every little oz. and ct. on my products! Now, I understand, people try to cheat the system, but c'mon! He was being so ignorant and rude. I assume I will walk around aimlessly from here on out until someone shows up at the cosmetics counter!  But overall, I had a great trip! Under $5 spent!!

They will work in the exact opposite way by providing you with an ease of mind approach to laundry.
The Purex Crystals you can use with ease! There is no worrying about it causing build up, or discoloration, or wear on your fabrics. These crystals will:
  •  Preserve the Flame Retardant benefits of your children's clothing
  • Retain your athletic wears wicking ability - which helps draw sweat away from your body
  • Maintain your towels ability to absorb water
  • Keep your white clothing from yellowing and greying
The  Purex Crystals come in three AMAZING scents! Lavender Blossom, Fresh Spring Waters, and Tropical Splash!
The suggested retail price of the Purex Crystals is $3.99-$5.99 depending on your local retailer!

FREE Hartz Crunch and Clean at Schnucks!

Last week there was a coupon for $2 off any size Crunch N Clean Hartz Dog Biscuits, this week Schnucks has them on sale for 2/$4! They will be FREE with coupon!! Great savings and good treats to have around for your favorite dog!

This is a perfect time to introduce you guys to our four legged friend. His name is Karrotz. He is a Dauschand and Pug mix, and really looks like neither one! lol He is an amazing dog and quite well behaved! He will be 3 next month! I cant believe how big he is getting, i remember when he used to be able to run under the coffee table.. and I also remember busting a gut when he realized, the hard way, he was too big to do it anymore! HAHA he was running full force and his poor little head hit the coffee table and knocked him on his butt! haha

This is Karrotz! Just Laying around on his Macy's Blanket he stole from Dad! lol

This is my big baby sleeping away the day!

This is my most fav shot of him when he was a puppy! We live in the country and the bailers had come and cut and bailed the hay in the field and we were walking to the mailbox one day and i decided to put him on top of a bail for a pic. Hes soo adorable! He was so small!! :-(

Have You Ever Heard Of Listia!?

Have you ever seen or heard of listia? Do you like Ebay? Then you may love Listia, like I do! I was looking for ways to score free things that I needed for everyday life, and I found Listia! This site is like Ebay, but instead of bidding with money, you bid with credits! EVERYTHING IS FREE!! (if it has free shipping) Some people do charge shipping on items, but i simply dont bid on them! lol I have scored a TON of free Makeup, Jewelry, Clothing, Toys for Xmas, Household Items, and many others! Its simple, when you join you automatically get 400 credits for signing up! Then, you can list your items you no longer need and get credits! *I would recommend to offer free shipping if you can so you can get the most credits out of it!* Then just ship the item off and receive your credits! Then you use those credits to go bid on anything you want! Its a great system, and I absolutely love the site! I am currently waiting on the new One Swipe Eye Shadow, i believe Mascara?, and some Stain Remover for the carpet! Not to mention all the things I have got to get rid of! haha I cleaned out my jewelry box and got rid of a lot of old jewelry I didnt wear, movies, clothes, makeup, hair items, and currently I have some Scentsy items listed.
