It's a CONTEST!.

I am moving from blogger to wordpress and I need a new website name.  If I choose your website name suggestion you win a $5.00 Starbucks gift card.  My husband is winning at this point!  Post your suggestions in the comments section.  Good luck! Publish Post

Ok, so this is VERY exciting news...

Kmart is doubling Manufacturer coupons! This has made my week. If you have been clipping coupons at all over the past couple of weeks, this is a GREAT opportunity to get several items at free or nearly free after the coupon double. I went to Kmart last night to see how the double coupon deal works, it was so incredibly easy. The register automatically deducts the coupon a second time, that's it. I am now prepared to go back and really stock up!

A few examples of items I purchased last night in my trial run:

Scrubbing Bubbles Flushable Wipes or Foam Cleaner - On sale 2/$5 w/$2 off/1 = $0.50 ea
Herbal Essence Shampoo & Conditioner - On sale 2/$6 w/ $2 off/2 = $1.o0 ea
Pledge Multi-Surface Cleaner - Reg. Price $4.19 w/ $2 off/1 = $0.19 ea
Secret Deodorant - On Sale $2.33 w/ $1.00 off/1 = $0.33 ea
Participating Kelloggs Cereals On Sale 4 for $10 (get a $5 Kmart Gift Card) w/$1.50 off/2 = $0.87 ea
Oust Surface & Air Sanitizer $3.79 w/$2 off/1 = FREE
Dry Idea Deodorant $3.99 w/$2 off/ = FREE

A couple more things...
  1. Make sure you pick up your Kmart Spring Savings Booklet. I found mine in the health and beauty section, lots of GREAT manufactures coupons inside, only 2 are for Kmart only.

    Common Sense With Money
    has a great list of all the coupons in this coupon booklet, plus a ton of other great articles!

  2. Sign up online at for even more savings! They sent me a coupon for $5 a purchase of $50 or more, which of course I would never spend out of pocket but this is good BEFORE manufactures coupons.

My savings today...

Today was a great deal day, I have been meaning to get to the store for a few days and I finally got to run out today.  I went to Safeway, Walgreens, and Longs.  I bought things we needed, will need, and a couple of things I wanted :)  I am going to post the pictures below but if you want details about how much and where I purchased any of the items just ask, I'd love to share my deals!  The kids are going to be knocked off their feet when they see that mommy bought "Sunday Sugar Cereal" again!


TOTAL OOP (out of pocket) $43.93

I earned $17.00 in RR (register rewards) basically $17 towards a purchase of $17 or more for Walgreens, and I don't have to use them all at once.  

So, my total cost for the day was $26.93

Want some coupons?

I have an overload of coupons, I simply cannot use them all.  Does anyone want them?  I have an envelope FULL of great coupons!  First person to comment gets them.  I hope they can be useful to someone.  Remember, cash and coupons is the best way to keep your money where it belongs, in your pocket!
