FREE Home Depot Kids Workshop Saturday, Aug 1st.

Tomorrow FREE Home Depot Kids Workshop!

Take the kids and head over to Home Depot Saturday (Aug 1st) morning! What a GREAT project..even a good gift to save for Christmas for someone they love. Once you get it home they can paint/decorate it to their personal style.. adding trim, stickers, wooden shapes, buttons, feathers, glitter... or? Anyone have some great ideas?

They will be making a Message Center between 9 and noon. Your child will get an apron and a pin after they complete their craft. I suggest getting their on the earlier end in order to get a pin and apron. Sometimes those run out fast. Enjoy!

Thanks AMY for the info!

Stylish Stork Going Out of Business Sale!

I'm sad, but wanted to share that The Stylish Stork, a gently used online kids resale shop is going out of business. I placed an order a few days ago and everything arrived in pristine condition in a big poly-bag. Shipping was only $7 for over 20 items I bought for my 3 girls. There are still a few things left..Maternity, Girls, Boys ... don't forget to write down or use the discount code on the home page. Visit the Stylish Stork Resale Online to save 50% off all (already really low) listed prices today! Bye-Bye Stylish..I'll miss you! :(

Warmth, Tracey C.

Cheap or FREE Huggies Flushable Wipes @ Walmart??

Hey all, remember my earlier post about CHEAP or FREE Flushable Moist Wipes from Huggies? Well, I'm just curious if anyone has found a better deal on these flushable moist wipes? I'd like to tell others the best places to buy these with their coupons for $3/2 from the inserts. Any comments would be appreciated! Thanks!

Tracey C.

*****PREVIOUS POST******

Thanks again to AMY at Who Said Nothing in Life is FREE?? for pointing out that the 42 count soft packs of the Pull-Ups Flushable Wipes are $1.64 at Walmart and there was a $3/2 coupon in this past Sunday's (7/19) Smart Source insert. That makes them possibly only 14 cents plus tax each!!! What a GREAT deal! These coupons are selling for a pretty penny on Ebay right now!

Note: Check your Walmart or if it is far, call first to see what your local store price is (prices are regional!) and if your Walmart carries it. However, keep in mind, some employees may not know! Check the baby/toddler section, yes, but also I have had luck finding flushable wipes and regular wipes in the regular beauty isle near the kids washes (like suave body wash for instance).

My subtotal was $3.87 and my tax $.72= $4.59 OOP PLUS I got $1 RR for the Tide!

$.38 Cereal @ Target!! WOW!

Lots of Goodies At TARGET!

Ok, I had FUN getting my Apple Jacks and Cocoa Krispies for only $.38 today at Target!! On sale through Saturday for $1.88, I had several of the $1.50/1 coupons that came out a few weeks back..some people only got $1.00 off 1 coupons, and $.88 is still a GREAT deal!

Also, I recently got cheap CORN POPS with my $1.50 coupons and a BOGO sale. Inside the specially marked box was a little plastic pack of coupons for "breakfast savings." These included a $1/1 Mini Wheats coupon AND a $1 off ANY MILK when you buy Cocoa Krisipies, Special K...some others. So I also got a BUCK off my gallon of milk!

In addition, I had two $1/1 ANY DOVE deodorant and Target has a great TRAVEL SIZE selection. They had the GO FRESH Dove deodorant for $.97.. so I got 2 free. I also had two $1/1 Coupons for ANY Hefty One Zip product, so again, in the travel sized section (trial sizes) I got two 8 count bags, perfect for travel needs, for FREE!

Found a 500 pack of printer paper for $2.50, great price! Also got a Starbucks Frappuccino for only $.97 with a $1/1 coupon. I love the vanilla flavor!

Less than $10 for the food/grocery items... paper was office/business use and came out of my other account.

What freebies do YOU get at TARGET in their tri
al/travel size? I've heard these are good buys with coupons if you have coupons that say on ANY, usually $1/1:
  • Dove Deodorant
  • Secret Deodorant
  • Tide single use
  • Hefty One-Zip
  • Ziploc
  • Right Guard
  • Axe products for men
  • dove soap(use dove facial product coupon)
  • St. Ives
Various others. Of course, depending on what coupons are out, you can get some great free things to try. It is Targets corporate policy to take a coupon, even if it is more than the price of the item. The policy is to not give overage/money back, but they can adjust down the value of the coupon if the coupon is for the right item! I don't usually get more than 2 of anything, but I do like to save them up and either donate them to the local shelter, add them to goodie bags for friends, try them myself or just give them away!

I LOVE Publix!! (Have I said that?) Great shop!

All Our Goodies From our Publix Shopping Trip!

My Hubby and I went to Publix this evening armed with coupons and two carts. We had two $3 off a $30 purchase coupons and wanted to use them both tonight, so we loaded up our own carts to check-out seperately instead of making two trips to the store at different times. I took pics for you to see how we did, look at all that great stockpile stuff!!! Here is what we had coupons for:

A1 Marinade $2/1: ON SALE B1G1F ... FREE
Muellers Pasta $1/2: ON SALE B1G1F... $.29 for every 2 boxes
$3 off any $30 purchase from Publix
Smart Balance MILK FREE w/purchase of Smart Balance Butter
**(Butter on sale for BOGO for $3.09, so we got two butters each and two free products each... all for the price of $3.09 for the butters and free items)
Smart Balance Peanut Butter FREE w/purch. of SB Butter (had 2 more for FREE popcorn and another FREE milk half gallon)

That's it! There was apparently some overage for using the $2/1 A1 coupons.... about $1.10 for every 2 bottles. I got 10 and my hubby got 10... so about $5 on each order, plus our $3 coupons..

His total was: $7.XX and my total was $10.XX This includes the purchase for New drip trays for the electric coils on our Stove at home.. 4 new trays on clearance for $5.25...We got steak, bananas, milk, peanut butter, butter, marinade, lots and lots of pasta, hummus, pita bread, stuffing and all that you see in the pics! yay! We saved over $110.00 combined (per the receipt), though we would never have bought this much without the deals. We will share and be stocked up for awhile on pasta and marinade and got our other items for cheap.. only $17.XX for our entire purchase! How cool is that? Oh, and guess what we had for dinner? PASTA!

By the way, I did have a cashier who didn't want to take 2 coupons for the B1G1F items, he said I could use 1 coupon for every 2.. I told him that was incorrect (I knew the policy) and he got a manager, who said "Yep, 1 coupon PER item, even if it is B1G1F, about 3 cashiers were gathered. I was glad to have it cleared up, now the cashier knows the policy and wont feel uneasy next time, like he might be doing something wrong.

After I was done, the cashiers/managers (2 very young, nice gentlemen) and now a tie/dress shirted manger (district? store?) were all talking about my transaction. The big guy (in title only!) was shaking his head and gesturing, so I went over to ask that all was ok. I said, we still agree on the verdict, right? He smiled and said, paraphrased of course, Absolutely, I was just educating them on the coupon policy. We do not punish customers when we have a sale. You have 2 products, you can use 2 coupons (as per coupon requirements, a $1/2 would be for 2 items), no problem. He then said we want our
customers to take advantage of the B1G1F sales, and we encourage coupon use. We want you to save money! He also told me they don't lose money on those sales (not for coupon use, but otherwise) anyway, that if they come out behind, there are certain contracts with manufacturers who will reimburse Publix rather than let them take a loss. Wow!
He said they don't do it for most of the other local stores in our area like Winn Dixie or Sweetbay because they don't sell anywhere near as much as Publix does in volume.


This was great because so many times cashiers worry that they will get in trouble, or can't take a coupon, so to see him explaining it in such detail, was a breath of fresh air. It was wonderful and re-confirmed my belief that Publix is the best store ever! ALWAYS clean, always stocked, always pleasant. Publix, we LOVE YOU!! :)

Anyway, I thought you guys might appreciate that information/story. I hope I didn't bore you! Enjoy the pics!

We ordered this tie for Father's Day from them (took couple weeks to get, so order with plenty of time) My photo of it isn't the clearest, but the tie turned out PERFECT! We loved it and my Hubby was tickled. It is hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil with our 3 girls. It was pretty simple to design using their online editor. Isn't it cute? On the back we were able to just do a negative of the image and it was a neat way to make sure the back wasn't plain. What do you think? He got lots of compliments on it and the girls had fun helping me do the photo set up. I used a sale offer and got the tie for only $6.99 and FREE SHIPPING! Wow, what a bargain that was! Here it is, though they both look like the front, it is just how they displayed it, the back of the tie was not white, but the back was the negative print you see below.
This is the front of the tie.
