a few deals

I went by CVS and bought a few school supplies. I don't need them but they were free after ECB and so I got them. I had a $5 ECB for taking a survey so used that to pay. I went through the line 2 times to minimize my cash outlay. I got 2 pairs 5" blunt scissors, 2 bottles glue, 3 packs of pens and 2 70 count notebooks all free after ecb. I also bought a clearance headband for 55 cents and a box of Alavert for 55cents. I get allergy symtpoms on occasion so thought it a good deal. If I can get orgazined, CVS also has the photobooks on sale for $7.99 with $7.99 back in ECB so I would like to get a coupon to give as gifts.

In the mail I got my rebate check for buying the blue bunny ice cream back in May. I am going to use it on this deal There is a try me free rebate and a $1 coupon to print so you actually come out ahead plus have a free meal of Tyson skillet creations.

I am stopping by Wal-Mart in the morning to pick up some free water with this Nestle coupon Wal-Mart has the 6pks on sale for $1 and so that makes them free. You can print the coupon 2 times so you get 2 six packs for tax. I printed mine Saturday but haven't been online to post.

Also sign up for a coupon for a free Venom energy drink from Dr Pepper.

Another deal for anyone who has gotten their free chocolate coupon from Mars. Rite Aid has Mars on sale for b1g1 so you can get 2 for nothing.

Join the Wakin'Up Club

Possible samples and coupons from Folgers

Get a coupon booklet worth over $50 from Kraft If you aren't a member it will prompt you to join. I am practically a member of every company site out there.

So far this week I have bought 12 bags of shredded cheese and 13 blocks of cheese at Kroger. After the $4 coupon it was roughly 20¢ a package. I also went by K-Mart who was having a clearance on toys. It was 50% off the clearance price. I got my grandson a playset for Christmas that has animals and makes sounds and does a lot of different little stuff for $18.50. It was supposed to be $75, I got my granddaughter a Ba Ba Baby Elmo for $8.50. Thats another Christmas present. I also got her a Tigger Bounce chair for $4.50. I honestly didn't know it was a bounce chair. I just wanted a little kid chair for her to sit on at the house. Its so cute.

Get your name on Dale Jr's Amp car

I will start out on an odd note. Its not very warm for it to be July in West Virginia. Its only in the 70's and I am freezing for some reason so had to light the stove to take the chill out of the air. This is crazy. It was cold and snowy for months and months and now its not even warm for summer.

I thought this was pretty cool. I am a Jimmy Johnson fan myself but still this is cool. Sign up if you aren't an Amp member and then you can have your name on the 88 car in the Amp 500 race. Sign in here.

Also for any who are interested in actually money not gift cards, you can now redeem swagbucks for paypal cash. It takes 80 swagbucks for $5 in PayPal but I prefer the Amazon gift certs since that makes me feel like I am buying presents for nothing.

Wednesday Weigh In

I missed last Wednesday, mostly because I hadn't lost anything. I got on the scales this morning and am down 2 more lbs. I've been a bit depressed so haven't felt much like posting lately.

I have been in a lot of pain from my back lately so I thought this was a cool deal
Sign up and get 3 sample size oinmnents here for pain.

In the mail yesterday I got a box of Nature Valley Nut Clusters There were 4 bags, 1) roasted cashews with granola and a touch of honey, these are my favorites, 2) honey roasted peanuts with granola and a touch of honey 3) roasted almonds with granola and a touch of honey, and 4)nut lovers with granola and a touch of honey (my second favorite). These were a freebie from MyBlogSpark. These are the people who sponsor a lot of the giveaways you see on other blogs. If you have a blog I recommend you set up an account with them. BTW if you go to the Nature Valley page there is a $1 coupon to print off the nut clusters at the bottom of the page.
I also got a couple of coupons off of Marlboro cigarette's. I don't smoke but they are having a daily prize contest. Last year I got a sleeping bag from them. My sister won a tent once from them. I also got the Veggie Tales dvd I ordered. Since my granddaughter's birthday just past I am going to save it for either Halloween or Christmas.
