This Weeks Deals

I had a pretty good week shopping this week. I used $35 of my Amazon Gift Cards that I got for FREE through SwagBucks to get a Water Filter for the Fridge for Free. I know a water filter isn't exactly sexy, but I needed it and didn't have to spend any cash on it, so I am happy.

I also hit the lotto at the library and got 4 books that I have been patiently waiting for.

As far as shopping goes, here's the skinny:

CVS - 2 Crest Pro-enamel Mouthwashes, Starburst Candy, Gallon of Milk = Overage of $2.57 back in ECB's

Market Street - Bacon, Eggs, Double Stuffed Oreos, organic strawberies, and a lobster tail for $6.96

Kroger - 6 cans of Pillsbury Biscuits, Non-Stick Foil, Peanut Butter, Jelly, 5 Kraft Mac and Cheese, Cheese slices, 10 Ramen Noodles, Rice = $10.29 paid with gift card from RX transfer

Walgreens - Dove Mens Body Wash, 3 John Frieda Shampoos, Ear Drops, 8x10 photo collage, 8x10 frame, ear drops = $4.21

The photo collage and frame were for Big Chocolate's Valentines day gift. The photo was free and the frame was $4.99, so I got all of the other stuff for free and had a few cents of overage to apply to the frame purchase.

Tom Thumb - I bought one Super King Kong Mega Mega Pack of Bounty and one of Charmin. The paper towels were for the office, so I am writing that $13 off as a business expense. I got a $10 Catalina back, so I basically got our ginourmous package (48 rolls) of toilet paper for $3. I also got 2 pounds of butter for $3.

Target - I got lucky and found some chuck steaks marked down and got 3 pounds for about $4. I am going to cut these down into stew meat and make Paula Deen's Beef Stew Recipe. I have every thing else I need in the fridge and it is super easy - even I have yet to destroy it.


  1. This constantly amazes me. I have never once even attempted to use a coupon in my life, but I think it might be time to start up with this saving business of yours.

    And I think I want to do the swagbucks deal too.

  2. I would be happy to get a fridge filter for free too, those things are so freakin expensive!


Don't be a wimp. Talk to me!
