Want to see what I found at Target last week?

2015-03-22 11.15.35

There was clearance everywhere at Target this past week.  I could have shopped every day of the week and still found great deals to bring home.  I started off with Tena pantyliners priced at $3.49 each.  Thru 3/21 the purchase of 2 triggered a $5 gift card.  I used (2) $2/1 printable coupons and paid […]

This winter has been ENDLESS.  I sit here in my cozy living room this morning and watch yet more snow fall outside.  It’s crazy windy and icy pellets are dashing themselves to death upon the windows.  Good.  Die, you little bastards.  It seems like forever since I’ve been able to go yard saling.  Sneaking out […]

When secondhand becomes my second choice.

Goodwill came into my life for the first time in 1997, when my oldest daughter Hallee was born.  I wanted a baby swing and got my doors blown off by the price at Toys R Us.  A neighborhood mom mentioned Goodwill and all of the great deals she got there and I immediately recoiled.  Eeewww…used stuff?

If you have the $10/3 Bayer products coupon from last weekends 1/4 SmartSource, there’s more than one way to take advantage of it if you’re at Walmart today…do try to get in there today because the coupon expires 1/11. The big deal to use this coupon on of course is the Bayer.  Walmart has certain […]

So. Much. Stuff.

The calm before the storm.

Do you guys ever struggle with how much to give your children on Christmas?  You know…how much “stuff” is enough?  My girls are pretty good about picking just one main gift that they want the most, and then I add some fun filler items to round it out.  But this year we seem to have […]

Are you using Walmart’s Savings Catcher app?

There are lots of couponing apps that I’ve tried.  Some are good, some too much of a pain to use regularly or with any real success.  I’ve tried Ibotta, Checkout 51 and Savingstar.  But Walmart’s new Savings Catcher app has me pretty excited, and I’m not usually a Walmart shopper, but this is changing up […]
