About Me

My photo
I'm so addicted to couponing and chasing a good deal. Thank goodness I have a wonderful husband We've been married 12 years. (He must love me very much because he puts up with my couponing and low carb cooking)!!! We live in San Antonio, home of the NBA champions, San Antonio Spurs!! I am a big Dallas Cowboys fan and have always admired my favorite player, Roger Staubach. We belong to a Texas Hold 'em Poker League and have made some really good friends while playing poker. I am a proud Grandmother and love spending time with my "munchkins".

Wags deals-Getting paid to shop today at WAGS


I was able to snag all the great deals today-but 1. The fusion razor RR was not printing out today, so I did not do that one.
I did this in 3 transactions and I spent $2.25 cash OOP- for about $35 worth of goodies.
I used $22.50 in RRs and got back $29 in RRs! I used $8.00 in man. qs and $1.20 in Wags qs

CVS
I went to CVS to get the free shampoo(Fruitopia and Viologie w/ coupon from Reinventing Beauty Magazine) and MM lotion and got a big surprise!
They had some great clearance items I snatched up-75% off dinner plate set ($2.25) towel set ($3) 3 sets of 4 plastic glasses ( $ .50) 3 small lamps ($1.25 each). My oldest daughter is moving out this week and needed plates, towels and glasses!! I'm planning to give the lamps as presents after I send in the $2 rebate!

Great Target Deals

I've been to Target 2 times this week. I saw on Attention Target Shoppers that we can get free cat food!
Fancy Feast Appetizers! Look on her blog for details. I've got a boat load of coupons, so I'm off and running with this one.

When I got to Target I saw that ground beef is on sale. The first trip I got regular ground beef for $1.50 a pound. The next trip they didn't have regular, but 85% lean is $1.79 a pound. Not bad!

I grabbed some cheap cheese with the $1/2 Target coupon. I needed some shredded cheese, so I bought 1 pack of shredded cheese for $1.70 and 1 string cheese for $ .40 = $2.10 - $1.00 Q = $1.10 for my cheese. Not too bad. You can also do the deal by getting 2 string cheese for $ .80 use the Q and get them FREE.


I plan to visit Target again manana!

WAGS ROLLING RR for SALLY HANSON

I did not realize that this $5 coupon at Walgreens for Sally Hanson rolls! Just buy 3 more OF THE SAME TYPE polishes and you get another $5 coupon! I did it! It works-the first time I tried I bought 2 of one type and 1 of another type of polish-used a $5 coupon and got back a $3 coupon. So.....I tried again, this time buying 3 of the same type of polish-used a $5 coupons and got back another $5 Q!! Too bad I didn't realize this until today-I read it on I heart wags and thought she was mistaken-but of course I had to try it. At least, we still have Saturday!!

August Drugstore Game Totals

Here's what I did at Wags and CVS this month



Total bought before Qs ---$900

Cash OOP after Qs/EBs/RRs----$122



Increased my RRs from $24 to $52.....so actual cost to me $101 (because I did burn some EBs this month). My OOP would've been a bit lower, but I bought a $25 AMC GC for Christmas and had to pay cash, no EBs. I bought this cuz I got $5 EBs back, so it actually only cost me $20.
