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".

Visiting a 99 cent only store


I decided to visit a 99 cent only store yesterday. I got some good bargains on fresh produce. I spent $8 on my buys. Not bad! I decided to try the ground chicken since it was 99 cents and I couldn't resist the cute garden bag. I'm thinkin of filling it with goodies for a gift bag!

Spending extra Register Rewards? Need a filler ? Think of Walgreens as your mini grocery store

My Mom would be so proud. She was a loyal Walgreens customer, even without the deals and coupons. This one is for you Mom.
2 years ago I would have never said this.......Oh how I love Walgreens. This isn't a commercial for WAGS, it's just the truth. I've said before that if I could buy all my groceries at Walgreens I would. I know their grocery aisle is limited, but there are plenty of items there to make a pantry more full. For those that are not familiar with couponing and how to take advantage of the Walgreens deals, this might sound totally absurd. When I have some register rewards that are expiring and there aren't any deals, or I need a filler to make my deal work, I love to buy groceries- the items on sale of course, Walgreens regular priced grocery items tend to be pricey. Then I don't spend the cash (or Target gift card) OOP at the dreaded grocery store. I save my cash for fresh produce and meats.

I've been able to make dinner from my Walgreens stockpile on many occasions. It might not be the most nutritious meal, but it usually isn't too bad. We love tuna salad. Tuna noodle casserole isn't too bad. Walgreen's has canned tuna on sale very often. We love grilled cheese sandwiches. I've been known to buy american cheese, bread, and the butter or margarine at Walgreens. Like chips with your sandwich? No problem. You can find all kinds of chips. Add a can of soup that you can get on sale w/ coupons and you have yourself a nice and fast dinner for 2. Don't forget the crackers for your soup. I've been able to get my share of cheap or free crackers at Walgreens. I often grab a canned ham when it is on sale for grilled hammy melt sandwiches or to put in macaroni salad or even an omelet. Of course you can pick up the macaroni and eggs at Walgreens too. Hormel's corned beef can be found on sale at Walgreens. Corned beef hash-yum! (Have to find a potato somewhere else though.)Then there's the bottled Ragu Spaghetti sauce. We can have pasta 1 time a week if we want with all the Ragu I've grabbed at Walgreens and that I have in my stockpile. I've picked up tons of tomato sauce when it's on sale for a filler. You always need tomato sauce! When the canned veggies go on sale, I stock up, buying one can at a time to use as a filler in my deal. I pick up a can of fruit or mushrooms the week they are on sale for future use-almost always as a filler.
We've even had a bowl of cereal for dinner a time or two-cereal and milk from Walgreens of course. You can always pick up a frozen Red Baron pizza-I've picked them up for $1.99. I always look in the freezer section in case they put something on clearance. I've stocked up on shredded and block cheese, cream cheese,sour cream, heavy whipping cream, lunch meat and bacon when it was on sale-with coupons of course. Coffee creamer sometimes goes on sale and so does Splenda for your coffee. You can grab peanut butter and jelly when it goes on sale for a yummy snack. Want some ice cream? No problemo- sometimes Bluebell goes on sale and most Walgreens carries no sugar added. Would you rather have some nuts to snack on? I always pass by the nut section! They are a grab and go snack on the run!
If you need some basic spices, Walgreens puts them on sale for 2/$1. Pudding and jello, no problem. Juice, tea, soda, water, and now beer and wine-can get it all at Walgreens. I'm not sure if the spirits ever go on sale though. Our Walgreens in San Antonio carries tortillas- flour and corn! Last week, I saw bags of naval oranges near the cashier!
So, here it is. Get your groceries at Walgreens when they are on sale, a little at a time, as a filler or with money maker RRs when the deals are few and far between. You can't go wrong. It makes going to the grocery store so much easier on your pocketbook.

Some Walgreens deals

While surfin the blogs, I discovered that the $5/2 Q for the benedryl deal is working! So buy 2 24 ct. benedryls @ $4.49 each, use the $5/2 Q = $3.98 and get $5RR! It's a moneymaker.

Men's Schick disposable Quattros are spitting out 2 RRs, a $1 and a $3! This is a MM if you have a $4 or a $3 man. Q. They are on sale this week for $5.99. It's a moneymaker.

Both of these deals work, I tried them!

What didn't work for me was the Hallmark card deal. I bought 8 of the small $ .60 cards and did not get a RR so I returned them. I don't really like to return things, but this deal ate up a $5 RR and I would rather get the $ .99 birthday cards anyway.
I bought the cheaper cards because I read that you could get a $5 RR wyb them and that would make them FREE. oh well.............

With some of my MM RRs this week, I've stocked up on Kraft american cheese, on sale this week for $2.50 and I've scored another bag of natural Almonds (w/20% more) for $4.99. We use lots of american cheese, cuz we love grilled cheese sandwiches. I use the almonds in my low carb cooking. I grind them up and make my own almond flour.

I've found some little lunch sized Lays potato chips/doritos/cheetos- 3 bags for a $1 that are good for fillers. I'm always looking around for something cheap to make my coupon count and item count match. Darlin Dan loves potato chips with his tuna sandwiches :-).

Freezer cooking with some chicken

HEB has had bone-in chicken breast on sale this week for $ .99 a pound. I bought 3 packages and I've been getting my list of recipes together in order to make some make ahead and freeze meals. I have all the necessary ingredients in my cupboard/stockpile. Here are some recipes I have in mind:


1. King Ranch Chicken
2. Crockpot taco chicken (can be used for various quick meals)
3. Chicken noodle casserole
4. Impossibly easy italian chicken pie or quiche in a bag
5. Southest Asian curry

Now I'm hoping for a deal on ground beef so that I can do the same thing with ground beef. I would like to be able to eat from the freezer during the week. Darlin Dan loves sandwiches for dinner, but sometimes lunch is on the go and I'm wanting more than a sandwich for dinner.

Sunday Shopping at CVS



I didn't do too much damage at CVS today. I got some free body washes (after Qs and EBs), $ .99 razor (after Q and EBs), and a dollar bag of chips! Not very much to brag about.

Sunday Shopping



While Darlin Dan was golfin, I was shopping at WAGS.....I bought $130.39 worth for $12.50 cash OOP! I started out with $60 in RRs and now have $65. I used $29.50 in man. coupons and flipped $89 worth of RRs. The personal hair trimmers were the hardest items to find today. I ended up "visiting" 7 Wags today. All of these are located pretty close to home. Not only did I get the deals, freebies, and money makers, I was able to buy 3 Sunday papers, 7 cans of cat food, 4 boxes of my Darlin's favorite Arnold Palmer tea mixes, 3 packs of AA batteries, 2 containers of smart balance butter spread, 1 mazola olive oil, 1 can chicken broth, and 2 rolls of aluminum foil. Just these "extras" add up to over $30 and I spent $12.50 in cash.

By the way, most of the Stayfree pads are being donated to Darlin's work. He works at a non profit organization for challenged adults. The young adult women that attend the "Day Hab" need these items and it is an honor and a privilege to pack them up for Darlin Dan to take with him. I plan to stockpile the trimmers, skintimates, and plackers for gift baskets. Isabel, the cat will eat the cat food ;). We will use the batteries in our Wii remotes. Darlin Dan will drink the tea mix every day! We always need the butter spread, olive oil and chicken broth for the pantry. With summer coming up, you can never have enough aluminum foil for the grill!! We all know what the extra Sunday papers are for-more coupons.

I don't usually get to have marathon shopping trips and this today really tired me out. I'm boiling some chicken breasts I picked up on sale at HEB for $1 a pound. I'm making chicken spaghetti for dinner and I'm planning to freeze a couple of chicken dishes for the future.

Walgreens Scenarios

I'm heading out early Sunday. Darlin Dan is in a golf tournament, so I'm off on my quest bright and early. I have a heap of $5 RRs from the Vitamin D deal, so I plan to use them to do one of these. Things usually don't go my way, so of course I will have to be flexible and adjust my scenarios if needed.

#1
1.Stayfree maxi pads $2.99
2. plackers dental floss $2
3. Skintimate $2.99
= $7.98
- man. Q $2 Stayfree, $ .50 plackers
=$5.48 + tax
use my $5RR from vitamin D
pay whatever is left
get back $3RR, $2RR, $3RR

#2
1. Clio body trim $4.99
2. Walgreens foil $ .59 in ad Q-not sure of reg. price
= $5 .58+ tax after in ad q
-$5 RR
= pay whatever is left
get back $5RR

I plan to use some MM RRs to get some energizer batteries ($2.99 w/ in ad and use $1 Q from 3/28ss), Smart balance butter spread ($3.29-BOGO this week and use $1/2 Q from 3/21rp and some Pepsi-depending on the deal.

Not all Starbucks are created equal

This last Sunday, Darlin Dan and I went to Super T to pick up a few odds and ends for the week. This Super Target has a Starbucks inside. I offered to buy my Darlin a Starbucks with my Starbucks gift card. Little did I know, Starbucks stores that are inside another store, do not go by the same "rules" as free standing Starbucks. I have a registered Starbucks gift card and I get points and perks for using this card (why else would I use a gift card?). This Starbucks did not honor the perks. I don't know if I got a point for using it. I'm not holdimg my breath. I did not get my sugar-free flavoring for free and was told that "at least I was able to use my Starbucks gift card". I was not able to get a stamp towards my free pound of coffee either. Same reason.
Well, I've already sent my comments about this off to Starbucks. I'll let you know if I get a reply. I'm going to free standing Starbucks only from now on!

$1 Printer Ink Refill at Walgreens on Thursday

I really need ink for my printers! I'll be at Walgreens on Thursday for sure. (At Walgreens it looks free Skintimate, Clio hair trimmer, plackers dental flossers, and Stayfree next week......stay tuned. You could have a MM if you have any Bayer glucose monitor Qs left)

Sunday, April 18, 2010

Did you get your free reusable bag from Target?



Darlin Dan and I went to Super T this morning for a few essentials. We got this cute, free reusable bag. We spent $8 on my GC for bread, a steak for dinner, american cheese, bologna, and silk almond milk. The steak was on sale!! It had been remarked from over $4 to $1.73 because it went on sale today. Since it was almost a pound of boneless steak, Darlin Dan and I split it for dinner.

EXCUSE ME WALGREENS

I had a small problem at a "foreign" Walgreens today. (We stopped at this store coming home from our son's house.) They would not allow me to use a manu. coupon and an IVC from the little coupon book that comes out every month. My pat answer when I have some issue with an item or the cashier is being a little ignorant, is just take off the item. Darlin Dan was with me today and he is always amazed how I keep my cool and continue on with my purchase. When we got in the car I told my darlin that tomorrow was another day and my FAVORITE Walgreens stores are waiting for me! I have plenty of coupons and I'm not afraid to use them!
This is the first time I've had a problem with using a man. coupon and a Walgreen's coupon for an item. I looked up Walgreens policy that "I HEART WAGS" has posted on her website and sure enough, this is allowed. I will print out this policy for future problems that might arise!
By the way, I was trying to buy the BIC hybrid razor system. I bought one earlier today at one of my regular Sunday Walgreens stops and I used the $3 man. coupon and the $1 IVC from the booklet, making the razor $ .99. It's a nice looking razor with refill blades included.
Okay, my rant is over......

Another confession

I confess, I went back to Target and spent my Walgreen's refund on 4 more GC deals. I now have 5 more boxes of Special K granola cereal, 4 more razors, 1 big spray bottle of Scrubbing Bubbles shower cleaner, and 2 cans of Scrubbing Bubbles for.... $5.13 cash OOP and $20 in GCs and got back $20 in GCs. My receipt said I saved $60! I think I put my refund to good use.

Monday, April 12, 2010

I got a refund at Walgreens!

Okay, I confess. I wanted to try returning a Biore deal that I did 2 weeks ago before it went on sale. This bag of Biore product had been hitching a ride in my car ever since I mistakenly bought the more expensive pore strips. I kept forgetting to stop by that particular WAGS for the return. Now, fast forward 2 weeks to today. I thought, what the heck, what do I have to lose? Well, I got a refund of Over $4! No problems, no questions. The strips are now on sale for $5.99, 2 weeks ago this same box was $9.99. Thank you Walgreens!

Ultimate Blog Party has a Twitter party

Tonight, we're having a Twitter party! My 1st. Lots of action, questions and answers.

Biore Deal another good deal at Wags this week starting 4/11



I went to Walgreens this evening and next weeks deals were working. I didn't have all my Qs ready, but I had my Biore BOGO Q with me and I knew this was one of the monthly RR deals, so it should still print the RR. It worked perfectly.

The Biore products shown are on sale this week for $5.99 each.Use the BOGO Q(3/7SS) and buy these 2 for $5.99 and get $5RR back. Total of $ .99 for 2 or about $ .50 each. Not free, but a good deal.

Some Saturday Shopping


I actually went to Walmart to grab a couple of good deals. We were going to be very close to one and so we made a quick pit stop. I was able to get some cheap Hidden Valley Salad Dressing, Mighty Dog can food, some frozen steamfresh birdseye veggies, some dried pinto beans and lentils,1 Banquet family style frozen entree, and fresh strawberries.

2010 Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

It's time for the 2010 Blog party. I'm new to this and don't know what to expect. From what I've read, it is a super great experience! I'm ready to meet new people and make friends!

My name is Jeri and I've become very addicted to hounding for deals. It all started about 3 years ago when I stumbled upon 4 Hats and Frugal. I have another blog about Low Carb lifestyle called Jeri Kay's World and I would often check out a blog about cooking in a crockpot. I had seen a comment left by 4 Hats and was curious about this nice poster, so I visited her blog. I was so amazed when I read about her "stockpile" and saw the pictures of items she had bought on sale for free. I just had to find out how she did this. I started investigating all of the coupon loving blogs I could find and figured out that I could do the same thing. I'm almost 2 years into heavy couponing and going after the deals. My husband is totally onboard. We've had very successful yard sales, selling nothing but my deals. We've given away tons of my deals and "steals" to family and friends. I give away gift bags and baskets full of items that I get for pennies or free.


Besides being a couponer and low-carber, I am a Speech Therapist in the public schools and rehab setting. My husband and I have 5 grown children between us. Currently there are 6 grandchildren. We love to travel, especially cruising! We have been on 6 cruises.

Enough about me. Let's get this party started! I will be sharing some my Low Carb party foods!!

As far as a prize, I just can't decide!

Free Dog Food and Snuggle



I ended up with free dog food from Dollar General and free Snuggle from Family Dollar. The dog food coupon did not work at Family Dollar (?).
I used the $3/5 Q for Mighty Dog food and the $3/1 Snuggle Q.

2010 Ultimate Blog Party

After reading 4 Hats and Frugal, I decided to check out 5 minutes for Mom. I'm game! Let's see how this works! Want to join me? We can figure this out together!
Read the directions here for the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party.
