P&G home mailer (coupons) and Johnson & Johnson coupon offer

Proctor and Gamble has the sign up for their home mailer up again.
Go here  http://www.pgeverydaysolutions.com/index.jsp
Sign in and click on "brandSAMPLER" to get free samples or coupons mailed to you.
Click on "brandSAVER" to get the larger home mailer coupon book.
Johnson and Johnson has a web site
https://www.healthyessentials.com/home
where you can print coupons.  One of the coupons is actually a mail in form to get more coupons. I would think they are better coupons then the ones you can print but they just say "saving up to $46.50". Select that offer to print and it gives all the details on the deal.  Spend $50 on their products (before sales tax or product coupon) between 1/8/12 and 3/8/12. You send in the receipts with the form and get the coupons. And the KY products count so if you are going to Walmart and getting them for free, you can still use them on this deal.


Target offers free samples at http://samples.target.com/
but there are none at this time. I just go there every now and then to check.

Rite Aid week 1/1/12 extreme couponing here

I had a great day couponing today. And per normal, I really didn't think I was going to get anything today. Look what happened.

Visited 2 Rite Aids today and you might think I was planning on a year filled with pain. Hopefully that isn't the case. I just got a really great deal on pain killer this week.

The excedrine was $1.99 - $2.00 mq = free. And I had a few $1 video value coupons to use also. Plus part of the spend $100 get $20.
The bayer was part of a buy $30 get $10 up. Plus it is part of the diabetes buy $50 get $10 up. Plus part of the spend $100 get $20. $2.99 - $1.00 mq = 1.99. And had some $1 video values.
3 free remote controls
2 free Be Koool
2 free bags of picks

Ok really everything was free. Started with $5 up. Spent $2.74 cost and $10.78 tax. Ended with $36 up. And I don't think I am finished for the week.

Check my youtube video for an explanation.

Christmas Clearance at Meijer

I went to 2 Meijer stores this week to check out their Christmas clearance items. Found some deals on Betty Croker cake mix that matched with the coupon buy a cake mix and frosting get .75 off. Didn't get the frosting on sale but the 2 items were about $1.82.

The nestle chips were a good deal with the $1/3 coupon.

Not in my video..I found the Betty Crocker cookie mix (pumpkin cookies) for around .90 and the .40 coupon doubled to make it .10 each.

There were some other coupon match ups that I didn't get because I just didn't need/want the items. I have way too much food in my house right now. It seems the more I get the less I cook. Odd paradox. This month I really made an effort to only buy really good deal food items. I am going to continue this until I eat up some of this stuff. Funny enough I discovered I have very few canned corn, greenbeans, and peas but have lots of canned tomatoes and black beans.

CVS shampoo clearance week of 12/25/11

CVS is having a big 75% off clearance on various shampoos and conditioners. With the coupons that will expire on 12/31/11 you can get many for less than 50 cents. Various ones I got were Panteen, Herbal Essence and Dove. Haven't found the Head and Shoulders that many people are reporting being on sale also.

They also have lots of cosmetics on 50 or 75% off.

These are some deals I got last night.

Cheap or Free Shopping Week of 12/4/11

Ok, I went shopping way too many times last week but I did get alot of good stuff cheap or free and you can't argue with that. These are just my best deals. I did buy other items.

Rite Aid - The Revlon tools again were free and I was even buying the more expensive ones. I got 8 of those. Also got a bottle of Scope and Sucrets for free. M&Ms 4 bags for $4 but I probably paid nothing out of pocket because I roll my +UP rewards. Normally I wouldn't buy ready to mix cooking dough but it was part of a larger deal where I had to buy $50 get $10 back and it was part of a individual deal buy $12 get back $3 so I really didn't pay anything but tax. The Alive was in that deal also.

At CVS on first trip, I got 4 bottles of nail polish free (2 were revlon). Second trip, I got 2 Sally Hanson nail polish for .25 each and 6 Rimmel nail polish for .09 each. Would have gotten more if I had the coupons.

Meijer - I got the Snapware plastic containers in the back for 1.99 each (clearance and coupons). There are 4 containers each. Carefree was free. Ready to serve Minute Rice was free because I signed up to be a taste tester and got a get one free coupon with the free sample they sent me. The Mt Olive Pickles were on sale and got them for .66 each. Tuna helper was really cheap with manufacture coupon and mealbox coupon and on sale. UP2U gum, No Yolk noodles and Nestle water were free. Ortega salsa mix packets and the Chicken of the Sea pink salmon packs were really cheap as well as the little can of Rotel tomato sauce. The Reynolds cup cake cups were on sale and with q were about .75 each.

Kroger - free pomagranites, Toblerone chocolate, Reach floss. Kroger sent me some coupons which included some free items: pasta sauce and Sauve body wash. The body wash spongy things were .60 each. The Sunsweet dried apricots were about .66 each. They were on closeout and $1 coupon.

Target - The Benydryl topical pain reliever is .29...needed to use up my coupons before end of year. The Welch's juice was on clearence with $1 q were $1.09 each.

no tv...yet

So I did more black friday looking than shopping. I decided to skip the whole wait in line at midnight thing just so I could try to get a cheap tv. I ended Thanksgiving with a migrane and went to bed early. I did go out shopping on Friday. It was like a regular Saturday.

The big news is I only bought myself stuff...mostly a lot of cash on new tires for the truck. Maybe I can't afford a tv.

I am not giving up on finding a tv. My biggest problem now is I have a better understanding aboub these new fangled tvs and my idea of a "good" tv has changed. They do say they will get cheaper just before Christmas. I will keep watching the ads.
