P&G Rebate Extended

The Proctor and Gamble Rebate that was going to end April 15th has been extended to May 31st. If you're not familiar with this rebate if you buy $50 of P&G products you will receive a $100 coupon booklet. The $50 is before coupon and sale prices! I'm glad they have extended it because I'm not to my $50 yet!

Free nursing cover

Promo Code for Free Nursing Cover!

This is a fantastic deal for all our mommies out there and their friends. I got one like this for a gift and it is one of my favorite baby items. The code also works towards their gift sets (they subtract $32). has a new promotion going where you can get one nursing cover (regular price $32) free.

The code is "babiesonline".

Go to, click on "Shop Now", select the nursing cover of your choice, type in babiesonline and it will bring your product total to $0. All you pay is the S&H! You can use the code more than once - you just have to open a new browser/window to do so. Good Luck!


Monday Savings

Hope everyone had a good weekend and has gotten to take advantage of triple coupons this week.

I went again this morning to use the many good coupons that were in the paper yesterday. I spent the most I've spent this week but I know it was still a good deal because I got alot of stuff including meat.

My total out of pocket spending was $19.03. My coupons saved me $51.80!

I bought 3 packs of boneless skinless chicken breast, these were on sale Buy 1 Get 2 Free
3 6oz cans of French's Fried Onions
3 60z tubes of Colgate Max White tooth paste (.25 each!)
2 boxes of Uncle Ben's Rice
1 Warm Delight's brownie bowl
1 pack of Solo cups (free!)
3 pouches of Betty Crocker potatoes
2 jars of Skippy Peanut Butter
1 bag of 10 whole wheat tortilla wraps
1 box of 10 whole grain taco shells

2nd Harris Teeter Trip

I went back to Harris Teeter again today. I thought that I would have spent more today than yesterday. Actually I didn't! I was very surprised!

(2) Lysol toilet bowl cleaners
(3) packs Trident Layers gum
(1) pack Mentos gum
(3) Zone Perfect protein bars
(4) cans of Dole Fruit
(2) bags of No Yolk noodles
(1) package of 2 brown rice bowls

How much did I spend out of pocket.....


I think I've figured out one of the keys to how to get stuff so cheap with using coupons. If you have a .55 coupon that triples, that would be $1.65 off. If the item only cost $1.00 the .65 overage would come off your other items purchased.

(3) Mentos gum
(2) 32 oz G2 gatorade

(3) Zone perfect protein bars
(1) Colgate total toothpaste 6oz
(2) 2 bags of Multigrain Mini rice cakes
(2) Martha white muffin mixes
(1) 9oz. pack of 50 solo cups

I got everything free except toilet cleaner, muffin mixes, and toothpaste. You do have to pay tax on coupons even if you get the stuff for free.

Tripple Coupon Matchups for Harris Teeter

Here is the start of your list of Free and great deals at Harris Teeter for the upcoming triples week. This doesn’t include anything from the weekly ad, I’ll have those deals for you on Monday.


They will triple coupons 99¢ or less, up to 20 coupons per day.

How do consignment shops work?

I received an e-mail from a friend asking me to blog about consigning at consignment shops. This is something that I've started doing in the past year.

Consignments shops set a price for your items. If you want a certain item to be sold for no less than a certain price you can specify that too. Most consignment shops give you 50% of the price they received for the item sold. They normally only take clothing for the current season. My local shop is now having a $1 sale to move out the winter clothing and make room for the spring and summer. You pick up your money monthly. My store gives the option of having your money mailed to you so you won't have to remember to stop by and get it monthly.

I had never dreamed that I would make as much money as I have consigning. You can get more money out of the stuff than you could at a yard sale. The best part is you don't have to do any of the work.

Not sure how other stores work but one of the downfalls of my local store is that she can't tell me what I've sold that month. Also with the $1 sale someone is getting alot of great deals. Most of my stuff is nice and worth alot more than $1.

Consignment stores are a great place to shop. You can find nice name brand stuff for cheap! Alot of people may think that consignments shops just have children stuff but alot of them have adult stuff too.

Does anyone else have any consigning tips to share? What deal have you found at a consignment shop?


I was just listening to new life 91.9 radio show Eric and Erica and this question was asked. What brings out your inner frugalista? I gave my idea on Facebook and they shared it on the show! My answer: Easy! Canceled my huge cable bill. Now I watch my favorite shows free on the internet and there is less commercials too! I love the question and want to know your comments. So how does your inner frugalista help you save money?

7 Simple Ways To Make Decluttering Fun

No one usually likes to clean out and declutter. I guess I'm the odd ball I enjoy it but never want to part with anything! I found 7 tips to make it fun!

1. Host an organizing party with friends. Start at your home and then move on to each other's homes.

2. Host a photo organizing party. I'm sure everyone is behind on putting their photos in albums! Everyone bring their photos and album and do it together. Don't focus on the scrapbooking part of it just organizing and getting them in albums. It will be a great time to share memories.

3. Write your organizing date on the calendar in ink, it will never get done if you leave it to your spare time!

4.Have a decluttering party with your family. Make it fun, have food, music, or whatever that would make it fun for your family. Have a prize at the end for whoever donates the most to charity.

5. Have a giving party. Everyone brings a bag of stuff that they don't "love" anymore, swap stuff with your friends for things that you can use.

6. Talk your friends to help you declutter or at least watch the kids while you do it. Uninterrupted time is when you will get the most accomplished.

7. After you have organized reward yourself with anything but shopping!

Don't let the idea of "party" scare you away from decluttering. I know time is an issue for everyone and trying to find a time when all your friends were available may be hard. Just get together with one friend, you can have lots of fun cleaning out with one, you don't have to have a whole crowd.

There is a great website I check weekly to see the upcoming coupons in that weekend's paper. This is a good way for you who don't subscribe to the paper to see if it's worth buying one that week. If there is a ton of coupons you use it may be worth buying an additional paper. Check out There will be a P&G insert this week also if you want to think about doing the rebate. The website usually starts posting the weekend's coupons on wed. but all are on there by thurs.

Proctor and Gamble Rebate

Proctor and Gamble (P&G) has a great rebate going on right now. It started last month but it's not to late to jump in and take advantage of the savings. If you buy $50 worth of their products between Feb 1st and April 15 you will receive $100 worth of coupons. The awesome thing is, you can use coupons on the $50 you buy. The $50 is the regular price so you can shop the sales and coupons and not pay $50 out of pocket for all the stuff. Save your receipts, circle the items and price and send it in. More stuff is p&g products than you think. I was surprised how many different brands I use every day that are p&g products. Go to, scroll down and you will see the rebate info on the right "A Year of Savings for Everything You Do."

Walgreen's Freebies

A few weeks ago at Walgreen's I hit the jack pot! I got 4 Bic Hybrid Advance Razors for free! They were on sale for buy 1 get 1 free. I had a coupon for buy 1 get one free on any bic razor. Believe it or not at walgreen's you can use buy 1 get 1 coupons with buy 1 get one sales.

The other items in the photo were also freebies from the same day.
