You Can Do Alot in 15 min.

Today I revisted a site I've went to many times before off and on. She helps you get your house clean and organized in simple, manageable steps. She suggest setting a timer for 15 min. and working for 15 min at a time. It's really doable if you look at it that way.

She has different tips for each day.

Her tip for today is:

Just take 15 min. and go through the stacks of mail, papers, magazines etc. and trash or put them away where they belong. You will be suprised how much you can put away in a short time.

See that's not so hard.

There is a great Pepsi deal starting this sun. at CVS. It's a great time and price to stock up for those super bowl parties that are in the planning.

When you buy 3 you get $4 in Extra Care Buck's back.

Or, if you would rathar have 2 liters than the cans there's a deal for you too.

3 2 liters for $4

If you buy 12 you will get $5 Extra Care Buck's back.

You wouldn't have to buy enough to get the Extra bucks to get the sale price if you didn't need/want that many.

Everything in all 3 trips was free except 1 hershey's bar after sales and coupons.

After a raincheck for the brownies and coupons for everything....

Spent $2.04 Saved $23.61 @ Harris Teeter

Tues. night I went to Harris Teeter and took one last advantage of last weeks sales. I spent $2.04 and saved $23.61. I also got a .75 coupon off my next shopping order.

A team from our church is going on a mission trip to Kenya in the summer and I'm collecting stuff for them to take. Ink pens, soap, chap stick, toothpaste, toothbrushes, are among the things I've already collected. So the stuff like that I've been buying (well, really getting for free!) is going to Kenya.

I bought:

2 softsoap hand soaps on e-vic for .99 each. I had 2 .40/1 coupons which doubled
1 starkist tuna pouch on sale for $1. I had a .50/1 coupon that doubled making it free
1 jar of wlfgang puck sphagetti sauce $2.99 $1 ZVR coupon + .75/1 coupon which doubled making it .49. Also got a .75 catalina off my next order
2 colgate toothpaste B1G1 both free after .75/1 coupons doubled
1 box of tampax compak $3.99 on sale. $2 ZVR+ $2 coupon=free
2 birds eye steamfresh chef favorites B1G1= .65/2 after 2 .50/1 coupons doubled

I was really happy with this trip. Haven't been yet to HT this week. We'll see if I get there. Nothing I have to have.

Spent $1.12 Saved $52.49 @Harris Teeter

I did really well at Super Doubles at Harris Teeter last week. My first trip wasn't that big but was good. In the beginning I didn't think it was that great with the sales but after reading alot of other blogger's post about how they did I realized there were alot better sales then I thought with coupons I had.

I bought:

3 big packs of solo plates
2 V8 Fusion Smoothies
3 Starkist tuna poches
2 boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats
1 Glide floss
2 Aquafresh tartar control toothpaste
1 regular Aquafresh
3 bayer asprin

I only paid $1.12 for all this and saved $52.49.
The only thing I paid for were the solo plates but I only paid .15 for them.

Spent $13.76 Saved $55.08 @ CVS, Rite Aid, Harris Teeter

I started my savings of 2012 out with a bang. I went to Rite Aid, Harris Teeter, and CVS this week and between all 3 stores I spent $13.76 and saved $55.08.

Rite Aid:

1 Colgate Whitening Toothbrush regularly $4.99 sale price $3.49. I had a $3 video values coupon and a .75 manuf coupon. I got the toothbrush for free plus overage.

1 Nature Made Fish Oil on sale buy 1 get 1 free. They only had 1 on the shelf so they gave it to me at half price. I also had a $3 video values coupon for the vitamins. I also had a manuf. coupon but couldn't use it because the coupon was for more than the total left. I ended up paying $1.50 including tax for the vitamins which is still a great deal.


I had a $5/$25 coupon that expired the 3rd and I was determined to find the best way to use the coupon. Everything I bought accept the cereal I'm donating to my church's team going to Kenya.

8 Nivea lip gloss
1 box of fiber one cereal
5 3 packs of ivory soap

I only had to buy 4 nivea to qualify me for the $5 in extra care bucks. I also got $1 back from my green bag tag. My total including tax was $4.32 and $42.36

Harris Teeter Trip 1 Tues. (prior to Super Doubles

3 colgate toothpaste reg. $1.49 each

used 3 .75/1 coupons which made them all free paid .15 tax and saved $4.47

Harris Teeter Super Doubles Trip 1

I didn't see hardly anything other than the smart balance milk that wowed me this week. I know I missed a few freebies and am going back tomorrow and hope for some or get rainchecks.

1 box of honey bunches of oats cereal
3 cartons of smart balance milk
