Ground Beef 3 lb chubs (73% lean) on sale for $2.97!! That's just $.99 a lb! I cut them down to 1 lb and store them in the freezer. I will go out on a limb and say that you most likely won't find a better deal on ground beef.

K-Mart apparantly has a double coupons sale every year. It is next week. I emailed K-Mart and our stores are participating. They said they are doubling coupons up to $2. I am not understanding if that means they will double up to $2 or double a $2 coupon up to $4? This was the exact line from the email: "We will double up to the $2.00 face value of a coupon, not to exceed the retail value of a single item." If anyone smarter than me knows if that means it will be worth $2 or $4 please let me know. We can only use 25 coupons a day at our store. Any excess change from using your coupons will not be given back to you as cash so make sure you get enough items that you will not be left with them owing you change. Use it to your advantage with product. I wish that the sales would start Monday as we are a disadvantage with it starting Sunday, but I am sure there will be a lot left. I don't shop at K-Mart, but a lot of the expert savers say that it is more expensive than most places. So, I would advise following lists compiled by blogs on the right of our blog in order to get the most savings.
It's hip to save has compiled a list of mega savings, most items free. I am not really in the market for anything, but if I can get free items to store that is what I am going to do.
I promise I will learn to "hotlink" soon for anyone that is annoyed by me putting the whole link up.
Well, I definitely have to thank Ambrea for giving us the heads up on the prescription transfer at Rite Aid. I have had nothing but problems with the Savon pharmacy at Albertsons by us since we started. I have several stories. So I was more than happy to make a little drive to Rite Aid. I took my prescriptions to be transferred on Wednesday and she said she didn't think the process would be done until 5 p.m. So we went back Thursday. The same lady was there and was very kind. I gave her my coupons for the $25.00 gift card. I had to do 3 separate transactions in order to get the gift cards. My copay is $5 so I paid $15.00, got my prescriptions and $75.00 in gift cards to Rite Aid. I was SO thrilled. It's not often that I get "luxury" items anymore or just things I want to try out. I felt like with free money I could get a few of these items that I just plain "want." This is the great thing about working hard at this couponing, once in awhile the mom can get something she has been wanting. I would NEVER spend $14.00 on that scrubbing bubbles shower cleaner. I would rather scrub the old fashioned way than spend that much. But, if it's $2.99 and free on my gift card I can try it. It's also been a long time since I have been able to buy the Air Wick Oils. They were 2/$5 - my $1 mc and free on my Gift card. I have also been wanting some new makeup. Almay was Buy one get one 50% off so it was a total of $11.23-$2 Rebate=$9.23 for eyeliner and shadow.
So this is what I got and how much it cost:
Scrubbing Bubbles Shower Cleaner:
$12.99-$7 printable http://www.rightathome.com/offers/200902-sb/Default.aspx?email=#top
Air Wick Refill Oils
2/$5-$1 MC from paper=$4.00
(2) $1.99-(2) $1 MC=$1.98
(4) .99 (4) $.75 MC=$.96
Angel Soft 4 packs
Swiffer Dry Cloths
(2) $.99 (2) $.50 MC=$.98
Eye Shadow $7.49
Eye Liner $3.74
Rite Aid Acetaminophen $.99
I also got 4 nail polish at $1.79 for the Achievement Day activity yesterday.
Important Note: I separated this stuff into two purchases so I could use (2) $5 off $25.00 coupons found here. http://www.nba.com/media/cavaliers/riteaid_coupon_3.pdf
This one scanned, but another one I had did not. The manager had to come over for the one that would not scan to approve the cashier entering it it. He said their policy is that if it does not scan they will not take it. He got so frustrated with it not scanning that he went ahead and took it though. I guess it just depends on who you get.
Total purchase: $60.40 (including tax)
Total after coupons $34.60
Total after rebates $27.60
Rebate checks coming back=$7.00
Total OOP (out of pocket)=$15.00 for prescriptions-$7 rebates=$8
Total left on Gift Cards=$40.40
I think this is the best I have ever done and I finally got some WANTS for ME out of the deal!!

If you have any prescriptions to refill go to Rite Aid. You can get a $25 gift card for each transferred (bummer, new ones don't count) prescription...I think the limit is 4! That could be $100!!! I don't think it counts for government insurances like Healthy Fams or Medical, but I'm not totally sure, so check on that. If you have anything to refill do it and just have it on hand, especially if your insurance covers it!

Tansy told me about Staples Brand computer paper (500 sheets) for $1. I went today to ours by Target and there were only 2 left. So on our way home from town today we stopped off on Madison. They have about 20 left I would say. When you walk in they are on the wall to your left. I called the one on HW 79 and they said they had about 10 left this afternoon. They are $6.99 and there is a rebate for $5.99 making them $1 per package. If you have a staples or office depot coupon $10 off $50 purchase you can use it and get them for free!! Mine expired on the 4th, darn!! I bought 10 and took some to Tyler's school. They can ALWAYS use paper at the schools so it's a great way to help out. The rebate is mail in or an easy online entry.

Now I know what you are thinking...Amber, what do you need 20 cans of Pringles for? Well, it's that whole stocking up idea. My kids love Pringles. When we go to Winco they get to pick out one can a piece if they are $1. If they are any more than that they don't get them on that trip. So why not hide these in the closet for their special treat for months to come? Why not pay $.38 a can instead of the normal $1.00. These are $1.50 a can at Wal-Mart right now and the CVS regular price is $1.79.
