Great Hair Products At Walgreens

The got2b hair styling products are B1G1 at Walgreens this week. They are $5.99. Use 2 of these coupons found here and get them for $.50 each. These are fantastic products. I have used Paul Mitchell mousse for years and spent a fortune. On the last got2b sale I tried the fat-tastic mousse and found I prefer it. And I got it for free. You can't beat that!

For other great Walgreens deals including free bubble mailers this week head here and here.

Walgreens Trip

Before sales prices, coupons, and Register Rewards this would have cost:


I paid: $16.37

Go here to put together your Walgreens savings for the week.

Note for Kleenex: The coupon in the Walgreens ad is limit 3, I had coupons for $.50/2. I had to do 4 separate transactions with the Kleenex. It was a pain, but well worth it because including tax, I paid $.72 a box. Scotch tape was the best deal this week $.39 a roll and I had 4 $1/3 coupons so I paid $.17 total for 3 rolls. Dawn soap $.49, paper plates $.50 each. You can find the dates for these coupons on the site I linked above.

Albertsons run

Hi gals, I haven't posted a grocery run for awhile so I thought I should.

Before my Albertsons card savings, coupons and rebates my total would have been:

After all these savings I ended up paying $19.28.

6 BIG boxes of cereal
2 boxes Special K Bars
2 boxes Cinnabon Bars
2 Pillsbury Simply cookies
2 gallons of milk
40 jars baby food

Albertsons is running a Kellogs promotion this week. If you buy 5 items listed in their add they each drop down to $1.88. There were coupons in June for several Kellogs cereals and the Special K cereal bars. I am so sorry, but I am not sure which week had them. If you do have these coupons depending on how you use them you could get 10 boxes of cereal for free because there is also a rebate you can send in for $10 when you buy 10 Kelloggs items in the same purchase. That link is here. Thanks to Save at Home Mommy for that. I only had 6 cereal Q's and then I used one Special K coupon. To see the full list of what you can mix and match and the ENTIRE Albertsons savings list for Southern California go here. Make up your own savings regarding what you think you will use.

When you buy 2 packages of Pillsbury Simply cookies 2 for $5.00 (and use 2 of the coupons here), you will INSTANTLY get $1.00 off a gallon of milk. I did the 2 for $3.98 deal on milk so I paid $5.50 for 2 packs of the cookies and 2 gallons of milk.

They are also having a sale on Beech Nut baby foods. They are 10 for $4. A thrifty mom listed coupons last week. The $1 off 10 she has listed is no longer good, but the $2 off 20 worked for me. That post is here. I ended up getting 40 jars for $12.00.

How to store your stockpile

I thought I was crazy with the tiny stockpile I have, but I am finding that mine is pitiful compared to these. These people are crazy :) Good for them!

$.15 Notebooks at Wal-Mart

The 70 sheet spiral notebooks are on sale at Wal-Mart for 15 cents. Good for Cub/Boy Scout projects, Achievement Days, pre-school kids learning to write letters and for your kids to take to school. Glue sticks were under a sign that said 20 cents but they were 25. Crayola colored pencils $1 (these might go down to 50 cents, they did last year.)

Staples Sale

Staples Sale

Check your weekly ad or for the items that are on sale this week. They have 1 cent copy paper, 1 cent pencils (8 pack), $1 scotch tape, $1 4 x 6 photo paper, and $1 highlighters! Be careful, in order to get these prices there are limits per household and rebates that you must send in. I spent $35.00 and will get about $30 back in rebates!
$.99 Electrasol Dishwasher Tabs or Gel Pacs

I hope you gals got a few papers yesterday. Certain boxes of Electrasol Tabs and Gelpacs are on sale at Target for $3.49 each. There was a $2.50 coupon in Smart Source yesterday. It was only in the LA times paper Smart Source though, not the Press Enterprise. I am finding that the really good ones don't often make it to the press. They still have the Smart Source, but sometimes not the really high saving coupons. Anyway, the Newport Target was pretty wiped out when I got there. I mixed and matched and was able to get 5 for $6.48. They did have a few boxes left of the tabs and a few of the gelpacs. If you have these coupons, I would try the new Target or go bright and early after they have stocked and night and see if they have more.

**I just had a thought...I bet if you take your Target ad to Wal-Mart they will price match for you** This will be a hot item this week at Target so if you don't need anything else there I bet Wal-Mart is stocked with this item.

Real Simple

I found this on a friends blog. "Real Simple Magazine is $5 for a year's subscription right now until July 18th at Usually it costs about $5 for ONE issue."

I love Real Simple. There is tons of great advice for around the house and for women in general. Normally a year subscription is $54. With this offer thats a 91% discount!

The Pioneer Woman

I found this site tonight with recipes on it. Haven't explored it much, but my though was, "um, I can barely find time to pull my ratty hair into a ponytail every weekday morning. Where does this woman find the time to do anything on this blog??"
