This is what its all about…

Getting good deals is awesome.  Helping a friend in need?  Million-bajillion times better 🙂

If you were in downtown Lee’s Summit on Saturday afternoon, you probably saw these guys.  That’s my DH with his buddy, Juiceman.  They are trying to get participants for their charity golf tournament, The Juicebox Challenge, coming up this Friday.  They are raising money for Jude M., the 4-yr old son of our friend, who is fighting lymphoma.  He is currently undergoing chemo treatments.  As we all know, medical bills add up, and fast.

If you want to know more about Jude, if you are interested in joining the Juicebox Challenge, or if you just want to see other ways to help out this sweet family, check out their site:

Saturday Shopping – they paid me!!

Today I headed out to CVS, Walgreens, and Target – and brought home a good haul 🙂  I forgot to take a pic this time, so I will just have to tell you what I got:


2 Colgate Total toothpastes – $2.99, get $2 EB, used $.75 coupons = $.24 each
4 Pantene shampoo/conditioners – $2.99, get $1 EB, used $3/2 coupons = $.50 each
3 Dove shampoo/conditioner (one was a double pack – look for these!) – $4.49 each, get $4.49 EB, used $2 coupon = $2 MM each
12 bottles of Nature’s Bounty vitamins – $4.99 to $6.99 each, used $5 rewards coupons, BOGO sale = $20 + MM
2 Stride Gum – $.99, get $.99 EB = Free
2 Dial Nutriskin bodywashes – $5.49, get $4.50 EB, used $1 coupons = Free
1 gallon milk – $3.29

My overall OOP was $1.24.  I used a giftcard to pay for that, so I really didnt pay anything 🙂  I also ended the day with $13 more in EB than I originally had.


3 Pilot Frixion pens =$.61, will submit for $4.50 MIR ($3.89 total profit)

I would have done more, but all my stores were out.  I got a couple rain checks, so I will try this in the middle of next week.  One store had pulled them all off the shelves & brought out 3 when I asked – I will never understand that way of thinking (hide the sale items so they dont sell out?!?!).


6 Seventh Generation cleaners – $2.99 each, used $1 manufacturer coupons & $1 Target coupons = $.99 each

I will submit these for the $5 Seventh Generation MIR, so overall I will make $4 on this one.  Not too shabby.  We also got DH a shirt because I got a $5 Merona catalina last time I was at the store.  I am glad they have started printing out the register coupons!

So overall today, once my rebates come in, I will have made about $21 to go shopping.  Yep – I love it 🙂

Need kid’s clothes?

Babys R Us is doing a super cool promotion right now. Print out this coupon and receive a pretty reusable tote for free! But, it gets even better than that. Take your new tote and fill it with some cute clothes for the kiddos (infant – 48 months sizes) – and get 25% off of everything you can get in the bag! This sale runs from April 9th to April 22nd. The offer is valid while the totes last, so you better head out this weekend if you want one.

Thanks, Midgetmomma, for the heads-up!!
