This is the first year that I have had Veteran’s day off!  YEAH!  So my daughter and I spent some time shopping and playing (at the playground).  Here are the deals we scored, pretty good!

Toys R Us

This was my favorite shop, because I ALWAYS need kids toys for birthday parties, etc.  So I decided to stock up.  Toys R Us currently has a selection of Hasbro Games on sale for $3.99.  PLUS, there is a mail in rebate at the store for many of the games, making the games$1.99 after rebate.  Then on top fo the rebate, Toys R Us will give you a $10 gift card for spending $25 on Hasbro games.  WHAT A DEAL!  I ended up spending $59.49 oop for $139.36 in merchandise.  If you add in the rebate and gift cards, I spent $17.49 oop (87% Savings)!  Plus now I have cool games to give as gifts to my daughters friends.  Here is what I got ( I did break it into two transactions to getwo gift cards:

2 CandyLandToys r us 11-11-09

2 Chutes & Ladders

2 Cooties

1 Don’t Break the Ice

1 Ants in the Pants

1 Don’t Spill the Beans

5 Memory Games (Disney Princess, Toy Story, Strawberry Shortcake, Pooh & Friends, etc.)

Target

I also had a great time at Target with two deals that I REALLY wanted to cash in on.  I was able to score $57.71 in merchandise for $17.61, a 70% savings.  Here is what I got:

1 Barbie & Three Musketeers DVD (used $5 Target Q + $5 Barbie + one other Barbie Movie, then I priced matched to Toys R Us ad).Target 11-11-09

1 Barbie Christmas Carol DVD

4 Glade Candle Tins (used $2/2 found in containers)

4 Glade Candle Refills (used 4 Free Item, wyb Candle holders)

4 Boxes of “UP” Wipes (used 4 $1/1 Target Q)

$1 Bin Book

Then, I got a $5 gift card for the Glade Holiday candle purchase, so when I went to CS to price match, I used that to pay down the balance on the movies.  In the end I have two moves that cost more than my oop total!  YEAH!

Publix

I have SO many groceries that I really have not been grocery shopping lately, but I decide to try to find the Tylenol (rumored to be free – NOT so).  I also wanted to cash in on the Real Simple MIR.  I spent $6.16 oop for $22.33 in groceries.  Here is what I bought:

6 packages of Nestle Tollhouse Refridgerated Cookie DoughPublix 11-11-09

1 Bag Public Pretzels

The mail in rebate will send me $5 back, so I paid for the cookies and make a little money too!

Today I shopped Walgreens, CVS and Publix.  I usually shop at least one store on Sunday to get my copies of the Sunday paper.  Some places do sell Sunday papers all week, but there is no guarantee they will have them, so if I am not busy I try to make sure to get my Sunday papers.

CVS-WAGS 10-18-09

Walgreens

WAGS was a slow one for me this week.  I took advantage of the monthly register rewards on Chapstick, but other than that I took advantage of the RR I had that were going to expire next week and bought the below:

4 Lindsay Olives , ( Used WAGS Q $99/1, Manufacturer Q $2/1)

5 Newspapers ($2 x 2, $1 x 3)

1 Walgreens Orange Juice (no Q’s)

1 Chapstick Mandarin, (no Q’s)

Used, $13 in RR from previous transaction, total oop $1.40 for $21.94 in products.  Then I received a $3 RR to use on my next trip.

CVS

CVS has not had the greatest sales lately, but they do have a money maker on the Glade products.  Here is what I got:

1 Glade Fragrance Collection Diffuser (used $3/1 Q)

1 MacArthur Orange Juice (no Q)

1 CVS Green Bag Tag

Used, $7.00 ECB from previous purchase so total oop was $1.49 for $15.39 in products.  I also received $6.99 ECB to use on my next purchase.

Publix 10-18-09

Publix

Publix was also a slow one as I bought the REALLY good deals the other day, see my post here (make sure you get your FREE fabric softener and FREE toothpaste).  Here is what I got:

2 Sunkist Orange Soda 12 Packs

2 A&W Root Beer 12 Packs

1 Hawaiian Punch 12 Pack Juice

2 Progresso Bread Crumbs

2 Entenmann’s Doughnuts

2 Fast Fixin Bags Chicken Nuggets (used 2 – $1/1 Q’s)

1/4 Lb Publix Hard Salami

16 Packs of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning (used 3 $1/3 and 4 Free Seasoning wyb 2 products)

2 LBs Bananas

3 Packages of Chicken Breasts (used Albertson’s Q buy 1 get 2 free)

I also used a $5 off $50 Albertson’s Q for an oop of $29.72 for $90.07 in products.  Not my best week, but still a 68% savings overall.  I also bought some splurge items for my husband for work, so without those my oop would have been $13.00.

Let me know if you have questions regarding any of the above scenarios and remember to check out my posts on the Publix, Walgreens and CVS to check out all of the possible deals.
