My freezer is happy :)
I barely fit it all in! The two Target trips this week filled an empty freezer. You are looking at $500 worth of food that I spent about $100 on. In the year we have had this freezer, it has never reached halfway full.

Rite Aid 2/26/11

This was my first trip to Rite Aid. It was 25 minutes away but in the middle of nowhere. I thought it would be the perfect place to go couponing, figured I would have all the stock I wanted. Yeah, every other couponer had the same idea! The cashier said they get cleared out by Monday night. Next week we will try the one in town!

1 Right Guard body wash
1 J&J baby oil
4 Always pantyliners
1 40ct. box of Salonpas patches

Total spent:  $10.93  Total saved:  $9.30
Minus $5 +UPS for next time

How I did it:

 Right guard (sale for $3.99, got $3 +UPS)
Baby oil (sale for $2.99, had $1 coupon, got $2 +UPS)
Always (sale for $0.99, had 4 $1 off coupons=FREE)

Walgreens 2/26/11

3 bottles of Gain dish soap
1 bottle of hand sanitizer (filler)

Total spent:  $0.96   Total saved:  $5.40

How I did it:

Gain-original price of $1.79, on sale (with in-ad coupon) for $0.99, used 3 $1 off coupons from the P&G $110 coupon booklet.

The dish soaps came to $0.99 but the coupons were for $1 off, so I had to buy a "filler" item. The hand sanitizer was $0.99, but it took $0.03 off because of my coupon overage.

Samples in the mail!!

I sign up for free samples all the time. The samples go in my travel bag (they charge about the same for a travel sized item as they do for the full size product!) and then they usually come with coupons for whatever you are trying. This all came in the mail today:

P&G sample box that had 4 pads, 3 tampons, head and shoulders sample, mini bottles of pantene, and a sample of prilosec
P&G $110 booklet
Organize in Style coupon booklet
Maggi soup mix
Power bar energy bites
Vaseline lotion
various coupons
And a gardening catalog that has a coupon for $25 off a purchase of $50

Target frozen food deal 2/22/11

Target has a great deal going on right now. Buy ANY 7 frozen food items, get a $5 gift card. We figured out that you can use coupons, and roll the gift cards. This means buying 7 things, getting the gift card, buying 7 more things, using that gift card to pay for it, and then getting another gift card. This is how we did tonight:

4 bags Market Pantry frozen veggies ($1 off 4 target coupon)
16 can Old Orchard concentrated juice ($1 off 4 ((x4 coupons)) when you register on their website)
2 California Pizza Kitchen frozen pizzas ($1.25 off ((x2 coupons)) printed coupon)
2 Kashi frozen entrees ($2 off ((x2 coupons)) any Kashi item from RecyleBank)
7 personal size ice creams
4 boxes green giant veggies ($0.50 off ((x4 coupons)) any green giant veggies-their website)
21 bags Birdseye steamer veggies ($1 off 3 ((x7 coupons)) from their website)
1 TGIF appetizer (clearance)
22 Michelina's frozen entrees ($1 off 5 ((x2 coupons)) from their website)
24 Banquet pot pies

Also 2 kids meals and 2 large drinks from the target cafe. ($1 off kids meal ((x2 coupons)) from target site)

Started with a credit of $8.51
Total spent: $15.57  Total saved: $83.93

My freezer is full, I got a huge variety, and the store still had a LOT left. We only had $16 to work with or I think we would have bought out the store! Possibly going back later in the week to do more damage!

I tried to keep each transaction to about $5-$7 for all seven items, so I was paying $0-$2 for each "set" after the gift cards.

I felt like a kid in a candy store, this is the coolest thing I have been able to do since I started couponing!
