All You Magazine

There are a few instances where I think spending money to save money is a good idea. Getting a subsciption to the newspaper costs a couple bucks (but well worth it) and usually whatever you use to organize your coupons will put you out a few dollars (again, totally worth it). The other way I recommend saving money by utilizing coupons is buying “All You” Magazine.

“All You” is a magazine of coupons and money saving tips. It is only available for purchase at Wal-Mart. It’s about $2.30 (depending on taxes where you live) for the issue. It also contains lots of good articles on how to save money and links for web sites that can give you even more ideas. If you don’t want to buy it each month, you can subscribe to it. (Deal Seeking Mom has the best offer here I have ever seen, but it requires a little leg work.)

Every month when their new issue is about to come out, I will list all of the coupons in the upcoming issue so you can evaluate if buying it would be beneficial. If you think you can save more than the $2.30 it is probably worth your while!

Here is the list of coupons for the October issue:

CVS today

Here’s my pictures from CVS today! Today was a small but productive trip that included introducing a friend of mine to the wonders of CVS. Here is a breakdown to show you how the coupons, sales and Extra Care Bucks can add up.

Total Price of eleven items combined before sales: $49.09
Price after sales with CVS card: $37.12
Price after coupons: $16.87
Extra Care Bucks left from last visit: $11.99
Total after ECB and adding tax: $6.74

Plus I got $7.00 ECB this time, so all in all I left with a profit of $.26

***Remember that CVS will stack coupons, so if you have more than one coupon for an item, you can use both. This is how I was able to save so much today!***

Simple CVS explanation

On the post below this one I have put the CVS deals for the day. But I know most of you have just started using coupons, and I recommend that your first trip to CVS be small, so you can get the hang of it. So I wanted to write step by step what to do to get the free toothpaste this week.

1. Get an envelope to keep all of your coupons in.
2. Cut the $1.00 Colgate coupon out of the Smart Source insert in your paper today and put it in the envelope.
3. Print the $1.00 off of 1 on- line coupon. Put that coupon in the envelope.
4. Head to your friendly neighborhood CVS.
5. Once inside, select the toothpaste of your choosing. Make sure you check the sales paper and your coupons to ensure you have the proper one.
7. At the register, first hand the cashier your CVS card. (If you don’t have one yet, you can grab it in the store- they are free).
8. Let her ring everything up. Then hand her the coupons.
9. Watch the total go down.
10. After she rings up the coupons, there will be some out of pocket money due. It should be around $1 plus tax.
11. Pay the nice cashier.
12. When your receipt prints, there will be a small piece of paper on the bottom with a bar code on it worth $2. This is an extra care buck. CVS treats these as cash (although they do expire in about a month). So the next time you come in, you can get $2 worth of merchandise for free.

The Result: You spend $1 and get $2 worth of free stuff from CVS!

Also, if they are out of toothpaste by the time you get there, they give rainchecks as well!

Breakfast

I love breakfast but many days it’s a battle between breakfast and sleep in the morning. Generally speaking, sleep is going to win. So during my waking hours I try to do whatever I can to allow me to sleep as long as possible. And this includes preparing breakfast ahead of time.

The other night I decided to try to make an egg/sausage/cheese/english muffin concoction, freeze it and see if I could thaw it into a good breakfast the next morning. I had most of the ingredients in my house already, so I don’t know exactly how much it cost.

Ingredients

The ingredients I used were fat free cheese, eggs, whole wheat english muffins and pre-cooked turkey sausage but any variety could be used.

Eggs in bowl First I wisked the eggs and poured them into the pan to be cooked in the oven. I added just a little bit of skim milk to the eggs. I cooked them in a small shallow pan on 350 for about 15 minutes (I have to admit I checked them often- I did not want to have to go the store and get more eggs!)

 

all the ingredientsWhile the eggs were cooking I laid out six paper towels and put a sliced english muffin on each.  After the eggs were done, I cut them into six sections and put one piece on each of the english muffins. Then I added the cheese and the frozen sausage (it was precooked), wrapped the sandwich in the paper towel and put the whole thing in Reynolds Wrap (although you could use a zip loc bag).   I took all six and threw them in the freezer.  Altogether it took about 20 minutes.

Finished

The real test was yesterday morning when I put the first one in the microwave (minus the reynolds wrap).  It tasted fantastic and I knew it was low fat because I had made it!  So in my humble opinion this is a great frugal recipe!

Harris Teeter- great deals for the week

Besides the Cottonelle toilet paper there are a few good deals at Harris Teeter. (I only included coupons that I received in the mail on 09/09/09 so hopefully most people in Hampton Roads got the same ones I did. But there are also some great regular price deals.)

Blueberries and Rasberries are $1.50 for a 6 oz container.

Harris Teeter brand canned corn, peas and green beans are 3/$1.00

Herbal Essense Shampoo $1.99 before the $1.00 coupon in the Redplum received in the mail 9/9/09.
Final price : $.99

Harris Teeter 8 oz cans Tomato Sauce $.20 each

Caribou Coffee $6.99 before the $2 coupon in Redplum received in the mail 9/9/09
Final price $4.99

These would be great deals for people who stock pile ingredients for cooking later!

Great Deal on Toilet Paper

Harris Teeter has their Cottonelle Toilet Paper Buy One Get One Free this week if you have a VIC card! If you choose to buy just one you get it at half price. In Virginia Beach one package is $10.99, so half price would be $5.50.

But before purchasing you can go to Cottonelle and give them your e-mail address to print a $.50 off coupon. Harris Teeter will double this coupon, so it makes the toilet paper $4.50! With 12 of the double rolls inside that makes it about $.38 a roll!

Express Coupon

I don’t see coupons for Express that are this good often, so I wanted to pass it along. $10 off of $20 at Express!

The coupon expires on 9/13/09 so you only have a few days but I bet this could make some stuff already on sale an even better deal!

Rite Aid Simplified

One of my readers said that she would like the Rite Aid post broken down step by step, so I am going to try to do that now. I can only do this with one scenario, so I chose Scenario # 1 on my previous post.

1. Go to riteaid.com to watch videos.

2. Watch the video listed under $7 for Nexxus products.

3. Print the $3 Nexxus coupon.

4. Continue to watch videos for any products you like.

5. After you have watched enough videos, print the $5 off of $20 coupon from that website.

6. Now you can close the Rite Aid web site.

7. Go to Physicans Formula rebate information and decide which make up you would like to try for free. Print the proper form.

8. Go to your local rite aid with the coupons and the form.

9. At the front door, grab the September 2009 Rebate Directory for future use.

10. Select the Nexxus product of your choice- make sure you check with wording on the coupon that the item you select is eligible.

11. Select the VO5 shampoo or conditioner of your choice- they had many scents when I was there this morning!

12. Select the Physicians Formula Organic Make Up of your choice. Make sure it has the pink “Try Me Free” sticker on it and is listed on the form you have.

13. Proceed to cashier to check out. Make sure to present both coupons!

14. Hang onto your receipt- you will need it for both your Physicians Formula rebate and your Rite Aid Rebate!

After church tonight, I will post on how to set up Rite Aid on-line rebates (they call them Single Check Rebates or SCR). If you want to give it a shot yourself, here is the link. Rite Aid is the easiest, which is why I chose to start with them! Hope this helps to see the step by step break down!

Rite Aid: Make up and Shampoo

There are several sales scenarios at Rite Aid, so I will try to spell all of them out clearly below. They all involve rebates so know that some of this money will have to come out of pocket now, but you will get it back later.

Also- when you go to Rite Aid, they will have their sales flyer in the front of the store. If you get the paper this will be the same one you already have. However next to it is their September 2009 Rebate Directory. This is everything that will have a rebate for the month of September. Go ahead and pick one of those up too. I usually take a minute each month to go through that flyer and circle everything I would potentially buy. Then, when I clip coupons I keep that flyer nearby and clip coupons for the items that are in it. A coupon + a rebate usually makes a good deal.

Make-Up
Everyone can take advantage of the full rebate on Physicians Formula make-up. Rebates are available on their 100% Natural Organic Mascara, Mineral Wear® FaceBrighteners™ and BronzeBrighteners™, Bronze Booster™ and Make Up Removers. Whichever one you decide on, you need to make sure in the store that it has a bright pink sticker that says “Try Me Free.” Then fill out the rebate form and send it in. Only one rebate per household. You need that pink sticker, the receipt and the UPC out of the product. The forms are easy to read with all of the requirements.
Final price: FREE after rebate

Okay now to the different scenarios:

No matter which scenario you choose, you need the Rite Aid $5 off of $20 coupon. This is obtained by watching Rite Aid videos on line. Also most of my scenarios involve shampoo, so be sure the videos you watch include the ones needed below. If you see any other products you would normally use, or products with rebates feel free to enjoy!

Below are a few Scenarios that will work. Once you see the theme, you can figure out how to combine items you would like with rebates and coupons to personalize your deal!

Scenario One:
One Organic Make-Up Product ($9.95)
One bottle of Nexxus Shampoo or Conditioner ($12.99 a bottle)
One bottle of VO5 shampoo or conditioner ($.79)
Use $3 off coupon for Nexxus from watching the video
Use $5 off of $20 coupon for purchase from watching the video
This should make your total out of pocket expense about $16.00, depending on tax where you live

THEN… you mail in the rebate for the make- up ($9.95 back- see the pink sticker on the make-up) and submit the on-line rebate to Rite- Aid for the Nexxus and VO5 shampoos ($5.00 rebate on the shampoo).
FINAL COST: About $1 after rebates

Scenario Two:
One item of Physicians Care Organic Make-Up (should be about $9.95)
One bottle of Tresemme Shampoo or Conditioner (should be about $5.49)
8 bottles of VO5 at $.79 each= Total $6.32
$1 off Tresemme On-Line coupon (from the videos)
$5 off $20 Rite Aid coupon (from the videos)
Total Out of Pocket: Rougly $16

THEN submit the make up rebate that you printed earlier and the $5 Rite Aid rebate on-line for the shampoo
Final Cost After Rebates: About $2

Scenario #3: (This one is if you like Nexxus Shampoo)
One $12.99 bottle of Nexxus Shampoo
One $12.99 bottle of Nexxus Conditioner
$3 off Nexxus coupon (from watching the video)
$5 off of $20 at Rite Aid (from watching the video)
Total Out of Pocket roughly $17.98

THEN Submit the $5 Rite Aid rebate on-line for the Nexxus Shampoo and Conditioner
Final cost: about $6 a bottle, which is a good price for this Shampoo

Do you see how it works? You just have to be creative and be willing to stock pile stuff. Yes, Scenario #2 involves 9 bottles of Shampoo and conditioner, but then you won’t have to buy any for a good long while!
