The New Reality Television Addiction

Some people close to me have a new addiction.

It’s very fun, frugal and educational so I thought I would pass it along.

At the nearby Norfolk Botanical Gardens there is an eagle and babies in a nest with a camera on them most daylight hours.

At last check two of the eggs had recently hatched and two very cute babies are making their way around.  The final egg still has not hatched.

So if you need something fun and educational to watch, why not check out Eagle Cam?

Two Good Reads

Every once in a while I read an article that makes me want to give the writer a big high five.

Today there were two:

An 11-Year Olds First Budget

I Don’t Have Time To Be Frugal (I wish I could have written this- it is how I feel deep down inside)

Enjoy!

Reader Shopping Trip: $1.78

This past Saturday (2/5) my co-teacher and I had the pleasure of teaching a coupon class at Melissa’s house in Virginia Beach.  She e-mailed me yesterday to show me how her first post-couponing class trip went (although she has been messing around with coupons for a bit).  I asked her if I could show you.

After all the store credit and coupon use, she received everything in the picture for $1.78 out of pocket!  Here is how she did it:

Rite Aid

Halls Cough Drops $1.00 each. Earn a $1UP! with purchase of 2. I had a $1 off (2) Halls coupon. OOP $1 Earn $1UP!

Betty Crocker Frosting and Cake Mix $2.00 each. Coupon for 75 cents off the purchase of both. Earn $4 in UP! with purchase of both. ($2UP! advertised, plus unadvertised $1UP! per item) OOP $3.25 Earn $4UP!

Mentos on sale for 50 cents. 50 cents off coupon. OOP $0

(2)Excedrin Menstrual 20 count on sale for $1.99. Each box had a $1 off coupon. OOP $1.98

Excedrin Extra Strength 20 count $1.99. Used $1.00 off coupon. OOP $.99

Excendrin PM 20 count $1.99. Had a $2.50 off MFR coupon. OOP -$.51

Old Spice Deodorant on sale $4 each. When you buy 2, you earn $3UP!. I had a BOGO FREE coupon. OOP $4.00 Earn $3UP!

Lysol Neutra Air Fabric Mist $2.50 each. Earn $1UP! when you buy 2. I bought two, and used (2) $1.00 off coupons. OOP $3 Earn $1UP!

(2) Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner $3.49 BOGO FREE, so $1.75 each. I also had a $2 off (2) Scrubbing Bubbles. OOP $1.49.

I cashed in my $15 in expiring UP! Rewards I previously earned.

Total OOP- $1.08 EARNED $9UP! Rewards

Walgreens

(3) rolls of Walgreens Aluminum Foil $.69 each when you use in-ad coupon OOP-$2.07

2 Gain dish soaps on sale $1.00 each. Used (2) $.25 off coupons OOP-$1.50

2 Febreze Fabric Refresher $4.71 each

2 Febreze Neutra Air $2.50 each

I had (2) BOGO FREE coupons. The way the coupons worked out is one free Fabric Refresher and one free Neutra Air. Plus, when spending $10, you earn $2 RR

Total OOP-$11.70 PLUS $2 Register Rewards

So her actual total spent in cash was $12.78. BUT she now has $11 in store credit to use on her next visit making her Out Of Pocket cost $1.78!

Thanks so much for sharing Melissa!

Advertisements

I advertise on my blog using Google Adsense, as well as a few other advertisers.  I have TONS of categories blocked including political and religious ads, as well as other things I consider inappropriate material.

Unknown to me it looks like an advertisement for a company called Quibids had made it onto my blog.  I have gone into my settings and tried blocking additional advertisements.  In addition I will be working with my computer guy tonight to make sure we can get rid of it.

I REALLY appreciate the people who e-mailed today to let me know.  Especially on Sundays I am usually at church until about 2 in the afternoon so the blog is running without my supervision.  PLEASE let me know if any inappropriate material pops up so I can get rid of it immediately!

Food Lion Coupon Policy

I have had many readers and coupon class attendees tell me that they have had a hard time using coupons at Food Lion.  And while Food Lion doesn’t double or triple coupons, occasionally they have good deals that make a stop by your local store worth it.  So I wanted to post their coupon policy for your reference:

They do not take expired or competitors coupons.

They do accept manufacturer’s coupons, internet coupons, and  catalina checkout coupons.

They do not give cash back.

You can not coupon stack and they will take a maximum of ten coupons for the same type of item.

They do not accept internet coupons that appear to be fradulent or FREE coupons (meaning the coupon is specifically for a free item).
