    Great Musselman's Apple Sauce Coupon!

    My family LOVES applesauce!...and here's a great coupon for Musselman's!
    I plan to hang on to this one and watch for a sale + double-coupon day.  OR, combine it with a ? future Target store coupon + sale...

    $1/2 Musselman’s Apple Sauce 46-48oz
    (Expires 30 days after printing)

    Super Fun Target Run 12/29/10!

    Target Trip 12/29/10 $1.86 + tax! (73% OFF!)

    I had a "Super Fun Target Run" today!  Okay, so the rhyme is a little hokey...but, after checking out, it was the first thing I thought of!  Today was a particularly good Target Trip because I made another attempt at using two of the same type of Target Coupons in the same transaction (x4!)...and they all went through without a hitch!  Yay!  No more dividing my Target Trips into separate transactions! (supposedly some Target stores allow this and other's don't) 

    Here's what I chose to buy today:

    8-2L Bottles of Coke/Sprite, $1.00 each
    = $0.75 each!

    Wonderful Walgreens Trip 12/29/10!

    Walgreens Trip 12/29/2010 (75% OFF!)

    Another Great Walgreens Trip today!
    Ten FREE bags of chex mix (I actually earned $0.10 buying these!)
    One $0.74 Ban deodorant
    One FREE colgate toothbrush
    Two $0.49 Herbal Essences (shampoo & conditioner)!
    Two FREE Herbal Essences (styling products)!   
    Whew! :-) 

    For more information re: how I got these deals, and to find other great deals at Walgreens this week, visit my earlier post:  "Walgreens Deals week of 12/26 - 1/1".  Also, remember you can scroll down to the bottom of the blog page to search for and print your own coupons!

    Copps Trip Wed 12/29/10

    Copps Trip Wed. 12/29 $10.53 (+tax) (85% OFF!)
    (not including $25 in gift cards shown above)

    Great 85% OFF Copps Trip Today!  I did this in three transactions & used the purchase of gift cards to bring each transaction's reg price total up above $25.  I most often buy Subway gift cards or Copps gift cards to do this.  This time, I even used one of the Copps gift cards I had just purchased in a subsequent transaction!  Now, I wish I had used the other $10 Copps gift card today, too...if I had, my total today would have been $0.53 + tax!  There were a couple of other things that didn't go as well as they could have with this trip today (see below)...but I'm continuing to learn & grow...& there's always room for improvement, right? :-)  

    Here's how I did this:
    ("mc" = manufacturer's coupon, "OOP" = out of pocket):

    Transaction #1:
    5-boxes of Kellogg's Cereal, $1.99 each (when you buy 5) 
    + $3.80 in manufacturer's coupons, doubled (search "Kelloggs" in the database at the bottom of the blog page...many are $0.70/1!)
    = $0.77 each!  Unfortunately, as it turns out, one of the cereals I purchased (the Corn Flakes Cinnamon) wasn't part of this promotion.  So, I didn't get these for the $1.99 each sale price, like I was expecting.  :-(.  (but, I'm still pretty happy with paying $0.77 each!)
    1-$15 Subway gift card
    = $15
    Subtotal: $18.85
    ~Used $5 Copps Jingle Bucks Gift Card
    Total OOP = $13.85

    Transaction #2:

    $2/1 Tribe Hummus Coupon!

    There's a high value ($2/1) printable coupon available for Tribe Origins Hummus!  I've heard this is sold at Walmart...but I'm not sure where else in our area yet.  I'll update this post when/if I find out.  Or, if you know where to find this brand, please feel free to leave a comment to let us all know!

    Here's how to get the coupon:
    2.  Enter the sweepstakes found on the “Sweeps” tab

    Walgreens January Coupon Book List!

    Here's the list of January Walgreen’s Instant Value Coupons.  These should be available in a booklet in store on or about 1/2/2011 (valid 1/2/2011 thru 1/29/2011).  These are great coupons to have on hand because they can be stacked with manufacturer coupons...which leads to lots of great deals!
