I’m Ba-ack!

Well, sort of. I still don’t have the finances to obtain hosting for the old blog; but I have directed my domain to the free WordPress.com version of my blog and will use that for now. What does that mean for you? Well, I can still post everything I used to, except I will not be able to participate in some of the amazing giveaways I did in the past; the free WordPress.com website does not allow bloggers to add a RaffleCopter to a blog post. I can create an external link to a RaffleCopter, so I will look at doing that in the near future; or, if it is a prize I am providing, I can host the RaffleCopter on my blog’s Facebook page. So we do have other options!

.

Are you excited? I am! Some time this week, I will find the list of 2013 coupon inserts and post it; that way we will have it to refer to whenever we want. Are there any products you want coupons for, or want me to review (or find a good review for)? Let me know and I’ll do what I can! I’m still trying to get back into the swing of couponing. Speaking of which…I had begun to post my coupon binder on the blog last fall but lost it all with the loss of the hosting service. So that’s another task I can begin for you! If there’s anything else you’d like to see, let me know on here in the comments! And don’t forget to tell your friends that I’m back and to check me out!

Almost to a free pack of Oscar Mayer Selects!!

Click the image above to go to the Taste-A-Monials Facebook page and enter your own!

.

.

The last time Oscar Mayer ran this promotion, the people who participated earned a FREE Oscar Mayer Selects product (up to $9 value)! Right now, under the current promotion, the coupon value is up to $5.60 – and getting higher every day! If you’re not sure about trying Oscar Mayer Selects, keep reading. Otherwise, go now to enter your own Taste-A-Monial and also snag a $1 off coupon to use while you wait for the meter to hit the freebie mark!

.

I grew up on Oscar Mayer products. They are one of the best, if not THE best, product available on the market. Their foods are of a higher quality than most other brands, and they cook more evenly and thoroughly than their lesser-quality counterparts. The taste is unbeatable…or so I thought…

.

Since I participated in the last Taste-A-Monials promotion, I recently received my free product coupon. (I actually received two, no clue why since I only entered once, but oh well…) I used that coupon to pick up some Oscar Mayer Selects Angus Beef Franks, thinking that since it was Oscar Mayer, it would be just as good as the regular beef franks. I WAS WRONG.

.

It is better. Much, MUCH better. The Angus Beef Franks smell delicious when cooking, and simply BURST with flavor from the first bite until the last. Oscar Mayer has truly outdone themselves with their Selects line. If you have not yet tried them, what are you waiting for? Go to the Oscar Mayer Taste-A-Monials page on Facebook by clicking the image above. You can snag a coupon for $1 off, then go back and enter your own Taste-A-Monial to help that meter inch closer to yet another freebie!

A Great Solution for a Couponer’s Nightmare

<– Click here to order your Carttiara today!

.

If you’re like me, you have a full-sized binder stuffed with baseball card holders for your coupons, a notebook for writing down prices at various stores, pens and pencils, and all of your store loyalty cards. You probably have put several hours into organizing all of your coupons and arranging your binder exactly the way you like it. It can become quite the chore to drag the binder to the store, spend several minutes trying to get it to balance just right on the cart, then have to readjust it several times during the shopping trip because the motion of the cart caused it to slip from its precarious position. Occasionally you may even send it tumbling to the floor, scattering the contents everywhere and ruining several hours of work you put into organizing it all…

.

Tonight I found, courtesy of Mom ‘N Daughter Savings, a new, innovative solution. It’s called the Carttiara and it looks to be an amazing invention! A husband and wife came up with it together, because using coupons had become so stressful on her that she began to dread shopping. With her new invention, shopping has become a breeze, even during the busiest events (think double and triple coupons, LOL)!

.

I have not yet had a chance to order one, as I just found out about this item; but as soon as payday arrives, you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be a Carttiara enroute to me shortly after that check hits the bank! The cost of the Carttiara is $19.95 and there is a Lifetime 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Even though it is a relatively new invention, the Carttiara has already received some rave reviews. I can’t wait to try it out! Check out the videos below to see how it works!

A Quick Trip to Walmart Today

Last night another blog, Grocery Shop For Free, had posted some new deals at Walmart.  I decided to take advantage of a few of them today, and pulled some coupons out of the pile (haven’t gotten around to restocking my binder yet).  I was a bit disappointed when I actually went, because a couple of the things that were supposed to be on sale were NOT on sale.  I may try a different Walmart tomorrow though; I’ve found that, among the three Walmart stores I have within ten minutes of my house, there can be a wide variance in pricing and in sale items.  Armed with my coupons (plus a few extra ones for things I need), I went off to the store this afternoon.  The first item on my list, Bayer Aspirin, the store did NOT have in the 20-count bottles, which would have been a $0.78 money-maker (sale price $2.22; coupon was for $3/1).  However, they did have 24-count bottles for $2.97, so I still ended up a tiny bit ahead; just not as far ahead as I’d anticipated.  

.

I then went off to the baby care aisle to find Huggies wipes; I had a coupon, but nothing was on sale and they didn’t even have the smaller packs.  Back into the purse went the Huggies coupon, to be used another day (maybe at Target tomorrow; I have a coupon for Gold Bond Powder and it makes the travel-size FREE).  Pet care came next; I had coupons for three different dog treats.  Waggin Train Dog Treats were SUPPOSED to be on sale but were not, so I stashed those coupons away for another time.  Neither of the other two dog treats (Pupperoni and Milk Bone) were on sale, so I put those coupons away as well.

.

Off to beverages.  My store has the juice aisle right by pet care, and the soda is at the back of the store, right before Subway and dairy; but both sections were close to each other.  I first went to get some Crystal Light Mocktails – can I tell you, the Mojito Mocktail is to DIE for, even my super-picky son LOVES it – and they are priced at $2.68.  That is about $2 LESS than my local grocery stores.  With my $2/1 coupons I got from the Crystal Light Facebook page, I got each one for $0.68.  In the soda aisle, Dr. Pepper was supposed to be on sale but was showing regular price.  So I skipped that coupon as well.

.

Then household cleaning supplies, which is an aisle over from soda.  You would THINK the store would have ALL of the beverages in adjacent aisles, and maybe put household cleaning supplies by pet care; but no, that makes too much sense.  Let’s split it all up and make people run around like chickens with their heads cut off… ANYWAY, Brillo pads were another item that was supposed to be on sale – but all Brillo products (what few there were) were regular price.  Another coupon back into my purse.  Now the baking aisle, where I was searching for Louisiana Fish Fry breading.   Walmart was supposed to have it priced at $1.42, but it was more like $1.98 (can’t remember the exact price, sorry).  So I chose to skip that one as well.  Dole Pineapple Slices were in the same aisle – instead of being with canned fruits and vegetables, don’t ask me why – and lo and behold, it WAS on sale!  A small can was $0.78; and I had two coupons for $0.50/2, so vour cans cost me $1.06.

.

Off to condiments.  I had a coupon for French’s Mustard, which was not on sale but we are completely out.  I’m not one of those extreme couponers that snaps up 93 bottles of mustard just because I can; so we do run out of things from time to time.  LOL  I got two of the smaller bottles for $1 each, less the two $0.50/1 coupons; so I paid $1 for both.  I couldn’t find Heinz Vinegar at all; apparently MY Walmart doesn’t carry it.  That stack of coupons in my purse was growing bigger and bigger… I got two small bottles of Tabasco Sauce, regular price $1.24, minus $0.75/1, total for both bottles was $0.98.  I then went to grab some Mt. Olive Pickles, and found another reason to avoid this particular store; they, as so many other things, were NOT ON SALE.  Sale price was supposed to be $1.08, but the smallest ones I saw on the store shelf were $1.94.  I grabbed two anyway, we were out of those as well, and with the $0.75/1 coupons I paid $1.19 each (combined I paid $2.38).

.

I needed milk, so I went back to dairy and grabbed two gallons at $3.88 each.  I picked up two bottles of Hershey’s Syrup (25% free in each bottle, yay), $1.98 each but I had a coupon for $1/2 so I paid $2.96 for the two.  I also got two International Coffee Iced Coffees from the dairy case (ready to drink, no mixing necessary and SO yummy), they were $3.98 but I had two coupons for $0.75/1 so each was $3.23.  On the way back up front, I got five boxes of Kraft Mac ‘N Cheese, regular price $1.18.  I made out like a bandit on this one.  One box was free with a Macsurance coupon (special offer from Kraft on their Facebook page last month); and I had two BOGO printable coupons, max value $1.60.  When the clerk swiped the BOGO coupons, it gave me the FULL $1.60 off instead of the actual price of $1.18; so I ended up paying $1.52 for all five boxes.   I also stopped in the freezer section for Dole Fruit Smoothie Shakers; while I had two coupons ($1/2), I only used one because the choices were mixed berry or strawberry banana, and I cannot STAND banana-flavored anything (except for actual bananas, or baked goods that use real bananas).  So I picked up two of the Smoothie Shakers for $1.50 each, and paid $2 for both after coupon.

.

My final stop was up front, by the bakery.  King’s Hawaiian Rolls were supposed to be on sale for $1.98; and I had a coupon for $1/1.  I think it can go without saying, at this point, that the coupon came back home with me; the rolls were regular price, $2.98.  To the checkout I went.  Everything scanned at the correct price (yes, I watch), and she had no problems with any of the coupons (for once).  Pre-coupon total was $50.56; I paid $28.58 plus tax, so I saved around 45%.  Considering that 1) I had things I needed and no coupon to use, 2) I had coupons for some items we needed that were not on sale, and 3) Walmart does not double or triple any coupons; I think I did pretty darn good.  But I also think I’ll be shopping at a different Walmart from now on…
