Ok, Ok Mom! Here’s the Deals Breakdown!
May 28, 2009

Haha, my little ole’ Mama in Connecticut emailed me after I posted my blog yesterday, showing my 29-cent trip to Target.  She said “you must tell us how to do it!  Not enough to just show picture!”  Lol, ok Mom!  (I’ll post just the KRAFT Mayo deal, because I gotta run and shoot promos now.)

Ha! No, this is certainly NOT Kraft mayo, but it's Japanese Kewpie Mayo. I love this stuff.  You've probably seen it in certain sushi rolls or at the Asian market.  It's got rice vinegar and a different, creamier taste. Mmm...

1.  KRAFT Mayo on sale for $1.99 at Target

2. Print this coupon for $1.00 off Target coupon: http://www.organicgrocerydeals.com/forums/view.php?pg=coupon_generator

3. Print this manufacturer’s coupon for $1.00:

http://print.coupons.com/couponweb/Offers.aspx?pid=13903&nid=10&zid=xh20

Use both, and bada-bing!  If you don’t have a Target near you, just print out the $1 coupon.  Since it’s almost June, mayo goes on sale a LOT, so you can use that at your local grocery store.

Cheers!

Mayo For Life
May 27, 2009

Quick post today–

Someone asked me today why I don’t post about Wal-Mart more.  Well, I have a Super Target where I live, and only a smallish Wal-Mart with limited food selections.

Speaking of Target…all of this, was 29-cents!  TOTAL!

I'll be making plenty of potato salad for everyone here at the station this summer!

I won’t bore you with the details, but everything was on sale at Target, printed coupons for everything, combined those with manufacturer’s coupons and bada-bing!  Everything was free, and the Dove deodorant at the bottom was the most expensive, coming in at…29-cents!

Gotta run, talk soon,

Dion 🙂

Major 3-Dollar Sunscreen Coupons + The Krazy Coupon Lady!
May 26, 2009

After coming back from Dallas on Monday at 12:15am, and then going into work at 3:30am to anchor the 5am show, I conked out to sleep at 2:30pm yesterday.   My fiancé offered to go get groceries, and since I had a stack of coupons, I showed him the Target deals for this week.  (Shh, don’t tell him I told you this, but I think he was scared of the massive envelope of coupons. )

Hahaha!  See the Post-It Note lists I made to accompany the coupons!?

 He saved about $26 using coupons, (among his deals, 25-cents for two bottles of BBQ sauce) and said “coupons are amazing!” Lol, who says coupons aren’t manly.

Couldn't you see this for sale at Nordstrom's one day?  I think it's quite fashionable for a t-shirt about COUPONS! :)

Also pretty amazing is this t-shirt I ordered last week.  On the front, it reads “Krazy Coupon Lady” and in the back,  a hilarious “Pick another checkout lane, honey”!  How hilarious and so true!  While there’s a little bit of “Krazy Coupon Lady” in a lot of us, she’s a real-life blogger out of Idaho too.  (www.krazycouponlady.blogspot.com). 

See, aren't they cute?  I think they're on sale for $15 this week.

Joanie’s her real name, and she’ll be joining us live via SKYPE sometime in the near future (date TBD)—she’s sassy and fierce (if you couldn’t tell by the t-shirt design) when it comes to saving money and living the best life possible, so it should be a fun interview!

I actually ended up getting Hawaiian Tropic, because that one was cheaper with the coupon.

One of the coupons in the stack I gave my fiancé, was for $3 off Coppertone sunscreen. (Thanks to the Krazy Coupon Lady for that one! ) Coppertone wasn’t on sale, so I searched and found coupons for a LOT of brands!  Stack the coupons with the sale brand, and you’re golden.  (Pun definitely intended.)

Coppertone $3 off: http://coppertone.com/coppertone/index.jsp

Hawaiian Tropic $2 off: http://hawaiiantropic.com/Promotions/

Banana Boat $2 off: http://bananaboat.com/coupon.aspx (not sure if this is a printable or if it gets sent to you.  Let me know!)

Aveeno $2 off: https://www.aveeno.com/product_coupon.jsp;jsessionid=vdthqEB1xrzWhuiQY6BSdMt8two

Okay, time for lunch.  Speaking of lunch…

Yes, this was lunch yesterday.  Since I got about 2 hours of sleep the night before, and un-wisely hadn’t eaten anything for breakfast.  By the time lunch rolled around, I was so hungry, I didn’t wait for the pizza at the restaurant to cool down.  I just shoved it into a paper bag to bring home and eat.  This is what it looks like.

This is why being sleep-deprived, and starving is bad.

Ew. I know.  Tasted pretty good though!

Talk about discount:  This is a dress which retails on the HSN site for $169…now on clearance a whopping 90-precent! If you’re a size XS, you can get this dress for an insane $12.46!

I like the color!

Take it from me though– don’t buy it just because it’s 90-percent off.  Only if you truly like it! 🙂

Memorial Day Weekend Deals!
May 22, 2009

Here I am, shooting the Memorial Day Deals on-camera stuff.

Here I am, shooting the Memorial Day Deals on-camera stuff.

T-Minus 3 hours until the Memorial Day weekend for me…got some fun plans, but I’ll tell you about those later.  With no time to waste, let’s get wheelin’ and dealin’!

I’ve talked about www.Restaurant.com before, but they’re now offering 25-dollar gift certificates for a whopping 80-percent off this weekend!  Usually you can get the $25 for just $10, but now they’re TWO BUCKS!  TWO!  That’s less than….less than…chicken nuggets at the drive thru! The special code to use is…oh, how appropriate: “SPECIAL”!

I almost got a citation earlier this year for having the propane tank too close to my residence.  Whoops.

FREE CHEESE + CHEAP CHEESE!

Personally, I’m a fan of all kinds of cheese, but if you’re into soft, creamy, buttery brie, scroll down to yesterday’s post and you’ll see how you can get a free wedge from Alouette!  For all your chilli, taco, and snacking cheeses, KRAFT is promoting their bagged shredded and cubed cheeses so there’s plenty of coupons. 

COMBINE THESE AT TARGET and get cheese for about 50-cents!

Use THIS printable coupon: http://print.coupons.com/couponweb/Offers.aspx?pid=13903&nid=10&zid=xh20 for $1 off,.

Then another $1 off 2 packages at Target.  (Remember, store coupons + manufacturer’s coupons are allowed, and completely fabulous.) http://www.afullcup.com/target-coupon-generator (might have to sign up for this Full Cup site, but it’s free and well worth it. Here you can get older Target coupons that still work, but aren’t posted at the site.)

 *** $1 Flip Flops***

old navy flip flops

Limit 5 pairs per person-- be quick, I bet they'll all be gone fast.

PS:  Another tip…don’t be like me and buy loads of  newspapers on holiday weekends, hoping for lots of manufacturer coupons.  Actually, there won’t be ANY this Sunday, so save your George Washingtons, and hit up the newsstand next weekend.

 

Shout out to Jamie, one of the educators at Innovation Kids who loves the deals too! ;)
