Inconvenient Debt: Glenn Beck - A must watch video!

I love the Glenn Beck show, and I am glad he is on Fox News now instead of Headline News. Today he showed this startling fact about how the US has inflated our money supply to unheard of levels. This is a very troubling thing cause that is what inflation is measured by...the supply of new money. Every time the govt prints more and more money, the less purchasing power the dollar has, which means we get poorer and poorer! This is the govt's hidden tax on it's citizens! This is a must watch video!

Here is a link to get a FREE sample of Quaker Oats Mini Delights, which are a 90 calorie snack packs! They are trying to one up those 100 cal snack packs! Soon, we will be down to 50 cal snack packs, and then zero calorie snacks packs! lol.

Well since the Super Bowl is coming up on Sunday and also the LOTR marathon at Madmup's, I decided to do the Pepsi ECB deal going on, which is buy $20 worth of Pepsi products and get $10 ecb's back.

Plus, I had some extra ECB's to help out Dana and got some pull-ups for Conner! They have a deal where you buy $20 worth of Huggies products and get $5.00 ECB's back going on.

I was really hoping for a CVS coupon $ off/ $$ CVS order, which would of let me keep more of my ecb's. But not this time!

Transaction #1
(4) 2L Pepsi Bottles (4/$5.00)
(4) bags of Tostitos Chips (2/$6.00)
(1) 12 pack of Diet MD (3/$10.00)
Total: $27.41
CVS Weekly savings: $7.07
ECB's used: $20
Total Savings: $27.07 (99%)
Total Bill: $0.34
Tax: $0.00
Final OOP: $0.34
ECB's back $10.00

Transaction #2
(2) 21 ct Huggies Pull up 4-5T (onsale for $10.00 each)
**had 2 - $1.50 off Huggies Diaper coupons from 1/11/09 SS insert
Total: $25.98
CVS weekly savings: $5.98
MFG coupons: $3.00
ECB's used: $17.49 (used the $10 ecbs from trans #1)
Total Savings: $26.47 (102%)
Total Bill: -$0.49
Tax: $0.49
Final OOP: $0.00
ECBs back: $5.00

So that is $53.39 dollars worth of retail products, that I got for only $0.34! That comes out to $53.05 worth of savings! Oh, how I love CVS and their ECB deals!

Updated Yogurt Deal & Kashi Bars at Target

Thanks to Money Saving Mom for letting me know of a Target coupon for Yoplait Yogurt, and since you can use Target coupons in conjuction with MFG coupons equals even more savings!

Here is the link for the $1 off 4 Yoplait Yogurt (print this off 2x)
Here is the link for the $1 off 8 Target Yoplait Yogurt

Buy 8 Yoplait Yogurts and use $1 off 8 Target coupon + (2) $1 off of 4 coupon to get a total of $3 off of 8 (or $0.38 off each one)

Do this if you don't have a Meijer around you. I still think Meijer is having the best deal cause they have the Yoplait Yogurt on-sale for $0.50 and using the MFG coupon twice makes them $0.25 each! Thinking of you A Corgi! :O)

Also, Target has their Kashi bars on-sale for $2.67. Combine that with this $2 off coupon to get them for $0.67 each.

Preditory Lending Explained!

a href="" target="_blank">

As you may of noticed, I am a fan of the webpage "Campaign for Liberty". It is a site that was started by the followers of Ron Paul, who I wanted to be president of the United States. He is one of the few who really care about our freedoms, and limited govt involvement in our lives, something that this administration wont do! If your really want to know the truth on a lot of what is going on with our ecomony and gov't check out this site!

Here is actually a great article that talks about Preditory Lending.
It really explains how the whole housing mess came about and why the gov't is making it worse! Remember....Knowledge is power! Seek to learn as much as you can!

God bless,

Johnson & Johnson's Coupons

Here are 2 links to get Johnson & Johnson's coupons to get soap pretty cheap.

I know that Target has Johnson's buddies soap for $0.97 each (make sure you buy one more than the number you have for coupons cause they wont give them to you free! I have tried my hardest, but they wouldn't back down!).

CVS has buddies soap for $1.19 each (making it $0.19 each...which make good fillers).

I have heard that Meijer and Kroger have them as well but haven't verified the price here in Lafayette.

Johnson & Johnson's $2/2 Printable
Johnson & Johnson's $3/3 Printable

*also there was a $1/1 Johnson & Johnson's coupon in the 1/4/09 RP insert*

I have heard that this soap is very good even for adults! I have stocked up on them yesterday, but haven't gotten to use one yet! Plus they have a built in luffa as well! Some people say they smell like the Nerd's candy or Tutti Fruiti candy! Anyhoo...


Thanks to Deal Seeking Mom for posting these coupons way back on 1/10/09!

Pringles Deal - Walmart Spotlight

I am not a big fan of Walmart, but they do have exceptionally low prices compared to your other grocery stores. So, what looks like a so-so deal at Walmart is actually a pretty good deal anywhere else.

Currently at Walmart they have cans of Pringles chips - Buy 1 Get 1 Free deal going on. Normally they are $0.86 each per can at Walmart, so you get 2 for about $0.43 each. Also if you have a $0.30 off of 3 cans of Pringles coupon located in the 12/14/08 P&G insert, which would make them $0.38 each a can.

6 cans of Pringles ($0.43 each with B1G1 Free) - $2.58
$0.30 off 3 coupon - -$0.30
Total for 6 cans = $2.28 ($0.38 per can)

*** Note if you can get Walmart to take (2) $0.30/3 coupons you will get 6 cans for $1.98 or $0.33 a can. This is one reason I don't like Walmart cause they aren't coupon friendly and you probably wont be able to do that unlike other stores! ***


Here are the other Walmart deals going on (Thanks "Cent"sible Sawyer!)

2009 Coupon Database - My New Project

Hello all,

I am in the works at organizing an alphabetical complete listing of all coupon in the 3 different inserts via Google Spreadsheet!

I have only been able to put in all the coupons from the 5 - 1/4/09 inserts...3 - Smartsources & 2 - Redplums! (there was like 245 different coupons!). This way you can quickly scan down the alphabetical list and see if a coupon has been in the inserts lately and when it expires and where it is located! Hopefully this will make finding deals even quicker! Then they are also broken up into each insert...SS 1/4/09 and RP 1/4/09.

I will be working on getting the last 2 weeks put in asap. I might even get it set up that anyone can add coupons as they have time to make it more a group community project. This database is for anyone, so use it how ever you can. You can even link it on your own blog as well. Feel free to spread the word!

I hope this helps...and if anyone has any recommendations to help it get even better..please share!

Here is the link...

Plus, it is linked on the right hand of my blog as well!

Double Rebate Deals at Walgreens!

At Walgreen's this month they are offering a deal with Orajel FREE with their monthly Rebates.

It means you can get a full rebate twice on this project, and get double your cost on your initial investment! I think it is $8.99 at Walgreens (if they are still in stock) and you will get back $17.98 back! Nice!

Also if you are lucky to find the Auto Expressions Vent Fresh Elite Auto Air Freshener Starter Kit still in stock at Walgreens (I still havent yet), then you can submit this item in for a full rebate with Walgreen's monthly rebates and there is a MFG rebate as well. Us this form to get the MFG rebate. So buy it for $4.99 and get back $9.98 in rebates!
