A Thank You from Lifetouch!

Does your school use Lifetouch for their school pictures?  Well ours does, and I never buy pictures, for a couple of reasons.  One, they cost way too much!  Two, I never like the way they come out!  And three, I can do it myself, make them look professional, and spend a fraction of the cost.

Now that my rant is out of the way, something pretty awesome that they did this year was to provide a thank you to their customers.  Even if you did not order pictures, they sent a proof sheet home for you to review.  If you did order, than you obviously received your pictures.  The cool part - inside the envelope with either the proof sheet or the pictures was a thank you. 

A promo code to enjoy $20 off an order of $20 or more at  How awesome is that?  And now I have $80 worth (4 kiddos) of Christmas presents to make!!  And to think I almost threw them all away! 

Now, go be creative!

A trip to Walmart..Doesn't happen to often any more.

Well, I don't visit Walmart to often anymore, but I made a trip with baby boy today.  We got a lot for the amount we paid and overall, it was a good tip.   Mainly because for the first time, I did not have to argue with the cashier over their coupon policy.

A lot, right?  10 bottles of soda, a bag of cheese, apples, pepperoni, juice boxes, bread, Tide, french fries, 3 bags of carrots.  Retail : $36.96, after coupons, I paid: $13.62.  A savings of $23.34, or 63%.

How did I do it?  Some was from in-store specials, like I saved a dollar on the apples.  The 8 bottles of Dr. Pepper were free from a coupon, "Try Dr. Pepper TEN for free"  SS 10/9 or 10/16.  The rest came from the fabulous savings from the $2/1 Tide product from P&G 10/30.  Since Walmart gives you the full coupon value, I bought the smallest Tide possible (travel size $.97 each) and the additional $1.03 was taken off my total purchase.

I love how baby boy is eyeing up the soda in the background!  Really he was begging for an "pap-ple"!

Happy shopping!

A day of retail therapy...

Now that all of the craziness of Halloween is over, a much needed day of retail therapy was in store.  So, baby boy monkey and I headed out for a day of shopping.

Stop #1 - Rite Aid of course.  Not much excited me in their add this week, so I only bought some shampoo. 

Herbal Essences or Aussie Shampoo, Conditioner, or Stylers $2.99    
Buy 1, Receive $1.00 +Up Reward    
$1.00/1  Herbal Essence or Aussie product from PG 10/30
Pay $1.99, Receive $1.00 +Up Reward
Final Price:  $0.99
Pantene Shampoo, Conditioner, or Stylers $3.50      
Buy 2, Receive $2.00 +Up Reward 
Or $1.00/2 Pantene products from PG 10/2
Use $3.00/2 Pantene products, excludes trial size from RP 9/25
Or $3.00/2 Pantene products, excludes trial size from RP 10/30
Pay $6.00, Receive $2.00 +Up Reward
Final Price:  $2.00 each when you buy 2 

So, retail cost was $20.16, sale price $12.98, less coupons $3 + tax  = OOP $10.16, but I had an UPR for $7 from last week, which brings my total to 3.16, the I received $4 in UPR, so it was like they paid me $.84 for shampoo!!

Stop # 2 - Fashion Bug - I love Fashion Bug, but I love their coupons more.  So, I bought a much needed pair of brown dress pants, a new pair of jeans, 2 tank tops to go under my awesome sweater collection, and funky new ring.  Total retail cost $112.96.  But Fashion Bug was having an awesome 30% off everything sale today and I had two coupons for $10 off a purchase of $25.

So when it was all said and done, for over $100 worth of merchandise, I paid $43.34.  A savings of $69.62.  That is a 62% savings!

Stop #3 - JC Penney - I originally went in looking for dress shirts for my hubby, but I didn't see anything worthwhile, so, when in doubt, shop for yourself.  On the clearance rack of course.

 So, I found these four shirts.  A total retail value of $128.00.  They were marked down on the clearance rack to $2.97 each.  That brought my bill to a whopping $11.88.  BUT WAIT!  I had a great coupon that was $10 off any purchase of $10 or more. (That is like the golden ticket of couponing!!!)  So I paid, drum roll please.......... $1.88 for 4 shirts, or .47 each.  Wowza, what a great deal and a $126.12 savings, that's 99%!!

So, now that my retail therapy is done for the week, it is time to start focusing on great deals for a huge Thanksgiving feast!

Happy shopping!
