You might want to check with your local K Mart store, to see if you can take advantage of sensational deals. They are having double coupons upto $2.00!! That means a $2.00 coupon doubles to $4.00 off!! The sale at my store is going on from Oct. 1 - Oct. 5 (Wed-Sun)

My plan is to go first thing tomorrow morning, so I will post what I get, in the meantime gather all your high dollar amount coupons up to $2.00 and check with your store for details.

So I went back yet again to CVS today and I was strolling down the 90% aisle and here is what I got with my $5.79 ECB.....

(1) Febreeze plug in
(2) mini staplers
(2) hannah montana notebooks
(2) hannah montana suckers
(2) boxes of Flavored ice

I ended up owing .4o cents, but it was fun shopping down the clearance aisle (im thinking some Christmas stocking stuffers!) I did not get any ECB back, but I have a few more deals brewing, and I'll post them later.

By the way the febreeze plug in is normally $8.49, they are on sale for $6.99 (there is a $5.00 coupon in the recent P&G insert) making them only $1.99 this week, Im going to go back and get a few more.


I believe the Lil swimmers coupon has expired off the sidebar, but still .89 for an 11 pack of Lil swimmers is a great deal at CVS. Check out the new coupons that are on the right side of this page.


Here is what I got at CVS this morning.....

It is that time of year again, just when all the halloween and fall items are put out on display the summer clearance racks are marked down BIG TIME. This is the best time to pick up clothes for next summer, and when you start to stock up after a season it will seem like common sense. Old Navy has mark downs as low as .49 for kids tank tops and flip flops for next summer.

I know it is hard to get in the summer mode, but take a look at the clearance racks when you are out and about at any store. Some stores have sales as good as 90% off. You just can't afford to miss sales like these.

Stop by your local Old Navy store for rock bottom prices.

This past weekend in the coupon inserts, there was a $3/off 3 Johnson and Johnson products coupon. This counts towards the Buddie bars, which are single bar soaps for kids, and they run .99 cents - $1.19 at most stores. I always get mine at CVS. Anyhow you can get three FREE with that coupon.


Well this week I have put together a coupon package for baby. You will receive name brand coupons for your little one if you win. All you have to do is leave your name and your e-mail address so I can get in touch with you. I will randomly pick a winner Saturday morning. Good Luck!

Do you feel like shopping? How about trying on a pair of jeans and receiving a FREE movie ticket to AMC theatres? That is exactly what American Eagle stores are doing!! My sister just gave me this GREAT tip today (Thanks Lisa)! I did some research and found out that if you buy a pair of jeans you get 2 movie tickets. But heck trying on a pair of jeans that you may not purchase and then receiving a FREE movie ticket, sounds pretty good to me!

From what I have researched it looks like this is not a new deal, so this offer expires next week.
So if you have some time this week and want to take the kids to the mall, have them all try on a pair of jeans and then treat them to the movies afterward. You will be the coolest mom ever!

This morning as I stopped in to get my paper, I saw that a pack of Little swimmers were down to $2.18, + I had a coupon for $1.00 off Little swimmers. Total = $1.18

When we first moved in to our home 5 years ago we planted a blackeyed susan plant that had 4-5 flowers on it. Well one of my good friends is in the landscape business and she told me to "sprinkle" the seeds in the center of the flower in early fall so that the flower would spread. Every year we "sprinkle" these centers along our flower beds and we have watched them grow year after year.
This is a great way to fill your flower beds or give some to your friends to do in their flower beds. They are hearty plants that last most of the summer and they are beautiful. What an inexpensive way to add to your landscape!

I made another CVS run this week and while I was there I noticed the summer clearance sale. It is up to 90% now. Needless to say you can really stock up on summer goodies for next year.

I picked up 2 kiddie sprinklers for .79 each, snorkel sets for .59 each, beach balls for .29 each and some other pool toys. I spent some of my ECB's, so I had no OOP expenses!!

Check out your local CVS to take advantage of these SENSATIONAL deals.

I just had my first experience with cash4books, and it was a great one! By nature I love to
"get rid of things" I no longer use or need. I love to give things away if I know someone can use them or I love to sell things for extra "mad money".

I thought the whole process with cash4books ran smoothly. You basically go through your books and enter an ISBN# on the back of the book to see if and how much you will get. There are so many ways to make extra money online and this is a great resource.

If you have any books you no longer use or need,click on the right hand side of this page and click on cash4books. You have no out of pocket cost,not even for postage!

I just have to mention Good Old Days, for any local or metro detroit readers. This will be the 45th annual Richmond Good Old Days Festival. There is so much to do for the family all weekend long. Saturday highlights are the childrens parade at 11:00 a.m. on Main Street and the fireworks show at 10:00p.m and Sunday is the GREAT MICHIGAN PARADE, which starts at 1:30 p.m.

For more details check out www.richmondgoodolddaysfestival.org. There are just TOO many events to highlight.

Our family has been out here in Richmond for about 5 years now and enjoy this weekend very much. The children look forward to the parade every year. I remember our first year out here I wondered why I saw so many chairs lined up on Main St. the night before. Well, everybody picks their spot on Saturday by putting their chair out along Main St.

It is GREAT fun for the whole family and if you have not experienced it, come make new traditions.

Have a Great weekend!


Last night I sat down at the computer with some old books in front of me and checked out Cash4books, located on the upper right hand side of this page. Upon entering all my book codes 5 of them were accepted and I made over $10.00!! They PAY shipping and cut you a check, so there is no out of pocket expenses.

So click on Cash4books and enter in some old books of yours and see how much extra pocket change you can collect!

With school starting today for my kids I was forced to think about school lunches. At the cost of $2.50 for hot lunch per child, I know it is MUCH cheaper to brown bag it. I was carefully looking at prices today for snacks, veggies, drinks etc for packed lunches.

So this week at Kroger I noticed you could get a 24 pack of Ice Mountain bottled water on sale for $4.00! There is a coupon from last months insert for .50 , so doubled that would be a dollar off. $3.00 for 24 packs of water. That is 12.5 cents per bottle!!!

What a perfect beverage for my kids lunch at a SENSATIONAL price.

I did notice a SENSATIONAL deal at CVS, especially for new people starting off.
