Reminder: $1 for 3 Redbox DVD Rentals

Don't forget this deal that is going on at Groupon right now.  It will be over soon so go HERE and get your 3 movies for $1.

Don't know what Groupon is?  It is a "Group Coupon" that is set up so that X # of folks buy them then the deal is on, if X doesn't buy them then the deal is off.  The deal can be between 15-90% off products and services all over the world.  The closest to our area is the Macon deals but I watch Atlanta, Savannah/Hilton Head, Columbus, and Albany.  I also watch Chattanooga since we will be in Lookout Mountain area in September.  I am keeping an eye on Charleston since that is our anniversary destination next year...for our 10 year anniversary!  :-)

Why do you coupon?

Sunday morning when I opened up our church bulletin I was reminded why I coupon.  Isn't that an odd time and place to be reminded of something like that?  Not really.  I've mentioned before that our church supports various ministries locally and elsewhere but one of the local ministries is an outreach for the migrate workers that seasonally come to our very large farming community.  They ask for donations of basic items:  deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, disposable razors, soap, washcloths, shaving cream, combs, gallon size zip-lock bags, shampoo.  If I wasn't using coupons then going out to purchase these items, even just 1 of each, would put a squeeze on our wallet for that week or month.  Since I use coupons, I have many of these items sitting in our "Cheerful Giver" box already just waiting for a need to arise!  How many of you picked up FREE toothbrushes at Kroger about a month ago?  How many of you picked up FREE Colgate toothpaste at Kroger a couple of weeks ago?  How many of you found the Christmas zip-lock bags on clearance and got them nearly free with coupons?  I could go on and on!

I realize that there are families out there that coupon because they HAVE to.  The past few years have been more than difficult, financially, and the only way they are able to put food on the table is to use their coupons.  Those people are my coupon heroes!  They have found and perfected a way to keep their family going because they are willing to put in the effort to save every cent they can at the grocery store and beyond.  I know that our situation is different.  I coupon because I want to be the best steward I can of the finances that the Lord has entrusted to our family.  I coupon because I have found it to be the best way to fill our cupboards, cabinets, linen closets, and the "Cheerful Giver" box.  I coupon so that when I see a need in our church bulletin my family can rise up and respond to the need.  I love the fact that the migrant workers that come to our area will not only be shown love by being given a bag full of necessities but will be told about the Good News of Jesus Christ at the same time!  I can definitely get behind a ministry like that.

So, to make this short post longer, when we got home, I pulled out the list in our bulletin, grabbed a bag and headed to the "Cheerful Giver" box.  I have more shaving cream than I could use in about 2 years.  Last year I picked up a TON of FREE disposable Bic razors and the Hydro razors.  A few weeks ago I was able to get a few of the FREE Reach toothbrushes and I already have more of those than we need.  I added FREE deodorant to the bag along with other items all of which I picked up for free or under .50 each!  I am so grateful for God's timing with this little list of needs in our church bulletin.  I had come to a point where I was asking myself if I really wanted to keep doing this.  God heard my unasked question and answered it with a resounding YES.  :-)

Request By Belks


Belk “Joins Hands” with Community Partners
for Spring 2011 Charity Sale
Grassroots event to benefit local charities and schools

CHARLOTTE, N.C., February 25, 2011 — Belk invites schools and other nonprofit organizations in the company’s 16-state market area to participate in its semi-annual Belk Charity Sale, Saturday, April 16, from 6:00 – 10:00 a.m. The four-hour, in-store shopping event offers an excellent fundraising tool for participating organizations and an opportunity for customers to support local charities while taking advantage of special discounts on purchases during the event.

Belk Charity Sale tickets are available now to participating nonprofit organizations for sale in advance of the event. One hundred percent of the proceeds from each $5 ticket sold will be retained by the local charity. There is no limit to the number of tickets charities can sell, or to the amount of money they can raise. Belk will provide tickets and informational materials at no cost to each participating organization. 

Beginning Friday, April 8, tickets may also be purchased at Belk stores with all revenues from in-store ticket sales equally divided among participating charities and schools in each local store. In 2010 Belk’s Charity Sale raised more than $9.5 million for hundreds of participating charitable organizations.

On the morning of the Belk Charity Sale, the first 100 customers in each store will receive free Belk gift cards ranging in value from $5 to $100, and a chance to win one of three $1,000 Belk gift cards being awarded company-wide. Also, participating charities and schools will be registered to win one of three $1,000 donations from Belk in a company-wide drawing.

Charity representatives interested in taking part in this one-of-a-kind fundraising event should contact their local Belk store manager for more information. In order to participate in the Belk Charity Sale, organizations must have an IRS Section 501(c)(3) designation from the Internal Revenue Service.

Dogwood Festival-Perry

The Dogwood Festival is coming to Perry April 9th-10th.  The shops along the main drag are usually open and sometimes have a few good deals available along with arts & craft booths.  I always enjoy myself slowly strolling down that main road looking at all the neat things for sale, listening to the children laugh, watching families forget, just for a moment, the cares that weigh them down.  Maybe I'll see you there!

Thanks Hollie!

Hollie commented to share this deal she found: "It's gonna be a great coupon day! Wal-mart on Booth Rd. has the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razors on clearance for 5.00. So use the 4$ off coupon and pay ONE dollar! I found them up by the registers. Across from the candy at the check-out. There was also a 4$ off ProGlides from a while back ago. Expires 2/28/11."

Dunkin' Donuts Coupons

For those of you who get the Telegraph there are some Dunkin' Donuts coupons in there today!  The only reason I noticed them is because I am "errand-girl" at work and my boss LOVES, LOVES, LOVES Dunkin' Donuts large coffee with cream and sugar.  After tax and everything it is $2.02 but with the coupons in todays Telegraph I will be able to save her a $1 on a couple of them.  After that it will be back to $2.02.  :-)

Warner Robins Groupon!!!

Oh, this is an exciting day for the booming metropolis of Warner Robins!  We have our very own Groupon today!!!  Pay $7 for $15 worth of food and drinks at My Father's Place on Moody Road right across the street from Second Baptist Church!  I got mine because the hubby and I eat there all the time, especially when it's getting close to Victory Sports Baseball/Softball season and he's getting those fields ready for children to play on.  So head over HERE to pick up your Groupon then when you go eat at My Father's Place check out my husband's handiwork across the street.

My favorite item on the menu is the stromboli.  Bubba and I split it.  Recently, with the weight loss going on, I've been eating alot of the nutty chicken salad.  The salad is excellent but I would much rather order the stromboli.  :-)  My husband's favorite is the MFP sandwich with extra meat and sauce.  He cleans his plate every time!

Thanks Baby Sam's Mama!  You rock!

E-Coupons (for my Mom!)

E-coupons are very interesting.  The difference between e-coupons and paper coupons are:

1) You can only use 1 e-coupon per product per transaction.  
Example:  I load a $.50 off 1 Smart Balance butter onto my Kroger card and I purchase 4 Smart             Balance butters, the $.50 deduction will only happen 1 time even though I purchased 4.

2)  You can use an e-coupon AND a paper coupon (at least for now).
Example:  I load a $.50 off 1 Smart Balance butter onto my Kroger card and I have a $.75 off 1 manufacturer coupon.  I purchase 1 Smart Balance butter for $2.50, I will owe $1.25 + tax.  

3)  Around here e-coupons can only be used at Kroger stores and their affiliates.  Publix, Walgreens, WalMart, CVS, etc. do not offer this option for their shopper loyalty cards right now.

4)  To use an e-coupon you just have the cashier scan your Kroger card.

5)  There is a texting option with the e-coupons but I don't use that so I can't tell you much about it.  Bubba and I have 200 texts a month each so getting texted anything on a regular basis isn't going to happen.  :-)

So, the first thing I would do is get a Kroger loyalty card.  I think you have to do it in the store.  Next, go to the Kroger website and create an online account and tie it into your loyalty card number.  Once you have done that there are 4 sites that you can sign up for to download e-coupons.  There is a limit as to how many your card will hold (I believe it is 150) so be aware of that.

The 4 sites are:

Another Bed & Breakfast Deal

Can you tell I enjoy staying at B&Bs?!?  I was perusing Groupon in various locations and came across THIS great deal in Tifton, GA.  A 1 night stay at a beautiful B&B called Three Graces at the Lankford Manor.  If we went in that direction for anything I would be grabbing this deal up!   It's only $60 for the Groupon and you get breakfast.  So, for any of you who head south or just adore Tifton this deal is for you!

Target-Vaseline Intense Repair

I ran into Target yesterday morning on the way to work to pick up a few bottles of Vaseline Intense Repair for .99 each.  I had $1 off Target coupons and $1 manufacture coupons and each bottle was $2.99.  I found the bottles that had the travel size Q-tips attached to them because you can't have too many Q-tips!  The $2.99 price is on the 10oz bottle.  If this is your lotion of choice then head over to Target but don't forget to check out the Target website for coupons first!  If you collect Sunday coupons then you have a 2 options, there is a coupon specifically for Vaseline Intense Repair for $1 off OR there is a $1 off any Vaseline product.  I heard that the Target website had coupons for Men's Vaseline lotion so if you have a man with dry skin that might be an option for you because the Men's Vaseline 10oz is also $2.99 each.

Happy deal hunting!  I would love to hear about the deals YOU found.  :-)

Another Macon Groupon!

Go HERE to check out the details for a discount at Signature Salon & Spa in Macon.  It is so nice to see decent Groupons that are closer to home than Atlanta (although I do like trips to Hotlanta).  Today's Macon Groupon gives you $50 worth of services for $25 or $100 worth for $50.  They mention a few of the services this Salon offers in the details of the Groupon but for more information you can check out their website.  I was hoping for an opportunity to try a keratin treatment but they start at $350 and my hair is LONG...

If you snag this, come back and let me know!  If you already go to Signature then comment and let folks know who your favorite stylist is.  :-)  Have a blessed day!

Deals Found This Week

At Kroger I picked up a few bottles of Gillette Men's Body Wash for the hubby for .50 each!  That is because they are on "close out" for $2.50 each and there is a $2 off coupon out there.  I had 6 along with one coupon that I downloaded to my Kroger Card, so 7 total.  Bubba is set on body wash for a long while!  I also picked up 4 tubes of Colgate toothpaste for free.  They were .98 each and I had .50 off coupons that our Kroger doubles making each tube free.  I am giving those to a friend who used Colgate because we are a Crest family.

Dollar General (and WalMart from what I hear but I haven't seen it myself) has Gain dryer sheets or Gain liquid softner for $3.25-4.25 and there are $3 off coupons out there.  We picked up 2 boxes of dryer sheets and 2 bottles of softner for a grand total spent of $4.59.  If you can find the items priced for $3.25 you will make out better than I did.  :-)

I picked up 2 bags of Sargento Sharp Cheddar shredded cheese for .50 each and 2 bags of Pepper Jack (I like spicey) for .50 each.  I stuck those in the freezer for another day when I need them for a recipe.  I picked up a bunch of Nyquil and Dayquil travel packs for free (they were $1.29 each and I had $1.50 coupons).  I'll be going back to Publix to pick up a few cans of Progresso beans and Green Giant canned veggies.  I wish, wish, wish there were coupons out there for Bertolli sauce because I really, really, really like that stuff and its BOGO this week.  Oh well, I'll have to wait for the next time it's BOGO unless there is coupon this Sunday!

Have a great week!

I have not had the chance to go grocery shopping this month.  First Bubba was sick and then I got sick.  Thankfully there aren't any kiddos to pass this mess onto.  We are finally mended so it's my hope to pick up some fresh veggies and yummy meat in the next couple of weeks because we are well stocked in the canned veggie department.  Come on split chicken on sale next week!!!  :-)

Happy saving to you!

Lovin' Groupons Right Now

I am loving the offerings that Groupon is sending out these days!  Today is a great one if you love short getaways with your sweetheart.  It's $99 for 2 nights at a beautiful bed and breakfast in North Georgia on Lookout Mountain.  The great thing about this Groupon is that you can buy 2 of them and use them back to back, making your romantic getaway 4 nights!  They are offering 2 nights accommodations in a room with a queen bed, breakfast each morning, and complimentary champagne (we'll be skipping that part).  The Groupon expires in 1 year which gives you plenty of time to plan a romantic getaway!!!

Head over HERE and pick yours up today.

Valentine's Day Deal

Go HERE and get $40 to spend at FTD for $20!  Haven't decided what to give that special someone this year?  Flowers are always a great idea.  I love getting beautifully arranged flowers!  My favs are Gerber Daisies, roses, and calla lilies.
This Groupon expires in June so I will pick one up and send my Grandma flowers in a month or 2 just because we love her.  You can do the same.  This Groupon allows you to purchase 2 so you can send a bouquet for Valentine's Day and another occasion or for no reason (the best reason for flowers)!

Help Needed, Please

For any of my frugal friends out there, here is an area that I haven't mastered in finding deals: high end accessories.  I have my eye on a beautiful Coach purse but I will not shell out $200+ for it (even on Ebay).  How do you find those wonderful, high end, luxury items for HALF off or more?  I really have no idea how to do this other than Ebay.  Thanks for your help!

Monthly Totals


Here are the totals for January:

Total Shelf Cost:  $712.75
Coupons:  $229.28
Store Discounts:  $301.58
Rebates:  $70.97

Total Out Of Pocket:  $181.89 for a savings of 84%.

This breaks down to $45.47 a week.  I busted our budget this month by a little bit but I know I will get that back before the end of the year.  :-)  I still say that it was a good month considering I haven't seriously used coupons and shopped sales since September of last year.

How did you do this month?  Are you saving money?

Free Yoplait Yogurt

If you like yogurt then head over HERE and "Like" Yoplait.  They are giving away 1 million cups of yogurt because they've added calcium to it.  Good luck!
