Show & Tell ~

I am loving all these stock up deals!

My goal during this time of year is to stock up on regular products I buy for our family so that during the holiday season I can concentrate on the extra and special items I need to buy. My husband cringes every time I bring another can of veggies, box of granola bars or bottle of BBQ sauce into the house. But as the holidays get closer, I won't have to buy any of this stuff.

Because of my stock up strategy, for the last couple of years, I haven't spent much more out of pocket for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners not to mention all the festivities surrounding the season than I normally would. Last year was an exception as we had seven guests in our home eating three meals a day with us. I did end up asking John for a little extra money then.

Here are my favorite deals from Homeland this week:
I plan on making fish tacos for dinner one night this week so I used the in-ad bagged salad coupon on slaw mix instead of regular salad mix. I also happened to find Top Sirloin marked down...a little over a pound for $3.XX.

I found Kraft tearpads for $2 off ground beef when you buy (3) participating products. So I purchased three cans of Taco Bell Refried Bean ($1 ea) and then used the $2 coupon on a pound of 93/7 lean ground beef. We go through refried beans pretty quickly around here so this was not an unreasonable extra.

Of course the Keebler cookies, the Coffee-Mate liquid creamer, the bulk rice and the Hormel Compleat were ALL FREE!

And I couldn't turn down Quaker Chewy Granola Bars for $0.66 ea., Wholly Guacamole for $0.29 and Starbucks Frappuccino for my hubby for $ 0.49.

I've been stocking up on canned veggies for when I have company at Thanksgiving and Christmas. You can check out all the Homeland deals

As reported on some other blogs, Target has the Glade Fragrance Collection multi-wick candles marked down to $4.49. Use the $3.00/1 SS 10/4 and pay only $1.49 ea. Then submit the SC Johnson $5 rebate and break even after you pay for a stamp. Remember, you can do this rebate up to THREE times.

Target also has Snuggle Exhilarations liquid and sheets on sale for $3.99. Use the $3.00/1 RP 10/4 and pay only $.99. This deal, by itself, is enough to warrant a parking lot jig.

And don't forget the Mott's deal. Pay $8.75 OOP when you buy 5 specified products and get a $5 Gift Card.

CVS was quick and easy this week, as always. They had everything I went in for.

The Purex 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets were free with a coupon I received as a Purex Insider so I ended up paying $5.06 OOP (I used $11.50 ECBs from previous transactions)and earned $8 more ECBs. My hubby was happy to have ice cream stocked back up!

Walgreens was a little more we expect otherwise? But I have been enjoying all their great monthly Register Reward deals lately so I'll not complain any longer.

I purchased all the Dove deodorants for Coupons for Christ, paid $11.43 and received a $10 Register Reward that I haven't spent yet. The rest was done in three different transactions.

They were out of some of the things I went in for (namely the Purell and Chapstick) so I had to regroup once I got there. But I still made out pretty well. I started with $11.50 in Register Rewards, I paid out of pocket $16.88 plus tax and still have $40.50 to roll into other deals.

I was very excited to find the Patriot Candle and flower seeds on clearance to add to
Baskets of Hope (Christmas Gift Baskets for Single Moms).

How was your shopping week? Did you find any great unadvertised or clearance deals? I'd love to hear about it!

Thanks, Amanda! I love the pictures. They sure help. I guess I missed the Wholly Guacamole deal this week, but wasn't it a fun week? I am going to take advantage of the deal at CVS with the Lean Cuisine meals. I won their free lunch Friday a couple of weeks ago and those free meals will go nicely to make an easy $5 ECB with no cash outlay!

At CVS I scored big time. I took the survey to save $5.00. I also had a $10.00 CVS Buck. I bought the Tone soap and Colgate toothpaste. I used the coupons I had plus scanned my card and received another $1.50 from summer savings. I purchased 6 of the Revlon nail polish at $3.99 to receive $3.00 back on each one. I ended up spending $12.00 and change- received over $21.00 back. I ended up getting everything for free plus making money. Thanks always Amanda for giving of your time to teach us all of this.
