Holiday Weekend=No coupons

If you usually buy your newspaper at the store, save yourself some money and a trip this weekend! Holiday weekends usually do not have coupons, and since there is no coupon previews that means no coupons!

I looked over the Giant Eagle ad and there is not much that impresses me.  My two favorite deals are:

Fiber One Yogurt- On sale for $2, load a $1 e-offer onto your Advantage Card plus use 0.50/1 coupon that was in the paper a few weeks back....FREE!

Scope- On sale 2 for $6 and if you buy 2 you will receive $2 OYNO, buy 2, use 2 0.75/1 coupons, pay $3.00 and get $2 off your next purchase catalina, like paying 0.50 each!

For giggles...

You might not find this as humorous as me but I am going to share it with you anyways :)

I have shopped at the grocery store 3 times in the past 4 days and every single time I check out I hear, "Did you hear about that new show called Extreme Couponing?" They seem completely thrown off when I say I have but I don't watch it.  Today they even asked if I did The Grocery Game (which I could be wrong but I believe you have to pay money for that site) which I DO NOT belong to.  I am not willing to pay money to save money....unless it's for newspapers :)

So when I came home this morning I told my husband I want to get a t-shirt made and it will say, "Yes I know there is a show called Extreme Couponing, and I do not watch it..." LOL

I love my cashiers lately, they are extremely nice about my stack of coupons, help me with the scenarios to make sure I get the cheapest price and most catalinas. The other day a cashier from the next line over realized I was buying a Twix (kid treat for making through day 2 in a row at the store!) and told my cashier to double check the price since it was scanning for higher.  She saved me 19 cents which isn't alot but it meant alot to me that she made sure I got the right price. They also always are nice to me even when I have 3 crazy kids going nuts!

Rochester Giant rock!

CVS-Green Bag Tag (free after ECB's)

CVS/pharmacy Green Bag Tag - "Tag your reusable bag" and get $1 ExtraBuck every 4th visit

CVS has a deal this week where if you buy a Green Bag Tag for 0.99 you will earn 0.99 ECB's (extra care bucks)! As I mentioned before this is a good thing to have for CVS shopping!

Get your coupons's going to be a GIANT week!

Woohoo!! It's going to be a week worth getting excited about at Giant Eagle.  All of these deals I mention begin tomorrow. Get your fingers ready to clip some coupons!!

The deal I got the most excited about was Mrs. T's pierogies which are on sale 5 for $10 and if you buy 5 you get 1 FREE instantly....but if you use 6 $1.00 off coupons you will get 6 boxes for $4.00.....which means STOCKUP!!! (The 6 for $10 price is not good so do not stock up unless you have coupons)

Another deal I am excited about is actually a money maker. Here's the specifics. Always Pads and Pantyliners, and Tampax are on sale 3 for $8. If you purchase 3 you will earn $3.00 OYNO (catalina coupon that prints during checkout to be used on your next purchase) Deal Idea:
Buy 1 Always pantyliner $2.66
use 0.50/1 coupon from I believe the P&G Brandsaver
use 0.50/1 GE e-offer
Buy 1 Always Pads
use 1.00/1 coupon from P&G
use 1.00/1 GE e-offer
Buy 1 Tampax
use 1.00/1 coupon from P&G

Pay $2.50 and earn $3.00 off your next purchase....0.50 MONEY MAKER! I am really excited because I actually just got some Always samples and in my samples there is a $2.00/1 always pads so for me it will be $1.50 moneymaker!

Zatarains Rice will be 0.25 a box after coupons...stock up if you have enough coupons!

Certain ice cream products have a spend $12 get $4 off your next purchase catalinas. One of them is Edy's Shakes and Smoothies...which there is coupons for $1/2 in this weeks Red Plum.
Deal Idea: Buy 10 Edy's Shakes or Smoothies (12.50)
Use 5 $1/2 coupons
Pay $7.50 get $4 OYNO which equals 0.35/piece! (my kids will love me and my coupons this week!)

Dole canned pineapple will be 2 for $1.00 after coupon (I never really buy canned fruit but I am thinking this might be a good buy)

Dial soap is 10 for $10...but if you have the 0.35/1 coupon for a few weeks back it will be $0.30! I am stocking up!

Stove Top-if you printed an internet printable from a few weeks back and have not used it yet, this week is meant for you! It's out of prints for those of you would didn't. After coupon Stove Top is 0.50! (I love making little mini meatloafs using Stovetop!)

Please head over to Lady Savings to view all the matchups along with links to internet printables.  I only mentioned a few deals I plan on doing but if all goes as planned I should get 70 items for $65.09 plus have money off my next purchase!

Giant Eagle this week

Sorry I didn't post earlier when the ad first came out but I am not too impressed this week!  A few things I plan to buy are:
Nature Valley Granola Bars on sale 4 for $12 and if I buy 4 I will earn 0.20 bonus fuel perks, after my coupons I will save $1.72 than if I bought 4 boxes at Walmart, plus if we fill up just my car with the bonus perks that's another $2.20 in savings)
Fruit Roll ups, I have coupons for these as well plus will get bonus fuel perks, my family loves these so I plan to buy them!

I do not think we need noodles, but if we do then I would buy 10 of the Giant Eagle brand ones so I could get an additional 0.10 fuel perks.

Bagged salad-Personally I think it's a waste and buy heads of lettuce...but if we liked them I would buy the 2 for $5 and get the additional fuel perks.

Head over to Lady Savings for the complete coupons matchups, you can get FREE toothpaste and cheap toothbrushes this week.  I have about 12 toothpastes and 10 toothbrushes in my linen closet so I am cutting myself off in this department.
