If you scan your card at the Self-Scanner, it will print you CVS store coupons. This week, the coupon is $1 off any CVS brand paper product. The CVS brand toilet paper single rolls are on sale 2/$1! That means TWO FREE ROLLS OF TOILET PAPER! I've gone everyday this week and gotten two. My stores have been out of the CVS brand, so they were kind enough to substitute the single rolls of SCOTT's instead. Everybody is going crazy over this free toilet paper! =) If you can't find any or if your store won't substitute the Scott's, get a raincheck for the CVS brand.
I ran around doing all my grocery shopping today. I typically wait until the end of the "grocery ad sale" to do my shopping, but I wanted to cook some of the things that were on my list, so I planned my trip today. PLUS, by going today, I was able to get the Penny Item at Publix! I have missed it so much since they changed the penny item day from Sun-Mon to Wed. I can honestly say we do not need much at this point. Totally nothing frozen, that's for sure! Tony was a little upset with all the frozen foods I bought b/c we had to do some MAJOR re-arranging in the freezers. My case of free bottled water is holding my deep freeze closed HAHAHA! The only thing I am waiting to go on sale is Salsa...I'm hoping with Cinco De Mayo coming up, it will happen. I bought soooo many Special K cereals last week and got sooo many free milk coupons (8, I believe) that we are set on cereal and milk for the months to come. If I had room in my freezer, I would freeze the milk! HA! But, for now, I will hold onto my coupons for the FREE milk and buy as we need them.
So, here's my grocery list:

Well, looks like it's just Publix this week. I am in the need of chicken, so I may end up getting some from Bi-Lo (it's BOGO this week, making them $2.24 lb). Combined with my $7/$75 coupon, it may be what I need to do. I'll wait until next week's ad to see if there is a better sale or not. So, here's my list for Publix this week:

I LOVE these and they are freezer foods, so I'm stocking up. I've been paying $6.99 each at Walmart randomly when I have gone there, so this is a great deal for me.)
Wow, what a week! I went to Food Lion about 5 times! The cheese deal was that great! Here's what I did:

**You know what's funny? I had to buy Kraft Singles at Target last week for $2.25! I was totally out and thought one pack would get me through until a sale. Then, Tony asked if we had anymore cubed cheese? We didn't and WHAM! The Lord gave us a shower of a sale on CHEESE! With this sale and the FREE Borden cheese coupon that I printed 5 times, we are set on cheese for a good long time. Thank you, Lord for always supplying what we need!
The kids and I went to Chattanooga early yesterday morning. We had a good time in Target until Toys R Us opened (I thought they opened at 9am, but they actually opened at 10am). I also stopped at Starbucks to get a hot chocolate and got a free blueberry muffin because it was FREE PASTRY DAY. I never go to Starbucks because it's so expensive, but I thought I would get a nice treat this one time.
Ok, so here's the deals I found at Target:
(4) Gillette Body Washes $1.79 each (regular price at Chattanooga store, $1.99 at other stores) (4) Campbell's Cooking Soups $0.75 each (sale price)
Coupons used: -(2) $4/2 ANY Gillette Body Wash PG 2/21/10 -(2) $1/2 Campells Cooking Soups Printable I paid $0.16 plus tax! **Some stores will not allow overage, but my cashier did. If your cashier will not give you overage, according to Target coupon policy, they will adjust the coupon value down to the amount of the item, making the item free.
TOYS R US:
YAY! Our reason for going was to get the awesome deal on the Toy Story movies. I had a couple Toys R Us coupons to combine with it, so it really turned out great for us. I also found a great deal for Strawberry Shortcake, an excellent bday gift for Emy in June. Yes, I do shop early. I like to find deals and save them for occasions, like Christmas shopping in June in the clearance aisles!
(2) Toy Story Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack $16.99 each (sale price when you buy both TS & TS2 together) (2) Toy Story 2 Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack $16.99 each (sale price when you buy both TS & TS2 together) (1) Strawberry Shortcake Pool Set $11.99 (clearance) (1) Strawberry Shortcake Figure $4.99 (clearance) (1) Strawberry Shortcake Figure w/ Purse $5.49 (FREE when you buy $15 worth of Strawberry Shortcake)

Note: **The $10 Toy Story coupons are for upgrading from VHS's that we have of both movies. I was able to print 2 per computer. I got one set for us, one set to sell on ebay and will most likely make $20-$40, making all this FREE!
Michelle told me about a GREAT deal on Easter candy the other day! We were so blessed to be able to get to Rite Aid last night before they closed and wiped them all out of Hershey's candy! Rite Aid has these awesome coupons available: $3/$15 and $5/25, plus many more that you can use for your transactions.
Here's what I did:

Total: $1.87 plus tax **The girl took both of my $/$$ coupons. I asked her if they allowed this, and she just scanned them to see if it would work. It did, so she allowed it.
Since the candy was such a GREAT deal, I went to Amy's to print more coupons! Then, I went back and did the deal again. I only had (2) $3/$15 coupons, though. This time, a different cashier was there and she wouldn't allow me to use both $/$$ coupons in the same order. I was supposed to do 2 more transactions, but she just did this for me since my order total was at least $30 ($15+ $15 for both $3/$15 coupons). She said they just had a meeting about it last week (I guess my previous cashier missed that meeting).

We had a fun filled Saturday morning! PJ day at Chick Fila with tons of friends and then off to Dr. Seuss' birthday party at Cleveland State. It was so much fun and each child got a bag of goodies and my favorite, COUPONS!

Emy is "meowing" of course!
