Shopping Adventures : Stop & Shop 8/31

Share via email

 This weekend was a very exciting Stop & Shop weekend for Dizee. 


I was stoked when I saw these bad boys in the weekly circular….  The real challenge was making sure I hit the minimum purchase.


I ended up buying a bunch of staples I normally would spread out over a bunch of trips – King Arthur Whole Wheat and White Whole Wheat flour.  Soda for a family party I am hosting in a few weeks.  Dawn Dishwashing Soap (this is the base of a sugar hand scrub which is great!!! Post to follow next week). 


Overall I ended up saving $48 with my Stop & Shop card and $25 with coupons. 


But the biggest score?  This baby.


The boys have been eyeing this all summer.  It is a three in one slip and slide, pool and sprinkler.  Apparently, it is the Bentley of Slip and Slides…  It had been going for anywhere between $35 – $40.  I got it Saturday morning for 10 bucks!!!! 


Now, I just have to make sure I stash it somewhere out of site until next summer.

Shopping Adventures : CVS 12/30/2011

Share via email

I have a cold sore the size of Toledo… I want to shoot myself.  I have been told that Abreva is fantastic, so I wanted to give it a try.  However, it is a tad pricey ($19.99).

I went to the Abreva site where I found a $2.00 coupon.  Then, just before I left, CVS kindly sent me an email for $5.00 off a $25.00 purchase…. how sweet.

I bought the Abreva for $19.99 & a sippy cup for $4.79.  My total was $25.12.  I led with the $5.00 coupon, followed up with my $2.00 coupon and got the whole shebang for $18.12 with tax.

It is like I got a free sippy cup.  Just shows a little planning goes a long way.  I saved over $7.00 bucks!

Shopping Adventures : Rite Aid

Share via email

My grandmother is a bit of a Debbie Downer.  She put the kibosh on ‘Christmas Junk’ since, as she puts it, she is 89 years old & doesn’t need anything…  BOO!

So, I decided to get her stuff she can use – like toilet paper & Prevacid.  (Yes, BORING!)


Anyway, these Prevacid’s were $27.00 each with a $5 Up Reward.  I bought two (obviously) and used a $7.00/2 coupon that was in Sunday’s newspaper (it was kismet). 

The best part, unbeknownst to me, Rite Aid was giving away free Up Rewards when you spend over $50.00 as part of their Christmas Deal. 

So, in the end, I spent $47 dollars on two packages of Prevacid & got back $20.00 towards a future purchase. 

Nice!  ‘Tis the season!
