Silly Bandz .99 cents at Walgreens

It seems like pretty much every Walgreens has all of their Silly Bandz for only .99 cents now. I guess they haven't been selling as good lately since most schools have banned them. But if your kids are into them these would make good Easter Basket fillers. I was able to buy my son the following ones : Spider Man, Iron Man and Toy Story all for only .99 cents each pack this past week.

You have received the following Discounts
Web Code applied to order: X3CHEAZZ12A (20% off) - $11.21
Subtotal: $44.83
Shipping (Standard): $5.00
Tax: $3.49
Total: $53.32

This works out to $5.33 each item which means I did not keep to my under $5. Also I don't include socks, hats and mittens in the $5 range those should be under $2. So I will say that the 2 socks go together and the 2 mittens and hat go together which brings my total to $7.62 each for 7 items. But remember there are 3 pairs of shoes in this order so it makes it a lot better. I try to never pay more than $10 for a pair of shoes. I also got $1.35 cash back on this order. Yes, it is not much but it does add up.

Make sure you go through Ebates to get 3% cash back and also use this code: X3CHEAZZ12A for 20% off your order.

I have some more items for next year and also some mittens for this year (I am thinking they will fit just fine). Not sure if he will be wearing all of these shoes in the coming months or if they will end up being for next winter or not. We will see.

Old Navy and Ebates

First thing make sure you go through Ebates first because you will get 8% cash back!! Remember Ebates is free to use and free to join! You will also get a sign up bonus if you use this link.

Then if you haven't already prior to paying for your items in your shopping cart sign up for Old Navy emails because they will immediately send you a welcome email with a code for $10 off. Again make sure you still go through your Ebates link to get the 8% back. I got $3.36 cash back from going through Ebates with this order.

Old Navy has free shipping with orders of $50 or more. Even if you order is $50 prior to your $10 off code it will still be free!

Here is my order (this is for next winter):

Keep Clear From Ing Direct Bank

I just want to let all of my readers know to stay far, far away from this bank. If you were unfortunate like myself and decided to do the deal they had for black Friday then you already more than likely know that the future holds many, many unpleasant surprises. Like not being able to take any of your money out that you put in your account. Apparently, they think it is just fine and dandy to take your money out of another unrelated account to fund your new account with them but then they refuse to let you use your debit card that they sent you for this new account.

I have had nothing but hassle and hassle from them since I signed up with them. It is to the point where I am actually getting an attorney so I can get my money out of my account. Yes, it is that bad.


So please do yourself a favor and stay as far away from this horrible bank as you can.

Monday, December 20, 2010

And the Winner is................

Linda P.


You have 72 hours to get back in touch with me or else I will have to choose another winner.


I will need your name, email address, mailing address and phone number. You can go ahead and leave a comment on this post with that info if you want (don't worry I will not publish the comment!!).





I plan to have a few different giveaways after the holidays are over so be sure to keep checking back!

Jewelry Always Makes a Nice Gift

Looking for a last minute gift? This looks like a good deal to me.

UPromise

I have been using Upromise since my son was born and it is so very easy to use. Certain store programs you can connect to your Upromise account (exa. cvs extra care card). Also certain items you buy when using your store cards or debit/credit cards you will get $ put in your Upromise account. It isn't a lot of money but it does add up. I figure since I started when my son was a baby that I might actually have not a bad amount when it comes time for him to go to college. It will at least help with the costs of books!

A Giveaway for My Readers!!

The holidays are upon us and one thing that I know a lot of us likes to make as a special treat is Chex Mix Party Mix. Nowadays you can actually buy it premade but I always thought it tastes better when you make it yourself.

One person will receive the following:
1 Box of Rice Chex
A Measuring Cup Set
and a Chex Party Mix tote bag.





I personally love this cereal my favorite happens to be the Wheat Chex but I like all of the flavors that I have tried. This is another cereal that I feel good about feeding my son with since it is not loaded with sugar like some cereals are. Also did you know that they have some gluten free kinds? Including : Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Honey Nut Chex (which sounds very yummy!!), Chocolate Chex and Cinnamon Chex. On their website they actually have a section of gluten free recipes using Chex Mix.


If you happen to shop at Walmart be sure to look for some recipe cards for Chex Mix recipes including: Chex Lemon Buddies,Chex Apple Pie Snack Mix and Tex Chex Party Mix.



**If you are following a gluten free diet you might want to check out this website : Live Gluten Freely. It looks like it is loaded with info and recipes. They have a recipe for Pumpkin Streusel Cheesecake Bars which I am going to have to try. I have a whole bunch of cans of pumpkin that I need to find something to do with!


Here is how to win (1 entry for each of the following - a total of 7 entries!!):

1 - Leave a comment with a recipe for your version of Chex Party Mix or any other recipe involving Chex Mix. Leave your email addy so I know how to get in touch with you.

2- Follow me here on blogger.com (look at the top of the screen in the blue area it says follow click on that). Make sure to comment letting me know that you did with your email addy.

3- Friend me on Facebook. Leave me a comment on here letting me know you did and leave an email addy and your facebook name.

4- Follow me on Twitter. Again leave me a comment letting me know you did with your email addy and twitter name.

5- Join me here on swagbucks through this link. Comment letting me know you did with your email addy.

6- Join me here on CashCrate through this link. Again leave a comment and your email addy letting me know that you joined.


7- Join me here on Inbox Dollars through this link. Again leave a comment and your email addy letting me know that you joined.


Remember you must leave a comment if you do any of the above (2-7) to let me know and you have to leave an email addy so I can get in touch with you if you win. I won't publish any of the comments so you don't have to worry about spammers getting a hold of your email addresses.

I will announce the winner on Monday the 20th of this month. I will post it on my blog, facebook and twitter. I will also email the winner. They will have 48 hours to get in touch with me before I announce another winner.


This giveaway was sponsored by MyBlogSpark and General Mills.

B1G3F Zhu Zhu Pets at CVS This Week

Zhu Zhu Pets (hamster things) are on sale bogo this week and CVS has a coupon that you get 1 free when you buy 2. So that means 4 Zhu Zhu Pets for the price of 1!!





The majority of people are having no issues at all when buying these. But some people are having issues with the sale and coupon.

I went today and bought them and had some issues with using the coupon with the sale but in the end I did get them for the 4 for 1 price.

I bought the following:

(4) Zhu Zhu Pets $9.88 each = $39.52 minus bogo = $19.76
(3) Scott Toilet Paper 12 pks $6.99 each = $20.97
(1) Scott 6pk Paper Towels $4.99

Total before tax and ecbs/coupons = $45.72 or $65.48 if you don't take off the bogo

Ecbs and coupons used:
-$9.88 B2G1F Zhu Zhu Pet coupon
-$5 off $15 CVS coupon
-$6.99 ecb
-$4.99 ecb
-$7.95 ecb
-$7.98 ecb

New total after coupons/ecbs and tax = $5.09






I received a coupon for $15 off Shrek Forever After DVD that I might wait to purchase until next week when the dvd will be on sale and I will only have to pay $1.99 plus tax for it instead of $4.99 plus tax this week. Not sure though. Kind of nervous to wait that long. Would hate to not be able to find one then.

Shrek DVD Rebate - Get $4 rebate when you buy the dvd plus 2 packs of family size Hostess products. Go here to print out the rebate.

This works out to $4.95 each item. I try to keep clothing prices for my son down to less than $5 each (if possible).
The Fleece Slipper Socks look really comfy (I want a pair for me!!). They are slippers not socks at least from the picture that is how they look. The Monster slippers are really cute!

I am almost done buying clothes for my son for the next year and a half. I just need more shoes (he goes through a pair of shoes about every 2 to 3 months!!!!!!!! - and they look like hell after less than a month!!! - he gets all of the rubber worn off on the toe within 2 to 3 weeks) and some jeans, shorts, t-shirts then I should be all set. Some items from last year will still fit and then some of the new stuff will fit the following year too. But I like to have a lot to choose from so I don't have to do laundry too often since I have to go to a laundry mat. Yuck!



Make sure you buy through here so you will get cash back (3%) on your purchase. New members get a $5 to $15 bonus!!! Free to join!!

Remember every penny helps! Everytime you make an online purchase check to see if they give you cash back here first and then go through their link to make your purchase even better! Then you can do what I do and wait until like the end of the year and then you have a nice little bonus check to do whatever you want with.

Reminder About Jingle Bucks at Walgreens

It is being posted on various forums on the web that there will more than likely be issues with the Jingle Bucks printing. Oh joy! Right? Grrr. It is looking like they are going to take rather long to print out (I read 2 minutes not sure if that is each or not). Also apparently if the cashier is not aware of this and rings up the next order the Jingle Bucks may get canceled.

Was really looking to get in and out quickly on Thursday but now I am not sure if that will happen. I am hopping they have all of the registers open and I also hope they are aware of this situation and have signs up so this way the other people in line are aware of what the hold up is.

Of course this so far is just hearsay and I hope that is all it is.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Rebate Info for A Christmas Carol and Santa Paws

There are 2 rebates out there that I am aware of for these movies.

The first one is a rebate for $5 when purchasing either Santa Paws or A Christmas Carol and participating Kernal Seasons. Go here for details.


The next one is for $10 when purchasing either movie plus a Butterball Turkey. Go here for details.

There is a good chance you will be able to do both rebates on one movie. You can use a photo copy of your receipt for the Kernal Seasons rebate.

MIA

Sorry for my absenteeism lately. Let's just say I was/am having massive computer issues (still kind of am).

My IE barely works now. Something was wrong with the outside line. Then I have loads of viruses on my computer. Trend Micro House Call virus scan for some reason is not working for me. :( It will do the whole virus scan but when it is finished scanning it goes blank before giving me the option to fix things. I am now using Avast but I notice it slows my computer down really bad. It did supposedly get rid of lots of viruses but who knows. I spent probably a total of 2 hours on the phone with Bright House this past week so now I have no minutes left on my cell phone. :( Also my router no longer works so that means no Vonage phone for me!

Also my son was extremely sick Friday night and made a lovely mess of my carpet and couch. Ick. Luckily he seems to be fine now. :)

It has been a huge nightmare. I don't currently have it in my budget for a new router. I am sure I can get one for cheap ($40?) but there are other things I need and had planned to buy. A router just has not been on my list.


Lots of good sales this week. Looking forward to picking up loads of things on Thanksgiving day at both CVS and Walgreens. I also plan to hit Target tomorrow and hopefully get A Christmas Carol for $14.99 for the BluRay 4 pack. If it is still $29.99 use the $10 off DMR coupon and then use the $5 off in ad coupon. Still more than I would like to spend for it but I don't think I will get it any cheaper.

Well, let's hope my computer issues get resolved asap!!

$10 off Hallmark Coupon

Ooohhhh this is a good one!!! Last year they had a $5 off one and that was wonderful!
FYI - Again this year they have the $5 off one in magazines.


You can go here to print the $10 off coupon for Hallmark stores. Coupon doesn't expire until 12/24/2010!!

Last year I bought really nice wrapping paper (4 rolls I think- I had 2 coupons). I have no clue what I will buy with the $10 coupon yet. I am very excited!

I went and found out my Hallmark store closed. :(

****Please do not be inconsiderate and print more than 2. I have seen on some other boards people are printing 10+. That is extremely rude and is very much so taking advantage of the situation. This is the reason why coupons get pulled etc.

The weather is rather chilly right now (or it was last week when I made this) so I decided on chili. I love, love making chili in my crockpot (I mean really do you make it any other way?). This is so simple and so yummy.


Ingredients can vary and you can change it up depending on what you have in the house. I make chili so many different ways. Here is todays version!


This time I am using the following:
crumble tofu, corn, baked beans, kidney beans, diced tomatoes, onions, green peppers, seasoning mix. Since I am sick I decided to buy the already cut up onions and green peppers. The less work for me today the better!!





This is so easy to make. Just dice up your veggies, throw everything in the crock pot, mix and cook!!



Looks and smells done to me!



The finished product.



The end result: yummy.

Argh....

I some how totally forgot that yesterday while stopping to pick up a movie (RedBox free code from wags deal) that I noticed that I had coolant leaking. I could tell that there was some sort of leak (thinking a hose) because I could kind of see 3 little spurts of it. I then had an appointment to go to and did not have time to cancel. Then went home and just now remembered. Grrr.


So now with a list of 5 million other things I have to do on Monday (including like 5 loads of laundry - thanks to my son deciding to wet the bed!) I have to some how drop off my vehicle which means I will have to rely on the bus. GASP! I hate the bus. There is no way I can take all that laundry with me on the bus since I have to go to the laundry mat.


Why do things always break down when you have no one to help you? There is no one that will be available to drive me around on Monday since everyone will be at work!!

I will be crossing my fingers that it is just the hose and nothing else. Hoses should be pretty cheap,easy and fast.

Shutterfly Photo Cards for the Holidays

Every since my son was born I now order photo cards every single year. I love being able to send a photo of my son and also have a Christmas card checked off of my list.

I have also bought ones for other holidays and also just everyday occasion cards. I personally prefer the folded cards but I have also bought the non folded flat photo cards.

Shutterfly has so many nice designs to choose from.


As you can see you can choose to put more than one photo on your card like the above collage one.



Or just choose one photo like this one.


Card prices are now starting at .32 cents each (regularly priced starting at .40 cents each). They are currently offering free shipping on orders of $30+ just use the code : SHIP30 at checkout.



You can check out some of the various Christmas designs they have to offer here and here.



They also have photo desk calendars which would make nice gifts. I did this last year for a gift for my father and it was a big hit!



I cannot wait for my son's school to do their holiday photos. They have a photographer come in and take holiday photos of the children. It is normally $20 to $30 for 3 to 4 photos but they allow you to make copies of your photos. They even give you the negatives if they use actual film. This is a huge plus and then throughout the year I can make other photo gifts out of the photos for cheap!! I will be using them for this year's Christmas cards from Shutterfly. I have been able to do this for the last few years. Way cheaper than ordering photo cards from some a professional photo studio that is for sure!






This year I am thinking about going with a simple design like the card above. Of course this depends on what the photos look like this year.




Right now you can get a *free card by using code : CARD4U at checkout. This offer expires November 17th.


*Try one free 5x7 greeting card or 5x7 stationery card.
Offer ends November 17, 2010

I bought a total of 16 bath towels!! You can not understand how bad I need towels. I personally can not tell you the last time I bought towels. I am in my mid 30's and I think I have only bought maybe 10 towels in my entire life (not including ones my mother had bought for me here and there for Xmas). I am so damn cheap when it comes to towels. So I was like screw it I am buying a crap load of them now and I won't have to buy anymore for like 10 years! lol

Target

I found all sorts of good clearance stuff yesterday.

Halloween was 90% off (candy 75% off). Surprisingly, there were loads of costumes left (FYI -$40 costumes = $4!! at 90% off).

Toddler Circo 4 piece bedding sets were $14.98 original price $29.99. This is the lowest I have seen them at my Target so I went ahead and bought 2 different ones. I didn't want to chance waiting for them to be marked down more and then them not being there.


Here are some of the things I bought:

8 plastic Halloween Pumpkins @ .10 cents each (I saw people use these as planters for Halloween- looked cute)

4 Ceramic Halloween Piggy Banks (2 Frankenstein 2 Witches) @.99 cents each

2 Halloween socks Adults (1 - 2 pack and 1 pair) @.50 cents each

3 Hersheys Pillow Cases @ .48 cents each

1 Light Up Pumpkin Keyring .10 cents

1 Cocktail Halloween Napkins .15 cents

1 Spiderman Plush Pail .80 cents

I didn't get pictures of everything because some things went straight to storage.
