2 Weeks

This was one of the movies that I bought at Blockbuster for 99 cents that I had no clue what it was about nor who was in it. It turned out to be a very good buy.

It was about a women dying from ovarian cancer and her four children who come home for those last 2 weeks. It was a very good movie with a good cast (Sally Field, Ben Chaplin etc.).

Printable Coupons



Went to CVS and decided to take advantage of the great Revlon Nail Polish sale.

Unfortunately, the $2 off Revlon coupons do not work on the nail polish (screen prompts no item found). Some stores probably will push it through but don't be alarmed if they don't. I am sure all of the CVS's are now scared about pushing coupons through and just wary of coupons now.

Why? Because of all the (insert plenty of 4 letter words) people who thought absolutely nothing of printing as many Physician's Formula coupons that they possibly could. Which FYI - just because a coupon is a pdf does not mean you can print as many as you want. The coupon was sadly being naive thinking people would not take advantage of them and print 10's, 20's, 100's of these coupons. Treat PDF coupons just like you would the coupons you print off of coupons.com (which means 2). Anyways, it seems people were printing many,many of these coupons to use at Target and CVS because there were giftcard deals and ecbs deals with this product. Guess what? These stores are not going to be reimbursed for all of these thousands and thousands of coupons. That means us honest coupon users are going to have even MORE problems using coupons thanks to these dishonest people.

I have a feeling some stores may even say no more printables and well, you can't blame them.

Anyways here is what I bought:

4 Revlon Nail Polishes $4.99 each = $

1 Purex $1.98

1 Qtips $1.99

Total before taxes and coupons = $23.93

Coupons/ECBs I used:

$1 off Purex

.30 cents off Qtips

$7.99 ecb

$5.00 ecb

$3.00 ecb

$1 ecb

$3 ecb

(would not have used the last 2 ecbs if the coupons would have worked for the Revlon)

New total after taxes and coupons/ecbs= $4.04 and I received $16 in ecbs back for the nail polish.

Good Deal on Morningstar!!!

Morningstar Farms products are on sale for $2.99 right now at Target. This is the cheapest I have seen them in forever! But to make the deal even better go here and you can print $1 off coupons for them! Remember you are allowed to print 2 from each computer (and NO you cannot photocopy them).

So you can pay $1.99 for them!

Let The Right One In

This is the original Swedish version (with subtitles) of Let Me In. I also enjoyed it very much so. I am currently reading the book which goes more in depth then both of the movies.

End of Days?

I wake up this morning and what song do I have stuck in my head? REM's "It's the End of The World as We Know It". lol

I remember when a few months back I found out about this so called end of days date (today): I was at Busch Gardens and I was in the stall. There was a sticker plaster with today's date claiming the end of the world. I get out of the stall and inform my sister hey, the world is going to end on May 21st. My sister exclaims good, now I won't have to turn 40 (her birthday is later this week). lol

Well, I am not one to believe this nonsense but just in case let's hope that today is indeed not doomsday after all. Just in case maybe tell all your love ones that you love them?

So Sad

So today I bought gas. I paid $3.68 a gallon and I thought "wow, cheap". Just compared to what I have been paying the last month or so this is cheap. Which is completely insane.

Most places around me are anywhere from $3.75 to $3.87. But this place by my house always seems to be 5 to 10 cents cheaper. They are just some little no name place.

Remember the days when 5 bucks gave you 5 gallons of gas? In the words of Archie and Edith "those were the days...".

Here is what I bought:

3 Oust @ .97 cents each = $2.91 (prefer lysol but for this price it will do)

2 Purell Hand Sanitizers @ .19 cents each = .38 cents

3 CVS brand mini pedicure sets @ .39 cents each = $1.17

2 Hydrocut Cleanse @ $1.79 each = $3.58

1 Pedicure set .99 cents each

1 6pk ladies socks $1.77

2 Children's Oscillococcinum 6ct for flu @.79 cents each = $1.58

1 Billfold/wallet .99 cents

2 mini makeup bags @ .29 cents each = .58 cents

1 wallet .59 cents

3 small wristlet purses @ .59 cents each = $1.77

Total before ecbs and taxes = $16.31 which is in itself cheap for all of those items.

ECBS I used:





New total after ecbs and taxes = $2.63!!! That is for 21 items (that is a little more than 12 cents each item but less than 13 cents each). A lot of these items will go for next years gift bags for Xmas and birthday gifts.

Realistic Extreme Couponing -Target - 21 Items for Less than $5

I bought the following at Target:

4 Nivea Body Wash @ $2.43 each = $9.72

4 Carefree ActiFresh Pantyliners @.97 each = $3.88

2 Kid's socks from dollar bin = $2.00

3 Kandoo at $1.49 each = $4.47

2 Carefree original pantyliners @.99 cents = $1.98

Suave Dry Shampoo $2.74

2 Revlon Nail Files @ $1.27 each = $2.54

Mini Stapler $1.89

2 Revlon tweezers @ $2.24 each = $4.48

Total before coupons and taxes = $33.70

Coupons I used :

(3) $2 off Revlon Beauty tools Target coupon
(4) $3 off Nivea Body wash
(3) $1 off Kandoo
(4) .96 cents off Carefree Actifresh Target coupon
(2) $1 off Carefree
$2.74 off Suave free coupon
.05 cents off for bringing my own bag

New total after coupons and taxes: $4.88 which I paid with a Target giftcard.

I also received a ton of coupons for Revlon beauty tools (like $5 off 2, $1 off 1 etc.)

There is overage on the Nivea body wash coupons as long as you have other items in your cart then the whole $3 will come off. The Revlon Target coupons only deduct the whole $2 if the price is $2 or more. So if they are $1.27 then it only deducts $1.27.
According to my receipt it looks like he only charged me for 1 tweezer and not 2.

Photos later if my batteries ever charge.

Photos later.

Too Hot Already

It's another scorcher in my home today. 90 degrees again. I don't know how we can live like this too much longer. It is only May so I fear what August will be like.

We have limited outlets (old home barely has any for some reason) and pretty much every single room is on the same circuit so that means you can't have too much plugged in at the same time or else you blow a circuit.

What I would do for a pool........

Julie & Julia

I was pleasantly surprised with this movie. I enjoyed it very much so. It is a movie based on the book "The Julie & Julia Project" by Julie Powell. It is about Julie Powell a married female living in New York who decides she needs to do something and decides on making every single recipe in Julia Child's book "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". She decides to blog about it. Meanwhile the movie also is somewhat based on Julia Child and the time she was living in France with her husband. This is when she began taking an interest in cooking and attended school there. More details can be found here.

Good Deal on Gas Cards

Publix currently has a promotion (that ends on 05/11) where if you buy $25 worth or groceries you can get $10 off a gas card (the $50 ones) using the coupon in the ad. I admit I buy my gas at a no name place but for this type of savings I will go elsewhere. I ended up going 2 times this week and getting $25 worth of groceries (instead of 1 trip of $50) so I could buy 2 of these cards. I did spend way more this week then planned but I should hopefully have close to 2.5 weeks of gas with the 2 cards.

So I got a $100 worth of gas for $80. So sad that like 12 years ago it was only a dollar a gallon if that.

Gift Card Rescue

Here is a way to buy gift cards for cheaper than their face value. You can also sell any gift cards that you do not want!

What I Would Do for Central Air..............

It is hard to believe that my house is already 90 degrees inside!!!! I am not even exaggerating that is what both thermometers read. This is a very old house with no central heat and air. Translates to ridiculously cold in the winter and beyond hot in the summer. But already 90 degrees and it is only May!!!

$1 off Homestyle Kraft Mac and Cheese Coupon

If you follow Kraft Mac and Cheese on Twitter you can print a coupon for a $1 off (possibly print 2 using your browsers back button). You actually don't need to even have a Twitter account just go check out their page and you will see there tweet about it and you can click on the link (not sure if I am allowed to post the link here or not).


This was a very good movie. I had actually never heard of it but my sister recommended it.

Basically, about some underwater cave divers who get trapped. Somewhat based on a true story.

More details about the movie here.
