Super cheap, awesome pasta, at walmart!!!

Ronzoni Smart Taste Penne Rigate 14.5 oz.Last weekends newspapers (1/23) had an insert with various Ronzoni Smart taste coupons.  There was one for $1.00/2.  They are only $1.08 @ walmart.  That makes them .58cents a piece when you buy 2.  Well fortunately I had four of these coupons in hand, from my free sunday paper coupons picked up on mon LOL.  So I got eight boxes of Ronzoni smart taste pasta for only .58 cents a piece. That is really healthy pasta noodles for way cheaper than generic brand.  WOWZA love it.  So I have a small stash of pasta in the cupboard now.  As a family of four , spaghetti is a weekly staple, just as cereal. So when a deal like this comes along I must get it!!!  I have also found that this week there is a great deal on Ragu at CVS , to go with all that great pasta ; )    Today's paper has Ragu coupons!!

Free Papers!! YAY

So you know how I said that local gas station was going to save me Sunday Papers to have for free on Mon. mornings!?  Well when I got in there someone else was working and didn't get the note to NOT throw them away!!!  Anyhoo they directed me to the grocery store next door.  Saying that they keep their Sunday papers around a lot longer.  So that is exactly what I did.  And they gave me what I wanted of what they had left.  So for the past two weeks I have scored Soo many free coupons I'm ecstatic!!  It's wonderful to have the multiple coupons to take advantage of a great deal x's ten or more!  For instance my kids love Yoplait GoGurts these days.  Well they have had some great coupons in the paper for .75cents off when you buy two.  The best thing of it is that if your store doubles coupons like my Grocery store that is $1.50 off!!!  So on my weekly browse, through my fav stores for what is super cheap with my coupon matchups I found my kids favorite Yogurt on sale 2/$4!!!!!  That made them only $2.50 after my coupon doubling which is then only $1.25 per pack!!  I can usually never get this yogurt that cheap so I stocked up my cart about eight packs!!  Knowing that I could stash half of them in my freezer until ready to be eaten.  SO GOOD!!!!  Another thing I learned, not all great deals are in the ad cause this one was not!    Target had some great matchups this week as well , make sure to browse their coupons every week and print the ones you know there could be a manf. coupon for as well.  When you stack these sometimes stuff comes our FREE, like my light bulbs this week.  I bought four packs for NOTHING!!  yeah, and it was the GE Reveal kind, so not cheap!!  So my experience this week with many of the same coupon, so cool and can't wait to see what deals lie ahead with all of my future Monday outings for FREE papers!!

Great savings at CVS

I scored at cvs today with a great deal.  Again I used many coupons, payed most attention to what earned me extra bucks back and used my first transaction to pay for my second.  Oh and your cashier will be annoyed with you from time to time for using so many coupons and making to transactions, but it's not against the rules so hold your head up high and pay attention that they don't miss any of your coupons!!!

So here is what I bought....

first transaction:  (most lysol and airwick products spend 20.00 receive 10.00 back!)
1 disinfecting lysol spray 1.00 off coupon
2 airwick freshmatic refills BOGO coupon
1 airwick freshmatic ultra 4.00 off coupon
1 bottle of Listerine 2.00 off earns 1.00 extra buck
2 bags of M&M's earned .89 extra buck
I also had a 4.00 off coupon when you make a 20.00 purchase. (to get these sign up at and register your card with their e mail and they will send them to you frequently!)
Paid out 15.00, received 11.89 total extracare bucks!!

second transaction:
1 rimmel eyeshadow on clearance 75% off! 1.00off any rimmel item coupon
1 rimmel foundation on clearance 75% off! 1.00 off any rimmel item coupon
triaminic children's decongestant 2.00 off any triaminic product
3pack kleenex tissues 3.00 ea
Used my xtra bucks to pay and have 1.89 left over to spend on my next trip!!

On another great coupon *note*, Have you gotten tired of buying your sunday paper for coupons? I know I do! so from reading other's blogs such as I found that you can ask your local gas station to save their left over sunday papers for you on mon. morning!!  That is exactly what I did this morning when buying my sunday papers!!  They agreed to save any for me for tomorrow!  SCORE!!!  That's free coupons fellow couponers and I can only say thank you to the "coupon goddess for that idea"
Another coupon extreme method to free coupons is as the does, make a trip to your local recycling center and go through the paper bin to search for you coupons.  While I respect her determination, I think my husband would be mortified for me to try that! LOL  Anywho check those lady's out, they are some of a hand full of blogs that I visit frequently to score great savings ideas.

"armed and dangerous"...with coupons that is! LOL

How to Shop for Free: Shopping Secrets for Smart Women Who Love to Get Something for Nothing
Will be buying this book soon to learn more shopping strategies!!
What can I say, it has been a great few days for couponing!!  Coupon heaven I'd say : ) 

So as I roll up to the Target cashier with about 14 coupons in hand, he says "wow", "you are armed and dangerous"   Oh yeah, that's right did my research and found lots of deals!!! 
two tubs of country crock  94cents  ea
two bags of halls cough drops 14 cents ea
one large tub of quick oatmeal 24 cents
two lunch ables 50 cents ea
jumbo pack of lever 2000 bar soap 3.74
two healthy choice soup bowls 1.04 ea

AND at Giant Eagle I found a great cereal deal!!!
They have large fam. boxes of gen. mill. cereal for 5.00 ea, and you get one free wyb2
which makes them 3/$10
I had one 55cent off coupon for honey nut cheerios
a 55cent coupon for cinn toast crunch
and a 75 cent coupon for mult. grain Cheerios
-all of which double at the checkout
This made my total only 6 dollars and some change!!!  for all that cereal!!
I have a new round of the same coupons today and will go back and do it again.  cant resist stocking up on cereal when we go through it soo quick!!

AND at CVS  another score!!
I had 7 dollars in cvs extra care cash from my last trip for paper towels, laundry detergent etc.  all of which I used coupons for and earned the 7 dollars back!!
So yesterdays trip ended up especially profitable! 
I made two separate transactions ...
I bought one Colgate whitening toothpaste for 2.99 with 1.00 off coupon from last week's paper and I earned one dollar back.  which is like getting it for 99 cents!!
Then I bought two Colgate 360 toothbrushes, 2.99 ea, both earned 1.00 back and I had a dollar off which was like a BOGO

My seven dollars extra cash and two coupons paid for all of that, then my 3.00 bucks in return were put towards my second transaction where I bought
1 gal of milk and 2 packs of toddler flushable wipes.  cvs brand wipes only 1.49 and B1G1 50% off
I only had to put 3.00 of my own cash towards this last transaction.

So in the end I bought
2 packs of flushable toddler wipes
1 gal of milk
2 Colgate 360 toothbrushes
1 Colgate whitening toothpaste

Not to shabby : )

Giant eagle and Target I figured out all on my own brain power but Target was easy because of  !!!
