Best Deals and Bargains I Found this Week

Yesterday I went out for a bit to get groceries and some of the deals to stock up for the week. Thanks to my friend Kelly who sent up a BAG full of coupons before I left allowing me to get some of the good deals I got. Here are some of the highlights for anyone who is interested or might want to stock up this week:


Zyrtec: $19 for 30 qty, $4 coupon in this week's paper. CVS had a deal where if you bought $20 worth of products advertised on the page with Zyrtec, you got $10 in ECB. I found Benadryl that had TWO tubes (bonus pack) and I had a $1 coupon. I got Zyrtec and two tubes of Benadryl for $20.39 and then also got $10 ECB, making the final cost for both $10.39. I'm going to start Josh on it intermittently to see if it helps with his ears/runny nose.

All detergent: BOGOF at $7.49 for two. I also had two $1.00 off coupons. I was sort of surprised since it was a BOGOF that they let me use both coupons, but they did so each bottle was only $2.75!! I printed the coupons off at by signing up to get deals there.

Fructis products were $2.99 with $2.00 in ECB, making them $.99. I have two CVS cards (one for me and one for hubs) so I got two shampoos.

Bounty, 8 pack paper towels on sale for $6.99 -- nothing special there, just needed some.


I had (2) $1 coupons for Pediasure bars for Ellie and they were on clearance for $1.69 so I got two boxes for $1.40 total. Not bad.

Northern bath tissue - 12 double rolls for $5.99 (in store coupon) and I had $1 off coupon, making 12 rolls, $4.99.

Oust air freshener - 2/$6, had (2) $2 coupons, so I got two cans for $2 total.

Weight Watchers bagged candy - 2/$3. I had multiple BOGOF coupons so I picked up 4 bags for $1.50.


Electrasol tablets, 12 count, $3.00, had three $2.50 coupons, so I got three boxes for $1.50.


Best deals of the day were here for me. The penny item (there is a penny item coupon in the Sunday paper), was a six pack of bottled water. Got that, of course.

Skippy Peanut Butter is BOGOF at $2.49. I had a $.40 off coupon (which they doubled), making each jar $.85.

Shout on sale, BOGOF at $2.89. I got three bottles with $.55 coupons, making my final cost per bottle $.90 a bottle. NOW, Josh plays baseball with WHITE pants -- does anyone think that I'll have any trouble using those up??? Nope.

Scrubbing Bubbles cleaner, BOGOF at $2.89. I got four cans and had (4) $.75 coupons, making each bottle cost $.70.

I also picked up Hunt's ketchup at BOGOF for $1.49, making each bottle $.75. I didn't have any coupons, but Joshua DRINKS the stuff, so I might go back and get more before the week is up just so I don't have to buy it regular price. This is actually cheaper than the Great Value brand we normally get.

Speaking of Great Value and Wal-mart. I stopped there to get one item I had coupons for, and, of course, they didn't have it (surprise), but as I walked through the aisles to get there, I noticed that everything I got elsewhere was less expensive even before the coupon somewhere else!!! What happened to "We sell for less???"


Mainly pet food here.

KITTEN CHOW: $2.19 off coupon. Got a bag that was $3.89 and paid $1.70 for it. No, we do not have a kitten. However, it was a small bag and I poured it in with the other cat food as "filler". It was too inexpensive not to.

PEDIGREE breath treats (Sunshine's breath will KNOCK YOU DOWN). The treats were on clearance for $2.39 and I had a $1.00 coupon. I got two. I'll let you know if it helps!! :-)

CHEF MICHAELS: Remember that deal I told you about last week? Well, several people passed along their coupons to me for this and I went back and got two for free and eight more at BOGOF. Ten cans were $3.00. Makes great topping for the dogs on their dry food.

J&J Baby Wash: On sale for $2.99. I had (1) $1 coupon and (1) $1.50 coupon. Needed to stock back up as we are finally (six months later) starting to run out of baby wash. Honestly, though, there might be some more in the back of her closet, I just haven't looked.

I suspect I am now stocked enough to only have to buy produce, meat and milk for the next month or two. Unless there are incredible deals or triple coupons, I'm done for a little while. I have plenty of deodorant, shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste, household cleaners, detergent, etc.

You amaze me! I signed up on the BOGOFetcher site and they didn't even recognize my town or any other town anywhere near me...about an hour and a half away! I'm still working on it, though!!!
