$1.00 off any flavor Mott's for Tots
This new coupon just popped up for $1.00 off any flavor Mott’s for Tots! Take that coupon on over to your ShopRite (if they are doubling $1 coupons) and pay just $0.50 for the Tots variety! Even if you aren’t a ShopRite shopper, stores will occasionally have Mott’s on sale for $1.99, so still a great deal after coupon.

Savvy Student Shopper’s Trip to ShopRite 5/27

0527141232a

I’m just loving ShopRite recently! We’ve been shopping there for years because of their great coupon deals, but their $1 doubles just makes it that much better! A few of my coupons wouldn’t scan or double, so they wouldn’t accept them so I had a few items that needed to be put back/returned. In the end, I paid $1.42, $0.66 of that was tax! I also always bring reusable bags because you get a $0.05 credit per bag!

Bought:

  • (4) Pure Leaf Iced Tea $1.99 (Used (4) $1/1 coupons from the 5/4 RP = FREE)
  • (3) Lucky Charms $1.99 (Used (3) $1/1 printable coupons (NLA) = FREE)
  • (1) Trix $1.99 (Used $0.60/1 printable coupon + $0.50 SR ecoupon = $0.29!)
  • (2) Tide $2.99 (Used (2) $1.00 off ONE Tide Detergent = FREE)
  • (1) Suave Lotion $2.99 (Used $1.50/1 coupon from the 5/18 RP + $1.50/1 SR ecoupon = FREE!)
  • (1) Suave Professionals $1.99 (Used $1/1 coupon from the 5/18 RP+ $0.50/1 SR ecoupon = $0.50 MM!)
  • (1) Tabasco Sauce $0.99 (Used $0.55 off any size, any flavor from TABASCO brand = FREE!)
  • (1) Texas Toast $0.99 (Used $0.40/1 coupon from the 4/6 SS = $0.19!)

Here's the before picture! We made 3 new raised beds in the garden and loaded them up with new dirt (I bought 2 yards of Leaf-Gro and mixed that with stuff from the chicken coop and vermiculite.)

Here are some updated pictures from my 2014 garden! I added a few new raised beds and bought some dirt so we’re off to a good start! The bugs have already started to eat my green beans, but everything else looks good!

So far I have planted:

  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Apple Tree
  • Peach Tree
  • Strawberries (all of mine from previous years died so I started new for 2014)
  • Blueberries (Aren’t doing well!)
  • Gourds
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Brussel Sprouts (new for 2014!)
  • Cabbage (new for 2014!)
  • Cauliflower
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Radish
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Carrots (which as usual don’t seem to be doing anything)
  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • Peas
  • Green Beans
  • Potatoes
  • Herbs

So that’s where all my time at home has been going over the last few weeks! I’ll be posting updates throughout the season, so tune back in.

Savvy Student Shopper’s Trips to Safeway and CVS 3/4

0504141123

No one told me in high school how much free time I really had and then when I got to college I was quite shocked at the increased workload. Fast forward 3.5 years later, I’m working at least 50-55 hours every week, plus trying to maintain the household, coupon, garden, raise chickens, thrift shop, and attempt to get back into some of my favorite hobbies. It’s exhausting! Couponing is still a priority of mine so I still try to grab deals weekly! I seriously do not know how people afford not to coupon nowadays. My shopping list is dictated by deals! How do other people do it?! As long as I have a shopping schedule, I’m much more likely to stick to it. By going to Safeway every Sunday morning, for example, I set up a nice little routine. Pictured above was last Sunday’s Safeway trip. Some highlights were the $0.49 Fresh Express kits, FREE Fiber One fruit snacks, $0.49 Mott’s, and $0.09 Angel Soft. I think my total was around $19 (thanks to meat, bread, Cheezits and Brownie Brittle).

I went to CVS twice already this week to finish out that great Neutrogena deal! I was fortunate enough to get 6 soaps (without evening clearing the shelf) but when I went to finish the deal (I didn’t realize I only needed to buy one more product to get $10 back until I got home), two stores were sold out of them. I grabbed the face wash instead and still ended up with a money maker and 2 free tote bags. The first picture shows my first trip where I paid about $2. I used up MQs and CVSQs on clearance Easter candy! I went the following day (picture #2) and paid just $0.20 and got a $10 ECB back. Not bad!
