Free Betty Crocker Potatoes

Until Tuesday, Vons has Betty Crocker Specialty potatoes on sale for $.99 ea. Use the $1/1 coupon here to make them free. Remember you can price match this deal at Walmart.

*When I tried to print this coupon for myself, it said that I had already printed it. Please let me know if you try printing it and what it says for you. Thanks!

Vons also has Annie's Mac and Cheese on sale for $.99 ea. Use the $.50/1 coupon here.

They are also offering Chinet paper plates for $2.50 with the super coupon and $10 min. purchase. Use the $2/1 coupon from the 11/22 SS. You can price match these at Walmart so you don't have to have a min. purchase. Final Price = $.50 for 36 ct. lunch plates!

*While you are at Vons, be on the look out for 2 new coupon packets. I found the first one by the shampoo. It is packed with $26 worth of manufacturer coupons that you can use at any store. Then on the pasta aisle, I found the recipe/coupon packet called Simple, affordable meals filled with Vons store coupons which can be stacked with a manufacturer coupon.

$1/2 Kraft Cheese coupon

Kraft has released another $1/2 cheese coupon. Every time they have released this coupon, I have been able to pair this with a great upcoming sale to score on some inexpensive cheese. Print your coupons now and I will let you know when a sale come around.

Stock up on Diapers

The Krazy Coupon Lady tells you all about how you can get packs of Pampers for $3.33 ea. this week at Target. Go here to find out all the details. Las Vegas did not receive the Pampers Target coupon in our 1/3 RP but she will give you the details on how to order coupons.

Also, Walgreens is having a diaper deal on Huggies this week. Buy $25 receive $5 on Huggies diapers and wipes. The diapers are priced at $8.99 for a jumbo pack.
Deal Scenario:
buy 3 Jumbo packs $8.99 ea. = $26.97
use 3 ($2) coupons - $6.00
pay $20.97 oop
Earn $5 RR
like paying $5.32 per pack

* If you have the Walgreens Children's activity book that was available back in August, you can stack the $1/1 Huggies coupon in the book with the $2 manufacturer coupon. This would make your oop $17.97. Final price would be $4.32 per pack.

$.24 Colgate Max Fresh Toothpaste

At Walgreens this week, Colgate is priced at $2.99 ea. and you receive a $2 RR. Use the $.75/1 coupon from 1/3 SS or $.75/1 here.

Final Price $.24 ea. with coupon and RR.

FREE Soy Joy Bars at CVS

Now through February, CVS is offering their bonus packs with ECB's. These are usually a double pack of an item and on the package it states how many ECB's you will earn when you purchase the product. Each store has different items available.

Most stores received the 6 pack of Soy Joy bars. They are ringing up at $6 ea. and you receive $6 in ECB's (Limit 3). Because we do not have tax on food, you can buy the first package and pay $6 and receive $6 ECB. Then use that $6 ECB to buy the 2nd package and pay nothing and earn $6 ECB. Then do this a third time.

At the end, you will have 3 packs of Soy Joy bars and $6 in ECB's.

Great Deal!

This week, Walgreens has 18 oz. cans of Quaker quick 1 minute oats on sale for $1.50 with in ad coupon. Go here to print a coupon for $1/1. This is a fantastic price.

Final Price $.50 ea.

Target marked down all their Christmas Decor, candy etc. to 90% off today. I shopped at the store on Skypointe in the NW but I am assuming that most stores are all at 90% off. This is a great time to buy wrapping paper that can be used for birthdays, shirt boxes, tissue paper etc.

Also, if you can get your hands on some of the little candy canes, you can make these cute heart suckers for Valentine's Day.

Have fun shopping! I know I did.
