JC Penney's Coupon $10 off $25

JC Penney's is offering a Coupon this weekend for $10 off $25! That would make for some pretty cheap clothes especially when paired with clearance! Expires June 2nd.

Old Navy $3.00 Graphic Tees

I got a flyer tonight while checking out at Old Navy that this Saturday May 30th, they will be having $3.00 graphic tees (Ladies and Men only). There is a limit of 5 per customer so you might want to bring a husband or friend with you to help you stock up! You might want to get there bright and early if it is anything like last Saturday's flip flop deal was...C-R-A-Z-Y!
Our cashier was also handing out coloring pages for the girls to design their own flip flops for a contest. On the bottom of each page was a coupon to tear off for 20% off one women's item and one kid's items. (not to be used on clearance items).
Old Navy is also doing their extra clearance savings of 50% off the clearance price. Ours was pretty picked over in the girl's section but I was able to get 4 tee shirts , 2 tank tops, and a dress for Maddelyn, and a pair of khakis and sandals for the baby for just over $30.00.

NEw Tulle's Day Sale!! 6/2/09

Tulle is once again haiving a one day only Tulle's Day Treasure Hunt Sale! Id you saw my post on the sale I got last month you'll know how WONDERFUL this really is! I ended up getting $707.00 worth of clothes for $50.88, close to 92% off!!! Their sale will include knit tops for $4.99, Tops for $5.99, Sweater's for $6.99, and knit pants, sweaters, and jackets for $8.00! It's a perfect way to stock up for this Fall with some unbeatable prices! I'm not sure what time it will start, but last time it started at 12:00 pst I believe. Things got fast so it is definetly worth staying up or getting up early for, especially if you are wanting popular sizes.

If this is your first time ordering with Tulle, not that the sizes are more of a juniors sizing so it does run a bit smaller. I ordered one size up form my normal size and things fit fine. Also if you do end up with something that does not fit right, Tulle allows you to print out a return shipping label to ship it back to them for free.

Grocery Shopping Strategies: 10 Simple Rules

I found this wonderful cheat sheet on grocery shopping rules from Keeping the Kingdom First. It's short and sweet, but defineity worth trying to put at least a few of these into practice!

1: Do not shop while hungry. This is good common sense.

2: Shop with a list prepared at home (not in the car on the back of an old receipt) and stick to it!

3: Know your target price points. This will vary by region and season. For example, the price to beat on a gallon of milk in my area is currently $2.00, same for a loaf of bread.

4:Use Coupons: combine a coupon with a sale to save the most.

5:Beware of product placement strategies on shelves and endcaps. The best deals are usually high or low on shelves, and not on the endcaps.

6:Eliminate brand loyalty. Be willing to try a variety of brands depending on what is the best value.

7:Find a great deal? Stock up! Since sales only come around every 8-12 weeks, buy enough to last you through the next sale.

8:Get in, get out. Studies have shown the more time you spend inside a store, the more money you will spend. Don't dilly dally!

9:Avoid impulse buys (see number 2). Especially at the checkout stand, where prices are inflated.

10:If possible, leave the kids at home. Enough said.

FREE Pack of Oscar Mayer Beef Franks

Oscar Mayer is offering a coupon for a FREE package of thier oscar Mayer Beef Franks. Hurry though because the offer is limited and please allow 4-6 weks for delivery. Perfect timing for all those Summer cook-outs!

Back from the Garage Sale!!

So sorry for the lack of posts this past week! We've been super busy getting ready for and then running our annual garage sale. I haven't really done much coupon/frugal blogging at all this week. Believe it or not I only picked up 1 pack of the huggies pull-ups at CVS at $8.99 (-$3.00 coupon), for $5.99 and that is just because we were almost out and couldn't wait on those. I will however be back tomorrow night with my list of next weeks deals as well as a coupon preview. So, now that we are almost past garage sale week I will be returning to the normal daily postings.

So what better way to celebrate your MOMMY Day as we say in our house than with some special freebies for Y-O-U the mom??? Head on over to Thrifty Mama for a great list of lots and lots of free things to help you celebrate Mother's Day for FREE! Now don't tell hubby though because he might think this list is his get-out-of-jail-free card and slack off on having the kids get you something for mother's day because of all the pampering you'll get off this list!

FREE Chocolate Bar!!!

Mars is giving away a coupon for a FREE chocolate bar to the first 250,000 people to register for one each Friday now through September. I believe you are allowed up to 4 candy bars per house hold and only one per email address per Friday. It begins at 9:00am each Friday. I was suprised that at 2:00pm I was still able to snag one! Definitely worth checking out for any chocolate fans out there, or for people like give to the sweet hubby!

Old Navy Resetting Coupons Tonight!

Sorry for the lack of posts the past couple of days we've been busy getting ready for our annual garage sale. Let's just say that with the amount of children's items priced and stacked in my living room you could open your own second hand children's shop...literally! Another frugal mommy your children's big name used clothes. I'll someday soon do a post on the how too's, but you can dress your kids in big brands for free or almost free when you re-sell them! So on to coupon news......

Old Navy will be resetting their coupons tonight! You need to just keep checking Old Navy Weekly to see if the page has loaded yet. No one knows what time, but there are sure to be some high value coupons such as $60 off $100! Remember one coupon per person. You can swap out your saved coupon to try and find another but once you click print that is it for the week with that email address. Happy Hunting!

FREE 2 Piece Grilled Chicken meal from KFC!

So Oprah has shared with everyone that KFC is offering a coupon for a FREE 2 piece grilled chicken dinner including 2 pieces of chicken, 2 individual sides and a biscuit! Supposedly this is a one-day-print-off-only so be sure to print it out today. It is valid until 5.19, but excludes Mother's Day. Also remember that you can click the back button on your browser until the computer/printer image appears again to be able to print that second coupon! It's a bricks coupon, so only 2 allowed per computer.


Tulle is having their bi-annual sale this week (the 5th -7th I believe). A large majority of this sale is $7.00 and under with tons marked $3.99, including that cute dress in the picture above! I was able to snatch up 12 dresses/shirts with a MRSP of $707.00 for $50.88, close to 92% off!!! Shipping on all that was only $12.00! Act fast though becasue obviously with things being so cheap the sizes are flying off the selves! Oh...and the word is that things run small so order a size up. Eveything on there looks so cute and it's a great way to build up you Summer OR Winter wardrobe!

Heads Up! 3 Coupon Inserts 5/3

Just letting everyone know that there will be 3 coupon inserts this weekend, 1 Smart Source, 1 Red Plum, and 1 Proctor and Gamble. Remember that if your area does not offer Red Plum of you just want a home delivery, you can check out this post. Here is a complete list of what will be available in each insert. This might be a good week to pick up an extra copy or two of your Sunday paper??? Another hint is that some Dollar Trees (unfortunately not mine) carry the Sunday paper for $1.00! That helps when building your stockpile and needing more coupons! Be sure to call ahead though to save a waisted trip in case they don't offer them.

Here are a few of my favorites...

Febreze Noticeables Starter Kit $4 expires 5/31/09
Covergirl Product $1 expires 5/31/09

Walmart Finds 5/1

I just got back form my bi-monthly Walmart and had a few updates to share. Of course price varies by location so it's frustrating that some of the deals other people have found don't work in my local walmart...or at least for a higher price than other bloggers have found the items for.

I did fine one better deal though:

Angel Soft 4 pack Toiler Paper $0.84 roll back (was $1.00)
-$0.50/1 coupon from 4/26 Smart Source Insert
Final: $0.34 for 4 rolls! That is a GREAT deal!

Also Dole Salad Mix was $0.98 roll back (was $1.68)
Wish I had a coupon but still cheap!
