This week's grocerys

I'm going to start posting the photo from grocery shopping each week (if you all like it, if not then I won't). If you aren't using coupons yet, maybe this will be a good motivator.
Here is what I got from Farm Fresh (FF) today. Keep in mind that FF doubles coupons up to $1 on Wednesday.
Missing from photo: 1 12 pack of soda, 2 packs of corn tortilla

Free: Milk, 2 Starbucks Frapuccino, 2 Dan-Active, 2 Activia, 1 Digiorno 200 calorie pizza, 2 carton of Tropicana Orange Juice, 2 Steamfresh veggies.

$1 or less: 2 Tropicana OJ's, 3 boxes of cereal, 2 bags of chips, 10 cans of veggies, 2 biscuit mixes, 1 pizza crust mix, Black pepper,

Other: Pork Chops, 12 pack of soda, corn tortillas, bread, ground beef, bananas, salad, taters, french fries, veggie entrees (easy meal when it's just me to cook for, used a coupon), sub rolls, Pull Ups (used a coupon). These are things that we needed or I didn't have a coupon for which is why they were more than a dollar.

Some of the good deals:

  • The cereal was a really good deal. $1.98 a box and when you buy 3 you receive a coupon for a free gallon of milk. Used a $0.70/1 and a $1/3 Double those and it is 3.40 off. $5.94 for 3 boxes- $3.40= $2.54 or $0.85 a box+ a free gallon of milk.
  • The Tropicana Trop 50 on sale for 2/$6: I had 2 coupons for $1/1 and I had 2 coupons for BOGO free. The first 2 rang up at $1 each ($2 total) and I received 2 more free with my BOGO coupon. 4 cartons of OJ for $2 or $0.50 a piece.
My total before the coupons was $113.40 with tax.
After coupons I paid $63.40 and I have a coupon for a free gallon of milk still.
I saved $49.74 which is a savings of 45%.

I'd like to know how you did. Where did you shop? Did you get any good deals? I love hearing from my readers!
Also, would you like me to post this every week or not? Kinda feels like bragging, but seeing these trips when I first started really helped me get into it and save. I'm leaving it up to you!
Here's what my kids looked like while I was setting up the food for the photos. LOL:

Possibly FREE My Little Pony TODAY ONLY!

Toys R Us is having a Buy One Get One Free My Little Pony sale.
If you take this BOGO coupon you may be able to get 2 My Little Pony's for free! This coupon also came in the paper a few weeks back.
Not all Toys R Us stores take IP coupons. You may want to call ahead.
I won't be able to test this out for you since I don't have girls, but let me know if it works!

Ball Park Angus Hot Dog coupon

Here is a coupon for $0.75 off 1 pack of Ball Park Angus Beef hot dogs. We will probably start seeing some good sales on this as grilling season is here!

Free Pantene Sample!

Vocalpoint has released a new freebie! Submit for your free sample of Pantene.

Not a member of Vocalpoint?

You should be! They send out great full size freebies all the time and send out great high dollar coupons!

(At the moment, it seems as if their server is a bit overloaded, keep trying)

$1/2 David's Sunflower Seeds

Here is a coupon for $1 off 2 bags of David's Sunflower seeds. I see these for about a dollar all the time. It's a great coupon for any store that doubles dollars like Farm Fresh. On Wednesday, at Farm Fresh, you can get 2 bags for free!

Thanks Coupon Clippin' Daddy

Bop-It and Monopoly for $1!

I heard about a deal at Target. But before posting it, I wanted to see if it worked without the beeps. I hate getting beeped!
Target has Bop-It and Connect 4 for $14 plus you get a Monopoly card game for free with the purchase of $10 worth of Hasbro games.
I picked up the Bop-It and the card game and headed to check out.
I used a $5 off Bop-it coupon,
a $5 off Monopoly Game coupon
and a $3 off Hasbro game Target coupon.
My total came to... $1.55 including tax!
Whoo Hoo! I like the game Bop-It! Although we already have the Monopoly game, it will make a good gift for a birthday or for a stocking stuffer at some point.
Here is the coupon for Connect 4. If you get that instead of Bop-it, your total will be a little over $2.

You've Been Sentenced review and giveaway!

My family and I were recently given the opportunity to play the game "You've been Sentenced", Twisted Fish, and The Wheel of Chore-ture by McNeill Brighter Minds!
We decided to play "You've been Sentenced" first. We received the game, plus 5 add on packs. At first sight, it looks odd. All the cards are pentagon shaped! When you are playing "You've been Sentenced", you try to make the best possible sentence out of the 10 cards in your hand. They come out being weird, silly, and a little a lot off the wall. The other players at the table become "the jury" and decide if your sentence is grammatically correct and make sense. If they think your sentence is just to out there you get nothing!
My husband and I played first even though it clearly states 3-8 players. It was fun trying to make the sentences, especially when you get a bad hand. But really you do need at least 3 people. We spent a lot time trying to argue justify our sentences. When in doubt (and you don't have a third player) call in the 2 year old! (And bribe him to say yes.)
Then we played with a few friends of ours. (I thought our sentences were weird, theirs were so strange I think they might not be right in the head.) But anyways, it is WAY more fun with a group of people!
The deck comes with 540 cards and they also sell add-on packs to go with the game. They are:
  • Sports Highlights
  • Sci-Fi/Fantasy
  • Gourmet Cuisine
  • Pop Culture
  • Reader's Digest Word Power Challenge
The game has also won some great awards! A few of them are:
  • Best Toy Award
  • Dr. Toy Best Products Winner 2007
  • Creative Child Magazine Game of the Year Award
Recently the makers signed a deal to turn the popular game into a televised game show! That is so awesome for them! I look forward to watching it!

We also received Twisted Fish! This game was a lot of fun too! Think Go Fish, but twisted. This game has 13 different kids of weird fish in 5 different colors, such as the Card Shark and the Flying Fish. The game also has Zinger Wild cards which really made the game entertaining. This game can also be modified for whatever skill level your child should playing. Mr. Destructo really liked the colors and the fish, but mostly he liked to help show Daddy my hand. Again, the more players you have the more fun it is!

Finally, the last thing in our package was The Wheel of Chore-ture! It is magnetic and holds nicely to the fridge. Mr. Destructo likes to spin the arrow. While my 2 boys are to young for chores, I can't wait to use it! Pretty simple idea, spin the arrow and receive your punishment, I mean chore. Is it wrong to use The Wheel of Chore-ture for punishment? I have high hopes for this in the future!

Buy It!
You can purchase all of the things from McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds on their website.
  • You've been Sentanced- $24.99
  • Add-on Decks- $7.95 each
  • Twisted Fish- $10.00

CPR Carpet Cleaner review and giveaway! EVERYONE'S A WINNER!

Harris Teeter Day 2

The boys and I went to Harris Teeter again today. The stock was low and for the second day I left my list at home again! I tried to go off of memory and it wasn't working well. Here is what I got:
  • 1 Mahatma Yellow Rice
  • 2 Cans Dole Pineapple
  • 2 Lysol Toilet Cleaner (the last 2)
  • 6 boxes of Jell-O
  • 3 Mentos Gum Tubes
Total before tax $0.35
Total after tax $0.50
Coupons used $17.46

Tomorrow I will go again, and hopefully remember my list. If I can find it. I saw the boys using it as a train depot earlier this afternoon.

Readeo Review and discount!

I was recently contacted by Readeo to do a review of their website. Readeo provides an opportunity to allow kiddos and their families to read books together online via webcam! When we were given this opportunity I was so excited!
I am friends with many moms online that I met through a message board and our kids were all born in the same month. I love that Mr. Destructo can now read books with his fellow 2 year old friends! We read a couple of books with a few of his friends and he had a blast! Sometimes I think he was a bit distracted by seeing the other little boy on the screen but at the same time he still was looking at the book and telling his friend about it. It was really cute to watch them together! One of the moms we read with said, "They can't tear or chew on them!" So very true!
(this is not us, but a shot from their website)
This is also a great way for kids to interact with distant grandparents. Being that my husband's family is half way across the country, the boys don't get to see Grandma very often. Now she can read a bedtime story with them!
This would also be super awesome if a parent was deployed overseas or on business!
They have books for all age levels. My son is 2 and I worried at first that there wouldn't be a good selection. I was wrong. He has 14 books in this online library. His favorite one is "Rhyming Dust Bunnies"!
We did have a minor technical difficulty connecting the first time with a friend, but their online chat support team member was great and he had us on track very quickly! Thumbs up to that guy! (I wish I remembered his name so I could give him a shout out!)
How much does it cost?
You can sign up as a guest and it's FREE or you can become a member for $9.95 a month of $99.95 for a year. The biggest difference is that members can read any book with anyone and guest can only read the book of the month unless they are reading with a member. 
Right now during the month of March they are offering a discount! They are offering a 50% off discount until March 31st! For 1 year of member benefits it only cost $49.95. It averages out to be about $4.16 a month. (I spent more than that on coffee and donuts the other day.) I really did enjoy doing this with my boys and their friends and family! Thank you to the folks at Readeo for providing such a great opportunity.

I would love to know if you sign up! Let me know if you and your little one would be interested in book chatting with us!

Disclaimer: Readeo provided my family a free 3 month membership to try out their website. All opinions are mine. No money was exchanged.

$1 off Smuckers Uncrustables
