Jewel: $2 off Lloyd's Babyback Ribs

Go here to print a coupon for $2 off Lloyds Babyback Ribs at Jewel! Coupon is good through 7/21!

Dominicks Trip 7/16/10 (The one where I make a lot of mistakes and pay too much money...)

So I shimmied on over to Dominick's this morning all excited and made mistakes at every turn that I came home with all this great stuff but totally bummed because it didn't go the way I planned. I'm still sharing though because its good to know that people DO make mistakes and there probably is a good deal in here somewhere ;)!

I paid $19.30 for everything above (did I really spend almost $20 at Dominicks!!) I guess that really isn't that much, but in my head I thought I was only spending about $10-$12...and then at the register when my total was $40 before coupons I was kicking myself because I had a $10/$50 in my purse which is essentially throwing away 10 more boxes of granola bars!! (Had I bought 10 more boxes of granola bars for $12: $16 for 8 plus 2 free boxes minus $4 in coupons I could have used that $10/$50 and I would have walked out with 10 more boxes for $2!! So much for quick thinking!) Plus I was expecting back at $2.50 cat for the fruit snacks but I guess I missed the dates on that one (yup..the cat ended 7/11!)

Now that I've rambled's the deals:
  • Buy 4 Save $4 Deal plus get a FREE box of NV Granola Bars: I stacked this deal 3 high so I bought sets of: 4 boxes of fruit snacks ($1.19 each after discount), 4 NV Granola Bars ($1.99 each after discount), and 1 set of NV Granola Bar, NV Nut Cluster, Golden Graham and Trix Swirl (all $1.99 after discount except Trix which was $1.79). I got 3 FREE NV granola bars for the 3 sets of 4. I used lots of e-coupons from cellfire and shortcuts plus paper coupons (too many to list). My final price for all 15 items was $2.98!!
  • 2 lbs of Waterfront Shrimp - 3 day sale $7.98, Used $2/1 coupon from the Dominicks Simple Summer Seafood coupon booklet. Final Price $5.98
  • Bag of Ice (not pictured) - $1.78, Used $1/1 expired Ice WT, Final Price .78.
  • Lucerne Shredded Cheese - $2.49, Used $1.50/1 coupon from Dominicks mailer. Final Price .99.
  • Lucerne Eggs - $1.79, Used $.75/1 coupon from Dominicks mailer. Final Price $1.04
  • Lucerne Vanilla Milk single - .35 (50% off clearance for date)
  • Lucerne Sour Cream - $.88 with coupon from Dominicks mailer
  • Yoplait Fiber One Yogurt - $2.79, Used expired FREE coupon. Final Price FREE!
  • Yoplait Delights Yogurt - $2.79, I thought I had $3 in e-coupons but only 2 came off, so final price of .79 (thought this was free with overage otherwise I wouldn't have bought it)
  • Hamburger Buns - .99 (for dinner tonight)
  • Raisin Bread - $2, Used .50/1 coupon from Dominicks mailer. Final Price $1.50
  • Pork Chops - 30% off clearance. Final Price $1.98
  • 5 lbs of Potatoes - FREE with Dominicks mailer coupon
  • Lettuce - .99 with Dominicks mailer coupon
I also spent $1.47 at Jewel on Blueberries and corn with my $2 off produce coupon and $4.76 at Valli on a watermelon, cantaloupe and kiwi.

What did you get at Dominick's this week?

Jewel: Sonicare Replacement Heads 2-Pk $10.99!

My very first BzzAgent Campaign 4 years ago was for a Sonicare Electric Toothbrush. I was so excited to receive such a nice product for FREE to try and BZZ about to my friends. The only bad thing about it is the cost of the replacement heads usually around $30 for a 2-pk!! I usually try to get them much cheaper when they go on sale at CVS and use up some ECBs to buy them but this is a great deal!

Sonicare Replacement Heads on Clearance 50% off - $15.99
Use the $5/1 coupon from 5/1 or 6/13 SS
Final Price $10.99!

Then send in for this $5 Sonicare Replacement Head Rebate if you haven't already done it and your final price $5.99!

School Supply Shopping 7/13/10

I did a little school supply shopping today and thought I would share in case you are supply shopping too. I kept track of how low some items went last year so that I would know if I was getting a good deal or not this year (although there are some things on the list this year that are new).

  • 2 8-pks of Pencils - .01 each
  • 10 Multicolored Folders - .01 each
  • Multipurpose Paper - .01 after rebate ($4.99 with $4.98 rebate)
  • Mini Stapler - $1
I purchased the paper and the mini stapler because there was a $5 min purchase requirement to get the "extreme penny deals". We were in need of these items for my husband's business anyway.

  • Mario Cart Backpack - $9
  • Mario Cart Lunchbox - $6
  • Composition Notebooks - .25
  • Spiral Notebooks - .15
  • Rose Art Glue Sticks 2-pk - .20
  • Elmer's Glue Sticks 2-pk - .25
Yes I chickened out on the glue...we've never used Rose Art Glue before and I just didn't know how well it worked. So we got Elmer's for the school list and I got a pack of Rose Art to use for homework projects so we can test it out for next year!

Summer of Kung Zhu Party & Review

I have 2 boys (ages 6 1/2 and 3 1/2) so I was super excited when MomSelect and Kung Zhu choose us to host a Summer of Kung Zhu party! It was like Christmas morning when we unpacked all of our Kung Zhu goodies and took them out of the boxes to set up our training ground playset and battle arena (putting together the playsets was rather easy too, they just snap right together)! Just look at all the toys they sent to us!!

Everything we needed for an unforgettable party, hours of interactive entertainment, and little hamster friends to take home for my boys and their friends! The Kung Zhu Line is made up of 2 tribes - The Delta Forces and the Skull Tribe! The Delta Forces tribe is made up of Rocko and Stonewall, who team up with Rangers Duke and Sergeant Serge. Also on the side of good are Kung Zhu Ninjas Drayko and Yama. While each of these hamsters have their own zany and determined personality, they join together with one goal in mind- to keep the no-good warriors from the Skull Tribe, Azer and Thorn, from wreaking havoc on the Zhu-niverse! Kung Zhus are far from being cute and cuddly Zhu Zhu pets but they are super cool!

(the kids picking out a Kung Zhu - will they choose good or evil?)

It was fun to watch them carefully select which Kung Zhu they wanted so that they could be on the same tribe together! Some of the kids already have their own Kung Zhus and they were excited to add to their collection! Once they opened them up and dressed them in their battle armor it was time to head to the training ground and then to the battle arena!

Kung Zhus are not just for boys...the girls at the party wanted in on the action too! And they were more than happy to put their pretty pink zhu zhus into battle training and action!

The kids has such a great time, so much that they barely touched the snacks that were put out in the kitchen! Since the training ground is so large all of the kids could play at the same time and no one was fighting (always a big plus in my book)! The only thing that went awry during our party is the batteries in some of the pets needed to be changed out, which was disappointing since we just opened them up, but once they got new batteries in them they were back in business!

Thanks so much to MomSelect and Kung Zhu for giving us the opportunity to try out these new toys and share them with our friends! Not only did each family go home with at least one Kung Zhu and armor set, we raffled off the Kung Zhu tanks and another Kung Zhu set since we had an extra! Want some for of your own? Kung Zhu are available at Toys R Us, Target, and Walmart!
