Free YoPlus & a good reseaon to keep your receipts


My Sister Jessica was reading the paper today and saw a ad that said if you send in your Activia UPC & Receipt to YoPlus they would send you a coupon for a Free YoPlus. Now Activia is a Dannon product and has been free at Kroger the last few weeks. So I happen to still have two in my fridge and since I keep my receipts I can do this rebate:) I always keep my receipts in envelopes my month. You never now when a old receipt will turn into a rebate.
If you still have some of your Activia and your receipts here is the link to print the Rebate
(One per address) Kroger does not start new sales till Monday so you can still pick this up tomorrow.
Click here to see some other good reasons to keep your receipts.

Making the most out of a good deal

I posted about the Kraft Velveeta Shells and Cheese deal this week at Meijer
Velveeta Shells and Cheese Cubs $1.19
Use B1G1 Free from 8/9 SS
Stack with the $1/2 Meijer coupon
Final price will be $.19 but you will get $1 Catalina so a $.81 money maker
(Only 1 Catalina will print per order so if buying more then 2 do separate orders also give them the B1G1 free coupon first then the $1/2)

I try and take advantage of good deals when they come around if I can. This deal only cost me $.19 each time but I get a $1 Catalina to spend on anything else I need like meat or fruit...
Once I was done with my 20 orders I had
Spend $3.80 OOP (out of pocket)
Received 40 Kraft Cups and $20 in Catalina's
That left me a $16.20 money maker

I know not every one buys 20 papers but if you want to take advantage of great deals like this and to stockpile items you will use, you should be buying at least 3-6 papers a week if you can. Here is a good article on stockpiles from Sharpenyourscissors. And below is a copy of my receipt and what the $1 Catalina looks like.

My New Stock Room

My husband built me a new stock room a few weeks ago. (I love it) I went to a scrapbooking party which took all day and when I got home he had cleaned out our small storage room, painted the walls (with $5 paint that someone returned to Home Depot), put in carpet (was a remnit form a local carpet company) and build be shelf's, desk, small wooden storage boxes, step stool and if that was not enough to make me cry he had my girls use expired coupons to make art projects out of then framed them with some old frames he found while cleaning. WOW I am lucky!!!!!

In honor of my new room I decided to host a coupon party at my house last week. The party was a great success and there are now more family's out there saving money with coupons. I have been waiting till after the party to post photos of my new stock room so here they are. Thanks again to my husband Jeremy for all his hard work and all the love he put into my room I love it and I love it you.

Food Pantrys in Need

All over MI there are food Pantry's & other organizations who help fight hunger on a local level in need. These Organizations have fewer donations and more people who need their services. That is not a good combination. We couponers often pick up more then we need or items we don't even plan on using. (only if they are free or we make money of course:)

So when I got a e-mail that said Food Gatherers was running low, I decided to see what I could put together for a donation.
Today was the first time I have been to this organization. They where very nice and great full for the donation. They are very unique in that they have a large garden so that they can give fresh produce out. They also encourage others to plant a row in their garden for Charity's like theirs. Here is there mission statement

Food Gatherers exists to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community by: reducing food waste through the rescue and distribution of perishable and non perishable food; coordinating with other hunger relief providers; educating the public about hunger; and developing new food resources.

Here is a Link to their web site, if you live in the Ann Arbor area and you can donate keep them in mind.

They take your donation by weight mine came to 100pounds. The dollar value of all of it came to $451.74






I love that through couponing I am able to help others, something like this would not have been possible for my family to do before coupons.

Coupon Flyers at Walgreens and $.79 Diaper wipes

In the front of store with the weekly adds are Back-2-School Coupon Books. In it are 28 coupons one of which is $2/1 Huggies 64 ct or larger.

Huggies Tubs $3.29 (the ones I bought where 72ct)
Use $2/1 From Back-2-School coupon book
Stacked with $.50/1 coupon from 7/19 Smart Source
Final price is $.79 a box

I wanted to pay with a RR's so I had to buy one of the $.09 folders to go with it.

Note: The register peeped when I tried my $.50/1 coupon since it rang up that the $2/1 was also a Manufactures but the Manager said I should still be able to use a Manufactures coupon since the one in the Back-2-School hand out scans like the ones in the weekly adds. (you don't have to cut out they just scanned it and it rang up for all 4 of my items in one scan and I kept the coupon)
I am not sure if all stores will be this nice about it though I went to the Brighton location by Old23.

Free PC tune up at Staples

I wanted to try this out before I posted to see if there where any surprises.
So now through the end of 9/19 Staples is offering a free PC Tune up normally $29.99.
Just bring in your computer and power cord make sure to back up any critical information. I dropped it of on Tuesday and it was ready to pick up Thursday. They where very nice and there where no hidden fees. They did suggest that I add some gig I said I would think about it and that was the end of it. No hard sell or pressure to get extras. I was pleased when I booted it up, does seem to run a bit faster (5 Years old) and I can tell they cleaned it up a bit and all my information was intact. I went to the Brighton location.

Here is what is included in the tune up
Thorough PC cleaning (deleting Internet cookies and temporary Internet files), clean up dust and dirt buildup, disk defragmentation and disk clean up.

I was not paid or given anything to post this I just think it is a good deal. I use my Internet a lot and get a lot of cookies... so it is nice to get it cleaned up for free this is my older computer so gets bogged down faster then the newer ones.

Update* Pick up some Free All, Tide & Kotex at Target

Update* So I actually got the time to run out to Target today and was able to get some Free Kotex. (think donations if you don't use or have just way to much)

Kotex Liners are $2.70
Use $2/1 Target Coupon from 7/26 SS
Stack with $.75/1 Coupon From either the 7/19 SS insert or 6/14 SS insert (will mark down to $.70)
Final price is Free
(there where also $1/1 Kotex coupons in the same papers take those to Walmart for free liners)

In this Sundays Paper (8/2) there where coupons for $1/1 All (Red Plum) and Tide (P&G)

Take these to Target and hit the travel section (trial sizes) there you will find small packets of Tide and Small bottles of All. The coupons say any so it is OK to use on these small items.

The Tide is $.97 so they will have to mark your coupon down but the All is $1.00 so that rang up fine at my Target. Print off a copy of the coupon Policy and take it with you in case your cashier says they can't mark down a coupon. (it clearly states they can)

I can think of a college student or two who would love these. The All is two loads and the Tide is one so for a College kid or someone on a budget this is great. (will have to pay tax about .36)

Help our Military donate your Expired Coupons



Even though we can no longer use our expired coupons our overseas Military men and woman can. They can use them for up to six months past the expiration date and we all should have a ton that expired on 7/31 or 8/1 these are great since it can take many weeks to reach the bases.

Also since the bases are US Territory it will cost the same to mail your coupons to them as it would be your neighbors :)

Here is a link to the bases that would like coupons
Here is a link for detailed information on how to mail them

(I will add these links to my Resource center found at the top right of my blog)

This is a small act but could mean a lot to our Military men and woman who are also just trying to get bye.

Thank you to all the men and woman who sacrifice so much to make sure my family and freedoms are kept safe.
