WOW! A LOT of freebies at CVS! Keep in mind, to get these "freebies" you must pay for the item, then you received the ECB back. (Money to spend on next transaction.)

I am hoping the lines won't be too long...because I will be making SEVERAL transactions:) Pay attention to the limits. This is one reason I do not always do a CVS heist...they always have "LIMITS" and you cannot really stock up.

MMMMmmmm I love baking!!

I usually do not post things like what I bake on my blog, but I was in a baking mood and decided to share! Today I made chocolate chunk cookies as well as Rice Krispie treats. I did a little twist on the Krispie treats though! I mixed the chocolate Rice Krispies with equal parts regular. I also waiting for them to cool slightly and then pushed some pretzel M&Ms on top to give it some pretty Christmas color and add a little extra chocolate, crunchy kick! If you put them in while the bars are still a little soft, they will harden around them M&Ms. (But you don't want to put them in when its still warm enough to melt the M&Ms) They look SOO yummy!

What's your favorite goody to make at Christmas time? My favorite in my mom's M&M cookie recipe or Chocolate mint cookies!! mmm....its beginning to taste a lot like Christmas!!

Second Target Trip! Spent $22.60, brought home $60.59 worth of items!!

After doing some research this morning, I decided to make a second Target trip today. There were some super good deals I could not pass up on! It paid off for sure! I am not going to tell you exactly what I got, you can see that in the picture. I will tell you the coupon match ups though.

I spent $22.60 + tax out of pocket for $60.59 worth of items! I saved $37.99!! That's 63% in savings. With purchasing 25 things, I spent less than $1 an item. I also walked away with a $5 Target gift card for my next visit!

Buy two and use 40 cents off two coupon from previous newspaper inserts (There are lost of coupons out there for Campbells, just be careful that it matches the produt.) This makes them 30 cents each! I would have stocked up on more for baking if I had more than one of those coupons.

It was a manufacturer's coupon, not a Target coupon, so I could not combine with any other coupons. However, $2.04 for a bottle of children's pain medication is an AWESOME price! Hopefully you will be lucky enough to get a coupon printed out too!

For every person you send my way and they become a fan, you will get a chance in the drawing. There are not very many fans...so your chances are pretty big!

Meijer Black Friday Ad is out!!

Thanks to my friend Laura (And the talented designer of my new logo!!) I have the link to the Meijer black Friday ad for all you midwesterners:) Enjoy!

Get Paid for Your Opinion...its for real!

I was always skeptical of those "paid survey" websites, until this year. I have found a couple of really good sites where I have earned amazon.com gift cards, cash (I think a totaly of $37 since June. Not a lot...but its something!), and I also get to do product testing. If I qualify through a survey, they mail me a product with no name on it to test, then fill out the questionnaire. I get to use the product (sometimes its food, other times it has been hygiene items) and then I still get the points to go toward my monetary reward! Just two weeks ago I got a $10 amazon.com gift code just for giving my opinion on words for a bra commercial! ha! Some of the surveys are longer (20 minutes) but sometimes they are just a quick five minute survey to see if you qualify for something bigger. I suggest you check it out! Here are my two favorite sites that I use

Survey Savvy

Synovate

It takes a few minutes to sign up and set up your profile...then when you have time you can fill out the surveys they send you. No time that week? Don't fill them out! There is no minimum requirement, its all up to you! Every survey also gets you entered in drawings for monetary prizes as well as fun stuff like blue ray players.

Does anyone else have a good paid survey site they can share?

Here's One for the Starbucks Lovers!!

Starbucks is starting 12 Days of Giving. Every day they will have a new freebie or hot deal! Here is how it works: text message 12DAYS to 29943 to sign up. Every day for the 12 days, they will send you one text message letting you know what the special is that day! (Your plan's standard text message rates will apply.)

Thanks to For the Mommas for the heads up!

Some Good Deals at Target Week of 11/14

So most of you know that I am not a fan of Target other than for clothes and toys. Especially the groceries. Please. Do not ever buy groceries at Target UNLESS its a super good sale or Armageddon has begun and Target is the only store that is still in existence. I mean really, bananas 19 cents PER banana? Or lettuce for $3.49 a bag? Anyways...enough of my rant...now for the good deals I saw there today.

Grade A large eggs- 99 cents for a dozen. That's a really good price!

5 LB bag of Gold Medal whole wheat flour- $2.87 (That's expensive for regular flour, but not for whole wheat flour! Its hard to find it that cheap, and I try to only use whole wheat flour.)

Select Del Monte canned vegetables 45 cents each (stock up price!)

Alexia sweet potato fries- $2.59 a bag!! This is for the plain sweet potato only. Buy two and use the two coupons you can print for $1 off for liking them on Facebook. $1.59 a bag for sweet potato fries is a pretty "Sweet" deal:)

Here's a really good one, but you need to do two transactions. Nestle refrigerated cookie dough is on sale for $1.96. Buy one, and use on $1 off coupon found here (Print it twice, because you will need two)
Pay 96 cents, get a print out "catalina" coupon for $1 off Nestle cookie dough. (This is a Target coupon)
Buy one more package of Nestle refrigerated cookie dough, use another $1 off printed coupon along with the $1 off Target coupon that printed in first transaction, and you will get the second package free:)
2 packs of Nestle cookie dough for 96 cents!

Folgers 33 ounce ground coffee tubs on sale for $6.49, use $1 off coupon from a previous newspaper insert

Remember to bring your own bags! 5 cents off per bag used! Not a lot, but tonight I brought 4 and got 20 cents off...better then nothing!

Also remember to sign up for the Target check card (NOT the credit card). Get 5% off every purchase! I spent under $20 tonight and saved over $1 for using my card. It links directly to your checking account, just like a debit card. No fees, no APR. Its totally worth it!

11/15 Freebie Mailbox Check!

This is what I received FREE in my mailbox today!

American Baby, Women's Health, Martha Stewart Living, and All You magazine. (All four were completely FREE year subscriptions for filling out surveys. I have not come across one of these opportunities since starting this blog...but I will let you know when another one comes up!)

FREE sample of Hugo Boss cologne.

FREE pair of socks from powersocks.com!

FREE sample of Mizani Supreme Oil hair treatment
