It's Raining 'Free' This Week!





    WOW! There are loads of FREE goodies all week this week...took a while to compile them all! If you think of one I missed, let me know!

    Many thanks to Couponing 101 and Surviving the Stores of many of these finds! These ladies are TRUE coupon divas, check out their blogs for tons of goodies!

    A few reminders...Albertsons, Kroger, and Tom Thumb ALL double/triple coupons every day. These sales prices reflect that double/triple action that we love! TT has a couple of store coupons this week that you can 'stack' with your manufacturer coupon! Their sales run Wednesday - Tuesday (in this case, March 11 - 17).

    Double: Up to 50¢

    Triple: Up to 35¢

    Walgreens/CVS do not double/triple coupons but they always have a ton of great store coupons that they will allow you to "stack" with your manufacturer coupons for extra savings. I always suggest using your manufacturer coupon before the Walgreens coupon to ensure you get your full savings! Their sales run Sunday - Saturday (in this case, March 8 - 14).

    **Ok, guys...I was so sad to see that at my Super Target - the broccoli was $1.50/head and the goldfish crackers were $1.79. :( Let me know if your Target has lower prices! You never know - I may be 'in the neighborhood' this weekend!

    Oh! Check out Southern's a new fave site of mine. She has some incredible southern dishes/recipes with step-by-step instructions (and pictures for those of us that require more detail!) I tried the Coca Cola Cake last night & brought it to work. It's almost gone - must mean its yummy! Next - I'm trying the super moist pineapple upside down cake. YUMMM!!!!
