Cheap and cheerful solution to your boo-boos!

Is it just me, or do other people have an aversion to bandaids because of their smell?  Ugh.  Well since I don’t love bandaids, but do sometimes have to use one, I always buy kids’ bandaids with cartoons on them so at least they are fun and cheerful, not ugly like regular “flesh” colored bandages.  I notice even though most other “grownups” don’t use kiddie bandages, they always smile when they see mine!  So…if you have kids, or just like cartoon bandages like me, now’s your chance to get some on the cheap!

Target has Nexcare Bandages for $1.77
They also have a printable 50¢ coupon on their site right now.
Stack that with the $1.00 Nexcare coupon at (look under Personal Care)

Your total will be only 27¢ for each box (you can print 2 of each coupon if you want to buy two)

For those who are new to couponing, some stores (including Target) allow you to use one store coupon and one manufacturer coupon on the same item.  This is called “stacking”.  Also, to get the best deals, don’t wait until you are completely out of something and have to pay full price for an item you need, buy stuff when there’s a really good deal (like this one) and then you’ll have it in your cupboard when you need it and won’t have to pay more that you should!

This post could save someone’s life!

Bayer Aspirin is on sale for $1.00 at CVS this week
Use the $1.00 off coupon here (you can print this twice)
= 2 bottles FREE!

(Ok well, you do have to pay tax…I paid 19¢)

I’m not a doctor and can’t give medical advice, but I have heard that if someone is having a heart attack and they chew an aspirin it could save their life!  So, even though I don’t often take aspirin, I always keep some around the house just in case!

Thanks Money Saving Mom

Sunday shopping trip

Not too bad!  I went shopping yesterday, and I bought all the stuff you see here for a total of $3.89!

Here are the details:


Pepperidge Farms cookies—Sale price $2.99—Used $1 off coupon= $1.99  (I only had one coupon, but it would be cheaper if you have two as the sale price is 2/$5.00)

Stayfree pads—Sale price $2.99–Used $1 off coupon–Received $3.00 Register Reward=FREE plus overage

Nestle candy bars–In-ad coupon price 39¢ each

Softsoap Liquid Hand Soap–$3.29–With In-ad coupon 99¢ each

I also paid with two $2.50 RR from the U by Kotex deal, so my total here with tax was only $3.67 (Savings=$17.10)

In between stores I stopped off at McDonalds and got a Large Fries and Dasani bottled water for free thanks to a certificate I had from Finney’s Friday Free Stuff.  (I won’t eat a whole large fries by myself, so I took them home and shared them and ate the rest of my lunch from home.)


Ocean Spray cranberry juice–Sale price 2/$5.00 (plus bottle deposit 10¢ ea)

Wheat Thins–Sale price $1.00 each–Used two $1 off  coupons from Facebook=FREE

FIg Newtons–Sale price $1.00 each–Used two $1.00 off coupons from Facebook=FREE

I paid with 3 Extra Care Bucks certificates from previous offers–totaling $4.98

My total out of pocket here was 22¢ (Savings $15.52)

Unfortunately I forgot to bring my shopping bag with the CVS bag tag on it, so I missed out on my 25¢ towards future ECBs.  Still all in all it was a good shopping trip.
