No More Easy Saver Rebates

April will be the last month for Easy Saver Rebates at Walgreens. In my opinion, unless they come up with something AMAZING to replace the rebates this will be a nail in their far as coupon shoppers go anyway. This was the only part of Walgreens many saving methods that I never had a problem with...and now they are getting rid of it. Figures. This from Walgreens:

“Walgreens is always looking into the future. For this reason, we are looking at ways to revamp the rebate program to assist us in proceeding in an exciting direction. Although change is always intimidating we feel that it is time to develop a new loyalty program so we can offer our consumers new and improved services. You will continue to find the EasySaver Catalog in our stores through April. Please look for future advertisement regarding our new programs to come.”

I made that up so don't post it, but you get what I mean? We've been talking about dates with our kids and how to make them cheaper - let me know what you think? Vivian

99 Cent Baby Wipes!

This was also on Money Saving Mom, but I ran out this morning and tried it myself. The $5.00 Huggies Gentle Care coupon can be used to buy the Mega refill pack of Gentle Care Sensitive wipes (182 ct.) which is $5.99 at Target, making them $0.99! A great deal for those of us beyond the newborn size diapers, but still in need of wipes!

Then I would have received a full $8 off from the coloring book coupon, but they didn't have enough for that deal, so I just got the body wash instead. Still worked out to be about $4 for 8 bottles of stuff. Great baby shower fillers.

Hey Packers Fans!

There's a BIG sale at the Packer Pro Shop right now. My brother was visiting from Milwaukee this weekend and we stopped in there after visiting the Hall of Fame. They have a ton of stuff marked down 50%. I would say about 1/2 of the store is on sale. I'd been wanting a new Packer shirt since all I had was an old oversized sweatshirt from high school. I ended up getting two really cute tops; a long sleeve t-shirt marked down to $13 from $24 and a 3/4 sleeve shirt marked down to $15 from $26. I didn't get to look much at the kids' stuff, but I did see some really nice winter coats marked down to around $30 from $65. Lots of nice stuff on sale for low prices if you want some new Packer gear!
