Free Book from B&N

Here is a very happy Wesley holding his free book from the Barnes and Noble summer reading program. If you have a child going into grades 1 through 6 they can earn a free book by reading eight. Just download the form from the B&N website (or get it from the store) and fill it out. When you bring the filled out form to the store the readers get to choose a free book. There's still plenty of time...the program runs through September 7th.

Finally some Freebies at CVS

FREE!!!!! YES!!!!!

I admit ladies that I have not been Miss super shopper lately. I just have not taken the time to even look at the ads (partly b/c I was so stocked up) and I was getting pretty disappointed with what I saw.

Today I went to CVS and got all this free - now I have $14 in ECB's to spend. I let the last $6 expire b/c I hadn't been to CVS in over a month - SAD!!!!

Last year I ended up doing most of my school shopping at Walgreens because the deals were so good. Glad to see CVS having some - but quite frankly their supply is VERY, VERY limited. Walgreens makes a whole special aisle just for school shopping.

Has anyone figured out exactly WHAT THE STRATEGY IS at Walgreens and CVS now? With no rebates and few FREE items - has anyone learned any secrets yet? Or did they just get tired of all of us making money off of them? I figured they would eventually stop but I was hoping it wouldn't be for a long time.

Coupons this weekend

Just thought I'd remind you all that there will only be a P&G insert in this Sunday's paper. Actually, I was surprised that we'd even be getting that...usually there are NO coupons on a holiday weekend. So, no need to buy the MJS or CT. And remember that Dollar Tree has the GBPG for $1 each on Sundays...if you want more than one P&G insert that would be the way to go!

Have a safe and happy 4th of July everyone!!

Kids Workshop July 4th

Kellogg's FREE plus overage at Copps today!!

Make sure you run to Copps today for the Kellogg's deal, 8/$10 after instant $10 discount. I used 6 $1.00 cereal coupons and a $0.55 pop tart coupon. All totaled, after the deal and my doubled coupons, I got 6 boxes of cereal, one box of pop tarts and one box of Nutrigrain bars for FREE plus $1.55 overage. I love it! Copps has been great lately, don't you think? I know I've been scoring some great deals. Today I spent just $29.53 and saved $40.91!

On a side note, I have to agree that CVS has been quite disappointing for a while now. I spent the last of my ECB's to get diapers about a month ago and haven't been back since. Just got the $5 off coupon in my email for the 4th of July sale, and quarterly ECB's, so we'll see if there's anything worthwhile in this Sunday's flyer. Luckily we're very well stocked on most items from when the deals were good, so I haven't missed it much. I hope the deals get better soon though!
