CVS & Walgreens 6-14

Check here to see the coupon matchups this week at CVS
A few good deals but nothing too exciting to me!
I may skip it!
However Walgreens looks like another story to me!!
Go here to see the deals.
Here's my plan!
Edit -- My plan might be turned up side down... I've been told that the Chip's Ahoy arn't on sale 2/$5. as it says... They may be 2/$7. which isn't as good a deal. Check your store to be sure.

.65 - Hefty one zip 3.29 bogo - 2- $1./1 MQ

Anyone see anything I missed???

Complete Laundry System Review and 17 winner Giveaway!

I've heard so much about the Complete Laundry System
and have been dying to try it out.
I can't even express how impressed I was with this system! I have not used one ounce of laundry detergent since I received it 2 weeks ago!!!
This wonderful company sent me a whole box of goodies including a complete laundry system, lip wonders, an ayate cloth, and goat milk soaps. Every single product was wonderful!
Let's break down the laundry system.

I can't even image how much money it will save not ever having to buy laundry soap again. It may sound gross but it's not, read on.
I feel I gave it the ultimate test and it passed with flying colors. What's the ultimate test you ask.... Camping clothes! You know the ones that smell so strong with campfire smoke you can hardly stand it. I can normally still smell smoke on a several items after washing them with regular detergent. I decided to try it with just the ball no detergent, knowing it would fail!! I mean how can they get clean with no detergent. I pulled them out when they were done and with disbelief not a hint of smoke ON ANYTHING!!!! I let my hubby smell just to make sure my smeller was working! He said the same thing NO SMELL!!! WOW! Made me a believer!
So how does it work?? Well their website says that there's a mineral blend in the ball that through physics creates a energy field that makes the water in its best cleaning state. The detergent doesn't do the cleaning the water does. Read more about it here.
Don't believe it?? I didn't either until I tried it. If it wasn't clean wouldn't it still smell like smoke? To me smoke is harder to get out of clothes than dirt or grime. So if it cleaned that, to me it's CLEAN!!!
One more tid bit of proof... Towels! We only wash our towels a few times a week, not every time we use them. After a couple times they get this musty smell. Guess what that is... Soap build up. After 2 weeks of washing with no detergent that smell has disappeared. Hmmmm that actually proves that it's cleaner NOW than when I used detergent.

Okay on to the dryer balls.
I found HUGE savings in these little balls. I normally set my dryer to the max 70 minutes and then turn it back 20 more minutes for a total of 90 minutes per load. According to their site I knew they were supposed to cut drying time. So I set it to 60 minutes knowing there's NO WAY it could cut that much time. I mean that's A LOT. Well the buzzer buzzed and yep you guessed it to my amazement they were dry!
WOW!! Ever watched how fast the electric meter spins when your dryer is on? I have and it's fast! 20-30 min. less dry time per load is
HUGE for our family of 6!
To avoid writing a book check out more details here on their website!

The normal washer balls work for approx. 3 years. They also carry a 1 yr. ball that you can try for less cost.
I would recommend this laundry system,
with confidence that you'll love it, to everyone!
At least I know I do!
Now to the good stuff

$10/$10. JcPenny Coupon Code

About a week ago I ordered this pair of jeans from JcPenny using a $10./$10. coupon code. The jeans came today and I LOVE THEM!!!
I decided to see if the code is still good to order another pair!!!
IT IS...
Use GR8DAD at checkout for $10. off your order
Shop the outlet area here for great deals
My jeans were St. John's Bay for
$12.99 (normal $40.)
-$10. coupon
+5.95 s/h
+ .63 cents tax
Grand Total $9.57 shipped to my house
They have lots of sizes available, these jeans are below the belly but show nothing when you bend over!!! Perfect!
YIPEE, okay I'm a little excited, but that's cheap for great jeans!!!

Weekly Groceries!

Great week!!! ....Total for all this...
$36.58 oop (105 items)
I hardly believed that total myself,
But I did use $15. in Catalina's...
That makes it a little more believable!!!!
Let me explain!!
Spent $13.26 at Kroger for 34 items (71% savings)
(10 of those are KoolAid Packets)
Spent $15.78 at Aldi for 28 items (haven't been to Aldi's in a long time. Best place I've found for tomato sauce (.25) and canned mushrooms (.50) !)
Spent $6.35 at Meijer for 29 items (used a $3. and $2. Cat.)
That's the crazy total, but after catalina's it's for real!!
And $1.19 at Walgreen's for 14 items (used my free $10. RR from last week)
All together that's $36.58 oop (+ $10. in RR and $5. Cat.) for 105 items
or .35 cents per item!!!!
(10 kool aid pks and 21 cans tomato sauce helped this total look really good)
without that it's still under .50 cents per item!!!
I also bought 3 gallon milk at CVS but it only cost me $1. Since I used the $5. overage from the Contour monitor deal this week!
You don't see any meat in my groc. pics. because we get all that at our local butcher. So each week I'm under budget I go there and use the extra on meat. I normally have around $6.-$10. of our $55. budget to spend there. That easily feeds us several meals of meat each week. Then there are other weeks like this one that I have more like $20. to spend and I can stock up a little for weeks that arn't so good!!!
I also didn't buy much produce this week since I still had apples and lettuce in the fridge.
Have a question??? Don't feel bad, just ask!!!

Question of The Week...

I thought it would be fun to get to know everyone with a fun simple question each week! Don't worry you won't have to think hard at all, I wouldn't want to work my brain either!!!
So this week's question...
What is your favorite Blizzard Flavor???
My answer -- Banana Split-- YUM!!
I'm not sure if they still have it??? I haven't been there in a long time since they closed the DQ that was in our town a couple years ago.
Leave a comment and let me know your favorite flavor!!!

Walmart 6-11

Here's a list of free or cheap items you can get at Walmart.
Even tho I'm pretty Anti-Walmart, sometimes you can get
pretty good deals there.
I visit once every couple months or less to try to get some freebies.
Also keep in mind that prices vary greatly. I usually go with a list and end up getting less than half what I was expecting because the prices were higher than it said online.
Enter at your own risk...
It's tempting to pick up other items and end up
with a bill over $100...
Be Strong!!!
