In today’s paper (10/2) you should have received the P&G Coupon Insert. Inside is an $8/2 FACE PRODUCT coupon. Face products have been defined as foundation, concealer, powder and blush. The CG Cheekers blush is priced at $3.97 each at my Walmart. In other regions I’ve heard it priced even less. I made 3 cents off of each blush I “bought” today. I had three coupons so I bought six blushes FOR FREE AND had change to apply to my other items. Go get a paper if you haven’t, yet! One compact of blush will more than pay for the money you spend on the paper and you will walk out with two of them! You may just want to buy two of them if you like CoverGirl Blush! I have some rockin’ ladies in my church who hook me up with the coupons they don’t use so I only buy one paper.
Thanks to MoneySavingMom.com for alerting me to this deal HERE!
We’ve been downloading some of the free on-line printable resources for preschool and Kindergarten aged children that MoneySavingMom alerted me to. I tried them out today, hoping they will work for Ella’s Busy Bag at church during the sermon. She begged to start working with them today while Ezra napped! Here, Ella is rolling a die and graphing her results. The pattern for the die is included in the printable pack. We printed it on card stock, cut it out, folded it and taped. A spinner is another alternative in the pack. She is having so much fun. A sheet protector turns a resource into a reusable one! I now have a binder full of sheet protected activities. All Ella needs are some dry erase markers and some tissues for erasing. We found some cheap dry erase markers in the $1 Spot at Target. Cheap, educational, and fun! What more could you ask for!?! Did I mention that this one is also QUIET!?!
What are your favorite Busy Bag Activities? What are some great tips to help activities be used more than once???
CVS has lots of great deals this week that you can earn Extra Care Bucks (ECB’s) with. I shared about my success on Sunday here. If you remember, I shared about “rolling” one’s Extra Care Bucks or ECB’s. So, today I took advantage of the Softsoap Body Wash deal where you buy 3 body washes for $9 and earn $3 in Extra Care Bucks. I knew I had $10 ECB’s to use so I had to spend more than just $9. Sometimes I let Ella pick out some gum with the free dollar. But, I was on my last body wash from my stash so I decided to just add a fourth body wash. I knew there was a Softsoap coupon in a previous insert but I wasn’t sure if it was expired. Sure enough, I found that coupon in the 3/27 Smart Source insert and it was valid until April 16th. I ended up finding the duplicate insert (a nice lady from church hooks me up with her inserts after she has clipped what she wants) so I had two $1 off Softsoap coupons.
$2 in coupons plus $10 in Extra Care Bucks equals $12. Four body washes at $3 each equals $12!
*I also earned $3 in Extra Care Bucks to use in a future transaction! I walked out with FREE bodywash AND gained $3 in ECB’s! It’s almost as if they paid me for the trouble of taking the body wash off their shelves! I can handle that!
