New Blog

I have started a new blog that is dedicated primarily to bargain shopping and frugal living.

This site started out as a church related calling, so I would like to keep it mainly for that purpose. I will continue to post best grocery deals on both sites, but content on each site will be different.

If you are here for the bargains, I strongly recommend that you update your favorites with the new site. I will be in both places, though! :)

The new site is:

Look for a new blog design, easy navigation, lot of information for beginners, and, as always, the BEST grocery deals!

Happy Shopping!


The Disney Store at San Tan Village had several of their costumes for 50% off. Get a cheap costume for this year, or save it for next.

If you are planning a Disney getaway, this is a great way to save on a dress for your little princess. They are $65 in the park. Get one at the Disney Store for around $20.

Visit a store or shop online.

Super Cheap Tylenol Cold at Walgreen's

To add to the $5/20 coupon deal, you could also do the following:

"I went to my walgreens today to pick up a November Easy Saver catalog and realized that this week Tylenol Cold is on sale for $4.99 each and if you buy 3 you will get $5.00 in Register Rewards.

There is a $1.50 off coupon in October's Easy Saver. There are also $1.00/1 coupons floating around from a recent insert. That would make each Tylenol Cold $2.49 x 3 = $7.47. And you would get $5.00 back so your grand total out of pocket is only $2.47 for 3 packages. Not a bad deal! I haven't seen this mentioned on any other blogs!"

Thanks Nicole. This deal was listed as a comment from Money Saving Mom.

Coupon Class Saturday, November 8th

I promised a fall coupon class, so I finally set a date!

When: Saturday, November 8th
Time: 10:00 am
Where: My home in Queen Creek
What: Learn about how to:

  • Cut your grocery bill in at least half
  • Maximize the benefits of using coupons
  • Get stuff for FREE
  • Work on building your food storage/year supply
  • Utilize FREE resources
  • Organizing coupons
I am NOT selling anything. This workshop will focus on FREE services and resources (i.e. I will NOT be advocating the "subscription" coupon services). The only investment required is acquiring Sunday Paper coupons (which you could get for free from family etc.) and some time (as little or as much as you have to put into it).

The workshop is FREE. It is geared towards beginners, but anyone is welcome to attend.

I live in Queen Creek. Anyone is welcome!

There will be door prizes, and FREEBIES if you bring a friend.

See you there!

Please e-mail me at if you plan on attending and for directions to my home.

I will be unveiling my "Best Price List, Version 1" which features the items we frequently get on sale with coupons so you know what the best prices are.

Once Upon a Child Sale

I got this in my e-mail from Once Upon a Child. I LOVE this store. When you sign up in store for e-mail updates you get a $5 coupon. They also have a rewards program.

I love Fry's!

Based on this week's sales (Quaker breakfast promo), the $5/$25 Whole Foods Coupon (which expired today), and my $5 catalina from the candy promo here is what I got:

30 Boxes of Quaker Brand cereal
6 Boxes Oatmeal to Go
12 Boxes Green Giant Frozen Veggies
6 Cat Treats (I don't have a cat, but my mom does...)
8 Boxes Puffs Kleenex
6 Boxes Herbal Tea
1 squeeze bottle of lemon juice (not on sale, but I needed it!)
2 lbs. grapes
2 lbs pears

Grand total of $14.99
Saved: $219.58

The lady behind me asked me if I really save a lot with coupons. Yes, yes I do.

Also, keep in mind that I did multiple transactions because of the 3 coupon rule, and a limit of 1 reward per transaction for the Quaker deal.

Happy shopping!
