I am back from my amazing honeymoon to Mexico! The resort was beautiful, great food, great weather, and it was great to spend some quality time with my wonderful husband. I will post the week's drugstore deals, and be back in full swing on Jan 11th. I hope everyone had a great holiday season!!!

Well...this is my last post before my wonderful husband and I go to Mexico for our honeymoon!! I won't be posting for a week, and then I'll have very limited posting for another week following. Here are a few drugstore ad scans and deals. Remember, you can always visit Becentsable's Grocery Gathering for all the store deals each week!
The first, thanks to Freebies 4 Mom, is a FREE 8 x 10 from Snapfish (normally $2.99). Log on or register, chose a photo that you would like, and enter code WALFREE at checkout. You will have to pick up the 8 x 10 at a Walgreen's in order to get the deal. Also, you must order this on Friday or Saturday (you can pick it up anytime). I just ordered mine, and everything worked.
All of these items were made in China...click HERE for more information.
Here are a few recalls: 100,000 Majestic High Chairs made by Evenflo Co., Inc. after reports that the seat backs fall off... For more information, consumers can call Evenflo at 800-233-5921 or visit www.majestichighchair.com
Frugal Dad recently published a good article on the many uses of vinegar.
I've found vinegar to be very helpful around the house - cleaning, as an air-freshener, in laundry, etc. It's kind of a miracle liquid, and I'm sad that most people don't know about its many uses since it's much better for the environment than most household cleaners. Some people have a problem with the smell, but if you add a little bit of essential oil (whatever scent you love - I suggest lemon or citrus) to the solution, it'll cover the vinegar smell.
Click HERE to read the article. You can also do an online search to find even more ways to use vinegar or my other favorite cleaners - baking soda and Borox.
Click HERE for a good overview of what electronic coupons (e-coupons) are and how they can be used. I recently used them on my Kroger card. The best part is that you can stack the e-coupons on top of any other manufacturer's coupon.
Here's a scenario: Buy 4 pk Cottonelle at Kroger for $.99 Use a $1.00 off coupon from the Sunday paper Scan Kroger card, get $.50 off from Shortcuts.com $.50 off from Cellfire.com
Banana Republic is having a sale online and in-store. You can save up to 60% off selected styles. Free shipping over $150, $100 for Banana card holders, and totally free shipping for Luxe card holders (spend a specified amount annually).
This week at Walgreen's, you can purchase two Olay Regenerist moisturizers or cleansers that are on sale buy one get one 50% off. After using the coupon and rebate listed (an Olay rebate), you can actually make $5.01! Click HERE for more information, thanks to BeCentsable.
Thursday (tomorrow) is FREE shipping day at FreeShippingDay.com!! There are now over 200 merchants who are offering this deal. These merchants also have guaranteed shipment before Christmas. Click HERE for all of the details along with links to each merchant. Remember that certain minimums and restrictions will apply, so read the instructions on each website carefully.
If you would like FREE Christmas music this year, you should visit Amazon's 25 Days of Free Music webpage - HERE. They post a new tune each day of December with various artists and styles. I've enjoyed all the tunes I've downloaded so far.
You can see all the other music Amazon is offering for free HERE.
Kroger always seems to have great sales, and if I didn't have access to a military commissary, I would go there more often. Especially since they have the Kroger card deals and e-coupon options. Stacking coupons has gotten more exciting. I'll get into those more tonight...
Southern Savers (one of my favorite deal-gatherers) has a wonderful list of this week's deals and coupon match-ups. Click HERE to find it.
I'm heading over soon to take advantage of the free Cottonelle toilet paper (every week!), free Colgate toothpaste, Revlon/Almay deals, Tyson chicken, and Goody Ouchless products.
Well...I've decided I need to spice things up a bit on this blog! I'm going to be changing things around, and looking into finding a reason to keep this blog going.
I recently got out of the military and am now working on finishing a degree that I should have completed nearly seven years ago - has it really been that long?!
I've been toying with the idea of making money on the web just to keep myself A) from going crazy and B) so I'm bringing in a few dollars. I'm at home most of the time anyway, so this gives me an occasional break and it can assist with my creativity, something I feel I've lost along the way.
So...I need to think of a few topics to blog about. I also have considered an Amazon or Ebay shop, but that will take some more time.
I found an interesting site for recipes, RecipeMatcher.com. You can enter what you have in your pantry and refrigerator, and the site will find recipes that match the ingredients you already have or have most of the ingredients for. This is great if you need to save extra money or are leaving on a long trip!
