CHEAP Huggies Diapers at CVS (5/19-5/25)!!!!

Well folks, a new coupon for Huggies diapers has just been released. This high value $3.00 off ANY one package of Huggies diapers will be amazing to use with this week's CVS sale! (In order to get the $3.00 coupon, you will need to SHARE the offer. Otherwise, you will only receive the $2.00 coupon.)

This coupon is a PDF file, which means that a screen will pop up allowing you to print multiple of this coupon. (Do not change the number of copies from one, though, when the print screen pops up.) You will want to make sure that if you print multiple of this coupon, the codes under each coupon barcode is different. If the codes on all of the coupons are the same and they are redeemed in store, it is the same as copying coupons (which is illegal).

Tip: When looking at your printed coupon, look at the square box to the right of the coupon. Underneath that will be a code with a combination of numbers and letters. If your coupons print with the same code, then you will need to refresh the page. Refreshing the page should give you a coupon with a new code.

As I mentioned earlier this week, the CVS sale is spend $30 (before coupons), and you will receive a $10.00 extra care buck. Keep in mind that you can only do this deal once. There a variety of ways that you can do this deal:

Deal Idea #1:

Buy one Huggies Jumbo Pack Pull-ups $10
-Use two $3.00 off Huggies coupons (You will need to share the offer in order to get the coupon.)
-Use one $2.00 off Huggies Pull-ups coupon (Will have to register)
-And use one $2.00 Huggies Pull-ups CVS coupon Pay $20.00, receive $10 ecb
That's like paying $10 for three packs of diapers!

Deal Idea #2:
Buy three Huggies Snug & Dry Jumbo Pack Diapers $10 each = $30
-Use three $3.00 off Huggies coupons (Follow the instructions for the tip that I left above)
Pay $21.00, receive $10 ecb

You could also do a mix and match with other items as well. Check my previous blog post for a list.

If you have any questions at all, please ask.

Target Cartwheel: More Ways to Save Money

Target has come out with an amazing coupon program called "Cartwheel." Cartwheel gives you a percentage off your purchase. The awesome thing about it is that it can be used with Manufacturer coupons AND Target coupons! My favorite thing about Cartwheel is that you don't have to own a smartphone in order to use it! I have been testing out this new program so that I can tell you all about it!

To join Cartwheel, all you have to do is head to the Target Cartwheel site. Then, you add different offers to your Cartwheel. The way you add a offer is by clicking on the name of the item. Then, click the add button. You will know that an offer has been added because it will have a red check mark in the upper right hand corner.

When you're ready to redeem the offer:

1. Click on "My Cartwheel" at the top of the page.

2. Once you're on the "My Cartwheel" page, look for the words "redeem in store" on the right side of the page. This will allow you to print out your Cartwheel to take to the store with you or you can just pull up the offer barcode on your phone to have it scanned.

3. When checking out at the store, hand your printed paper or phone to the cashier. They will scan the barcode and the Cartwheel savings will automatically deduct from each purchase.

I am loving the new Cartwheel program! The penny savings add up really quickly!

Have You Joined Swagbucks Yet?

$220 in Amazon gift cards and $15 in Papa Johns gift cards definitely helps out with the family budget! Swagbucks has been the way to go for my family. Even my husband loves this site! (Nowadays, he's on it more than I am!)

Swagbucks is a site with a search engine similar to Google. The main difference is that you're randomly awarded swagbucks (or points) when you search. Once you have enough points, you can redeem them for things in the Swag Store.

This picture doesn't show even show half of the Amazon gift cards that I've gotten because of this site, and I have enough points in my account for another $20 worth of gift cards.

What I love about Swagbucks:
  • You can earn Swagbucks for printing coupons from their site (the same that you would find on and redeeming them in store
  • You can make money by sharing your opinions about products
  • You can make money by watching tv (seriously, this is my husband's favorite feature)
When I first started with Swagbucks, I would make most of my money by taking surveys. That's a quick way for those points to add up. I typically took the surveys that were shorter and offered the most Swagbucks.

To sign up for Swagbucks, all you have to do is head on over here.

Oh, and another great thing is that every Friday is Mega Swag Bucks Day! This means that when you do a search the odds are more in your favor to get higher value swagbucks (20 points and up). So whatcha waiting for? Free money is calling your name!

FREE Frozen Fruit & Milk Bars

Kroger (this includes the affiliate stores) is offering a very nice freebie coupon that's available to load to card today only! Head on over to the coupon section of the Kroger website and sign in to load the FREE Fruttare Frozen Fruit & Milk Bars OR Fruit & Juice Bars multipack coupon to your card. You will find the coupon under the frozen foods category.

Remember, the coupon is only available for you to load to your card today only! Once you load it to your card, though, it is valid until June 30. That should give you plenty of time to go to the store to pick up a box!

Thanks, Censtable Shoppin!

Barnes and Noble Nook Simple Touch for $19.97!

Radio Shack has the Barnes and Noble Nook Simple Touch on sale for $19.97 (down from $79.99)! This deal is sold out online, but you can still purchase it in store for this price. You will have to go here and click on "Find it Nearby." Type in your zip code and a list of stores near you will pop up. You will have to call the store to see if they have any in stock!

Be quick as they are selling out really fast! This would be an excellent gift for Mother's Day coming up!

**Apparently, they are selling these at such a low price because tablets are much more popular than simple e-readers. Having such a low income, we are not able to buy a tablet right now, but this Nook is the perfect price for budget!

Thanks, Hip2Save!

$0.50 Stayfree Pads and o.b. Tampons at Rite Aid!

Rite Aid has a super deal on feminine hygiene products this week (5/5-5/11). Carefree liners 30-60ct or Ultra 16ct, Stayfree Sanitary Protection Pads 14-24 ct, o.b. Tampons 18 ct are all on sale for 2 for $6.00. In addition to the sale price, if you buy two of these products, you will receive a $3 up reward (coupon to be used on your next purchase of $3.00 or more).

I have created scenarios using only printable coupons:

Buy 2 Stayfree pads 2/$6
-Use (1) $1.00 off 1 Stayfree or o.b. product coupon found here
-And use (1) $1.00 off 1 Stayfree product found here (You will need to click "accept" and then enter some information to be able to print out the coupon.)
Final price: $4.00 and you will receive one $3 up reward for purchasing two

The reason that I have you print the coupons from two different sites is because the coupons will state "limit 1 coupon per person." The coupons at each site are different so you will be able to use both of them. In order to get around all of that, you could easily take along another person when you go shopping. This way, you'll be able to print two coupons from one site instead of printing from two different sites. (If that is unclear, please let me know. I'm here to help.)

You can do this deal twice. Also, be sure to refer to your ad to confirm that your region is participating in this deal.

Rite Aid Coupon Policy can be found here!
