TARGET m&m's premiums moneymaker

like we need candy...
but we DO need 26¢ on each one!
target has the premium m&m's (almond, mint, or triple chocolate) on sale for $1.74. they are located in the christmas area.
use the $1/1 target coupons here
(print one for each flavor, i did use color ink so they looked different, you know our target abides by the "limit one per purchase" rule).
stack with the $1/1 manufacturers coupon from the 12/6 RP.
hand over the manufacturer's coupons first, then the target coupon.
final price FREE with 26¢ overage and no beeps!
hurry, this won't last long :)

by the way, there was a new cashier there tonight. she was an older woman, very friendly, and very sweet. i think her name was sue. good job target!

75¢/1 kleenex printable

i was looking at jenny's (southern savers) target post.
there is a link to the kmart website where you can print coupons.
jenny had mentioned this 75¢/1 manufacturers coupon.
target price $1.29.
but i checked on the harris teeter price, it's $1.79 for the box of 200.
so with a doubled coupon, final price 29¢!
this coupon does say "redeemable at kmart" and, but they are very small. i wouldn't think you would have a problem with it though.
*used it today (tuesday) at davidson harris teeter no beeps*

a reminder about the oak leaf wine at walmart

if you need some wine for your christmas dinner or a gift, let me remind you about the walmart wine.
the brand is "oak leaf" and walmart has several varieties.
every one we have tried is quite tasty and my research tells me that they get good reviews from folks who really know wine.
read one here.
and a funny one here.
the wines are amazingly priced at $2.97.
my favorite is the shiraz and my DH likes the cabernet sauvignon.
as for the whites, the zinfandel and pinot grigio are excellent.

erin's comments about the pinot grigio:
I think I am a red wine drinker. It was good because Mick really liked it, but I was dreaming of the cabernet the whole time which Mick doesn't really like. So, I might try a chardonnay next time and let you know. It is all for research so we can give the people the best information!

john mayer's new cd $3.99

maybe you night owls can get this.
i just found it and am assuming it's just for today.
*looks like it's still good today 12/19!* had john mayer's new cd "battlestudies" mp3 download for just $3.99.
my DH loves his music.
i have been so impressed with amazon's music download's.
and you can easily drag them to your itunes.
or with the amazon mp3 downloader, you can send them straight to your itunes.
they give me music credits, and always have good deals going on.
like the 25 days of free christmas music.
or 100 albums for just $5.

go here to get the john mayer.

my new favorite christmas song

And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say
to let You know how much
touched my life
Because here is where You're finding me,
in the exact same place as New
Year's eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We're less than half as close as I want to be

And the first time
That You opened Your eyes
did You realize that You would be my Savior

And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And so this Christmas I'll compare
the things I felt in prior years

To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
In the hope that what You did
That you were born so I might live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray
for You to save my life

you can download this song for free at
or get the whole album (20 songs!) for $5.

harris teeter buy one get one free items

i recently had an "ah-ha" moment in regards to harris teeter's buy one get one free coupon policy. as we all know, the policy states, "one coupon per buy one get one free item". i used to make way too many trips to buy one (at half price) and use my one coupon at a time.
but then i had a revelation... to buy 3 items, and use 2 coupons.
i'm sure i am saving just as much considering the amount of gas and time i was wasting the other way. and i'm still getting a good deal.
now i do this for practical things that i really need, like last week's nature's bread and skippy peanut butter.
for stuff that i really don't need stock of, like cookies and ice cream, i will continue to just buy one and use one coupon.

food lion internet printables (FLIPS)

have you checked the list of food lion coupons lately?
there are some good ones out.
here are a few of my favorites...

$1 off (1) box of Dixie Brown Sugar (Light or Dark)
$2 off $10 or more in Butcher’s Brand Beef Products
$2 off and purchase of $6 or more in the Produce Department
$1 off any Deli Items over $2.99

sunday paper coupon preview 11/22

here's what we will be getting.
just one smartsource.
this may be a good weekend to invest the $2 you usually spend on extra papers to order exactly what you want from ebay.
here's a post about that.
and another from saving with shellie.

store brand coffee coupon

have you used your crispix 75¢/1 coupon yet?
i posted earlier that HT has this bogof.
use this coupon ($1/1 IE or FF) with it to get some cheap harris teeter coffee.
crispix is $1.82, harris teeter whole bean coffee $3.97.
final price $3.29 for cereal and coffee.

thanks to uummm at hot coupon world.

*note* if you use these 2 coupons together, the second one will beep because it is coded for the crispix. it will need a manager override, not a problem at all at the davidson harris teeter. the cashier i had was a new girl, and she tried to tell me i couldn't use both. i pointed out that the $1 coupon was for the COFFEE. i persisted in a nice way. she called the manager over. the manager rolled her eyes (not at me, at the coupon, apparently she had seen it before) and pushed it right through.

not sure of walmart's price. if anyone goes, please post!
thank you anonymous, walmart price 88¢.

printables galore

one way to get lots of coupons for the things you like is to visit websites of those companies and get on their mailing list.
(tip: create a new email just for this. a free gmail or yahoo account works nicely)
they may have coupons right on the site or every now and then they may send you links to print coupons.
here are a few from around the blogs.
campbells/pepperidge farms
barbara's list (olive oil, organic stuff, contadina)
ginger's list
denise's list

if that's not enough, go to the coupon database and select the "printable" option under "source"!
i have discovered that with the database, unless you login, you don't see all the coupons.

target trip 11/15 price matching

today i learned about price matching.
i was going to get some kraft marshmallows using the $1/2 target printable and a price match from walmart that would make them $1 each. the normal target price is $1.19.
i went to check out and the cashier told me that price matches have to be done at customer service, but that she could check me out, then i could get the difference refunded.
so, i paid $1.19 x 2 = $2.38 - $1 = $1.38 for 2 or 69¢ each.
then, i go to customer service to get my 38¢ price match refund and the girl is totally confused. when she rings it up to do the price match, it tells her i owe her money.
because of the crazy way the target coupons adjust the price on the receipt, it looks to her like i paid 69¢ each and the walmart price of $1 would increase the price. i laughed and told her not to worry about it, i would just go to customer service first next time.
the moral of the story is, if you have a price match, go to customer service and let them do it!

DD says it's a shame it didn't get the 38¢ back because i probaly could have bought 50 boxes of cereal with it :)
