They also have a supplemental ad this week that will run for about 2 weeks:

DaTe NiGhT!!!!

So yesterday my hubby and I had a long anticipated and much needed date night. 


We live in a smaller city so other than dinner and a movie there's really not that much to do but hey we will take what we can get. Of course our date included coupons and deals (hubby expects it now) so here's the breakdown!


We went to a nice dinner at Longhorns. The waitress, who was very nice, forgot the appetizer (OMG you have to try their shrimp & lobster dip! My hubby is not a seafood guy but this has converted him lol) so when we reminded her she apologized and informed us she would take it off our ticket. I was sad b/c i really wanted but her next statement made my day! She said "and I'll get it right out to you!" Woo Hoo we were not only getting our dip but it would be FREE!! Who wouldn't love that! 


Our bank has a reward points program tied to our checking account so we had accumulated enough points to get a $50 gift card. Fellow couponers it was so hard not to get a Walgreen's card lol but i wanted to be fair. So I got a restaurant card. Dinner was $40.94 and I gave a $4 tip so total $44.94; used the gift card and we still have $5.06 left. I plan on reloading the card and saving it for a rainy day! 


Now since we didn't know if the gift card would be here by date night we budgeted $45 total for date night. Which would have allowed us to go to another one of our faves: Logans! (They have an awesome 2/$15 menu!) followed by a matinee movie. Well speaking of movies: remember that $4 deal sprint had a day ago well I got 2 tickets and used them for the late night showing of Final Destination 3D. Tickets to 3D movies are $13 at our local theatre. So I paid $8 for $26 tickets. Yep I'll take that any day! Thanks Sprint!


So out of the $45 we have eaten and watched a movie yet we only spent $8; now being a coupon shopper i had an itch and hubby knew it when I kept talking about the deals i needed to pick up sometime before the week ended lol. We headed to walmart where they were having a "CLEARANCE SALE" my 2 favorite words!! Our daughter needed some new clothes anyway and my sister always taught me to buy out of season, so I got her some summer outfits. We went to the school supply section looking for zip up binders for the giveaways I love to do, well nothing had a price so i took 4 to the counter...$15 uh no, $12 uh no, $5 (insert angels singing and bells going off here) so i snagged one and yes I'll be going back to get more!! Also picked up some binder pencil bags for $.75 and calculators for $1. Also stopped by WAGS and got another Keri Lotion as I have very dry skin and can always use this. ($6.99-$2MQ and get $5 RR back) 


So I enjoyed my hubby! got some good food, great deals and still had a few bucks left over. I would say Date Night August '11 was a success!

Vocal Point





Mott's Coupon







Have you tried Vocal Point? If not you should sign up! It is awesome! They provide great samples that always come with coupons. Enjoy this coupon for $.55 off some yummy juice!

Winn Dixie 8/10-8/16

Here is the new Winn Dixie Ad: August 10- August 16

Here are a few tips I use to maximize my savings:

  • when buying BOGO meat purchase the 2 cheapest ones available(we are only a family of 3 including a 3 year old)
  • find out what day your butcher marks down the meat; Stores have a certain day to sell the meat by but this doens't mean it's bad. Take it home and freeze or use immediately!
  • if it's not on sale do not buy it, especially if you know it's cheaper at another store
  • shop the clearance aisle
  • use coupons with sale prices. Last week WD had their gummies on sale 2/$4 this is a fairly good price but the deal was sweeter because I had a coupon for buy 2 Kellogg's gummy snacks and get $1.50 off store bread~ guess what was only $1.40 that week....you got it store bread!!
  • try to shop without hubby and children lol we all love them but they tend to pick up items that may not be on your list. Use this as your "me" time. 
  • we all live in Reality so there are times we cannot shop alone. Bring snacks so children won't be fussy, and get the buggy with the "car" cart. It'll make a more pleasant shopping trip for you and them.


For the best Winn Dixie matchups check out our friends over at

Expo Markers



This week at Walgreens they have the 2 pack of Expo Markers for $.99!


There are 2 coupons out that will make them free when you buy 2 packs. It will create $.02 overage so i would pick up a very inexpensive (peppermint, pencil) filler just in case. 


The first coupon can be found here on their Facebook page:
expomarkers


The second coupon is on Coupons.com under zip code 55555
Disclaimer: this was a very HOT coupon and may be gone :-( sorry

Back to School

Who else can't believe that it is already August? Time to go back to school! Did you know that back to school shopping has become like a second Christmas to retailers? Great deals and sales are all over the place this time of the year so be on the look out. Here are a few tips to help you out.
  • Shop your house for school supplies you may have had a surplus of last year and have forgotten about.
  • When shopping for clothes look for things that can be layered to go from the summer to the winter chill. 
  • Take advantage of tax-free weekends. (This weekend, Alabamians!)
  • Reuse zipper binders, cloth book covers, dividers and anything else that is still in good shape and can get the job done.
  • Set a up a swap party to exchange clothes and books (think required reading!).
