Unusual Target Trip for Wizard Michele


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Why was it an unusual Target trip? I'll get to that in a second. First of all, if you haven't seen the two deals on the Green Giant Steamers and Renuzit Air Fresheners, I went to Target today specifically for those two deals, plus one on the Campbell's Skillet Sauces. So I was happy when I found most of the items I went in for, in stock. I will say though that the assortments available were kind of disappointing, considering this store is huge, but I managed to get at least two different … [Read more...]

If you've been wanting to try these new Green Giant Steamers, now's your chance. You can score two bags for $0.75 each this week at Target.

Ready to score some cheap, or maybe even free Hallmark cards at Publix starting with the next ad? We're supposed to be seeing an in-ad coupon for Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) Hallmark greeting cards.

It's only letting you print one coupon, but hop on someone else's Facebook account, on a different computer, and print yourself another one. Then head to Publix and buy six cards … [Read more...]

Today’s Challenge; An Organized Purse


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

How do you keep an organized purse? Or do you??? I never used to keep mine organized and then one year for Christmas, probably about 7 years now, I received an awesome, but huge, Coach bag from my husband’s best friend. When I switched out from my old one, I still had tons of room to spare. What did I do? Filled it up with more stuff of course. Filling it up ensured I always had what I needed at any given time, but an organized purse it was not! It was pretty cool though. Anything anybody … [Read more...]

How Do You Organize the Kitchen?


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

When it comes to organizing the house, one of the toughest challenges is when we have to organize the kitchen, I think. There is just so much that goes in this room that it can be overwhelming, especially if you have a bunch of stuff in there you hardly, if ever, touch. There are the items you received when you got married or moved into your very first place. There’s the stuff you’ve gotten as gifts through the years, hand-me-downs that friends and relatives just KNEW you could use, even though … [Read more...]

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

If you like Nexxus products, you’re going to love this Nexxus Deal at CVS.

If you have $10 in ECBs to use towards your transaction, like I did, it … [Read more...]

Want to See 100 Percent Savings at CVS?


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

I'd like to see 100 percent savings too, but we’ll have to settle for 99.8% ;-) I wasn’t planning on doing any shopping today, but then I got to reading Facebook posts and that 20% off Savings Pass WAS burning a hole in my pocket, so I decided to put a quick trip together. I saw that there was a month-long Nexxus deal going on, and since this product is on my hairdresser’s “passable to use on my hair if I’m not going to buy from him” list (ha ha), I decided to put my deals together and head … [Read more...]

I did a little shopping yesterday, including a Publix shopping trip, yeah! It’d been so long, I almost forgot how to do this. I’ve run into a store for something here and there, but as far as doing a full shop, coupon/matchup round-up and all, it’s been some time. It came back to me quick though and I was able to put two pretty decent shopping trips together. I saved 86% at Publix and 95% in my CVS shopping trip. All in all, it was a pretty good day. This Publix Shopping Trip picture … [Read more...]

I've been jonesing for a CVS shopping trip and after looking at the CVS Matchup for this week, I knew right where I had to go yesterday, even though it was Football Sunday. I was meaning to do the Revlon deal last week, but just never got around to it so I was happy to see it was still going on. That was a close one! Then I spotted the P&G deal and the Almay eye makeup remover one and started making out my Shopping Spreadsheet. I had $14 in ECBs to use going in, so that certainly cut down on … [Read more...]
