Meijer MPerks

Welp, Meijer is jumping on the Digital Coupon Bandwagon. It's sort of cool, now that I've caught up with the rest of the world and got a texting phone (read: my old phone was dropped at the bottom of Lake Leelanau for 20 minutes, not to be resurrected, even though we did put it in a bag of rice, take it apart and left it in the hot sun to dry out. Fortunately, we were eligible for an upgrade! Woohoo!).

Anyyyyyyyyyyhooooooooo -

Check out Bargains to Bounty's post here about the new Meijer coupon program. I signed up, the coupons that are available right now are sort of lame and, of course, mostly for Meijer products, but they do have a $5 off the purchase of $5 one available...which, to me, translates into FREE MILK, baby :) Although, now that milk has gone down to $2.49/gallon (regular price!) I'll have to throw in a bag of M&M's to get my total above $5.

Darn. :)

Raking in the Diapers

If you get the Parents or Parenting the Early Years magazine, you are going to want to check out this fantastic deal posted on MoneySavingMom here.

I was able to collect quite a few codes, some from the library and a couple from some friends (thank you!!!!), plus I added in 2 $5 Amazon gift cards collected from SWAGBUCKS (why aren't you swagging, yet??) and managed all in all, to have 3 BOXES of Easy Ups and 1 box of Size 5 diapers shipped to my FRONT DOOR for $22.60. I'm serious.

Do you know how AWESOME that is? We're talking about 364 diapers here! We're talking SIX cents per diaper, folks.

Wow. I think I can make it to Christmas on these babies.

Well, I get the bad blogger award. And randomly, today, I felt like blogging. Who knew?

Well, lots has happened since May 6th. Although, not particularly in the couponing world. Looking back to last summer, I can see that I definitely have the tendency to slack in the summer. Even though we are still within our budget (I haven't increased it any) I don't record my receipts and I am not as frugal as I should/can be. It's generally about this time in August, when I start feeling guilty and hie up the reins, bring back the old resolve to do better and get my b*tt in couponing gear.

On a happy note, though - I have body wash to last me for a year. :)

And one big thing that happened for us this summer, that sort of applies to couponing - in the sense that couponing is trying to make your finances work and being smart about your money/finances - is that we paid off our truck. Woo-hoo! 3 months early and now we own both our vehicles free and clear. Yay! That's a good feeling. And we did our entire vacation is cash. Double Woo-hoo!

It's little things, isn't it?

As far as bargains so far, the only thing I'm really down on is that there are really cheap Huggies wipies at Walgreens -->see here and even that, I missed the 15% discount. Boo.

and there is a Super Saturday Sale at Meijer -->see here, where I am going to stock up on toilet paper. The Kelloggs deal interests me, but I don't think I can collect that many coupons and I'm finding out that our family doesn't eat the sandwich crackers or cereal all that well. Although, we probably could for a $5 moneymaker.

All I need is one fantastic freebie deal to get me hooked again!

Nabisco 100 Calorie Packs

Woohoo - I can fulfill my $20.00 rebate with somemore cheap/free Nabisco 100 Calorie Packs. Thanks to this awesome post over at, I just saw that if you "like" Nabisco on Facebook, you can print off a coupon for a BOGO Nabisco 100 calorie pack. (Of course back space to do 2!)

Check out her post for info on the catalinas that print out when you buy these!

This week and Monday are my hectic week at work, so I haven't been able to post much or think about the deals for the week, but I wanted to be sure to post about this one!
