This Week's Shopping List

Rumor has it that next weekend, there will be 3 stores offering special coupon events (doubles and triples). I will not be partaking this time, but I will try to at least let you know the details of the events when I have the details confirmed. The three stores are Harris Teeter, Bloom and Shoppers. My favorite is Bloom. They seem to have less rules and sometimes give overages.

To tide you over until then, here are few picks for shopping this week:

I did not even look at the produce deals, because Food Lion's coupon is still valid and that would make any produce a better deal there (see my Food Lion post for details).
--Hunt's Ketchup is .99, use the $1/2 coupon from a Sunday insert and get it for .50/each
--Ken's Marinades are BOGO, regular price is $2.89, use two of the $1/1 coupons from a Sunday insert and get 2 for .89
--Pepperidge Farms Goldfish are BOGO, regular price is $2.19. I don't have a coupon for these, but you don't see these on sale often.
--Utz Potato Chips are BOGO, regular price is $3.79. That just seems high to me. This is for a 10 oz bag. When did junk food get so expensive?
--Turkey Hill Ice Cream is $2.39, there was a coupon in one of the inserts for $1 off 1 Turkey Hill Dynamic Duo.

-- Soy Joy Money Maker-- you may or may not like Soy Joy, but it is a money maker and since my kids will eat most things, I will probably do this. The deal is buy 4 for $4 and get $4 ecbs (extra care bucks, basically money you can spend on anything at CVS), limit 4. So they are already free after ecbs. This means you could buy 16 for $16 and get $16 ecbs. There was a coupon a couple of weeks ago for bogo Soy Joys, so if you had 8 coupons, you could buy $16 for $8 and get $16 ecbs. There was also a $2 on 10 coupon, that you could use, if you don't have 8 bogo coupons. Here is a link for $1 off $5.
-- ATTENTION ROBIN, Star Bucks or Dunkin Donuts Coffee is $6.99. This deal may be decent with the $1.50 coupon from If you haven't already printed those coupons, then it is too late now.
--Aveeno Sunblock - buy $20, get $10 ecbs. Go to to get $2 off 1 coupons (you can print 2), here is a link for $2 off Aveeno Suncare, and go here to get an assortment of coupons for the Aveeno Ageless line. These are on sale for $9 (so you would have to buy 3). This might be a good deal if you like this product. I think this is too much for sunscreen.

Rite Aid:
Rite Aid has a number of items BOGO this week. Nothing that I wanted. Remember their regular prices are inflated at drug stores, so you could get a good deal when combined with coupons, but beware. Also, there is a $5 off $25 coupon you can print on the coupon printer to the left of this post. GIVE THEM THAT COUPON FIRST, before any other coupons to get the best deal.
-- Lamisil is $9.99, get back $9 in Single Check Rebates (SCRs) = $1
--Skin Clinic Wart Remover $14.99, get $14.99 SCR = FREE
--Crest $2.69, get $2.69 SCR = FREE
--Suave Deodorant $1.99, get $1.49 SCR = .50
-- Ace Bandages $3.99 - $2 SCR = $1.99, select varieties

So here is a money making scenario for you:
1 Lamisil $9.99
1 Skin Clinic Wart Remover $14.99
1 Crest $2.69
Total = $27.67 + tax
- $5 coupon from the coupon printer to the left of this post
-$26.68 SCR
= 4.01 Money Maker!
