Getting paid to shop!

I'm in one of the lucky test areas for double coupons so here's what I bought today:

1st Walmart stop (Barboursville, WV)

10 Ortego Taco Seasoning Packs at $.78 each less $.50 coupon doubled = $2.12 PROFIT (Price override of $.28 (this is how this store adjusts for the double coupon) - $.50 coupon value again)

4 Brut deodorants price matched to Kroger at $1 each - $1 coupons for each = $.24 for all 4 (taxes only)

2 trial size Tide laundry detergent at $.97 each less $.50 coupon doubled =
$0.00 (Price override of $.47 - $.50 coupon value)

40 trial size Degree deodorants at $.97 each less $.75 coupon doubled = $20.67 PROFIT (Price override of $.22 - $.75 coupon value)

Final taxes = .82 for non-food purchases and .08 for food purchases


Walmart stop #2 (Hurricane, WV)

4- 2 bar boxes of Irish Springs soap at $1.00 each (Price override of $.50 -   $.50 coupon value)= .12 taxes

Upcoming sale on Coke 2 liters at CVS! Stock up price!

CVS is going to have Coke 2 liters on sale July 3-9 for $0.69 EACH (limit 5). My recommendation would be to take this ad to Walmart and price match because you won't be limited on your number. If this is something you really would like to stock up on, I'd also check on coupons since you have time to get them. I'd recommend eBay. The only coupons I'm really seeing on there are "Buy 3, Get 1 Free" which would make each 2 liter $0.54 after taxes. Be careful though that you aren't ruining your savings by overpaying for the coupons!

Nazareth House

Today was my first trip to the Nazareth House in Huntington. After we carried our goodies inside I asked the guy for a tour and he obliged. He told me how they work and what happens when someone comes in. He said that right now they are in need of Peanut Butter and Macaroni and Cheese. He also said they would be stocking up soon on Fall and Winter clothing. They were very grateful to us for all we have done but we are only doing our jobs as Christians to help others. That's why we do what we do- for Him. So if anyone has any extras- food, personal care items or even clothing- we'd be glad to take it for you.

What I'm buying this week

The only thing that I'm planning on getting this week is Ritz Crackerfuls at Target for FREE and $.97 (after taxes) a box. They are supposedly on sale for $2.40. Target has a coupon for $1 off and I ordered 20 manufacturer coupons for $1.50 off which will be adjusted to down to $1.40 off. Since I can only print out 2 Target coupons per printer, I'll be getting 4 boxes for FREE and up to 16 boxes for $.97 each. I'd be willing to give you some of the $1.50 coupons if anyone wants them to stack with the Target coupons.

Week of 6-19 to 6-25 "Extreme Deals" as told by

According to, Extreme Deals are those 80% or more off:

You do have to sign up/log in but it is well worth it.
