- Kari O. recommends The West Wing: “I looooooove this show! The single seasons are very expensive and this version is worth every penny. My husband gave me this for Christmas. It has been $200 for years but was an in store Best Buy special in Nov for $80.”
- Stacy says: “I would suggest Costco or Sams for a birthday cake. There prices are so reasonable and everyone has always complimented the cake! The only drawback I would say is the choices of decorations for the cake is limited, but my kiddos have always been able to find one they like!”
- Cari agrees: “I agree, Sams club cakes are yummy and inexpensive. I spent big bucks on a cake once and my 2 year old was left alone in the kitchen for 30 seconds and pulled in down off the kitchen counter!!!! It stayed in the plastic container so we still served it but it wasn’t as cute =P”
- So does jackie: “I agree Sam’s club for cakes! 1/2 sheet cakes are only $17.xx.”
- A Costco endorsement from Outlander: “I highly recommend Costco cake because I looooove their cakes! They are filled with wonderful mousse- chocolate cake with chocolate mousse or white cake with vanilla mousse! Yes, they are big (half sheet), but for $17 bucks I gladly send some home with the guests and give to the neighbors. Also, when I have leftovers, I like to cut off the top frosting and just eat cake with the mousse! Yummy!”
- Jen k shares: “My friends have been happy with Mariano’s cakes. One even got a cupcake “cake” which was great for the little ones.”
- Kate offers: “I feel this may be a plug, but I don’t mean to overstep any boundaries! I am a baker. I have a small baking business I run from home. I started about 4 months ago, but have been baking since I was a little girl. I am in Naperville, and would be happy to do a custom cake or cupcakes or anything you wish! I can give you a menu, references from other customers, samples, etc. I aim to please and keep my prices low. If you, or anyone else, is interested in ordering, please contact me at: thekitchenkonfectionary @ gmail (dot) com ! I will offer a 20% discount to any MUM reader who wants to order!”
- Amy comments: “I kinda love Jewel cakes, have always been happy with them, they will put sprinkles on the outside if you ask, always a hit for my little ones and they don’t charge extra for it.” I do too! It’s the “moistest cake ever” or something. Yum!
- Lisa reports: “I was at CVS in Barrington last night. The cashier told me that three weeks ago CVS changed their policy and is now accepting expired ECB’s. Hopefully, he had accurate information!” The official policy hasn’t changed, but some stores take them. It definitely isn’t guaranteed, but worth asking if you have some expired ECBs.
- Something to look for from Patty: “Last week I found rebate forms attached to the Snapple 6packs at CVS. Free Snapple!” $1.00/1 6-pack bottles of Snapple tea or juice drink coupon here.
- From Alex: “Kool Aid Jammers are only $1.79 when pricematching Target. In the beverage section there is a $0.5 manufacturer. your down to $1.29. There’s also an ibotta I found today for $0.5 back. With a pricematch, coupon, and ibotta, a 10 pack of Kool Aid will only cost $0.79 or $0.07 per pouch.”

- Caroline posts on Facebook: “BTW There was a Vlasic coupon for .75 off this past weekend.”
- A deal erin found: “smirnoff deal at jewel: buy 8 x 11.99 equals $95.92 minus 10% equals $86.32. use 8 x $2 in ad coupon equals $70.32. send in for $50 rebate coupon found on tag on bottle equals $20.32/8. equals $2.54 plus tax each. found tags at sugar grove jewel.Yey! just in time for all the weekend parties!”
- Cari adds: “Did exact Smirnoff deal today. My total was $84.40 with all the crazy liquor tax. I also found hang tags for $1 off 2 Liter 7Up wyb Smirnoff so I grabbed 4 7 UP too. Coupon made them $0.50 each. I didn’t want to steal all the hang tags so I settled with 4. =P”
- Here’s one sent over by Stacy: “I would like to make my own dog food for my pooch. Does anyone have any good recipes they can share? Thank you!”
- Lisa emails: “Also if you ever have made a purchase at Sunglass Hut, a couple of times of year they send me two coupons. One is for $50 off of a pair of sunglasses (I can’t remember exactly how it’s worded….I’m not into $200 sunglasses anymore). One is for $20 off, no minimum, no exclusions. Every time I receive this coupon, I go to a Sunglass Hut and I purchase three 30 count boxes of pre-moistened lens towelettes. They are $6.99 each and I pay $1.04 for three. These are great to throw in the car, in your purse or just to have at home.”
- Matt noticed: “The Wheaton Ultra has 100 ct. Glad Zipped Sandwich bags for $1.88. I thought that was a good deal because the Ziploc 100 ct. Sandwich bags were $3.99.”
- A find from laura: “I was at ultra in Wheaton yesterday, all of the kraft miracle whip had peelies for $1 off any tuna when you buy miracle whip or kraft mayo. So after the Facebook coupon, and the peelie, one jar of miracle whip and one can of tuna for $1″
- Julie says: “There’s a printable on coupons.com for $1 off 1 12-pack of Minute Maid, making these just 4 for $4.88!”
- Jen warns: “FYI, don’t buy those spideman shoes pictured here! Cute, but they are cheap quality and the lights stop working pretty quickly. I bought some for my son for xmas and they stopped working 2 weeks after he started wearing them. I started looking around and turns out lots of people had the same thing happen. (See reviews on Amazon too.) Junky construction–wouldn’t waste your money on that particular style!”
If you signed up for Totsy a while back and have been getting emails about their blowout sales, here’s why: They are the latest deal of the day site to be going under! So, keep that in mind when deciding whether to order…
